Our visit at Oceanaire was amazing! We made reservations and from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we were treated wonderfully. It was my birthday and they seated us at a round booth and proceeded to be welcoming and attentive. Andre was our server and he outdid himself, bringing samples of various items to try and making recommendations from the menu.

The food was amazing, delicious and presented beautifully. The Ahi tower, the Crabcakes with Filet Mignon were out of this world - flavorful, large pieces of crab, and cooked medium rare as requested. The mini baked Alaska was delightful. Light and the chocolate ice cream was a nice finish to the evening.

Highly recommend.

Seafood was very good overall. Dover sole outstanding as was the grilled shellfish and oysters. Baked Alaska for dessert. Highly recommend the restaurant.
Dress code apparently not enforced. Everything from coats and ties for men to cut off blue jeans. Not a place I would recommend for a fancy dinner. I would encourage the restaurant to define a code and enforce it or just say it’s come as you are. I don’t think I saw any pajamas but close.
I understand casual but this was ridiculous.

Our first time dinning experience for our Anniversary was awesome. The hostess gave us a warm greeting when we arrived. The waiter, Audre, was very knowledgeable of the items on the menu and the recommendations he gave us was excellent. We will be dinning there again in the very near future.

Best service and finest food I have ever had in Houston. Oceanaire is a very fine venue and still not too crowded.
Worth a trip!
My wife loves the sole, I like the Clam Chowder.
Try it, great fresh oysters too.

They were out of a lot of menu items that night. But the food we could order was good! Would not recommend the calamari, we did not care for the batter...and a little over cooked.

The food was what I expect , great taste. The service was great got a $5 discount on valet . I would have given a 5 star rating except it was Christmas and you would think they would have something that made families feel extra special to have reserved them on that day. I don’t know red rose a red gift bag I don’t know. I guess I shouldn’t expect all great restaurants to go the extra mile. But I would definitely recommend

This was a disappointing visit to Oceanaire although it does remain one of my favorite places for seafood. I was there on a business dinner with a friend from overseas. Her fish was served raw something that totally shocked me as I have been there many times and that was a first. The staff were quick to address the issue and they did right when it came to the bill but this was still disappointing. I consider this a one off and will be back but for my guest, the first impression was not up the the standard you expect for a place like Oceanaire.

I dined at this particular location for the first time last week. I started with raw oysters. For an entree, I had the crab cakes with the Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes as side dishes. Our server Doug was outstanding and provided excellent service. I would highly recommend this place for every day dining or special occasions.

OpenTable allowed an 8pm reservation on Black Friday. When we were seated, the server says “we actually are closed at 8, so if you want something, you’re going to have to hurry up.” We immediately got up and went across the hallway to Del Frisco’s, who despite closing at 9, never made us feel rushed. We spent $600 on dinner and tip.

I won’t be going back to Oceanaire anytime soon.

The chopped seafood salad and gumbo were delicious. The bread pudding is fantastic. We have always had delicious meals at Oceanaire. Lily, our server was the most outstanding server we have ever had and was attentive, knew the menu well, and offered impeccable customer service.

The service was extremely slow, our waitress was knowledgeable yet annoying, she over explained every dish. She recommended a drink that I didn’t like but then implied something was wrong with me because I didn’t like it. My cousin had an allergic reaction to her meal. The birthday dessert took over 15 minutes to come out. There was one waitress that kept coming by when our waitress was gone and she heard every concern and catered to our every need! She is the only reason why I would return!

The food and service at Oceanaire Seafood Room was impeccable. I tried the Chicken Fried Lobster and was thoroughly impressed and the Lobster mac & cheese, paired really well together. Andre was an amazing waiter and I cannot wait to come back for dinner.

This was my first time here. The service was great, but in comparison to other restaurants in this price point, the food wasn’t great. The food did not meet my expectations, which is disappointing since I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant out for a long time. My friends compared some of the dishes to Panda Express or Costco roasted chicken, so you can imagine my disappointment. I hope that the experience will be different next time.
