The French Room is just that. A room decorated with French (Louis XV) decor off the lobby of the Adolphus Hotel. I was seated off to the side of the room with my companion, which made for an intimate evening. For French food lovers, this is the place to go in Dallas. Make sure you reserve well in advance. I...

Most don't think of this place for a grown up meal. But you should start here. Its not the big and dark overcrowded steakhouse. Far from it, this is an elegant night out. You feel like your eating in Versailles....quite and catered to. plenty of separation between tables, waiter in white dinner jackets. Not a big menu, but powerful and... More

It begins from when you arrive and the Maitre d'Hotel Jim Donohue seats you. He is reminiscent of all the best European restaurant hosts. Our service was provided by Connie and Jose. Jose... More
