Recommended by the Hilton Highland Park front desk agent, and it was a great choice for a casual business dinner. Wait staff was very attentive.

My wife selected based on a recommendation from a friend. We were attending the DSO Gala and wanted someplace to east prior, so this was the place. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, and the food sublime. The waitress was accessible but not hovering, but always there when we needed her. We were dressed up, and most people were at least business attire, so this is probably not shorts and tee shirt place.
We will definitely return with my son and his wife.

We've reviewed this wonderful restaurant numerous times, so to write another review is just to emphasize the consistency of the food and the service which is very good to superb (depending on who is waiting) but always a stellar effort. Go often and you will be accpeted as family. Friendliest staff in the city. Period. We love it here.

First time dining here and had a wonderful dining experience. The lamb meatball appetizer was delicious as was the flounder special. The flounder was some of the best I have had. We will definitely be back. The server was also quite personable and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our bistro salad, charred octopus appetizer, and fish dishes, as well as the conscientiously kind and personal service of our excellent waiter. This is the kind of upscale bistro we think DALLAS is short on. Bistro 31 seems to really know what its niche and mission are, and it accomplishes both with grace and ease.

This place is solid: food is always good and the service outstanding. Lombardi knows his business and keep Bistro always fresh and pleasant. The upstairs bar is great - although I ordered a glass of Veuve and it came way warmer than it should besides being flat. They brought a new glass that was still not at the right temperature... but the server was kind and attemptive. Good option for a friends get together.

We all enjoyed our meals during restaurant week. Service OK overall but a bit spotty on this busy Friday night. The host did not immediately greet us upon walking in, resulting in a bit of awkward standing around. One of us (table of 4) was missed on a couple of different service items, resulting in a wait. Bread for the table did not arrive until after the first course, and after our drink orders were promptly taken and served, it was a long time before our server returned to take our food order. Overall it’s a pleasant though cramped dining area and no complaints about any of our food. The olive oil cake and perfectly cooked halibut were standouts.

Noisier than usual at lunch, but we were in the booth for two immediately on the left as you enter the add on area. That made talking somewhat better. Unfortunately, the air conditioning gadget immediately above my seat, dripped on me during lunch. Unexpected and understandable, but ought to be looked at. Another customer might be irritated.

My wife and I had brunch there. I had the seafood risotto. It was a little expensive but worth it. The service was friendly and professional. Food came out promptly. The atmosphere with large arched windows looking our at tree covered Highland Park Village can't be beat. We have been going to Bistro for years and will continue to go from many more.

BISTRO 31 is the place for a special event and also for a quick bite. The atmosphere and service are outstanding! It's a great night spot to have a wonderful dinner and then go to the lounge for music and drinks, all in one spot.
