The service was great and
The service was great and so was the food. It wasn't too busy but the energy was still high and there was lots of available staff. I don't see why the women have to dress so promiscuously, it doesn't affect their ability to serve a dish or take and order. It's more distracting than anything.

An Enjoyable Evening.
Our server - Travis was exceptional. The service of the meal was paced so that we were able to sit and enjoy the ambiance and our guests. Steaks were all cooked to perfection and plate presentation was extremely good. Extra character was given to the drinks - very impressed. Deserts were additionally well presented. Our guests who are frequent patrons of the Keg were impressed.
The only minor complaint we could provide is that there was no bread and no option to order garlic bread - the only disappointment of the evening.
Definitely will be back.

Very impressed. I've been to Houstons twice, and the food, service and ambiance have been awesome. I won't hesitate to come back.

This was my 2nd time going
This was my 2nd time going to Houston's. The meals and service was excellent.
I brought my 4 1/2 daughter and the server was really good with her.
All above excellent.

Good service, with a smile!
We booked a group of 8 for lunch at 1:00 on a Friday on an hours notice. They had a table arranged and constructed on arrival inside the nicely air conditioned dining room. When we wavered between that and moving to the patio they happily offered to switch us without fanfare...
Food was great., service attentive and for a group of 8, better than expected.
Good spot for office lunches!

A Nice Anniversary
We went to Houstons for the first time Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. We were very impressed. I had the filet mignon, and my husband had the prime rib. Both meals were excellent. Our server was fantastic. I'm sorry but I forgot his name. He was tall, very friendly. I had asked if there was a caramel latte type drink after dinner and even though there wasn't one on the menu, he came up with something for me. A cappuccino with the dessert caramel sauce on top. I was very impressed with that. The only thing that wasn't completely perfect was I had ordered the crème brule and while it tasted good, half of it was warm and the other half was cold. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we will definitely eat there again.

Sort of like The Keg
1st time here. More modern than the Keg, steaks almost as good. Appetizers and menu in general more varied. Extremely friendly service. less stuffy than the Keg across the street. Very good value for money. Deserves to succeed.

The food, service and setting were all excellent. The online menu doesn't seem to be up to date and does not match the restaurants current menu. slightly disappointing in some of the changes like the nachos and the mac and cheese.

In my reservation, I requested a table away from the bar area as we were having a business lunch and needed a certain level of quiet. We got that. The first two members of our arty arrived 20 minutes early. I arrived on time and the last member, 30 minutes late however, the staff handled this situation in a professional and friendly manner, ensuring that the early birds had attention while waiting and by never making anyone feel awkward for being early or late. Food was very good and 3 out of 4 remained from noon to 6 pm with no hassles and only friendly, ongoing service.

Went on a Friday dinner date
Went on a Friday dinner date for "Barrie-licious"; had been wanting to try there for a while. Super impressed with both the food and service. All 3 courses were top notch. The servers (runners, etc) were all very personable and made good conversation beyond the norm (without dragging it out). Great to find such a nice place so close to home! Overall, a fantastic experience; looking forward to returning.

We visited Houston for dinner as two of our party were celebrating a birthday .. we had a lovely meal and received great customer service. Our experienced server was also training a new member of staff and she displayed great patience in doing this, as the restaurant was quite busy.
Three of our main courses dishes were steak and they were cooked to perfection - and we especially loved the choice on the dessert menu ( the cheesecake was delightful! )

The food was awesome, but
The food was awesome, but a little expensive for a night out for two, so I won't be frequenting Houston's anytime soon. But other than that, it was really was a great treat.

Houston, We Have A Problem
My problem is that I can't eat there every night.
Loved everything about our dining experience.

It was my first time going
It was my first time going and I am so glad we did. Our server was very friendly and the food was amazing. I was worried about bringing my 18 month daughter with us as it is a fancy restaurant but she too had a GREAT time. Our server brought her crayons and little plate of snacks while she waited for her dinner. All in all I was more then happy with the time we spent there and we will be going back.

Enjoyed the room atmosphere and decor Birthday party made it seem noisier then usual but understand there is seating below the area we were in nice for conversation best part was our server from Wales so friendly tried so hard to please she would fit well in any fine dining scene

Surprise B-Day Dinner
My reservations were for 18 and I confirmed 14. The table seating was located so that my husband had no idea who was there until he got to the table. A couple of us ordered the Shrimp/Lobster appetizer which was delicious. A lot of us ordered the Steaks and the positive feedback was numerous comments. I had 60 candles placed on the cheesecake and our waiter figured out to use a piece of cardboard and none of the cancels blew out when he walked with it through the restaurant. The service was excellent with such a large amount of people to serve.

Not as expensive as you might think
Exceeded expectations. Not as expensive as I thought it would be. Lots of choice. Particularly enjoyed the 25$ set menu - good variety and great value for money. Kids loved the atmosphere and the food.

Steak was very good...
I had the filet mignon; cooked as I had ordered and seasoned very nicely. The restaurant is nicely decorated, very modern, however, it is quite loud. All in all I would recommend Houston's.

Nice night out with family
It was our first visit to Houston's. We used the on line reservation booking which was extremely user friendly.
The steak was perfectly done and everyone enjoyed their choices from fish to pasta as well.
The staff were extremely attentive and genuine.
