We tried the Restaurant Week Preview menu which was excellent. The char and tempura softshell crabs were outstanding.

The service was excellent, food was good but not great. Portion sizes are very small with the expectation of a multi-course meal. For $35 for a main course, I expected more than a 4 ounce serving of fish.

First time dining at this restaurant. Very friendly service greeted us. Complimentary champagne to start with a Chefs tasting. Waitress was attentive and was able to provide suggestions. Group of 7 and no complaints regarding the food. Everything was delicious. I would recommend having dinner if here in Dallas.

I took my lovely lady here for her birthday dinner and we had a fantastic time.
The waiter was on point.
The oysters were delicious.
The mood was nice and perfect for our date.

The only qualm I have is that the menu, for a seafood place, focused over heavily on spicier dishes. Everything had some sort of spicy ingredient in it. Most of the time this was just not necessary. Just because we live in TX doesn’t mean we all like spicy food. I just felt limited by it.

Everything else was amazing though.

This restaurant is across from the Joule... a trendy downtown Dallas hotel. It was great. We were immediately seated. Service was spectacular. Sushi was great. My wife had red fish which she is still raving about. My steak was probably an 8/10...but lets be honest, thats pretty good for a fish restaurant. Dessert and drinks were great as well. We will definitely return.

Dallas Fish Market is my new favorite downtown restaurant. The staff was attentive and treated us exceptionally well while we celebrated a birthday. We were greeted at our table with a sparkling rosé toast, which set the mood for the entire evening. The food was absolutely delicious and unique. If I could eat here everyday, I would.

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.

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.
