    From its beginning in the 80's, Lynn's has consistently maintained the highest quality of food and service, whether for lunch or dinner, whether for a business meeting or romantic or special occasion. How refreshing is it, that for 30-yrs or more, Lynn's is still providing what so many "others" have failed to do. That is outstanding.

    My wife and I decided to try the restaurant as we live very close. From outside doesn't look good, but once inside we were surprised by the carefully decorated living room. The welcome was warm and the suggestions about food and wine were very good without pressure. Food was super both on the soup and crab cake as well as the meat superbly cooked. Wine selection is huge, but the recommendation simplified our life with a very good value for money wine. A place to return

    the food was amazing, very well prepared and presented. The interior has a great ambiance, which is a huge contrast from the exterior (office building). While the pricing is a bit on the high side, the food and service is well worth it. If you order wine, be prepared as they have a very lengthy and extensive wine list. We relied on the servers recommendation and were not disappointed.

    Absolutely the best service out of any restaurant I have ever been, and the foot is excellent. This is one of the best restaurants in Houston, and it is great to take people from out of town there, since it is not a chain restaurant, truly a different place than the usual.

    Dined on 8/25/2014
    Tried during HOU Rest Wks. Key points: 1.Location & parking are unusual but atmosphere inside is cozy. 2.Waited nearly 15 minutes for our server after we were seated. At least after he got there, he was attentive & knowledgeable. 3: The food: Crab cake was small, somewhat dry, had more filler than I care for (little to none). My lobster bisque and husband's berg salad were both fresh & delicious. Would order those again. The 2 tenderloin medallions w/ 2 sauces were very good. Tender, moist, done perfectly, and sauces accented the beef nicely. However, the bland broccoli w/ sprinkled spices and carrots right out of the bag dragged the whole meal down. So disappointing. Choc cake & key lime pie were uninspired; don't bother.

    The staff is just wonderful. The lobster bisque was so good that I could have eaten a bucket of it. My husband and I both ordered the 8oz filet. It was tasty but something was missing. Juicy, tender yes, but the flavor was missing. On the rare occasions I eat steak, I expect an OH WOW experience and this was not it. I've eaten at Lynn's one time before and had fish. The fish was excellent.

    There is a reason Lynn's Steakhouse has been in business for almost 30 years - excellent food and service. It's been a Memorial area staple for a consistently great dining experience. And, as an added bonus - the clientele this establishment attracts respects the owners of the establishment and their fellow diners enough to dress and act appropriately!

    What a great local steakhouse. Has all the makings of the chain steakhouses (great wine, great steak, etc) but it is nice, quiet and offer a generous, attentive, real staff to wait on you. We generally stay on the beaten path for steakhouses and was so happy to discover this place that is one of a kind. Some reviews were concerned about the decor which we found to be very cozy, warm and real. The restaurant was very comfortable.

    Lynn's is great restaurant. It's excellent food, service and atmosphere are very reliable. From the minute you walk in the door and are greeted warmly through the excellent service lead by Gustavo, we are always well pleased. The Alsatian twist with the sauces and other touches makes it more special. This is usually a special occasion place for us (out of town guests, birthday, anniversary, etc.), however this time we decided to try Lynn's Restarant Week Menu. The Restarant Week Menu did not provide anything new or innovative and there were no wine pairngs. We had hoped for that since many restaurants participate in Restarant Week with new/innovative menu items wine pairings. Still, it was great. Old relaible.

    Dined on 8/4/2014
    A meal is only as good as the last cup of coffee and in this occasion there was no coffee to seal the deal, the espresso machine was down. But to top it off, the one dessert we ordered (off the menu, recommended by waiter), had run out. It is interesting to note that there were only 3 tables with customers from 6 pm until 10:45 pm, so how did they run out of carrot cheesecake is a mystery. The steaks were good and overpriced, but when you go to Lynn's you don't have money limits. the wine was good, so was the port wine. The sides were ok and I was not amazed by the ceviche they served us...The service was outstanding. kudos to to the kid...

    We visited Lynn's for the first time and came away very impressed. The mood is romantic and the service is top-notch. If you are into the latest trendy place where you can be seen and you are bombarded with movement and noise...this is not your place. If you appreciate the absolute best food and service and enjoy spending time enjoying your meal...give Lynn's a try. The wine list is quite extensive and covers a wide range of varieties and budgets. The bar is stocked with most anything you want. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. Drinks to apps to absolutely perfectly cooked steaks were loved by all. The bone-in filet was on another level. I recommend ordering Bearnaise sauce to complement. The Napoleon salad was also a surprise.

    Im getting over being skeptical that good restaurants can be in a strip mall. And I love the dive-y good find. But Lynn's wants to be more and should be. Excellent service, very nice menu, my steak was perfect, crab cakes were loved by all, wine list impressive. All there with the white table cloth. But the room is so dated it wouldnt even qualify for vintage. Even smells a bit musty. Wouldnt take much to improve the ambiance and then it would all be there.

    Old school hospitality. It is alive and well at Lynn's. This past Saturday evening we were welcomed enthusiastically and authentically as first time guests. From the moment we were seated until the moment we left, we were treated as royalty. The wine list is extensive and the staff helps narrow done the choices quite well. We were encouraged to dine at our own pace ..no rush, no robotic routines ... just genuine hospitality, great service and great food.

    Upon entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted and seated. Even though we had two young boys with us, there was never an inkling of the staff being annoyed. We loved the entire meal from appetizers to our beautifully prepared steaks. Each part was well composed and tasty, they made special meal accommodations for our boys and that was very nice. My husband and I have eaten at steakhouses all over the world and Lynn's did not disappoint at all, steaks were very juicy and perfectly cooked. I would go so far as to state that Lynn's is in the top three of steakhouses in Houston. We consider this place our neighborhood gem!

    We have not been to this restaurant in about 20 years and chose to done there for my husbands birthday due to proximity to our home. We had a great experience-the food was awesome and our waiter Angel was extremely knowledgeable with wine and food selections. The only minor complaint was that there were only three tables occupied and our service was very slow. I believe it was on purpose since our waiter always responded promptly if signaled. This would have been fine had it not been a weeknight and we wanted to get in and out faster than 2 hours. Definitely will go back.

    I have been frequenting Lynn's for more than 15 years now. The service is next to none other - top notch - attentive but never hovering. The food especially the steaks for which they are renown are superb cuts done to perfection. Deserts are excellent. Their wine list has won awards! It is a high level establishment without the snobbery.

    It had been approximately 25 years since we (my better half and I) had been to Lynn's, but we went last Saturday evening. Apparently, one can go home again. The decor and interior had changed, but the service and the meals had not. Both were outstanding. Our waiter (Angel) was competent, attentive and friendly. I had the red snapper and my wife had the New York Strip. They were cooked to our specifications exactly. As an aside, the sauteed mushrooms were excellent. The key lime pie and Irish coffee were very good! All in all, it was an very enjoyable meal and evening.

    Went there for my wife's birthday. They had a card on the table wishing her a happy birthday and signed by all of the staff. Every thing was personalized and well done. Great food, great service, nice attention to detail and not hurried. It was nice to be able to converse without having to talk over canned music. They even put a candle in here dessert. You truly do get what you pay for at Lynn's.
