I literally would go to Houston's for the Strawberry Shortcake alone, it is phenomenal.
This is a great restaurant, it has a fantastic ambiance and the staff are efficient and friendly. They have a great selection. I have been on a few

What a disappointment when it comes to take out. The wait is often long so I called for take out and was told by a sugary sweet voice that I was more than welcome to order take out while I wait at the bar. Clearly a ploy to sell drinks

Pros: ribs, ahi tuna

I really like Houstons. The fact that the food is so consistent and that the value for the meat is so good keeps me coming back. My favorites are the ribs and the filet. My boyfriend loves the Tbone. We also always get the strawberry

Went to Houston's for our Anniversary last night, I remember this place had really good food! We ordered Cesar salad (which was the biggest joke). They brought us a salad with cheese "clusters" not shredded cheese and to top that off there

My husband and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. The only reason we came here is because we had a gift card, otherwise we wouldn??t have chosen this restaurant. We made reservations well in advance and confirmed them a few days before, yet we still ended up waiting over a half hour to be seated and the hostesses were very rude about it. The food was mediocre at best. We were pressured into ordering an appetizer even though I really wasn??t interested in one. The salad was awful. Don??t order the Caesar, because it tastes nothing like a Caesar should; it tasted like a Chinese salad. The steak was okay, but way under cooked from what I ordered. To top if off, they wouldn??t accept our gift card. They claimed that it had already been redeemed, but it hadn??t. Instead of accepting the mistake, the manager basically implied that I was a liar. I will never eat at this restaurant again, and I hope you won??t either. This was the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant in my life.

Pros: great ambiance when you first arrive

We usually sit at the bar when we go because it's always so crowded. Despite this, the food is always excellent and the service can't be beat.

The food is good. You pretty much are getting what you pay for, although it is always good and always reliable for a good steak. The french dip is great!

I'm really on the fence with this place, the food is good, but there's not a lot of variety, there are Ribs, Burgers, Chicken and Fish, all well prepared and tasty, but none of it is all that exciting. Once you've been there a few times

When you happen to get the right server, with the right cooks at the right time, Houstons can be a truly memorable experience. The one constant at Houstons is their wonderful environment and ambiance. It is definitely and upscale place.

I can tell you I have had just about everything on the menu and it is all good. The ribs are succulent, the burgers are just awesome! And the steak just doesn't get any better.

It seems a bit too dark/gloomy in there, but I guess its just me. The food excellent! Filet Minon, medium rare with a loaded potato. Can't go wrong with that, coupled along with a nice glass of wine, and some sweets at the end. They have great service here, the overall atmosphere is great, except for the drab lighting, and the occasional wait on the weekends, but all in all its a great place for a nice hearty piece of prime rib or a juicy chunk of filet.

PROS: food

Houston's has always had great service. Many of my friends have told me great stories of not only good service, but good recoveries when mistakes were made.

We once had a waitress who was a mindreader - she always seemed to be there when we needed her. Once time I stood up to go to the bathroom, and she came by and said, "are you looking for the restroom? It is over there."

The food is quite good too. I usually get the vegetarian burger, which is quite tasty. My friend's favorite is the knife-and-fork ribs which is extremely tender.

Expect huge crowds and long waits when you go here.

PROS: Good food, great service
CONS: Crowded!!

I heard the steak was very good there, but when I went, not only was all the food burnt, the service was horrible. We never saw our waiter and got our water 30 minutes after we were seated. I was really shocked at the lack of service that

Overall, the prices are a little high for pretty regular fare. There are a few extra special items to look for, most notably the skinny and crunchy french fries that are among the best around and the spinach dip. There is the possibility that you will get a little celeb sighting, as many Lakers players dine here (their training facility is in El Segundo).

I am not so sure this is new trend in restaurant that servers are having so lack of servicemen ship. Food is great. Freshness of fish and vegetable were always great. Steaks were always well prepared, but every time I visit this place,

WARM APPLE COBBLER. Save room. If feeling full stop and doggy bag it. You will want this dessert.

On the weekends make reservations, else plan to wait at least 45mins. But well worth the wait. I think they only take reservations for

The babyback ribs and the prime ribs are best in town. I've eaten at Lawrys which is supposedly known for their prime ribs and Houstons prime rib is ten times better. Their clam chowder is also one of the bests. They are always busy too,

Solid appetizers to choose from, but the main courses are bit slim. Was hoping to have more than one soup selection a day (wanted the Saturday soup, but it was only Friday). This location is often crowded, so I'd suggest sitting in the bar
