I have been coming to this restaurant for about 11 years and should have written a review sooner. I think Lomonte's has been around in the neighborhood for about 25 years. The restaurant is located in a cute little house and Barbi Lomonte is a gracious proprietress/hostess. Food is outstanding (I had the osso bucco which fell off the bone), the service was stupendous (Kat, you rock!) and the table by the window is perfect for an intimate birthday dinner for 2. There is also a nice wine selection. If you want a venue for a romantic dinner, this is it. There is also live music occasionally in the jazz bar and an outdoor patio for dining if you like.

I attended a large group birthday party one one occasion. The food and service was excellent. The menu has a broad selection and a good wine won't necessitate a small business loan. The atmosphere is conducive to a calm meal and allows for conversation at the table (unlike many loud restaurants today)

The second trip was as good as the first except for one thing. There was not a full house and instead of spreading the customers out for privacy, we were all seated at adjoining tables. Our dinner was made less special by a middle aged couple who talked loudly to each other and added loud cell phone calls to the mix.

I do not understand why others have not reviewed but I have been to Houston only a few times and go here each time based on a good friend's suggestions.

The food and service is outstanding. We will attend many many more times.

Thank Bryan G
