I searched for a New Years Eve restaurant that would have good food, service and feel upscale but not raucous & loud. Based on reviews that was what we expected. Nothing was horrible but it wasn’t special either.
When we arrived we had to wait at the door for the hostess to seat another party. We had a reservation but she told us “they had a couple of open tables, see one you want?” Odd. And the owner was decanting wine right by the front door. Odd.
There were balloons scattered around & party hats on the tables and a special menu with of course higher prices. Our server was friendly but very busy. The other staff helping her were honestly more professional & accommodating than the actual waitresses. The reviews had raced about service & the owners attention but evidently he was too busy decanting wine.
We both ordered halibut. It was dry especially since the preparation said it was cooked in butter sauce. The vegetable accompaniments weren’t great but there were lots of capers in the sauce. The Oblivion Cake was a rich chocolate mousse cake with a truffle on top & candy crunch. We weren’t impressed.
So we didn’t have a bad experience but it wasn’t great. Two hundred dollars later, we think we could have done better.
Polite quick valet, polite resturant staff
Great decorations, great food
They make really good drinks especially the martini
Best there is for food, service and ambiance—always!!!
Outstanding! It was a fabulous evening! They went over and beyond for our special requests even on such a busy evening as Xmas eve. Thank u!
Wonderful Christmas dinner with family!
I had not been to this restaurant in years and my family decided to go there over the holidays. We were a bit disappointed in everything- from the service to the food to the tired ambiance. The hostess was not warm and friendly. And our waiter was not very good- he rushed us throughout the meal and kept walking off before we could finish placing our drink order and main meal order. The waiters who filled our water were nice and very good. We all ordered something different and two of the main entres- the shrimp and the scallops - were very bland and mediocre. The trout was good. I would not go back there.
Went for birthday celebration, was not disappointed. Amazing food and excellent service. Definitely will return.
Terrific food. Love the salads, filet and trout, warm cabbage salad, desserts. Friendly service - white table cloth nice with neighborhood familiarity.
One of our favorites A true neighborhood restaurant. Cozy, quiet, low lighting, excellent food, very good service. My personal preference is the Caesar salad followed by the veal and a key lime pie.
Excellent food and great service for Sunday brunch.
The food is outstanding, and Karim Alaoui and his staff make sure that every guest has a wonderful meal and experience.
Outstanding! Lovely quiet place, just right for business dinner. Food was fantastic!!
City Cafe ranks at the top of our dining list!!! It is consistently outstanding. We try to dine there at least once or twice a month and we are never disappointed. Their menu has changed in the last three months and we love the additions. Hats off to Karim who knows how a place like his should be run!!!
Outstanding service with great table side presentation of the dover sole! Each of our four entrees and two appetizers were well-prepared. Ample portions, too.
Good food, great atmosphere and incredible service.
Great meal at a fair price. Service could not have been better.
I will definitely go back when I am in Dallas again
We had a great experience at City Cafe last night. Was our first time in and it was made into an experience by the host Karim. I had the trout and it was amazing. Very traditional white table cloth experience, good wine, good food and good service
Lovely evening from start to finish
Wonderful place to visit with friends and enjoy consistently delicious food
The staff are friendly and efficient --such a delight!!
We had a terrific dinner with superb service. I highly recommend City Cafe for an escape from the noise levels and rushed service in most restaurants.
Karim and crew never fail to impress. The reintroduction of caviar is very exciting for us. Always new and exclusive wine choices that park just right with our meals and tastes!
Sorry to find City Cafe has closed. One of my favorite restaurants in Dallas. Love the people and the food. It’s a sad day.
Great food, service!

Very nice and cozy and intimate. Wonderful place to take your gal and wine and dine her. Nice but not over the top. Loved the staff and food was great. Limited menu but quality selections.
The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Great spot for a wonderful meal and conversation.
Service is always very good. Food never misses! Everyone is always friendly and helpful. Lunch or dinner, business or pleasure it's a great place to be.
Food, service, and atmosphere were all excellent.
A nice experience.. service was top great and the food matched.. Valet service is available so parking is not an issue.
Fabulous food and service. made us feel very welcome, like long time customers even though it was our first time dining there. Definite neighborhood gem to be repeated. Staff made several suggestions on wine and menu that proved to be excellent. Can't wait to go back.
Food is always outstanding. Management and staff service,as well as ambiance could not be better!
