wait staff was so friendly and polite and I really value that as much as I do the food. Nothing spoils a meal more than a rude waitstaff
Eleven of us ate here after the theater on Saturday, June 16th. Even though we had reservations and the restaurant was almost empty, our table was not ready and it took almost 15 minutes for the staff to arrange our seating. It only got worse from there on! We had arrived at 4:15 and even though we were always ready... More
Had dinner there with some business colleagued. We arrived at 8:30 and the place was empty but we enjoyed the quiet. Had crab cakes and snapper which were both excellent. Server very attentive and understanding of special needs in our party. Would return on my next trip to Houston.

I knew I... More
The staff was polite, seemed well trained, the dishes were visually appealing, the seating was pleasant enough but at this price point it pleased but did not make me want a repeat visit. None of us had the steak however and since that makes up the bulk of their menu I would give them another chance. The paella was reported... More
Three visits in two weeks! This restaurant is outstanding! Great atmosphere, service, selection. In Houston for two weeks for business and after my first visit to this establishment I had to go back with international guests and all were very impressed.
at the Samba Grille. Nice parade of meats, fun atmosphere, and great service. Had a sever named Chris T. ,he was just a delight. The wine program alone, makes it worth going . Lesser known wines kept in a shiny contraption lets you take a tour with several stops for the tongue on a modest budget. I was out with... More
