The Second Floor is a gem. Wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Food is great and changes so there is a nice variety. The french dip sandwich is great. all the salads look artful. i really like the blue cheese hamburger with fries-their sweet potato fries are very popular. Great place for a quiet lunch when you want to get away from craziness of the mall. And it is easy to get in and out of the Westin-valet parking is quick and easy.

The lost my reservations. Luckily I still had the email confirmation on my phone/email and was able to provide a confirmation number. And unfortunately even with a confirmation number they still could not find my reservations. But after speaking to a manager they were able to accommodate my party of 6 within 20 minutes.

I was looking for an Easter Buffet and this was outstanding. I understand this was their first buffet. I hope they will continue it on all major holidays.

Excellent buffet with a generous number of dishes one normally wouldn't fund: delicious duck hash, pork belly Eggs Benedict, carved roasted Salmon- plus dozens of other enjoyable choices. New Chef is doing a great job. The unlimited Mimosa bar was well conceived and executed. Probably the best cooked-to-order omelet I've had. Appealing decorations and an Easter Bunny who was a hit with the kids. I felt the dessert station didn't match the rest of the buffet in terms of choices offered. Service was very friendly even if there were occasional hiccups. Look forward to returning for the Mother's Day Brunch.

TRY THE NEW MENU!
The new chef at The 2nd Floor has made some extraordinary enhancements to the dinner menu. The Foie Gras Mousse appetizer is one of the best I've ever eaten. Worth the trip just for that alone. If you like Bleu cheese- REALLY like it- then the Bleu Cheese hamburger is to die for. There is also a "regular" hamburger which is perfect. For dessert, we shared an order of beignets, and we were equally enthusiastic about this new addition; the three sauces that accompany this dessert are all excellent. For a unique cocktail, try the Spiked Arnold Palmer: sweet tea Vodka and homemade lemonade. Delish! Service was friendly and attentive. We'll be back!

This was a very elegant, quiet restaurant. The food and service was superb and the ambiance was excellent.
This would be a perfect restaurant for an intimate dinner.

a nice quiet place...mostly
I enjoyed the food. There is a front and rear dining room. I prefer the quieter places to the see and be seen crowd, so I opt for the back. I've been here before and it was nice and quiet, but this time a big group came in and it got a little loud. Not the restaurants fault, just something that happened. Staff is welcoming and service is great. Prices are reasonable too. I had a great experience.

Delightful place and service
We were thrilled to meet and converse with Seth, the curator of all alcoholic choices at 2nd Floor. He takes a great deal of pride in his work, and the beverage menu reflects this. Seth spoke my husband's language (Scotch), and educated us on a few facts, which delighted us both.
The smoked chicken was spectacular! Nick served our food with an authentic heart of hospitality.
Can't wait to go back.

Kelly was our server and she was great, her service would make me come back when they change their menu to the Fall menu. We went for restaurant week, I ordered off of the regular menu and had shrimp and grits. The shrimp were huge! They had a long wine list, but I don't drink so can't help you there. It is worth checking out. The restaurant is small and probably only seats a total of 60 people max. Ask for Kelly

For a hotel restaurant in
For a hotel restaurant in a Galleria, it is a true "find". Unlike most restaurants in shopping malls, it is small, intimate (request the back room away from the bar), and the menu is eclectic. There are some standard menu items, but also some very unique ones. Try the devil eggs with crispy smoky duck appetizer (unique) or the filet mignon Daniel (more standard). Both were excellent as was this week's special halibut entrée. The chef has a knack for putting together different ingredients that seem to complement each other without some overwhelming sauce or spice but it could also be luck of the draw. Ask the waiter if you are unsure. It's the only restaurant I know that offers wine at 1/2 price on a Saturday. Service was great.

A fun evening
The food was outstanding. The service was attentive without being stifling. We will definitely return.

How is this place not more packed?
We actually sampled 2nd Floor during restaurant week but we enjoyed it so much that I took my bf back for his bday the next week. The food is stellar and the cocktails are delicious. This is definitely up there on flavor combinations and has a very inventive menu.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed our dinner here! The service was very personable. Really interesting menu options. Loved the Salmon and Filet Daniel. The fries are to die for! The pork belly sliders were a great appetizer, not something I would normally order, glad we did. Really nice wine list. Good Moscow Mules. Will be back for a gormet burger at the bar and for Brunch. All day Sunday Brunch and the cooking classes really sound good! Really a well designed Bistro, very nice yet comfortable setting. Great location for many in North Dallas, Dallas, Coppell.

Most restaurants in hotels,
Most restaurants in hotels, especially hotels linked to shopping malls, tend to be large, noisy or franchises. 2nd Fl is small and intimate (ask for the back room away from the bar). It has a limited select menu which changes by season. I would go there again.

Had a great experience at 2nd floor. We were in a group of 7. at first we were a little surprised to see it was in the 2nd floor of a hotel. Since we are all road warriors we were apprehensive of a hotel restaurant. However, we quickly found out the restaurant is a self standing unit with its own chef. The food was excellent. Great presentation and most impotantly great taste. If you are a whiskey afficionado, whether it is scotch, irish, kentucky, blended or single malt, this is the place for you. They claim to have the most extensive whiskey line up in dallas. They also have flights which were lots of fun.

As you enter the Lobby of the Westin Galleria Hotel, you should immediately take the escalator to The Second Floor, a hidden culinary gem located on the hotel's- you guessed it- second floor. Suggest you try the Steak Daniel, named after the newly installed Executive Chef. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Valet parking at the hotel's front door is complimentary with a parking ticket validation at the restaurant. They serve Brunch as late as 4pm on weekends. Recommended!!!!

Great hidden gem
We enjoyed our experience at the 2nd Floor. The filet Daniel that I had was cooked to perfection, and the bernaise sauce that went with it was to die for. My fiance's ribeye was also cooked to his liking. The service was very good, and we never had to ask for our water cups to be refilled. Oh man, and you have to get the deviled eggs for an appetizer. Whatever they put in the filling is addicting! Overall I would recommend this restaurant.

New menu, great service
The Second Floor chefs have just introduced the fall seasonal menu. I had a wonderful grilled cheese sandwich with two exotic cheeses, a bowl of chicken soup and salad. A simple lunch made wonderful with its unique ingredients and flourishes. The grilled cheese sandwich had 2 melted cheeses on buttered Texas toast slices-both basic and luxurious. The chicken soup had fragrant mushrooms and diced chicken and had a smooth subtle flavor. The salad greens were dressed in a light vinaigrette. I really like the way the chefs at Second Floor add unique flourishes to comfort food and then also serve haute cuisine bistro food. Whenever we need a treat during the day, this is the place we go.

Great Thanksgiving Buffet
The Thanksgiving Buffet was wonderful. The prime rib and turkey were moist and flavorful. They featured all of the sides you would expect at a traditional Thanksgiving dinner plus some great unexpected items like Shrimp and Grits. I was very happy that I choose this very fine restaurant.

GREAT THANKSGIVING DAY BUFFET!
Many diners do not appreciate the skill and coordination of efforts required to prepare and serve a quality buffet. In many ways, it is much more difficult than serving a regular meal. The quality and variety of food was outstanding- some traditional dishes for a traditional holiday plus some great surprises. The dessert station was a highlight, and the animated turkey- I think they nicknamed him "Tom"- was a delight for young and old alike. REALLY appreciate the addition of an 18% gratuity to the checks. Again, a buffet requires a huge effort by the staff, and some diners do not understand this. Staff were great and very friendly. Free valet parking with validated ticket is another plus. WELL DONE!

Great food and scotch/bourbon bar!
I attended the Thanksgiving buffet. The selections were amazing in their creativity as they were all new takes on standard Thanksgiving fare. Of course there was the carved turkey and prime rib which were delicious. But the other options were creative, visually attractive, and clever in their new perspective on old favorites. I thoroughly enjoyed everything I ate! I look forward to their next holiday buffet and will make a point of attending it. Oh, and their scotch/bourbon selection at the bar is beyond compare. I have never seen any bar carry my favorite scotch and they had three different bottles from the same distillery. 5-stars on all accounts!
