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!
Carlos is awesome, very attentive to detail, we love dining here because of the atmosphere,
elegant, classy and the food is delicious.
Carlos always makes us feel at home.
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!
Reasonable atmosphere. The food is contemporary, but high quality. Drink menu is impressive, and the food menu has good drink pairing suggestions. Excellent for a cocktail friendly expensed meal.
The food was flavorful and unique but the service was slow and lacking personal attention.
Our server was amazing!!
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.
Fabulous, food service and atmosphere.
Great food and great service! I proposed to my girlfriend before dinner and we had a great meal here. Our waiter gave us dessert on the house and even sent a bottle of champagne to our room afterwards. Would definitely go back
Everything was great, the thanksgiving menu was tasteful. I could find space even when it was a holiday evening. thanks
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.
overall good experience. Food took a while to come out, but the server was attentive.
Absolutely great service & food! Stayed at hotel so it was very convenient!
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.
We love dining at Asador, Carlos is awesome, very atentative, always has a smile and
is always very kind.
I recommend Asador for any occasion!
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.
