Service was slow at our table. We were watching other people get their drinks long after we had ordered ours. Luckily we were not in a hurry.

Houlihan's OP has the best scallops! Theirs are way better than most expensive restaurants where I've ordered them. Don't hesitate to try them. And they have great cocktails, too. Perfect restaurant for a upscale dinner with a casual ambiance & price point.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Very friendly and energetic staff. They look like that they might be understaffed as most places are during the post-pandemic era, but you’d never know it. These people are to be commended for their hard work. They also didn’t sing happy birthday to my mom. Which was great because I specifically instructed them not to in my reservation. Ten stars. No, twenty. You know what? One BILLION stars. I don’t know if I have the authority to award that many but I. don’t. care.

I love the 95th street Houlihans. I came there a few years ago for my bachlorette dinner and loved it. Yesterday we had a party of twelve (two different reservations) and they were so accompanied and kind. Thank you!

We told our server, Todd, up front, that our group ate together about 4 times a year and tended to stay awhile. He did a great job of checking in with us, but not making us feel rushed in any way. We shared the eloute dip from the limited time menu and it was delicious. The Rangoon Chicken from the same menu was also very good.

We made a reservation for 7:45 and we arrived at the time but they decided to close early. I did not receive any notification that my reservation was canceled. Normally we love eating here and we understand it was a holiday so they closed early, but they should have notified us before we made the drive there. It was just very unprofessional.

We waited longer than usual for our food to arrive and the food was cold. The manager promptly took care of the problem and the second servings were much better. I found the men’s restroom in need of cleaning. In this particular restroom there is a persistent odor (I visit this restaurant often) of sewer gas. I think more diligence is needed in cleaning the restroom.

Service was great. We ordered something off the happy hour menu that we have often. You could tell the kitchen was swamped because it was not anywhere near as good as it usually is. Having said that, the server took it off our bill so no harm no foul, we probably just won’t go back during happy hour.

Our server was training a young lady. He was young, energetic, polite and funny. He was fast on the refills, and just super friendly. Food was fantastic (as usual) and the atmosphere was quiet for dinner time but it was much appreciated.

The food was fair at best. The calamari was so heavily covered in batter that you could not taste the calamari. I ordered a filet and it looked like a small piece of sirloin when it came. My wife's taco's were so piled with extra dressings that she could not pick them up with her hands; she had to eat them with a fork. The service was slow an not coordinated in its delivery. Our appetizer, calamari, was not served with small plates which made it messy to eat. Shortly after the appetizer arrived, our salad and dinner was delivered together. The waiter was slow to come and check on us and I was close to finished eating before my second glass of wine arrived. We like Houlihan's but this was the worse service and meal we have received there. I will give it a pass by saying that most restaurants are having difficulty with the restart after the Pandemic shut down. I will wait before I would recommend Houlihan's to a friend.

We set reservations which was good they were crowded. There was nowhere to park. We had to park in the mall parking lot and walk across the street. Service left a lot to be desired. The hostess wasn’t the most personable hostess I’ve ever met. The waitress had a good personality. The food took longer than expected to get to us. No one really checked on us while we were waiting. Once we got the food it was fantastic.
I highly recommend the Scallops

Waited an hour after ordering our food, was told it got lost in the shuffle, never received our appetizer, and still had to pay in full. The manager could have at least came out and tried to apologize rather than leaving it to the waiter who may not have been at fault.

I visit this Houlihans restaurant two or three times a month and this visit wasn't up to the normal standards. My bowl of soup had been spilled on the plate and frankly looked like a mess. Our server looked like he slept in his shirt and was very inattentive. We would have understood his lack of service if the restaurant had been full but it was almost empty when we arrived; it did fill up eventually. We had to ask for refills on water and iced tea more than once and then for ice since both were lacking it. Our orders were done correctly but the waiter's general attitude was not up to this restaurant's usual service levels. We will be back however, as the food is always consistently good. I am hoping they finally return the chicken tortilla soup to the menu though!!

Houlihans has always been a favorite of mine may not always be the first place I choose to go to but it’s always a great place to grab a quick dinner especially when you have grandkids with you. I ordered the char crusted Ahi tuna salad and it was good, but I did have to ask for a little more dressing. The real disappointment came when I saw the chicken tenders that the grandkids ordered, they look like big clumps of overcooked breaded chicken. Not only did it look unappealing the taste was not good either. I should’ve taken a picture and posted it. I feel like children, grandchildren deserve better. If you put effort into adult meals put effort into kid meals too.
