    We arrived a little early for our 7:00 PM dinner reservation to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary and were seated immediately. It was a Saturday night and there were already lots of people - yet the ambience was perfect and we did not have to shout at each other or overhear other conversations. The bibb lettuce salad with apple was a little overdressed, but was delicious. The tilapia also excellent! My husband's flat iron steak was great, but I would not have paired it with French fries. Very nice experience overall and we will be going back again.

    The overall operation of the restaurant and service was very mediocre. When we got there, the restaurant was not busy, yet it took them time to sort through where to put us. When they did set us, they put us at a table that had terrible lighting in the middle of the dining room. When we asked to move, it appeared to cause a lot of issues for them. The service was also mediocre; servers would reach over people to pour drinks and the waiter appeared stiff and not traiened properly. My dish was blackened tuna, which was not good at all. The food was drowning in whatever sauce was supposed to be on it. When the waiter asked about dessert and we mentioned soufles, he informed us it would take 45 minutes, which is pretty dumb.

    We enjoyed our restaurant week lunch at Cadot's. $25 is a good price for what we had. Our chicken/mushroom crepes were fabulous. A little disappointed in the dessert. A small imitation of crème brulee in a chocolate cookie crumb tart crust. Needed a better explanation of what we would be getting so wouldn't be disappointed that there was not a caramelize topping on the crème brulee. It was good, just not what we expected.

  • Restaurant Week Strikes Again!

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    It is unfortunate that our anniversary falls within the annual restaurant week event in the DFW area when the crowds descend in droves upon all the restaurants in DFW. Cadot was overbooked and even though we had a reservation (on July 6), we had to wait to be seated. That aside, the food was outstanding and the table service was impeccable. In my opinion Cadot offers the best French food outside of France. If you like French cooking Cadot is the place.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    My and my 7 month pregnant girlfriend went here for restaurant week. We were in the adventurous mood an decided to try this. Made reservations at 7:15, we got there at 7:17 and the place was packed, we couldn't get a table inside due to the overflow of customers and had to sit outside (luckily was pleasant) long story short, the waiter/resses were rushed, they were very busy and you could tell it in their voice; in which overwhelmed my girlfriend and made her cry. but alas, they all have good hearts and apologize when they realize what they did. The food was excellent though, timing was long, but worth the wait. If you are into French type food, this would be the place for you.. But as for an 'adventure' stick to a Brazilian Steakhouse.

    This restaurant is typically one of my favorites, but NOT during restaurant week. It was incredibly crowded...I'm sure that our waiter was overwhelmed, but he was rude and neglectful of our table and others around us. The food was good, but again, lacking from a typical (non-restaurant week) experience. We did not order off the restaurant week menu and maybe that's where we went wrong, however we will never go back during restaurant week!!

    In a run of the mill strip mall in North Dallas hides a little gem of an oasis. The staff is attentive without intrusiveness. the food is inventive without being bizarre a decent wine list and some notable desserts. All at a price point that, while making this mostly a rare treat for most of us, if you are careful, is affordable as a once or twice a month place.

    Wonderful service and food was very good but I question putting flat steak on a $45 menu. It was a little tough although the sauce was good. Chicken and Talapia also on the $45 menu. Some of the $35 restaurants I have tried so far had filet and salmon. More upscale choices. We have eaten at Cadots several times before and never disappointed.

    We visited Cadot during Restaurant Week 2014. The cuisine selection, taste, and friendly service exceeded our high expectations. The sea bass and shrimp crepe and tilapia on risotto entrees were delectable as were our salads and desserts. As seems to be customary, the chef came out and visited with the patrons. We enjoyed an engaging discussion. We look forward to future visits, especially for lunch and to try one of their soufflés.

    This wonderful little French restaurant has the best food, the best chef, the best service, the atmosphere makes you feel like you were transported to Paris. Beautiful artwork, looks like a museum, and all paintings are from the owner/chef's mother still living in France. Wonderful dining experience, it's like a little piece of Paris with such wonderful food, authentic wonderful food.

