Waited over 3 hours for a table for 12 and finally got our seats near closing time. We were split into two different groups on different tables not even next to each other. Why did we wait over 3 hours then? Food wasn't even that great. Just overpriced. Horrible!

Called and made a reservation for 6 adults, and "baby". We were never told anything about this restaurant not having high chairs. Showed up on time for our 6:30 reservation after battling a horrible parking issue (no spots) for 15 minutes in the restaurants lot to be told that the restaurant did not provide high chairs. Had I known that,... More

I was on the West Coast for work and chose Houston's for one of my client lunches. I am so glad that I did! The wait staff was friendly ( Thanks Abby), the tables were spacious, and my meal was fantastic (Spicy Tuna Roll Salad). I also had a customer service experience that I was extremely pleased with. After walking... More

I've lived in Pasadena for some time now. Old Pasadena has many restaurants and most of them are pretty reasonable. However Houstons still offers the best bang for your buck across the board. The decor is acceptional (contemporary craftsman) the service is always on point and the food is consistently good. The one time the food came a little later... More

I eat here a couple of times a year. My wife likes well done stake, they usually get it right without burning it. The sides are also good.

Was in LA area for a day and had another craving for steaks and a lot of time to kill before my Long Haul flight. Heard a lot about this place, so I tried to make a reservation and was fortunate to get a reservation. Even though we made a reservation, we will had to wait a good 20 minutes... More

We were in town for the Breeders Cup and had an excellent experience on Friday evening after a day at the races. We made a reservation for 8:00 pm, they were super busy, we waited 15 minutes to be seated but were all given a large complimentary glass of wine. Our server was incredible, she was genuinely pleasant and patient.... More

I stopped in while running errands, hoping to just have a drink in the bar area. The bar and surrounding tables were packed at 3:30P! So I was seated at a dining table. Requested an apple martini, wait staff returned stating unable due to lack of some if the ingredients. Asked for a margarita, blended....unable, no blender. Asked for a... More

I thought I would beat the crowds on Saturday by arriving early for dinner. No such luck... wait was still in the 40 minute range. After eating there, I could understand why though - the food is absolutely amazing. Highly recommended!

I visited the Bar counter at Houstons because I was alone. To my left was a gentlemen waiting for a togo meal. He was drinking Scotch or was it Whisky? I ordered my regular glass of Cabernet and decided on a Thai Fillet salad. Much to my surprise this salad was magnifi. A must have. As I ate and chatted... More
