I eat here regularly and my favorite things are a chicken burrito drenched in queso, and a nice strong margarita, and the mango margarita is good, too. Alejandra has waited on me several times and was super sweet!

My wiffe and I go hear when we go to the movie at River Oaks - or when we want something like a nice pizza and a glass of wine in the bar. The good is consitently excellent in this place and it is amazing that a place so large has such attentive service. Full marks to the management and the c…

My husband and I live in Katy and take trips downtown just to eat here. We love the chicken schwarma (sp?), teboulah (sp?) and hummus. I haven't found another Med. restaurant that I like as much as La Fendee (in my area anyways). Convienently, it is located close to my sister-in-law's hair sa…

My parents, my husband and 10 month old visited this location and received quite a disappointing experience. I was so disappointed by the poor customer service I called up the chain's comment line and gave my feedback. \r My call was returned a few days later by manager Jason Robicheaux. I wa…

Although this place can get very busy for lunch because its in the mall - it has the best Salad Nicoise ever! Besides not being able to find salad Nicoise almost anywhere else! The food is all great, and love looking at all the delectable sweets in the window display case too! The tomato basil s…

La Madeleine is fine for what it is. A decent, inexpensive, casual place with decent food that's fast and convenient. If you go with those expectations, it's a fine place. If you're expecting something that's better than average, you'll probably be disappointed. I'd say it's about the same as Ca…

This caffe has been one of the places that I kept visiting over the years. It used to be great place to go for tiramisu or some other pastries, right now their prices have become increasingly scary (close to $3 for eclaire?) and the quality of pastries has gone down considerable. I only go for …

they could hold up against competitors with the food they serve. I was surprised how delicious it was. for being a small place the food was amazing. only three stars because we said thank you so many times to our servers and they didn't say anything back to us at all so service is at a 1

