The indoors were so dark, it was impossible to even enjoy some appetizers with my friends.\r
Outside, a DJ was playing what you could hear was nice music but the sound quality was

Pros: great view, great facility

Cons: parking

This place has the potential to be one of the best spots in Houston based solely on location. The view of downtown is great, if you don't mind sacrificing good service and a welcoming attitude. Service is hard to find at Open City, and

I have not been to Open City for about five months and I don't think I will be back. I originally enjoyed this restaurant and was excited to celebrate my birthday there but was disappointed in the aweful service and change of menu. Not

After several visits with friends and family members , I realized this place is not for everyone. My friends liked the frozen Mojitos and the steaks. My parents as much as they enjoyed the food ( steaks , burgers etc. ) couldn't stand how

Great building including a rooftop bar with a great view of downtown. Fun menu with decent food. The WORST service I have ever had. Most recent visit was my last. No meal is worth the frustration.

Pros: WELL WORTH THE TIME

Cons: PARKING

we had reservations and when we showed up had to wait for over half an hour for a table....the catch is there was NO ONE in the restaurant. the waitress gave us the most ridiculous excuse for why we had to wait. the drinks were aweful!

We had a bachelorette party there, and the hostess was very helpful with reservations and seating us. The food was good, a little expensive, but i was very happy with it, and it was pretty much worth it. The drinks were WAY too strong. I

If I could give it NO Stars.... I would. This place is run by a bunch of 18-21 year olds and it shows. Please READ THE REVIEWS!!! especially negative ones because they are apparently the only authentic reviews. They must have lost their cook, because we were told that the only items on the menu they had were the hummus and chips and the nachos. The place was not crowded so it wasn't like they had run out of food. This was 6 pm on a Saturday night. Wonder why they have all those menus at every table with a list of food when they don't have any to serve???? The drinks were about as good as you can get at a frat house party. DON"T ORDER a MIXED DRINK or you will be sorry!!! I took one sip and that was all I could stand. The bartender dropped the shaker top on the floor while mixing up my drink and picked it up and kept shaking!!!

My friend and I went last night to check out the Half price wine thing on Tuesdays. Most of the wines were in the mid teens per bottle. Also, I thought the food was very good. We tried the blackened shrimp on a stick. The sauce on the plate - very good. I had the chicken fried chicken w/ killer gravy. Mashed potatoes were real. My friend tried the ribeye. Simple and straight forward. Our server, Jaime, told me that we should come back on the weekend when it's crowded, but I am not into the being seen thing and recommend you try this place during the week. Overall good food. It would be nice to eat on the roof, but I understand it is set up like a lounge. The only bad thing was they have no valet on Tuesday. Street parking is tough in Midtown, so plan to look for a space.

Ohhh I am so excited, when the weather starts to change there is nothing better than a pop rock martini, buffalo calamari, and Houston's Skyline at Open City. Their patio is open all year round but it starts to get hoping soon. I bring all my out of town and in town friends over to meet Nadine, Tamer and everyone else, they just take such good care of you. There is always something going on. The sangria is amazing! Everyone should check it out and bring your out of town guests because after dinner and drinks at Open City you are right in the heart of midtown where you are sure to find beautiful people and more great bars.

I had a great time at Open City! I can see how it might not be for everyone. It was crowded and the music was a bit loud - but I enjoyed it. The food was very good. Fish tacos were better than Berry Hill's.

A couple of friends and I went there after researching somewhere to eat for a "Girls Night Out". The place was pretty easy to find but that's where the praising ends. We had reservations (which are NOT needed whatsoever). We got there and requested to sit on the rooftop but couldn't because it was occupied so we settled for sitting in the actual enclosed restaurant area. First of all it was so dark in there tha you cant see ANYTHING. Next, the food was DISGUSTING and there wasn't much variety. I had the chicken pasta which was really really bad. The only word that I can use to describe it is ICK. Oh, the waiter was pretty annoyed also and wasn't really tending to us. We asked for some limes and it took him, not exaggerating, 25 minutes to bring us 4 slices of lime.
Don't go here.
