Had a really fantastic brunch last Sunday. The omelettes are spectacular as is the sliced ham. I didn't try any of the non-breakfast items, but they had at least 8 different dinner menu items sitting out to choose from. Our waiter was perfect; just the right amount of attention. Lots of fruit, some nice waffles, and there's also pizza and... More

We decided to eat here after a show. After all it's in the playbill stating the place to go after a show. Yeah not so much. We walked to the restaurant after our show ended. Arrived to be greeted by no one. The manager (we think) blew past us without a word. We stood waiting to be seated for 15... More

Despite the estimated 45 mins to 1 hour for delivery, our pizza came very quickly - in about 30 mins. The smaller pizza was estimated for 2 people, and it was plenty unless you are super hungry. It had a nice fluffy but not too thick crust. Of course everything is usually better fresh out of the oven, so as... More

My adult daughter and I arrived early to eat before a performance at the Hobby Center, there were few guests there when we arrived, by the time we left the place was packed. We ordered from the Playbill Menu, neither of us cared for the sauce on the lobster ravioli, the bacon wrapped shrimp were delicious, crab cakes average. We... More

Highly recommend you make a reservation as it gets packed prior to a nearby show. The three-course "Act 1" special is a good bargain. Wine prices reasonable by the glass. My only criticism is that my lobster ravioli needed more sauce. It was extremely busy and I think they may have sat under the lights for a moment. More sauce... More

I eat there everytime I come from ARKANSAS to attend the opera. I love their many selections and over the years probably have tried them all. On my last visit I had Tres Leches for dessert. It was unbelievably - only a Latin chef can make it taste that good. After the opera we went back in for a drink... More

I was visiting Houston for the International Quilt Festival and had the bell captain make a reservation for dinner at 6:30pm. We took the hotel shuttle to the restaurant arriving at 6:25pm. The hostess told us we were early and asked if we could wait in the bar. We found the bar absolutely jammed with other patrons awaiting their tables.... More
