My favorite place to get a PB&J hamburger! Service was outstanding!
Great service and food. Was disappointed brunch is only on weekends.
Service was outstanding. Eddie, our server took care of us. Had a great experience although the flies outside wanted to enjoy the food, just as much as I did.
I had the crispy fish tacos which weren’t very crispy; the fish was mushy and the taco shells were leathery but the fries were excellent. My friend had elote shrimp which she said was fantastic.
Service was exceptionally friendly and incredibly slow. Every time we need something we had to look around for a summon the waitress.
Lastly, inside the restaurant was hotter than outside so no bueno on the ambiance though it was decorated nicely and clean.
Lots of stuff not available on the menu. Same for drinks. Not a great experience.
Date night with hubby.
The place was nice, the staff were nice and the seating was comfortable. The food was the true downfall. I feel it was truly overpriced especially when a side of the Mac and cheese is $8.50 but taste like hamburger helper. I had the the Korean watermelon bbq the portion sizes are horrible. To pay $24.50 for a single rib and the smallest chicken quarter you can imagine is ridiculous. Would I return again probably not. Drinks were good though. The watermelon mojito is tasty.
I really enjoyed Public school 214. It was my first time visiting. I will definitely return.
Food was just ok and the server was inattentive during our visit and got everyone’s order wrong.
Food wasn’t prepared correct, service was very slow.
Went for casual drinks on the patio. Somewhat strange food, decent drinks.
Found a new spot we really, really like for business lunches. Cool area of Dallas, and the Public School ambiance was so very fun. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. She also had a very big smile, which I always appreciate. The Hot Mess sandwich was off the chain, and we share the Churros and Nutella Ice Cream Sandwich for dessert!
At Public School, the label Happy Hour as "Recess!" I cant wait for recess!!
The service was so bad!! The ac was out and it was warm inside.
The food and service were great!
The restaurant was hot!!!
Nothing really great about Brunch. Cleanliness can improve.
Awesome experience. It was a little warm in the restaurant though.
Took my spry youngish 80 year old mom here. Very cool place, location is excellent. Dinner on a Saturday evening. Made a reservation for 715p. No issues with reservation, but probably didnt need one.
Food choices were broad and interesting. I had a Caesar salad w chicken, my mom had the fish and chips.
It was good. Drinks were good. The waitress helped by having a paper menu for my mom in addition to the QR digital phone menu. Waitress was probably overly attentive. Cleared my mom's plate before I was finished, picked up the paid bill before we left and seemed in a bit of a hurry.
I'll go back, try something different - the chicken for the salad was a bit chewy.
This would be a good place to watch a sporting event, sit and eat/drink on patio, etc. Good, not great, but good.
Poke nachos were very good and pizza as well. Server Barak was excellent.
This was by far the worst dining experience I’ve had in Dallas. There were bugs all over the dining room, the Brussel sprouts tasted like gasoline, and we never saw our waiter unless we asked the staff to grab his attention. Will not be dining here again.
The service was absolutely awful, but in their defense I guess it was a holiday weekend? Except the restaurant was empty...not sure how that works.
Items on already limited menu were not available.
Food and service was both outstanding. The Ahi Tuna Poke Nachos are a must try. It was so delicious. The beer selection is good too.
Trying to get reservations was a nightmare! However the manger stepped up and fixed the situation.
But once we were there the service was sub par at best! The food tasted like it had been sitting out for hours! Ingredients looked like pale imitations to what they have in the past. I would have excused this if being Mother’s Day and all, and if they were busy! However that was not the case the dining room looked like a ghost town!
Food and service was good!
Don’t recommend. Service was slow although not crowded. Took 20 minutes to get our drinks after being seated. Atmosphere seemed off. Food was disappointing. Burger ok. Ahí bowl was gross. More of a salad than a bowl. Kind of like a bad TGI Fridays with cooler decor.
Food was terrible, place was boring, and for the mimosas are served in regular glasses!
Went with a friend for brunch. Visit was great. We had a wonderful waitress, the food was good & the restaurant was socially distanced.
It’s all in the name. The only thing distinguishing this meal from a public school cafeteria was the Bloody Mary. 10/10 do NOT recommend. Service from hostess to waitress was also subpar.
Public School 214 is a very cool restaurant for families or a quick bite to eat with friends. The food was great and although they were short staff the day that we went, Jose still gave us pretty good service. And the location is nice, if you want to take a walk in the area. We will definitely visit again :)
The food is always fresh, comes to the table hot, ingredients are first grade with a good variety of choices. The staff is friendly, courteous, and professional.
The one in Addison is so much better, but both locations have a great sangria! Burger was undercooked.
Our waiter was very pleasant and easy to joke with, very accommodating and made us feel welcomed.
Food was delicious but the service was a bit slow and lacked engagement.
I was really hoping to have a great experience at this restaurant considering the type of reviews that they have received.We made reservations at 5:45 Saturday evening and arrive at 5:50 PM to be seated. When we walked into the restaurant and we immediately noticed that it was pretty empty and that may be due to the time of the day. We were seated outside which we requested. A member of the wait staff gave us water but not because we asked but because he had a tray with pre-filled water that he was distributing to everyone who was seated outside on the patio. After about 20 minutes I noticed that no one came to get any orders or check on us or greet us. I went inside and asked for a waiter to come to our table to take our order and she responded that she was on her way out. She came to our table and I informed her that we had been waiting about 20 minutes without someone coming to check on us or at least take drink orders. She did not really seem that taken aback by my complaint but she did offer me a free drink. When it came time to order the food my daughter placed an order for a pepperoni pizza and a lemonade, I ordered the peanut butter and jelly burger with a side of the beer battered fish, and my husband had some sort of chicken and rice and vegetables. At first she was not sure if I could get the single piece of fish and stated that she was going to ask the to cook. We proceeded to give her our order since we had been waiting at this point about 30 minutes to place an order. 10 minutes after we thought we placed our orders, she came back to the table and stated that I would be able to get the individual piece of fish and proceeded to ask us again what we would like to order and this Time she wrote it down. At this time it is about 640 and we still have not eaten but I noticed that a table of six that came in well after us had drinks and food well before we did. Our food finally came out at about 650. Burger was good, pizza good, chicken was gross.
Very slow service.
The food was delicious. I loved the new items on the menu. The fried cauliflower was amazing. Casandra was a great server.
My fries were cold and my fried cauliflower wings were old and they refried it to make it seem fresh. I questioned why some of the wings were dark and some was light. The answer was beyond suspect. I was told that it was how the wings were fried, that some wings in the center would be darker than the ones on the outside due the heaviness of the batter. Some bs like that
Excellent food and service! I went two weeks in a row!
I had a pizza and it was soggy, falling apart, and made me feel physically sick.
I would recommend this restaurant. Some unusual burgers. Great salads and friendly staff!
