Always enjoy Houston's. The Rib-eye is great, baked potatoes and old fashioned are always on point. Service at Houstons is always 5 star.

I can't say enough about this place. It is always consistent, always good. The atmosphere is unique - it's dark but I like it. The service is fantastic. They have so many staff members there helping that should you need anything, there is always someone close by to assist. I am a martini drinker and I just love the fact... More

I met up with friends and family for lunch at Houston's in Pasadena. Years ago Houston's was one of my favs in New Orleans, so I was excited to check this one out. I know LA is reservation centric so I went online of a 12:45 PM show time. The parking at the restaurant is a bit challenging but I... More

I wrote a glowing review about this specific restaurant location a year ago. On our visit this week, we went mid-afternoon, so there were plenty of open tables. We were immediately offered a table in a dark corner closest to the restroom, my biggest restaurant pet peeve. When I refused, the hostess offered another table in the same area. This... More

Waited over 3 hours for a table for 12 and finally got our seats near closing time. We were split into two different groups on different tables not even next to each other. Why did we wait over 3 hours then? Food wasn't even that great. Just overpriced. Horrible!

Called and made a reservation for 6 adults, and "baby". We were never told anything about this restaurant not having high chairs. Showed up on time for our 6:30 reservation after battling a horrible parking issue (no spots) for 15 minutes in the restaurants lot to be told that the restaurant did not provide high chairs. Had I known that,... More

I was on the West Coast for work and chose Houston's for one of my client lunches. I am so glad that I did! The wait staff was friendly ( Thanks Abby), the tables were spacious, and my meal was fantastic (Spicy Tuna Roll Salad). I also had a customer service experience that I was extremely pleased with. After walking... More

I've lived in Pasadena for some time now. Old Pasadena has many restaurants and most of them are pretty reasonable. However Houstons still offers the best bang for your buck across the board. The decor is acceptional (contemporary craftsman) the service is always on point and the food is consistently good. The one time the food came a little later... More
