Diner Reviews
  • "Scallop and Halibut and Grand Marnier Souffle were the stars tonight. Sole, Fois Gras, sorbets were very good but not elevated. The crab cake is spongy and eggy and nothing about a beautiful lump crab cake-- bad. Service was lovely as always, although seems to have lost it's perfect grace. Still one of the loveliest experiences in Dallas in the most beautiful restaurant in Dallas."

  • "Great 5 Star dining experience. From when you pull up with the Valet, to your entry into the main lobby, to your walk over to the entrance to the French Room. Your greeting at the door, to your table where a team takes over on making sure you are taken care of. The food is wonderful, exciting, and full of the proper character for the feel of the entire place. If I have a complaint is the menu needs to have a few new items added on a seasonable basis but each entre is on its own great, and taken all together great. Fixed Price menu lets you pick around, and the Chef can tailor the food if you have a food allergy or similar request. My wife likes the fact that the flowers are fresh, and that the candles are changed during dining."

  • "I really like dining here in the winter when it gets dark at dinner time. The room lights up more then. However, anytime is still wonderful. There's a good crowd an hour or so into the evening. I dined alone, and they brought me fashion magazines and coffee to entertain in between courses. It's really just lovely, and I am much more comfortable due to the politeness of everyone."

  • "It is elegant, the food and service are fabulous. Try the crabcakes or the diver scallops for starters. For entrée, try pretty much anything. The duck, the filet, the veal tenderloin were all perfect. Waiters are very attentive. Also, try the taster's menu. They do not require everyone at the table to choose this like some other restaurants and they know how to time or synch the courses for this versus the standard menu. Bring your wallet as it is pretty expensive. We go there for special occasions."

  • "In all respects a classic dining establishment with superb wait staff. The French Room provides an experience that allows a real appreciation of excellent cuisine presented by talented chefs and presented by an experienced, very attentive wait staff."

  • "The French Room remembers what it was like to have an elegant meal in a first class restaurant. Beginning with their requirement for men's jackets, continuing through their beautifully furnished quiet dining room where the tables are spaced far enough to give some privacy this restaurant reminds you of a formal night out with your parents. Despite the formal surroundings, the staff is surprisingly friendly, chatty and helpful. The maitre d'hotel really knows his dishes. Oh yes, the food. Magnificent."

  • "The French Room lived up to its reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Dallas. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by dining at the French Room where we were greeted and immediately taken to our table which was spaced nicely and allowed for privacy but we were still able to take in the gorgeous interior of the restaurant in its entirety. The three course meal was delicious (best crab cake I've ever had) and my husbands tenderloin melted in our mouths! The dark chocolate soufflé for dessert…I wish I could go back now to have another. they also gave us a delightful amuse bouche prior to the appetizer and a little sampler plate of confections before dessert. The staff attended to our every need and always with a smile."

  • "We went back to The French Room for our anniversary, after having gone for Restaurant Week last year. Everyone (from the valet captain to the servers...not just the maitre d'!) remembered us. The food was wonderful, and we were surprised with an anniversary dessert (after the dessert that we ordered!), and a loaf of gingerbread to take home for breakfast. Yes, it is the French Room, and exquisite service is a given, but they really do have their craft down to a T!!!"

  • "There's the French Room and then there's everything else. Dallas has no lack of fine-dining offerings but the French Room unfailingly satisfies like none other! From the greeting and hospitality of the maitre d', the expertise of the wait staff, the inspiration of the sommelier, to the glow of an evening divinely spent, the French Room occupies an echelon of its own!"

  • "My husband and I celebrated his birthday here. We were prepared to rate this restaurant a five star after the appetizer and the main course, but the dessert ruined it. I ordered the soufflé, which was soggy inside. He ordered some kind of coconut tart that I did not even take a second bite. The staff was very attentive and friendly."

  • "We truly enjoyed eating here for our anniversary last Saturday. The tenderloin was to die for! I've never had a better steak anywhere in my life, and the sauce with it was incredible as well. $80 per person for three courses really is not that bad, but if you add a bottle of wine it adds up quickly. The service was near flawless, and how you would expect it to be at such a fine place. Will definitely return to enjoy the food and the beautiful atmosphere."

  • "My wife and I ate at the French Room on June 7th. We went with the chef's menu and it was all very delicious. The wine parings were very good and complimented the food as they should. The service was exceptional! We will be back when we are in Dallas."

  • "We celebrated our 35th anniversary there. Familiar with the French Room's reputation as Dallas residents for a number of years. Don't know exactly what we expected but everything about the experience exceeded expectations. The crab cake was the best ever and the soufflé was alone worth the visit. Expensive, exclusive, yes, but the staff was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was upscale, but relaxed. As high end restaurants in Dallas go, this quite possibly is our favorite. We certainly will be back and it will not require a special occasion to lure us!"

  • "Our server was fantastic. Francisco. Loved him- would go back for him alone! The entire staff was wonderful. The food was good- but not as amazing as I was expecting. (My steak was over cooked and served cold) We had fun taking our time and enjoying multiple courses, and dessert was divine. Being a native Texan, I've had a ton of steaks, and this one was not as good as the others I have had, unfortunately. It was good, just not worth the $80 price tag. The ambiance is like how we imagine a State dinner would be. Our wine was fantastic. They went out of their way to ensure everything was allergy safe for me, which was very nice. It was an experience! "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This restaurant consistently offers some of the best food in Dallas. Neither trendy nor stodgy, the food generally is traditional with a modern twist. If you like foie gras (and don't mind the $10 upcharge), this is the place for you. The crabcake is the best I have tried, all crab with seemingly no filler. I don't know how it holds together. Service is wonderful, warm and never condescending. Wine is no bargain but the list is extensive, and even wine by the glass is thoughtfully chosen. The service is very leisurely, so don't try this if you are in a hurry. It's the kind of place where you get an amuse-bouche, sorbet between courses and and even banana bread to take home for breakfast."

  • "As it was in the beginning and throughout it's vibrant history, The French Room remains one of the best restaurants of it's kind on the face of the Earth. Connie & the rest of the team delivered flawless service, and the kitchen artisans created culinary perfection in taste, presentation, originality & proper portion. My wife Kimmer & I shared both the scallops & lobster appetizers, the halibut & rack of lamb entree's, followed by one of the best Grand Marnier Souffle in town. (second only to Old Warsaw). For us, the ambiance is perfect. As is usually the case, you get what you pay for; & in this case, it was worth every nickel as usual. "
