Houston >Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse - Houston
“Sometimes for a nibble and drinks in the cozy bar; sometimes a full fledged dinner in the dining room.”
“The crab cakes were the best I've ever had (solid lump crab meat) and my husband's Ribeye was cooked perfectly.”
“The wine sommelier was knowledgeable, but the wine service was lacking, we received our wine after our appetizers and again with the entre.”
“The food and service were excellent.”
“However; the dining experience was excellent and the food was awesome; we went a little extravagant on the menu but expected to pay high for our 34th anniversary experience.”
“It's a nice place to go for a special occasion if you're looking for a place downtown.”
“My party was mislead and I will not return ever.”
“The staff manages to consistently deliver outstanding service with ambiance out weighing the vast majority of competitors.”
“The crabcake is one of the best I've ever had (and I'm from the Chesapeake Bay area); huge chunks of crab meat.”
V&A means Burger Friday at lunch, great local beer on tap and crab cakes. Oh and steaks, too. Fabulously decadent and luxurious, perfect for a date or your expense account.
Wonderful place to eat. This was a great place to eat. I am from out of town and staying at the Inn at the Ballpark which is right next door, so I decided to give it a try. The food and service was fantastic. It is expensive to say the least, however, it was well worth it. I had a prime ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. The side dishes are all ala carte, however, there was more than enough for two people to split one. I highly recommend Vic and Anthony's and I look forward to dining there in the future.
Worth every penny. I have worked in many restaurants, in sales and in customer service, and I am so impressed with the staff, food, and environment at Vic and Anthony's. You will get excellent service for sure. My boyfriend and I are very young and they treat us with such respect. Believe me, we have been to so many other restaurants in this price range that treated us poorly and gave us sub-par service. If you are gonna drop 200 bucks on dinner, you want to be treated a little better. It is pretty pricey, but you get what you pay for. For example, the hosts are professional, and make casual conversation when you make reservations... really making you feel special. The servers are always awesome and attentive. When we wanted suggestions about wine, the semolier (sp?) made a suggestion within our price range that was great. I love the lobster bisque, and I always get the filet and potatoes au gratin. The bread pudding is amazing. For Valentine's Day, we went to another restaurant in town just to try something new. After about 30 minutes of less than stellar treatment at Skyline, we walked out and went to our old favorite, Vic and Anthony's! We are dedicated.
Don't Valet. I had a bad experience and probably would never go again. If you valet do not leave anything valuable in your car, my digital camera was stolen by valet and when I called Vic's to make a complaint I was basically told "Oh, well". The food was not that great either, my filet mignon was dry and hard.
Incredible Steak, come hungry. The steak selection here is just great. Bone-in Ribeye is as good as they come. Filet Mignon mels in your mouth. And the steaks are huge. It's very tough to finish your steak if you get appetizers or a salad; the sides are great, especially the potatoes au-gratin and the creamed spinach. The desserts are also very good, though I only had a bite as I thought I was going to burst from so much food. I know this is where many people take out-of-towners and it is obvious why.
Great downtown spot for entertaining clients or a special dinner for couples. Creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes better than mom's.. We parked in what appeared to be a vacant lot behind the restaurant and were told by the valet from Vic & Anthoney's that it was $10.00 to self park there and $6.00 if the valet parked it there for you. We moved the car to a meter which it free after 5:30 pm. My husband and I split a 9 ounce filet mignon and the crab cake appetizer.The crab cake was great. The filet mignon was cooked to order and good but not the best I've had. The steaks come ala cart and sides are about $8.00 each. We were with a large group so we got several sides and shared them. The creamed spinach and augratin potatoes were the best I've ever had. They were extremely rich and enough for three persons to share. We also shared onion strings which were of mountainous proportions but not that good. Our group shared desserts; key lime pie and creme brule which were good but nothing special. The coffee was very good. There was a good selection of wines, however pricey. The service was excellent. The tables were set too close together, the waiter may be holding the tray above your head to bus the table next to you. The ambiance is upscale but what's unusual is the counter dining you see when you first come it, I guess you sit there if you didn't have a reservation? We spent about $100 for the two of us before tax and tip, I think that's probably the average cost per couple. It's a nice place to go for a special occasion if you're looking for a place downtown. It's directly across from "Inn on the Park" and a block from Minute Maid Park which I guess explains their weird parking arrangement.
I've been here for lunch about 6 times. Great food and service. Too bad they only do lunch on Fridays.
Not a cheap lunch, but it doesn't get any better.
Favorite Steakhouse. This is one of my favorite steakhouses in Houston. All the steaks (ribeye, porterhouse, etc.) here are good, but the filet almost melts in your mouth, it's so buttery and loaded with quality beef flavor. Even if you're not a dessert fan, you have to get a dessert here -- they are terrific for a steakhouse -- pleasing, both to eye and palate!
Mmmm crab cakes & yummy mojitos.
Steaks melt like butter in your mouth, but their other non-red meat items (specifically the fish items) are just as delicious. Wonderful wine selection. Did I mention how mouth-watering the crab cakes are?
Very accommodating and excellent service!
Prime rib eye in a prime downtown location across from Minute Maid Park puts this steakhouse in a league of its own..
Although impresario Tilman Fertitta oversees hundreds of eateries in the Landry's Restaurants empire, this is the only one that sports the family name. Well, his father's (Vic) and cousin's (Anthony) names, to be precise. With its post-modern mix of gay '90s and ultra-contemporary decor, the eatery is both posh and brash. Dining room volume is considerable, tables are very close together and service can be erratic.
Admirably brief, the menu offers a half-dozen red meat reliables including veal chop and filet mignon in addition to a couple of seafood and chicken options for good measure. Salads shine, especially an impressive blue cheese-and-pear concoction. Side dishes, which come a la carte, seem pricey and disappointing, particularly the ho-hum steak fries.
Fancy high class dining. Vic and Anthony's was delicous, but it didn't come with a cheap price. The crab cake was good, but after reading rave reviews of it I think my expectations were a little too high. I order the 9oz filet medium, but it was slightly overcooked. For it being a fancy restaurant I would expect the cook to get it perfect, but I didn't care enough to send it back. It was still tasty. Oh and I highly recommend reservations, no matter what day of the week. My friends and I made the mistake of not making reservations, thinking that a Wednesday would not be crowded, and ended up having to wait 1 hour 15 min. Luckily the Inn at the Ballpark is just next door, and we went there for drinks.
