We made reservations for Mother's Day dinner. Everything was really good, except the one thing that I was really looking forward to, the Lobster Thermidor. I was so very disappointed in it, it was fishy and dry, not at all cheesey and creamy. I would definitely not get this again. Everything else was really good. We had the Rock Shrimp Tempura for an appetizer, it was yummy! The lobster mac & cheese and crab truffle mashed potatoes were delicious. I would definitely visit again, but I would try different dishes.

The food and drinks were delicious. The interior of the restaurant was very nice, but you are ground level with people walking by the window, a little off putting for an anniversary dinner. Staff were very polite and quick to refill your drinks.

We visited for Mother's Day and had been looking forward to do it for years. The grilled oysters were delicious and drinks were very nice, but the scallops, risotto, and stuffed flounder were bland, which was disappointing. Since we have heard wonders about this place we may come back once again in a less busy day in hopes that it does not disappoint.

We went to Oceanaire for Mother’s Day. My nine-year-old daughter was with us and the waiter was so great to her. Often at nice restaurants children are just an annoyance. It was loud and packed but the food was incredible and served in a timely manner. The valet at the Galleria, however, is a bear on holidays. They need to stand up.

Mothers Day so restaurant very busy, honestly service was pretty slow. Appreciate not being rushed but we waited quite a bit of time to get our first Mimosa!! Mother's Day Lobster was scrumptious and my men loved their Benedict, caramel cheesecake was delicious and a huge portion. Doubtful the restaurants fault, but having to wait 25 minutes for valet to get our car took a bit of the enjoyment off our otherwise wonderful day.

We went for brunch. It was not the high quality food we’ve had at dinner. The waffles were missing parts as if they ran out of batter. The chicken looked like little frozen pieces that were fried. The salmon appetizer was great, as usual. Coffee was cold and we had to constantly ask for refills. The grits were good.
Next time, we will stick to the dinner menu or just get seafood.

The Oceanaire is always consistent in terms of quality of food. I had the surf and turf, and both steak and lobster were wonderful. The steak was actually better than anticipated. We were a bit disappointed in our server this visit. She was not up to the normal level of service we have experienced. No specials were explained and not really interested in serving us this evening. We have been here many times and we will return many more. One less than stellar server will not damped our enjoyment of The Oceanaire!

Fuimos a cenar el sabado por la noche, el lugar estaba vacio pero el mesero se justifico que el servicio estaba lento por un evento que tenian arriba.

Nuestras entradas nunca llegaron y los platos fuertes tardaron casi 1 hora. Tuve que compartir la carne con mi hijo porque su pescado era un asco.

Una verguenza de lugar

We have dined at Oceanaire in Boston and Washington, both of which were quite good. To me, there seems to be a problem with Oceanaire in Houston. Problems start with the unbelievable traffic on Westheimer. It appears that you need to valet park--couldn't find a self-parking spot. To me the food was mediocre, the prices very high, the service a bit hurried. The bar wouldn't give me change to pay the valet attendant. It wasn't a pleasant experience. It was Saturday night--the dining room was about half occupied.

In keeping with the tradition of Lent and eating only fish on Fridays, we decided on a seafood dinner from Oceanaire. We absolutely loved all of our seafood dishes from start to finish. The appetizers were all delicious with beautiful presentation. My husband and I ordered the seafood mixed grill and it was truly the best mixed grill I’ve had here in Houston. The quality, freshness and portion sizes of the seafood variety was “seafood stellar”!! Luscious lobster and scrumptious shrimp and scallops were the three seafoods that made up the mixed grill. For a healthy green, we enjoyed the grilled asparagus that came with it. Thank you Oceanaire for taking great care of us on Friday evening and we look forward to another return!!

A highly enjoyable dinner in an outstanding restaurant. Great ambience and highly attentive knowledgeable friendly service. We had our main course fish simply grilled with a light butter sauce and they were both fantastic and cooked to perfection. The accompanying vegetables were also excellent. Very highly recommended.

Great food, however, if you plan on going for lunch DO NOT BE IN A HURRY!! I took my wife for lunch on a Friday and all told we were there GB or just over 2 hours with and hour and 45 minutes waiting on appetizers and entrees!

The server was magnificent though and we felt bad for him as he had to continuously apologize for the slow kitchen.
