    Always a “Go to” for us! Service was slow , waited about 15 minutes for our cocktails, had to ask for waters and bread. Seems that once the diners leave at 6:30 ( for the “Special) the onslaught at 7pm for dining is overwhelming as everyone arrives at once. Waitress was very apologetic and nice but seemed overwhelmed. Remains one of our favorites, a we highly recommend, however but lowered rating on review due to service received.

    Unfortunately we were seated and after 30 minutes no one had come to our table. We did go find someone and evidently no one had been assigned our table. My gnocchi’s were fabulous and I commend the chef!! Just disappointed on how we were ignored as I had bragged about this restaurant to our guests.

    Hostesses we’re friendly . Our waiter was helpful , efficient and friendly too. Food was good as always . We had the short ribs and mustard crusted cod. Both were prepared perfectly and the vegetables were fresh and crisp. Also we shared the orange ricotta cake it was fresh and delicious too. Been here several times and always happy with the food and service.

    When I arrived at 5:30 we were told we could not sit outside even though I made those reservation’s at least 2 months earlier. We then we’re seated inside at a table for 4 where the sun was so bright we couldn’t sit without sunglasses on . Ridiculous!! Then we asked to move and were seated in the middle of the room and they were not happy. My husband waited 25 minutes for his drink he ordered to be told they didn’t have the whiskey. So then he orders again and that took another 15 minute to get. It was very loud and we had a hard time hearing. The food was good as always. We are frequent diners there and this time s the first time we experienced this .

    I had made a reservation for 4 people (for lunch). It was for the back room. The weather seemed good, and there was an outdoor table available, so we sat outside. The waitress thought my meal would be too small (an appetizer for my lunch, since I have a very small appetite). Therefore I ordered a beet salad, which unfortunately was quite limp, due to the lettuce not being crisp. Two others weren’t totally satisfied, as well. The screening kept banging against our table (due to wind condition), actually moving my metal chair slightly each time it banged against us). We told the waitress and asked if something could be done to remedy the situation. She showed no concern or understanding. We mentioned it 3 times, requesting something be done. No response! The wind increased, and therefore the screening, which was flapping terribly, only became worse! We finally just wanted to leave, since there was no offer of another table (there were others available). She must have wanted us to leave, as well, since it just went ‘down hill’! I have dined at Southfork many times, but this turned into probably the least enjoyable experience!! I regret having to give this explanation, but felt you should know! I don’t even know our waitress’s name. Hopefully, I hope to never have this experience again❗️

    DISASTER! STAY AWAY! Used to be a frequent guest here when it first opened. The food was amazing the staff and the owner was pleasant. Shocked at how it has turned into a such a mess. Truly awful experience and the food was horrible! If I could give it 0 stars I would. We reserved a table for an 80th birthday. We were sat in the wrong area first, then when we asked to move the waitress got grumpy. After we moved, we ordered the calamari as a appetizer. It was over cooked and hardly any calamari. We were served the scraps of the bottom of the fry bag. Ordered the Thai lettuce wraps. This used to be an amazing dish. We were served 6 lettuce leaves, each had 2 very tiny pieces of dog kibble sized meat soaked in a massive amount of sauce and a few shreds of jicama on top. After taking 1 bite then inspecting the other 2 they were all the same. We sent them back, but they charged us for the inedible dishes anyway. No apologies nothing to correct the problem. Not once were our water glasses filled after we sat. Any then they had the nerve to load the tab with a large party fee of $20.00. Mind you we were only a 4 people. That’s not a large Party. Stay away from this place!!! Horrible people horrible food.

    Our initial impression wasn’t great. Though the decor and design of the restaurant was””is attractive, the lighting at our table was stark, table setting bland and the restaurant was very noisy. To be fair, we had a very loud group behind us, and once they left, the noise level was acceptable. The Brussel sprout appetizer was very tasty, but the sprouts were undercooked and hard. Though our server initially forgot to bring us bread, she made up for it by being very helpful with menu selection and attentive to our needs. All was quickly forgiven as the food was fabulous. I had the scallops, which were as good as any I’ve ever had. They were served with a Parmesan risotto and mushrooms and spinach in a garlic sauce. Wonderful! My wife had the pan roasted salmon, which was also excellent. The creme brûlée dessert was very good. Great food makes up for minor issues with ambiance. All in all a wonderful dining experience.

    The hostess was a little snobby about seating us at reasonable table. We asked to be seated outside and she said we couldn’t. Then she tried to seat us in the back room near the pass through from the kitchen. We told her that wasn’t suitable. Then we were escorted to the front room and she tried to seat us at a table in the middle of the room with lots of traffic when there was a lovely table out of the way by the window. When I asked if we could have the window table she let out a disagreeable exhale of air, like I was bothering her. It reminded me of the 8th grade students used to teach who were experts at that with an accompanying eye roll. We did get that table but that encounter plagued me during the entire evening. Perhaps a bit of training would help this hostess.
