Amazing, amazing, amazing! The food was amazing, the decor was amazing, the aquarium was amazing! I am so thrilled I got to experience such a unique experience. I have never ate at a restaurant even remotely close to this and wow it was such an awesome experience. We had stumbled across this restaurant by fluke and had no idea what... More

Fun place for everyone. Huge aquariums can be viewed from every table. Beautiful under water feeling. A bit pricey for a large family but the food is very good. Amusement rides are excellent, especially the underwater part of the train ride. The views puff downtown Houston from the ferris wheel are lovely at night.

We went to the restaurant upstairs after viewing the exhibit downstairs. Very cool decor, nice staff. Food was pretty good, but not amazing. Bayou pasta was good, the andoullie in it was low quality. Hot dogish, sauce was good. We got the crab dip as an appetizer. It was like rotelle with crab meat. Ice cream sandwich was really good,... More

The restaurant was half full and there were plenty of staff but the service was slow and we had to wait for ages to get the bill. The menu was varied and fresh with plenty of salads even if a little pricey around $17 for a caesar salad with chicken. The air conditioning was also really cold meaning we had... More

The great service and the personal attention that Chef paid to our daughter, a celiac, who could not have any foods made with or cross contaminated with wheat. Chef came out to our table and consulted with her about her meal and ensured that the order was written down precisely. This personal service alone would bring us back and recommend... More

Took the family for a fun day at the Aquarium and had dinner at the restaurant. I have to say this is one of the better places that we have been to. The food is great, the atmosphere is absolutely wonderful with fish tanks all around and Houston downtown in view, and the service is first class. Three reasons why... More

We ate here on a Saturday at lunch. It wasn't too crowded as we thought it might be. There was a children's birthday party right next to our table, but we asked to move and they where happy to handle our request. The food was great and very classy. The scenery while eating was very neat as there are aqurjums... More

Of course the food is a little expensive - it is a destination, not just a restaurant. It is very similar to Rainforest Café in that respect and in the menu. However, unlike Rainforest's unique experience and décor, Aquarium is like a very classy, upscale restaurant - good lighting, modern décor, nice music, etc. - it just happens to have... More

Coming from Louisiana for a quick mini vacation with an 8 year old and 18 month old. We used City pass and paid the extra discounted cost for the ride bracelet. If you go here you must do the whole experience. Including the train ride though the shark tunnel. We ate dinner upstairs and the kids really enjoyed that. The... More
