    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.

    We had a great dinner here. Everything was delicious. The grilled artichoke, deviled eggs, and I especially loved the chicken paillard. We will definitely be back.

    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.

    Great food also requires great polite and courteous service. Relish delivers and keeps us coming back and is a showcase for us to take our out of town friends when they come to visit. Thank you Relish, keep up the great work.

    We went for an early brunch (10:00 AM). Our waiter was ok, no urgency though for sure...maybe short staffed. One appetizer came out fairly quickly and was delicious! We waited a good 15 minutes before the second one was brought out, but it was also good (deviled eggs and grilled artichokes). Bloody Mary was blah, mimosas were just okay...just tasted watered down. It took forever for the main dishes to come out...maybe 25-30 minutes. Several of us had chicken and waffles and they were all cold and had to send them back. Another 15 minutes or so went by before we received the hot waffles. By this time, the other people in our party were done eating! The food tasted good...not outstanding, but okay. The kitchen was obviously struggling. Our waiter offered us a cup of coffee for our "troubles?? Then later came back and appropriately discounted the 3 cold and very late dishes. We all said it would be a while before we tried it again.

    We started with the fried pickled okra. Didn’t taste a lot of pickle, but it was good! Then got the lobster ravioli and it was delicious! They don’t skimp on the lobster, which was a bonus!

    We always love Relish when we go, but because it's set a little ways back off of Westheimer, we sometimes forget that it's there. That said, from service, to drinks, to food (and portions), the restaurant always delivers. From the minute I entered the restaurant, I was welcomed at the hostess stand, promptly led to our table, and cared for by our server, Logan. I like the freshness of the cuisine, which is obviously made with great ingredients. We went for Houston Restaurant Weeks and it was fabulous! The melon and burrata app was a highlight, and the strawberry fields salad had my MIL raving. For mains we had the steak frites, the lobster ricotta ravioli (special), and the seared salmon. My husband had an off-menu whole snapper special, which was a highlight of the meal - a gorgeous plate in every way. Dessert was lovely; bourbon carrot cake and sweet cream ice cream. We happened to be there early for HH (daily 11am-5:30pm) so signature cocktails were half off! I had two rounds; a Salty dog and a Lavender sour. The restaurant has a lovely patio which will be nice when the weather cools down a bit. It's also very family friendly and there's free parking if you get there early enough, all good things!

    Dining at Relish is always an enjoyable experience. Our server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the food and beverage ingredients. We appreciated being able to partake in both the happy hour and regular dinner options and ended up ordering dessert espresso martinis as a result. Thank you for providing a dining experience worth paying for!

    We have eaten at Relish about 6 to 8 times. In the past the food was always very good. Last night I ordered the ribs. They were dry and tough and generally not very good. My wife had the lobster ravioli which she finished. However, she thought the lobster was frozen not fresh. We will go back again, but will stick with items we already know.
