Great for a mid week happy hour. Weekends it is the place to "BE" before House of blues
Took my daughter here to experience downtown dining and she loved it
Great smoked brisket with baked lentils. I was Leary to try in the middle of Houston when my smoked briskets usually found in dodgy places, nice size plate and powerful smoke flavor. Great cut of meat. The lentil, i wasn’t going to eat until i thought i would try,... fantastic. I finished it all off. Nice price and very nice server. Ill be back for more.
The food was good but small portions for the price. The service was okay. We had to ask for water refill a couple of times. Could be better considering the restaurant was not too busy.
The waiter, Arthur, had great suggestions and the Burnt Ends appetizer was amazing! Definitely going back.
Decent spot for food in downtown. Very quiet on the weekends but good ambiance.
I was very disappointed about the food. I had the brisket and the next morning, I woke up with a good poisoning.
Food was ok. Not spectacular but just as expected. Had to wait a few minutes to be seated as there was no host. Other than that I would return.
The bartender was SO slow but everything was delicious
Except for the empanadas the food was great. The empanadas were so spicy hot our friend who ordered it couldn’t eat it. She likes spicy food but said they were intolerably hot. Everything else was great!
Zutros is an excellent restaurant and bar for date night. The food and ambiance was 5 star and the noise level is low so you can easily converse with others at the table. I ordered a fried oyster caesar salad.
The oysters were cooked lightly and had lots of flavor. The Zutros bar on the 23rd floor rooftop has a phenomenal view of downtown and is an excellent place to have wine or beer with friends or your spouse. It also lacks the traffic noise of street level outdoor bars. Plenty of nearby parking especially evenings. Check out both the rooftop bar and restaurant in the same evening. You'll be glad you did.
There wasn't anything wrong technically, just slightly underwhelming. We ordered the daily special lunch. I had the gumbo which was a bit salty. The cuban was good, but a little dry. Service was slow for it not being very busy. One of the servers had a very dirty vest.
We absolutely love this restaurant. Wonderful food! We also love the look of the restaurant. Modern and beautiful.
I had the special, which was catfish courtboullion, and it was outstanding! The fried quail legs were the best my husband has ever tasted. Summer squash small plate was unique and very tasty. My husband had the turtle soup, which was extraordinary. We will definitely be back.
Great Food !!
Suggestion: Have crackers or crunchy bread accompany the gumbo and wedge salad.
Loved the service and the food!
I took my husband here for his birthday. Neither of us had ever he ever been. We loved the food, the service, the ambiance and the overall experience. We can’t wait to return.
Amazing atmosphere! Had a wonderful time!
The food was amazing and staff members were really friendly! The drink I had for for my Birthday was very good!
Great! Everyone was very helpful. We had a wonderful time. We were celebrating an anniversary, they gave us a dessert and a bouquet of flowers. We will be back!
Service and food were phenomenal. A hidden gem!
The pork belly appetizer and the long chop entree were outstanding.
Great! Loved it the food was amazing the bar at the roof had such an amazing view it was outstanding
Beautifully plated and delicious from appetizers (small plates) to sides, to main courses. No room for dessert, but will definitely come back.
The service was excellent as well and on a Friday night, we got a very quiet table which was perfect for conversation and enjoying the meal.
The food was delicious
Food and service were perfect! We really enjoyed our stay at Zutros and would come back again!
Our server was exceptionally attentive.The ambiance was fantastic. The restaurant itself was completely empty and we were the only ones there however it allowed our server to give us his undivided attention. Lastly,I'd like to give out major kudos for them accommodating my vegan lifestyle. I could not order off the menu and they prepared a very delicious all vegan meal for me.
Standard hotel restaurant faire, nothing special. The drinks, however, are stellar!
Disappointed that the in-restaurant menu was missing several items that are publicized on the online menu. The food tasted decent but didn’t live up to all hype of other reviews. Restaurant was slow in the early evening but the acoustics and happy hour crowd made it extremely difficult to hear the person across the table.
My first time at this restaurant and I loved it! The food was fresh and well-seasoned.
Houston has no idea how lucky they are to have Chef Troy Deano. We in Louisiana miss him and his delicious cooking! Every dish was amazing, but ones that stood out were the pork belly, brussel sprouts, duck confit, butternut squash, shrimp and grits, and roasted chicken! Thank you for an amazing night Chef Troy and crew!
Great place to hang with friends or family. One of the managers was rude to my guest , but besides that the rooftop bar was awesome with great drinks.
Overpriced and not the great service. Took 15 minute to get coffe We wed ind if 3 tables period. Would not go back
Menu looked good but dishes were under-executed. Overall, it was unnecessarily underwhelming. We were nearly the only table in the restuarant. Every plate should have been their best work. Cute interior though.
Chef Troy Deano has done it again with Zutro! The cuisine is a flawless fusion of wonderful meats, seafood and unique vegetable accompaniments that makes you feel as if each dish, is being invented and prepared for you right then... Superb wine selection, too. Located in the LeMeridien Hotel in downtown Houston, the rooftop bar is worth a visit, too.
What a terrific find! Wanted to try something new for our pre-theatre dinner and was not disappointed! We started with the Pork Belly Burnt Ends and OMG. I think every restaurant should start serving Pork Belly Burnt Ends! That dish was phenomenal... sweet and succulent and perfectly fatty yet crisp with flavorful burnt edges. Together with the pickled vegetables, wrapped in fresh butter lettuce, each bite was a perfect one!
The brisket was also delicious, and the burger was wonderful, as well. The Malbec was decent and paired nicely with the smokiness of our dishes. We didn't have time for dessert, but we both agreed we would return!
We thought it was nice, great server, but pricey for what it was. But location was great, going to Hobby Center, valet was easy and efficient. Would go again, but not for everyday dining, too expensive.
We shared crab appetizer, wedge salad and roasted chicken. Cheesecake for dessert. Everything was unique, delicious, and beautifully presented. Perfect cocktails and wine too! Hospitality and service spot on.
The food was delicious, etc. Service was slow. Should not have been because it was not crowded. Less than 20 people at lunch time.
Great spot! Apps, entrees, and cocktails were all amazing. Our server was on top of it the entire time and offered us a free chocolate and caramel bread pudding, which is highly recommended.
Amazing food and great service. Convenient to the theater friendly staff with great ambiance.
Food was great, but portions are very small. Shrimp and grits would have been great with a steak to not leave hungry. After dinner we went to Walgreens to pick up $70 in snacks for the four of us. Definitely recommend ordering a multi-course meal if you eat here If you don’t want to leave hungry.
