Fantastic experience! We were 6 adults 2 babies and 1 toddler and even though this isn’t a place where there’s a kids menu and crayons available they were SO NICE, so accommodating & understanding. We felt very comfortable. And the food was amazing of course! Always has been one of our favorite restaurants in Dallas and still is!
Outstanding meal again at Gemma. Great, friendly service. Scone bread service by itself enough reason to go.
Simple and effective menu, kind and gentle service, and a cheery atmosphere. We loved it!
Brought my husband here for his birthday dinner. We enjoyed the intimate space and clean decor. The baked oysters were very flavorful and the sweetbreads (our first time eating) had a delicate flavor. I probably would have enjoyed them more if we ate the sweetbread before the oysters. They also gave us the fried olives on the house for his birthday treat... they were delicious!
Since we had 3 apps, we shared the rabbit on parpadelle. It was a nicely balanced dish with good acidity. Splitting it allowed us to get 2 desserts: persimmon cake and tangerine tart. The persimmon cake was rich, not too sweet, and good. However, the tangerine tart was amazing!
Overall, we enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back to try other dishes.
We went to Gemma to celebrate our anniversary and it was a great experience. Love the vibe and the food. Everything the waiter recommended was on point! I would love to go back again soon.
Just OK, food wasn't inspired, and for the price paid (which we're always happy to do for quality food), was not inclined to return anytime soon.
Very attentive waiter, offered specials, great low key ambiance
We had two types of fish and both were excellent. The raw oysters, although expensive, were also excellent. Gemma is a go to restaurant and it always lives up to our high expectations.
We recommend Gemma highly.
Gemma never disappoints. It is the epitome of neighborhood gem. The rabbit sausage appetizer is amazing, the desserts were outstanding (bring back the fig dessert) and the service is always top notch, not pretentious or overbearing. There is a reason that this restaurant is still packed after years of being in business. Well earned success.
The best restaurant meal I have ever had. The menu features an amazing blend of flavors that truly awaken the taste buds.
Great neighborhood restaurant that is worth driving across town. Interesting menu with great flavor profiles. Everything was fresh and prepared perfectly. Truly enjoyed this experience.
We loved everything about Gemma! We can’t wait to get back!!
Dining at Gemma was fantastic. The service, food, drinks, and everything else was amazing. I would recommend it for a special occasion.
Frank’s customer service was incredible.
He is a value added moment in the dining experience.
Everyone must go and request JEFFERY CLARK, Chris Hemsworth/Thor Vibes. <3
We have eaten here in the past and have loves it. This experience was different. There was a 3 course menu for Valentine’s Day. Every single item on the menu was so salty. The main entree I ordered was filet mignon and it was over done and dry. My husband had the trout and it was so fishy and dry. Dessert was ok nothing to rave about.
We were there for Valentine’s Day and there was a prix fix. But it did t disappoint! The pork shank literally fell off the bone - and the seasoning....amazing. The chocolate cake was out of this world.
Can’t wait to go back and try the full menu!
We've had many fine meals at Gemma-Dallas, but this was probably the best of all! The plating, flavors, and service were impeccable.
Excellent, friendly service, great food, enjoyable meal.
One of us ordered the cauliflower fritters which turned out to be a bowl of burned balls of mush in which no cauliflower was detectable. They were shockingly bad. We mentioned our dissatisfaction to the server, who barely responded. We noticed another table being served the fritters and they were equally burned, so this must be the norm. The braised beef dish was also cooked in an overly intense manner, with only 2 very small dabs of mashed potatoes to relieve the intensity.
Gemma has always been one of our go-to places over the years; but we were taken aback by the quality of theses two menu items.
The olives and pecans and the biscuits were delightful as always.
We enjoyed our dinner at Gemma on Sunday. We had started with the King Trumpets, which were delicious. Followed that up with the rabbit pappardelle, which was my favorite. Then we split the pork chop, which was also solid, a little salty for me, but still good. We followed that all up with the persimmon cake which I really enjoyed. Overall, I think we will add this to our date night rotation.
Attractive comfortable room, professional friendly service, creative and delicious food. Minor gripes about chicken porchetta being too salty and martini not properly cold.
We go often and it’s always great
