    The food is fantastic. My dinner companion was very happy. The only thing that was a drop was when they asked for blue cheese stuffed olives in their martini, the waiter said they could do it, then didn't. In all fairness, within 2 minutes of the oversight being brought to someone's atention, the blue cheese stuffed olives arrived. They have great beer selection, great drinks, wonderful chalk art drawings, the menu is loaded with AMAZING dishes. I would eat there once a week if I lived in Dallas.

    Good lunch spot overlooking Klyde Warren Park. Shrimp glass noodle salad was fresh, but underwhelming in overall flavor. Other specialty salads and sandwiches were good and fresh, including those with the pulled chicken. Service is abysmal with long wait times for food and spacing between courses. Location and ambience is fantastic. Corrected timing and service issues will imporve the experience.

    Everything from the signature cocktails to the attentive service makes this a great place for either a business lunch or an overdue meeting with an old friend. The "Queso Fondido" to share, followed by the Smoked Salmon Salad and the amazing Lamb Burger definitely delivered. The menu is very diverse and offers fresh and interesting selections for everyone. The Dark Chocolate Pot de Crème with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar doughnut holes was the perfect ending to an outstanding afternoon.

    A nice addition to the uptown/downtown scene. Walls of windows allow you to look directly at the Klyde Warren deck park, so the views are nice. Shrimp and citrus fruit salad is really excellent. All the dishes were good and reasonably sized. Pre-dining cocktail hour didn't leave room for desserts though there are some I would like to try. I would recommend reservations if dining at peak hours.

    Dined on 4/6/2013
    I did not love the menu. I wish there were other appetizers that were not so ham, smoked meat or curry oriented. Like more healthy appetizer choice or two would have been nice. Scallops were best entre. Ribeye had good flavor but was sort of tough. I really wanted to like this place because of the location. We sat outside which was great. However, the service was terrible. The waiter was not a happy fellow. Zero personality. Got our drink orders wrong. And, those that had steak, all had them cooked to the wrong temperature. Manager, very nicely apologized and comped us desert. Unfortunately, the deserts were not great either. 30 minutes after coffee and desert, the waiter had not come to see if we were ready for a check or refill...

    Incorporate more casual food items on dinner menu and at least one chicken dish. I could not find anything on the menu that I liked. Very slow service. We came in for dinner but ended up just having one drink. There were many wait people standing around yet it took a while to get our drink and quite a long time to pay our bill. I was very disappointed in the food selection and the service.

    Just open three weeks and only one week for lunch - great job! Lunch menu was lovely and delicious. Seems a bit pricey for the size of the entrees - the striped bass and the chicken breast - both dishes were creative, delicious and LIGHT. I ordered the avocado and beet salad after I finished my entree because I was still hungry....hmmmm. The french press coffee was a nice dessert. Looking forward to another visit.

    Six of us went for Lunch on Easter and sat on the patio. The drinks were fantastic and the service was very good. Since we had a late lunch, I can't comment too much on the scene, but the overall ambiance and decor was terrific. I could imagine this as a great place for after work cocktails or a weekend lunch/dinner while visiting the museums and performance venues in the area.

    the cauliflower soup was tasteless - we sent it back, as did other diners we encountered. a. couple friends got the coque au vin and were very disappointed. my husband had the steak frites and the fries were limp. I had the shrimp citrus arugula salad which was delightful. unfortunately, I was the only one who enjoyed my meal out of our party of five. not much view of the park since its across from active building site. there are a few good cocktails on the menu. service was pleasant and overall the restaurant has a very nice vibe. if the menu were better executed, could be a favorite spot since the parking is such a breeze.

    Kudos to Chefs Dennis Kelley and Melody Bishop! From the warm welcome to the attentive and comfortable service provided by Lesley, our experience at the Lark was fantastic. The Curry Puffs were a simple and savory start with the "Gin Bright" and "Horned Lark" handcrafted cocktails. Both the escarole, pears, walnuts, and St. Agur as well as the shrimp and arugula with avocado and citrus were light, fresh and wonderful. The Smoked Duck with quinoa and the Wild Mushroom Pappardelle were outstanding combined with confident wine pairing recommendations from our server. The Toffee Pudding was the perfect ending to a great meal. Will return and definitely recommend!

(And very much worth the trip for those not in proximity.) Innovative, scrumptious, nicely-portioned dishes from beginning to end. Excellent, knowledgeable, and engaging wait staff. A unique environment which perfectly compliments the area, particularly the Klyde Warren Park.
