11:30am – 5pm
Oceanaire is a
seafood restaurant situated right on Westheimer Road at the Galleria Mall. It
was voted one of the best seafood restaurants in the country, so I was excited
to finally try it. It has a clean, sophisticated, open environment. The facility
has large windows facing Westheimer Road, and they’re able to draw in lots of
natural light into the restaurant. Their tables are a mix between round and
rectangular, all draped with a white cloths. The natural light coming into the
restaurant just makes everything look exceptional.
What I Ate:
Sorry I couldn’t get
pictures of the dishes, but I’m sure you can find some on Instagram.
We ordered 2
appetizers, the Spicy Ahi Tuna Tower and the Fried Red Chili Calamari with warm
I’m usually not a
fan of raw meats(bad experiences) but the Ahi Tuna was pretty tasty, the
mixture of the ingredients distracted from the raw fish. The Calamari was the
best I’ve ever had; it was topped with what I believe were red and green bell peppers, onions and a
chili sauce. So. So. Delicious. That is all I have to say.
Moving on to the
main course; I wanted to eat something that had seafood and a small portion ( I
was having dessert later). After contemplating like I usually do, I decided to
get the Fish Taco(it’s actually 2 tacos) with a side of fries and Asparagus. The
food was so good, but what made it better was the exceptional service that our waiter
gave us. He was EXTREMELY polite and well mannered.
This restaurant goes
down as one of my favorites. It leans over to the pricy side, but it is definitely
worth it. Food, Service, Ambiance- Exceptional!
