Great Find.

The menu is varied so there will be something everyone will enjoy here. Loved the themed naming of each menu item. We started with TCHAIKOVSKY (crab cake) and Mozart (shrimp cocktail). The Hairspray was the salad we ate. My son loved the mashed potatoes that came with his pork chop. His... read more

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal at the Houston Street Bistro. I ordered Chicken Gorgonzola; my wife ordered the "Wicked" beef dish. Both meals were really excellent, and at a very reasonable price. Only two blocks off the River Walk, the food was far superior to the meals we ate at the busier River Walk restaurants. Our waiter...

The service was good, the food was good. They were very fast - which was nice, as we were trying to grab something before a show at the Majestic Theater next door. It's expensive for what it is, not the nicest place, but not the worst.

We reserved a table for 4 at this restaurant, located two doors down from the Majestic Theater on Valentine's Day. We were attending a concert so we thought this would be a super location. We were so pleased with our choice! The food was excellent, and the choices were great. The wait staff was knowledgeable, and the timing of our... More

This place is very nice but I do not recommend taking children with you to have dinner there. We had dinner here before a show at The Majestic. We called in ahead and when we arrived we were seated immediately. They have a very small menu and do not have a menu for kids. The food was delicious.

We were sort of pressed for time because we were headed to see a play. Neither of us were straving so we asked to split the special of the evening. Service was fast and friendly. The Salmon was perfectly cooked; warm and flaky. It came sitting on top of mashed potatoes and whole green beans. The presentation was pleasing and... More

This restaurant is only steps away from the Majestic Theater main entrance. Great "people watching" location even if you aren't headed to the Majestic! Directly across the street from the Sheraton Gunter Hotel. This restaurant does not serve liquor; only beer and wine. We arrived 630pm without reservations as we were headed to the Majestic Theater for an 8pm show.... More

Food was Great!.. service very good. The dessert was a very nice creme brulleé. The place is a warm bistro. The restrooms could be better. But definitely we would visit it again!
