For Valentine's 2017 I took my beautiful wife to Danton's for our romantic dinner. She ordered the crab stuffed shrimp with pasta and I ordered the Shrimp Creole with brown rice (get the white instead), a side caesar salad and a couple of Karbach Hopadillos instead of wine. The food was wonderful, great ambience with live music, very good service,... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2016

Danton's is easy access and parking on Montrose--a real find. It specializes in Gulf coast seafood and odes a great job of it. From oysters on the shell to crab cakes (flatten like pancakes!), to a Mexican Campechana (yummy seafood cocktail with shrimp, crab, avocado), you can't go wrong. Two gumbos! Bisque and garlic soup and crab salad. I am... More

Needed a place for a casual business dinner, was craving oysters and found a review for Danton's on Trip Advisor. We ate in the bar and had fantastic service. I asked for a cocktail recommendation and loved it - a good assortment of "not your typical cocktails". Then we asked about recommendations on cooked and raw oysters - it's all... More

this is a very strange electic place. White table clothes, and good New Orleans food. Its very upscale, serve is way above par, but there is not a pretentious air. Loved it. I did have the crawfish bisque, and somebody in the kitchen has their grandmas recipe! Terrific.

We weren't real hungry, so ordered a few different appetizers and couple of soups so we could sample different items. Had Oysters Mantrose to start, then ordered Oyster Stew, then Corn and Crab Bisque. Finished meal with order of fried oysters ala carte. Drinks were good. Service was great and food server hot and surprisingly fast. Best oysters I have... More

My sife and I went for dinner. The place is comfortable and upscale in its feel and look. Most men had on a jacket but it was not stuffy. There is a main dining room and a seperate oyster bar. There are a few spacious booths - we enjoyed one of them. This food is the real deal. Fresh gulf... More

We've been stuck in Houston for a month, and I was tired of beef & chicken. Our GPS popped up Danton's close to the downtown Medical Center area, so we gave it a try. What an absolutely happy surprise! Dark but not too dark inside, plenty of old wood, and generally very pleasing inside. We didn't have a reservation, but... More

I have been to Dantons twice and the latest for their Sunday jazz brunch. The stuffed shrimp is very good as is the okra and tomatoes as a side dish. Service is great and wait staff very friendly and attentive. Portions are just the right size.

My wife and I had lunch here for the first time and we will definitely return. We both enjoyed our lump crabmeat salads, with generous portions of seafood. Want to go back to try the grilled fish, oyster dishes and poyboys on their extensive Gulf Coast seafood menu.
