The only thing that differentiates this bar / restaurant from all the other standard ones, is the looks of the waitresses. If you fancy that over food, you are in the right place.

Showed up with a reservation, was appointed a table at 11:55. At 12:30 (35 minutes later), no one had come to the table to take our order, not even to greet us, despite 3 attempts to request for someone. Had to leave with our client to bring him for lunch somewhere else.

This is a nice, upscale bar/restaurant much like the (much better) version on Yonge St in Toronto. The service was efficient and friendly but the food was very mediocre - and not inexpensive. Disappointing: wouldn't return for a business lunch.

I wasn't expecting much from a steakhouse called "Houston" but I was presently surprised. The steak and sides were almost as good as what I get at home in Calgary. Great service, nice atmosphere.

Nice place recommended by hotel. Close by. Good food, great service. Delish drinks. Upscale, local club hangout. Steaks were done perfectly.

This was a business lunch. Montreal does this very well, normally, and the service was slick and efficient as expected. The food however was mixed. My companion's meal was good, however my risotto was bland and tasteless. Probably best avoided. This is a popular restaurant and bar, particularly in the evenings (I have been here many times for happy hour... More

We celebrated my friend's birthday at Houston after work. We could not hear each other because of the loud music. The dj has to realize that this is not a night club and that people want to talk. Everybody had to scream to be heard and it made it even noisier. I will organize future 5a7s somewhere else.

I hear it's good but the kitchen was closed when we arrived early evening. Serve staff was great and still found options for us to eat. Surprised to find they don't carry "Stella".

We arrived around 9:30 in the evening only to be told that the grill was closed so no steaks were available. Seemed kind of early for a restaurant surrounded by hotels. We settled for a sandwhich which was OK. May come back to try the steaks next year when I go back to Montreal

Staying in Quartier International

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention centre and retail space with a multi-coloured glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterise the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
