Gumbo was not ideal. The roux taste scorched.
Chicken fried lobster was fried too hard.
Lobster Mac was amazing.

Wonderful dishes with a nice atmosphere. Oceanaire 2.0 cocktail drink was amazing choice. My Wife and I use to enjoy Tru Lucks but Oceanaire is our number 1 choice for seafood restaurant. Service was wonderful thank you.

Had a business lunch here and my guests and I all commented on how fresh the fish was, the great atmosphere and the attentive, professional but not intrusive staff. Access is excellent with valet parking at the Westin Galleria. The restaurant is in the lobby. Well done Oceanaire.

Excellent oysters but they were served after the salad. Food quality, although large portions was just average. The Baked Alaska desert was not really a classic baked alaska and a disappointment.

It was for my wife's birthday. It was a great experience From the time we got to the restaurant to the time we left. The Menu's had Happy Birthday across the top on each one of them that my party was using . The service was superb, the food delicious. We do not get to go to this restaurant a lot but every time we go we have not been disappointed. Hope to be back soon, great Job Oceanaire !!!!

After going here for over 15 years, this place is never disappointing. From the time you walk in until you walk out. Great seafood, regardless of what you order. Always Great service, and a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone seems to be paying attention to you without you knowing it. You don't have to wait or ask for anything.

This was my first time there, I was told about Oceanaire. It was more than I had expected. Everything about our evening was excellent. I brought me wife there to celebrate her birthday and the personal touch with the menu was great. Thanks for making it a memorable experience.

Felt the food was way overpriced for what was served. My husband and I paid$130 for a meal which did not include drinks or desserts. We had to pay separately for any vegetables that we wanted to eat with our main entree. At $35 an entree, I definitely expected vegetables to come on the plate, as part of the $35 charge. No wonder we couldn't afford dessert or drinks! I ordered the sunfish and it seemed old, not fresh.

I've been to oceanaire's at many locations, including Washington DC and Baltimore. The service here was well standards, including the preparation of the food. Hosts and servers not on par with prices, including service at the bar. Seek new management

Waiter seemed disinterested in our table even though there were five of us. There were numerous long pauses where he did not check in with us. It was 10-15 minutes before we ever saw him to start the service. Then he’d be at another table and rush by without even looking at us. We would have ordered additional drinks had he come by more often. And we were going to order dessert but by the time he came by to check on us we’d waited too long and just wanted to leave. Very disappointing. Worse service I’ve had there in many visits.

Had the lobster tonite and it was very good however our waiter was not at all. We sat upstairs tonite and it was not a pleasant experience. Our waiter was very slow and when the lobster came out it wasn't cleaned since I had to ask for crackers which is fine but it took a good 10 minutes and then he forgot the fork and then the extra bowl and I had to put the extra shell pieces in my husband's plate. But when he asked if we wanted dessert we didn't get a chance to answer before he was off to the next table. Then to top it off he gave us the wrong bill and that took another 10 mins. He was an older waiter so I assumed he would be good. Wrong! So disappointing because I use to love this place!!

My go to Seafood Restaurant in Dallas - perhaps the country - and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is blessed with so many outstanding seafood Restuarant’s.

Oceanaire claim they fly their seafood in daily, and I believe them.

If you want to splurge, go for the (16oz!) Halibut T Bone. Yes, a “T-Bone”! Who knew? It is the most fantastic piece of “meat” I have ever eaten. And yes, there is a T bone.

Love this Restuarant and the Staff. A 10.

Not your typical hotel restaurant. Good selection of seafood. I had shellfish combo - shrimp and lobster were excellent. Scallops weren't as big or as well cooked as some other places.
I don't mind spending good money for good food, but my meal was over $100 (including a glass of wine). Not quite that good.

The food was very good and the overall ambiance of the restaurant is really cool so good for a special occasion. We were disappointed, however, that nothing special was done for our anniversary that we were celebrating. Maybe the policy changed because it was different in past years when it was acknowledged.

I had a party of 4 Saturday night. Have to say the wait service was not my best experience. I am sure he wanted us to have time to talk and review the menu. However, the times between visits to the table were inordinate which made it difficult to order more than one round of beverages.


The other matter that was extremely frustrating was the valet. I realize the hotel runs the valet for both the drop off and pick up was tortuous.

The food is always fresh and they have simple and innovative ways of preparing seafood. The portions are HUGE so count on taking food home. The bread pudding that we got to share between 2 people could've easily fed 6. But we were happy to take it home with us. The entire wait staff was very attentive and our waiter's recommendations were spot on for us. We went because of the half-price wine bottles offered to Landry's members. It gave us another reason to go dine at Oceanaire!

Waiter was awesome! Only comment would be that the strawberry rubarb cobbler/crisp had VERY little fruit. It was mainly crumble.

Otherwise ... all excellent!

The idea of the personalized name on the menu for a special event is great!!

This was an amazing experience! I am so glad I found this for my friend from out of town who has strict dietary needs. We were both thrilled with our lunch. I had been there many years ago, but had not visited in the past 5 or 6 years. The menu has a lot of variety that should please everyone. I decided to join Landry's Select Club, since we live nearby and we like many of the restaurants I the group. The benefits appear to be perfect for our needs. My husband and I will be visiting Oceanaire many times, I'm sure.
