Bistro 31 is fantastic! My daughter and I came on a weekday morning, and we both had crepes with ham and gruyére cheese, topped with an egg and served with a fresh salad. Plus fresh bread just out of the oven! Everything was fresh and delicious. Our server was wonderful and the whole experience was top notch. This restaurant will always be on the top of our list every time we come to Dallas!

It is a little pricey but the service and noise level adds to the value. For example, I would never pay $65 for Dover Sole.

Simply put, Bistro 31 is one of our very favorite places for dining, in Dallas. Reception at the front door is warm and personable -- which is a big plus, these days. Cocktails, perfect. Food and service always top notch. We're "regulars" at the Bistro.

Absolute best service. We went for a special occasion and they certainly made it special. Have a drink in the third floor bar area (where they also serve great sushi BTW). Then have dinner in dining room. It's great...

Awesome early Sunday dinner at Bistro 31. Love the atmosphere of an intimate bistro. Outstanding service by our knowledgable and entertaining server Stephen. His recommendations were flawless – from the wine to the pasta and main course selections. We loved every bite of the Bistro salad, the pumpkin pasta and the Branzino. Creme Brûlée with raspberries completed the perfect meal. The manager Michael was warm and engaging. Can't wait to return... Highly recommend!

Dinner with another couple. Excellent Server, Excellent Halibut and Salmon. Exquisite Creme Brûlée. One of the finest meals we have had in DFW. The only shortfall was the noise needs to be tamed. Add done sound ballasts on ceiling ti help. This is a foodie gem.

This is a wonderful place for lunch! Our family gathered for Christmas Eve lunch, everyone ordered something different, and we all enjoyed every bite! The Caesar salad and the Bistro burger were the best!
We sat outside on the patio and had the best waiter! He was so attentive ! We will be back!

we chose what turned out to be a very loud and frenzied time. Our server was great, but as with all the staff and service, there seemed to be an aura of tension and anxiety.
I would choose a different day and time if we went again.
Our dishes were prepared and presented nicely.
The valet is terrific. I recommend them highly.

Bistro 31 is a restaurant my husband and I go to frequently. We are warmly greeted at the door. We have requested specific seating and are quickly taken to our preferred spot. I have tried several dishes over time and have not been disappointed with any of them. The quality is excellent. We will continue to enjoy this restaurant as often as we can.

We hadn’t seen these friends for several years and probably overstayed the expected time for use of our table. Nevertheless, we were never rushed — somewhat rare in today’s frenetic times. The courtesy was much appreciated.

I love the restaurant and return regularly. I was there with a large party and the server couldn't keep up. We had to repeatedly ask for bread and apps that were never served. When he was on the ball, he was super nice and did his job well. The table just needed more assistance for 10 people. I'll still go back, but with a smaller party.

Always a delightful time at Bistro 31. Our server Ken was quick with answers and suggestions, as usual. He accomplishes attentive without being disruptive, which is surprisingly rare-but this kind of service is why we return often.
