Our first dining experience with Spindletop and although it was a cold and foggy night limiting the gorgeous downtown views it is known for, the ambiance and service was outstanding. We didn’t even notice the views were limited. Truly outstanding menu selections and a nice variety of wine in cellar during our visit, including some of the award winning bottles from past Houston Rodeo Wine competitions. We will be back!

Upon arrival the host asked if it was a special day and yes it was our 6th anniversary. The service was amazing, the staff signed an anniversary card for us. The chef came out and thanked us and signed the card and we had a scoop of delicious ice cream to finish the experience off. Did I mention the view was incredible!

I really like the atmosphere. It was our anniversary AND we wanted to do something special. I had the shrimp and spicey ravoli which was tasty but i would ease up on the sauce (too much). My husband and the glazed grilled salmon. He liked it but said the rice wasn't cooked properly. None of those complaints would stop us from coming again.

Spindletop is a special experience. It is definitely pricey with the vegetarian entrees being $35 a plate, but the view and the service is exceptional. I think it would cost about $30 to just get to the viewing deck of skyscrapers for most big cities, so having food and a relaxing time there is worth the higher prices. The staff made the evening very special with rose petals, a card, taking pictures and a complimentary dessert all for my parents' anniversary.

 (Houston)·Dined on December 8, 2017

Great views of Houston as the restaurant rotates. It takes 45 minutes to make a complete rotation. The view and ambiance make it worth it however, I have had better seafood. Dinner for 2 included a bottle of wine, an appetizer, 2 entrees and a shared dessert for a little over $200 including a 20% tip. Very romantic setting and that's what you're paying for as the food or at least what we had was just ok. Not bad but I expected better. For the price, judging food alone, there are better seafood options in town but I don't think you can beat the view.

Worst service I've ever had. My husband and I went there for dinner after our wedding ceremony. This is where we go every year for our anniversary. We decided to go there for our wedding night for dinner since it's our tradition. We had to ask someone to get our waitress for us for everything. I spoke with the manager who wouldn't give me the time of day, and could care less about what I was telling her. It was very unprofessional and disrespectful. We won't be returning again. The only plus was the incredible food. They really put a negative ending to our wedding night. We were extremely disappointed.

This was an amazing experience!! My wife and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary and we couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate. Ceaser was an amazing waiter and was very informative about the dishes and was very accommodating if there were any changes that needed to be made. The food was simply delicious. Every single course was very well prepared and did not disappoint in the slightest. Overall this is a great place for a special occasion and you will not leave unsatisfied

Hats off to the chefs and staff at Spindletop on Thanksgiving. I have to say the butternut squash and desserts were my favorite. Our waiter Christian was perfect. We were not rushed and as a couple with no family available for this holiday, they made our Thanksgiving dinner perfect. We will be back!

It was a little disappointing. The ambience, decor and views were absolutely beautiful! The food to my surprise was not visually appealing nor was it tasteful. Maybe, if try a different dish to give it a second chance.

This place to me is Good for drinks and tapas, great for a date as the setting and views are amazing.

Have high expectation, but quite disappointed after dining there. The view, ambience is great, however, the table setting looks kind of cheap. The food is just social, our halibut taste odd(not fresh), the host immediately apologized and replace another dish. Our waiter not one time come and asked if we ok or need anything else. The great ambience is a total waste.

View was pretty great. Place, food and ambiance was great too. Service was rather fair. We are from out of town and it would have been nice if the server actually said anything about the place or rather suggested something off the menu. The server did check on us after entrees were served. Though everyone seems to be on a rush even on a slow night.

Great spot for a special occasion. We were going to a show at eight so had a reservation for 615. I had the seafood pot and the wife had the filet. With dessert we were out by about 730. Lois was great. Didn’t feel rushed at all.

I was not impressed with the staff. The host didn't pull the chair and seat my bride, the staff was noisy and generally appears unkept, the flatware wasn't switched out properly, always waiting for drinks, the padded window seal has stains and is filthy. My bride was still happy, but I was not... I kept it to myself not to ruin our evening.

Arrived at 6:15, and we seemed to be the first for dinner on a Tuesday. Reception was slow as the host spoke on the phone for several minutes before greeting and seating us. Our waitress, was great, friendly, fast and had good voice for a happy birthday song at the end. Food was very good and pretty well presented. Overall, enjoyable experience.
