    I took my mother here for lunch for her 83rd birthday. There were 8 in our party and we were quickly seated. The food was just as we had remembered from only coming here on very special occasions throughout our lives. Mom said she hadn't been there in 30 years. Our favorite item was the fried shrimp - good size and not more batter than shrimp - and actually tasted like shrimp. My son got the lobster thermidor, thinking it was a lobster tail with the sauce to dip in, but it turned out to be lobster bites in a bowl of cheesy soup - Not worth the $45 price tag by any stretch of the imagination. The service was wonderful and a good time was had by all.

    How has Christie's survived without renovating/updating it's restaurant? So ugly & cheap!! I was expecting so much more. The food however, was incredibly delicious!! Perfect flavor to steak & the fried shrimp were light & melted in my mouth. Bring the decor & ambiance up to par & you'll have a line around the block!

    I have passed this restaurant for years and heard that there fried shrimp was to die for. The shrimp and the catfish were not tasty and the portions were small. I also found their tartar sauce not to be pleasing. The gumbo was average , but the waitstaff was good.

    I'm a bit ashamed to say I lived in the area and had eaten at every place around Christies but never even noticed the restaurant sitting there. For Houston restaurant week I decided to check it out and was so pleased. Very quiet dimly lit restaurant with great service and on top of that the food is good as well! I will surely recommend the restaurant to friends and family and try it again in the future.

    Had the restaurant week menu. The gumbo I had for the 1st course was a bit disappointing - I have had the real deal in N'Orleans but the Salmon Royale and Chocolate Mousse cake made up for it. Service was comme-ci, comme-ca. Seemed like you had to be a regular to have faster, friendlier service.

    I've lived in Houston all my life (let's just say that's over 50 years) and I've driven past Christie's on Westheimer for the last 45+ years. I had never eaten there before last weekend. The décor (recently renovated) is uncluttered but historic pictures of downtown Houston as well as other areas filled the walls. This is a great place for families. The food is good. Nothing fancy, just reliably good, standard gulf coast seafood dishes. Prices are very reasonable and you can actually have conversations it is so quiet. The service is outstanding and one of our party said they had never had a better dirty martini.

    If you are ever in the Galleria area or just outside the Loop do not miss this place! I have been going there for over 20 years and my inlaws who live in Houston since they can even remember! Flounder and Snapper from the Gulf are so fresh and delicious..the oysters and shrimp are a great staple too!

    I enjoy lunch here every month or so. The freshness of the fish is awesome! My favorite is the red snapper blackened with the Opelousas sauce over it. There is more of an older crowd here, but I dont mind since it is close to work and delicious! Service is always great, as well! The gumbo needs a little more heat and flavor profile, but it isnt bad.

    They have great Greek salads & fantastic fried shrimp. The quality is consistently excellent over they years. So when we go - we are the youngest ones in the room. But they have been here longer than 95% of the places in Houston - that says a lot. Their other seafood & even steaks are good - but we still always order 12 fried shrimp!! The waiter & waitresses are attentive - Try it -

    Dined on 3/3/2014
    It was our first time to dine at Christie's. I think the fact that it is the oldest seafood restaturant in Houston is over-rated. We found the menu choices limited, especially on the seafood section. They don't serve "live" lobster??? Overall, we were a little bit disappointed considering it was our first time, and we invited a friend from Paris, France who was looking forward to having a great seafood dinner. Well, at least we tried. Thanks.

    Three of us (+ 1) have been celebrating our birthdays for almost 30 years. Each year, we have picked a different restaurant and cuisine. Two of us used to frequent Christie's in The Medical Center. I ate at the Westheimer location about 29 years ago on another occasion. Our table awaited us, the waiter was professional, friendly and accommodating, and the food was absolutely delectable. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our time at Christie;s. I look forward to a return visit.

    We had a reservation for 8:15 and arrived about 10 minutes early. We were seated by 8:20. Our server was very nice, patient, and prompt, made no mistakes. The way the staff was, I would have thought the restaurant was new. The food met or even exceeded my expectations and the price was reasonable.

    Our first visit, but not the last. Even though a lot of people were waiting prior to our arrival, they evidently didn't have reservations. We had a short wait for our table. White linens were on all the tables. We never felt rushed even though the place was full. We had whole flounder and blackened catfish filets. We split a dessert of dark chocolate cake with a white cream filling. Everything was delicious. The music was soft enough to be heard but did not interfere with our conversation. In fact, we were impressed that we didn't hear anyone else's conversation either. It was the kind of quiet dining that we used to have in fine restaurants. As we left, the waiting area was still full. Great dining experience with excellent service.

    The service was perfect. Not overly attentive and only came by when appropriate. The gulf oysters we had as an appetizer were so good we had to order a second dozen! I had the grilled seafood and only wish there was more than one scallop on the plate. GF had red snapper and she felt it was very good. I tasted and thought it could have used a bit more seasoning but, that's just me. A pleasant evening and we will look forward to returning again.

    Christies is a Houston classic with great service and delicious food. We had a small group for dinner on NYE with a wonderful meal and great service. Even with shortened hours on NYE they were gracious and let us talk and socaiize for a good hour after we finished our meal. I lovely place that deserves thier reputation as one of Houston's best.
