Food was excellent, service was terrible. A solid 45 minutes passed between us ordering our food and getting our food. The restaurant wasn’t even close to being busy enough to justify the wait. We love this place, so will return at some point…but not until we forget how bad the service was.

This is my favorite restaurant. I have eaten here many times. I would suggest butter plates when the bread is brought out. It’s unthinkable not to have one.

Food was very disappointing, it lacked flavor. For entrees, we had the branzino and halibut, both lacked pizzaz. The whipped ricotta salad was tasty. We had two rocks in our lentil salad. Service was attentive, ambiance was casual French but, didn't make up for disappointing meal.

I booked a 7:30 reservation days ago and we waited 45+ minutes for an available table. There were at least (2) tables of 2 people who were sat at 4 tops just before we walked in just before our reservation time. If they had been seated at the 3 available 2-tops, we would have had a reservation at our reserved time. Once we were finally sat 45+ minutes late, we had to ask to order, ask for more water, etc. Our birthday dinner for 2 friends was ruined due to mismanagement of reservations and poor overall service. I frequently dine at this restaurant and have never had an experience as disappointing as this evening.

This was from day one our favorite restaurant in Dallas - before Covid! Our dining experience tonight was terrible because the food was tasteless, fatty and not what it was before. The previous chefs must be gone. And at 6:40 PM several items were not even available anymore. The French charme was missing at the service - and the whole dinner felt like we were in a bad diner! We were rushed through our dinner - at least they "dumped" a dessert with sparklers on our table because it was our 40th Anniversary. Very unexperienced service. Also no reaction from the restaurant stuff when 4 guys (male guest) came in, making their way to their table and bumping into another guest having his dinner sitting at another table. The guy who bumped into him was touching the mans head and laughing and saying hope he was having a good day! A behavior like in a redneck bar - but not in a restaurant which was once one of the best places in Dallas. This was the last time we will ever go to this restaurant.

Very loud, party crowd. Club music began playing at 1pm so we couldn’t talk. Despite calling ahead to request sparkler fir my friend’s birthday dessert and mentioning to our waiter 2 times it was her birthday- they forgot the sparkler. This is normally one of my favorite lunch spots in Dallas, but I won’t be returning on the weekend.

I enjoyed Le Bilboquet so much! I really like French food, and the atmosphere here was simply divine. I ordered the escargot, duck confit a l'orange and my fiancée ordered the cajun chicken. We loved our dishes so much, everything was so flavorful. We had a dark & stormy and a sidecar to drink, and they were both so good. We loved our dining experience and we'll be back very soon.

We love this place! Food is fantastic and I strongly recommend the Bouillabaisse. I’m not a huge seafood fan but it is my favorite dish there. My husband had the pork chop and it was so good. The Super Tuscan red wine was perfect. Love love love this place

Had an interesting experience here and contrasted quite a bit w Valentine’s Day 2020, which was spectacular.
Service was initially friendly (in spite of the fact that we were brought ketchup in lieu of butter for our French bread...???). Our server who closed us out was stiff and unfriendly- maybe having a bad night. But when you’re the customer it can feel personal.

Food was fine- solid and nicely but not beautifully presented. Straight up lemon butter with no added unique touches. The best was the bread (not house made, we were informed), and the chocolate mousse. The butter is much better down the street at Toulouse..

We indicated that it was our anniversary but strangely at no point that night (except when we again mentioned it on checking in) did anyone acknowledge this. We’ve been married long enough to take this in stride but sometimes what makes a good restaurant great is the little touches. Like just saying Happy Anniversary. No additional fuss required.

The whole experience just lacked a bit of flare that would’ve been nice. If we go back it’ll be with fewer expectations and for a purely casual, non special-occasion dining experience.
