Server was FANTASTIC!!! The restaurant is dark, romantic and very relaxing. In scary times like this, they were sitting tables apart from one another. Great dinner for my daughters 15th birthday!
We were seated in the bar area which was a disappointment. The patrons were loud and the service was not very good. This was our first "not so great" experience at Armandos. The food was great as always. I highly recommend Armandos but if you want good service and little more tame crowd, don't sit in the bar area.
Everything was amazing from the food to the service to the drinks - that’s why I keep coming back. Love the red salsa and the king margarita! Just beware that it’s hard to get a reservation on a Thursday so you’ll need to book in advance. I booked 3 weeks in advance and when we got to the restaurant the hostess told us we had to vacate the table in two hours. This really caught me off guard and I didn’t make the reservation to be rushed. If you need the table in two hours then you need to say that at the booking not when you get to the restaurant. We planned to have drinks, eat, and maybe dance. You can’t do that in two hours. We spoke to the manager and end up staying past two hours but what a crazy business practice to tell guests they need to be gone within a specific time frame when they get to the restaurant.
Waiter got food and drink orders wrong. Table of 6 children seated nearby were disruptive and noisy. Charged $6 for each glass of plain lemonade--$18 for 3 glasses. Served margarita in a martini glass.
Couldn't find waiter for table service thru the evening. Bad table and poor wait staff.
We had a very good dinner experience. We were seated immediately and the service was very good. The food was excellent.
Very disappointed. Food bland with no taste and poorly prepared. Service was not up to par. Top shelf margaritas over priced and not worth the price. Carnitas tacos are an insult to Mexican cuisine. It is actually pulled pork inside a flour tortilla that gave me heartburn. Pulled pork much better and cheaper at Rudy’s. Not authentic Mexican and not even Tex Mex. The last time I dinned at Armandos was when it was at Shepherd. Since I am now a senior citizen this will be my last. Fish tacos disappointing too. Does not compare to Hugo’s or Pico’s. Made a bad choice but now I know.
Gave us a great booth!! Thanks!!!!
Service was VERY slow. We couldn’t even find our waiter for 15 min when ready to leave.
Our reservation was at 8:00 pm but we didn’t get seated to almost 9:00pm. 😫
The place is super nice. I was expecting the food to be better. Not bad for a date night
Food and service was impeccable. Love this place.
Great meal with a friend for her birthday. Waiter was so attentive but not intrusive. Great vibe in the restaurant for a Sunday night, especially on "Oscars" night. Hadn't been in a while but always order the flameado with chorizo. Been having that since the old days when Armando's was on So. Shepherd in the old green house. Ahhh, the memories.
Excellent food and service
We were engaged at the old Armandos 30 years ago. We came back for our anniversary. Food is still great. Lump crab enchiladas with lobster sauce. Very good. Don't know where else you would get it!
Great as usual.
Restaurant is very noisy! Salsa had no spice to it at all. Food was fair.
Always perfect! Always!
We were there to celebrate a birthday. Our margaritas were the worst we’ve had in a while and we tried several different ones. Basically no alcohol, too much ice, and not even full pours. We ordered 14 drinks and walked out sober. Server was sweet. Food was good. But won’t go back because of the drinks.
We are regulars and love Armandos. But service was unusually slow Friday.
I love this place! Discovered this place in the 1980's when they were in their old location on Shepherd. Great margaritas, great good and great service. They have the BEST refried beans too. I ordered tacos al carbon on this last visit and it was perfect as usual.
Great evening with my husband. Grateful for Jesus getting us a wonderful table. Excellent service and delicious food. Thanks!!
Food is superb. Best beans in town. Service good. Need a drink order up front though. Has been a local gem for a long time.
Great experience !!!
Good standard Tex Mex food. Better than average fajitas and natchos. Service was slow but in fairness they were moderately busy. Parking is plentiful.
Family in town and watching the Titans v’s Patriots game, the hostess got us the best table in the house, the round one in the bar, and it was great, just loud! Suggest closed captioning for the TVs during sports games! All else was great.
Ambience & cocktails were the highlight! Excellent service
Armandos is our Christmas Eve dinner tradition. Food and service are always amazing!
Great food and great service! Delicious
We always enjoy Armando's. They have a wide variety of food, not just Tex-Mex.
Armando’s is our favorite neigborhood go to for delicious high quality mexican food and cocktails, warm comfortable yet lively atmosphere and wonderful service.
Armando's provides delicious food in an inviting atmosphere. The redfish special was prepared with beautiful grilled vegetables and the whole fish was served with a spicy tomato and olive topping. The presentation of the whole fish was appetizing and delicious.
The food was excellent as usual. Service was good until the end. We had to hunt down the waiter after waiting over 10 minutes for our check after the table had been cleared. We then wound up taking the check to the hostess, since the waiter again did a vanishing act.
Party of 7.
Let me push reservation back 30 min on the day of the reservation which was super helpful.
They should really pay for valet parking though.
Loved it! Great service. Delicious food.
As usual, food was good and service excellent!
Always delicious, best margaritas and queso flameado in town!
What a fantastic meal! All four of us had different entres and shared. What a great plan. Naturally, we started with margaritas and the quest flameado!
Excellent food - good service - noisy
Armando's is one of the best restaurants in the Houston area. Highly recommend dining there if you are going for dinner for two or have a large party. Everything was perfect, food & service hitting on high levels.
