Restaurant506 at The Sanford House
Try something newFood was exceptional. Service was very good and the server was attentive. We travel to Arlington often and wanted something quiet and personal. This was a great choice.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAn "A" list restaurant.A rare find in Arlington. Wonderful food. Happy help that extends to their customers. This is the type of restaurant that belongs on everybody's " A " list of restaurants to go to.
Their wine list is a little thin.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDINING DELIGHT......Restaruant506 has evolved into a dining delight! The leadership works hard to please. The attention and service are proof thereof. My wife and I dined for a special occasion: my graduation from the local university! Without know the occasion, our water was both friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely outstanding. The Lobster Risotto is divine. The Bread pudding will bring me back again soon!!! A wonderful experience all around.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe stayed there over the weekendWe stayed there over the weekend and really loved the place. The room was beautiful, the food was outstanding and the staff were superb!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went Saturday night toWe went Saturday night to celebrate Mother's Day and were more than pleased with the food and the evening. Wait staff was attentive but not overly so. We were not rushed nor did we have to wait to long before each course. We started with the pork medallion and ahi tuna appetizer, both were excellent. I had the special of the evening which was a petite New York strip cooked to perfection with poached lobster in a champagne sauce, very very good. My wife had the tea smoked salmon which also was very good. We topped off the evening with their bread pudding and, coming from New Orleans, it was outstanding. Croissants in lieu of french bread and a lighter sauce with strawberries and blueberries. Unusual and very, very good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect EveningThis hidden gem is exceptional. The ambiance made for a great dining experience. Food and service was excellent!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA diamond in the roughUpon locating the Ashford House when searching Arlington restaurants I would have never suspected such an excellent establishment would be located near old town Arlington. This Bed and Breakfast is amazing. We had a crusted halibut with asparagus and potatoes and it was heavenly. The ambience was perfect with an old Victorian feel to the surroundings and some Frank Sinatra playing in the background. We will now come here. On our anniversaries as restaurant 506 and the adjoining Ashford House is truly a find.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGem for lunchFirst time @ 506 w/ some girlfriends for lunch. Great experience & food was delicious. Great atmosphere & I plan to go back for dinner w/ my husband.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Brownie points!!Tucked away in an older neighborhood. Great garden area for weddings (one was happening during our dinner!) Duck confit, rack of lamb, but a MUST is the Chocolate Destruction dessert!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentBest food I've ever had; seriously thought I'd shed a tear. Best espresso I've ever had, and I've had many. Prices are very reasonable given the quality. Thurs is a good day to go if you want the place to yourself.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSanFord House Spectacular Brunch!I drive by here everyday to go home and the place is so lovely, when I saw that they were having an Easter Brunch, I had to try it. The salmon, steak and rack of lamb were all rated some degree of "wonderful!" by our party and the asparagus that accompanied our dishes was the best that I've had in a restaurant in several years. The desserts, which included a cappacino infused creme brulee and and tiramasu with raspberry filling were fantastic.
Sanford House itself resides in a beautifully converted Victorian house. Looking out on the blooming azaleas and the lovely old porch on this brilliant spring day was made for a perfect Easter brunch!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter Brunch was outstanding,The Easter Brunch was outstanding, as was the service. It was a great place to dine on Easter. We also dined here on New Year's Eve and loved it. I highly recommend this restaurant. We will return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in a room away forWe were in a room away for the main house and the poor waiter had to run back & forth to get food. He was very good but that situation isn't ideal. Food was very good and the atmosphere is very nice.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a well kept secret -What a well kept secret - don't really want everyone to find out about it!!!!!!!!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Lovely restaurant with old fashioned charm. My companions and I had lunch there recently. I had delicious crab cakes and had a taste of their beef tenderloin. All entrees were amazing.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday Night's Alright for Eatin'There are probably no places in the DFW area that do what 506 at the Sanford House does routinely. Amuse Bouche? Check - A bite of Salmon with a great sauce (varies from night to night); Appetizer? Check - Duck, marinated with another great sauce (this could easily be an entree!) Sorbet? Check - Where else do you routinely get a sorbet to cleanse your palate before the entree? Entree? Check - Short rib - Great!; Sea bass - Great! Dessert? Check - Chocolate Destruction - WOW! Dinner accompanied by a great bottle of wine..... Excellent five course meal - Very reasonable. This was definitely worth the drive from Dallas! Very few places in Dallas can match this, without spending at least twice as much. Watch out French Room!!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNot as good a value as previously,Not as good a value as previously, but still enjoyable3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellant and well presentedExcellant and well presented dining.

A great spot for a lunch date!2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur luncheon was delightful.Our luncheon was delightful. The food was prepared and presented very well. It is interesting to note that while the restaurant was running at near capacity, neither the waitstaff nor the kitchen missed a beat in service and food quality. The following for the restaurant is rapidly growing. Make reservations soon for a romantic dinner with restaurant 506. You will not be disappointed.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my 5th dining visitThis is my 5th dining visit at Sanford. Always impecable, the food

Poor weather and good timing gave us the whole restaurant to ourselves. Food was awesome, as usual. I can't say enough about how nice it was. Oddly, even though we only live less than 2 miles from The Sanford House we don't go there enough. We will put them on the top of our list where they belong. Thanks!1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly exceptional! We hadTruly exceptional! We had a wonderful time celebrating my boyfriend's 33 birthday.
