This restaurant is always terrific. The wait staff is attentive, friendly, and efficient. The food is always great. Their souffles are unique. The soups are outstanding. Their seasonal specials keep us returning frequently.

I invited my sister to celebrate her birthday. The server tried to upsale us on wine flights, saying that would be a good way to celebrate. Too bad she offered absolutely nothing else to recognize my sister’s birthday. Service wasn’t bad but was merely adequate. Food was quite tasty. The ambience is not nearly as cozy as Rise No. 2 in Dallas.

Food was fantastic as always. Ditto for the service. Only complaint is that we were kind of cramped at a small table while the restaurant was fairly empty.

I’m a lover of French food and soufflés, and I’ve always red great reviews about the one in Dallas. I was in Houston for work, a couple of blocks from to hotel, so I thought I’d take advantage. Everything met my high expectations, from the wine flights to the friendly service, and all the soufflés in between. Loved it!!

Alex did a wonderful job from explaining everything about the menu, to the restaurant, we started with the marshmallow soup (try it, you wont be disappointed) we had a skeptic in our party who couldnt get past the name, however once she tried it, she loved it. Truly the best tomato bisque I've ever had! Next we moved on to the cheese cart. Introducing us to each cheese, how it's made, the region it's from alex did a great job with it. And we loved each of the 4 cheese we bought.
Next we moved on to the souffles. Between the 4 of us, we chose 3. The mushroom truffle was my favorite, the truffle shines nicely but does not overpower the mushroom cheesiness. The cauliflower was my aunts favorite, a bit more cheesy, although the cauliflower had a distinct texture to it that I did not care for. The sundried tomato one everyone loved. It was rich and different enough from the bisque that you did not feel as though it was the soup made in to the souffle.
For dessert(and we were full by this poi nt) we had a pumpkin souffle and the raspberry. All of it was amazing, get the chocolate sauce with the raspberry!! We were in awe as to how perfect everything tasted. Alex did a wonderful job from start to finish, thank you for a great experience!!

This restaurant is great to sit and visit and be waited on with a smile! We ordered the marshmallow soup and duck souffle. It was just delicious, so we ordered a pumpkin souffle for dessert. My friend started planning another day to get to go back.

The food is pretty good. But the soufflés are large and it’s too much of one taste and one texture. I think it would be a much more successful experience if there was a ‘flight of soufflés’ option, where you could maybe get 3 smaller soufflés.
Service by management and the hostess was great! More disappointing service by our server. When we told our server that 2 of the soufflés got switched (one friend got cauliflower and Brie, and one got salmon), his response was: that happens sometimes, they all look alike.

We were celebrating a belated birthday. My friend had not dined there yet, since she had just moved to the area, actually down the street from the restaurant, so I took her there. She went nuts! We split everything so we could both enjoy lots of different tastes and enjoyed every bite!! Thank you for doing that for us!

Rise #2 in The Galleria area of Houston never misses. The service is always great and the menu items are consistently outstanding. The combination works to result in a memorable experience. We have recommended Rise #2 to many friends and acquaintances. All have come back with a sincere "Thank You" and "Strong Rise #2 Endorsement"; especially, for the Staff Members. Rise #2 is always among our favorite dining spots.

We celebrated two birthdays and Rise2 made it extra special! Happy birthday and our names were spelled out on the table with Scrabble tiles. Our waiter, Joseph, was fabulous, and the food was all expertly prepared!
