I was pleasantly surprised that 5 minutes before they were closing on Saturday, I was able to get 3 pair of pant legs hemmed and a button sown on a shirt. The cost was $35 + tax which may seem high, but I was in a hurry and they were gracious enough to finish them all even though it was after c…

Cavatore Italian Restaurant serves family-friendly Italian fare. This red-checkered tablecloth restaurant has been serving country-style Italian fare since 1984. Rustic and charming, from the outdoor paddle wheel to the open-loft ceiling, you will experience a unique setting as soon as you step into this 100 year old barn turned restaurant. Located near the Heights on Ella Boulevard a few blocks inside the 610 loop. SInce our last visit a couple of years ago, we understand that Cavatore has acquired new management. We were disappointed to discover that the former piano player, Michael Angelo, who was always very friendly and accommodating, had been replaced by a duo of musicians who are billed as playing jazz but who in actuality, at least while we were present, performed a mixed musical selection. We understand that the food and service has declined somewhat under the new management. We would concur based upon our most recent dining experience. While our service was good and the food quality acceptable if average, it failed to excite us nor did it seem as savory as in the past. For the price diners can do better if seeking authentic Italian cuisine. Old world standard Italian dishes are served in a casual space adorned with an eclectic blend of memorabilia from across Italy. Appetizers include Italian meats and cheeses, squid and escargot. Classic entrees include Spaghetti, ravioli, cannellone and linguini. From the Calamari Fritti appetizer to the Lasagna Al Forno, this casual Italian restaurant provides many several options sure to appeal to the children as well as adults in the group . Leave room for traditional "dolci" like cannoli, tiramisu and spumoni. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply taking a break from the workday world, Cavatore’s is a good choice for a reasonably priced casual Italian venue with an appealing décor. Hopefully Cavatore will regain its stride soon.
I have been to this store two times now and have not been disappointed! The first time I bought at Billy Reid shirt that retailed for $185.00 for only $25. Today, I found another Billy Reid shirt for $30 and an all linen Ralph Lauren long sleeve shirt that was on the clearance rack for $15. Wow! The upside to shopping here is that the owner is very nice and helpful, the size selection is pretty good, and you can find really great deals if you know what you need and take the time to go through the racks. The downside to shopping here is that you will find a few lower brand names, that while in good condition, are a bit overpriced - so be sure to do your homework and know what they cost in regular stores. I was a bit disappointed in their shoe selections - too many larger size shoes and not enough middle sizes, also ties are all mixed up on the ties racks and prices while inexpensive, tend to be all over the place. It would be nice if they would place all the higher end brand name ties in a specific rack or case separate from the regular or low end brands. My other complaint is that the dressing rooms are a bit tight to change in and none have any mirrors in them - you have to step into the hall to see how things fit. Lastly, the young girl that works there is nice but not really knowledgeable about men's clothes in regards to sizes and brands. Overall, however, I like the store and will continue to go back. Next time I might try to consign some of my older clothes and see how much I can earn.
I came here for my fiance's birthday to have a nice dinner date. I can say right from the get go, things just went downhill. Our hostess that sat us down was not very nice to us at all... she looked at me and my fiance up and down and gave a us a snooty look and showed us to our table. She tossed our menus on the table and left us. As we were sitting, my fiance and I saw that other workers were sitting in the corner have their lunch/dinner break. He and I both understood that everyone needs their break, but no one told anyone that we had been sitting there for about 10 minutes with no one asking what we wanted to drink. Finally I saw our hostess and gave a look showing I was about to leave and she finally told our waiter that we were sitting there. He took our drink order and it took him 15 minutes to even get us our water (Now mind you, they were not busy at all due to it being around 4pm). He then took our food order and brought our salad out within 10 minutes... which wasn't a lot either, nor was there enough breadsticks. Our food took about 15 minutes and then it took 10 minutes for the guy to even notice that my fiance and I were done with our food. He refilled our water once even though it was obvious we were out and then it took him 10-15 minutes to even pick up the bill from us. From this review you can already tell I did not give him a well deserved tip. I personally will not come back to this Olive Garden.
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.
I live in Dallas and I came to Houston to visit my mom and she took me to Baby's 1st Furniture. I had been shopping all over DFW and hadn't found what I wanted. I swear my jaw dropped! The stores are so big! And they have so many cribs and bedding choices on display. Looking through catalogues was not how I wanted to shop for furniture. I loved that at Baby's 1st I could look and touch. There were knowledgable sales people who really wanted to help me and answer my questions. And I wouldn't buy a car seat from anywhere else. When my older boy was ready to move up I came to Houston to shop from Mary, their car seat expert. She even helped me install it - I love her! I bought both of my boy's furniture from Baby's 1st and it's absolutely gorgeous. I have another friend from Dallas who visited Baby's 1st when she was in Houston and she also fell in love and had her furniture shipped to Plano. For the quality and the price she couldn't pass it up. It's a must visit place if you're expecting. But, it's like wedding dress shopping - don't wait until the last minute! You have to order what you want and It can take a while to come in.
Decent food.What did I remember? The olives or I should say the olive plate. They were the best olives I have ever had! How different can they be? The only difference between green olives and black olives is ripeness. Unripe olives are green, whereas fully ripe olives are black. Some are big some are small. Such is life. It has to be how they are cured which in this case seems to be seriously, a warm cinnamon based fluid. Killer! They are so good I'm going by tonight to get take out olives and bring them home and try to pair them with one of my mystery wines in the fridge... The ambience is very nice, warm earth colors mixed with romantic lighting. BUT the music is inappropriate for the restaurant. Kind of like playing "I've got friends in low places" in a 5 star restaurant bad. All the time. How bout Italian music? How novel.. The wine list was impressive. The owner/manager was pretty well informed. Lots of different wines from Italy as well as the standard Calfiornia Whites and Reds.. even a few french. They didn't skimp there. Would I go back? Would they please change the music?
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.
I was sitting behind a friend of mine in a meeting and noticed she had an amazing haircut. I asked and she told me about Diane at Executive Cuts. I made the appointment without even reading her other reviews because I was so impressed with my friend's haircut. She has very long, thick, curlyish, hair and my hair is long, mostly straight and very fine textured. Diane was very friendly and listened to my concerns and was very agreeable in allowing input from me. She started with a wonderful hot conditioning treatment which was very relaxing and was great for my hair. She was very careful and gave me a haircut that was really better than what I have usually gotten in other salons.. Slightly different than what I would normally ask for and it made me feel happier than I have been in a long while with my hair. I enjoyed the "cozy" quality of her salon and her very easy going attitude. She used excellent products and gave me a sample of shampoo to try at home and the conditioner as well. Very nice experience. Happy to recommend her.
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.
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
