Seafood
Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette (LKRO) prides itself in it’s Oyster Bar. The multiple use seating at and around the Oysterette is inviting and friendly. The huge oyster, fresh seafood and whole fish display showcases seasonality and the vastness of the seafood offerings at LKRO. A traditional Japanese Robata Grill and a vertical 'Trompo' Grill are part of the Oysterette’s flexibility in a small space making the 'mini-kitchen' capable of producing freshly shucked oysters, grilled oysters, sushi, seafood towers and fresh carved tacos.

Moving into the main kitchen, the menu is just as wide and deep with a variety of local and regional seafood dishes and local Texas Beef. Our desire, as always, is to have a little something delicious for everyone and a menu for every palate as well as daily and weekly special features inspired by the bounty of available produce, meats and seafood in the Gulf Coast and beyond.

    Surprisingly nice location considering it is in a strip mall next to a dry cleaner. No parking so you have to valet - it's "free" with tip suggested. Our appetizers were very good and the drinks were decent. Our main courses were solid - one of the fish specials was not great but everything else was very good. It's pricey but overall a good experience and worth the visit.

    Oysters on the deviled eggs were cold and under cooked. Charbroiled oysters were dry and over cooked and had much too much parmesan cheese. The "Chesapeake crab balls" not only had a horrible smell to them they tasted bad as well and were sent back to the kitchen. The jumbo poached shrimp were flavorless and needed help from all of the sauces provided. The truffle fries were excellent. Lynn, "manager on duty", visited our table and attempted a service recovery, but that fell short of our expectations when she revealed that the crab balls actually contained imitation crab meat in them. It leaves one to wonder what other imitation ingredients were used.

    Worst service. Seared tuna should not be white on color. Why are you serving me food that is obviously over cooked? Then you drop the plate and never come back to the table? This is a problem.

    SPECTACULAR ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I don’t think it’s fair to say the service was just excellent — it exceeded our standards on every level. We felt SEEN, HEARD, and so well taken care of. David helped us on our first brunch visit, Oscar on our second brunch visit the very next day. They were warm, kind, welcoming, and made the entire experience, from start to finish, just perfect. The support team who backed them up were the same caliber of kind and wonderful. Many kudos. The food — come oooooon! Comfortable fine dining at its very best. Flavors and textures and presentation would have made us feel wildly underdressed if we hadn’t also felt so completely welcomed and at-home. We will be talking about this place for a very long time and will be returning from Vermont as soon as we possibly can!

    Everything we had was fantastic! Farm Table App - delicious and plentiful; Deviled eggs - fantastic and I will order it again! I also got the shrimp and grits even though it wasn't on the menu, they were gracious enough to make it. The shrimp was very fresh and well made! The grits were cheesy with a tad sweet. Can not wait to go to this place again and try all the different oysters!

    Felt rushed; second course was brought out before we finished first course. The second course was not good at all. It was called avocado toast. It was hard raisin bread (could not cut with a knife ) with a teaspoon of avocado spread on it covered in shredded lettuce with a couple of small tomatoes. There was bacon on the top, which was good. I was so disappointed to have spent that money, including tax and 20% tip. Houston restaurant week is designed for people to try new restaurants hoping for repeat business. This did not work in this case. I have no desire to return.

    Food was okay, one dish was undercooked, and the two others weren’t super flavorful. Alfredo sauce seemed watered down and had to send the fish back to finish cooking. Appetizers and drinks were good. The waiter was very nice and the atmosphere was super cute.

    The service was horrible along with the drinks and food. The cocktail tasted like cough syrup. Order another drink and was talk after 20 minutes they didn’t have it. The server acted like he couldn’t hear anything we said and never offered to have a manager come speak to us about all the issues we were having during the meal. I would not go back nor recommend to anyone.

    This remains my favorite restaurant in Houston. The dishes are so creative and the quality of the food is outstanding. It's a bit pricey, but for me is worth the experience. The waiter was very nice but seemed rushed. He stopped by to see if we were ok, but each time, he rushed off before really being assured that we didn't need anything. The last time my husband and I dined there, the waiter was patient, took the time to describe the dishes, made food suggestions, and answered our questions thoroughly. Nonetheless, it is an establishment that I would recommend wholeheartedly.

    Every Entree is done with care and this is the Best Fried Shrimp, bar none, in Houston, and don't miss the grilled oysters. The simple is not so simple and it is not only a great presentation but the salad and dressing is fantastic. I doubt there is a dish you could go wrong with and know, save room for dessert, especially the best Bread Pudding in Town, just wonderful, and we do share one every time we go to Liberty Kitchen. The Service is outstanding as well. Thank Liberty Kitchen for another memorable dinner.
