  • "Food was impressive. I didn't know what to expect as I've found the restaurants at Trinity Grove to be not very sophisticated, but Restro Gastro was surprisingly good, food flavors complex and well thought out. I'm a fan ..."

  • "The food was AMAZING!!!!! Our server was Kyle and he made the experience even better...had great recommendations and an awesome personality!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food was superb but while the restaurant was not crowded our service was slow. The quality of the food, however, is enough to return again."

  • "Sea bass was overcooked and soggy; ribs were good; crab cakes were 98% breading. Server seemed surprised and not thrilled with request for a taste of a by-the-glass wine she recommended. One couple ordered the Caesar salad to share; it was "artistically displayed", but definitely NOT a share-able portion size. I expect servers in restaurants that charge $30+ for an entree to share this info and recommend they order their own. It wasn't a horrible experience, but definitely not worth the drive or the money."

  • "i had trouble with the open table reservation: seems it didn't take saturday night but listed the day I made the reservations! We did get a table outside but they were very understaffed and it was busy. We waited for our dinner for too long."

  • "Our server, Debbie, was amazing. It was our (my girlfriend and I) first time trying any place in Trinity Groves. We were beyond pleased and look forward to our next night out in Trinity Groves at the Bistro. The food was fantastic as well as the service."

  • "We enjoyed an outstanding meal on the 4th of July. Very unique dishes in a charming setting just a few steps away from the new Dallas pedestrian bridge."

  • "The place is sort of less than, which I guess is okay, but the food prices are not in line with the limited interior. That would have been fine, but our server, while efficient and I guess professional, was basically dismissive and sarcastic, so the whole experience was odd. I got the feeling that this was the server's normal demeanor, not a bad night. But each of us at the table expressed that we did not feel at all welcome all evening. The food was good, but again, our server just made the whole thing weird."

  • "I was excited to try this place, but unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. First off, the restaurant was very loud. It's a small space so the people hanging out at the bar often overpowered the rest of the restaurant. I ordered the filet, medium, and when I received the filet it was rare. The waiter explained that the cooks didn't want to cook it any longer because the outside was getting charred and they didn't want it to burn. I may not be an expert chef, but isn't that what the oven is for? They took the meat back and cooked it a bit longer and it still was medium rare when returned. Moral of the story is that the food was alright, the drinks were good. I see this place as more of a happy hour hangout after work."

  • "Nice décor, attentive service but most importantly excellent food, I will definitely return and recommend."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The food was a little disappointing. The menu should have stated that the crab cakes were actually crab balls instead of cakes. Although, the sea bass was cooked perfectly, it was bland. However, there was a dribble of sauce around the plate to pep it up. The best part of the dining was our server Alyssa. She was adorable, perky, and helpful. The cheese/sausage plate was good. We enjoyed the refreshing specialty drink called Trinity 75, made of vodka, champagne, blackberries, and another ingredient that skips my mind. I think it would be a fun place to have drinks outside."

  • "Our food was solid, thought I have had better food at brunch and lunch than the dinner selections. Our service was slow despite the restaurant not being very crowded. As always, great ambiance and outdoor patio area."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We love Resto. The food is always good and the service is attentive. Our waiter was so nice and helpful. I chose a bottle of wine that I did not like, he was great to replace it with another one. No worries. I LOVE their Caesar salad. Love the outdoor patio too! We will go back!"

  • "Dined on a Saturday evening, peak time. Dining room was crowded and lots of servers but they seemed to be frantic to keep up with the large groups and balance them with the smaller ones. We had dined here before and the food was amazing. We ordered the same thing this time and the portions were noticeably smaller than before. The prices are mid to high but for what we got, inwould say over priced. The food tastes delicious though and maybe the small portions are to leave you wanting more??? Crab cakes app, and twisted chicken piccata are great! Also the corn pasta dish is good. Will go back."

  • "The shrimp and the crab cake appetizers were great! The chicken and pork tenderloin were tasty. The desserts were delicious and service outstanding!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We started off with the seared wagyu beef and the horseradish tofu cream was a perfect compliment for the beef (just enough hint of horseradish as to not overpower the flavor of the beef). Right after our meals arrived, the chef stopped by to say hello and we thought that was a very nice touch. For our main dishes we ordered the filet and the pork shank and the sauce on the filet saved this entree. I could have eaten just about anything with this sauce but the filet itself wasn't what we expected. We were hoping for so much more and it was cooked med rare but we expected a better quality meat. On the other hand, the pork shank was amazing and you could just pull the meat off the bone. We're definitely hooked but we'll pass on the filet!"

  • "The food is very good. We had sole and chicken piccata. Next time will try pork, it looked awesome."

  • "I was in town on business and deicded to go here for dinner with a friend. The food and service was excellent; however, there was a problem with flies. We could not enjoy our meal or finish our meal due to the number or flies swarming. After some time, I just gave in and let them have it. Something needs to be done about that. It ruins the ambiance and mood when you're constantly swatting your food. Sitting outstide, I expect it but we were inside the restaurant."

  • "Second visit to this restaurant and so far both experiences were great. Food was outstanding both times and we tried different things to make sure the experience was across the board good on the menu. Service could be better. Female owner was available during first visit and she was wonderfully charming and was able to "sell the menu". Servers need to become more invested in their restaurant, it's a gold mine. Learn the menu and about the exec chef and sell the experience to all your guests. Overall, this is one if my new favorite restaurants in Dallas!"

  • "Our group enjoyed the delicious food...the BLTE burger was a stand out as well as the flat iron steak and eggs with mushrooms. It was cooked perfectly and the flavors worked together. The Bloody Mary bar had everything we could ask for! Wish our waiter had been more attentive; he was friendly, but not overly so and he was not very helpful with recommendations from the menu. Speaking of the menu, wish there were more choices for brunch. The menu items were very limited and when one person in our party asked for something off the regular menu the request was denied and the waitstaff did not suggest anything else. "

  • "Pork tenderloin was fantastic, wife had the short ribs which she loved. Service was okay, kind of annoys me when a runner brings your food out and says, OK, who had what? "

  • "Food was awesome!!! Service, great. Was there for a birthday and they didn't give me a free dessert. Biggest hiccup? The flies were beyond annoying. They swarmed and repeatedly landed on the food. "

  • " Everything about our dining experience was fabulous. The weather was lovely. David, our server provided the BEST service possible. Each course was brought in a timely fashion so the food was still hot. The food was all delicious. We had the lobster corn dogs, pear salad, sea bass, and profiteroles with coffee for dessert. It's very difficult to get both your coffee hot and your dessert together. Restaurants always bring one before the other and the coffee is usually warm at best. David brought them together and the coffee was piping hot. We'll be back soon! Great dining experience. "

  • "I wanted to try this place because the menu items sounded delicious and because of the location. My brother was in town visiting and I wanted to explore something new because we are both foodies. We were both really disappointed with the food, the food didn't live up to the descriptions and the food was served lukewarm. The price point should be lowered because the price doesn't match the presentation. "

  • "This is a really good restaurant with a good wine list and overall good service. We were disappointed though, when recently we made a reservation requesting outdoor seating and that request was ignored. We were told that all outdoor tables were filled on a first come first served basis, and the reservation made no difference. It was a beautiful evening, and we had specifically chosen the restaurant because we had family in town and wanted outdoor seating. The inside tables were mostly empty so we probably wouldn't have needed the reservation since it was early (6:30). I guess since they are competing with other restaurants that have outdoor seating at Trinity Groves, they can do this, but next time we'll try a different restaurant there."
