The hotel Adolphus is located within walking distance of shops like Neiman Marcus and others, it excels in its food and high tea at 5 p.m. The French Room, their main dining room, makes you think you are in a hotel in Paris, very well decorated and the food is magnificent, the service impeccable.

Although the physical surroundings and decor can be a little intimidating, this is a friendly, well-run restaurant. The food is excellent and the service beyond reproach If you haven't been, you should try it--as long as you're not a kid!

Wonderful food and excellent service. I chose the fixed price dinner and the foie gras appetizer was the very best I've ever tasted. At the end of dinner, we were given a gift bag with a box of chocolates. Also, when I inquired about the wine that came with my entree, our server took the time to write out the... More
