This was our first visit to America's since they moved from Post Oak. The first thing you can't help but notice is the decor. It's obvious they spent some big bucks decorating. Even the women's restroom is like entering a night club. The food and service were great. We had the empanadas & I had the salmon which was cooked... More

Another Houston Restaurant Week Lunch, we went for the diner menu which was recommended, food was good although I was a little concerned at the tenderising used on the steak. The decor is interesting and worth the explanation from staff.

Two couples went for dinner on Sunday night after flight back to Houston. Service was great and excellent suggestion on wine pairing-- Malbec was great with the steak. Empanadas were very good - both beef and chicken. We had two different steak dishes and Mahi Mahi with Shrimp - all were delicious. A good reminder to get out to different... More

Paella for two was excellent, as were the desserts. The service was good and attentive without being overbearing. Sauces and lamb lollipops were very good. Definitely above average for Houston.

A really enjoyable dining experience here with a lovely bar to have a pre-meal drink. They have the best Plantains around! A great diverse and unique menu which is all reasonably priced. We've been here several times and never been disappointed. Really great service too with knowledgeable servers. We'll be back!

If it hadn't been for the menu that was confusing as to the "restaurant week" vs dinner, and the fact that the waiter said dessert was included and it wasn't, I would have given it a five start rating. The waiter was extremely apologetic but our $20 each meal turned into a $37 each meal as my friend ordered a... More

The Cordua family continue to provide outstanding Latino cuisine maintaining all their specialities such as plantains with signature dips and of course the butterflied steak.

There are times when you feel the restaurant scene is just missing something...like when you enter a new place and it looks the same as a restaurant you frequented some time ago. This place is not one of those restaurants! The interior furnishings and graphics are truely breathtaking and for once, the food matches the scenery. One of my biggest... More

We were visiting Houston and loved this food. Very different from Florida's Sunday brunches . The restaurant decoration gives an enchanting atmosphere. We went with 3 grandchildren ages 7 to 10. They loved it and we loved the children"s price.

Thank Daisy L
