Third Coast Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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 arrived for dinner alone after a long day of meetings at the medical center. The restaurant was empty and I ordered a drink and my dinner right away. The drink came and I spent time answering emails. 25 minutes later my BLT sandwich had not arrived in spite of two visits by the waiter saying it would only be two more minutes. I got up to walk out of the restaurant as the manager was bringing me a salad (which I had not ordered) to placate me until my dinner arrived a few minutes later.
The manager's apologies were appropriate and they took the drink and food off my bill. I tipped the waiter because it wasn't his fault that the kitchen had messed up.
I feel this restaurant has enough transient business and are one of the few real restaurants in the area, thus they do not need to provide real service to gain repeat customers.
Dinner at this restaurant added significant stress to an already long day.
Outstanding restaurant in the Houston medical center area. Food was excellent and service was very good. Only challenge was finding it - it is on the top floor and you have to park in the garage to access it. Dining room was almost empty on a Saturday evening and we literally had two full time waiters taking wonderful care of us. Would highly recommend and don't be put off by the parking and access!
Visited the restaurant for Houston Restaurant Weeks. It was our first visit and I'm not that familiar with the Medical Center so was concerned parking would be a problem but it was easy. They validated the parking. Anyway, on to the food! It was delicious and perfect. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My friend and I also enjoyed our cocktails. A wonderful evening and we would love to return.
I went for a special occasion/ friend date on 08/08/17. It was during Houston Restauarant week, the the menu was fabulous. We each got a different appetizer, entree, and desert for $35. We additionally paired it with their wine selections. It was very enjoyable, affordable, and especially perfect for anyone in the med center or museum district. I will be going back!
Hostess was awesome, professional , courteous, and pleasant, my wife had a little break from MD Anderson cancer treatment and wanted something special but concerned about the dress code. We were assured of our dress upon arrival by the lovely hostess. We will be back!
This was my second visit since the re-opening and the Menu selection was still limited however better than the selection on my first visit in February. I had the BLT which was awesome I did not like the chips. the servers were friendly and the food was severed in a reasonable time.
