    We were disappointed in our dining at NHS. My Sauvignon Blanc was not chilled. The meatballs fell apart. They had no brushetta or focassia bread. They brought a roll in place of the focassia which was burned. Not a happy evening. We will take it off our list.

    Competent, business appropriate lunch. Attentive service. A little pretentious given the surroundings, but the food was less cheffy than the menu and waiter's descriptions. Similar to lunch in a well run steak house, just not quite as fancy or pricey. No complaints. Seems to attract a large number of lunch ladies (only 2 men on our side of the dining room when we were there).

    Excellent service by well trained staff. Did not have to wait long for order to be taken. The courses were well timed & the runner did not "auction" the food..."Who ordered the scallops???" Food contained fresh & well prepared ingredients. Very helpful for "gluten free" preparations on the food. Would have enjoyed more dessert offerings!!

    They make a great martini. The place is always busy, so you really need to make reservations. We arrived early to have a drink at the the bar before dinner. It was full. The food. was very good. I had the tuna appetizer. wedge salad, brossel sprouts and schnitzel. All was very good.

    I live a few blocks from this place and have driven past for years without going in. Completely unimpressive from the outside as it is in a shopping center. Go inside and WOW! I had no idea what was in there. The décor was funky Ralph Lauren chic and the food was incredible. I saw so many things I wanted that I had a horrible time deciding. We ended up with a special appetizer - pimiento cheese and a seafood specia - halibut. There is no question that I will be going back and it will be soon and frequently.

    ...for celebrating birthday with small group of friends or mid week treat. The entrees are always excellently prepared and consistently tasty. I am such of fan of the fried pies for dessert. These warm flaky pockets of joy are big enough to share although you don't want to.

    We had to wait even with reservations, the waiter was annoyed when my husband asked to switch from iced tea to soda. He asked "WHY?" My husband said he didn't care for the tea. He kept pushing, "It's lemon infused tea. Our specialty." My husband still requested soda and got more pushback. I finally said boldly, "My husband does not like lemon in his tea, so lemon infused iced tea is not to become him!" They forgot his birthday as we had requested, the fries and room service burger were so salty they were almost impossible to eat. The food was nothing spectacular - nothing we hadn't eaten at any other Preston Hollow/Park Cities venue Very loud, crowded and expensive. We had guests and chose not to make a fuss. We won't be back.

    I generally avoid noisy restaurants, even though I understand the vibe they generally seek, but I can't stay away from this one. The food is really excellent and anyone can find something they'll love. The hamburger is as good as a hamburger can be and their top steak is worthy of the best steak house. Great fish, great appetizers and really outstanding desserts. I particularly like the schnitzel with spaetzle and the steak frite, but everything is great. Reservations are a must to get in, though we usually wait at least 20 minutes even with reservations.

    The specials sounded fantastic but I went with grilled chicken sandwich which was superb! Our waitress recommended the deviled eggs for our app and we were very pleased with the selection since we couldn't make up our mind on which one to choose. I will definitely be back, great place for a work discussion.

    NHS is always first rate. We've been for both lunch and dinner and it's a lot easier at lunch, though the menu is not as extensive. The food is first rate (though I think the change of steak on the steak frites has not been as successful.) Service is always knowledgeable, timely, polite and friendly without being intrusive. I particularly recommend the Room Service burger, the deviled eggs, the fried asparagus and at dinner the schnitzel, the tenderloin and on Friday the meatloaf. Not cheap and still a bargain!

    We eat lunch here periodically as it is close by and usually has great food and service. Apparently it was an off day for the kitchen and wait staff. Our waiter approached us with "water is ok, right?" and promptly disappeared for 20 minutes when we ask for iced tea. We order the redfish special and fish and chips. We patiently waited 40 minutes with no sign of our waiter. When the fish dishes came they were properly done but had absolutely no seasoning. Such a disappointment, as their food and service is usually top notch.

    NHS Bar & Grill is a fantastic place for luncheon or dinner dining. It's one of my favorite dining spots in North Dallas. I had the pasta special consisting of salmon, bow tie and English peas. The sauce was simply amazing. My friend had the shrimp special and he was extremely complimentary. Great selection of wines by the glass or bottle.

    The best thing about NHS and Neighborhood Services is that the food is always exceptional, and they never deviate from their attention to quality. I eat both lunch and dinner here frequently, and have never had anything under- or over-cooked, soggy, unappetizing, etc. The good thing is, I know that if I was served something like that they would remedy it immediately. Focus on the guest experience is top priority, which has to be why it's D Magazine's #1 restaurant in Dallas (Top 100 Issue)

    We love our neighborhood spot. The food and service are always terrific. We love the variety of the nightly specials and the comfort of favorites on the menu. I get a night out of the kitchen, but the atmosphere and the quality of the food makes you feel like you are still at home. The staff is very attentive but effortless, which is really tough to pull off.
