Innovative food. Good atmosphere. Not crazy loud. And a lot of options for seating...the bar height, the regular tables, the couch seating if just getting a drink. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. All I can think of is that the menu could include a simple potato or pasta dish or two, just because so many people want that. I know it isn't as innovative as the other dishes, but you need to balance the creative dishes with some basic ones.

Sat out on patio which was nice. Food terrific. Waiter did not turn in one order we think. Husband had to wait 10 min for his but we were not in a hurry. Our waiter was very nice. We did say we wanted whiskey cake when we ordered but he either . We had to wait another 15 min for that after telling him again but we were not in a hurry.

We got there at 12 and there wasn't very many people, however there was six of us and it took over 30 minutes to get our food and we were on our lunch hour. One of the employees had to leave to get back to the office and take it to go because it was 40 minutes for his meal.

The restaurant is nice but they are not being considerate of the pandemic we are in. They had a hostess who sat a part IMMEDIATELY behind me at a booth. We were probably 6 inches from each other - without masks because we were eating. I didn’t notice initially but spoke with the manager who apologized and later addressed it with the hostess. She asked if WE, the party that was sitting there first, wanted to move to a different table. I addressed things with her but she really should not have asked if WE wanted to move. The other party should have been asked to move. I don’t stand that close to my friends with our masks off. I told the waiter that if I contract COVID Im coming back and knocking all those whiskey bottles off those shelves. Seating parties that close disregards everyone’s health. Not going here again.

Our server (Tania/Tanya) was excellent and my food/beverages were good, but the hostesses, management, and kitchen to table service for the entire party was a bit disappointing. I actually felt bad for suggesting this place because the rest of mt party had never been. I'm hoping it eas just a fluke for this location, but I think I'll stick to the one in Katy.

Impressed with online reservations, atmosphere and scan code menu. No 6' spacing and to move to another table involved a 20 minute wait even though there were many empty tables. Thank goodness for awesome wait staff.

The food however was absolutely horrible! We ordered the salmon appetizer w/chips. Both were extremely salty. Mac n cheese was watery and worse than boxed mac n cheese. Pork and brisket main dishes were both tasteless. Pork was rubbery with a strange texture. In an attempt to be upscale the pork dish was decorated with the strangest add ons but the flavors did not work well together.

The total cost of our dinner was ridiculously high for such small portions and tasteless and over salted food. It was by far the worst meal we've ever had. How this restaurant stays in business is beyond us.

We never, ever write reviews but feel obligated to inform others of what to expect when dining here.

We were afraid to try the whiskey cake since every thing prior had been so bad. Instead we decided to purchase desert at HEB.

The food is great as usual! Its a little disappointing when items that you get accustomed to are taken away. The mango habanero margarita and the onion did are signatures that should never be removed.

We used this restaurant for a business meeting recently and the experience was great! We booked a reservation in advance, but were not able to really define our needs prior to arriving. The morning of the reservation the restaurant staff called to confirm and we were able to explain our needs. The team and manager were so very accommodating and we had a great time.
