My wife & I only come here on special occasions. The food is great, scenic view is awesome, but it is very pricey if you decide to do a big steak and drink wine (bottle). Always a great experience though.

Got there early for a drink in the bar. Seated us promptly at our table (with a great view). Service was excellent. We had venison, drum and crab cakes. All cooked perfectly. The sides were large enough to share. Definitely will be back.

There was nothing we did not like from our dinner. My wife had the fresh catch of the day and she loved it. I had the 12 oz. Prime Ribeye and it was delicious as well.

The only reason this restaurant gets away with charging the prices they do is for the ambiance. I will admit, it's a great experience dining on the top floor of the Omni and the views are outstanding. Our reservation was for four, but we were sat at a table for 8 which didn't provide the intimate experience we would have expected. The food good, but doesn't have the wow factor I'm used to at restaurants charging the same prices.

The service was par for the course these days, I understand the challenges. But we were seated and then forgotten. Then asked to move to another area of the restaurant and provided with the least desirable section of the restaurant. Both steaks were cooked over the medium rare temp, expect a steakhouse to get this right with their eyes closed. Half of the prime ribeye was a subpar cut of beef and could not be eaten. Both sides could have been delicious, but both were extremely dry. Overall, just disappointed with the food. Hopefully the service will improve as people get back to work.

The view is tops in Corpus Christi. The service was outstanding. The drinks were potent and delicious. A small band of piano and bass played beautifully for a wonderful atmosphere. Super clean bathrooms.

The food was good but not great. The wedge salad was very good. The strip steak was OK but overcooked and a little tough from the medium-rare ordered. The Republic shrimp was tasty but not a special meal. Hatch chile mac n cheese was unique and hot. The carrot cake was a very good dessert choice.

The view is probably the best in Corpus Christi. The service was great and our drinks were always full and plates were cleared promptly. The food quality has gone down since the pandemic. The venison tenderloin is as kit as good as it has been in the past. The hatch macaroni and cheese was barely room temperature. The chicken was decent and the steak was ordered medium but came out medium well.

Room is very drafty (three levels) and temp was freezing. Requested a better table. Was a bit better but for our taste way too frigid to enjoy our anniversary.
The manager treated us to a free chocolate mousse. Nice gesture, butt you won’t see me dining there again.
The whole Omni Hotel is very cold. I guess they like it like that.

This is the most over priced steakhouse ever. We have been to some of the best in the country, none of them cost this!

The dinning room on the balcony level was and easy 80 degrees, so uncomfortable!

2 meals came out wrong it was cold.

This was our second time going and I am totally upset and disappointed. Not worth the money.

Steak was over cooked but wife felt bad and did not want to say anything and wait for another one so she just ate it. Restaurant was great overall with lovely view and the live music was an added plus. Our server’s dinner recommendation to me was amazing! with delicious Brussels! The server assistant at our table was friendly with introducing himself. Overall, we enjoyed the experience, except the one detail

Fabulous food and service. Cannot beat the view of the bay. Had the fillet with Oscar sauce (which could have been warmer). Otherwise great meal. The young man helping our server was actually better service than our waiter, Ludwig. Hope they share tips with him.

The location/view is beautiful! The restaurants atmosphere was elegant. The service was excellent. Wine list was very good as well. The filet mignon was great. The chocolate mousse delicious. I had a wedge salad which was also great. If I could leave a little suggestion on the asparagus, it was peeled and therefore had a slick texture that was unappealing and needed seasoning. The mashed potatoes also lacked any seasoning and both were left uneaten. Overall we greatly enjoyed our experience here and would return knowing the side dishes just weren’t for us.

Our waitress was outstanding. Jasmina was attentive. She did seem a little overwhelmed at times though. Seems there were a couple of managers that would have been better served helping the staff instead of both helping the hostess greet guests.

The food and view was top notch. It was a little odd walking through the noisy bar to get to our table in a fine dining establishment. Our server was professional but apparently new. He had to write our order down and was not very attentive. Our busser, on the other hand, was very attentive and a joy. I wish I had gotten his name.

Our anniversary date. They were out of so many items on the menu. We did get a free cake that was vanilla confetti but it was pretty dry. Next time we may call ahead to see what they have.
