This restaurant has horrible customer service. From the beginning the hostess where rude and standoffish. I had to stand in front of the hostesses for nearly 5 minutes before I was acknowledged. This is completely unacceptable. A simple "be with you in a moment sir" should've been stated. We arrived at our reservation time, and waited over 30 minutes to... More

Not a big meat eater, but Laurenzo's prime rib is worth making the exception.Their level service is consistently excellent and is what measure other places by. We recently had family visiting from out of town who were craving the Houston experience in a relaxed, yet elegant atmosphere. Even though it was late and we had a baby, we were greeted... More

Great service, great food at reasonable prices, and great portions. The prime rib quesadillas are the best

Great food and super service. Plenty of parking. I highly recommend the prime rib. FYI - happy hour until 7 but only at the bar.

I have reviewed Lauenzo's before and dined there several times. It seems they have changed hands since El Tiempo is now listed om their menu. The menu is new and different. Parking ample and the service is good. But, the food is average and expensive. Same food flavors available for less and much better flavors available for the costs.

The specialty of the house is prime beef which I have had and recommend. This time I had the lasagna and the lunchtime serving was not only very good but was also extremely out sized and I probably had enough for two more meals in my take home package.

Have been here a few times in the past and ordered delivery from here, but this was by far the best meal I have had here. The queso was out of this world and love the mixture of flour and corn chips. We enjoyed the ribs, the pork tenderloin and the beef enchiladas. Topped off with fantastic key lime pie... More
