This place does food and service well consistently. The decor is welcoming and makes you feel like dining in style in an upscale restaurant. We started with some bread and tomato bisque soup and drinks. For the main we had the Asian steak salad, grilled salmon, and ribeye steak. All three dishes were very tasty and prepared well. For dessert we had coffee with hot fudge cake with ice cream. Service was great as we were attended to with both prompt professional and friendly service.
We had a wonderful experience at Houston's. For starters, we were a walk in ground of three and our wait time was estimated at 30 minutes. As you are waiting they have a waitress come and take a drink order so even though you are waiting for your table, you are still getting service. Sitting with a drink next to the indoor Koi pond was something that you just don't see in a typical restaurant. We waited maybe 20 minutes before getting ushered to our table. Once we got to the table, the wait staff came by with fresh, cold cocktail glasses and poured our drinks into the new chilled glasses. This is something that I have never seen done, and I quite like it. For starters, we got the Grilled Artichoke and the Spinach and Artichoke dip (both are must haves). My dinner was the Dings Crispy Chicken Sandwich. This absolutely exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be getting that again. For desert we had the sundae which was good, but your standard desert. End of the day, I would choose to eat at Houston's over many of the options in the area.
$222 without tip meal for 3 , two steaks, pork ribs, two salads, chilli soup, 8 dollar bread. Excellent experience , service and food, cooked to perfection steaks. Worth the 1.5 hour wait on Saturday arriving at 5:30pm. Desert was apple, walnut cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Plenty of free parking, dark interior for a romantic meal. Brandon K. Was top notch, helpful, professional and attentive. Thank you Brandon
This is an amazing place to come and eat, 5 stars no doubt! My girlfriend and I were looking for a place that serves artichokes in the Pasadena area and came across Houston's Restaurant through google search. When we arrived the host was very helpful and helped get us set up on the waitlist. Once we got notified that our table was almost ready we came in to check in and wait, then another host came to ask if we would like to order some cocktails while we waited, which we absolutely loved. Shortly after receiving our drinks we were walked over to our table and from the moment we were sat to the moment we received the check we received the most amazing service. Our waiter Karla was very professional and always attentive. She made our Dinner Experience very memorable, we will definitely be coming back again. The Artichokes were very delicious as well as the rest of the food and the cocktails.
Upscale restaurant in Pasadena that always has delicious food, there is another one in Santa Monica as well. Starting from amazing soups, sushi and salads to delicious burgers steaks and fish. Best french fries not be missed. Great and professional service . Atmosphere is cozy with dimmed lighting and its always a bit chili inside so do bring a jacket with you.
