“Our Favorite Restaurant In Houston!”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

My wife and I travel extensively throughout the world and enjoy all types of restaruants. We live in the far northern edges of Houston and this is our Houston "go to" restaurant. Johann and Maria are celebrating their 11th anniversary. This is the highest Zagat rated restaurant in Houston. We love the European food...the staff.....the whole experience. There are daily lunch and business lunch specials and monthly wine dinners. DO NOT miss out on this wonderful restaurant!

“Food is art at this restaurant”
Reviewed June 3, 2011

Food was great, chef does not just cook but CREATES food.
He often comes to your table and chat about the food. Tried the asparagus soup and was amazing, as was the Kobe beef !

“This is one of the best restaurants in...”
Reviewed April 1, 2010

This is one of the best restaurants in Houston if not the best. The menu changes with the seasons and always has fresh items. Their specials are incredible. They have fish from New Zeland, Hawaii, Alaska or South America. Their Kobe beef is so tasty...
And everything is served in such a creative way. Every dish looks like a work of art.
The waiters are ever so careful and pay so much attention.
Cannot recommend this more warmly. I've been all over the world, but it's always a pleasure to come back to Charivari.

“Five Star Dining in Houston with the tastes of Europe”
Reviewed January 30, 2010

The resturant has wonderful atmosphere. I have had dinner there numerous times and never was disappointed. The wait staff pays attention to every customer and when you are lucky you can rub elbows with the Chef. Parking is friendly and this is a plus since it is in Midtown.
