Warehouse 72 marries industrial aesthetics, commissioned artwork and outstanding hospitality with a contemporary American menu inspired by Mediterranean flavors.

Diners may choose from a selection of starters, including seafood offerings such as PEI Mussels and Mediterranean Grilled Octopus. Salazar and his team are making mozzarella in-house, which is being showcased in starters such as the flash-fried mozzarella and bruschetta. The house-made mozzarella is also used on a variety of handcrafted pizzas featuring tender crusts made with finely textured 00 flour from Italy.

Warehouse 72’s signature dish is Angel Hair Pasta with truffle cream sauce, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, grated fresh black truffles, chives and a touch of truffle oil. There are plenty of hearty main courses to choose from as well, such as Australian Lamb Chop “lollipops” and a hefty 18-ounce, Bone-in Ribeye.

Great ambiance and beautiful decor. But the restaurants got very loud as it got busier. The food was good/ok, but not great - which is why I think it’s overpriced. The chocolate mousse was the best thing I had.

Everything was wonderful, food and drinks were well prepared. The only small critique I can offer is that the bar tv was on the Hunting channel. Maybe not the most appetizing ambiance to watch bloody animals while enjoying a great meal.

The food was okay. The server was really nice and the chef was accommodating to our food (we wanted the ribeye steak but it was sold out so chef replaced it with a strip steak instead for the same price). The lights turned off multiple times during dinner which was odd.

Food was so-so. Modern Italian for a reasonable price. The service was chaotic, negligent when it came to the order and overly attentive when it came to rating the place. But what pushed it over the edge was the price for an espresso ($6.95) after dinner. The argument given was that the machine that makes it was very expensive. Oh well, let's all share the burden then. In the end all drinks were overpriced (wine by the glass between $16 and $21, beer $8 and then the espresso.....), which probably compensates for the reasonably priced food.

The restaurant was beautiful, and the food was amazing. We had the octopus as an appetizer, and it was delicious. I will definitely get that next time. Two of us had the scallops with asparagus, and it was to die for. One person got the halibut, and he enjoyed it. They also had a live duo playing jazz music which was nice. I will definitely be going back soon.

We tried this place during Houston Restaurant Weeks and it was delicious! Fried Mozzarella appetizer was sooo good. Short Rib Ragu Pappardelle pasta was delish and chocolate mouse was to die for! We also tried one of the house drinks, Black Lipstick...a MUST try! Service was great and we loved the ambiance. Restaurant is located at the Edwards Marquee for movies a lot and we will definitely be doing dinner and movie here more after. Saw lots of other tasty items on menu that we wanna try!

Went here for Houston Restaurant Week and it went very well. All the food was great and the managers were walking around making sure everything was great. My broccoli was cold when I started eating it, broccoli loses hear pretty quick so probably my fault for waiting, and they replaced it quick. The chocolate mousse was amazing. Like I'm going back for it soon lol

Spaghetti and meatballs was kind of bland (not to spaghetti warehouse standards when compared). My wife had a fish dish (can't remember which one), but it was very bland. I know you just opened, but for the prices I really expected better. I might return in a few months and try you out again.

My family and I had an early dinner at Warehouse 72 tonight. We live in Spring Branch and often complain about the lack of choices here. We were excited to try out Warehouse 72. We arrived a little before our 6:00pm reservation and had to wait for a table as the waitstaff were in meeting. We were then seated near the live music, which I knew was going to be a problem for my 6 year old. We quickly moved tables, and the staff was quite accommodating. I thought it was a little odd that the hostess didn't ask us it the table was okay and she didn't offer us kids menus despite the two kids with us. I thought maybe they did have a kids menu, but they in fact have a three course kids menu which my younger child loved. My husband, older child, and I all ordered of the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu in order to get a sampling of the menu. The winners included the Arancini, the beet salad, the wedding soup, the pork chop, and the salted caramel gelato. My husband and I both got the Seafood Risotto, and the scallops and rice were excellent, but the shrimp were a bit over cooked. I had the fried mozzarella and it was good, but not great. The space and decor are both lovely; the murals are worth seeing. There is also a private party room which is nice as there are not a lot of private restaurant spaces for groups to meet. Overall, it was a pleasant meal. I would for sure come back for a date night with my husband, but I am not sure it will fit into our family friendly Friday night dinners out.

We saw this new red in HRW listing, it had mixed reviews due to service, but we wanted to try anyway. Food was good overall with some negatives. my wife and I had the HRW menu. She chose the beet cappacio, I had wedding soup. Beet was not a lot, but tasty. Soup was a bit too salty, but meatball was good flavor. Best course was the pork chop we both had. The panda cotta dessert was too dense but was ok.Our waitress was good, so no complaints on service.

It is not the Old Spaghetti Warehouse. The new Warehouse 72 is more modern, the menu is significantly different. Congratulations on the new opening. The food was excellent, the wait staff was very attentive. We enjoyed supporting Houston Restaurant efforts. Cannot wait to go back.

Restaurant looks great and has a great atmosphere. We shared a pizza to begin. Not my favorite but I think everyone has their own likes and dislikes in that regard. It had a thin crispy crust (a few black spots but I guess that is normal in a pizza oven?) but also didn’t have very much sauce or cheese. The pasta dish we shared was excellent and I would order that again. It was fettuccine with burrata and basil pesto.

Miss the original menu it’s just not the same, and it was too over priced for the amount of food I got.. and the server was too attentive it was annoying every two-five minutes she would visit our table to ask is everything is okay, how is everything????

