Diner Reviews
  • "I took my nephew for dinner. It was his first time to dine @ Churrascos River Oaks. He loved the food and service and wants to go dine there again. He thought it would be a great restaurant to take a date in the future."

  • "We have always enjoyed dining at Churrasco's. The empanadas were delicious as usual, and we also tried -and enjoyed- the calamari appetizer. The steak and pork entrees were flavorful and well-prepared. For dessert, we got the flan and tres leches cake. Both were great."

  • "This establishment offers a variety of Latin foods. The service was excellent as well as the food. The atmosphere included soft lighting and low jazz music."

  • "Two friends and I had lunch at Churrascos during Houston Restaurant Weeks (August 2014). We made reservations, but they didn't seem necessary. Each of us order something different--except the first course--the Churarascos signature salad, which was highly appreciated by all of us. I had the grilled steak with bearnaise sauce and mushrooms. The steak was very tasty, perfectly cooked (medium), tender, and served with an ample portion to take a little home. One friend had chicken and the other had the shrimp and filet brochette. Everyone was very happy. I have tried four new restaurants during HRW, and Churrascos was clearly the best!"

  • "Service is exceptional, fried plantains are addictive, the empanadas are fantastic, Sopa Cubana exceptional, Pollo Encamisado to die for, Cerdo Marinero 'juicy'!, and the Churrasco steak is one of a kind! Don't forget to order a Tres Leches :) Love the place"

  • "Great restaurant from food to service! Thinking back, they were busy so the manager stepped in when our waitress was busy so weren't waiting for anything. The food was fabulous as usual. Had leftovers of the Churrasco steak and even that was mouthwatering good. The Tres Leches is my all time favorite desert. Haven't found any other restaurant that can make it better."

  • "The food is good- don't get me wrong. But the al acart thing at dinner makes this a more pricey dinner than what it's worth."

  • "Our waiter, Ricardo, made our evening an A plus experience. When we were first greeted by the hostess, and told her we had an 8:30 reservation, she sat us at a small table for 2 in the middle of a high traffic area. When our waiter saw my expression, he gathered our menus without asking and said, "follow me..I have a better spot in the back for you". From then on he was very attentive, refilling our wine glasses, explaining the menu options, describing the cultural vegetables, etc. He agreed to take a nice anniversary picture, and brought us complimentary champagne and tres leche, with flaming brandy. We will be back for many other celebrations, and recommend this restaurant to our friends. kingwood, tx."

  • "We visited for restaurant week in Houston and were not disappointed. Couldn't have been more pleased with our meals, the service was exceptional and everything was perfect. They even had one of my favorite wines on a nice special. Go for the special Churrascos steak!"

  • "A new brunch fave for sure! Best "bottomless" deal in the city and what a buffet spread! Our group of five didn't want to leave. Had they turned on those A/C coolers on the patio, we might still be there! ;)"

  • "We celebrated our wedding anniverary at Churrascos because of the outstanding service and simply great food. This was our first time at the Sunday brunch, but it won't be our last. We have previously dined at Churrascos and knew that it would once again be a great experience. We highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "As always, Churrascos was the best in food, drinks, service and ambience, even if a little noisier and slower than usual (probably due to the crowds of Restaurant Weeks). Special kudos for Copacabana ceviche and Churrasco steak."

  • "My husband and I went for the Houston Food Bank dinner special. The food and service were not compromised at all by the special pricing. Food was still very good and even though they were quite busy on Saturday night, several times a manager came by our table to make sure we were being taken care of. Always enjoy our dinners here!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Even though the waiter was very good and friendly, when were looking at what to order, we all felt rush - like he wasn't patient enough for us to even finish saying what we were going to order."

  • "I visited this restaurant with a friend. We both ordered the lunch special (instead of from Houston Restuarant Week) We had an appetizer, entree plus dessert for only $19. The plantain chips with the dipping sauce is so good. We both ordered the Churrascos salad, it is very good. I had the fish, very tender and juicy. I took the flan home because I was so full. Service was impeccable, the manager came around to check on the table as well. Great experience. (Saturday lunch around 1pm)"

  • "Our party of four enjoyed the selections for HRW. The portions were incredibly generous, the servings wonderfully fresh, and the surprises many. Who would have thought we would have also been treated to a wonderful shareable side dish of chorizo rice, plaintains, and fried yuca on top of our already sizeable entrees! Our waiter Carlos provided impeccable service and continued to refill water glasses even when we overstayed our stay."

