Crisp - Heights Ratings and Reviews

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 ...
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!

Good food and a fun place to eat. Parking is a problem. And I was disappointed that there was not a veg option on the Houston Restaurant Weeks choices. I purchased from the regular menu (and the food was great - they have good vegan options) and saved money but would have liked to have participated, along with my daughter, in the special occasion.

The appetizers were great but we were a bit disappointed with the entree as it did not indicate that the sirloin would be ground and stuffed with blue cheese... We thought it would be sliced in the middle and stuffed. It was still a decent tasting dish, we just wished it would have specified on the menu that it was ground.
The dessert with lemon and blueberry preserves was also a letdown. The preserves were way too thick (it was a thick hardened glob of blueberry pudding).
We will probably be returning but we won't ever try the restaurant week menu again as I dont feel that it is a very good example of their food.

Went at 11 Sunday AM. Food was interesting, not the usualbrunch fare. Decent covered outdoor dining area. Parking lot almost completely valet on weekends, so if you have "valet issues" for whatever reason, prepare for a walk of up to 3 blocks. Service was iffy, despite being only a third full at arrival time. Drink orders for subsequently arriving group members, plus menus, place settings, etc., hard to secure. Like server only wanted to deal with the first 2 people at table for 6. Ambivalent about returning. Maybe if the company was good, and they insisted going there for some reason.

Everything is fantastic EXCEPT their lazy valet. They sit there looking at you instead of opening your door. They watch every step a woman takes to get to the other side and just stand there watching. This is Texas. Step it up.

Great menu overall…we were a party of four so tried several starters & everything was good especially the pork belly with sweet corn polenta! YUM!
We tried a couple of pizzas..huge portions but very good. Our server was new but took good care of us…wine was served really cold which it needed to be & the service was better than we expected.
Had no idea this place had been over for 3 plus years…a true find for good food & out with friends!

My family and I were planing on going to Crisp for dinner on July 2nd but after realizing there were no open reservations we opted for Sunday morning brunch. We arrived at 10:30 (30 minutes after opening) and we were the only ones in the restaurant. All the staff was super friendly and attentive and even as the restaurant quickly filled we never felt like we were forgotten about. We ordered three of the different brunch entrees and they were all phenomenal! As we were leaving everyone kept saying how we can't wait to come back and try the other entrees.

Food was great for a group of us to get together and celebrate a friend's birthday. I was glad that there were a couple of options for my vegan friend. The service wasn't as it has been in the past. We appeared to be somewhat invisible to the wait staff.

We were at Crisp for Father's Day brunch. First time there for everyone. What a great experience. Everyone's food was outstanding. The facility, despite being mostly full, was still fairly quiet - actual sound insulation in a Houston restaurant! What a concept!
Service was outstanding, and the entire check for four people, including Mimosas, was less than $60.
I just wish I had found this place sooner. Highly recommended.

Food was wonderful. Unfortunately we were sat next to a loud table even though there was hardly anyone else in the restaurant as we ate rather early. It would have been too obvious if we asked to move--I don't think waiter should have sat us there in the first place.
Great birthday celebration!
We celebrated two birthdays, one of which was our son's 21st! The beer selection is awesome, so he jumped right in. Our server was great, and worked with our sometimes undecidedness! We enjoyed the food and the drink which made our celebration all the more special.
