American
Located in Dallas’ newly-minted East Quarter neighborhood,
National Anthem will feature a variety of riffs on classic new
American. The space yearns for food that touches vintage but with a modern approach. You can
expect elements of both coasts with a straight-forward Texas sensitivity, hopefully capturing the
vibes of a big-city, downtown dining room.

National Anthem is housed within the Magnolia Oil building located at the intersection of Commerce
Street, Jackson Street, and Cesar Chavez Boulevard. The building was originally built in 1920 by the
Magnolia Petroleum Company, later renamed Mobil Oil.

Fun Facts:
• The triangular architechture of the building is known as a “flatiron” design.
• The angles of the trianglular shape of Town Hearth and the Magnolia Oil Building are within 2
degrees of one another.
• From the rooftop patio, customers will have clean sight lines of Downtown, Uptown, Deep Ellum,
and the Farmer’s Market.

    The food was mediocre. Just not gracefully prepared. Heavy handed. The tastes were blah. The burger was tasteless, unless the brilliant burgers at the cool burger joint this brand once had--on the edge of the design district.

    The only down side of the dining experience was waiting for the valet to retrieve the car after dinner. The valet group didn't have the cars lined up properly and had trouble finding, then moving other cars out of the way. It took way too long to get our car.

    Only issue that presented itself that was challenging was parking. To me it’s confusing what your options are. Hopefully there is valet at night.

    The place was in the weeds at 6:15 - long wait for drinks, etc. The food was not bad but also not as good as the prices we paid. Was once a favorite and I will not return.

    This was my first time dining at the National Anthem. The restaurant was relatively empty; however, the ambiance was warm and inviting. We ordered the baby back ribs, chicken fried chicken, bang bang cauliflower, and the deviled eggs. Everything tasted exceptional. The reposado old fashioned is a welcomed surprise also. I would come back again.

    National Anthem is one of my favorite spots for lunch meetings with folks coming from Fair Park area, Downtown, Deep Ellum or if I am headed to any of those locations for a concert, show, museum visit, or whatever. Food is always great. Great, hospitable staff. Great cocktails.

    It’s hard to live up to Wolfgang Puck, it truly is. Before my entrance, I tried so hard to forget about the legendary institute that once occupied this space. However, almost everything looks the same (except it doesn’t spin) and so it’s hard to forget the iconic restaurant that once occupied this special place before Covid. My review is obviously jaded and based upon my prior experience before the restaurant opened, but spinning aside, the food was subpar for the price and the noise inside the restaurant (even on a weekday) was too much to handle. SO many bones in the ribs. Warm sushi. Underwhelming steak. $$$$ bill. Music coming from the kitchen. I don’t like leaving bad reviews, but I can’t help it.

    Our server was amazing! Drinks were great. Had the chicken Parmesan (special) and it was tender and delicious. Wasn’t keen on the desserts and spinach artichoke dip was meh. I was eyeing the meatball appetizer at another table and the Mac and cheese. Will definitely go back. Fun place.

    For the price, the food wasn’t that good. Very salty! Music was sooooo LOUD, we had to shout to talk. Parking was horrible! We ended up valeting 3 cars.

    I booked a high top table, if you want a server or anyone to pay you any attention don’t book this. Their was basically no server. The bartender was too busy the entire time to even bring us water. There was a homeless man who came in the restaurant and then jumped on top of 2 of the cars outside. The food is good but the service was some of the worst service I’ve ever had for the price point of the food.

    After eating at brass Ram a couple times over the last couple weeks really wanted to give national anthem a try as a ground floor of such a great restaurant already. Nick and his team does such a great job at all of the restaurants/concepts so I was expecting good things here as well, and wasn’t disappointed! we were early which of course wasn’t a problem, we were greeted warmly, and sat promptly at a great table. Adam, our server really made the experience as casual but yet very professional and engaging. Think of classic diner, food taking up a few notches – Philly cheesesteak made with prime rib, great cheese, and onion roll. Reuben sandwich with the bread done perfectly and the truffle fries, wow! It’s downtown but valet parking is right there in front so everything works. We will definitely be back.
