We strive for these goals while maintaining both a respect to, and a responsibility for, the health of our ocean waters. We are dedicated to providing products that are delicious, innovative, and globally responsible.
Our market and our menu are designed to showcase the bounty and the possibility of the world’s waters. Our philosophy is to protect those same waters so generations to come can enjoy all of those same possibilities.
A new find for us. We will definitely return.
Our reservation was for 8:00 on a Saturday night; They sat us in the middle of the main & small dining room
The noise level was almost unbearable! I could not hear my husband talk at all; I highly recommend asking for the outdoor dining or bar dining which was not available when we arrived; not their fault, I should have called after making our reservation on Open Table, so my fault! The waiter assured us it would tone down & thin out soon which it did after about 30 min.
I love this place! the manager always includes himself in part of the service giving recommendations, asking how our craft cocktails are; oysters etc. Our waiter was awesome too.
The food here is fantastic! I had trout with grits, it was delicious! We shared oysters & the Thai lobster spoons & were excellent! My husband had the redfish with some type of red rice that had a delicious flavor.
By the time we had our main course, the crowd had thined out and we enjoyed conversation with our entrees!
We could not finish our entrees so we did not have any dessert, maybe next time!
Also, I have to mention our pre-dinner martinis were awesome perfectly chilled, no ice & my husband had his Chopin which he said was great too. We each had a nice glass of Chardonnay with our dinner which was a perfect pairing!
My only other minor complaint, (not their fault) since this a small place the tables are really cramped together; she was practically in my lap! on her baby tablet the whole time, but this was very distracting for my nice dining experience with my husband on our date night. Parents, please leave your toddlers home with a sitter when planning an evening out to places like this! It is not fair for your babies to be up after their bedtime with their blankies, pacies & screen devices in tow! It is certainly not pleasant for the other diners, no matter how cute they are.
Such a great spot! Live music, great good, wonderful service what more could you ask for? This is a wonderful restaurant and a great neighborhood gem!
ALWAYS ALWSYS FANTASTIC!!
Great birthday celebration
Really no complaints but here were our observations. The table are very small. If you order anything more that a small appetizer and entre you have no room. We were a party of two both ordering appetizers and 1/2 dozen oysters. The menu was very small. I get that but there were many seafood species not even represented. Your prices are much higher than your portions or quality deserve. But all in all we thought all was okay but there was no wow at all. The server was competent and friendly. The place was packed on a Wednesday night and that is probably the case most nights. So I assume these reviews will not change anything and they should ride out this great time in dining out.
It was great
Always a good crowd here for the weekend. Glad the menu changed back to offer some of
the original selections. This was an off night for us. My wife's red fish was right on, but my
blackened red snapper was terrible- slight fishy odor, and it looked like it had been prepared
early in the afternoon and then zapped for my order. Not fresh. Send it back? You know how
that goes, everyone else is done. When they say blackened, they mean BLACKENED. Guess I'll
choose something easy next time, if we go back.
Food was outstanding. Loved the coconut shrimp
starter and the salmon entree. Service was excellent! Great 70s songs playing. Noise level was low enough to carry on a conversation. We will be back!
Relaxing delicious dinner. R
A neighborhood favorite!
Excellent dinner. Service could have been more attentive.
Maybe the best meal I have ever had!! This is amazing! Lobster spoons are soo good it was all perfect!!
This is the first time that we could take advantage of the outdoor seating. I was really nice. The food was great. Special requests were welcomed. I had the Sea Bass with chile sauce. It was great. They oysters were really good too.
The food was delicious but the service was extremely slow. Multiple times our waiter would be taking care of other tables and run away while we were trying to get his attention. Would probably go back for their happy hour deals but not sure I’d pay full price for that level of service.
Outstanding meal Friday nite. I had Salmon and my wife the Halibut. Both delicious! Patrick was our server and assisted us with wine selection which involved a couple of tastings.Settled on Rombauer Chardonnay.Everything was better than advertised including the homemade chips and Blue Cheese.
