An unbelievable treat! This is an excellent find. The food is outstanding, the people even more so. Don’t be fooled if you’ve tried clean cooking before and found it lacking - the food is delicious and stands out against anything you would compare it to. Also a great bar and wine selection.

Easter brunch on the patio did NOT disappoint! Omelets, Chicken & Waffles, coffee and bottomless iced teas with amazing service. It's our first restaurant visit in more than a year - thanks for making it GREAT.

It’s a really cute restaurant and I love that they allow for tons of modifications! The service was great! The food is delicious, but kind of on the higher end for a casual dining spot. However, we would still go back to try their brunch menu!

The service alone would make me want to revisit,everyone was so inviting and the food was outstanding. Myself
and my party I all had salads, the Thai Salmon, The Regular and The Chicken Avocado all were beyond expectations. I plan on visiting again

Great staff, but very slow service. Grass fed burger and shrimp and cauliflower grits were top notch. Brussels and artichoke appetizer was very bland and not recommended.

I absolutely love Origin. As a gluten free girl, the food at this place is heaven. The ambiance is great with fantastic indoor and outdoor seating. It’s also so nice that they have a parking lot right in front so unlike a lot of other Dallas restaurants, parking is no issue here.

Here’s the issue. The service at this place is fantastic WHEN YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET SERVICE. Y’all have got to hire some more staff!! I have come here for brunch twice and dinner twice and both times it has taken a ridiculous amount of time to get service. I don’t mind waiting for a table. That’s not the issue. The issue is once you do finally get seated, it takes forever just to even get a simple drink order placed. You have to flag someone down every time you need anything. After you do finally order food or a drink, it takes an abnormally long amount of time to get what you ordered. The first couple of times I thought they must just be having an off day, but no, this is literally every single time I go to this restaurant.

If you want not only food allergy friendly food, but delicious food in a great setting come here, but definitely be prepared to wait and wait and wait every step of the way.

Special daddy / daughter date where the girls were able to enjoy some pancakes and hash bowls! Always great service

The staff always takes great care of us, but when it comes to our kids they go above and beyond!

As always, the food was delicious and never have to alter the menu to meet our food restrictions.

I did not expect this restaurant to be opened at 100% capacity, so to my surprise when I came from brunch, it was very crowded. If you’re worried about that, be mindful. I probably won’t come here again until later in the year.

When the kids end up with the grandparents - the parents end up at Origin!

This is our home away from home, amazing food that meets our health restrictions without asking for 10 different modifications. On top of that, the whole staff knows and appreciates great food and service.

Highly recommend anyone in the area to stop by! And if you are visiting DFW looking for a paleo, primal, vegan, or just friendly to being health conscience... this is worth it!

Absolutely delicious. I love going to Origin Kitchen because I know that every single item offered is top quality! They will go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. The staff and owners couldn't be nicer. It is incredibly great to be able to eat at a restaurant that values kindness, quality and flavor.

If you are eating clean or on a special diet (and even if you're not and just like good food!), Origin is the place to go. I am on a highly restrictive elimination diet and this restaurant came through with so many delicious options for me from the Siete tortillas in the breakfast tacos to a delicious kombucha to drink. My husband had the Thai salmon which surprised him with how spicy and authentic it was. The menu is diverse and the staff is friendly. Will definitely be back!

The restaurant was very clean. Had a reservation on a Friday evening and my husband and I were greeted at the door immediately and seated right away.

The staff was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable of the menu and showed compassion for people who had food sensitivities. I did not feel like I had to apologize for not being able to eat certain foods or grains—I was very comfortable ordering food here.

The food quality is great; everything was in season and not over cooked and seasoned perfectly. I ordered the hanger steak entree and my husband ordered the fried steak (off menu special that night), and nothing was greasy in either of our dishes and his fried steak was perfectly breaded lightly and it was crunchy and delicious. The sweet potato mash was yummy and the vegetables were fresh and cooked just right.

My only gripe, which is probably extremely rare is that I wish they had a dessert that was grain free, nut/seed free and chocolate free. I’m on a restricted diet and wished I could’ve tried something sweet!

My wife and I have been very strictly keto since the beginning of the year and it’s made it tough to find date night spots. BOY, were we excited to find Origin Kitchen + Bar! So many amazing keto food AND cocktail options! The servers and bartender are extremely knowledgeable and never make you feel weird or bad for asking questions about the fare to make sure it’s okay for your diet. We initially went there for brunch but ended up going back for dinner another night. Both sides of the menu are delicious! Special props for Christian the bartender who changed up cocktail ingredients to make them even more keto-friendly for us. We’re not the sort to have a regular spot, as we like to hop around and see all the variety Dallas has to offer, but we might have to make an exception for this one. 10 out of 10!

We had planned to take the girls for a “burger and fries”, but turned out to be a celebratory meal with the grandparents. Our oldest always gets the hash bowl but wanted to try the burger - she had nothing left over and loved it!
