As always, Karim is the ultimate host, and the staff are awesome. LOVE the City Cafe Fried Chicken! Our favorite restaurant for ANY occasion - AND they serve a wonderful High Tea too!!!
City Cafe is consistently good. You will never be disappointed. The special entries are often fabulous. Karim the host/owner is always delightful. Ask him for wine recommendations.
We went for brunch and the food was wonderful. Our server was excellent!
I took my date to City Cafe for a belated Valentine's dinner. It was a great time with personal service from our host Karim, our waiter, and staff which made the night special. Be sure to consider any specials available, as we had the Dover sole which was really special. The tortellini escargot was better than what I imagined it would be when we ordered it. The beet salad was great. I ordered a great martini (gin, extra dry, two olives) which was filled all the way to the brim. (Most of the volume is in the top of the glass!) I highly recommend the key lime pie, it was really fantastic!
This restaurant lives up to it's name and captures the spirit of a classy restaurant in downtown NYC, something that made my date very happy to reminisce on.
My second trip to City Cafe, the first was with a big group from Baylor. It was great from the greeting at the door to getting my car. Will definitely return. FYI: it was one of the best steaks I've had in Dallas.
Awesome Valentine’s Day spot!!!
The food was excellent as always; and, Rodrigo did an outstanding job of taking very good care of us--making us once again feel quite special!!!
This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed this spot. Delightful and attentive staff! Clean, bright, beautiful flowers, wonderful food!
The only thing that felt a bit off was that we were enjoying Sinatra, Doris Day, Louis Armstrong when it suddenly switched (mid song) to cheesy 70s music (Andy Gibbs) and then all of sudden we were listening to Stairway to Heaven. We like all that music, but thought the older classics were a better fit with the environment. And, we wish the menu had a few more selections.
Best place in DFW for business lunch
Lunch was absolutely wonderful in all respects! Look forward to returning soon.
Warm quiet ambiance with knowledgeable attentive service. At our table the lamb chops, salmon, and pepper steak entree were all enjoyed. Would recommend asking for a lighter dose of dressing on salad or dressing on the side.
Delicious food in a wonderful warm and quiet setting. You can hear the other people in your party talk. Loved the argentini drink!
I have been to City Café many times for lunch. 99% of the time it's a really really good experience--- environment, service, and food. On this particular occasion--- for whatever reason the gas grill was being inspected so 50-60% of the menu was unavailable. Needless to say this was very embarrassing because this was a client lunch and the client was irritated. Additionally, the server seemed less than knowledgeable about the limited menu that remained. Based on my experience this was not the normal experience for City Café --but disappointing none the less.
Food is always excellent and not over-priced! Rare in Dallas. Service is always first class, and Karim, the maitre'd is exceptionally talented and attentive!
Wonderful lunch, great food and great service.
We always enjoy the quite atmosphere at City Cafe.
