A word from Oceanaire Seafood Room - Houston
As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire. Continued

  • "Oysters and king crab were great! Good food. Fresh seafood. Good service."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Best meal since moving to the Houston area. Red snapper was awesome. Oscar (waiter) was great. We are new to the Houston area and found after using the Valet service that we didn't have cash. Oscar gave us $ out of his own pocket, he got a 26% tip"

  • "Great time to dine (during Houston Restaurant Weeks). The waitstaff was extremely attentive."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We went with the intent of ordering off the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. The food was delicious, although I'm not sure I could have justified paying full price. All in all, we were very very pleased with our experience. However, I would be hard pressed to put this at the top of my list. Great food & service, but not necessarily the best food/service in town at that price point. If you're in the galleria area, it's definitely worth consideration."

  • "I visited the Oceanaire Room for Houston Restaurants Weeks. The menu was divine. I had the spicy tuna tower as an appetizer, the steak and shrimp as the main course, and the bread pudding for dessert. All three selections were delicious. The decor is beautiful with big windows to enjoy the Galleria scenery. Would definitely love to go back on another occasion."

  • "We had a good time in Oceanaire. I had the calamari for appetizer which is nice but my husband chowder was very tasty. I would recommend that. Then I had crab cake slider for main and I think it is one of the lightest crab cake slider I ever had. I will definitely come back to have that again. The fish was awesome too. I definitely will come again."

  • "Started with the shrimp and grits-amazing. Main course was the black and bleu flounder - amazing, finished off with the caramel bread pudding dessert. Heaven on earth. Every foodies dream!!!"

  • "This was my third time to dine at this restaurant. Two out of three times, it has been an awful dining experience. My companion ordered steak and shrimp and the steak was burnt to a crisp. It was far from edible. I can not even believe they served it to us. The waiter was inattentive. We had to flag someone else down to get his attention for a water refill. Another waiter did not waste any time to take our plates away before we were even finished eating. I am not one to complain about anything, but I think this restaurant deserves a review. I was once again very disappointed and probably will not return for a fourth time."

  • "I took my husband to Oceanaire to celebrate his birthday. This was our 1st time going there and I found them on the Houston Restaurant Week list. The ambiance, food and our waiter Terrence was wonderful. We had a great evening and dining experience."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Our fish was cold and over cooked. By the time we were given new entrees the other 2 people had finished their meal."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I was not impressed with the food. I originally ordered the sole stuffed with crab meat, but the item was sold out due to restaurant week. So I ordered fried shrimp and fries. The shrimp taste as if they were burnt or fried to long. Definitely wouldn't recommend that dish."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "every thing was great accept our Martinis the glasses were have full even after the waiter went to get more votka it was not enough in ore glass."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I was most impressed by the Appetizer and dessert course for Restaurant Week. I had the steak & shrimp entree...both were dry and the asparagus was simply chopped and put on the plate. I was disappointed with the entree, but overall the experience was nice."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The service was amazing and prompt. The restaurant is very neat and clean. The scenery makes this a wonderful spot for date night."

  • "Food is tasty, however service can be more attentive. I have to keep on reminding our waiter to refill our drinks."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "My wife and I went to have a nice dinner out to a restaurant we have never been. We each odered off the Houston restaurant week menu plus a few a la cart items. Food was good and plentiful but service was slow. Each course took a while to come out. We were seated at our table for 2 hrs which is a long time to have a 3 course meal. Don't plan on trying them again."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Getting a good sit away from the kitchen was difficult or more so it was difficult working with the seating staff. Our server was excellent and recommended great dishes"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "My visit was for HRW and the selection was awesome so I can only imagine what the full menu would be like. Our server was very professional and kind. My only complaint was that our food took a long time to come to the table but I assume that was because things were being made to order or because if the traffic. Overall the experience was wonderful and i would reccommend this place."

  • "Liked the way they handled the restaurant week offerings."

  • "Good restaurant. A bit disappointing for Restaurant Week. Super small portions. Have been to Restaurant Week at several other places and have been served normal lunch portions. This was maybe 2 ounces of fish. Good taste, but too small."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "From the moment the valet service parked our car until we got back into it, everything was spectacular. We ordered the appetizer, don't remember what it was called but it had shrimp, crab legs, snow crab claws and lobster and, quite honestly, could have served as our meal for four. We also go to the Oceanaire in the Dallas Galleria and enjoy it as well. This location is a bit smaller in the bar area but still comfortable."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I was very disappointed. I loved the seafood martini at Pesce's. This really missed the boat. The calamari had NOPepper or chili flakes, tasted more sweet and sour and looked like a half order. I love the dish at Eddie V's and expected to love it again. Not so much! The service is not good, at least not consistent. The staff has a good attitude but just could not find the right rhythm. Things were either siting too long or they we're too intrusive. I won't return and do not recommend it. There are much better places to eat a great seafood dinner in Houston. This was almost fast foodie at higher end prices."

  • "I am a regular guest and always enjoy the lobster thermidor; service is always excellent"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "It seemed as though the staff's intentions were to please, but the fact is that they were dysfunctional. We arrived at 7:30 for our scheduled reservation, but had to wait for a bit at the bar. The place was packed, yet they had only 2 bartenders. It took forever to get a drink! we were finally seated at our table and it took a very long time to be greeted by our server, and an extraordinarily long time to get our food. My view is that they lack solid management and structure. The portions were very small as well. Somewhat disappointed in the experience, as I was at the Dallas location several years ago."

  • "Went to Oceannaire to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were a party of 3 (including a picky 19 year old daughter) and all of us enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was great and of course the service was also!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Service was extremely slow, and the waiter did not check the table often. I ran out of water, which was what I was drinking with the meal. Food was warm, but not hot. Oysters were tiny. Table itself was very small, dishes barely fit, and tables were crowded together. Wine list was ample. Very clean restaurant. Overall, I will probably never go back."

  • "This was our first time and the people there are great! We got a treat from the chef. They treat customers like VIP"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Oceanaire is fantastic as it has delicious quality food and the service is top-notch. The menu items are unique like the Shrimp and Grits, Tuna Tartare and Fried Shrimp. There's a little bit for everyone from a Shrimp pasta to Fish Tacos. The seafood is excellent and you'd be lucky to catch one of the specials like 2lb Lobster for $39!"

  • "The service was great. My fish was overcooked and dry."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great food, great service, nice atmosphere. One of the best seafood gumbos I've ever had. Same for the baked stuff shrimp. Desert portions are HUGE. Even if you are there for just a drink, do not miss the hashbrowns - the best anywhere."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Always reliable, super fresh fish and seafood. Excellent flavors, great variety and new dishes with great frequency. Portion size very appropriate. Large selection of well-priced wines. Clean, light, comfortable dining area, without being too noisy. Prompt, efficient service, without being in your face. Beats all other fish and/or seafood places in town."

  • "We arrived on time for the July 4th Red, White and Blue special (Filet Mignon and Crab Cake). The service was fantastic. We were seated immediately near the window and the waiter was attentive. The only draw back was that two of our dishes were only luke warm (the crab cakes and macaroni and cheese). Both dishes were sent back for reheating which ruined the dinner some. Once reheated both dishes were delicious (especially the key lime pie). This was our second visit. During our first visit, we had to send the entree back for reheating. We love the restaurant just hated that part of the dinner was only lukewarm. Despite everything, we plan to visit again soon."
