The decor is beautiful and service was outstanding however the food fell flat for the price as there are so many amazing restaurants in Dallas. Worth it for the experience though if you have something special to celebrate and money to spend

I've lived in Dallas for 30 years and had never been here. Now this will be my favorite celebration place. The food and the service are top notch. Each course that comes out has each own little flourish to make it special.

The food is excellent as is the "old world" service you receive from the wait staff, which is attentive, but not overbearing. You will not find a more spectacular setting. and the tables are far enough apart so you feel you are having your own personal dining. A wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion. Also, the souffles... More

The Adolphus Hotel as well as the French Room are showing their age, but still manage to convey a sense of grandeur. The tasting menu was lovely in both flavors and presentation but we both left the restaurant talking about the excellent, friendly service. Excellent overall experience. Highly recommended.

My husband and I have been dinning at the French room for years. The menu and dishes offered are very well done and well presented. The food is excellent. This is a quiet venue for couples or small groups. The service is very good too. We miss the bar next to the restaurant but it is supposed to re-open soon.... More

Impeccable in every way! This is a very nice French restaurant. The service and food are excellent. The dining room is fabulous. It is very expensive, but well worth the treat periodically when you want something extra special.