  • "Great service. Very attentive without being intrusive. Outstanding food - everything was delicious...sauces were light & complimented the dishes. Lots of ambiance Will return & definitely recommend your restaurant to friends & business associates. in the future."

  • "Had a very good table on a busy Saturday night during Restaurant Weeks. We could not remember ever being in a louder restaurant - many large parties, lots of kids, etc. Not so bad as to spoil the meal, but definitely not a place for people that like their dinner to be surrounded by a serene atmosphere. Food was generally good; not off-the-charts but enjoyable for the HRW menu. Service was attentive (even if you couldn't hear anything he said...). Excellent HRW desert choices in Tres Leches and Coconut Ice Cream."

  • "We took some out of town guests for dinner and it was perfect. There was a good variety to choose from and the service was exceptional. One of our friends has a lot of food allergies and even she was able to find items that worked for her. It is nice to have dinner where you do not have to shout so the person across from you can hear you and you also do not have to listen to conversations from other tables."

  • "Besides the food being top quality with incredible flavors and beautifully presented (my compliments to the chef and their kitchen) the entire wait staff was extremely courteous, attentive, entertaining, accommodating to my entire party with their different dietary needs and made my birthday one that I will cherish!"

  • "So enjoyed the exceptional attention that my friend and I received from the moment we walked in the door to when we left. The hostess, floor managers and waitstaff were all very attentive without being coying. The ambiance is comfortably upscale without being pretentious. The food was truly delicious and I must say that the tres leche cake was the best I ever had! Although the restaurant was a bit noisy, it actually made it possible to have a private conversation and now worry about being overheard or self-conscious about laughing aloud. I look forward to my next visit."

  • "Came here during HRW and it was amazing! Had come before with my in-laws so I wasn't expecting them to give you the regular menu items at such a great deal. Completely worth it. Server was also very friendly."

  • "We had a work lunch with 6 guests on a Friday afternoon, the service for our table was outstanding, we felt so special when the server brought us out complimentary beef empanadas (delicious) for each of us. The manager came by and checked on us and even dropped off some coupons at the end of our meal. The food was delicious, we all ordered from the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu, and it was so fresh, we were all happy-happy. We each took half of our lunch home as leftovers as the portion sizes are huge, it was so delicious we didn't mind taking it home for dinner!"

  • "I had to order the same thing 3 times and they had 2 waiters per table which I always find is a terrible idea when restaurants do this since neither knows what the other is doing. Overall, it was extremely expensive and the service was horrible"

  • "I celebrated my 30th here with a small party of 8. I was excited since I had read so many glowing reviews. We waited a little past our reservation time, but considering it was a weekend night it wasn't a deal breaker.The appetizers they offered-the crispy plantains, were delicious, and the food was of a higher than average quality, although not extraordinary. My friends ordered a variety of food, and they liked one of the specials they offered as well as the plantain encrusted chicken. The only regrettable thing was that I, along with with 3 of my friends ended up with the worst heartburn the next day.I am not sure if it was due to the acidity of some of the creams/sauces that came with our food.Not sure what to do with balance on gf card."

  • "I usually really like Churrasco's, but this was the first time I've been to their brunch. I wasn't particularly impressed. Boiled shrimp was overcooked, waffles and pancakes were in a steamer (which is really bad for waffles as they're meant to be crisp), beef was a bit dry, and the plaintains were just a tad undercooked. And although they had I five offerings for dessert, I only tried two, the flan and some kind of filled chocolate cake. The flan was too thick and not good at all, but the chocolate cake thing was delicious. The other desserts were tres leches, rice pudding, and bread pudding. None of which I like any day of the week so I didn't bother. Shame because I have a real sweet tooth."
