Out-of-town college friend visited and we needed a middle location to meet. Found on YELP. Requested outdoor, and they were able to accommodate. Lovely garden-like porch setting. Delicious, affordable. Surprising for Arlington.

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.

The place far exceeded our expectations. We've wanted to try it for a long time and finally did. It's hard these days, to find a restaurant where the atmosphere is quiet and conducive to actual conversation. We found that and more. The chef even came out of the kitchen at one point and made his way to each table making sure that everything met expectations. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back.

As always, impeccable. Chef Klein creates a menu that appeals to many tastes, and every dish is carefully prepared and presented. My fish was cooked perfectly, and the sides were a perfect match. The staff is friendly, efficient, and prompt. On top of everything else, prices are reasonable, making it an absolutely great value.

The food was good just not what I wanted. I made my decision to go there based off what the online menu stated they were having and even changed my reservation. I was totally disappointed once I saw that and just made the best of the situation. And would I go back probably not.

My husband and I went there to celebrate our 16th Wedding Anniversary. I had always wanted to experience a meal there. and it was everything I had dreamed of - elegant furnishings, formal table setting, delicious food prepared by a gourmet chef, polite and friendly service. I would definitely recommend it as a special occasion location!

Prime rib night is always great! With bacon jam, au jus and horseradish sauce! Yum! New menu looks great! The new chicken with the burre blanc pasta was really good. Summer corn chowder and scallops were great appetizers. Chocolate decadence is decadent. I would/will go again! Pretty good vino selection! Come early and spend a little time in the bar.........

Everything was wonderful except one major thing. We asked for a gluten free menu, which they have available. We ordered something off of that menu and we questioned our waiter over whether what we received was truly gluten free, and were assured it was. My father has celiac disease, and contact with gluten at the very least makes him extremely sick. He was visiting from across the country, and this visit was ruined by him having to spend the last two days of it in bed unable to even walk around. After following up with the restaurant, it was discovered that the waiter rang his meal in incorrectly and my dad was served a plate containing a large amount of regular pasta. After discussing this, I was told that the chef would contact me directly to discuss how they could make it right. Several days later, I have still not heard from anyone at the restaurant.

An unexpected treasure!! Food was excellent...service was top notch! Our server Demetrius went above & beyond. Atmosphere was a lot nicer than expected (not casual, but we were accepted with open arms disputed being in very casual clothing). So happy we found this place. Will come back next time we are in town for sure! Highly recommended.
