Real reviews from real guests, who really love us. A lot.

  • Love Loro. Inside and outside space is perfect for hanging out. Menu is very varied, offering something for everyone. You can get a more substantial meal, as well as tasty and fresh veggie dishes and salads. The hush puppies (corn fritters?) are heavenly. Try the cabbage salad, grilled snap peas, and sesame rice noodles. The salmon is cooked to perfection. Bavette steak is delicious as well.

  • Fusion food at it's finest! Everything we ordered was downright delicious. The crispy potatoes were so addicting! The pork belly and bavette were both tender and juicy! Their tomato & cucumber salad had cantaloupe topped with tajín and was very refreshing. Both the interior and exterior decor were beautiful. Highly recommend this restaurant for a date or casual friend hangout!

  • Just GO! Everything we tasted was so good! We even went back to get another order of their brisket! It was so tender, flavorful and well cooked. The pear salad with kale was so good! Who makes kale taste this good? Loro does! Not only is the food outstanding but so is their personnel. We had the pleasure of meeting Pamela as she was taking care of the area we were seated at. She made our experience even better by giving us extra tips on the times to go and what other items to try. The vibe reminds me of Tulum and the outdoor fans are perfect for this heat in houston.

  • I don't want to be dramatic, but this BBQ + Asian fusion changed my life. WOW! Go! Try one of everything!!!! This place has an amazing vibe, great indoor & outdoor seating. Plus complimentary valet parking!! Every single thing we ate was fantastic. Like so good. I will be DREAMING about the brisket for weeks. I had the mango sake slushee which was also delicious!
