    Hannah was our attendant and she was great! Her attentiveness, poise and good nature made for an excellent experience. We were celebrating a business transaction and it could not have gone better.

    We did a nice bit of sampling when we visited Neighborhood Services, and were very impressed by each and every appetizer/entree/drink we ordered! The wait and bar staff and friendly and attentive so the service was top notch. This will definitely be a place I go back to when I have guests in town, special occasions, or just want a really delicious nice, meal out. The restaurant was a little tricky to find, I would just give that heads up to anyone who is going for the first time, there is not a huge sign with the restaurant name over the building or anything but Google Maps should get you to the general area. 5 Stars for Neighborhood Services!

    Great food, good wine, lovely drinks, and wonderful service - the only downside - noise level is much too loud to enjoy your food and company. The night we were there the music was loud, the table next to us was very loud, and we could hardly hear the waitperson even though they were practically shouting the specials at us. This restaurant would be perfect and more relaxing and enjoyable if they could find some way to make the noise level more tolerable so you can talk to others at your table without shouting or repeating yourself over and over. The restaurant did turn the music down after we complained for a time but it was up again later. This is not a restaurant for children either.

    My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner of steak and swordfish. Everything was cooked perfectly. Only downside to the meal was how rushed we felt. It was as if any time you weren't actively putting food in your mouth the waiter was trying to take your plate and move on to the next course. If you want a leisurely conversation over dinner, you might want to reconsider.

    Waiter was incredibly informative about the food and the restaurant, everyone made sure our experience was great. Our table was only 6" from the table next to us, which was a bit too close for comfort, honestly, since we were celebrating and hoping for a romantic date...but next time I would request a booth when I made the reservation and I think it would be fine. The biggest downside was how loud it was...there were times we had trouble hearing each other or our waiter. But the food was fantastic, creative enough to be interesting, but familiar enough to draw us in. And the service was quick, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back!

    It was our first time to Neighbor Services. We had a 6pm reservation and got there about 10 minutes early and were immediately sat down. Service was great, waiter was very attentive and knew the menu well. Appetizers were good, had Tuna Tar Tar and the Meat balls, preferred the meatball over the tuna. Two of our party had salads that they said were very good. Main dish, all had the fish dishes. All were very good with a lot of flavor. Shared a banana split for dessert, was really good. The only draw back I would say was the volume level. Our table was in the bar area where a lot of people waited for their tables. It was loud and hard to hear the other members of our party, but it won't keep us form going back.

    Decided to give NS a try because of the great reviews. Was definitely not disappointed. Very low key location and actually passed it the first time. Good thing gf had on the GPS because she said "we're here" and we still didn't know we were there until we saw the valet. Service was impeccable from walking in to walking out of the door. Server Erin was great - knew the menu - gave great recommendations and phenomenal service. Was also very accommodating with special dietary requests. Food was excellent - scallops/chicken were both great as was the garlicky spinach and braised brussel sprouts. Meatball appetizer had good flavor but not cooked enough for my taste. Overall a great experience - would highly recommend and will definitely go back!

    The meatball appetizer with Voodoo peppercorn sauce is to die for. We ordered another before our meal. Everything was delicious but it is challenging to have a conversation with the high noise level. Small wall sign in front makes it difficult to find.

    If you don't mind the noise, Neighborhood Services is a very nice dining spot. If you're looking for a quiet place or with a group trying to carry on a conversation, forget it. We could hear people 3 tables away shouting so those across the table could hear one another. The food is good. London Broil was very good as was the Lemon Sole, one of the 3 fresh fish specials of the day. The side of French Fries was disappointing. Tasty, but soggy.

  • Too loud
    DianeVIP
    Dined on 7/23/2014
    Neighborhood Services was way too loud on this visit on a Wednesday night. The table was so close to each other that the waitress had to stand on the outside of the table and reach across all four of us to serve two of us. It was not nearly as impressive as the last time we were there when we sat up in the bar area which was much quieter. The food was fine but if I can't even hear the people we are with, it will come off of our list.

    We found NSBG on a travel website, where it was ranked highly. Floored at the wholesomeness of the food and the action in the room. Starting with fried asparagas (tempura battered). Split the Delmonico steak (pricey); paired with brussel sprouts (a must have and so good that I ate the cold sprouts like candy the next day) and cheddar mashed potato (a bit heavy on the sour cream and perfectly light on the cheddar). We split the peach pie, where I did prefer the ice cream. The place was packed and so positive that we stayed for an apperitif. Will do this again!

