Diner Reviews
  • "Claudio's is terrific for yummy Italian food. Great live music from Crista and Abel; outstanding service, and of course, great Italian! Lucky to have caught a table for my large party of 7."

  • "Large group went to hear the band. Which was awesome but service was awful. Food was less than expected. Changed what you ordered without telling you first. First and last time going!!"

  • "We had a 7:15 res, we were sat immediately, table was on bar side-raised area. It was near a big party. First thought, uh oh, but we decided to stay there. The lighting was very dim and the menu was a difficult to read easily w/o moving it around. Our waitress was very polite but her overall service was slow. We ordered within next 5 minutes-salads and entrees. Salads came quickly so that was a plus because we both were starving. The food runner got our table and the big one mixed up and tried to sit our salads down there first, then our entrees took 45min to come. That is with no exaggeration. The food was great, the wait for it was not. We will still return there but hopefully the time quality will be better!"

  • "Friend recommended for my birthday celebration. Read reviews at both ends of the spectrum. Few choices in our area for piano bars so we made reservation. Dinner for 8, all enjoy good wines. The cool drink feature at the bar was cool. Good gimlet. Requested a table in the piano bar area and they accommodated us with no issues. Wine menu has several 'crowd pleasers'. Caymus 40 year anniversary cab was excellent. Dinner was very good. Sirloin special with medallions ordered medium rare and it was spot on. Veal and Chicken piccata very good. Ran out of homemade ravioli as on the menu and waiter would not substitute another pasta. strange. Performers were excellent & there was a LOT of dancing from a lot of people. Have a new spot."

  • "We dined here the week before to check it out before bringing a group and had some stellar pasta the week before. We were not disappointed at this visit with a larger party. Our server was cheerful and attentive. I had a pork chop that was absolutely delicious. Everyone else enjoyed their meal too. One friend is very picky about his food and he said his spaghetti was very good. Our only complaint was they were out of several of the recommended dishes on the menu. This was early in the week, so that may be why. Also, we were there during election night so the noise level was higher than anticipated because they were hosting a winning candidates after party but hey we got free champagne!"

  • "We loved this place. They stay open late on weekends which is great, we didn't have dinner until 10pm, fantastic. Our waiter was fairly new and a little rough around the edges but he was so nice it was fine. The food was wonderful and the establishment is very cute, you won't be disappointed. The bar side was very fun and comfortable, no worries about the "meat market" atmosphere. This is a place you can just go and enjoy an evening out. We will certainly return. Oh, my husband had a NY strip, it was awesome, I had a salmon something with white wine sauce, yum!! We had a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and a couple of glasses of the house Malbec, it was all great. "

  • "My wife and I visited Claudio's on our 33rd Anniversary. I had steak and my wife had the Tortellini. The steak was good. The Tortellini was outstanding. The staff were friendly. We also had the Tiramisu. You will like it all. However, the Italian dishes or truly superb. "

  • "Great job done by Claudio and staff. Our table of 6 felt special and the food was expertly done, especially the meatballs for a very important to go order! We will be back very soon."

  • "The food and entertainment was outstanding. The table for two was a little uncomfortable. The wine by the glass was inferior. We first tried the merlot. It was horrible. The pinot noir was a little better."

  • "After reading the reviews we thought we were in for a nightmarish experience, we had a wonderful time , the food was good, the atmosphere was great ,the pricing was reasonable, the service could be "quicker". but for a night out for Dining and Dancing Claudio's is a wonderful place to go. Our first experience was a good one , we will be back. Gary D."

  • "Claudio's Piano Bar and Restaurant has great Italian food. Plus, they have live music and a dance floor almost every night of the week. The restaurant is divided into two sections: the restaurant side and the bar / live music side. You can have dinner on either side, or you can sit and have drinks on either side. The crowd is a little older, it is not a hangout for kids. It has an upscale vibe, so it is great to take a date regardless of age. They also have a strolling magician who works there on weekends, he is great. This is a great place to go have dinner, or to have drinks with friends."

  • "The food was cold, after waiting nearly 90 minutes for our meal, it arrived cold and very unappealing. The veggies were under cooked and the meat dishes were over cooked. The presentation was undesirable to say the least. We asked to speak to someone about it and the "manager" came over and argued with us on the issue. I will not be going back to Claudio's in League City and will be sure that I pass my experience on to anyone I hear of going to try the restaurant."

