    It was comedic for a restaurant in this price range - $200 for cocktail, dinner and a shared dessert. I was chuckling from the start. The waiter did not know the food preparation to answer basic questions. My wife has a food allergy and he still served us something with that ingredient. I ordered theirsignature cocktail and they were unable to make it that night due to some missing ingredient. The waiter ordered the wrong dish for me and blamed me for the mixup. My wife had the crab legs and they were served cold. They capped it off by asking us if we wanted dessert... while we were still eating dinner. I've been to the San Diego location and it was awesome. I think they need to try something new in Dallas. Won't be back.

    We only come here on special occasion because of the high prices but when we do we always spoil ourselves with yummy seafood. I love the crab cakes there. Very juicy and fresh. Love the sauce that comes with it. They make birthday celebrations very special with a complementary baked Alaskan. Love this place!

    We went here for my birthday dinner. They surprised us with custom made menus - such a classy touch! The portions are large enough to share but so delicious you may not want to. The crab cake was delicious and a definite must have. Service was top notch. Everything was perfect from the time we entered the restaurant until we left.

    Although it's not run by the Westin, it is still in the hotel. But don't think for one minute Oceanaire is your run-of-the mill hotel restaurant. The raw bar is elegant and a vibrant scene. Decent wine list. Dinner was outstanding!!! The raw oysters were fresh and delicious. But the twin lobster tails were out of this world!!!! Wait staff were very courteous and prompt. Overall excellent!

    For a high class restaurant the service was not up to our standards. Im paying $50+/plate I'd like for my drink to be refilled and to wait less than 15 minutes to be greeted, asked if I want dessert, and to be cashed out. Food was good though.

    Ambience was great. Appetizers were great. My Halibut was very small and little taste for the price. My wifes Scampi was very good. All in all I feel the food is over priced , Service was fair but not good. Will not recommend for friends nor will I return. This was a special occasion for us beings it was our 40th Anniversary and it turned out unspecial.

    Celebrated my daughters' graduation and had a party of 9. Food was excellent and the only reason I give a 4 out of 5 for service is because we weren't asked if we wanted the bill split before hand and it took an extremely long time to get that done, but other than that the service was very, very good. Management was engaging (which is always nice). My family and I had a wonderful time! Thanks and great job to my favorite restaurant!!

    I eat at a number of Landry's restaurants and I must say the food this last time was average. The only fair way to make this judgement is to compare with other Landry restaurants. I wish we had a Willie G's and a good traditional Landry's.

    Went here because we heard they had a great happy hour...problem was poor service. We ordered 3 items from H-hour menu, our order came out wrong. Shrimp and grits was really good, filet sliders were over cooked, got mussels, ordered fish tacos. Could tell the person who brought us food was annoyed with bartender which tells me orders are wrong a lot. Ordered a $14.00 margarita that was made with sweet n sour when described as made with lime juice...not good. Felt like we had to flag down bartenders for service when we're sitting right in front of them. Overall would not go back... $98 but felt like way less. Too bad, beautiful restaurant but not worth the money.

    Started at the Oyster bar and tried out the varieties of oysters. The Host was accommodating to our request to dine upstairs. The King Crab legs and Salmon dishes were cooked perfectly and served promptly. For dessert, he Key Lime pie and Carrot Cake were huge. Enough for three. Service was attentive without bearing overbearing.

    The Oceanaire ranks up on the top of my all-time exquisite seafood restaurants. The decor is classy, the service was incredible, and the food was simply amazing. A bit on the pricier side, so for special occasions, but worth it. Definitely in the books for fancier (but not stuffier) nights out.

    Waitress (Nina) was fantastic. Been here several times before and on Mother's Day had a waiter that was kind of snippy, bordered on rude, and very up attentive. Friday May 23 was a completely different experience. Nina took our order and visited the table several times to make jokes with my kids and myself. She was very professional and attentive, even when she got a party of about 12 in the section next to us. She recommended excellent dishes and drinks (for me). She wasn't rude and did not make an assumption about the kind of guest I would be. I spent $280 including the tip for myself and my 2 kids. Good food + good service earns high dollars! I will request Nina's section on my next visit!

    Making the reservation was a breeze and the restaurant was ready when we arrived, so we had no wait. The hostesses could class up what they wear since they are who we see first. Online the restaurant was reviewed as a "dressy" place, but a lot of people were very casual with shorts, flip flops, ect...disappointing. We were met by our server quickly and he was great! Its a bit pricey, but the food was really good - not great. All in all, we had a good time, but this won't become a repeated visit.

    It was my daughter's birthday (plus her best friend and my fiance' were with us) and it was just not a good night on all levels. The restaurant. knew in advance that it was her birthday and that she had never been there prior. I asked that they make it special. Menus were nice w/her name on top. We were sat upstairs next to a very large party, and the ambiance wasn't nice at all. It was cramped and quite frankly very cold feeling. She & friend ordered scallops (over $40) & there were only 4 VERY SMALL scallops. They were starving when we left. My fish was 1/4 of the size it usually is & my fiance's dish cold and small. The drinks were mostly ice and very small as well. It makes me sad but if this is the new Oceanaire, I won't be back.

    Because we were staying at the Westin in the Galleries Mall, we ate here twice. The first night was outstanding! Carl, our server, was exceptional....full of fun and offered superb dining choices! Our meals were impeccably prepared and delicious. On our second visit, the server fell short if our expectations, failing to provide requested items and missing an opportunity to help us celebrate an important birthday. I'd like to give five stars across the board for the first evening....but must take a few away for the second. Still, the food is amazing, so it's worth the visit.....just ask for Carl's table!!

    We arrived promptly for our reservations of 10 on Mothers Day for dinner. Cordially greeted by male host and escorted through packed dining room to the back of restaurant next to kitchen. Bread, menus and water were brought out immediately-off to a good start. It was when we finished the bread & butter and reviewed our menu choices that we realized no one has came by our table to get our drink orders...30 minutes passed and my brother went to asked host who was our waiter. apparently, our table was never assigned one! a nice waitress rushed over and took appetizer order and children's order. By the time kids leftovers were packed the entrees still did not arrive. A dinner that started at 630pm didn't end until 930pm and no time for dessert

If we asked her about an item on the menu, she would tell us if she recommended it or would honestly tell us she haven't tried it and doesn't know if it good or not we liked that.

    We stayed at the Westin and wanted a "eat, drink, and be merry" no hassle eve. Our night was excellent! Lobster, crusted Chilean sea bass, creamed corn, mushroom blend, Brussels Sprouts with bacon....and flaming baked Alaska. Our server was very attentive, our table felt private because we were in the booths and the restaurant was lively but the noise was not something I even noticed until I read the line on this eval and thought...well, there probably was noise but we didn't even register it! Completely had a fabulous eve!
