I had the pork belly pizza but it had very little pork. Quite tasty nevertheless. My wife had the burger, good homemade patty, interesting fries.

Very busy. Food is fantastic. Atmosphere is great. Gets very busy before and after local events such as Rockets, Astros, Texans etc. Also has live music playing some nights - I love the jazz.

Cheese toppings had fungal growth inside and when we asked for new, again we got one with fungal growth. I complained to the manager and received not even an apology. I love the store but will never return for lunch.

If you are looking for great good at a very reasonable price, this is for you! I had the Tuesday steak special for $12.99 and I highly recommend it. Very generous portions! Try their homemade steak sauce!

I can really appreciate the thought that went into this curry veggie potpie - a little creativity goes a long way when avoiding meet. Beer and wine selection is always on point; and the local atmosphere is a treat for a traveling business dude. The guy behind the bar obviously takes his job seriously . . . . but not... More

A great place to pick up a quick meal in Downtown Houston to take back to your hotel, or eat in the small bistro/bar type dining area. Hot and cold selections - sandwiches, hot roast beef and turkey dinners, pot pies, salads, the works. Great deli too.

Supermarket+! Many specialty grocery items and exotic kitchen gadgets! Also a little restaurant. Found this store by accident while staying at the Hilton downtown. Would love to take my time and browse around more!

I was staying at the Hilton Americas so I walked to the market. I'm a simple person and this place is very exotic. I had no clue what half the stuff was they offered. I guess for the sophisticated crowd, it's great.

My friends and I went to Phoenicia Market Bar for brunch and it was the best! We had the egg scramble', chicken and waffles, queso and mimosas! It was all fabulous...no leftovers! The atmosphere was fun and the band was excellent! I highly recommend this place...I will be back!

Thank Becky C
