    Food and service were good. Initially Music was nice volume what I’m use to when dinning out. Once DJ arrived Music was way to loud to have conversation during dinner. Don’t like yelling across the table to communicate.

    The music is much too loud, you can't even hear the ppl at your table talking! The food and drinks are good, but a bit pricey for my taste as this is not what I would call UPSCALE.

    Our server was very friendly although a little slow to check back and pick up empty plates / refill water. The food was delicious and the drinks were absolutely amazing. A bit noisy / raunchy for an intimate dinner date because of a birthday crowd but nonetheless it was an energetic and fun environment!

    OMG! What an experience 💥 It was my mother-n-love’s 76th birthday celebration and what a celebration it was. The food was GREAT and the drinks were WONDERFUL! I had been trying to get reservations that was conducive to my schedule and what a surprise when I was able to get reservations for the birthday celebration. I definitely will be coming back. The STAFF was PHENOMENAL and well trained. Keep doing what cha doing because it’s working! It was obvious by the CROWD and those waiting to get in the establishment speaks volumes of how wonderful this place is! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🙌🏽

    Order placed with server, as we waited for our food, two other groups came in ordered received their food and we are still waiting. In fact one table had to go boxes brought to them. Unfortunately the waitress attempted to blame the kitchen, but none of her excuses made sense. It was a horrible showing for my out of town guest to experience. I hadn't been in over two years, probably won't be going back.

    In spite of the rainy day Kitchen + Kocktails provided a great experience for my friend’s birthday. Our waitress, Ashley, was both knowledgeable of the menu, friendly and timely with our requests and order! She gave complimentary drink tastings which enriched our experience! I would definitely recommend this Dallas spot! The food and drinks were TOP TIER!

    Came in town to visit family for thanksgiving and this restaurant was recommended. So we tried it out before hitting the road. It is definitely a vibe, the staff were friendly, DJ was on point. The food and drinks were excellent. Definitely a place to return. Cinnamon B was an excellent waiter.

    As always the food was very good. We went on a Tuesday evening before Thanksgiving so it wasn't very crowded. We were sent a text that our table was ready before time which was a first for us. The hostess was ok but the wait staff was very nice. The food was delicious. We ordered the salmon bites for an appetizer. I ordered the catfish and grits and mac n cheese. The fish and grits weren't hot but it wasn't cold either. Maybe it sat while they waited for my friend's food to be finished. She ordered fried pork chops, yams, and greens. She loved all of her food. I also ordered the Jose Cuervo margarita. I do wish they had a smaller frozen margarita option. They only have the really big ones for $30 and I wasn't able to finish it.

    Great music but just a tad too loud. No paper towels or hand dryer in tge lady's room, and server a little slow bringing the check. Despite these hiccups, I will go back again and recommend to others.

    The food is always great. However, the wait and the service has to improve. It took about 15 minutes to be seated, another hour 20-30 for the server to come and take our drink and appetizer order. Our server was nice, I did tell her to smile more that helps when the wait is long and customers are frustrated from the wait. I would suggest not to overbook for the day especially a Saturday because that’s money making day and of the wait is long to sit and have our order taken, that will reflect on the tip (even though gratuity is reflected of the ticket) and everyone walking past the customers should speak and/or smile “Hey, I hope you all are enjoying yourselves” (: All in all me and my Bud (best friend) love Kitchen and Kocktails (:

    Poor unfriendly staff. Slow. Could have made a lot more Money from our group of 8 but we could barely get orders in and when we did, it came incorrect or not at all. Tyler helped us and it was actually his day off. When Kenny came he was also awesome. He did all he could to help us. Bravo. But cmon, he’s just one guy. The band was really good. I’d only go back for Kocktails at the bar when the bad is playing. Otherwise it’s a pass.

    Great Dallas spot with all around amazing food and even better drinks. The music in this place was awesome and will have you either dancing in your seat, reminiscing or just chill and enjoying the atmosphere. This spot is perfect for working remotely and getting out of the house while having some great food. I had their Caribbean jerk lamb chops along with their candied yams and lobster mac and cheese and I was amazed. Do yourself a favor and come check out this place. You wont regret it.

    Me and my fiancé chose this restaurant as an anniversary dinner. We did not leave happy!! Once seated, it took a waiter all of 15 minutes to even greet us, even though plenty of other waiters were available. Fast forward to receiving our meals, the shrimp was fried extremely hard and this establishment charges $11 for INSTANT potatoes!!!! All in all, we left with a bill of about $100 but was still hungry. Only plus side to our experience was the awesome playlist of music playing through the speakers. Very sad 4/10 :(
