Houston's/Woodmont Grill was a favorite meeting spot for some years. Service and overall appeal have degraded over time and a former favorite is now to be avoided. Last time there we ate at the bar. The bartender was cold, bordering on hostile. Today the noise level on entering for lunch was so painful that I left.

We have been eating here since it opened and still love it! The food is always consistent and good! The wait staff is excellent....they seem to have the right formula there I am disappointed, however, that they are so rigid about the dressing on the chicken salad and also that they have removed romaine from their restaurant!! While I love... More

Everything is always good at the Woodmont Grill- Great food, attentive service and amble portions. The only changes over the past 10 plus years, and the prices keep going up an up. However, no one in our party ever leaves not full and satisfied!!!

Have been to this restaurant a few times over the last couple of years. Always enjoy the live jazz music and ambiance of the place.

I have and will always love Houston's aka Woodmont Grill. I'm so happy that Woodmont grill kept the same menu concept as Houston's. Whatever state that I visit that has a Houston's I'm definitely dining there. I do not care how many new restaurants are presented I will always love Houston's and Woodmont Grill.

The Woodmont Grill (formally Houstons restaurant) has been a staple of the bethesda area for years. It endures because it serves consistently good food with expceptional service almost always without fail. They don't change the menu much as they have their winners and enough variety for all. Its a reliable restaurant and nice dimmed atmosphere that isn't too loud.

I've been here SO many times. Absolutely every time I come, I am shocked I don't come more often! Atmosphere is dark, cozy, and very Mad zsappokMen. The music on the weekends is such an added plus! But the food, drinks, and service are always always perfection. I have not ever had a drink that was less than amazing! One... More

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!
