    Mediocre food; horrible service - took around 30 minutes for someone to come give us water let alone take our order; waitress didn’t write down our order when she finally came around and brought out the wrong drinks; meat was dry. Not worth the hype.

    Honestly, we had very modest expectations for a new restaurant on a Sunday brunch. Everything was superb- staff attentiveness, timing of service, and most importantly quality of food. Bravo- a great dining experience.

    Pleasantly boisterous volume. Great food, ordered lamb & salmon. Fairly intimate setting that maximizes the space available. Dallas' finest (tap water that is not filtered if you ask for water).

    We have adored the Selda on Beltline since we stumbled upon it a few years back. Since then we’ve brought friends and sing its praises. The Mayors House was like Selda PLUS. And in such a beautiful home!! It felt so special! We can’t wait to return and to being friends!

    Overall this was a great experience. They're still new so get a pass on some things. The host was also helping out with tables in the front room (where we were); and it didn't seem like the other servers were so busy that they couldn't have helped him more (water refills, order taking, etc). We asked if they'd space out our order so we could eat the salad first, and five minutes after the salad arrived, so did the rest of it. Including a really good "off menu" Turkish breakfast which was awesome save for the "sunny side up eggs" were cooked to hard boiled point. Still tasty though. The flavors on everything were really good. Cold cava by the bottle, decent price. We had two. Three of us really had a good time and will be back. The chicken shish, cheese, olives, salads, flatbread, jams, cauliflower....everything so great!

    The Mayors house is absolutely beautiful inside and out. It's hard to choose what to eat because every single thing is delicious. Bring a group and order a bunch to share! The "grilled eggplant salad"'is babaganoush and the best I've ever had. Don't miss their other outpost in North Dallas at Preston and Beltline.

    We had a wonderful experience last night. The ambiance was perfect and lively. Our service was lovely and the food, wow absolutely delicious. The bread is amazing and the feta was the best I've ever eaten. We had the hummus, beet salad, lamb shank and lamb roll. For dessert we had the pistachio cheesecake and turkish coffee. What a perfect evening. We will definitely be back.

    The ambience at this beautiful converted mansion is awesome but the food and service by all was outstanding! Our waitperson, Jedda (sp) was really attentive and made great menu suggestions! I also loved the singer/violinist who was centrally located so you could hear her beautiful sounds throughout the restaurant.

    A nice overall experience. With it being a new restaurant, several menu / drinks items were off which is to be expected for a new place that’s figuring out its required inventory without cash draining itself. Ambiance is its trump card. Gentle live music / singing that’s very much in the background so you can talk. Very pleasant and suits the old home feeling of its surroundings. Parking wasn’t easy but we arrived when the restaurant was full so it’s to be expected. Menu was varied and authentic - no vegan items as main courses so you’re stuck with eating a bunch of sides and salads. Menus are labeled VG or GF, so if you’re plant based you have to read the menu carefully or you’re gonna end up with surprise cheese. The wait staff are in the ball but could be more focused. This will come as the restaurant matures I’m sure. The passion is certainly there. Overall it’s a nice place to have a meal. Pricing fits the area so if you’re from Dallas it seems like a bargain.

    I have eaten at The Mayors House many times (at least 10). They are new and I know it takes time to settle in to have things run smooth. The waitresses (yes, all of them) are not as attentive as one would expect. REcently my guest and I waited 15 minutes to even order dessert, waited 10 minutes for a cocktail. . In Dallas, t his seems excessive. The place is beautiful and the food delicious (although can be inconsistant) My only real issue is the dirty bathroom floor. In all t he times I have been there, the floor has always been dirty - significantly so. It is not enough to keep me from going. I want them to be successful!
