    The food was okay. The service was slow when needed and we were also rushed when the server would approach us. I don’t like being rushed through my brunch by a server who takes 10 minutes to bring a bottle of Tobasco (I ended up grabbing it myself from the bar). I wasn’t even offered a second drink before she brought up one of those awkward card swiping devices. It’s also extremely loud, and hard to have a conversation for Sunday brunch. I can’t say I will be back.

    We were hoping to try the restaurant weeks menu, but we’re having lunch on the weekend. Upon arriving we were informed that it was brunch, and ordered off that menu instead. The Cesar salad and the superfood bowl were delicious! Our waitress was sweet, but my water was constantly empty. The lady at the front (I’ve nicknamed her Blonde Ambition because she was just bringing that vibe) seemed disaffected and uninterested in us as we were walking out the door and a waiter accidentally dropped some plates which resulted in ketchup getting all over my friend - her hair, front of shirt and back of shirt (I was relatively unscathed) and one other person joined in to help him while he got soda water and helped her with the ketchup stains (my stains have not yet come out of my top). It was a nice apology, but I expected management to come in and represent, and they didn’t.

    We were very disappointed in the food. Both our appetizer and entrees were very bland. We expected a lot more for the price. Would not recommend and will not visit again.

    Reservation was for 7:45pm. The first thing I noticed within five minutes of entering was the restaurant noise level seemed unusually loud, even for a Saturday night. Arrived a bit early and sat at the bar until our table was ready. In hindsight, perhaps we should have remained there. Hostess notified us the table was ready and we were supplied with menus, silverware and empty water glasses. A girl came by and filled our water glasses. Didn’t say a word to us (no greeting, etc). We see a waiter in the area and he had approached every table but ours (table on our left, table on our right, the one behind us, etc). My friend jokes that perhaps he’s assigned every other table, who knows. Haven’t seen my friend in a while so we’re catching up on things. We notice that it’s now 8:15 and no one has greeted us, our drinks need refreshing (both water and the ones ordered from the bar) and yet we still haven’t been greeted. Far as I could decipher the only observant person in the restaurant this evening was the bartender, same one who made our drinks. This man actually walked over from the bar to our table to check on us. He was shocked to learn that no one had waited on us after all the time had passed. We requested our check for the only item we did get….the drinks from the bar. The bartender didn’t bring our check, I will point out that he tried to make things right by comping our drinks. We left nearly an hour after our scheduled reservation with no food. Although I can't tell you how the food tastes (based on some of the reviews I’ve read maybe we dodged a bullet), I can say that this restaurant needs to work on its customer service skills. I was actually scouting out a few restaurants for an event we are putting together next month. Eloise Nichols was on our radar but based on last night they’ve just removed themselves from the running. If they cannot properly accommodate a table of just two folks, how can I trust them with a group of diners?

    Went Saturday for date night and can not recommend it. The restaurant had awful acoustics making it very loud and hard to hear each other. My boyfriend had to move next to me instead of across from me. Generally the atmosphere was very stressed. We ordered the Houston restaurant week menu but they were out of the dessert we wanted. They were also out of the beer my boyfriend wanted. The waiter didn’t fill up water and we still had our empty dirty plates when our second course was served. I had to ask the waiter to remove our dirty first course plates. For our second course the waiter forgot the steak knives and didn’t come with our wine matched for the second course until 5 min after we had the food. We ordered steak (medium) but my boyfriends steak was well done and completely grey so we had to send it back and wait for his food to eat together. Only good thing was he taste of our first course. Would not come back - mainly because of the service. The waiter never apologized and could at least have given a glass of wine on the house for the trouble.

    Food was very good. We sampled a few starters and especially liked the shishito peppers and tuna poke. Also, the penne with shrimp was very tasty. Very nice selection of wines. We prefer dry reds and enjoyed all that we had. Service was excellent. Our waitperson was attentive and very friendly. We will definitely return.

    We enjoyed a delicious meal of the Houston Restaurants Weeks offerings. The Brussels sprouts are to die for and the salmon with risotto was absolutely delicious. This neighborhood eatery has delightfully tasty food and it was fun to support the Houston Food Bank in a small way. Highly recommend.

    My experience was great as usual. The only thing that was a little different today was the steel oatmeal and coffee tasted different. The oatmeal was a little mushy and the coffee flavor was not as robust. The service was fantastic, as always. The ambience is always great because the noise level allows me the space to think and do work or to enjoy a little soft music. Overall Eloise Nichols is a great place to dine. I will be returning.
