    Food was very tasty but the decor/ambiance and service felt like we were eating lunch in a repurposed boardroom with catering staff.

    This is great place to go for views of the city, however, don't go on a rainy day. It was rainy and foggy when we went so that put a "damper" on our view. It was my sister's birthday and I wanted to take her someplace special. Like with white tablecloths, etc. It wasn't that "fancy" (felt more like a cafeteria). But it was a nice lunch nevertheless and our waitress was wonderful. Wish I remembered her name. The food was very good. We had the broccolini and risotto with shrimp. The carrot cake we had for dessert was outstanding.

    I went for lunch and everything had such good flavor. Oftentimes when you get such a nice vibe, ambiance and view, it comes at the expense of flavor. That’s not the case here. There was only one server working the main dining area and no bartender, so we were not able to try out the cocktails, but the descriptions sound delicious lol. I had to go back to work so I kept it light with the shrimp and Brussel sprouts and my friend had the fish. Omgeee I did a little shimmy bc the flavor was delish lol. I will be back.

    Good choice in Downtown Houston; an opportunity to move out of the tunnels and into a 43rd floor, with lots of lights and a good view of the city. food is good and the service is fast...

    We had a lunch party of 3, which we ordered Seafood Paella, HTX Burger, and Strato Burger. The food arrived very fresh, smelled amazing, wonderful presentation and full of flavor goodness! Service was top notch and view is amazing. We were very happy with our lunch and will be returning soon.

    Arrived at noon on a Monday for lunch with my wife. We were the only diners there, likely because this resteraunt is located downtown at the top of Wedge Tower, obviously geared toward the business crowd. There aren’t many of those in the area during the COVID work from home era. Food and service were great, views over downtown and beyond are spectacular. This used to be the 43rd at Wedge and reopened as Strato 550. It is an undiscovered gem downtown.

    What a fun little hidden gem! I hope things pick up more quickly for them! The staff was small and very attentive! The food was not only photograph-worthy, but every bite was heaven! Everything complimented each other from the salsa with the scallops and the seasoning on the potatoes (not fingerling like it states on the menu, but I couldn't care less). Once the meal was done and the views from inside soaked in, you can excuse yourself out to the observation area. You basically walk out onto the ROOF of The Wedge International Tower! What. A. View! Scary, intense, but exhilarating to see so much of this amazing city! I WILL BE BACK SOON--for the STAFF, the FOOD, and the VIEW!

    We were there on a foggy day. We were not able to assess the sun exposure; important since it only serves lunch. It is a lovely place, with a lovely view of downtown. The menu is a bit limited, but well prepared and served. Too bad it isn't open for dinner. The view must be great.

    Nice remodel but the service was only ok. Food was horrible. Quality poor. Portions poor and for the price. To claim the 2 finger cut of salmon was sushi grade.....nice try to tell us that but serving sub par pice of fish I could have purchased at sams club. The food was cold as well.
