On business and flying solo, came here for dinner. I was very impressed with the looks of the restaurant, the level of service, and the quality of the food. It was very crowded and with good reason. Locals in Pasadena know what a quality eatery...More

I ordered the Hawaiian steak. Steak cooked medium well was neither tender nor juicy. I could have used a sharper knife. There was nothing uniquely Hawaiian about the steak. I did notice a hint of soy sauce which I felt would make it more of...More

We did not have a reservation and had to wait over 45 min on what seemed to be a busy work day crowd. The place was packed - obviously a popular place. Food was good, limited options for vegetarians. The grilled asparagus was really good.

We came for Mothers Day, with a reservation where I specifically said we have 15 month old twins. No high chairs, which means there was no way we were going to be able to enjoy our meal. Staff was indifferent...manager said, 'High chairs are unhygienic."...More

The food, from a somewhat limited menu, is good and the service excellent. The particularly good deal is- no corkage charge for the first 2 bottles. The negative...they do not take reservations, so, unless you arrive REALLY early for dinner, you may have a wait...More

I haven't been to Houston's in quite a while but, after going there for lunch today with my sweetheart, we won't be back. She ordered the bread basket, in which the focaccia bread had an inedible salted crust. Her Thai salad's pepper sauce was so...More

We took our son and his fiancee to dinner to celebrate his birthday. The food was excellent!! The steaks were done to perfection, the creamed spinach was the best we ever had! The only drawback was a mix up in the delivery of our dinner,...More

I have been back several times since last review and every time is wonderful. I have now switched over to rhe ribs and couldn't be happier. This place is worth a trip across town.

The menu seems limited - a one page menu where other restaurants at the same level will normally have 5 pages or more. However, what they lacked in quantity and variety was more than made up by the quality of the menu offerings. The steaks...More

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
