    The starter scallops were delicious, and included a jalapeno polenta that was AMAZING! the ribeye needed salt but otherwise was perfectly cooked. The Filet was excellent as it was. Creme Brulee was more like vanilla pudding with crusty sugar. Crust was perfect, but consistency of brulee was too thick and tasted too vanilla and not enough custard/cream-ish. The ambiance needs an update. Same peach colored table cloths and pale blue curtains from that 70's show. Overall good food. Will go back again.

    This restaurant is a gem! All the dishes are prepared in the classic style and every single item has its own flavor preserved. Then all the flavors from meat, fish, fowl are complimented by properly chosen vegetables and sauces. This is one of the best cuisines in the metroplex.

    My wife and I took advantage of restaurant week to treat my parents to a special night out, for their wedding anniversary. The special RW menu was varied and the portions were just right. The service was outstanding, the wine list extensive and the view unique. Over-all my parents, wife & I, were pleased with the choice to try this restaurant and make the long drive from Frisco.

    Absolutely outstanding. Great value. The service is second to none. Very attentive staff but not over-bearing. The food was excellent. Went with a party of 8 - and each entre was ordered at least once. There was not a bad choice. Cacharel remains this Fort Worth family's first choice for special events (and one night annually each Restaurant Week).

    We have been going to Cacharel for 28 years...and the food, service and ambiance is still wonderful. I love their escargot. It's made with grapes, mushrooms, pecans, cream sauce and puff pastry. Incredible!!! And their chocolate soufflé is comparable to a chocolate cloud with a big dollop of whipped cream. YUMMMMMMM! Can't wait to go back.

    Went to early restaurant week dinner on 8/9/14. Special menu choices were all excellent, no scrimping on size or quality. Service was not as prompt/attentive as usual, but it was very busy. Overall great dinner, and wonderful restaurant week choice. Wish they would leave papardelle with duck confit on permanent menu! It was one of the best entrees I'ver ever had there in over 20 years!

    Ninth floor with views of Arlington, this is a great place for an upscale, quiet evening of fine dining. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. I loved the food (as you could taste the fresh vegetables and meats without them being overwhelmed with seasonings). However, my wife (who likes spicy foods) thought it was a bit bland. We both loved the sourdough bread and the deserts.

    Our 11:00 lunch reservation on a Thursday, we enjoyed the place to ourselves. Service was great. Food was excellent. We didn't know what to expect having received 'not so impressive' personal reviews of the food. Most of my party went with the 3 course feature meal, which was awesome and just right portion sizes. There was a little flexibility with the selections in the feature. Very ornate and nice atmosphere. Of course, being on the 9th floor, we enjoyed spectacular views. One individual in my party was looking to make a reservation for a birthday lunch that coming Monday! Quiet kept fine dining experience secret in Arlington, TX!

    We were seated by the window which overlooked Six Flags. Very pretty panoramic view. Although we came a little early for normal dinner time rush, we were impressed with the service as well as the food. The waiter was helpful with menu selections and also allowed us to order items off the fixed menu portion. Crab cakes were delicious. Crab meat was sweet and it had a nice kick to it. The house salad with vinaigrette was fresh and the Cowboy steak was delicious. Only thing I would have liked was more of a charring on the outside of the steak. Overall great experience.

    Le Cacharel is really a hidden gem in Arlington. I'm not sure how many people know about it but I feel lucky to be one of them. The fixed price menu is outstanding. My favorites are the duck and salmon. The white chocolate cream piled with phyllo and raspberry dessert is my favorite dessert anywhere, hands down. This place is expensive, especially on a teacher's salary. But my husband loves it, so we come a couple of times a year on special occasions. I would say that the decor is a little dated (1992, anyone?), but once you get over the older table cloths and wallpaper, you can overlook those to stare out the window at the great views (no bad view in the house!), be treated to impeccable service, and revel in the amazing food.

    The menu is concise but offers options for every palate. The small plate starters and salads are flavorful and whet your appetite for the sumptuous entree ahead. This visit I ordered the pork chop. A massive portion of meat on the rib bone. Oh so tender and juicy covered with a brilliant wine sauce with julienned veggies and perched atop a mound of creamy whipped potatoes. It is difficult to have some restraint and save a little room for dessert when your palate is in love with your current plate, but the desserts are brilliant! I had the apricot soufflé. Decadent, fluffy perfection. The apricot was delicious, but ask your server if there is any chance you can get the Grand Marnier soufflé. It is simply to die for. Bon appétit!

    We don't live close so we went for a special occasion. Food was well prepared and outstanding. Service was also great. Since we had ordered from the key menu we were surprised the next morning when we checked our receipt we had unexpected charges; A "Feature Up-Charge" of $9.50 and an additional charge of $11.50 for an entrée ordered from the key menu. Could "Feature Up" mean elevator usage charge?

    Wow! This is a great place. The view of Six Flags is interesting but the food is incredible. Our salmon was cooked absolutely perfect. It was placed on top of artichokes and a wine sauce. I had salmon at another 4 star restaurant but in town but this was hands-down the best ever. The three course meal included a choice of salads and other items, such as escargo in a special wine sauce - hard to describe, entrees, and desserts. We chose a wine Château Moncontour Vouvray because it was cheaper than others. It turned out to be a great choice and I had to buy more when we got home.

    Cacharel is the nicest restaurant in Arlington--without a doubt! The consistency of the service, food, and atmosphere just cannot be topped by anything else here. We always leave there with a full tummy and a happy heart due to the wonderful reception that we receive every time. Whether it's a business dinner or a happy family occasion, or just a couples' treat, Cacharel is our favorite restaurant--and that includes those in Fort Worth and Dallas!

    We were disappointed on this visit. No one greeted us at 5PM. No reference to our 41st anniversary, as was indicated in the reservation. The steak had a lot of fat. My wife's dinner was very good. She selected the 3 course dinner. We did not select any wine because the evening was not up to our expectations.

    It had been almost 15 years since our last visit to the Cacharel and it was even better than we remembered. The service, the food, the ambiance, all contributed to a wonderful celebration of our grandson's graduation. Well done Cacharel! Hopefully we'll return again before the next 15 years have passed.
