Was pleasantly surprised to find this great restaurant tucked into strip mall near gourmet grocery store we visit in Manhattan Beach. Very upscale with a good bar. They prepared our food for take-out and packaged all portions securely in quality containers which kept these warm until serving 30... read more

I was one of the 1st people thru the door at this location when they opened! I knew of HOUSTON's before HOUSTON's opened ANY HOUSTON's in CA! I used to own an auto shipping co and we were at a conventional in Atlanta, GA! One of the things we used to do every year at the annual convention in a... More

Was here last night with my daughter for her birthday. We started with cocktails and an appetizer (the kale salad) it was "eh". We had three waitresses during the course of the evening and all three acted like they had other agendas... put our food or drinks on the table and before we could ask them for anything they were...

This is clearly once again another location from this restaurant group that doesn't dissapoint. The service, food and atmosphere are great. Prices are higher but the food quality warrents that. Everything is made fresh in their kitchen and the staff takes care to provide the best of service. The restaurant was faily busy, I stil had several people waiting on... More

Platitudes would be how I describe the service, the staff is full of it but it is very shallow. How do you charge $100 for lunch for 3 and rush them through -- offering dessert and the check while 1 of 3 in at the table is still eating their entree? Well they do that and more effortlessly at Houston's.... More

Any fish dish here is good. A higher end restaurant but casual atmosphere. I've eaten in the original in Nashville, which is also very good.

My second visit to Houstons at Manhattan Beach and both times I have had a great meal. The restaurant is very pleasant, comfortable and clean. They have a firmly limited menu, but the food is always delicious and plentiful and I love their brussels sprouts. Service good and staff friendly. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
