The redone cafe Annie now Annie Cafe (big name change!) has a very cold, institutional ambiance. All hard services lacking in warmth and distinctiveness. Reminds one of an office building lobby. We had a late, light meal which was good. Not sure if we will return.

Loved my dining experience at the Annie Cafe. Orlando was our server and he was full of energy and very knowledgeable on the menu. From the drinks to dessert everything was delicious. I had the post oak burger and it was hands down the best burger I’ve ever had. It was perfectly cooked, medium, and wasn’t too heavy. I will definitely visit again.

The food was wonderful. The sommelier was so helpful. Our waiter appeared to be overwhelmed because because we waited a long time to order drinks and a long time to order food. Food was delivered in a timely manner but the interaction with the waiter was were delays took place.

Old Cafe Annie much better. New look is just copying other places of which there are too many. It’s all about the bar. I’ll not go back. Old Cafe Annies much better and was my favorite in Houston. Alas, no more. My impression is new ownership is catering to bar crowd where they can make more money.

Music in Restaurant too LOUD and still you can't name a tune but just bump bump bump. Restaurants are for eating and talking to friends and guests. Not a pick up bar.

Food and service were great. I love the atmosphere. For a business meeting, I found out that it is better to have a private dining room.

I had a 12:30 lunch reservation for 2. Unfortunately, we had to wait about 30 minutes for our table. When I make a reservation, i do not expect to wait 30 minutes. I was celebrating a friends birthday and she had time or I would have walked out. That is not acceptable.

It has been a long time since the original Cafe Annie closed and I was hoping that this version would bring back something close to the original. But it definitely did not. Food is more casual and about as expected for a generic restaurant like this, but nothing special. The real problem was the service. It was never clear who was supposed to be taking care of us, and after sitting with menus for quite a while, we had to actively ask someone to take our wine order. The exact same process repeated for our main order. Although the deliver of the food and desert was OK, the overall process was frustrating.

Someone has told the chef to tone down the spice of the food
I liked the spice and flavor of the old recipes
The jalapeño grits were great
Tostados needed the omph

We were celebrating two birthdays in our group of three women. The food is as good as it ever was and the service flawless (Arturo). While I loved the former decor in Café Annie, the new bright, light atmosphere was very pleasant. We had the best time, we all loved the food, and Arturo went above and beyond.

We decided to go there to try the rabbit. Wow! So worth the drive, it was delicious. Everything was really outstanding. We were there for a very early dinner (actually our late lunch), was e were the only table for like 30 minutes and everyone was very attentive. We will definitely go back very soon!

The food was wonderful. Restaurant was beautifully decorated. Only complaint was the noise level. For a four top, it was loud to the point that we could not hear the person that was diagonal from us. It's a new restaurant and based on how well everything went, I'm sure they will add something to help with the noise level in the near future.

i celebrated my birthday on Saturday over dinner with my wife. Everything was absolutely perfect. What helped was the personal attention from Craig who we knew as one of the managers from B&B Butcher. Our waiter was attentive and we were never pressed to order which we did once we were good and ready. For openers my wife and i had a glass of sparkling chardonnay followed by a Zinfandel that i had never tried before, so great work on the part of the Sommelier as I did not give her much to work with regarding my wine choice for dinner. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for special occasions, or any occasion, for that matter. It was good to see the clientele well turned out dress-wise and not in sloppy jeans and t-shirts. I believe that the restaurant has a dress code but i am not 100% sure. If they do i fully support this rule...……….

We had the chicken Paillard and the tuna lunch which were both delicious. As well, our server was excellent. The baguette bread was also very good and the chocolate cake desert was delicious.

I went there to meet a family member new to town. Nice evening, great time visiting and talking over drinks and dinner. Fantastic venue for reestablishing family bonds. Reconnected with my cousin and the waiter knew when to let us visit, when to refill our drinks and when to offer suggestions for dessert. Such a warm happy establishment. Thanks for a memorable night ‘

Fantastic ! Delicious ! So inviting and engaging. Staff is warm and approachable . Tasty dishes are out of this world delicious. Truly , each appetizer and entrée was a piece of art. Lovely presentation, appealing aromas and I just remembered, the savory desserts. I ordered extra desserts just to take home and enjoy later. Impressive decor w super comfy seats.

We are new to the area and I found this restaurant via google search and decided to take a chance to celebrate our anniversary! Definitely older crowd which is nice. Elegant but not stuffy. Service also took their time which I loved not feeling rushed! Overall I was very happy and would return.

Dining at their wonderful bar is the way to go If you want a very lively experience. The place is nothing like it used to be when it was Cafe Annie. We went and were able sit at the bar to watch the beginning of the astro's game and are bartenders Jose Luis and Andress were attentive and awesome. It's shout out to Cara who is the bar manager there and helped us secure good seats at the bar. The bar is huge. The food was terrific. A great menu with lots of things to choose from. Add this to your list of fun places to dine with great food. Their downstairs will be opening up soon.

BUT, the new redesign has gone from dark, soothing, great for a conversation to LOUD and bright...and hard to hear (and I'm don't have hearing problems). The clientele also seems to have shifted from the middle-aged and older Tanglewood, Memorial, River Oaks patrons to younger groups that like to have a good time...loudly.

I had to ask to have my table moved because the one next to us was painfully loud. Once we got to a better table, I saw a woman get up from her table and go ask another table to keep it down.

When I mentioned this to the maitre'd, his response was "That's how we like it...." To each his own.

Food & service was outstanding. The bar area is very loud. Dining area is a bit noisy as well but not to the extreme as the bar. We asked for a table tucked in a corner which definitely was the right choice for an intimate dinner.

Recently re-opened under new management the space has been updated. We ate on the patio and it was very pleasant. Our server was very attentive to our demands after a bit of a slow start. The menu is a mix of new items and Cafe Annie standbys. All dishes were well prepared. Portions were more than adequate. The wine list is modest but caters to a reasonable range of styles and prices consistent with the overall price of the restaurant.
