The service was fantastic! Food was amazing. Great experience overall. I recommend this place for date night.
Amazing! The food was delicious. Great staff as well.
Amazing all around!!
One of the great restaurants I’ve been too and I’ve been to a lot.
Fantastic dinner! We had the burrata salad, black truffle spaghetti, scallops, sea bass, tirimi su, limoncello desserts. This meal ranked in my top five meals of all time. The black truffle spaghetti is amazing! We shared it as an appetizer so we could try multiple menu items, but honestly, I won't share again. Hahaha! Sooo good! The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend Potente.
Wait staff and assistants were great. Really enjoyed the experience. Portions were reasonable for area but on the small side of scale. All in all the atmosphere, service and taste of food made up for it.
Excellent food and service! Can’t wait to go back.
From start to finish, Potente was exceptional. We appreciated the valet service & proximity to Minute Maid. We were looking for dinner before the Astros game, & definitely scored a grand slam. Potente is upscale, a beautiful restaurant - not your typical pregame fare. We were seated in a booth, intimate & quiet. Our waiter, Patrick, was professional, attentive, & friendly. When he brought us bread & smoked hummus starter, we knew it was going to be a stellar meal! I’d highly recommend the house-made truffle pasta to anyone with discerning palate. Lovely evening in every way. We’ll be back.
Amazing food and service. Everything we had was exceptional. Reasonable proces
First class dining. Attentive staff attractive entrees. Incredible wine list. Fair prices for the quality offered. Our party of 4 had one app (burrata salad) that was less than stellar but every other app/entree and dessert plate was scraped clean down to the china pattern. Go and enjoy
Early dinner before Astros Saturday night game (7:15 start) not usual 6:15. Perfect timing for a lovely, leisurely meal. Great creative food, great service.
Will do it again.
Excellent service, lovely table, great evening! We hope to return soon whennext in Houston.
Best Italian food and wine I’ve ever enjoyed! Service was superb as well!
Truffle pasta. Truffle pasta. Truffle pasta. Everything is good, and every time my coworkers and I go, we try something new. The scallops, beet salad, tuna starter, salmon, seabass... all amazing, but what we often order multiples of is the truffle pasta.
The food was phenomenal and service provided by David elevated our experience. We will be back soon.
We had an amazing dining experience. Food was amazing and presented like artwork. Maitre D Nate Jackson made sure that all of our needs were taken care of. Highly recommend Potente if you are seeking an upscale dining experience.
The service was outstanding and the food delicious. It is a bit on the high end for serving size; however, I expected that prior to my arrival. It is a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
Wonderful meal! We can't wait to enjoy Potente again.
What a wonderful experience we had at Potente. I will be happy to recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have an upscale and excellent experience while in downtown. The service was top-notch, even when the restaurant got busier in the night. I ordered the new lobster bisque-esque soup that was added to the menu that day. The meal was fabulous and presentation was even better. I then ordered the caccio e peppe with freshly shaved truffles - also such a great visual and even better taste! We ended our dinner by sharing the creme brulee and the tiramisu - both large desserts and more than enough to share. While the restaurant is pricey, it is worth the expense and will leave you wanting to come back for more.
The food and wine was outstanding. I highly recommend this place for date night or dinner with colleagues. Our waiter was a bit pushy (everything was an upsell for him), but that should not be seen as an indictment on the restaurant or the food. Definitely recommend.
Really great service and food
Great food, very nice wine list, service was lovely
The staff really went above and beyond with their service and accommodation of our special requests.
I appreciate your attention and service dinner was super special.
Entree was supposed to be grilled and arrived deep fried. I did not want to make a fuss at the time.
got engaged here. They put us in a private room which has a great ambiance. Food and service was incredible and they went out of their way to make it an enjoyable experience. We are really really appreciative for their flexibility in hosting us also! Would fully recommend it.
Superb service and food.
It was a good experience overall. Would go back for a special occasion.
I loved the veal but do not order the lobster ravioli. It was subpar. I’m not sure what happened with this dish. It was borderline stale. It looked like it was left out to dry while my dish was being cooked. I’m sure that there isn’t anything wrong with anything else on the menu but that item was a disappointment. The staff of extremely helpful and seem knowledgeable. The drinks are great. Wine by glass is okay. Like I said, the veal was amazing.
The meal was outstanding. The service impeccable, and each course was unique and visually appealing. I would definitely come back again.
Great service and food! Very attentive!
Great service. The pregame appetizers were incredible.
Outstanding food and excellent service. Another great experience at this downtown restaurant.
The service, restaurant, staff were incredible. We ordered two cocktails, the ravioli, the the fillet. All cooked and prepared to perfection. Our only hesitation on going back is the portion size is very small for the price. The ravioli dish was $39 and you get 3 raviolis 😲 Beautiful presentation and the best ravioli I have had but yikes. Would recommend if you are a upscale foodie that loves presentation over quantity.
Excellent service and food quality. Prices reflect it, of course. It was moderately but not exceptionally busy the evening we dined - a little busier would've been nice for ambiance.
Outstanding food in small portions. Superior service. Great wine list.
It was incredible--Celebrating my wife's birthday.
The Main Menu Had "Happy Birthday Jacqui", really cool.
Wait Staff was on it!!! Great service!!!
The Food was Outstanding!!!
Great selection of wines!!!
We'll be back for another Dinner!!!
It's definitely one of the top/best restaurants in the Houston area. The food was outstanding in taste and presentation. The wine list is favorable for an oenophile and reasonably priced. From start to finish, cocktails to desserts, our meal was exceptional!!! Thanks to our waiter Cameron and Maitre'D Nate.
