Took a business acquaintance there for lunch. Not crowed - bad weather day. Interesting menu. Loved the crab cakes. Had chicken and sausage gumbo too. Wait staff efficient and attentive. Definite repeat

We are visitors to Houston who decided to try Danton's for a Cajun meal. We are very glad that we made that choice. The food was fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the crab/corn chowder, that was the perfect balance of creamy and spicy. The fried oysters were beautifully prepared. We will recommend Danton's to others.

The server (Barry) was horrible, we ordered a drink and appetizers and the appetizers came and the drink (hot tea) came 45 minuets later, we’d asked for honey for the tea and was advised he’d have to go to the back to try and find some and the price for the portions size was ridiculous.

Danton's food never disappoints. Always good taste, good service and manageable noise level. Often use Danton's for business meals but also good for dates.

Waiter would leave for extended times- somewhat slow to get drink orders out-
Delicious bread- hungry for oysters but weren’t friend crisp and used a flour coating instead of cornmeal- great dirty rice

2nd time here and it was exceptional again. Our Server, Barry, was excellent and so was the food. Stuffed shrimp, baked oyesters, stuffed redfish and bread pudding were some of the best I have had. Overall one of my all t8me favorite restaurants in all of theUS.

We had a difficult party of 7 (difficult being special tastes, picky eaters, etc. and a very demanding diner).

All of our food came out perfect, hot and delicious. Everyone loved their food.

Our Server, Zachary, went beyond the call of duty and anticipated our needs. He gave exceptional service and should be commended.