Took advantage of Houston Restaurant Week for a Saturday lunch. Fried mozzarella was phenomenal. Steak sandwich was better than I expected. The ravioli was not a lot of food, but I did not expect a lot but something to be ordered for the great taste and not to fill you up. We also had the Margarita pizza and it compared well to favorites from Italy. Parking was easy and they also have valet. The space looks as good as the pictures you see online. This is a new restaurant so did not expect service to be perfect. It was not, but they are trying and nothing happened to take away from the wonderful meal.

First, my daughter arrived a few minutes before the the rest of us and even with reservations, they would not seat her at the table. She went to the bar to get a drink, which was not made well. She thought the bartender looked up the recipe. It was a French 75 but tasted like gin and lime juice. we asked the water for a little more champagne which he got and that helped. The meal came quickly and was hot. The flavor was good by our spaghetti sauce was spicy. We ordered dessert - scores. I thought the portion was small and the crust needed to be thicker to taste the graham crackers. Other thought the ice cream texture was odd. Hoping they bring lasagna back! Will try again - realize they have only been open a week!

Great food and service (although I would have the wait staff be a little less interruptive, in terms of the amount of times they asked how our food was, but I understand the frequency, given that the restaurant just opened). Food was really high-quality and great, with a wide variety of dishes. Music could be turned down a bit. Will be back

Food and decoration was very good. We sat in rear of restaurant, a separate room. 3 rows of tables, we sat in middle row which had only 2 tops. Too many tables so when people was walking to back row by wall, we got constantly bumped. Need to remove one table and make a path to the tables by the wall
Also, valet blocked way to many spots, spots by feeder road empty when we arrived and still empty when we left. I hate valet, and Thought this place would not have. Didn’t use it, had to park far away.

A little loud, but we were able to sit in back enclosed room and that helped.

This place is brand new but they've already worked out most of the kinks that come with a new opening. Service is very friendly and attentive. Nice touch that the manager visited our table and addressed us by name. Lots of good choices on both the HRW and regular menus. Wine list needs some work. Very limited "intermediate" choices. Two or three bottles in each category in the $50 range, then everything else was $100+. Good atmosphere and moderate noise level. We enjoyed our meal, and will keep it on the list for a future visit.

Total experience was fair not fantastic. Needs improvement in terms of service. I understand that they just open. Managements should make the first impression of customers last. Giving excellent dining experience that will make them come back. Not a trial and error thing. I made a reservation for my birthday and I’m unhappy with the seating location that I got. The restaurant was not full. They should have given us at least a booth. My soup was salty but the manager was good enough to replace it. I appreciate it. Staff will ask you too many times and almost a bother while you eat. The place is nice hope management will give a better dining experience. Well anyway this might be the first and last visit.

We went last minute because it is close to home and was new. We ordered off restaurant week menu. Hopefully it is because of first week “jitters” but my Italian Wedding Soup was so salty that my immediate thought was throw a couple potatoes in the pot to absorb the excess salt. I think it may have been delicious if not for that. The vegetables were not mushy and the meatballs of good quality. I ordered the bison Bolognese. The papardelle pasta was over cooked. The sauce again had too much salt ( I do use salt in my cooking). My dessert of salted caramel gelato was delicious. The paintings on the wall are great conversation starters and interesting. The noise is overwhelming. If more than two are at your table, the conversation will have to be shouted.

Get to Warehouse 72 before it gets "discovered." The food was amazing and the waitstaff was as informed and cordial as any I have experienced in Houston. Nothing was as expected. I did not expect them to make their own Mozzarella in house. I tried the fried Mozzarella appetizer just because - and found it is nothing ordinary. The frozen S'mores desert is like frozen, toasted mousse. And everything in between was exceptional.

Recommend you have the original menu from Spaghetti Warehouse. Drove all the way in from Deer Park to have the classic lasagna and it was not on the menu. Truly disappointed in this. My taste buds were set for this but rather had a high bill for food I had not really intended on having. Atmosphere and staff were really friendly and helpful. But I don’t believe we will be returning.

We had a nice meal. Servers were a little “off.” They took plates away too quickly. Tried to take a paper napkin from under a glass but then backed off. Just strange. Brought an alternate dessert from one we ordered without asking and charged for it as well. Still strange. Did not process our payment correctly so I ended up paying for the whole meal and taking cash from my friend instead of simply paying the difference. Again- pretty strange. Lamb chops and oysters were awesome. Tuna tartare was just okay.

Know it had just been open a few days..., went for HRW.
Beet salad was a treat.
Fried Mozzarella was flavorful.
Short rib ragu was tasty.
The risotto was amazing ( but they did not have shrimp for the seafood part).. the scallops were cooked crispy. (They added a bland fish & clams as a substitute)
we upgraded to the rib eye. No flavor... but fries were nice.
The kitchen was slow. Got 3 salads & 10 min later the 4th came. Lots of staff walking around - but not very attentive. But they are nice & polite... just new. We asked for water a few times. All that can be improved with practice.

Might try it again in a few months before or after a movie.

Loved our first visit to Warehouse 72. The staff really seem to care about our dining experience and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the Za’atar roasted chicken, Fettuccine Barata and the Warehouse 72 salad. It was a Saturday evening and the live music was a great addition. We could even keep up with the Astros by peeking at the TVs in the bar. We will definitely be returning soon!

Music was a bit loud but not so much so you couldn’t hear the person you’re talking to. Trent atmosphere but cool. Service was excellent. Food took awhile to come out but not too long. My wife had a chicken dish she said tasted good but could have used a sauce as it was a bit dry. My short rib risotto was delicious but just a tad bit salty and would have liked to have seen more meat but still good
