We've been going to Houston's for many years, as a matter of fact many of servers are still there, that tells you about the establishment. Their menu is small and changes every few months, but it's always good. It's the perfect environment for a romantic date, lights low, not excessively loud and the wait team is very attentive.

I've been to this restaurant at least half-a-dozen times and have enjoyed it every single time ! The ambience is romantic. The bar is a well-decorated pleasant area. The service is quite good. The menu selection is above average. The presentation is very good. The value is pretty good for Bergen County, NJ. I don't think you'll be disappointed in... More

First time going to this restaurant with my co-workers and everything from the appetizer to the entree to the drinks was perfect! The waitress was very attentive and nice. At some point, the drinks took long to be brought to our table, but other than that, we had an awesome time. Definitely returning to this place in the future. Check... More

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
