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 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.

Our neighborhood go-to! Always great service! Mary, Patrick, Arthur and more I’m forgetting! Consistently the best seafood in the city! Great ambience, feels more like eating with family than a “bar scene”. Fantastic local live music too!

Had dinner for six on a Wednesday night. We ordered several appetizers that were good. Could use a little ponzu sauce on the demesy bowl, but once we asked for that, it was excellent. Between the six of us we had grilled sea bass, blackened sea bass, the pan-seared halibut, and hot smoked salmon. All were excellent. While the food was great, the best part of our evening was our server, Jodi. She was outstanding. She was attentive, but didn’t hover. She made sure we had plenty of space (we sat at the community table) and made us feel like we were her only customers that evening.

We had a delightful dinner at Lovers last Friday. The seafood was fresh and delicious and our waitperson, Mark, was attentive without being obtrusive. We started with a dozen blueprint oysters on the half shell followed by the Green Goddess salad. Each of us had s different fish entree ... each outstanding ... and we ended with shared warm oatmeal cookies & ice cream. Needless to say, we were stuffed and duly impressed. We’re looking forward to our next visit.
