    We arrived 10min early and we had Made reservation for 12 ppl and they set us in a table of 9 we ended up taking chairs from other tables and had to accommodate ourselves and no one offered to change to a bigger table even though we asked for a table for 12 ppl. Other than that the service was friendly and food was fast.

    We sat outside in the "yard." It was huge and very busy. The ambience is great! It was upscale yet laid back, and the service is good. The cocktail menu is diverse and food is good. Highly recommend!

    Great service, good food but really noisy with the live music speakers right in our ears. I never understand why at a restaurant, the music needs to drown out one’s table conversation.

    Good atmosphere. We got there and our young teenage hostess had on some kind of a see though-ish corset type thing on that pushed her cleavage up. Thought that was fairly shocking given her age and given the fact that I did not think I was going to a "breastaraunt" Food was decent, not great. The service we received from our waitress was terrible. She only came to the table when necessary, and we had to ask her three times for bleu cheese dressing with the wings that we ordered. My wife wanted more BBQ sauce for her brisket sandwich but they was going to be too big of an ask for the waitress. Valet parking was a beating. Getting there they made me pull all the way around to the other end of the lot, and with an injured knee, I thought valet was dropping my truck at the door so I didn't have to walk across a parking lot. Next, you'd better not be in a hurry to leave because they will hold your vehicle hostage for a good while. We probably waited 20-25 minutes for our car to be brought to us. I won't go back and I wouldn't recommend.

    When seated, it took the waitress about 10 min before approaching the table. Throughout the process or ordering and eating meal, she was often noticeably absent.

    The last two times I've been to Smoky Rose I've been disappointed. Ordered the Prime Brisket Sandwich with an side of potato salad instead of the french fries that come with the sandwich. Sandwich had a lot less meat than before and I received french fries instead of potato salad. Problem was that I was up charged for the potato salad. Unfortunately I didn't notice my CC till I got home. Don't think I'll be going back anytime soon. Two disappointing lunches in a row, it's time to move on.

    Great date spot! The bestie and I had an amazing lunch! The ribeye steak was well seasoned and cooked just right. Patio seating has flies, as to be expected during this time of year but the vibe is great as well as a perfect spot for pictures.

    We like going to Smokey Rose after or before we visit the Arboretum. We have never been disappointed with the food. But we only get brisket and sides.

    The happy hour drinks were very good. The appetizers were disappointing. I had been there 6-12 months ago and liked them. This time, the portions were small and the brisket nachos had very little brisket.

    Atmosphere was terrific and the live music really set a nice mood. I ordered the salmon in beure blanc. After about fifteen minutes our waiter told me that they have not used the bb sauce for a couple of months. Seems like this is something he should have known and should have been removed from the menu. I ordered the salmon anyway and it was very fishy, not worth eating in my opinion. I explained this to the waiter and he very graciously brought me some brisket instead (which was delicious).

    Our server was Delaney. She must have taken issue with me when I asked her to allow me to finish my food Order after she ignored me in order to take my husband’s order. After 3 of her larger tables were served and 2 had finished and left we had to finally have a manger tell her bring us our check for the drinks and appetizer, Which we had to tell her (or remind) that we had ordered it. Yes it was busy yes it was Friday so we always consider those things, but seeing her other tables and others with different servers being served in a timely manner we can only conclude she had taken it upon her self to ignore or order.

    Great environment and good food. The barbecue is very good but the mac 'n cheese the last time we visited was a bit off. More like butter macaroni rather than cheesy macaroni. On our prior visits it was one of the best dishes we had. Might have been just an off day.

    Such a popular place for everyone! Very busy last night (Saturday). The outdoor dining and patio were packed as there was a wedding party in the main patio area. It was comfortable outside and the ambiance was great, although a little on the loud side. Our waitress was sweet and attentive, but not that knowledgeable about what menu items were gluten free for my friend. I had the half chicken entree and it was a lot of food which makes for great leftovers!

    Really enjoyed this experience. We went at lunch time on a Saturday (Sept 3)before going to the Dallas Arboretum. It was quiet for us as we were seated inside. Excellent food. Hesitated to go before seeing the small parking lot and valet parking. But their web site explained they required the valet parking due to their limited space. It was complementary and we tipped well the guy working in the heat. I am so sorry I forgot our waitresses name - I think maybe Lauren? She had only worked there for about 6 weeks. We enjoyed visiting with her and she took really good care of us.

    I was a patron for the first time this past Saturday, August 27th for my 72nd birthday celebration with a reservation of 19 people that were all in attendance. Our one and only hostess did her best to accommodate all of us. She was patient and kind. The inadequate staffing was too much for her to handle alone. These were our concerns: (1) parking was a disaster. My son made two attempts to park unsuccessfully. He had to miss the party. (2) After a very long wait for most of us, 4 of my guest NEVER received their orders. Others, including myself never received complete orders. I never received my cold slaw that I ordered to accompany my 2 meat plate meal. A lot of my guest left without ever getting anything to eat. Things that went right: (1) The outside covered dinning atmosphere was great. (2) The restaurant decor made for a nice relaxing time. (3) The waiting staff were very courteous in spite of the difficulties.

    The location and ambiance is still wonderful, but the food used to be SO GOOD and the last two visits the food has been significantly worse. The menu has changed a lot and the food is just not good anymore. Something is off. We are SO SAD. The water glasses were so beat up and rough it was hard to drink from them. I mentioned it to the waitress and she said, “Yeah, they get banged up in the wash.” It would have been nice if she had offered to switch it out but she didn’t so I asked for a straw instead. Just a minor thing, but it adds up.

    The restaurant is fairly nice overall. The first table we were seated at the top of the table was extremely loose and felt broken. They moved us the servers were nice but seemed like they were very new and unsure of what to do. We ordered and received our meal the chicken fried brisket which came highly recommended tasted like the batter was cooked in burnt grease. The brisket was tender and not to bad after scrapping of the batter. The potatoes and green beans weren't too bad. The final part was thier peach cobbler with ice cream. The peaches were canned but good and the crust was alright just a tiny portion. The experience for the price wasn't that good. We won't be returning.

    The brisket was amazing! Ambiance, was great too. They had live music playing which definitely helped set an energetic mood throughout. The décor and aesthetics of the place are definitely very chic and modern meets rustic which is super great for a good instagram picture (which lets be honest we all love), and although I didn't bring my own dog they did have little doggy bowls and paces for them in the patio. They also had cute little games to play in the patio, but my favorite part was the dining room. Amazing décor, the music could still be heard inside and you still got to see a view of the patio. Definitely recommend.
