Japanese | Deep Ellum, Dallas

My wife and I had never been to a Japanese BBQ before, and as this was our first experience, we were needing a little guidance in what to do. Our server explained everything well and made good recommendations. It was fun and fast which was great because we were trying to make a show afterward. Basically you are in control of how long or short your experience is since you are in near complete control of the preparation of your food. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. More

American | Deep Ellum, Dallas

Food was great, service was less then stellar. We were the only ones in the restaurant which made the poor service and lack of explanation of the courses puzzling. There was one other couple there towards the end that got an app and the Chef came out to greet them. We got the tasting menus and didn’t even get acknowledged. More

I was already been to Zatar, and every time I went there I had always a great time. The food is amazing, the service is very good and the place is so nice! It was my birthday and they surprised me with a dessert with candle, it’s been incredibly sweet of them! Definitely recommend it! More

Food was delicious. However, portion sizes were quite small. Service was excellent. Great location, but parking leaves something to be desired, as is always the case in Deep Ellum. Overall would recommend. More

Latin American | Deep Ellum, Dallas

Came to dance to salsa/latin music for my birthday. They play great salsa 10-11-ish, but no one was dancing yet. Then it switched to mostly latin pop and other pop/dance music. They included a few more merengues, but it's definitely not a salsa dancing venue that attracts salsa dancers. Was more hopeful they would still have a live salsa band, but they said people prefer DJs. If they could improve the quality of their interior, have shows and great cuban food, it would be more what I'm looking for, but Dallas does not have a great salsa scene. Therefore, it was good enough for what we wanted to do. We had fun! They also changed it so we were up in the VIP section for our 10pm reservation, which was great until they asked us to leave before 12. They were nice about letting us stay since we didn't intend to stay too late, but we would have just kept our tables on the floor if we had known we would be kicked out at a certain time. (we did not eat there) More
