I was a little disappointed. This was a birthday celebration that we noted in our reservation. The second floor hostess said my other party was on the terrace and that was it. I thought it would have been more professional to walk me to my table. The service was slow, took 15 mins to get my drink while my guest was already done with theirs. Lastly, it was our birthday and there was no mention, no dessert, nothing.... we ended going upstairs but just to hear the band. The actual experience was a bad choice if you want to feel special.

Waiter spilt tea on table which ran on my lap and floor. He cleaned the table, kinda, gave me a towel for my lap but never cleaned the floor. I was slipping around and my foot and shoe were soaked

The food was really good. We got catfish and elk tacos. The tacos were exceptional. We wish we had the option to order 2 pieces of fish instead of 1, but that's a testament to how good it was. Service was good. We will return.

My boyfriend is a big muscular guy, and he by chance happened to order the smallest plate of our party! Everyone else had so much food it was practically falling off our plates. So, beware, it seems the fish platters are smaller than others. Great if you want to eat lighter! But other than the plate size discrepancy we loved everything about this place. Especially the atmosphere. :)

The server seemed distracted and came back to the table after taking our order to ask again what we wanted. The salad and the food arrived at the same time. We sent the salad back. The gravy was requested to be on the side. It was on top of the steak. This was an anomaly as we have dined there and given 5 stars every time.

I found this place here on open table, so my friends and I decided to try it for brunch. The architecture and layout is incredibly unique and the food was absolutely phenomenal. Each of us got something different and tried each others but couldn’t pick which dish we liked best! I have yet to try the non-brunch dishes but will definitely be back to do so.

Made a reservation via Open Table and confirmed with hostess at check in. She then tried to seat us next to the island serving station. Being that the restaurant was wide open and only a few table seated, I informed the hostess tables such as the one should be for walk-ins, not for a reservation. I thought it was inconsiderate she would offer such a lousy table to us. I asked for a different table and was accommodated.

Our server, Ernesto, was friendly, helpful and attentive. This was not our first time here but we encouraged him to provide us an overview of the menu and where the foods were sourced. I ordered a brunch breakfast and it was delicious. The potatoes were well-seasoned, the bacon crisp and the eggs prepared to perfection.

We thoroughly enjoyed brunch again at this restaurant and plan to be back! Thank you for another terrific meal!

A group of friends got together for our friend’s birthday.
We made our reservation for 8:30 pm, since nothing earlier was available. We were encouraged to arrive early because there’s a chance we may be sat earlier. So we arrived at 7:30 pm and waited patiently at the bar. After an hour, 8:30 came and went, and we were still waiting. We finally got sat at 9:10 PM! For an 8:30 reservation!
After we ordered, it took a long time to receive our food. It was 10:00 pm before we ate (even though more than 1/2 the restaurant was already empty by that time).
The food also didn’t come out right (medium-rare steak was medium-well).
Overall, no one was happy with the experience, especially the birthday boy. No one said they’d return.

Haywire is a great place with good food and service. The only big issue I have is the noise level! High ceilings and hard concrete floors makes the sound bounce all over the place and when the place is busy you might as well not even attempt to carry on a conversation with your guests. The food portions are a bit small but the entree prices are at full tilt. I know that I am being picky but being a chef myself all of the above mentioned observations should be heeded. Dallas diners are a very finicky when it comes to places like Haywire but with all of that said I would go back and would recommend them to friends to try out.

Great venue and vibe....it was my daughters 18th Birthday....most orders were wrong. Table of 13. One girl didn't get her food until everyone else was finished eating. Had to wait forever on the bill. Talked to our severs and 2 managers and all I got was....Oh I am sorry we are busy. That was disappointing!

the waiter didnt listen to all our orders, I had ordered a garden salad with honey mustard dressing and NO Blue cheese crumbles, unfortunately i got vinegarette dressing and blue cheese crumbles! He was not very attentive. Seemed like maybe it was his first day on the job.

Food is always really great here, steak is definitely the best! We tried the crab dip today it was really excellent. Service was a bit different than previous visits. Not sure if our server was new or something else was going on.
