We love your restaurant. We’ll be back soon with more friends!
We had a wonderful time! The food and wine are the best in town. Our waiter fantastic! Thank you so much for making our time together special.
Love their food and everything about this place!
Spectacular authentic Spanish cuisine
This is my favorite restaurant in Houston. We always come when we are visiting. The last meal was outstanding.
The red snapper had a delicious sauce and the vegetables were perfect. Had the apple tart fir dessert. It was excellent , the thin pastry on the bottom was awesome. Please don’t miss this wonderful restaurant if you are in the area.
As usual, a very pleasant dining experience. The staff is very experienced and provided a couple of fine wine recommendations.
They also have do a good job with their socially distanced table layout.
What an excellent place to dine! The food is outstanding. My husband had the Gulf Red Snapper and raved about how delicious the green beans were that accompanied the snapper. The seared sea scallops with risotto were exquisite! I allowed my husband one taste of the risotto. The service was excellent and we felt quite safe with their COVID19 safety protocols. I look forward to another visit.
As always everything was perfect. Costa Brava is one of our favorites.
Great service, food and ambiance!
Fabulous as always!
The only reason I am giving the restaurant a bit lower score than I normally would is because of a disappointing experience we had this past Friday. It is important for me to note that this is only the second time my husband and I have been out since March, so we would have liked to have a remarkable experience. Everything was marvelous until the last half of the meal. A couple was seated near us who walked into the restaurant on a Facetime call on speaker. It was loud and obnoxious. I kept waiting for the waiter to tell them to shut it down, but he did not. He served them drinks and appetizers and the couple kept up the loud conversation. I looked for the manager but I could not find her to ask her to intervene. Before that, the meal was great-food very good, the wine good, the ambiance very comfortable. I did call the restaurant the next day and I was told that they have a zero-tolerance policy, but being that they were seated while on the call and the waiter served them, it does not appear that is so. It is disappointing as this is an expensive evening and to hear someone's personal phone call for half my meal definitely subtracts from the experience at Costa Brava.
This was my husband's 80th birthday. Because of the covid-19 we couldn't do our trip
to Hawaii and the storm, Beta, we had to cancel our plans to Galveston. What a better
place to have a very nice celebration, Costa Brava Bistro! Service was tops, food was
as we expected as we have eaten here a few times and even done pick up in recent
We love the food so much. It’s always a treat to dine here!
Excellent meal. I had the duck breast which was cooked perfectly though the skin was not as crispy as I would have liked. My wife had the scallops and shrimp with risotto which was outstanding. We started with the octopus which as always was great. We also had the escargot which was really good but not as good as the octopus. Ended with the apple tart which was just right with a glass of port.
The service is outstanding and always makes for a special occasion.
The food was delicious and the service welcoming and attentive. I will definitely be returning.
I love this place. It’s perfect on many levels. The food is very reminiscent of the best food I’ve had while in Spain.
Great food, service, and overall experience.
Amazing meal in a safe and lovely venue. I have always had an outstanding experience.
This restaurant has been a favorite of ours for years. The menu is proven, the owner really cares about her establishment and the service is superb. Above all, the quality has remained consistently high. My wife and I often choose Costa Brava for our dates, special occasions and friends’ get-togethers. Strongly recommended.
Great food, great service
Food, servile and atmosphere were great as usual. Their Martini's are a joke. They are served in a small four swallow glass which cost's $13. For the same price at Tony Mandola's you get a real martini glass that is completely filled and will serve me for the entire meal.
Lovely meal. Enjoyed the food wine and ambiance.
First outing to dine-in to celebrate our anniversary. The food and service were excellent as usual. Angela always make you feel welcomed!
Thank you for a delicious meal as usual!
Wonderful meal. Very clean and simple and not more than we could eat. Just right.
Excellent fresh food, deliciously prepared and not overly salted. I find that to be the downfall of most kitchens.
The service and ambiance also first class. Will be back!
Great food. Restaurant Is usually full but it was pretty quiet during COVID era. Food and service was as good as always. Octopus appetizer was some of the best I have ever eaten. It was super tender and delicious.
Service was excellent and the food outstanding. Very relaxing atmosphere and overall great experience. Have dined there many times and will continue to do so.
Great location and food was outstanding as always. The servers were very careful and we generally felt safe
One of our favorite restaurants!
Food was excellent, each dish perfectly cooked and very fresh.
Hard to find a true European bistro in Houston... Costa Brava is one of the handful that does it well. The menu is a nice balance of longstanding favorites and new/seasonal dishes. The staff has adapted very well to the whole social-distancing paradigm: masks and gloves for the staff, disposable menus, good spacing of tables. I'm a fan.
Loved the food and service was great! Will definitely be back again.
We needed to go out. Our first dinner out. Kitty and Angeles did a great job of making us feel safe and welcome.
Wonder food & ambiance!! Absolutely delicious!!
Great overall food, drinks and service! Don't miss this place!
Everything was great!
This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Houston
Great meal, celebrating our son's 22nd birthday! Would highly recommend for any special occasion.
