Still the best restaurant in Dallas. Not just the food but the people who work there. Good job Jack!

This is my second lunch here within two weeks. Both times I had the Crab Louie, and it is delicious. A great value at $18 since it has so much crab.

the restaurant is lovely and the service is impeccable. My only complaint is that when you are just two people, you are always given the smallest table and close to a large table of a large group. Hard to have an intimate experience. However, when we did complain, they did accomodate us and moved us to a larger, quieter table.

To put is simply... amazing. High End seafood and steak with portions that are larger then expected even for such a high price. Beautiful area and worth every penny. The staff made us fell so welcome and like we were the only people there that night.

Food was amazing. I had the CO lamb and everyone else had seafood. The PEI oysters were a nice treat and I appreciate the menu listing not only name/location of oysters but brine and other details. Very helpful. Our server was oddly pushing us to hurry to order. Odd for fine dining but if that is the restaurant’s preference I wish he would have said so.

Our waiter Walter was absolutely terrific! The bartenders were almost rude.. while waiting for our table we sat at the bar and were basically ignored and not greeted and sat there for at least 20 minutes before being told we will be with you when we can. Was not pleasant. The drinks were not that good. Don’t think I’d sit at the bar again. The food was excellent and again Walter was perfection!

LOVE this place! Go every year just before Christmas and periodically through the year. Always feel like a regular, even though I’m only there a few times a year. The food is always good - especially love the risotto! The sea bass is amazing & so is the sole. I’ve never had a steak there because the seafood is sooo good. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is efficient & friendly. I’ve seen many of the same faces for years- so it must be as good to work there as it is as awesome to eat there. Seriously - go!

Great lunch spot for a business visit. Seafood choices varied and fresh. Highland Park village is a beautiful setting but quite busy during the Christmas season so valet is needed.

Delicious as always! Scallops were Devine, and my friend had the sea bass and said it was perfection. Calamari was very good and clam chowder was fabulous. Wonderful experience, but valet could really some improvements. Yes, it's the holidays, but we had to wait over 15 mins for our car!

The service was exemplary. The waiter's descriptions helped influence our ordering decisions and we were very happy with all our selections. Enjoyed too many of the fried shoestring sweet potatoes that are served when you are first seated. The crab and avocado appetizer presentation is fun - with the lumps of crab in a metal cyclinder that is lifted off so the crab meat falls into the pool of remoulade sauce accented with a few dabs of a spicy hot sauce on the perimeter. The ceviche appetizer of shrimp and scallops in a citrus marindade was quite tasty. The seared scallops (entree) were cooked perfectly. However, the overly salted seasoning diminished a bit the natural flavor of the scallops. I would order them again but request they use less seasoning. The lobster was sweet and succulent and cracked and removed from the shell tableside - so no mess to eat.

I do love eating here- it feels like home with the front of the house making everything comfortable and recognizing you and your favorite drink if you are a regular,with far better food that is impeccably served. Who could ask for more? The back of the house has a chef who can be wonderfully accommodating- now if they’d only add fried clams during the season...it would be Nirvana
