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.

The food was a delight. The salad was delicious. The entree was plentiful and was enough to be shared by two. The waiter and manager was very nice and respectful. I will put this restaurant on my do list when I return to SA.
