I've lived around Bethesda my entire life. Seen lots of restaurants come and go. Woodmont Grill outshines most. Service and cocktails are great, the jazz trio takes the atmosphere up a notch. The veggie burger is my mainstay but specials and sides are always delicious!

We booked about 2 days before, this is because it gets pretty booked during the weekend and takes a while to get a table. The service was excellent and the food amazing!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting Bethesda !!

Dinner was absolutely delicious! We had the smoked salmon and cornbread/focaccia appetizers....fantastic! Then we ordered bbq ribs, the Thai steak and noodle salad and a veggie burger...for desert, apple cobbler! Every single thing was perfect!

My boyfriend and I went today based upon all of the glowing reviews. It was a slam dunk of a meal. I had their infamous Veggie burger and it was delicious and plentiful. I have half of it to eat later and I am thinking of finishing it off after this review. My boyfriend had the cheeseburger and said it... More

Woodmont Grill aka Houston's, remains one of the best restaurants in Bethesda. We highly recommend the grilled fresh fish specials, the grilled chicken salad, the seared tuna salad, the veggie burger, the ribs, the prime rib, and the spinach artichoke dip. Pretty much everything is excellent. Great service, great food, the only problem is how crowded it gets. Live Jazz... More

While there is a bar section, it is not big. Would not suggest taking a group for a happy hour here. This is more of a dinner place. I will say that the drink I had was good as was the service from the staff,

I was on a business trip in Bethesda and wanted a nice quiet dinner after a long day of meetings. I went in and it was a darker atmosphere with nightly live jazz music. I sat at the bar and the staff and patrons were all very friendly. From the wine selection to the dinner menu options it was difficult... More

Far be it for me to investigate a place before trying to dine there. I saw the word grill in the name of this place and thought it would be a casual environment with "grill-like" food and hope for the best with food quality. Boy was I surprised when I walked into the Woodmont Grill (formerly Houston's, which by the... More

We regularly visit Woodmont Grill when we visit our D.C. family. It is one of their favorite places! Their rack of ribs is an incredible feast; the soft-shell crab po' boy is what one of us can't wait to taste; the Chicken Club salad is one of my 2 favorites here! It is a salad of fried chicken with avocado,... More
