Austin made our dining experience memorable and enjoyable for my husband’s birthday. He was accommodating in offering an alternative meal for our son, which were freshly made chicken tenders and fries, a burger from their sister restaurant next door or a small filet mignon. Because our son showed interest in the milk chocolate mousse dessert, which was his favorite, he gave it to us to try for free. It was a absolutely delicious and unique with it’s layers of marshmallow and cookie crumbles. The steak, lobster, turtle gumbo and seafood bisque and creamed spinach was amazing. This place has always been consistent in its impeccable service and quality of food—that’s why we keep coming back.

The restaurant is not cheap. For example, there is virtually no bottle of wine under $100, but you can make headway by ordering by the glass. Also, the sommelier, Eric, was wonderful in assisting. Eric was also our waiter and made the celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary extremely memorable (in a good way!). The steaks are great, and, unlike some other Houston steak houses we have visited, cooked to perfection. The wine was really good. My one concern would be to have first-time visitors make sure that they look at the prices of food and drink before venturing forth. If you can afford it, at least in my humble opinion, you will not find a better steakhouse in Houston, and I have eaten at virtually all of them.

Great menu for restaurant week including whole broiled lobster. Service very good. Portion sizes are quite large. Table was available within 10 minutes of 5:45 PM reservation but think that later reservation times required a much longer wait.

What another fabulous evening at Pappas Bros! Start to finish, everything was wonderful! Call by name when seating, our waiter Henry had just the amount of service -- I don't like to be hovered over and asked too often if everything is ok! -- meal just outstanding, as usual. Starter soup, so flavorful and smooth, Filet cooked to perfection, very generous portion of mashed potatoes and crisp string beans on the side, my Lemon Sorbet came in a beautiful, edible Chocolate cup and tablemates giant slices of cheesecake finished off the perfect meal/evening. I also want to add I think they have the best "table" bread in all of Houston! Don't normally eat bread but who can resist the warm, crisp outside soft inside loaf put in front of you!!! Go, Enjoy!

Pappas Steakhouse is always a special occasion for us and this time was as well. The staff is so very well trained and informed about all aspects of the menus - food, wine, cocktails, every detail.

This was a different experience and varied from the norm in one respect. We were in a small room parallel to the parking lot, as opposed to being in the main dining room. There was one pair of men sharing one of the six tables that were very much enjoying the experience which reverberated around the tight space. This in no way reflects on the restaurant or its staff, it just made what it typically a quiet, intimate dinner into a bit of a boisterous affair.

Food was amazing as always. Love the bar area. The server staff is second to none. However, we had a 6:30 reservation and we were not seated until close to 7:00. Still live this place. In my top 3 steakhouse.

Came with girlfriends for Houston restaurant week. Parking is valet or self park-if you get there early enough. Ambience is great. Staff is friendly and nice. My steak was not cooked to my preference, sent it back, came back the same. Manager walking around noticed, came around, apologized, brought a new plate with steak finally cooked to my preference. HRW meal tasted great otherwise. Waiter was attentive initially, but once it was busy, forgot one of 3 coffee until reminded. Overall good experience. Would come again.

This restaurant serves very good steaks and has a superb wine list but generally is quite pricy. For that reason we went during restaurant week to obtain much reduced food prices. Unfortunately, the restaurant was extremely noisy, and the staff was spread too thin. All this spoiled the occasion. I would not recommend going during restaurant week.

Hoping this was an anomaly. Very dry ribeye, associate’s steak undercooked, had to hunt down our waiter several times. Great wine selection.

Richard was a great waiter. I was dining by myself and did not want to be rushed. He understood that without me having to say anything and I enjoyed a leisurely meal. I asked for a slight deviation on the sorbet dessert and it was delivered to me perfectly as I had asked.

One of Houston's most popular spots and what you would expect from old style high end steakhouse. White table cloth, good food choices and service. Speak Easy vibe but Super noisy and crowded. Nice little bar off entry with pianist and a few intimate corners. Anthology of pages and pages and pages of pricey wine if your on an expense account, good luck finding decent under $100.00. Everything A La Carte. You'll probably wait for your reservation on the weekends but great that they are open late.
Free valet parking.

Took advantage of HRW specials. You can't go wrong with the menu and this is the best time and way to dine at a fine steakhouse at a very good price. And you also support The Houston Food Bank. Reservations can be tight if you don't plan ahead but the experience is well worth any wait you might experience.

We made a reservation at 745 pm, which was accepted (in fact it showed there were 3 more spots available). When we arrived the hostess had us wait and we didn’t get seated until 810pm. I understand it’s a Friday night and things get busy, but do not accept a reservation that you cannot accommodate. It is deceptive to bring customers in, knowing that you cannot seat them at their designated reservations. Furthermore, the hostess was rude and raised her voice when I inquired about the status of my reservation after waiting 15 mins. I would have appreciated appropriate communication in which we were made aware of the back up in seating upon arrival NOT when i had to ask after waiting for 15 minutes.
