Have been here before and it is consistently an excellent experience. The beautiful painting on the ceiling is like being in Paris. White glove service.

A must whenever you're in Dallas. Be warned: definitely call a week or so ahead. Everything from the tasting menu to the sommelier was absolutely exquisite. My family and I have been going to the French Room for a couple of years now and each time surpasses the last. The wait-staff is kind to a fault and the food is... More

Perfect for that very special dinner. Ambiance and decor were exceptional. Quite pricey but not a place you would do often visit - savor for a special birthday/anniversary, et al.

The French Room is a Dallas institution. The service is incredible and the food excellent but if you are looking for a casual dining experience this is not it.

It was as though we were teleported back to Paris. We walked in and forgot that we were in Dallas. From the ambiance to the food, everything was stupendous, and very much like the dinning experiences we had in Paris last year. The service was excellent with our every need being anticipated. We had a Travel Zoo voucher that we... More
