Seafood
Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette (LKRO) prides itself in it’s Oyster Bar. The multiple use seating at and around the Oysterette is inviting and friendly. The huge oyster, fresh seafood and whole fish display showcases seasonality and the vastness of the seafood offerings at LKRO. A traditional Japanese Robata Grill and a vertical 'Trompo' Grill are part of the Oysterette’s flexibility in a small space making the 'mini-kitchen' capable of producing freshly shucked oysters, grilled oysters, sushi, seafood towers and fresh carved tacos.

Moving into the main kitchen, the menu is just as wide and deep with a variety of local and regional seafood dishes and local Texas Beef. Our desire, as always, is to have a little something delicious for everyone and a menu for every palate as well as daily and weekly special features inspired by the bounty of available produce, meats and seafood in the Gulf Coast and beyond.

Redfish was excellent- all the seafood on the table was great- I tasted it all. Great wine list and service was attentive, but not too much.

Need to clean up Vent Hood regularly to improve chargrilled smell upon entering the restaurant. It will be nice if the waiter told us his name. Temperature of bowl of gumbo can be warmer.

Great place to go for casual dining a special occasion. The staff was attentive but not invasive. Found our new place in Houston to go for seafood lobster bisque, lobster tail, crab balls, oysters on the half shell and a full bar. For those of you not in the mood for seafood, incredible choices and selections from the turf side of dining.

I came here often around 2017/2018. The food has gone downhill considerably. My sister didn’t even eat her food. I barely ate mine. Service wasn’t good. Overall a disappointment and too expensive for a bad experience. Skip it!

Two Saturdays in a row - I like this place. Very friendly service and nice food. The kitchen was slow (dinner lasted 3 hours for party of 4) but I blame that on the difficulty restaurants are having with bringing back their staff. Quality was great.

Felt that the waiter right off the bat had a terrible attitude and service skills. Felt like every time we asked him for something it was just so hard for him. We had asked for an extra drink menu for a table of six. He wanted us to share one menu because he stated that they were running low on menus. Finally after my third request he finally walked over and grabbed a menu as if it was so difficult for him. We had to ask another waiter coffee refill. The birthday person had to walk to the bar to get another main menu. The service made us feel so frustrated and this was supposed to be a happy birthday celebration brunch. Also my red velvet waffles were hard and cold. My friend’s purgatory eggs looked like a tomato basil soup which just had way too much sauce. And thus bc the table is 6 people the waiter charged automatic 20% tip but I can tell you just bc the gets an automatic 20% tip he should at least earn it. Having to get things from others is not. I expected much more from Liberty Kitchen. Highly disappointed.

Our waitress disappeared and we couldn’t order. She eventually showed up. My lunch partner received the wrong entree which they corrected but had to wait.

I dine out everyday and the quality of the dishes here needs to be drastically improved. Aside from the east coast oysters, which were not even shucked properly, everything was subpar for the location/ price/ ambience. Management and Chef need take note, should have stuck with Loch Bar for the evening. Took 3 guests here and it was embarrassing. Aside from the foods, the staff and service were too notch. Please work on the quality of the foods, you have such a great location and ambiance.

We didn’t like the dishes we ordered. But we think that is just a case of ordering the wrong thing for us. The place was super noisy due to the design.

Second time coming here. First time was terrific and this one was substandard. We ordered the appetizer fondue with chorizo and didn’t like it and sent it back and they left it on the bill and we forgot to check it at the end I got charge for something we didn’t enjoy. The food also felt a little less flavorful then my first visit. We brought another couple and weren’t thrilled and left underwhelmed.

I had reservations for standard seating at 8pm & was seated in the bar area. I asked the hostess politely to check availability in the main dining room and she responded that’s for guests with reservations. I dine out frequently for business & this was a miss from a training perspective. Food and service was great but this tainted the overall experience and won’t be in a rush to return.
