There are very few Houston's locations and whenever I am traveling in the vicinity, I always make a point to enjoy dinner here. It's worth the deviation and worth the wait. My dining experience was at the bar - as I was traveling solo for...business. This was my first time back since the start of the pandemic and while there was no longer any official "social distancing" happening, I like how the bar is now treated like a dining area and you don't have people crowding behind you trying to get drinks over your shoulder whilst you are enjoying your meal. Note that if you are also traveling solo, the seats at the bar are in twos, so you will get seated next to another solo traveler. However it's not so close as it feels like an intimate encounter. There is plenty of space for two strangers to sit side by side and not bump elbows, unless you want to of course. My meal was incredible and the service was attentive. Houston's is NEVER a disappointment.More

The food here was great, but the service was incredible. Emily was so kind and went above and beyond. I would go here again for sure.

Disgusting, we go there, after over 10 years of visiting, we were told that our party was too big, we offer that our party can split up and wait if they would like us to, however we are still rejected and told we cannot dine,...even thought their were tables free for us to use. this has emotionally really upset me that they don't serve their loyal customers with more respectMore

My husband and I went by for a nice weekend lunch after running errands all morning. When we arrived I placed our names on the waitlist and proceeded to the bathroom as he proceeded to wait outside. After leaving the bathroom, which was very dirty...and reminded me of a gas station rest stop I was approached by the hostess who advised we were unable to dine because my husband's orthopedic shoes weren't accepted. After looking around at other guest who had beachwear and sandals I questioned why we were being singled out and expressed our discomfort. The front desk hostess Nageli was very nonchalant and non-empathetic towards our issues and continued saying this was the policy. Not once was an apology issued or mentioned for bringing it to their attention about other guest with the same attire dining. Instead I was horrified to overhear her say "This is why we don't want those type of guest here". I have contacted the general manager and corporate about this issue but wouldn't be surprised if nothing is done since they are claiming his shoes were "too casual for the dining room" . Warning others not to waste your money or time on establishments who focus on profiling guest and creating a atmosphere which isn't welcomed to everyone. I WILL NEVER EAT AT THIS LOCATION EVER AGAIN, they DISCRIMINATE, PROFILE, and probably would prefer BLACK PEOPLE not dine there at all. I would rather drive farther to spend my money somewhere where I'm welcomed.More

A popular, upmarket location for a business lunch and for friends catching up - best to reserve. Our server, David was efficient and friendly. The pork chip was enough for two people (leftovers for me) and the trout good but not much different from salmon....We had a glass of wine each to enjoy with the meal.More

This restaurant is super famous and very important, the quality of the service is impeccable, but we have a problem they removed the baked potato from the menu at noon, I am sure that the decision has cost them many problems with the clients and...also with the attention received, The question is how long will this bad decision last?More

My husband and I decided to venture out for dinner to Houston’s with our 8 month old baby boy. I’ve had an almighty fear of going out to a restaurant with the baby, so this was quite a big step for me. We had just...sat down, ordered our food & my son let out an excited scream. Before I knew it the hostess was over at our table. She wanted to check that everything was okay & to let us know that if the baby continues to make noise she will ask us to step outside with him. I was (and still am) in shock at such a comment. My husband and I felt very unwelcome in the restaurant & I felt very stressed knowing that I now had to keep my son completely quiet, otherwise we faced being banished outside. Of course, if he had been screaming / crying I would have taken him outside on my own accord. I don’t need to be told this. Anyway, it was certainly not a cheap meal. And in hindsight I really wish we hadn’t bothered…More

We have eaten at Houston’s for many years and it was always excellent. Well not anymore. Most of the customers do not wear face masks . Most of the staff do not wear face masks. We watched staff cleaning tables and no antibacterial sprays were...used , the table was just wiped with a napkin. The service is shocking and there is a total disregard for the COVID situation. We will not return.More

This is a regular for us! Came here for lunch after a business meeting with some colleagues. We were seated fairly quickly as we were off hours…. That was nice!!! I think I’ve had the best service ever in Houstons by Tammy!! Thanks Tammy… very...competent and pleasing, never had that before, don’t get me wrong, have had some pretty good service, but this one exceeded expectations. We had the smoked salmon as appetizer and you cannot go wrong with this plate, savory, perfectly smoky, tender… also had the spinach dip which is a classic here and a Kale salad which is awesome… As a main course, I had the French dip au jus that was maybe the best I’ve had here!! Juicy, medium rare, tasty and simply amazing…. Order the horse radish “real” and not the creamy one… The rest of the table also had great food and one that stood out were the pork chops!!! One last point, the ice tea is very good!!! Tasty, flavorful and has the power that I look in a good ice tea. All in all, this place is recurring for me. CheersMore

No better spot to grab din. Only be prepared to wait generally busy which is always a good sign. Alternative is to sit at the bar Ashely is amazing friendly and fast. My go to is the spinach dip it is INCREDIBLE!! Or the Tuna...mango avocado salad. Honestly everything is delicious and fresh here. It is one of my go to. Thank you Ashely and Houstons see you next week!More

We did our plans for the day, considering a late lunch at houston’s north miami, and when we arrived they told us their new stupid policy that they can’t accommodate a table for a party of 5.

Houston’s is one of my favorite restaurants but this last time I went there I had the unpleasant surprise that they changed the awesome Thai noodle salad and now you can’t have it with steak which in my opinion was the best part of the...salad, you can order it with chicken or vegetarian but it wasn’t the same. Everything else’s was great as usual I really recommend the spinach dip and the brownie. I hope they put the stake back on the salad!!More
