When told the wait would be 40-45 minutes, one would expect around that time frame. But when an hour passes and told it would be a few minutes and those few minutes turn into another fifteen, you get a little antsy especially when you are seated after 9pm. When my wife took a bite of her salmon and it was... More

Met a friend there for lunch and had fabulous crab cakes with excellent slaw and fries. We both really enjoyed them but $32? Pricey for lunch.

I took my husband to this restaurant for this birthday, and we truly enjoyed the experience. It's imperative that you make reservations well in advance. If you don't, you're liable to wait for up to an hour for a table. With reservations, you walk right in. No issues. We were seated in a booth and shortly serviced. We ordered the... More

The Woodmont Grill is in the old Houston. We descended with several kids and a constantly changing guest count! They did not have a table for the 9 of us, but put us in two adjoining booths. Then when two more arrived they quickly moved us effortlessly to another area to keep us together in three booths. Then more arrived... More

I've heard great things about the food, but the wait to get in is always 30-60 minutes. They need to get it together with reservations--usually we throw in the towel and cross the street to Black's, which is terrific.

Remembering the great dinner I had at another location, I was delighted to discover a Houston's during a recent visit to Bethesda. Other than the dark wood shutters, this location bears little resemblance to that other one. We reserved for 7, arrived on time, only to be told we'd have to wait for 15 minutes! We were told this was... More

Yes - this is part of the Houstons chain. Since they closed the one on Rockville Pike, this is my only option. I love the Thai Steak salad, the roasted artichokes and the steak. Never had a bad meal here. Eating at the bar is a great option and they will take care of you. I do think the chef... More

I had the Thai Steak salad but asked for the house vinagrette on the side as I don't like spicy food. I thought the salad was outstanding. The Mango and Avocado were the perfect degree of ripeness and the crispy noodles added the right amount of texture. I love the atmosphere of this restaurant - I feel like I'm in... More

The ambiance of the restaurant is nice, I ordered a Cobb Salad with no avocado and the salad came with avocado which I picked through. The staff was very attentive and the choices are few. Parking for a fee is located next to the restaurant. I would rate the service higher if my order was correct.
