FT33 Ratings and Reviews
Totally disorganized kitchen ruined service. Cold dishes .Manager claimed their food is designed to be served at room temperature . Really ?
Presentation in drab bowls a big miss . Farm to table concept does not disguise mediocre culinary underpinnings . A theme restaurant that totally misses.
This restaurant used to showcase the chef’s understanding of food - texture, acids, etc. This trip was a disappointment. Dishes seemed lost - way too bitter and overcooked. Server lacked usual friendliness too. Hope FT33 can come back to what it used to be!
The service at this place was pitiful. I’m hoping we caught them on a bad night for the restaurant’s sake. It was my birthday dinner and when the waiter took our order I could tell he was frustrated with my friend’s and I’s dietary restrictions, so he just left midway of taking our order and went to another table. I was horrified. This also came as a shock bc when I made the reservation, the restaurant was made aware of our dietary restrictions. Eventually, the host caught on to what had happened to us and he took our order. With that said, we had to start from square one with our order. When the food finally came, they forgot my friends meal altogether which is awkward for everyone else that is ready to eat that has manners. Also, it was not like we weren’t spending money. We each had a couple of cocktails and got a couple of dishes. With it being my birthday, that really sucked. I always like to end on a positive note if leaving a review and I will say that my Gnocchi was fabulous.
1) We had a reservation and ended up waiting for another 20+ minutes at the bar.
2) Drinks were just so-so
3) When our table was ready, we asked the hostess if they could bring our drinks to the table when they were ready and she told us to "wait at the bar and bring our own drinks to the table when the drinks were ready." I've never had this happen before
4) Every item we ordered on the menu was extremely salty.
5) Service was slow
FT33 is an experience for sure. From the moment you arrive the staff is wonderful. They are welcoming, efficient and very knowledgeable.
The dining experience is very different compared to most places in Dallas. The food combinations and presentations are outstanding. Keep an open mind and enjoy.
Ambiance in great for a date or special occasion. Not exceedingly fancy but very pleasant. Lights are dim and everything was impeccably ordered and clean.
Portions sizes were great. Food was new and different and a welcome experience. A couple items seemed overly salty but overall that did not detract from the experience. The waiter was very knowledgeable and literally walked us through the entire menu since it was confusing to some of us. The open kitchen was very quiet which is not always the case and was perfect. The cocktails were great as well (both the wine by the glass and the craft cocktail)
Carefully crafted small plates with locally sourced vegetables, grains and proteins. This is really food exploration and most dishes hit the mark with "road less traveled" flavor and spice combinations. Service was outstanding and attentive, although this is not a fast paced meal. Each course takes time to prepare (you can watch them doing it), so bring some chill friends and conversation. Menu changes seasonally.
We came to FT33 for our anniversary and were welcomed with a complimentary glass of champagne. Everyone we talked to made sure to wish us well, we really appreciated that personal touch. Then came the food, and we were blown away! Every bite felt like an adventure. For the Dallas area this level of creativity in cooking is rare. At the end of the meal they brought our desserts with ‘Happy Anniversary’ written in chocolate on our plates. One last personal touch that left us feeling smart for choosing this restaurant to celebrate our special day. Unforgettable.
The chef and pastry chef are award-winning and exceptionally talented. The food was exceptional, and the service made sure to tell us about the personal experiences, awards, and status of the chef and restaurant. However, the quantity of food was shocking - $30 for 8 small slices of refined deli meat...and very small main course to boot, each for the price of $40. Be prepared to pay a large sum for a small amount of food, although exceptionally prepared. Was shocked by how different the experience and prices were from the information I gathered on Open Table, which had three dollar signs, and a price range of $31-$50 per person. As well, the decorations were incredibly minimal, and the chairs were very uncomfortable. Overall, would not return.
I hate to write that after waiting years to dine at FT33, I was disappointed. It isn't that the food was bad, it was ok. We did the tasting menu, but no wine pairing, as our waiter noted it was a better deal to buy wine by the bottle. I was a little confused why you would have a wine pairing that is not supported and encouraged by wait staff. Each dish was a bit salty and did not have any "wow" impact. It was fine, the service was good, but at the end of the day I expect a lot more for the amount of money spent. There are too many great restaurants in Dallas to dine here again.
It’s been a little while since we went to FT33 and after last night we’re in no rush to go back. The service was poor. After taking our initial order, we didn’t see our waiter again until we were almost done with our entrees. It wasn’t until then that he asked if we wanted to order any wine - our cocktails to start having long since run dry. The menu at FT33 is always very limited and this time relatively uninspired. He encouraged us to order the steak, saying it was his favorite thing on the menu, and I have to say it was beyond disappointing. It was dry, overcooked, and honestly had no business being on that menu. The flavor and creativity level was surprisingly low. The dessert was good, but on its own certainly not worth going back for. FT33 has seen better days.
The most creative menu in Dallas/Ft Worth! The raw beef with pepper kimchi was a perfect blend of flavors. The gulf fish crudo combined elements like apples, hot peppers and lemon basil kosho in the most imaginative dish! I was reluctant to try the park presse, but this savory entree was amazing. My husband was not as impressed with his heirloom radish starter or his Babette steak. He did find the shaved pork loin course amazing! Desserts were also unique combinations of the freshest ingredients that brought the meal to a perfect end. Wine pairings were quite good and perfect pairings. This is not a restaurant for eaters who are not adventurous. We truly enjoyed the excellent dishes and service.
