Got the clam chowder and it tasted nothing like clam chowder. Chose to order the Caesar and we ended up with a bowl of bitter leaves (the white and light green that most usually throw away lol). Our waiter knoey (so) was great though.
Fried shrimp was outstanding. It was butterflied and breaded just right.
Our service was outstanding. The rest of the meal was very “meh” poke appetizer was fine, but definitely was lacking something. We have had it before and really liked it. Today it fell a little flat.
My entree was filled with bones, I had 5-6 bones that I had to pull out of my mouth. While I expect to have the off bone missed when eating any fish, this felt very careless. Once I got around the bones the flavor of the fish was OK. Hush puppies and sweet potato mash were both outstanding.
All in all, wasn’t the best showing for a restaurant that we usually really love.
Luckily we went on a Tuesday because my husband is in a wheelchair and the tables are really close together. But there weren't a lot of folks there that night. The YaYa gumbo was excellent and I had the Opah fish which was also great. Everyone at the table had something different and we were all so glad we had leftovers to enjoy the next day.
The restaurant is small therefore the seating are close together. It’s very noisy and difficult to hear. It’s definitely not an atmosphere to try having a conversation.
The Salmon was cooked to perfection and the jalepeno cheese grits were amazing. I'm not even sure I like grits but Amberjax makes quality food with great service!
I have been to Amberjax several times and it is always perfect!!!
Service was surprisingly fast. Wanted to have fish cooked a little more and that was even surprisingly fast - wish all others could turn around dishes like these guys. Finished the entire plate it was that good.
Good food. Terrific service. The only possible drawback, depending on you personal likes is the extreamly loud atmosphere. Having a conversation with your table mates can be a challenge. However I will go back knowing this possible drawback.
Excellent food with Louisiana flair. Our waiter, Noe, was top notch. We will definitely be returning. Love Trinity Groves.
Service was a little lack luster. My waiter was also the bartender so service was a little slow. Ordered soup and forgot to bring my order to the table. Had to ask where my order was. Fish was not cooked to order specifications for two of us at the table. Bread was not complimentary with the meal and it too was also sub par.
We had great service, seafood was delicious and they honored our anniversary with a glass of champagne & and maybe the best keylime pie
Great Fathers Day experience!
Fresh seafood in a loud setting at . Trinity Groves
Food was good, a bit over priced. Worth trying at least once.
Great server, fish impeccably fresh, really nice mashed sweet potato, and local black raspberry ice cream for dessert!
Great service and attentive waiters
Celebrating birthdays was a great luncheon.
Came for the Cajun pasta. Shrimp and crab - so good! Green beans were good. The server was nice and helpful. Only thing that would’ve made it any better was if they had done something for my birthday. When making the online reservation, I was asked what the occasion was, which was my birthday. Maybe this is just meant for tracking purposes and I misunderstood the purpose. Other than that, I enjoyed the food and experience. We’ll be back!
Fabulous food and outstanding service.
The shrimp Mac & cheese was very bland. Veronica was a great server!
The redfish was perfectly seasoned. My husband had the trout, and he also thought that was perfect. We were entirely satisfied, and will return.
Had a great time. Delicious food! Can’t wait to go back.
In the last few months I have visited Amberjax's 3 times. The food is great, the service is always implacable and the hostess greats you with a smile.
Our Sunday lunch birthday celebration at Amberjax was delicious. The waiter was extremely attentive. The seven of us selected various menu items and each person was pleased. We had salmon, crab cakes, shrimp & grits, catfish, fish & chips, and chicken fingers (off the kids menu). The sides were wonderful too. Hush puppies, fried okra, mushrooms, garlic mashed potatoes, fries, etc were all great. We will definitely return. This was at least our third visit.
Food was excellent and service very good. We'll be back.
Food and service are always excellent. We have been here several times and have enjoyed it each time.
Belated mother’s day
The food was good, albeit a bit overpriced. The service was okay. I was not a fan of being sold things just because they were about to run out of a product (i.e., flounder). Also, how does a seafood restaurant run out of hush puppies?! Overall, the food was good, but I think this place is overrated.
Amazing food, good service, nice atmosphere.
Thought it was a little pricey! Also, extremely LOUD.
As usual the food was tasty. I got the ora king salmon and it was great as usual. My date got this catfish etouffe . I have not eaten catfish in a while. But I didn’t care for it the last time I did. I normally find catfish dirty tasting and chewy. But this was delicate and clean. The waiter explained to me it’s because Amberjax uses real catfish that has never been frozen from the USA. Apparently most restaurants sell imitation frozen catfish raised in China. But not Amberjax. Another reason why this is one of my favorite spots in town.
The seafood was excellent. There were four of us and we had the grilled salmon(2), the red fish and the shrimp and grits. Food was cooked perfectly and arrived at our table at the right temperature. The fried okra was delicious. The hush puppies were a real treat. We didn't save room for dessert - but we will on our next visit!
Terrible experience. All was going well until we were served our main course. My son ordered redfish Pontchartrain and immediately knew it didn’t look right. He asked the waiter who told him it was Pontchartrain sauce and left. Not convinced, my son looked up the description and a picture of the dish and then we called the manager over to discuss the problem. He took the dish back saying it was only the base of the sauce and would correct it. After a long delay the dish was brought out by another server. When my son again said that this wasn’t right, she agreed that it wasn’t and took it back. We felt that they were trying to pull one over on us. Insult to injury, the bill came, the dish that was wrong was taken off, but they added a mandatory 20% tip. When we said we had a problem with the mandatory tip, they took it off, but were slow in doing so, and then the manager kept staring at us, shaking his head. He even followed us out of the restaurant and watched us drive off, still shaking his head. Very creepy. Needless to say, won’t be going back here. Something is really wrong with a restaurant when they try to deceive you about what they are serving and then try to make you feel that you’re the problem because you did not accept what clearly was not what was ordered.
Excellent fish and excellent service. Our server was friendly and welcoming. My redfish was delicious and I was able to trade out my sides to suit my taste. My spouse got the Steamer Bowl and ate every drop! We ended with the Key Lime pie which was very tasty!
The bacon wrapped scallops were amazing, as was one of the specials, bacon wrapped stuffed flounder. It's a bit costly but very good.
I can't count the number of times we have eaten at Amberjax. The fish is typically quite fresh and well-prepared as it was this time, also. The noise level was almost painful it was so loud. Opening the garage door "window" might have helped with this. The major problem this time was with the waitstaff. He was constantly interrupting the meal to ask how we were doing and he would remove plates before we had finished. I'm wondering if the ownership has changed since the service issue is a marked difference from what we've experienced up to this point.
The fish filets (minus ahi tuna) and desserts were very good. Probably the best bread pudding in DFW!!
The food was wonderful and all of the flavors were spot on. The gumbo was extremely authentic and some of the best that I've had in DFW.
We have eaten that for dinner and it was excellent and we loved every minute of it. I wish I could have said the same about lunch. I never send food back but a girl friend and I both sent our food back. We ordered the trout and it was so over cooked we could not eat it. They switched it out for catfish for me and that was good. There was a large group eating close to us and we could not hear each other and when we talked to management they raised the door which reduced the echo and saved the day. I have really loved that restaurant in the past and I hope this is not a sign of them going down......
Excellent food! Excellent service! Ambiance not equivalent to the prices.
