I have always enjoyed dining at Laurenzo's and tonight was no exception, I had the BEST shrimp and grits, thanks to Chef Phil and my server Ron and I was given a celebratory serenade by Edgar and friends. Thank you Domenic for such a great establishment with outstanding employees. This meal as of this writing was my best so far for 2018. Looking forward to returning!
This place never disappoints! My favorite in Houston.
Food and service were great. They take reserves and we were seated pretty much on time. It was Easter Sunday and we were not rushed to make room for the next seating. Had a great time!
Had Easter brunch with the family. Great food and great service. We will definitely be going back.
The food was not impressive. The spinach and artichoke dip tasted weird. None of us could figure out why. I had the shrimp and grits that should have been served with a spoon because it was mainly just sauce and shrimp... maybe there was 2% of grits in the meal. Unfortunately later, I was super sick to my stomach. The rest of my guests did not enjoy their meals either. It was super loud too. I felt like I was yelling to have a conversation. All in all, I DON'T recommend at all.
Easter brunch is something we had not done at Laurenzo’s.
We have eaten dinner many times.
The employees are always friendly and provide good service. The only complaint I have is that the Hardwood grilled chicken breast was very dry (and a little bland in my opinion), but the other dishes we ordered were very good and full of flavor. We will be back!
We enjoyed a family get together...the food was good.
We love it. Filet miñon was great. Wedge salad good as well
We love Laurenzo’s! And it was especially great for Valentines Day!
This restaurant is one of the most friendliest restaurants I've ever been to in my entire life. The food is great, service great and and the waiters are awesome! I would definitely recommend this restaurant or any occasion.
The atmosphere was inviting, great food and great service.
Our waiter was excellent. I am sorry I not remember his name.
The food here is always terrific, and the service is warm, friendly, and very accommodating. Our server on our most recent visit, Adam, was outstanding. An added bonus is that on Monday nights, bottles of wine are 50% off. This gives guests an opportunity to try something that might ordinarily be a little above their preferred price point. Overall, it always feels like everyone there goes above and beyond to ensure a great dining experience. Highly recommended.
AS ALWAYS, I FIND THIS RESTAURANT CONSISTENTLY GOOD WITH THEIR SPECIALTIES, WHICH ARE THE PRIME RIB, APPETIZERS AND ABOVE ALL ELSE, THE ITALIAN CREME CAKE. THE SERVICE IS FRIENDLY, WITHOUT BEING IN YOUR FACE, AND THE AMBIANCE IS COMFORTABLE WITHOUT BEING "KITCHY". THE WINE LIST IS EXPRESSIVE OF GOOD TASTE, YET IT WON'T BREAK THE BANK!
Great food with a varied menu that you're sure to find something you like. And our server was great. Very knowledgeable of the whole menu and gave great recommendations
We enjoyed our meal. We did notice the menu had changed and some of our favorites were no longer on menu.
Great service. Best prime rib in the city
This was our first time and I have to say that although you were recommended by a couple people I found everything but the ambiance sub par. It started with our “seemingly annoyed” waiter “Dago” (I think that’s what his name was). He seemed to be annoyed with the fact that we asked if the pizza was good..... he replied with “well when we opened the restaurant we founded it on steak and seafood”. Well after that matter of fact statement of our waiter I was sure that my choice for the $41 ribeye! Well contrary to what the opinion of the waiter we went ahead and ordered the pizza for my fiancé. I mean, who would put a bad item on the menu and KEEP it on the menu if it was not good. I will say this, the BRIGHT side is that the Queso was really good... probably one of the best I’ve had in Houston. While waiting for our food I think our waiter came by maybe once and all the while i looked around and saw each other waiters actually look like they enjoyed their job but by the luck of the draw we got “mr personality”. Well our dinner finally came and honestly when the pizza came out it actually looked like it had been sitting out under the lamp for a long while. Cheese was not gooey or fresh it was more like a day old pizza in the fridge. Oh but the best is yet to come..... when my steak came out the steak was no thicker that a 1/2” AT BEST.... i didn’t think i was going to get an amazing thick high end steak as i would at Capital Grille but seriously i could have had the same exact steak for $25 at Saltgrass!!! Lastly when your waiter says that’s your specialty and the French fries have more flavor than the steak..... well that was the straw that broke the camels back. I am not one to send things back as i have worked in that field so i just sucked it up and ate and paid and even tipped well but I will not recommend nor give a great review. Funny think when we were leaving we say each table have a basket of bread on the table, but we were never offered that. Not happy.
