Houston's is by far our favorite steak restaurant in Pasadena. It is recommended that you make a dinner reservation otherwise you will likely wait over an hour for a table but the wait is totally worth it. They have impeccable service and everything I have ordered there has been superb. The filet... read more

very confusing service someone came to our table and apparently it was just for our drink order we had questions on the menu and were told "our waitress would be right with us" so the nice waitress, Kristin comes and because of the noise (we sat on the upper deck) she had to repeat to all 4 of us the...

I love their ribs, French Dip sandwich ... which is the best I've had anywhere, salads, and ribeye steak. Service is always excellent. You are greeted both on the way in and on the way out. It's a nice place to have a quiet lunch or dinner.

I love everything about Houston's - the food is delicious (especially the steaks of course), excellent service and terrific cocktails. Perfect for business meetings or to dine with friends. I can't wait to go back.

It was about an hour wait. I would recommend making a reservation as soon as you can! This place has a really... More

This is one of the better, trendier chains out there. I've been to the store in Houston, TX, but I prefer this one in Pasadena, they just seem to do an overall better job. When in town for business, I usually try to make it here for a early or late evening meal because in-between you're gonna wait. They have... More

Houston's is a steak house that just happens to have sea food and Sushi. The staff are all dressed in coordinated black outfits and YOU DO NOT WEAR A CAP when you enter the dining room. As you walk in you will see these 18" to 24" Koi swimming around looking beautiful and setting the mood for the great dining... More
