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.
I took a friend to dinner. The salad I ordered was totally overdressed. It was so wilted it was inedible. When I told the server she took no action and said sorry?? Will most likely not go back
Poor reception desk experience, otherwise food was exceptional and server congenial and helpful.
Doesn’t allow waiters to serve salt. BS.
Great sashimi, including its presentation. Service was terrific.
Took an hour for food to arrive
Good variety of seafood on the menu - from grilled swordfish to sushi. Preparation and presentation was competent and service was excellent. An added bonus was that the noise level was low so conversation during the meal was easy.
Great Seafood in Dallas. They never disappoint! I love the Sushi Selection.
the food was absolutely fantastic very well-thought-out. The presentation was outstanding. And our overall evening was very very nice for a place that we just happened upon.
I had a good experience. The food was expensive having a small portioned meal. The dessert was excellent, overall i would recommend the restraunt to my friends.
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.
Service was okay but felt very rushed . Everything but the swordfish was amazing !! Stick with the sushi.
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.
Divine as always! DFM has amazing, creative cuisine.
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.
Could not have been better. While selection was a bit limited the food was excellent and the resturant provided Champaign and starter fantastic touch.
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.
Joshua our waiter was awesome!
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.
Fresh food. Reasonable prices.
The service was impeccable.
Service was attentive, as usual. Sashimi is consistently very good. Cauliflower salad was excellent.
The dinner is really good, but the lunch was not!!! Very little food/seafood for your money. Lots and lots of bread and breading. Less than mediocre service. Additionally, the chef was out on the day in question. They took 3 shrimp and cut it up on the po boy. They over breaded and fried a half filet of fish on the fish and chips. And then lobster roll had 1 claw. The biscuits were served cold. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!!! A waste time and money.
What was most disappointing about this experience was the poor service. The server we had was over-sat, but there are ways to mitigate the extended wait of customers. The experience started with a fifteen minute wait to get someone’s attention to take our drink order. Our meals were just okay: three of the four arrived warm to cool, not hot, after waiting about 40 minutes. The fourth, a steak ordered well done, arrived undercooked, and she had to wait—again. I would not eat here again.
I ordered the scallops and upon the first bite I noticed a strong taste and odor of ammonia from the scallops. I immediately returned the dish. An ammonia smell from scallops is a clear sign they were going bad. My rub is that no one apologized for serving the bad scallops and after checking out, noticed that they didn't even remove it from our ticket. I used to love this place but after this experience, I won't be coming back. A simple acknowledgment and apology from either the chef or restaurant manager would have gone a long way in getting me to return again.
Took a business group to this restaurant and had a great experience. We shared the Seafood Tower for for and particularly enjoyed the Tuna and Crab. I really recommend the Swordfish entire. Truly excellent. The service was also attentive.
Nice food and great atmosphere.
When first seated, we asked about specials and were also told that the Chef was very proud of his menu and did not see the need for specials. When we asked to make a menu substitution, we were told the Chef would no make substitutions for the same reason. The food was mediocre, but at least the service was slow and poor...I am guessing that the Chef will figure out what happens to restaurant folks who rest on their Laurels.
It is our second visit to the restaurant. The food was exceptional. Had never had the 3/Ceviche before, and it was tasty and different. I typically get the flat iron steak. It was cooked to perfection, (Medium rare) and was tasty. The sauce was exceptional. My wife (the pescatarian) enjoyed the scallop and cauliflower. the dessert menu is a bit light, but since we really enjoy the chocolate souffle, who cares? We'll be back
This was really bad. Even though we had a reservation, they seated us in the bar area which (1) had very poor service and (2) had a drunk guy passed out at the bar. We left after we ate our appetizers. Will not return.
Outstanding food, expensive but worth it.
I was in Dallas for a conference and ate here twice at lunch time and once in the evening. The food is excellent and reasonably priced.
The service was good but on one occasion they brought out my main course before I had finished my starter - not great when they have to take it back to the kitchen and keep it warm.
Overall it's a quality restaurant and if you're into fish and sushi it will hit the spot.
Good food and good service. The waiter was very polite. Parking can be a challenge, but that's probably typical for that stretch of downtown Dallas.
Service extremely slow
The food was so good but i thing thry need a drink menu
Impressive ambiance. Very cordial staff. Food was great with creative presentation.
Very good food & service. Excellent portions, not overwhelming. Yellow tail sashimi was wonderful.
