The sole Milanese was mushy not flaky. All else was good.
I took my partner for her birthday. The staff made sure to wish her a happy birthday on arrival and as we were leaving. They also sat us by the fish tank which I believe is to be their best table. We shared mussels and clam chowder as appetizers. They were reasonably good but nothing special. I had crab and freshly made pasta. It was superb. My partner had the steak and frites. The steak was perfectly cooked and the frites were delicious. I do not necessarily think it was an overly great piece of meat but the quality of cooking and seasoning was fantastic. I would return and recommend this restaurant to others.
Incredibly FANTASTIC delicious seafood, and the wait staff, to a one, is five star. Go there. Ran and Jan.
Food and service are always excellent. Atmosphere is well done in tradition of Seattle seafood restaurants....upscale casual.
Fantastic meal in great ambiance
Service is alw
Montlake Cut is a true gem in Preston Center. It is upscale and super high quality seafood dining, but in a slightly casual atmosphere. They take great pride in the quality of their seafood, and it shows in their market menu where the dishes (fish, pasta, etc.) change based on what is fresh. Montlake Cut is on my top 3 list, and everyone should try it.
Montlake Cut is my wife and I's favorite restaurant in Dallas. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Great food. The drunken Dutch mussels were awesome.
We've been going to Montlake since it opened and dine there fairly regularly. It is one of our go-to spots in Dallas. Not only is the food uniformly excellent, but the staff is well-informed and spot-on in their service. Good service paired with good food? It's a no brainer. Eat here.
The food was excellent, waiter was only B+. I liked the ambience. The restaurant was empty at lunch, probably due to high prices, but I thought it was fairly priced. A definite place to revisit. In fact, I have made a dinner reservation for tonight to see what the experience is.
excellent food and service. always bring guests from out of town for great dining.
One of my favorite places in town. Excellent seafoood and service.
Friendly, cozy place. Seafood is spectacular! Great for a special date.
Our "Farewell Dallas" dinner. After 5 years in the Dallas area, relocating to Great Lakes. Going to miss Montlake Cut!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The oysters are delicious. The wedge salad with Thousand Island dressing is very tasty. The fish specials are always fresh and spot on. I also like the low key ambiance with the Seattle knick knacks scattered throughout.
We were kept waiting almost 45 minutes for our reservation. Hostess kept telling us table we were waiting on had paid and would be leaving soon. Not the case. Would have appreciated more transparency so that we had the option to leave and go elsewhere. Manager did get us each a glass of wine but did not reappear for the rest of the evening.
Delicious! Highly recommend for seafood lovers. The oysters were a bit over priced but everything was top notch!
Solidly good restaurant; a tad bit expensive for an everyday meal- $35-42 an entree only for daily specials; delicious food and great service
We’ve dined here for years because of the food, vibe and overall quality of service. Our most recent visit was disturbingly mediocre. Hackneyed food preparation coupled with amateurish service made for a lackluster $600 dollar birthday dinner. I can no longer recommend Montlake Cut without reservations.
Great food great time loved it!! The sole was over the top!
Good food and great service.
We were not rushed and the waiter was very knowledgeable.
How many times can I review this great place? It is always fabulous and fun.
Overall, an excellent experience
Great food! Fun night! We enjoyed our experience!
Best seafood experience this side of Seattle! Go there and enjoy! Ran and Jan.
Love the food and service. We always have a great time. Love the option for. Mallee portions at lunch.
Excellent food & attentive service. A little loud at times, but not overwhelmingly so.
Excellent experience overall. The Branzino was absolutely the best I have eaten in Dallas - delicious. The Halibut (fish and chips) was dry according the two dining party members who ordered it. The Lemon Sole was very good. Service was affable, unobtrusive and very informative.
Loved the bar, especially the bar stools, which made the entire experience feel very welcoming.
My fish and chips were terrible. Over cooked and tasteless.
Food was excellent
Food was amazing! The salmon spaghetti is something I would never think to order and it was incredible. Soft shell crab entree was also stellar. Waiter was excellent. However, our reservation was for 8:30 pm and we waited 1 hr 15 min to be seated at our table! We were eating dinner at 10:30 pm. We were then the last people in the restaurant and it felt awkward and rushed.
Food was delicious - interesting and very fresh. Our waiter, Mervin, was the best! He took great care of us and made sure everything was perfect. He was one of the reasons I gave the restaurant 5 stars.
Always great - the ambiance is excellent and food is fresh. Small restaurant and I would not go there without a reservation!
I was pleasantly surprised. At first, walking in, I was expecting it to be a bit larger but it’s more quaint. Went there as a girls night during the week and we appreciated that we were able to have good conversation without having to scream to one another. The food was exquisite. We order a few starters, entree, and dessert., none of which disappointed. Definitely will be returning in near future.
Great food and great service, feels like you have been transported to the Pacific Northwest with very fitting decor! Joe was a great and attentive server to my wife and I. Oysters, wedge salad, branzino and crab fried rice were excellent. Would definitely go back again.
Always a wonderful meal, friendly and informative wait staff. Paired our entrees with perfect wines.
Excellent, small restaurant. Green salad with the herb buttermilk dressing is fresh and delectable. Fav is the branzino. Outstanding as always. Nice affordable wine list. Staff remembers you on your return visit. Oh and their French 75 is excellent.
I was so sad with the experience we had tonight...especially b/c we were celebrating a birthday AND b/c we had had a really nice experience during our last visit. Basically we didn’t receive our entree’s until ~ 1.25 hours after we sat down. It was ironic that as soon as we called attention to the slowness was our meal deliver d immediately. Just not a great birthday experience at all!!
