Great time at Origin (per usual). We are doing Whole30 and our waitress, Sarah was able to make some great recommendations that fit our needs. Thanks for always providing great quality clean food.

All I can say is flies flies flies —really unappetizing. We sat in doors. Whole time we were swatting flies . Whole restaurant could use a deep clean . Food was decent but honestly in those conditions I just wanted to get out of there. Won’t go again

Origin is our go to place when we are in Dallas. The food is amazing. We do appreciate the detail in quality and allergen free. Even though we only make it over there a few times a year, your amazing staff always recognizes us from out previous stays. We had our favorite waitress, Sarah. She is so precious and fun and her service is the best. Can’t wait for our next dinner!

Excellent food with menu very adaptable to all eating styles. Noisy and service and kitchen were slow. Some food arrived cold. Server kept saying kitchen was backed up but he would go behind the bar and drink coffee and be on his phone so not sure where the problem was. The food was excellent though!

Went there for my Wife’s birthday. From start to finish the experience was amazing. My wife is Celiac so having a menu that had chicken fried chicken and other traditionally gluten filled dishes was a real treat. Everything tasted fresh and homemade. You can tell they really use prime ingredients.

Ever since Covid restaurants are noticeably hurting. Wait staff is fewer so the experiences can be slower or take longer than pre covid days. This was not true at Origin. The staff was very attentive and they showed a real passion. I could tell they were busy and dealing with the mentioned problems, however they went above and beyond giving us excellent attention and were great about refills , beers, etc. they made us feel like we were their only table.

The best part was the dessert, the cookie trifecta was delicious and I can honestly say it was one of the best cookies I have ever had. Thanks for a wonderful experience will definitely be coming back.

The food was pretty good but the service was poor. My reservation was at 2:30 (made online) but I learned when I arrived that they close at 3pm. We were rushed out, our waiter was not attentive and just don’t have the most positive energy.

Horrible service all around. We counted 4 different people took our order and brought us food. Could not tell who was our actual server. Appetizer took near 20-30 mins to come out. Everything else was slow after. It’s not even that big of a restaurant. Don’t think we will be going back. It’s a shame as they used to be on top of it and provided excellent service. Hope they get their act together.

So, if you really understand food and ingredients then you will love this restaurant. Whether you are paleo, keto, gluten free or just plain healthy, this place will work for you. My family is gluten and dairy free but healthy beyond that and this is one of the few restaurants in Dallas that can really take good care of us. It has the potential to turn into a favorite. I'm still trying out the items on the menu but so far the cashew queso is my fave.

First time trying this restaurant in Knox Henderson area. The humus starter with chips and veggies was terrific. For our entre we had the hanger steak and short rib. Both were cooked just right. Serveral beers in draft to choose from make it a perfect way to enjoy your dinner.

The food and service is great. The problem is everything is way overpriced and there's an upgrade charge for everything. I mean c'mon $2.50 for avocado oil is beyond nuts.

I celebrated my 35th birthday here and Chris and his staff made sure my guest and I had a night to remember. I loved the fact that it was small and intimate with COVID numbers ramping back it up. We felt completely safe and relaxed. The food and drinks were excellent. Especially the lemon drop martini! They allowed us to celebrate wholeheartedly, even let us pick the music being played!!! Great experience.

As always, the food was very good, predictable would be a word I'd use.
There are some staples on the menu that should be offered more frequently throughout the day, the calamari and spinach salad is apparently only a dinner item?
I'm not huge on "clean foods" and by offering so much of this it feels as if there are fewer options. For instance, a good mayonnaise would be nice, let the diner decide on that option.
We absolutely love the staff members and are always treated exceptionally well. Here's hoping we can get past Covid and develop a deeper option of menu items.

Bottom line, we love you guys, will always support you and most definitely will recommend you!

A hidden gem that's a small step up from a whole in the wall. Running down one wall, they have an exposed kitchen grill and good sized bar with a large selection. The opposite wall has booths, and between those two things, tables. Decor is simple, as is the current fashion. We went on a Wednesday evening which was relatively quiet. I can imagine it could get quite loud on weekend nights.

Customers apparently don't have just one server at Origin Kitchen... it's a shared effort across all the staff: I think a total of six different people waited on us throughout the visit. As a result, service was pretty quick, as was food delivery.

Food presentation was excellent. Wife unit had the walnut crusted Halibut special with veggies, which she really enjoyed. I had nachos with short rib meat which was good as well. Minor complaint was that a number of the the malanga chips it comes with (which I really liked) got very soggy from the short rib juice.

We'll be back to try some of their other dishes.
