We had a great time and service is impeccable as always. But I ordered the scallops and was disappointed; they were overdone and I found the dish overpriced compared to what you get - size, quality of scallops, garnishes etc. I don’t believe in waisting food so I didn’t send it back. Other than that my table enjoyed their dishes.

Great menu choices and ambiance. The food was fresh, hot and delicious! The dark woods, marble, tile and brass along with the intimate booth seating made the atmosphere very special. I’d definitely go back.

I was disappointed. We had booked this restaurant for a business dinner because I had been to one in NYC. One of our attendee's steaks was not cooked properly and it was returned. It was not correct the second time either and they had to prepare another steak. Unfortunately, it did not arrive until everyone else was finished eating. Understand things happen, however they still ended up charging us for the entree after all of the inconvenience and never once offered to compensate us in any way. The waiter simply said to please know it was not his fault......Unfortunate

Terrible service from the waiter. He never came by to see how was the food and he never came by to ask if we wanted more water or drinks; had to flag down a different server for that. At these prices I expect much better.

Our service was terrible. My colleague and I each had a Cesar Salad. It was drenched in a very poor dressing and covered with crutons. It was practically inedible. The service was so poor that we left after the appetizer course.

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...

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.
