I went yesterday to celebrate a friend's birthday. The waiter from the beginning seemed to be very impatient as it took us some time to look through the menu. We ordered two salmons and a salad. The salad as a decent dinner side but the salmons were a joke taking into account the price. Then we ordered a cake and... More

Booking required as it is the place to be. There is valet parking, but if you are staying in the Post Oak area (e.g. the Hilton across the street) you can walk. Very good bar and also inventive "bar snacks". Don't miss the crab tostata- also makes a good starter and save room for dessert. Good wine list, especially from... More

Cafe Annie has a wonderful history and has recently reopened their doors in a brand new location. The atmosphere is quirkie elegant and the food is absolutely delicious. We are a fun group of older ladies who celebrate just about anything, so this was a perfect choice during Houston Restaurant Month!

Can't say enough positive things about Cafe Annie. Has been one of my favorites for 20+ years. The food, the ambiance, the staff, the owners, the wine list... All impeccable. If you are in Houston, the is a "must experience" place!

Our whole evening was an exceptional experience. The server was extremely polite and knowledgable and our meal was absolutely delicious. We had some special requests due a strict medical diet and the owner was incredibly helpful and obliging to ensure our every need was met. The decor is so lovely and the atmosphere lovely and friendly, but still very private.

The 4 of us dined at Cafe Annie on the HRW menu. I started with a delicious kale salad and followed that with shrimp and grits. I enjoyed the plate with the exception of the sauce. I've had much better. I was sort of bland and tomato-y. I had the lemon curd mousse. I asked to make sure it didn't... More

We had a visit with my mom in Houston. We had a wonderful dinner. The Male wine they suggested was fabulous. The kale salad with bacon and dried apple was the best I have ever had. The house salad was wonderful. The brisket enchiladas were exceptional. For entrees the branzino with grits, duck, chicken fried steak were wonderful. The macarons... More
