Since moving to the Houston area, I had envisioned of one day going to dine at M&S. I thought it was a pretty expensive restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised that was not the case. The location is ideal, the ambiance was as perfect as perfect could be. Our server was on point! She was attentive and got everything right. The food however was disappointing. I ordered the grilled seafood platter which looked good but lacked flavor. The best thing on my plate was the crab cake. I will give them another chance and try the steak. We shall see...

After review several places on OpenTable I decided to go with M&S. I wanted to take my husband somewhere special for his birthday, and I have to say M&S did not disappoint! Our waiter, Jesse, was so nice and professional. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and so we decided to take his advice. He recommended the oysters, lobster bisque, and the iced shrimp. Oysters, although they were a little on the smaller size they were just ok, but the shrimp were jumbo, and the lobster bisque was delicious!! He also recommended the Ultimate Mixed Grill for me and my husband opted for the Dry Rubbed Ribeye Steak. My mixed grill had crab cakes, two different kinds of cooked shrimp, and salmon sided with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. My husbands steak was so tender that he used his fork to cut it! This was the absolute best dinner we have had in a very long time!! I can't wait to go back!

Wonderful service! Wait staff was very knowledgeable of the menu, and were extremely efficient at refilling our drinks and keeping water glasses full. Food was absolutely delicious. Best crab cakes and bacon wrapped shrimp I’ve ever had for appetizers, and steak was flavorful and tender. Best steak I’ve had in quite a while. Will definitely be back again for dinner. Only thing is that there’s no parking close unless you valet. Other than that, perfect place for a date night!

It was my mom’s birthday. Kimberly called to confirm our reservation and she offered to print my mom’s name on the menu. Our server London was awesome! He helped us make good cocktail & food choices. I was disappointed when they came back to tell me they were out of the Texas Redfish. I ordered the snapper and it was good. Thank you for making us feel like valued customers. We will definitely return!!! Highly recommend!

Our server was terrible. Messed up the drink order right away and went down from there. Had to ask for bread. Our soup came AFTER our meal was served, no refills on drink or water, etc...

Great twist on classics with just the right amount of uptown vibe. Impeccable service you would expect from a Landry's establishment.

The meal was good but the waiter was a little slow in taking our order at first. He was attentive however as the meal was served. We received water refills regularly. I had steak and the flavor was so so. It was well prepared at medium, however.

Very good food, were we really surprised with everything. If we had to note any issues with our time there, it would be my wife asked for dressing on the side and wasnt given that. She was too embarrassed to address it because the waitress already felt bad about her "bad service" for not removing the bread plates and utensils before bringing the appetizers out.

Our 46 th anniversary , always go somewhere during Restaurant Weeks. We live close by, we can walk over and we know the food is good. Olivia was our waitress and she was awesome. Very pleasant very sweet and very professional. I ordered the scallops and my husband ordered the steak from RW menu. Both perfect. I love it there and will go back.

The stuffed salmon is excellent - very light and flavorful. We went on a Sunday evening - the restaurant was quiet and it a was great for carrying on a conversation with my family.

First time to this location downtown and was better than I expected. Everything was exceptional, including our waitress that was in training. She was very personable, attentive, professional, and really made us feel welcome. In comparison to Uptown location, where we had terrible service, I felt the downtown location is a model restaurant. Kudos to the restaurant manager and his excellent staff. We will be coming back.

We ordered from the Houston Restaurant Week menu which was very good and not huge servings so we we're satisfied but not "over-served". The restaurant was pleasant and quiet but we ate early, before the theater.

As usual, this place did not disappoint. Food was awesome. We went for HRW- and paid the upcharge for the beef (well worth it). the apple dessert was amazing! the service was just ok, but its so busy there, you have to give them a break. this was our first place for HRW and we were all glad we decided on it. :)
