    Servers were slammed and we waited >45 min for order. Yes, it was busy, but a professional establishment will handle it and not use as an excuse. On a food note, french fries used to be good but are now fat and mushy.

    Once again the food was great. We have tried different entrees every time we come and have never been disappointed. The shrimp pasta, just the right amount of cajun, and the turkey panini were so yummy! Can't wait to see what you'll serve next!!

    We didn’t get the chance to actually sit down and eat. We were 15-20 minutes late for our reservation. We called to tell them we were stuck in traffic. Arrived and they could only work us in. A couple left and they still didn’t budge and give us their table. We left.

    I made a reservation and it was confirmed with an email. We had 7 in our party and we had a timeline. We left plenty of time. BUT, we arrived to find they don't take reservations! They did not have a table that sits 7! They did not put two table together to make a table of 7. We took two tables at two very different heights in order to make the show on time. There was 1 waitress that appeared to have worked there 30 minutes. We had to ask for menus. We had to ask her to take our order. 20 minutes later we asked for our drinks to be served. 2 minutes after our wine was served the food arrived. The food was good but unfortunately, that is the only thing this restaurant had going for it. We then had to ask for our bills and when no one returned with them we had to hunt them down so we could get out of the restaurant and to the show. I cannot recommend this experience to anyone.

    This is a nice restaurant on the campus of the University of Houston. We went for lunch as we were on campus for a conference. Overall it was a good experience. When we first arrived they sat us at a tall table and one of our party was not able to get onto the high chair due to physical limitations. They were able to move us but it was to a table right by the kitchen. The service was adequate and the food was good. I would definitely eat there again if I find myself at UH. It is certainly a welcome respite from the more student centered food found elsewhere on campus. It is a little pricy, but not excessively so.

    I always enjoy going to Eric's for lunch with colleagues. The menu has been pared down recently, but there are still a lot of good choices and the food is uniformly good. The service is very good, and it's easy to make reservations on line or over the phone.

    Top ten worst service in Houston says it all. Waited 30 minutes, no waiter. Called from my cell phone to the hostess desk to tell them I need to order my food and drink. Told them how I wanted my salmon cooked, I received it after some more waiting completely overcooked and sent it back for redo. Once I received my food and meal was over, I had to wait another 20 minutes to flag someone down to ask for a refill on my drink and my check. Waited another 25 minutes and waiter did not even come back. I had to call again and this time the bar staff picked up the phone. Had to tell them I’m in their restaurant for them to bring my check and refill my drink. Zero stars.

    I think the evening menu is new because my husband and I had entrees we had never tried before. I was amazed by the Posti and had to look it up on the internet. The pastry that it was served with was wonderful and I have bragged to all of my lunch friends about how good it was. The egg on top was the kicker! My husband at the WHOLE Cougar burger and I loved his French fries. Well done!
