Server was friendly, knowledgeable about food and at tentative. Both meals were delicious and the pumpkin cheesecake was delicious. Only negative was we were sitting inside by a very loud group of 10-12 people. Would definitely eat there again.

Three days later, still dreaming about our food. The seafood tasted so fresh and everything we ordered was so flavorful. We sat outside and the tables had a little hand sanitizer spray. Not crowded at all and the tables were spaced out. To start we had the calamari and the tuna tower. The calamari was perfectly cooked, not chewy and it was evenly breaded. The sauce was just the right amount of spicy. The tower was not overly fishy, coming from someone who hates raw fish. We ordered a burger, Caesar salad, shrimp corn dogs, curry, lobster tacos, green tea cocktail, and salmon bowls. 20/10 would recommend all of that!! However, I was disappointed with the creme brulee as it had a curdled texture to it, instead of it being nice and smooth.

We had an excellent experience at Lovers Seafood. The service was fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive and helped make suggestions for our first visit. The deviled eggs with bacon jam are out of this world. The jalapeño shrimp has an fantastic sauce accompanying it. My husband had a very nicely portioned lobster roll and I had the wood smoked salmon. All great. We will be back!

Fantastic meal and easily my favorite seafood spot in Dallas. We always get a high quality meal here - and it's tough to find consistently great seafood. Service is great - even when they are super busy. Love the vibe on the new patio space.
We had a large group and tried 6 appetizers, 5 entrees, and 5 desserts. Favorites include: Calamari, tuna tartare, Shinsei style Brussel sprouts, grilled salmon with quinoa hash, cheese&jalapeno grits, mussels, key lime pie, seasonal pumpkin cheesecake, creme brulee. Honestly, EVERYTHING was amazing.

Great night out at Lovers Seafood. I had the redfish and seabass both of which were fresh and very good. Outdoor ambiance at night time on a cool September night in Dallas made this a great outing.

Finally some fresh fish in Dallas that is outstanding! They offer more than just salmon and redfish. The halibut with the quinoa risotto was superb. My partner had the pecan trout which was spicy and not the typical style you get in other restaurants. Will definitely go back again and hope that the wait staff is better that this first experience. Have a reservation and be prepared to have patience parking.

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.
