I made a reservation yet when I arrived I was out in the same list/line as walk ins to be seated. Our server did not seem to know the menu very well, he was clumsy and not very service oriented. In my request I indicated it was a business meal and asked for a quiet corner and we were put at a loud table in the middle of the restaurant. Disappointing.

The food was EXCELLENT!

Unique atmosphere. Interesting, highly varied menu prepared and served beautifully. Fun place to come for a special occasion or after a meeting. Great service-constantly refilling water and soft drinks. Even a teen-ager will enjoy the experience!

Elk tacos are to die for! Black eyed pea hummus is amazing. Salads are great, never had something here I didn’t like. Only draw back is the wine selection by the glass.

The service was great. However, the area where we were seated was comfortable. We couldn’t be moved to a different area since the place was packed. Idk I would suggest not offering a tight space for a group of five. I made reservation for 830. We were seated on time but I would’ve waited for a more spacious accommodation. Especially for a table of five.

Beautiful restaurant. I found the menu limited and pricey. I had the snapper and it was a large, thick piece of fish. It came with coleslaw and I'm glad that the waitress asked if that was okay. I substituted the brussels sprouts instead. My husband had the meatloaf which many reviews raved about. He said it was OK. Overall I wasn't that impressed with the food. I don't live in Dallas but won't go back while in town. Looks like a good place to go for groups. Our waitress was great.

OMG this place is sooo busy. I went for lunch and had to park a long distance away. They really need to have a valet parking option. Server was great. I had the chicken fried steak, wouldn't recommend it. One friend had the beef fajitas, those were great the other had the cobb salad and that was good too.

I work in the area and have lunch here about 2 times a month, my experiences have always been good; however, this visit was well below average. 2 of the 6 orders were wrong and the individual who brought the food seemed to be mad at us that there was a problem. They finally brought the right food but they need to make fewer mistakes and then respond positively when they do.

My husband and I reconnected with another friend-couple over an early dinner. The noise level was a little daunting; I felt like we had to yell to hear each other. But it was obvious that everyone in the restaurant was having a very good time. The food was exceptional; I had the pork chop for dinner with the faro and chard while my husband relished the prime rib. However, I was not impressed with the carrot cake for dessert. We were ecstatic that our favorite wine was available - Cakebread Cellars 2014 Cabernet. I will definitely recommend The Ranch for a high-end casual dining experience.
