I did not know that this was restaurant was in a hotel. I would have not booked it as I think it’s rare that a chain hotel would have a good restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised. The dining room was nice, service great and the food (Easter Buffet) was really good.

Nice restaurant and service was great but food was just ok to me. They didn’t have any daily specials and menu online didn’t seem to be same as one in restaurant (I like to look before going to have idea of what I’ll get)

Menu was kind of farm to table/Mexican which was a little confusing to me. I would possibly go back but just choose different items!

Seating is limited and everything we had needed salt and/or pepper or some seasoning with the exception of the mac and cheese and roasted cauliflower. Had the wagyu cowboy steak for our main course. It was cooked well and very tender but seriously lacked flavor. I’d go back for the mac and cheese alone though!

Very good food, but definitely a convention center hotel restaurant. We thought our mussels were probably the best we have ever had - a great combination of seasoning for the broth, and the mussels themselves were plump and perfectly cooked. The shrimp and grits were fantastic also if you like to actually taste both the grits and shrimp - they were not soaked in cheese/butter like some places. My cioppino was very good but basically just a collection of tasty shell fish and fish - not a lot of soup/stew to go with it. Next time I will get the tomahawk pork chop that I saw go to another table - it looked amazing!
The only negative to the restaurant is how obvious it was we were next door to a convention center in a hotel. Almost everyone in the restaurant was from the same convention and knew each other, so the environment was more of a loud dinner party for them.

My family went for Thanksgiving. The decor was Texas modern but warm and we felt totally at home. Food was fresh and very good. We loved the Brussels sprouts and Mac and cheese. The Thanksgiving special was delicious. The beef tenderloin was perfectly prepared. Service was extremely friendly and accommodating. Overall a great experience for enjoying a holiday away from home. The only criticism for me was there were no dessert wines available.

Asador was a lovely surprise. Hosted a business dinner with a number business colleagues including a couple of foodies. Menu was stocked with attractive options with a notable farm to fire flavor. Started with an excellent cheese and charcuterie board and moved on to entrees including a tomahawk pork chop, several steaks, and an outstanding roast chicken breast. Several bottles of a pleasant Tempranillo later, we sampled multiple dessert all of which were delicious. Our server was attentive and engaged. Overall a great meal in an unexpected spot.

If you are looking for a place that knows the precise source of each ingredient, Asador will delight you. I was given the task of finding a quiet restaurant in downtown Dallas where five relatively unfamiliar business associates could each find something to eat at 5:30 on a Friday night. We wanted to eat at 7:00 and get back to our conference hotel by 9:30. Asador was the only restaurant that showed availability, and I was a little worried that it wasn't booked as well. It is located in the Renaissance Hotel, which sits on a major Highway and so it doesn't get foot traffic except those staying in the Hotel. It was much, much better than the restaurants at our conference hotel that will remain nameless.
I had a beautiful pork chop with a tasty blueberry compote, two others had marvelous burgers topped with a fried egg and the gentlemen to my right had a perfectly done steak while the gentleman to my left consumed a different locally raised slab of meat, which he enjoyed thoroughly leaving a clean plate.
A couple things on their menu were not available, because the ingredients could not be procured, which is a testament to their standards. They wouldn't accept available substitutes of lesser quality.
Everyone had desserts, which they enjoyed. I ordered a peach cobbler, which was the perfect size and quite peachy, but it did not have a cobbler topping. It was more of a crisp. A cobbler has a fluffy biscuit topping. A crisp has a sweeter, crumbly topping that may contain oatmeal, flour, butter & spices. This topping was really somewhere between the two. Not bad at all, but not really cobbler.

Wer went on a day in which a new menu was starting. The staff that we encountered were not trained well in the dishes that were being offered. The waiter did not understand any of our questions. I asked for a mimosa and received a side of ranch dressing.

Asador is one our favorite restaurants. We always enjoy a quiet dinner there whenever we visit Dallas. Asador is famous for its superb recipes and unusual flavor combinations. The wine selection is very good, although the choice of bourbons is extremely limited. The service is always excellent.

Asador is one of the sexier hidden gem fine casual dining places in all of Dallas. Chef Brad Phillips welcomes each diner with excitement and genuine passion about local ranches and farms and providers. He loves to describe the passion of his food sources, and grew up in a sustainable farm. His interesting menu and great staff make a meal a real treat. The bar is fun with a staggering selection of bespoke tequilas and bartenders who know how to creat craft cocktails. This is a restaurant you MUST experience! Fabulosity!

The food was a bit of a let down after reading the description on open table and the whole farm to table descriptions. It was good but just barely an upgrade on Chili's, not as special feeling as The Ranch or Whiskey Cake. We ordered, one pasta and one burger, one iced tea... Total came out $50 and most main courses were $30+. Honestly if the meal had been on the 40s it would have been ok, but 50 + tip ended up feeling overpriced for nothing special. Nothing to see here... Much better hotel restaurants if you want the ambiance. Much better farm to table if you want the food.

Most hotel restaurants are a perfunctory element of the establishment: Asador is capable of standing on its own as an eatery and bar. Top notch food and service. Its a reason for me to pick this hotel over others in the area.

Very strange experience. About 25% full on Friday night at prime time. Much of the good was good but staff was very spotty. Not a cheap meal either. Luckily we had great company that night but honestly I was a little embarrassed that I was the one who picked it. Won't go back.

I been here almost 6 times now . The spicy pei mussels are very delicious . However the only down fall with asadores is 3 times of the six times ive been there is that they dont always have what is listed on menu . The secondtime no mussels where available the 3rd time not braised rabbit available and the last time i went no short rib available even thou ,all this times these items where listed on menu the times i went. I feel if they dont have it they should tell you up front and not 5 mins after youved order it. Btw there margaritas are some of the best ived ever had. Very good food, what i will start doing is looking up the menu online and then calling ahead of time to make sure its available when i visit them .

The only thing I felt lacking was the fact that the bar was a bit slow at getting drinks out to you in a timely matter. The waiter dissappeared at times, but I still would go back as the food was excellent. The only thing I would change is separateing the appetizers and soups/salads on the menu.

Again, what great food and served rather quickly. Was a great night. We will be back.

There was an apparent shortage of wait staff. We had to wait a fair amount between water refills and for the check. The open-faced grilled fish sandwich was outstanding though! We also ordered the chips and salsa side - the salsa was warm and delicious but the chips are very thick and tough to chew.
