It's old school seafood and service.

It's old school seafood and service. The bar is beautiful and will make you feel as if you've stepped onto the set of Mad Men.

Not bad

I went to eat here for a dinner because my boyfriend and I had been super curious about the place. He's not a seafood lover, but he managed to find himself a good meal, which was a steak.

The host was okay. she wasn't smiling, or anything and she looked bored doing her job. Our server was nice, but he did forget some of our drinks and food that we told him to get three times in a row.

The food was okay, but it didn't hit the right spot for me. I appreciate every single bite of a delicious meal, and if the first bite wasn't right, I intend to lose my appetite.

Overall, it was a decent experience. Nothing too great, but nothing too bad. Might still go back, but will not be on my top choice.

Never again

My children took me there for mother's day dinner. To start, no bottled water, only tap water. We ask for wine, and never arrived. I noticed that when people where seated, they were offered bread and something else, that we were not offered. To top it off, when we asked for coffee and sugar, they were out of sugar. But the bill was right out with the cup of coffee, which I took as Please pay and go, No more service for you. I WILL NEVER GO BACK.

OK food ruined by horrible service

We were there around a little over week ago for a friend's farewell dinner because we read and heard good things about this place. The waiter recommended a yellowfin tuma dish to us and said that this dish is a fav at the place and that it came with a seaweed salad as a side. Around 30 minutes later, dinner was served but the salad was not on the plate with the tuna. We thought the side might come on a separate plate. Till the end of that night, it never appeared. We asked him where the salad was and that we had been waiting for it. To our surprise, he said that it was just a small side salad and that we would not count on that to get full. Come on, we did not get to Oceanaire just to get full. Even if we paid $40 dollars for that dish and no matter how small the salad is supposed to be, it was not there. Then he came up with another excuse that the kitchen must have run out of it the time we ordered. Isn't it your duty to let the customer know? Throughout the whole process, he did not even ask if we need anything for substitution. Therefore, we weren't even surprised when he brought the check a little after--full price and no discount offered. We spoke with the manager about the whole thing. His first reaction was that he was surprised that the kitchen would even have run out things like seaweed salad. Then he asked if the waiter had offered anything for substitution. When told no, he said sorry and did not offer anything to make up for that. We understand that people make mistakes. We understand, too, that there could be many ""shoulds"" we could have done that night. But we expect a highly-rated middle-high-end seafood place like Oceanaire would know how to respond to their mistakes. Apparently, we were wrong.

All Done With Smoke and Mirrors

We joined friends of ours here lately, to celebrate a Birthday dinner. I have to admit that the decor is enticing, the view of Westheimer at sunset is sublime, and the formally dressed waiters are impressive. However, I was not thrilled to ordere what was supposed to be ""Carolina whole stuffed flounder"" at $30, only to receive a plate with about 3 oz of fish with a tablespoon of dressing hiding underneath it. Come on guys! Flounder sells for $3.19 per pound right by me out here in Seabrook, across from the Kemah bridge. I immediately had them take the plate back, and ordered the steak filet with lobster tail. It was a much better option, which I learned the hard way. Knowing wha to order here, can save you some grief. However, overall, the portions are small compared to the prices. Good wine selection, and great baked Alaska for dessert, helped make up for the disappointments with the main courses. They definitely need a ""reality check"" with the price vs. portion sizes. ......Glad we live out by Kemah, where seafood is plentiful, delicious and cheap.

Roller Coaster Ride

I've read so many up and down, ""roller-coaster"" reviews of this place, I think everyone has scared me away from trying it. Why is it so hard to find good, fresh, reasonable priced seafood in a city that is so close to the Gulf?! Plus, I don't know if i need my fish to fly first class to Houston, requiring me to pay a premium price for a plate of fish, when the best fish from the Gulf is less than 50 miles away from Houston.

Ridiculously bad

Went with a group of six. Drinks/wine were blatantly overpiced by at least 30%. Service was passable but our orders were all wrong. Appetizers were bland. Everyone's order had something wrong. I think they have to try to be that bad. Food was okay but could have gotten better almost anywhere for this price. Not a good value or worth ever visiting again. And the chairs were uncomfortable. All in all, one of my worst experience anywhere, ever.
