Gratifi Kitchen + Bar

302 Fairview Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 832-203-5950

Location Description:

Located in a charming old house on a rapidly developing corner of Fairview in the heart of Montrose, Gratifi Kitchen + Bar boasts a sunny and bright dining room with an understated modern aesthetic, recently updated when the restaurant appeared on the Food Network show Restaurant: Impossible. The wrap-around patio is a nice place to take in the bustle of the neighborhood, weather permitting, with the added bonus of a pet-friendly policy. The food can be hit or miss, and the service slow and occasionally forgetful. Stick with standard-issue dishes here for the best bet. A full service bar offers a handful of well-intentioned cocktails, but you're better off choosing a craft beer from the all-Texas list.
