V&A is a fine steak house. Personally I prefer Fogo de Chao or Tradicao Brazilian Steak House, because you can eat all the steak you want in both of them. The ambiance is the same, the price is more competitive, the service is the same or better, in other words, why not go the Brazilian way? I would rate Fogo a 10 out of 10 and newcomer Tradicao a 9.85. If going to an all you can eat upscale buffet is not your thing, you are not concerned with price, I think that Pappas Brothers on Westheimer is by far the best steak house in Houston.
Best Steakhouse - 2010
Vic & Anthony's
With a space that epitomizes Texas-size luxury and a Sinatra soundtrack to boot, Vic & Anthony's would be easy to write off as nothing more than a downtown power lunch/expense account destination. But here's the thing: The steaks are really, really good. Like the 22-ounce bone-in rib eye, which you can get with a side of bone marrow bordelaise. Or the obscenely tender filet, in a nine- or 12-ounce portion, charred perfectly and sitting atop some very fine mashed potatoes. Toss in the city's best crab cake, knowledgeable wait staff and a dizzyingly long wine list and you've got yourself a dinner that's well worth the splurge.
