    Service was excellent including the host. Food not so great: I order a breakfast with eggs your way and was pretty disappointed with the exception of the bacon.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving brunch! Not being huge turkey fans it was nice to have so many options. The food was great...shrimp and brisket tostados were standouts. The dessert display was just gorgeous. The servers were very attentive. Nice touch when the Executive Chef came around to check on all the guests.

    The 1600 Bar & Grill is located on the ground floor of the Hilton Americas, which we stay at once a year to attend Comicpalooza. We always eat here for dinner at least once as we enjoy the food and are always delighted to see team members that we recognize from prior trips. Our server, Leticia, although relatively new to this hotel, was absolutely fabulous and made us feel very welcome. She was friendly, attentive, and had a wonderful laugh. She made us feel at home. Kudos to the back of the house for a delicious meal. The grilled vegetables, which we substituted for fries, were outstanding. The burger was excellent and flavorful. After a busy day at Comicpalooza, this was a wonderful way to unwind while enjoying a good meal and a nice bottle of wine. Welcome aboard, Leticia! We hope to see you and your fellow teams members next year when we return. A final shout out to the restaurant manager who leads this outstanding team. You are all a credit to the Hilton family. Cheers!

    I would have given it 5 stars except it didn’t have a carving station in my opinion that’s a big part of having a great holiday brunch buffet. Your servers were polite, courteous and prompt. Pleasant surprise to have mimosas included. Food was good I would go back again

    This was about the worst meal I’ve ever had. Ordered the Reuben panini and it was cold and cheese not even melted. Husband had the burger which he said was fine. Ordered dessert and the ice cream served with sticky toffee pudding was frozen so hard couldn’t even cut it with a knife and fork. Pudding was basically like a piece of cold muffin. It is a shame that an upscale Hilton has such a bad restaurant. Hate to leave such a bad review but for a meal that cost over $80 for two sandwiches and two desserts, felt like it should have been much better. At least the service and setting were good.

    When I was searching for restaurants in the downtown Houston area, I didn't really realize that this one was in the Hilton, so basically it was a hotel restaurant. It ended up being a nice place for lunch while we were exploring the NCAA atmosphere. They had a couple of specials on the board as we walked in and we both got that. Excellent BBQ sandwich. Not sure if I would eat here again on another visit, but it was a good one-time stop.

    This is a nice idea, with a nice menu marred by comically terrible service. I ordered at 6:30 and told the waitress I was in a hurry and had to go to a concert next door at 7:30. At 7:25 my food arrived totally cold. Like, cold cold. They need to start all over.

    We ate brunch there because we wanted to sleep in and not eat till dinner that night. I ordered from the menu but my husband wanted the buffet so he could get an omelet. There was no one there to make omelet! He was very disappointed because the price of the buffet was very high. The service was good. It was just disappointing to not get what was advertised.

    The service and customer appreciation was fantastic. The food had its pluses and minuses but it was a buffet so as for a buffet it was good. But our greatest enjoyment was having the wait staff and front desk staff treat us like appreciated guests. Thank you 1600 Bar & Grille for making my families Breakfast with Santa memorable and very special.

    * Party of two seniors attended Thanksgiving Buffet. Reservation process was easy as the Restaurant, simply, directed any & all to Open Table. * Hotel comped valet parking with Buffet Reservation & provided a generous $10 Senior discount. * We arrived early & Restaurant staff were able to seat us early * Buffet choices were adequate on both the Breakfast & Lunch offerings * Food was excellent * Service was excellent.
