Parking Options
We have valet for the block across Gray in front of Cyclone Anaya’s (complimentary at lunch) as well as a parking garage behind the restaurant on Bagby (pre-pay at kiosks at either end of the garage first level), and street parking is always available. If parking in the garage, please ensure you get a parking pass available at the kiosks or via text message. We prefer text message, as it will remind you when your parking is about to expire. Pro-Tip: if you are coming on a weekend evening (Friday and Saturday) you can pre-pay a flat $10 to park at CVS. This is a great option for those hanging out in the area and don’t want to worry about parking. Lot is monitored those nights, and the attendant is there until 1:00 am most mornings. If you are coming for lunch, the garage is free for 90 minutes with a parking pass.
Quick Seating
While most times a reservation isn't needed, when a reservation is made you will be seated immediately. You can also let us know of seat preferences (high booth, table, quieter area, etc.), server preferences, and special occasions and we can usually accommodate those requests.
Dress Code
A shirt and shoes are required, and we try to be as welcoming as we can. There isn’t a lot of a dress code – just as long as most of you is covered up.
Happy Hour
Happy Hour is Monday through Friday from 5:00-7:00 pm. We also have reverse Happy Hour on Thursday evenings from 9:00-11:00 pm and Sunday Funday on Sundays from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. We normally do not do Happy Hour on holidays that fall on weekdays. Usually, our rule of thumb is if the banks are closed, we might not be doing happy hour. There are some exceptions, depending on the holiday.
Take out
Offered, just call and place your order or come in and place your order. We DO NOT offer the Xiao Long Bao or Sheng Jin Bao (soup dumplings and pan-fried pork buns) to go.
Delivery
We don’t offer directly from the restaurant, but we are partnered with Favor, UberEats, and Doordash if you need a delivery. Menus are subject to change.
Catering
We do offer catering but does need to be planned in advance with one of our event planners. We typically need at least 3 days notice to be able to provide catering. Please call the restaurant at 713-527-8988 or email us at izakayamidtown@gmail.com to ask about catering options.
Allergies and Food Information
We try to accommodate as many allergies as we can. Please let your server know of any dietary restrictions you have, so we can better serve you. o Peanut: we do not use peanut oil in any of our dishes. We do have some items garnished with peanuts and other nuts. Let your server know and we can leave it out! o Gluten Free and Vegetarian are notated on our menus. The items identified CAN BE MADE gluten-free and vegetarian. They aren’t already, so please let your server know what needs to be modified. o Vegan: we can make some dishes vegan - just need to let your server know. o Dairy: These aren’t notated, but your server can walk you through the options.
