“Great service, average food, but the atmosphere....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere was not what we were expecting; the people there were not the type of people (specially women) you want to introduce to your family or hang with. We were just 20 people in the whole bar in a Friday night...boring

“Vinbar was great...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Casual, relaxed atmosphere in the Bar, and excellent appetizers at reasonable prices. Drinks were a little pricey.

“Killer Service and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Valentino is always consistent and the staff is great. It's my favorite thing about the Hotel Derek. I highly recommend their brunch, it's one of the best in Houston.

“Martini Bar Excellence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

This place is in a trendy hotel but it has the feel of a stand alone Martini Bar. The place is usually busiest at Happy Hour time but goes pretty late as well. Plenty of people watching opportunities here. It is a very interesting place.
