The staff was endlessly gracious and professional, and the piano was divine. While my husband and I strike an unconventional impression, you would never know it given the decorum and demeanor of the staff. My Tom Collins was without a doubt one of the best I’ve ever tasted. Both the bar and dining room were pristine and immaculate (though admittedly darker than my poor-at-best eyesight could manage) and the atmosphere at once exclusive and welcoming. While I could write an entire novel about the food, suffice it to say there isn’t a penny wasted that’s been spent at St. Martin’s. We enjoyed quite literally every single bite and sip. It was a sumptuous, intimate addition to our date night and we thoroughly recommend it to anyone, whatever that may be worth from a stranger on the internet.

We were pleased with our dinner at St. Martin's. We have been there before, and it was enjoyable then. The service was prompt and attentive without being overbearing. I had the mussels which were very good, the French Onion soup which was excellent, and the Steak Diane for dinner. The steak was good, but not outstanding. For dessert the cheesecake was excellent. I found the wine list offered a good variety, and we went with the Rutherford Hill Merlot which does not disappoint. My wife had a very good Caesar salad, the Beef Bourguignon which was very good. She had the chocolate mousse for dessert and enjoyed it very much. I do recommend St. Martin's.

As always, the food was served piping hot and was fresh, and the service was excellent. The one thing that just wasn’t great was the spacing with the tables. I guess we are at 75% dining now, but by the time we left our table I could literally touch the back of the person behind me. I would have preferred that they only seat every other table. For this reason, I probably won’t come back until vaccinations are available more widely. But still a neighborhood gem.

As is always the case, St Martin's provided the perfect venue for Valentine's dinner. I have been eating there for the entire 43 years it has been open. It has been outstanding for that entire period. It is New York style dining with the same wait staff that you can count on for exquisite service.

St. Martin's has been a favorite of ours for over 40 years! We've celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and just because and always have an amazing experience. The food, wine, service and atmosphere are second to none. We are so happy St. Martin's has survived COVID and look forward to celebrating many more special (and everyday) occasions there.

The atmosphere was lovely; very romantic. Unfortunately the food was really bad. I ordered the duck a l'orange and it was appalling. It was extremely bland and lacked that hint of crispiness that's so nice in duck. The sauce tasted like flour; there was definitely no orange flavor. The vegetables were nice. Overall, very disappointing.

Me and my bf absolutely loved our experience here! The food was amazing, they had live piano and our server was awesome! My only complaint is that the restaurant closes at 10pm but the kitchen closes at 9pm. We had a 8:45 reservation and we were running about 10minutes late. The hostess told us to get there quick because the kitchen would be closed...it was 8:55 when we called and we were so shocked. We debated going somewhere else in the area but it being late on a Friday, it would’ve impossible. We took a chance and walked in at 8:57, luckily we were served anyway.

Ask for the room further inside with the big chandelier, perfect for a romantic evening. Restaurant staffs are friendly and the food is above average.
Overall would recommend it for casual or upscale get together.

We’ve been going to St. Martin’s for many years now. They always greet you like family whether you’re a newcomer or repeat regular, which encompass a lot of patrons. The food is wonderful, love the champagne Brie soup. If you want a real-life “Cheers” it’s St.Martins

Everything about St. Martin's is first class: the service, food, atmosphere, piano player, and friendly staff. It's always consistent. We've visited many times. We married in Feb. 1976 which is the same anniversary of St. Martin's. Small world. It's one of our favorite restaurants.

We love St Martins. Service and ambiance are top notch. Yeah there may be a better steak out there but it’s hard to beat the atmosphere. Here and Mr. G’s are favorites if you like dressing for dinner and actually having a meal the way you used to be able to have one

We have been trying to have date night for months. Finally just decided to take our 14 and 12 and suck it up.
Food was Amazing, Louis on the piano never stopped. John wasn’t there to welcome you but it didn’t matter.
Our Maitre D/ waiter and friend was there to welcome us and see to everything that we needed.
I don’t know how this place isn’t the hardest place to get into in Dallas.
Price is less than you would ever imagine for dinner, drinks, ambiance.
Thanks for making our night so special, even with kids!!!

We LOVE this place. James (amazing waiter) as always gone above and beyond and tonight was no different! Tips for the current menu; order the Champagne Brie Soup (just do it, I promise you will want 4 more bowls). The chocolate mousse is fantastic and light!
