They were very helpful with our reservation when I accidentally cancelled it after having it for months. We loved the restaurant. Our server was wonderful! Restaurant was beautiful. Wish weather had been better to sit outside. Overall it was a wonderful experience to celebrate our 2 daughters' birthdays on our visit. Did not know pancakes would be so huge! Little disappointed in bacon & the farm breakfast, didn't seem to have enough to merit highest price. Again, beautiful place to share a meal with extremely nice, helpful, excellent service. Glad we got to share the experience with our daughters & their maternal grandparents.

The steaks were cooked to the correct temperature. The appetizers and sides were very good, as well. Service was excellent, until the later reservations began to arrive, at that point our party (4 individuals), was all but ignored. We were going to order dessert. However, after not seeing our server for over 15 minutes, we decided against it, paid, and moved along. Overall, good meal...toss up on whether or not we will return.

My husband and I treated a friend and wife to brunch for his retirement celebration Sunday. We began with a pitcher of bellinis which probably made five glasses. Each glass displayed a sliced strawberry. The buffet offered breakfast and lunch choices from custom made crepes to oysters on the half shell, beef tenderloin, Eggs Benedict, the best beef short ribs ever, chicken parmesan, amazing butternut squash and much more. Also wonderful salads and incredible desserts! The service was excellent, and we look forward to returning!!

The food and cocktails were very good, the ambiance was upscale casual and nice, and the service was EXCELLENT. We were seated next to the small stage, and when the live music started (a female vocalist playing an acoustic guitar), it got a little hard to hear the others in our party of four. I'd recommend requesting a table further from the stage.

About the restaurant
An upscale casual Italian Steakhouse in the middle of downtown Waco! Our sister restaurant opened in the early 2000's in Temple and 20 years later we are ready to come and serve the wonderful people of Waco. A large dinning room and patio paired with our private dinning room gives us plenty of space to accompany you and any guest.

Christopher’s has never disappointed. I had the chef’s recommendation. The grilled pork chop and the vegetable sides were delectable. The wine list offers choices that enhance the dining experience. College Station and Bryan are fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber in their community.
