I had a wonderful brunch yesterday at Restaurant 506 at the Sanford House! It was my first visit there and I was very impressed by the excellent service, the quality of the food and the ambiance. The crab cakes benedict were delicious! It is a true gem! Arlington is fortunate to have such a great place!

I love Eggs Benedict and so few restaurants get it right but 506 nailed it! Everyone else at my table liked their food too. The restaurant is beautiful and not as small or crowded as I had feared.
The service was curiously impersonal though. The waiter barely interacted with us, which is ok; we weren't there to be entertained. But when I made the reservation I did mention it was my birthday and i would have liked a happy birthday wish.
The worst thing was that he consistantly let my coffee cup get empty. He never refilled it once without my having to catch his eye and request it.
This was serious enough to me that it took away from everything else.
I really expected better.

Love this restaurant! The food is always excellent with varied selections offered to meet anyone’s taste. The service is always the best and the ambiance is one of understated elegance. Plus, it is quiet enough in order for you to have a conversation with all seated at your table. All of this is offered at a reasonable price.

Restaurant506 had been on our bucket list. We arranged to meet friends for restaurant week only to realize that had expired the week before. Nevertheless, the experience was delightful, the ambiance quaint, the staff friendly, the service responsive and the food delicious. Already have recommended Restaurant506 to a friend and colleague.

Celebrating my wife's birthday. We both tried something new that we had not eaten at 505. First I chose the Tuna Tower....now my favorite dish ever. Her beet salad was delicious. I ordered the Beef Ravioli. It was good but one had just the right amount of beef and the other three had very little, thus the value degrade. My wife was hoping for the scallops, but since they had been taken off the menu she chose the blank Salmo then and said it was okay. The service was superb, ambience great, and we loved the quiet not have to yell dinner. We will return but hope that the scallops return to the menu and something besides asparagus and brussels sprouts are not the main veggie.

The food and service was exceptional....the Brie leeks were something I will dream of. The wine we had was amazing and absolutely everything from the meal was fabulous. My only complaint was that we were in a small room with four other tables while we tried to celebrate our anniversary and several of the tables never got the message about fine dining etiquette versus rowdy bar level of speaking. When someone is less than a foot from you, no reason your voice should hit that decibel. In hindsight, I wish we had been moved to another room....but thankfully the company, food, and service more than made up for a few rude tables. Highly recommend, just be mindful of where you are seated if you are looking for intimate enjoyment.

This is a MUST on your list anytime you are in the DFW area, It's also an event venue for fabulous occasions and they have an outdoor venue for weddings along with rooms in the house and separate
guests houses behind the home. It's a 2 acre lot 4 blocks from downtown Arlington/ATT Stadium and
Ranger Stadium. We went for my bday brunch on a Sat (Sun. is busier) and we made reservations - highly
recommend. The home is just fabulous in it's manicured outside areas, inside is beautifully decorated along with the rooms named after composers and the Van Gogh Bar is a jewel. The dining area perfection and the tables all done up in linens. Fireplace in the main dining area, high ceiling and chandeliers - pale yellow walls and wooden floors. Hugh main dining room - Monet Room - is perfect for
16 or so people seated at 1 table. Graciously greeted, expecting us so quickly seated. Wait staff professional and 5* from start to finish. Eggcellent Brunch choices and beautifully presented - hot temperature and there was a burger option. I so enjoyed my b-day w/friends and it was over the top.
Gave us an informal tour of the grounds and encouraged us to look around. There is a spa across the street but we didn't make it over there. Highly suggest you check it out on-line and read all the wonderful reviews that have been written up on this Inn. Congrats to SH Inn and Conf. Ctr- you guys rock.

It was good. Service could have been a little better but it was obvious our waiter got some other tables that were being a bit demanding. The food was very good - we went for brunch. Mimosas were great as well. I’ll definitely go back.

It is a lovely restaurant. We had a table for six and we were seated next to another table for six. The noise level ruined the evening. We were unable to converse at all. A lot of the blame was due to the inconsiderate people at the next table, but I suspect that the room would be noisy anyway. They really need to consider more soft surfaces to absorb sound. The starters and deserts were very good. The entrees lacked imagination in presentation. The special, a steak, was tough and flavorless. Four of the six I. Our party ordered it. On a happier note, the staff was great and we absolutely loved the bar. Great bartender and nice atmosphere. We might try lunch here, but probably not dinner again. The rooms and room service here were also very good.

Thank you for your comments! Yes sir, the noise level can become elevated (especially with larger parties!) I do apologize that this impacted your experience. There has been some recent transition in the kitchen and it is essential to get feedback regarding this. We will certainly take your comments with sincere consideration. We are happy that the bar service and staff were great! We do hope you visit us again in the future.

We have always been more than pleased with our dining experiences here. The noise level is very low and much appreciated. Ambiance is lovely. Our server, "Mickie" (sp?), is our favorite. She is efficient without being overbearing and always greets us with a friendly smile. Oh yes, the food is wonderful!

We were very disappointed in their food. Our Fathers Day brunch included salty potaoes, salty smoked brisket megas, mushy and salty crab cakes. Our server offered to reorder the potatoes, we declined.
