    Eaten here many many times. I have enjoyed a dozen or so lunches and a few dinners as well. Recently did a special event in the private dining room and it was great as well. Excellent tap selection of local and trendy craft beers. Service is always attentive and more than happy to make suggestions and can navigate the menu for the non-foodies in the crowd. The location is perfect, adjoinging the Arts district and just a few steps from the Park....

    We attended the Lincoln Dine and Drive event, and my daughter and I were seated at a table for two, that had one tiny little votive that was so dim, it was like sitting in a dark corner, There was no overhead lighting. I had to use the flashlight on my cell phone to read the menu. The view was great though, as we were seated by the glass by the street. The cauliflower soup was delicious, but my market fish was rubbery, undercooked on one end, and carrot puree was tasty, but whatever the 2nd vegetable was tasted like burnt onions. It was a great opportunity to test drive a car that I am thinking about leasing, and also a great opportunity to try a restaurant in my neighborhood that I had not tried yet. I know you are thinking, "the meal was free, so why are you complaining", but I was so disappointed in the food, that I was glad it was gratis, and I most likely will not go back.

    This was our third time dining at LATP. While I certainly appreciate the seasonality of the menu, there is something to be said for having SOME choices. We were having a pre-concert dinner there and, frankly, my partner and I had a difficult time finding anything we wanted to eat on the menu. Appetizers are somewhat limited - and 3 of the available options are charcuterie and cheese plates. The pasta special was not much different than what was already on the menu. The pasta was well made and tasty and the cocktails are also well crafted. The restaurant is beautiful and in a great location. My advice is to check out the menu online before you reserve to make sure there is something there you are going to want to eat. Even the dessert menu failed to tempt - and that is pretty surprising given my sweet tooth.

We had to leave on short notice because we talked too long, but the waitress was accommodating and swift in helping is resolve our check. Will definitely be back!!

    the scallops and Thai pork were both phenomenal. the malbec short cocktail gave my party a reason to come back for a bar visit alone. our waiter recommended a great non alcoholic basil spritz error for me and I wish I could have one at every dinner at home. the meat and cheese plates were worth the money. the only thing we hoped for was more background from the waitstaff on cheeses. we are curious about the artisans and their story as well as how they were selected by the chef. overall, terrific experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    We were able to make a last minute reservation on Open Table and it was our first time to LARK on the Park. We found a seat at the bar to catch a quick drink before we ate dinner and the mixed drinks were amazing. I tried the Bonnie and Baye which was the perfect blend of tart and sweet. Our table reservations ran over and the head bartender offered to buy us a drink to make up for the wait! At the table our waiter was pleasant, although a little bit tardy in greeting us. We started with the Poblano Empanadas which were cooked to perfect with a warm poblano and cheese filling covered in a flaky crust. My husband and I both decided to try the scallops which our waiter assured us was one of the best choices on the menu. They did not disappoint! I can confidently say they are the best scallops in Dallas. Another really fun feature is the local art found on the four giant chalkboard walls. They were all Dallas artists/illustrators. Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant for intimate dates or group dinners as well.

    GREAT food, and the bar drink "Bramble On" is amazing. Having said that, this is NOT the place to go if you want to have a conversation with your guests (at least not on a Friday or Saturday night). It's very loud. If you're OK with that, rock on! If you're looking for an intimate place to visit with your date, skip it. Our server was outstanding. And the hottie who made my Bramble On at the bar would be my husband in a New York minute, if only. You MUST try the Lam Shank.

    We had duck, fish, lamb, and vegetable dishes. They all tasted great, judging from two Chinese (north and south), one Italian, and one English heritage cultures. Don't expect a super fast service, though. The restaurant was very crowded. It took some time for us to get food.

    We found this little gem from a friend who had been there. We absolutely love the ambiance, service and food, and have returned 8-10 times over the past few months (we don't live near downtown Dallas). We've done lazy Saturday lunches and several nice dinners - both with larger groups and just the two of us. The service and food have been great every time. Nice view of Klyde Warren park and a great post-lunch stroll opportunity on those lazy Saturdays. I highly recommend Lark.

    First time for my wife and I and it will not be the last. Love this place!!! The Artist Chalk paintings on the walls are really unique and very interesting. The bartenders made my wife a gin drink that she really loved and she typicality does not like gin. The appetizers were GREAT!!! Mussels were in a butter sauce that was to die for. Entrees were very impressive as well, I had the Duck Breast and she had Pork Cheeks!!!! Both were great however, the Pork Cheeks were one of the best dishes the two of us had ever had. Service was great!!! Angelica took extremely good care of us. Drink list and wine list were priced very reasonable. $$ The Place is 'A WINNER"

    We enjoyed our dinner at LARK. We would have liked it more if we could have visited with our dining companions. The music was so loud we had to scream at one another. We could hardly hear the server talking to us. We asked the music to be turned down which they did slightly. Other than that we enjoyed it.

    Very nice venue for foods, views and arts. I was a guest of Jose' Cruz, one of the artists; specifically, the piece above the grill window. We had a long, leisurely lunch and enjoyed it all. The staff is polite, quiet and attentive. Food was fantastic. We had a variety of plates and shared everything, much to our delight. (We are both artists and walked to the DMA afterwards in about two minutes.)

    I wanted to invited two special girlfriends to a pre-concert dinner. The experience was memorable. We all enjoyed the appetizers and dinner. We ordered the cheese platter and olive platter; both were a wonderful starters. For dinner, we ordered Moo Krob, Nova Scotian Halibut and Tako Poke. All three dishes were very appealing to the sight and to the palate; the sauce, the tenderness, the timing of the entrees to be served, and all the small details. We didn't drink this time, but the food provided all the entertainment. One small detail - the bread plates that were taken away when the entrees arrived, we feel we could have kept the plates. But this is just a small detail that didn't bother our overall experience.

    One is greated by a number of beautiful chaulk illustrations lining the walls setting the tone for a noteworthy dinner. unfortunately the food menu is unimaginative compared with the multitude of foodie venues in Dallas; nonetheless, New American staples are well rendered. given its location, this spot is great before a show at the DSO, ATT ctr, or Klyde Warren Park concert.

    This is the fourth time I have eaten Lark and each time the experience has been great. The service is quick and very helpful. The food delicious and innovative. Love the changing blackboard art. The setting is very comfortable with tables far enough apart so the noise is not nearly as bad as some restaurants. It is possible to talk with friends and be heard. One of my current favorites in Dallas.
