Our group had coffee crusted pork chop, shrimp and grits, eggplant parmesan, and meat loaf. All were excellent. There is something on the menu for you. We started with the steamed mussels which are legendary. Top this off with a solid wait staff and BYOB (corkage fee applies) and you have a winner.

This is a small restaurant tucked in the corner of a small shopping center.....an unlikely location for such delicious food. Every time I eat at La Vista, I swear that it's the best plate of food I've ever had. I highly recommend. And by the way, the service is wonderful.

Unexpectedly great dinner at La Vista. Wonderful food and service on a busy night. Love to corkage ! Pork, Chicken Capelini, and Tiramisu were all great.

I go here about once every 6 weeks or so and am usually satisfied with the results. It's not what it used to be a few years ago when it became somewhat famous as the "parking lot" to eat in. It was and still is BYOB but now serves wine as well. The food is usually good but sometimes fails... More

It's tucked in a shopping center, but offers great food and wine. I had their seafood risotto special and it was wonderful.

We went here for dinner on a busy Friday evening, and we were glad we had made reservations. The restaurant is in the Galleria/Tanglewood area of Houston and sits at the end of a small shopping strip mall. It has a very pleasant "clubby" feel once you are inside, and it appears that many of the diners were regulars. The... More
