HRW deal was great. Service from the staff and our server Luis topped everything off. Being a traveler from California, I would definitely come back the next time I’m in Houston to try other dishes on the menu.

Above everything else our Waiter, Eric Estafano I hope I spelled it Correctly, was well above par. His attention to detail as well as his composure made our evening even more enjoyable. It was a nice change to deal with someone who you can tell puts the effort in to make everyone feel at ease while they enjoy their dinner. This reason alone we will be back and not to forget the food was spot on as well.

I have always loved Pappas Steakhouse. The service is exemplary from all the employees. Very customer oriented. We went for the HRW menu. Everything was wonderful. You do not get watered down servings when you order from the HRW menu like many other restaurants. A class act. A shout out to Bryant our server, who was wonderful!

Service and dinner pace from Brian was excellent. The steaks were deliciously outstanding and cooked to exactly as we ordered them. Had to wait for our table a little while even with a reservation, but it was still well worth it. Lounge had a piano player, so that added to the experience. Overall, a great date night evening out!

My wife and I celebrated our 50th anniversary August 10th with dinner at Pappas Bros Steakhouse. The entire experience was as perfect as it gets. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the atmosphere was romantic, and the service was impeccable yet very personal! Our waiter, Omar, was exceptional and very knowledgable. He helped us choose a wine by the glass with sample tastings.That was a first! Fresh flowers were brought to our table, no less than 5 employees wished us happy anniversary, the manager came by our table to wish us happy anniversary , our dessert and coffee was complementary. I could go on and on but I will end this review by saying a restaurant experience doesn't get any better than this!

I cannot say how it saddens me to no longer recommend what for 30 years has been a favorite spot. Countless times We have enjoyed outstanding meals in the company of dear and wonderful friends as well as special occasions When it was just my husband and Me.
We were there at the invitation of a manager after having had a poor experience at our previous visit. The food was good and of course the ambience was fabulous, the service was very good to a point.

It was a belated anniversary celebration and when our dessert arrived it was not the special presentation we are accustomed to. When the bill came we had to ask If it was no longer a Pappas policy to help celebrate with a complimentary dessert on special occasions. He stated that it was an oversight and was quite polite about it, though It was frankly very embarrassing for us to have to ask I spent socially since the lovely bouquet on our table should have been a visual reminder.

I am certain that he wrongly assumed finances were an issue for us, far from the truth, we merely watch each bill so that we might be better stewards, like many of the wealthy families we know.

It saddens me to say that the quality we had come to love and expect from this fine dining restaurant has diminished over the past few years. We had noticed a decline in the quality of steaks in the past visits and now it seems the quality of service is no longer at its previous flawless standards.

We wish them well and hope this reaches their ears so that they might consider our opinion as previous customers. It is unlikely we will be returning.

My wife and I had a wonderful time. James took great care of us and had some wonderful recommendations. Steven the Wine Director guided us through the wine list with precision and pointed out some fantastic wines. The food was amazing. I enjoyed everything from the valet when we first arrived all the way out the door where we met the valet again.

James our server was amazing, him and the rest of the staff that served us helped and recommend items. We had the bone in ribeye, filet (wagyu not the A5), lobster deviled eggs, gumbo, Mac and cheese, mushrooms, au gratin potatoes and oysters

Gumbo, steak, Mac & Cheese, lobster deviled eggs, oysters were all amazing in no particular order

The rest was also great but to Much cheese in the au gratin for my taste

Pappas Bros is among our favorite fine dining spots as we believe their steaks are 2nd to none! Pappas always has outstanding service but they went above and beyond in helping us celebrate my son's perfect test scores! He received royal treatment from the wait staff and management and I thought it was great that they reinforced the importance of education and striving for good grades! My son is absolutely in love with the service, atmosphere, and food! Pappas Bros earned a new fan in my son and has maintained us as "Lifers"! Couldn't have been happier with our last visit...

Service and food was exceptional! Good customer service was definitely a priority from the time you step in the restaurant until you depart. Our special night was made even better by choosing to dine at Pappas Brothers Steakhouse. We look forward to dining there again.

Consistently and by far, the best steak in Houston. The sommelier makes choosing the wine fun, interesting and oh so rewarding. I wish we could always go there on an expense account-but it is worth every penny for a special occasion. Why settle for a steak when you can have Pappas Bros. prime...with a fine wine no matter your budget.

Still the very best steak money can buy anywhere in the world. It’s really that good. And the service is spectacular from the valet to the hostess to the server. HRW menu is a great way to try the NY Strip dry aged and amazingly tender and juicy. Pricey but totally worth it. Get the cheesy potatoes and creamed spinach. Thank me later.

It was such a pleasant experience. Anytime I dine there I mention that I don’t eat pork. The dining manager always assures me that they talk to the chef and make sure my accommodations are met. It’s always a pleasure. I appreciate the special feeling they give us when they do that.

We arrived at 5:45 on a Saturday and the place was 90% packed. There was initially a problem with our reservation and seating, but a Manager quickly apologized and resolved the problem to our satisfaction. Our server Nick was the consummate professional. Even though we didn't order drinks or wine, we were not ignored by wait-staff like other high-end places when you don't order alcohol. There are other steak places that have a lot to learn from Pappas Bros!

Its nice to see the Manager walked around and came by to wish us Happy Anniversary.. It make us feel special. I even got a call on Monday (day after our visited) from the Manager to see how my dinning experienced and Anniversary with them. That's just top it... that he took the time to call the customer and mention Happy Anniversary.
Pappas is "First in its Class for Steak House restaurant!"
