The Fort Bend Foodie 03/20/13
1531 Hwy. 6, Sugar Land, TX 77478
Upscale Mexican seafood
$16 – $38 entrees
Menu: The menu offered numerous options in all categories, mostly seafood and traditional. Some very interesting pairings were offered, but they were out of four of the standard menu items. The menu had food spilled on it from a previous customer.
Food: The food was well plated and generously portioned. It was fresh, crisp, and aesthetically pleasing, but had a somewhat disappointing flavor. The vegetables had a demi-glace that was different and pleasing. The flan, which didn’t have egg in it, was light and creamy with a rich flavor.
Service: On an early, slow Sunday evening, they were out of three of the standard menu items. The food was slow in coming out after someone else’s food was brought to the table and taken away to the right table.
Comments: This is a beautiful restaurant on the third floor of a building with awesome views of Lake Pointe Plaza and the city of Sugar Land. It is the only restaurant in Sugar Land that offers an elevated view of the city. The ambiance is perfect, with modern Aztec art on the walls and white table cloths on the tables. The appearance of the food is impressive. The service was rather disappointing. It has great potential to be a premier upscale restaurant in Fort Bend County, but the experience was anything but upscale.
Overall Rating: 3 STARS for the view and ambiance only.
