Always a winner!!
Love bringing new people! Always a winner as the menu is great for everyone. They always have short ribs on the menu but in all the times I have been there they are never available! Busy so make a reservation! Outside dining is delightful as you can hear!

7:30p res on a Monday night. (this was our 2nd visit here). We were seated right away. Super friendly, attentive, yet non intrusive service. Got the fried clams appetizer, which were crispy and light. Mains included a perfectly cooked Halibut Amondine (yes that's how it is spelled) with just the right amount of sauce and not swimming in butter, and the Redfish special. Again perfectly cooked, with an awesome side of green chile cheese grits. We cratered and added a side of crispy fries, too. The chef sent out a complimentary Caramel Pot De Creme desert. Decadent. To our surprise, the Chef came over to the table and we chatted up the place, his history, and told him how much we enjoyed the meal.
Energetic dining room. Calmer patio outside.

It was surprisingly crowded
It was surprisingly crowded (good sign) on a Tuesday night but they lead us directly to our table for 4. Immediate and attentive service. Ordered the meatballs as an appetizer and the waiter assured us there would be enough for 4 to share...and he was right. I appreciate tips like this. The meatballs were great. We all ordered a variety of dishes and I ordered the spareribs...and with my restaurant luck he came back and said they just ran out. Which means they are popular and good. He recommended the flat iron steak and he was very right, delicious. Another nice touch was when I asked about the size of the wedge salad and he said that they could easily serve a half portion which you rarely see. Overall a great meal.

Great Service and Delicious Food
The restaurant has a great specials board, I normally get something from that. The regular menu is great as well. Fabulous service every time, no matter the server.

Saturday Night at the Hood
Our server was very professional, helpful and friendly. My companion had the house salad with peach slices on it and was very pleased. I had the best wedge salad that I have ever had. My companion had the trout for an entree and was very pleased with it also. I had the flank steak with voodoo sauce and fries. The steak was flavorful and tender. The voodoo sauce complimented well. The skinny fries were good. We split the butterscotch pot de creme. I thought it was somewhat bitter but my companion enjoyed it. We will certainly go back again.

Excellent food and service!
Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals and will definitely go back to try some of the enticing entrees enjoyed by other diners.

Great food and ambiance
Had another great meal at NHS. Though the crowds made it hard for management to anticipate wait times. They were being polite eventhough some groups were not considerate of others waiting. The recent D Magazine article only added to the popularity.

I usually LOVE everything about this place but the service was out of control slow this time, I had to send my steak back to get it rare and we never got our french fries or water This is NOT typical of them they are usually GREAT

Too Loud for Me
Fabulous restaurant, terrific food, but I will never make the mistake of going on a Saturday night. I could not even hear my husband in the small booth. Our waiter Rocco was great and we were seated at our reservation time of 8:30 PM. All of the food was delicious and arrived hot and beautiful. Will go for an early dinner or a late snack at the bar. The crowd is too loud for me!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of 4 especially loved the mussels, the fried asparagus, and the brussel sprouts. Service was just right.
We've dined here many times and never been disappointed. It's great that they take reservations now.
In cooler weather, the patio is very enjoyable.

Just like all NHS restaurants, everything was spot on!
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had reservations at 7:pm but we didn't get seated until 7:35pm so we got off to a bumpy start to our Anniversary Dinner. The staff was attentive and came over to us a couple of times apologizing for the wait but it seems to me that they need a little more training in the fine art of managing this process. The food and meal service was outstanding. We will definitely give NHS another try.

I have had lunch and dinner at this restaurant. Food always wonderful, service very attentive and wine selection very good. Would recommend to a friend for nice lunch, date night or girl's night out.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was Kenny and he was spectacular. Definitely went above and beyond with service. Was very knowledgeable & helpful with menu items. Will be requesting him as our server the next time we visit this restaurant.
Also we had to wait a few extra minutes for a table (which was no big deal in our eyes) but the manager, Gerald, of the restaurant brought us a complimentary appetizer for the inconvenience. Was very unexpected and unnecessary but so delicious! It was the tempura fried asparagus, I would highly recommend!

I was not happy about the 45 minute wait for a table eventhough we had a reservation through OpenTable. They provided no compensation (like a drink, a starter, etc) while we waited.

This is our new favorite spot!!
This is our new favorite spot!! I'm in the service industry so I'm very picky. Be prepared to wait even with a reservation,but its worth it it!! No one wants to leave! The food is great and service even better!! !! Ask for Jose or JR they will take amazing care of you,

Great to showcase the neighborhood
This is our standard go-to anytime we have visitors to take out for an authentic taste of Dallas. We had to wait a few minutes to get in after our reservation (it was a Friday night), but once again NHS did not disappoint!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great place for a nice dinner in an unpretentious atmosphere! The food was excellently prepared and our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and very personable. We'll be back!
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a wonderful experience! Everything from the service to the food was top notch!
Love having NHS in our neighborhood for a fun dinner night out!

Finally, these guys get their act together and now offer reservations...I had given up on them until I found them on OT!
Remarkable food, great wine list and service....who could ask for anything more?! Daily specials are creative and only matched by the standards on the menu. Put this one you must try list!

Had we not been to big sibling
Had we not been to big sibling restaurant Neighborhood Services, we wouldn't have found ourselves comparing the two so often. NHS Bar & Grill wins on atmosphere, both indoors and on the very pleasant patio. It's less frenzied and drew an older crowd on the night of our visit. We forced ourselves to try some different things and thoroughly enjoyed both the scallops and the pasta special with butternut squash, chanterelles, and brown butter. Banana pudding/peanut butter mousse combination sounded better than it tasted. Server seemed a teeny bit patronizing -- are there still diners in Dallas who don't know what a chanterelle is? -- but was otherwise friendly and capable. We'll be back to both restaurants, but NS has our hearts.

We enjoyed our lunch at the large table in the back. It was a ladies lunch and celebration and we took our time and enjoyed bloody mary's and wine along with the Deviled Eggs to start with. The BBQ Shrimp BLT was delicious. Will come back soon!

Great food, great server!
Our group of 5 really enjoyed our lunch (everything from salads to crab cake to shrimp & grits), but especially enjoyed our server, Anna!

Keeps getting better...
One of the tops restaurants in Dallas. A spin off from parent restaurant that actually delivers in every way. Daily specials can go fast. Make an early reservation or call ahead to have them hold a special for you. Servers are VERY knowledgable about daily and regular menu. Better every time we go. Love it!

Very good food, prepared perfectly
Very good food, prepared perfectly as predicted per recent visits. The only thing I can't wrap my head around is charging $40 bucks for a 12 oz. steak. That is what makes this a once-in-a-while, special occasion place as opposed to a weekly spot for regular dining. But you can't beat the relaxed, dark atmosphere and incredible service. ....and no valet required. -I will definitely be back!
