Lovely restaurant serving American/Italian fare, wide range of fish and meat dishes, with a good wine menu. The waiters are extremely nice and helpful. They really care about making your dining experience enjoyable and are not your average high school or college kid making a buck, they are either the owners or professionals. I particularly love the view from the dining room (or from the terrace) because it overlooks a small marina. Some people come in by boat! Most Houston restaurants overlook an ugly parking lot, not this one! Perfect restaurant for a romantic evening. The terrace must be great during the cooler months (October to April). On the Saturday night we went, most of the crowd was in their 50' or older, but there were a few younger couples. Only downside: a touch noisy because of the reflecting walls, maybe adding some drapes or carpet would help.
Reservations recommended.

Favorite Dish: Appetizers: I loved my crab salad that had mangoes, tomatoes, and basil, and was fresh and delicious. My husband loved the crab cakes.
Main dish: My veal New Orleans was delicious, and my husband enjoyed his steak very much.
Wine: I recommend the Goldschmidt California Cabernet Sauvignon.
