Really good food and Service

My husband and I met family there for brunch and the food did not disappoint. I had filet mignon and my husband had the ribs....we took leftovers so we could leave room for their homemade key lime pie. I definitely recommend it for a nice lunch / dinner. A little pricey but you can't beat the food... read more

Woodmont Grill (formerly Houston's) is one of our favorite Bethesda restaurants. The service is friendly, the live jazz music adds a cool vibe, and the food is delicious. Someone in our group always orders the ribs, which are falling-off-the-bone tender and yummy. Other favorites include the Flying Tuna Platter (seared sushi-grade tuna with a terrific side salad), the French Dip,... More

Fantastic atmosphere, great music and terrific food. I look forward to going to Bethesda for two reasons. One is for business, the second os for Woodmont Grill. Always crowded, especially at the bar where there is always great jazz music. I will be back, again and again.

Ordered the jumbo crab cakes and some assorted appetizers. Took almost 30 minutes for the appetizers to come out. The food was good but the service was exceptionally slow.

A friend and I were looking for somewhere to get a light bite later in the evening and we were standing at a corner where there are restaurants in every direction. We chose the Woodmont Grill not knowing that they have live jazz (the combo was on break when we got there). We sat at the bar and had drinks... More

Met some folks for dinner to talk some business. Ended up admiring the restaurant more than we talked business. Salmon was excellent. Colleague had Tuna which was excellent as well. Add to it the chicken tenders ( not on menu anymore but just ask for them and they will make them for you) and you have dynamite food. Service was... More

We have eaten here many times in the past and always had a good meal. Recently, we started a vegan diet to lower cholesterol. I had heard they had a good vegan veggie burger, so thought we'd give it a try. I was going to order the house smoked salmon, which I love (and I'm not quite a strict vegan),... More

I love the Woodmont Grill for an excellent meal and possibly the best and most fairly priced wine list in the country. All restaurants in the Hillstone group sell great wines for barely above retail prices, making my dining experience significantly better and more affordable.

Accommodating service the as very efficient and yet unobtrusive. We had salads which were fresh and tasty. This is a busy place and it's best to make reservations for the dinner hour.

We chose Woodmont Grill based on reviews and were delighted with service and food. Our server recommended the Thai salad with steak and it was a good summer dinner choice.
