Lovers Seafood and Market is the second concept from Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing, the partnership that produced the local favorite Shinsei.

In an age where independent, neighborhood, specialty shops are virtually extinct, Lovers Seafood and Market is committed to the principles of personally providing our community exceptional quality, fair pricing, and excellent service. 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.

1/2 price bottles on Tuesday make Lovers Seafood even better! They are no longer serving the fried green tomoatos and that's a bummer. I can always count on the quality of the food and service.

Great food, great service. There was a small wait but we were seated at the bar then shortly seated at our table soon after. Server was attentive, food came out quick and it was all amazing.

Excellent food. The shrimp and grits are a must! The only ding I can give is there needs to be a couple fewer tables...it’s a little too cozy.

The seating is terrible. We sat in a line of rickety wooden tables each about 2ft by 2 ft.. There was not room for the plate plus glass plus other. We could not stand up without moving the table next to us and disrupting people. We are not having a glass of wine, we are trying to have a meal (at $100 a pop). Could they just get bigger tables?

I took my husband here for Valentine’s Day. I have been there several times and it was his first visit. He keeps saying how much he liked that restaurant. We had a great Valentine’s meal. Great service, good live music that wasn’t too loud for conversation, excellent food! I highly recommend it!!

Excellent food and wine, 2 of my guests had halibut and said
it was dry, 2 of us had scallops, wonderful, sides very good.
Noise level bit noisy. Waiter was ok, could have been a little
more friendly.
Will definitely come back

Food and service was great. Only complaint that dropped are review was we were seated at a 2 top next to the bar It was busy and people were pushed against our table and constantly bumping into our table. It was terrible we finished as fast as we could. Kenny and Monica Stacy

Very obvious they continuously overbook during peak dining hours. Arrived on time for reservation and waited 30 minutes to be seated (along with everyone else around us). A regular occurrence here.

Very good atmosphere and food. Small place and can get crowded. Oysters are $40 a dozen which feels a little high but they are very good.

This was my second disappointing visit here. Although our server was wonderful, the rest of the visit was sub par. Lobster spoons were delicious but $3 each for about a teaspoon of lobster. Had to send back my friend’s dish because her salmon was cold and brussel sprouts came back burnt. Surprising this is the same owners as Shinsei which is always wonderful.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE!! Amazing seafood always, great happy hour deals. The sweetest sweetest servers and families. Highly recommend! We sat at the bar (where they serve the full menu) and everyone was so friendly. We love the fish tacos, oysters, fish and chips, lobster roll, and the Cajun fries! The apple cobbler desert is TO. DIE. FOR!

One of my favorite go to places. Never a bad dish served and always fresh! Service is fantastic from the host to the people bussing the tables!

The freshest sea food I ever experienced in Dallas for great value. The service is excellent and for a small dining area it wasn't noisy at all.

Our service was not as good as usual. The foo continues to be quality, however one entree was missing the sauce. So overall, this night, was not the best it has been in the past.

Great time celebrating my mom's birthday. Our waiter was very attentive and overall took good care of us. Our appetizers, calamari and tuna tower, were both amazing. The halibut on quinoa risotto was by far the best entree. The shrimp and grits was not what we expected sauce wise, but was still terrific. The snapper was the only thing we didn't enjoy at all - and probably should have sent it back. It was cold, too thick, and had no flavor. We took the waiter's recommendation on how to prepare it, and he said pan seared... I think it would have been much better blackened. The broccoli and cauliflower side was a tad boring --- would go for fries next time - they looked incredible! The birthday apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream and a candle was the perfect ending to a nice dinner.

Each one of us had a different kind of fish with sides and it was seasoned to perfection. I had the salmon grilled with the Brussel sprouts. It was lovely and delicious. My husband had oysters and a Caesar salad. Both quite tasty. Our friends had blackened fish and it was very good. We will be back again. Great neighborhood restaurant!
