Diner Reviews
  • "Have eaten here on many occasions and find the food very good and the atmosphere lovely. Will return."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "The food is really good here, glad I discovered it because of restaurant week."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The restaurant seems to be past its prime. Our waiter was excellent, but the food was below average. The main course came out too soon and was taken back. We believe it might have been placed under heat lamps because by the time we got it, it seemed dried out. The meal was not impressive at all. We did restaurant week and the four courses were below average in taste."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Great stuffed raviolis, great pork chop. WOW on the crème brulee. A little noisy at our 1st table so they accommodated us by moving us."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We went to take advantage of the HRW menu, and they offered a 4-course menu. Three of the courses were among the best dishes Id ever had at a restaurant, but one was only so-so. The salad, the veal ravioli appetizer, and the creme brulee were absolutely excellent; the main course, unfortunately, was only average. Each member of my party ordered a different selection for each course, and surprisingly we all felt the same -- our non-main courses were great, but none of us were excited about our main. Staff was attentive, and the ambience was nice."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We heard good things about Arturo's and were very pleased with our dinner. Hubby ordered off the menu and I had the HRW menu. The food was of good quality, fresh and well prepared. They have an excellent menu. Our waiter was helpful in choosing a good wine. The room is beautiful and so were the people around us. It is busy, so reservations are a good idea. We made one on the way out."

  • "We went here for restaurant week and it was pretty great. Excellent service. Great food. Would definitely recommend."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Arturo's in the Uptown Galleria area of Houston. The restaurant itself is very beautiful and the greet staff was very nice. However, once we were seated for about 20 minutes, a couple of wait staff approached our table to tell us that our wait staff will be coming. Unfortunately throughout the night, we have to request several times for different things - menus, bread, asking for simply for fresh ground pepper ... It was almost like our wait staff was in training. Training anyone is fine because we all have to learn, however it would have been noce if the restaurant would have informed us that the wait staff was training. Perhaps it could have been a busy night, but the service definately affected my review."

  • "The place was packed, as usual, and we had to wait a bit for our table, but everyone was nice and we didn't mind having a drink at the bar. At the table service was good and the food was delicious. I had a great steak and my girl had a big soup dish that was really good. Another good thing is that the noise level wasn't too high. I highly recommend Arturo's."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "The restaurant was nice. The food was good. The entire family enjoyed what they ordered."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Went for restaurant week brunch menu. The crab and shrimp omelet, filled with spinach as well, is fluffy and soft and delicious. Best restaurant week value I have been to so far! Thank you Arturo's for supporting a good cause. I will definitely be back."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "My wife and I had never been here before. We did try the HRW menu for our visit. My wife ordered the Tuna and was impressed on how it was done right. My motto "happy wife, happy life". This passed her requirements so we will return."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu is a real treat - excellent selection and delicious."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We go to Arturo's periodically, but always during Houston Restaurant Weeks. Unlike some participants, Arturo's includes a number of their higher priced items on the Restaurant Week menu and it is 4 courses instead of three. So it's a great value and the food is excellent. Our service has always been good and they don't push the more expensive wines. Will probably go at least once more this month."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We chose Arturo's for an important dinner because the acoustics let us converse without having to shout. They were busy, but the dinner went perfectly. The food was outstanding (Sea Bass!) and the waiter was efficient and personable without intruding on our meeting. Arturo's gets it right again. Our Favorite in Houston."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Thanks to Houston Restaurant Week I uncovered this hidden gem. There are not enough restaurants with outdoor seating in Houston. The green space next to the patio is beautiful. It was also very comfortable sitting under the fans even at noon in August! The food was superb which will keep us coming back."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We have had two dinners and one HRW brunch and very pleased with all. Branzino at dinner and Pancake Lasagna for brunch. Excellent! They had a good crowd each time but we could still easily carry on conversation. Thank you! Returning soon."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We enjoyed Houston Restaurant Week Brunch. Every course was delicious. Service was attentive"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We had such a lovely brunch. Quality ingredients, well prepared. We particularly liked the smoked salmon with poached egg on wheat pancakes."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Caught brunch here for restaurant week. The hash browns were dry and nearly burnt ...the bread was dry... sad omelet... definitely did not live up to the lowered price tag. It was a sad experience for a restaurant week first timer."