AMAZING!! From the very moment we stepped into this gem, we were treated so well. No fish smell here at all. Oysters and king crab were fresh..a bit pricey but excellent. The clam chowda was outstanding. The trout was so wonderful complimented by the best grits I’ve had since South Carolina. We had a lovely bottle of Santorini wine then finished this delightful meal with their Key Lime pie! Service was outstanding. Jeff was awesome, very knowledgeable of the oysters and all menu items, and very accommodating. We will be back! I should note we went for an early dinner which makes our dining experience the best for us!!
Dallas is lucky to have such a fine resource. The food and service are always perfect. Having been in the food business myself, I especially appreciate the presentation. Also, the menu is thoughtful. One can spend quite a lot or choose a moderate selection and still get a high level of everything. Don't start cutting food cost! That's always the beginning of the end. We want you around for a long time.
We had a perfect table in the corner that I had asked for.
It was loud but we could still have a conversation.
My husband had the green goddess salad and the trout .
I had the market redfish with Brussels sprouts and slaw.
Perfectly cooked and so fresh.
We can count on both of those qualities every time .
First, Valet is your best choice for parking. Service is excellent; Ambience and lighting is just right - not bright and not too dark - I'd describe lighting as romantic. Food is between 4 and 5 stars. Price is similar to other high end restaurants of this high food quality. Atmosphere is softer, darker and more pleasing than a similar seafood restaurant - TJ's Seafood on Royal - both are similar in quality. My opinion is that these similar restaurants charge a premium for fresh seafood - and if you want quality, you pay a little extra. Oysters at Lovers are excellent as was the Alaskan Halibut - you have a choice on preparation. Only real downside to Lovers, and many Dallas restaurants, is that red wine needs to be served at a lower temperative. When wine is $18 per glass, please serve it at the correct temperature. Otherwise, it was a pleasing experience with excellent food.
great food, service, ambiance, and decent value for the money.
Great food and excellent service. When we are looking for a great seafood place in Dallas, we always go to Lovers Seafood. One of a kind. Ask for Jodie to be your server. She is the best.
The food and service were great. The only downside was the the blackened red fish was not seasoned enough for my tastes.
Food was very good and menu is varied - sandwiches, salads and large plate entrees.
It is not cheap - so it’s probably more of a special occasion place.
But overall compatible with the comparable high seafood restaurants in the city.
The seafood is always good here. I think it is a little pricy, but that is just my opinion. The oysters are, especially...I wish they had a few more "nibbles" on the menu. Sometimes all I want is an appetizer and a salad. It works for us because we are close in the neighborhood. Service is always good and the wine list is nice.
Great date night with another couple! Got to share a few dishes this way and we loved everything! Quality is everything to us and you surpassed our expectations! Will for sure be back
Overall it was a good experience but not impressed that we had a 7:30 reservations and had to wait more than fifteen minutes to be seated.
Food was very good and service (Patrick) was outstanding. Would gladly return on our next trip to Dallas.
We get this waiter every time. He is usual outside. He is slow and forgetful. It’s very uncomfortable. We smelled alcohol on his breath. Kinda makes us not want to come back. This is the 4th time. It’s just not fun.
My new favorite restaurant. The poke bowl was super fresh and delicious. Loved the shrimp “corny dogs” Already planning my next visit!
After asking not to be seated by any service areas, we were seated right next to the silverware and water station., Server then spilled water down the back of my sweater and never came to refill our wine glasses.
Excellent food and courteous service
Justin always takes great care of his clients. The food is always delicious. Am now a huge fan of their Green Goddess Bibb Lettuce salad.
Love the food and the menu selection at this restaurant. Our server "Catfish" is the best!
Fabulous food, wait staff wonderful, just crowded and noisy
Average experience. Very pricey for what it is. The tuna poke bowl was the best thing we ordered
Always the best!!!
Continues to get better and better! Friendly staff, high quality product, neighborhood vibe
Food is amazing and my service was excellent. Our waiter even put a candle in our dessert as we were celebrating our best friend-aversary...Patrick Fagan was the best! My only critique was the price of the sides vs. the portion side of sides is off, either price should come down or increase the portion a bit. But other than that everything was excellent. Food taste and quality was excellent.
The only reason I gave 4stars for ambiance was that we were seated in a makeshift rented area off the bar. There were about 4-5 tables in the space that is used in nice weather as outdoor seating. Towards the end of our dinner the bar got busier and people were standing fairly close to the tables.
