Diner Reviews
  • "If you want a good steak this is the place they make it exactly how you order it."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "I went w/my friend for dinner and I ordered a bowl of clam chowder and mixed green salad while he had a prime rib dinner. Our waiter automatically splited the prime rib dinner and charged us a split plate fee. First, my friend never requested to split and it was awkward when the server brought two plates. We didn't make it a big deal until there was a charge on the bill. When we confronted the waiter why the charge and the menu doesnt show that. He said he gave us a bigger sweet potato and I didn't even eat/want that. He removed it but 'lectured' us since it's common practice that. I was furious when I heard that statement but didnt want to argue. Always meet your customers' requirements! We will not return."

  • "French Dip was great the first 1 time I was there, Second time it was just ok, Meat was rare causing very "mushy" texture so this time I decided on the Prime Rib Wrap. Again it was good, Portion was a good size and the Clam Chowder was excellent."

  • "My friend and I ordered the beet salad because we love beets, it did not disappoint. Great dressing and a nice mix of melon, spinach, and endive with some candied walnuts, quite a treat! My friend next had the shrimp sandwich which she enjoyed, while I had the beef noodle salad. I really liked the salad, but I think it would have been improved with a little something to "kick up" the noodles, as Emeril would say. The desserts were fabulous. Our waitress was nice and unobtrusive. Only there when you needed her, as I like it. All in all, very pleasant experience!"

  • "Food is good but prices are way off the mark unless your using groupon/living social/other for what you get. Nice family or business dinner place. Half off bottles of wine on Monday night(your only paying 2x actual bottle cost) is a decent deal"
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "This is an great place for a business lunch, or if you want to catch a bite solo, pull a seat up to the bar and watch a little TV and enjoy a great meal. I usually do the latter, but recently I took a group with me and they all really enjoyed to choices. The soups are awesome and you gotta try the cream corn. You can thank me later."

  • "Already making plans to head back in early September for Prime Rib. The Shrimp BLT is the bomb."

  • "We decided to take advantage of Houston Restaurant Weeks and try out Laurenzo's Restaurant. We were definitely pleased with all aspects of our first time experience there. We will return again and have already recommended this restaurant to family and friends. Great staff, great food and great ambiance."

  • "8/12/14 Good timing..Houston Restaurant Week...Our waiter (Mark Anthony) was always there, yet unseen. Very friendly, fun, he let us take our time ..Food was wonderful & portions were large. I've been coming since you opened & each time has been wonderful."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Great HRW lunch menu. Shrimp BLT had enormous shrimp, perfectly cooked. Thai salad was tasty. Italian cream cake was chock-a-block full of nuts and delicious. Only off note was strsnge texture of what tasted like uncooked brownie batter. Service on a busy Sunday lunch with many a large group was perhaps the most attentive Iin town. My mom had never been here...she'll be back!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The service was excellent! The prime rib is the best I've had in Houston, will definitely go again."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Laurenzo's, and we were looking for someplace a bit upscale that wouldn't break the bank. Although their steak prices are on the very expensive side ($45+ except for some of the prime rib choices), the rest of the items we ordered were priced reasonably and everything was very tasty. Our service was absolutely impeccable and attentive. The wine list was extensive, and the bar was well stocked. I can see this becoming a favorite place for my wife and I, and best of all, it fits every occasion from casual to dressy."

  • "We went for Restaurant Week, and everything was delicious! Our server was very attentive and the restaurant is very nice for a special occasion."

  • "Everything was perfect - the food, our waiter (Mark Anthony), the beverages. It is a bit pricey, but worth it."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Our server Dago was very friendly and attentive. The food was served promptly and drinks refilled as needed. All 3 or our entrees were delicious! The shrimp was fresh and tasty. My dad said this was the best meal he has had in a long time. The fish was fresh and salad was prepared just right. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. It was very clean and a comfortable place to dine."

