Always great food, cocktails, service! If you are dining indoors bring a blanket - my one complaint about this place is that it is always FREEZING. moreso than even most other public spaces in Houston that are somehow also always like walking into a refrigerator. I don't get it! But I still go back because everything else is epic!

It was poured into short red glasses. From the first sip there was an odor to it. I asked my friend to try hers. She asked why so I asked her if it had a funky smell. She sniffed her glass and said yes! The server had left the bottle on our table so we sniffed it and the water was fine but the glasses needed to be washed or thrown out because we wasted an entire bottle of bottled water. The food choices were interesting, but not what we had in mind. After hearing several descriptions of ingredients we lost track of what was being described, and instead decided on side dishes. My grilled vegetables were cooked with way too much lighter fluid. I thought I had read about a wood grilled oven, but my food was flavored with lighter fluid. It was not a good experience for us, but it was quite crowded and everyone seemed to be enjoying the evening. There is a good vibe and I wish them much success. Their sister restaurant, BCN is more to our liking and we have never had a bad meal there.

We chose the tasting menu as it was our first time there and wanted to sample the full range of menu and we were absolutely not disappointed. We started with cocktails, which the prices might seem daunting but they spare no expense in both quality and quantity of ingredients so completely worth it. From the first course, the food did not disappoint. "Liquid Olives" really stood out as did a potato mousse that probably was the most disconnected between expectations and actual flavor/texture. Unlike many tasting menus, it was overall a generous amount of food (not a typical "too much" portion but we both left feeling full). We talked about the experience afterward and realized that the appreciation of its creativity and quality increased after returning home. I wholeheartedly recommend giving it a try if you are looking for something different, creative, and refreshing in the Houston dining scene.

I mean patatas bravas ,croquetas r probably four times what u would pay in spain. Even houston prices sevent-eighty per person without alcohol is steep.

She said it was too late and it would look bad on her. After consuming $400 worth of food and drinks we did not expect that answer. To add insult to injury, the dessert tasted like a wrong ingredient was dropped into it. It was so bad we couldn’t eat a second bite. All the food before that was delicious. The service I had on a prior visit to MAD was phenomenal, but this most recent visit was disappointing.

The all mirrored bathroom hall is somewhat mysterious and matrix like but super cool. Booth seating tables are a bit tight though. But food and service is amazing. I tried the tasting menu. Phenomenal! Love that manhattan’s bourbon capsule thingy. Melted in your mouth with all the goodness inside. The rest of the dishes are all delicious. 8 dishes plus desserts with 4 different types. But we do get pretty full toward the end so go with a big appetite.

Small portions with poor preparation and very expensive. Very trendy though, lots of people taking selfies for social media. Overall a very poor experience for a $350 meal.

I can not remember the names on the menu but beef tartare, quail egg in potatoe purée, spaghetti tapa with bacon, spicy potato wedges,etc, all excellent. Six of us were very impressed with foods. The cocktails are good too.
