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.

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.

Lunch just as it opened. Very well appointed dining areas. Food was excellent and artistically presented. Careful attention to details were very obvious both in preparation and design. Crab cake starter superb. Both entrees perfect. The Bourbon Tart dessert was unbelievably good. You have to park in underground garage and go to 6th floor of building but they comp parking for you. The chef has/her act very together. We will return on next Houston visit.

Great experience for those wanting to splurge every now-and-then. Yes, it’s a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. The food was amazing, service was impeccable, and the venue was immaculate. There does seem to be a business casual dress code, but I don’t think they will turn you away as long as you’re not distracting. I saw a guy in a Cardinals T-shirt at the table next to us.
Noise level was a bit high but any place that welcomes families/children can be like that. And truthfully, the staff did a great job at positioning potentially loud parties away from couples looking for a more intimate experience.

Visited for Valentine's Day, so our expectations were a little lower than perhaps they might be on a normal night. Third Coast exceeded our expectations! Parking was easy and free, dining room is attractive, and the food and service were excellent. The prix fixe menu was large and everything we tried was delicious, well portioned, and attractive. Crab cakes were actually made of crab and not a lot of stuffing, steak was huge and delicious, salmon was well portioned and prepared perfectly. Desserts were creative, fresh, and delicious. The service was professional without being overly friendly. Will definitely be back.

I took my friend out for dinner on a Sunday evening to thank her for hosting me for the previous ten days. Third Coast sounded good and the location worked well for us. Upon arrival we were surprised to find a very large private event in the main dining area. We were offered seats in an adjacent area of the main dining room where there were a handful of other diners. We were oddly offered two seats at the end of a table for eight or ten people, and when I asked for a different table, we were shown to a four top table that was jammed up against a column. It was very awkward. Our salads and entrees were well-presented and quite tasty, and I thought the food and wine were both a good value for the quality. Within a short amount of time, however, toasting and speeches started at the private event and were accompanied by cheering that was absolutely deafening, making conversation impossible. The manager came over to apologize, which we appreciated, but that didn't save our evening. To top things off, their credit card machine was not working, making it necessary to leave written credit card information to be run through at a later time. I am not rating Third Coast as low as I might because the food was so good, but I doubt I would try it again when there are so many other wonderful restaurants in Houston that have their acts together much better.

The food is great but too pricy for lunch for people working in the medical center. There should be some inexpensive options like a good pasta menu.

I went with my husband on Saturday and we were very impressed because the place was empty. The food and attention are excellent, and the place is beautiful. After a while some very elegant people arrived, and the waiter told us that people arrived later but that they were usually full all week with business meetings.

We enjoyed a very nice meal at Third Coast. The prices were quite reasonable for most items and we enjoyed their ribeye, lamb chops and mahi-mahi. It was a quiet weekday night, but the restaurant was lovely.

The special room was gorgeous as is the whole newly remodeled Restuarant! As soon as I got there the nite manager Jeronimo??? He was so nice and informative and he gave me a tour of the other special rooms of his restaurant. Next he introduced me to our waiter; Arturo, who asked me many questions about the check and the cake and our decorations that we brought! The room ambiance was so nice with our candle centerpiece as well as with the gorgeous cake we purchased! So pretty and delish. Arturo was a wonderful and thoughtful waiter and made our special gust of honor feel so good. We will def go back especially for drinks out on the balcony!
