We came here to celebrate a birthday. It is known as one of the better restaurants in Houston. Their service is good and the location is beautiful, however the food is just OK. It is overpriced for what it is. We won't be coming back...More

Could not have had a more perfect afternoon. Staff was attentive but not overbearing. Table was perfectly situated in a nook overlooking the garden. Food was excellent an entrees were right sized. This will be a regular brunch spot for us.

The inside decoration of the multi-level space seems off in daylight, especially the dark, steep, narrow stairs to the restrooms. Conversation with our group was difficult due to neighboring tables being too close. The Bloody Marys received universal approval. Crab cakes just ok, along with...More

Celebrated a significant milestone wedding anniversary here for a family member. Staff looked after the couple and the 20 guests wonderfully!! We didn't have a sit down meal but had canapés and then a Buffett type plate service. Beautiful salmon, prawns and beef. Highly recommend...More
