Was with a large group of associates had dinner here. Not the quickest service ever but ok. Food was good. Would not be my 1st choice. The beef nachos were better than chicken.

Hearsay has a fun, casual brick interior with high walls and funky lighting. A bit loud atmosphere but comfortable and a nicely rounded menu. My sever Daisy was delightful with her attentive service and cheery explanation of the menu. She was assisted by Justin who was as energetic and helpful. Small plates, major salads, sandwiches, pasta and of course entrees.... More

This is a great Sunday bottomless Mimosa brunch spot, or date night dinner spot while enjoying this end of downtown. The food here is good, the atmosphere is trendy and can be construed as slightly upscale. They do have cloth tablecloths and napkins, a trendy interior, fancy mixed drinks, and valet parking. Make sure you have a reservation, especially for... More

Hearsay is my favorite brunch in Houston! Make a reservation, because it is very popular. There is a live band on Sundays which makes it a very festive atmosphere! The food is excellent (specifically the burger and fries) and the bottomless mimosa special is a home run! A perfect brunch experience.

We visited for lunch on a Saturday when they were serving brunch, including some inventive offerings like breakfast tacos and a brunch burger. The food was great, prices were reasonable, especially for a hotel restaurant, service was friendly, the atmosphere was nice, portions were large (this is Texas). All in all, a very nice experience.

We were looking for some good food and cocktails after our flight. We had never been to Houston so we wanted to check out the downtown area. After a bit of googling we found Hearsay Gastropub. The staff was helpful and they had a great cocktail list. We each had a couple cocktails and they were all great. The food... More

Enjoyed a good dinner at Hearsay restaurant. A lively restaurant on a Thursday night. No wait to be seated. Attentive service, tasty food, casual and classy atmosphere. My tasty lamb chops were served with a substantial quantity of vegetables. My partner also found his meal to be quite satisfactory.

If you want a near perfect experience make a reservation well in advance as this is a great place! Had to settle for an early dinner but we had a great meal and terrific service. Started with Deviled Eggs that were served up with bacon and chives! Yum! Followed by a Roasted Artichoke and Pepper soup that was delicious! Enjoyed... More

I really liked the venue. The feel of the place was really nice. Great for a date night or an evening out with a client. Service was ok...nothing to write home about but it wasnt bad either. Food was great as were their signature drinks. The "Whitney" drink was fantastic. I had the Byrd burger which was also excellent. I... More
