Had the boneless short ribs. They were fantastic! The grilled vegetables were outstanding as well. Must like garlic to eat here. I will definitely return.

Glad this was the first restaurant to head to after landing into Houston. My family came for dinner and even though I made reservations, we were early so we were quickly seated. Since we were 1 of 2 tables occupied, our server Guallo was super attentive. Even the chef himself came to chat with us. Lovely. Food was phenomenon! My... More

My husband ordered take out for his 85 year old South American Mother. His eyes were bigger than his stomach. He ordered melanasa, steak and empanadas. Plantains and chimachuri were included. Each meal was perfect for a very hungry man. The food was delicious. My mother in law loved it! We had the flan and it was a creamy concoction,... More

Not a spectacular location, but don't let the outside looks fool you as you will experience a very nice meal at Saldivia's. Very friendly service. All of our meals were prepared just as we requested and the quality was great. This included our salads, steak and chicken meals. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely return when we're in the... More

Really nice restaurant in the Westchase area. Its located in the corner of a shopping center. The interior is really nice and inviting. I went for lunch so the atmosphere was quiet. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was great.

I've only been to Saldivia's during lunch on weekdays since their lunch menu is quite affordable. For $10, you get a salad and entree which is generally good, but can get tiresome given that they use the same/similar seasoning on all their entrees. I've had their boneless beef short ribs, grilled pork chops and grilled beef kabobs on several different... More

My friends were traveling to visit Houston for the day and got hungry right after lunch time. So I searched the Internet for great spots in the area coming down Sam Houston Parkway, Saldivia's South American Grill was a recommended choice. We entered the restaurant and were quickly seated. We enjoyed watching futbol on the large screen monitor. For starters,... More

We had a group of 22. We love the new location - the décor was soothing, the service was impeccable, the food choices were more extensive than other reviews indicated. We had a vegetarian in our group who had no problem making her choices. It isn't easy to tend to the desires of a large group requesting individual tickets, but... More

appetizers were OK, meal OK, desert OK. Nothing to really brag about but it seems it has a great rating on Trip A. Food was in general OK, price a little in the high end.
