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.

Fabulous meal with service to equal. We have eaten there several times and it never disappoints. I usually have the steak which is cooked perfectly and very tender. This time I opted for the salmon special and was extremely happy with my choice.

Appetizers and food took a very long time to arrive . Some of the entrees were cold. Overall quality is reasonable but the prices are ridiculous. Essentially, this place exists because there are no other dining options within the med center.

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.
