Good Cocktails and food was nice. Service a little slow but to be fair they were pretty busy. Friendly though. Chicken nachos were lovely but soooo big!

The atmosphere at the Hearsay Gastro Lounge was brilliant. I loved the high ceilings, the giant chandelier hanging in the middle, and the red brick walls. It was a place where vintage European architecture meets rustic and industrial decor. The food was pretty good. I enjoyed the ceviche although the chips were a little stale, and the steak fresco salad... More

Two for lunch. The service was fine but the food was just OK. Spouse had caprese which was drowned in dressing also had the mushroom risotto which was good. I had the seafood risotto which has also good. Since these dishes came fairly quick to the table I suspect they were not made from scratch upon our order. The rice... More

Go here, drink here before a game, after a game, late night - whatever - but, the food is terrible.... sorry guys - fish tacos are served in cold, rubbery, soaking wet tortillas with grocery store salsa on the side....

Our group of three planned to eat and drink here before the Adele concert. Food was very good and satisfying... we were hungry. I ordered the stuffed chicken breast with vegetables. Vegetables were firm and delicious and the goat cheese and spinach stuffed chicken breast was flavorful. Cocktails were good. Unfortunately there was a shortage of wait staff and bartenders... More

My boyfriend and I visited Houston over Halloween weekend to celebrate our anniversary. On Halloween, we decided to go here for lunch and explore downtown before heading to the airport. I am a serious planner, so I had this restaurant scoped out months in advance on our itinerary. Ridiculous I know. So I had really high hopes for this! The... More

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner held upstairs. Very small area but was somewhat secluded. It was uncomfortably warm upstairs made worse by the limited space. I had the salmon and many friends had steak. It was mediocre at best. It is an interesting building but I won't be returning.

We met a friend here for diner. The service was great and food was excellent. You can spend an hour appreciating all of the time that went into decorating the place. I highly recommend reservations and use UBER I didn't see parking. The Tempura Lobster app is a must try!

I was in Houston on Business (Restaurant Consultant) and went here for Breakfast/Brunch all four days I was in the city. Being in the industry I'm very picky about my reviews. What a great atmosphere and the staff was very friendly and balanced work with talking to you. I had the buttermilk fried chicken biscuit benedict everyday for brunch because... More

I ate here on our last night before heading back to UK. The food was perfect and a quirky cocktail menu complimented this. Our waiter Vincent gave us some great tips on some places to check out after our meal which meant we had a wonderful last night in the city.
