Diner Reviews
  • "Food was excellent - well-presented and prepared. Great variety. Easy to navigate the buffet. Service was attentive. Great way to dine before a Rockets game."

  • "The entire waitstaff was engaging and attentive to my specific needs/requests."

  • "Everything was wonderful except we were put in the back room on the right when you first walk in. The ambiance was not good. It needs to be decorated better. For the price we paid, it was disappointing because it was a birthday celebration. The food was excellent but the appearance of the room made the experience not as enjoyable. We have been there multiple times and this was the first time we were put in the back room."

  • "Took my fiance' here as a birthday outing to watch the Rockets vs Trailblazers. AHMET, our server, was so accomodating and generous. He made sure we were taken care of and even engaged us in some good conversation! Ahmet was what made this expericence an excellent one. I observed other servers and they had no energy and didn't smile or act like they wanted to be at work. Though it was a buffett, Ahmet made us feel like we were at a sit down dinner and served us like we were VIP."

  • "We always come to the Red & White Bistro before the Rockets' games. It's easier and we don't fight the parking crowds. The food is always very well prepared and presented. The staff are attentive. Sometimes the servers are too busy to check often for drinks, but it's not too bad. This last time the beef chunks in the beef stroganoff dish was very tough. It must not have been braised correctly. The roast beef was tender. All else was delicious. My husband especially loved the desserts with the crème broule custard being his favorite."

  • "Perhaps you might consider switching to one type food each night - Italian one night; Greek one night; Mexican one night.; BBQ one night. trying to have ALL the different options makes none of them really great. what about offering "game fare" - burgers, hot dogs, etc - in a sit down setting."

  • "The Red & White Wine Bistro is a first class experience of gourmet dining stations with a reasonably priced high end wine list. It is a real treat to take my wife and customers. Only issue is with the early seating which is typically 15 or 30 minutes prior to the Toyota Center doors open. We always have to debate with the security folks that we have reservations then end up simply being late for our reservation - frustrating situation to debate with valued customers in tow."

  • "The food is really good considering it is buffet style. Upside is the quality of food and convenience of location in Toyota Center for pre game...downside is the expense especially cocktails and overpriced wine list. Steer clear of wine list and a party of four can anticipate spending about $250 including tip for dinner. Great desert buffet :)"

  • "Enjoyed the game ambiance... food was great...service was very good too. Just not enough time to fully appreciate the cuisine because of time limitation."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "we would definitely go again as the food is much better than the other center options. the prime rib and bbq were well prepared meats as well as the Louisiana style shrimp with sausage. the chicken and salmon were average. excellent vegetable options especially the warm cauliflower and grilled vegetables. also a nice selection of cheeses and fruits. dessert choices were limited but more interesting than on most buffets. next time if we dine during the game, we will ask for a table closer to the court where we could see all of the superior screen without people in between. the waitstaff especially our server adhmet made us feel welcome and appreciated. we would have stayed longer but our regular seats have a better view of the game"

  • "Patrons attending the Rockets' games who also eat at the Red & White Wine Bistro for the first time are pleasantly surprised to learn that a restaurant of its quality is located within Toyota Center.............. I think its existence needs to be better communicated among the business industry and/or advertised. When I have business guests accompanying me it gives you a good 1-1/2 hours to chat and kind of bond............ I think the restaurant is a rousing success for new comers and old, but I feel the attraction could be better utilized."

  • "A friend recommended Red & White Bistro to me and it seems that I have been let in on a well-kept secret dining spot in the Toyota Center. The food was delicious, well prepared with compelling combinations. Our server was friendly and quick, often anticipating our needs in advance. And the dessert bar, well, let's just say to remember to leave room for dessert!"

  • "The last 3-4 times we've eaten here the food was just mediocre but it was fabulous this time. Hopefully the chefs are reading the reviews on Open Table. They had a nice selection. The salmon topped with a jalapeno sauce was excellent as was the garlic shrimp and steamed (perfectly!) rice. The fruits and cheeses are always yummy but the strawberries were larger than large lemons, they were sweet and divine! Tried the Yao Ming Cab (2009) and it was very smooth!"
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "The food was all well prepared and carefully served at the buffet stations. I especially like the servers and staff for good attitude and attentiveness. The food is also fresh and not overcooked or mushy."

  • "I've come here quite a few times already. The food is amazing. But I've learned to start with desserts and then go to the salads and entrees. I've had different servers.. Some better than others. One was a little rude, seemed like she hated her job. Another seemed like she was spread out too thin. We barely saw her, had to ask the chefs for a glass of water, when my glass was running low. But the food is what keeps me coming back! The only thing I'd change is to change up the menu a little and also the attitude of one chef, I asked her a question about the pasta and she made me feel dumb and i began to regret even asking. Heard another customer ask the same question and received the same attitude. But again love the food! :)"

  • "A unique venue for fine dining that's fun and exciting. Great view of the court and action while enjoying an excellent upscale Buffett style menu of a wide variety of well prepared foods. Lots of choices, everyone should be able to find a favorite dish. Nice wine list by the bottle. Could have had a bit larger choice selection by the glass, though they had the main stays covered. Would recommend highly to take friends, customers, or out of town guests for a different experience they will enjoy and remember."

  • "My son wanted to see a game for his birthday. I bought tickets online and booked a reservation to the Red and White as a special surprise. We had so much fun at our table that we stayed till the game ended. My son's favorite food is pasta, unfortunately you had none that night. I dined in the Red and White 3 times and I noticed this time was less food and less Chefs on floor. We still had a great time! Our server was awesome!"
