    Everything we ordered was excellent -- pisco sour, beef empanadas, corn poblano soup, churrasco (argentino), and chocolate delirium for dessert. The service was very attentive. I was surprised there were so few patrons. This place is great!

    The ceviche was really excellent and a good value. The Churrasco steak was a disappointment, certainly not as succulent - a tad dry (we asked for medium rare) and a bit tough - as we remember and definitely very expensive. We just remember being so impressed by the Churrasco cut, but this was nothing special. The alfajores were to die for. Overall we thought it was not up to what we expected from our past experiences. Oh, and we were disappointed that the only frozen margarita was strawberry.

    My issue is with Open Table not Churrascos. I made a reservation for 12:00 noon on Saturday. When I arrived, the restaurant hours indicated that they do not open until 2:00 pm. Please update your database.

    Churrascos has managed to maintain its quality over many years, it’s a place where no matter what you order, it will be very tasty, nicely presented and very well executed. And of course, no steakhouse around, no matter how fancy or expensive it is, has managed to deliver the exquisite flavor profile of the Churrasco steak. Hands down, the tastiest steak around

    Food was very good as usual. We had a group of 11 celebrating a birthday. Started at six PM. The restaurant was less than half full but the noise level was HIGH coming primarily from another large group seated nearby. We will definitely be back

    The beef and the empanadas were fabulous. My wife had the scallops and she sent them back. The Tres leches cake was the best I’ve ever had. Solid food but ambiance is somewhat sterile.

    Excellent food, steaks were delicious — service was good, manager came to visit our table and was super nice and friendly. Lighting was a little too bright for the restaurant’s quality and everything else hitting high marks. That’s the only thing, slightly dimmer, warmer lighting would really make this beyond exceptional.

    Churrascos has been one of my very favorite Houston restaurants for many years. We no longer live in Houston but chose to visit this old favorite Saturday night. Unfortunately the food was not nearly as good as I remembered, the lack of attention to detail was obvious, and my very favorite “pollo encamisado” was not worth the $31 price point. Some of the special touches that we remembered were missing. I want the old Churrascos!

    The place was dead! Do people in River Oaks stay in on Tuesday nights? But the atmosphere and look of the restaurant was not nice at all. I’m used to the one in Sugarland which looks up to date and amazing. I will say the food was still delicious! But I felt like I was dining in a restaurant that is going to close any day now. :(

    Enjoyed a wonderful birthday celebration and dinner Sunday night. Place was not crowded so it was nice and quiet. Ideal for carrying on a conversation. I had there marinated spareribs that fell off the bone and we’re covered with a delicious gravy. My friend had one of their specialty chicken dishes, and really enjoyed it. And of course the meal started with plantains and delicious dipping sauces.  tops off the meal with their famous Tres leches. Our waiter couldn’t have been more attentive. We will definitely go back..
