Smile, you are at rise! A la prochaine!
Rise No. 2 always does a good job. Cool, understated, casual elegance with an excellent, creative, authentic, non-chainy menu, food, service and vibe - that's what the people want, and that's what Rise No. 2 does. Surprisingly good place for a first date because you can hear each other talk. It's not really a great place if you're in a huge hurry. That's just not the way souffles work. That said, our waitress kind of forgot about us for a pretty good while. It worked out fine because my date and I were chatting up a storm and the time just flew by, but still - not cool.
This was my first visit to Rise and it reminded me of my trip to France. I tried the seasonal duck L’orange soufflé and cranberry champagne dessert soufflé . Both were wonderful. They also had $16-20 wine flights which are 2 oz pours of 4 different wines of a certain variety. There is patio dining and a cute Eiffel Tower selfie spot too. Oh I almost forgot to mention the bread. I truly thought I was back in France. Eat the carbs-it’s so worth it!
I was here for a week day lunch with a friend. We each ordered a soufflé for main course (spinach, truffle mushroom)and split one for dessert (cranberry) All three were delicious! My only issue was that for me it was a little too much of the same thing - which was totally my issue, not the restaurant’s. So, when I go next with my husband, probably for dinner, I think we will share an entree and a soufflé, and that should be just right. With a soufflé for dessert, of course!
It was just ok. Must write 50 words? Don’t know what to say other than it was just ok. Let’s see, our table was by a serving area, which was not pleasant. An area where extra utensils were kept so servers were constantly by us. It was so cold we had to keep our coats on. Ambience was lacking, possibly due to where we were seated. And again, the food was just ok.
Nice Sunday lunch and dessert.
As expected all went great. Thanks
Best savory soufflé ever!
Always wonderful at Rise.
On our wedding anniversary we decided to enjoy dinner here. The soufflé’s are so yummy. I love the ambiance. Service is great. Wine selection is really good! Started with cheese cart and thenwWe had the salmon soufflé and also the crab soufflé.
I've been here multiple times, the souffles are a new thing and they are good! Only issue is that the dessert souffle this time around was very watery and the consistency wasn't there for me.
We normally come here during our business lunch and it take time so I wish they were a bit more speedy with the services since we do not have 2 hour lunch breaks.
Other than than I love the bread, all the soups and salads and most of the souffles!
Quite different dining experience than just a regular restaurant!
Would recommend to others for sure!
We had the best time celebrating our Christmas dinner! We took our time catching up and were never rushed. The good was so good. It always is! Rise never disappoints.
My only complaint was the size of the table and the fact that my server was a bit rough and not very attentive.
Love Rise! One of my all time favorite places.
Delicious and fun! Loved the marshmallow soup and the variety of soufflés. Can't wait to return!
I recently had an anniversary dinner here with my lovely wife. The host was very gracious and gave us a great overall first impression of the establishment. Our server Joshua was very attentive and helpful with recommendations while we were perusing the menu. The marshmallow soup and duck à l’orange soufflé were excellent, by the way. We really could not have asked for better service. I highly suggest anyone to come to this restaurant for any occasion. It had great ambience without being overly stuffy. I would definitely come back.
We had a wonderful lunch at Rise! Many thanks to our server, Joshua. He did a great job. We'll definitely be back.
So sorry to see this closed. I do hope they re-open in Houston again. They had great servers, amazing choices for food. We loved meeting up here.
One of the best meals I had. The marshmallow soup is a must have. We shared that and then a creamed spinach souffle. For dessert, Grand Marnier souffle. Everything was magnificent and Denise, our server, was outstanding. We will be back!
Food was excellent and our server was outstanding— very knowledgable and efficient.
We had a great lunch today! Food was amazing and the service was first class. The soufflés were incredible along with the baguettes. We’ll definitely be back!
I took my two daughters to Rise. We had a great time. Food was excellent and the service was very good. We'll be back.
Everything about this place was amazing. The service was great all around as well as the food. It’s unique, yummy, and such a great atmosphere.
Love every time I go!! Can’t wait to go again!!!!!!!
One of my favorite places as the experience & food never disappoints! I always recommend Rise to my friends especially for date nights & special occasions.
everything was delicious but the cheeses were exceptional!!! Service was great
Excellent service and management
Great experience as always, not my first time there, Honestly, I wasn’t expecting nothing but the same level of service I always get.
The Rise #2 in the Houston Galleria area never fails. The food is consistently outstanding and the service is always exceptional. We’ve recommended Rise #2 to many friends and acquaintances. All, have provided high-praise for Rise #2 and thank-you’s for the suggestion of the location as a “dine-out favorite”.
We LOVE Rise No. 2--everything is delicious--like a trip to Paris without the plane ride.
Birthday. It was noisy but a great rxperience
What a delight! So glad I finally came, wish it was sooner. Can't wait to be back and make this my neighborhood cozy delicious haunt!
Best steak I've ever had at a restaurant and the raspberry champagne is definitely a must-try. Everything is for purchase and love how they recycle/repurpose items
Very enjoyable experience- food food and great service.
Everything was perfect as usual!
This is a must go to place when you are in Houston! There is free garage parking or you can choose to valet if you wish. I had gone with a few work friends and we could not stop talking about how delicious it was. We had the Duck Souffle and one had the Salmon Salad (loads of Salmon!) and a souffle for dessert. They were just the perfect size and not too heavy. For desert we had Grand Mariner and Banana's Foster souffle and the creme brulee. We all shared so we can taste everything. I highly recommend going here and will be making a stop again before I leave Houston.
One of my favorite restaurants in Houston!!
Awesome thank you 🎉🎉🎉
