Michael runs a great operation. All of the employees we're generally happy to be there, we also had the opportunity to meet chef David (terrific guy), and be served by Alexander who was extremely professional.

We will make this place a regular occasion.

Food was very basic and nothing that made me say wow. The $17 mimosa cocktail was overpriced. Excellent service but the price doesn't match the food quality. My omelette barely had any chorizo in it and the onions weren't cooked.

I felt our server really tried to drive the bill up. He made great suggestions, but was pushing the beverages strongly. We also ordered to fish that were listed as market price and they ended up 90 per person and he did not mention the price. All other entrees are in the $40/range so we were surprised with the bill. We assumed they’d be a similar price point.

First up, the food was outstanding! And it was beautifully presented, albeit the portions were on the small side I thought. The restaurant visually is extremely pleasant. You know you’re in a classy place when you enter. BUT, I have to address the noise level. With the crowds this restaurant brings in, it was very difficult to hear our table conversation. This put a damper on a very enjoyable Wednesday evening with friends.

The vibe is nice, lots of good people watching but the food was just fine. Nothing bad but nothing to write home about. The frites were soggy on arrival, still warm etc so not really anything to complain about. The pasta dish lacked seasoning. The desserts and cocktails were excellent and our server was great. So overall a pleasant Sunday brunch but would not put in the must return category. I had higher hopes which probably resulted in me feeling more disappointed than had I managed my expectations

The staff and service at Bistro 31 was amazing! They are very attentive and friendly, making it a great experience for everyone in my party. As for the menu, the cocktails were great and strong, which we loved for our booze brunch. Unfortunately, I felt that the food was just average and nothing exciting that I would go back for.

Our server, Blair, made our lunch experience even better! She was so nice, fun & had great recommendations for menu... even gave us an "off menu" cocktail to try based on our previous order. She was fantastic! Everything we ordered was great. Due to weather, we sat in the enclosed patio, which not ideal - but it was better than sitting out in the rain!

They treated our puppy like a queen. Brought us a mat for her to lay on, a water bowl, and gave her plenty of attention! Incredible customer service!

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. Michael as the general manager, and Stephan as a professional waiter, are both exceptional. I highly recomend this restaurant.

We love Bistro 31 and have been several times for their good food and great location, but today was absolutely unbearable. On a hot day (yes we know Dallas is hot!) it was sweltering inside. We were literally dripping with sweat and very uncomfortable. When I asked if the AC was broken their reply was, “you must not be from Texas.” Excuse me, if you are from TX you know that you need a good AC. And what kind of response is that? Our friends who are from here were more miserable than we were.

Worst dining experience in ages as we were really suffering with the heat indoors, which also brought a lot of flies on top of it all. $200 for a table of 4 with only one appetizer and with another appetizer as a main course.

Bistro 31 provided a nice evening out with friends. The food and service were solid if not exceptional. My only complaint was a forgotten appetizer which might have made the difference between leaving satisfied and going home for a snack. Regardless, we'll be back.

Michael Bratcher is one of the best General Managers in the USA. I highly recomend this restaurant.
