    Menu and food pairings are a bit unappetizing, no ability (per the waitress) to substitute any items on the menu. Overall, the breakfast is great but avoid for dinner - far better places and food choices for the the same price-point.

    Our group is notorious for running late, but some how on this trip we were early. When we arrived to the restaurant they were able to seat us earlier than reserved and the service was phenomenal. The Happy Hour selection is incredible. We ordered the chips with blue cheese and they were gone in minutes; we almost ordered a second round.

    I have very rarely been as disappointed by a Houston restaurant as I was leaving Weights and Measures! The service was ok (not stellar but not bad) but the food was bland and poorly seasoned across the board with the one exception of the pancakes, which were quite tasty. The drinks were very good as well, but the food was notably bad. Weights and Measures should stick with baking!

    From start to finish we were very pleased. We got 5 different items. One being the carrot pizza. Amazing! Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was great for being a warehouse. I can’t wait to go back and try the short rib sandwich for lunch. Our waitress highly recommended it. Also to try out the bakery and maybe even getting a glimpse of the pasta being made. So all in all, very enjoyable.

    I was so excited to try this restaurant since it has been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I ordered the short rib sandwich and was a bit disappointed. Half of my sandwich was just fat. The other half had some good meat on it. Honestly, the meat was a little bland. I asked for extra horseradish dressing because I couldn’t taste it on the sandwich. Someone else ordered the fish and chip. It was a little bit too greasy. Lastly, the salted caramel cremeaux was so salty that we couldn’t taste the chocolate. Two of us ordered it and neither of us finished it. There are some other very interesting things on the menu. I will go back and try those things, especially the roasted carrot pizza. One of our guests tried the chicken and French toast, and that was delicious. Someone at another table ordered the steak salad. That also looked really good. Maybe my expectations were too high?

    I feel the carrot pizza and chilaquiles are the things to get. I'm a big coffee drinker so their spiked lattes is what I aim for when I come here. Parking lot is decent size but there is also side street parking and a couple bike racks

    We will return. The service was outstanding. Most of the food was outstanding. The duck and the lamb were crazy good. The bread pudding also excellent. The bread was good, but the butter was out of this world. I do not recommend the oysters. They were fresh and quality, but we were simply looking for a traditional presentation (horseradish and crackers) and that’s not what they do.

    We were a little disappointed. It was OK. But for the price it was not as good as we hoped. I had been here for lunch and enjoyed it. I think their dinner menu is very over priced. The service was very good and the spot is nice.

    Waitress was not helpful in the least. We had to seek her out for a dessert menu. The three entrees we were served are not something any of us would reorder. The water servers were the best part of our service that meal time. Dessert menu very limited for a bakery. Waitress could not give us separate tickets she informed us.. We cashed out and went elsewhere dessert and coffee. I would publish this review. But someone at W and M needs to know of this experience.
