City Council Restaurant and Bar
City Council is a restaurant that focuses on healthy dining. The restaurant is a unique blend of restaurant and bar, with creative entrees and unique cocktails this eatery is just as much a nightlife spot as it is a restaurant. The most striking feature of the interior is the lighting. City Council is primarily lit with bare hanging Edison bulbs of varying heights throughout the dining area.
City Council's menu is an interesting mix of international influences. The menu is split into starters, pizzas, entrees, irons and desserts. The irons are the signature item of the house and come in several different varieties. The two most popular variations are the Texas, with roasted seasoned potatoes blended with jalapenos, red onions, pico and avocados and the Far East served with Asian slaw spicy peanuts, soba noodles, hoisin, broccoli, mushrooms and roasted peppers.

Terrible service. We were sat down by the first disinterested waitress. The 2nd waitress was on her 4th day and clearly overwhelmed. She apologized for not seeing us (after a good ten minutes of sitting at the table). She took our drink order and appetizer order and left. The manager came to the table and asked us to move to a smaller table so he could accommodate a larger table. He agreed to comp our drinks. Great. 5 more minutes and nobody. First disinterested waitress returned and asked if he wanted anything. Yes, we re-ordered the first order. First disinterested waitress leaves. Now at 15 minutes and we had only water. Manager comes back asks hows it going. We order again. He goes to first disinterested waitress. Then to 2nd new overwhelmed waitress. Then back to disinterested. Then back to 2nd overwhelmed waitress. All the while I'm staring at the drinks we ordered at the service bar. We finally left. 20 minutes in the joint and unable to get the very complicated order of a Lone Star and a Pinot Noir. It was 25% full when we were there. The place next door, Nodding Donkey, was packed, service and food were average but at least they actually brought things you ordered. City Council sucks.
Sunday brunch. Opened late, slow service, food below average (including asking for "crispy" hash browns and getting soggy, asking for "over medium" egg which was way overcooked). One and done.
Food was very good. Server very attentive. Even manager came out to talk and check on us. Very personable.
Food was meh. I had the chicken fried steak with biscuits, eggs, and gravy. There was about 2 tablespoons of gravy. When I asked for more, they sent out another couple tablespoons. The meat in the chicken fried steak was tough and chewy. The best part of the service were the gentlemen who refilled our water glasses on a regular basis.
went here for brunch and will definitely be back! we had the churro waffles and the croissantwhich and both were delicious! they also do a bottle of champagne + choice of juice for $18. overall great food & great service. will definitely be back!
They didn’t have our open table reservation and failed to accommodate my request for my fiancée’s birthday.
We cannot recommend this restaurant. Service was good, but food and atmosphere was disappointing. Now for the teenage or college crowd.
Had an OT reservation for 4 to see the carolina game and they sat me outside without a server.
Had a great time! This place is so energetic, the service was outstanding and the food was very tasty! Great place and sad it took us so long to make it over to State and Allen to discover this restaurant.
Good selection. Good food, and staff was sweet.
Parking a problem way too loud. Overpriced wine for a bar
