We had a drink at the bar first. The bartender was super friendly and chatty and went and told the restaurant for us that we arrived and would be getting to our table later than the reservation (they weren't busy). After moving to the restaurant, the service was super attentive as there was only one other couple there (a Wed night). Food was divine, everything. If you want a quiet gorgeous place when spending that kind of money, you cannot go wrong here.

This was Me and my Fiancee's second visit. The first time was an wedding engagement celebration with our friends at the Remington Bar and on 3/30/17 we celebrated with our Wedding Party at the St. Regis Restaurant. Even though there was a mix-up on where we had made the reservations our waiter was very attentive and went above and beyond to make our night pleasant. The food was prepared to our satisfaction. We would definitely revisit again.

The food and service was great. Quite and easy to talk.

The only downside was it wasn't very romantic and the occasion was Valentine's Day

I am a recurring guest of The Remington and I am always pleasantly surprised to see that I receive outstanding service every time I am there. It definitely meets the St. Regis classic standards.

How absolutely fabulous to find a restaurant in which you can have a conversation without shouting! There was no background music at all and it wasn't missed. The lively conversation and laughter around us was more than enough to give an air of conviviality. Food and service were just great. We had Christmas dinner and enjoyed the special menu.

Very disappointing Christmas evening dinner. Started off well but as dining room filled up, the service was quite bad. Food was left on table for 15 minutes before courses and waitstaff was overwhelmed. Food was mediocre and very overpriced for quality of meal. I have dined before at this restaurant but will not return again.

The Remington never disappoints! We've gone there many times for a late breakfast over the years and its elegant ambiance and wonderful cuisine is matched by the caring and attentiveness of the wait staff. Particular kudos to Ron W, our server, who made our recent breakfast experience at The Remington worthy of more than five stars!

We have been to The Remington several times in the past . It was called The Remington Grill at some point . I was disappointed with my fish , I would give it a 6 out of 10 . My wife's entree was also not up to par . She ordered the Cornish hen . Not very tasty at all . Service was excellent though .

The Remington has an excellent breakfast. It is open early, the service is first rate and the food is delicious. This value is reflected in the cost, such that I would only go there for business or special occasions.

I took my daughter for a Father's Day brunch at the Remington and it was delightful. The food was exceptional (Croque Madame for me) and the service was superb. We ate quite well, including dessert but no wine, and the check was around $75; very reasonable I thought.

The Remington at the St. Regis is an elegant oasis! Perfect for personal or business dining. The food is excellent, the decor elegant, and the service both friendly and caring. We went recently for breakfast and the Brioche French Toast and Smoked Salmon platters were both top notch.

Food was excellent as usual, we come for some special occasions but this time service was not up to Remington standards. Seem to have very few waitresses for the amount of patrons, the ones available offered the quality of service we are used at Remington but this time it took much longer than usual to take our order, refresh coffee, etc... Will be back, hope the keep staff according to amount of patrons.

We went for brunch last weekend - it's pricey, so it's definitely a special occasion spot. The food was good, but the service was VERY slow for the number of people in the restaurant. I was surprised by how long it took the food to come out.

So very disappointed with everything....I felt like i was eating in a conference room. The fish was overdone, and the creme brulee was sooooo running I didn't eat it in fear the eggs weren't cooked
Still can't believe this is listed as 4 stars

Visited the Remington for lunch to celebrate a birthday. The set lunch is really good value the ravioli was paper thin and delicious and creme brulee tasty too. Our waiter was helpful and friendly and organised a special cake plate for the birthday we were celebrating which was kind and thoughtful. We enjoyed our lunch here and will definitely be back to try the afternoon tea at the St Regis.

There is a garden room at the back of the Remington and I recommend sitting in there.
We had brunch there last Sunday and it was perfect ion every way.
The atmosphere is beautiful and refined and the food and service unbeatable.
A wonderful find in the St Regis Houston.

Showed up for a 9:00 dinner reservation. no one there to greet us , no one seemed to be working, restaurant did not even seem open. We looked around for someone and waited 10 minutes but no one showed up. Had dinner elsewhere. Did have breakfast there the next morning and the service was better and the food was good.

Not up to snuff for a St Regis, typical hotel food at nasty (high) prices. Average at best, did not have the wine selection we ordered. Combined with a mediocre hotel - not a great experience.

I made a reservation for my friend's birthday on Monday for dinner on Friday, the 21st. On friday, at 5:20 I received a call regarding my 7:00 dinner reservation. Steven called to let me know that the restaurant was booked for a private party that evening and we would be eating in the bar. When I asked the manager why they took my reservation rather than let me know it was not available he said there was a private party and we could eat in the bar! There was no apology, if fact they were clueless as to why we were upset. We did NOT dine at the Remington and went to Cavour at Hotel Granduca instead. It was a beautiful restaurant with wonderful staff. We had a lovely evening!
