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.

Top notch service, friendly staff. The halibut was outstanding, crispy outside yet tender on the inside. It was a good portion along with sliced squash. The cocktails were a bit pricey but tasty.

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.

The Oceanaire and Executive Chef Steve Haug is hands down the best fine dining in Houston. Amazing food with even more amazing people. Always a pleasure to dine there. Highly recommend anyone to dine here for any occasion. We keep going back over and over and we are more and more pleased each time.

Over cooked salmon. Sent it back and asked for it to go. Rather than comp the poor executed FISH order, they threw in a slice of cheesecake and called it even. There’s a reason they can’t fill their dining room on a Friday night I guess!

The seafood is excellent, wine list extensive and appropriate, ambience very good. Service is always and consistently great.

For special nights and for double dates with another couple, we tend to get a table. For a quick romantic drink with great snacks, we prefer the bar area.

My wife and I went here for the first time ever and were pleasantly surprised by the prices and food quality. The restaurant was very nice and the atmosphere was vibrant. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining different options available from the appetizer, to the main course, and finally the dessert. Overall my wife and I enjoyed our experience and we will definitely be going back to the Oceanaire.

The food was over cooked and salty. We also over ordered sides and the waiter should have warned us that we ordered too much but we noticed it was par for the course at another table when they ordered 4 desserts and one would have sufficed.

Food and service were excellent. No complaints. Well maybe one little complaint. The mojito lacked bar syrup. But the sides and scallops were devine. And the desserts were delicious. Especially the bread pudding. We will all go again.

My very favorite food is steak, My friend from out of town wanted to go somewhere nice to celebrate moving to Texas etc, so I choose the Oceanaire......We were both BLOWN away, Her Lobster thermidor was perfect and my 16oz New York strip was the 2nd best steak I have ever had, better than Ruth Chris and Morton's Steak house, no joke. I will be back for sure, pricey but SO worth it.

The best part was the food. Everyone enjoyed the meal. However we were disappointed in the level of service we received. The waiter did not provide a proper intro and just asked us if anyone wanted drinks or had in questions. He was also short and rude in his responses to the questions we had. We complained to guest services and were told he was one of their most seasoned on staffed and had a different sense of humor. We didn’t allow this to ruin our visit and the food being good helped, but this hurts when comparing Oceanaire to other top notch restaurants we have visited.

We decided to dine at the bar and Chris the bartender did an excellent job of making it an enjoyable dining experience. The cocktail shrimp was a meal in itself, the potato crusted salmon was delicious and the drinks were great. Enjoy.

(Sidenote: met a gentleman outside who seemed like he had just finished work, named Pablo that I spoke with at length while awaiting my coworker.....and he was extremely nice too, I think the service at this place was definitely top notch with great people)

Booked in advance for Valentines celebration meal. Requested a window table but advised on arrival that was not available however the feeling was relaxed and we looked forward to the experience as suggested by the web page etc. Seated at bar for drinks which never arrived and then seated at table and asked if we would like more drinks.!!
We ordered drinks and, after watching the waiter run by us spilling the drink on the floor, the mess was wiped up but not enough to prevent a passing lady slip and almost fall.
The drinks finally arrived and we eagerly ordered our appetizers which did take some time to arrive. The Crabcake was very good and the Buttermilk Fried Calamari looked good but unfortunately was over cooked and had to be returned. the replacement was not much better either.
Our entree was not taken until we had started the appetizers creating another delay.
Background music was pleasant and overall the impression was still one of good things to come.
We both had the Snapper which was enjoyed and well cooked.
Overall the attention to detail was not as expected. I am a Landry's Club member and enjoyed many superb meals but this one I am afraid did not succeed.

Michelle our server was fabulous. She was knowledgeable about wine menu and food options. She was funny and very attentive. We got seated earlier than our reservation time. Manager came by to see how things were going and iced out bottle of wine. Was busy and packed but, we felt like we were the only ones there. Would definitely go back again.
