Oceanaire Seafood Room - Houston
Overall, the cost value ofOverall, the cost value of the meal was right on, although the price & quantity of food for the "Seafood Martini" appetizer are disproportionate. I am embarrassed for them to charge that much for the minimal food serving.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of 5 celebrating twoParty of 5 celebrating two birthdays. Seafood all around, the selection of oysters on the half shell is fantastic, all very fresh. The fish choices were simply prepared to promote the flavor of the fish and not smother them with alot of sauces and additions.
The service was phenominal by our waiter, Curtis.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding serviceMike our waiter did an outstanding job making my wife's birthday celebration very special. Food was very good and fresh as usual.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a perfect early meal!I had a salad and soup. It was perfect for me for a 5:30 dinner. I didn't feel pressured to order a big meal nor pushed to get out in order to turn the table. I love this place!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the service wereThe food and the service were both superb throughout our meal. We'll definitely return for a special occasion.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly Recommend!!I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. This is the second time we have been to the Oceanaire during the past few months and the service and food have been excellent both times. We had the same wait staff on this visit as we had during the first visit and they were excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFab EveningExcellent service, food and atmosphere is a good get away from the everyday grind of life.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeI planned a surprise birthday for my husband and wanted a place that was not only romantic but also intimate & upscale because we were having very close friends and family too.

Expensive but the beautiful room with very professional
service is worth it for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMone of the most amazing restaurantswonderful atmosphere, pleasant servers and staff, delicious food and outstanding bread pudding. One of my favorite upscale restaurants by far.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Quality SeafoodIf you are willing to pay for top quality seafood then get here asap. Don't complain about price if that's your thing. 15 options for fresh oysters from around the globe and A+ seafood. Nice wine list and great service. Again, you pay a price for the quality and that's cool with me. Prepare yourself for a steep bill and be happy about it. Yes it's expensive so don't write a "overpriced" review. It just makes you look like an idiot for even coming here in the 1st place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than just good food.Fresh fish, properly cooked. Tough combination to beat. Throw in great service and you have an unbeatable combination.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWife's BirthdayWe have always had a special feeling about the food and service in every Oceanaire we have dined. Keep up the good work.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat StaffI really liked the fact that the staff spoke spanish.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTight SqeezeI have been to this restaurant many times. This past Saturday (5/04), however, it wasn't up to par. The waitstaff is always superb, but one gentleman was responsible for clearing/setting up tables and he was dashing around in hyper speed and constantly bumping in to chairs - hard. Oceanaire now seems to be following the trend of packing in tables instead of allowing for breathing / walking room. You could tell it was frustrating for the servers, as it was difficult to get people their food/drinks. Sit in the bar.
My husband's grilled salmon was perfect. I ordered the Mixed Seafood Platter; the only item not overcooked was the scallops. Toughest shrimp I've ever had. Must have been an off night. The mac & cheese is still da bomb!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service!Had the Mixed Grill Platter and the Seared Tuna. Loved them both.
Service was great. Would recommend to all my friends.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis menu had so many wonderfulThis menu had so many wonderful choices that we had a difficult time choosing.

This is where we eat almost every trip for that romantic dinner.
We are treated first class even though we order wine by the glass from their decent selection.
We noticed that the staff actually reads the note attached to the online reservation and make it a a point of acknowledging us and the event (i.e. birthday, anniversary, new job...). Guests seem to be varied in their attire, we personally prefer to dress up for these date nights.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent.Everything was excellent. I met a friend there for dinner, and both of us were pleasantly pleased with the everything from the appetizer to the entrees, but DESSERT! Sweet goodness gracious. The bread pudding was recommended, and boy I almost kissed the chef for that recommendation. Now as a sophisticated southern belle with a very discerning taste for bread puddings, I wanted to pass on this one because I only eat my mommy's. Sorry mommy, but they have mastered the bread pudding, and they top it with BLUE BELL! I couldn't! Oh but I did! I am going back this weekend with the husband with the husband for our anniversary. I am excited!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOceanaire is a mustOceanaire is one of my fav Houston restaurants. It never disappoints. The food is always great. Great fresh seafood!6/8/2012 12:00:00 AM
