Costa Brava Bistro
Open Table's 2016 list - "100 Best Restaurants for Foodies in America"
We found this place with a google search. We had a great dinner. The food was delicious and the service was great. The restaurant is small but it has a charming, romantic ambiance to it.
Outstanding food and service. Kitty and staff are wonderful. My wife and I travel extensively and one of the very best restaurants is just around the corner.
Excellent food and excellent service. We will definitely go back soon.
We love the new space. The food was super and we dined in quiet even though the restaurant was fairly full. Consistently delicious food and good wine list.
Our forth visit and first to the new location. Once again, the food was wonderful and the wines terrific.
Excellent meal at new location. A little pricey but worth it.
First time. Treated dad, mom and kiddo for a Father’s Day weekend celebration. The ambience was European, simple,classy and warm. The ocutupus was superb! The apple pie and creme Brulee (brûlée needed to be warmer) were divine and decadent, yum. Service was decent. Would repeat
Nice evening meeting friends - had reservations- sat at bar til friends arrived. Nice wine list, several good food specials, relaxed elegant dinner.
Thanks for a great meal!
I was there for lunch and had a squid ink rice seafood dish. It was delicious and beautifully presented. This is a very special restaurant
Great food and attentive service.
This was an outstanding choice for a business lunch. The wait staff was accommodating and paid attention, but let us concentrate on business without being intrusive. The food was excellent and the new location's interior os very pleasing.
Beautiful new home and environment. Felt very welcomed for our return for dinner as this is one of our favorite Saturday places to have a great meal with friends and guests. Waiter forgot to offer water the entire time once we were served. Didn’t ask as we were having a lively conversation
First time here, and we were delighted with all. Lovely menu, and our waiter was absolutely superb!
magnificent restaurant to celebrate any kind of occasion. European atmosphere. Happy to back
One of the best restaurants in Houston. Small, intimate, personal, comfortable, welcoming, and very relaxing. Add wonderful food, great wine, and fantastic wait staff and they've once again knocked it out of the park. Surprised its not more difficult to get a table then it already is. Can't wait to return!
We have eaten at Costa Brava many times an it never disappoints.
love this place. We've never had a bad dinner there in all the years they've been open. One of our all-time favorite restaurants in Houston!!
We spent $168 with the tip for two of us — drinks, appetizer, entree, dessert, coffee. We can't afford that every day but for us, it was a wonderful anniversary dinner with friends. The new restaurant is still intimate, gorgeous, just wonderful. The new menu items were wonderful as well. We take out-of-town visitors there when we want to impress them!
The new location is great. The good is as good as ever. One of our favorites.
Excellent service and food
Our favorite restaurant in Houston. Delicious food and excellent service. The sangria ain't bad either!
Great server and welcome. New location is lovely and food was great. A little put-off by “no-sharing” policy stated on menu. Would definitely go back.
We had to wait almost an hour, although we had reservations. The owner apologized, but we were hungry.
When we finally sat at the table we had to insist to the waiter to bring the menu card.
Dark and intimate dining - great for the date we were on. Only had time for a few apps and a bottle of wine but the server was great and all the food recommendations were fantastic. Chef Kitty came out and stopped by the table too! Will definitely be coming back!!
The food was cooked to perfection, the wine selection was excellent. Our only issue is the music. Why not spanish guitar or something in keeping with the countries you represent. Or classical. This is one of the few restaurants where one can carry on a conversation.
We love this place! The food was out-of-this-world fantastic. The service was impeccable. And such a nice touch to be greeted with 2 glasses of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Costa Brava is one of my very favorite places in Houston!
Excellent service (Anthony). Trout, soft shell crab and scallops great; beef filet tender, prepared perfectly and well accompanied but not a great piece of meat taste-wise; should have gotten the rib eye.
Spanish/Portuguese influence, including wines. Reminded me of being in Europe. Love, love the gazpacho and shrimp appetizer loaded with garlic. Definite jewel in Bellaire.
Food was great and service was good.
I will definitely recommend Costa Brava to my friends
First time at the new local and found it quite nice and great for conversation. The food was delicious! The service was excellent. Great wine list with a price range for all pockets. We had the grilled Spanish octopus for an appetizer and it was cooked to perfection. For main course my wife had the crispy Skuna Bay Salmon. It was served with a tasty cauliflower puree that complemented the Salmon very nicely. I had the roasted Veal tenderloin with an exotic mushroom risotto. The veal was tender and tasty. The risotto was to die for! The Emilio Moro Tempranillo Ribera de Duero went well with the meal and brought out the spices and flavor in our meal. For desert we had a very refreshing citrus and cinnamon rice pudding. If you are looking for great Spanish cosine, excellent service. a wonderful wine list the Costa Brava Bistro is the place to go! Highly recommend the restaurant!
One of the best in Houston. We have never been disappointed here after many visits.
Excellent restaurant, very good food.. The place is not big so it is more interesting. Lovely style. Very European.
Fantastic eatery! Its a shame Bellaire can't have more good restaurants like Costa Brava.
As always- the food was exceptional, the service excellent! Love the new space!
Second visit. Food always interesting. Noise level on this Friday vending was not conducive to relaxed dining. First visit on a Wednesday was better for sound level.
Waiter and new place was great!
The food here is excellent and innovative. It is expensive, but the ambiance is worth it.
Always a wonderful time from beginning to end.
