"There are few restaurants in Houston with a view at this height of the city. The food is not bad, the service is very good, and the ambiance is good. Unfortunately they only serve on weekdays during lunch hours.
They have a patio that allows you to roam outside to get fresh air from the 43rd floor of the wedge tower.
Parking can be done at the parking lot right next to the wedge tower. They offer validated parking so you do not have to worry about it.
Overall I enjoyed this place and if I ever get a weekday off, I would not mind going here again."

"This was my first time dining at the 43rd and the view and the food was great. The gumbo is delicious as was the shrimp salad. We also got a semi-private table between the board room and main dinning area which was perfect for our group."
