We had a great time, food was wonderful and our waiter was fun and nice.
it was chilly night , so not wanted to sit by door and he changed our table.
there were some very noisy guests, but, I guess that is the norm, people don't
have restaurant voices anymore. Everyone wants to be heard over the other.
that was our only complaint.
all good.

Four of us sat in the wine room. Highly recommended. Very nice and quiet. We had the sea bass with a saffron broth. Awesome flavors. Carmilo was out server and he is about as good as it gets. Great evening. Had a long talk with Chef Arturo which made for a delightful experience. Will definitely return.

It is a small restaurant and the tables are very close to each other. The noise level is high, but the food is worth it. I would recommend going with another couple. It is not intimate setting for a "date" night.

Really enjoyed the mix of Spanish and Italian cuisine. Tapas were perfect and balanced with a great wine selection. Best we’ve found since leaving the variety and authenticity in Singapore. Loved the fun service and caring by the owner. Definitely coming back with friends.

We had another terrific meal at Arturo's. The snapper special as as good as I have ever had. My wife enjoyed her tuna. The apple tart is not to be missed.

The only downside is that the restaurant is small, and Saturday night they had a number of large parties. One of them backed up to my chair at our table for four, and the only path to the restrooms was in between my chair and the large party. Needless to say, I was bumped into all night.

The upside is that they have one of the most reasonable wine menus in Houston. We took full advantage.

The food at Arturo Borda is always excellent as is the service. If you can get the table in the wine room, you will have total privacy for you and your group. Chef Arturo always makes the rounds asking patrons how the food is. We have enjoyed every dinner we have had there!

The evening was very nice our server was Diego he was absolutely fabulous he created an atmosphere of wanting to try the many dishes at Arturo. They were all very good and my wife’s ravioli was delicious. The only negative was I didn’t get the Latin/Italian flavor but I will definitely go back to try the other dishes ps it is in a strip mall but the restaurant was charming

Arturo's is a a true gem. The best of the best food in Houston. The fish is always the freshest. The ceviche is amazing as is the burrata appetizer.
The staff is friendly, welcoming and always happy to greet their diners.
This is our favorite spot for so many reasons!

The food was cooked to the very perfection. I got the Rigatoni with sugar rose sauce, my friend got the fettuccine and shrimp and both of them were outstanding, the real taste of fresh food! The empanadas for appetizer are a must, don't skip it or you will regret it. For desert we got the creme brulee, delicate and tasty. The service was amazing, Diego rocks, he is the best! He gave us the perfect recommendations and was very kind and prompt. The chef Arturo was there and came to the table to make sure everything was okay, very friendly and attentive. Thanks for the great experience. Highly recommended!

The seafood in this place was quite delicious.
We started with the little neck clams steamed with white wine, garlic, lemon, red pepper and it brought me back to some of my fondest memories when I lived in NYC.
We followed that up with their mussels cooked with jalapeño and tomatillo peppers also with red pepper flakes and white wine and some cilantro. Spectacular flavor. We them met the chef owner Arturo and cooked up a ahi tuna steak w soy ginger flavors .....as they say forgetaboutit!!!
Definitely a must stop on the Houston stay overs.

It was my wife’s birthday. There were 8 of us. Mr. Boada’s team took such good care of us. Very attentive service. And the food was... spectacular! They even sliced the cake for us. We asked that the extra slices be passed around to the others in the restaurant. Great experience! Our third time here.

We love this restaurant. The food is always excellent. While the menu has remained the same over the last year or so, they always have specials (which, by the way, are very fresh). The mussels are great (no matter which sauce you use) as are the steaks/veal chops. Always order the garlic bread. To die for.
