I found this gem via the reviews and worked out perfect that it was en route from business meetings to hotel afterwards. The family business shows attentive service and exceptional quality of food. House made chimchuri was even better than my wife's (which says a LOT) and I couldn't get enough of it with my ribs, veggies and fresh bread.... More

Great food & wine. Relaxed and casual setting. Owner operated; great service. They care about you as their customer. What else - oh yeah, very reasonable price. Will come back as often as I can.

As others have said don 't let the outward appearance if strip center fool you. Food and inside of restaurant very nice, food is great, service is great, maybe a bit pricey but no complaints.

We did not know what to expect and we're pleasantly surprised. It is in a very plain strip mall that doesn't look like much but once inside the dinning room is very nice. We took our waiters suggestions on the wine selection and entrees. The food was different and enjoyable.

You will not be disappointed. If you clicked on this restaurant to read reviews, you are at least interested and you should act on the impulse!! My wife and I ate here on the hopes it would be a nice get away for an hour or so and were impressed with the entire experience. The server was very attentive and... More

My husband and I ate here last night and every bit of the experience was excellent! It is very small and in a strip mall, but don't let that mislead you. It was a Saturday night and they had a nice gentleman in the back singing. Very nice ambiance! The waitstaff was excellent, more than one stopped to check on... More

Saldivia's receives a rare 5 star review on the first visit. First the basics: adequate parking is available in the mall area. Parking is well lit. No Smoking. Clean Restaurant and clean bathrooms. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Second the food. Well presented Meat dishes that sizzle and dazzle with different textures, spices and tastes. Appetizer soups of Lentil looked... More

My wife and I were in Houston for our anniversary. My wife was hesitant before I took her to Saldivia's but not any more. Her dish was the Milanese Capri and she loved it. I had the grilled short rib and it was awesome. The dessert Tres Leches was to die for. The owner, Gus, even came out to give... More
