You sense the great atmosphere as you walk down the stairs but then are greeted by the snippy hostess who acts like she's doing you a favor by taking your name. We were seated within the 15 minute promised wait time and the server appeared immediately. We ordered drinks but waited quite some before they arrived. They don’t serve bread. Dinner arrived in a timely manner but we were almost finished eating it by the time the requested butter, ketchup and second round of drinks appeared.

Tucked away below Barnes and Noble on Third Avenue Houston's offers a good atmosphere and excellent service. The New York Strip is good value: aged for better taste and accompanied by a loaded baked potato. Desserts are death by sugar.

We had a great time at Houston's, I took one of my clients there and they have a very nice lunch. The service there was excellent.

Their burgers are good and they better be at $ 14 !! Now the ribs are good but you use to get 2 slabs at $28 but now you pay nearly $30 for 1 slab !!! Hit other rib places for a better value.

I have lived in 5 major cities across the country. 4 out 0f 5 had Houstons. And consistently the bet veggie burger I have ever tasted. I have converted meat eaters to this dish. IF you want to spice it up a little ask them for a side of honey mustard, trust me!!!

Everything about Houston's is great. But I think it would be even more terrific if the prices were a little lower. It's really pricey for a dinner out.

Houston's is a great "go to" place - it's consistently good, big food with great service, so you don't feel like you just got swindled by another pricey mid-town trap. And there's something for everyone. Went this week with my boyfriend, and his cousin from out of town...spinach dip is super yummy. For mains, one of them got steak (with pineapple glaze and huge baked potato - "this is awesome"), one got crab cakes ("these are the best I've had in a long time"), and I got the Vegetable Platter - which is actually varied, filling and super tasty. This time it was tomatos, steamed broccoli, sweet and russet potatos, cous cous and red cabbage with goat cheese and two huge buttery slices of grilled bread. Their veggie burger which I've had on other occasions is AWESOME as well, maybe best in NYC. Apple cobbler for dessert was waaaay sweet and too intense for me - the three of us couldn't even finish it! Also they had a live jazz band that night, so it was chill atmosphere. Sure its a chain but who cares? It's reliable and always better to surpass excpectations and be worth the value, than be disappointed at a trendy place.
