Description: A stylish & modern take on the traditional steakhouse, blending the ambiance of a contemporary restaurant with that of a vibrant cocktail lounge. We serve the best, top quality steaks from around the world - US Certified Angus Beef and Australian 'Kobe' and the grade A5 100% Japanese Wagyu - highest grade of beef in the world. Our menu is also very accommodating with several non-red meat options and different sized portions available. Great for an outing with friends, a business dinner, or a romantic evening on the town- 5A5 caters to those looking for outstanding food & service complemented by a fun & upbeat dining experience. 5A5 - 5 senses / the A5 experience

Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Took my beautiful girlfriend here and it was our first time. We absolutly loved it! She loved the service, the food, the atmosphere and the fact they acknowledge it was her birthday with a pretty happy birthday cake. Very nice service and we were very please. This is on the top of list of A+ restaurants.

“eh, not that notable”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We searched for a place to try on our business trip. We walked in without a reservation, the restaurant staff accommodated us but only within a 1.5 hr window of use of the table, we agreed.
We ordered a bunch of appetizers and 2 Rib eyes steaks. The waiter told us we didn't have enough time for preparation and consumption within our time frame and we were asked to pick something else. The NY Strip was tough, full of tendons and fat, totally unenjoyable, the egg on top was a total turn off. The waiter after we started eating told us not to rush as cancellations occurred. To be fair, the number of selections wasn't that great nor the variety. I can live with a bad meal, I just don't see what is all the fuss about this place. It was crowded and the chic patrons appeared to be happy, I would have chosen other establishments ahead of 5A5.

“GREAT place to celebrate a special occasion!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

We came to 5A5 to celebrate my husband's birthday and loved everything about the place.....the food, cocktails, atmosphere! The wait staff was completely attentive, friendly, and ready to get us anything we needed. Shrimp apps were delicious!!! Steaks were great....better than many of the upscale Steak Lounges in Houston. Be sure to get the truffle mac and cheese!!

“Meh….”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Was excited coming here for a group function and was disappointed. Service was slow - my soup was lukewarm at best and my pudding dessert very burnt on the top. Filet Mignon was ok but expected more given it IS a steak lounge. Unisex bathrooms not my kind of thing especially when it's so dark i can't even reapply makeup! Would not return….

“Good food but slow service”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Ate here on a business dinner. Place was vibrant. The food overall was good but the seafood was just ok but very good steak--well prepared and tasty. The sides were good especially corn and the mushrooms.
