Five-Stars & Fabulous
If I had unlimited space to laud our dining experience at SER, I'd run out of superlatives. Everything was excellent--food, wine, service--and the view of Dallas is gorgeous. I only regret I don't live in Dallas or my husband and I would dine there regularly.

Finally, a steak house that is more than just a grilled steak and the standard sides...an interesting assortment of starters and entrees...loved the hen of the woods and Iberico ham as well as the local artisan cheeses...a great view of dallas...a place for either a special occasion or just a wonderful meal...a favorite

Good but not great
We went on a Monday so that may explain it not being as good as it could, but it was still worth the money. The mac n cheese is great .. hard to mess that up though honestly. The Chicken was not out of the park but still good. The sauces were all made really well though. My date got pork that was also not fantastic but still ok ... not really worth the price of it on that one though. Its probably best to get the steaks which looked great but neither of us were in the mood for that. The cocktail she ordered was made very well.
Check it out though ... its a good spot ... great views of the city on the 27th floor with 360 windows view.

2nd visit. !!!
Saturday night and only a handful of tables seated. ?! why?! This place beats all of the top upscale steakhouses when you take in all factors or atmosphere, service, flavor. GREAT view. Romantic lighting. quiet with the tinkling of the piano w/ a singers melodic voice in the background. Nice looking patrons, dressed for dinner. This time for me, scallops, foie gras, waygu carpaccio, spinach salad, and the best martini ever. Attentive, non intrusive waiter. I will return. Highly recommended. especially for a date.

From the minute you step off the elevator and are greeted by the hostess, the experience simply stunning to the senses... Great atmosphere, fantastic bar, stellar service, AWESOME views of the city, but most importantly PHENOMENOL food!
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good but...
Be sure to ask them for parking validation otherwise you'll be paying $20-30 for self or valet parking, as they aren't forthcoming with that. Overall it was a good experience.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food. Great service. We really enjoyed our night. It was our anniversary and they even brought out a chocolate cake with candles one it. Very sweet. The view was wonderful and the wine was really good.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a view!!
This relatively new restaurant on the top of the Dallas Hilton Anatole is great. The food and service was outstanding. The extensive wine list, with the high tech tablet presentation, offers something for every taste. And the view in all directions is beautiful.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, not a fan of the price
I don't mind paying for good food & service but WOW.....They are very proud of their dishes. I wish the wine list had a few more familiar names too. Glad we went, as dinner was great but not sure I'll be back anytime soon.

It was a very good steak, on the pricey side but all was good. Can only go on a special occasion.

The food, service and view were all great. Would highly recommend. Certain items are kind of pricey but also have alternitives on the menu that are very affordable. Great for a special occasion
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our group went for a special occassion and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The service was great, friendly and efficient. The food was great, especially the salmon. This is a great spot for a romantic dinner, with a great view of the Dallas skyline. The pianist playing was amazing, and truly made the atmosphere more enjoyable.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view from the restaurant is fantastic and romantic; although I was with a small group. The service was top notch and waiter was on his game and very engaging. The crabcake appetizer was really good. The meats on the entree left a little to be desired. The steak was a little tough and the pork chop as well. One person in our party had the scallops and she ate the whole thing!!! The side dishes were EXCELLENT.......macaroni and cheese, creamed corn, the smoky mushrooms amd potatoes. .
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great view while dining!
We heard about this restaurant on the radio so decided to try it. We were so glad we did! The staff immediately seated us upon arrival and the server was very attentive. The menu offered a large variety and the drinks from the bar were outstanding. The view of Dallas was great as we watched the sun set. Would highly recommend for special occasions since this is a little pricey but well worth it!

