Friendly staff and great food, would highly recommend!
Food wasn’t very good and the service was sloppy.
Super fancy, delicious food, great service, top of line. Great for a date or occasional nice dinner. Pricey.
Great Valentine's night dinner. Attentive service. Great food in a historical setting.
Food was good nothing extraordinary or fantastic. A bit dated unlike the pictures. Service was good. It was quiet enough for a conversation.
Gene was awesome. Took great care of us.
Family dinner handled with outstanding service.
Food was exquisite.
Incredibly slow service even though customers only filled four or five tables - 40 minutes from sit down until 3 salads arrived at the table. Food was average. Prices were a bit more than moderate. The Landmark fills a need for hotel guests but for those like me who work in a nearby office, there are better choices for a business lunch.
Loved the salmon on the Melrose salad. Came with a friend for lunch and it’s a great place for quiet conversation and exquisite service.
Eggs Benedict were superb!
Great place for a business lunch - quiet, stately elegance but not stuffy, pretentious or expensive. Would also be perfect for a ladies lunch
Excellent all around, so much so we'll be back next week! Keep up the good work.
We visited Landmark Cafe on New Year's Day for breakfast/brunch. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. We both had the Eggs Benedict, which was prepared as it should be, but rarely is, with the muffin lightly toasted and the poached eggs not overcooked. We contemplated the new year in the quiet, lovely environs of the historic Landmark. Would recommend the Landmark for a special occasion or any time you want to feel special and pampered. Thank you for a lovely brunch.
We were there for New Years Eve. They were totally not prepared. Food and atmosphere were great but almost THREE HOURS for dinner. Very very slow.
Having made a point to reserve early for the Christmas brunch, I was very upset when I arrived with my family, 5 of us in total, 10 minutes early for our reservation and the host moved us from table 78, in the ballroom to table 110 in a conference room, furthest from the food and looking like a event room at the holiday inn.
Part of the reason that I had booked the Landmark was the wonderful ambience that I had enjoyed on several visits before to the Library Bar and dinner at the hotel. I have also used the hotel in the past for business events. The food was very nice and the staff were attentive and helpful.. certainly I can not complain about that... but I am very very dismayed to have been moved from a room that had Christmas ambience, was where we originally seated and basically shoved to the back of the hotel ( very front room).
I also might add that my 75 year old mother who has mobility issues was with us, seen by both hosts at the front and with this change in location, she was not able to get to and from the table to the buffet...nota problem, we have dealt with this before.
Over all, we had a lovely time as we enjoyed the day as a family... However I will think twice before I book or recommend the Landmark again
The Melrose has become a Christmas family tradition. If it were possible to give 6 stars I would! The setting is beautifully decorated, the food beyond delicious and the service was impeccable! We will be making Christmas reservations as soon as they open!
Not as special as it used to be. No bar at lunch and it was a Christmas Eve lunch. We could only get basic drinks nothing on the specialty cocktails menu was available for our lunch.
Was very quiet and not super Christmas-y
I have met a small group of friends here for several years for our annual holiday get-together. We tend to go on a night that's not too busy so we have time to visit and enjoy the food and atmosphere. This year, the food seemed even more delicious than ever. Two of us ordered the roasted pork tenderloin, and both agreed it was outstanding. The other diners gave similar rave reviews to their choices. The service was attentive without being overwhelming. Although we did linger after dinner, and the restaurant was not crowded, we never felt rushed to leave. The Landmark continues to be top of our list for special occasions. Thank you for enhancing our annual tradition of good food and lively conversation with great friends.
Service and food was great. The atmosphere was okay. A little noisy for only a few people in the dinning room. Was a special occasion for a Birthday and noted it in the Opentable reservation but none of the staff acknowledged the Birthday. I even had a card that was laying on the table. This was disappointing.
The dining experience was very good except that there was no hostess to greet or seat us despite having a reservation. An apologetic waiter finally seated us.
Great service, nice atmosphere, and excellent food.
Rafael and his assistant were professional, helpful, warm and discreet, allowing us a wonderful visit and private conversation and celebration in leisurely fashion. Food wonderful and love the homey elegance of the Melrose and its Landmark Restaurant.
I reserved a table and received confirmation via Open Table, only to arrive and find the restaurant closed for a private function. No communication at all about it from the restaurant before or after the incident; they deserve Zero Star.
Five Stars to the manager of the Library who very kindly took us in and offered us drinks while we looked for another place for dinner.
