Delicious, unique dishes prepared with fresh, local ingredients. Everything was good! We had the goat with green papaya salad, pot roast over delicious skillet-cooked collard greens and tender potatoes, roasted cauliflower, braised kale with golden raisins and pecans, vinegar pie with salt brittle, and so much more. The wine list is extensive and unique--try the "underbelly" wines that are quite unusual.

A whimsical menu, with some points higher than others. Our table of 3 had food restrictions concerning cilantro, pork and seafood, all of which greatly reduced the menu options. However, our waiter, Ryan, navigated us through the menu. Our trust in Ryan served us well. We were entertained with a variety of dishes bit we all agreed that the broccoli and deserts were outstanding. And the cream and root beer sodas were excellent. The food was good, but more than anything, Ryan's passion for food engaged our table. Well done!

Underbelly boasts that it tells Houston's food story. This is the best possible description of their menu. Underbelly doesn't necessarily fit into a box with what kind of food it serves, but with all the influences of the rich cultural fabric of Houston Underbelly takes a swatch from each and stiches it together. The wine and the charcuterie stand out as great programs that can stand alone, but the creative menu never ceases to challenge what you think you know about food. The Catch of the Day always stands to impress and the market vegetables show that there is much more to Underbelly than it's ability to cook meat well. Save room for dessert for the ice cream sandwiches are to die for!

Just recently visited Undervelly for the second time, and once again had a phenomenal meal with great service. They do not serve liquor, but you won't miss it with their awesome and reasonably priced wine selection. The menu changes daily so you'll always get to try something new with each trip. This time we had the hill country sausage with cucumber tomato salad (well smoked, lean meat that retains a nice moisture and spiciness), braised duck neck (a little challenging to eat, but the meat is very juicy and tender), crispy broccoli cooked in fish sauce (tangy, salty, crunchy deliciousness), and the pork belly (served with fried bao buns, kimchi, and sauces). This is one of the most innovative and exciting restaurants in the city.

Truly the best restaurant in Houston. Using locally sourced foods and influenced by all the cultures found in the area, Underbelly truly tells the story of Houston through food. I would stay away from lunch; while cheaper and less crowded, my lunch experiences have been hit or miss. Goat and dumplings and the vinegar pies are must get dishes.

Don't let the name fool you, this place is UPPER shelf cuisine. Far from the taste the name puts in your mouth, Underbelly has more than just pig on the menu. In fact it has a full service butcher shop if you're cured meat supply is running low (who's isn't these days?) Served family style, it is recommended to order 1-2 dishes per person. You will definitely pay for the experience, but don't let that turn you away, as it's one of my favorite restaurant ambiances in Montrose. Price Tag: 30% ambiance / 70% ingredients If the refurbished book menu wasn't intriguing enough, you'll be delighted to know that the menu's dishes change daily - mic check - DAILY. The wait staff were all too helpful and informative, but Diana C. went above the call of duty, and set us up with an armoury of explosive dishes. One of which was the Korean Braised Goat and Dumplings. Perfectly spicy and savory, something we saved for the end and suggest you do the same (if it's on your day's menu). Guest parking in the back, or valet if you so choose. Make a reservation, or come early. The crowds can be very loud inside the main dining hall, but there are several private rooms if you're lucky - or loaded. Highly recommended by #mrandmrsplace

Excellent restaurant. From James Beard award winner Chris Shepherd, every dish is well thought out. Menu rotates depending on what's available and what Chris wants cook. Awesome place.

What a diamond in the rough! Don't let the menu fool you. Everything here is fantastic. I was blown away by the shredded goat shoulder, goat dumplings, beef face cheese, and everything else we got. Think of a tapas style service but larger portions. And the staff is on top of things. They'll order everything for you if you can't make up your mind, and they're VERY friendly. One of the coolest restaurants I've ever been to!
