We went for Father’s Day with a reservation. When we got there the greeter has stepped away. Another party of four showed up after us. When the greeter returned, without even asking who was first, asked how many and seated the other party... who did not have a reservation. We waited over 20 minutes to be seated. We ordered 1 app which took a very long time to come out and our meal even longer. While the food was delicious....my sweet potato fries can out room temp and and my cauliflower mash barely Luke warm. The stuffed chicken was delicious! The waiter was great. He did take off 15% of our bill cause he said the wait for food was long due to a very large party. While this restaurant is probably amazing....after our experience I don’t think I will return.

Our third visit here, our third personalized and great service experience. Tonight wS very special. It was our youngest daughter's bday. The server was so attentive and kind, and then she took it up a notch higher with the amazing treatment of our daughter on her special day. She received a dessert of her choice, a sweet card signed by all on the staff at the time, and a card for a free appetizer on our next visit. Our food is always fantastic, and the staff here is some of the best we've had anywhere else, even 5 star high-end establishments. I am so happy to have this great place with fantastic food and service so close to home.

We've become fond of Houlihan's after only a couple of visits after moving to north FW. My wife loves the Stuffed Chicken dish and I've tried a few different things, including the Salmon, Hamburger and Seared Ahi Tuna Salad. We've also enjoyed the French Onion Soup and found it delightful. Service has been very good each time and food prepared well, with an abundance of quantity and quality. It can be a little on the expensive side, but we knew that going in. Enjoy, we'll be back again and again.

The only change we'd like to see is have them carry Canadian Club Whiskey at the bar!

Only issue was they ran out of asparagus and cheesecake on Mother's Day which was on there prixfix menu items, so understandable. They did substitute a different dessert not on the prixfix menu at no charge. So that was nice.

The food was quite good and our server was attentive. Prices are relatively moderate, particularly the desserts. Our only complaint was that the temperature in the restaurant was quite cool and the air conditioner blew strongly throughout our visit. The manager we spoke too was polite and sympathetic, but there just wasn't much he could do to moderate the temperature. It caused us to make an earlier departure than we would have if it weren't so cold in the building.

this store had a 'server' problem the night we went
- the server only came by twice (to take order, & give the check)
- 'mgr' type person was running around helping out ...
- we did not mind the waiting & think this might have been a one-off since (hopefully) since last time we were there the service was better.

We had a 7:00 reservation and when we arrived happy hour folks were still enjoying the live music and the special Valentines dinner brought in a lot of diners. We went to the bar to wait and a waiter took our order, but before the drinks were even poured the hostess came to say our table was ready! The bar server brought our drinks to our table, introduced us to our server, and with all courtesies returned to his bar duties. Our dinner and the service were fabulous, as always. I would recommend Houlihans to anyone wanting a great meal with comparable service. Houlihans is our go to restaurant with or without out-of-town guests. 5 stars!

We love the scallops at Houlihan’s and their salad with the white cheddar cheese. Their apple dessert is to die for as well. Our favorite server there is Hannah. She’s excellent. We go almost twice a month as it’s always consistent. My only complaint is that on Tuesday night they have half-price bottles of wine and they’re always sold out of the ones that we want. They have a very poor selection. We’ve brought it up multiple times to the management to no avail.

We arrived on time for our 6:15 p.m. reservation. We were told by the hostess that they would seat us as soon as possible. After about 25 minutes, with others being seated ahead of us, I asked about getting seated, since we had a reservation. She informed me, that they did not consider our reservation anything more than a call in, and said it was done 15 minutes prior to the reservation time. As to the first part of that statement, that's an issue for OpenTable to work out. As to the second, the reservation was made on line 40 minutes ahead of our arrival and we received a confirmation. The OT app can block times that were not available, so I'm not sure why this was my issue. Anyway, I asked how long it would be, and she said there was only 1 couple ahead of us, so it would be just a few more minutes. Another couple was seated, and than someone, (I presume the manager), proceeded to take another party ahead of us. We finally were seated, though our written request for a booth was ignored, (went to the party they moved ahead of us). 30 minutes after our reservation time. Our server was great and the food was goo, otherwise the review would have been a lot lower. Too many dining choices in the area that understand how to honor a reservation. We might go back, but only during off peak hours, and not a first choice.

We've been twice now, Saturday night with friends and then again Sunday for lunch because we were so pleased with the first time. The food was very good and so was the service... at least on the first two times. I do wish that the Salmon I had at dinner was a little bigger. The menu says 5oz, which is itself small but I would be surprised if it was anything over 4oz. However, the lunch portion of the chicken sandwich was very adequate, along with a large portion of sweet potato fries. All tasted great.

Saturday night was fairly noisy, but it was packed full with several groups waiting. I was glad I made reservations on OpenTable! Sunday wasn't near as loud or as busy. Both sets of staff were efficient and friendly. I like that someone else will bring food when ready as opposed to having to wait for the specific server to be available.

We'll likely go back for appetizers again soon. All in all, we enjoyed the restaurant quite a bit.

Made reservation for NYE, smart idea we thought faced with a not so friendly hostess. The hostess being overwhelmed shouldn’t cause a communication breakdown and her lack of understanding we had a reservation. The hostess was very dismissive when my first words were we have a reservation, after waiting 10-15 mins we decided to go back to hostess when we were then seated. We were sat at a table behind the bar wall were gnats harrassed us while we ate. Let’s not mention the bar drinks, they were terrible. The NYE drink special was served at room temperature we ordered two they were identical just gross, we also order a margarita which we had to send back. Our waiter was pretty good but the hostess, drinks and ambiance with gnats made it for a not so good NYE dinner.
