We made a reservation for thanksgiving lunch. When we showed up we were seated immediately and asked if we wanted to order their Thanksgiving buffet. While we were thinking about it, they said that they had no other options available. We said we were okay with the buffet and the waiter asked for our salad order. We had to wait... More

My Fiance and I had stumbled across this beautiful bistro when staying in Waco. No wonder it is ranked so highly on review sites. The ambiance was great... where you could be casual but feel like you were in a trendy big city establishment. We sat at the bar and were instantly blown away with the professionalism displayed by the... More

Only had drinks in this colorful, modern decor bar inside the Indigo hotel. Prices were high. Drinks were average.

This place used to be so amazing. The Chicken Montelongo was amazing when they opened. Tender chicken, crepe, amazing mushroom sauce......alas.....now quality, seasoning, and dishes are not very good. If is a shame as this used to be a great place for something different. Hotel Indigo is still a great hotel if you need a room.

Like gourmet chicken with gourmet gravy on gourmet potatoes. I had the chop house salad with extra applewood bacon. Yikes!!! So good!! But the main thing I want to say is that it's... More

In Waco for an annual show, and looking for a nice upscale place for dinner...saw some decent reviews for Brazos (don't recall where, but I think it was Google)...wow...GREAT menu, SUPER service, EXCELLENT wine list..all in all, 5/5.
