Cool River Cafe - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I met some old friends here while they were in Irving on business. We drove from Fort Worth to meet them at Cool River. This place was amazing! The service was superb, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was unmatched. We couldn’t get over what an excellent time we had. This is a place fit for all. Thank you Cool River Cafe. Cheers to a prosperous 2018!
We are at cool river before a play in Dallas. There were seven of us in our party. The waiter told us the menu had been re-vamped with a celebrity chef assisting in flavors and recipes. We were highly disappointed. The steaks were tasteless and tough. I ordered creamed corn. This was literally frozen corn heated in cream. The waiter was pretty good but not anything to write about. All in all, Texas Roadhouse is better than this place.
I met my daughter/boy friend on a recent business trip to Dallas. First the service, it was attentive but not over bearing, the waiter knew the wine list and most important, friendly. Second, the food stayed consistently outstanding from my days of living in DFW. The steak was cooked to the requested temperature and tender. The mushroom and mac sides were tasty.
Kudos to the waiter and manager. I ran late to catch my flight home and left my credit card at the table. The waiter did attempt to catch us but we were gone. The manager kindly held the card until my daughter could return to pick it up two days later. THANK YOU BOTH!
When I arrived, the hostess explained that the restaurant had become busy, so they had cancelled my reservation. That's the whole point of a reservation, right?
Were told we could be seated in the bar or wait an hour. We opted to be seated in the bar. We waited and waited and waited for them to put a table together in the bar. After 10 minutes, they seated us in the main dining area. That's good, but I would have rather been seated immediately in the bar.
The waitress met us immediately, brought our drinks then took our order. We waited, and waited and waited. After 30 minutes, the waitress brought bread.
We waited, and waited, and waited. After 30 more minutes, the manager stopped by to let us know that our order had been placed behind a large private dining room's order, so it had taken longer than expected to get ours ready. He offered to pay for our lunch.
Ten minutes later - a full 90-minutes after our reservation, we were served. We gulped down our food and left.
Nice of the manager to pro-actively comp the meal. Not satisfied with the greeting experience or the wait for a table.
Server introduced himself and two other people who would be helping with our party of 7 people. The dining area was loud and extremely cramped. Server took our drink order and after 30 minutes we had to flag him down to remind him we still did not have drinks. Salads came out and were served wrong. When dinner was served, the server did not ask if the steaks were cooked to order. As it turns out, they weren't and we had to send one order back. They were very responsive to correcting the undercooked food and this time he did make sure it was cooked to order. The Salmon was overcooked and dry. By the way, we were never helped by the other two servers. For the price, the service and food should have been better.
A grand spot worth enjoying. My only problem with it was I’d come here with the specific intent of enjoying the cigar lounge. But the lounge was closed for a private event. When you have an exclusive offering, a central attraction as it were, you don’t close it off. There are plenty of other rooms in the place. I left disappointed as a result.
I really enjoyed going to this restaurant. It was my first time to visit. I was looking for an upscale steak place with bar. I was surprised it was so much more! We sat in the bar area because we wanted to watch the football games that were going on that evening. But we did not sacrifice quality of service or food sitting in the bar venue.I will be going back again the next time I am in the Dallas area. Was definitely worth the drive!
We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. Very beautiful café that offers valet service but plenty of parking was available. I ordered the traditional turkey dinner, and I enjoyed it. However the food was not as warm as I would have liked it to be. Overall our dinner was very good and I plan to return.
Took customers to Cool River and had a great time. Wait staff was great, made good suggestions and everything was brought to the table right on time. Prices were a little on the high side but worth the money. The bar was a great place to meet and start the conversation before dinner. If I had to do it again, we’d just stay in the bar area and eat there. I will definitely be going back.
