Located centrally in Houston's River Oaks district, ARMANDOS Mexican Restaurant engulfs you in an environment reminiscent of early 20th century Mexico City fine dining. Come and experience what it was like in Spanish & French colonial Mexico and dine on Armando’s family recipes. With its goldenrod and wood-paneled walls, intimate lighting, and a serendipitous selection of grand mirrors, Armandos provides a wonderful backdrop for sharing a wonderful evening with one or many.

This time I gave it 4 stars due to the noise level. Was it overly LOUD due to the majority of 20-30 year olds dining in Armando’s. I would say yes as I understand Thursdays are dance night and it was a livelier crowd than usual. TIP: Don’t go on Thursdays unless you really DONT want to hear the people you’re with.

To of the line taste. Only problems, our server did not check by with us much. Twice had to flag him down to get tea and once for more sauce for the chips. Been here lots of time, food as good as always but the service is not the kind we normally get at Armandos. Still will go back for food and hopefully a different server.

The food was excellent. However, our waiter would disappear for extended periods of time (it was NOT a busy night) and we would have to prevail on others when we needed something. We finally got him to drop off some dessert menus but then he never came back to take our orders. We had to stop a waiter from another section to take our order. We've had other service issues at this restaurant - cocktails arriving after dinner was well underway and appetizers arriving after we had finished our main meal. The food, however, has always been very good.

Yep t has a great upscale vibe. Not the restaurants fault but there was an obnoxiously loud table with a couple of cacklers next to where we were originally seated. I could not hear my date over their indifferent behavior. Yes, I think they should have a good time but it moved well into rude. The host was able to move us after a bit of thought.

I had the Gulf Fish and distinctly remember thinking "this can't be it." The flavor was good the portion was small and the tortillas were excellent. The drinks were well made but the services was quite bad. The server was not very attentive.

We said, “no, we had reserved a table for 3 and that was not our group.” So he checked the reservation list again and confirmed our reservation and led us to a booth. As the two of us who had arrived began to sit down, our third friend called to us. She was sitting at another booth. Clearly, the man had not paid much attention to our reservation or to the first person who had already arrived. It did not seem very professional at all. We moved ourselves to the other location and finally were able to enjoy the evening. The food was great! The restaurant was incredibly loud and we were all shouting at one another to be heard. Clearly, everyone was in a festive mood.
