“Awful”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

The service was slow. By slow I mean we were here for thirty minutes and finally got our salads. Then 10 more for our bread. The waiter was slow and didn't know anything. This couple next to us got food before us even though we've been here a good 20 minutes before them. And they won't stop looking at us. Foods adequate. I hate Houston. Sucks to suck.

“The best service ever at a Red Lobster...290 Hwy. Table 61 "R Avanti" does it very well.!”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

We have not been to this restaurant in many months. Today, we got










We have not been to this place for many months. Today, the front desk people were fast but did not say "thank you" when we left but the server was the best ever and made our day..! Table 61
"R Avanti" was THE MOST PROFESSIONAL wait staff we have had here. Quick, precise, detailed and courteous.... He should be giving lessons to everyone ! We came for lunch but we will come back for dinner again and again if others are trained to be as good.

I counted 6 "thank yous" as we left, but none from the front desk. A great meal overall and thus we tipped 27% and felt it should have been more.

“Good Stuff!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 via mobile

Place was hopping but we were seated immediately. Waitress was very friendly and professional. Atmosphere was just fine for our relaxed dinner. Cheese biscuits as good as it gets. Ranch dressing was super fresh and yummy on salad. Ordered Admirals Feast and it was delicious. I give em 3 out of 5 forks. Check em out!

“Spot On Service, and Well Prepared”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We are in Houston on extended business, and hit this venue after a long day of travel. We were seated and greeted promptly, had all questions answered completely, and a great experience.

We had seafood entrees with different salads as starters. All, well done and well presented. Lorenzo was our server, and was attentive, informative and cheerful; high marks.

There are a lot of choices on this stretch of highway, this one is worth your time to stop in.

“The WORST!!!!”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

First they set us under a vent so by the time we ate our food it was cold. Rude staff. Cesar Salad was soggy, beans in our dish were burnt.
