We had a problem with our food. It was cold. The manager immediately came to our table and solved the problem. She wanted us to be happy. We were very happy, and we would definitely return. The food is excellent.

This Houston's is fun if you can go when we don't have tourists! It can get quite crowed in the holiday season but the rest of the year it's not so bad!

I was visiting KC on business and came here for dinner. A nice restaurant (felt quite trendy) with good staff. I had a Thai beef salad which was excellent

I have been eating at this restaurant for years as I grew up in Kansas City. I have found myself going to Houston's less and less. Its not that the food is not good as it always is . It just seems like the desire to dine there for a simple dinner and pay over a hundred or so dollars... More

When I saw that there was a Houston's in the Plaza area I knew that I wanted to have lunch there. The Club Salad was wonderful as always and the burger and fries were delicious too!

Excellent roasted artichoke to begin. Seared tuna salad, veggie burger, and regular hamburger were delicious.

I thoroughly enjoyed my filet mignon. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The sided dishes were very good too. Service was impeccable. The atmosphere is very calming after a long day of work. Great place for a business meeting or a relaxing evening with friends/family. I don't recommend taking children though.

Been going for years ... decades, actually. the menu is excellent from top to bottom. The off-menu chicken strips are the best in the universe. Plus, zero corkage fee.

I wanted to go to a good KC steak house and my friends recommended this restaurant. The menu and prices had changed substantially since they last dined there. They only had two beef offerings - a rib-eye or filet. My friend's wife and I opted for the filet and he had the tuna. All were excellently prepared and brought out... More
