I love the Daily Review for its relaxing outdoor patio and I know it can get crowded. That's why we made a reservation for dinner Saturday night. When we showed up, we stood patiently at the door for 5 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our existence. Finally, a woman yelled at us from behind the bar that she'd be with us. In the meantime, she prepared silverware, answered the phone, and served customers sitting at the bar. After standing for close to 15 minutes, waiting to sit at one of the many tables labeled ""reserved"" - we gave up and left. On the car ride home, we called back to cancel our reservation and we were put on hold for another 5 minutes. We are a pretty laid back couple, and really don't mind waiting for good food. Houston is such a hot bed for great food - we couldn't justify spending our money at a place restaurant that clearly didn't have time for our reservation. FYI - We drove to Branchwater Tavern, where we were greeted and seated immediately. All three courses were phenomenal.
