I've gone to Crisp before, but it was for takeout for a pizza (which was really good). This time I was able to sit down with friends and enjoy great conversations, on top of the food and wine! From the time I walked into the restaurant and from the time I left, the staff was wonderful! The bartender (cannot recall her name) was absolutely amazing and very accommodating! Of course, the food was delicious, but I truly loved the red sangria and that I could take home wine! Definitely a restaurant I will frequent more often!!

First timer to Crisp in The Heights. New to the neighborhood not long ago and spotted this place while walking about. Went for a date night and sat on their patio out back. The patio is huge and decorated very nicely. It has a water feature, a large covered table that seats up to 10 guest. Multiple TV's to watch the latest sports on. Great wine selection and great food. Our waiter was very professional and attentive to our needs. He made great recommendations from the wine and appetizers to the main course of our meal. All which paired perfectly together. They have complementary valet for patrons and there's plenty of parking in the parking lot as well as street parking. I will definitely be coming back very soon!

Cons: Our table was by the door, so it was quite chilly. This was disappointing given I made a reservation...hoped for a better table. We never took our coats off. No cocktails, and limited selection (2) of white wines by the glass.
Pros: Pork belly appetizer was yummy, and the scallops in the surf and turf entree were cooked perfectly.

We had a superior waiter by the name of Jason who helped guide our choices on the menu and kept a watchful eye on us during the meal without being intrusive. We shared the truffle fries and the crispo app to start and then we had the duck leg salad, Lito's gyro and the Surf & Turf Risotto. All excellent! And then we proceeded to each have a dessert. Death by Brownie and the fruit crisp were really good and the bread pudding was the only disappointment. We dined here years ago but we won't wait as long to come back. Definitely worth several repeat visits.

Arrived promptly for early evening reservation and were seated for 15 minutes before demanding that a member of waitstaff stop milling around and take our order. The restaurant was 3/4 empty and fully staffed but no one was interested in serving. Once served our salads, the entrees arrived literally 60 seconds later.
The food is mediocre in taste and grossly oversized. It would be much more marketable by removing half the volume and pricing 25% lower. A side salad "D-B-G & Greens" was well conceived but sized as an entree with a duck leg rivaling a turkey drumstick except overcooked and impossible to tear down without a steak knife. The entrees were soupy with limpid pasta.

First time there, found in internet., met another ciuple, had beer and wine, 2 appetizers and pizza. Pizza was okay. Crust could have been cooked more for my taste, undertone. Other than that l8bed the pkace, will still come back again. Loved the wine enomatic.

A nice, relaxed experience for dinner on NYE. Live music was nice. Unfortunately, they had already run out of the dinner special for the night. Wine was good as usual. Love the cheese board with salami added every time we visit. Waiter must have been new since he was not as familiar with the food options as other waiters in the past.

It was five girls drinking a lot of wine at a monthly "Girls' Dinner." God bless him, our server, Nelson, was fantastically patient and helpful. And the food was great! San Fran pizza was delicious fresh, and great reheated at home. Small side salad made a perfect accompaniment. The gyro had lots of well-seasoned meat. I didn't try the fondue our table ordered, but everyone really seemed to enjoy it! We went on a Tuesday at happy hour, and our bill was very reasonable.

Went to Crisp on Sunday for brunch. We sat on the patio and enjoyed and wonderful meal. A carafe of Poinsettias and a Bloody Mary were on point. Excellent service. My friend and I had the frittata and another friend had the pancakes. All were great. Will definitely go back.

We had a great time and a great meal at Crisp. Our waiter was on top of things, and helpful. We were all really pleased with our orders. I had the shrimp and polenta appetizer for my meal and it was really delicious. The others had the short ribs and loved them too.

I was more impressed with the patio than anything else. Service was so so, food was good though.
My wine options was something I would go back and find in the store to buy, so that was a bonus.
Overall - would certainly return.

The restaurant has a feel of a neighborhood bar and grill. The food is different enough to be interesting but because it is family friendly is exactly why it is not a great place to go for serious conversation and food and drink.

We had the Houston Restaurant week menu and the wine pairings were spot-on. We did have a slight issue with one of the entrees, but upon hearing about it, our waiter brought out the chef and we were able to give him our opinion. He offered to cook another for us, but it wasn't necessary. Oh, and the desserts were great! We had the lemon panna coat--really delicious. They ended up crediting some of our meal and giving us a complimentary glass of wine. Excellent customer service from beginning to end. We would go back for the regular menu and for the large beer selection.

A thorough disappointment. We thought we'd try it for Houston Restaurants Week as we explore the many restaurants in The Heights. CRISP seems to promote itself as a serious gastropub but it was just another sports bar with fancy sounding but disappointing food. The fried ravioli were bland and a little undercooked. The balsamic on the caprese just wasn't good. The sauce for the quail just tasted like flour and water. The Wagu stuffed sirloin au bleu was just an overcooked blue cheese Salisbury steak. The yummy-sounding "Tiramisu Chocolate Cannoli" was thick, bland and less than I'd expect from the frozen food department at Sam's. Service was forgettable. Either get the product up to the promise or drop the pretense and just serve up some decent dishes from Sysco.

Made a reservation for dinner during HRW....the parking lot was packed but there was valet and later found it was complimentary...already a plus.....ordered from the menu and everything was so delicious and fresh...enjoyed the scallops and the fried quail with the lemon panna cote for dessert...enjoyed our meal so much that we went back the next day for lunch and had the truffle shuffle pizza which is soooo good and the lamb pizza as well as the chicken pot pie...will be going back soon and already told friends about the great choices on HRW menu,

This is a good neighborhood restaurant offering a variety of chef inspired fresh food. The selection of beer, wine and cocktails is really nice. The noise level inside is too much if you are trying to enjoy a conversation with friends over a good dinner.

We came here for HRW and their menu was phenomenal! I had the fried ravioli, chicken fried quail, and cannoli for dessert. The quail dos not disappoint and the portion sizes were good! The ambience was nice and our server was very attentive. Will definitely come back!
