First time to Potente. The service was world class and the food was outstanding. I had the branzino and it was crispy and tasty. Will definitely return.
Always great food and very good service. The wine list is superior and ambiance very nice and inviting.
The vegetarian option was delicious as was the rest of the food we tried. Great, knowledgeable staff.
Amazing place, the service was incredibly nice. Food was amazing! We will be back
Anniversary. Super great place.
They have thought of everything at Potente, from the design and ambiance to the service and food. It was a fantastic expeience.
One of the best meals! We will be back. Perfect date night place. Best ambiance, service, food and experience in Houston.
Went for Houston Restaurant Week. Unlike most of the restaurants participating in HRW, there were numerous choices on the menu and portions were reasonable. We have been to many HRW restaurants over the years (e.g., Maison Pucha, Etoile, La Table, Amalfi, etc.), and this is the best one by far. Masraf's was always extremely good too, but it is closed now. We will go back to Potente outside of HRW because of our excellent experience during HRW.
We loved trying out Potente last night for Houston Restaurant Week. The food was absolutely amazing! The spaghetti al tartufo nero might be the best pasta dish I’ve ever had in the states. The Potente Gold cocktail was a beautiful spin on the old fashion, and the ice cube engraved with the restaurant name in it was next level presentation. The ambiance was very good but not as elite as the food and service. Will definitely be back again!
Celebrated two birthdays with a couple of dear friends. Both Emily and Vinnie took excellent care of us, and Jim Crane and Danny Trace came to our table to visit with us for a not. The HRW is the beat deal in town, and I hope to be back before Labor Day. The truffle pasta was delicious as was the octopus starter and chocolate dessert. The complementary hummus is a nice way to start the meal.
Visited for HRW and the food is so delicious! My only complaint is that we asked for the rest of our entree to be packed up and it was never given back to us. By the time we finished dessert and we had forgotten all about it. I guess we were expecting them to box it and give it right back but didn’t.
Awesome restaurant week experience! Food was great and portions were delightfully generous! Would definitely visit again!!
Fantastic food presented with elegance.
Potente was impeccable. Valentine made our experience amazing and gave it a unique taste from each course served.
Wow! From the moment you step foot in Potente, you realize it will be an amazing and unique experience. We went for Restaurant Weeks, and it was far and away the best HRW we have ever had! The food and service were both amazing and worth every penny! We’ll definitely be back!
First time, went for HWR 2021 and everything I ordered were DELISH! Food came out extremely fast! Service was great! Had an enjoyable night!
Everything was perfect except my dates ceased salad had some huge wedges and too much cheese which was melted on there. Otherwise the food, wine, and ambiance was perfect. Will definitely come again very soon!
Great experience! Amazing food
Very good service and food. Great for a date night. Menu is adult centric (no 'kids menu'). We did take our 10 year old son and he ordered the octopus and squid ink pasta (one of his fave meals) as well as the branzino from my plate. He said it was all really good.
Keep an eye out for whether there are events in the area on the night you go - Astros just finished playing when we went and traffic was awful and streets in the area were blocked off by police. Factor in more time if so.
Good and service was fantastic
Valentin was amazing!!!
Overall the experience was great. Service and food was outstanding minus the attitude the bartenders. One of the blonde have the worst attitude because of her I minus one star.
First visit- enjoyed the HRW menu. Great service from Valentine.
One of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had was from here. Great customer service as well
We were there to celebrate a friends 40th birthday. We really enjoyed the service and the initiate setting. The food was phenomenal. If you haven’t been there yet, this is a MUST in Houston.
We tried Potente for the first time. The hostesses and servers were very friendly & knowledgeable. The food was delicious. I really enjoyed everything. I would definitely come back and eat here again. There's also valet outside. Cost was $11 for valet.
First time visitor, using Houston Restaurant Week as the motivator. Service and food were both amazing. Great location and facilities.
This was my first time here and everything was amazing.
Delicious Houston Restaurants Weeks meal! What a great way to try several of the favorite Potente dishes. We had the scallop, the truffle pasta, and the strawberry cheesecake. Outstanding service and great wine selection, too. We will return when Houston restaurants weeks is over.
Excellent dining experience overall, as usual. Food, service, drinks, ambience, all first class.
Fantastic dining experience. Food was amazing and service impeccable!
We loved having Fredy as our waiter.
The food was delicious and absolutely amazing. The service was just ok. Both the hostess and the waiter were rude.
Food was excelent! Service by William was extraordinary, wine and food recommendations were on point. The place is a little bit loud but ambiance is beautiful.
Hands down the best restaurant in Houston.
The food was amazing and the service was great. Starting from the appetizers to dessert, everything was wonderful. Can’t wait to go again.
Visited Potente for HRW. Delicious food and great service.
Outstanding meal. Will, our server, was very good, knew the menu inside out, and would request in future in a heartbeat.
The food and service are always outstanding. Houston is lucky to have this restaurant.
