“Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We found out about this restaurant from a friend and then sampled their food at Taste of the Triangle, so we decided to try it out. Really glad we did! We had the crab cake for appetizer, which was delicious lump crab meat without a lot of breading. For dinner I had the shrimp & grits, and my hubby had the special, which was 2-4oz filets, one was steak Diane and the other was peppercorn steak served with shiitake mushrooms and seafood mashed potatoes. The food was gourmet, different and very delicious!! Our server, Jacob, was outstanding and very professional. The only downside was the restaurant was very small, so there was not much privacy when seated. I hope they can expand to a little bit larger venue where the tables don't have to be so close. But, this restaurant still deserves a 5 star for quality & service. We will definitely be returning and I can't wait to try some of the other items on the menu. Also, their menu is available online.

“Meh”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

The food was okay, but so ridiculously overpriced that I won't return. I think this is one of those places that charges what they do so people can "brag" that they are wealthy enough to eat there, but the food quality doesn't back it up at all. For this price point, Bryan's is far superior.

Best brunch i have ever had. Try eggs sardu OMG!!! The best thing ever! If you go for dinner try stake Diane, or the shrimp and grits, or the short ribs, the whole menu is amazing. Great atmosphere, great staff, awesome place.

“Keep coming back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have eaten here probably 50 times and still keep going!! The food is absolutely amazing and the people complaining about chairs, atmosphere, price ect. obviously are never happy with anything!! My mom lives in houston and is very picky about food and is big on excellent gourmet food makes sure she eats here every time she is in town and she loves it!! The spinach goat cheese ravioli is to die for as well as the strawberry goat cheese salad and dont forget to get some bananas foster before you leave!! This is a very unique restaurant with outstanding food and super nice staff!!

“Great service, delicious food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

I had a pasta dish and my husband had steak. We both liked our meals very much. The service is very professional but warm. They need to remodel the restrooms. The food is quite expensive, but the atmosphere is more intimate than a place like Carraba's or Saltgrass.
