    It was a very average breakfast. The food was okay, but lacked flavor and seasoning on their eggs and potatoes. The bread they used for the French toast was not soft, and not because they cooked it too long. It just wasn't good. My friend got the eggs benedict and also said it was not good. There were huge chucks of pork that didn't blend in with the rest of the plate. I wouldn't recommend going there since there are so many tastier places in Houston to eat.

    Service could definitely use some improvement. We waited approximately 10 minutes before finally getting someone’s attention to place our drink order. Thereafter we had to get the attention of the young lady who turned out to be our server to have our drinks brought over and to place our food order. The food and drinks were exceptional.

    Our waiter was inattentive and rude. He seemed to be rushing us off the table, but we were still ordering cocktails. The manager tried to rectify his behavior but I doubt we will be returning.

    We have eaten here for years and it has always been very good. The last time was lacking due to our server. She was just not very attentive. We had to keep asking for items and she was always forgetting something. She could not answer any questions about the menu. It was not that busy. My guess was she was new. Overall one of our favorite places. We will be back and try it again.

    This place was really good except for a couple of hiccups. The chocolate cake wasn't good at all. Chocolate sauce was boring/not warm. Cake itself dry not very good. Salad with tuna not bad. Tuna overdone. Salad small for price point. Meat pizza awesome. Baguette wonderful. Whiskey sour with wine unique. Very dry - wouldn't order again but glad I tried it once.

    Pace of service a little bit fast. We didn’t ask enough questions about the menu - appetizer meatballs are extremely spicy and we were taken by surprise! Food was artfully presented and very tasty - lamb a bit undercooked for expressed preference and sweet potatoes lacked flavor - but overall, delicious. Get the carrot pizza!! We enjoyed it very much - highly recommend!

    My husband and I went to Weight & Measure for a late lunch. We both ordered from the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. I started with the capresee salad which was good. My husband ordered the crab cakes and when they say small, they mean it. The 2 crab cakes were 1 bite each and they had almost no sauce with them. For my entree, I ordered the magi mahi-mahi which was overcooked and extremely dry. There was no sauce at all on the fish. My husband ordered the pork chop and he enjoyed it. My dessert was the bread pudding and he got the “special” bar. The bar was supposed to be served with vanilla ice cream but came with chocolate ice cream which my husband doesn’t care for. My bread pudding was very dry. I think this place needs to learn how to prepare sauces to compliment their dishes. The service was so so. We were the only ones in the restaurant during the last half of our meal yet no ever ask if we were ok or needed anything. I had planned to take a group of ladies there for lunch, but we will certainly find a friendlier place.

    I went for a Houston restaurant week but in it virtually didn’t check to make sure they served the particular menu on the weekend. They also didn’t have anything for birthday celebrations.. I don’t think either one of these issues were their fault however they could’ve been a little bit more accommodating.

    We had never been to Weights and Measures before. We went for HRW. First thing, they didn’t have one of the items I went for. Our bisque was lukewarm. Our server never came by to check on us so I could get it warmed. My entree was good but my husband’s was just ok. Service was very lackluster except for the sweet lady who took our plates.

    First time at Weights and Measure. I had the Fried Chicken on French Toast. That chicken was fried to perfection. Seems like it is brined and marinated in buttermilk. Seasoned well and crispy. The atmosphere and service was great as well. Will definitely return very soon.

    The "restaurant week (month)" $25 menu was outstanding. I had mini crab cakes, broiled pork chop with mashed potatoes & green beans, Mom's magic chewy bar with ice cream. At these prices, my birthday guest & I split a $48 bottle of rose bubbly. Devine!

    Menu and food pairings are a bit unappetizing, no ability (per the waitress) to substitute any items on the menu. Overall, the breakfast is great but avoid for dinner - far better places and food choices for the the same price-point.

    Our group is notorious for running late, but some how on this trip we were early. When we arrived to the restaurant they were able to seat us earlier than reserved and the service was phenomenal. The Happy Hour selection is incredible. We ordered the chips with blue cheese and they were gone in minutes; we almost ordered a second round.

    I have very rarely been as disappointed by a Houston restaurant as I was leaving Weights and Measures! The service was ok (not stellar but not bad) but the food was bland and poorly seasoned across the board with the one exception of the pancakes, which were quite tasty. The drinks were very good as well, but the food was notably bad. Weights and Measures should stick with baking!
