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

I love Houston's restaurants - they are my favorite. I visit the Santa Monica and Pasadena locations frequently, and have visited out-of-town locations like New Orleans while on vacation. That said, I understand that there can be a wait during peak hours but I hated the reception I got at this location. We arrived at 6pm and were told to... More

We always visit this Houston's when we are in the South Bay every year. It was perfect this week as usual. Kale salad, rotisserie chicken with a delicious couscous and a wonderful Petrale sole. I was just a tad disappointed that the sole was encrusted, I expected it to be very simple in butter and lemon -- but I had... More

I went here with friends last night (1/7/17) to celebrate our birthdays. The grilled trout was really good and the service was great. The only downside was that they charged us $12 for a cup of ice cream with some chocolate syrup and a candle in it. It was our birthdays for Pete's sake, what happened to a complementary small...

Great food, super service, every detail seems to be taken care of. Setting creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere. While waiting for the table, it is possible to see how do they take care of ingredients. Everything, and especially the meet. seems top quality. My companion asked for a "well done" burger. No repairs or comments, just delivered as requested... More

Wonderful experience! The staff was extremely professional, atmosphere was amazing and dining was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Reservations are highly recommended. We waited closed to an hour without reservations, although we were extremely pleased and it was worth the wait. We'll be back!
