Espectacular lugar. Combina absolutamente todo, impecable servicio, excelente decoración y la comida, un placer para los sentidos. Altamente recomendable
The food was fabulous. The Chocolate sphere for dessert was the most creative and delicious dessert I have had ! Service was impeccable.
So disappointed that our sons car was broken into when parked with the valet service. As one can imagine, it put a huge “dark cloud” over what was a great evening. Hopefully the management team can find a way to address this problem.
It was great Service the waiter was very conscious about getting us out on time for the game. The table service was outstanding there were four of us and we were treated really well. I had the fish which was delicious and one of my other guest had the wagu steak and it was delicious. We really appreciated the Valet parking it was reasonable and very convenient!
We felt welcome and the food was wonderful. Portions are smaller, but well worth the money. Our servers were outstanding.
Awesome in short
The pasta was different for the Turtufo. It was still good just not as good.
Food and service was amazing, Potente never disappoints!
Backlit menus unique. Entrees delicious. Great location.
Food and service were amazing!! Our server Will had great recommendations and a great sense of humor!
Everything was great. Love it!
A very good meal. Staff was excellent. Food very good but pricey . Excellent wine list. Room we sat in though called the terrace room lacking energy from main dining room and somewhat drab.
Always great food and superior service!
We were greeted by Valentin, who advised us on all of our food and drink. He is a consummate professional. We had another wonderful evening at Potente.
The food, the wine, the staff...all top notch! My favorite restaurant in Houston!
Must try the octopus and the foie gras appetizers! Also loved the truffle spaghetti and paneed rabbit. Don't know when we will be back in Houston but we will eventually figure out a reason and come back to Potente. Don't miss this place!
Had confusion with waiter but maitre di help settle matter. Food was delicious especially desserts snd pasta truffle and hummus
Don’t go here
Everything was perfect from the hostesses that greeted us with a warm smile to the food, the wait staff and the awesome espresso martini we had at the bar before dinner.
We had a wonderful, perfect dinner.
Can’t wait to go back.
The food, drinks and service were great. Atmosphere is perfect for a romantic date night or Anniversary dinner.
Red carpet style. This place was amazing from the host to the food.
Our experience was delicious! Amy was fantastic! She was so helpful the entire night. Every dish was unique and beautifully played. We hope to come back soon. We are so glad we
Chose to celebrate our anniversary here. 💛
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!
