    This is a kosher steakhouse and the prices are a little high. But, that's to be expected. It's also not open Friday evening or Saturday. The service is always excellent; I've eaten there quite a few times. I highly recommend the beer battered asparagus, the onion ring tower, and the steaks. Also, Leah's Back is the best drink ever!

    This is by no means an upscale restaurant as it pretends to be. None of us ate but a few bites of our food, from the dry lackluster $24 burgers to the $55 chewy flavorless ribeye steak with old and cold mashed potatoes, oh and the over cooked spaghetti with a watery sauce. We actually had to stop on our way home and eat somewhere else. This place has a dingy cheap feeling to it, and when we walked in we should of went with our guy instinct and walked out. You can see my more detailed review on yelp.

    Genesis Steakhouse is the place to go for wining and dining guests as well as family lunchs and dinners. The waitstaff was available without being intrusive, our tuna, sea bass and filets were delicious and plentiful We started off the beef taco and mediterranen appetizers which were tasty and filled with flavor. Highly recommend Genesis. Martha B

    I made our reservation through the Open Table app about 45 min before we wanted to go to the restaurant. When we arrived, we found out the restaurant was friggin’ CLOSED on Saturdays...wtf? I mean, I get the Kosher thing, but if they’re closed every Saturday, why the hell was I able to make a reservation? Luckily, Smith & Wollensky was able to accommodate us, and we had a fabulous night out!

    We were a party of five and had a very enjoyable dinner at Genesis. Our waiter was so helpful; was there when we needed anything, giving great recommendations without hovering and without rushing us in any way. Noise was low so we could enjoy conversation. The main course was delicious and just the right portion for me but I wasn’t crazy about the desert.

    Had a Valentine's reservation and they called to confirm. We asked if we could change from 2 to 3 people and were advised absolutely no room. We were seated at a 2 top when booths were available. Many, many open tables and there would have been no problem to seat 3 of us. The lighting was bright for a romantic evening. Food was good. Service was great.

    Although they have Steakhouse in the name, I would not classify it as such. The menu is very diverse and they differentiate themselves by being completely Kosher. The food quality was good, but very 'average'. The service was excellent! We left feeling like we had a decent meal, but it just did not make for a particularly memorable place that I would look forward to returning for anytime soon.

    Very quick seating after arrival and immediate drink/wine service. Delivery of food was prompt after placing the order and was accurate. Food was hot, tasty and attractively presented. Very wide range of items on menu including sushi. Wait staff was very patient and helpful since our group included a 29 month old who wanted another order of nigiri midway through the meal. Steaks were excellent as was fish entrees. And, don't skip dessert; they were exceptional.

    Although it touts its steaks, the fish here is among the best I've had outside of Manhattan, Cape Cod and the Pacific coast. When they have red snapper (they only serve fresh, never frozen) it is the best you've ever had. When they don't, I have the tuna. My sister-in-law had the sea bass. They crust it with your choice of almond, pecan and/or pecan (she got all three) and said it was the best she'd ever had. My son had the 24 oz cowboy steak and saved only the bone for our dogs. My daughter, who usually gets a steak, had the chicken marsala special and loved it. My husband and his dad had huge The Bruce burger. I reserved online and let them know it was for my husband's birthday and that one of our party had special requirements for seating, and they had the perfect table for us, asked where I would like the individual seated (without embarrassing the person) and had a surprise birthday dessert ready. They have an entire menu for sushi, which is made fresh to order, and the sushi chef makes the snapper ceviche and tuna poke, which are amazing. The Sunday brunch is great, especially if you like chicken and waffles and hand-mixed drinks (the Jackrabbit is my favorite - made with fresh carrot juice). The happy hour lasts 'til 7 and is one of the best deals I've seen. You have to eat at the bar, but the food is amazing and they make this very fresh, crisp cocktail with jalapeños that is worth braving galleria traffic to get there from work. They offer a selection of apps on the happy hour menu; my favorites are the snapper ceviche (which is a little bit spicy) and the tuna poke, but my kids love the sliders, short rib tacos and the onion ring tower. The onion rings are made in-house and totally worth the calories. I've also been to several weddings catered by Genesis. If you're ever that lucky, ask for a plate with just the smoked beef ribs; I'm sure everything else is very good, but in comparison, it's a waste of space that could be occupied by ribs!

    Mediocre service. We went with out of town kosher family to talk and had no idea Thurs night they have a singer. Too loud for us to have a conversation. I tasted a few wines and they were all terrible. Nothing from Sonoma or France and this is supposed to be a wine bar?? Very disappointed.

    I went because I've wanted to try the food at Genesis for a while now, intrigued by the idea of a Kosher steakhouse. I had no idea they served sushi, so I left that for another time. I also wanted to support their efforts in Houston Restaurant Weeks so I went for lunch. There must have only been one server working because his demeanor was rather off; he seemed very displeased with me being there, alone, on a Tuesday afternoon for lunch. The chicken dish off the HRW menu was very disappointing: Bland, overcooked, and just underwhelming. The "Persian Rice" was white rice with much too much dill and some green peas. The sauce had a great texture but there was almost no basil present in the Basil Cream Sauce. The chicken was overcooked and the filling was rather bland as well. However, the dessert course was very good. The Chocolate Babka itself was worth the price of admission. Not overly sweet, tender dough, exactly as I remember from great bakeries in NYC. The vanilla ice cream had very little vanilla in it but that could be due to the fact that the sweetness of the pastry and the sauces on the plate were covering it up. I have no doubt that Genesis is a fine steakhouse and the rest of the menu looks and sounds fantastic, but I left very underwhelmed. I'll need to give it a proper try some other time. Cheers.

    As expensive as Capital Grille (my favorite) with bad food and so so service. The only redeeming factor is if you happen to be orthodox Jewish is that's its kosher ("literally!"). That also means they're closed for the sabbath (e.g. Friday and Saturday).
