Enthusiastic server; good food; good prices

Menu limited for my tastes; ordered filet mignon. Ok but not as tastey as I would have hoped. Prices more reasonable than many in that area. service was fast enough

staying at the hotel, and needed something to eat after missing lunch. Our server was wonderfully helpful, and the food was good. We had the guacamole - highly recommend. Followed that with the tenderloin sliders (a little tough for me and too oniony) and the fries were not crispy (soggy, but they were potatoes so never too bad). We also... More

We both enjoyed our $36 filet and side of Yukon, basically garlic, mashed potatoes. The mojitos are well made. Others in our party ordered steak salad, seafood and two ordered a vegan dish (roasted veggies) and they all seemed pleased with their choices. The wait staff was warm and inviting. We had a reservation and were seated on time. It... More

Went with a colleague who had never really been to Texas. Guacamole was perfect as an authentic appetizer... Steak and sides were great, especially the Mac & Cheese. Noise level was good for conversation. Waiter didn't rush us but suggested he get our order before a large party nearby ordered...appreciated!

At a very busy time of year, at a very busy time of day, we were able t make reservations for two at a window seat. Server went beyond any expected level of service and not only got our drink and food orders right, but when he thought that I was not 100% satisfied with my steak, he bought our... More

Wonderful restaurant in a kind of funky location. Once you get to the restaurant, you won't be disappointed. We went to celebrate a birthday for a co-worker. It was a quiet weekday night so the atmosphere was a little boring, but still elegant. The service was very good--seasoned waiter. The wine was reasonably priced and the food tremendous. Set your...

I really enjoyed this place - perhaps because I was with a great business colleague. I had an excellent 8oz Fillet and he had steak salad & both were great. Fuelled by a nice Argentinan Cabernet we went our separate ways happy. I hope that you do if you visit.

I have had the beef tenderloin salad twice. Never tasted such tender beef before. The atmosphere and the location is also great. Value for money.

This is a very nice restaurant with an attached bar. You can also get food at the bar. We were there for lunch. I had their enchiladas and she had a pastrami sandwich. Both were wonderful. Service was also excellent. The restaurant is located within the Intercontinental Hotel.
