25th Wedding Anniversary DinnerWe chose Stephan Pyles as our restaurant of choice as romantic and high-quality place to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The service, food, and atmosphere were all perfect and we enjoyed our experience immensely. Stephan Pyles is definitely the place to visit in Dallas for a superb dining experience for any occasion, but especially for special events.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLuminant DinnerBusiness dinner. Great food, great service. Very convenient to downtown business. Definitely will visit here again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day treasureWhat a wonderful Mother's day brunch we had. 2 adults and one kid - prix fixe menu at $20 for the kiddo eating from exactly the same menu. So we shared 3 x 3 different courses for $120. Amazing value. Fantastic trout, great pulled pork, delicious snapper. Desserts were great too (with the possible exception of the basil ice cream - that would have well with a tomato based appetizer, but not dessert). And Stephen Pyles was there on Mothers Day, spending a few minutes at each table with all the patrons. Unexpected that such a great chef who has many restaurants still spends time in his kitchen and talks to customers! We felt very welcome.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!The food is outstanding! Great flavors. He has created amazing southwest dishes with a whole new twist. I would highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMClient Lunch at Stephan PylesHaving to meet a client for lunch while in Dallas from Australia for a conference, a former Dallas girl recommended Stephan Pyles. She said: "Stephen Pyles is probably the most famous Dallas chef. His style as haute Southwestern fusion. I love his restaurant and it’s definitely a Dallas Institution". Not a bad summary - elegant and understated exterior, stylish interior, pleasant and efficient service and excellent food. Sadly, time constraints meant only a main course and glass of wine - Taco salad for me and a burrito for him sounds ordinary but the content and taste were outstanding. A glass of Willamette pinot and a very good coffee made up a lunch that was successful in every way. The place was full - I am not surprised.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good I went backGreat chicken. Lovely avocado croquettes. Unusual chilli ice cream. And it was interesting to see the kitchen staff react when Stephan Pyles came in.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPyles of SmilesI took my darlin' there for a birthday dinner and had a superlative experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial TreatFood was very good. Wife had the cowboy rib eye which is huge. I had the halibut which was small portion but good. Best of the food was the banana cake dessert. Very expensive. $250 for two with wine.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic service, Even better foodAmazing food. Sous Vide beef tenderloin was perfectly cooked. The Manchego chicharone was a nice touch. Service was impeccable as always. I wouldn't expect less.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent customer service,Excellent customer service, great staff and very knowledgeable on the menu!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy guest was from New Orleans,My guest was from New Orleans, which is famous for great food.

Everything was perfect.
We definitely will be back.
We were treated like royalty.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to sit outsideGreat place to sit outside on a nice day! Outstanding salad.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in DallasExcellent food, with very creative menu and cocktail options. Plates were impeccably compiled with multiple reductions and accents to add flavors (including cheese pop rocks in the amazing fois gras compilation.). Stephen Pyles stopped by, which was fun. Very knowledgeable staff. had to ask for water a couple of times, but overall service was fine. More lively than the Mansion or French Room, yet food still outstanding.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGuest ordered Salmon, theyGuest ordered Salmon, they were not impressed nor displeased. I ordered Flat Steak. Really complex flavor under the steak in the compote. Really really good. Smoked crispy Brussels Sprouts were original, not oily yet flavored like a great olive oil/salt taste. Really really good. Then Caesar salad was uninspired. My guess is, there are items on this menu that are cared about, and other items that are fillers. I'm ok with that. I want the best a chef has and don't care about the rest. This was a bus lunch. I will use this place again and I want to explore for dinner at my leisure. I've been chipping away at my top 10 chef's restaurants in Dallas. Flavor was up there with the best. I like it!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good to see a main-lineAlways good to see a main-line restaurant with a little age maintain such high standards in food and service execution. will look forward to another return, as well as any other Pyles institution.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, theThe food was excellent, the service was great, overall very happy4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMArts District FeastThe restaurant is conveniently located across the street from the arts district so it was a nice break from the galleries. We had reservations for a late lunch so there was no crowd to deal with and had the full attention of the staff. The environment was very warm and inviting with an open display kitchen located center stage. I always enjoy the activity of an open kitchen. My partner and I both had a fish dish and we were both very happy with our decision. I had their menu offering salmon which I was told is one of their more popular dishes and I completely understand why with awesome complex but light flavors. My partner had the special snapper on shrimp and grits and they were equally as good. I highly recommend this restaurant.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and theFood was excellent and the staff provided a complimentary dessert for my wife's birthday.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Stephan PylesI have been to Stephan Pyles several times and each time has been an enjoyable experience.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch was great.

Can't wait to go back again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter brunch menu-notGreat Easter brunch menu-not too loud nor did we feel crowded next to another table...so relaxing we were there almost three hours.
The fried chicken was not greasy at all-fantastic.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDissapointingThe restaurant has a very modern and vibrant feel, however there were very few customers for a Friday night. We started with cocktails at the bar, my wife had the Passion Chile Margarita & I had the Old Fashioned. Excellent drinks, bar staff very friendly & helpful. Oysters & pork jowl for appetizers both good, not great. Halibut (recommendation from waiter) was dry and uneventful, 22oz. bone-in-ribeye covered in four stories of onion strings (cooked perfectly to medium rare) too much seasoning for USDA Prime meat. Wines list was good and affordable, Pinot from Oregon & France did not break the bank. We have been wanting to try this restaurant for years, the build up to a James Beard nominated Chef was very dissapointing.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSuberb service and truly thenaSuberb service and truly thena Texas culinary gem!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHad vendors in from out ofHad vendors in from out of town and out of country.

The food was prepared exceptionally well with the exception of the "Capirotada." It was a major disappointment. The waiter was good but too pretentious.
