This was our first visit to Kirby’s. We arrived early and they were able to seat us early. Service was 1st class. Great wine selection and great selection of steaks and seafood. A little noisy due to some large groups of business meetings , but not too loud. The steak was cooked to perfection with both taste and tenderness. The deserts were great us well. We plan on returning and you want be disappointed.

Food - very mediocre. Steak was burnt on the outside and raw in the middle. We were asked if it was “warm red” in the middle and we felt a little intimidated. We had asked for medium rare which is not abnormal. We felt the server and management were taking “down” to us.
Also Server was “animated” - weird.
Overall - strange evening.
The Starters were good but main course VERY disappointing.
Would certainly question whether we will revisit.

We went to one of our all time favorites for my wife's birthday. As usual, it did not disappoint in any way. She had the sea bass and I had the 7 oz. filet, both were cooked to perfection. Aubrey, our waitress, was very attentive without being intrusive and provided excellent service. Highly recommended for that special celebration or occasion.

We dined at Kirby’s to celebrate my brother’s birthday, the day after his son’s wedding. This was a great way to round out the weekend. Service was excellent, accommodating food allergies and a special request for mac and cheese for the toddler. The steaks were cooked as requested and were flavorful and tender. Would definitely return for a good meal.

Enjoyable experience! Food was good although the jalapeño mac n cheese was a little disappointing since we thought it needed a little more cheese flavor. Steak was great though! Service was awesome! Will definitely go back.

This place was wonderful! This was for a surprise anniversary dinner for my wife, and it was a better-than-expected experience! Our waiter Shay was awesome. We were actually really late for our reservation, and the staff saved the private booth for us still.
The food was euphoric!
Will definitely recommend to everyone! Thanks Kirby's!!!

We celebrated my Mother in Laws 80th Birthday there last Sunday, was quite surprised by both the Happy Hour deals, as well as the wine list deals, fantastic!! Rave revue by entire family. It had been a few years since we had dined at Kirby's, but now is THE place we will dine. Excellent service, meals for all were on temperature, as ordered and delicious. Whether it is Steak or Seafood, you will not be disappointed!!

The 10 oz filet steak was perfect as always. My wife had the applewood bacon wrapped pork chop which I can safely say is the best pork chop I have even eaten. The lobster escargot is so good it's indescribable! Kirby's is consistent on its food and service quality.

Bar area was great with some fantastic appetizers. Our meals for the evening for extremely disappointing. We dined with Kirby's last year for restaurant week and it was one of our favorite meals. This past visit was completely opposite. The food was terrible. It seemed like the chef was not interested in putting out quality food for the restaurant week menu. I would not recommend as a place to try for this occasion.

This was our first experience at Kirby's and it couldn't have been more disappointing. We patronize many Houston Restaurant Weeks participating restaurants each year to both support the Houston Food Bank as well as to try out new places. We have found that most restaurants use Houston Restaurant Weeks as an opportunity to showcase the best of their kitchen's work so that patrons return often. Instead, Kirby's seemed to be using their Restaurant Weeks menu to showcase the least of their menu in order to upsell constantly and mercilessly. As only a few of many examples, the wait staff did not bring the Restaurant Weeks menu until asked, then "warned" us that the servings were smaller than normal, and then suggested that we might prefer to add another course to fill out our meal. The wine "suggestions" on the Restaurant Weeks menu were all over $100/bottle for mediocre selections and then, when asked about a specific wine's flavor profile, ignored the question and instead responded with a suggestion for another (25% more expensive) wine that would "fit the preferred profile". And, lastly, the service was far from the standards of a first class restaurant, although would have been perfectly acceptable at Denny's. In summary, I'm sure that the five patrons in our party will never return and will discourage others from going there if asked.

This is an excellent steak house. The steaks are perfectly cooked and not overly seasoned. The decor is very beautiful and the service is superb. We did not utilize it, but the bar area looks very fun. The only criticism we have is the noise level. It is very noisy and makes conversation difficult. Overall we had a very nice evening at Kirby's.
