  • Mockingbird's American Kobe beef burger, grilled with seared foie gras and truffle pomme frites, was just called out by Texas Monthly as one of the top 10 burgers in the state.
  • Brunch: Sunday 11am-3pm. Among the favorite items are the crispy squid, smoked salmon benedict & more!
  • 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.
  • Great place in the neighborhood for a date! Very hidden and private!
  • Very good service and happy hour menu with $5 drinks and small plates from 5-7pm

  • 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.
  • 2010 Best of Houston Winner: Best Cheese Plate: If you're feeling particularly continental, order the three-cheese-plate for dessert at only $9 (along with a selection of crackers, fruit and honey)!
  • Try the Scallops with Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, Parsnip Puree, Caramelized Onions & a Balsamic Reduction
  • 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.
