They have ruined what was once a Dallas treasure. It is a schizophrenic decor debacle with unimaginative food, no sides, miniature portions, and a staff wearing uniforms two sizes two small. We were so disappointed as we loved the former version of the French Room.

The staff was amazing. Very attentive. We were given champagne when we were seated to celebrate our anniversary. The food was amazing. We both got the tasting menu. It was very culinary and beautifully presented. The food was bought and a leisurely pace. Our dinner took 3 hours. Which was perfect. The room is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special event. It was very expensive but we enjoyed every minute.

We loved the chef’s tasting menu with the wine pairing. It was interesting, fun, tasty and the wines were spectacular. The wine pours were even hefty. It was a memorable time.

The service was great. However, my meal was over salted & overall food quality was truly disappointing.

We thought that the food was going to be as great as, for example the Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Las Vegas. Unfortunately the food was salty for the most part and some of the servers looked frantic and lost at times. Not what we were expecting for a top French Restaurant.

A Shadow of the old French Room. Celebrated Anniversary here over 20 years. Very disappointed with the new French Room. Food, service and atmosphere not close what it used to be. Sad to see the Dallas Landmark change to a very average restaurant. We’ll be looking for a new place to celebrate. Very Sad!!

The renovated French Room is more of an experience than a meal. Impeccable service, incredibly rich 7 course French meal in a (new) old school Dallas institution. Diners are an interesting mix of date nighters, old-money regulars and older doctors with their young girlfriends. We loved both the food and the people watching.

We went to the French Room for my wife's 40th. It was an immensely enjoyable experience. Service was top notch. Food was excellent. Ambiance was perfect.

The only thing that was subpar was the souffle (mango?). It was too sweet. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Wonderfully romantic evening at one of our favorite restaurants in the US.
We both had the tasting menu and enjoyed every bite. Loved the addition of fresh flowers and live piano music.
Service was excellent and unobtrusive.
Sommelier was friendly and had excellent suggestions.
Can't wait to return.

This was a special Wedding Anniversary occasion that exceeded my expectations. The French Room was ready for my wife and I with a personalized printed menu that acknowledged and celebrated our Anniversary. We were given special seating and the service was exceptional. They all made us feel very special and were attentive to our every need. We hightly recommend The French Room for a special, memorable occasion. Would also recommend staying the night at the Historical Adolphus Hotel. That rounded out a wonderful experience for us!

Went to try the refurbished French Room. Compared to the "old" room, the visit was a complete letdown. Gone is the décor that made the place so special - all has been wiped clean with ivory-colored paint and fabric. No remaining awesome ceiling paintings, gilded everything, huge pot of fresh flowers in the center. The wait staff is no longer allowed to place your napkin in your lap when you first sit down. They wear all gray suits with open shirt collars; no more black and white with ties. The whole experience reflects a new philosophy of ambience and service, more modern and youthful, but without the charm of the past. The menu is entirely new, and the food was great. But I miss the charm...

We have always celebrated special occasions at the French Room! I had my wedding reception in the Grand Ball Room 37 years ago! We love the French Room and were very disappointed last Saturday night. The food was ok. The minute I entered the room, something didn’t feel right. It used to make you feel so special! It seemed so sterile this visit. The waiters have to push around a tackie white cart with wheels that seem to “fight each other”! The is not the French Room experience I remember. You don’t know how sad it made my husband and I feel. Sorry, I doubt we will be back
