A word from Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse - Houston
Exclusive dining for Houston’s most exclusive village.

Situated in Houston’s affluent Highland Village, our traditional green-and-white steakhouse is more than a neighborhood icon, but one of the most desirable destinations in the Houston steak scene. Seating up to 350 guests and a perfect complement to the upscale shopping retail district, it’s the ultimate atmosphere for luxury dining and drinking.
Diner Reviews
  • "We had a family dinner with 9 people. My food was great, everyone seemed to enjoy theirs except my mother did not get her lobster until everyone else had finished eating. Also, I was in the bar area for cocktails and appetizers earlier. I ordered a dirty martini but it was straight goose. When I asked for olive juice, he did not remake the martini but poured olive juice into the glass. So it was a warm, not shaken, $20 dollar drink. I didn't feel that was a classy move and up to par with your restaurant."

  • "I had the grilled chicken Caesar salad and the grilled chicken was so dried out that it was difficult to cut it even with a steak knife. There was very little return service for refilling water glasses or having the soup spoon when the soup was served. Overall a big disappointment!"

  • "My department from work, a group of 9, dined at Smith & Wollensky for HRW's. The food was good. The service was slow at best. At one point, one member in our party went to look for our waitress. She was in the back wiping menu's. Everyone had completed their entree and were waiting for dessert. Our Director asked about the slow service and her excuse was the restaurant was very busy. It was not overly busy. The problem was poor time management on the waitress's part."

  • "This was a mediocre high-end steakhouse. The service was slower than it should have been, which may be a result of understaffing. Drinks were slow for about half of our table. As a steakhouse, the one thing they should absolutley get right is each individual's steak order. A member of our group ordered one of their signtaure dry-aged ribeyes and was brought a smaller portioned t-bone instead. This was a complete mishap of either the waiters understanding or the kitchens, but no remediation was made when this occurred. After waiting for awhile for the food, the only offer was to take the wrong steak or wait longer for the correct one. It had to be asked of the server to have a portion of the meal for this idividual to be comped."

  • "This was my first experience with Smith & Wollensky, I made reservations for a group of 5 ladies. We had a wonderful time, everything was superb as far as service ( very attentive wait staff, would have liked to have a purse tree, we noticed other tables were offered to hang their purses), and the environment (loved the music, 2nd level view ). The food was delicious ( Stuffed Shrimp and filet mignon) and we all plan to become repeat consumers. Thank you.."

  • "The food was a big disappointment....The steaks lacked flavor & were nothing to remember. The sides also were flavorless & cheap tasting. I can easily say that Boston Market makes better creamed spinach. I would never go back based on the food served & still have the majority of it sitting in my fridge."

  • "I took my mom here for lunch for Houston Restaurant Week. It was the first visit for both of us. The atmosphere was very nice without being too pretentious and we had a great seat upstairs overlooking Westheimer. The food overall was very good from both presentation to temperature to taste. The beef was super juicy and tender. The only downside was that our service was mediocre (slow to bring drinks, slow to refill, didn't offer sugar, overcharged us for our meal...which was later corrected, and failed to pack all the food to go as requested) even though the restaurant was not too busy at the time. I honestly think it was just our server because the server next to our table seemed attentive. All I would recommend for a great meal."

  • "The service was incredible. Our waitress Rene( I hope I have her name correctly. (Slightly older than the rest of the waitors) We loved her she made the dining experience great.."

  • "The drinks were over priced for what they were. I believe Out Back Steak House has comparable quality. And to think of all the other Restaurants that we could have spent the same amount on......We'll definitely be going somewhere else on our next excursion out into Houston."

  • "expensive food that belongs at outback steak house. Over seasoned and over cooked. If the steaks were prime it would be difficult to mess-up . Cheap meat is cheap meat."

  • "I went here with some friends to celebrate my birthday dinner on 8/2. Everything was great from the dessert, food, wine list, private room, drinks except for 1 thing that can easily be fixed. My friend and I each ordered a long bone ribeye except he requested his medium well and I requested mine medium rare. When the steaks were served, the server didn't ask us which one of us ordered which steak so we received the wrong steaks. We figured it out after a couple of bites and just switched steaks. Our party was over 10 people and this wasn't too big of a deal to my friend and I but this is something that shouldn't happen to a place who's main course is serving steaks."

  • "Quite expensive. We were charged almost double the price for a slight change to the steak's side - aparagus and we were not told about this outrageous price impact. ..and the food was not that special at all."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Despite the fully booked restaurant, service was attentive and the noise level was very low. It can get a little dark in the booth so be sure to ask your server for a candle as the evening wears on. Food is always great here, however this time, the chocolate cake was dry and disappointing in flavor. This restaurant would greatly benefit from a happy hour."

