Pleasant first visit. The onion soup and house filet were very good (the house filet pretty heavy on the sauce). Bread pudding good as well. Attentive service from Sara.

Went for Sunday brunch. One of the three meals was outstanding. The other two were very lackluster. They were not particularly busy but each meal was a different temperature and two were over cooked but served cool. Very noisy. Disappointing for $160.

Beautifully restored old house with New Orleans jazz playing sets up a throwback experience in personalized, non-chain dining. Traditional menu with fresh ideas and updated presentations. Impeccable service, in house made desserts with interest touches, creative bar fare- what more could you want? Not outrageously expensive but most likely a special occasion place for most of us. Treat yourself and decide for yourself.

The service is always fabulous! The food is the very best of selection, freshness and taste.

The dining experience is normally perfect IF your table is in one of the smaller rooms on the original restaurant side. However, the add-on, beautifully decorated, red walled room is way noisy and impossible to carry on a nice, quiet conversation.

I hate to give a rating of lower than 5 because we love dining here. Perhaps the Friday night we dined Ilona a football weekend was unusually crowded but maybe the rooms acoustics could to tweaked to soften the noise.

Thank you!!

Yesterday we attended to celebrate a 40th birthday. Typically our experience is stellar at Christopher’s. However, our experience yesterday was less than satisfactory. 3 of the 4 people at our table ordered lobster tails and all three of them were over cooked. We brought it to the waiters attention and he said he could tell by looking at them they were over cooked and would bring it to the chefs attention. They comped is for all three of them. I ordered the snapper and it had bones in it. We ordered the house filet to go and asked for it to be gluten free. The order was not prepared gluten free. I was told they would sub the creamer spinach for sautéed spinach but received creamed spinach so I can’t eat it. It also included the fried crawfish tails that I also cannot consume.

My wife was 100% pleased; I less so. We have been coming to this restaurant for at least 15 years. Most recently for brunch (10/21/18). We both had the eggs benedict. My wife loved hers (along with a Caesar salad). My eggs, however, were overcooked (not runny as they should be) and the whole dish (rosemary potatoes -- ugh!) seemed somehow "tired." Indeed, for my taste, the whole menu is in need of a major update. Maybe that's why the restaurant was way less than half-full when we went at 1:00 p.m. on a beautiful Sunday. The waiter, however, was the best we have ever had there. In the past, 100% of the time, there was the "upsell" as soon as you sat down (Always: "Is this a special occasion?"). Happily not this time -- just a pleasant, efficient, non-aggressive waiter. He got a very good tip. Bottom-line: My wife loved her meal; I did not. I think Christopher's needs a new menu for brunch.

Overall excellent but not perfect. Rain and lower temperatures kept us all indoors. The service was excellent and pleasant. The decor sophisticated. The ambience kinetic. The complementary hors d'oeuvre and breads were outstanding. The room temperature was on the cool side. I'd recommend a sport coat for the gentlemen and a sweater for the ladies. The noise level was noticeable. I enjoyed the Mrs. Pham’s Vietnamese Egg Roll starter and later the Vegetable Plate main course all of which was tasty but crowded on the plate. Mine was a enjoyable experience. I'm sure to return.

this was recommended as on eof the best in Bryan. the ambiance was nice the staff very attentive and the request for an intimate table was very nice.
The food (lunch) left a lot to be desired. As a 40+ year food professional I was very disappointed and the value was not appropriate.
the house tapenade was very nice, the bread selection just average.
the caesar was 9.95 should have been 6.95. the carmelized bacon was good but the dressing and cheese were lacking especially for the price.
the snapper my quest ordered was said to be good but the presentation of seasonal vegetables of mashed potatoes and sweet potato appeared to be more to fill the plate than to compliment the fish which was crowded by these piles of starch.
the shrimp cream bisque was all cream and little if any shrimp flavor and no visible shrimp. the consistency was excellent but the lack of flavor and shrimp was very disappointing.
my main was the 29.95 6oz filet, a 'signature' dish ordered medium rare. It was med. rare in the interior but the exterior was so overdone that it was dry and burned to a crisp. the bed of spinach had little moisture and appeared to have been sitting under a heat lamp for some time. the 'shrimp' were tastelss over fried and scant. the seasonal vegetables were not crisp as oven roasted potatoes and gave all the appearance of having been prepped earlier in the day. I admit we were seated at the end of the lunch hour 1p with a cutoff of 2p but that shouldn't have mattered for a restuarant of this nature and reputation. the wine selection was broad and again, the staff was attentive but the kitchen needs help. certainly not where I would spend $135 again for lunch.

Food and atmosphere great! Noise level a little loud in large banquet room (high ceiling). Waiter not quite as focused and attentive this time. Waiter needs to cut the phase: “Are you enjoying all this great food and everything is just great ... I know you’re enjoying it”. He should be asking what they can do to better serve you and ask the guests about ‘quality’; not try and influence a positive response. However, he did provide a little restaurant history to our first time quests and make a nice wine suggestion. This guy just needs a little more professional training to come across sincere.

The service staff was amazing, as they always are at Christopher's. And the food was delightful, always something so new and savory, as well as items from the past (like the walnut apple salad) that are always done so very well. Presentation was just beautiful, and unique. My only complaint at all is that it can get quite loud in the space if someone doesn't know how to use an inside voice (and it seems some boisterous Ags came in from a football game), which put a damper on our quiet romantic dinner. Just an unfortunate quirk of the space not having good sound-dampening, I think. Next time we will maybe try not going on a football day. (I mean that's a problem you'd run into anywhere in this town, so no reflection on Christopher's.)

We visit this restaurant when we are in town. As usual the food and service were first class. Our only concern was that it was very noisy. We had a hard time hearing our server and each other. Before we had a table in one of the small rooms and the noise level was fine. This time we were in one of the large rooms.

This restaurant came highly recommended. It was a busy Friday night and we had reservations, were seated promptly. The waiter took our drink order and seemed to be in a rush to get our dinner selections. We had not been there before and wanted some time with the menu. In addition, we would have liked to perused over our drinks but they were delayed. He did give us some time after we made that request (twice). We had two seafood dishes which were excellent. Unfortunately the veal shank with papperadelle was disappointing; the meat was over cooked/well done and the pasta was very firm and clumped together .
Otherwise a nice meal.
