My husband, son, myself and three of our very close friends dined at Houston's on 1/12/2019 to celebrate my husband's 68th birthday. Initially, it was generally a positive dining experience, although they did try and rush our ordering and eating. While we were close to...More

We’ve been going to Houston’s for a few years now, and can say this place never disappoints! We consistently have a wonderful experience. Awesome atmosphere, the friendliest and most attentive staff, and an incredible prime rib. Also, they make a ‘perfect’ vodka martini with freshly...More

Lovely ambiance and not so noisy you can't have a conversation. Waitstaff friendly and attentive. Special touches like hot hand towels appearing at the table after the slightly messy artichoke appetizer. Large portions of tasty food ranging from burgers to prime rib. My husband gave...More

Reservations definitely recommended. We both ordered the same thing ... The artichoke starter and the Hawaiian steak for main. The artichoke starter probably needs no introduction, but it was absolutely delicious. If they have them, definitely worth ordering. The Hawaiian steak was delicious and tender....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