BE WARNED ITS AN OK PLACE BUT YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL!! THE FOOD ARRIVED 2 HOUR LATE! I CALLED SEVERAL TIMES AND DEPENDING ON WHICH SALES REP YOU GET YOU GET DIFFERENT STORIES! FIRST THEY ARE RUNING LATE, THEN THE STORY WAS HE LEFT, THE LAST STORY I GOT WAS THE DRIVER HAD SEVERAL ORDERS AND WAS ON HIS WAY.... YEA THAT WASNT THE CASE AT ALL! THE FOOD ARRIVED AND THERE WAS SOMETHING FISHY ABOUT THE DRIVER, HE GAVE ME MY RECIEPT FIRST AND WATCHED ME AS I WROTE NO TIP (SIMPLY BC IT TOOK HIM 2 HOURS TO BRING ME MY FOOD). THE FOOD WAS HOT AND GOOD NO COMPLAINTS ON THAT. MY ORDER WAS PURCHASED AT THE END OF SEPT. ALMOST 1 WEEK AND A HALF LATER I CHECK MY BANK ACCT AND BEHOLD I SEE A CREDIT FOR PIZZA HUT FOR $3 AND SOME CHANGE ADDED. I CALLED WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED AND TURNS OUTS THE IDIOT DRIVER DECIDED TO TIP HIMSELF! OF COURSE I WAS FURIOUS! BUT THE MANAGER (ASHLEY) WAS NICE AND DIFUSED THE SITUATION. THEY CREDIT THE ACCOUNT AND MADE SURE I WAS HAPPY WHEN WE GOT OFF THE PHONE. I CAN T BELIEVE THE DUMB DRIVER DID THAT!!! EITHER WAY IF YOU WANT TO ORDER FROM HERE BE SURE TO DO CARRY OUT AND CASH. IF YOU DO DELIVERY AND CC KEEP YOUR RECIEPT AND KEEP TRACK OF THE TRANSACTION.
Catherine’s latest venture, Café Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You can’t go wrong requesting Catherine’s favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules Marinières, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit Pavé de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of Café Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites.Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.
We decided on the Villagio & couldn't be happier! The venue is clean, spacious, and simply elegant. We had our ceremony and reception here. Trish, owner & overall planner, is prompt, thorough, charismatic and easy to work with. The venue is tucked away at the end of a street, with private parking & far from the street. There are inside/outside room options, but the trademark is a beautiful spiral staircase for a grand bridal entrance! The package we chose was the Ultimate II. This package comes with everything except the DJ and videographer so we didn’t have to worry about hiring various vendors for each part of our wedding. Trish already has a strong vendor selection. Our package came with food, cake, linens, floral arrangements, photo booth, lighting, photography, 2 HPD officers, and a wedding coordinator. We paid extra for drapery and it was beautiful. The caterers allowed us to test the food in a prior meeting so we can give them very specific details. Mr. & Mrs. King 08/12/2016
This is my favorite Mexican restaurant ever. We have frequented a lot of Mexican food restaurants, and who hasn't when you live in Texas. But Tierra Luna Grill is by far the best I have ever been to.The flavor of the salsa is awesome. Evidently they grill the tomatoes for the salsa and who knows how they spice it up. The chips are warm and thin and crispy. They give you a small bowl of queso with the chips. I could dine on the chips and stuff alone. They were soooo good. And the waitstaff is terrific at keeping the bowls full and making their customers happy. The owner even came by and visited with us. She was wonderful.And then there are the entrees. All I can say is 'WOW!' They were marvelous. The Carnitas, Fajitas, and the Barbacoa are to die for. Perfectly cooked and spiced to enhance the flavor, not overpower it. The charro beans and spanish rice where super as well. Fantastic homecooked Mexican food and the waitstaff is great. We very highly recommend the Tierra Luna Grill.
Ate there over 4th. Laid my cell phone on corner of table. Turned around to get glasses .Turned back, waiter was there. Picked up menus and left. Phone was gone.Waiter swore he didn't see it. Manager swore he didn't see it on video. Used phone tracker. Called back manager laughed. Told him I would call police if they didn't come up with it. Four days later, received a call saying they had found it in menu bin. That I must have closed the menu on it! Tell me how you can pick up a menu with a cell in it and not know something is there just from the weight? Also how would you carry a menu with a cell without it falling out unless you were intentionally balancing it? Then how would you dump it in a bin without hearing it clunk?! Folk, they have a nice scan going on. Waiter steals something then manager swears the video shows nothing. I say they are liars and thieves. Food is pretty good, but don't trust them to not steal from you.
Las Ventanas restaurant and cantina's serves as a portal for Mexico's culinary world and demonstrates rightly why it is one of the world's great cuisines. The proprietor, Alejandro Sneider, family has been serving authentic Mexican food in Houston for more than 35 years. Las Ventanas’ interior radiates sun-baked colors, the ambience is cozy and friendly, and the decor reflects Mexico’s colorful and vibrant culture. The tree- covered and gorgeously landscape patio is the perfect place to unwind. Executive chef Jose Hernandez creates the bold flavors using fresh ingredients that distinguish Mexican cuisine.Brilliant sauces showcase the remarkably diverse flavors gracing the authentic, traditional dishes. Indulge your palate with delicious recipes while sipping on an ice-cold margarita. Las Ventanas is also a family haven - you and your children will be enchanted by the patio and the no-mess kid zone.
I have been a life long customer, and it kills me to post this negative review. Carlos' has gone down hill. I have been over ten times in six months, and every time I go the restaurant is totally empty. The food is amazing and the price is great(if you can get that price) On my past two visits, the waitress has changed my order to make the bill more expensive. I let it slide the first time, but the 2nd time was enough. The manager was so clueless to business and failed to care that my receipt did not match what I got. I am never going back and would like everyone else to be very aware of your order. I recommend the restaurant for its food, but not for the customer service and waiting staff. Recommended meal: The Don Lupe - $8.55 (I urge you to watch your ticket if you choose to go after reading this)
This restaurant reopened since the end of Jan.2013 because of the ownership changes. Every dishes totally different with previous. Simple menu but fresh and delicious. Main menu : 15 kinds of fresh sushi roll(except raw fish) , Teriyaki, Homemade Dumpling, Fresh Salad and Daily Special with the unbeatable price. I am office lady has to work 5 days, so that do not have enough time cook for my family, when I been here at first time I had loved here, 'cause whatever I bought for my family, they ate all of them and even asked for next time order. Sushi roll, Teriyaki, Salad and Dumpling we tried all. Here is the best one I knew in Katy, yummy and health food with acceptable price, strongly recommend!! Promise if you try, and you couldn't forget it!!
Accidentally over paid the cashier today. Wouldn't give my money back, called manager and he did nothing. Said he'll be there tomorrow. She was very rude from the get go. All I said was are you serious to my sister, who witnessed the entire transaction. Where the lady replied yes I'm serious in a rude, sarcastic tone. I did get angry and said some things to my sister who had left on the phone but never directly to the cashier. She laughed as I walked out. No 1800 number to call. Gave her 3 five dollar bills instead of 2 five dollar bills. No drawer recount, nothing. No phone call today. I go in quite often, never had a problem before. Everyone else including the owners are usually very polite.
We went to Maggie Rita's on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant at first looks closed because to "Open" sign was off. We decided to try anyway. We sat at the bar. The server was nice, but there was definately no suggestive selling. She was an order-taker. This being our first time here, we really didn't know what was good. We ordered the Stuffed avocados for an appetizer. It was so bland that we seasoned it ourself and asked for some aoli to dip it in. Both of our dinners where just as bland. There was nothing special about the margaritas as well. Then we got the bill and realized we had spent $73. for blah food. I will not return.
