NOISE, NOISE, and more NOISE – Very, very, VERY NOISY, to the point that one could not converse with the person sitting directly across in the nice, well-lit booths. The thai steak salad was tasty with wonderful fresh herbs and spices, however, the meat had been over-marinated and was like mush. The salmon appetizer with toast points was smoky, tasty and moist. But the noise !!! I guess they want you to clear out quick and not linger. Have a mojito like we did (fresh mint and lime) will make you forget the place gave you a headache. The service is almost too intense and rushed. Great location by the Ritz-Carlton keeps prices and valet parking high.

Avoid this location – I have been dinning at Houstons for more than 20yrs and love it, BUT for some reason everytime I come to this location there is a problem. Last night was TERRIBLE and I will never come back to this store again. The service was poor, but the food was even worse! For the first time ever, I sent my dish back and and shared my husbands club salad while I waited. I have ordered (and shared) that salad for years and it was half the size that it should be, the dressing was globbed on top and not even tossed! The meat and avacado were not properly chopped and there was too much dressing. Not wonderful at all.. The dish that I ordered bad, and to make matters worse the manager never even came around to check on us. After paying our bill, I flagged him down but didnt get the impression he cared much. A HUGE disapointment!

Roomy banquettes and hefty portions typify this polished American grill that's popular for business deals and special occasions. – In Short
Burnished brass and stained wood complement roughly mortared brick and the occasional plant. Amid ubiquitous earth tones, corporate types and small parties (celebrating or simply living large) occupy deep booths done up in fine upholstery and lit from above by pin spotlights. Burgers, prime rib and steaks are the specialties of the house, but the menu also includes salmon, salads, pork chops and roasted chicken.

Go early to avoid the crowds. – Houston's is the greatest! What else can be said. I have enjoyed most of everything on the menu at some point since it has long been one of my favorite spots. Even when I go to NYC, I dine at Houston's in Manhattan.

Their fillet mignon is superb and the grilled chicken salad with peanut sauce is divine. My favorite dessert is the apple cobbler....ymmm. From the BBQ sauce to the appetizers, all I can say is, you can't go wrong. There is no bad food at Houston's. Service is great! Some of the higher priced restaurants could take lessons.

Love that Steak! – I am not real crazy about chain restaurants, but this is a great standard. I have tried filet mignon all over the city (thanks to a steak-loving ex boyfriend), and this is my favorite. It is so good that I don't even like to order anything else on the menu. Go all out and get it with a baked potato with butter and bacon - forget the diet for one night! :) Plus they offter to butterfly it and that way you have the option of taking 1/2 of your delicious filet home for lunch the next day - yum! Price is average (last I was there, around $25). Oh and I really like all the dark wood and soft lighting. The bar is a fun place too. Great drinks!

My all time favorite restaurant! – Where to begin... I began going to Houston's when I lived in D.C., and was thrilled to find one at the Biltmore when I moved to Phoenix. Houston's key to success is service and consistency. I have never been disappointed with their food, and I have been frequenting Houston's for more than ten years. My sister and I meet there every Thursday for lunch, so she can get the Tortilla soup. Everything on the menu is wonderful, so try different things! An item that is not on the menu, but is one of their best items is the Flying Chicken Platter. Lightly breaded (almost a tempura type breading) chicken, fries and cole slaw. It's a wonderful meal!

Arrive Early & Often for Wonderful Eats – Consistently excellent kitchen - everything's meticulously prepared and delicious. Not a hit and miss operation. Portions are generous- an exception is the tuna sliver in the seared ahi salad. Ask for a price on the daily "specials", typically fish like Arctic char, as they tend to be expensive (read:ripoff). Despite price creep, Houston's is still a very solid value. Service is businesslike and reasonably efficient - some young servers are rather stiff, intense. Go casual or dressy; it's so dark nobody cares. No reservations, so arrive early to avoid waits. Buzzy, classy, comfortable - one of my favorite spots.

Best burger hands down! – Once you've tried it, nothing else will compare! The fries are great too! They get busy though, so don't be surprised if there's a wait!

Dinner and a Movie at it's Finest! – Now adays, when I want to combine dinner and a movie, I go to Houstons and the theaters upstairs in the fashionable part of town. I don't see many families in this part of town, and lots of singles at the bar at Houston's so I am not the only one who sees it this way. Every meal I have had has been perfect, especially the steaks! The food is rich and the ambiance is a bit dark for my tastes, and I think that mixing this up with going to a dark theater right afterwards is a formula for falling asleep during the movie, but I am willing to risk that for really good food. Later in the evening, there is a long line, so get there early and go to an early movie.
