One of my favorites. Consistently exceptional. Fish sandwich one of the best. Servers best in the industry.

I've enjoyed the various Houston's restaurants in California for many years. They've been a go-to choice so when we were traveling through Irvine we decided, as we have done many times before, to break the journey with a nice dinner at Houston's. It was a Sunday evening. We were seated at a booth and things started off quite well. We... More

This is a nice and dark restaurant. The staff members are nice and kind but the place is very expensive for the food that they serve and its quality. I was surprise when I received the check. I do not recommend this restaurant. When my husband and I arrived we noticed that the place was empty, but we were open... More

Their baby back ribs are among the best I've ever eaten. However, every dish we've had there was exceptional.

Houston's is a good place to have a relaxing meal. Food is very good but a bit pricey for that type of establishment. Acoustics a bit loud which made things seem a little hustle and bustle-ish but not overbearing. Had a classic burger which was very good but 4 times more expensive than In-n- Out Burgers. The menu used to... More

Great Service, great food and pleanty of it. Weather it's one of the great Sushi Rolls, Burger or Chicken, Houston's has come up with some great tastes on their menu. The service is always impeccable. Always reliable.

Had dinner with my brother here. Took the ahi tuna salad for starter which was really good, perfectly cooked with a great dressing. Had the rib eye for main, be asked for medium. It was over cooked, even after I sent it back. The other main was the roasted prime rib which was well cooked and delicious

Came upon Houston's one day when we were frazzled and in need of a quick meal and glass of wine. Having never heard of the place, we expected a mediocre steak house, at best. We were greeted with the delicious scent of the grill and friendly hosts. The darkened atmosphere and comfortable booths offer a more private meal while the... More