  • "The Good: The steaks were fantastic. Long Bone Ribeye for myself, Filet for the wife; both were cooked perfectly and melt-in-your mouth delicious. The Hash-browned potatoes were a great side and S&W's chocolate cake has to be one of the best in town. Watching the sunset over Highland Village through the floor to ceiling windows really sets the mood well. The Bad: The crab cakes and stuffed shrimp were nothing special. Neither was the creamed spinach. The service was friendly and adequate but lacked the white glove treatment you'd expect from a $150+ pp dining experience. This place is outrageously expensive and lacks the "it" factor which is a shame because the steaks are fantastic. I'd eat here again but only on someone else's EA."

  • "The steak wasn't as good as I remembered in New Orleans. The Cream Boule wasn't good at all tasted like a caramel."

  • "The aged steak is wonderful. Hadn't eaten a steak so tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to any steak connoisseur. Green beans were some of the best I have ever had as well."

  • "My girlfriend and I went there for dinner and both food and service were outstanding. Notable wine list and one of the best steaks in my life."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We came here to celebrate a friend's birthday. Whilst elements of the dinner were outstanding - the service was wonderful, and the majority of the food was delicious, unfortunately my dry-aged sirloin steak was burnt to a crisp. The kitchen tried to hide this by turning the steak so that the least burnt side was showing. In only wanting a medium, this was a disappointing outcome, especially considering their reputation as a preeminent Houston steak-house. Being English, I was, of course, far too polite to demand a new one, especially considering the time it took for it to be originally cooked and the fact that my fellow guests were tucking into their dinners with gusto and vigor. This was SUCH a shame - it spoiled the evening for me."

  • "To be fair in this review I should point out this was stop 6 in an epic journey of the best steakhouses in this area of Houston with a client over a long period of days. If I would have started here I may have given them a better review. Having said that the total bill was up there with my top pick, Del Frisco's, so I would expect them to be as good. They were not. I got the three filet with three toppings plate, I asked for medium but what came out was medium well. Since each steak came with a large amount of toppings/seasonings I let it go, I knew I wouldn't really be able to tell the difference. My cohort in steaking asked for medium rare and his came out more medium, know this. Overall the cajun was overpowering, but the Gorgonzola A+"

  • "overall nice experience. only negative ,and this goes for all restaurants, too many interuptions by staff. Always asking if everything is ok. Sometimes it's nice to be left alone a little bit"

  • "First of all our server was outstanding. Not too chatty, not overly attentive and definitely more refined then the server I had that evening at another restaurant! Young and very aware of the nature of our meal. Business interview. If I could I would have hired her. My crabcake was wonderful (would have preferred 2 for the price though) fresh crab and not a lot of fillers. The salmon that both of my guests had was dry and our server graciously took one of them back brought out a fresh one and new veggies as well-since the rest of us finished the asparagus and the spinach!"

  • "It was weird...no hostess to greet us for a few minutes. Was finally greeted by a waiter then instructed us to go up stairs to the second hostess desk. Still no one around. I think they were short on staff so they seem to struggle a bit. Food was good though. Our waiter was nice."

  • "I've been to other Smith & Wollensky locations and this one in Houston is horrible! Poor quality food, servers not knowledgeable of food preparation nor the wine list. Never again. Overpriced and not worth it. Clearly not a fine dining experience."

  • "I knew S and W would be a great place to celebrate my 50th but I was sure what my college aged daughters would think. Well they loved it. Due to the holiday weekend the city was I crowded and so was the restaurant. As such it was quiet AND the wait staff was very attentive. This made the wonderful food that much better. Great time had by all!!!"

  • "What a wonderful time we had celebrating Mother's Day for three mothers and birthdays for two others in our party. S&W staff are extremely professional and courteous. The starters, sides, and entrees were delicious, some being crafty spins on old favorites (like the truffled mac and cheese). A little pricey but, you get what you pay for. An all-around fabulous evening for my family."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We have been several times but we asked to be seated outside to enjoy the evening. The server didn't introduce himself and seemed annoyed when we wanted the full menu and not just bar menu. We ordered a full three courses and drinks. Still rude and could not care any less we were there. Even after mentioning since it was my birthday, I wanted cake to go, he didn't even care to say anything but an obligatory 'thanks for coming in.'. For the money we spent and would have tipped - he should have at least attempted to be nice. My steak was amazing as usual. So was the cake. But server dude ruined it. "

  • "I was looking for a quick lunch for three of us. I asked specifically to be served quickly. We had to ask again to get order taken as this did not happen. Main course seeved finally 35 minutes after we arrived making a very rushed meal. Menu us expensive and quality was absolutely not in line with cost. Two steaks ordered - one medium and other medium rare - came both overbooked. Other plate was mediocre at best. "

  • "Excellent food quality and great presentations but the service (at least our server) was terrible. My wife and I went there for a late lunch after some serious shopping and we ordered our food and two half bottles of wine. We kept reminding our server that we would like to have our wine before we finish our meal. Needless to say that the two bottles finally showed up after we finished. Very disappointing."

  • "The food is always consistent at Smith and Wollensky--and it is fabulous. The wine list is extensive but a bit pricey. The tables in the upstairs dining room are nicely spaced--no elbow bumping here. It is quiet so private conversations can be had without shouting or sharing with the next table."
