Parking can be tricky, but this restaurant never lets me down. Excellent service and the food is delicious. You can make reservations on Hillstone’s website. They own Houston’s, which is a chain, but it doesn’t feel like that at all here. The prime rib is...More

I have enjoyed dining here for lunch on several occasions now. Always a great meal. However, I believe the strength is a classic charm along with amazingly attentive servers. You feel like Dean Martin could walk in but was makes Houston's different old school establishments...More

Houston's is part of an extensive chain, but it exudes an almost fortress-like sense of old school dimly lit comfort. Club like in its ambiance. Food and drinks are excellent, with an open kitchen being visible on the south wall, and the bistro-formally dressed waitstaff...More

The food has always been great at Houston's. I was so excited that they brought their classic chicken fingers back! They may call it something else but that is what they were previously knows as. So yummy! The wine list is great. The service is...More

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
