I went here with my sister, who is vegan, so I ate off the vegan menu too. I'm not vegan, or even vegetarian, so I don't have a lot of points of comparison but I would say that the meal I had (the Hippie Meatloaf)...More

Glad we had a chance to welcome you and your sister in! While you're not a vegan yourself, it's wonderful the Hippie Meatloaf could really impress. Next time you two are around, I'd love to welcome you back. All the best, Carlos, Manager

From apps to meatloaf (vegan) to a delicious chocolate cake, and great service, overall a good experience. Will be returning soon to try other options.

The food quality was unfortunate. I had a beef burger, and the meat was on par with a fast food restaurant that had left the patty out a while. Atmosphere was nice with outdoor seating. A staff member actually told me that I need to...More

First off, James, I do apologize for how your burger turned out -- that's far from the standard for our beef. I'm also concerned to hear anyone on my staff would have made such comments -- no one should ever feel uneasy dining with us....More

Went here for a Sunday brunch and the buffet was DELISH!!! The ambiance of this restaurant is simply great. The fish tacos were great as was the sweet potato fries. I would definitely visit again when I am in Houston.

Visited for the first time last Sunday. Anytime the temperature is below 80 degrees this is the place to be. I was so impressed by feel and outlook I don't notice how good the food was.

Call in advance for a group that large. May also order off the menu or plan a special menu. It's a lovely setting but 35 seems a lot extra without major preparation.
