Lark on the Park has been one of my favorite destinations since its opening for a a unique dining experience , and my husband and I have been to Sunday brunch many times for the changing out of the chalkboard art. Therefore, I was extremely disappointed on last Wednesday at lunchtime expecially after bringing friends who had never dined there before. My friend's hamburger was delicious, but my salmon chop salad was extremely disappointing. It appeared that the chef had used the very last leaves in the kitchen and they were sparse. Also, no jicama as promised on the menu, and the salmon appeared to be only around an ounce. We have had unique, delicious meals there in the past, but mine was a huge disappoinment. I ate the salad, because we had been walking through Klyde Warren Park and I was starving. My other friend had the Park salad and the sorghum croutons were left out. Our service was excellent and ambience was great, but I probably will not be back for lunch.

Good menu, not too many choices but all had something different about it. The chips that came with the queso fundido were under-fried, making them oil soaked and chewy. Otherwise, the rest of the food was excellent!

Service was not great, but I think it was because of the specific waiter (sorry, I do not remember his name). he kept interrupting, clearing plates clumsily and getting in the way. At one point I had to stop eating because he was reaching across me to clear and his fist full of dirty forks was so completely in my face I thought he would get food on me if I did not move.

I would go again, I hear brunch is really good, but will try for a different waiter next time.

We have been here several times. This is the first time it was a bad experience. Our food was wonderful. Our waiter would disappear and act inconvenienced to get things for us. Toward the end we felt like we were almost rushed out. So much so, that we ended up across the street to have an after dinner drink because LARK wasn’t interested in us staying.

Where do I start! From the door service was 100% we started as a party of 3 that needed up only being 2 and we’re still seated at probably prime real estate that would accommodate 4 on a Saturday night at 8:00. We were greeted almost immediately with waters and our drink order was taken within 2 minutes, following our bottle of wine within 5! The executive chef described almost each dish if not all to us, took his time and made us feel like we were the only guest in the restaurant! Our server was attentive but not overly intrusive, had stellar recommendations, even continued to check on us after our checked was dropped! Coming from a former hostess at meddlesome moth (there sister restaurant) , current hostess in the hall arts building, and active diner and 10 year employee industry (in which they had no clue) Bravo lark

My husband and I were here for lunch midweek. We enjoyed the beer and basil lemon cooler. However, he ordered grilled chicken with roasted corn and wild mushrooms -- the corn and mushrooms were very good but the chicken was minute (looked more like a quail or cornish hen). I enjoyed the lamb burger and had asked for a sub for frites -- the fresh fruit was very nice but the charge for the change was $4 (not explained by the waitress).

Our dinner at LARK was really great. The food was fantastic and the portions were very generous. The only complaint I have is it is very loud in there. Everyone's voices echo through the hollow shell of a space and the music is loud so you cannot hear a word that is said.

I always feel welcome and comfortable at Lark. The location across from Clyde Warren Park is excellent, the ambiance is soothing and promotes easy conversation, the food is eclectic and tasty, the service is attentive, but never rushed, and friendly, and the ever-changing artwork on the walls adds a flair. One of my favorite places to dine in Dallas.

This restaurant has great ambience and our waiter was very friendly. Food arrived in a timely manner and Friends shared the ribeye and it was great. My scallops were delicious but my salad was poor. The boiled eggs had obviously been sitting out for a while and the peaches were brown. I would just be very inquisitive about the freshness of their salads. I think they are premade, which is disappointing considering the caliber of the rest of the meal. On the other hand, my friend ordered the octopus appetizer and it was delicious.

This was my second time there but first @ the new location (Am I not remembering that correctly?) The service was genial, the (one) mixed drink (I asked for a pricey gin) surprisingly weak and the wines by the glass great (didn’t taste like wine that’s been sitting open for too-many-hours). My companion praised her dish (the C.A.B. steak) but raved about the arugula salad. My cassoulet was meaty enough but the pork loin was a bit dry and the dish a bit heavy on the salt. Still, I would have it again. Desserts were a delight.

Despite being the last two people in the restaurant, arriving minutes before the kitchen closed, we got excellent, attentive, friendly service at the bar from Kelsey, and everything we ate was scrumptious. I had been to LARK many times for business lunches, but this was my first time to try LARK’s Apres Theatre menu. My date was vegetarian so we ordered and shared delicious small plates including addictive brussels sprouts fried in sherry; cool, sweet summer gazpacho; fresh, light beet salad; melt-in-your mouth pimento cheese fritters. As always, they have full bar service until midnight including non-alcoholic options including new flavors of kombucha on tap. As always the freehand-drawn chalkboard murals by local artists add to the ambience. Between late August summer heat and the Labor Day holiday, it was an unusually slow night; but nevertheless the kitchen remained open until 11pm. It was a safe and pleasant walk from the Arts District’s Dallas Theater Center after an opening night performance. Highly recommended, and I’ll definitely return.

We wanted the pre theater menu but that is only available on the weekends. Anyway, we had the spicy mussels, with a great sauce you will want more bread for. I had what my husband calls “a winter dish” -the cassoulet. It was very hearty with savory thyme flavored beans and beautifully carved pork loin or something similar. Almost enough for 2 people. My husband had a special salad that he opted to adorn with four gigantic shrimp. We had a lovely table near the windows and enjoyed a peaceful dinner pre theater.

The menu looked a little "uncommon" when we first started reading it, but the steak, fries, salad and asparagus that I had were all extremely good. My wife's salmon salad was outstanding as well.
We now have a pre-show restaurant favorite.
It was a little pricey. We spent $89 before tip, with no alcohol.
Don Julio Anejo, which I buy at Spec's for under $60 per bottle, was $18/shot.

It was nice food in a nice location. I asked to switch to a table for 5 instead of 4 (before ordering) when we realized we had an extra and the hostess moved us to another 4 top in a darker corner and forgot to bring us the 5th chair. The food was still good; however, they weren’t particularly busy, and yet our server still forgot to bring us a couple small things. All around good food, beautiful area, and most likely an isolated incident of just okay service.

We love this place but last night’s pre-theater visit left something to be desired.

At 6pm there was leftover food debris along the windowsill and on the floor at our table. Had it been mid-evening, one might take it in stride, but we were among the first diners there.

Both food and service was good, although a bit slow for a specifically early seating.

Everything was great, except for a couple of food details that were left off of the menu. First, make sure guests know that the nitro brew is sweetened; it does not say that on the menu and it was an unpleasant surprise! Second, I ordered a benedict and had carefully read the ingredients list, as I cannot eat dairy. I requested no hollandaise, but the dish came with cheese, which was not listed. I HATE wasting food, and this could have been avoided by listing all of the ingredients.

My girlfriend and I decided to eat at Lark on the Park before watching a movie at Klyde Warren Park. It was a Tuesday event and fairly quiet, which made service speedy and efficient. I had a glass of rose and rioja. The server was generous enough to let me sample the rioja and a cab before I made my selection, which I greatly appreciated.

My girlfriend got the halibut with gnocchi and love it. I got the 18 oz New York strip and was very impressed with the quality and size. Overall, the food more than met the higher expectations for a place that charges $30+ a plate.

It was a solid meal at a price that comes with that quality. I do recommend.