  • "We were seated shortly after we arrived, only waiting a few minutes; but for good reason. The table they gave us was no more than 2 feet long and wide, with plates and silverware almost touching. We mentioned the size of the table and were given laughter and nonchalant banter about its size - it's worth mentioning other couples were seated at tables that held four to six occupants. I was immediately put off the place by the table and lack of care. We stayed because she really had her heart set on Italian food and a piano bar. We then sat for a good 10-15minutes without acknowledgement. No wine list, no bread, not even a greeting from our waiter or waitress. That was enough. There was a great Brazilian steakhouse a few miles down the road."

  • "I made the reservations thru Open Table & had no problems as stated by other reviewers. It was packed, so we realized the service may be slow even though it was 8:45 p.m. The service was excellent until the period of time between our soup & entree. We ended up waiting 45 minutes between soup & entree. But the ambiance & our mood kept us from causing a scene. We were not compensated for the inconvenience. From our reservation time (we were seated right at our reserved time) to the time we left was a total of 2 1/2 hours - and we took the desserts to go because we were tired of being there. But overall, it was a very good night. I guess a special occasion like Valentine's Day coupled with our good attitude gave us a more positive experience."

  • "Special limited Valentine menu was a surprise, but the food was very good and I would be interested in re-visiting to try their regular menu. The crab cake had a butter sauce that didn't overwhelm the crab and the lobster bisque was excellent....not too rich but very good. We both chose the filet mignon entrée that had a sauce with a bit of a kick...nice and cooked to order. The crème brulee fruit dessert looked rather flat but the tiramisu was tasty. Music and dancing is available and the music is not so loud that we couldn't carry on a conversation where we were sitting, but closer to the bar may have been a different story. Outdoor patio looked inviting."

  • "The steak we had was cooked to perfection, entertainment excellent for a early sitting on a week night. It was my friends birthday and they gave us a complimentary slice of cake. We totally enjoyed the evening."

  • "We were in Clear Lake with a group from Louisiana for the weekend and wanted to break away for a couple's dinner. On short notice, we scoured the open table options in the area .Came up w Claudio's We went there and had a fantastic time. The restaurant is divided into two parts where on one side there is a well appointed dining room and the other has more dining tables , a bar and a dance floor... All with a very elegant Italian flair. The entertainment was spot on , and not too loud to preclude dinner talk. The food was traditional Italian flair that was excellent . The entire operation is a family production directed personally by Claudio. Did I mention the strolling magician??? We absolutely will return , with our friends!! A"

  • "We had made reservation 2 weeks prior to New Years Eve. Our reservations were for 7:30. We arrived to find out that there were only 3 seatings available. 7,8,and 9pm. They did honor our reservation but we were forced to leave our table at 8:45 . I understand the problems of New Years Eve and in my ratings above I took that into consideration. However, the resturant should have commuicated with Open Table so that the website limited the reservations to the special conditions of New Years Eve."

  • "Since we made our reservation through Open Table and not through Claudio's, there was some confusion about our seating but it was worked out. We were never hurried but accommodated in a most gracious manner. I would recommend this little jewel to anyone wanting a romantic, lovely dining experience."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Food was good. We had a 6:30 pm reservation for five people when it wasn't real busy on New Year's Eve. With that said it was the worst service we have ever experienced at any restaurant. We eat out frequently! We had been to Claudio's before and expected better."

  • "I am always afraid restaurants will just mail it on holidays but not the case with Claudio's. My parents were visiting from chicago so I was a little worried we were not going into houston. Everything was great, from apps (beef carpaccio, shrimp cocktail crab cakes) to entrees (shrimp pasta, salmon, snapper, pork chops). The tiramisu is a must for the table to share. We got ours to go but would have ordered two if we knew it would be that good. Overall the food might not be as good as da Marco but the service is much better and the atmosphere is different but more for families. It is also a piano bar so the music is audible but not intrusive."

  • "We got early for our reservation (they open at 5pm) but everybody got up to speed as soon as we walked in. We were not in a hurry that's why we went to the bar. Got our drinks to perfection and, you know what? Instead of going to our table we decided to stay at the bar, we had our dinner there and couldn't be better. Thank you for the awesome experience."

  • "Nice atmosphere and this restaurant is open, contrary to what Yelp says. Home made pasta was great and the piano players did a good job as well. Service was terrible though. Terri seemed stretched from 1 side of the restaurant to the other. I had to go to the bar twice to order cocktails and we had to flag down other wait staff to help us. We will most likely try this restaurant again as the food was good."

  • "Picked a new place for our 1st year anniversary and WOW what a great experience! Claudio's is a Bar and Restaurant but the noise level on the restaurant side was low enough to carry on conversation but could still enjoy the music. Server was very friendly - as were ALL the employees and owner - and helpful. No problems substituting sauce on the pastas. Food was GREAT! This place is defiantly on our top 10 list. Thanks to the band for singing Happy Anniversary AND Happy Birthday."
