Great date night

Dined on April 24, 2016

I don't often get a night out without my kid, so this place was a perfect date night venue. There was a very diverse crowd. Beautiful atmosphere. Great service. Very upscale, yet welcoming.

Birthday Celebration

Dined on April 16, 2016

We enjoyed our evening at TEXAS and the only thing wrong was the noise level. At times we could not hear one another across the table. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday and would have enjoyed visiting more than we did. The food was outstanding and the servers were gracious.

Once again, always the best...

Dined on February 27, 2016

There was no question about where my wife and I would celebrate our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. There was no question about who we wanted to take care of use (Troy) for this special occasion. And everything went as planned, except for a new member of the team. We got to meet Desmond. According to Troy, Desmond is a new addition to the Texas team and my wife and I were very pleased to meet him and appreciated his contribution to our celebration. I am sure he will fit in very well with the Texas team and we will look forward to seeing him again on our next visit. In closing we would like to say "Thank You" to the entire Texas staff for each of your special contributions to our visit. From the front of the front door as we entered to the back of the front door as we left everything was GREAT. But then again that is ALWAYS our experience at TEXAS.

While visiting Texas, I really wanted to find a true steak restaurant and it was so good I went back twice in the same week. Great steaks, and the bang bang shrimp was really a treat!

Dined on February 23, 2016

Best service I have had in years. I took my wife there for our anniversary. I had talked to everyone where I work about it so they were all waiting on my report. It seems that everyone has had the experience lately of splurging on an expensive restaurant only to have poor service. My experience was exemplary and I told everyone so. I know one co-worker sat down and made a reservation for his anniversary that morning. Everyone is going to try your restaurant now. Thanks

Service issues and rude bartender

Dined on February 16, 2016

We were celebrating a late valentines dinner, our reservation was for 7:30. I ordered the wine but there were some "issues" with wine service...I'll leave it at that. Manager was nice but it wasn't quite the experience we were hoping for. Food was okay, to be expected... After three courses we ordered dessert, got some free after dinner drinks but I guess we didn't GTFO fast enough because as we were walking out the bartender said "YAY!" Fairly loudly, even though he had other guests still sitting at his bar. Pretty unprofessional. We were looking for a steakhouse out in the suburbs, guess we will keep looking. And Dale, it was neither of our birthdays but thanks for the well wishes...?

We were seated as soon as we arrived. Dinner was excellent. My only issue was that when I made my reservations there was not an indication that there would be special Valentines menu. It was not bad but would have preferred to been able to choose from the menu I had looked at when I made the reservations. As a side note the individual that was providing the entertainment was excellent.

The ambiance and decor was great. Just wish the food and service was up to par, put a damper on the whole evening. When you're paying $30-$50 an entree you expect a lot more.

limited menu, inflated prices, poor service/food

Dined on February 14, 2016

I made reservations at Texas based on the website menu. Arrived at the restaurant and only a special valentines day menu was provided, at significantly inflated prices. It was the only menu we could order from. I ordered a bottle of wine with dinner. The wine didn't show up until after we had been served our meal and only after I reminded the waitress. The filet mignon was nothing special, a bit dry. I cook and serve a more flavorful filet at home. Squash and potatoes equally unimpressive. Overall a waste of money. We won't be back.

Love This Place

Dined on February 14, 2016

We consider TEXAS to be our go-to place for special occasions or just a pop-in. Mr. Wamstad is the ultimate host - always being sure he greets everyone. All of the wait staff love their job and help each other out so that the customers are the winners. I highly recommend TEXAS - they will truly make your evening special (and you don't even have to be dressed up).

Loud but accommodating

Dined on February 12, 2016

My husband and I went here to celebrate Valentines day four days early . The atmosphere was friendly, open, but also obnoxiously loud. The food was really good; my husband said it was the best steak he'd ever had in his entire life, but I don't know if it was worth the $150 bill that came with the steaks, two glasses of wine, a plate of cheese, and a slice of cake for dessert. The service was excellent, our waiter was kind and helpful without being even remotely invasive to our romantic evening; she did an excellent job of catering to our needs and making us feel comfortable with her. I wish I could remember her name. Over all, our experience was a positive one, but I think we will be avoiding this place in the future for romantic evenings ONLY because it's a little louder than we had anticipated. For group gatherings or social get togethers, though, it'd be an excellent choice!

Dined on February 5, 2016

What a great place for entertaining. Quality of food was excellent. If I had to say anything negative it would be the temperature control. Where we were sitting you could feel the cold air blowing down on you when the blower would kick on. Redirection of the airflow would be my only recommendation. Otherwise first class all the way around.
