    I would say the dinner was average. I was expecting more for the price. For $150.00 for 3 guests with no drinks I expect more than average. The food was good, but was only lukewarm. The service was good but did not make me want to tip anymore than average. The last time we were there it was a wonderful experience. This time, we said we wish we had gone to Bob's or Ruth Chris. I just felt a little cheated for what we received verses what paid.

    Restaurant was obnoxiously loud. Band playing was overbearingly noisy. Bar was overrun with local wanna be crowd that was dressed for Walmart and shouting to fellow patrons as if in a saloon. The steaks were not bad but too much fat and low quality for the price. Wine was overpriced low quality selections. We paid for the equivalent of a steak dinner at The Palm and received above average Outback. This place tries with some effort to be so much more than it is. Much better available in the area for the price.

    Enjoyed Restaurant Week menu. Been to Kirby's many times, and it never disappoints. Service was attentive and caring; even the parking valet was super-friendly. Pork tenderloin was perfectly cooked and flavorful, and the dark chocolate tart with orange slice was nice ending to a well-prepared meal. Only minor complaint is over-priced wine menu, but must compliment the wine steward for not trying to "upsell" the wine offerings. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.

    Food was not good! The steak was red inside when I ordered well done and full of grissel. I ordered extra cheese on the side of the baked potato and did not get it. Waiter did not check to see how the food was until we had finished or I would have sent the steak back. It had been several years since we had been to Kirbys and we plan to never go back so I am sure it won't make any difference to them. I know Mr Kirby would be very unhappy with how his place had turned out.

    Made a reservation for our 26th anniversary. This was mentioned in the remarks of my online reservation. Extremely crowded and noisy in the room we were seated. We usually receive very attentive service, a $20.00 gift card for future use (which keeps me returning annually) and a free desert for our anniversary. None of that happened this time. What can I say?! I must just be spoiled rotten. We will probably try another establishment next year.

    Service and ambiance superb; however food was less than great. When spending what I consider pricey dining, I would think the food would be more than excellent. Started off with clam chowder,, which was not at all what I consider good! Very strange taste and unable to eat. Then when received the lobster and steak, the lobster was not sweet (even though very tender) and also had a hint of same taste as the chowder. My steak was what I consider burnt on the outside (very black charred). When I wanted an "out of this world" dining experience for this special occasion, I felt this fell extremely short of that.

    We had a party of 6. For the past 5 years we have spent an evening at Trulucks but gave your place a try. One guest had to send their steak back because it was too well done and he had ordered it rare. We were all completely finished with our meal by the time his steak arrived. My husband was very unhappy with his steak. The banana foster was HARD AS A BRICK!! THE WORSE DESSERT I HAVE EVER HAD!! We did not have a good experience!! However, Keith, our waiter was excellent and he brought extra blue cheese olives for our martinis. He made the night better but the food was very disappointing!!!

    Service....very, VERY slow. Our waitress came over many times (too many) to complain & apologize about the problems they were having with the machines, overcrowding and kitchen. We knew it was slow & gave up on pre-drink cocktails because 25 minutes in & they hadn't arrived yet. Next the food. Ceaser salad was dry, flavorless whole pieces of romaine with not much else. Shrimp in my surf & turf was very average. Now the steaks....ordered rare to med rare. They were all blackened, charbroiled on the outside & al overdone. One member of our party took his home for the dog. No time to send them back.Dessert, some banana thing, was like hard dry cake with a scoop of ice cream. I had to use my steak knife to cut thru it! Will not be returning

    My wife and I went for a night out. Service by our waiter was just ok, though other servers helped him. Since we ate at 5:30 on Saturday and it was not very busy, we were a bit curious. The food...the salad was very good, the bread very hot. Our steaks came out near perfect. Might be one of the most tender steaks I have ever had.

    Having been to Kirby's many times before, I jumped at the chance to go again with a friend; however, it was during "restaurant week" and every table was filled. With bar chatter & music, the noise level was way too loud for conversation. My steak was well-done when I ordered "medium". I did not send it back for fear that I wouldn't get food for quite awhile. So, I picked at it and ate the remainder of the meal. The mashed potatoes were really good, as usual. The waiter accomodated me with a lettuce & tomato salad vs. the three options on the special menu :) The chocolate desert looked prettier than it tasted; however, it was OK. My recommendation is to try them on a week night - not Friday or Saturday.

    Not as exciting and innovative as previous Restaurant Week at Kirby's. Desert choices were disappointing, appetizers were very good, and entrees were lackluster. We are frequent diner's and enjoy the regular menu and so we like to try the Restaurant Week menu for interesting options. This past week's option did not hit the mark.

Enjoyed a very nice dinner for a special occasion and staff was attentive not rushing us out the door but allowing us to visit and enjoy our dining experience. I certainly will return for another visit. Only distraction was the noise level which was very high this visit.

    We go every couple months sometimes taking advantage of some promotion: Special prices on bottles of wine or restaurant week. To start, their bread is fabulous: real sourdough. Service is always right on without being intrusive. All the menu items are yummilicious. Yesterday we had a special appetizer that was not something I would order again...a tenderloin spring roll with chili sauce. Not their fault. It was too beefy and too big for an appetizer- filled me up, but my husband loved it. The steaks and sides were perfectly cooked and dessert the right size. Great wine list, too. It's where we go for a quiet elegant steak dinner.

    I wanted to try this restaurant for a while and decided to go for my husbands birthday. I was surprised for a fine dining establishment to find the tables very close together and the noise level as loud as it was, particularly on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was very busy and while I am accustomed to having a set amount of time given for each course, the time we spent for three courses seemed excessive. We enjoyed the steak and our wine, but the sides and salads were so, so. Too many other really good steak houses in the area to make this one a regular.

    My husband and I have been dining at Kirby's (Southlake) since it opened 15 years ago and have never been disappointed. Great bar atmosphere - Teddy, Chris & Max have all been there for years and make an exceptional and near-telepathic team - your glass will never stand empty :-) The dining experience is great whether you're an intimate party of 2 or a corporate group of 20+. (I really like the cozy area behind the fireplace for small groups - it's called "the library.") Wine list is extensive with a nice balance at all price points. For steaks, I put them up against Del Frisco for the best in the Metroplex. (Apologies to Bob's - a close 3rd.) P.S. Order some Pickle chips & Tequila shrimp while deciding on the entrees. Yum!

    This location is 30 miles from our home but was well worth it. We were sad when the Plano location closed and love the one in San Antonio. It had been a while but the menu is still great and had several seasonal offerings. My wife had surf and turf and I had the bone-in filet. Both were outstanding. I didn't remember their wine list being this good and had great choices in all formats. The hostess worked hard to make sure we were well taken care of. The only drawbacks were that our waiter seemed stretched and frazzled (but trying hard) and the acoustics are terrible (lots of noise/echos). I also had 2 kids in the booth backing up to me who kept jumping up and down in the seat (but that was their idiot father's fault, not the restaurant's).

    This is a "go to" place for us. Love Blake and Fallon & go whenever they're playing in the bar/lounge area. Nice area w tables. Food is always consistent and service is usually good. They were really busy so we were happy to see that but they were a little slow on service which is unusual. Didn't matter bc we wanted to stay for the music anyways. Pepper steak cooked perfect, tuna cooked perfectly (rare but not cold). Chocolate spice cake is delicious!
