    Went here for my birthday with friends, and it didn't disappoint. The staff is very friendly, tables are far apart. Nice jazzy duo playing all evening (which made it a little loud). Cool decor fits the history of the building with a new modern touch. The menu is limited, not a large menu...lots of tasty cocktails! That was fun! I would definitely recommend.

    The ambiance was really nice, beautiful place to eat and great for friends. However, the prices were super high. Two people with an appetizer, two mains and two drinks and it cost la us $90 a piece. I think they also need a bit more variety on the menu or more choices. Other than that it was pretty good.

    We had a truly enjoyable first time experience at Elm and Good! The food was delicious and our server was very pleasant and friendly. The ambiance with live music was great. The musical artist was a welcome surprise to our brunch. It made me wish we had arrived sooner because we didn’t get to hear him perform for very long before his set ended for the day. I’m sorry I don’t recall our server’s name but she was really nice and personable.

    My fiancé and I have eaten brunch at Elm & Good several times. The food and service in the past was always on point. However, something was extremely off this past visit. First, we were seated and nearly 1/2 hour passed and no waitress approached us for service. After we flagged someone down, our order was taken. Was told the restaurant had no green tea. Surprising since I’ve ordered it there several times. We received our food, the eggs were overly salty, overly cooked and could not be consumed. The bacon was rubbery and difficult to chew. The French toast was good and so were the potatoes. I was extremely shocked with the slow service and quality of the food. Not sure what was really happening, but I’m hoping it’s resolved soon.

    In these times of short staffing in all restaurants, it was nice to see a group of servers and manager who worked so well with each other. All were professional and highly complimentary of the restaurant and hotel. We were there for Sunday brunch and the restaurant had a very good singer. Just right and the setting is terrific.

    I really want to love this restaurant. The hotel itself is beautiful and cool. Our server was great, but unfortunately, it's just so slow. We gave ourselves an hour and a half to eat before a concert and we had to push plans back. The restaurant wasn't crowded at all, maybe five other tables. They did have a group in their private room I guess, but it still wasn't crowded.

    This place should be called elm & bad. The food was just terrible - we ordered 2 appetizers, one entree, one side, and two drinks and not a single item was even relatively tasty. The tomato sauce on the patatas bravas tasted like bad bottled sauce from the grocery store. The Brussels sprouts were undercooked and tasted of oil more than anything else. The rice on the mushroom paella was severely overcooked, and the entire dish tasted like nothing. The side of grilled broccolini didn’t even have salt or pepper on it - just plain. Lastly, I’m not one to judge ambiance if the food is good - but there were tons of flies and fruit flies swarming our table. Made it impossible to enjoy the meal and was pretty disgusting. We didn’t eat more than a few bites of any dish and paid entirely too much for one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. Period.

    I took my dad there for Father’s Day brunch and I was embarrassed. The place was full of fruit flies and flies. We couldn’t relax because we were swatting them out of our faces and food. The food took awhile to come to our table. The food was mediocre. It was just a bad experience overall. I would not recommend.

    Have been here many times for dinner, and it was great. They are clearly struggling with staffing. We went early for breakfast on a Sunday at 9 AM. It was not crowded. Clearly more staff were set to arrive at 10 AM. There was maybe 1 server. All of the other staff who were clearly not as busy as this one server, did not do much to help the lone server. We finally had one busser who did not speak much English who was of great help. He was cheerful and helped tremendously in getting our order out to us even when the rest of his colleagues failed at their jobs. Need to hire more people like that gentleman. When he wasn't sure how to handle something, he got the manager and straightened it out rather than just saying, "I don't know". I wish I had gotten his name because while the managers (restaurant and hotel) were good, the rest of staff just seemed to not want to be there that morning.

    We were truly disappointed - food was simply BAD. Most of the items were off the list - whatever items we ordered did not match expectation. I believe the problem is in execution. The menu looks great - but the cooks have no idea how to cook the food. It is below average food - felt like wasted our money. Service was great - CJ took our order - she was extraordinary and staff members were cordial.

    Went for Sunday brunch, wouldn't go back. Brunch menu was small. Could not order off the regular menu. We tried several items, deviled eggs (I think the eggs were bad), mushroom cake ( was suppose to be like a crab cake, it was not) French toast (a little dry) breakfast sandwich (this was ok) red snapper sandwich ( said no aloi, but came on it anyway) Mimosa bottle was $50, not a good value for Sunday brunch. Like I said, I wouldn't go back and am honestly confused how many sites list this as a must try, I'm very disappointed.

    We were very disappointed to make a reservation for a Saturday at noon only to arrive and find out that you don’t serve brunch on Saturdays. That should be noted online on your brunch menu. Dallas is also a city that is known for brunch, so it’s disappointing that you have what appears to be a great brunch menu and then you don’t serve it on one of the busiest brunch days.

    I reserved thinking that brunch was available on Saturday which is not. Anyways, we ordered regular lunch which is good (without being outstanding). Maybe a more upscaled and variable menu will bring justice to this beautiful place.

    VERY disappointed in the Mother’s Day brunch at Elm and Good. The only reason I didn’t raise the concern at the restaurant is because I didn’t want to further ruin the day for my mother. The restaurant basically tripled the price of what one would typically pay for a brunch meal (Mother’s Day buffetwas $60/person, not including beverages) & the selection was EXTREMELY limited. Not only was the buffet selection limited, but they ran out of the food they *did* have and the food was cold and poorly cooked. It’s been a day and I’m still shocked they had the audacity to charge us $60 when they didn’t even have syrup for our cold french toast. I expect to be overcharged for Mother’s Day brunch, but I do not expect for the food to be MUCH worse than it is on a typical Sunday. I was embarrassed to have my mother eat at this restaurant, despite how beautiful it is on the inside.

    I have no problem paying $59/pp for a nice brunch… however this was a huge disappointment. We had a 2 o’clock reservation for eight people to celebrate Mother’s Day.The restaurant itself is beautifully appointed. Very aesthetically pleasing. The atmosphere was also nice and the lighting was very pretty. Unfortunately, I don’t think there was much culinary oversight or food and beverage management of the floor. The brunch station was unkempt, the Buffet linens were soiled with pieces of food and butter, and tongs were missing or dirty, when I went up to the buffet the first time, half of it was empty. They did bring out some new finger sandwiches and replenished a basket of crackers however the bacon was never replenished, nor was the charcuterie board meats. They were dried out and off-color. The French toast was probably delicious earlier in the afternoon, but by the time we ate it it was dried out from sitting in the Chafing dish. I asked one of the Buffet runners if I could please have some syrup, he replied that they were “all out.” The choices and selection at this high end, high priced, breakfast buffet were meager. Zero wow factor. The dessert selection consisted of two or three varieties of cake balls, some cookies, and cinnamon rolls that must have been sitting out since 10 AM. They were hard as rocks. Top that off with a tepid cup of coffee and a bill for $725 and you get a very disappointing experience. The final nail in the coffin was valet parking was not even complementary with a brunch at that price. We coughed up another $35 for our vehicles, even after validation from the restaurant. I wanted so badly to give this place a great review, but I simply cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone. My advice: Go to the Ritz Carlton and have a truly elegant experience at this price point.
