Went with friends (party of 4) for HRW. Made a reservation and were seated on time. Waited 20 minutes in our booth, no service whatsoever. Finally flagged someone down, asked for menus & water. Took 10 more minutes to get these items. Granted, they were busy, but service was ridiculously non-existent. Finally got our food orders placed (which was an... More

Visited this restaurant during Houstons Restaurant Week for lunch. Restaurant inside very nice, not too bright, not a fan of the cutlery, knives awkward in the way they rest. Music was way too loud for lunchtime chatting, we asked for it to be turned down, which it was for a while, so we moved tables but it was loud in... More

All of the dishes we had were amazing. I had tortilla soup, huevos rancheros and cinnamon bun. The soup was just okay but the huevos ranchers are... More

I had breakfast here. I got the eggs and chicken bacon plus coffee. The eggs were good but I did not care for the chicken sausage. The plate was $13 before tax and I think the coffee was around $3.50 or so. I thought that was too much for a plate of eggs.

I experienced excellent service here and it had a nice atmosphere but the food was horrible. I didn't even bother finishing my food. I just paid and left. I am big on service and this place had it, they just really need to work on the food!
