Usually the food is outstanding! Wilted salad and the pasta was boring. Disappointed this visit. Great service as usual.

We enjoyed a well-timed and prepared dinner consisting of fresh oysters on the half shell accompanied by a fantastic wasabi mignonette, traditional style escargot, amazing lamb balls and a perfectly cooked halibut special entree on a bed of spinach and carrots. We split the olive oil cake and two glasses of Moet to celebrate a special occasion. Jay was our server and he did an excellent job.

I really like the multi-level design of the restaurant with bar food and service on the upper patio floors. Its a bit noisy upstairs but the service and cocktails make up for it. If Quinn is working, she is the go-to girl to see, especially on a busy night. She makes time for her customers. The restaurant itself was toned down and very casual, although equally busy throughout the dinner service. Great menu with something for everyone.

My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Our server was attentive. The ambiance is lovely and both of our meals were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, we both agreed that the price was not at all commensurate with the portions we were served.

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. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Service was amazing! The staff was friendly, attentive, and professional. The prawns were yummy but the roasted Brussel sprouts were more like steamed Brussels sprouts. I was hoping for more of a crispy crunch roasted. The flavor was decent but nothing special. Will definitely go again though to try entrees and appetizers.

My daughter flew in to Love Field and we went for a late lunch. We ate in slow courses and the timing of each course was perfect. Our waiter did not bother us with comment or questions except to fill our glasses (tea was replaced automatically).
The food was wonderful except for the oysters Rockefeller which were a little bland. The oysters were not salty enough to support the sauce.
That being said, the salad, entrees and espresso were super!

My experience was awesome. The good was great. Service was dynamic. Ivan our server was phenomenal and very charismatic. He knew the menu and what you suggest based on our taste what we were looking for. He constantly checked on us and serviced our table. The manager came by several times to check on the table and made us feel very welcomed. It was a dynamic time. The chicken and side shrimp were seasoned well and juicy. I loved the Chanel cocktail. Superb restaurant. I will be back. Thank You for your great customer service.

This has historically been one of our favorite places to dine. The last few times, though, I feel the food and service haven't been up to their usual standards. For starters, I absolutely HATE sitting in the back room. It's ugly and the tables are too close together so people are constantly hitting the back of your chair. PLEASE do something to make that section more pleasant. We had reservations so it wasn't like we just walked in. There were plenty of open tables in the main part of the restaurant so perhaps we didn't look wealthy or attractive enough to sit in that section.

The food was really sub par this time. Two of us had the branzino. It was cooked fine, but it seemed dry. It needed a sauce or something. The pepper, tomato, and olives that accompanied it were tasty, but it wasn't a cohesive dish. Husband had the steak frites. It wasn't cooked as he requested and certainly didn't look like a prime cut of new york strip. His margarita wasn't very good either.

It will be a while before we return again...