Evening out with wife . . .
Great view and excellent service made for a nice evening. While the appetizers and dessert were adequate, the entrees were exceptional. Hostess was excellent! We happened to arrive quite some time before our actual reservation time and she sat us at my requested table . . . that is a little lucky but top shelf and definitely appreciated! We will be back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, and steak in particular, was wonderful as usual. Missing was an enthusiasm. The whole restaurant was a little depressed. I believe that since Mark LaRocca hired and trained most of this staff his presence is seriously missed. His attention to detail and quest for perfection cannot be replaced. Been dining in Dallas >40 years & know the relationship between management & staff is that unseen glue that makes the difference between OK and Excellent. I'm afraid SER is headed for OK. Makes no sense to me.
Someone in Anatole upper management has obviously reached their level of incompetence. Best of luck. I for one will miss it.

It was a superb dining experience. The food was complex and yet a delight to the tongue. Service was impeccable and each special request was done to perfection.

Stunning view, scrumptious food
The view was amazing and perfect at sunset- the windows face east so the sun isn't glaring in your eyes but you can still see the distinctive downtown skyline, reunion ball tower and Margaret Hunt Hill bridge. After the sun sets, the lights twinkle and it is extremely romantic.
Food was delicious. We went for Restaurant Week so it was a limited menu but we still enjoyed very much! We had wedge salad, filets, carrots, mac-n-cheese and chocolate truffle cake. Service was spot on. Highly recommend for a special occasion!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would actually rate this as between 3 & 4 stars if that were an option. Very nice restaurant. Great views, but much nicer at night. My crabcakes were very good, my husband's lobster bisque was good but not nearly the best he's ever had (could have used a little "bite"). My scallops were nicely cooked, but the scallops, the spinach and the side of mashed potatoes all had very similar sauces and textures so I would recommend maybe crunchy al dente vegs instead of the spinach for a texture and taste contrast. The mashed potatoes were just OK. My husband's New York strip was great---nicely seasoned, great flavor, perfectly cooked. The beignets we got for dessert were just OK. Service nice but not really "polished".
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
For that special occasion!
Excellent menu/food, off the charts wine list, superior service and breathtaking views make this spot a perfect choice for that special occasion!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Didn't live up to high expectations
Perhaps the Restaurant Week menu didn't do the full experience justice, but the food was quite good....but not great. Presentation, service and view over downtown Dallas was all very lovely, however.

A memorable dining experience
My husband and I took a friend to Ser for her birthday. The view of Dallas is magnificent. The service was so good, you didn't notice it. We never needed anything that we didn't have and yet were not interrupted or bothered with interruptions from the server. It was perfect. We all ordered different appetizers, salads and entrees so we could taste more things. All of the food was exceptional. I usually have to special order because I don't like butter or cream on my food. However, all of the food was delicious without any special preparation. My favorites were the Quail appetizer and the Sea Bass entrée. We would definitely return for a special occasion.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food...ok service
Outstanding ambiance and view. Nice menu with delicious food. Our only complaint involved communication with the staff. We asked for the wedge salad with no blue cheese crumbles and ranch on the side. What they gave us was a wedge with tomato dressing !?! They gladly took it back but then delivered a wedge with blue chess crumbles and dressing on the side. We just gave up and didn't eat it.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
That was my 1st time at Ser an I must say I enjoyed every minute
There! Great atmospher an the food was awsome.will come back.very quite.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service.
Sèr was a great dining experience. The food was amazing and the service was just as good. I had the New York strip and it was cooked to perfection and tasted great. Great drinks and sides also. I would definitely recommend this place.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
From food to service to atmosphere, everything was just right. The tempura lobster appetizer was delightful - light and flavorful, the ribeye was excellent (and plenty to share), the grilled asparagus and mac n cheese was prepared perfectly and presentation was simple and clean. I highly recommend SER for any special occasion or just a nice night out with a fantastic view of downtown Dallas.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely restaurant, tremendous wine list (presented on an iPad), eclectic menu, slow service. We didn't receive any food until after 40 minutes and it was bread. Our appetizers came after we had been seated for an hour.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
everything was wonderful, from the flowers I ordered being on our table to the excellent food we enjoyed. the manager stopped by and chatted, the wait staff was fantastic and the scallops and duck we had was terrific.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We both had filets for dinner and they were very good. Weakest part of meal was dessert. Chocolate cake tasted like something from Sara Lee and beignets were not great. Suggest enjoying other items on menu and skip dessert
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second visit, the food, drinks, music and view are
amazing. Ser is our favorite place in Dallas!

Steaks to die for
My friend and I were staying at the Anatole and going to the Eagles concert in Dallas, so we chose to eat at SER to save some time and trouble of going outside of the hotel to eat. We were rewarded with wonderful, tender and melt-in-your-mouth steaks and unique sides and wonderful bread. My friend's red wine was superb. Our server was attentive and informative and funny and personal. She explained the entrees, the sides and the wine very well and made sure everything was perfect for us throughout the meal. I would definitely eat there again for a special occasion, and the ambience and scenic view of downtown Dallas from the 27th floor was just wonderful and made the night so special.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
evening in the rain
Despite the rain outside, the view from the tables at the window was impressive and added to the romantic feel in general. Noise was a bit more than usual due to bookings of large table groups of conference goers but not to the point that a conversation was not possible. Service was efficient and non-intrusive. I ordered a filet, medium rare and it was perfectly seared just the right amount of pepper and salt to bring out the excellent flavor of the meat. The lobster bisque was also excellent.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was our first dinner as husband and wife and we are glad that we picked SER for it. The service was amazing and the food was incredible.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was perfect, the view incredible overall a wonderful experience.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never a disappointment
I have been to SER on multiple occasions and every time they deliver over and above what I want or expect. Not only is the service attentive and impeccable, the food is always to die for. I have been with friends, for an anniversary, and with family, and every occasion has been memorable thanks to the outstanding service and cuisine provided by the capable people running and working at SER.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
went with my 2.5 yr old they are not prepared for children, so do not bring them. we went for the view which is wonderful. the food was either tasteless or barely flavorful. the wine list is nice & the wine recommended was delicious. all of the staff were wonderful. if you are a couple or with much older children this place is a nice alternative to the wolfgang puck restaurant & you should go.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not your average hotel restaurant!
This is our second visit to SER, and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the food very good (especially the seafood appetizer - fresh and delicious), and the view at night is unparalleled. We went with one other couple who were dining there for the first time, and they thought it was fabulous, also. Well done!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent steak! Never had a 16 oz before that left me wanting more. Love the vibe not hostile like many other restaurants.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM

The views were amazing and the service was excellent. There was a woman playing a piano and singing which made the experience even better. The food was some of the best around and I definitely will be going back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and view
Shrimp cocktail was incredible, as well as the ribeye, mac & cheese, corn and fries. Wish I had saved more room to enjoy my dessert. We ordered the chocolate lava cake which was delicious but WAY too much after everything else we had!!!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everyone should try it
Great food, great service, amazing view = great time.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
SER Steak exceeded our expectations. The romantic setting and ambiance will have us returning to make more and more memories.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and atmosphere were great, but the service was amazing. It is a bit expensive, so i would recommend to go here for special occasions.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Steaks with a View
Outstanding view of downtown Dallas from 27th floor of Anatole. Typical steakhouse menu but with a few twists including unique appetizers. One of the best stripsteaks I ever had and as good or better than most steak chains. Nice atmosphere and ambiance. Wine list on an IPAD - many good choices very expensive so opted to wine by the glass (several decent offerings). Overall a very good experience.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a top-notch place with great wine list, perfectly prepared food and impeccable service

The food was delicious, the service wonderful. I brought a group of clients for a business dinner. Gorgeous view!

50th birthday celebration
I was blessed to celebrate my 50th with my dearest friends while at a conference here in Dallas.
Pros: amazing atmosphere, superior service (they made me feel like queen for a day!), incredible views of Dallas
Cons: a bit noisy, food was good but VERY pricey (but I guess what you would expect for a sky view restaurant in an exclusive hotel)
Overall, it was a fantastic experience!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic views! Good food!
Recommend this restaurant highly. Good food, great service and amazing views of downtown.
