They are gratuitous, the meal was fantastic. I’d have to say the BEST Chinese food I’ve had. And I’ve had a lot of Chinese food!

Finally made it back to G&F exactly one year to the day! Had the most marvelous soup baos and char sui meatballs for an appetizer and really tasty craft cocktails ahead of our mains. I had the spicey fried pork and the hubs had the curry chicken. Both were outstanding. Warning - the spicey pork is SPICEY but oh so good!! The menu is not so extensive that you can't make your mind up but big enough and so tasty it's hard to choose. Meals are served family style so you can share if you want. (Note: I did not!) The staff are very well versed in the food and happy to give recommendations if you need help deciding. We hope the pandemic doesn't keep us away another year.

Best Chinese (Fusion) meal I have ever eaten. Such unique combinations of spices, vegetables and proteins available. Not an extensive menu, but everything we have eaten there, has been outstanding. Highly recommend this to anyone who remotely likes stir fry, noodles, rice, etc. Fresh and fresher, is the theme for the menu and their craft cocktails. Simply put, amazing!

Great place. The food is always good and the service too. Its a bit pricey for the portions though. Currently they are using giant size menus on stands to separate the tables due to Covid. Its pretty obnoxious and too close in your face while you are ordering and eating. Makes the place look a tacky which is a shame because its a really cute place. They need to go back to regular menus now.

Not my first dining experience at G&F, so I knew what to expect. I took my GF to celebrate her birthday (and it was her first time).

I was not pleased at being placed at a table at the very back of the restaurant, up against the back (patio) door; however, I understood the decision from a planning perspective.

The most interesting change I noted was that G&F has its menu on banners between the banquette seating. Pretty neat, and it also creates privacy between the diners. Also removed the need for table menus, scanned menus, etc.

The prices of the menu items were surprisingly not offensive, given this inflationary time we all find ourselves living through. Two alcoholic beverages, an appetizer, and two entrees came in at just under $100. The appetizer: fried cauliflower, was so good. They need to incorporate that somehow into an entree. One of the entrees: pot beef (not the exact name), was SO full of flavor.

The restaurant becomes quite noisy with more people, and a large party was sat just behind us. Being that it is the holiday season we just went with it….

Overall, this is a wonderful restaurant. The bar is a GREAT area to sit and enjoy a pre-dinner drink. The cocktails are ON POINT.

Pro-tip: valet park

The food is really delicious! Soup dumplings, bao, green beans with pork, bok choy, lamb , pineapple chicken & another noodle dish all great … not so good was the fried chicken dumplings… too hard.
The prices are high for what you get… not huge portions.
Maybe lunch is more affordable

We went for the first time for my mom’s birthday. She came from out of town and loves Cantonese Chinese food but never has it. We were so impressed by the informed, light touch of the staff, the timing of the courses—warm and perfect—the flavor and aromas, and the understated elegance of the ambiance. The food was delicious and effortless. Scallops and fried rice, soup dumplings and fried cauliflower. Plus a birthday ginger parfait on the house! And spontaneous mocktails by the bartender! We will be back.

The meal was good, service awesome. The only issue was that we were a business meeting and in a rather empty place they sat a large boisterous (fun) party next too us. That seemed a little short sighted, but we enjoyed the meal.

The food, the service, the cocktails were absolutely first rate. The staff wants to make sure you have an unforgettable experience, and they go out of their way to make it happen. This is a spot that needs to be on everyone's list of places to go in Houston. If you dont make it here you'll hate yourself.
