The food was great. A few minor issues with the kitchen (quantity of items on the plate, cooking to our specifications, and consistency of food brought to the table). Wait staff was very good at correcting the issues, but should have caught them before bringing to the table. The restaurant is elegant and you cannot hear the people at the bar while eating. Overall, I enjoyed the food enough to overlook the other issues and I will return.

I had nothing but chips and queso and a few drinks. But the waitress was very attentive and the price wasn’t bad at all for a night out.

We finally had the awesome service this place use to provide. Marissa was super attentive and made sure we had food and drinks. The orders came out fast and the food was delicious. We will be asking to sit in Marissa section again!

Service was horrible on the day My sisters were here to dine with me. The waiter was training and wasn’t really attending to our needs even the food took a long time to get to us. Another waitress came to give us more drinks since our waiter was MIA. I was disappointed

Didn’t look at my reservation. Didn’t care what I had written there. In years past, this place was great, but I suspect a management change. Food is inconsistent, music is too loud inside and out, and service is horrible.

Food was good and the service was adequate. Not very busy on this Wednesday afternoon. Had outside seating but you could not have a conversation for the noise from the freeway traffic.

The food and service was superb. Steaks were awesome and perfectly cooked. The Prix Fixe is a great value. Lots of choices for every taste. Usually get the Ahi tuna but the baked potato soup was a delicious change in honor of St. Patrick. As always, I finished with the ever-satisfying creme brule. Even the grilled cheese was above standards! We'll be back soon.

Upon entering I was acknowledged, not greeted but acknowledged by the hostess while she was checking her screen. Another couple comes in a few minutes after me and the hostess’s turns around greets them and proceeded to ask their preferences and seat them. That was kind of rude in my opinion. I figured they had a reservation like myself. But she didn’t even ask if they did.

The waitress was very slow we barley saw her. My sister ordered a drink it took over 15 minutes to get.

Other than that food was great!

We have been coming to Houlihan's Live Oak since it opened. It had a lull about a year or so ago but is back strong. Our server Bailey was top notch. She was chipper and well informed. We had the Prix Fixe which is a great value with lots of choices. We'll definitely be back.

Valentines Day dinner, Food was excellent and was worth the price. I was concerned about the service, might have been overwhelming for our server , he forgot our orders and request several times.

My reason for the low rating is based on two issues. First, my wife was given wine in a dirty glass. Second, my wife ordered some vegetables with her meal, and the vegetables was not included. When we mentioned this to the waiter, he offered to bring her the vegetables well after her meal was already eaten. Also, it took him a long time to return to our table after we told him of the missing vegetables. I understand it was Valentines Day, but we paid for a meal that included the vegetables on the menu. One last thing, concerning the wine in a dirty glass, when I received our bill, I noticed that we were charge for an additional glass of wine, because we returned the first order of wine due to the dirty glass. I brought this additional charge to the waiter, and he had it removed. If I had not gone over the bill, I would have paid for an additional glass of wine that wasn't our fault.

We arrived with a very warm friendly greeting. Restaurant was clean and orderly. Staff quickly seated us and waiter Kyle was genuinely assertive and attentive. Food came timely with outstanding presentation, temperature, and flavorful ingredients. Dessert was equally delicious and the price more reasonable than expected. We will recommend Houlihan's and visit again.
Thank you !!

Food was only subpar but the really disappointing part was the service. Plates were never removed unless we asked and had to keep asking to have our water refilled. Also one in the group never got her meal placed so the other 5 had their meals and finished by the time she got her dish. Very disappointing night so much so we dont plan on coming back. Sorry Houlihans...we loved the one in stone oak but this one missed the mark big time!

Lovely meal there. We went as part of Restaurant week. The whole reason We went was for the salted caramel butter cake. Sadly, they were out of it. When that is part of your restaurant week menu, you just don’t run out. Bad planning. The food was very good. Our server was very friendly. We will go back another time. I really want to taste that caramel butter cake.

Hostess seated us and then we were Ignored for 15 minutes. Server finally came by for drink orders and brought menus. Brought water and came 10 minutes later for order. 30 minutes later brought soup before appetizers. Still no drinks 😟. Brought dinner and then appetizers. Drinks came after we flagged down someone and asked if they were coming. All I can say is it was very disappointing. Still have not received confirmation for points either
