Steak
The highest quality Texas prime beef is the main focus at The Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse but its legendary for its extensive wild game selection, and many of those same animals roam freely over our 48,000 acre ranch and namesake near Kerrville, Texas. For those in the mood to try something out of the ordinary, The Y.O. offers venison, elk, wild boar, game birds, and our signature dish, the Buffalo Filet Mignon. Most of the beef at The Y.O. is local Texas Black Angus beef and hand cut in house. We employ a method very similar to the one the ranch hands have been using for more than 125 years.

Thomas and our other waiter were fantastic. Little bit sad that the creme brulee was sour, but the rest of the food was so good that it more than made up for it.

This was the best meal we have had in Dallas. The wild game trio and filet was delicious! The fried cheese appetizer was the best ever! Our waiter did an excellent job!

We went to Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse on the way to a hockey game, so we were there early in the evening (5 p.m.) and the restaurant was not too crowded. We were seated right away and service was friendly and attentive. My husband and I both ordered steaks, which we thought were so delicious! The sides were large and could be shared (we ordered two and had a hard time finishing them). If you go here, you should definitely try the Nashville Hot Fried Oysters as an appetizer - so good! We were very happy that we chose Y.O. Steakhouse for dinner on our night in Dallas.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary on Friday night with our toddler. They were very accommodating as we were running late for our reservation and I love places that accommodate little ones. The ambiance was great, very down to to earth. The ladies at the hostess stand were so welcoming upon entry. The managers walking around were nice and took the time to check in on us. Wine selection was great. My only minus of a star comes from a few small things...
The salad I ordered as an appetizer, i didn’t like it, I took two small bites and pushed it to the side, the server didn’t seem to care to inquire as to why there’s a whole salad gone to waste I told him I didn’t like the dressing he said okay and picked it up to toss it. My venison chop was supposed to be medium it was rare like raw in the middle they were happy enough to take the piece back to cook it more. However, once you’ve put an open piece of meat on the flame and re-presented it, the juiciness and flavor are gone. This was the thing I was most excited for I didn’t want to complain so I just bagged it up to go. My little guy ate it for lunch the next day. I hope I will be able to try it again, the way it’s intended.

We both ordered the mixed grill, which I highly recommend. Bison was really tender and so was the quail. The bottle of wine we ordered was stellar, great recommendation. Lastly, the bill took a little longer than I would have liked, but I have a toddler some people don’t understand that 5 minutes of waiting for the bill after dinner with a little one feels like 15 minutes, they became restless and delirious.

Value for what you spend is ok. For a dinner for 2 people. App, entree, dessert, bottle of wine, etc I’d say your looking at between $300 to $400. Now, if I was able to enjoy the salad and venison chop I paid for I would have been ecstatic, not sure if I’d chose this spot as an anniversary place again, but I could see my self eating here for an on the whim dinner night.

It was our first time dining at YO. It was buzzing with business, which was great for them but apparently slowed service for us. I could hardly eat the salad due to the vinegary dressing. My filet was amazingly tender but my husband’s bison was so-so. I’m not sure why restaurants want to burn Brussels sprouts these days but that’s the current cooking method and pretty tasteless, also. I doubt we’ll go back.

The service was excellent. Everyone was super helpful and responsive. However, the quality of the food didn't match the good service we received. We ordered the chili and it was cold. We also ordered another serving of macaroni and cheese and the cheese wasn't melted all the way on top. The food, in general, didn't really come out hot. I was surprised by the poor food quality because the restaurant received a high rating on Yelp. That rating was misleading. 2.5 stars.

The appetizers were delicious. How ever when the main course came out my game was not very good at all. The pheasant was amazing. However the Bison was awful and I love Bison. we were seated for a business meeting not away from people and then a very large party was seated right by us. So it made the meeting rather difficult. YO is one of my favorite places to come in Dallas when I am in town on business. However this time it was not what I have come to expect at all.

Our server was amazing I do not know how to spell his name but it was Antineo. He gave us recommendations on dinner, all amazing, he was incredibly kinda and funny. The food was delicious as well. And one who normally doesn’t get desert (and didn’t have any room in my stomach for it.) the chocolate lava cake is a item you can’t leave out.

On the website we were led to believe this was a higher end steakhouse. They have a very detailed dress code. I would say that 80% of the patrons were not dressed appropriately and the place is not very high end inside. The service was good. The bar was way understaffed. The food was okay but not the quality one expects at a higher end restaurant.
