Global, International
The kind of neighborhood gathering for spirits, wine and bites in the Rice Village.
A courtyard entry with a summer-European feel – complete with candles and comfortable seating – leads the way into an inviting space where the casual and friendly hospitality set the stage.

Whether sharing stories at the friendly bar, sitting in an intimate corner or gathering with a group at the community table, there’s always something interesting to see, and definitely, always something great to eat and drink at Simone on Sunset.

We have amazing cocktails that will tantalize your palate. Don’t be afraid to ask our bartenders for something special and not the usual Rum and Coke.

    It was steak night, and delicious. A few appetizers came out after the main meal, which was not what we were hoping for. But the food was really great, the noise level was quiet so we could talk and hear each other. The music was a fun, remix of songs. Very pleasant and great for girl's night.

    went for steak night which was $35. The steak quality was poor. It was cooked right, but I could have gotten the same steak at a steak night that cost $15.

    The service is terrible, they are totally disorganized. The waiters have no idea about customer service. I went to eat with my wife and we ordered our food and they only brought one dish because the waitress thought we had only ordered one, which made no sense, we had to wait around 20 more minutes for the second dish to be brought out. At the time of paying the bill it was totally wrong since they have no order in relation to what is paid for open table. The place is nice and has good music, unfortunately management and service are not a priority at this place. My recommendation is to look for other options.

    It has been a minute since I'd been to Simone's on Sunset. I forgot how much I enjoy the ambience, the good food, and excellent service. Parking is a bit of a pain and think the website should do better about telling patrons of parking options.

    The absolute worst. Service was horrible. There was so many servers but only one outside. Kept passing by not being much help. Paid 63 dollars for water, appetizer, and a drink. Absolutely ridiculous. We weren’t being asked if we wanted to order our main meal so we got fed up and left.

    The food vs value did not add up. The food was subpar at best for the price and the service was fair. We had water with our meal which turned out to be $8 per bottle for three people, this should have been clear from the beginning as it turned out to be 1/4 of our bill. Such a cute place, but that is where it ends…would not go back nor recommend.

    This was our first time and we were glad we chose to come. Our waitress Jess was amazing and gave us great suggestions and ideas. The food came out hot, fresh and presented well. We all shared plates but especially loved the burger. The drinks were good and everyone was happy. I would definitely go again.

    1st time coming here for a Law Firm team appreciation happy hour. The vibes were great, cocktails were very refreshing. Ambiance overall was very nice. Service was speedy until towards the end (which is understandable as more people where coming in). Really enjoyed my time here. Wil definitely be coming back!!

    Was looking forward to brunch menu options listed online but disappointed that they had a very limited menu upon arrival which differed from online. They had no orange juice on a brunch day. The ambience was too dark for brunch in the back room were we were seated. The server did her best to assist our group of 14 with our reservation. Patio looked nice but we did not use it since TX summer heat was out in full force.

    I was so disappointed in Simone. The valet was super rude. Our waitress was nice, but knew nothing about the menu. We asked if she was new, she said no. My friends burger was awful. Not a good experience. Wont return.

    Very small selection on the menu and the atmosphere was lacking. It's a house that was converted into a restaurant and the bar section smelled musty and old. Our server was nice and efficient, and the food was okay, but nothing special, especially so since this was on Mother's Day. There were about 4 other groups there and they seemed to be okay with the surroundings, so YMMV if you decide to go to this location. I do enjoy supporting local business, but only when the business puts in more than what I would consider the minimum of effort. Again, not terrible, but my expectations are a little bit higher when I take my family out for a meal (which doesn't happen very often.) Disappointed.

    We really enjoyed the ambience of the bar it was cozy and comfortable. The only issue was the drinks. Neither of us cared for our drinks. We ordered 3 different ones and didn’t care for either. He finally just opted for a beer. We didn’t try the food but it looked good.

    We made reservations for 12:30 pm on our way back to DFW not knowing there was a drag show scheduled for 1 pm. We were seated in an empty, dark back room because the tables in the main dining area were being held for the show at an additional $25 charge. We just wanted brunch. We sat for about 15 minutes before our drink order was taken. 15 minutes later we were told they had no ingredients to make our drinks (ordered bloody Mary's during Sunday brunch). The food was tasty but not at all the brunch menu advertised on line. The poached egg on the avocado toast was more like a hard boiled egg. The shrimp and grits were good. We ordered a cappuccino to go. Our waitress made us a drip coffee with milk and said they had no to go cups. It was just an odd experience but looks like it could be a cute place. We had our dogs in the vehicle and there was no street parking. We asked the valet where to park ourselves and left him with the keys. We asked that if the truck needed to be moved, he should come and get us. We worried about our dogs trying to jump out when a stranger opened the door. Instead he asked if our dogs would bite. He moved the truck down the street after we entered the restaurant. That was extremely stressful.

    This is one of my favorite bars to go to after a long day of work or on Sunday Funday. They have live music on the patio some night. I have even held a private networking event in their back space. The staff is professional and the bartenders make great drinks. They have this cool wine cellar room that is private that I like to sit at as well. Their truffle popcorn and chicken samosas are a staple food that you have to try! Their charcuterie board does not disappoint!

    I made an outdoor reservation for a double date on my anniversary with my boyfriend and at the last minute I asked them to switch inside because it ended up being 50 out. They were accommodating and put us in a private room, it was beautiful and romantic. The staff was attentive and friendly. The price wasn't too bad either considering the quality. Overall just a great time :)

    This was the worst restaurant in history..the food was horrible it was steak night and the steaks weren’t cook right at all..we tried to exchange the food for a different meal and was told no. They didn’t want to take the food off of our bill. Then proceeded to say they will call the police if we don’t pay! I came early to drop off my V day set up for my girlfriend so I don’t kno if they thought I was just dine & dash but I wasn’t! Ruined our valentines night Dinner had to go to a different restaurant last minute! Please don’t not waste your time or your money going here!
    Simone on SunsetResponded on March 12, 2023
    It is unfair to portray it this way. You ordered steaks, they were cooked exactly as you had requested. if we had messed up the food then we would gladly refund it. But we didn't. You ate half of it and then demanded that you wanted to return it. Then you argued with the server that you do that all the time at different restaurants. Stop doing that. If you don't like a particular dish, don't order that again.
