Food was outstanding. Several had the halibut which was delicious. Service was very good as always. Bistro 31 is one of my go to restaurants because I can always count on great food and service. Menu is varied which makes it a good place to entertain.

Every dish that we selected was delicious. Very nice wine selections, both by the glass and whole bottles. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. It was a little loud from the bar directly above us. Love this restaurant!

Steven was an awesome server! He made us feel welcome and added to our great experience. I can’t imagine coming back to Dallas and not eating at Bistro 31.

The food was great but we were put in the corner by the bathrooms under a distracting huge tv. This dinner was for Valentine’s Day and we were expecting a nice dinner for a chance to chat and enjoy each others company. Sadly the music and people around us were so loud we couldn’t hear each other.

Not impressed.

The salmon latkes topped with caviar were amazing, as well as the Dover Sole! Service was outstanding- a fabulous evening overall!

Atmosphere was lovely and the wait staff was friendly and was on it.

Food was mediocre- definitely have had much better brunch food and mimosas elsewhere in Dallas for cheaper or the same price.

I went upstairs vs downstairs as it was my first time and didn't know where to go. The host didn't seem to know or care if we had reservations so he just seated upstairs vs asking me if wanted to go downstairs. The upstairs is less formal, more casual and load (music and people). The food was great and the service just okay. The server brought the lobster bisque with the other dishes, and the soup was not hot enough, I sent it back to reheat. We had very tiramisu with a candle for my sister's bday, then took quite a long time to get the bill. I'd give food a 4-5, service 3.5, and hostess at entry a 3 for not sitting us is the right location.

Great food and service but everyone crammed into tight space and noise level soooo high with conversations elevated most of the time, unable to carry on conversation across the table in a polite way.

I came here for my boyfriend’s birthday. The only thing that upset me is that there was no acknowledgement that it was for a birthday. I had to have the waiter tell the hostess to read the notes on the reservation. And then they failed to tell me what I had ordered was going to cost 42 dollars! I just wanted gluten free pasta, marinara and some light veggies and fish. Nothing too crazy and my meal was the most expensive thing on the entire bill. Server was AMAZING.

In addition to the amazing food and ambience, what makes Bistro 31 a truly exceptional eatery is the service. General Manager Michael always ensures that his guests are treated with the utmost respect and he always makes sure that his guests have a wholly satisfying experience. During our most recent visit, we had the great pleasure of having Leslie as our server. To say that she was outstanding is an understatement! Leslie took care of us from the moment we were seated until we left more than 3 hours and two bottles of Prosecco later. It is a rare thing indeed for a restaurant to have the trifecta of SUPERB food, ambience, and service. Bistro 31 can boast of accomplishing all three and that is why this eatery is my number one choice for dining in Dallas.

Put in back forty even though tables in front were never occupied before and after we left. Indifferent service and we have been there many times. Noise from Lounge upstairs is very distracting

While the food was good, it was not exceptional. The restaurant was packed with tables relatively close together. Ergo, it was a bit noisy. The font on the menu should be larger or the lighting brighter.

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!
