“Never a failure always a success!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Today I had the seafood salad and as always the ceviche. HUGE lobster claw, nice light dressing, just the right amount of fruit paired with crumbled feta cheese. The ceviche had fresh sliced jalapenos and big bites of lump crab with the perfect amount of lime. You have to have their bloody mary, fresh horseradish. Oh my gosh! Officially the best Bloody Mary I have ever had. It went perfect with my healthy seafood lunch. I have been here so many times and always try other dishes and they never let me down. The staff is attentive and friendly and really enjoy having you as a guest. I do recommend reservations, via phone or Open table. It gets busy at lunch time. I almost forgot to mention the fab piano player, how could I forget so classy. Contemporary atmosphere, well choreographed staff and extremely attentive management overseeing the floor. Today we had some darling models showing off the latest fashions. The bar is friendly if you are by yourself and want to have a drink or lunch you don't have to feel left out or uncomfortable if you are by yourself. LOVE IT!!

“Fine food while shopping”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A great restaurant located in Saks Fifth Avenue to enable you to dine while shopping. Simple style and good service. The pork chop and salmon are wonderful. Ditto for dessert where it is hard to decide between the sorbet and the banana nut bread pudding. Goat cheese crepe is an interesting selection for appetizer, or try the grilled peach salad. Good wine selection and mixed drinks. A clear cut above the food court and there is a view out the windows (try that on the food court).

“Brunch Review”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Shopping in Galleria mall and wife and I decided to stop in for Brunch. Seated right away and nice 3 Pc. Jazz band playing. Ordered a Spicy Bloody Mary which had the spice but was missing the flavor one expects. I Ordered the Huevos Rancheros which was not bad, and she had the Beef Benedict but both of our dishes missed the fruit plate that was supposed to come with meals. Guess the server just forgot. Would have to come back to try a meal fom the dinner menu to really determine if its recommended or not.

“All-around wonderful dining experience.”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Please don't let the fact that this restaurant is in Saks in the Galleria scare you. Our experience was simply perfect from start to finish. We ordered off the special 3-course menu. We started with the shrimp and grits appetizer. I had the short ribs and it was delicious. Husband had the mahi mahi. He enjoyed his as well. For dessert, I had the frozen choc soufflé and he had the bread pudding.
Also, try their signature martini. It was spectacular. Service was over the top. One of the chefs visited with us at our table.
Try it!!

“Branzini Served Tableside - out of this world!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Located in Saks at the Galleria Mall, we expected a good meal, but not one like this. The quality of this "similar to Sea Bass" from Australia was exceptional. Served table side by well-trained staff, easily our best meal in Texas as well as many other locations. What a pleasant surprise.
