  • "The French Room is in a lovely old- fashioned but light room with attentive service, marvellous food (the crab cakes are the tastiest I've eaten and the duck delicious) and a quiet, highly enjoyable atmosphere. The staff made us very welcome too. Expensive bur worth it if you have something special to celebrate."

  • "The French Room far, FAR exceeded my expectations. The last fine dining experience I had prior to visiting The French Room was in New York at Per Se. The French Room outdid Per Se in every way during my visit. Specifically, I was a single woman dining alone and I was truly treated like a queen. Carlos, my waiter, was generous with his hospitality and charm. Go to this restaurant….everything about it is top notch, not the least of which is the warmth and joy shared by the staff with the diner."

She is still raving about the Crab Cake appetizer. Our server was very helpful with making helpful thoughts suggestions about the food and history of the French Room. Thank you"

  • "And I found the servers, particularly one, a little too "familiar" to my liking. I don't know, my 3rd or 4th time there in the last 10 years....seems to be overpriced for what you experience and taste."

  • "We visited The French Room for my birthday dinner. I wanted to choose an elegant place that really felt special, because we have a 2-year-old and rarely go out. This was the best meal I have ever tasted, and the service was attentive and sincere. I had the scallop appetizer with the duck entree. There were so many amazing flavored that complimented one another. I loved the little details like the tiny scoop of raspberry sorbet served in a chilled flower bowl, the sugar lumps for my cappuccino, and the little chocolates at the end. This place is too special to go every weekend. Treat yourself on a special occasion."

    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Delectable food from start to finish! Perfectly executed dishes are seamlessly served for the diner's pleasure by an extended staff. We ordered a three course dinner but were served additional treats throughout the meal. Before our appetizers, a palette teaser of tuna tartar was delivered - tiny by the looks of it but we savored it in more bites then we thought possible. Seared Diver Sea Scallop was happily married with chanterelles and the crab was pure in its cake bound only by the rich shellfish broth. A wonderful raspberry sorbet palette cleanser was followed by perfectly executed Halibut and Black Angus tenderloin. Strawberry Verbena Bavarian and the Grand Marnier Souffle were both exceptional and followed by assorted petite treats."

  • "My wife and I were in Dallas for a convention and discovered The French Room on Open Table. Everything about the dining experience was outstanding as predicted from the many excellent reviews. First, the room is beautiful and has a grandness to it. Although it looks quite formal, the dining experience is quite relaxing thanks to an outstanding group of hosts and servers that make you feel quite at home. The food was inventive and wonderful, and finishing with a soufflé was perfect. We like to eat at fine restaurants when we travel and The French Room is certainly one of our favorites. I hope we get a chance to get back to Dallas soon."

  • "The Mr. at the valet was very professional, well mannered, and prompt. The hostess called us by name, and promptly took us to our table. We were greeted by Connie, our captain was a breath of fresh air. She ensured us that we would enjoy this "experience". As this was our first time at such a classic dining experience, she took extra time to explain the dishes and proper etiquette. She took our photos, answered all of our questions, and even had general small talk with us. She made us feel as if we were neighbors. She was very transparent, and spoke highly of the restaurant. Connie is the best at what she does, and we will be returning. Connie will be requested when we make reservations."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "From the Maitre D to all the servers, the French Room knows how to give you a great experience. It was our 2nd Anniversary and they truly made us feel special. The food was great, and the room was gorgeous. Worth every penny, for this level of service it was a relative bargain. I would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • "Incredible night from start to finish. Will Never forget it."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Two old folks wanted to celebrate a quiet but lovely evening of excellent dining in a beautiful setting where the food was prepared with exceptional care and without officious service. We found it in The French Room. Every course was prepared with precision as if it were the principal course. Complementary courses turned a 3 course dinner into a 5 course dinner. A very very nice dinner became and evening of delight."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The most beautiful dining room in North America. The food, presentation and service are the best in the business. Most of the French Room team has been there for decades. They work together like a flawless work of art. They become family. I highly recommend and always do the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings. It never disappoints and is always an exquisite journey. Spoil yourself and experience the best!"

  • "We were staying at the Adolphus hotel in January and decided to try the restaurant. I can not say enough about the service we received from Francesco. He has truly mastered the art of taking care of his customers. He was charming and observant and we wanted for nothing. Obviously the rest of the wait staff are on their game too and enough can't be said about the whole crew. The food was outstanding and one of the best meals I have had in along time. I could not think of anything that they could have improved upon."
