Great lunch with family! The bread bar was amazing! Portions are plenty - but I had no problem finishing every morsel of my perfectly cooked sirloin! Best French fries !

From the moment you enter, the genuine care for your dining experience is exceptional. You can either be taken to choose your steak or allow the expertise of your food attendant take care of that. Amazing, Relaxing, Calming dining experience. Absolute perfection for the end...of a long day. Taste of Texas can spoil me anytime. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR JOY!More

From the service (friendly waitress, picking out your steak yourself) to the really excellent food (I loved the jalapeno cornbread) this restaurant is is must-visit. The food was fantastic, the ambiance was fantastic, - I really had a great dinner here.

I always have my steak well done, most of the time it get overcooked but not here. It was just perfect, so tender and tasty. All steak came with a salad bar. I absolutely love the salad bar, it so fresh and so many choices...of homemade dressing to choose from. I topped my salad with bacon, dried tomatoes and roasted slices almond, then mixed 2 different dressings (vinaigrette and the green dressing) it made my salad out of this world. There's fresh bake bread and fresh cut up fruits as well. Party of 8, the bills is $533.00 (including $76.00 tip) We like our waitress so much we even add another 35 bucks cash for her)More

Giant establishment. All the servers are well trained and super attentive. Salad bar is super clean and well maintained. I think this steakhouse represents Houston. Love establishment service and food. Great wine selection. Questioning pricing but what ever. Two thumbs up!

Wonderful service, food, and celebration policies! We felt more than special! Definitely a must. They gave us a printed picture and my husband got to choose his desert as a courtesy

Its ok if you want a brightly lit dining room with over pushy service, and a mediocre salad bar. We went to several Steakhouses while we were celebrating our new year, this one made the not so good list. There are other great options. Vic...& Anthony's, Pappas, Steak 48,,,, good but not as great as the first two!More

Fist of all, let me say that the following review is not typical of our normal Taste of Texas experience. The service tonight was subpar. Our waitress was very inattentive and has I could careless attitude. We had to ask for the drink menu, and...when we ask if instead of a compound butter with our steak, if we could have Béarnaise sauce. We were told that was not an offering with our steak, only the filet. I told her that I bet if she ask, they would be happy to do it. She said she would ask, but no promises. Really, it is pre-made. It did arrive with the steak. One of our guests did order the filet and ordered it medium well. It came out and it was cooked to medium rare. Sent it back and when it returned it was still very red in the inside, still medium rare. Sent it back a second time and this time it came out well done. After the first send back, they would have offered to cook an entire new filet. The manager did come by and offer an apology and offer a free dessert. A nice jester. However, when the dessert tray was brought out we were told were could only choose from certain items. Not anything on the tray. Really????? Finally when the bill was presented I had my credit card sitting on my wallet, not in the bill cover. Without asking the server came by and picked up the bill and bill cover and again with asking grabbed my credit card off my wallet. For a bill of $143 for two I expect a lot more, like we have come to expect.More

We thought we would celebrate Christmas with friends over dinner at the world-famous Taste of Texas restaurant in Houston. We were informed by restaurant staff that we could make reservations online for December 24. However, the system would not allow us to reserve a spot...until 12:01 a.m. on December 10. So we set our alarm to remind us to sign up for a table at one second past midnight on December 10. We waited for the magic moment and as the clock struck midnight, we requested our reservation. The system informed us there were no available tables for our 6:00 p.m. request. In fact, the entire restaurant was booked up for the entire day but we were invited to join a waiting list. Now, in the bright daylight of the December 10 morning, we realize we are the butt of an early April Fool joke perpetrated by the world-famous Taste of Texas restaurant in Houston. How else could one explain the whole establishment being reserved all day within two seconds after midnight? You sure pulled one over on us and it was a good one Ed Hendee. We will not quickly forget it. Maybe we can return the favor soon.More

Prices are up, quality of food and service is down. It is just not worth it anymore. Used to eat there 5 to 6 times a year but no more after the last visit. There are options out there that better and less expensive. Its...just not what it used to be. What a shame.More

The attraction is provided by the name, very fitting in Houston, the location and the well decorated rooms. Everything else is disappointing: * prices are disproportionate to food quality * quality is not as reliable as it used to be, two of us also had...a potato soup and a creme boule that we would have returned if the waiter had paid any attention to us * service was poor, eat-pay-get out * the only Prosecco wine listed, the cheap quality La Marca brand that you find piled up at any Walmart, was priced at $ 60.00 The deserved reputation of the past has gone up in thick, expensive smoke.More

I ordered a single crab cake for $20 that arrived mushy and undercooked. Service was good; however our single 1/2 bottle of wine was priced at $50 for a domestic wine with a screw on cap. All their prices have increased 25% of more over...the last year, but gouging customers is never healthy for a restaurant. very disappointing!More

Visited here while in Houston for 3 day, it was one of our favourite steak restaurants in the world. We have visited a couple of times previous and had a 5 star experience. During the visit we sat at the bar for 30 mins and...the staff there were top shelf. We we’re then shown to the table and was introduced to our server. Service was poor he forgot a lot of our order he disappeared for long periods, he left all the empty glasses on the table when clearing. On delivery of our food the ribeye was cold and it took ages for him to return so we had finished our meals before our friend had any attention. Our friends meal took what seems ages to be sorted with no apology no sympathy or recourse it would have been nice for him to be offered a drink while waiting. Every time we have eaten here the standard has been top shelf but this time it was so disjointed. We would visit again just to see if the it was just a one off…More

The place is beautiful and the attention was good. It has a nice salad bar. We had two rib eyes, which were substandard (chewy and tasteless). It was very expensive, considering the steak quality.

Revisited after a long absence. We brought family from out of town to experience and they loved it. Food was good and the service was outstanding. Probably have to visit more often but those prices are not for the faint of heart.