We went to the Landmark Restaurant with family for a early brunch on Thanksgiving day and while the brunch was far from inexpensive the experience was exceptional. What was probably most impressive was the abundant range of choice, from a more breakfast-based brunch to a more dinner-based brunch. Everything was fresh, well-prepared, and continuously supplied. The setting was, of course, marvelous. But so, too, was the service. We had to shift an initial reservation to accommodate the travel plans of part of our party. We were called back promptly and our reservation expeditiously revised. Once there, staff were courteous and attentive. Everyone in our party agreed it was one of the best Thanksgiving experiences we had had recently, and it is certainly one we would recommend and would consider again in the future.
As others have mentioned, we found it odd to be so empty on a Friday night. It didn’t impact our experience. The food was all excellent and the service on point. One note though: it’s not a quick dinner. Apps, dinner and dessert took a little over 2 hours. If you have the time and don’t mind a leisurely meal, it’s a good choice.
Gene was absolutely amazing. He provided excellent service!
We went there for Sunday brunch for my husband’s birthday. We were in town for a few days from SC, but used to live in Dallas.
We have fond memories of the Landmark, and we decided to go there as part of a day of celebration.
The food and environment were both excellent, and the service by Gene and the hostess, Sarah, superb!!
Tastefully decorated consistent with the hotel’s historical status. Calm. Food was good, but not fabulous or particularly memorable. Brunch cocktail options were virtually non-existent, which was a major negative since a significant factor in choosing to brunch there was a prior (lovely) experience at The Library (well-made cocktails make a the difference between a good brunch and a great one for some of us). Servers were nice, but there timing was off resulting in delays and gaps.
Dining at the Landmark is an hidden jewel with great, personable service, gourmet fresh American food and a beautiful, quiet place. The chef is not getting his due: juicy perfect lambchops, grilled fish, mussels mariniere and great wines. The hot spot is the Library for live entertainment afterwards.
Ultimately, the food was good but dodgy. My fella ordered crabcakes as an appetizer. We waited quite a bit. The crabcakes were then brought with the meal. By then, we felt they were too late. He ordered a beautifully cooked rack of lamb. I ordered a medium filet, but it came well-done (brown, no pink, no juice). (To be fair, I seldom get a steak cooked to my liking on the first try. "Medium" most often comes to me red and not pink and "medium well" is always well-done. I ask for "medium plus" and request it juicy and PINK.) The refire was excellent -- pink and juicy -- and I was not charged for the filet. The sides were delicious and the chocolate bread pudding was quite a surprise. (We like the bread pudding at the Myerson. The chocolate chip was really good - not to sweet!) I would go back, but would have to be quite explicit regarding when we want the appetizer and exactly how to cook my steak.
This was just not our scene. It was basically empty when we arrived- only one other table- and we had already enjoyed a drink at the bar and were getting a little feisty. We kept shhshing each other because we felt too loud. We went for Restaurant Week, only to find they weren't participating that week; not sure how we were able to book it when they weren't doing it (might be Open Table's fault). We had really great service and enjoyed our waiter; the food we ordered was fine, but nothing outstanding. One of the girls realized she had actually eaten there before for lunch and remembered it being empty and quiet then, as well. Maybe it was the season? Not sure, but, again, just not our scene. Might be good for a date night...
Service and ambiance are always good here. Came for brunch, and omelette was a bit bland. Never add salt/pepper to my food, but HAD to on this outing. Hash browns were perfection!
Dinner during restaurant week was excellent. Ordered various items and all were prepared/cooked very well.
Our reservation was for lunch on a Tuesday. We were a party of five just having a casual lunch but we were the only diners the entire time we were there! Our food and service was fine but we just thought it strange to have the entire restaurant to ourselves. As we were leaving at 2:00 PM, two more people walked in.
We always have a wonderful time that's why we keep coming back. We love the restaurant and the entire staff not just in the restaurant but you valet guys couldn't be more accommodating especially when three cars full of females show up with gifts to be unloaded and never stopped smiling.
We had a friendly reception at the door, and were given a spacious table in a quiet area of the room. The service was friendly and accommodating. Food was well prepared and tasted just fine. The ambience is traditional and tasteful. We have enjoyed dining here a number of times, and would recommend it to friends and visitors.
Food was excellent. Atmosphere quiet and classy. The waitstaff was great.
Low volume day, but great staff. Very attentive to our needs and the food was awesome.
I think this is truly a LANDMARK hotel and restaurant for Dallas. I love its old school charm and appeal, but up-to-date trendy appearance. The food was terrific and I love the decor. Our waiter was lovely. All of this, and I was so excited for Dallas brunch, only to find out that "our bar is closed". They had some basic drinks such as blood Mary or mimosas, but no trendy cocktails to go with the whole "brunch vibe". Dallas is so well-known for its brunch scene. I feel the Landmark needs to take it to the next level and open the bar and create some trendy brunch cocktails to tag along to its amazing quality on all the other fronts.
