Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
Let us handle the turkey and the truffle this year! Executive Chef Danny Trace created a special 5-Course Thanksgiving Menu sure to impress you and your special guests. Dinner is $99 per person, plus tax. We will be open from 11am-3pm on Thanksgiving day.
Waiter did not pay attention to our order and added stuff to our order. Went by memory and got it wrong. Sent a drink to us when we did not ask for it. Was always in a hurry and acted as if we were interupting him from a more important task.
It was very good- I would say that the only complaint is that the desert I ordered left out an item that it said it would include and didn’t.
We went to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary 35 years
Excellent dining experience. The dish cost is high for the quality and quantity.
We have been there many times and decided to go for our anniversary. Great ambiance, superb food, wine and service.
I recommend Potente, great service, and very respectful staff. My second time at the restaurant and it seemed that it was the first time again, we tried more items from the menu and it was totally worth it.
Must try the truffle spaghetti and the steak is amazing as well. We tried the Oysters this time as a starter and they were delicious.
The food was amazing and our waiter, Valentin, was a true gentleman and made our evening very special.
Wonderful evening. Excellent service as always!!
They showed so much discrimination towards us. Kept having people stare and watch us we never return
One of the best restaurant experiences in Houston. Highly recomend
Food and service were top tier as expected. I enjoyed the special attention and unique details the service staff offered. Every course included some surprising detail. The wine list offers quality at all price ranges. Pleasant experience but not quite above the norm at this high price point.
Absolutely the best restaurant and food in town. The service is superb but the food is equivalent to a Michelin star restaurant. This place continues to impress us every time
The service was exceptional. The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and had great recommendations.
I don't go out for dinner often, but when I do I want it to be over the top in presentation and flavors. Potente did not disappoint.
Anniversary dinner at Potente was fabulous! Food, service and drinks were all exceptional. This has become our go to for Italian fine dining in Houston. We look forward to returning soon!
It was a cute decor, very romantic and ambiance was amazing. The table seating was very spacious and intimate at the same time. Service was impeccable and food was beyond amazing. Covid19 safety was very adequate. Loved it all.
Our evening at Potente could not have been better. The food, wine, and service exceeded all expectations. Our experience began with an off the menu platter of fabulous meats and cheeses. We then progressed to appetizers of house made spaghetti and black truffles as well as a serving with white truffles.Our dinner could have stopped there and we would have been happy but we continued to a veal chop ( unlike any other ), duck breast, confit, and sausage over pasta, Bisteca, and anglionotti topped with crab meat. Perfect desserts capped a perfect dining experience.
What an amazing experience. I always love coming here and it was a first time for my guests. They enjoyed it as well. The service, food, and ambience were perfect. We enjoyed each course and the wonderful desserts. This is my first eating out since Covid-19 started as well and I was very comfortable!! Thank you making my birthday a special one and also making my guests' experiences amazing as well!
A great reprieve during COVID. The ambiance was wonderful like the service and food. High ceilings and very spacious so felt very safe. Beautiful spot to have a night out enjoy family. Will be going back very soon. Highly recommend the seafood.
Excellent Italian cuisine, all staff very professional and warmed welcome.
For sure we will return many times...
I strongly recommend.
The food was amazing. The service was outstanding. Not much else to say, we’d dine here again without hesitation.
Chef Danny and His Team were Outstanding as Always!!!
Always excellent food and superior service. Thank you for another great experience.
Excellent food, great service, made our anniversary very special! Would recommend!
Would have been excellent, but sat for 15 minutes unattended with no drinks or menus.
Great place to be in Houston.
Quiet and great food
The food was fantastic and the service over the top.
I will definitely come back to eat here.
Wonderful way to celebrate a birthday. The spaghetti with truffle shavings is out of this world! I’ll be dreaming of it!
Celebrated my anniversary here.
Small portions for big prices. The experience is worth it but the food was not
Great food. Incredible variety offered on the menu. Attentive service. Looking forward to returning again & trying something new. Potente is a wonderful addition to downtown dining.
Everyrhing was excellent, we will be recommending.
First time eating here. Everything was outstanding!
We went with the tasting menu and wanted a particular menu item included, to which they they were very accommodating. The service was exceptional. I appreciated the backlit menus and they made a perfect Old Fashioned
I’ll definitely go back
Incredible food! Really cool spot in Houston with high quality food.
Everything was excellent! Great service ambiance and the food was on point. Will be returning
Food and service was excellent. Although social distancing could definitely have been better. The tables were very close to each other and the dinner room filled.
Will was amazing and attentive. As was the rest of the wait staff. Food was even better this time around. Wine list is excellent. Thank you!!
Went for last day of HRW dinner. Everything was superb from the cocktails to the dessert. Didn’t have wine in addition to cocktails because it was a weeknight. Restaurant is spacious so at 75% capacity still allows distancing between tables. Truly enjoyed our time here. Brought back memories from past few years when we’d frequently come before or after the baseball games since we are season ticket holders.
The truffle spaghetti is so amazing! I ordered this six times in this September. Highly recommended.
