    The food was good......none of the entree items were a stand out, but for a buffet it had variety and the quality of meats was good. The desserts however would be the reason we will be back! They were amazing! We were celebrating our 15yr wedding anniversary and had a nice dinner with a great view of the game! The service was great.

    The server was good and we like to convenience of the location, but the food was not very good. It is hard to keep food moist and warm on a buffet. All in all it was not worth the price we paid.

    This is a fun place to dine before or during a Rockets game. The buffet has a wide selection of foods and desserts, all beautifully presented. When we dined we had fried turkey with cranberries, pork tenderloin, chicken breast, beef tenderloin, shrimp, scallops, asparagus, baked sweet potatoes, creamed kale and bacon (best ever!!!!), key lime pie, bread pudding, and enormous chocolate chunk cookies. (this is just a small sampling of what they served when we were there). They kept the food stations stocked at all times, constantly replenishing whenever necessary. Table servers are attentive and helpful. Buffet is $42.95 per person and absolutely worth it. I highly recommend making reservations, as you may not get a table otherwise.

    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.

    Dined on 3/9/2014
    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.

  • Dinner and a Rockets game
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/9/2014
    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
    Marl
    Dined on 1/18/2014
    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 :)

    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.

    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!
