Appetizers were the best--even better than entrees. Service superb. The option of a chocolate dessert (not combined with coffee flavor) would have been nice. Will return.

We dined twice during our visit and the food was over the top. The antelope,rabbit enchilada dish was one of the best dishes I have had in along time. I have been dining here since it opened and have never had less than a fabulous meal. How do they do it year after year? Obviously Dean is a master at... More

Sit away from the bar- less noisy. Charming waiter. Excellent drinks from the specialty menu. Best tortilla soup! Lobster chicken fried with fillet outstanding! Desserts were imaginative. Cozy room. Go!

Atmosphere was nice, wait staff was very attentive. Chef Fearing comes out and say hi to everyone. But food was way overpriced for what it was worth.

The Weekend brunch is one of the best in DFW. The fried chicken is amazing and the desserts are very unique and just as good.

We go here regularly when in Dallas as our "special" night out restaurant. The food continues to be superb, wonderful flavors and subtle spices with a southwestern emphasis. The service has always been attentive, however this time (and on our most recent earlier visit 6 months ago) we both felt rushed by the waitstaff, continually being asked if we were... More

Waited on by server Michael - this was a true 7 star experience. Had to wait for 30 minutes over the promised reservation time, but man, totally worth it! Went as a family of 4 to celebrate a birthday. The tortilla soup is a must have - and served perfectly. