We were fortunate because the wait for a table was less than 15 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. I could make a meal with the spinach and artichoke dip alone. The food and the service was great.

If you get a chance ask for Ariel the server. She took extra special care of my girlfriend and I, and really made us feel welcome. The food was excellent!

When we want great ribs, we head to the Woodmont Grill. One of the restaurants in the family that includes Rutherford Grill in Napa and Palm Beach Grill in Palm Beach, we know that the quality and service is consistently excellent when we drop in on any of them. Not inexpensive, but worth the price of admission!

Nice restaurant with a jazz duo playing the night I was there. Very packed and a pretty decent wait but they is a table all the way at the end of the bar that no one notices where you can have appetizers while you wait. Overall good experience but not really worth the price

Been coming here for over 15 plus years. Back in the day, the restaurant was named Houston's. Make a reservation, if you can, because the wait for walk-in patrons can be staggeringly long. The menu prices are high and it's the same menu at lunch as it is for dinner. I don't mind because the food is wonderful and the... More

The service was excellent -not to stifling, but the right mix of attentiveness, pleasantry and professionalism. As to the food, my companion and I both had the crab cakes (2). At $35, they were smallish, but flavorful, but the texture was off-putting due to an excess of liquid. In addition, the cold slaw had a a great viscosity, but was... More

I've always loved this place (we still call it Houston's) and was not disappointed yesterday. The Hawaiian steak was delicious as always. It has however gone up in price to $35. They no longer offer blue cheese dressing for the house salad but the Caesar is still as tasty as ever. They were busy - it was 6:30 on a... More

We love this restaurant and think its food and atmosphere are terrific, but we have been repeatedly frustrated by the wait time (15-30 minutes on average), even when we actually HAVE a reservation. Their website says that they only accept "a limited number of reservations in an effort to accommodate the walk-in diner," but why accept reservations at all when... More

Steaks are always awesome. Wine list is priced fairly. Sides are always delicious. Simple menu, but execution is impeccable, and service is always excellent.

We used to be regulars here under previous management but had stopped going due to bad experiences/declines in all areas. We decided we'd give them a try after a few years and they've actually gotten much worse! Though half empty on a weekend night (others seem to have had similar experiences) they actually refused to make our meals this time.... More
