    Love seafood and figured we'd give Amberjax a shot. Dinner for two. Ordered coconut shrimp (pretty good) a bowl of gumbo (ok). For our entre we ordered Shrimp and Grits, and Walnut crusted Mahi. Had Mack and cheese and some other sides I can't remember. Had 3 cocktails. Have to say the server was very friendly and attentive. He knew the menu very well. Sadly the food was just ok at best... Maybe we ordered the wrong items I don't know but for $150+ out the door I've have a waaaay better experience at many spots in Dallas for much much less:/

    Excellent seafood restaurant in the Trinty Groves restaurant incubator in West Dallas. Many board specials. Food was excellent, but a tad pricey. Do not recommend getting drinks there. Too pricey for value...

    I was looking for a great restaurant to take a very close friend. I FB messaged his son that is working in Isreal. He recommended it to me. It is a really great place with a big selection. I really like how the trees were lit up with white lights and the Anarondak chairs for hanging out and having a drink. Loved it !!!

  • Bait and Switch Menu Item Pricing
    CharliesAngels
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    I thought it was a bit of "Bait and Switch" to have items on your on-line menu that do not appear in the actual menu. For example, the Salmon with sea salt and pepper for $14.00 on the on-line menu is $24.00 when you get to the restaurant. Anyway, that part is a bit "FISHY," but the food was very good. Please update your on-line menu, so that you can be honest about your pricing.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Amberjack. The food was delicious and portions were generous. Service was very professional. Noise level a little loud -- probably due to the concrete floors and full restaurant. Get there at 11:30 for lunch to beat the crowds.

    The choices of fresh fish is endless - food is always cooked exactly right - service is great from the time you walk in the door until you leave. Today the hostess ran down the side of the building to make sure my lunch companion did not get lost looking for front door. Because of nice weather - the side walls were all open to let in the delicious fresh air. I will say it is filled with energetic noise during the busy part of the lunch hour. We lingered later to enjoy some of their delicious desserts - and it became quieter around 2 pm when the main crowd had dispersed - although there was still a crowd. My favorite restaurant in Trinity Grove!

    I went with my sister and meuce for Sunday lunch . I had the watermelon, cucumber, arugula salad. Wow. Loved it. Followed by seared yellow fin tuna that melted in my mouth. Lastly...sister insisted I must have the bread pudding. Went to heaven and the Carmel sauce was the best ever. Great food and service.

    This is not a bad place for seafood in Dallas. The variety is impressive but negatives include poor value in pricing, high priced cocktails, somewhat crowded and extremely noisy. As part of the Trinty Groves menu of restaurants it's a good fit.

    We lucked out with great weather and open doors for indoor/outdoor dining. Food and service were fantastic, as were the cocktails (never had a Vieux Carre before -- that was great!). Will have to try the desserts next time -- we walked down to Kate Weiser Chocolates to fulfill a promise to the kid.

    Elliot's service was outstanding. The food was excellent-our whole party agreed! We like the location and the fish market inside. The one and only complaint would be the noise level. It is extremely loud. Hard to hear the person next to you let alone the person sitting across from you. Ok for groups but I would not reccomend for a quiet, intimate evening.

    We love the variety of fresh fish here. Tuna, Chilean Sea Bass and Opah was all cooked perfectly and tasted delicious! Had a Hatch Chili Crab Cake special which was amazing...I love spicy & it had a kick! Often, food really won't be spicy but just have the flavor of the chili so I was pleasantly surprised! Also had a Special Cajun Strawberry cocktail which was good and not too sweet. I love when there are mixologists that try different types of cocktails...makes drinks interesting! Delicious Fish and always something new to try This has become one of our favorite places to eat! Love the Trinity Grove area too!

    Very very loud with only about 25% occupied. Mushroom caps excellent, shrimp cocktail below average. Blackened Red fish was tasty, but small portion for $30. Had 1 glass of house wine each and total bill was $127 before tip. Summation: Value-way over priced. Ambiance-uncomfortably loud. Food 6 on a 10 scale. Value 2 on a 10 scale. Won't go back.

    Very disappointed. Started coming here when they first opened and always enjoyed it until this trip. Out of nearly every special at 7:00pm. One at our table got one of the last specials only because the waitress excused herself to go to the kitchen to see if it was still available. She held last one for our table. She returned to finish order and then someone yelled that special was gone. Food was not to the standards we are used to.

    This place is really cool and the food is delish. They boast that they have seafood delivered twice daily and their menu is updated on chalkboards twice daily. They also have a permanent menu that is available year round. The space is always packed, and fun for people watching. That said, be prepared for the noise level. It can be tough to shout any part of a conversation.
