Pleasant interior and great eager beaver attitude on part of student servers. They are trying very hard to please. Copious quantities of food. Portions are huge. They must think we all eat like students. My vegetarian baguette satisfied even though it was hard to handle it was so big. Sweet potato fries also very tasty. Can get loud when crowded.

I took in dinner at Eric’s restaurant which is in the Hilton Hotel/University of Houston. Upon entering the restaurant, I was greeted by a friendly hostess who walked me to my table and within minutes my server took my order, after making several suggestions. The meal was served in a short period and was very good. The restaurant was clean... More

As you might know by now this place is ran by college students and I have to admit the food wasn't too bad. Breakfast I had granola parfait and fruit was fresh and all tasted great. Had an omelet and it's pretty hard to mess that up, but for being in Texas and not having any hot sauces is not... More

I met a friend for lunch at Eric’s which is located at the Hilton University of Houston. The experience was delightful and there have been some changes in the menu since I had lunch there about two years ago. They started us off with some house made chips. I stuck to my old favorite and ordered the Beef Tenderloin Sandwich.... More

I decided to make use of the Bar area for a couple of late dinner snacks at Eric’s restaurant. The restaurant is served and maintained by students of the university who were pretty much attentive on the food but less so on drink refills. I enjoyed the Cobb Salad, Truffle Fries, Seafood Gumbo Soup, and Pan Seared Crab Cakes over... More

We came there for a business meeting and were able to have a really good meal, in a classy setting, and right in the hotel where we were staying. The meal size was moderate, so it was not great if you are very hungry and looking for a big meal.

I went to dinner at Eric's after a long day of meetings in another city and then a flight to Houston. Eric's had relatively few people eating when I arrived. A waiter showed up almost as soon as I was seated. I ordered the salmon with risotto. When I asked about wine by the glass, the waiter suggested sangria on... More

I must say I was well impressed by breakfast at Eric's restaurant. Décor and seating were remarkable. The buffet items were also delicious! Smoked salmon, sausage cuts, and even the hot breakfast! One could have gotten eggs prepared any style! Would definitely consider dining here the next time I am in Houston!

Just off the lobby of the University Hilton. Staffed and run by students of the Conrad Hilton College of Hotel Management at the U of Houston. Two for an early dinner. Nice decor, comfortable chairs and table, background music nicely muted. Restaurant only a quarter full, so noise was not a problem. Attentive server brought us drinks quickly. We ordered... More
