I was hosting a client lunch whose office was across the street, so it was convenient and was recommended by the client. We were seated right away when we arrived at noon on a Monday. The service was good but the waiter forgot to bring my salad. I have no issue with servers who don't write down the orders, but... More

My husband and I ordered the cheeseburger. It was huge and really good. Most places cook their hamburger meat until it is completely dried out and tasteless. The waitress asked how we wanted the meat cooked, we said rare and it was rare! It was so flavorful and juicy. Our friend got the salmon and raved about it too. The... More

I never pass on a Houstons. It is my favorite of chain (though not a true chain!) restaurants. Hillstone Group delivers in this manhattan beach location. The dimly lit steakhouse is impeccably kept, with a large bar area and an adjacent dining room. The service is warm and unobtrusive. The pooled gratuity system allows patrons to be well cared for...

The food was spectacular! Pricey since we were in LA, but w well needed respite from out weary travels. The... More

The location is good, easy to to find, it is big enough to give you a table without having reservation. I would say this a "fine fast food" were you can eat and have a drink comfortable seated. Food is good as it is service but pricing is above the qualty, so if want to be sure check the menu... More

We've been going to Houston's for over 25 years. It always seemed like a friendly, good food and good value restaurant. I haven't been in one in over 2 years,but it didn't seem the same. The prices are up and the quantity is down. Not the same feeling. I wanted to visit, but I think that's the last time. Food... More

I was visiting LA and couldn't believe they had a Houston's! A Chicago favorite restaurant that has now closed. Food was excellent. I had the ribs, and they were juicy and tender. Spinach dip was really good. Served with warm Tortilla Chips, sour cream, and salsa. Other family members had the prime rib sandwich, as well as the Filet Mignon.... More

Dear Nicoley191, Thank you so much for your nice review and for visiting us during your trip to Los Angeles. While true that Houston's closed many years ago in Chicago, we hope you have had a chance to visit us at our sister restaurant, Bandera, on Michigan Avenue...they also serve the Spinach Artichoke Dip! There is no higher compliment than... More
