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.

Our overall experience was very good but we ordered and our food came out very quickly. The appetizer was brought out with the main entere. It seemed like we're were rushed. We were seated right by the door and the noise from that was kind of a mood killer. But the food was delicious. We will go back and hope for a better experience with the service and seating.

Love this place… my favorite dishes are the Rainbow trout, the Shrimp and grits, fish tacos and their Old Fashioned are on point.

Noise level in main dining is off the charts. Tables are very close and acoustics are poor. For this meal, service was average. Food was OK but Fish and Chips were sub par compared to previous experience.

Service was exceptional! Certain food was better than others and the best iced tea, too! It was very loud and hectic and our original table felt on top of another table so we switched to the community table!

Paul helped nicely adjust our reservation time to accommodate a late guest. Patrick was a delightful server! All food was good; though, one guest was not a fan of the lobster tacos. The Key Lime pie was delicious!

Not only a neighborhood favorite, but also one of the best restaurants in town. The food is always exceptional and the service 5 star. Lynae and Tracey, partners in the restaurant, pay attention to every detail and at least one of them is always there to say hello and make sure everything is perfect. These dynamic restauranteurs are a gift to the fun, fine dining scene of Dallas. Keep up the great work ladies! We'll keep coming back for more!!!

Wasn’t our best dining experience at the restaurant. Tiny, tiny pieces of sole for $32, and were told they were out of mussels, but miraculously, the table behind us ordered them 8 minutes later and all of a sudden they had them. Advised manager and she did make it right on our tab.

Very small, over priced and valet parking for 20 feet to the door. Really, no customers for food just the bar. Not what we expected for downtown Dallas.

Unfortunately is was very loud and we were hardly able to have a conversation with our friends! This was our first time after 14 months being out for dinner. Service was great and food good - but nothing exceptional.

We always love the food. BUT last night on the patio it was SO loud. They had a guitar player which was cool. But it was literally hard to hear each other.

A perfect meal. We had charred corn-poblano hushpuppies, crispy shrimp corny dog and Walleye (Pike), which was one of the daily specials. The Walleye was divine! Everything was delicious.

I hate to leave anything less than a stellar review so I will share only the facts:

1. Greeted warmly and seated immediately BUT shown to a 2’x2’ two-top between two four-tops. I’m 6’1” and 200lbs+. Not ideal! Servers had to clear the table to serve the food!
2. Ordered two appetizers and a bottle of wine. One app was very good, the other should be in the hall of flavor fame! It was fantastic! Wine was reasonably priced.
3. Would have loved to try the oysters but $40/dozen!!?? A competitor in walking distance is at 1/2 that price and just as high quality. No value for the money here.
4. Entrees were good, but not great.

In summary, not a bad experience but not good enough to warrant a return visit. Would consider for an event with special pricing.

All four of us thought their dinner was below par for this restaurant we have been
dining at for a long time. Pecan crusted trout was small serving and somewhat mushy.
Wine list has gotten out of control - don't know who's been messing with that. It almost
seems like the restaurant is trying to reinvent itself after covid. Hope that's not the case.
We'll give it another try, and hope that it was just a off night.

We love their “fish and chips” which is better than the British version for which we are nostalgic. Our waiter, Wellington was friendly and efficient.

This restaurant needs to do much better with valet parking and hire more service. The last three times I have been there a single valet parker has been trying to deal with an unrealistic number of cars with very limited parking space.
