Description: The Short version. Joe and I (Maria) moved to Houston in February of 2012. After a long weekend visit which we spent in The Woodlands in January of 2012, we decided to make a move, very spur of the moment. After returning from our visit, it only took a few days to decide to move. Eight days later, Joe packed his car armed with his chef knives, coats and bare necessities looking forward to a 3 day journey to Texas. We came down with no family ties, but with our families, no distance can keep us apart. So with their blessing, we were determined to make it work, and we did. I met Joe down here a month later with our dogs and a few belongings. Joe worked downtown as executive chef with the Mandola family on West Dallas Street, Up Restaurant in Highland Village and finally at Mo's "A Place for Steak" in The Galleria. The Rest, come in and we will tell ya!

Great great place to go for a meal! The menu varies (daily?) I think. The restaurant is a house, basically, and very cozy. Not a ton of seating, but the food is worth it. We had lobster mac&cheese that was one of the best meals I've had. Can't wait to go back. When you're done, you're in Old Town Spring, so save some time for shopping or window browsing since there are some neat stores around.

This was my first time here for brunch. A hidden gem, for sure! I was meeting a good friend from college two weekends ago (and was in the area for a friend's wedding), so we decided on this place. I am glad we did. Had the shrimp ceviche and blue corn tortilla chips with a tall glass of unsweetened iced tea. Sweet people running the establishment. Phenomenal food - great atmosphere. Will definitely return! =)

We were there for lunch and sat outside. The food is fresh and interesting. Service that day was a little scattered but they seemed to be short a person. We really enjoyed our meals and plan to go back to try the dinner menu.

Since our last dinner several months ago, food quality had gone from exceptional to good, prices way too high even if address was Market Place Woodlands, and service was average (not a good statement for two tables with diners). Very disappointed.

This is a hidden gem in Old Town Spring. The food is delicious, and well presented. The service was excellent as well. I will definitely go back again.
