First visit ever to Houstons in Pasadena. Exterior gorgeous, ambiance very nice. Strongly suggest reservations as it was booked out on a Monday. Waiter was very attentive and really funny. Unfortunately vegetables arrived cold. He jokingly said "Oh, you wanted them heated?" and quickly retrieved my steaming hot veggies. Food quality was very good. Would return.

The restaurant has phenomenal ambiance, and is a great place for a date. Though, we are vegetarians, and there is really only one vegan/vegetarian friendly entrée on the menu. Though, the Veggie Burger was delicious. Great beverage list as well.

Went for a Father's Day Luncheon with kids and grandkids. The service was great and food was even greater. They have the best Hawaiian Rib-Eye, it is cooked to perfection and is tender, moist, and delicious to no end. Looking forward to eating there again.

Never had a bad meal at Houston's. Most go there for the steaks, I like the fish (especially the Salmon) just as much... For a business lunch or a romantic date, Houston's is a good bet...

The food was great, the cocktails superb and the wait staff was like a customer service training video of how to do everything right.

One of the best places in town. A little expensive, but not too crazy. Amazing food and stellar service. If if you're in the area, check it out.

Every time we go to Houstons we know what to expect. We love the food and great service. A little pricey for the restaurant and the food you get, but still like it.
