We had a great experience! The food, the service, and the ambiance all exceeded expectations. We will be back
We have been to Cool River many times. We had not been there since last September. Last night the food was so much better than it has been. It was really delicious. The waitress Ashley, was very attentive. The wine and cocktails were excellent. The manager was visible in the dining room and went to every table to inquire about the experience.
The extraordinary food was matched by the friendly service. We enjoyed the scallops and the bacon wrapped shrimp was very unique and delicious. The server was very helpful. The valet called us by name. Very special place.
Great atmosphere including fine dining room with fireplace, very large bar and sports lounge and a separate cigar lounge. Very good service and friendly staff. Outstanding menu and full service bar and wine options. We had the redfish seafood special and it was just excellent! Can't go wrong with the many steak or seafood choices in this upscale place. Prices were not out of line with similar fine establishments throughout the Metroplex. Suggest reservations for the dining room on weekends, per usual.
While quite pricey, the entire dinner experience was fantastic! Great food, upscale atmosphere and quality service. I was impressed.
One person from our party was an hour late. The server was very gracious and continued to fill our drink glasses until they arrived. I was impressed. TOP NOTCH place for lunch!
Food was great!
Menu changed and it was okay, liked the old menu choices better. Shrimp & Grits was good but average nothing special (grits were okay). Service was excellent but food not so much was looking forward to this since I had not had it in awhile and was disappointed and probably not go back.
We celebrated our anniversary here this year Jonathan was our waiter and we could not have been better-taken care of make sure you ask to be put in his section. The manager was very attentive as well making the rounds to introduce himself making us feel very welcome as if we were his special guests. Food was fantastic everything cooked to perfection. We have been here for company Christmas Parties and always had amazing service then...they did not disappoint for this our more intimate event.
Service and food were perfect. The food came quickly, but no sooner than when you were ready for the next course.
Our server was excellent and went over the menu options including the specials for the day. Great environment for a business lunch meeting.
Good day with good food and good people. Thank you for the hospitality.
The food was great !!!! The service could be a lot better especially when u first come in ,and the waiter was ok not great like I expected especially cause it was our Anniversary!!
Great food, great service. Always a satisfying experience.
great night out. The service and waitstaff as terrific. The food was awesome - I highly recommend the ribs - they were meaty and simply fell off the bone.
Excellent food and great service. Best sea bass I have ever tasted
Very nice evening.
Service, ambiance & food was excellent! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to host a business meal.
My wife and I went to Cool River Cafe for Valentines day. They had a select menu but let me tell you, this place was incredible.
Our server "Foster" (I think his first name is Chris, but they have several that work there) was spot on, even though he had plenty of tables he treated us like we were his only one. He made the night extra special for us and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience.
The manager, David Coakley, also came by to ensure everything was going well. He spent some time talking with us and it's little things like this that really make you want to come back.
Between the food, atmosphere, and service.. we certainly will be coming back. Great job to the entire staff at Cool River Cafe, and thank you to Foster and David!
Very bad service. Dirty wine glasses. It took out waiter 25 minutes to bring one drink. I will not go back or recommend this place.
We celebrated an early Valentines this year. Cool River had a special menu which was fabulous. Salad, lobster, steak, veggies, and a shared dessert. Our waiters, Chris and Sadie were wonderful, giving us time between each course to thoroughly enjoy our meal. I highly recommend Cool River for any special occasion.
excellent excellent restaurant! highly recommend this place. food was outstanding, great wine list and superb service. go eat here!
The steak and service was very upscale!!
Another wonderful business lunch! Great variety on the menu. We all enjoyed and we will be back again soon!
Slow to get started - but the food & service following was very very good. It was a great choice & we will do it again soon.
Lunch meeting with a client. Service was just ok. bounced back and forth between a couple of waiters with no explanation as to who was our main person. Salad itself was good, but the steak with it was cooked improperly and had no taste at all. One of the worst steaks I have had here in Texas so far. For that price, should be much better than that for a place that is touting quality.
After a bit of a rough start (the hostess informed us that we would have to wait when we arrived at our reserved time, but the manager got that straightened out), we couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. The service was very attentive and engaging, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was delightful. We'll definitely return and, next time, we'll try the manager's suggestion and sit in the bar area - just to give it a try!
Great food, service and ambience. Definitely will be back.
Always consistent in quality and service. Can get a bit loud.
Five stars for David and his team in the dining room . This was a perfect evening for my friend and I to relax. From cosmos to our shared meal of the surf & turf served oscar style with the scalloped potatoes and scallops, we then shared the most delicious bread pudding with Maker's Mark sauce. What took the evening over the top was not the perfection of the taste of our meal, but the impeccable service we received from every single person. Will definitely be going back for more!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was great. Very noisy so if you want to have conversations across the table you have to shout.
just ok. It had been years since I have been (before they removed the smoking in the bar) and I was interested in trying it again, since we just moved to Las Colinas a few months ago. However the entire experience just left me, in a word, 'flat'.
We sat in a booth at the bar because there were a few large parties in the dining room and they were VERY loud. Our server was young and tried very hard, but was just not great. The martini's came out warm (and I only attache this to her because I'm pretty sure she forgot to place the order so they rushed them out). And several times food came to the table and we were without silverware and had to wait for someone else to bring it to the table. Again- she was sweet, but just not polished.
The food was just.... blah. The Ahi Tuna starter was fine. The tuna was WAY too thick (almost like a thin steak) and it was tough. The slaw was good, but the sauce that it needed to pull it all together was mostly absent under the mound of slaw.
And the ribs were tough and overcooked. Only 1 of the 3 'trios' of ribs were really any good.
Not sure I will rush back - and if I do, I'll stay clear of the tuna and ribs.
I went for my birthday. All I wanted was a nice bottle of wine & some lamb. There was lamb on the online menu. Unfortunately, I found out the hard way that Cool River was no longer even serving lamb. That was disappointing, but the wine was not. Overall it's an ok place to have a nice dinner.
Noted it was our anniversary (49 yrs) with our reservation. This was not even mentioned.
3 at our table ordered the tenderloin filet. 2 were thick and wonderful.
Mine was 1\2 inch thick at best and over cooked- well beyond the rare+ as I ordered.
The replacement had a layer of fat film around the edge.
Will keep with our favorites for steak - Pappas Bros and Bobs.
Good wine value. Great salad and dessert.
Fantastic! Great service
Outstanding venue and had a Wonderful Date night with my wife. Ralex was Outstanding and we will return. Thanks!!!!
Great meal! Fantastic service and atmosphere! My clients had a great evening.
There were quite a few large tables in one room making it difficult to have a conversation with my guest. The larger tables dominated the service leaving us waiting much of the evening.
Great restaurant with delicious food. The salmon was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. My boyfriend was very pleased with his 10 oz steak as well. Servers were very attentive. We will definitely have to visit again!
