Fine dining "New Mediterranean Cuisine", Championship Steak and Seafood prepared by Chef Gorji in a 7-table romantic restaurant. With emphasis on an enjoyable dining experience, the small space can not accommodate young children. There are no TVs and the table is yours with no rushing you to seat others. Gorji is a No-Tipping restaurant—the price you see on the menu is what you pay. You do not add a tip on top of it. It has an upscale menu and unique wine selections.

I have already recommended this to place to several people. Gorji is fine dining at its best. The restaurant was very intimate and the atmosphere was wonderful. The owner has his hands in every aspect of the experience and it was a treat getting to meet and speak with him.

The food was fantastic and the wines were excellent. It's pricey, so it won't be a regular visit, but we will absolutely be going back.

From what I understand, Michelin doesn't rate restaurants in Texas. Gorji is the restaurant that should get Michelin into Texas. Simply incredible all around.

If you are looking for expertly prepared food in an intimate setting where the chefs personality is as much a part of the foods seasoning as the bright sumac he sprinkles on his expertly chosen fresh vegetables then you have found the right place. Every course, every ingredient is carefully weighed for its flavor profile and place in the meal and then matched with a cooking method to allow each individual component to sing its own song but also add its voice to the chorus of the plate. The price is steep when you go all in with wine, three courses and dessert (don't shy away from a nice glass of port as a capper) but worth it. This is a place that you should mark down for a revisit at least twice a year (and more if you have the budget).

The chef made us fee at home. I’m a vegetarian and he modified a dish for me so I get I was eating a full meal and it was not something that was an afterthought. He was personable and hospitable. Our food was wonderful. It’s a no tope restaurant which was a plus. I highly recommend.

If you are looking for a quiet dinner with food so good you stop conversation mid-sentence then look no more. Chef Gorgji makes food that is fantastic and the hospitality is literally the best I have experienced anywhere in Dallas. This is a place to celebrate and be celebrated.

I can’t believe we’ve lived in Dallas this long and have never experienced this exceptional restaurant. The ambiance was sophisticated and quiet, the service was meticulous yet welcoming, the wine list was interesting and varied and the food was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious.. If you are looking for loud and rambunctious, this is not the place for you. But if you want a lovely, elegant, and memorable evening, you really need to visit Gorji’s. We are looking forward to our next visit.

The food is incomparable to anywhere else in Dallas. The chef is hands on and cares about every guests experience. The restaurant only has a handful of tables so the noise level is perfect and the atmosphere never feels cluttered or overwhelming. I would suggest Gorji and his restaurant to anyone and everyone.

Absolutely Amazing! Charming, personable, and delicious - our time at Gorji's was a definite memory maker for us. I was hesitant to leave a review because I don't want to make it harder for me to get a table when I want! Gorji only has 7 tables so if you want to go, reserve early! The best steak I have ever had.

Glad we tried Gorji's ! Loved the quaint atmosphere - wanted a quiet/ romantic venue for a date night and my wife was very pleased. Not to mention the food/ wine was outstanding, Gorji makes it fun and has very creative dishes. Had a great Bordeaux he recommended - all in all a great dining experience- We will be back! Highly recommend Gorji !

i can't believe that I did not find this jewel earlier. It has been around for more than 16 years. Best date night spot, if you like to eat at your own pace and not be rushed. there are only 7 tables and each table gets booked once per night -- so take your time and enjoy your date night. We loved it.

The atmosphere at Gorji’s was absolutely perfect for a romantic date night. The food was outstandingly cooked, and seasoned to perfection. James, the waiter, was very attentive and knowledgeable. Gorji himself was a presence in the restaurant and not just the chef. He even allowed us to sit and visit while cleaning up. You definitely get what you pay for! The serving sizes aren’t oversized as they are at many restaurants, but the quality is well worth the price.

Great dining experience. Intimate restaurant with 7 tables so you get a lot of personal attention from the chef (Not overbearing/intrusive). Food was outstanding - we will definitely go again.

Absolutely amazing food and service. You can tell the ingredients used in the preparation of the dishes were obtained from high quality vendors and markets. Moreover, the combination of ingredients used in preparation of the dishes by Chef Gorji was most creative. Unlike any restaurant I have been to and easily one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

The food was fantastic with wonderful flavors. I also discovered a delicious new wine that I didn't know about. The chef explained how he chooses the unique wines for their list to complement his style of mediterranean food. A great place for a romantic dinner.

Fantastic service, even better food and a unique menu all make for a remarkable experience at Gorjis. You know you can expect great service when the owner personally calls you to confirm your reservation. Tried the lamb brain pate appetizer to experience something different. It is made in house by Gorji and was very good. Salads were unique and full of flavor. Entree’s were venison and lamb. Both were cooked to perfection and outstanding. Small staff but very attentive; not intrusive, but never lacking for anything. Final note, this is a “no tipping” restaurant, so even though the prices are a little steep (in line with other fine restaurants) you end up saving by not adding another 20 percent to your tab. Would definitely recommend this spot for your special occasion.
