Pappas Bros. Steakhouse
We arrived on time and gotWe arrived on time and got to our table right away. The steaks were excellent, not so crazy about the mushrooms but the dessert was excellent also. The server was very attentive without hovering.
The only downside was the noise level. It was just me and my wife and we were at a two top table in a seperate room from the main dining area which was fine except two large groups were also seated in that room after we arrived and the noise level was so hig it was difficult to have a conversation. Partly my fault though, I should have asked for a different table when I saw the table set for 12 an another for 10 in that small room.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTstanding Steaks and ServiceThere are many choices in Dallas for a steak dinner. In my opinion, Pappas is a real standout. The Filet Mignon had great flavor--charred nicely on the outside. The side dishes were equally great. Service was excellent and before dinner, the bar staff were attentive and welcoming. We were celebrating my son's college graduation and they were nice enough to comp the desert for him--which was OUTstanding as well. The waitress gave us plenty of time to eat, digest and relax before we departed happy and looking forward to our next celebratory outing at Pappas.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother' day dinnerWe had a great time.

If your experience isn't outstanding it's because you don't want it to be.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceSpecial occasion was made perfect by eating at Pappas Steakhouse. Delicious signature bar drinks were available. Great wine selection. Steaks were fabulous, not to mention the sea bass. Will be looking forward to another special occasion!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and Amazing WineI took my husband for his birthday, and it was fabulous! Definitely a top steak restaurant in Dallas. It is not inexpensive, so it will surely be a special occasion destination for us, but I loved the experience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat to CelebrateWe were well cared for for my son's graduation dinner. Not being able to get a later seating we opted for an early dinner but were seated near the kitchen. Not awful but perhaps a little more noisy compared to other sections of the restaurant where we've eaten before. But the service and the food more than made up for the activity near us. Recommend without hesitation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but the table location wasn'tThe experience was first rate but I would absolutely request a table location rather than let them place you. We loved our meal, the service was excellent, but they stuck us at a table that felt as if we were placed in the back, out of site, out of mind. Obviously the locals get the better seats.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal and great srvcEverything was great but the one minor hiccup was that we ordered our steaks medium and they came med-well. We told the waiter simply so he could tell the chef as we were still happy with the meal and were not looking for any compensation but felt that the chef would liken want to know.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but goodThe bill was over $100 per diner; we really were not extravagant. Having said that, it was great food and great service.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness dinnerAs usual this restaurant is outstanding as a business dinner venue. Bar is first rate; attentive and classy. Reservation was honored on time. Wine service was a highlight of the experience. If you have clients in town you cannot go wrong with Pappas--one less thing to worry about because you KNOW it will be excellent.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, Bob did an excellentAs always, Bob did an excellent job of taking care of our group.

We go about once a year and this time we went with some friends who had never been. Just as we sat down, to my amazement our waiter from the last time we were in remembered us as he passed by our table. We requested to move to his table and it was the best decision! He was fantastic! From going over the extensive wine list with the table and making suggestions to just having perfect pacing. Everything was right on. The food was excellent as always. Cooked to perfection, nothing sent back and every request filled no questions asked. I would HIGHLY recommend Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. I only wish they were closer to where we lived so we could go more often!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, bone in ribExcellent food, bone in rib eye was cooked perfectly. Service was outstanding from start to finish. We have always used Nick & Sam's in the past!! We will be using Pappas Brothers going forward.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak great wine!I was turned on to Pappas Steakhouse by a customer of mine in Houston over 10 years ago, we always asked them to open one in Dallas and they did some time ago, it is the best steakhouse overall in Dallas, and we have some great ones. If you haven't tired it, you owe it to yourself and that special loved one.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food & service - $$$$My first time here, didn't know what to expect. I don't think the "dry aged" beef is hype! I expected to take half of my 16 oz Prime Ribeye home with me - that is a big piece of meat in my book - but it just kept melting in my mouth and was gone before I knew it. Best steak I've ever had! Large portions are part of the theme but are meant to be shared. The slice of New York cheesecake was the largest I have ever seen - could seriously be shared by 4 people! It was decadently good. Service was spot on, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. Great for a very special occasion - check the available credit on your card first, especially if you plan on a bottle of wine.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPappas was great as always!Pappas was great as always!

