I would go here just for drinks. It is a very cool atmosphere but the food quality wasn’t worth the expensive price tag.

I have been here three times and it’s a great place to start the night in town. Perfect for date night or night out with girls. Must have The Marilyn..!

Restaurant was half empty and staff still seated us at a table that didn't have room for everyone. We asked to be moved to one of the many open tables but apparently that was not possible. So we left and went to Barcelona Wine Bar for an absolutely incredible experience!

The food, ambiance and service was amazing! The only con was when we walked in there was this sewerage smell which initially put us off.

Funky and fun joint with some tasty cocktails and tapas. Our waitress, Courtney was perfect. Attentive but not intrusive and friendly. I would avoid the gyoza (pretty sure it’s from Costco) but the meatballs were tasty as was the tempura rock shrimp. The people watching - we went on a Saturday - was insane!! If we go back it would be with other couples, too long a drive from Plano especially with all the killer options Plano/Frisco has now.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. It was for Valentine’s Day and the dinner was supposed to be special. The waitress forgot to inform us that two of the menu items were sold out before we ordered on two separate walk arounds. We ordered two cocktails and neither were very strong or correctly made. They were incredibly inflexible with dietary restrictions like vegetarians etc. fairly unwilling to work with you to eat something or would charge you full price for say a pasta with chicken on the side if you wanted it without the chicken. We basically ended up having a ceaser salad and 1 bruschetta shared between us and left before desert. Which really isn’t a lot of food at all for Valentine’s Day especially given that they marketed themselves as a tapas restaurant. Overall will not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends. They have nice interior decorating and good marketing I guess but it was awful.

The service was phenomenal. The food exquisite. I wish there were more options though. It’s a limited menu. But what they do serve , they make to perfection. The ambience and decor was beautiful. The music contemporary but not exuberantly loud. Overall, perfect for date night chilling

Very cute place to have a birthday dinner. The décor was everything. I only tried crab cakes and lollipop lamb which were very excellent. It is a really sexy vibe for a celebration. Highly recommend if you don't want to do the overcrowded club scene. The only draw back are the drinks, They all taste the same and not really strong.

The lollipop lamb chops were to die for- highly recommend those. Same for the lobster tempura- good amount of lobster for the price. It was NYE, so it was noisy, and the servers were spread a little thin, but pretty good service. Nice decor and ambiance. Extensive cocktail list. Will definitely go back. I suggest a reservation if it’s a special occasion.

Beautiful place, with great ambiance. Guests were appropriate/ respectful and the venue was not a club atmosphere. Cozy and decadent. The chandeliers mixed with pop art are everything! In addition, security outside the venue entrance, was great. I’ve already recommended to friends and plan on visiting again.

The food and atmosphere is just great and we have been here many times however on this occasion we got the worst waiter! No greeting, no smile, no eye contact and we fought to get his attention all night - other servers helped us but he was terrible and just put a damper on our entire evening . Saying that, we will be back and just hope to not have the same waiter ever again

Everything was just okay. The waiter was okay. We ordered 4 tapas dishes. The food came out all at once, very quickly, and was just okay. You can tell it was pre-made and all they had to do was bring it out. Nothing special. Had to wait a long time for a normal dinner time reservation to open up on Open Table, thought they were really busy, but another couple showed up before us at 6:30pm with no reservations and were able to sit down no problem. There were plenty of tables open.

We enjoyed Felix Culpa as a girl's night out. Luckily we arrived before Happy Hour ended. During happy hour, wine and beer are available at a reduced price and all tapas plates are 1/2 off. At the 1/2 off price, the food is a good value. At full price, it would take a lot of money for a group to get enough to eat. Plates are small, but priced like full sized entrees at other restaurants. All food served is these 'small plates'. There are no full sized entree options.

The environment was energetic and loud, but definitely a place people go to have fun. I'd recommend Felix Culpa more as a starting place than a place for dinner and a full evening out. And if budget is a factor at all, I recommend arriving during happy hour.

I had a wonderful time meeting a girlfriend for dinner and drinks at Felix Culpa in Dallas. Our waitress, Sonja, and waiter, Alex, was very attentive and helpful in recommending items from the menu. We had a 6:45 pm dinner reservation and by 9:30/10:00 pm the restaurant was slowly turning into a night club. It is definitely a trendy place for those looking to be a part of the Dallas nightlife.
We ordered the baked brie with green apple slices and crostini bread. It was okay. The crostini bread was difficult to eat as it was really hard. For my entree, I ordered the spinach homemade ravioli and it was delicious. My friend had the pappardelle ragu' alla bolognese. It was a large plate. I tried some of her dish and although it was good it was really salty. Their Romeo & Juliet cocktail went down a little too easily.
Overall, we had a great time.

Overpriced for the quality of food. Interior design is about all it has going for it along with a few nice staff. Otherwise, staff was mostly stand-offish/had a bizarre aura to them.

They lost my first reservation for 12 people - as I received an automated email from the restaurant saying the reservation had been cancelled. When I called they claimed the hostess called and that I said I would be out of town. I laughed and said it was bizarre considering I never received a phone call. The woman on the phone was super helpful in reconfirming my reservation.

HOWEVER, For making a re
