We thought the service was ok. I got my salad before the appetizer. Drink order was wrong. Calamari was more batter than calamari. Pasta dishes were ok.
We love the food here, and we are also charmed by the decor. A fun downtown place!
Great! Brunch was good and service was great
Staff was very friendly. Service and food was great. I will be returning with more friends next time.
We had reservations for 6:45. We arrived at 6:48, and we had to wait for our table to be set up even though there were multiple empty tables already set up. After we were seated we waited 15 minutes before a wait person cam to our table. Food service slow and chaotic. Twice we were brought first course dishes after we had eaten ours and once while we were finishing our second course.
Food was good and we enjoyed the gluten-free Italian cheesecake.
We were seated close to the kitchen and the chef's yelling was not pleasant at all. The food was good, but the server forgot to put our order in so we had to wait for over an hour to get it.
Went for restaurant week but ended up ordering off the menu. Margarita pizza had way too much cheese on it and was a small for dinner size. Ribeye was the most expensive thing but was greasy and the fries were under cooked. Overall, not impressed for a date night dinner spot. Fine if you’re going to a stros game but not for dinner.
Pizza was amazing and meatballs were out of this world. Delish sauce!!
First time dinning here. We take advantage of HRW - Brunch Menu. A great deal for only $20 and to support a very worth cause, Houston Food Bank. Our server, Cooper was very pleasant and all of the other staff who assisted him. I absolutely loved my first course, the polenta!
My only complaint was that the wait staff/servers were not wearing masks. And while I know there is not mask mandate in Texas, I think it would just help all patrons feel safer if service providers would mask up. What would be the harm? Nothing!
It was a fun and lighthearted time. Food was great and staff was on point.
Really enjoyed the HRW menu. Service was great. The pulled pork sandwich was a mouthful of flavor.
Calamari was small in size and portion, very underwhelming.
Excellent food and service
I met a friend for brunch and I would
definitely go back. The hostess was sweet and seated me immediately. My
waitress was also very sweet and attentive as I waited for my friend. The pastry board was a little disappointing, the pastries tasted refrigerated and not homemade. Banana Nut Bread French Toast was a real treat. Would love to try the lunch and dinner menu.
I did not care for this place at all. The person that brought our waters were rude. I ordered the corn ravioli and it was hard on the edges, only came with three raviolis and the server told me it came with a mushroom sauce and there were no mushrooms on the plate at all. Drinks were ok, small martinis. Will not go back.
We waited 30 minutes for two appetizers, I think our waitress forgot to ring them up. She then charged the check from the table next to us to our cc. No manager came to apologize or explain. Overall very disappointing.
The food was excellent.And the service was the best.
The food was amazing, and we love the place. Excellent service
With a reservation there is very minimal wait time before a game. Awesome location, delicious food and excellent service. Extremely busy, but they kept things running very smoothly. We will definitely be back and highly recommend Osso & Kristalla.
We had a great time! We had a great time but be sure to plan ahead of you’re going to an Astros game because they will be packed.
Great service and awesome food.
Terrible greasy food. Do not eat here
Awesome restaurant by the stadium, good service, good food and very nice Deco.
Had a fun time with my girlfriends for brunch. Our server, Aaron G., was wonderful and service was excellent. The drinks were great. The food didn’t bowl me over - it was good but I expected outstanding from the reviews I’d seen. We’ll return for cocktails and the ambiance!
Food is really good, people very kind. Good atmosphere
Great lunch, will return soon and would recommend to others
We made a reservation. When we got to the hostess stand the couple before us was chastised by the hostess for not having a reservation. We were early and the restaurant was at about 25% capacity. We were seated at what had to be the worst table in the dining room. I asked the hostess if there was another table available and she said “no” although only a handful of tables were occupied. I then asked if we waited til our reservation time would we be seated somewhere else. Again “no.” We walked out. Why bother with making a reservation? We should have asked to speak to a manger. Used to love this place...ended up having a fantastic lunch across the street at the Westin without a reservation.
Have only eaten there twice but there's a reason we've been back the second time very good food
Reasonably priced brunch menu. Enjoyed but felt like we were bothering the waiter for coffee and water.
We would like to thank Fabiana for her excellent service skills and accommodating our every need.
Very great food, wonderful service. Would definitely come back again!
Business lunch so low noise is important. Very capable of conducting business as well as great food and service.
The place is beautiful and the food is great but the service is horrible 😂🥴 I gave this place a second chance but the service is bad no matter who the server is. Even the manager seemed off. I never saw them walking around making sure everything was okay.
The restaurant was not busy, waitress was very kind, attentive and efficient, that was the highlight of the experience.
The food was mediocre at best, small portions, bland, boring presentations and akin to frozen food that was reheated. Frankly, it was awful.
A huge disappointment because it had an overall 4 star rating from over 300 reviews on Yelp. Perhaps Yelp should also post the aging of the reviews so we know how many were submitted within the last 24 hours, week, month and six months or more for the total of all ratings. Maybe this place was better years ago but it was a disaster last night, 5/19/2021.
Service was a bit slow. Management kept saying I dont know how you made a reservation on opentable on a game day. You need to turn off that function on opentable if you dont want to take reservations thru that site.
Marinara was a bit watery, pizza was good.
Very good food and large portions. Will visit again. Great when we have tickets to Astros games.
Mother’s Day brunch with family. Very good service. Food was tasty. Would suggest they add a few more options for those teenagers who are picky eaters 😊. This was our second time and we will be back again. A must stop in downtown Houston.
Our server was super sweet but couldn’t remember anything we asked for. I ended up eating a pizza that I didn’t order because she entered the wrong order in the system. I ate it because I didn’t want to wait.
Ordered an app, didn’t come out, told the waitress, she “put in order” again and it never came out. Waitress never checked on us, and pretty sure since gratuity was included she didn’t care.
