Overrated and overpriced. $140 for 2 appetizers, paella for 2, 2 deserts and 4 glasses of wine ($10-12 each). You would expect fine dining for the price, but the only part of it was the hefty bill. Uninviting interior, poor food presentation, basic tableware, average food (we could not finish even half of the paella), limited choice of desert (one of which, Dolce Finale, is just several pieces of chocolate bar, walnuts, and nougats on a plate). The worst part was that when booking the table I asked for a special for my wife's birthday, like a candle on cake. As I received the prompt reply "Of course complimentary w / a candle on top!" I was waiting for the presentation, but that never happened. I do not know whose fault was it, reservation system to the restaurant, but it's a shame. Not recommended.
I couldn’t have picked a better place to enjoy my 2nd anniversary dinner. Great location with very kind staff. Hannah was the best! Very attentive and professional. Patrick greeted my lady& I warmly and made us feel welcomed. We recommend Bella on Houston to everyone.
So here is why I like this place : the food was good, the place looks great. The people who served is were awesome. That is why it makes the difference. We were there to celebrate a friend's birthday (dinner). Most of them arrived late, i am not happy about it but it happened. But the staff had a cheerful attitude for the time we were there. People who served our table, I am sorry for that but you are awesome! I would recommend this place!!!
