SaltAir Seafood Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

uncomfortably cold they did turn off ac as everyone was complaining, BUT they said they could not turn on heat as it was not working? Had Shrimp Lobster salad.... just ok.... not a pretty presentation at all....just all thrown on plate. Two very small rolls were brought to the table. we had to request two more. I was not impressed and disappointed as I was treating a friend for her birthday. They brought cotton candy to table with sparkler... a great idea for a 10 year old... not for adults.

The last review I wrote for SaltAir was glowing. We used to love this place. The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because the restaurant still curates quality seafood, especially the PEI oysters. We started with the cold seafood platter that I remember looking more like a tower in the past, and we added an additional half dozen oysters. The quality of the raw bar mix was still very good, but I would appreciate fewer shells in the crab salad. Our warm appetizer and main course arrived at the same time. The saffron fettuccine had no saffron flavor, and while I appreciate that saffron is expensive, this was a child's butter pasta dish. The lobster bisque was tasty but not a cream bisque, and that's okay. Dessert was extremely disappointing. The flavor of the peanut butter dessert still reminds me of the original dish that was on the menu in the beginning, but this dish is a far cry from the same quality. It was one of my husband's all-time favorites and it's really changed. I ordered the pot de creme, and dessert I used to dream about. It's not at all right. The old one was perfect, creamy, half way between a mousse and a custard. What I had tonight was bread-like--spongy--and dry. Not at all a pot de creme. Service was mediocre. The waiter was not knowledgeable about the food and not attentive. We were excited about going back and I was surprised to find reservations on short notice. But now I know why. While all the other good restaurants in Houston were out of tables tonight SaltAir had quit a few empty for walk-ins. With all the great options for food in Houston we've decided that we won't be going back. It's worth it to exercise a little quality control and consistency. Not everyone in this town appreciates it when a good restaurant cuts corners smoother than a Landry's Corp restaurant.

Great place if you like seafood but are not a big eater. There are so many delicious items on the raw bar and many appetizers to choose from. All the food was yummy and our service was excellent. So many servers working together makes for a great experience. I must add, the salads and dinner choices are numerous and varied, we just "filled up" on the starters! Be sure to try it, if you have not already dined there!

This was our first time at Saltair Seafood. We dined there before attending a musical in downtown Houston. Our server was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. The other staff members were very attentive. We all had the red snapper, which was delicious. Two of us had the wedge salad, which was somewhat plain compared to others that we have had elsewhere. Our son had the lobster bisque, which he enjoyed. We will definitely return.

Service was excellent. The restaurant was not very busy and staff were attentive. Food was average. The Cesar salad was tasteless. Had the lobster salad and it was average. Crab pasta was good, with fresh pasta. We didn't order from the brunch menu, but I saw others with their brunch items, which looked very good.

Probably won't go back. During pre-dinner drinks, our table of 9 was informed by the waiter that two of the whiskeys that were ordered were gone after serving only one drink. It was early enough that they could have gone out to get a couple bottles since customers were drinking them. When food was served, plates were all given to wrong people. Service was not organized well at all. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. Nice ambiance.

We went here with a group of couples and had a great time. The wine list is very good and is reasonably priced. We had the seafood tower appetizer, which was expensive ($100) but delicious. The grilled lobster tail, and redfish on the halfshell were also hits, as well as the sides of carrots, asparagus and baby bok choy. We will definitely be back.

I had the red snapper. It was very fresh and simply prepared (pan seared). It was excellent. The best that I've had in a long time. My wife had the grilled shrimp with asparagus. It was perfectly grilled and very tasty. Overall, the ambiance and service was very enjoyable. We will be back.

Happy Birthday Kirsten -- We visited on a Saturday night for my daughter's 50th birthday (Which was actually on Monday 12/26) . She was visiting from Omaha and was looking for some very good sea food. We took her to SaltAir as we were very familiar with the food and service. We had Tune , Redfish and Scallops - -all were done to perfection. She was most please as she tweeted as we drove away and looked at the Christmas lights in River Oaks.

The restaurant is lovely. Service was good. The food was fine, not out of the ordinary. My issue with Salt Air is the price point. It is too expensive for what is offered. If you are into caviar and raw oysters you might have a different take on this restaurant. For scallops, shrimp, crab and fish, its good but there are places where you can get the same fare that are as good or better for less money.

My husband and I wanted to try SaltAir for some time and made a reservation for Friday evening. The noise level was noticeably high and we were seated opposite one another at a skinny table at one of the long upholstered benches . To make up for the narrowness, the skinny tables were sooo long and we were so far apart that we almost needed to text one another to communicate. Since it was our first time dining there, we didn't make a fuss, but it made the very good food a lot less appreciated. Other couples were seated at normal tables for four. This would be the only way we'd return.

Food was quite good and the wait staff were nearly perfect. There when we needed them but not hovering. Probably will not go back however because we like to converse and the noise level is almost unbearable. Good for young people and a bar crowd, not so pleasant if you want to talk.

We've read about SaltAir in the Houston Chronicle, which has reported on it extensively. The menu looked tempting so we tried it. We were sadly disappointed after having high hopes. The tuna poke tasted like it had been stored too long in the refrigerator. Any traditional poke seasoning was so subdued it was almost nonexistent. We actually wondered if someone forgot to prepare it. Garlic spaghetti was very good, but something you can get almost anywhere. All in all, probably won't give this another try.

This reservation was for my wife and two guests. They arrived a few minutes late. When they arrived, the hostess was very rude because they were late. The restaurant was less than half full. They were very disappointed in the way the hostess treated them. The rest of the dining experience was great, as usual.

Food was okay...waitress came by way too often. She clearly wanted to take our order and get us out as quickly as possible. The water guy also came by so often it was annoying. This is NOT a place to have a relaxing dinner.

Service was prompt. The Belvedere Vodka martini was nice and cold and choices for the type of olive. I had the best Lobster Bisque, my husband had a good salad. Our entrees were good but not spectacular. Not a special event type of restaurant, but we did enjoy the evening and the noise level wasn't super quiet but we were able to carry on a conversation easily. We will be back.

Had the surf & turf and 1lb of the alaskan king crab legs... Everything was cooked and prepared as ordered. Our server and staff attended to us greatly. It was an unusually slow night though for the restaurant as a whole - but that was to our benefit! Bar seating looking cozy and fun.
Can definitely see us coming back for drinks/appetizers while sitting at the bar.
