    We came for lunch and were greeted and seated immediately. The restaurant was beautiful with decor in shades of blue and lampshades made to resemble shells. Our server was attentive but not overbearing and was able to assist with food choices. The food was hot and fresh and my branzino was delicious. We will be back.

    The building is very nice. The area, once construction ceases should be nice also. Most of the food is good, but not worth what they charge for it. Not sure what the deal was with the waiter. Not the kind of service I would expect from a place with such high end prices. I might recommend ouzo Bay, but with an expense caveat.

    We visited during the HRW. First of all, to avoid the dining crowd, we made the reservation for 6pm and the restaurant was 10% full at the time. Although the wait staff was friendly, we just didn’t feel there was much service. The wait staff poured water for us, poured and dripped at the same time, didn’t even bother to wipe it clean until I mentioned it the third time. Was slow to refill the water and pick up trash (torn paper from the straw…) Food was ok, not impressed enough for the $$ Now Should we give it a second chance?

    My husband and I decided to stop by for dinner in between chauffeuring our kids to their evening activities. From the moment we stepped in to the time we finished dinner, everything was delivered with excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and beverages. We had the Kampachi crudo, watermelon salad, mussels in white wine, and the braised lamb shank. So delicious! Ouzo Bay is definitely on our top list of seafood/Mediterranean restaurants in Houston.

    The food does not have authentic Greek flavors and things are not made as well as they should be. For example, baklava is much better with pistachios than walnuts. Spanakopita is much better with less spinach, as this version seems more like a spinach pie.

    This review will be the most difficult one I have ever written for two reasons. This was our first time at this restaurant. The restaurant is very well appointed. Absolutely loved the decor and the music. We had a very difficult time ordering wine because there isn’t a sommelier and nobody knew a thing about wine. When you’re offering such an extensive wine list, especially with Greek wines someone should be knowledgeable. We picked a good Greek wine after an hour of fumbling through the list. We started with the watermelon salad, lamb meatballs and grape leaves. I am of Greek descent and I have never had such delicious dishes in my life. We had branzino and broccolini for our entre and it was also very tasty. The second reason I’m having difficulty writing this is because while the server and manager couldn’t be nicer they are both very green in the industry. I felt very frustrated. I’m not sure if I will go back or not. When I go for fine dining I expect a certain level of service and was disappointed.

    We celebrated a birthday with a group of 7 (be aware that they do not allow balloons at tables). Our server did a good job taking care of us, and the decor is outstanding. The manager checked on us and offered a toast/dessert at the end. Overall the food was ok especially for the price. My husband ate half of his calamari as it was chewy and soggy. Scallops had a good flavor but the steaks were so so. Based on prices, we think this place needs to pay as much attention to the food as they did the decor, and it would be fantastic.

    My friends and I came here to celebrate a birthday. My reservation was outside, but due to the Texas heat we decided to change to a table inside. This was our first time here so I didn’t have any idea what I wanted to order. After perusing the menu, we started with the ceviche. It was ok, but I would have preferred the fish to be chopped into smaller pieces, and it could have used a bit more lime juice. I like a tangy ceviche and this one just didn’t hit the spot. For our main course, I decided on the crab cakes and watermelon salad. One friend ordered the snapper with the crab and jalapeño topping, and a side of broccolini. The other decided on the eggplant and prawns. When the watermelon salad arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful presentation. However, that was only the beginning. This was quite possibly the best watermelon salad I’ve ever tasted. The saltines of the feta paired extremely well with the basil and sweet watermelon. I don’t recall tasting balsamic, which is usually served with this salad. Regardless, whatever it was dressed with worked!!! Chef’s kiss!!! The crab cakes were equally delicious. Very little filling and lots of lump crab. My friend ordered the

    My only issue is that the restaurant and restrooms have lighting that makes the area extra hot and with all of the heat coming in from the outside, one can feel the discomfort. I felt overheated and didn't stay longer because I was not comfortable and we were close to the bar area. I am also unhappy because the hostess did a terrible job and did not acknowledge my Open Table reservation and she was kind of flip in her attitude. The service attendants were remarkable. I will come back later in the fall when it is cooler.

    This was my first restaurant walk-out of the year so that's never good. I canceled my meal and left after appetizers due to a service disagreement with management, who explained to me that the customer isn't always right. Oh no? If they treat Open Table VIPs like this, I wonder what treatment others are getting. Great managers find a way to say yes to clients. We'll see where things go from here. Do they offer delivery? I hope so. Service there adds no value.
