A word from Saint Ann Restaurant and Bar
Designed by LA-based Shimoda Design Group and Harwood Design Team, Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar is the newest restaurant concept and has the largest garden patio in Dallas. Located next to Saint Ann Court, the historic St. Ann’s School was preserved and converted by Harwood International into a restaurant and bar surrounded by gardens and art. It is open for lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch, and drinks.

The original structure was built in 1927 as Dallas' first school for Hispanic children. In addition to the original structure, Harwood International has preserved the mural of "Our Lady of Guadalupe" and serves as the focal point in the gardens. The first level of the two-story red brick building is Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar and the second level will house The Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection.



Please note that reservations cannot be made for the patio. Patio is first come, first serve.

    We dine at Saint Anne's several times a month during Basketball Season and it has always been great. This last time the beet salad was bland, the pork tenderloin was dry and the haricot verte limp and over cooked. My husbands pork chop was not much better. We were very disappointed especially since it was a first vist for our friends.

  • 2014 Restaurant Week
    LittlejohnBday
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    We took our friends to St. Anne's for 2014 Restaurant Week, who are also both Sommeliers and European-trained chefs. They were most impressed with the wine list and the menu selections for restaurant week. They chose duck (perfectly cooked) and my husband and I chose sea bass (very good too) - everything (including the wait staff - very attentive) was perfect and enjoyed by all, and paired with a couple of specially selected wines. We arrived in a light rain storm and were greeted at valet with umbrellas - what more could we ask for. It was a most enjoyable evening spent with great food, wine and friends. Thank you, St. Anne's!

    Fun place with good food, great service and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Our server was a blast and the manager took the time to speak with us several times and bought us a round of shots to get the party started. Went for restaurant week but just ended up selecting from the regular menu as it was less food and cheaper (we didn't each need three courses). We had a later reservation at 9:15 and the place really got hopping when we were leaving around 11:30 when we were leaving. The outdoor area is the same size (or larger) than the actual restaurant and would be a great place to dine, weather permitting.

The scenery was beautiful. Lots of delicious choices on the menu. We will definitely be back to try some other things and hand on the patio!! We chose from the restaurant week menu and everything was just amazing!! Big, plentiful portions!

    We came here for restaurant week and the food was amazing! We had the blue cheese slaw shrimp and the salmon tartar for appetizers, the duck and steak for entrees, and the caramel flan and chocolate ganache cake for dessert. We would order any of those items again! The hostess seated us immediately and the server was attentive without being pushy. The restaurant is an old private school so it has a great ambiance, and upstairs there was a samurai sword exhibit, although I'm not sure that is year-round. Highly recommend and definitely plan to go back!

    The food was outstanding and the service was great. Our serer was around when we needed him but we never felt rushed to leave or bothered while we were eating and chatting. I had the crab cake benedict and it was awesome. I am a eggs benedict fanatic so having so many options to choose from was fun. Can't wait to go back and try another version!

    This was our first visit. We booked a reservation for lunch and arrived early since...for a change...there was little traffic to contend with on the Dallas freeways. We were the first customers of the day and seated promptly and given menus...the ignored. There 2 wait staff and 3 busboys. No one seemed to notice an empty glass or dish...in fact, we had to ask to have used items removed. We were handed back ou used silverware after the appetizer course was complete. The food was excellent and the setting is perfect. Someone needs to train the wait staff to put away their tech toys and pay attention to customers.

    I have wanted to go to Saint Anne's for quite awhile and I decided to try it with some out of town guests. Best decision!! One of the best patio dining venues in Dallas by far and the inside us gorgeous too. Its perfect for a date night, a girls' night out, and definitely a ace to bring out of town guests! The food was fantastic, reasonably priced, and good wine selection. If you haven't been, put it on your must do list!!

    This was my second visit to Saint Ann's. The first, for lunch, was lovely. The second, this visit, with two friends, was not so good. If visiting with your guests is important to you, do not go to this restaurant in the evening. You will not be able to carry on a conversation. The food and service was very, very good. The salmon perfectly cooked and the ceviche was delicious. We just could not hear each other without putting our heads together. Will stick to lunch from now on.

    Great restaurant for dinner. We ate there on a Thursday night. The bar was packed and the outdoor patio looked great. We were seated inside and the ambiance was great. We started with the bacon wrapped chicken popper. It was excellent, a must have. He had the short rib sandwich, which he enjoyed. The truffle Mac and Cheese that came with it seemed to have a little too much truffle oil, but it was still good. I had the pesto flatbread. It was very good.

    Every time we have been to Saint Ann's, the food and service are wonderful! We have sat both inside and on the patio and the ambience is fantastic. It is very upscale and relaxing. We usually have dinner and are leaving about the time later in the evening when the music changes, gets louder, and it shifts to more of a bar scene. It also looks like fun though.

    We have gone here many times over the years and had thought it was decent. Last Saturday we ate on their patio and had one of the worst restaurant experiences. We got seated fairly quickly, but it goes down hill quickly from there. Our waitress was completely apathetic, in two hours we only got one round of drinks and never got our water glasses filled. We ordered the Mussels, which were incredibly small and bland. For entrees we ordered Scallops (chewy and bland), Red Snapper served on bed of lettuce (ok), Salmon (decent, but overcooked), and tried to order their signature Rib Eye, but they do not allow any substitutions (wanted the Fillet setup as the other was things we were allergic too). We never saw our waitress after the food came.

    Nice restaurant, but when the hostess tells you have you to be out by a certain time because there is another reservation after you, sets for the wrong tone. Never have we been told at a restaurant we were on a time limit! Probably won't be back because of this. Nice outdoor seating and bar. Wish had a bigger wine selection.

    We enjoyed our first visit to Saint Ann. The beet salad and heirloom tomato salad were fresh and well-prepared. I had the filet, and others at the table had fish. All done perfectly. Dessert was yummy - lemon tart and lemon sorbet. Very energetic - pretty loud - but made the experience fun and lively, rather than annoying. The outdoor space is lovely, although it was too warm for us that night, so we dined indoors.

    Food was quite good, but the waiter was incompetent. I ordered pork tenderloin, and the waiter asked if I would like it medium rare, which should have been a clue that he didn't understand what I was ordering. Of course I don't want medium rare pork. When the meal arrived, it seemed very much like beef rather than pork, but whatever, it was good and I didn't want to complain since I was out for my friend's birthday and didn't want to send the food back. When the bill arrived, the beef was apparently TWICE as expensive as the pork. A $40 mistake! For the amount of money I threw down at this restaurant, I'd expect a waiter who has clean ears.

    Took my wife for our 5 year anniversary. Sat on the patio. Great ambience. Ordered filet and rib-eye. Steaks came out over done, but my wife didn't complain about hers because she hadn't eaten. My steak was redone and the second time it came out, it was overdone again. By this time, my wife had finished her meal and we were in no mood to wait for another steak. We left with with $150 tab, which the majority were drinks we had while waiting on food.
