We went during Houston Restaurant Weeks 2019. The Restaurant Weeks menu had a nice selection. My sirloin steak had a delightful peppercorn sauce that I really enjoyed. The key lime pie was superb!!

The food was alright and my steak wasn't prepared the way I order it. My friends were eating and I didn't want to prolong dinner by sending it back. The drinks prices were outrageous. I could have purchased a bottle of Prosecco for the two glasses I paid for. I don't have a problem with paying but suggested are always nice. Also, I used two American express gift cards and I was charged twice for a tip. Really? Why? My first visit and probably last.

Food and service were fabulous.....it was listed on the Houston Restaurant Week menus so we decided to give it a try. I’d for sure go back, sadly there were very few dining when we arrived, by the time our meal was over, we were the only ones in the entire restaurant. But the food, well worth trying. I’d love to go back.

I have been here twice. Once for Valentine's Day two years ago and again today with my coworker to check out the 2019 Houstons Restaurant Weeks Lunch Menu.

The first experience was great. Top notch formal service, great ambiance, attentive staff. I had grilled fish, steamed asparagus, "creamed" spinach and later bisque.
This second visit I had the house salad which was great and steak medallions two ways that came with a small scoop of sweet potatoes and creamed spinach. For my third course I selected the cheesecake.
My steak medallions were absolutely more medium rare than medium. I cut around the outside. I liked the different sauce on both. I should have requested medium well apparently. The sweet potatoes lacked flavor and soul. Really needs some butter and brown sugar. The creamed spinach has sucked both times. It's actually not creamy at all and they put a thin layer of cheese on top for some reason. My cheesecake was good but the portion was small and looked mangled in my to go box once I got back to work.


I'm not completely sure if I would visit again unless it was a business lunch or corporate function where I'm not paying. I know this restaurant has been around for a long time and it's a staple in the Oil/Gas community but they haven't wowed me yet. I'm sure the majority of their patrons don't mind very lightly seasoned food or their meat more on the rare side...If you get my drift.

When I made the reservation online for Lynn's, I added a little note it was for a birthday. To our surprise, when we were sat at our table, the serving staff all signed a card wishing a Happy Birthday and even served dessert with a birthday message on the plate. It really made the evening feel special. The decor was eclectic with rich woods and clean linens and as the manager described "old school". The staff was professional and courteous. The wine selection was extensive. And they cook a good steak :-) Go figure. We were very pleased to find this gem on the west side of Houston.

My steak was cooked to perfection, excellent taste.My wife's fish was over cooked and dry. She told the waiter but he didn't offer to get her a new one.We where very disappointed with his attitude. Then he got a big table and our service went down hill.I enjoyed my food but my wife was disappointed.

Lynn's is always consistent. Every visit has met or exceeded my expectations. Crab cake appetizer is a great starter. Steaks were prepared to the correct temperature. Salmon with sauce was also enjoyed.

The express lunch is well worth the trip to Lynn's even after the Memorial traffic challenges. I suggest you arrive from the North.

The steak, salad, bread, and drinks were great. The service was above expectation. Chris the waiter was personable and very attentive. Will definitely be back. I got the “cowboy” ribeye and it was done to perfection. Took home the left overs and they were great the next day. Got two meals for the price of one.

Overall food quality (at lunch) was ok but not comenserate to the check. We ordered separately but should have stuck with the business lunch. The food tended to be over salted, buttered, creamed, or came with gravy to mask the average quality.

Don’t know why we’ve never stopped in before. Old school lovely steak house ambiance, quiet and romantic. Service was great and friendly. We were celebrating a birthday and even were surprised with dessert ‘. The filet was perfect Pittsburgh rate just as we asked. Au gratin potatoes were good as well. We will definitely be back!!

We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary and the staff and management made us feel so welcome. The food was fantastic. I had the small filet and my husband had the Chateau Briand. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great.

Thanks you so much for making this an anniversary to remember!

This place is a hidden gem. My wife and I decided to give them a try for our anniversary dinner and they did not disappoint. They acknowledged our anniversary and presented us with desert on the house with happy wishes for our 29th inscribed on the plate in chocolate syrup.
Their location and the way the restaurant blends into the strip mall neighborhood gave me a little concern, but after looking at interior photos online it looked like a nice place.
The owner and our server, Chris, made us feel right at home. The food was fantastic. Tough to comment on the price as this wasn’t a normal meal out and we splurged quite a bit. We will definitely be going back though. We really loved this place.

Found this place on our trip to Houston this weekend. Wanted steak. All other booked up but glad this place was not. From Jerry the owner/manager to the wait staff totally a 5. I had cowboy steak and was perfectly cooked and flavor. Also the salad with the warm goat cheese was perfect. The french decor was a treat and no you cannot judge a book by it's cover. Go through the front door then decide. Really good place

My wife and I try and come to Lynn's every year for our anniversary. We haven't been in a while since we moved out of town. As always, the experience was excellent. Their wine list is second to none. I had the rack of lamb (OMG - so good and came with asparagus, new potatoes and broccoli) plenty of left overs for the next evening's dinner. My wife had the snapper with crab on top - WOW! Service is always as good as it gets and the quiet romantic atmosphere was perfect for our special evening out - "We'll be back"!

The AC was not working at all so it was too warm, stuffy and unpleasant.. The fresh bread, that usually is the best part of the meal and usually better than anywhere else, was semi-dry, clearly not fresh baked, and I’m pretty sure was held over from the day before. The service, as usual, was top notch, the staff is very friendly and professional. The sides were great, the steaks were seasoned well and very good. My wife ordered medium and her steak was served medium well. I ordered med well and my steak was served well done. Over all, pretty disappointing. This was our third time there. The first two times we ate there exceeded our expectations. Our third, (and final trip) was somewhat disappointing. It’s an expensive place, maybe my expectations are too high, but I don’t think so.
