We always visit this Houston's when we are in the South Bay every year. It was perfect this week as usual. Kale salad, rotisserie chicken with a delicious couscous and a wonderful Petrale sole. I was just a tad disappointed that the sole was encrusted, I expected it to be very simple in butter and lemon -- but I had... More

I went here with friends last night (1/7/17) to celebrate our birthdays. The grilled trout was really good and the service was great. The only downside was that they charged us $12 for a cup of ice cream with some chocolate syrup and a candle in it. It was our birthdays for Pete's sake, what happened to a complementary small...

Great food, super service, every detail seems to be taken care of. Setting creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere. While waiting for the table, it is possible to see how do they take care of ingredients. Everything, and especially the meet. seems top quality. My companion asked for a "well done" burger. No repairs or comments, just delivered as requested... More

Wonderful experience! The staff was extremely professional, atmosphere was amazing and dining was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Reservations are highly recommended. We waited closed to an hour without reservations, although we were extremely pleased and it was worth the wait. We'll be back!

The pan fried sole is excellent. I also like the French dip. They will take reservations which helps on Friday or Saturday nights

The wait was too long with children, so we decided to order to go. After waiting 15 minutes, we were then told it was too late for orders to go!! Food here is usually great, but the service at the front door is terrible. If we would have been told about the timing on the to go order from the... More

I am a HUGE Houston's fan and experienced my first epic failure with them with regard to service. I have turned on dozens of people onto their French dip as it is the best I have ever had. Unfortunately, I wanted one to go before heading to LAX and was told they don't take call ins but the bartender would... More

A group of six of us landed in at the height of noon hour on a busy Saturday while in conference at the nearby Marriott. Staff were able to seat us immediately. Service was very fast and friendly. We'd let them know we had limited time, and they really worked to make sure that our meals were timely. The Thai... More
