We drove 2 hrs to Dallas just to try Charlie Palmer Steakhouse. Very disappointed to get there and they were closed.

I really cannot remember ever having better service. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and prompt. I wish I had gotten his name. This is a luxurious restaurant appropriate for a special occasion. I had fish that was very good and my companions were equally pleased with their steaks. If they had had a smaller ribeye, I would have had steak... More

We had a wonderful evening! The waitress was so nice. We had walked to several museums and showed up in shorts and tennis shoes. Not to worry, they treated us like we were their most important guest of the evening. Steak was excellent with a side of squash. Had just dropped son off at college and they brought us champagne...

We had several meals at Charlie Palmer at the Joule during our stay. Over the course of several servers and chefs, we found both the food and the service to be hit and miss. In the evening, the restaurant and servers are at their absolute best. The food was stunning, the servers quick and attentive. I was particularly fond of... More

I had drinks and tapas at the bar one evening...spoiled by choice. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic, but a little pricey. Dinner or lunch is probably a better choice; next time I'll do both when in Dallas.

Enjoyed an excellent, affordable luncheon experience here after taking part in the ‘Main Street District Architecture Walking Tour’ offered by the Dallas Center for Architecture. The restaurant is located inside the cool Joule Hotel, an easy walk to/from the Dallas Arts District. Solid and sound cookery is found here. Service is more professional here than most restaurants in Dallas. Wine... More

Located in the fantastic Joule Hotel, this highly regarded restaurant gave us cause to "ooh and ahhh!" ~ yet a few items left us cold. On the plus side, the service could not have been better; our waitress was personable, knowledgeable and most attentive. The comments at our table for four regarding the dishes were as follows: "shrimp cocktail, superb;... More

seriously - eat at macdonald's every day during your city stay to save some money and go to Charlie Palmer for your last night in Dallas. Simply amazing food, brilliant service, wonderful environment and a truly great experience. Very pricey, but boy is it worth it!
