Excellent Restaurant as to be expected

Super bar and good food. I had the steak which was excellent and very much enjoyed the evening. Parking is tough even with the valet as the place is in a very tight strip mall in River Oaks.

Valet parking for lunch is very difficult to negotiate; there are no open parking spaces and the valet attendants are not very helpful. I circled for 20 minutes before I could park. The bread at the beginning of the meal is very tasty. The Caesar salad, understated, but still tasty and served with a wafer coated with a very tangy... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and beautiful view from the second floor, however the pricey steak my husband ordered was very bland, no salt no pepper, just a grilled steak sitting there lonely on its plate. The sides we ordered werent all that great either. I ordered fish and that was overcooked and very dry, so much so, I... More

This is a decent spot for an upscale dinner. There is too much importance place on style and not substance! For the price paid, I don't think I will be back anytime soon.

The restaurant is upscale. My friends and I wanted to valet park but wasn't anyone around so we parked ourselves. The service was really slow and it wasn't crowded it took about 20 minutes for bread to be delivered and another 30 minutes to get the ordered taking. I ordered the cabin burger which was very good. The portion was... More

I hosted a program for my clients there in a private room and was unimpressed by the service given by the staff there. The food was ok but there are better places in Houston to visit if your craving a Great Steak.

Rarely, do I give such poor marks to a well established Restaurant. However; from the cynical and sarcastic server to the main entrees served cold. Then, requesting a manager both in person and then sending an email without receiving correspondence is most disturbing and alarming!
