Felt like a VIP

Dined 3 days ago

From the moment we walked in and were handed champagne and a "teaser" from the chef, to the tasty biscuits served with dinner to the complementary taste of dessert, we felt like VIPs. The food and service are absolutely excellent.

Disappointing visit recently to Dallas Fish Market. The menu isn't very inventive, and the two fish dishes we ordered were very average. Clam chowder was gloppy, and the lobster appetizer was just plain confusing. The restaurant has been much better on other visits.

Great Business Lunch Spot

All of my business clients who I bring to the restaurant are very impressed with the high quality of food here. Most of them are surpised to find a great seafood-oriented restaurant in a city that is better known for great steak.

Has kind of limited menu, however, kitchen is extremely flexible & will prepare food any way one requests. My wild salmon was prepared alternatively for me in a nice mild sauce & served with basmati rice & asparagus- quite delicious! Was honestly ready to walk out after first reading the menu & the manner in which their dishes were served, but our savy server & cooperative chef totally turned things around for me. Would highly recommend the DFM & would definitely return while in Dallas.

Dined on March 5, 2016

everything was ok: decoration, welcome, menu, welcome drink, staff, music, even food was good and very well presented but because we come from New York we found the place and the area lack of ambience and vibrant spot. Dallas downtown needs to create a culture of dining out at night (few places, few people, few options). Was he have a good experience and the food was very good.

Busy but tasty

Dined on February 14, 2016

I was in town the day before valentines day and made my reservation through open table, I knew the hostess didn't want me to take up a 2 person table so asked if I'd sit at the bar so I said sure. The bartender was nice, but needed help, way over staffed for the eve of a holiday. He was rushed through me ordering but made a killer drink! The chocolate souffle had stunning presentation.

Will not return

Dined on February 13, 2016

We have been to Dallas Fish Market several times before for special occasions and EVERYTHING was always good so we were looking forward to dinner. To begin, we waited at the hostess area for a few minutes while several staff members passed us by. We were finally seated and waited about 10 minutes before our waiter asked us what we wanted to drink. I wanted a Mojito...they were out of mint. My husband ordered...they were out of Red Bull. This was at 5:00pm on Saturday, 2/13 (Valentine's Weekend). So we ordered alternatives and went on to browse the menu. Our waiter said we could order from the Valentine's menu or the regular menu. Well, my husband wanted Surf and Turf (which he had every time we dined there before), the waiter came back and said they weren't serving that. So he finally chose oysters and ceviche and I had salmon. The oysters were the smallest I've ever seen and my husband ate 1/2 the ceviche. My salmon was just OK. And all that was just for two of us...there were 6 people in our party. All of us left very unsatisfied. That'll be the last money that Dallas Fish Market gets out of us. We'll never go back.

Dallas Fish Market: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Dined on January 13, 2016

It was because of OpenTable I stumbled across this marvelous restaurant. I love seafood and could not have asked for a more delicious meal. I had the Fennel Coriander Crusted Ahi Tuna and it was phenomenal! My waiter, Will, made my meal even more enjoyable. He did an amazing job and took the time to get to know me. The ambiance was pure perfection. I could not have asked for a better experience!

Put this on your list of top restaurants

Dined on January 9, 2016

It was our first time there and we close because location close to Marriott and we love fish. What a lovely surprise. We got there early and we offered water or a chance to go to bar (restaurant had not opened yet). Once seated our waiter, William, was out within a minute. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and gave us some excellent suggestions for wines as well as the menu items. We were offered a glass of complimentary champagne and a small bite to excite our appetizer. The Caesar salad we split was excellent and unusual. William came to check on us and clear our plates at the appropriate time. We ordered a swordfish dinner and a salmon dinner. The fish could not have been fresher and was so moist. The sauces were excellent. After dinner, we had no room for dessert but we were given a little plate of lemon biscotti. We were impressed by the food and the service and all the little extras. The restaurant is divided into several areas with glass dividers so it is much quieter than many other places. Loved looking at the lights across the street too. We will certainly return and recommend this special place to others.

Dined on December 6, 2015

The ambiance is pleasant and inviting, but the wait staff and food options were extremely disappointing. The best thing were the biscuits, which were free. Our waiter was rude and officious, behaving as if he were beneath his service. The drink orders were confused twice, not boding well for the bar or again, the waiter. A good general manager could turn this place into the restaurant it wants to be.

Dinner

I'd gone for lunch a couple of months ago, and it was great. Based upon that, I decided to go back for dinner. As my star ratings describe, everything was great except for our main entrees. It simply was not good. I have no other way to describe it. The plates presented well; however, the food was bland; lacking flavor and zest. Unfortunately, there was nothing to make us want to return for another night out. :(

A pleasant surprise

Dined on November 10, 2015

The food was a bit of a surprise, albeit a pleasant one, in that there was an Asian 'theme'. I enjoyed a salmon dish over a seaweed salad with a sauce that was miso like. Very nice combination. With the name Dallas Fish Market this was unexpected. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Big D looking for exquisite seafood.
