The house was decorated with old antiques each table setting was a little different but very elegantly done . Making it very inviting. The food was prepared perfectly. And could not have been any better

The parking immediately adjacent to the restaurant is small. However, across the street associated with their spa is ample parking. The vibe is low key but classy and the entire staff is very friendly. Our waitress was great, making wine suggestions per what I told her I preferred, and the food was very good. There were four of us in our party for a girls night out and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. I had the scallop and shrimp pasta with a glass of wine and it was fabulous.

I’d grade this about average on the food. The service was excellent.

Highlights - strawberry salad and chowder

Low lights - dessert - bananas foster creme brûlée. The brûlée tasted burnt.

Drove an hour to try. Will not return unless in that area again

Love this restaurant. Very good food, great ambience, pleasant service. On the expensive side, considering that portions are reasonable but not Texas-sized, but worth it.

We went for DFW Restaurant Week, as advertised in local paper, but when we arrived we were told it didnt start until the next week. Other couples were also told the same thing. We stayed anyway, but the only food really good were the salads and bread. pork chop tough and almost every entree had some sort of lemon sauce on it.

Loved the environment and setting. My daughter ordered the stuffed french toast, which was delicious and worth the cost I believe. I ordered the pecan crab benedict cakes, they were good but not delicious and very tiny. Didn't think they were worth the $20 spent for them at all. Otherwise, lovely place.

High Quality Good Tasting Food. I have lived in Arlington for years and just discovered this place and it very good. I have had Lunch and Brunch within 2 days of each other and both were very good. Nice atmosphere and great service. I highly recommend it and it will become a go to favorite for me.

The food was unbelievably delicious- some of the BEST we have ever had. The portions were large and oh so good! We had a meat/cheese board for starters which was huge! It was so good and tasted very fresh. We split the special of the night- which was a Dr.Pepper basted pork shank with horseradish mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus- OMG! We have never tasted anything like it- unbelievably delicious- so hard to stop eating! We were stuffed- but our wonderful waitress brought us out two complimentary desserts for our anniversary- bread pudding and a cream brûlée. We tried both- which were out of this world delicious, but had to stop eating. The drinks were phenomenal- highly recommend the old fashioned which was was smoked perfectly. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this restaurant! It's a hidden gem in Arlington!

Had been reading about this place and decided to go for my birthday. I was concerned it might be old and musty. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. Beautiful restaurant and the best food ever! Very affordable when you see that entrees come with sides vs a la carte. The staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to see that we were taken care of. The chef even made an appearance! I had house salad and my sister had curry soup. Both were outstanding. I had steak Diane which was one of the reasons I wanted to go there. You don’t see that on menus these days! Perfect and sides were great! For dessert, s’mores bread pudding. Just talking about it makes me want to go back! They gave us a tour of the property so now considering having my 25th wedding anniversary party here. I am so glad this restaurant survived the last year and did not let quality go down! Perfection!

We had a wonderful experience, and our waitress was welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, there when we needed her and not revisiting too frequently so we could enjoy our meal. We arrived at 5:30, had the room to ourselves and loved the music and ambiance. A group of 4 young people (30's?) came in and one girl was particularly loud for such a small dining area, but we were at the end of our evening. The size of the salad for the price was a bit of a surprise. I've seen more generous servings/portions more fairly priced at many other nice establishments, and feel this would be an improvement to the menu at the 506.
