Went here with a large group on a Saturday night and had a great meal! I did not hear of any complaints from anyone in our group. When the courses were served, there was a little confusion as to who got what but that was resolved quickly. Service was fantastic and the food was delicious.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at City Cafe with an early dinner. The meal was superb, and the staff was incredibly attentive. We were even served a special dessert to top off our evening, Highly recommended!

Had lunch there today. We do this at least once a month. They have a new chef and while I like the last one, this chef has imagination and style. His food is nothing short of perfect. Could not have enjoyed it more. Karim, the owner/host, always has a wonderful wine to recommend, usually something new, something we had not... More

Spent the evening at City Cafe. Easy booking!! Great atmosphere and very personal service. Food was amazing. Would recommend the pork chop and filet mignon salad. Waitress Charlotte was outstanding! Could do with larger choice of beer options Will be back for sure!! Valet a bonus

Had lunch with 3 others at City Cafe. As always top notch food and a very nice atmosphere. The service was just right allowing time to talk and enjoy a reasonable pace. Parking even with a valet is a bit of a challenge but acceptable

What you miss most in Dallas with the sprawling chain and concept restaurants is the local, family owned restaurant. City Café offers this is perfect fashion. Greeted at the door by Karim, the owner and host, escorted to your table, offered a great glass of Argentine Malbec all led to a very relaxed and enjoyable evening. The food was great,... More
