Lovers Seafood and Market is the second concept from Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing, the partnership that produced the local favorite Shinsei.

In an age where independent, neighborhood, specialty shops are virtually extinct, Lovers Seafood and Market is committed to the principles of personally providing our community exceptional quality, fair pricing, and excellent service. 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.

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.

The dishes were amazing. The portions were often a bit small for the price. But we will come back because the overall experience was terrific! Great neighborhood gem.

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.

The atmosphere was lively and a tad loud. Great raw bar. We had fish tacos and sole and seafood slaw. Only disappointment was the seafood slaw which I would not order again. You want Paddy for your waiter! He was perfection. Low key live music was great

Great little neighborhood spot. Seemed like a lot of the patrons knew one another. The hush puppies were light & fluffy, not dense as some others we’ve tried. My halibut was cooked perfectly, just a little salty. Overall, a nice night out.

Best fresh seafood I have had in Dallas. Perfect preparations.
Great service, knowledgeable staff. Perfect ambience as an upscale casual place, not too fancy, not too casual, just right for any occasion.

The next time we're in Dallas, this will be our go-to place! Terrific seafood--my husband said the blackened redfish was the best piece of fish he'd ever had--and we used to live in Florida! Lovely menu, great service, excellent food and enjoyed the wines by the glass.
