I think this is nice spot to hang with some friends on a Sunday. The Bottomless mimosas are great! The food is good as well - recommend the Cajun Benedict - it's like eggs Benedict with crawfish. They do have a buffet for about $25/person...More

The food was quite good and the portions adequate. The appetizers were certainly built for 2 or 3. Excellent apple crumb dessert. However, service was spotty and the staff didn't seem to care that much. The place could also have had better standards for cleanliness....More

There's not a better brunch place in Houston. Two words: bottomless biomass. We love sitting outside on the patio and relaxing. There will always be a wait though so call ahead if you can.

My wife and I decided to go into Houston and have dinner at a restaurant that we had not tried before. We ended up selecting Farrago World Cuisine in Midtown due to its menu and decided on a three-course meal selection with a Groupon. I...More

Still a happening Sunday Brunch spot for the partiers. Bottomless mimosas are the draw as is a decent menu and great people watching. Most hang inside but there is limited outdoor seating. A great spot.

My wife and I had dinner at Farrago's last night. We used a Groupon coupon good for a three-course dinner for two for $39, a helluva deal. Of course, booze is not included, so we still spent a few bucks, but the food and service...More

Extremely disappointing experience at Sunday Brunch. I organized and hosted a birthday Brunch for a friend that turned into a disaster. People waited over an hour for their food. Some left, some cancelled their orders. We heard that most of the kitchen staff quit last...More

Description
Named the best brunch by H-Texas Magazine for 2011, Farrago is nestled in the bustling Midtown district. The restaurant prides itself in making everything possible from scratch. During the week, it lives up to its name (Farrago means a mixture of things) servicing the hip young professionals in Midtown with a cornucopia of items from all over the world (Posole, Vietnamese Salad, Cioppino, Sushi Tuna Appetizer with seawead salad, Jerked Chicken Wings, Pulled Pork Sandwich, freshly made Pizzas and even Fried Oysters with teardrop tomatoes, arugula and a wasabi cream sauce). It also has a lively happy hour with over 70 bottles of wine by the glass and appetizers for either $3, $5 or $7.
