Outstanding food...great wait staff. Fantastic location by Majestic Theater. Concert or play goers have a great location either before or after an event at The Majuestic Theater. Great desserts and coffee after dinner.

Houston Street Bistro offers an interesting variety of entrees, such as Chicken Marsala and fresh salmon all delicious and appetizingly presented. Our service was nicely provided in a gracious and professional manner. Lastly, the dessert selection was varied and tasty, complemented with a nice cappuccino.
