Food was good but staff was very pretentious. Would not substitute anything or make the main dish anything different than what it was. When asking the waiter if we could change he didn’t even respond. Just shook his head which was odd. I wouldn’t go back.

Simply wonderful experience all the way around. Julia, the Manager, made sure everything was as it should be. Our server, Debbie, was superb and quite knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The Branzino, Halibut and Salmon were all perfectly prepared. You cannot beat this place for a wonderful seafood experience. Plus, the decor is perfect for Summer as it is bright, light and cheerful. Can't say enough nice things about my favorite seafood restaurant in Dallas!

We had a wonderful meal with literally every course deemed delicious. The hamachi appetizer & king crab fried rice were especially good. We also enjoyed the Milanese fish preparation which was piping hot, perfectly seasoned, and cooked to perfection. Our server was lovely and the drinks were wonderful. Can't wait to come back!

This place is great. Great customer service and the food is amazing. Our server Jeri was excellent. We were attending an event after dinner so we were on a schedule and she made sure we were on task. Food was delivered hot and timely even though we had appetizers and beverages. She completed everything and we didn’t feel like we were being rushed. It was great to see all of the employees that we knew from another concept that was sadly closed. Nick’s restaurants are great!!

Montlake Cut NEVER disappoints. The ingredients are always top tier, service excellent and we can always find an excellent wine to pair with the food. This is one of the finest seafood experiences to be had in the DFW area.

Amazing food and atmosphere in such a small space. In which the small space is the only draw back. If you do not go early the space is full and it is hard to move around. Would love to see it tripled in size.

The food was salty and nothing special. The wait staff did not control the extreme noise level of the adjacent table. We live in the neighborhood and this experience is exactly the same as the last time we dined here. Will not return.

Food at Montlake is the big attraction. The bar service is excellent. Food variety very good and always prepared exactly right. We really like Montlake. Only downside is the tables are very close together so there's no shortage of bumping and noise. It's just what you put up with to enjoy the really nice seafood.
