Churrascos - River Oaks
Almost 5 StarsMother's Day brunch outing. Food was very good. Limited selection of food actually is a plus because all items were very good. I especially loved the french toast and want to know the recipe! Service was excellent despite the fact that staff seemed a bit overwhelmed because of people that showed up without reservations.
Didn't give five stars because it took more than acceptable time to replace food that ran out on the buffet line. They ran out of beef tenderloin, and it took about 30 minutes to replenish. They ran out of rice and it also took 30 minutes to replenish. They kept running out of cups for the lobster bisque.
It was a nice outing overall. Will return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently great food and serviceDined here with a party of 4 for Mothers Day. Our server Pedro was awesome! So friendly, yet professional and efficient. His flaming dessert for the Mother was very nice. The sea bass special was perfectly prepared and great tasting and the portion very large. The Churrasco steaks we had and the plantain crusted shrimp were also prepared as ordered and were seasoned nicely and arrived hot from the grill. Thank you for another great dinner service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious everythingEverything we had from the plantain chips to the steak and lobster were delicious. There isn't one thing that we tried that I didn't absolutely love. Service was prompt and very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning to try the rest of the menu.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there to celebrate,We went there to celebrate, and we had a wonderful dinner.

It's my girlfriend favorite restaurant so we'll be back quite often.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointedVisit was for the River Oaks location. The restaurant is a nice, quite place to enjoy dinner with a group of friends and family, or for a romantic evening out. I have been to this location several times and I have never gone away disappointed with the food or the service. The Pollo Encamisado is fantastic. Neither my wife or I drink, so I cannot comment on the wine.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a very delicious lunchEnjoyed a very delicious lunch while still being reasonable in price.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth the food and serviceBoth the food and service are outstanding. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we are fortunate to have the privilege of dining all over the world. If we only were able to dine at one restaurant in Houston Churrascos, especially for their monthly wine dinner, would be the one. The service is personable and knowledgeable. We leave happy and find ourselves talking about the delightful experience for days afterwards. If you love food this is the place to try, it will become a favorite.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meat dishes were preparedThe meat dishes were prepared perfectly! The pairing with the wines was excellent too.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter brunch was wellThe Easter brunch was well worth it. Delicious food, terrific service. We love the place and will be back again and again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMChurrascoExcellent food and service. Never disappointed after a visit to this location.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly dining is quiet, deliciousWe ate early and really enjoyed the slow pace (this is what we wanted) and the delicious food (steaks for the girls, fish for the boys). We ate all our vegetables, too, except for a couple of pieces. Everything was very nicely prepared and tasty. Easy to find a great wine, even by the glass.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Fish and Seafood!!This is a very cozy place, for lunch or dinner with the family, quiet. Are characterized by a excellent attention and innovative presentations of their dishes. The food was very tasty, in special we can recommend the seafood and fish. We also tried their famous Churrasco, but that was a little disappointing, in terms of quality and preparation, but everything else, appetizers, main dishes (fish or seafood) and desserts were good. The coffee was delicious, say that they bring to Nicaragua the herbal tea also very rich.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableWas looking for some where special for our anniversary. My wife loved it.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSouth American GemChurrascoes certainly lived up to it's Zagat guide rating! The food was delicious, (we came in Sunday for brunch) the wait staff was friendly and attentive, and the ambiance and decor was certainly upscale. These combinations made the visit for three definitely worth the price. I would RSVP here again!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite restaurant.This is my favorite restaurant. It is my fall back for special occasions. I love the food. I think it is getting a bit to expensive for regular weekly dinning. If prices were 20% lower we would probably week every 1-2 weeks!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Steaks are High on my ListIf you are looking for an outstanding steak, this is the place for you! I'm not sure I ever order anything else but steak because they know how to cook them the way you order them. Always tender, always juicy, and always perfectly the way I want it! It is a great place to go if you want to have an intimate evening and be able to talk and hear each other above the din. If it's medical advice you seek, this seems to be a big hangout for the medical community. The food must be healthy! The staff is always first rate and our waiter did not disappoint.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
