    Our food was good and service was excellent except our server had very bad body odor that was distracting. Our only other issue was the dessert menu. Our party of 6 could not find one dessert that sounded appetizing. We ended up going to another restaurant for dessert.

    Get a 6:30 dinner reservation for a 8:00 concert. Parking was easy, walking to the arena was easy. Bar was inspiring - too many "have to trys" - so we will be back! Beer selection is wonderful, the tarragon-infused "Mule" was refreshing rather than cloying. Seafood is handled very well here, I recommend the mussels as an appetizer. The chalkboards are brilliant!

    This was our first visit to this great location. The service was spot on..always there when you needed but never over bearing. The food was tasty and portions were edible size. The only complaint was the row of tables where we sat had NO lighting. It was if we were eating our meal in complete darkness..we had to take out our cell phones to light up our plate so we could see what we were eating.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Lark on the Park on Saturday, Oct. 11. The food, service and atmosphere were all great, but my Manhattan was exceptional. The best I've ever had in Dallas - just the right amount of sweet, smoke and bitter. Lovely! Don't know who the bartender was, but I wish that I did!

    Great location with an outside patio and easy valet. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Menu included the usual brunch favorite drinks but also included some new twists (ask about the mimosa of the day). The tart with mushrooms and arugula did not disappoint, and the baked french toast with apples was a tasty rendition on a classic. Definitely going back to explore the menu. Dogs allowed on the patio and provided water bowls.

    The bar tenders are really great! Lots of knowledge about the drinks, which are fun and unusual- and good! The menu is great for groups- we started with both the meat plate and the cheese plate, plus some toasted nuts- YUM!! All the meals were great- I was a little disappointed that for $31, I only got THREE scallops! If it hadn't been for the appetizers, I would have been still hungry! Better bets were the pork & beefs choices.

    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.

    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.

    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.