    Food was definitely over priced. Onion soup on the bland side, one of three scallops was bad, veal had extreme lemon flavor. Paid with a open table check and reward debit card. The open table check amount was not taken off the total bill amount, so we were over charged.

    We normally dine at Lavendou, another French restaurant down Preston. Thought we'd try Cadot as reviews were good. Unfortunately, our experience was just average. The restaurant is attractive and the atmosphere very pleasant. As another reviewer commented, our server recommended the most expensive items on the menu. My duck was fine but drowning in sauce. The squash was tasty but the haricot verts over cooked. My husband's scallop and shrimp entree was fine, but the French onion soup lacked richness. The by the glass wine list was limited and did not offer many French wines. Perhaps it's that we have dined out so many times that nothing is different or special anymore. But we have a certain expectation at a fine dining restaurant.

    We had reservations at Cadot for our anniversary and loved it. The food absolutely tasted fresh, like we were eating in Europe. Chef Jean-Marie Cadot came over and talked to us about our meal and our dining experience. We talked about his approach to cooking and his culinary influences. My wife had the halibut special, which tasted like it had just come out of the ocean -- tender, flaky, with a delicate flavor. I had roasted duck, which Chef Cadot explained was cooked on a rotisserie so that it remained moist. The duck was moist and succulent -- one of the best duck dishes I've every had. The gastric sauce added just enough orange and ginger flavor to compliment the duck taste without overpowering it. I wish we'd found Cadot years ago.

    Nice dinner - no recognition for our anniversary even though noted on reservation. Good service and quality food. Very close to our home so less travel was bonus. Did notice another table was receiving extra attention - not sure why but it was obvious. Recommendations: (2) glasses of champagne or at the least a rose and verbal comment. My husband and I have been married 41 years and selected Cadot for our anniversary dinner. Most folks will never celebrate that many years of marriage. Please keep in mind that special days are "special" for a reason and should be acknowledged.

    Outstanding and consistent. some restaurants do one or two dishes very well and the rest are average or they have three good nights and an off night. with many places, if dinner is great then desert is average but Cadot does everything well, every time and the deserts can rival anything in Dallas. great service, great food and value for your money. you cant beat that. the steak frite is top nothc, as is the duck, only rivaled by the short ribs and moving into seafood is also a delight. the mussels appetizer is a big winner as is the escargot. the Beignets are outstanding as is the apple tartin but you cant go wrong with the souffle or any desert on the menu. Magnifique!

    Chef Cadot never disappoints. He and his staff always pay attention to the details which results in a near perfect dining experience. Chef Cadot's menu is always lending it self to seasonal offerings and he prepares each dish with the touch of the great French chefs before his time in the kitchen. Simply the best soufflés in Dallas bar none which is also the mark of great chef. If you go there often as I do, then this review just reinforces what you already know. If not, then join us in sharing the best little known secret in north Dallas.

One of my friends in my Jazzercise class highly recommended it, so we thought we'd give it a shot. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. My husband and I always share dishes, and that wasn't a problem at all with the waiter. It was a nice leisurely dinner experience and we'll definitely return!

    Though a late lunch, still quite a few others around us. Decided to sit outside on patio which was very pleasant. There are fans which didn't need to be used at this time. The food was prepared as requested (we had a special request) and they were very accommodating. We didn't get forgotten out there but then was left alone to chat after settling the bill, etc. No rush to leave. Overall a great experience!

    We have been to Cadot a few times and the food has always been a good experience. Bread, Sea bass, soft shelled crab, veal and tuna tartar were all outstanding. The filet was good, but not at the same level of quality. Wait staff were attentive and waiter almost came by too often to talk to us. May have been a coincidence, but all of his recommendations, regardless of category were the most expensive things on the menu. Those may be the best and certainly what we had was good, but it always makes me wonder when only the most expensive appetizers and entrees are suggested. That said, it was a nice time and we will certainly be back.
