Bistro Lancaster @The Lancaster Hotel

Local favorite, The Bistro Lancaster is ideal for a power breakfast, business lunch or social evening. Sophisticated and intimate, the Bistro allows for highly attentive personal service in a cozy setting. Feast on the sumptuous regional Contemporary American Bistro cuisine from our delicious Crab Cakes to our signature warm croissant bread pudding accented with brandied cherries, fig confit and caramel sauce. Now serving USDA Prime Filets and Ribeyes.
Located in the heart of Houston's theater and financial district; it is an easy walk to all live performances downtown.

"Good about getting people in and out for 7 or 8pm Curtain. Good food, service and ambiance.
Only wrinkle this time was that I made the reservation but the waiter allowed our guests to pay for the meal. That should NEVER happen unless the host agrees. It was awkward for us but didn't want to make a scene. I did tell the waiter that dinner was OUR reservation and that we wanted to prevail. He acted fairly coy about that. Didn't appreciate."

"Food is consistently good. Very well prepared and presented. Service was a little off this evening, but is usually quite good. It was busy, as it was opening night at the Opera. The pace of the meal was excellent for pre-opera or theater going. Crab cakes and spinach salad were excellent!"

"I ate there on a Saturday night with a date. The food is excellent and so was the service. It's a very small place with a limited amount of tables. It was a little loud but not too bad. The problem is that if you are a party of 2 expect to be seated at a very small table crammed right up against another couple who can hear every word you say unless you talk very quietly which is hard to do if the restaurant is full. It's a beautiful restaurant with superb food but if you want a romantic date, I would recommend going there on a weekday night."

"Crowded ( of course). Waiter was mostly attentive but had a numbe r of arrivals and departures at same time. (Theater). No problem with being on time for the show.
Food very good, not great, but priced for great. Wine selection by the glass doesn't match the menu; the food deserves better wine by the glass. Bottle selection is ok, but does no good for the theater crowd; can't take it with you.
Based on reviews, no one in the theater district really wants to step up and be the 5 star choice. Perhaps no one has to. Everyone is crowded every night.
Probably your best choice if your wallet
doesn't get heartburn.

"Located in the Theater District
Always good food and service, we like this restaurant before theater activities.

"This is a great location for a date prior to going to a show in downtown Houston. The crab cakes are excellent. It is a bit noisy when full."

"Very warm and inviting staff makes the experience great. The biggest problem we had was selecting our entrée. Several items were very appealing - and experience has shown us that preparation is great. This was the start of a very delightful evening."

"Cozy spot, perfect for a romantic dinner before seeing A Christmas Carol across the street at the Alley. Food and wine were excellent, but it's always the gracious service that keeps me coming back here."
