We had an early dinner. It was very enjoyable, not too crowded or noisy. The dining room is broken up into separate areas so will not get too bad even when full. Beet salad was tasty, salmon and redfish both well prepared. We topped it off by sharing a sous vide cheesecake topped with macerated strawberries. We all agreed worth another trip.

The food was great until the main courses. Both fish dishes were overdone. The tuna was so salty it was not edible. The staff quickly brought out the flat iron steak, which was very good. Service was great. They just need to let the fish speak for itself a bit more.

The food was pretty fantastic and the service outstanding. The building is older and with the huge glass windows it just doesn't seem to cool down in the restaurant like it should when it has been 95 degrees outside or warmer, which for Dallas in the summer, happens often. It was stuffy throughout our dining experience. We were in the private glass room to the side, which I think was warmer than the rest of the restaurant. Other than being warm, our experience was great.

We went for DFW restaurant week and did the limited menu. It is definitely a great way to test out the restaurant at a fixed price and we were glad we did. The service was great. Sam, our waiter, was friendly, helpful, & just great overall. The food was incredibly delicious. I did the wine pairing with the meal and was glad I did. All in all a wonderful experience and we'll definitely be going back.

Delicious swordfish! Savored every bite! Great service and valet parking made it very easy to arrive on time at 6 pm downtown. We were greeted with complimentary champagne and "Happy Anniversary" upon arrival. Very nice! This is a great place for an early dinner before catching a show at the Dallas Summer Musicals - 7 minutes away. All in all, a perfect evening!

It was very warm, uncomfortably so for a $100 dinner after working all day. The food was pretty good, but the service was very average. Nothing they could do about the warm conditions. They kind of looked at me like a deer in the headlights.

Very expensive, especially when the service is so average.

I won't be returning.

Had a business party of 7, everything started out perfectly, champagne and tuna apertif, drinks, etc. Nadine, our waitress could not have been more pleasant. Then during entrees-the wheels came off. Lots of mix ups-nothing came out at same time, one guest never even received the entree-our waitress and manager-made several apologies-and even reduced the bill-but it was a bad night-and hard to forget!

When we walked in it smelled fishy, & the AC was broke. The only reason we stayed was our waitress was wonderful! The sushi was delicious, too! The clam chowder & beet salad was also very good.

I want to start off by saying that we were difficult given that we were a party of 10 and a variety of people had different food allergies. That said the service left something to be desired. While the waiter was very nice I felt like we continually had to follow up on things throughout the meal. Secondly while certainly not a knock on the waiter, the wine selection was non-existent. We must have asked for 5 different bottles on the menu only to find every time that they were out of it. I feel like it would be unfair to characterize the wait staff as terrible but when you’re paying $40-$50 a plate you come in with some expectations and the experience left me wanting more. Overall the food was good so I guess that should be more important in the grand scheme which is why it felt wrong to rate this restaurant any lower than a 2

Very kind (as usual in USA) service. However when it comes to delivery, service is sloooooow and erratic. Staff brought second dishes without removing previous ones. The guest diners had to help removing dishes to organized the table.

The food we had was very tasty. My main complaint is that for main entrees there was about 3 fish choices and 3 meat choices. There wasn’t even a shrimp dish offered as a main course. On a Weekend evening, I am also used to having ‘specials ‘ offered from off the menu to add to your dining choices. There were none.
