Didn't know what to expect, but it was an ideal place for conversation (in the back patio). The food was wondrous. Would go back next time we're in Houston.

I have to give this place top marks on practically everything. The stylish decor of the restaurant was such that you'd feel comfortable strolling in wearing a pair of jeans or a fantastic dress or suit. The food was served piping hot, perfectly seasoned, and wonderfully tasty. Service was impeccable. The drinks were amazing. I was seriously bowled over and am already looking forward to returning on my next visit to Houston.

Outstanding food, great waiters. Have enjoyed brunch, lunch, and dinner there. The brunch is superb, just don't plan on eating the rest of the day. Scallops, goat, snapper, duck, lobster, everything inthe menu is delicious and meticulously prepared. Linger over a cocktail or one of their smoky margaritas. Highly recommend!!

We went here as a group of 12 for a going away lunch for a coworker and every single person out of the 12 hated it. To start with the front door weighs about 800 pounds for unknown reasons and the women in our group couldn’t even open it and nobody from the restaurant bothered to help them. We sat down and the server suggested two samplers which are typically cheap but in this case we found out later on the bill they cost $45 each! In our group people ordered a good variety of food from chicken, to beans, to beef, to octopus, to cactus all of it was awful. One person trying to be courteous to our manager tried to force feed himself this food and it took him about 2 hours to do so while trying not to throw up. Altogether our bill was over $700 for lunch and our company asked that nobody ever go to such an expensive place again which is not a concern because nobody in our group would be willing to return. If you are concerned with being seen in an expensive restaurant and think it will make you look hip I suppose you may want to eat here, if you want something that actually tastes good you will be better off going to Taco Bell.
