We had a nice dinner. The food was a bit more spicy than we liked, but tasted great otherwise. We loved the freshness of the seafood. The vibe of the place is casual, like a neighborhood place that people return to often. Noise level was just right - we could easily talk around the table without having to raise our voices, but also not too quiet. Overall we felt it was a good value for money.

We went for dinner before the theater. Service was prompt. Food was well-prepared, although the oysters were small. We liked the fact that we could hear each other without loud background noise.

Danton's provides delicious seafood dishes, not a lot of surprises but good to great comfort food. The crawfish/corn bisque was very nice, and grilled redfish was prepared to a turn. All good. The waiter made a very good suggestion for wine that was exactly what we had wanted, and that was a very nice plus to the night. I enjoyed it and will be back.

We always try to go to Danton's when in Houston. Once again, we're glad we did. The broiled flounder was divine. My husband had a shrimp and oyster entree that we usually have as an appetizer. He did not offer to share! The yams are more like a dessert. They are so yummy! The dirty rice was seasoned just right. The crowning glory was the white chocolate bread pudding. You will want to lick the bowl. It's enough to share! So, so delicious!

Just recently discovered this gem. We have dined two times in the last month and we were very pleased both times. The wait staff are friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The cocktails were spot on and the appetizers and entrees did not disappoint. We appreciate the ambience! Can't wait to return.

We had a wonderful time here. We started with martinis followed by the oyster sampler and some boudin. My husband had the shrimp creole and I had the Crab Salad. Delicious! Our server, Louis,was fantastic. We enjoyed his sense of humor and his knowledge of wine. I would love to come back on my next visit to Houston.

Everything was wonderful from the service to the delicious food. We had several appetizers and they were all perfect: boudin balls, crab fingers, gumbo, corn crab chowder, and oysters. Def try the shooters: ceviche and buffalo. Only disappointing part was when I made the reservation, I put a note that it was a surprise anniversary dinner and hoped they would do something special with a dessert like most places but it was't even acknowledged. Some places read the requests you put in and some don't. It was still a delicious meal and first experience.

We went there for Houston restaurant weeks with their set menu. The 1st course (Oysters) was good, 2nd course (Seafood combo platter) was not so good because the fried items (Shrimp, catfish & onion rings) was not crispy at all and 3rd course (key lime cheesecake) was good.

Awesome seafood restaurant near museum district and medical center. Freshest seafood in town. Whether you get it grilled, fried, sautéed or other, it's done perfectly and seasoned well. This time we both got fresh ling, grilled, with sides of red beans and rice and cole slaw. That slaw is great: prepared with a tangy vinaigrette instead of sweet creamy dressing. Be sure to ask for their garlic remoulade to go with whatever you order. Kyle, the owner, came by to make sure all was well; and Louis, the GM, was very attentive too.

The jazz was great and the food was good. The only complaint about the food was that the red beans and rice were cold and they did not have coffee but it was 3:40 pm. The waitress said they poured the last out so I skipped desert.

Food was disappointing . Chicken and sausage gumbo made from powdered roux. Crab cake appetizer OK, light on the crab, more like a fritter than a crab cake. Jazz was delightful, not too loud. Large plate of cheese grits with bacon wrapped shrimp ok. The bread pudding very tasty, a little over the top with the sauce.
