A word from Cook Hall - Dallas
Cook Hall is a unique and modern take on an American gastropub. A bar-centric food hall where handcrafted cocktails are stirred, brews are drawn and small plates are passed, encouraging guests to share and engage. Cook Hall features regional American fare comprised of familiar comfort foods, updated and refined for the modern diner’s palate.

The menu focuses on shareable small-plates, which encourage groups to socialize in a convivial atmosphere. Cook Hall cocktail kits are available for guests to swizzle, stir and shake things up at their table.

Diner Reviews
  • "Considering the dearth of good dining options in downtown Dallas, this was a wonderful surprise. You just have to know where to go. We came after the rush had died down from the basketball game at the nearby American Airlines Center and it was fairly quiet. We ordered the short rib bolognese rigatoni and the pan roasted trout from the All Day menu - both were delicious and came without a long wait. No desserts or drinks as we had a race to run the next morning but would gladly come back next time we're in Dallas. It's only 1 stop on DART from downtown and has a lovely atmosphere and decor. My only grumble is the darkness, had to use the table candle to read the menu. But that seems to be par for the course at restaurants at W hotels."

  • "Great location and the gastropub had many menu items that looked delicious. Service was great, our waiter was very attentive. Many good drink options as well. We ordered the grilled cheese and burger, both were pretty good but could have been better. Our grilled cheese was light on truffle flavor and there was way too much bread to our preference. Didn't care much for the chips. Burger was fairly average but still good. Fries were a bit plain. Might give it another try to see if it's any better with some different menu items but it might be a while before we go back."

  • "food was fair, they were out of every wine we wanted, when the place became crowded the service went down the tubes--the place knew they would be crowded prior to the Elton John concert but did not hire enough staff so not only was the service slow but they tried to serve the main course before the salad and never got around to bring a second glass of wine. the food is fair but the overall experience was not one we would readily repeat"

  • "My family and I visited the restaurant on Valentine's day. My daughter was disappointed when the manager came to our table to inform us that they were out of ribs. The restaurant was not full but we had to wait a long period of time before we received our food. The waitress was really great and very attentive. Overall the experience was great and I will return with my friends because my family has already counted this restaurant out. The food is really great and the ambience is nice."

  • "A lot more full plates and a less small plates then I would expect for a gastro-pub. The food it self was good, but not as outstanding as to justify the prices. The location though is great if you are going to the AAC for an event. Use the complimentary valet, get validated, and enjoy super close parking."

  • "Great Food, limited menu. Calm laid back atmosphere. Good escape from the Rowdy scene next door."

  • "Perfect atmosphere . Great for romantic dinner or just a night out with the friends . We went before the mavs game and unfortunately were in a rush. The kitchen is a little slow but the food made up for that . Seared tuna salad was out of this world. Loved it! My husband had the cornflake fried chicken. He cleaned the plate. Our server was very polite and attentive . We will definitely be recommending Cook hall To friends and family. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We've been twice now - once for Christmas dinner and once for Brunch. I would definitely return for brunch - it was a great experience. Attentive Service. Great Food and Relaxing atmosphere. I would not return for a special occasion meal like Christmas dinner. Service was lacking and the quality of the food did not match with the price level."

  • "Waited 45 minutes for our appetizers. After our waitress forgot about them, we asked and were finally bought out a less than mediocre salad. 30 minutes later, I get a signal from the waitress, assuming that she was signaling our dinner was finally on its way out. Boy, were we wrong. She actually brought us our bill, and apologized for the delay. No main course. Confused, we asked about our main course, and she looked at us like we were the crazy ones and went to go check on it. Ten more minutes later, we get a plate of macaroni and cheese. At this point, we just asked for our bill and cut our losses. The group next to us happily took our untouched macaroni and cheese. Their offering to buy us drinks was by far the highlight of our evening."

  • "Wow - this is what replaced Craft! After the cheese plate the food had no flavor! Perhaps you should ask Tiffany Derry to come and be your chef!"

  • "I was super annoyed that when I made reservations they didn't inform me that there would be a small "event" menu do to a concert at American airlines. There were only 3 entrees to choose from. They also were not making specialty cocktails. The restaurant wasn't even crowded. Overall, are food was pretty good. And this place is adorable inside. I just wish we could have ordered off the full menu."

  • "I made a reservation for dinner with clients. The client I was with chose 3 different bottles of wines of which none were available for purchase as the restaurant did not have what was on the menu. The manager recommended an Italian wine, which was very nice; but not what we were looking for. Dinner took over 4 hours and it wasn't that busy. Not sure if that is the intent or not; but it seemed to take a long time."

  • "The service was excellent! A great place to grab a bit before an event @ the AAC. Here's the best part free valet! Not only do you get a great meal you save 20 - 50 bucks on parking for an event @ the AAC!"

  • "Great new incarnation of a space formerly occupied by Craft inside W hotel...across from AAC and love the new look, menu and concept. Outstanding food and service tops off an inventive menu."

  • "This was our first visit and we loved everything. Especially enjoyed their specialty cocktails. One caveat re noise level : we were there on a Sunday evening and there were very few people in the restaurant. We tried to go on Saturday and it was packed; we couldn't get in. I'm sure I would have rated the noise level 'energetic' at that point. We will definitely make a return visit!"

  • "It might have been better if the dinner had been worse; at least we would have a story. The food is OK. The service was OK. Too expensive for what you get. Understaffed, but everybody worked hard. I felt sorry for the manager, he seemed to be running around filling in . Several reviews mention special event menus. It did not occur to me this is in place every night there is something at the AAC. If that is the case, I wonder when do they ever have a full menu? The AAC is booked 150-200+ nights a year. This restaurant is across the street! I understand event menus allow kitchens to work efficiently, but I wonder if you are across from the largest venue in Downtown & can't due full a full menu, then maybe you are doing it wrong."

  • "There was a very limited menu as it was an "event night". Limited options are fine provided the food is decent quality. Our chicken was overcooked and cold. Almost like the chef cooked it to death, immediately sliced it, and then left it out on the counter for 30 minutes before serving it to us. Pasta was ok. Salad was pretty good. Our bartender was in the weeds according to our waitress and boy was she right. Took over 20 minutes to get our first round and they were not made well at all. Ordered a cocktail and they brought me tonic. There are too many good options in Dallas. I would avoid Cook Hall."

  • "Had dinner before the Eagles - limited 'Special Event' menu, and fewer Gluten Free choices for me... though what was available was great! I had the burger (without the bun), and my husband had the crispy lemon chicken - both were excellent. Ramsey did a great job managing my food restriction on a busy night, and the kitchen seemed to take seriously - thanks!"
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Because of the Eagles concert next door, there was only a limited menu and service was slower than expected. The drink I ordered was very average.The place has lots of potential, but for the price they command, being very busy as they were that night was a strain for them. I will try them again on a non-event night to see how they compare."

  • "Service was bad! Did not talk to our server for 30 minutes at one point."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "Had reservations before the Eagles concert. They were ready with a limited menu so the food came out quickly. The food was ok, nothing special. Too many other places to try before I'll go back. I wouldn't tell someone not to go there but I also wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it. The drink prices were ridiculously high. A glass of chardonnay (which was not good) and a Vodka tonic for $21."

  • "went for lunch on a monday and very quite. they have some specials plus a solid menu. THe fish tacos were very good (asked for the fish sandwich to be on a taco instead) as was the minestrone soup. Lots of good beers and mixed drinks for later in the night. Everyone enjoyed their meal and it was fairly priced."
