    The restaurant was quiet for a midafternoon brunch before an Aggie football game, but food and service were impeccable! We had a birthday to celebrate and ordered many different items to sample since it was our first time here. The seafood crepes were delicious, the salmon cooked perfectly (both, the raspberry glazed and a special with seafood topping), the chicken and brie sandwich outstanding and the stuffed mushroom starter yummy! Really nice, colorful sides of vegetables and potatoes filled our plates and were quite generous portions! We only regret we were too full to try more than one dessert-the key lime tart with mango puree was excellent, though! Prices were reasonable for this quality of food.

    We went to Cristopher's to celebrate a birthday. I chose Christopher's because my past experiences have been outstanding and because my friend had never been there. In a nut shell I didn't feel that the service and food preparation held up to my expectations nor past experiences. My friend ordered the blue filet to be prepared medium. It was in fact quite rare in the center and to one side. We ordered cappuccinos with her birthday dessert. The dessert was delivered well ahead of our cappuccinos and no sweetener was offered nor delivered with our coffee drinks. I had to wait for the attention of a table attendant to request sweetener.

  • Derby Salad for Lunch
    christophersdiner
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    I had the derby salad for lunch. The bacon had a plastic-like texture and appearance and not much taste. There was insufficient dressing for the size of salad, but worst of all was the fact that there was too much blue cheese on the salad. It overwhelmed all of the other flavors in the dish. Christopher's is always a nice place for a meal, but the rooms we were in had so much echo and background noise it was hard to have quiet conversation with the people sitting next to me. Some acoustic dampening would be a worthwhile investment.

    The food was great as always. However, the table we were seated at was incredibly loud. We couldn't hear our server or each other. We could hear the conversations of everyone around us. Which prompted us the leave without dessert.

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    Three of us decided last minute to go to Christopher's for a late, 1:15, lunch. It was not busy so the noise level was low at this time. Lunch was delicious. We all ordered different dishes. One was a penne pasta with steak, one a chicken sandwich with an amazing French fried salad, and the other was the tomato basil soup and house field green salad. The only complaints: it was FREEZING in there, even after asking them to adjust the thermostat. I understand the staff might be warm because they are moving around a lot, but for the guest sitting in there, warm it up please. And secondly, too much dressing applied to the salads making them soggy and a bit too much to want to finish the salad. Overall Great place that we will return to!

    My wife ordered the filet cooked rare that comes on a bed of creamed spinach - it was outstanding, and the meat was perfectly cooked. I ordered the snapper that came with lump crab and with a cream sauce, and it was very, very good. My order also had steamed vegetables and mashed sweet potatoes - they were a good compliment to the snapper. For dessert we ordered a chocolate truffle cake that was very tasty. A very good restaurant - the ambiance was slightly lacking, mainly due to the quantity of patrons they choose to pack into the space that they have. The food was pricey, but worth it, in my opinion. Total bill (without tip) came to just at $100.

    We enjoyed the most wonderful graduation dinner for 6 of us! We really appreciated our server (Lauren) and the patient staff for our 8 pm reservation. Several in our party were 1/2 hour late, but the staff never made us feel rushed or concerned about the tardiness. Everything we ordered was amazing, and Lauren did a fantastic job of recommending appetizers (that brie is to die for!) and main courses. Simply a lovely evening with good wine, exceptional food and a genuinely nice and professional server. We will be back!

    Our food was good, our waiter was well trained, maybe a little rehearsed and TOO attentive, but he did his job well. We were first going to be seated in the back of a dark room right next to the only other people in the room-I think there was bench seating that connected the tables and we asked for a different table. Bee then were seated next to window, with natural light in another room, which was much better

    My husband and I enjoy nice food and entertaining our pallets. When it came time for our anniversary celebration there was no question where we wanted to celebrate it. Christopher's has exceptional cuisine, impeccable waiters, and an elegant ambiance. FYI: The dinner wine list favors those who purchase by the bottle--average one single-serve glass available per wine varietal-- but they do have a variety of cocktails. Price per person is about $50 for dinner and $25 for brunch.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was perfect and the server did a great job of helping us along the way and being invisible at other times. Thanks Christopher!!

    The venue itself is inviting and intimate. We were ready for a great experience after reading the description of the chef's and staff's credits. We have dined at many of the highest rated restaurants in the US and Europe so have much a discerning opinion. Pretty disappointing. The food was not very creative in our view and the preparation was off. My boar chop was over cooked and somewhat tasteless and the Italian duck sausage was bland. The presentation was good but food quality was very average to below average. My wife had fish which was clearly not fresh and overcooked. My son's and his girlfriend's meals were good. It seemed very hit or miss and very expensive. Can't see coming back.

    My wife and I made reservations for our 24th anniversary. The restaurant was busy, but not crowded. New Orleans Jazz, including Louis Armstrong, was playing, although with the quiet atmosphere, some of the songs were jarringly loud. Service was attentive and prompt. My entrée was Huevos Enchiladas. Each bite of the stacked enchiladas and fried eggs was subtly different and unique as the individual ingredients had kept their own flavors instead of being a bland uniform mix. My wife got the Mazatlan Chicken with avocado salsa, the salsa was sweet and tangy. For dessert we had the Berries Napoleon, which was brought out on a plate that had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. This was a special touch to end a very special brunch.

    We enjoyed brunch at Christopher's. As always, it was very noisy and other guests dressed as if they were dining at a fast food restaurant. I understand the need to be flexible about a dress code because we don't want to be insulting however those who do actually dress the part are also at risk of being offended.

    I was hit in the back by a door while seated. It took the staff too long to figure this out. Food and wine were excellent. The waiter was over-attentive to the point of being rehearsed. Letting people enjoy their evening with their companions without having to validate how well everything is going every 4 minutes. This will not stop me from coming back.
