  • Dallas Fish Market-DISAPPOINTING!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    My husband & I were celebrating our 20yr anniversary & chose DFM to do so with our group of 8.This was our 1st time trying DFM & based solely on this experience, I would not return or recommend to others.Our reservations was @7:45-appetizers didn't come out until 10!Our waiter apologized 4 times during wait & said they were having computer issues & our orders never made it in.It appeared this was the case for only our table as all the other tables had been served with no problem.We decided to leave & asked for our bill @10 we were the last of 3 groups in the restaurant which closes @11 we were told our food was being plated & asked if we would stay.Charged full price w/tip for slow service where anniversary never acknowledged-DISAPPOINTING!

    Every dish we had at this restaurant was a hit, however, I think the striped bass was an overall success from all the wonderful entrees. We cook at home a lot, but we have chosen not to attempt a striped bass because I don't think we can make it come out as great.

    The ambience was nice, service was good. Unfortunately I was not impressed with the food. The scallop appetizer & steak was decent. But all our fishes were dry. The drink " special" was water down & bland. Walking out with $75 bill & $10 valet including tip, feeling disappointed.

    My friends and I enjoyed the variety offered for Restaurant Week and selected several "must try's" from the standard menu for when we return at a later date. The Market Mule cocktail was fabulous and wine pairings were well-selected. Maitre'd/Manager/Owner was very personable and visited to check on our experience. Wait staff were not as relaxed, nor were they helpful in making our selections. However, they were quick and efficient with service, so I can't really complain overall. It was a very busy dinner hour.

    We loved it! The food was amazing and the waite staff were also great. They explained in detail the items we ask questions. Since of their items are unusual to your normal expectations, they are very careful in their descriptions. I had a duck breast and it was the best. You cannot go wrong with this restaurant. Great place to impress a date!

    I had read reviews indicating service wasn't great...and it was true, our service was not good. However, when we let our server know that we were not pleased and why, he notified the manager who came and spoke with us and offered apologies. All in all, once we got that behind us things improved. All that said, the food here was EXCELLENT!!! Striped bass in the mustard sauce was incredible, tuna tartare appetizer delicious, and awesome fig/mascarpone dessert to die for!

    Dinner with a colleague on a Wednesday night. Sat at a table in the bar instead of our reserved table to take advantage of the happy hour sushi - 4 pieces of chef's choice sushi with every drink, and discounted drinks. Service was a little bit slow but friendly and good overall. Food was great - the happy hour sushi was a great starter, I had the seared scallops which were amazing, my colleague had the local grilled chicken which he also said was amazing. We shared the curried cauliflower, which was deep-fried, unfortunately, but was still really good. Definitely plan to go back.

    This was my first time ever to the Dallas Fish Market and I wish I wasn't moving because it wouldn't have been my last. Everything about the place was great and I have 0 complaints. The waiter even gave my girlfriend a complimentary wine (this was due to not wanting to waste it because another table wanted to order something different), so for that he got an extra tip. The service was friendly and the food came out great. We had salad and sushi. Being a techie, I also enjoyed how the drink menu was on an iPad, very cool!

    Made surprise anniversary dinner for wife. She was blown away by sushi. Just so happened to have surf and turf with scallops. Her favorite. I ordered flowers to have on table when arrived. They were there and beautiful. Manager came to table to ask of occasion. He then had caviar and sparkling wine to table. Class act from time we walked in until we left. Just awesome!!!

    The Fish Market looks like an undiscovered gem. At 7:30 on a Saturday night the place was barely 1/2 full. On the other hand, it is one of the better seafood restaurants in Dallas. Parking is by valet right outside the door ($7.00). Seated in seconds. Our waitress was very good, making several good suggestions, including one for the wine. We ate fish (natch!) and both dishes were quite good. Their wine list isn't shabby, either. There were several other nice touches, like complimentary glasses of sparkling wine before dinner, and a bowl of fresh cotton candy after dinner. We had to eat and go in a hurry to catch a show, and our waitress was exceptional about moving things along briskly. Really good service!

    Our party of 5 arrived around 6pm for dinner and found the restaurant very warm. We asked if there was a problem with the air and were told that they had been having issues for last couple of days but repairs were made today and it should cool off soon. The temperature only got worse and by the time our food came it was extremely hot in the restaurant. We commented multiple times to the staff, and finally had to complain, and asked for some type of concession to compensate for our discomfort. Even suggested that they comp a drink or dessert. They did nothing to make us comfortable or feel better about our uncomfortable expensive meal.

    We went to Dallas Fish Market on our 5th Anniversary and experienced amazing service from beginning to end. They started us with complimentary champagne and a deviled egg with caviar on the house. We had the Salmon Sashimi special which was so good we ordered another and thoroughly enjoyed the Temptation & Dragon Rolls. We're so excited to have found a reasonably priced and top grade sushi place here in Dallas. We just moved here from LA and this place reaffirms we made the right decision. We will be regulars for sure!

    Always love love love DFM. This time however my dish was not the best. Ceasar was ok, but the Striped bass let me down. THe mussells inside the shell had disintigrated. The bass itself was a little done. Service was awesome as usual. We will go back but I won't order the striped bass again. My husband loved his sushi roll and the sea bass but stated it was a bit rich. Dessert was okay.........

    My fiance and I ate here during a quick trip to Dallas. The restaurant was across from our hotel. The service was WONDERFUL! The entire team was helpful, friendly, and fun. There were a lot of little things such as complementary sparkling wine & a small appetizer and the wine list on the iPad that made for nice touches. The dinner entrees (surf & turf with scallops and the truffled sea bass) were delicious and perfectly sized portions. However, dessert was a bit lacking...the lavender creme brulee was a little more herby than expected. The wine list was varied, but rather expensive. But it was a fun treat. I can't rave enough about the service, but it also wasn't crowded so we had the chance to have a little more interaction with the staff.
