“Good food and fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The food and service here were very good. I had the seared tuna with a salad. It was exceptional. They have a decent wine list and the staff is well trained. Impressive place to bring clients or do business. A little pricey. I was disappointed to learn it was not locally owned, but part of a larger corporate chain with a local name.

“Great atmosphere and food, a little pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

This place reminds me very much of Clydes, classic American style and food, nice live jazz set in a semi-formal atmosphere.

Their veggie burger was delicious but for $17 a little pricey. Their babyback ribs were phenomenal, however again a little expensive. If you're going out to celebrate but don't want to mortgage your house over to Mortons this is a good spot to go.

“A first class cozy restaurant in Bethesda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I went there for lunch. The decor is first class, and the service topnotch and very friendly. A welcoming restaurant which keeps the lights dimmed very low, so that, unless you eat at one of the outside tables on the patio, this is really a restaurant perfectly suited for intimate tete a tete meetings. The menu is on the expensive side, but the portions are generous and the food excellent.

“We miss Houston's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We recently visted the Woodmont Grill?Houston's because we were craving some of the old favorites from the days Houston's was i Rockville. It did not disappoint.
I always enjoy the Spinach dip appetier and the steamed shrimp are good as well. The daily fish special usually has a crab meat topping in a light sauce which is wonderful. The baked potatoe is large enough to share and that makes for an excellent meal. They offer a number of the dishes that we enjoyed at Houston's and the serivce is always good. Brought back some wonderful memories of the old days in Rockville

“Beginning to end, delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Live jazz right when you walk in...I was excited from the beginning. Good idea to make reservations; we were a few mins late on ours and had to wait about 10 minutes until a table was ready--hostess said you still get priority. So we ended up getting a drink at the bar. Once at our table, we got the smoked salmon app (sooo good) and I had the seared tuna salad and the bf had bbq ribs which literally fell off the bone. Both dinners were outstanding which also our waitress, Emma, was great as well. She even helped us with where to go for after dinner drinks and entertainment. Don't pass this place up if you're in Bethesda!
