    I guess I'll never get used to the meager portions now so prevalent at top flight restaurants but 3 scallops for an entree? They were great, but the meal looked more like an appetizer than an entree. On the other hand the room is lovely and frankly much easier to actually hear the people you are with than the typical steak house. Much more accommodative for talking business. I was impressed that my guest was able to find a very special and rare California Merlot that was his favorite. He had already drunk the last bottle out of the case he had purchased at the winery in Napa.

    I've been going through a list of recommended restaurants, Although this is very highly rated I would not put it in that category. They attempted to set us in an area next to the bar, I asked for something quieter they put us in another area that was still pretty loud, when I got up I saw that there was a private large room behind us it was simply empty but ready for service,. We thought the avocado soup tasted like guacamole, reminding frankly off one I just got at Costco in a multi pack although probably better in quality; and the fish was slightly overcooked although a very good recipe. At this level of prices I don't expect the fish to be overcooked

    My husband and I have been to Pyramid before for Christmas Brunch, but we have never been in for lunch. We were going to the Dallas Museum for day so thought we would have lunch first. This was a great choice. The restaurant was quiet and the service was excellent. My husband decided to order off the regular menu. The muffaletta sandwich he had was the best. My pork flat bread was good. The N.Y. Strip was the perfect size and well cooked. The french fires were crisp. The only disappointing thing that we had was the pecan tart for dessert. It was a little dry and tough. We will come again as we enjoyed ourselves and the service was fantastic.

    Service was impeccable. Came with a groupon, which they were aware of, and still treated like royalty. We had the pork belly, which was delectable! The chilled avocado soup was great; the server knew we were sharing the soup and so he brought us each our own bowl and individual garnish - a lovely long flat seeded cracker with edible flowers. I had the ostrich, medium rare, which was cooked perfectly and came with yucca purée, peach coulis, balsamic reduction, and heirloom baby rainbow carrots. Friend had the 12oz striploin w/asparagus & truffle fries. White asparagus was perfect, regular green was slightly undercooked. The steak... Was rare on one end and well on the other end. How did the kitchen manage that? It had been ordered "medium."

    I surprised my mom to a night on the town in the city and I knew The Pyramid was the perfect place to impress her. She was astounded by the setting of the restaurant. It was calm and serene, but then you add the food in the mix and VOILIA! I had the Colorado lamb chops; hands down best dish I've ever had. So juicy. So fresh. My mom had the scallops. With the expression on her face I knew I did good. She loved it, and maybe loved me a little more after the meal...I give it Five stars. Thank you!

    We caught the brunch during Restaurant Month (Week) and loved it. From the moment we stepped out of the car to a smiling, trusty valet I felt like royalty. The hostess was appreciative and gracious. Very sincere in wanting to please us, and our waiter was friendly and anticipated our needs. Our glasses and cups remained full and well, it was just an awesome dining experience. The breakfast buffet is not as extensive or varied or creative as other restaurants but again, the service won us over. For a party of two or a party of 22, we recommend the breakfast buffet at Pyramid. You'll have plenty of time to eat, talk, eat some more (and not feel rushed), and talk some more. It was special.

    I'm in the biz. It's not hard to please me but hard to impress me. If I'm spending 90 bucks for lunch, I don't want my steak smothered in blue cheese butter, my watermelon barely ripe, and my desserts pulled out of a freezer. Too many flavors to hide poor quality. Maybe we should have chosen a non restaurant weekend menu. I thought the purpose of participating was to bring in new people who haven't been in before. Not skimp on production and show everyone a cheaper version of what you do. Menu looked great online, but most fakes look great on paper.

    I had lunch at the Pyramid Room (I had wanted to go for years, but never made it downtown). The food was very good - my steak was perfectly cooked, the frites were also perfect (crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside), and the broccolini was also delicious. I was a little surprised when my iced tea came in a glass with a straw. I used the straw, as I assume they must know whether or not their glasses are clean, but it seemed very out of place to me in a fine restaurant.

    My visit this afternoon, on relatively short notice was handled with the same care as if they had a week's knowledge of my arrival. The staff and servers are what continue to make this a premier destination for many reasons. While longevity is a rare commodity in today's society, the gracious hospitality continues to amaze me. While not as striking and beautiful as the room was in its more formal days, but its hard to imagine having a better experience anywhere. Don't hesitate to ask for whatever you might long for from any era, as they are likely able to accommodate any reasonable request, after all this is the Fairmont. For the best experience make reservations and ask for Kim or any of the long time employees.

    It took a while to be seated and then took a while to be waited on at the Pyramid located In the Fairmont Hotel. When we finally were served food, one of the orders was completely wrong and the waiter said it would take less than three minutes to correct. Not true...it was fifteen, and by then everyone else had finished their meals This overshadowed the fact that the menu choices of crab cakes Benedict, California omelet, and Texas pecan waffles were very tasty. The waiter credited our drinks because of the error, which interestingly were two coffees and an orange juice.

    No matter where your spirits may be, a visit to the Pyramid is guaranteed to lift them. While the polish of the more formal venue is lost, the room still shines with the service of many longstanding employees. The always accommodating manager, Aida will ensure every wish is granted. For a special treat, I often opt for a special meal served in the former Brasserie, still prepared by the same expert Chef, and served with extra care by Kim. Its a special Texas dish not usually associated with the finer dining Pyramid, but graciously prepared and served to this day.

    Today, I called in advance, since the holiday weekends can be questionable but the experience was excellent. For many years the Pyramid has continued a tradition that was started when there were multiple outlets in the hotel. On special request almost anything can be delivered with great results.

    My wife and I dined here on one of our all too rare date nights. The experience was underwhelming. Everything started well. The salads were fresh and flavorful. However, there was a problem with the wine we ordered with the salad. The vintage of the bottle brought to our table (an off year) did not match the year on the menu (an outstanding year). When I questioned the discrepancy, the waiter acted like I didn't know what I was talking about. By the time he figured out the menu was outdated and they didn't have that vintage, we were long finished with the salad. The main course was forgettable too. I have literally forgotten what we had. We won't be back.

    I was not overly impressed with the Pyramid. The setting was nice and quiet so it was great for talking with our friends. The food was average, they were out of sea scallops which is what 2 out of 4 at our table had planned to order. The waiter was friendly the 2 times we saw him. The hostess took our food order and actually did most of the waiting on our table. They did do a good job of keeping our drinks full and coming around with bread. I think they were understaffed that evening even though the restaurant was not very crowded.

    Went here using a Travelzoo voucher. If I'd known how much $125 worth of food would purchase, I would've brought my friends along as well. We started off with leek soup - thick and creamy; quite delicious and pork belly, which melted in your mouth. The entrees were well-made as well (cobia and fillet). One of my disappointments was not having enough time to try their desserts. Another disappointment was not having scallops available. Last disappointment was the moscow mule I ordered. It was terrible and NOT served in a copper mug. The so-called 'mule' was sent back for a wine instead. Service was a little rough, our waiter seemed very antsy and couldn't stand still. Overall, go and try the food, but beware of the drink cocktails.

    Had lunch at the Pyramid in the Fairmont. The decor was just average for a high class hotel but spacious and comfortable. The lunch menu didn't have a huge selection but the food was excellent, as was the service. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try the dinner menu but next time we we'd finitely will. Prices were also excellent and there was a small selection of wines by the Sommelier for only $9 a glass, also excellent value.
