Steak wasn’t cooked properly, kinda weird for a high class steak house. Salad was a Caesar, it was for my guest, was told it was “mayonnaisey.” Atmosphere was great and vibes were cool. Had a delightful time and enjoyed myself. My favorite item was the cookie that came with my espresso. Might try another time, but this time if I wasn’t happy with food product I would ask politely to try something else. I was with guests so I just enjoyed myself without worrying about my meal experience.

Our first server was quite the drill Sargent and rushed us through our order and our wine selection questions. We were in a big party area and he was much more concerned about the parties around us and wanted to rush us through our evening. It was our wedding anniversary and quite disappointing. We did ask to move and we were moved into the room with the fire place. That experience was wonderful and will bring us back. Our second server from the even Samantha was amazing. She had other wine suggestions for us, took an interest is what our likes and dislikes were and we had an amazing finish to our meal. She turned our whole experience around and we will be requesting her on our future visits. Treat that one well because she was amazing!

Recommendation from extensive wine list was a gem. Prime ribeye was incredibly flavorful. Au gratin potatoes were rich and delicious. Chocolate turtle pie and chocolate marshmallow mousse were so indulgent. Service was friendly and professional.

both of us were nondrinkers this evening. difficult to have a steak without a bold red
we begin with crab cakes: delicious. I chose my favorite: a peppercorn steak which was perfect. unfortunately the skillet potatoes were very disappointing. dessert was a simple lemon sorbet: my choice
final score: probably 88/100.

Its arguably the best steakhouse in Texas, and by default, probably the world. They do everything really really well and deserve all the accolades they get. But make no mistake, its "a steakhouse" on all levels. Tons of older guys who are in Dallas for conventions, etc. The wine list rivals any in Texas, but frankly, its way too big. I love great wines and I am knowledgeable. But it takes me 30+ minutes to really peruse the list - something that delays getting the wine and delaying food orders. If you go, I strongly encourage you to peruse the wine list a day or two in advance and make your choice so that you can order upon being seated.

Our server was Casey and she was excellent and a true professional. The duo filet was amazing with the lump crab and the port wine reduction with shitake mushroom sauce...wow. The service from the entire wait staff and the manger was excellent we had a glass of wine spill at the table and they reset the table in 3 minutes it was quite a well rehearsed show that rivals an Indy pit crew. This is of the best restaurants that I visit and I dine all over the country. The wine list is amazing even if you are drinking wine by the glass. For the Bourbon drinkers they have an amazing selection that includes Weller 12 and all of the Pappy's...Wow.

We live in Ohio and this was the restaurant my husband wanted for his birthday dinner. Mandy and Alberto provided warm, excellent service! The A5 Wagu was a spectacular meal! We look forward to our next visit!

Service, ambiance, available wine and drinks are all outstanding. The two steaks we had (bone in ribeye, porterhouse) were good, but not outstanding. We had eaten at Town Hearth a few weeks before, and both of us preferred our steak from there. I've also had an on-par steak from Saltgrass, which is substantially cheaper.

Steak is incredibly subjective, and we definitely enjoyed our time there, but if we had to define Papa's with two questions; Was the meal worth $350? - and - Does it deserve to be the #1 rated steak restaurant in Dallas - the answer the both is no.

Best meal I’ve ever had. I was expecting to have some nice steaks, but what I got was an out of this world experience. I’ll definitely come back next time I’m in town.

The food was amazing. The only thing I can criticize is that we were the first reservation of the night and they seated us staring at the kitchen. We were looking forward to a great date night and most of the night I was staring at the kitchen watching them make pastries. The food was amazing but the seating should have been saved for someone that didn't make reservations two weeks in advance. We were at the dallas location. The waiter was excellent, Just wanted a better table.

Went here for Valentine's dinner. The front of the restaurant was pretty loud, so I was glad we were sat in the back where it was quiet. The food was excellent, although our server forgot to put our appetizer order in (probably didn't need it anyway). I had a 114 oz pepper steak, my wife had the 10 filet. Both were cooked precisely to order. The sides of asparagus and crab mac and cheese were great!! Service was excellent. Prices are around $100 per person, so be prepared for that.

They overcooked my steak to start which to me was fine. Wade our server made it up to us in a huge way by bringing some Port for the desert and then a manager and bar manager got involved and brought us a flight tasting of bourbons. My wife and I have never been treated so wonderfully as this team and the communication of all members was amazing. The steak was amazing as well as they even brought us an uncooked steak to take home to make up for the well done original. Highly recommend and kudos to the entire team for going way above and beyond to make my wife and I experience a once in a lifetime experience.

The dinner and service was top notch. One the best New York strips I've ever had. The noise level on the other hand was way above what I expected. I could barely hear my girlfriend talk which is not usually a problem with her. Our table was too close to the kitchen/staff area. I recommend reserving a table towards the front of the restaurant.

Alex was phenomenal! Most waiters/waitress are like robots, because it's a job that is performed day in and day out. Not Alex, he was very attentive and his energy was extremely warm. Even the person who brought out my steak, took pride and making sure it was prepared to my liking. He seen the look on my face and knew right away I wasn't please, kudos to you sir! Alex, made sure he called me and my mom by our names and his signature drink wasn't so bad either. This was my mom first experience at your restaurant and she was impressed...I think the New York Cheesecake sealed the deal.

Even though I made a reservation, my party of two still had to wait thirty minutes. This defeats the purpose of making a reservation, there is an expectation to be seated upon arrival within 5-10 minutes, give or take. If you do not arrive in a timely fashion to your reservation, you will get bumped.

Pappas Bros. was excellent! This restaurant certainly exceeded my expectations. The food was amazing! I shared my leftovers with my mother and she asked, "Where did they get such tender cows?" I will dine at Pappas Bros. again in the near future.

The one thing I took issue with was the main dining room had a small TV in the corner playing sports. With several open tables, they set us at the table with a small TV just overhead. The volume was not on, but it still became distracting. Now I probably should have asked to change tables, but unless they moved us to a different part of the restaurant you would still be distracted by flashes of bright colors from a corner of the room. For me a simple fix would be to remove the TV from the main dining hall, and if anyone wanted to see sports sit them somewhere close to the bar.

We celebrate all our special occasions here because the food is great and service is outstanding! Our server, Luis is wonderful to help make all our visits there exceptional. Food is consistent for the most part. This was the first time I had to send my steak back to the kitchen. Once corrected, it was great as usual. Definitely recommend this restaurant for all.
