Amazing view and experience
The Spindletop employees were all very kind. We were running late and they offered to push back our reservation. The food was amazing and the view was to die for.

The spindletop is a great choice for a date or special occasion but not for Mothers Day! The menu was mediocre at best and had no variations. All in all, the Mothers Day brunch was a tab bit overrated but I would definitely go again. The view is ablsoluty the best!

This is an amazing place to eat. The wine menu very wide variety to choose from and they food speaks for it's self. Overall fantastic place to eat and beautiful view of the city.
Great view until $7 for instant potatoes?
Dessert come complimentary for special occasion. Seafood pot would have been better fit at a low-end joint somewhere on a bayou in Louisiana not an upscale restaurant. Cocktails are a bit expensive but they taste great! Let's just say I've had more uplifting servers at lower end restaurants... They sell plenty of seafood but our server said he didn't eat seafood so he couldn't recommend anything... Not fit for restauranteurs. But overall the place has redeemable qualities only because of the scenic view ( I recommend going right at sun set ). Wouldn't go again. But fun for a one time thing...
Appetizers was excellent. We had this avocado and crab plate. I had the lamb and my wife had the beef. Both meals were disappointing. We got a free desert tray for our anniversary which was very appreciated. It was really good. It is very fascinating to see the city but a lot is blocked off by older buildings.
Definitely not your every day food. Dined with my family for my daughter's 17th birthday. The kids were open to trying new dishes and said the flavors were like a "taste explosion" in their mouths. It was a beautiful evening.
Romantic and Elegant
I stayed at the Hyatt Regency hotel with my girlfriend and the Spindletop restaurant is a part of the hotel. This was my second time going to the restaurant. The views were great and we spun three laps around the city during our stay.

We felt like the waitress judged us. She only stopped by to check on us about 4 times that's including the times she had to bring our food. She stopped by about 10 times 2 tables down ours.

I feel as if our service was a bit rushed; our reservation was at 9:15 so maybe that's why. I do feel like the server could've interacted with us a bit more and for the price the food is good but not great. The seafood Mac and cheese is definitely something you should try. The drinks tasted like just juice... It is very romantic and intimate for a cute date.

Great service, staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food was only fair - the higher the restaurant is above street level, the less likely the food is to be outstanding.

A WONDERFUL LOVELY TIME!
Had a very lovely time, from beginning to end. The staff was very attentive to us, (Lois and Ricardo). We had a beautiful sunset view. The food was present very well and tasted great. I ordered the polenta ravioli, (melted in my mouth), and my friend ordered the steak and was cooked almost to perfection. We saw a couple get engaged, very romantic. I look forward to coming back here.
The place was very nice and quiet. Great view of downtown, but the food was nasty and poor selection.

The Seafood platter for two was astonishing! However, $5 for one side of rice is ridiculous. Rice should automatically come with the dish at that price. Other than that, I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or big money meetings. Excellent service!
This is a good place for a special occasion. The food is alright, but you mainly come here for the view. Its a nice way to see Houston downtown. The service was excellent
Fantastic!! Celebrated my Moms 80th and everyone was wonderful!!
Monthly night out
The scenery was awesome!! My waiter was superb!! The only issue was the food my entree in particular. It was not horrible but I've had better. Other than that I'd give them two thumbs up.
The view was spectacular. Unfortunately at night the glare of the lights inside hamper the beautiful view. It was amazing to see how fast everything was served. No waiting time extremely pleasant staff
Excellent view, good service. Scallops and salad were excellent, but the filet was alright. I definitely will get something else next time, but the dinner overall was a huge hit with the wife.
We went for Easter Sunday lunch. The food was great and so was the service. The view was of course fantastic! I would recommend this restaurant for any special dinner!
Best place ever!
If you have any friends from out of town that you would like to impress take them here!
Beautiful place. Atmosphere is very nice. Food is a bit average, the ambiance makes that okay.

From when we got off the elevator, being met by the host,to being sat down and handed our menus it was all very pleasant and made to feel welcome. Our server wasn't Mandy , cannot remember the servers name but she was happy and pleasant to deal with.
Sweet 16 Spring Break
This was a very special night for my 16 year old daughter and I to finish out Spring Break in our local city of Houston. She is learning how to become familiar with her neighbor City of Houston. It was perfect! The next morning we went back to the Galleria from Conroe. I think the next time we go we will try booking a room in this beautiful neighborhood gem!
Thank you to manager, chef and waitstaff for an unforgettable 80th birthday experience for my aunt. The view great too.

Excellent choice if u want to propose
On 3/12/16 went there to propose to the love of my life and it couldn't have been the perfect place. Mr. Ricardo the restaurant manager called the day before to ask what he could do for me to make sure everything from the food to the atmosphere were perfect. He allowed me to arrive 30 minutes before opening. It was perfect! My fiancé loved it. The whole staff was amazing. Our waiter Mario was very helpful and always took care of us. I'll be back again soon. Thank you averyone...
Daughter's 18th Birthday Dinner Celebration
We celebrated my daughter's 18th birthday the Spindletop and everything was amazing. Since she was turning 18 I wanted to treat her a very nice upscale restaurant. The service was great! The view was spectacular and the food was exceptional! We had an amazing time and my was extremely happy with our experience. The chef and staff came out to greet us and sang happy birthday to my daughter. They provided her with an autographed chef's at and a birthday card. What an awesome experience and night my daughter won't forget.
Loved it and will return!!!
I went here for a night cap to celebrate my birthday with dessert and cocktails with high expectations and was not disappointed. This has been something I've been wanting to try for almost 2 years. I made reservations the day of, we arrived early and were seated immediately. The view of this city was gorgeous at night, especially since it was drizzling. the ambiance was perfect and everyone was friendly and helpful. The cocktails and desserts were amazing as well. They even signed a card for me as well. This place tends to be a bit pricey, but it's wonderful for celebrating a special occasion. I have no complaints what so ever and will be returning when I get the chance.
My wife and I spent our anniversary here a few nights ago and it was amazing the food, the wine, and the service was tip top! Will be coming back and I would suggest this to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion and who has some extra spending money haha
Not worth the money
The venue is wonderful with a lovely rotating view of downtown Houston and the ambiance is perfect for a date. The food on the other hand is no where close to worth the price. I had the beef filet which tasted more like roast than steak. Any good steakhouse makes a better filet. The seafood pot my friend had was good but he said still not worth it. Quite sad as I used to consider this one of the best restaurants in Houston. Back then they served Italian though.
Great view, good food - Noisy and expensive.
The food is good... not exceptional, but you will not be disappointed. The service is good. The view is what you came for. The check reminds you that you won't be coming often.
My wife and I were celebrating an anniversary and the experience was almost perfect. We enjoyed the attention we received including the Happy Anniversary topping for our dessert. The food was delicious except for the ribeye that was a part of the chef's special. My special included also shrimp and scallops which were delicious but the ribeye was very disappointing. There was nothing exceptional about the flavor or even the presentation of the steak. My wife's plate had an angus steak which was exceptional and far less costly than the special I chose. Other than the steak I had, it was still a unique experience and would be willing to give it another try.
