Loved the food, by far the best ever. The place where they sat us was right under the speakers and the music was overpowering our conversations. Other than that we love steak 48

There are plenty of good steakhouses in Houston, service and side dishes make this restaurant stand out. Five of us went, we had king crab stack, pork belly, iceberg BLT, prime rib, scallop, creme brûlée corn, brussels sprouts, mac n cheese. Prime rib and scallops were good as expected. Creme brûlée corn and pork belly were simply outstanding, crab stack was very good but it was a little too sour for my taste. We were all quite full but took one desert anyway, banana split. It was unusual and superbly done.
Our head waiter, Ryan, and other waitstaff did not miss a single thing from start to finish. When we ordered only one desert, they still put out five services so we all had 2-3 bites of the Banana Split.

After calling to be sure our table of 5 was not by a doorway or a service area, guess where they sat us? Not impressed and the food was mediocre although the waitstaff worked hard. Don’t trust Ashley if you speak to her about your reservation. She was also rude when we left. We will not return.

We made reservations through Open Table and were really impressed with the level of service and attention to detail. We were sat upon arrival for our reservation and the ambiance was nice. Very dim lighting but seems like blinds were opened which helped to see better. Our server, Arthur, was just perfect! His knowledge of the menu and suggestions were perfect. Pleased the whole way through on our date.

Food was fair for the pricing, quantity good, I did like the relaxed yet tasteful dining room. Our waiter was very attentive and constantly made sure we were doing ok, it was my birthday and the waiter offered me a dessert for my birthday which was pretty cool. I would return to Steak 48 again the experience was pretty good.

Well...
This was my first visit. Food was good. Comparing Steak 48 to Killen’s Steakhouse they each have good qualities. I would probably go to Killen’s again before Steak 48.
The major problem I have is my car was broken into while in valet . I was understanding but three days out and no calls back after talking to Al and Dane . I was assured “everything will be taken care of “ but NOTHING. Why have someone watching valet cars “if this happens all the time” as I was told by the valet workers. The establishment needs to spend some money and put cameras up like all nice steakhouse places have.

I'll make this quick: I really enjoyed Steak 48. The eponymous dish - in this case a boneless strip - was perfectly prepared and delicious. The starters (we ordered two salads and the burrata for the table) were pretty good, particularly the wedge. The sides were especially good - the creme bruleed corn was outstanding.

But I have to deduct a few points for drinks, and service. On the drinks front, I guess the fault is in part mine; I ordered a subpar bottle of wine (and should have known better). The Manhattan, though, could have been better. I ordered it their house perfect Manhattan (equal parts sweet and dry vermouth), and given that the vermouth will make or break the drink, I think that's where they went wrong. I couldn't see behind the bar so I can't say for sure what they used, but it tasted like the universal and underwhelming Martini & Rossi or something similar. That said, for $18 I got what was in essence two drinks so I can't complain that much.

The service, on the other hand, was just too much. A little overwhelming, too much detail, too much hovering, as if we'd never been to a steakhouse in our collective lives (narrator: they had). Maybe it was just our waiter, or maybe it's a restaurant culture thing (and I lean towards this explanation given the occasionally inexplicable soundtrack), but we all found it rather off-putting.

Still, I'd give the place another try next time I'm in town.

The food and service was outstanding. The major problem we had was with the seating. Our table was next to the area where credit cards are run and was constantly packed with busboys and servers having idle conversations behind the entry way at the entrance to our dining room. It was very crowded and hard to hear the table conversation,

Great food, overwhelming service. In 5 mins we had 3 waiters asking us we wanted this or that, kind of pushing us to buy aperitivo, antipasto, ecc. Not a big deal, they do it in many places. What I really didn't like was the way we for charged for wine. We asked for 2 glasses of red wine (Cabernet) and the waiter filled our glasses leaving the bottle on the table. Couple of times during the dinner he came by our table and refilled our glasses without even asking if we wanted more (just like they do with coffee in breakfast places). Long story short, he ended up emptying the whole bottle and he charged for the whole bottle. Very uncool and unfair I would say.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with steak 48. Our server, Ian, was extremely pleasant and helpful, as were the rest of the staff we encountered. The food was marvelous, our steaks were done to our specifications and the hot lavender-scented towel at the end of the meal was an extremely nice touch. we can't wait to return!

I’ve been to Steak 48 in Houston twice over the past month. Hands down it is the best restaurant I’ve been to. Aside from the high quality food that comes to the table hot, the service was second to none! It is the only restaurant that called me the following day to see how my dining experience was and if there was anything else they could have done to make it better. In a word...outstanding!

PROS--They food was delicious, hot and enough to leave satisfied. CONS--My wife is disabled and they had to bring her thru the kitchen as there was no ramp to go to the other level of the restaurant. Maybe in your next location you can accommodate the disabled. Also the opening where our table was located did not accommodate my power chair. The lamb Chops were hugely overpriced. We explained to the waiter that we were newbies and he should have explained when the lambchops were ordered, it will be $84.00. Del Frisco's, Pappas Brothers and Ruth Chris Steakhouse all have Lambchops from Colorado priced significantly lower. ($54.00 - $63.00.) Your price was ridiculous and felt like price gauging. None of the drinks have free refills, and still cost $3.50 each. Maybe re-review the menu costs.

This was my 2nd time here. The first time I wasnt thrilled with my steak and the management went above and beyond to rectify that experience. My food was outstanding asd the service is second to none. This will definitely become a regular spot for me. Thanks to the manager (Patrick) for all he did.
