Visited with friends last night for my birthday dinner. It was our first visit to the property. We had reservations, so we were seated within 5 minutes, but there was a waiting list. Within 3-4 minutes of being seated, we had 4 different servers stop to say they would be helping us, but not a one asked if we wanted... More

As a designer I love and hate this place. Looks wise its perfect and it even looks like I designed it, in spite of the fact that I didn't. That said, it needs some sound dampening. the only drawback to Houstons is the ambient noise is high. Much higher than it should be for this high quality of food and... More

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!
