    My food was not up to standards per usual my greens were nothing but stems and my oxtail (meaning one) was very tough and my drinks at the bar at the Bistro were nothing compared to the Red Room. The drinks over there on point for sure I also purchased a hookah the gentleman over those was very rude the usual DJ was not there and it showed People were leaving so if this helps PLEASE bring him back once he left the ambiance was GONE‼️

    The first visit to the Upper Kirby Bistro was a delightful experience for both my guest and me. Our server, Shannon, was incredibly attentive and made excellent recommendations. The chef even surprised us with a complimentary taste of their freshly baked jalapeno muffin, which was a delightful and unexpected treat. Every aspect of our visit was superb, from the ambiance to the service and, of course, the food. This establishment has undoubtedly secured a place on my list of preferred dining spots. I extend my heartfelt thanks to Shannon for elevating our experience and making it truly memorable.

    I really enjoyed my experience here! It was my first time visiting Houston for my birthday and I was recommended this restaurant to try out. I came at a slower part of the day, but that didn’t discredit the food, service, or vibe. My guest and I enjoyed a delicious meal with tasty mimosas (I got all 5 flavors), had a very attentive and pleasant waitress (I forgot her name but she was short with red hair), and we were able to vibe out while eating because of the music being plaid. I thanked the friend the told me about this place immediately. This is definitely a spot to return to on my next Houston visit!

    We went here for Valentine’s Day. Intially the valentines special was $175. What they didnt say is you only get one appetizer. We got the oxtail empanadas. Terrible. The shell was dry and lacked seasoning and the oxtails were not seasoned at all. So all it was, was shell unseasoned oxtail and grease. The entries we got was the fried snapper and ribeye steak. The snapper wasn’t bad I’ll give it a 7/10 I’ve had better and the ribeye was not cold but definitely not hot. 6/10. Finally we ended with the red velvet cake it was pretty good. The best thing about it the place was the drinks and the vibe. The food needs a lot of work which is why it was only 6 couples on one of the most popular nights of the year.
