Fantastic Easter lunch. Champagne brie soup is a staple there and so very good. I had Steak Diane, fabulous. Followed by Godiva white chocolate cheesecake. Yummy. Wait staff is superb. Don't miss this gem. We've been going there for about 40 years. Very quaint and wonderful.

This is a gem of a place. The best place I have been in a long time. The service and food is by far the best I have ever had. I really can't stress enough how great this place is. Iris and gabby at the bar as well as the owners that greet you at the door treat everyone like they are important and worth a million bucks. I took my wife Sydney there for her birthday and her friend Ebony and they were so impressed by the food and the service. Plus they have live piano music which relaxes you while you enjoy the night... so awesome.

Best Regards,
Mike Eldridge

Food was superbly prepared and perfectly presented. Waiter, JD, polite and helpful; no rushing us through our courses. Escargot in a cream sauce, salad with pear and beets both delicious. Rack of lamb medium rare cooked to perfection. Valet parking free. Perfect evening with live pianist.

Been coming here for about 15 years. The quality has never wavered! It's still the best nice restaurant in Dallas. It's been in business for over 40 years (43, maybe?), which really says something in Dallas's fickle restaurant scene. In fact, our waitress said she first met the owner when she was 12 months old! Her mother has always been a fan of the restaurant, and she even had the famous champagne-brie soup when she was pregnant with her. Our waitress was literally built from that soup!

We were visiting Dallas from OKC and looking for a nice place to have a romantic dinner date. This place could not have been more perfect!! Low lit, with accent lighting that sets the mood, quiet and cozy with small intimate tables. There was a live piano player that provided the background music. The waiter was very helpful, attentive, and kind. We will be making trips from OKC just to eat at this restaurant!

Our server, Persia, was fantastic. Friendly, accommodating, conversational, informative...just lovely. The ambience in the back room by the fireplace was excellent. The restaurant in general is very cozy, old world and romantic. The mussels appetizer was superior. The main meal choices we made were not as good. The lemon sole had too much heavy sauce on it. The steak was okay. We will return but try different main meals.

We chose this for a special anniversary meal based on the good reviews. We found it to be okay, but nothing really special.The valet parking and service was nice. The restaurant was darker and louder than we expected. We were seated in the bar area; perhaps the other area was nicer. The piano was nice. Food was good, but not anything exceptional. We enjoyed the champagne brie soup the most. The beef burgundy had a good flavor, but the meat wasn't very tender. The seafood dish (with lobster, crab, scallops and shrimp) was tasty, but had way more mushrooms than expected - about half mushrooms and half seafood. Sides were mediocre at best - garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus with carrots. The vegetables were very firm and crunchy. I was surprised that the bathrooms have not been updated. They felt small and cramped with flimsy wooden doors. Overall, I would say it wasn't a bad dining experience, just not what I would expect based on the price.
