“An excellent way to spend Valentine’s Day! We loved all the food and wine, plus exploring the candlelit trails through the woods at night was magical. So much better and more romantic than going to a crowded restaurant.”

“Wonderful evening, no better way to celebrate Valentine’s!”

“Being amidst the beauty of nature on the trails of one of our favorite places in Houston for food, wine & togetherness is a very special evening that we’ve looked forward to every year for 6 years.”

“Tapas on the Trails is such a sweet getaway in nature that’s still in town! The lights and decorations on the trails create a memorable atmosphere to be with your partner.”
