Food and service were excellent - from a great mushroom soup to seared ribeye and cauliflower steak - wow, it was all so good.

We had an 8:15pm dinner reservation. We waited at the bar for our table for close to an hour. The hostess was very apologetic and bought us a round of drinks, which was very nice. We were not seated until after 9pm, which is quite late to be starting dinner. Our food was very good, as usual, and our server was attentive, albeit not very refined for an upscale restaurant like HW.

I didn’t expect to be seated outside. It was a little buggy and warm. Our waitress from FL was excellent but slow to get our order and our water refilled.
Delmonico was delicious under cooked for our guest.
It probably would have been 5 stars if we were inside.

Great service and meal was good. We shared the Tomahawk steak and the wedge salad. The wedge was the least
Favorite and by far the worst wedge of any high end steak houses we have experienced. Deserts were amazing.

Lovely meal outdoors on a balmy evening, our server was fantastic (Sandy I think? From Alaska and West Palm), all four of us really enjoyed our dishes. The only disappointment was the lack of bubbles by the glass, and the extremely high prices of the wine and champagne by the bottle. We just dined at the Inn at Little Washington last week (one of only 20 restaurants in the US with 3 Michelin stars) and these prices rivaled those. HW, get some more affordable wines if you want the locals like us to patronize you more frequently. Also some big fans might help to discourage flies, it’s a nice outdoor space but very closed in with no air movement.
Bottom line: the food, service and ambiance were all excellent, we’ll return for special occasions... and more if you amend your wine list.

Everything was good but I was disappointed they did not have sour cream for my baked potato. They also do not offer cappuccino and the desserts they had were not appealing either.

Our waiter was very nice and I felt a bit bad for him but the wait time was horrendous and the staff all knew it. We finally asked for some compensation to the check. In hindsight I still think we still paid way too much. The food is VERY over-priced for what it is, I expected more.

In fairness they are just getting back to being fully open and I know that's been a challenge finding help but doesn't explain the situation or the prices. They were making excuses and large parties before us and the ac breaking in the kitchen..etc. We had plans to take our company out in the town after that terrible meal the only thing to do was go home.

The owner was there, that's who they had to check with about a discount and they never came out to apologize which I don't understand, having been in hospitality for many years. They should have picked up the check!

I live around the corner and won't be back nor recommend. This restaurant would have done the right thing by apologizing and giving us a return visit on them.

I rarely/never write bad reviews, and it hurts to do it but if you're looking to spend $400-$500 on dinner don't do it here.

Another amazing dinner. Cotes de Rhone Blanc was out of this world. Nice to see some different varietals. Steve was our waiter - again- and fantastic as always. He had a lovely guy shadowing him during training and is showing promise of being a great server. Outdoor seating to enjoy the great weather and watching all the antics on Rehoboth Avenue. Ramp risotto? yes please! Cant wait to dine again.

We had a wonderful experience at Houston White Co. We had a 9pm reservation, the party before us had not finished their meal, so we had to wait. Not to fear, we were seated in the bar area and given complimentary wine while we waited. Once we got to our table, we were seated by the kitchen - it was fun to watch the staff prep and present meals. The ambience was warm and welcoming. Our server Jason and the rest of the staff was friendly and informative. The pacing of our meal was perfect - we did not feel rushed, nor did we ever feel like we were waiting. The food was delicious, the steak and crab cakes well seasoned and expertly prepared! The sides were delicious and not too heavy. We loved our experience! Thanks Houston White Co. for a wonderful meal - our first meal out in over a year!

Outstanding experience.
Our server, Sarah, epitomized what good service should be.
She knew the menu and guided us to a perfectly prepared Delmonico steak and to our surprise ’shrimp & grits’.
Both were perfectly prepared and extremely tasty.
We started with Oysters HWCO and finished with Bread Pudding.
Cocktails and wine were also above par.

We are locals and had been planning to try Houston & White then COVID hit. We decided at the last minute to make a reservation and go this past Friday. The service and drinks were amazing but the dinner itself was even better. The steaks were cooked perfectly and tender and the sides were delicious. This is our number 2 for the area with Heirloom still being our first love.
