The dining room is awash in hues of warm browns and cool grays with modern lighting, comfortable seating and that include two private dining areas and an impressive wine display. The magnificent panoramic views of the Texas Medical Center skyline, accentuated by the current floor-to-ceiling windows in space, will now be visible not only from the dining tables but from our new, open bar design.

The ‘Modern Houstonian’ menu, under the direction of award-winning executive chef Jon Buchanan, draws on the diverse flavors of Houston’s culinary melting pot. The menu offers a wide variety of premium seafood and meat entrees, as well as flavorful vegetarian options, all sourced from a variety of esteemed, local vendors.

It was a poor experience. They had as many chairs as possible packed in. Nothing like the photos online. The food was expensive, but poor in quality. Our dishes were dirty. It was a dismal experience.

They didn’t tell us that there was a Valentines Day only menu so we couldn’t order what we wanted. We got seated and it took 15 minutes for waitstaff to acknowledge us.

Other diners were too casual. Ambience was not great - in an office building setting. Food and service was terrific.

Havent been to a restaurant that performed this well on all points in a long time, on top of not being excessively expensive. The food was excellent, a wide variety of options including some delicious plant-based ones. The service all the way around could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. We loved it so much we went back again the next night! If I lived in Houston it would definitely be on my shortlist.

Consistently good food in a very cool modern space in the Texas Medical Center. Seafood seems to be their best performance. Nice specials every day and good standbys. Great spot if you are at one the hospitals in the Med Ctr area.

We went on a "girls night out" to celebrate a birthday so were a party of 7. It was a very enjoyable evening, from the service to the food delivery, etc. The presentation of the food was excellent, kudos to the Chef and team -- it was truly "picture" worthy. The ambiance was excellent as they had the restaurant divided out into a private room, bar area, TV area, quiet area for business meetings, so whatever the occasion, you will feel comfortable. We will definitely go there again -- I highly recommend.

Awful service in the bar area for happy hour. Their signature drink is just a large glass of pink lemonade with no discernible vodka. Bar bites were small and expensive. I have been there for lunch which was better

We went for an early dinner. Service was AMAZING! Our server was son attentive and had great recommendations... definitely went the extra mile. Also all the staff was so nice with our baby which was a bonus :). We ordered the crab cakes and ceviche for appetizers and both where delicious. For the entree we ordered the chicken with mushroom risotto and the snapper also amazing! The risotto is one of the best Ive ever had! Dessert we tried the chocolate cake... not my favorite but still had a nice flavor. Definitely recommend and will return!

Third Coast has a very strange approach through a food court with a Chik-fil-a, but once you arrive on the right floor, it is an oasis in the midst of a medical district. The tables are nicely spaced, the service thoughtful, and the food was excellent. It was great for a business meal where we could talk easily and were not rushed.

We happen to be next-door at MD Anderson and needed a place to get away to and have a nice lunch. This restaurant proved to be The perfect place! Wonderful service and great food. Really enjoyed the beet hummus that was placed underneath the falafel! In a beautiful setting for the restaurant… You do not feel like you are in the middle of all of the hustle and bustle of the area.