Every dish I have tried has been fabulous and I highly recommend Pappas.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Anniversary Dinner!I took my wife here for dinner. I had a flower arrangement delivered to our table beforehand. Mark was our server. He was very engaging, and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was moderately dark, wood paneling, white linens, very classy. For our appetizer we had shrimp cocktail. This was very good. We then moved on to the most amazing wedge salad ever. We both had 12oz dry aged filet mignon with lobster mac n cheese and creamed spinach. The desert looked awesome, but we both ran out of room. This is a fabulous restaurant. By far our best experience. Would definitely go back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak and drink.Best filet I've ever eaten. Sides not so great, but you don't come here for the sides.
In addition to great wine list, they have a great spirit list, too. Very happy that they had Pappy Van Winkle.

Erica's service was off the charts!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPappas Bros.: Good, Not GreatWe've long wanted to visit Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, as Texas Monthly had once (2007?) rated it the best steakhouse in Texas. While the steaks (we had NY strip and ribeye) at Pappas Bros. were good, they were not the best we've had. The mesquite grilled steak at Perinin Ranch were better, as were New York strip & ribeye at Bohanans. In fact, Del Frisco's ribeye was at least equal. The beefsteak tomato/onion salad and the Caesar salad we had were excellent, but rather overpriced.
The atmosphere was a bit loud; fortunately, we were put in a smaller, somewhat quieter room as I had requested.
Service was excellent; not too overbearing (the waitstaff did not "hover"), but always readily available.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely the best steak,Absolutely the best steak, service, and overall experience. Outstanding!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFrindly and attentive staffFrindly and attentive staff without hovering.

It has become a yearly event for my colleagues and myself when we are in town.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very impressed! My wifeI was very impressed! My wife and I had a wonderful time. We will be back.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steakhouse in Dallas,The best steakhouse in Dallas, and most likely all of DFW. The food is top notch and the service is fantastic. We love our steak so when a really special occasion comes around we make a 45 minute trip over to Dallas just to eat here. The steak is so tender and flavorful, a friend of ours even calls it "steak butter". We have tried many other steakhouses in DFW and while many are good none can quite compare to Pappas!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMservice was impecable, beefservice was impecable, beef melts in your mouth, desserts are huge4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall was good. The desertOverall was good. The desert was fantastic. Two steaks were not cooked properly and even after they brought out new ones they were not right but flavor was good4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, our meal was excellent.As usual, our meal was excellent. I order Lobster Bisque whenever it is on a menu; I compare all to the one served at Pappas Bros., and none come close to the one served at Pappas. It is the "gold standard"! Our steaks were cooked perfectly to our order, medium rare plus. The sommelier who suggested wine to go with our meal was outstanding. John Walker was personable, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to chat with. His suggestion for an after-dinner port added to the enjoyment of our evening.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Lobster bisque steaksAwesome Lobster bisque steaks to die for and the desserts are worth the wait!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner but too expensiveGiven a gift certificate, I made a reservation, seated quickly after a courteous valet service. Waitress was prompt, cocktails arrived speedily, my husband was pleased to find a rare scotch that he'd been wanting to taste. Appetizers were a big disappointment, Foie Gras was laughable and the scallops were very salty, shrimp remoulade was good. Caesar Salad was good and Lobster Bisque was passable (a bit on the floury side). We all ordered steaks, my husbands bone in ribeye was the best, but they were all cooked perfectly. Mac and Cheese wasn't particularly special? The sommelier did find us a great Cab/Franc and we had a delicious chocolate marshmallow cake for dessert with a nice port and cappuccino. I've had better for the price4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur hostess was very courteousOur hostess was very courteous and our waiter was awesome!!! Thanks to Pappa Bros.in making the special request possible. Thanks!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite evening!Excellent service & outstanding food. Thanks for honoring my special request of a quiet table for a special occasion. When I emailed my reservation & request I wasn't sure anyone would really pay attention. The event was my husband's 59th birthday. He works out of state & hasn't been home since January. And our son flew in just for the evening.
Not only did we have a superb, quiet location in the wine room, our waiter, Darryl, greeted my husband with "happy birthday" & gave us his utmost attention. He made suggestions & made the evening even more pleasant than I expected.
As I walked through later to the ladies room, every staff member that I passed smiled at me. What a lovely, relaxed & pleasant evening we had. Thanks so much for ca4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. We had steaks, two sides, desert, coffee and espresso. All were superb. The waitress was helpful and professional. The lighting is a bit low (in the evening), and the price is a bit high, but the experience was excellent. I would definitely go back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest filet mignon in the UnitedBest filet mignon in the United States. Waiter service was excellent. I've dined there maybe a dozen times, and have never had less than an outstanding experience.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
