This is a fabulous restaurant. We look forward to returning ASAP. We love going on Saturday nights when they play Motown music!
We will probably eat outside next time because our only negative was the noise volume. It’s loud inside and challenging to hear and talk.
The bar area is also a fun area and last night they had the large sliding class open to the outside which is next to the bar. All in all highly recommend!

We love Becca so much. So professional but very down to earth. We love talking to her about life. Always good food too. And we loved Aaron I think is his name. The guitar guy. And Abi I think is his name. The valet guy. All in all always a good time. We love the outdoor space.

Prices are too expensive based on quality of food, and quantity in my case, 2 tablespoons of lobster on a stale role.

Great spot, superb variety, lunch service was extremely fast. We ordered six small plates and we had them all in less than 15 minutes. Bacon wrapped shrimp, shishito peppers, lobster spoons were very nice unique small dishes. The coconut shrimp were good but not as exceptional as the other three. Really tasty sauces accompanied each appetizer. Highly recommend this restaurant from all aspects.

Everything was great. Food was excellent and the staff were friendly and be efficient. Although the restaurant followed the COVID protocols it was EXTREMELY crowded indoors to a point that made it slightly uncomfortable for us due to the health concerns with the new mutations and everything else. Although not mandated it may be a good idea to reduce the amount of tables inside to minimize exposure and maintain at least some safe distance!!

When it’s busy it’s loud, there’s a nice upbeat vibe but it is a challenge to hear the person across the table.
Food was wonderful with only the entree falling a bit short. While the fish had a nice flavor it was very dry. Will go back again for a 2nd try.

As a preface, we enjoyed happy hour here, two separate days, earlier this same week. We love dining at a bar. This was our first dining experience at Lovers Seafood. Upon early arrival for our reservation at the bar we were told to take our seats. There was much confusion about the two seats we requested and our reserved seating. We were initially denied seating in an otherwise full bar. I was stunned but waited as directed by a familiar bartender. After much confusion, I was asked whose name the reservation was under. Upon giving my name the bar then acknowledged the two reserved seats as ours. I tried to rally from the awkwardness. Throughout dinner, it was difficult/nearly impossible to get the attention of any of the three bartenders or the bar back. No food was explained. Ordering was very tedious. All in all I would not consider this a dining friendly bar.

Went on a very busy weekend night with reservation. Great decor and ambience but the tables and seats are very close together and felt overall cramped. Service was very very slow and every part of our meal felt delayed. Food was okay but not worth the price. Glad we tried it but will not be back.

Appetizers delivered to wrong table. Wrong wine. Wrong entree. Food was excellent, and I was familiar with the wine, so I didn’t say anything.

AMAZING as always!! Definitely a regular hotspot for our family and a not-to-be-missed destination when entertaining friends from out of town. The menu is creative, food is delicious, and the service never disappoints. Oh, and their bartenders are fantastic as they mix creative cocktails from Lover’s notable selection.

Wonderful new found in Park Cities neighborhood! Especially if you are into seafood! Mussels done perfectly when I required less salty; I even finished the sauce. Great scallops dish my honey ordered. Nothing to complain at all about the food. The dessert is great too. And our waiter is superb: efficient, never in our way unless we need service. Cool guy!! If I have to pick out something to improve: 1. Difficult to social distance and no mask required. 2. No birthday gifts or discount

Service is still excellent - friendly, welcoming, helpful. Ambience still relaxing with positive, upbeat, organized energy. Food was incredibly disappointing. Scallops (I ordered 2 extra, market price charged, happy for this option) were beautifully fresh, but the scallops, Brussel sprouts and lemon wedges were way over charred .... The obligatory coleslaw accompaniment was at least 1, if not 2, days old and limp, tasteless. My special birthday celebration was happy, but marred from the main component - the chef in the kitchen.
