Editorial review from Citysearch

If I could give this place a negative score, I would. I bought a Groupon for this place and figured I would give it a shot. I should have known something was wrong with Houston St. Bistro because it was Friday night at 8pm and there were only 2 other tables taken in the entire restaurant.

I checked out the website before I went and saw that they advertised 1/2 price bottle of wine after 8pm. Sounded great, so

First off I should say I didn’t even get any farther than the tap water on the table and here’s why. The manager of the Houston St. Bistro is overtly rude and a liar.

My father set up a reservation for a dinner for four of us prior to a show at the Majestic Theater. He made the reservation nearly a month in advance and asked for a specific table by the window. He spoke to Razmik, the manager and verified the ta

Credit Card Fraud

I went to Houston Street Bistro last Wednesday night 4/13/11 before a Fiesta event and when we sat down the waitress immediately got rude with us... Long story short, I only tipped her $7 on the receipt b/c of her rude service but she changed it to a $9 tip and committed credit card fraud. When I finally reached someone on the phone to complain, it was the owner. Not only was he not upset or appalled like you would... view more

Nice little restaurant

Very convenient restaurant if you are downtown are going to a show at the Majestic Theater. I highly recommend reservations on nights like that. The food is usually pretty good, but last time I went there the steak was dry. This is a pricey restaurant, but for the most part is worth it.

Food was very disappointing

The trout was wafer thin and dry; the lump crab topping looked like flaked fish with no flavor. The basmati rice tasted okay but again dry. Fish & rice for $19.00, definitely not worth it. The cheesecake was so dry, it was crumbly. Forget the tough bread & unseasoned olive oil. Although the waiter was pleasant & attentive, it didn't make up for the lousy food.

Very disappointing

From the description on the web, I thought this was going to be a top-notch dining experience. Menu sounded great. Knew it was pricy, but this was a special occassion with a special person who also really appreciated good food. All the seafood was stale and tough. The Tuna was too dry to eat without being doused in some kind of sauce. Only a hint of the ingredients on the menu were actually on the plate.

Not as good as used to be.NOT worth the money.

We had a wonderful experience 4 months ago and this time was a direct opposite. Greeter/host showed us to table and held out chair for 2 seconds and then put menus on table. Left us fumbling with no place to put jackets. Asked if i was ""still working"" on salad three times in 5 minutes-like they needed the plate to wash and give to someone else. Food was mediocre--grilled salmon on tastless lentils. Creme Brulee cam... view more

Great service, Exceptional food

We've been to the Houston St. Bistro several times and have always been impressed with the service, the selection and, most importantly, thequality of the food. A casual but upscale atmosphere with friendly waitstaff that is convinent to the rest that downtown San Antonio makes this the place to go, especially when there is something going on at the Majestic or the Empire.

better than fast food...i guess

whilst many have experienced lovely service, our visit did not offer the kind southern hospitality we envisioned...the food...well it was savory and flavorful...iam sure it would have been better had we not had to wait 45 minutes for the appitizer...but i will say that it was better than bill millers.

Fantastic experience

My husband and I were traveling from Chicago to celebrate our one year anniversary, and we could not have chosen a better restaurant than Houston St. Bistro. Although it was New Year's Eve, every staff member took time to give us a very warm greeting and congratulatory remarks. Our meal was absolutely delicious, and the service was genuine and attentive. The atmosphere was romantic, and done just right. We were s... view more
