It was a great experience our server was amazing ♥️
Seating was fast, drinks came quickly, and food came at a good time. Everyone ran out of drinks before our meal was done and didn’t get refills till after we were done eating. Desserts were very limited 3 to choose from. Waiter checked on us once, just after the meal was served, but had to call him to the table to get refills and dessert order. 2 people in our party got sick from the food. For the price we payed, I don’t think we’ll be back. Very disappointing and very poor service.
May favorite place for family events and holidays
I absolutely love Downtown Aquarium restaurant. It is absolutely beautiful and the food and drinks are incredible 😍
The atmosphere, service and food were amazing!! Definitely I would go back.
Great experience. Everything was great especially the service.
It was a sight to see the fish were a fun attraction and tasty to 😬
Such an amazing experience can’t wait to come back!
Spent before I knew it, $500! The tickets offered a lot of rides with the bands but the bands didnt include the other things too... and there really wasn’t a lot of rides. So not really worth the value cause the rides weren’t too exciting anyway. I’d like to see something that gave a special for the other activities and/or rides and petting area. Great with customer service but terrible for your pockets.
Family friendly and staff knowledge about fish in aquarium.
Food and restaurant were good. Parking was chaotic.
Was definitely for small children. Wouldn't recommend for older children or adults only. The restaurant food was good but highly overpriced. Cost $200 for 6 of us to eat and 4 people had hamburgers.
I feel like they could do a better job with the food they provide. Most of that food i can get for $8 at a regular seafood restaurant. The fried shrimp was salty and the gumbo was not good. The atmosphere and the tanks are beautiful. That part i loved about the restaurant. I would redo the menu if I was the Chef.
Our server was very nice and helpful on trying to figure out what we wanted to eat. The food was just ok. The fried food tasted either frozen or the oil was old. The food definitely was over priced. I understand that we were there for the experience but way over priced. I would recommend the aquarium so you could have the experience but not the food!
Great service and friendly staff. Great food and Atmosphere!!
Great place to my celebrate my birthday. Food was outstanding.
The service was great, we bought tickets for the aquarium and then went to restaurant afterwards. I had no issues with check in. I was happy with the seating we got. Actually the seat was so great!! It was just me and my husband and they gave us a big booth! I normally do not like the regular tables but didn’t request anything specific in the notes, so that was so perfect! The plate I ordered was good overall just there was a stuffed shrimp that I did not care for at all it was too mushy. It came with shrimp, tilapia, scallops, pico de Gallo avocado, green beans. It was so much food that we could have just shared that plate as we are small eaters, but we wanted to try a bit of things. Our favorite thing was the bacon wrapped shrimp. Which is called shrimp kisses. We ordered a gumbo soup which was ok but I would not order it again I felt it was a a bit plain maybe if the sausage was roasted before they put it in the soup it would give it a kick. I also had ordered a virgin margarita, and my husband got a non alcoholic beer we were happy with them having those options because we no longer drink. Overall the experience was wonderful and we had a great time. I think I would go back but I don’t think I will order from the entree menu just because the portions were so much for me again that is just us, that is a good thing! Because this means they give a great amount of food that is worth your money. I would be satisfied with eating the appetizers so I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun place to eat with a hint of elegance. They were all so friendly and the experience is something you will never forget, please do not hesitate on going. They have prices for everyone on the menu. Plan in advance and make a trip your family or children will thank you later and it will forever be a beautiful memory that you guys will always remember. Thank you so much to the staff for making our date night a wonderful experience. I will never forget it.
We loved the whole experience. We are new to Texas and this placed helped my kids feel happy to be here .
I honestly had the best time of my life with my family with that being my first time at any aquarium I enjoyed myself and I hope to be back very soon thank you all.
Server was a dick. Neverless, I had to remind him it was my wife's birthday. And he said, ohh I they just told me. General Manager gave my wife a 25.00 gift card then came and said ohh wrong person. What is wrong with these people. I guess Covid, got them on something else. I felt not being serve or treated as a guest. Won't even go back or recommend family or friends. Go else where!!!
Service was excellent.. Lobster tail and steak a little small, Other then that it was great..
Everyone claim to be the best concerning the taste of there signature dishes. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the delicious taste of the food.The waiting staff was very professional and attentive to our needs.... The getting staff was also professional and inviting..coupled with the overall accomodations of the aquarium, thank you for making my family's experience a memorable experience.
Muy lindo, puedes ver todo tipo de peces desde tu mesa, la decoración fantástica, los baños muy cómodos. En general el lugar es ideal para estar con tu familia y disfrutar de una tarde increíble
This was my family’s first time visiting the Houston Aquarium and we knew we wanted to eat at the restaurant also so I booked reservations for a party of 7. Booking online was fast and easy, we were seated exactly at our reserved time. The service and food were great!
We had a very good time it was my daughter's birthday and the waitress was very nice and brought us and cake and sing happy birthday for her we really enjoyed it
It was a great experience. We have always wanted to visit , but there was always a long wait. No complaints here!!! Definetly will be returning.
Waiter wasn’t the best took very long to take our order and hardly came to our table to check up at one moment she stated that she had just gone to bathroom
Downtown aquarium highly recommended !! Great food and service
Our waiter was s amazing and the kids had. A great time
Great service and great food a little bit too expensive for the type of food but that’s ok
Took my kiddos out for a special treat. We enjoyed it! Thanks!
Very nice establishment. Great experience and the staff was welcoming. Great place to take your kids.
We were visitors from Detroit, MI. We loved everything. Waiter was very welcoming. Our experience was great. We will definitely be returning.
Good place and wonderful service can't wait to go back
I love this restaurant amazing food and amazing staff. Our server was nice and friendly, I would rate this a 10 out of 10
Loved the food and the energy at the restaurant very beautiful inside and out ! Highly recommended for others to go !
It was really yummy and the lady took great care of us :)
I feel like the dining experience is better than the overall aquarium. I would not buy a ticket to the aquarium, but I would definitely go back to the restaurant. The service was fantastic! The food was yummy and being able to see the tank was nice.
Great service and great food! Really enjoyed our dining experience!
