Houston's is a fabulous restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was lovely. If you go during fresh artichoke season, the char-cooked artichokes are delicious. My husband and I have eaten at Houston's a couple of times and every time was great.

Been many years since I've been to a Houstons. None where I've moved to in the Palm Springs area. Perfect place for one.
Was a frequent customer of their Century City Branch.
Everything was just as good recently in Pasadena. Food, Service and Environment. The steak was superb and perfectly cooked as were the Ribs, Pan Fried Fish & Burgers.
So good!!!

We eat at Houston’s fairly often and are always impressed by both the food and the excellent service. This time however we were very disappointed because they didn’t have a record of our reservation.

Since the was quite a line of people and the we were told the wait was at least a half an hour, we went to another if our neighborhood favorites. Luckily we didn’t have to wait there.

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 quietly moving among the booths.

Hovering on one might think of as the "heavy and dark" side of what F. Scott Fizgerald
called "expensive simplicity".

Living in a cluster of its Pasadena peers with such as Smitty's Grill, the Parkway Grill,
and the Arroyo Chophouse.

Expensive and highly recommended.

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 EXCELLENT. I wish all restaurants trained their wait staff the way Houston's does. My go to for special occasions.
