Consistently great food

My lady & I come here often. Attentive service from a clean cut and well trained "team system" youthful staff in trendy all black clothing. Our favorites on the menu - baby back ribs second to none, spectacular prime rib dip sand, great cheeseburger. Sushi choices are really good. They do not... read more

From the moment you steph inside to the dark, sophisticated atmosphere with designer "artichoke" lamps and indoor-outdoor koi pond, to the last bite of dessert, Houston's never disappoints. The chicken sandwich, which sounds boring, is anything but. Its own special soft bun tents a mouthful of the most delicious combination of flavors you will ever find in a lunch. It... More

We used to come to the place for years, and the food was always excellent. Kids like hamburgers, while we enjoy rolls, meats, and wine. Fish is not so outstanding, but still not bad.

On-site free parking is a great convenience. The ambience is quite decent. The range on the menu is outstanding (sushi to burgers to just about anything else) and all done very competently. The only shortcoming is that service can sometimes be a bit slow, but nothing terrible.

Wonderful Ahi tuna, perfectly cooked well seasoned, great texture and absolutely delicious. Busy all the time, reservations are a must, so just try one of the great wines while you wait.

This was the most delicious piece of Prime Rib that I have ever had. I can't believe how amazing it was. Literally prime rib is one of my favorite meals, but this is the best I've ever had... I didn't realize such a good thing could be served any better... But that is what they do here. Even their sushi... More

My husband and I have always enjoyed a meal here. The meat and seafood are always cooked perfectly and they have wonderful vegetable sides that change with the season. Service has always been good and ambiance is relaxing.

I like Houston's style its elegant, a bit upscale, yet casual. It works for a date or even a special occasion, yet it is fine for an early Sunday night supper with the kids. It's dark and a bit clubby. My favorite thing here are the steaks. They do meat right! Service does vary slightly from outstanding to average, depending... More

I've been going to Houston's for 20 years and they never fail to please. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is even better. I've never had a bad meal. The key lime pie is incredible. When I'm in the Midwest I love their chicken tenders (trust me). On the west coast you can't go wrong with any of their... More
