    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.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    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.

    Staff were terrific. Allowing a change of tables to a more intimate table. Food was terrific and steaks cooked to our requests. 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.

    We started with their Maryland Style Crab Cake and it was a delicious tower of crab. The Tournedos Béarnaise and Roquefort Filet were well prepared, and thankfully so, as our server never asked. Our server was not up to the usual caliber for Kirby's, but the food was.

    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!

    Food & Service were Fantastic. We started with the Chef’s Seafood Appetizer Assortment (delicious & perfect portion size for 2). We both had incredibly prepared Filet Mignon (I had the Roquefort Filet, my wife had a Smoked Filet from the 'Specials Menu'). We split generous side dishes (we took home leftovers) of Fresh Sautéed Vegetables and Jalapeno & Bacon Mac and Cheese (my favorite). We shared an amazing bottle of Cabernet from their excellent wine collection. We finished with one of the awesome chocolate deserts & 2 forks. This was a very enjoyable Wedding Anniversary Dinner... So far, our best while living in Texas (moved here a few years ago). For a good laugh, all men diners should visit the restroom (hilarious artwork over urinals).

    Can't believe we missed this for so long. The epitome of fine dining...and the food to die for...the Tournedos Bernaise melts in your mouth. But after an excellent meal with wonderful service, the icing on the cake was the dessert menu. FINALLY, light...and chocolate...desserts to tempt a lady's heart...even after a five course meal. And the dress code, while not super casual, was relaxed and welcoming. All in all, our new venue to head for after a stressful day (sans children) or any ole time at all.

    Our friends recommended Kirby's and we tried it for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. We were pleased with the excellent, attentive service from our knowledgeable waiter, Nick. We started with the deep-fried asparagus. I had a very flavorful lobster bisque and my husband had a seafood salad. We had some beautifully cooked (although rather liberally salted!) steaks. We had a scrumptious lobster risotto and creamed spinach for our sides. These, along with the house salads that came with the steak made for a lot of food. We ended up taking home enough to have a lunch the following day! Because it was our anniversary, they boxed up a free carrot cake for us to take home and gave us a $20.00 gift card - a lovely touch!
