I was a daily regular at the Houston’s up on the Pike. This place is not close even though they were owned by the same man. Woodmont is nice, not very good. Portions have gotten smaller, positive on the prime rib sandwich. My filet was...More

The Woodmont has a comfortable dinning area, friendly staff, and quality food. They attend to every detail from fresh ingredients to an inviting presentation.

We went here on a pre-theatre dinner, so we made the reservation for 5:45. Table was ready when we got there. It was a very hot day and for some reason the outdoor seating was closed--disappointing. The interior is VERY dark. The greeters were not...More

When looking for a good restaurant to dine with our grandson (a student at University of Maryland), we found the Woodmont Grill. Being long time fans of Houston's, we visited the Woodmont Grill numerous times. Food and service were excellent.

We were looking for a good restaurant around NIH... This Place Was Fantastic!! Hector's service was impeccable. He saw our Manhattan glass melting, so he brought a freshly, iced glass to transfer too. That never happens in any 5 star restaurant. Woodmont Grill was sooo...More

I’ve been eating here since this establishment was known as Houston’s and it still has the best of the old menu. I did notice however that the prices have certainly gone up since my last visit! The artichoke dip is $16 now. It’s still good,...More

It is a 6 min walk from the Bethesda metro stop (0.3 miles). They do have free parking if you drive. There is also public parking across the street for a fee.

After 50 years of trying, I believe it's impossible to get a great meal with good service on NYE anywhere. So we eat out on the 30th and enjoy a safe and delicious dinner at home on the 31st. With that said, I hope you can... More
