    One of the better spots in Houston! Parking in the neighborhood is a challenge, but they have valet, and the food is so worth it.

    Mockingbird Bistro is a perfect place to enjoy a big fat steak with french fries and an earthy Rhône red wine or a hamburger and a cold beer. Read more

    The lamb was definitely the right choice to make. It was perfectly cooked medium, the way I asked. The goat cheese risotto served with it was kind of cold though and did not have that much flavor.

    Brunch: Sunday 11am-3pm. Among the favorite items are the crispy squid, smoked salmon benedict & more!

    Bizarre choice of music (e.g. Lenny Kravitz, Imagine Dragons, Alanis Morissette) for an otherwise dark, quiet, romantic space.

    The appetizers were enormous. Too big for my taste. This is the onion soup.

    Didn't know about this neighborhood gem, great place! Music was odd for the atmosphere. Wonderful service, ask 4 Harmony. Chicken was delish. Order Malbec 'nice'. Lamb was meh. Cheese plate a must.

    Extremely fast and friendly service. Very helpful with wine selection. This is a great place to have wonderful food with friends, so long as you have the few hundred dollars to throw down.

    Mockingbird is one of those rare bastions of civility that's open on a Monday night, all the better to enjoy a glass of wine and a carefully constructed cheese plate at the restaurant's stately bar. Read more

    You won't be able to see this on their website but they have tables outside by the front doors, in a sort of front porch environment. Great place for a enjoyable date night.
