The contre-fillet and the Surlonge ordered both medium, arrived at my table literally 5 minutes later. It was already cooked and heat in the microwave! As well it was RARE !!! I asked for medium. The service of the waitress was very good. Square-Victoria location.

Waitress took about 20 minutes to bring drinks and we had to ask for the dessert menu twice. She wasn't very attentive to our table.

We went for an early dinner before the hockey, we ate in the bar area and enjoyed the lively atmosphere. The service was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed the sliders.

After waiting for what seemed like forever with no food but just our drinks, I asked if perhaps they had bread for the table. She told me yes but I had to ask her for it. Why would I need to ask for that??? We were 7 women waiting for forever. Then after an hour when the food finally showed up, only half the table got served and the others had to wait another 10 minutes!! Service was really, really bad.

Food was good but however, 3 out of 4 meals were prepared incorrectly. Steaks that were to be medium were well done. They also seems to have a problem with fruit flies as i had to send my beer back because dead bugs were in it twice(yum!). Our server was taking shots two tables over with two drunk angrily women who clearly had too much to drink and should have been cut off and sent home in a cab. For this terrible service our waitress should have been fired.

I wish you had 10+ stars. Couldn't have asked for a better evening celebrating my daughters birthday. We have made this our yearly birthday dinner place. The service was exceptional along with the food, perfect. Thank you Houstons for everything. Lexxi loved her birthday cake too.

Our waiter was very nice and friendly, but the hostess and other waitresses were quite cold and not very welcoming. The decor was very nice; the place was clean and chic. Our table was in a great spot and everything was very neat. It was not super busy so it was not very noisy, but we went for an early dinner; as we were leaving, the big crowds were coming in and it was getting quite noisy. The bathrooms were also very nice and clean. The mushroom side dish was the only meal that was not good; it was rather burnt. The filet mignon and the ribs were superb. The onion soup was ok and the chicken was a little bland. The bloody caesar was very delicious.

The atmosphere is just ok. Nothing exceptional ans especially not for an intimate diner for a couple (with the waitresses in very short outfits, felt more like a sports bar). For us, the service was slow. At times we thought there have forgotten us, but the ladies were nice and polite. The food: NOT WORTH THE PRICE. Sure the steak is good but without a WOW factor. We can't choose our own accompaniments. There`s no entrees, no salad or soup with the steak, The few vegetables they do serve the dish with is to hard to cut with a knife. Not a very large choice of cocktail or desert. Overall I felt cheapen.

3 steaks (3 dinners) with nerves, hard to cut even with knives. Ribs (another dinner) were cold. For the price we pay, the food is bad ! We eat at many restaurant and it was the worst place. We won't come back. Sorry. The service from the waitress was very good.

As expected, excellent service from our waitress. I had reserved a table close to the bar where the actions are and was very satisfied. The hostess was quick to guide us to our table and food/drink order didn't take long to come around. I go weekly for lunch there but its so busy that I have to start reserving for a good table unless you want a private business conversation in the back room.

Not really an acceptable experience at all that the food (prime rib and accompaniments) was cold. Service was friendly but sometimes slow ( bread came after soup and had to be requested). A shame because my experience at Houston's in Santa Monica has always been outstanding. Based on this experience, I doubt that either of us would be inclined return to this outlet in Victoria Square.

We were a group of 22 and were very well served by one waitress (for orders) and a team of supporters when the meals were served. I don't know how she did it, but it was fast and flawless. Everybody with drinks were well attended to and their glasses didn't make it to empty before being offered another. Well done!

Great experience, food is delicious and the portion's were very generous!! the only thing that I disliked was when our waitress asked us if we wanted to share the mushrooms with our steaks, I replied with "yes" since I don't really like mushrooms, later after receiving my bill, they charged me extra for that, when clearly the waitress didn't specify that it was included or not, but other then that, excellent !!

We cannot stop sharing our first experience at Houston. It was perfect from arrival to departure. Stephania was wonderful. I want to thank you for the birthday cake. I know I had mentioned it in reservation but it was a terrific surprise to see it was recognized. Highly recommended to all and we will be back soon.

I had a spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese. I asked for dressing on the side. The salad was dripping with dressing (which obviously wasn't on the side) and the strawberries were all spoiled. Absolutely horrible!
