Food is always excellent- every item on the menu!! Chef Boada always says hi to guests and asks how the meal is.
Amazing as always.
Great ambiance and friendly staff--ALWAYS consistently good! One of our favorites in Houston!
My favorite neighborhood restaurant. Cozy, great food & wine...try the creme brûlée!
Our first time at this restaurant. We joined friends from Australia who are there weekly when they lived in Houston. The food was absolutely amazing, the chef/owner came by for a visit, and the service was wonderful. Prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Highly recommend!!
First time here. Dined in the wine room with my wife on her birthday. A little small but good for two. Food was delicious. Servers very attentive and friendly. Price was very reasonable. Without Open Table I never would have found this restaurant. Will certainly be back many times.
Wonderful evening! Food was superb and ambiance was excellent. Definitely a place we will come visit again.
Arturo Boada's always offers a great meal. The rather short menu was augmented by a few healthy specials. One was a seafood paella that was delicious and actually would be enough for two. The other was a flounder fillet with a nice crabmeat dressing with a light sauce. Wine choices cover a good range and are reasonably priced. It was a full house, but the service was still very attentive and competent and included a personable visit by the owner!
Chef Arturo has not lost his touch. He makes my favorite pesto chicken pasta from his old restaurant. Appreciate so much. The staff are so attentive and pay attention to detail. Great dining experience .
Fantastic as always. The food, service, ambience.
as always we loved our dining experience at Arturo Boada! Always have a great time!
Lovely professional and friendly service. Great, cozy restaurant that is great for a casual meal or a special occasion.
Amazing evening. Wonderful food.
Always excellent. Super personal attention. Private small wine room is so wonderful. Great for date or just to help those with poor hearing. No extra charge, and just extra special.
Arturo’s is always great!
Fish was prepared perfectly. Ravioli was rich and filling.
Great neighborhood restaurant. Small but nice. Excellent menu, food, and service. Neither casual nor fancy.
Fantastic food and service. Chef Arturo created memorable dishes. Definite 5 star rating.
Great food and service. Always enjoy this restaurant. Love the chef/owner!
Great service, very good food. Great place for all occasions. Ask for Camilo to be your server. The “wine room” would be a real treat for a special occasion.
Delicious seafood; healthy portions; good ambiance for a date; great service.
Cozy and intimate.. attentive service while at the same time leaving you alone and letting you enjoy your experience.. a pop-in from the executive chef/owner.. and amazing food. Couldn’t be more pleased. I will definitely be coming back!
Great food!! Also, excellent service. Noise level is fairly low, so it is intimate and romantic.
We are from New York and made reservations for 4 through Open Table based upon reviews and the menu. We were seated in the wine room, which just accommodates a cozy table for 4. This was likely just our luck, but it was perfect. We noticed the main room was much louder and more lively, but our "room" was perfect. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Arturo came by our table twice to say hello and check on us. Dessert was fabulous.
All in all a wonderful night out with friends.
Small family-run environment with excellent quality and good wine selection.
Hands down the best Italian food I have ever had. Definitely worth another visit. Note that it is an Italian family reataurant, so noise levels are high.
I have lived in Houston for over 30 years, and Arturo Boada is my top of the list favorite restaurant. I have eaten there many times - on dates with my husband, celebrating a girlfriend's birthday lunch, and for dinner with other couples. It has consistently been fantastic, in terms of both the service as well as the food. Nice selection of wine and our waiter always makes sure I am happy with my choice and offers a taste to be sure in advance. I am a hard person to please in terms of eating out because I have food intolerances (no grain, no diary) and they accommodate me every time. The fish is always fresh, and the portion sizes never skimpy. I love this cozy gem of a restaurant tucked away on Delmonte. Always a pleasure to eat there...
As always we enjoyed the food and service so much! The only thing I would change is the noise level. It’s a small place and when it fills up, it’s loud.
I had been wanting to try this restaurant for several years but my husband (meat and potato eater) wasn't keen on it. Well, I pulled the wife's birthday trump card and we visited with some friends. The food is A-MA-zing!!! And I'm please to say my husband is just as enthusiastic and wants to return soon. We started with the Camarones Henesy En Hamaca (phenomenal - the sauce is to die for), the cerviche (literally, best I've ever had), the Beef Blue (outstanding - my husband tried my friends tapa and decided to order it for his main meal), and Carnita tacos (decent.) For dinner, we had the Suhrid Spicy beef tips (good), the fresh mussels with jalapeno and cilantro sauce (excellent), the Beef Blue (an obvious repeat), and the Veal Chop (very good.) Additionally, the service was excellent - professional, fun, and informative. For the four of us, dinner + 1 bottle of wine + tip was under $400.00 - not bad at all for fine dining. We will absolutely return.
Arturos continues his dynasty in the out of the way Gem. Incredible food and amazing staff!
Our food was exceptional and the waitstaff was very attentive. We had a lovely dinner with friends. We will return.
The service was really good and the food was exceptional. As a Tapas/ Bar seating is perfect. I recommend this restaurant 100%.
Great food and service as always! The fish was excellent tonight.
What a find! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our "date night". Excellent service too.
AB has always maintained a high level of excellence in its cuisine. Does not disappoint.
Fantastic food, and superior service! The snapper and the Mama Sonia Ravioli were great choices!
About the food: Great Italian-themed offerings! Burrata appetizer and farfalle pasta main course were super. Tiramisu has unusual and pleasant flavor, perhaps citrus flavoring in the sponge cake? Good wine selection available.
On the personal side: Diego is an attentive and enthusiastic waiter and an exceptional guide to the wonderful culinary creations of chef Arturo Boada. Chef Boada visits individual tables to make sure that everyone is happy.
