This is an ideal place to go have a great Sunday brunch. Our service was great. We were a group of 4 and each of us cleared our plate. None of us ordered the same items. It will definitely be a place to return to for brunch. It also looks like a spectacular place to hang out at night inside or out. The outside looks fun. According to the staff, it's a very popular after work gathering place. We were there at 11am, but it looks like a great place to spend a long evening with friends.

Client lunch experience
I took a chance on this restaurant and took a client to lunch. It was a great choice. It was easily accessible and the food was very good. I will make this choice again, indeed.

Love the laid back atmosphere. No matter where you sit you feel how open air it is even if not outside. You can go casual or dressed up and no one cares. The food is amazing. Try the Strawberry French Toast. Everyone liked it. The Salmon Benedict was a hit along with the Create your own 3 egg omelet.

The patio is beautiful and the food is wonderful. A must try in Dallas!

Good food, spotty service
I've been a few times and food is consistently good. Dinner the other night was exceptional (Filet Mignon). However, it was disappointing to have poor service from the waitress. By looking around, this seemed to be the exception rather than the rule...another waitress checked on us a few times and was friendly and apologetic. But this was the second dinner for me that had poor wait service.

Saint Ann's was fabulous!
This was my husband and my first time and I decided to take him there for Father's Day. It was too warm to sit outside on the wonderful patio (although it certainly didn't stop many people!) so we sat at the bar. We had the BEST time! The service is impeccable and the ambiance was unmatched. What a great find for cooler days/nights on the patio....you feel as if you're somewhere other than downtown. Gary and Stephanie at the bar was most welcoming and made our visit even more special. Kudos to them both. We will difinitely return with more of our friends for a casual sit back and relax with an exciting vibe.

This is a great and fun restaurant. They sat us immediately and the food and service was great
Could not ask for a better evening, we will go back soon. We drove over from Fort Worth
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our food was fabulous and so was the atmosphere. We have been here before and we really like it!

Best Patio Dining in Dallas
The food and service were amazing. I haven't been to a more pleasing patio in Dallas. The landscape, view of downtown, and table settings are fabulous. Feels like you are sitting in a garden. The misters were a added bonus!
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place for brunch, lunch, or dinner! The food is really good and the patio outside is probably one of the best in the city! Large trees and many fans help to keep the patio cool, especially on those HOT Texas days! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a hip/fun/young place to grab a drink or some food!! A++

4 Celebrating Sisters - FAB night!
We had such a great evening @ St. Ann's. Our server Milena could not have been more accomodating or enjoyable. The food was outstandingly fresh and delicious. What a special way to celebrate Lily's birthday!

Great late dinner on a weekday nigh
We arrived at 9:45 and the kitchen was closing at 10pm. I normally try to avoid arriving so close to the time the kitchen closes because they will usually be in a hurry to leave and the food is rushed out. This was not the case at Saint Ann. We had the salmon tartare and the baby beat salad and for dinner we had perfectlry cooked salmon and trout. Every dish looked and tasted great so if you need to eat out late night on a weekend you connot go wrong with Saint Ann
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had heard about St Ann's and kept meaning to stop in. We finally did and we were not disappointed. The service is great, friendly staff, great atmosphere. We went there about to months ago and have been back several times since.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very pleasant surprise!
I had been to Saint Ann's a couple times before but only went to the bar. I liked the bar scene and decided to try the restaurant. To my surprise the food was outstanding. There were four of us and each of us ordered a different plate. Everything was just wonderful and cooked to perfection. I particularly liked the salmon and the scallop dishes. The polenta that accompanied was very nice. We did not try the deserts but plan to on our next return.
BTW, the drinks are fabulous. I had the Mexico City mule. The other cocktails are just as good.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent. The venue is also very interesting as it was an old Catholic school.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was as good as Pappa's
Food was as good as Pappa's Steak house at a fraction of the costs. Service was stellar and the location is true metro-Dallas! cant wait to find a reason to go back...our 2nd time and didn't disappoint either time. Go there!!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoy Saint Ann's
I really enjoy Saint Ann's it's a great gem of a restaurant . Food is always fresh and delicious. Great place to gather and enjoy life

