Houston Press' Description

Sambuca, located beneath the Rice Lofts, is like a modernized version of an old-school supper club.

Live music, including pop, rock, r&b, Latin and, of course, jazz, plays seven nights a week. Dine on small pizzas, salads, pastas, seafood and grilled meats while relaxing with a fancy cocktail. After dinner, the well-dressed crowds take to the dance floor.

    Um...plastic glasses? Unseasoned everything and an overlooked steak. Definitely not worth the high end prices. I wish the food was as good as the presentation
