My wife and I went for Valentines day. Philip, the GM, was attentive and gracious. The service was top notch.

Service is very slow. I went for happy hour and nobody cared about me for 20 min, then I dared asking for the menu and it took another 30 min until I got my drink. Don’t go there if you are in a hurry!

This is the best real restaurant in the medical center area that I have found in my two recent trips to Houston for MD Anderson activities. Lots of fast food around but this was the only place in walking distance I found in my two visits.

Lovely restaurant. An oasis in the crowded, busy Texas Medical Center. You can’t see it from street. It is on 6th floor with nice views. We had dinner there and liked it so much that we went there for a late breakfast after appointments. Next to MDAnderson and very easy walk from other facilities and hotels. Highly recommend.

First time. James and the crew took good care of us, it was a quiet evening though, and we liked being able to carry on a conversation. Our group each ordered fish entrees and all were very good. We'll be back.

I had the Cobb salad at lunch with chicken. The chicken was fatty and the salad had very little flavor. I was surprised at the poor quality considering the ambiance and location would indicate it is a high-end restaurant. The price was high for the quality and the portions are small.

My husband and I loved dining at a Third Coast. The setting is beautiful, our waiter was knowledgeable about the food and wine. The service was perfect. Everything we had was delicious and well-presented. We'll be back.

Took my parents to Third Coast when Dad was in for tests. All of our food was great. Crab appetizer and tortilla soup were wonderful as were hamburgers, salmon special and roasted chicken. Would definitely go back. Oh yeah. Service was excellent and great view.

I had the special of pan seared salmon with butternut squash risotto and broccolini, and it was absolutely delicious. It is not very budget-friendly but is well worth the splurge on occasion.

Food was sub par . Not up to snuff . Eaten at better places which were cheaper that Third Cost . Sorry to say ... don’t wast your time and money here . Maybe just good for coffee only sadly .
