Food is always good, the noise level is high but it's worth it. I always have a good time and leave very happy, I would recommend this restaurant to any one. It is a little pricey but good. Go and see for your self.

The atmosphere is loud, so for a business dinner, this place may not be the ideal restaurant. One of the hostesses was wonderful but another was very surly. Our waitress was very respectful of our conversation but made sure to take care of what we needed. Two of us had the fish special, a Mediterranean Sea bass which was very... More

It's noisy, the food is ok. Other people like it because I see that it is crowded. But, for me, It's nothing to rave about.

We typically order the Bronzino (see pic). Portions are abundant and the food is consistently prepared and always delicious. Not the cheapest lunch, but you get what you pay for. Fresh, well seasoned and professionally run. Want to do a shout-out to Sherry, a manager here. She is attentive, very professional and handles any hiccups with flair. We are regulars... More

It is difficult to say anything good about this place. Lets start with the reception area. My wife and I had a 7pm reservation on Thursday night. When I approached the check-in area, there were two women checking people in-- both of which had personalities of a "Wet Dish Rag". The woman greeted us with, "We need a little grace... More

The mall parking here gives you a nice break from the NYC, NJ parking craziness. Lots of high end restaurants at this mall including; Cheesecake Factory, Morton's, and Maggiano's. Houston's atmosphere was lovely and welcoming. Service was attentive and offered to put my food under a heat lamp when I had to step out for a phone call. The waitstaff... More

I met a good friend at this Houstons for lunch. I had the cream of tomato soup, (good) and the broiled salmon, also good. The service was excellent. I like the atmosphere in this Houstons, it has a large number of big booths wiich make your conversation private. They have a combination soup and salad special which is also a... More

Had not been to this branch since leaving Bergen County in 2000, but recently had lunch their and it was fantastic. The place still looks fresh, the server vibrant and the food is wonderful! Try their new crab cake salad or my long time favorite chicken salad. Super burgers, really thoughtful and well-prepared big plates. Excellent wine list and well-crafted... More

Houston's used to be one of my favorite places to dine, but no more. I dined there last night and continued to find they are downsizing portions,upsizing prices, and eliminating free refills. I ordered their chicken finger platter and where the plate used to be overflowing, it had two measly chicken fingers. Houston's no longer offers unlimited refills on soft... More
