The view, not the food, is what you go for. Service was quite good, food was just okay.

We visited for my husbands birthday. The menu was limited which is okay! But the food was not as good as the price tag attached to it. The food presentation was great but the taste was below par. The Spindletop was something we wanted to try and can say we have now, but not a place I would recommend to others. If the food matched the price tag - I would rave about this place.

Fifth time at Spindletop. The first meal was really amazing a few years ago. The second was good. Since then every successive meal has been a step down to a point where I can’t justify the price versus a Landry’s Or Babin’s where the food is at least the equal but at a discounted price. Yes - the novelty of a spinning restaurant 31 stories in the air is worth something. But you could get that ambiance with a drink and then head elsewhere for something better. It is too easy to drop $200 for two people and that is just too much.

It's been along time since I have visited a high end restaurant but took this business trip to visit Spindletop. I'm sorry to say that the menu items are overpriced even for this location and view. That may explain the nearly empty restaurant on a Friday night at the dinner hour. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would bring along others only if the food were more reasonably priced. It's a shame that these incredible servers probably make less in tips than Denny's servers because of volume.

We enjoyed the Spindletop it was just a special date. The main Entrée was OK but the appetizer was great. I recommend it but don't expect a large of varieties on the menu or great food. I recommend it and I will go again.

Wow! What a fantastic experience!

My wife and I took her parents to Houston to celebrate their anniversary and my Mother-In-Law's Birthday. We called ahead to see if there was anything Spindletop could do to help make this a memorable night.

Adrian did a fantastic job adding some surprises to the evening! I know this is something my Mother-in-law will remember forever. She even cried when she saw the personalized message on the menu and also when she received a birthday card signed by all the staff that were working that night (those weren't the only surprises). Those extra personal touches are what really makes the night memorable and builds customer loyalty.

Also, the food was great and our server Mario was fantastic.

Thanks Adrian and all the Spindletop crew for making this a special night for my hard-working in laws! They deserve it!

The host told us it would take 20 min to get a table when we showed up with no reservations the restaurant was 3/4 empty. We then book through OpenTable which had a table within 6 min. Isn't this ridiculous?

Really a disapointing experience. Started with lukewarm tea and went downhill from there. Had to ask for a glass of ice to try and make iced tea cold. Then had to ask for sweetner as there was none on table. Then ordered the seafood pot for two. The broth was very good but the seafood was mostly some type of fish. A few shrimp, two small lobster tails (3 oz or less), clams and mussels. Three of the mussels had not opened (indicates they were dead before cooking). Waitress slightly dropped the bowl when serving and spilled a cup or so on our table. Covered the mess with a cloth napkin. Did mnot offer to clean it up or move us. Remember - this is the downtown Houston Hyatt. Really a lackluster experience. Suggest diners looking for a fine dining experience look elsewhere.

We have now taken three grandchildren to see the view of Houston from the Spindletop. We include dessert in our experience and it is an adventure we all enjoy. From the grand lobby of the Hyatt to the glass elevator cabs to stepping out into one of the most amazing restaurant experiences Houston has to offer it has always been memorable. The staff have always been accommodating and gracious and attentive even though we don’t order from the bar or get full meals and are as helpful to the youngsters as any adult guest.
We felt it is a great addition to a visit to downtown Houston and hope to do this with each grandchild in time.

The service was great. They were very prompt and the atmosphere was relaxed and very enjoyable. The views of the city, of course, were great right! That's why you go there! My fiancé grew up in Houston and had a great time looking at all of the buildings and remembering some of their former names, pointing out which ones were his favorites and the ones that had been renovated from a time back when he as a kid. Oh and our waiter even brought us a surprise birthday dessert that I didn't event ask for! It was great.

I was at the Hyatt for a conference and was taking some clients out to dinner, so it was very accommodating for that. The food was very good especially the clam chowder. That was excellent. It wasn't loud in there so we were able to have good conversation without having to scream to be heard. I really enjoyed the views and would definitely recommend for a nice meal with couples as well.

Great service and food. Our server was on top of everything and the chef came out to ask how everything was. I am a stickler for service and quality and my expectations where more than met. Worth every dollar and I usually don't say that often. I wouldn't eat here everyday due to price, but we have definitely missed out on previous special occasions. It even prompted me to book a room at the Hyatt. I would say there is an opportunity for bundle deals with hotel stays plus dinner (not understanding the owner dynamics). It was so convenient to eat, drink and be a floor away from it all. Great experience.
