The Christmas decorations were absolutely stunning!
The food was good, service was good, perhaps a bit slow.
Overall a lovely luncheon in a beautiful room all dressed up for Christmas!

Excellent food, carefully curated menu. Pacing of the meal was a bit too slow and the room was quite chilly. When spending this much for dinner, one doesn’t expect a football game on the tv in the bar. The doors should be closed. But the food was definitely worth it.

Beautiful place and right in the heart of arlington. The rooms are very nice. The dining is a bit crowded and when it’s full the noise level rises tremendously. Very close tables so not easy to have an intimate dining experience. The food was amazing. The service top notch. Very pricey.

We went to Cafe 506 for a Sunday brunch date. The food was outstanding. Spicy Bloody Mary's were perfectly spicy. The atmosphere was probably a little noisier than usual as the place was filled with Cowboys/Chiefs fans going to the game that day. Great service. We will definitely go again.

As usual, food and service were excellent. My wife had Oso Buco and it melted in her mouth. I had the Pork Loin and it was juicy and tender. Sauce was a little strong but pleasant. Atmosphere was relaxing and sound levels allowed for easy conversation. We will return again.

I took my husband to the Sanford House for his birthday. We loved every minute of our evening. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful! They made us feel like we were the only diners in the restaurant that evening. It's the perfect place for a special occasion, but no need to wait for a special occasion. I'm pretty sure it's the kind of restaurant that would make any evening out a special event. Thank you Sanford House for a wonderful evening!

After reading great reviews we decided to give it a try and it was spectacular! Wonderful ambience and attentive and pleasant staff. The food was excellent, we both had steak. My wife also had the lobster mac n cheese! A wonderful meal, great wine selection. Chef even stopped by to check on us.
Take a stroll through the property, it is beautiful setting.

 (Oklahoma City)·Dined on October 13, 2017

I had a couple of good weeks in sales, my wife and I had always wanted to try restaurant 506. So we decided that was a good enough excuse to go on Friday night. We walked in and the noise level was down low the decor is outstanding, Chad our waiter was very helpful, never hurried. We both ordered the she-crab soup and were debating over what the flavors in it were when the chef came by the table and we asked him what were all the different flavors we could identify a few but he identified the remaining ones for us, very interesting. For for entrees my wife had the scallops and I had the prime rib. To say it was the best prime rib I've ever had would be an understatement. We closed out with some dessert I had the bread pudding which I normally don't like but Chad said I should try it if I didn't like it he would take it back. He did not have to take it back!

Quaint quite restaurant with great service, great food. Wine list could use some work, especially increasing by the glass options. Salmon, halibut, prime New York strip were all excellent. Grilled ceaser, crap cakes, grilled scallops, green salad all perfect starters. Key lime pie very good.

Going to Restaurant506 for brunch is our treat when the Rangers play Sunday afternoon games. If we lived in Arlington, it might well be a weekly treat! Yes, the food and drinks are that good, the setting is unique, and the service is great. What a pleasant oasis from the traffic and noise of the urban setting, I feel as though I'm dining at an exclusive inn in upstate New York or the mountains of Colorado, but not paying exorbitant prices. I drink my Bloody Mary's with gin and the mix they make is perfect for that. My wife had the short ribs Benedict. Any dish with the short ribs will be delicious. This time I had the shrimp and grits special. The shrimp were large and cooked perfectly. The grits were cheesy with good sauce. Make sure you have reservations because the 506 is small, but it's worth it!

My mother and father have dined here numerous of times and then a co-worker put the icing on the cake when she said her and her family dined at 506 as well. That is when I made a reservation on line, which was easy, breezy, and me and some friends had a GREAT TIME! The food is GREAT! The staff is very nice and polite and let's be honest, that is so hard and rare to find now a days. We dined for a Saturday brunch and it really was nice. I will be going back. 2 thumbs up Restaurant 506 @ The Sanford House.

Wonderful place for a special occasion or celebration. Food was excellent and the quality of the food and service felt very upscale. It is on the expensive side so it is definitely a fine dining experience rather than an everyday eatery. Ambiance is special and of another time with a Victorian feel. We went for my parents' anniversary and they truly enjoyed the experience.

This was our first experience at Restaurant 506. It was a wonderful experience and are looking forward to going back. The food was great and the wine list was exceptional. We ate appetizers like quail on grilled Brussel sprouts, crab cakes, and lobster mac & cheese. Then to top it off, we had the flour-less chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and Crème Brule. Both were wonderful but highly recommend the chocolate cake! Good eating!!!

After the kitchen lost our order, resulting in a 45 minute wait for our appetizers, the purported manager refused to acknowledge the problem, finally offering a $25.00 gift card (after a $130.00 check for the two of us).
