the food was expensive and definitely not worth it. everything we ordered was void of taste the cesar salad no taste, pecan crusted chicken no taste, crab burger to mushy and needed salt, the sauteed vegetables way over cooked and just plain mushy kinda felt like i was eating cooked spinach ( i hate spinach) and they took forever!!! to get are food the restaurant wasnt even half full i think there were more of the staff there then acutal pay customers... just not happy on of the worst places ive ever been i didnt even wwant to give it the star it has lol

I've been attending Danton's Sunday Blues Brunches for the past few weeks listening to great master bluesmen practicing their craft over the best gumbo in the city. Their Courtbullion is one of the best I've ever had as well and we always finish off with their great bread pudding.
In the evenings it's a quiet romantic place to have dinner with your sweetie as well.
If you're thinking about going to Danton's for some good seafood, I highly recommend it.

My husband and I attended the great Lamar High School 60th reunion celebration at Danton's. The buffet luncheon was delicious complete with gumbo, fried oysters, okra and tomatoes and bread pudding! Our thanks to Kyle and Danton!

My family and I just moved Houston and had been wanting to try some good seafood. Never having lived near water the idea of having fresh caught fish and oysters sounded too good to be true. A coworker recommended we try Dantons and said we should ask for Amanda, she is always their server and they love her personality and great service. After going all I could do was say THANK YOU to my friend. Both the restaurant and the service were unbelievable. The fish was so fresh and the way they grill it, that chef definately knows what he's doing ! And Amanda gave us service to remember, she was more than happy to answer all of our questions and even offered advice on some sites to see around town. We will definately be back and will pay it forward by spreading the word !

The best oysters in Houston. Monday nights, they are also the best deal in Houston as they slash prices in their oyster bar. So, yes, run, don't walk, if you are an oyster fan. But the menu is so diverse, unique and soul-warming that it is often hard to choose. Our favorites include Kyle's Crab Salad (greens tossed with remoulade and bacon, then topped with big fat chunks of fresh lump crab and a cluster of skinny fried sweet potato strings); wood grilled fresh fish (available in 1/2 size orders!); the rich brothy gumbo roux (into which shrimp, crab and oysters are tossed to cook just prior to serving); and the crab and cheese stuffed jalapenos. Whenever we visit, however, we are tortured by the non-seafood options, particularly the T-Wayne Boy sandwich (sliced pork sausage on french bread with red onion and creole mustard), the best sandwich around. Oh, and the debris. Ordering is an impossible task made easier over a cold glass of chardonnay or a frosty martini, and the knowledge we can always come back next week and order what we missed today. This is one of our very favorite places in Houston to dine.
I am a seafood fanatic and I must say that the dishes at Danton's are not just good, they are the best. I cant remember a time that I have been able to go out with my friends like this and have them all get something they really enjoyed. I always have that one friend that sends his dishes back and this time he didn't. Our waiter, Alex, was excellent, really first rate. The oyster bar is also another really nice feature to this restaurant. You can go in there and catch the big game while eating your favorite seafood.
I have been to Danton's three times now, and each time I've had an all around GREAT dining experience. The staff has always been friendly and attentive from the second I walk in the front door. The servers and bartenders are very knowledgable about the food and drinks, and are friendly, which is something I experience less and less these days. Our server last time, Tara, made our experience exceptional!! The food here is just divine. I haven't had anything I didn't like. And I LOVE Monday nights, because the Oyster Bar has half price oysters and pretty good happy hour prices!!!! This is a great place to take a group of friends or business associates. It is sure to impress.
