I always see House of Wagyu every time we go to Cardinal Santos for the girls’ checkup. At the same time, I saw some friends who ate in the said restaurant and gave good reviews about it. Since it’s our anniversary and my husband and I are both into steaks, we decided to give it a try.
…. and we’re so happy that we did. I made reservations just to be sure since it’s our first time. The restaurant opens at 6:00 PM for dinner and being the excited couple that we are every time we try new restaurants, we arrived in Greenhills a bit early.
Anyway, as soon as we opened the door, the place can be intimidating. You can easily tell that the place is an expensive one. A receptionist will greet you and lead you to your table. Then a waiter will attend to your needs, take your orders and just wait until the food arrives.
So, here’s what I have to say about out dining experience in House of Wagyu.
We started off with Potato Soup. My husband and I are even discussing how it was made since it tastes like real potato but you can’t see any hints of it in the soup. Lol!
Then we ordered Mediterranean Salad. If you’re not into mayonnaise and prefer balsamic vinegar on salads, then this salad is highly recommended. It is also one of their best sellers, and it’s no wonder why.
And here comes the steak. Initially, we ordered Grade 10 Tenderloin (I didn’t even know there’s such thing!) then changed it to Ultra Premium Tenderloin then Premium Tenderloin since the Ultra one wasn’t available. It was our first time so we wanted to go for the best. Oh, and all steak orders comes with soup of the day, mashed potato and mixed vegetables. In all honesty, this is by far the best steak I’ve ever tasted. At first, we were wondering why the waiter didn’t even ask how we want our steak to be cooked. Yun pala, we will be cooking it right then and there. Good thing we didn’t ask.
The Premium Tenderloin is placed on a hot stone grill. The waiter instructed us to cut the steak in bite-size so it will be easier for the meat to get cooked. As soon as we take the first bite, hmmm, it’s so worth it. I have never eaten a steak that soft, juicy and very easy to chew. No exaggeration but as if you’re eating fish or tuna and just melts in your mouth. It turns out that stories about wagyu beef and how soft and chewy it is are true. And there is no need for gravy since the wagyu steak itself tastes really good. I tried dipping the steak on the gravy but it just messes up the flavor. If you plan to try out their steak, I suggest you eat it as it is.
According to my husband, House of Wagyu is a perfect place for date night. From the time you opened the door, the chairs, lights and overall ambiance, you can’t help but fall in love with the place. The lighting is even perfect if you want to have some quality, intimate moments with your man.
I always commend service-centered businesses with respectful and professional staff. Thankfully, House of Wagyu did not fail on this one. From the time we opened the door until we left, we were greeted by their cheerful staff and easily attending to our needs. Two thumbs up.
And here comes the tricky part. You always hear people say all good things come with a price and House of Wagyu is a living proof of that.
The price of their food is really something, which is why I personally recommend this resto only on special occasions. But of course, you are offered the best wagyu steak you will ever taste so expect a higher price. Appetizers range from P245.00 – P400.00 while the salads are below p300 mark, unless you ordered for the Foie Grass salad.
As for the steaks, the price depends on the grade, cut and how big it is. Price starts at P1,000 mark and can go as high as P5,000 ++. Really pricey. Oh, prices are VAT inclusive plus service charge. There are cheaper steaks on the menu. Its just that my husband wanted to try the best so we opted for the premium one 🙂
Overall, if you are looking for the ultimate fine dining experience or a place to celebrate your anniversary or simply to have a quiet time with your man over sumptuous dinner, then I highly recommend House of Wagyu. Their wagyu steak is really to die for. If you’re wondering if I’m going back. Definitely! There are still a lot of mouthwatering dishes I want to try, although it may take a while because of the price.
If you’re planning to give this a try, I suggest you check the prices first to see if it is within budget.
House of Wagyu is located at McKinley Arcade, 105 Club Filipino Ave. cor. Ortigas, Greenhills, San Juan. For reservations, you can call at 725-2811. In case of parking spaces, you can park at Parking 3 (along the LSGH side) of the Greenhills Shopping Center.
Note: House of Wagyu and Melo’s are related, so you can also try their wagyu steak there. I’m just not sure if the presentation is the same.

I know this resto! My husband’s isn’t a steak lover so we never really bothered trying. I guess because when we go to my parents’ house we always eat steak (my Dad’s specialty) so steak for me is hard to beat so we just stopped trying.
But I’m glad I read a review on this resto, I have been curious for years 🙂
You should try it 🙂 Super sarap talaga and no exaggeration, the steak simply melts in your mouth 🙂 They have a branch in Podium too, if I’m not mistaken 🙂
Waaah 5k! That is pricey! XD
Pricey talaga! My husband and I are joking na that dinner is good hanggang Valentine’s :)) But it’s really yummy. As in I have nothing but good praises for their food 🙂
Agree with your husband, the place has a nice ambience good for a couple’s date night–a bit romantic actually
Perfect for date nights and proposals too :))
Super expensive… I think everytime I’ll bite through the steak, I’ll have the price in mind and how many less fortunate, I bite will be able to feed!
They have cheaper steaks too, though a bit expensive than ordinary ones since it is wagyu beef 🙂 We just opted for the premium one since its our first time. Anyway, there’s a special occasion to celebrate 🙂
Oh, Same owner pala as Melo’s. I was disappointed with Melo’s ; ( Happy anniversary!
Why mommy? Actually nagulat din ako na sister-restaurants sila 🙂 Kay House of Wagyu daw kumukuha si Melo’s ng wagyu beef lang naman 🙂
Yummy but pricey! Natatakam ako and it’s late na for me to eat haha. Indulging occasionally is nothing to feel guilty about especially since you and your husband bonded pa over it. 🙂
True, if you do this once in a while, I think there’s nothing wrong with it. Ang joke nga namin, this dinner covers pati valentine’s na :))
Happy anniversary! Yeah, it really is pricey but I think it’s worth it.
Thank you! 🙂 Worth it naman 🙂 But its a place we cant go to every month for date nights :))
We love steak too! We’ve been having steak for the past two days! Ako steak lang no rice. Ok rin, but I’d love to have the nice premium ones too. If you don’t mind me asking, how much was the whole dinner? We want to try House of Wagyu, but the place looks intimidating that I’m afraid the prices will be too! We’ve tried Melo’s before, the steak was okay (maybe it wasn’t their premium one — it was during a wedding), but my In-Law’s didn’t enjoy theirs when they went to dinner there.
Hi mommy 🙂 It was around P8,000, including service charge and VAT. But the steak is good for sharing na since generous sila sa serving 🙂 You can also try their Grade 8 or Grade 10 tenderloin since malambot din naman, well at least according to reviews 🙂 I recommend it for date nights but like what I’ve said, make sure you have a budget for that since it can be pricey 🙂
Wow really pricey but looks yunmy. Heard great feedback about the place too. Mukha ngang masarap talaga
Masarap sya and worth it 🙂
Sounds a bit too expensive for my blood but maybe worth a try at least once. The steak does look good!
Yes, it really tastes good. best steak so far 🙂
House of Wagyu is a bit pricey but I hear some of my friedns rave about how good their steaks are! I will set aside so we can try it out.
Iba talaga siya. Their wagyu beef is really something. Super lambot 🙂
