We have Houstonians who invited us to brunch this last Sunday. The large windows overlooking the gray river allowed the cool outside air to chill the restaurant. The buffet was well stocked and the french toast and brisket were delicious. The cold table had shrimp, smoked salmon, salads and a meager fruit palate. We've been to more sumptuous feasts but...

Overall the food is always about an 8 out of 10 and am ok with that. Drinks/wine is 9. Sat at end of bar facing kitchen with two friends. Seating good, bartender a 10 on promptness and overall attentiveness. Temperature was perfect. My only RECURRING complaint is the loud chatter by waitstaff at kitchen end of the bar. Actually had...

I ate here with a large group of ladies that I met at a training we were all attending in Houston. We all ordered different meals and wines and no one was disappointed. I had the best chicken fried steak of my life! Judging from the appearance of this restaurant, I expected the prices to be high. On the contrary,... More

Raffas is located on the water in Kingwood. It is a family owned resaurant and is their second restaurant in this area. Raffas' food is delicious with specials nightly. For a nice evening out during the week, you can't beat Wednesdays half priced wine bottles. Meet friends at the bar or for an amazing dinner. If you don't finish the... More

Had a very enjoyable lunch at Raffa's Waterfront Grill. The latest visit was our second meal there and both visits were very pleasant. Food is good and the menu is fairly broad. This is a nice dining option in Kingwood.

This evening was my first weekday dinner at Raffa's Waterfront Grill. The shrimp scampi was excellent and the wine selection was generous. I must commend our waiter and chef on duty. We prematurely ordered dinner for a friend who was stuck in traffic. They replaced her meal when she arrived so that it would be fresh. Job well done!

We were in riding gear & they graciously seated us. Great service, wonderful food (scallops were perfectly prepared) and wine list. We will be revisiting to try the rest of the menu!