Always a fave! Great food, great service! Easy to get to and always smells so good when you get out of the car!
Fabulous, just like every time we go.
Service is great, food is great.
Food & service were excellent as always!
As always, it was a stellar experience
I had a great meal and the waiter took great care of me.
Great food - we love the Prime Rib - although we also like the sausage ravioli and the french dip sandwich.
I love Laurenzo's. I don't go often, but when I do it's memorable.
Always a GOOD SOLID dining experience...variety of menu items to please everyone...
Nice atmosphere, with bar...Delicious Eggs Benedict and Grits!!
A bit loud sometimes, but we had a great corner table this time. We love the mix of Italian and Mexican food which so exemplifies the Laurenzo family! A great place to bring the family, always a happy staff, and just good food.
We went for a mini reunion and on the reputation for Steak and Prime Rib. The steaks were great. The prime rib was a disappointment. for 32.00 we got a very small prime rib and while both ordered medium; one had a very well done piece and one had a rare piece. So, that was odd. We have been before and not been disappointed; so I would go again; but if you are going to have a reputation for prime rib, where we drive from all parts to get said prime rib; it should be consistently delicious or inform your clients you are "out".
Scheduled dinner early with two other friends. They said their meals were good, not exceptional or anything to write home about. Calimari was ok, gumbo ok; however,
I was in the mood for a Burger and it was a BIG disappointment. I asked for it well done and it was still pink in the middle; the lettuce, or watever green stuff was put on it for lettuce was awful . The Burger literally fell apart in my hands after I took one bite. For a $17 Burger, I expect excellence. This was mediocre at best. Won't go back.
Great restaurant great service fantastic food
While self-labeled a "Steakhouse" Lorenzo's is more of an everyday type eatery, nothing special but a good spot for "eating" not necessarily "dining". More along the lines of a Chili's or sports bar with a little better food. As expected, the Tex-Mex blends into the menu from the other members of this family owned local chain of restaurants, but with the addition of some "meat" and "fish" entrees.
Their flagship dish is their Prime Rib, which is good, but not to the caliber of typical steakhouses. When you consider a 16 oz. Prime Rib at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse is only $1 more than Lorenzo's and the quality is miles apart, you might reconsider your next Prime Rib Destination. Stick to their other entrees and you'll be much more pleased.
We started off with the Grilled Artichokes, which took me back to The Hitching Post II in Buellton. The were grilled perfectly with just the right amount of smoky flavor; a homerun. We had two, I suggest you get three; we are actually two or three "halves" not 2 or 3 whole artichokes. Also shared the Roasted Beet Salad, and the accommodated us by serving it in two plates without our asking. Salad was fresh with tasty roasted red beets.
I had the Pork Carne Asada "La Tana", and it was excellent. Tender pork charrasco style smoother in cheese and Serrano peppers; I asked for additional peppers and was glad I did so. The rice and beans that accompanied the pork wasn't worth the trouble, next time I'll ask for a substitute. My wife had the 8 oz. cut of Prime Rib, about 4 oz. of meat and 4 oz. of fat, which she doesn't care for. Prime Rib is always fatty, but this one was way heavy on the fatty compared to average.
Wine list is limited and carries the "X 2-1/2 to 3" markup on the majority of the wines on the list. Nothing notable about the wine list. Remember it's more like a Chili's with lipstick.
Greeters were not friendly at all. I was looking down at my phone and one of them just repeatedly barked hello at me to get my attention. Then as we were walking to the table the other greeter was very short and uncaring. I’ve been coming here for a while. Pretty disappointed.
This restaurant has always been consistently a great dining experience.
Laurenzo's is just plain good.....good food, good service, good ambiance. We had our New Year's Eve dinner plans cancelled at the last minute and we're able to get an early evening reservation at Laurenzo's. They came through again with a top notch dining experience! I will be back....
Our favorite place for Sunday brunch! The crepes are delicious!
When it was time to gather friends together for a holiday dinner, naturally we chose Laurenzo's. We've dined with friends there before and we love the place -- wonderful ambiance, tastey food and terrific wait staff. A great way to end 2017 -- and to get ready for 2018.
Huge selection of items. All good. The prime rib is spectacular.
