All of the staff were very welcoming upon our arrival and throughout our dinner and very thankful for our business as we departed. Very good service and the food was excellent. Good menu with lots of choices and variety. Our only slight disappointment was the drinks. The dirty martini didn’t have any olive juice in it and the glasses were unusually small. Wine (Cab) with dinner was excellent. Overall a great anniversary celebration and we can’t wait to go back.

The server made my birthday dinner extremely special. It was great to be able to enjoy the delicious food at this restaurant before the mandate temporary closing of restaurants to lessen the potential spread of the Coronavirus.

Most of our visit was wonderful. Sadly, when we sat at our table, my husband's fork was covered in food... really gross. We got new utensils, ordered our food and everything from there on was great.

I was a little disappointed because I confirmed my reservation with the request that we are celebrating a birthday. The hostess nor our server even mentioned the birthday request. Why give us an option to specify what the occasion is if the Resturant does nothing. A small cookie or a slice of cake with “happy birthday “ written on it would ha e made this celebration even better. Overall the food was excellent.
We ended up going across the street to Cafe Intermezzo and when I mentioned we were celebrating a birthday they brought us a dessert with a candle on the house, on top of the dessert we already purchased. Now that is service.

The keeper has a great atmosphere. The service was phenomenal and the quality and variety of seafood was great. It’s my new favorite seafood spot in north Dallas.

I was standing in line for my reservation waiting my turn. Once the couple in front of me was done it was my turn. A guest came from outside around to the side and the hostess attended to him first.

I was finally seated a was waiting for my guest. I was served water for me and my guest. My guest arrived and my sever tended to the table next to us 4 times and the table at the end twice and never came to our table. My guest and I sat at the table for 15 minutes before he asked if we needed or wanted anything to order.

Excellent food and and extremely attentive wait staff! When my wife and I came here on a date night we loved the fact that there was a crowd of nicely dressed folks and Casually dressed people as well, meaning even if you came over or under dressed you wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb!

We were a party of six visiting for the first time. I found my food to be relatively bland especially for a restaurant that has a menu with a New Orleans flair. The blackened red fish and the craw fish etouffe had no hint of any spice or flavor. The clam chowder was watery. The "simply grilled salmon and the featured salmon were enjoyed. On the positive side the wine list was short but had some very nice wines offered. Also, we were celebrating a birthday and were offered a free choice of one dessert. I mentioned my complaints about the food lacking flavor to the manager on the way out. Hopefully the advice will be heard. There are many restaurants in the Shops at Legacy and also Legacy West to choose from.

Ashton (I believe was her name) was an amazing person and definitely an asset to Keepers. Our service and food were amazing to say the least. What an enjoyable evening.

We were looking forward to enjoying our first evening dinner at The keeper Seafood however, we felt our meals did not meet our expectations with respect to quality. We enjoyed the chowder and wine but my wife had shell in her oysters and I thought the shrimp was overcooked. We had a very nice table away from traffic but thought the restaurant was to noisy for us. Popcorn in lieu of bread as an appetizer? We were somewhat disappointed in overall dining experience. Not a Keeper, thank you very much.

First time visit, 4 of us. All good, service too, except that we felt rushed to order drinks, esp rushed to order food when we were clearly talking and catching up with each other and in no hurry... (DeeDee??), and then plates whisked out from under us the second we put our fork down. Slow down, Sally!!! We are not at a fast food restaurant!
Starters, entrees and drinks all very nice, enjoyed the concept and ambiance. We will return.

The bloody mary drink was terrible...so brown with L&P sauce. Also, we had to ask for water that arrived 30 minutes into our meal. The waitress didn't bus the table when she filled water, and we were obviously finished. Some fine tuning needs done. The food was great!

Food (grilled red fish) was nicely prepared. However, it was a bit salty. Otherwise, I would have given the Food rating at 5.
