This was the best seafood we've had in Dallas and we've been to quite a few restaurants. Everything was delectable and amazing. We had the tuna poke bowl, swordfish, crabcake, and salmon. Everything was off the charts delicious and a culinary journey. Highly highly recommended!!!!

DFM is now more of a sushi place rather than a great seafood option. Loads of Poke bowls and rolls and limited fish dinners. What dinners they do offer are all Asian influenced in flavor.

Service was severely lacking. Restaurant was practically empty but our server was absent for long stretches. Not sure what the problem was.

A really classy small restaurant in the middle of downtown Dallas. This is a beautifully decorated and very comfortable restaurant with a very relaxing atmosphere and surprisingly good food. Scallops dish and Redfish dish were both excellent. Server and hostess could not have been better; both very nice and professional. Only recommendation would be to add more variety to seafood entrées part of menu. Although very pleased with our entrees, we would like more choices. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a fine dining experience.

The menu is somewhat limited but the food was excellent. At times it was a little loud due to some of the other tables in the restaurant, however it was still possible to hold a conversation. Despite the constant complaining from the people at the table next to us it was an enjoyable experience.

Exceptional find in downtown Dallas. The menu was interesting and the food superb as well as beautifully presented. Lots of little extras and an attentive waiter. We were in a bit of a rush and they accommodated us, although next time I would definitely linger! Pricey so be ready, but oh so worth it!

Bad service! The worst I remember. 20+ min to order drinks, over 1 hour to get food, all guests got their dishes at different times. Manager never showed up and the waiter should get trained. Food is great, service ruins the experience. Offering free drinks / treats
was even more insulting ..

My wife and I were in town for the weekend and wanted to have a nice dinner together. She loves sushi and found this place through our hotel. Decided to try it out based solely on the pictures. When we first arrived the place seemed dead, only a couple of table were occupied, but we were greeted with a smile and promptly sat. It took a few minutes to be waiting on, no big deal for me but seemed slightly odd given the slow business at the time. Nevertheless, our waiter, forgot his name (maybe Clint?), was amazing. We were given a few teasers from the kitchen along with a glass of champagne. Both tasted amazing.
While looking at the menu we noticed the sushi menu was missing and once we received it, there was only 5-6 rolls, 4 sashimi and nigiri options. Again seemed odd, considering sushi is advertised.
Our waiter was very helpful in picking out a wine and which rolls would be best. We ordered the Picasso, Sunshine and the Main Street rolls and Yellowtail Hamachi. I believe the waiter's words were, "The Picasso roll will blow your mind." Lofty words and they didn't fall short. The roll was amazing. So good in fact, we ordered a 4th roll, the Taiwan and were told that it is better than the Picasso. IT WAS! Best sushi we've ever had.
In short, great service and great food. If I'm ever in downtown Dallas again, I'll be stopping by for sure.

Do not waste your money. Food was Red Lobster quality. Presentation was poor. Table side service was adequate at best. Customer service on arrival was poor. Barside service was good. Prices were over and beyond food quality and service.

Food flavor, especially sauces were very good. Portions were incredibly small and value poor. Valet service is broken. Waiting almost 30 minutes at 8:30 pm to have car brought back is not acceptable. At $100 a person , more is expected.

A mismatch. The food well prepared and in the case of the fish dishes delicious. As good as the food was, the service was terrible. Indifferent, inattentive, slow and not at all welcoming. A tell-tale: in a half full restaurant, not one of the two floor managers inquired if anyone regarding their meal or service. The chef cares but no one else seems to.

Excellent seafood, just a few blocks from UNT Dallas College of Law, where we were attending a tournament. Service, ambience, and food quality were outstanding, and the chef was very accommodating to my wife’s food allergies. The Ahi was absolutely fantastic - so much so that we converted a “never raw” friend to actually enjoying Sashimi.

We e been here many times and always enjoyed it but this time we were disappointed.
Some of the food was still very good but one of us ordered salmon and it was extremely dry, actually inedible. Further we asked for a curry-less dish and they were not able to accomplish this.
We will probably restaurant again as it may have been an off night so we will see but this visit wasn’t great.

Our hotel was near this restaurant and so we decided to try it. It was a lovely evening with good food in a beautiful atmosphere. The lighting fixtures were definitely selected for a fish restaurant including the chandelier at the entrance. We asked the waiter if the glass on the rear wall was Chihuly but no one seemed to know.
We enjoyed the Oysters on the Half Shell, the Hamachi Crudo, and the Palacios , Texas Redfish. All of our choices was delicious. The waitstaff was professional, well trained, and appeared to very much enjoy working there.
We would certainly return the next time we are in Dallas.

Meal Food was OK. Sushi was excellent. Sides with the meal were goofy(bok choi and Brussel sprouts?) No one really want this type of side. Risotto or other type of starch like rice or potato dish.

Tolerant with a 1 year old; who did not make a lot of noise, but managed to scatter bread crumbs on the floor. Nice accomodation to perfectly prepare a small piece of salmon in lieu of the normal less healthy chicken fingers etc for kids. He ate it very well!

Been to the restaurant several time before and had a decent experience, but this was not that good. Food was cold and had to send it back. Husband had finished his meal prior to even getting mine. They brought my vegetables out after my meal was finished because they did too make them right the first time.
