Américas River Oaks
America's AmazesAs always, my dining experience at America's (River Oaks) was incredible. Fabulous atmosphere, service and food has me returning to dine there several times a month.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchTook my wife for the Mother's Day brunch buffet. It was a phenomenal experience. The staff was unbelievable and really made the meal an experience. At no time was my mimosa glass ever close to empty. Every time it got down to half full, it was refilled. I picked up the bottle of water to refill my water glass and before I could even tilt it, our waiter was there to take the bottle from me and fill my glass up. I wish I could remember the names of the staff that waited on us, because they are the reason that I will return. The food was delicious as well, but the waiters were the stars of the show that day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLost count of number of visitsLost count of number of visits and each equals the one before .. never a disappointment5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday Brunch!Had Mother's Day brunch and the food was fantastic! Always liked Americas since they serve food I can't cook at home. Sunday brunch with paella, empanadas, lechon, tenderloin was fantastic. Pasta and crepe station suited my young daughter well too. Thought it was just a bit pricey for $49 - which excludes drinks. Service is really good. Overall a very pleasant experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysGreat as always.

The ceviche and chimichurri sauce are outstanding enough to require a visit.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReviewFirst time we were disappointed in the churrosco steak.

Thanks!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDining GemRecently I had the pleasure of dining at your establishment for both business and pleasure. Both experiences were fantastic. I found the acoustics great for large business gatherings. I was amazed that you could actually have a normal table conversation without having to yell, like at most restaurants in the area. Your employees were the best. They were not only professional, but also very informative and pleasant. When selecting a location for my next business gathering or a relaxing dinner with friends, America’s will be at the top of my list. Thank you for the great experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceGreat food, great service but very pricey for brunch!

We had 7:45 reservations but they were not ready to serve us so we grabbed a drink at the bar. The bar tender was very friendly. When we sat down we ordered right away. The meal took a lot time to come out, and we were told by the manager that they had a wedding in their private room that was holding back the kitchen. He brought over a round of drinks on the house and desert. I thought this exemplified how a restaurant should handle a situation like that. We were very pleased with the food and service and will be coming back soon!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was an amazing experienceIt was an amazing experience and I plan on returning!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently superior- LOVE IT!Americas River Oaks has an incredible ambience and cuisine!

Food quality was terrific and the variety on the menu could please any pallette.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place is convenientlyThe place is conveniently located in the heart of famous River Oak area in Houston and easily accessible. Parking including the garage is plenty. Recpetionist and waiters are well trained and appear to be very professional and courteous. Food wise is of high quality, wine (by glass) and drinks are bit expensive that may prevent customers to order. It will be nice to serve fresh baked bread (butter) if the restaurant can.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and food.Excellent service and food.

The variety, quality and quantity of the food was excellent and the wait staff was unparalleled. This restaurant has the best wait staff I have seen in years, extremely attentive and courteous. We never had to ask for anything, from water to clean silverware after we finished a plate and went for more delicious food to the bottomless Mimosa he manage to keep us well attended. The restaurant is well located and it has beautiful interiors with a modern and tropical decor dedicated to a Latin American landscape. Kudos to Cordura Group for a well run and delish restaurant!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & atmosphere. OurGreat food & atmosphere.

The outdoor area was pretty nice. The food was excellent but we did have a problem with service initially. We sat at our table for 10 minutes and did not get service until I went to the hostess stand and let them know of the issue. However, one of the floor managers did take over from there and ensured our experience was great from that point on. It would have been nice for them to comp a drink or dessert considering the frustration but we still enjoyed the food and nice outdoor dining.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Food, service, and decorThe food was awesome!

Our fish and beef were prepared to perfection. The décor is far more tactile than the late great Post Oak location. After a few visits to this location I have determined that my only complaint is the chairs (non-booth seating)are very uncomfortable.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply one of the best diningSimply one of the best dining experiences you will find in Houston Texas.
