I returned to this restaurant and this time the meat was tender. So, 5 stars. All the other food we ordered was very good.

A beautiful south american restaurant hidden from the streetlights. Once you find it you will be delighted by an intriguing menu and friendly staff. Asado, churrasco, chorizo and costilla de cerdo are a must! This my favorite place for lunch during the week.

This has to be one of Houston's best restaurants. We enjoyed it very much. The service was first-class. The food was, as I already said, eccellentissima. .

Doesn't look much from outside but great place to eat. Great steak and shrimp plus a surprisingly good veggie option. No childrens menu but they split a main dish. Great service and authentic feel.

I had the best steak at a price less than half of that of a regular Steak House. Perfectly done to my taste, with the fantastic "chimichurri" that the Saldivias prepare themselves from a secret recipe. It was accompanied by generous servings of vegetables and...More

Very nice decor. Meat (no less short rib) is heavenly. Tender and full of flavor. Perfectly grilled vegetables finish up th main course. Even the warm rolls are delicious. Great service and very reasonable priced.

If you are into lovely beef This uraguayan restaurant is it. Skip the starters and go straight for the tender beef along with a good glass of wine

For apps, we had the empanadas. Good but I prefer Chilean ones. For the main course, we ordered the Parrilada Completa. Great cuts of meat and the sweetbreads were some of the best I've tasted. No funkyness and nice crunch. Very reasonably priced as well....More

Nice place to go with family or friends. I was there with my family. As appetizer we ordered the Provoleta that normally is an aged Mozzarella. Unfortunately I think they serve us Mozzarella or a very young Provoleta. I was very disappointed. As main dish...More

Response from csaldivia | Property representative |
Saldivia's has many great wines at affordable prices, we pride ourselves on choosing wines that pair with our food. Therefore we do not allow customers to bring their own wine. Thank you for the question.

Not sure. When we made our reservations we called and the owner picked up quickly enough. However, it's a while ago, several months.
