  • "Was there for Final 4 from the Washington, DC area. Had reservations for 4 which turned out to be 20. Restaurant was able to accomodate the larger group with no problem."

  • "This spot has such good music, that you are able to get lost in and eat great food at the same time. The singing and instruments are on key and the presentation and staff just allow the food to continue dancing in your mouth with great taste with a twist."

  • "This place is a gem. This was my second time going and they did not disappoint. My waiter was energetic, helpful and consistently checking to see if we needed anything. Will be going back."

  • "We had a reservation for brunch, and it took quite some time for us to be seated because no one was at the desk when we came in. Once finally seated, we ordered a couple of drinks from the bar, and were told to help ourselves to the brunch buffet. We returned to our table, and waited quite awhile for some silverware. In fact, I had to send my 13 year old in search of some. We did not receive our drinks from the bar until AFTER we had finished our plates, despite the server coming by twice to tell us they would be right out. For the price, I expected better service. Will not be back."

  • "Have eaten here several times and NEVER been seated on time. Reservations were for 7:00 and did not get seated until 8:00. Manager apologized and offered a table with a better view of band and bar area. Service was good. Waitress tried her best to please. Her efforts and the food made up for the wait. We had the "wangs" as a starter and they were spicy and delivered hot. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and the side dishes were seasoned perfectly. The food, ambiance, band and crowd make this a great place. Unfortunately, there is always a wait to be seated even when the place is not crowded. The hostesses can be unprofessional and rude. If you go knowing the pitfalls and don't sweat them it can be an enjoyable experience."

  • "Buttons is a hip spot with an energetic bar scene and live music. Great for people-watching at the bar. The food is outstanding. Best chicken and waffles anywhere. The chicken was the juiciest and most flavorful I have ever had. The servers are are very attentive and engaging."

  • "Someone in my office recommended Buttons to me.I had read on line that they always seated people late even those with reservations.Not so! We arrived at 7:30 and we were seated at 7:30! The service was excellent as was the entertainment.Food was good but not exceptional. Would go back and try other dishes.."

  • "On a scale from 1-5 I give them a 5! We got there, has reservations and was seated almost immediately. Sat down a friendly waitress was there ready to help us. They had my favorite drink (which is rare) so they really already had me! We ordered and sat there in this awesome mood. Band was on stage jammin'!!! Food came, we ordered fish and spicy chicken, sides were greens, sweet potatoes and Mac and cheese. Somebody had grandma in the back THROWIN' DOWN!!! In the meanwhile band was still gettin it and playing all the right songs had many up on the dance floor! I absolute loved it! I will go back again and I recommend everyone to try it if you can!"

  • "The building is stylish and updated, but the booths are a little stained and worn. Otherwise, the place looks great, with modern lighting, stylish decor, and the rest appeared to be clean. I had the Chicken and waffles which were very good with collard greens that were absolutely outstanding. No kids menu, but it doesn't matter as server knew exactly what was on it. My daughter had chicken strips that were made to order and very tender. We finished up with the peach cobbler which looked fantastic, tasted good, but lacked something. The band started about an hour late, which was disappointing. Overall, great experience, with really good food, nice staff, and a great band. Buttons is on my list, and I will be back."

  • "Living in the Panhandle where there is not a lot of options, I wanted to do something special for my spouse for Valentine's Day. Being that we have been married over ten years and have "been there and done that" in so many other things, I needed something different ...a WOW experience. After speaking to one of my Metroplex friends, my friend suggested that we should come to the city and try Button's. So I decided to look Button's up on the web to read its' reviews. I was greatly impressed with the reviews, the menu, and the entertainment and decided to make reservations. Needless-to-say; it was defiantly a WOW experience. The employees were truly servants, the food was delicious, and the band was marvelous. WILL BE BACK!"

  • "I visited this venue with my 14-year old daughter, sister and boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. It was the first time for all of us. As I looked around at the décor, table arrangements, booths and stage, I determined that I would definitely be back for an evening visit. The environment lends to a romantic setting for great music and food as well as a great spot for hanging with friends. During my visit, I even noticed a group setting up for what looked to be a baby shower complete with decorations and cake. I could see using this venue to celebrate many more milestones. The service was a little lacking. Friendly waitress but with a thin crowd, we felt she did not give us much attention. Overall, very satisfied. Music was great!"

  • "Food and band were great. Loved the ambiance, there was even a proposal the night i was there (so romantic)! Our waiter was even great, low service score was for the rude hostess who showed us to our table and told us we had a maximum of 2 hours to "enjoy our dinning experience" So incredibly rude! Blocking off 3/4s more than of the parking lot for valet parking seems very excessive. As we were leaving also noticed there is a cover to enter after 8 pm. The parking, cover charge, and time limit policies are tacking in my opinion, just seemed like there were trying to squeeze as much money out of each guest as they could (and I don't consider myself a cheap person)."

  • "This was my husband and I second time to the resturant. The first time we went we had a 2 hour wait for a table and ended up leaving after having drinks and still no service. Upon the visti there it has been a two year span in between the visits and needless to say I wasn't that impressed. We walked in and got hit with a $10 cover charge each. So before even stepping in to the spot we had spend $25.00 between the cover charged and valet parking. Then we stood at the hotstess desk only to be ignored for the first two minutes by 3 hostess that were having a conversation VERY RUDE. Due to me actually reserving a table this time we did not have to wait. Yet I will not go back."

