My wife and I shared the 3 course meal. As an appetizer we had oysters Rockefeller which were very good. We both had Caesar salad’s that were very good. Our steak was cooked to our liking as she like medium rare and I like rare. The chocolate bag dessert was fantastic. After reviewing their happy hour specials I believe we will make this a regular stop of ours.

The hostess is very good! The Cobb salad Tower was not as good as usual...avocado was less fresh and the overall salad did not taste as fresh. The waitress seemed more in a hurry to take orders and less conscious of honoring request to give us time vs. rushing. There were only a few tables with guests in the dining room at the time. Overall, I still enjoy going there with a guest...noise level is not a problem.

I chose to celebrate my birthday with my family here and it was quite a disappointment. The restaurant was understaffed and we had to wait quite some time at the table before a waiter showed up. The drinks were poorly mixed by the bar.
The quality of the food was good though.

I came with my husband for my birthday. We sat outside as it was a nice evening.
The service was great and attentive. We ordered the coconut shrimp and it was delicious. For dinner, we split the beef medallions and twin lobster tails. Mine was great, but my husbands lobster needed more cooking time. But it was fixed immediately with no problems. Overall, it was a wonderful dinner.
We did use our $25 gift for my birthday since we are members of the Landry’s club.
We will definitely be back.

Service was marginal at best. The food flavor and presentation left a lot to be desired. They over charge for every modification. The atmosphere is the only thing that saves the restaurant in my opinion.

Waitress was new (and needed more training). Had to even ask for bread (and wasn’t given a knife for the butter). Small thing, but hey...needed more training. Music was “weird” and loud..not fitting for the venue. Service was slow (and restaurant wasn’t that busy). Don’t mind waiting for good food, but “hip hop” music made it not very enjoyable.

Took so long to serve the food even though there were so few patrons that night. Because we had young children they seated us in a booth in the back of the restaurant and our server wouldn’t come back for long stretches of time that our drinks ran empty. The food was so-so. Disappointed.

It was Sunday afternoon; very light crowd...but kind of noisy. Our waiter, George, was nice but seemed to be new.

I've been here a handful of times for happy hour, but never for dinner. I went in for lunch during HRW (Houston Restaurant Week) and was very impressed. Service was attentive and entertaining, and our food arrived in an appropriate amount of time and tasted perfect!

The salmon was the best I have ever had. It was flakey and melted in my mouth. The sauce on top was silky and the stuffing ample. My guest thoroughly enjoyed his shrimp and lobster roll. It looked so appetizing and he said it tasted even better. The clam chowder was also very good. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

Our server only came by once during the meal to see us and nver bothered to refill our water glasses.

I know it is the business of the restaurant to sell, but I resent everyone who comes to my table trying to "upsell" me on something, like the latest and greatest appetizer which is, according to the waiter - DELICIOUS!!! I do not wish to be sold - I wish to buy and I find it extremely distasteful to fend off all of the sales people that approach my table.

Food good seating good only issue was I had to go ask who our wait staff was as we were seated for awhile no one ever showed . Once I informed the hostess they sent a waiter who was less than enthusiastic about waiting on us did not offer bread I had to ask. He bright bead 1small loaf for a table of 4. I asked for more bread and was informed it was baking then received the bread again it was cold. We were not offered the HRW menu I had to ask for that as well yet did not order from it. Waiter appeared very uninterested. Yet food was good bread no service no. I went with my team to see if we wanted to host a bigger business gathering and unfortunately not

We went for a HRW lunch to celebrate a birthday.

Pros:
The food was great, the decor was really nice.
Our waiter was helpful with our menu questions.

Cons:
My seat had crumbs on it so I asked the host to wipe the seat.
The strawberry bibb salad had too much dressing on it.
I also had to ask my waiter numerous times to refill my water.

Waitress brought my wife the wrong steak. How do you mix up someone saying 6 oz fillet with prime rib? Not impressed at all.

This was my second time at this location. The first time was for Mother's Day a few years ago. I remember it not being a good first time visit.

The group decided to try it for restaurant weeks, again... epic fail. The service was just... ok.The food was just... ok. The steak was very over cooked. The redo took about fifteen-twenty minutes for a medium rare steak; way too long. Dessert was the best course of dinner. Bonus was not having to pay full price for dinner, thanks HRW!