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We came here for Restaurant Weeks with some friends and it was so delicious! I will definitely come back!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Went to Arturo's for Restaurant Week's Lunch and it was such a pleasure. The entire experience was first-rate from food to service. I used to eat here on a regular basis and will be doing so again soon. The veal ravioli was a great start, followed by grilled tuna--prepared just right with fresh veggies on the side. Can't wait to return"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "If you haven't been to Arturo's in a while, you'll be surprised on your next visit. The service we superior and the menu has been updated with several new tasty entrees. This is a favorite of mine for business lunches and the Friday I was there it was completely full so I would recommend a reservation though the patio was completely open. In cooler weather I'm sure the patio will be the same."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Arturo's never fails to please me. From the food, to the service, to their accomodating nature, it is a consistently pleasing experience."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "My son recommended Arturo's and my husband and I were very pleased with our experience. First, it is not overly loud, which we really appreciate. Then the food was delicious and the server, hostess and manager were friendly and helpful. We shall return and soon."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I've been going to Arturo's for a few years. It is an excellent restaurant"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Whether dinner au deaux or lunch with a group the service is impeccable, the food is fresh. We enjoyed a business lunch for four and the waiters were patient and courteous. The fresh fish was delicious! The lighting is soothing - not too bright. Enjoyed the 2 hour lunch!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We went for a work luncheon. The food and service were really great. The waiters were good. Everyone enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We have become regulars here and are rarely disappointed. Waiters are good as is the wine list and ambiance. The food is what makes Arturo's so good. A big entree bowl of avocado and spinach soup is perfect and so tasty. The fish filleted as you watch is spectacular. And though the place is busy, you can hear yourself talk. A great place."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We had a lovely brunch at Arturo's. Our waiter was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Food was excellent! Brunch is a relatively new offering at Arturo's and as a result it was far from crowded. This was in some ways a nice thing but I would love to see more people discover this place for brunch!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I have eaten at Arturo's twice this week because it is soooo delish! Yummy food, good atmosphere, and great service. GO!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "My first review after many times dining here. Though Italian, the food is varied and consistently very good. I've tried a lot of the menu and any of the seafood dishes are outstanding. Staff is pleasant and professional and Lupe is a great bartender. The owner is always there and keeping an eye on things. This is how a restaurant should be run. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Waiter was excellent in allowing business conversations to go on without interrupting. Highly recommend Rick Burnett Burnett Staffing Specialists"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Eight of us dined and our dinner was just perfect and we had the best time catching up with each other. The waiter was helpful and the food was delicious. We agreed that the Branzino sea bass was the best. All tables were taken, but we could still talk with ease. A great restaurant!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Had dinner her the other night the service & food where very good. We will return for sure."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Food was outstanding. Service was excellent. Have been to Arturo's several times and it seems to have moved from good to very good to excellent. Do not know if they have a new chef, however it is excellent"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We regularly host business dinners and Arturo's is our favorite venue. No matter how good the food is somewhere, if you can't hear the client because of noise level, what's the point? Arturo's has excellent acoustics. The food and service are among the best in town and the location is great. We start talking about other places, but more often than not end up at Arturo's. And that's a good thing."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "was perfect. We so appreciate a restaurant where you can hear yourself talk. And the food was delicious, the service friendly and attentive. It's a wonderful restaurant."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We have had dinner here 5 times over the last 2 weeks and love it. The pastas are perfectly al dente and delicious. The sausage pasta is the best so far. The salmon is the best we have ever had. The best of the best is the seabass they filet as you watch. Service is very good. It is a beautiful restaurant and don't miss the patio. Very easy to talk even when the house is full."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We had heard about Arturo's for some time and were very, very pleased with our dinner. It was one of the most pleasant times we've had in a restaurant and we eat out a lot. Service was friendly, the owner came by for a chat, the food was really good and the wine list as well. We are going to try brunch this Sunday. We recommend Arturo's."
