The food was outstanding, as was the presentation. Our server, Stephanie, was excellent -- very attentive (but not too much), helpful with suggestions, great sense of humor. The whole experience was great, although pricey. It was a special occasion for us, though, so well worth it.

Food was just not up to par at this location, uptown is better. Way Too much bacon bits on a yellow and wilted iceberg wedge. Wines were just ok, steak was great but the blue cheese and mushrooms were overwhelming, don’t hide my steak under these toppings. Way too much I expected a little got a side dish on top of both.... a loud table came in and ruined the atmosphere for everyone!

I took my family for Mother’s Day. I was so embarrassed. They did not indicate on open table that it was a buffet style lunch beforehand. Which I have never experienced there but have been to the restaurant several times before. The hostess forgot to seat us and did not explain it was a buffet. It took us 20 minutes to get water and we got it only after I got up and found someone. When the waiter finally poured us water we were still was not welcomed or told how the buffet works, but at that point we had figured it out. The buffet was picked over. They had activities for children which was great for my daughter but made lunch hard on the adults and made the whole thing crazy. I will not go back for a special occasion. I can only hope on a non holiday that the wait staff is better.

The food was good, service was very good, and it's a nice restaurant. However $60 for a the kind of food at this buffet is way overpriced. I would have expected it to be a $30 price for this.

Normally I don’t write reviews but this was our 2nd Mother’s Day brunch here and I must say the food was sub par when compared to last year. We were there when they opened so we expected warm/hot food however it was cold/lukewarm at best. We let them know and they did turn the burners up but for nearly $200 for 3 people we expected a better quality food. I will say the food tasted fresh but who wants to eat cold mashed potatoes and French toast? Service was outstanding however. It will be a hard decision on whether we return again next year or try another restaurant.

The waiter was not the best but as soon as management saw what was going on they stepped up and took over and helped our party of 14 out. Very impressed with management. Very good food and great birthday desserts ! Great drinks too!

Easter Brunch ... has to be one of the best in Dallas. Entertaining for kids with Bunny, Face Painters, balloon artists etc. Food was good for a buffett with cold seafood bar and sushi bar. We would go back for sure:

I made the reservation for our family 2 months ago for their special Easter Brunch and was excited as we had gone their before for their special event brunches at Mother’s Day. We have 4 children and the reason we go is because they cater to children on these special days (balloon artists, face painting, ice cream Sundae bars) so the parents can actually relax with a Mimosa or cocktail. But is was anything but relaxing as we waited for 40 minutes past our reservation time and a table for 6 finally opened up - only to be usurped by a party who arrived after us. The hostess - Millennials who Universally don’t know the first thing about service - could have cared less that we were rightfully upset.

The food, incidentally, has gone way downhill. The spicy tuna sushi was hard in the center, the capers for the salmon were mush and the salmon was cut way too thick for carpaccio and the food stations were not attended to very well at all.

I normally see lots of Park Cities families at this location for these brunches but see everyone locally got the memo and have abandoned this place. I now see why. We won’t going back.

Very poor service as our waitress was not available and the bar manager had to come to take our initial drink order. Steak was served appropriately (hot) but all the side dishes were warm, at best. Staff consistently bumped are chairs throughout the night and the GM has to serve our dessert with half the ice cream melted. I would have been embarrassed to serve that to a guest in my home!

Given the choice, look elsewhere for good food and service.

This place comes highly recommended! Great atmosphere! Mackey was our Server and did a great job. We were setup in a private room for the birthday party. There is a lot of great things happening while there. Teamwork and table check backs are all in rotation. Our glass never stayed empty. Mackey was pleasant and very knowledgeable of the menu. I will request him next time . He was so outstanding that I am going back tonight just to have a drink and make sure he was tipped above and beyond by the other party guest.
