Many years ago when I was a 22 yr old brand new to the city of Dallas, my roommate and I scoffed at our dateless Saturday night and took ourselves to what we were told was the best restaurant in Dallas, The French Room. No longer living in Dallas, I do credit that city and restaurants like this one with... More

The French Room is the only restaurant we know of in the DFW area where jackets are required and this is the main reason we chose this restaurant. A guarantee that you will not be surrounded by people in shorts, blue jeans and tennis shoes while you have taken the time and spent the money to dress well. The service... More

The food is excellent, but the service will spoil you. After the French Room, you will find yourself occasionally disenchanted with other restaurants because they don't anticipate your needs and treat you accordingly. It is what I now expect!