    Neighborhood Services is "JUST OUTSTANDING" - has a "Southwest Clic interior ambinance", wait staff does an outstanding job explaining the entrees and special dishes of the day, and the food is very creatively prepared with excellent taste. A must is a reservation and several days prior to your dining plans. Make sure you have street address if your first dining experence at N.S. as is tucked into a "retail strip center setting" and has very small sign for identity.

    Enjoyed our second visit to NS. The food and drinks were great but not exceptional. The appetizers we had were the oyster shells that were very fresh and the lobster stuffed in eggs. They were out of the lobster that night so that was a bummer. I had the cod that was delicious but on this visit I had the sole that was okay. My sons pork chops were very good. I am sure we will go there again.

    My wife and I make this restaurant a standard Monday night date stop. It is so good that we recently shared it with another couple. They raved as much about it as we do. Yes it is incredibly busy - and it can get a little loud when they are full - but the food, service and experience NEVER disappoints. I am constantly amazed at how good their beef is - and my wife raves about their seafood. If you have never visited - you are missing an incredible treat - book a reservation soon.

    The evening started out with a rather unfriendly hostess - not accommodating! She put 6 adults in a tight fitting booth! We were there to celebrate a birthday and had to do some rearranging to make the booth fit 3 adult men - little tight. The server came to the rescue -friendly help and a solution per our suggestion. While we were changing the seating - the hostess walked by with another group and disrupted our change. She rudely said she was coming through - could have been handled better. (Like walking around the other side or holding group back) We will try again !

    We were celebrating our 20 year anniversary. The service was impeccable and the meal was delicious. Highly recommend the Butcher's Meatballs as a shared starter. They were flavorful, not greasy and resting in a voodoo peppercorn sauce that had a hint of Worcestershire. The Wedge My Way salad was split and more than enough to share. Served exactly as described...with spiced pecans, tomatoes and lots of bacon. My sole was lightly crusted with panko and pan seared. It was a 9x6 fillet and served with a side of beurre blanc. Truck stop chicken fried steak was about the same size as the sole and was served with a side of jalapeno gravy and mashed potatoes. NOTE: this is a LOUD restaurant. Not a place for romance or light table chatter.

    No one that just drives by this place would have a clue that some of the best food in DFW is available at what looks like just a "hole in the wall" in the Park Cities. Trust me - you want to stop (with a reservation)! This place is BUSY - but it has a cache of a secret club that needs a password to get beyond the door. We are slowly working through their extensive menu options - we have not made a selection that was not great. Do not miss their steaks - their beef is specially grown for them - it tastes incredible. The nightly fish specials are top notch as well. Don't forget to ask about off the menu wine choices - they always seem to have something special in the back room.

    I do like this restaurant. However, they make such a big waa-woo about their steak, and to me, if you are looking for the taste of a Del Frisco's or Bob's New York strip, well you will not exactly find it here at Neighborhood Services. You would have to try for yourself and see. Okay, well, I feel silly saying this, but the night we went to eat, the music was all 1970's rock. And a bit loud. I love oldies, but something about going to a nice restaurant and hearing Queen in the background is not helping anything....just my 2 cents. This place has great potential, but needs some outside opinions to improve. Howie - Fort Worth

    This was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I have had in Dallas. I went because D Mag rated this the number one restaurant in the city. The appetizers were good( the fried asparagus and meatballs) but the entrees were very bland. My boyfriend got the punk room steak, which was a bad cut of meat and wasnt seasoned well. I got the by hand noodles which were nothing special. I would not recommend this restaurant. The food quality does not match the prices.

    Recently visited this restaurant for the 1st time and were ready to go back the next day. 2nd time was even better than the 1st - and the 1st was spectacular. We are slowly working through their menu - so far - we have not found anything we didn't love. One of our new items on this trip was they call "Tortilla Soup Tribute" - very nice. (The NS chef spent some of his earlier years with Fearing at the Mansion - he duplicates Fearing's recipe as a tribute to another great chef/restaurant.) We also had a great off menu Cab - then created our own turf and surf - we split a Dover sole and a huge porterhouse sliced to split. We thought we would have a ton to take home - but it was so good we almost finished everything in 1 sitting. GREAT NIGHT!
