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.

First time eating there and it was delicious. Service was good and they know how to make a good dirty martini. Right portion size and I loved their calamari. It was fried perfectly not hard. Definitely going back!

We had a lovely lunch at Lovers Lane Seafood. We had the shrimp corn dogs first, which were delicious, and then I had a bowl of gumbo. It was not the best gumbo I ever had, but it was filled with lots of great seafood and had a nice broth. In my opinion, it needed less chives and more file.

The very freshest of seafood, always reliable. Same suppliers as Shinsei, so you know the quality is great. My favorite is the Big Eye tuna, just seared rare - delectable. But for people who want some gumbo or sauces, that's good too. Nice selection of wines. Desserts are a bit predictable. Friendly service. Very busy at peak times, so reservations are helpful. There are some outside tables, a bar where most people seem to be eating, and live music on Thursdays.

Thursday's patrons on the patio could enjoy the beautiful weather and Austin-caliber music talent with the usual high standard of LS&M food and compelling visual presentation.

Lover's seafood is the standard for fresh seafood and creative dishes. Had a bloody mary ceviche that was the best I have had. Patrick and the staff are always great. Lovers is a place we can count on!

I’ve been to Lovers Seafood on numerous occasions. The food is always outstanding and service very good. I’m sure it’s difficult to find quality people now but in a restaurant like this, it’s critical. Our server was excellent as usual but the people hired to clear tables are clueless. No less than 3 times they tried to clear dishes when we weren’t finished. The restaurant was not crowded so there weren’t people waiting. We informed our server and the manager apologized but clearly training is needed for these people whose job is to clear dishes. It actually put a dent in a nice dinner.

Food was great, my daughter had the seabass that she said was the best fish she has had, and I had a great lobster roll with wonderful truffle french fries. My husband loved his shrimp and grits. Also the seared Ahi Tuna was highly praised. It was a wonderful meal.

Great food and service. Always a pleasure to come there.

Valet parking leaves something to be desired as valet sped off in my car to some unknown location when there were plenty of spots on site.

1/2 price bottles on Tuesday make Lovers Seafood even better! They are no longer serving the fried green tomoatos and that's a bummer. I can always count on the quality of the food and service.

Great food, great service. There was a small wait but we were seated at the bar then shortly seated at our table soon after. Server was attentive, food came out quick and it was all amazing.

Excellent food. The shrimp and grits are a must! The only ding I can give is there needs to be a couple fewer tables...it’s a little too cozy.

The seating is terrible. We sat in a line of rickety wooden tables each about 2ft by 2 ft.. There was not room for the plate plus glass plus other. We could not stand up without moving the table next to us and disrupting people. We are not having a glass of wine, we are trying to have a meal (at $100 a pop). Could they just get bigger tables?

I took my husband here for Valentine’s Day. I have been there several times and it was his first visit. He keeps saying how much he liked that restaurant. We had a great Valentine’s meal. Great service, good live music that wasn’t too loud for conversation, excellent food! I highly recommend it!!

Excellent food and wine, 2 of my guests had halibut and said
it was dry, 2 of us had scallops, wonderful, sides very good.
Noise level bit noisy. Waiter was ok, could have been a little
more friendly.
Will definitely come back

Very obvious they continuously overbook during peak dining hours. Arrived on time for reservation and waited 30 minutes to be seated (along with everyone else around us). A regular occurrence here.