  • "I have been the Buttons in Addison a few times but this was supposed to be special because it was Valentine's Day. I made reservations for 7:30pm and was told it would be a 20 minute wait which turned into a hour. There empty tables and a lot of tables were waiting patiently for their checks that took forever. I liked the atmosphere with the live band and it was a little too loud couldn't hear while trying to talk to my boyfriend. The service was not on it's game this night but usually if I come it is pretty decent. My boyfriend didn't like the shrimp Alfredo but I liked my Shrimp, fish and grits. I would recommend going maybe during the week or weekends during the day. Subpar this night."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We made reservation for 7:30 and got to the restaurant a little before 7pm. We didn't get seated until 8pm. We were in formed that we would have to finish dinner by 9pm because other people made reservations for 9pm. I would never go there again we got seated late and then they tell us we have to be finish by 9pm."

  • "Very exciting place to be, the servers were very courteous. My boyfriend and I requested to be moved from where we were seated and the granted our request despite of them being busy. The band was very lively...the authentic soundz rocked the night!!!! The food was great and the waiter willingly agreed to give us a well cooked stake because we did not like the med rear.... we had a great time and even waited for some friends to come over without being threatened to leave because our two hrs. was over. Generally a place I would recommend to many others who love live band & a dance floor..."

  • "I made a reservation and when my wife and I went to Buttons, the place was not open. The reservation was for 7pm. If a place is closed during the normal hours someone at the restarurant should close their reservation availability. It is good that other restarurants in the area were open."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "I was surprised that they have a cover charge to eat, but then the menu states that the cover pays the live band that plays there. There is great music (mix of live band and DJ), so it can get very loud at times. Not necessarily a good pace for a first date when trying to get know someone. The food was very good. The portions were of a good size. I ordered shrimp alfredo and my cousin ordered the oxtails. The oxtails were DELICIOUS!! My alfredo was also pretty good, but I should have ordered the oxtails. Great atmosphere and VERY crowded."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Good music and the greens and steak were superb! My only concern was the fish and yams were not warm and the waitress was slow and it wasn't a full house at 10p.m. Other than that, We had a good experience. I will give BUttons another chance to make up for the food :)"

  • "You have a 2hr limit to sit at a table but do not receive your food until almost an hr later. At 7:30pm already ran out of half the items on the menu!! Walked over to the bar for after dinner drink since our 2hrs were up and stood there for almost 10min with no acknowledgement and needless to say we didnt get a drink because we were tired of being ignored! The last time I was there I discreetly (sp?) informed the owner that I witnessed a female bartender leave a restroom stall without washing her hands and go back to serving drinks and he just rolled his eyes at me! RUDE!!!! Been there 3 times now and will not return!"

  • "reservations Sunday at 1:30pm The Service started off bad. Brought me to a table unclean. I just stood there waiting. my guess came. She asked for tea. Never received it. Went to the buffet, looked picked over. We decided to pass and order off menu, Please keep in mind I have been at Buttons in Fort Worth and Addison. ordered the signature dish, Chicken and Waffle, the waiter tells us, we ran out of chicken they just got some in dumped into fryer you should be receiving your order in a bit. no jazz band was playing. booths pretty beat up. waiter/waitress not looking their best. Food arrived the chicken and waffle that you see in the pictures and known for was NOT the same. when I asked where is the sweet potato ponme fritas... no answer."

  • "Had Friday night late dinner with my girl, after working a late shift I was so looking forward to some good food and entertainment. Buttons did not disapoint. Chicken & waffles (amazing)!! The band, right on point. My only disapointment with the evening was the $5.00 cover charge at the door. Didnt quite understand this because we had a dinner reservation, so you mean to tell me I've got to pay to get in the door before I can eat your food. (Didnt make me very happy) Everything was spot on."

  • "It was a last minute decison to use opentable and reserved for dinner for two; yet, it did turn out to be an excellent one! Valet parking addtl $ 5.00 if you come in after 7 pm. We enjoyed the old school food good choices, wine selections be limited, but and stayed for a live band (started around 9 pm). Our server didn't give us suggestions since we never ask him at all, and all menus as stated. We tried meatloaf and salmon, and just love it! Small portions, but too filing for us. Overall, reservation is a must for Friday or Saturday dinner. Spent at least $ 120s, including tip for food and drinks for two hours."

  • "MUSIC IS EXTREMELY TOO LOUD! I was in there for dinner with friends on a Friday night and we were seating in the back and couldn't have a conservation without yelling at each other…then we still couldn't hear. The waiter had to yell at us to get whatever we wanted on the menu. And my 70 year old Mother wanted to go because she had heard so much about it, but she couldn't enjoy herself because of the LOUD MUSIC. It is no reason for the music to be that LOUD! I understand you have a live band, but the band doesn't have to play that LOUD! A LOT OF MY FRIENDS REFUSE TO GO TO BUTTONS BECAUSE OF THE MUSIC AND EXTREMELY BAD THE SERVICE AND THE MEDIOCRE FOOD!"

  • "The appetizer arrived at the table with the food which was lukewarm. The waiter did not ask if we would like to order drinks. Redemption came with a replacement appetizer, food reheated and dessert on the house for the table. This was my second experience while visiting the Dallas area. The food is always great! The band started about 40 mins beyond the scheduled time but the music was good old school. Really enjoyed it."
