Great Grilled Artichokes

My son took us there for a dinner the food is great. Prim Rib and Filet you could cut with a fork. Their Grilled Artichokes are to die for.

Whether you are in the mood for sushi, steak, seafood, burger or ribs this should be your first choice. We try to eat here every couple of months and have never walked away not completely enjoying our lunch or dinner. Our usual is to start with Sushi, "press roll" is a good one, the flying tuna is a light dinner... More

Long time gathering place for family & friends always comes through with great service & food. Prices are a bit high, but comparable to other area fine dining.

In town for business and was starving by 6:30. We walked to Houston's on a Tues night. It was going to be an hour wait for a table of 4. We made reservations for the next night. Food and drinks were good. Potato soup was ok- not exceptional. My friend had the coconut tempura shrimp roll- it was amazing. They... More

Houston's everywhere have a fine menu and the food is always done to exacting standards. The sushi in Pasadena is really nicely done. The ribs are as always finger-licking good. Service is very good. Never have had a bad or mediocre meal/experience at Houston's.

This elegant restaurant is beautiful-dark wood pseudo craftsman interior with great lighting, nice art and comfortable booths. Meat is the thing here, we had Hawaiian rib eye with baked potato and we split a salad. All delicious. Excellent service. Great background music. Although we bought wine, it is a great that they have no corkage fee for the first two... More

We can always count on an excellent meal here. The only hard part is getting a table! We enjoyed the prime rib and pan fried sea bass. We always have the artichoke to start and bread plate. Remember to ask for seconds or thirds with the bread plate. For desert we had the 5 nut brownie which is unforgettably good!... More

We always plan a visit to Houston's in Pasadena when we are in town. The food is delicious, the service is excellent. Our favorite is the BBQ ribs, but we've had delicious steaks also. Comfortable atmosphere where every customer is special. Our highest recommendation every time!
