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.

    Arrived at 10:20 for a 10:30 reservation, and was promptly seated. Not too busy initially, but probably 15 minutes in, two large groups came in, yet the wait staff was super attentive and timely with going over the menu and getting our items out to us promptly. My husband enjoyed the chicken-fried rib eye, and I had the chicken sausage and kale frittata. Our arrived Jamie checked on us often, but was not overly so. He was also very pleasant and helpful.

    Overall experience was ok. Food was very good. Service could have been better. Waiter did not refill water in a timely manner. Waiter seemed to have forgotten about us once we didn’t order desert. What shocked us the most was the pricing of the special. We ordered shrimp scallops risotto and it was $70 which I thought was very pricey for just shrimp and scallops in my opinion.

    Our first trip to Houston, but had received multiple recommendations to eat at Liberty Kitchen, and we were not disappointed. Oscar was a fantastic server, who asked all of the right questions to help us make great choices for cocktails, appetizers and dinner. We started with double smoked Old Fashioneds. Wow! Snazzy table side presentation of additional smoke poured over the perfectly balanced whiskey with scorched orange and bourbon cherry garnish. Smooth and warm on a cold, wet evening. We had the chargrilled oysters, 6 Parmesan butter and 6 with the bacon relish- both were unique, and tasted fresh. Presentation was phenomenal, with drying ice bubbling from the platter surrounded by the hot oysters on the half shell over rock salt. Finally, our entrees were just what we wanted, with gracious portions and wonderful flavor. We had the snapper special with lobster topping and a FANTASTIC risotto with table shaved truffles topped with seared scallops and shrimp. We have eaten risotto dishes all over the county, many prepared by Italian chefs, and this preparation compared to the very best. Go to Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette while you are in Houston. Any meal will be great!

    Just moved to Houston so this was our first time but I promise it will not be the last. Loved every dish we tried and we tried many. The Morning Farm Board was absolutely delicious. We fought over the last spoonful of the bacon jam. And we loved the Parmesan chargrilled oysters along with the lobster bites and crab balls. We lamented over what our entrees would be as everything looked so good when reading over the menu. We thought we had finally made our minds up until we heard the daily specials. We were presented with way too many delicious options but we settled on the blackened redfish special and the trout special. We were far from disappointed. The portions were generous and everything was seasoned perfectly. I cannot remember the name of the drink I ordered but it had ginger beer in it. That drink was to die for and I will be ordering it again anytime I go back. The mojito was pretty tasty as well. The service was a little slow to start but we had no issues after that. Loved the huge booths and relaxed atmosphere.

    It was the first visit for the majority in our party. We all agreed it was a great choice for our brunch and we plan to come back. Next time we are considering picking several different starts and sharing. Our server was Jamie and he did a fabulous job. Very attentive, great communicator and hope to have him as our server in the future. Great experience all around.

    Saturday brunch: Lovely ambience - really nice job on the decor. The green bar chairs really pop and even match the paint of the pipes above. White subway tile, cool chandelier. Great service, our waiter was on it. The food was also delicious- got the crab benedict and bread pudding French toast, blood mary, and espresso martini. We were happy.

    One of the specials of the day on Nov 8, white fish over a bed of risotto with octopus on top ,was not impressive. Super over price dish, tasteless fish, and undercook octopus. the only worth item was the risotto and it comes as a surprise as its not a trattoria. I've been several times in this restaurant and I have the impression that cheaper items in the menu are far more better than "high end" specialties.

    Liberty is a nice place & I would definitely return. All of the food tasted good but the raw oysters were small for this time of the year. My family was in the oyster business in New Orleans so I may higher expectations than most diners. Service was noticeably excellent & ambiance was very inviting.
