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.

    The food is always top notch. This lunch was unfortunately met with many bugs - flies were swarming at the front moon booth. The heat was immense after requesting the air conditioning to be turned on.

    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.

    6 of us were dining at Liberty Kitchen at San Felipe location. We were seated quickly in a booth. Our waiter Gustavo was quick to greet us and ask for drink orders. He was efficient, funny, knowledgeable and timely. It was excellent service! The manager came by our table 2x to thank us for our patronage and inquire about the service and food. Both were excellent! We highly recommend eating at This establishment. The snapper with lobster mashed potatoes was delicious! A great time had by all!

    This is my 6th or 7th time to LK. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston. The last two times we were there, Jason was our culinary guide. He stands out in my mind for making these experiences particularly special -- he knows the menu, describes the evening specials in delicious detail and helps pair the wine. You should ask for him! The manager came by our table last night and was lovely as well. We love their east coast oysters, and discovered the tuna tartare -- delicious! We split a nice blue cheese wedge salad and went with the sautéed redfish which was perfectly prepared and served to the table steaming hot! And the cocktails are always nicely done! Check this place out, but don't tell everybody ... I like being able to get in!

    We are giving our first experience at the Liberty Kitchen on San Felipe Road 3 Stars for the following reasons. 1. We did not receive our full order even though we asked for it a second time. We were charged for everything we ordered even though we did not receive everything. 2. There was a hair in two different dishes. When we discovered the first hair in our appetizer we mentioned something to the gentleman who brought the food to our table. Nothing more was said to us. We when received our entrees one of the entrees also had a hair on the plate. We were with a special guest and did not want to escalate the situation so we did not address the issues any further while dining. However, we called the restaurant the next day and spoke with Linda about our experience and she said that she would have corporate call us back. No one called. We then called the restaurant again two days later and spoke with Ashley and she assured us that she would send us an email with some feedback by the end of the day. Once again, we did not hear back from anyone. Both Linda and Ashley stated that they were managers. We spent roughly $220 and would have expected a better experience and response. Definitely an unfortunate experience at THIS location!!

    My third time and this time I invited friends and we all had an amazing time. We loved the lobster bites and crab balls appetizers. And for main dish I had the tuna mignon which is one of the best I’ve ever had. We finished dinner with the key lime pie. Our server Jason was phenomenal and gave us good recommendations on wine pairing for our food.
