Caution! You will become repeat customers.

Every visit to Comfort includes a dinner at 814 -- unfortunately, that means we only dine here once or twice a year. One would never expect to find such an amazing chef hiding in Comfort, Texas. Yes, the menu is limited, but who needs more choices when everything on the menu is good? On our most... read more

Attempted to eat dinner here but we arrived early before they were open. Walked in and a waitress asked us what we were doing. Very rude. Said we would like dinner and she told us they were booked for the entire night and that we needed a reservation. Drove back through town around 6:45, 45 min after they opened and... More

You need a reservation and people who don't make one will be put off. That said, I have never found a better place to have am exceptional meal. The owner is a master at preparing fish courses. My favorite place.

There are only three appetizers and three entre items on the menu, but they all are excellent. We are there twice this trip and sampled all the items. Each was well done and perfectly cooked.

We had just gotten married and were driving into Comfort TX for our quiet get away honeymoon. We did not know the area and by chance walked into the best restaurant we have ever been too! The food was amazing and they treated us so well. They even made a desert for us and treated us like family. I can't... More

I had one of the best meals in my life at this little restaurant. Tiny, down home place with gourmet food. The quail was delicious. The bread wasn't very good, but the rest of our meal was outstanding.

It is the only choice in Comfort for fine dining. Housed in a small limestone building with wooden floor -- originally an 1800's post office I believe -- it has lots of character. It's on High Street in the center of old Comfort near the few other shops and places to eat or drink. I've never had a bad meal... More

I'm a local that eats here - maybe once per mo. Chef owned and operated - the food is excellent, sometimes better than excellent. Decor is nothing special, and service can be spotty at times. This is a well known dinner place to locals. Kinda small, and you will probably need reservations. Limited menu which changes frequently.

This place had charming ambiance, somewhat above ordinary food, and made a great effort to be the special restaurant in Comfort. Our steak was really good and cooked just as we liked it. Caesar salads were fine, we could order wine by the glass from a small selection - they have many offerings by the bottle - the bread was... More
