    Great place to meet up with friends. We sat outside because the noise level inside can make conversation difficult. The staff could not have been more helpful. We all ordered grilled cheese sandwiches and really enjoyed the one with pears. Relish never disappoints.

    I always enjoy the drinks and appetizers at Relish. I usually eat so many deviled eggs that I end up just splitting a burger with a friend . One of these days I’ll Show restraint and be able to try one of the no -burger entrees.

    Some of the best food in Houston. We had a variety of dishes (artichoke, lamb meatball and beet starters, oysters, lobster ravioli, roast chicken) and all were excellent--not gloppy with too much sauce, but flavorful and properly cooked. Relish has an innovative cocktail menu and some terrific wines. Service is prompt and the space is attractive (if a bit of a live environment). We'll be back

    Dinner during the Astros World Series game 4. Two excellently placed TVs. Quiet most times until a great play happened. Combined ambiance was phenomenal. Had 6 cocktails and were not impressed with 1 of them. In my opinion, the drinks were overpriced though. Can easily get similar drinks elsewhere for cheaper. Food was delicious. Friendly servers but could do with a bit less interruptions (need to read cues from patrons).

    Attentive service at the bar & in the dining area. All staff were very nice. We all ordered the Thursday special & a bit disappointed. Steak was pretty tuff & with the older jaw’s at our table it was a bit of a struggle to finish the plate before the lights were turned off. We enjoyed the dessert & will likely give Relish another try— especially for the restorative Happy Hour.

    I love Relish and go frequently. I met a friend at 11:45 for lunch. At 1:30 the server asked us to leave because he wanted his table for the next reservation. There were at least 10 tables open and spots at the bar. I have never experienced that before. There were 2 tables with men sitting at them that were there before we arrived and they were not asked to leave. Pretty rude and inconsiderate.

    The wait staff here is very good always. Unfortunately, my steak came out pretty rare when I ordered medium well. They did take it off my bill. The noise level on the night we went was off the charts. We could not hear each other at all and it was just the two of us. We have been here several times and the food has always been good so we will come back, just not on a Saturday night!

    The food is delicious but we would really like to see a gluten free menu. There are so many people who have recently been diagnosed with Celiacs, dairy allergies, etc. We have 3 such people in our party. Our waiter was attentive. But we felt that his overall knowledge about food allergies and serious issues was lacking.