  • "My husband and I love this place. We nearly always get the surf & turf, as their preparation of the filet is reliably flawless and who doesn't loved a grilled lobster tail?! We decided to get something different: I ordered the carpaccio and a grilled artichoke. Tender thin sliced filet seasoned nicely (including an orange note) beneath peppery arugula with chunks of parm, all finished with a hint of olive oil and balsamic--heavenly!!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "laurenzos is busy and a bit going on but the service is wonderful.. lots of choices -my beet salad was outstanding the carpaccio was good but nice paper thin as it should be-we all enjoyed our meal-the brunch is a deal and really special"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Went for HRW. Had the gumbo, fish and chips, and the pork carne asada. Teenager had prime rib (not on HRW menu). Spouses carne asada was cool, we pointed it out, and they replaced it with a fresh meal (instead of microwaving it!!!). And, they comped us a desert too."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "All of their food is fantastic, but they do have the best prime rib in Houston! Service is always top notch as well."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We have been to Laurenzo's for lunches and for dinners. The service is always attentive, the food is really delicious with ample serving size for the price. Good sports bar ambience without being so obnoxiously loud a conversation cannot be enjoyed. Quickly becoming one of our favorites."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "It dfefinitely was not as fancy as we thought it would be, so put on a nice shirt and some jeans for this casual spot. The prime rib and filet mignon were good. The service was great, very attentive staff and I would definitely return."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I would compare laurenzos to a Saltgrass. Their "best prime rib in Houston" is only decent. It's not worth $46 for 12 oz. I would pay $30 at most for it. This place is expensive because of location and that's it. The food is not worth the price. Is it good? Yeah sure, but is it "$50 steak" amazing? Not a chance. Save your money and go to Saltgrass. Or take that $50 and go get unlimited steak from fogo de chao. That's a better use of your $$."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Made reservations.. Got there for Happy Hour... No Happy Hour bar menu as we were told; steaks extremely over priced and you have to pay for a salad; we also inquired about bread.... and was told you have to request bread??? We decided to leave and not stay for dinner."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Went to Laurenzo's for a birthday dinner with a medium sized group. Service and food was excellent. The manager came by multiple times to check on our experience and the entire staff was very friendly upon arriving and leaving."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We had seen the restaurant many times. We and another couple like to try new restaurants about once per month. We made reservations for a Saturday night. Initial reaction was 1, the parking lot is small and 2, with many hard surfaces in the restaurant, it was often difficult to hear conversation at the table. The wine list was adequate. The wait staff is very polite; however our waiter was not as knowledgeable about the menu as we expected. Two of our four ordered 'pork chops' that were 'off-menu.' When the entrée was brought to the table all four of us commented that we'd never seen pork chops like that. They were lamb chops. The other entrees were good. Dessert was so-so. Price was about $80 per person with tip"

  • "I have eaten at this resturant several times and it's always the same issue. Service a bit slow...no one approaches you when seated at table. Takes wait staff about 10 -15 minutes to acknowledge you. Food is great!!!! Try prime rib tacos! I would go back."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food is amazing!! The service is so personable and friendly! We go here several times a month and are never disappointed!"

  • "French dip is a must - service is always good - specials are great. Good place, consistent, friendly."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Only okay unfortunately, we had the prime rib "their specialty" and it was not impressive, but I wouldn't say it was bad. Only okay. The service was good, but it seemed like our waiter was the only person with people in his section, we felt slightly neglected at times. Not the service you expect when you consider the cost. Ended up leaving a 25% tip, not because it was deserved, but because I didn't feel like waiting another 15 minutes for my change. Side note, this place seems like it can't decide what it wants to be. It tries to say "hey I'm a high end steakhouse" but the decor and staff make it say "hey we're kind of a sportsbar/taqueria" Please decide what you are."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I've probably eaten at Laurenzo's at least 50 times over the past five years, mostly for business lunches, but also for very romantic dinners with a special date. The interior is a mix of Chicago 1930's Art Decor and some of the most incredible sports memorabilia I've ever seen. But the topper is the excellent food (Prime Rib is a house specialty) but they have great seafood as well. The service is just a impeccable as the food and I've never been disappointed in the whole experience. One of Houston's hidden gems!"

  • "The restaurant has no idea how to handle large parties."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food was average. If you want pizza or a burger than the place is fine. Steak was the cost of a fancy steak place but the ribeye was thin cut and average quality. My wife got fish and it was bland. Waiter was very nice and overall good but they dropped my son's pizza and he had to wait about 15 min for them to cook another. They didn't even offer him a free scoop of icecream for the wait."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "There were several things that raised an eyebrow but I let it go as this was the only time that we ever had a negative experience at Laurenzo's. My Wife and I have dined here quite often because the quality of the food as well as the quality of the service. This is one of our top 5 favorite restaurants in the city. I will chalk this up to a new Waiter."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Laurenzo's has the best prime rib in Houston, hands down. They know what they are doing! There are other menu gems as well, but this is the specialty. The service at Laurenzo's is excellent as well."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Although we live across town we try to get to Laurenzo's as often as possible. After our first visit a couple of years ago it quickly became one of our favorite restaurants. The food is wonderful and the service is fantastic! Ask for Dallas as a waiter."

  • "I was expecting a different vibe when I walked in. The ambience is a bit dated. We sat and ordered drinks. The server was very helpful and attentive. Drinks came and we ordered our food. Food was awesome. (Try the hamburgers) Lerenzoes is expensive. So by a voucher try dampen the effect the bill will have kn your pocket book. 4 stars."
