“After dinner spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Enjoyed the music, though it was not the jazz I'd hoped for. We had a relaxing time listening to the band and watching the crowd. The staff was very friendly and provided attentive service. Will recommend this place to anyone just wanting to chill.

“Expensive, small food. Generally good atmosphere. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We have come several times and have generally been well taken care of and food has been satisfactory. Ordered the fried oysters, tomato & motz and dinner order of scallops. 3 sea scallops showed up. This sad delivery cost $24. Never again, this place charges gormet prices for tiny portions and average quality. The waitress was ok but not friendly.

“Excellent jazz atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Went here for a private party and was amazed by the space, the food, and the entertainment. If the servers could keep pace with the quality of every thing else them it would be in the top 5 restaurants in Houston.

“Great Food and Music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Sambuca is a great place to enjoy drinks, great food, and live music. The atmosphere is great in the restaurant. The food and drinks are great. The volume of the music is perfect which allows you to enjoy the people you are with and the music. And if you're so inclined-you can even dance on the small dance floor.
