Truly the best seafood establishment in Houston and surrounding area. We are from the East Coast and know fresh fish and seafood. Absolutely terrific food, atmosphere and service from Aaron.

The service was great however the oyster rock had so much garlic that you could not taste the oyster. When we were served our dinner the fish dish was cold.
We have visited the Oceanaire in Baltimore and the food was much better.

Service was absolutely TERRIBLE. Our waiter was downright rude and arrogant, as if he were doing us a big favor for serving us. Most of the time, he simply ignored us.

The food was just OK. We ordered the king crab but is was so salty, we were unable to finish it. This place is very expensive and considering that there are plenty other good options for seafood in Houston, I see no reason for going back.

While the food and service were very good, the value for the money was lacking, $20 for two sea scallops is ludicrous. This was our first time dining here and it will be the last!

Doug , our waiter was a great and took time to recommend both food and wine. When we could not decide on the wine, he brought us a sample of each for taste test. Steak and seafood were excellent and the service was superb. Would definitely recommend for special occasion or simple night out.

This dinner was for my birthday. The food was amazing, especially the Dover Sole. They did not rush you thru the appetizer. The wine was great. They brought an Baked Alaska for my birthday which I had never had before so it was really special to me.

This restaurant is so much nicer than the location in Washington, DC. That being said, there were two parties in the main area. I would prefer that parties be in private rooms. I think that the loud groups disturb the ambiance. Also I had to take off one star because the wine selection was pitiful.

There were four of us at the restaurant for my birthday. We had a very attentive server her name is Rosie. The chef sent out a sample of a salmon on a sampling spoon. I don't remember what is was called but it was very tasty. I started with a glass of Cantina Terlano, Pinot Grigio, Alto Adige DOC. Very nice white wine that was not too dry or too sweet. For my entree I had the grilled filet mignon and shrimp. It was cooked to perfection . One of our group ordered the mac and cheese with bacon. More than enough to share. I got a taste. Yum. Rosie, our server, brought me two copies on the menus rolled like a scroll with ribbon as a birthday keepsake. Nice little touch.

To end the meal the restaurant comped the table a bake Alaska that was soaked in several liquors the main one being 151. It was good so glad I was not driving :-) Again great presentation and the perfect end to a perfect meal. I would definitely go back again.

Everything was great. The food from the HRW was fabulous, from appetizer to dessert. The salmon dynamite was just spicy enough, the surf and turf was cooked perfectly. The bread pudding, baked alaska, and key lime pie was very good. The staff deserve kudos, everyone was super attentive. Overall superb service and meal.

A big room, '90s style high-end although they don;'t know the concept is dated, and they do it SO well. Fresh wonderful seafood, crisp linens, I love this room. Superb oyster selection too, if you roll that way.
