European
Our light, bright all day dining restaurant gets its name from the hotel’s legacy as the original site intended for Dallas’ City Hall. The buzzing local bistro features a menu of Southern European-inspired cuisine with updates to classic breakfast fare, house-made breads and pastries, grain and vegetable salads, wood-roasted vegetables, fresh fish, and aromatic braised meats. The chef-prepared dishes are complemented by a robust wine list featuring a variety of quartino options and a menu of craft cocktails.

    Wonderful dinner at the City Hall Bistro. Service was very nice, and the food was very good. Recommend trying the Kanafeh for dessert (baked ricotta with brown butter pear ice cream), it was very delicious. This Hotel is a must visit even if your not staying the night. The history and atmosphere are amazing.

    Our dinner was absolutely fabulous and reasonably priced as well. The menu is not large, but the selection was varied enough that is was not difficult to find something to please. Service was great. The style is Modern Diner with white subway tiles - cozy and fun.

    We decided to try City Bistro on a friend’s recommendation. We were impressed by the attentiveness of the waitstaff and of the amazing food served. We went in not really hungry, but ended up devouring everything we ordered: caramelized Brussels sprouts were unique with a spicy flavor, braised short rib was tender and scrumptious and a black truffle inspired salted sweet potato. And these were just the apps. Then came Bolognese, Pork belly and a Lamb Shank for the main course. It was all amazing. We declined desert but inquired about a colorful looking pastry under a heat lamp. Turns out it was the restaurants take on a Mardi Gras king cake and we were offered a piece to try from the gracious GM Mr. Eric Porter who made recommendations for our dinner. And a plus is having after dinner drinks in the Adolphus lounge. I highly recommend the entire experience at the Adolphus Hotel.

    The food was outstanding at this small, charming bistro. My guest had oven-roasted salmon with orzo and a spectacular chimichurri sauce. I had pan seared swordfish served on a bed of tomatoes cooked in Moroccan spices. We had sides of broccolini and roasted Brussels,sprouts—both delicious. The restaurant is small, but tables are well-spaced, so conversation is possible. I will definitely go back to this lovely place.

    Food was terribly over priced, no sides offered with dishes. I ordered the pan-seared dish of sword fish and that is all that I got. I would assume with a bill at 100 you would get atleast a side with your meal. Super disappointing, will not be back. Atmosphere wasn’t even special, no decor or ornateness to the atmosphere.
