This was my first time at brunch. I was slightly disappointed with the food. Oh, it was good, but it seemed as if it had sat in the kitchen for a while. The eggs didn't seem as freshly cooked eggs are and the potatoes were not hot like they had just come out of a skillet. My other visits to Restaurant 506 were both very good. Maybe it was just brunch?

We had a lovely dinner for a large party of 7. Our waiter was attentive and the meal was very good. We enjoyed the extras including amuse bouche and palate cleansers. The inn and restaurant are beautiful and our dinner was quiet and elegant. One guest raved about the flourless chocolate cake and claimed it the best dessert she had ever eaten.

I'm guessing the staff was overwhelmed or something on this night. There is no way any restaurant could stay open in DFW with an experience like we had. Spotty, horrible service. Server had attitude. My wife's dinner was 1/2 cooked, half of the tables in the dining room never got their entrees before we had to leave.

As a fine-dining establishment, we encourage our guests to take their time so they can enjoy the full experience of dining in our restaurant. When a guest only allots a short amount of time for dining and then orders multiple courses, our ability to provide a superior experience is lessened. Hopefully in the future, you have a more relaxed timeline in which to come dine with us so we can show you what we are all about! Thank you for your feedback and the opportunity to improve.

I've been to Restaurant506 several times and have always had a great experience. I love that it's always quiet enough to have a conversation without yelling. The food is not just a meal but an experience and the portions are not insanely large. The waitstaff is always spot on. It's not inexpensive but I still highly recommend this restaurant.

What a perfect evening for celebrating two birthdays. Our out of town guests were very impressed with our choice of restaurants.
The food was perfect.
Patrons at a table in an adjoining dinning room were quite LOUD, but left early in the evening; so not too bad.

I love Eggs Benedict and so few restaurants get it right but 506 nailed it! Everyone else at my table liked their food too. The restaurant is beautiful and not as small or crowded as I had feared.
The service was curiously impersonal though. The waiter barely interacted with us, which is ok; we weren't there to be entertained. But when I made the reservation I did mention it was my birthday and i would have liked a happy birthday wish.
The worst thing was that he consistantly let my coffee cup get empty. He never refilled it once without my having to catch his eye and request it.
This was serious enough to me that it took away from everything else.
I really expected better.

Love this restaurant! The food is always excellent with varied selections offered to meet anyone’s taste. The service is always the best and the ambiance is one of understated elegance. Plus, it is quiet enough in order for you to have a conversation with all seated at your table. All of this is offered at a reasonable price.

Restaurant506 had been on our bucket list. We arranged to meet friends for restaurant week only to realize that had expired the week before. Nevertheless, the experience was delightful, the ambiance quaint, the staff friendly, the service responsive and the food delicious. Already have recommended Restaurant506 to a friend and colleague.

Celebrating my wife's birthday. We both tried something new that we had not eaten at 505. First I chose the Tuna Tower....now my favorite dish ever. Her beet salad was delicious. I ordered the Beef Ravioli. It was good but one had just the right amount of beef and the other three had very little, thus the value degrade. My wife was hoping for the scallops, but since they had been taken off the menu she chose the blank Salmo then and said it was okay. The service was superb, ambience great, and we loved the quiet not have to yell dinner. We will return but hope that the scallops return to the menu and something besides asparagus and brussels sprouts are not the main veggie.

The food and service was exceptional....the Brie leeks were something I will dream of. The wine we had was amazing and absolutely everything from the meal was fabulous. My only complaint was that we were in a small room with four other tables while we tried to celebrate our anniversary and several of the tables never got the message about fine dining etiquette versus rowdy bar level of speaking. When someone is less than a foot from you, no reason your voice should hit that decibel. In hindsight, I wish we had been moved to another room....but thankfully the company, food, and service more than made up for a few rude tables. Highly recommend, just be mindful of where you are seated if you are looking for intimate enjoyment.

This is a MUST on your list anytime you are in the DFW area, It's also an event venue for fabulous occasions and they have an outdoor venue for weddings along with rooms in the house and separate
guests houses behind the home. It's a 2 acre lot 4 blocks from downtown Arlington/ATT Stadium and
Ranger Stadium. We went for my bday brunch on a Sat (Sun. is busier) and we made reservations - highly
recommend. The home is just fabulous in it's manicured outside areas, inside is beautifully decorated along with the rooms named after composers and the Van Gogh Bar is a jewel. The dining area perfection and the tables all done up in linens. Fireplace in the main dining area, high ceiling and chandeliers - pale yellow walls and wooden floors. Hugh main dining room - Monet Room - is perfect for
16 or so people seated at 1 table. Graciously greeted, expecting us so quickly seated. Wait staff professional and 5* from start to finish. Eggcellent Brunch choices and beautifully presented - hot temperature and there was a burger option. I so enjoyed my b-day w/friends and it was over the top.
Gave us an informal tour of the grounds and encouraged us to look around. There is a spa across the street but we didn't make it over there. Highly suggest you check it out on-line and read all the wonderful reviews that have been written up on this Inn. Congrats to SH Inn and Conf. Ctr- you guys rock.

It was good. Service could have been a little better but it was obvious our waiter got some other tables that were being a bit demanding. The food was very good - we went for brunch. Mimosas were great as well. I’ll definitely go back.
