Best thing I ever ate. Seafood edition. Houston, Texas. Need I say more? Of course I do!
I am simply in love with Chef Charles Clark's Indian Chutney-Glazed Sea Bass. This dish is a frequent off-the-menu special and a must-have at Ibiza. The Lulu Wilson Salad, Local Goat Cheese, Portabella, Oven Dried Tomato and Apple Smoked Bacon Pizza and Moroccan Grilled Shrimp are delicious as well.
Mid-town gem with smart, sexy mediterranean influenced food & well priced wine list.
A truely WONDERFUL experience – I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Ibiza a couple of weeks ago while dining out with my family for my mothers birthday. Our servers name was eric, and although an intimidating figure, he truley provided us with a wonderful dining experience. He provided an excellent choice of wine, which was significantly lower than we were used to paying, and his explanations and reccomendations for the food were on point and to the tee. He couldnt have been more sweet or sarcastic for that matter in taking care of us. I am a goat cheese fiend and the Local goat cheese appetizer and morrocan shrimp were to die for. So much special attention was paid to my mother who was not optomistic about turning a year older, it really made her night. I must say it was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we have had as a family in a long time and we will be back for sure.
A very strange service experience... – Ibiza used to be one of my favorite places in Houston, but on a recent Thursday night, it was not up to its usual standards. It was a nice Thursday evening, so I was looking foward to sitting on the patio with a family member. They did their usual asking if you have a reservation, but then seating you immediately. We had an enjoyable meal, but nothing about either of our dishes was terribly exciting. Then, when we were almost finished a different server came to our table to let us know that our server had left because he was ill and she would be taking care of us. I was not sure I wanted to know that the person serving my meal was sick, but then he came back and offered to box up our leftovers - I didn't take anything home (although I wanted to). Then, when he started to walk away the two servers had a conversation right next to our table with her telling him he needed to go home. I understand that people get sick and still come to work, but there had to be a better and more private way to handle this. I'll may go to Ibiza again, but only if someone else suggests it.
fantastic! – The food is outstanding! The service is impecable. I'm very particular about how my food is prepared and I could not have thought of a better prep. The wine selection is fabulous and i could not imagine a better atmosphere!
Really disappointing! – Went back for a special occasion after two good meals here. Food was awful this time- really bad. Don't mind paying a lot for good food- but this was NOT. The crowd has gotten way too cheesy too. Guys: wear your dragon shirts and frost your hair tips!!
Best wine prices in town – After dining at their sister restaurant the previous week, we decided to give Ibiza a try for my mother's birthday. Boy were we not disappointed. Our waiter Wes was outstanding and gave excellent recommendations not only on the food but also on the wine list as well. Speaking of the wine list, wow! What else can be said? The prices are low, and they are amazing VALUES!!! I was shocked at seeing bottles I'm used to paying 60 or 70 dollars for listed at 45. The whole grilled shrimp with crab cornbread appetizer was fantastic. The vermillion snapper special and the braised lamb shank w/ spanish mint oil were fantastic dishes. But the highlight of the meal was the bread pudding. I may be returning just to have that again.
Love this place! – I go here every year for my birthday! The food is pricey, but well worth it. My favorites are : scallops, blue cheese tomato, and the creme brulee (amazing!) Great ambiance and the servers are fantastic.
a series of near misses – The wine was good and reasonably priced, but the food was on the lower side of middling. We tried appetizers, entrees, and desserts, and everything missed. Sometimes it missed only by a little, but this was nothing even resembling a $155 meal. Although I am perpetually disappointed by the Houston food scene, this place isn't worth another visit, even by local standards.
people too drunk to notice how bad food is – The place is ok , service fair , but food is really lousy from bread - desert . When people drink too much and accept mediocre food this is the result . Who wants lamb shank swimming in a dish of liquid over spicy mashed potatoes .Grossest potatoes ever . If you like good food don't go to Ibiza - Go to the real Ibiza in spain .
Best value wine list in Texas, terrific food and looks great too! – I took 3 business associates here for a Tuesday night dinner. We had reservations and were seated promptly (inside). All of us ordered appetizers and entrees, some also got salads and some got dessert wines. We had some really excellent Ridge Chardonnay that most restaurants wouldn't even carry, let alone sell at the low price that this place does. Their classic Wedge salad with Green Goddess dressing was terrific. In fact, everyone enjoyed their food tremendously. I went to Ibiza many years ago when I lived in H-town. This meal is making me think about moving back! Highly recommended.
Epicurean Perfection – This place is fabulous. I love the Moroccan grilled shrimp with goat cheese and the calamari. It has an extensive wine list, and the desserts are to die for. The atmoshphere is fun yet sophisticated and I highly recommended it.
