Diner Reviews
  • "Our food was very good; the steaks were especially flavorful and cooked as ordered. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the wines. Only complaint was a watery martini even with just two ice cubes. All in all, we enjoyed our evening and will return."

  • "Finally broke down and tried this place, and I'd driven by it a lot. The food was very good. interesting twists to normal steak and some different cuts of meat. I highly recommend trying this place. Service could have been a little more attentive."

  • "Went here Saturday for date night. We read a review in The Week magazine over a year ago, and have been wanting to try it ever since. We were not disappointed. The service was great and the food was very good. We ordered a bottle of wine, which was priced well and delicious. We shared the steak for 4 -- cooked perfectly and so tender. We ordered the queso fundido and the carpaccio for appetizers and they were both excellent. The 4 salsas they provided we are terrific, too. And we finished with Tres Leches, yum!"

  • "The steaks were excellent. It is unusual to have pinto beans with a steak, but it is a Mexican steak house. The beans were seasoned exceptionally well."

  • "First of all, my girlfriend and I have never been to this restaurant before and we were blown away by the atmosphere and service that we recieved. We recieved a delicious complimentary appitizer by either the manager or owner. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is wanting a fine dining experience. "

  • "Mother's Day lunch was superb. I was vacillating between enchiladas and steak, and was thrilled to see they are offered in one dish. The sauces are divine. The only flaw was that the waitress forgot to bring my wine for the steak, even after we reminded her. When she finally brought it, I had finished what I was going to eat of my steak. In her defense, we think she had too many tables to tend to; management should have had more wait staff."

  • "Our whole party (5) enjoyed our meal. The trip from Vidor and La Porte was well worth the trip. The waiter was fantastic! We asked to recommend most everything we ordered and he was spot on every time! Not something we could do every weekend, but will definitely be going back for special occasions. "

  • "I love La Casa del Caballo! The steaks have a fantastic, wooded flavor. The enchiladas and various salsas are awesome. They also provide a nice starter of cheese and meats, on the house. A reasonable wine list with very fair prices. The inside is beautiful. I can't say enough about this place."

  • "We took a out of town guest to La Casa del Caballo and they were very impressed with the food and service. When the waitress discovered that our guest was from out of state she brought a round of complementary champagne. Steaks were the best that I have had in a long time."

  • "This was our second time and we were not disappointed. The food, ambiance and experience was excellent again. Will be back soon. Have to disagree with others comments about the potatoes. These fluffy on the inside and just-right crisp on the outside potato bites provide a wonderful balance to the awesome flavors the rest of the meal is slamming on your palate. Can't go wrong with any meal choice. Just pick something and you'll enjoy your food."

  • "Having eaten there before, my son wanted to go to La Casa del Caballo for his birthday. He didn't want to consider any other restaurants, as "he wanted a really good steak". We weren't disappointed!"

  • "On Friday night, I was out with my parents and we decided to head down because they had never been before. They were extremely impressed!! The restaurant had wine that my Step-father can't usually find and all of our steaks were perfect. My Mum lived the veggies too. Our waiter was fantastic and we just had an overall awesome experience. Will be coming again! Thank you!! "

  • "My wife and I spent our 1 yr. anniversary at La Casa del Caballo and were glad we did! I called ahead and the restaurant made special arrangements for us and went out of their way to make the night extra special. The wait staff was great and the food was exceptional. We will definitely be back. "

  • "My experience at La Casa del Caballo was wonderful! The ambience was very nice and quiet and the wait staff were very helpful and attentive. The only difficulty I had was choosing what to eat! Though the menu is small there is a nice variety, something for everyone. After finally deciding on the mole enchiladas I was not disappointed! They were wonderful, probably the best I have had (more on the sweet side, not spicy)! Also try the shrimp cocktail, you only get 3 but they are huge! I will surely be back just to try the steak!"

  • "Definitivamente uno de los mejores lugares de cortes de carne en Houston. Lugar muy tranquilo y el servicio de los meseros y del Capitan son excelentes. Un lugar al que vale la pena regresar mas de dos veces! "

  • "I reserved a table here to celebrate the birthday for a close family friend. The service was very good. The wine list is not extensive, but the moderate prices made up for the limited selection. We had a variety of dishes, a rib-eye, the specialty carnita, chicken enchiladas and salads. The salads were quite good, but servers should warn about the size ... the regular size can feed 3 moderately hungry adults. My only complaint was about the side dishes. The potatoes were really uninspired. Basically just plain cooked potatoes. No spice, no interesting method of cooking, just blah. I advised the waiter that they the potatoes should be rethought ... because they diminished the meal significantly."

  • "Not what we were expecting. Very disappointed. Food was not exciting. It was ok but for the price I expected more. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Service was attentive by our main waiter but we did have to ask for water. Waiter happily agreed to split the chopped salad, which was a good thing as it was quite large. I got a halibut special that was very well cooked. I really enjoyed the flavor of the fish and cilantro sauce. The Mexican rice and grilled veggies on the side were also quite tasty. My husband didn't fare so well. His steak was quite rare even though he asked for medium rare, the the potatoes were uninspired. "

  • "My wife (who is Japanese) has incredible intuition at picking places out of thin air. This restaurant had a 3-4 line mention in Texas Monthly and she picked it. Great pick! We were surprised that the place is not more packed given the outstanding steaks - best we have had in years. "La Casa del Caballo" is is doing TRUE innovation. "Mexcian Steak Restaurant" Huh? This is not one of the officially approved "Foodie" categories. However, it works VERY well. Service was outstanding and everything was outstanding, from the hand-stirred margaritas and the complimentary appetizers, to the simple but beguiling soups, through awesome steaks, to the wonderful tres leches cake. We loved it! "

  • "We were stopping over in Houston as part of our honeymoon and friends recommended La Casa del Caballo. They were absolutely right! Our waiter really knew his food and clearly articulated the difference between the various cuts. Taking his advice, we started off with Queso Fundido and this was indeed a special, well prepared dish. We then went for their special cut, Cañita de Diezmillo Asada. This was very tasty and it was exactly as the waiter described it to us: very similar to tenderloin, but with a slightly more "meaty" texture. The suggested wine also matched very well. The owner (who had offered us an aperitif on the house to celebrate our honeymoon) stopped by for a chat - really nice. All in all a highly recommended place to dine!"

  • "This has become a favorite spot fora great steak, and a nice bottle of wine! The meats are always tender, smokey, and the portions are large. This place is great and should not be missed."

  • "I had heard about the restaurant on the radio, and read some other reviews. Booked reservations for my 2nd wedding anniversary. From the time we walked in till the time we walked out, the staff made us feel like we were their only customers. I had the center cut rib eye which was cooked exactly the way I like it. My wife had the snapper with lump crab meat and shrimp as big as my fist. Also had the queso fundido as an appetizer, which I highly recommend. Will certainly be coming back soon, but this time with a group of 6 as I want to the 4 lbs. rib eye cap that is slow cooked for 45 min."

  • "We enjoyed another meal at La Casa Del Caballo. We had the CAÑITA DE DIEZMILLO ASADA and Pollo en Salsa Chipotle. They were both excellent. The restaurant was busier than the last time we dined here, so I am happy to see they are growing. Clearly the owner has spent time and money to execute his vision in Houston. The service is friendly and the food enjoyable."

  • "I have been to La Casa several times. The steaks are consistently the very best in town, or a lot of other places anywhere. The service on the evening of Friday, March 28th was not optimal. There was confusion between the servers, greeter, etc, has to who handled the drink order. It took a long time for the drinks and the water we requested to come out. Seemed very disorganized. But, again, food is great!"

  • "Went here for my boyfriend's birthday and WOW! I am incredibly satisfied and pleased with everything about this restaurant! The service was extremely friendly, polite, and made you honestly feel the way you are supposed to be treated. I found this place by googling steakhouses in the Houston area, and after trying several places out, I wanted to try somewhere different. This restaurant really called out to me. The steak was absolutely perfect. We loved how perfectly cooked it was (medium well for Her, and medium rare for Him) and the taste of the wood. WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK AND RECOMMEND."

  • "We ate at Casa del Caballo on a Tuesday night. Not crowded at all. Food was awesome, especially the brisket. Service was slow, and the waiter completely forgot to bring my wife's coffee with her dessert. He wasn't apologetic, either. I'll give them a second chance, but I expect better service at a restaurant in this price range."

  • "Too expensive for just average food... $40 for a piece of halibut...$20 for chicken enchiladas would be ok if they were outstanding but sadly neither was"
