Food was, as usual, very good! Again the service, not so much. They are just so much busier
now with all the Winspear traffic and there not being very many close places to eat before the
performance. It is very noisy and after the waiter moved a table around, it was very crowded.
Was never asked if I wanted another drink and had to flag down wait staff to actually get the
first one delivered.

Usually go here before theater performances because of the good food, reasonable prices, and quick service. The service has been terrible the last 2 times, with us having to request the check multiple times. When it does finally arrive, there are errors. Both times. We will be dining elsewhere from now on, which is unfortunate since Jorge’s has been reliable in the past.

The last time we were there, the service was very poor. We decided to give Jorge's one last try, and the service is much improved. Adequate staff to handle the pre-theatre crowd, and everything was handled correctly. Nice turn around!

Had a large group of friends together prior to a concert at the Performance Center (across the street). Service was “speedy”, friendly and professional. Happy hour Margaritas are a plus! I had the brisket tacos that were delicious. Love having a meal here prior to a concert as it is so convenient.

We've been here many times while attending the ballet so we always like it. This time however it was disappointing as my son specifically asked for no cheese on his entree as he is Lactose intolerant. But it did indeed come with cheese so he tried to pick out the chicken. Would have sent it back but it took a long time for our order to come out and we didn't want to miss the performance. They did take it off the check, so thanks for that.

We made an online reservation through OpenTable. We checked the available hours and selected a reservation time. We received confirmations via email that the reservation was set. We drove for 1 hour to get to the restaurant and when we arrived, the restaurant was CLOSED! A big waste of our time. OpenTable cannot be trusted to make or confirm reservations.

Have been here many times before. Something has changed. Service is truly terrible. Gave my drink order to 3 different waiters, and finally got the wrong drink after 20 minutes, then had to wait some more for the correct drink. There was no greeter at the door, and I did not see anyone acting as manager, so lots of customers stood around wondering what to do. There was no one there except 3 or 4 waiters and customers. No one seemed to realize that there were any problems. The food order was correct, and the food was as good as always, when it finally arrived. The house was about 2/3 full.

Service was very poor. Waitress was very slow and we had to actually call her over and say "just when will our food be ready". Oops, she had left it sitting on the counter! She
then brought the wrong order to my friend. There was not time to reorder, but she did
manage to find the correct order. Probably then took the wrong order and gave it to
someone else. Did not check on us until it was time to leave. This is the second visit in
a row with poor service. We have season's tickets at Winspear and Jorge's is a very
convenient place to go and the food is, and was good. If you are that busy, and you do
seem to be, might I suggest more wait staff?

Restaurant has lots of seating outdoors as well as in. Food was just average and a little pricy but probably in line with the location in the city. Margareta was weak, flavorless, and a little watered down. And for $8.50 not anything anyone should consider. Service was good and waiter was very friendly. Great location for area Arts events.

Six friends enjoyed brunch this past Sunday prior to going to Dallas Theatre Center; the location is perfect with a brief walk to the venue with valet parking available. The food was all delicious, our female waitstaff was charming and attentive, we ate inside at a round table--all created a very pleasant brunch.

Feels like a duty to warn others about this inept operation in One Art Plaza. While my dish (the chipotle Caesar salad) was the only truly poor one, all of our foursome were subjected to the same lame service: slow, confused, forgetful. Service became a stressor as we wondered whether we'd be late to our Arts District performance -- and yes, we'd informed the waiter of our timing from the start.

It terribly understaffed, even with full knowledge of reservations. Our server was seriously in the weeds from the get-go! Wrong drinks served, food arrived cold, never could get her attention to address these items. We've dined here often as we are season ticket holders for AT&T Performing Arts Center. But, this was the last time. Service is always off; but, tonight it was non-existent! Management should do a better job of scheduling staff; especially, when they know how many covers there will be due to reservations. Jorge's is able to be viable simply due to their proximity to the Arts District.

I realize several restaurants at One Arts Plaza have struggled and folded through the years. Apparently it is a tough sell for customers who aren't going to the theater nearby. I suspect that is why Jorge's food isn't better than it is. The service was good and the restaurant is extremely convenient to the arts district. Parking at the nearby lot is a third of the cost of parking under the Wyly or the Winspear. But the food simply doesn't measure up. My enchilada, rice and beans all flowed together in one big glop on the plate and the taco was burned around the edges. I really want these restaurants to succeed so we will have a place to go for dinner before the theater. But it will require more attention to the menu and less to getting people in and out.
