The food was excellent, as always. Great place for get together of out of town family. Atmosphere is exciting but not too loud.
Amazing experience and food
One of my favorite restaurants in Houston. Love the food, the atmosphere and the best margaritas in town.
Armando's has been a favorite of mine since 1987! Great restaurant, food and service. We really enjoyed the back dining area as it is much easier to hear each others conversation. Wonderful time with family!
very Good food, great service but very noisy. luckily we got the booth
The nachos were a little greasy and had too much cheese but overall it was a very nice dining experience.
The twice refried beans were magical. I don’t like refried beans normally and I couldn’t stop eating them.
We've been going to Armando's since it opened decades ago on Shepherd, and generally like it. But this particular visit, it was crazy busy - loud, and not easy to talk to our friends. At least we were in a booth, which helped. I suspect because of the crowd, the service wasn't very attentive.
The Queso Flameado, one of the old standbys, did not disappoint our friends, who had not been there before. I got the chicken enchiladas. They were OK, but nothing special (especially for the price). I should have gotten the spinach enchiladas, as my husband did. The spinach is freshly sautéed. The sauce on top is an unnatural green, but it plus the almonds sprinkled on make for a really good dish. The beans are probably made with lard, they're so good - but worth every bite!
Simply the best there is.
We had a lovely dinner with their special Valentine’s Day menu. Our waiter made our meal even more enjoyable.
Just mediocre. Worst margaritas we’ve had in Houston and we’ve lived here for 15 years. Had really high expectations and was really disappointed. The service was very attentive but good and drinks- terrible.
Excellent food and service on Valentines Day with friends.
The service was great!! The food was delicious as well! We look forward to returning!
We are regulars at Armando's. This time, the restaurant was filled with large tables of big groups
and was so loud. Two of us ordered fish tacos with red snapper and sauce on the side. The came with a lot of sauce on them, and the fish was fishy. Once we flagged down our waiter he quickly
replaced our fish tacos with something else and was very apologetic about the problem. Everyone else enjoyed their food- shrimp and beef fajitas and a chicken dish. We will go back because of location, and it can be a fun evening.
Food, service, and drinks were great as always.
Great atmosphere ... beautiful people... come to party
Always a pleasure to come to Armandos. Food quality, service and atmosphere are excellent. I'm sort of a regular and I've never been disappointed.
We wanted a new place to try ahead of a movie at River Oaks Theatre and were not disappointed with Armondos. The service was very pleasant and attentive. The table setting was very crisp. Great food and all in all a wonderful place to have a quiet dinner or private party. Highly recommend.
Sat near the bar which was crowded and loud. Great service and food
I am not a fan of refried beans, but theirs....YUM!!
Overall very good experience. Very good food and service by wait staff. One of the hostesses was less than friendly. Same hostess, same experience as last time.
We were there early on Saturday. So quiet, very relaxing. Beautiful dining room. The food was excellent. Service was friendly but not terribly prompt. We will definitely return.
Armando's is a long-time favorite and the food is always excellent!
Never disappointed. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone looking for a little more than just a Mexican restaurant.
Food is always great. Service was only adequate, and certainly nothing notable.
Great Mexican at Armando’s!
Outstanding food, service and ambiance. Armando’s consistently delivers an overall great experience. Can’t wait for Armando’s new restaurants in Round Top!
our waiter was incredibly rude and the service was horrible. we waited to get menus for 30 minutes and had to ask the manager for them eventually. the drinks and food was way overpriced and not worth it.
As always the food was great. We always go to Armando’s on Christmas Eve.
Food was really good and service was very good. The restaurant was very noisy but it was a Saturday night before Christmas. Would definitely go back.
Fantastic upscale tex/mex. Atmosphere, service, and food all top notch. A River Oaks must dine place.
Great food, great atmosphere! Had a terrific meal and will come back again.
I always love Armando's. The food is great and there is a good variety for everybody. Whether you want a TexMex dinner or a more traditional dinner, it is available. The refried beans are the best ever!
Delicious as always!
Love this place. Eat here often and also use their catering department for events.
Armando's is always great! We love it! Staff is great and the food is great!
I have been going to Armandos for years. My visit this time was disappointing. The redfish was way too garlicky, the beans oily and the service was very slow. We had a hard time getting our drink order placed as well as our order. I am hoping it was just an off night.
Always a great place!
We brought my daughter for her birthday. We'd indicated on the reservation that we were there to celebrate a birthday, and they brought her cake with a sparkler, unannounced. She was entranced. Before the cake, we mainly ate a lot of appetizers - shrimp cocktail (really more like ceviche, with nicely seasoned red sauce and lots of avocados), queso, and steak nachos. Theirs are some of the best nachos anywhere; the steak is definitely higher quality than the usual fajita meat. The chips are also some of the best - thick and crispy, served with a warm (temperature) tomato sauce. And the margaritas are excellent - lots of choices.
We shared some of the food, and did not run up an especially big tab, but the service was always thoughtful.
