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.

    We were immediately taken to the back to be seated, that had costco folding tables and plastic chair for a lunch would cost us $150 for 2 easily. That room should be reserved for those who don’t make reservations.if you pay this kind of money no one should sit at such a dingy lowly lit room with plastic chairs Server was distracted, perhaps it was Father’s Day mania, but the restaurant was 60% full

    Would have been better than normal if it wasn’t for the fingernail left on our bread plate by the prior customer or maybe even the waitstaff since looked like we were the first people to sit at this table when they opened.

    Our server was fantastic. When asked if he could accommodate an order, he did. However, he came back to inform us that a particular ingredient, which my friend cannot have, was part of the sauce, he then suggested another alternative. We thanked him for his honesty and appreciated him and the Chef, for their understanding and accommodation.

    Excellent food, always. Love to sit at the bar, but during the summertime with outside temps ranging from 95-100 plus degrees, their AC does not keep up with the heat. Service this time was so-so. We miss the bartender, Juan, who apparently moved on and our other favorite bartender, Maggie, was not working the afternoon we went.

    I’ve been to liberty kitchen many times and last night the kitchen was off. They brought the appetizer and main course at the same time and the main course was missing some food we ordered. The dessert was terrible. I ordered a burnt marshmallow shake ( as I always do ) and sent it back twice. It’s kinda hard to screw that up but they did.

    We were very disappointed in liberty kitchen. The menu sounded great, but the food did not measure up. We had to order a martini twice and they still didn’t get it right. We ordered Hamachi and whatever was served was not Hamachi. It definitely was not sushi grade fish. It was inedible. The server however was very nice and did his best, but the food was very disappointing. We will not be returning. There are too many great restaurants in Houston to enjoy.

    I’d been here for dinner before and the food was great. Today’s brunch was not so great. I did enjoy the calamari and my cake bacon roll, but my breakfast plate (2x2x2) was subpar. I sent the entire plate back and was still charged for it. Don’t plan on returning for brunch.

    We spent $300 for previously frozen fish. And it was The Special. Our server was terrific, but I have eaten better fish in the cafeteria. Mediocre at best. I’ll go to Tony’s or Brennan’s next time.

    Very impressed by not only the food and nice outdoor dining, but also by the staff. Some support staff carted off trash through the outdoor patio as we were eating there, and we brought this to the attention of our waiter, who then brought over the manager. Chelsea was very apologetic, and comped our meal, which was not expected (but we were grateful nonetheless!). We will certainly be back to this fine restaurant...
