    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.

    Sunday brunch 5 of us. I had the apple salad with avocado and chicken and my wife had huevos rancheros, both very good. Someone else had baked eggs. I didn't taste, but they didn't look special.

    We loved Logan, our server, so eager to serve his customers. We loved our meal and so happy that dessert options have expanded. The appetizer options really do need to change, very limiting. The new blueberry lemon curd turnovers were the best. WOW. And I loved my shrimp linguine and of course, my Austin Hope.

    We have been wanting to try this place for a while. Love the decor and ambiance of the resterant. The service was very good. The deviled eggs were my favorite! I would say the best I’ve ever had. The other entrees were ok. I had the turkey melt and my husband had the chicken paillard. The paillard was a little too thin and lacked some flavor. The turkey melt had way too much bacon (for my taste) but, overall it was good. Really liked the chicken tortilla soup. We will definitely go back again! There are so many other things on the menu that we want to try!!!

    Relish hit the spot. It was my first visit there and we had the Southern Fried Okra as an appetizer. Very light and not greasy. Just the right amount of salt. We had pasta entrees and they were great. For dessert we had carrot cake and it was good. A plus was the valet parking. We will be back!!

    We felt like we were bothering the bartenders. They were not the same bartenders we see in the evening or late afternoon. The food was just okay and it normally is much better. Honestly, my friend and I were very disappointed. We ordered the charcuterie board as a third entree and it was lame. Not impressed. The $16 glasses of wine we had were good. Thank you

    The food is always excellent here. We have been here several times and the food tonight was also great. We had the beef and blue and redfish. Our service was attentive but not overly so. The manager here is excellent. He always stops by to make sure everything is great. My only caveat is that we were seated in a booth right next to where the waiters logged in food items-we could hear everything they said and they could hear everything we said. We’ll make sure not to sit there next time but I found it curious that a register was placed so close to a table.

    Food and service was wonderful but the two women who sat next to me were absolutely rude! They reprimanded my daughter directly and then went on to use the f word multiple times loudly. It was so sad because I love the restaurant.
