Friendly, attentive service. Crab cakes delicious and as flavorful and perfectly textured beef (Flat Iron steak) I have ever had. It was quite amazing. Valrhona Ganache a fitting end to an exceptional dining experience.
We love being able to go late at night being in the service industry. The oysters and reverse happy hour are a great value of course but the service and food are always worth what ever price they may be at the time. The food and atmosphere make it easy to have a wonderful meal and date experience here.
Never disappoints its always a great visit.
Great food, good service, wonderful time. Could not recommend more.
Gemma has become come a favorite spot for my wife and I. I love the pre-meal biscuits- always fresh and hot. In addition, everyone is committed to providing good service-from the hostess to the wait staff. I was a little disappointed in service this most recent visit. I specifically booked the date before Valentine's because I know there's usually a rush and great service can be a challenging. Unfortunately, that was the case this time. After we were seated there was seemingly nobody assigned to our table. Then after an uncomfortable amount of time the bartender/waiter came by. Scott was very gracious and while he did his best to take care of us, it was quite the challenge to go from the bar to our table. As a result, our service was both delayed and disappointing. In addition, my wife's order was wrong when the food finally came out. The manager, came over and graciously apologized. I'm not one to complain but date nites are a logistically nightmare when you have a small child. That being said, I still plan to go back to Gemma's. I'm guessing it was just an off night. Food definitely made up for the service.
We are never disappointed at this restaurant! Food was exceptional. The duck was excellent! The Sommelier was wonderful. I could keep going on... We asked for a special table and Gemma was quick to make it happen. Great place!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas. I have never had a dish I didn't love. I want everything on the menu. The fried olives and warm pecans are a must to start with! The staff was amazing! The hostess sat us immediately at 7pm even though our rezzy was at 715pm. When she called to confirmed she asked if it was a special occasion and I said not really but I started a new job. Well, the restaurant had a congrats card waiting at the table. It was so sweet. The waiter was on point and so friendly. Love this place!
The service was excellent! The restaurant is a little loud, but the patio looked amazing for nice weather days.
Everything was outstanding!
We've seen rave review after rave review about Gemma, and finally decided to come before the symphony. Alison, our server, was attentive, friendly, informative and helpful on recommendations. The by-the-glass Chardonnay (lowest price = Iron Horse at $17) was a little pricey, but it was great wine.
My wife had red snapper and proclaimed it the best in town. I had the duck, which Alison advised was Asian-style with a 5-spice rub. It was absolutely delicious. (We also split a very nice, tasty Caesar salad.)
Gemma isn't close to us, but when we have anything going on Uptown or downtown, we will be back to this wonderful little restaurant!
