Chef salad is so primitive! Just mix of turkey, bacon, cheese etc. you can buy from wallmart.

Very unique experience. Quiet and intimate for lunch. The 43rd's service and food is good. I was blown away by the risotto alfredo. The view is spectacular.

The 43rd has an elegant atmosphere with beautiful views. Their attentive staff and delicious food ensure a good result every time. Overall experience was superb and made our special occasion even more special. I have held several evening events and luncheon here and they never fail to exceed my expectations.

TERRIBLE! And we left. Open Table should not advertise this resturant to the general public. Trying to do something different for our 20th anniversary thought it be cool to try pretty views top 43rd floor. We get there 1pm and no one was there. I walked around the corner and found this guy. He asked "Can I help you" like we're lost. I said we have a reservation and he said "go pick a table" There were like 5 tables in total with 2 taken. The best view was the air vents and a wall. I shared that we booked for special occasion. He said "it don't matter".The rudeness continues, he ask "what do we want to drink. The one page menu did not have drinks listed & it was dirty. This guy seemed to be the host, waiter, & chef. On his way back with water. I told him we're leaving as we are celebrating today. He apologized and we enjoyed our lunch elsewhere! Maybe this place is only for people working in that building? Come on, you guys must know there are to many other options in Houston. Get it right!

The 43rd Restaurant & Lounge is exactly that, perched on the 43rd floor of the Wedge tower. The building itself is highly accessible from all parts of downtown which is why it was chosen for a business lunch.

Pros: Spectacular view, competent food and drink

Cons: the decor looks a bit dated in the light of day and is a bit plain for the white linen dining experience.
