Table behind us was very loud and the lady was practicing lots of profanity. Told the server, his resolution was to bring us more wine. Manager in my opinion never addressed our issue nor did he come to our table. Poor experience and we have done dined there several times. Not going back to that location anytime soon.

Pappas has become one of our favorite places to dine on special occasions. While Pappas definitely lands on the high side of the price scale, the quality steaks and outstanding service easily justify the cost.

This was a birthday dinner for my wife, and we had the artisan cheese platter as an appetizer along with a lovely bottle of German Riesling selected by the sommelier that fell well within our price range. The cheese platter had a nice selection of American cheeses along with crostini, dried cranberries, nuts and honey comb that we devoured in record time.

We then decided to share the 40 oz Porterhouse for two, carved tableside along with the crab mac and cheese (yeah, no "healthy" veggies on this visit!). The steak was perfectly cooked medium-rare and both the filet and strip were tender, which each cut having its own distinct flavor from the difference in marbling.

We ordered Key Lime pie to go (we were stuffed at this point), and when we got home we were pleasantly surprised to see that not only had our server (I wish I could remember her name) packaged our leftovers, but also sent home a full loaf of fresh bread and a container of butter.

I will note that Pappas main dining room has the tendency to be very loud, but in a good way if that makes sense. We were seated in a smaller room just off the bar, and it seemed that most of us seated in that quiet area were celebrating some occasion.

Pappas is a place we visit about once a year, and we will definitely be back.

I've touted this as the greatest steakhouse ever and recommended it to everyone for many years. Not anymore. The ribeye i had for my birthday on Friday was not the same beautifully aged melt-in-your-mouth perfection I remembered it being. It was a nicely cooked mediocre cut of steak at best. It was so lean that I was genuinely confused as to whether they accidentally brought me out a strip. Chewy. Nearly indistinguishable from ordering a choice-grade ribeye from saltgrass, but for 2.5x the price. Not worth the $55.

Excellent service as always.

Excellent cocktails (although at $15, it would have been nice to fill the glass), very good food and presentation, attentive service without being intrusive. We came to Pappas to celebrate our 51st anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We'll return.

Went to Pappas Steakhouse to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was wonderful! We started with cocktails in the bar area which were great! Sat down right at our reservation time in a quiet area in the back of the restaurant which was nice. We started with the smoked salmon appetizer which was different but very good. Then I had a shrimp bisque and my husband got the house salad - that ranch was delish! We both got steaks which were so good and perfectly cooked. We got asparagus and the special crab mac n cheese which was amazing! Ended the meal with the turtle pie which was also great! Overall it was a great experience and we really enjoyed our meal! The service was outstanding - by far the best we have ever had. We will for sure be back!

Ambiance started out good though the candle kept going out. Staff was courteous and prompt. Food was pretty good except the special wagyu. It was actually sinewy and tough. Manager resolved it by ordering a few extra pieces very rare. Then a 5 top of guys were seated next to us. Things got really noisey and wanted to leave. It was the typical upscale steakhouse experience.

Our meal was excellent as was the service. Our waiter couldn't have been any nicer. Would definitely recommend for a date night or special occasion (anniversary!). The only downside was the long wait. Even with reservations, our wait was over 45 minutes. Fortunately, we found a table at the bar.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service was outstanding.
Unfortunately there was a seemingly nice but clueless family seated in a he middle table of a modest dining area with a screaming infant that went on and in for at least 25 to 30 minutes. No family member had the thought of taking the infant to the restroom ?
I am a family person that had children and have 4 grandchildren. I would never think to take an infant to a high end steakhouse during dinner hours where each customer is paying north of $125 to dine.
Not sure what the wait staff can do. It puts everyone in an awkward and unpleasant situation.

Our food was great, and so were our drinks, and waiting time was minimal.

But we were placed in an area that seemed to be exclusively for families with YOUNG children which ruins the experience if you were looking for quiet conversation.

The food was pricey, which is fine, until they took our food without offering to bag it. We had assumed they bagged it until we looked at the bag they gave us for left over dessert, and realised that they hadn't bagged any of our other food- which was, quantity wise, under half eaten.

We love this restaurant but we’re a little disappointed. My husband accidentally left two Birthday cards with gift cards in them. I talked to a person the day after and she said they weren’t there. I thought a restaurant of this caliber would have had them. I guess all people aren’t honest.

We were looking for a traditional steakhouse on our visit to Texas. A friend of ours recommended this place and we were not disappointed. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. Our waiter was fantastic allowed us enough space and time to enjoy ourselves. Although my steak was a little under cooked, it was still delicious. Everything else was cooked to perfection.

I had heard that this was the best steak place in Houston but it did not live up to expectations. Japanese Wagyu was not as good as some of the other less expensive Wagyu steak we have had and was not much better than the filet that one of us ordered. The rub on the filet had an excessive amount of salt in it. Overall, I felt the meal was overpriced for the experience and the quality of the preparation.
