Fantastic seafood. WORST PRIME RIB I HAVE EVER HAD. The entire thing was encased in sinew. Our server did not know the difference between marbling and inedible sinew. The cold Au Jus was served over the meat, not as a side. The horseradish was a cream blob that the meat was placed on top of, if you want it or not. It was my 25th anniversary and I was trying not to upset my wife so I ate it, and then was ill later. Stick with the sea food because they do not have a clue about beef.

My family and I decided to go to this restaurant due to the recommendation of our ferry operator. I was in the mood for a hearty steak. It was advised to me that Boudros Bistro on the River had an excellent blackened prime rib. Needless to say I was intrigued. When we approached the entrance we were greeted outside by the hostess who offered indoor or outdoor seating. We chose to dine inside.
The ambience inside had a very European rustic feel. It kind of reminded me of a wine cellar. I?d definitely keep it in mind for a romantic night out.
We ordered the guacamole. It was prepared fresh in front of us by our waiter. Originally, I thought of it as just another novelty, but I had to say it did add to the dining experience. To my surprise again, I have to say I was impressed. Even if you don?t like guacamole, which I didn?t, you?ve just got to try theirs. It?s really that good.
Now for the main course, my blackened prime rib. I have to say I wasn?t really impressed. It wasn?t bad, but certainly not as memorable as the guacamole. Maybe it was because of the high expectation that was already set out there by our ferry operator, but I wasn?t kind of let down.
All and all, I?d still recommend Boudros Bistro on the River. I?d probably try a different main dish next time, but would definitely return.

Wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Boudros on the Riverwalk. They have a very interesting menu with good variety in tastes and price. The Black Angus Filet Mignon was the best I've had on the Riverwalk yet. I could almost cut it with my fork. Cooked to order, medium/rare, it was tasty and the veggies were great too. Bride had the Seared White Fin Tuna. It was so tender and soft, it almost melted in your mouth. The way it was prepared made it especially tasty as well. We had the Guacamole, which is made fresh table side, as an appetizer and it was delicious too. The service was efficient, courteous and attentive without being over the top. We had reservations on a Monday night, and it is certainly a good idea at a popular restaurant like this. It is not cheap but you don't go for your lungs either. The wine selections are interesting as are the desserts. The only draw back to the entire experience, we should have sat outside at Riverside. It gets a little noisy inside. Opt for that, weather permitting.
My wife and I spent a wonderful anniversary on the river on a Saturday evening back in mid April. I knew we would have to wait since the place is not very big. The wait was only an hour so we just went to another restaurant just down the way and had drinks till our hour was up. He had the guacamole for two to start off with with a few beers. They both were great!.. beers were ice cold and we could not stop eating the guacamole Our waittress was very pleasent had given us just enough attention to make sure our drinks were never empty. We had the blackened prime rib which was very tasty and cooked just right. I would reccommend Boudro's to anyone over one of the chain steak restaurants you can go to one of those next time your are in Arlington or Waco.

I dont know, I guess I was just expecting more. It was nothing to write home about. First, they could not find my reservation. It was our anniversary and I stated that when I made it. To their credit they sat us in about 5 min. The service was just ok. It better be good for the price you pay though. But it wasnt outstanding.
We ordered drinks and appitizers, they came, we are STILL holding our menus! The table they sat us at was tiny and for 2, which is fine, but the menus covered the table! So we have our salads in front of us, holding our menus, trying to eat. FINALLY the waitress came to take the menus and take our dinner order! She came by a couple of times and our empty cocktail glasses were present but never asked if we wanted another, nor took the empty glasses away!
I ordered the Big Tails Little Tails. It was way too salty! The risotto was overcooked and it was like they just added red chile pepper in everything and called it southwestern. My husband ordered the crab enchiladas, that again had too much red chilie pepper and was too salty. And I like salt!
It was LOUD...not very romantic, but thats ok cause that is not the waitstaff's or cook's fault. Like I said, it was mediocore. There are soooo many other places to eat than this place.