Saint Ann's Restaurant and Bar
We went to Saint Ann's restaurant for my mother's birthday. We ordered hamburgers and a greek salad with chicken and everything was delicious. We had a nice waiter as well. I would go back when weather is a little cooler and sit out on their patio.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food choices, service outstanding, super drink selections, excellent entertainment! ...I'll be back!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time in a week
Been here twice before. Took 7 clients and enjoyed the museum. My daughter is Emily Barnes.
For this dinner my only complaint is that a group of very very loud 20- something girls seated next to us made it almost impossible to have a conversation.
Second time lately was Sat night: me, wife and another couple. Great food, we don't drink alcohol, and was a very pleasant evening. Once again enjoyed the Samurai upstairs

Great food and service. Monday
Great food and service. Monday happy hour was a bit noisy but the half price bottle of wine was a good deal. Very enjoyable.

Restaurant Week trial
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. None of us had been for dinner and it was so nice, the waitstaff was outstanding and the food was very good. Thank you all so much! We will be back!
8/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was good but...
The scallops my wife ordered were just too salty to enjoy. Great place, just got the wrong dish.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun on the Patio
Two females out for a nice evening of chatting, wine drinking and appetizer-tasting . . . .Saint Ann's did not disappoint us! The Charcuterie and Cheese Board was the perfect complement to our wine. We sat for 4 hours . . . . continually being checked on by Stephanie but not obtrusively. We'll definitely be back!!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous outdoor dining!
We had a wonderful outdoor dining experience! This restaurant was recommended by several friends so we decided to check it out during restaurant week. With a party of four, we tried everything from fish to the ribeye - all was excellent!
The outdoor dining area was wonderful, we had a great table with an umbrella and fans that provided a nice breeze. Our only complaint was that about halfway through our dinner, the folks at the next table all decided to start smoking. Too bad outdoor dining does benefit from the same non-smoking options as sitting inside.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed our dinner at Saint Ann but there were a couple of funny moments with the service including the appetizers arriving with Peach Cobbler rather than peach salad. We will definitely be back!
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Lovely surprise, charming setting
We can thank Dallas' efforts to repurpose historic buildings for Saint Ann's, a school built in 1927. We went this first time with new friends we're getting to know. To our delight, we never found ourselves shouting - the restaurant opened doors to the patio so noise escaped instead of bouncing back on inside diners. Saint Ann restored our love of duck, after disappointment at a restaurant earlier in the week. Every bite was melt-in-your-mouth tender & so tasty! Service got an "outstanding" because 1) we never wanted for anything; 2) we were never interrupted by our server during dinner, and 3) we didn't feel rushed out the door after. We'll go back in cooler weather and lounge on that patio with a refreshing Skinny Vida!

Our visit was during Restaurant
Our visit was during Restaurant Week, often know for tiny portions. We very much enjoyed our starters and entrees. The portions were large and very tasty. The desserts were so-so. We both wished we'd gotten the chocolate option instead. The service was excellent. We did notice a group of employees standing around laughing and talking behind a little half wall - part of the dining room so it's not clear why they were leaning on it and talking. No guests were seated in that area but it was still distracting. Overall an enjoyable evening - we would definitely go back.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Late lunch so pretty quiet. Perhaps the best roast chicken in Dallas! Service was spot on.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner before The Book of Mormon
This is my second time to eat at St Ann's, once during weekday lunch, and then in the early evening. Service was excellent, food was good, but it was soooo loud we had to lean in to hear each other. I plan to return on a Wed evening so I can set on the lovely patio and listen to their live music. Be sure and visit the upstairs Samurai museum. Very interesting!
I highly recommend this restaurant.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very beautiful restaurant
A very beautiful restaurant and patio. Live music was very good.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finding a good, downtown or uptown restaurant on Monday night is a challenge. Saint Ann's was a default location for a birthday celebration, and a gem. The location was easy to find, the food was outstanding, and our service was exceptional. The inside dining room was only lightly filled, so the noise level would have been quiet except for one group of very loud patrons. We will go again.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Roast Chicken!
The roast chicken here may be the best I've had at a restaurant. The al dente Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, gnocchi, and broth are all done to perfection. The only complaint would be with the about a dozen gnocchi. There should be 100!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good brunch on beautiful patio
We enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, Florentine and Southwest, and the setting surrounded by plants. The service was slow, and the waiter never got back with refills for the coffee. We will still go back, but I hope next time we find more attentive service.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a wonderful choice when the weather is nice...sit outside under the oaks. The duck was awesome.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
great outdoor experience
We had a great time at St. Ann's on Saturday night. We ate inside, then went out to the patio for drinks. Menu was very diverse, food was great. My wife had a steak that compared to the one I had at Bob's Chophouse the night before. Bacon-wrapped jalepeno poppers were awesome too. Great outdoor dining experience too, with DJ. Music was louder than "background music", but mild enough that we had no problem conversing at the table. Great overall experience!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place For Brunch
Was a really nice spot. We were promptly seated and greeted by our waiter. The wait was kind of long to get our food considering there were not that many people there at the time. Overall, good experience and would dine there again.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Girls night out.
Great outside patio for happy hour. Great bar and gathering area inside. Food and service average. Nice ambiance inside.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite patios
This is my go to place if I want to enjoy a good meal and a glass of wine on a great patio.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Obsessed with St Ann's
I'm not sure when I came to St Ann's for the first time, but it is always my go to place when my friends are looking for a new spot. The outside dining is absolutely beautiful - the menu stellar - and the service outstanding. Love St Ann's!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the best brunch
The breakfast flatbread w/the two fried eggs on top made my brunch a 10! Loved the patio too.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
What a wonderful brunch experience! The waiters for were so attentive. The mimosas were fantastic and absolutely loved the breakfast flatbread and the strawberry shortcake french toast. And all for such a reasonable price!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great patio dining
The patio at Saint Ann is gorgeous, and with heaters it is comfortable even in winter! We had the mussels, roasted chicken, and mac and cheese, and everything was perfect.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
We came to St. Ann's on the recommendation from a friend who is concierge at the Hyatt for my Neice's birthday. I was totally surprise...great location...great food and lovely surroundings. We had a ton of fun. Can't wait to go back.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hit or Miss
We went here for dinner before a concert. We were seated immediately which hasn't happened in the past (it was a Monday). Food was great but service is always slow and sometimes hard to find your wait staff. Don't go if you're in a hurry!
We had time to eat and sit back and enjoy so much better than other times we have been there and it's packed.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
this place was excellent. love this place had the steak sandwich.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice hot spot
Host was moderately welcoming and my waiter was not as attentive and responsive as he should have been. But the atmosphere is very nice and I enjoyed my first visit to this restaurant otherwise. I'd heard about it and its appealing patio. Though I chose to dine inside because it was rather breezy that day, since the restaurant has open walls to the patio the effect was pleasingly similar. Brunch was good. Eggs benedict were a bit runnier than I like but I'm sure the chef would have adjusted if I had asked. Plan to return soon.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
First visit to Saint Ann! Took 2 girlfriends from Austin and we all loved the ambiance, food and courtesy of staff. We will definately be back to experience that gorgeous patio in the spring. Very NICE!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect indoor/outdoor dining
Unique restaurant with tons of ambience. Great bar area, nice indoor dining, and an outside area that can't be duplicated.

First Time Was My Charm
The positive reviews I had checked out were spot on. My book club group was so happy I chose Saint Ann's. I would return in a heartbeat. The salmon that 2 of us chose was cooked perfectly. Loved the beet salad, too. If there was a down side, I was too full to order dessert!!! Our reservation was for 5:30 so the noise level was nonexistent. By the time we left, we had to shout across the table. We were on the patio so that might have been the reason, though that would not keep me from coming back.
