Waiter basically absent after he took our order. Salmon was raw in the center, was ordered at medium. Chicken and donuts - chicken was not even as good as I could get at a fast food restaurant. When we mentioned to the waiter that we didn’t care for the chicken (one of the few times he graced our presence) he just rolled his eyes and walked away. Didn’t expect a comp or anything like that, but not even an acknowledgement or ask if we would like to order something different.

Great meal but service was poor given they aim at a more fine dining experience in the evenings. I would still go back but maybe not with a group.

I received a call the day before to confirm my request for a birthday dessert to celebrate my friend’s birthday. This didn’t seem to be communicated to the wait staff, because I had to request it when they didn’t bring anything. The food was all right and the wait staff was friendly and attentive though.

Thank you Weights + Measures staff for accommodating all of my guests during my birthday celebration. Additionally, the waitress assisting our table was thoughtful and gifted me a freshly baked pastry. The food was tasty and filling and the atmosphere was soothing and welcoming.

From the moment we sat down till the check came it was heaven. Starting with drinks we ordered the meat plate - we are fans of charcuterie- and we paired it with the hummus. The drinks came- clean green? I think that’s the name - was a good choice - and shortly after we had beautiful appetizers in front of us. The hummus was topped with roasted mushrooms that could have been their own entree - the pita was nice and crisp. The bread was lightly toasted with several options to top including house-made pickled veg. Afterward we ordered dinner - the duck was divine. The gnocchiette was served with house sausage with a sage butter sauce. melted in my mouth. Tandoori chicken was tender and the polenta it was served with equally amazing. The pizza is always good. For dessert it was coffee, carrot cake and flourless chocolate cake with a chocolate ancho Chile gelato.... to. Die. For.
The atmosphere is fun, trendy, clean. The chairs are comfy and the tables spacious enough to seat anyone without feeling cramped. It was a lovely evening to be remembered. Thank you!

Weights and Measures is one of our absolute favorites in Houston. Our dining experience last night for my wife’s birthday was phenomenal! We sat at the counter and got to overlook the kitchen. It’s so fun to watch all the amazing dishes being prepared. Every dish was executed perfectly and the chef went out of his way to make our night so memorable. Thank you so much to the entire amazing team for making my wife’s birthday so special. We can’t wait to come back again soon!

Our first time there for dinner, but had eaten brunch there often in the past. Couldn't have been treated better by Angela, their new GM and Tariq, our waiter. They gave great recommendations on both food, wine and the pairings. Good job on the fish, but especially on their hand made pastas. Really nice value. Highly recommended.

Charged 2.50 for a kids cup of milk. GTFOH.

Asked to switch cocktail liquor from vodka to gin. Sure. No problem. No mention that it would be an extra $5. For what? Using a different liquor!

Carrot cake cold and dry.

Avocado salad and carrot pizza where good though

We had dinner. The service was prompt and the waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was good, not great. When it got to the table it was warm, not hot. The chicken (2 of us ordered the Airline chicken) was moist which was great. The flavors were a little bland. The sweet potato mash was creamy and good. Nice texture. The other vegetable (broccolini, I think) was over cooked and soaked in butter sauce. It would have been nice to have the vegetable crisp and hot to add texture. The carrot cake was more on the dry side. So we probably wouldn’t have dinner here again, but we may try brunch.

I went with a friend for Saturday brunch. My friend had avocado toast and I had the American breakfast. Both were delicious! The service was very attentive and friendly. Even the seating hostess could not have been friendlier. We did not have alcohol but saw a number of tables with tempting hand-crafted breakfast beverages. The best part of the meal was watching the two pastry chefs preparing breads, torts, cinnamon rolls, and even pretzels. They were amazing! The only opportunity I saw for improvement was the brewed coffee, which was served from a carafe and was lukewarm and very weak. When I go back, guess I will need to order a cappuccino.

I have been many times but this was the first time with my husband. Unfortunately it was a very off day. Service was not up to usual standards. Food took forever to come out. While good food, chips were bad and sandwiches that are normally full of meat, were lacking the normal quantity level. I don’t think I will get my husband back agin. He was not impressed and if this had been my first time, I would not return. I will try again as I am hoping this is a one off

This was my first time here for lunch. Food and service was great as expected. I brought my work colleagues and it was their first time here. They left happy and loved the food. Everyone found at least 2 or 3 menu items that they wanted. The atmosphere was lively but we were able to enjoy the conversation. I appreciated the attentive but unobtrusive service which made a good impression.

Celebrated a wonderful birthday lunch with girlfriendsz. The smell of freshly baked goods permeates the room when you arrive! Salad are delicious but the star of the show was the carrot pizza. Amazing! A little sweet and a little spicy. Definitely a do over!

I really wanted to like this place. Trust me I did! If only I were going with the intent to just SIT in a cute place.. BUT I WASNT! I was going to eat good food! You are easily misled because the entrance into the restaurant is open to their bakery and who doesn’t love the smell of fresh croissants. It was a follow your nose moment and we were excited for our brunch experience. Our waitress wanted to be attentive, she really did... at least I’d like to believe that. We asked for hot chocolate 3 times before they arrived and since it was quite a wait on the food, I hoped she’d make sure we were too full on drinks to notice that our underwhelming dishes had not been served. Our party ordered the chilaquiles, Americano, Baked Bruoche French toast, and an a la carte of eggs, breakfast sausage & toast. I should be close to impossible to mess up brunch but I guess they’re we’re aiming to prove me wrong! They gave us an extra side of bland, bland and BLAND. How can short rib ever leave your tastebuds wondering what am I eating?! The only thing we halfway enjoyed was the French toast and we were nibbling the spare scraps off my girlfriends plate because again syrup and toasted bread is hard not to enjoy. We needed the salt brought to our table to bring some flavor to our food.. your selection of spinach or potatoes would be great if they weren’t thawed from the nearest grocery freezer and warmed to serve on our plate. What happened to fresh cut potatoes?! I won’t ever go back! If you can mess up breakfast I definitely don’t want to see how bad you mess up dinner. Our whole party was disappointed. But if you’re going for cute and quaint this place may be for you. If you’re looking for good food. Keep your petal on the gas and don’t even think about stopping... keep driving as far from here as possible... :-(

We went to brunch here and had heard good things and wanted to try something new and thought this would be a great place. I would not recommend it to anyone after going. Two of the three people got sick and the food was very sub par. The service was alright but everything else was very bad.

Waiter mentioned early on that an item on the HRW menu was sold out. It happened to be the item that was the main factor in choosing this property for dinner. I tried to be a good sport but did let him know it was the reason we chose to dine here. Made a second choice and moved on. The courses were brought out accordingly and a special delivery was made of the item supposedly sold out. It was tasty and appreciated; however, not really sold out since it appeared o our table? So... does this mean that was a trick to get a better tip? Not sure how to feel. No additional charge for the item but if it was available then why tell me it was sold out?
Otherwise, we loved this meal and place. Haven’t been here in a while and it was just as wonderful as always. Great food, drinks and service overall, and this spot remains on our list of preferred restaurants.
