State & Allen Kitchen+Bar is one of those Dallas neighborhood establishments that is as real and as effortlessly fun as the people who frequent it. A place for a quick cocktail, or impeccably prepared food accompanied by a selection from an impressive wine list. We are your living room away from home, where you can hang out on our patio and enjoy good drinks, catch a sports game on the big screen—and above all, have a great time with old friends while making new ones.

We really enjoyed State and Allen. We came for brunch. They had great drink specials and played fun upbeat music. It's nestled in between apartment homes and It was open air with lots of outside tables. The food was great. We will definitely come back.

The chicken and waffles were not good the waffles are toooooo heavy. They were not good at all just doughy. They need to be airy and light. Try hungry jack mix that will work. I couldn’t eat them. I asked for a piece of toast. The 4 small chicken strips was to skimpy and had no taste to it.

I've been here probably 3-4 times since moving to Dallas, and it has always been OK, but Sunday morning we couldn't get any servers to help us. After about 10 minutes of waiting I asked the hostess if we had a server, she said she would send him right over. Five minutes after that, he came by but went to the table they had just seated.

I tried to get his attention so we could at least order drinks and he intentionally ignored us. It was kind of awkward. We watched him walk to the kitchen, disappear for five minutes, then walk back with one iced tea for another table. We waited another 5 minutes or so and then left. I believe they are struggling financially and aren't able to train or keep good servers, and that speaks to every bit of their operation. We will not be back.

State & Allen Kitchen + Bar
Responded on February 26, 2021

Jeff, this is certainly not the experience that we want for any of our guests. It seems there may have been some confusion between the hostess and the servers regarding table assignments. We have discussed this with the entire team and clarified any existing confusion. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon and deliver a better experience.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention as it is certainly not within the standards we have set for our staff and for that we apologize. We will be addressing this with our entire team, but if you can provide us with the date and time of this incident, we can be more targeted with our follow up.

Brennan, we are sorry to hear that you didn't have a five star experience with us. Our GM personally visits the table of all of our guests & after checking with him, no one has raised any concerns to him recently about slow service or issues with mask protocols. Had an issue been raised, we certainly would have addressed it at that time. Thank you for your feedback to help us improve and we encourage you to share any future concerns with our GM during your visit.

The restaurant was great. Service was excellant. my only complaint is we were having a casual Saturday night dinner on the patio and the noise level from surrounding bars and other places was very distracting. There is nothing the restaurant can do about that, its not there fault but everything else was excellant.
