Here for houston restaurant weeks. Walking in, you can tell its a popular place with people constantly walking in. Its dimly lit, which is romantic except that it get a bit loud during the dinner hours. But if you don't mind that, definitely give this place a try! The wait staff is just perfect. They're friendly and give you whatever you may want and need, without constantly bothering you like some places do. The food was delicious! I was very impressed. The snapper is a must! The churrasco steak is raved about, but personally I thought the snapper was better. Their menu for houston restaurant week is quite impressive, and they didn't seem to shrink the portions either.

A little salty
We've eaten at churrocos many times and decided to enjoy dinner there after a football game. We arrived earlier than our reservation & was seated immediately. Our waiter was prompt & attentive in getting our drink orders. We both ordered a seafood dish which was presented beautifully. The only problem was it was so salty! We attributed it to the butter sauce on top. We did eat our meals and it was mostly good. Could have done without all the salt.
Our service was amazing and the restaurant was nice

Excellent Dining Experience!
This was our first visit, but the restaurant had been recommended by many friends and family. We loved everything about it from the delicious food to the romantic atmosphere. Loved the way our glasses were never empty and service was so attentive. We will highly recommend it to everyone we know. Thank you for providing such a lovely evening!

We went for my fiance's birthday
We went for my fiance's birthday during Houston Restaurant Week. They had the best selection from the HRW menus. When I told the waiter that it was my fiance's birthday, he remembered and automatically offered the birthday dessert special, the flaming Tres Leches with a shot of rum on top. Great food and awesome staff.

Food and service were wonderful.
Food and service were wonderful. We left wondering why it had been so long since we had eaten at Churrascos. We will definitely be back soon.

A good meal in a city of many
Churrascos is a good restaurant and the service was outstanding. They have a good wine list which they told me is being revamped. The food is good and Argentinian in nature. My wife loved her fish and raved about it. I had lamb chops which were good, but I've had better. I've eaten there on 3 occassions and have not been dissapointed.

Very pleasent experience
I enjoyed the overall experience. The food was very good, the service was very good and the ambience was very nice. All in all it was a nice dining experience.

Great as usual
We visited Churrascos-River Oaks for a dinner with a business associate from Alabama and we wanted something other than the standard high-end chain steakhouse so prevalent in Houston. We were all pleased with both the service and the food. My husband and I took advantage of the anniversary special and it was just the right amount of food for a weeknight dinner. Our out of town guest ordered the 10 oz. churrasco steak and remarked that it was better than he ever expected.

Nice argentinian style churrasco with chimichurri
Very poor wine list
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good dining and good service.
Good dining and good service. Noise level is very loud! This is not a romantic place because of the noise. Conversations from other tables intrude.. The food is well prepared and the serving staff pleasant, efficient, and helpful. Front desk personnel are not particularly welcoming but do get patrons to their tables quickly.

Best Possible Outcome for Proposal
I had nearly every detail of my proposal planned out, night at the symphony, movies before that, but I knew that the night wouldn't be complete without a spectacular stop for dinner. No less than 4 days before I popped the question,I hop on opentable to look for something in near the Jones Hall downtown, something high class but not overly pretentious.Thats when I found Churrascos. The prices were certainly higher than your typical chain joint, but the quality of the food,service and atmosphere (and really the food alone) justify the cost. I can't thank the management team and staff at this establishment enough for helping not only the night go off without a hitch, but playing it off so smoothly that my fiancee never suspected a thing, AAA+

Great food and service and you must try the tres leches. We'll be back.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even though I haven't been to Churrasco's in a while, it was just as good as ever...this restaurant always provides consistently great food as well as an overall great dining experience.

Churrasco's River Oaks
We've been going to this particular restaurant since it opened about 23 years ago. The food and service has always been great. This meal was no exception. The banana chips with red sauce and Chimichurra sauce are a great starter while you're waiting. The mixed empanadas as an appetizer were perfect. They are a great meal starter; hot (not spicy hot) and tasty. The Gambas a las Brasas (not on the menu-have to ask for it) was excellent. It consists of a 6 oz. churrasco steak and two grilled shrimp served quesadilla style. My Churrasco steak was cooked medium well to perfection.I don't care what anyone says about other Tres Leche desserts anywhere else, this is the original and the best you will ever find.

Great Evening at Churrasco's
Had a really nice evening at Churrasco's. Made an early reservation as we had theatre tickets downtown and even at the early dining hour the service was terriffic. Got a really nice recommendation on an Argentinian wine that went great with dinner and the food was really good. My wife had the house salad and I the ceasar and they were both good. My meal was especially great as it was a blend of seafood and pork and the sauces were really tasty without being too salty.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had excellent service and all food/spirits/desserts were excellent!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service
When we arrived our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our waiter and the staff were very attentive. The meals were excellent. Just know that this is an expensive restaurant.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I dined her on last Sunday for brunch , words cannot express what a wonderful time we had. Our server was the BEST... He was truly outstanding; we will definitely be back and most definitely to see our server ..the food was impicible, truly tasteful and flavorful.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be back soon
We made a reservation 1 hour prior to the restaurant opening. We arrived 15 minutes early and the table was already ready for us. Excellent service and when they say bottomless drinks, they mean bottomless, I quit at the right time lol. I have also been to the churrasscos at reliant for the texans games and this by far is 10 time better and I never had a complaint about them before :)
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I get it Churrascos is a staple and it is good. There are other places that I would rather spend $150 on dinner that is a bit better quality and doesn't feel like a chain.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good time
Been going here since it first open. Great food and great service everytime.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of fresh new choices. Love the service. Wait staff is gracious and upbeat. Food did not take long. Delicious. Had the mixed grill.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful place to celebrate
A friend and I celebrated our birthdays at Churrasco's and the evening was simply delightful.
Delicious food and accommodating staff. A win win!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Knew nothing about the area, but relied on Open Table reviews. They were correct. Very friendly staff. Excellent service overall, provided by informative and friendly people. The food was great. We just happened to be there on a night when they were doing a pairings dinner. It was terrific. Interesting food with unusual and effective wine pairings. I will definitely be back.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner spot
Easy for a last minute choice with children. Seated us immediately.
Great wine list
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just visited it again
I have been visiting Churrascos for years and I enjoy how they have changed their menu.
There might be a tad of service personel overload that keeps hovering about like helicopters.
Great food and Cordua knows the good Chilean wines!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am always pleased with my experience. Great food and service.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM

Churrascos is our 'to go' restaurant for ourselves and family and visitors as well. The quality is always great and the service has always been awesome.

The service and food is very good but a bit over priced.

My Birthday Celebration
I love dining here, especially since we only go for special occassions...to keep it special of course. Our server was very attentive and the food was just as delicous as I remember. I always get the Pollo Encamisado because I can't get enough of it and my husband likes to try different things. He had the Cerdo Marinero...he can't stop talking about it! And the tres leches was creamy like always, including the presentation with the flamed frosting. We will definitely return for our next special occasion. Thank you.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We celebrated a special occasion
We celebrated a special occasion there and everything worked out great! They knew what we had selected for our menu, the service was excellent and the food was delicious as always. They placed us at a table where we could mingle a little while before sitting down without disturbing other diners. It was a wonderful evening with friends!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM

My wife and I just celebrated
My wife and I just celebrated our 32nd anniversary. We chose Churrasco's for this purpose. It was a very enjoyable experience. Service was outstanding. Food was superb. Would recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
What an amazing brunch! A Texas size brunch with anything you could want from breakfast, pasta, seafood to the regular menu offerings.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still great after all these years
I haven't been to Churrascos in years ... I chose them to celebrate a work anniversary for nostalgia and because of continued good reviews. There were 6 of us. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful in making sure everything was fine. He was knowledgeable about the wine. Service was nicely paced as we spent the evening. Since we had a group, our waiter offered to create a combination of appetizers for the group - nice - we didn't have to choose! Ceviche, crab fingers and empanadas - classics and very tasty. The Churrasco steak - excellent! I also had some flaming dessert which tasted like tres leches with roasted marshmallows. All enjoyed! I highly recommend - Churrasco's has been consistently exceptional throughout the years.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for a birthday dinner. Service was good, noise level was ok. Had the surf and turf special. Steak was excellent, the lobster was honestly not notable. Tres leches was excellent.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We chose this spot for a birthday dinner and it was amazing. The service was great and the food was delicious. The special rum tres leches was absolutely awesome. The way they prepared it with the fire show, we loved it. We will definitely come back on another special occasion.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Culinary backdrop to reconnecting
I met a former professor of mine for lunch here. We were treated like royalty, and the service provided by Manuel was excellent. The beverages and food were delicious and as always, it was a special meal that makes you lose track of time as you enjoy the conversation and the satiating meal. Amazing!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great evening, great food
I brought two guests from Spain who have also traveled Latin America and they were blown away. The steak as always was special and we had a fantastic Malbec (blend) that was below $60/bottle. The empanadas, salad, was celebrated. It was a very busy Saturday night and they were apologetic for their perceived delay of the steaks...which the Spaniards nor I didn't notice. Without our saying anything, the manager brought out a complimentary tres leches with the flame show. Bravo!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
the best tasting food in town!
Churrosco is always the first choice for any special occasion. Last night was my son's 19th birthday and after taking him for the first time for our anniversary in October, he wanted to return for his birthday. It isone of those places with every mouthful your eyes roll back and you say "yum"! Although I sometimes regret their changing menu since I have found some favorites, it is nice to have some new things to try as well. I am disappointed that they got rid of the lovely vegetable plate they used to bring out and now replaced it with a much smaller plate with mainly rice on it. I miss the vegetables which are such a nice compliment to any meal. The tres leches is definitely the best in town no competition there!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Churrasco's River Oaks is
Churrasco's River Oaks is one of the most consistent and reliable restaurants in town. The food is always excellent, the service prompt, efficient and friendly without being in your face, the wine list covers a variety of wine regions, mostly of Latin America and the prices are right.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the variety of options on the menu. Everything was wonderful. Service was excellent.
