“Gourmet Food and Attentive Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We dined with friends last weekend following the Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival in Bryan. We had a great experience at Christopher's! The atmosphere was very warm and homey, and the staff friendly and attentive. And, then there was the food ... which was truly excellent! We especially enjoyed the Almond Baked Brie ... enough for two to share for an appetizer. My wife's Delmonico Steak and my Pastramied Steelhead Salmon were both perfectly prepared. We capped dinner off with a gluten free chocolate-on-chocolate cake ... again, plenty generous enough for two to share. We greatly appreciated the "no hurry" service which was just perfect for an evening of chatting with good friends. Overall, a very enjoyable experience!

“Excellent In Every Way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Even though I live away from B/CS, I have dined at Christopher's since it opened many years ago. And I can say with no hesitation, that the quality of food, level of service and atmosphere are still fresh, innovative and outstanding. I recently ate lunch there and it could not have been better. Our waiter, Dalton, was most helpful and knowledgable. The food was excellent, as always. Christopher's is on par with any upscale Houston restaurant for service, food and ambience. You will encounter exceptional service, enjoy a most delicious meal, all in a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. They're the best and that's why they still deliver. Give them a try and ask for Dalton.

“Top Restaurant in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is the place to go for a very good, very special dinner, or lunch with business colleagues. Food and wine are superb.

“Thoroughly Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

My wife and I dine at Christopher's several times a year; in addition, we visit this high end restaurant with friends on special occasions. On our most recent visit, where we celebrated my wife's birthday, my wife had the bacon wrapped salmon and I had a New York strip steak, both of which were prepared to perfection. In addition, the desserts were excellent. One thing I particularly like about Christopher's is their willingness to adjust menu items to accommodate individual tastes. Christopher's has an excellent wine list and an impressive selection of scotch. As usual, the service was friendly, efficient, and accommodating. We will return to this fine restaurant. Reservations are recommended; they may be made by calling the restaurant or online.

“Decor & menu desperately need updating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Christopher's had its glory day, but sadly, that time has now passed. The decor is out-dated and because of it, the ambience tends to be a bit depressing. The menu could also use updating. Even the most famous classically-inspired menus are revamped to capture modern elements, trends and epicurean interests. The quality of food has become less predictable and now, the quality of the meal is hit or miss. (The service however has remained consistently impeccable). Years ago, this was the best in the area, but now, it feels like a place where you take your grandparents for brunch or attend a corporate dinner because the food and drinks are free. This may have the tablecloths and a sommelier, but at the end of the day, the menu and ambience are outdated are not conducive to a memorable fine- dining experience.
