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.

I loved the food and service at Lovers Seafood!
The trout and grits were extraordinary. Each time we dine there I have a new favorite dish..., all fresh and delicious. I definitely will return.

An overall excellent evening. The food was exceptional. The service was good with one exception. The staff person pouring our wine was careless and dribbled wine not only down the outside of all 4 glasses but also onto the table. Just carelessness. Should never happen, no excuse, but this was a $100. Bottle of wine. Please teach your servers how to pour.

It was expensive, but we had a great time! It was a nice spot for a girls night. Fabulous cocktails, and I loved the variety of oysters. We got a dozen raw oysters, and there were 6 varieties served. That was fun.

Wanted to love it but just didn't. I paid about $75 (including tip) for a salad, entree, and two drinks. Expensive for what it was.

Loved it . From the moment we walked in until we left, it was a relaxing experience. I would highly recommend the hush puppies. My friends order lobster rolls but I ordered the cod. We were all happy with our choices.

Always the best!! Wish that it weren’t so noisy at dinner. We’d come frequently, but the last time that we had dinner there, it was so noisy that we couldn’t talk to our guests.?

Our waiter Patrick was outstanding! He made great recommendations, was very friendly and was very attentive. He had the bartender craft me a non alcoholic drink that contained grapefruit and cucumber and was excellent!! My pecan trout with grits was excellent! My husband had the blackened red fish and loved it! The hush puppies melted in our mouths! Great experience all around!

Ceviche was very good, shrimp & grits also very good. My fish filet (can't recall the species) was merely good, small and undistinguished. No bread or other accompaniments, which was a bit of a shock at a restaurant of this price range and reputation.

We thought it was great quality, felt like eating at a nice seafood grill on the coast. Would rather have bread than popcorn and didn't think that the popcorn was that good either so seemed they could do without.

We were a party of four with a reservation through OpenTable. Good thing we had a reservation, restaurant filled up pretty quickly. We ordered apps, the lobster spoon is fairly small piece but tasty, crab topped deviled eggs were delicious, crab cakes good, but like so many other places, they kind of fall apart when you put a fork in them. Personally I’d like them to be a bit firmer. Entrees were all good, shrimp and grits filling and reasonable price, pecan crusted rainbow trout good, seared halibut excellent-almost with I’d ordered that. Can’t remember what SO had! Deserts were also enjoyed. Creme Brûlée being the star. And if you like a cocktail, the flask Old Fashioned is delicious as well. Our waiter, Patrick was excellent, there whenever we needed him with a good sense of humor and personality.
The tables are very close together, that is the only reason I gave atmosphere 4 instead of 5 stars.
Overall, I plan to visit again. :)

Lovers Seafood is one of our favorite Dallas restaurants. Although service was a little bit shy this time due maybe to being shorthanded, Lovers Seafood consistently delivers outstanding service and outstanding food. Keep up the good work!

Fresh sea food and diverse choices at this recently renovated restaurant. Noise level was high on a Thursday night but it was possible to have a conversation when sitting at one of the smaller roundtables. Prices aren't cheap but food quality is high.

We celebrated my birthday-this was my second visit. The food was delicious; my husband and I shared the king crab and I left a happy lady. We love the neighborhood feel and the service was great, too. We’ll be back!

I was very disappointed in my Chilean Sea Bass. It was cooked perfectly but had no sauce or seasoning of any kind. I never ask for salt but that night I had to.

The highlight was the happy hour special on raw oysters — half price! Took some of the sting out from my overpriced entree.

Impeccably fresh seafood served in both traditional and creative ways. You are able to get things prepared simply, so there are numerous healthy choices. Nice wine list, cocktails. I have some food allergies and they are very accommodating.
