    My boyfriend and I ordered the special and it was served nearly raw. Since it was a pork dish we had them cook it longer. When the dish was returned to us by the manager they were the same pork loins we had originally cut into and the manager left our table abruptly before making sure we were satisfied. When we cut into the twice cooked lions they were too tough to chew. At that point my boyfriend and I decided to just tell the manager thank you but no thank you and leave. When we did she apologized but did not offer any incentive to ever return there as a customer again. I was shocked and doubt I return.

    I was pleasantly surprised with my experience at Lark! I had visited for happy hour when it first opened and I was underwhelmed. However, brunch on Sunday was delicious. It helps when the weather was perfect too. We dined outside and each order something different on their varied menu. The fried egg sandwich was really good. Sourdough bread and a bit of gruyere along witha fried egg and bacon cooked perfectly. The potatoes were yummy and crispy. The only suggestion I would have to the restaurant is to serve with half the amount of potatoes and include some fresh fruit.

    We were going to a show in the arts district (which is right across the street) and had dinner out on the patio. The patio with views of the Park was great. Meat and cheese boards were great with wine or with house cocktails. Had a very nice lite meal. Can't wait to go back.

    Dined with a medium sized party prime time on a Sat night. Valet parking convenient and adjacent to the restaurant door, shielding us from the rain. Loved the rotating chalk artwork adorning the walls. Best meal I have had in Dallas in quite a while. Everything was fresh, seasoned to perfection, and interesting. Our party had the pork belly, hen, gnocchi, and scallops. Everyone left full and happy.

    Lovely site for restaurant, and nice trees on avenue. But atmosphere is somewhat frenzied. Music far too raucous and loud. Temperature too cold. Valets running constantly outside window did not allow for relaxed feeling.

    Once again, great food and cocktails (including a delicious virgin drink for a member of our party who did not wish to imbibe). Very good service - especially the server who noted the sun in one of our party's eyes and lowered the shades. My only critique: the ambiance seemed even louder than I remembered, and it was difficult to have a conversation. The server did lower the music a bit when requested. Still one of our favorites in Dallas!

    I thought this would be a wonderful place to celebrate my Father's 91st birthday. WRONG! Two of our three entres were dreadful. My Father's halibut (halibut is one of his favorite's) was thin, over cooked and dry. The yellow beans were tough and stringy. My husband's Thai Pork (Moo Krab) was pure fat and gristle. The garlic sauce was good but useless without pork. He ate 2 bites and didn't finish his meal either. Salads were very bitter-the lemon vinaigrette dressing didn't help. Expensive-especially for inedible food. We sent back more than we ate. The waitress was attentive and we appreciated her efforts on Dad's behalf. This was our first and last visit. We hoped for a memorable Birthday and we got one! It will remain one of our worst!

    This location was great for heading to an event downtown. The park across the street is a great place to walk after dinner. We loved the craft beer selection. Both of us chose 5 beers for a tasting Flight. Then we chose our favorite to enjoy during dinner. The menu was still for summer. I chose the hen and my spouse chose the pork and was not trilled. The waitress warned him it was "pork belly", but he was not prepared for a large slab of fat and having to search thru the fat to find the small amount of meat. Besides the beers, we also loved the salad we had before our entrees. The dressing was a very light olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Overall it was a great evening, but we both agreed the entree's were overpriced.

    Decided to give the place a spin with the girlfriend for date night after getting a suggestion from a coworker. We sat at the bar prior to our reservationwhich was great and had a nice selection of drinks that you'll be hard pressed not to find something you enjoy. Dinner had a great variety food choices and our waitress was fantastic as well. Great food, service and a nice atmosphere with the art on the boards around the restaurant.

    We ate here with another couple and had a lovely evening. Food was great and service was very nice. I had made a reservation days earlier but our table was not ready for 1/2 hour so we had a drink at the bar. The mixology offering was copious. I only wish the server had told us to check out the chalk artwork on the walls -- apparently it is lovely and we missed it.

    We had reservations and were seated quickly at our 4 top although there was just the two of us. The service was fast and friendly. My duck and my wife's shrimp were served hot and cooked to perfection. I chose a Pale Ale over wine from the most extensive list of ales, stouts and ciders. Great choice of wines too. We were celebrating our anniversary and they picked that up off our reservation, comping the desert. Great service without interruptions is a skill our waitress pulled off well.

    Apparently your reservation system does not accommodate us by notifying us when we seek and table for four and only a table for two is available. It gives no option to change from two to four and no explanation why we can't change the reservation. You should at least let the subscriber know why you are not allowing a change in number of seats in the reservation.

    Good food in a fun, energetic environment. Our waitress did not understand that lunch is supposed to move along...this wasn't food coming out of the kitchen slowly, I'm talking about the wait staff not taking our order for a long time during what is clearly a business lunch for 10 people. Most had to leave without dessert. Overall the food was quite good and love the atmosphere of chalk art.

    Service was good and attentive. Food was quite good. The lamb shank was falling apart, as it should. Flavor was good, and soaked into the accompanying pearl cous cous. Location i pretty cool. Just accross from the park. Be sure to Valet park. Otherwise parking is a bear. The only disappointment was the wine list. It was pretty short, and quite pedestrian. Just a few moderately interesting choices. Draft beer choices were just the opposite. Great selection of very intersting belgium imports, and craft beers. I wish the same energy was put into the wine list.

    I enjoyed the food and the drink selection at Lark in the Park a lot. The only problem with our visit was that we had to wait for about 20+ minutes after our reservation time to be seated. The bar area was a bit crowded so it was difficult to find a place to stand and wait. The service was good and our waitress made some great wine suggestions.

Jimmy was our server and made the night fun and was very knowledgeable of the menu. The meat and cheese plate is one of the best in town.

    Because the Winspear dining was booked, we chose to go to Lark on the Park for dinner prior to Phantom at the opera house. It was a good choice as we had plenty of time to eat, were not rushed and could walk across the park to the show. We had a very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable waiter. We had cheese plate appetizer with red wine, which consisted of three different cheeses, bread and raisins/nuts. My husband, who has to eat gluten free, ordered the special of the evening (which was GF) and I ordered halibut. Both meals were very good. I had a different wine with my halibut, recommended by our waiter. We had a small dessert, shared, and decaf coffee, both great. We enjoy this restaurant and plan to go again.

    Took a friend to brunch who hadn't been to Lark and my first time at brunch. Had the Tomato and Gruyere Tart and the Bagels and Smoked Salmon & Whitefish. The tart was just great, the eggs perfectly cooked and the shaved proscuitto was a nice touch. I loved the house smoked fish. The smoke was very light and made the fish really stand out with freshness and a tender texture. The house made dressed cucumbers and the Lebneh were a nice departure from the regular cream cheese side. Prices were fair and the service very good. Finished it off with a Butterscotch parfait with bits of toffee. The Bloody Maria was the right amount of spicy. One concern, the proximity to the park seems to draw people with young, noisy children. Go early.
