Second time we’ve been for Restaurant Week. One of us had a meal from the regular menu. Both were very delicious and a good value. Restaurant Week coincides with our anniversary each so that’s always nice.

My sister and I went out to celebrate her promotion at work and this place did not disappoint. From the small bite palate cleansers to the lobster risotto we were quite blown away. The wait staff is phenomenal and the wine list to die for and priced reasonably.

Very accommodating for changes we asked for to our brunch. Food was very good as usual. We always go for lunch or brunch. Prices almost double for dinner. Just another benefit for us being retired that we can go earlier in the day. One of the best things is the awesome service. Familiar faces are a very nice plus!

While it used to be one of our favorites for brunch, since they brought on the new chef a few weeks back, which we were notified of after we were seated we've come to realize we may not be going back. The food was good, but lacked the flavor and presentation it did in the past. There were changes to the menu as well. and not necessarily for the better.

My husband and friend ordered the filet with shrimp. The filet was extremely small and disappointing; very poor value for the $44. It was also very warm in the room, where several people were actually sweating. Our waiter turned the thermostat down after we requested it be lowered, however. We had a party of 8, and several people commented that they probably wouldn’t be returning because of the inflated prices for mediocre food, unfortunately. I did like the salmon, and thought the price was more appropriate.

Incredible food, like "lick the plate" good. Seasoned perfectly. Lobster risotto creamy with fresh, tender lobster. My husband's crab cake had a delicious pecan crust and crunchy slaw with avocado aioli.

We visited on a quiet, rainy Thursday evening with a view onto the front porch. Friday-Saturday can be super busy, lively especially with stadium or ballpark events, so reservations are highly recommended. Can't wait to visit for brunch!

A wonderful way to celebrate our 19th anniversary. Highly recommend if you are visiting DFW and want to get to know our city, the American Dream City, Arlington, TX.

Nice unique brunch menu options, especially if you have a big appetite. Accommodated substitute when I asked for sausage instead of shrimp on Frittata-they kindly obliged and it was very good.

Dinner at the Sanford House was another very pleasant occasion. My wife enjoyed the Ahi entrée and I the ribeye. She thoroughly enjoyed the grilled romaine lettuce salad. And for those who enjoy a good adult beverage try the Mayan Manhattan, which is quite tasty.

The occasion was my mom's 86th birthday, a nice quiet place to celebrate for lunch with 5 people. The table was nice, not particularly decorative, but they did allow me to bring in an arrangement of fresh flowers and a birthday dessert (see picture) to dress it up a bit for such an occasion. The food was good, although the portions very small. The waiter was very nice and attentive, but kept using his hands in his hair to push back his braids, that bothered me a bit. My mom was very happy with the lunch and loved being there, so that's all that really mattered to me!

By luck I found out about 506 on a Facebook group when I was looking for someplace local for brunch. I can't tell you how many times I've driven past it and never knew there was a restaurant inside the beautiful Sanford House. The wait staff are some of the best in the area and the food is always top notch. A true hidden gem in the heart of Arlington.

This restaurant is wonderful. It is inside a beautiful bed and breakfast in central Arlington, Texas. The ambiance and charm would be hard to match in all but a handful of places in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. We could actual have a conversation without being drowned out by music, banging of dishes and other distractions. Our waiter Jacob was excellent, very attentive but not hovering. The food was very good. The desserts was excellent. Their Chocolate Destruction is unbelievable.

We have eaten at much larger and fancier restaurants, with more expanded menus and wine lists, but it would be hard to meet the value and charm of the Restaurant506.

Well done. Do not change a thing!

We were greeted by a friendly face, who seated us right away. There were a variety of inviting menu choices. Although, I didn't notice many for vegetarians. I ordered the Texas Club which came with their famous homemade chips. And, my guest had the Nashville Chicken (mild). I will definitely return to try other dishes....and have some more of the chips!

17th-19th century Europe implantation into 21st century Arlington, TX. Some will appreciate; for us, it's just old, overpriced, over-hyped, and attempting to be quaint and nostalgic, not our cup 'o tea.
