Not living in Dallas, I am not a frequent patron of this restraint, but since it has had such good reviews, I have tried it three times in the last few years and each experience has been more underwhelming than the last. The latest entre was red snapper that was almost inedible. This is a fish that in belter restaurants is seldom served fried, but Mr. Pyles did so anyway. It was dry and greasy at the same time, if that is possible. It was accompanied with a garnish of some type of pumpkin puree and a mustard sauce, but it simply couldn’t rescue the terrible fish presentation. I debated sending it back, and should have. I did have the lobster ceviche, which was quite good as well as an excellent chocolate cake desert. Service was mediocre, with a waiter filling our mineral water glasses with tap water from a pitcher so quickly that we couldn’t tell him to stop. Bread was served initially but we had to ask twice for additional bread service. The wait staff is clearly not trained to be very attentive to diners. This was particularly inexcusable as the restaurant was not even half full at 7:30 pm on a Thursday. All in all, this is a place that appears to be living on its past reputations, and in Dallas there are a lot better options.
