Upon arriving the computer was down so it took a while to be seated, it was my wife's birthday so I had requested seating in special area. That didn't happen. Once seated me and my wife went to serve ourselves we came to our table which had used drinks and utensils on our table. before we sat down some had to come clean the table again.

Our waiter was awesome and the food was good. Not sure I would come back for a special occasion again.

the food being served to the patrons was horrific! You have the highest based clientele coming
to your eatery, paying big money and the food, by everyones comments was abysmal. With Landry's now involved we expect improvements ---period.
My wife liked the cheese!!

The quality of the food has not been as good as previous years-surprising since Landry’s has taken over food service. Hopefully it will improve since we love eating here before the rockets games.

It was my wife and I 1st time to the Bistro and it was more than we expected! Great seats and food! We had never been there before and our server, Nicole, was very helpful and was around when we needed her. With the game going on, you would think it would be super loud however it was not. We are already planning our next date night when the Spurs come to town!

Prior to tonight, I had not eaten at the restaurant in about 3-4 years. In the past, I ate there as part of my birthday celebration before watching my favorite team compete. Tonight, I ate there to celebrate my wedding anniversary before the game. I was hoping to enjoy more fresh seafood entrees like in the past, but that was not the case. We thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp & grits dish but felt the gumbo tasted like it was poured from a can. The other seafood dish was cooked in a sauce that made it taste & look like a store bought frozen seafood dinner. We enjoyed the poultry dishes, grilled veggies and rice dishes. Neither of us eat the other meats on the menu that night but they looked delicious. We enjoyed the dessert and fruit variety and my husband really enjoyed the anniversary gift pictured below. The service was great and the staff are friendly. I would have given this dining experience 5 stars if all 3 seafood entrees tasted better or more fresh seafood entrees were offered.

Levy's needs to up the service ante at this great pre-game venue. Eddie Romero (sp?) chef does an amazing job creating delicious and very healthy salads and entres, but service is lacking at peak times due to lack of personnel. very slow to bring beverages wine and the check....in a buffet atmosphere, this should not happen. Need more servers at game time. Or additional personnel to provide beverage service at peak times.

I wish they would have a No Saggy Pants signage around the Buffet Tables. This would really make it more palatable when getting your food. Or this should be common knowledge when eating in a Resturant not wanting to see someone else's underwear. I would think this is a health violation, and would appreciate staff to do their part and cleaning this up.

The food is always interesting and will meet the expectations given the price & location. The service, however, consistently seems to fail to anticipate the need to get bills out to tables in advance of the rush to seats when game time comes. Twice in a row, I have been late to tipoff because of an extraordinarily long wait for a bill to be delivered and a credit card to be run. I sent the rest of my party ahead, so the pain was minimized, but I would think the whole staff should be instructed to ask if tables are ready to pay 15-20 minutes before game start.

This is the 3rd time I have reserved a table for a Rockets game ad every experience has been terrific. I love the fact that at each game there were different menus. I don't know if things were added each time, but it seems like there were new things like the Mable Slab, that I didn't see the last time. Excellent Food, Excellent Service, Great Environment!!!!!

This is the perfect place to eat before a Houston Rockets game. You can watch players warming up and eat a healthy meal. Since food is served buffet style, the amount of time needed for dining is completely flexible. The Chef provides a variety of dining options every game!!! The wait staff is phenomenal as they are willing to pour your drink in a cup that can be taken to your seat as you watch the game. Perfect place for people watching!!!

I think it is one of the best buffets in Houston. Selection is good. You will always get a choice of several different and excellent salads and fruits, at least one fish dish,along with some type of pasta, beef, pork, and poultry dish, some sort of appetizer, and a large dessert bar. Quality is typically excellent, along with unique twists on the standard fare mentioned above. Service can be a bit uneven, and it is hard to get into the restaurant due to occasional problems with the reservation list, and a Security staff not always accommodating. Great place to go eat when you are interested in more than a burger, dog, and nachos.
