From the moment we sat down we felt rushed. It was a Saturday date night with my husband and we were looking forward to a fun evening trying a new restaurant. We ordered the meat and cheese board, which was a big disappointment. There was more fruit and dried fruit (who wants dried apricots) than there was meat and cheese. It was not very good quality meat as well. We then decided to order the lobster crab cakes, those were delicious. However because we felt so rushed by the server we decided to go elsewhere. My husband works a lot and we did not want to feel like the server was annoyed by the amount of time we were there. I am not sure if I would try this establishment again.

We came here to watch the Sugar Bowl and it was great - they played the game over the speakers so it was awesome to be able to hear while watching - and the food/atmosphere is great. Recommend for lots of occasions - brunch, dinner before going out, watching sports, going out - I've even had a book club meeting here over brunch. I'm a frequent visitor and will continue to return!

The worse level of noise level is " energetic?! No, the worst level possible was cacophony. Deadly . Ridiculous. There is no need for people to shout in a restaurant. Walked in, checked in, looked at the table, excused ourselves, said thank you to the hostess, and left. Not to go back again unless it is an off time.

Burgers were delicious!!! Brussel Sprouts and Egg Rolls were tasty and I’d definitely order again. Service was really good, our waiter was very attentive. Lighting was pretty dim, so we had to use our cell phone lights to see the menu. I’d definitely go back again.

First time there and I wasn’t impressed. Only thing good was the cocktail I ordered.
In Our section there were so many knats flying around our food so that didn’t help.

We had not been to Chelses Corner in years and boy has it changed for the better. We sat in the Garden Room which was bright and quiet. Our service was prompt and professional. We had the Mimosas, entire bottle of champagne with oj on the side (Cranberry or Pineapple juice if you prefer). We split the Beignets with Lemon Curd which were still warm and delicious. My husband had the Lobster and Crab Cakes Hollandaise and loved it. I had the Farmers Breakfast and it was perfectly prepared. We thought the entire meal was terrific. We look forward to going back soon!

The food is great. The beignets are to die for!! Only down side was that we went for brunch and it definitely smelled like a bar. The staff was attentive and the food was served in a timely manner. I have already recommended this restaurant to a few friends that live in the area.

We were a table of two relatively early on a Sunday morning with a limited number of other patrons in the restaurant. We were seated at a table by the swinging doors to the kitchen, even though there were many other open tables.

There were a number of waitstaff in the restaurant, but not one, including our waiter, stopped by to check to see if we wanted more coffee, if our meals were to our satisfaction (which they were), or to provide silverware since ours had been removed with our starter.


The food was very tasty, but the service was lackluster at best.

Don’t come here. There are other places in Dallas that are just as cute, but have better service and better quality food. If you literally have been everywhere else and want to try somewhere else, then yes come. But otherwise save your time.

Food is always great and they have a good drink menu. We sat on the patio which would have been great except for the screeching chairs— when anyone moved them, they scraped on the floor loudly. The acoustics in that space is was not great. Otherwise, we brought friend who had never been there and they enjoyed it!

We were there for brunch on Father’s Day. The food was excellent. Our server seemed a bit inexperienced and didn’t have some of the nuances down about basic table service, but she was very friendly and responsive. Roving management guys seemed to step in and pick up the slack on occasion, which was nice. Brunch menu is a hit... can’t wait to go back and try other things. Overall, a great experience for all of us, spanning in age from 13 to 81!

Came for brunch and was largely disappointed. Made a reservation and we were seated in the dark bar in the back, while there was plenty of open seats near the sunny patio. Waiter took 20 min to tell us a drink that was ordered wouldnt be coming out, only after we asked him about it. Waffles were soggy and chicken didn’t come with gravy.

This is a great location with a fun vibe. we have eaten there several times and they have a great wine list. the turkey burger was one of the specials and was excellent. The veggie burger was not very good. there was a crust on the outside which was not very attractive and the filling was not hot. the guacamole that came with the veggie burger was excellent and the fries are awesome.

It was ok. My thoughts when I looked at the brunch menu was "there's nothing special". However, the dinner menu might be amazing, I may never find out. That said if you just want to eat good, decently priced food, check it out. Our waiter was distracted by the table next to ours so we had to get other workers attention to get condiments (had to ask multiple times before getting it). The décor was nice but as far as I'm concerned I can say "been there" ...don't know that I will be back.
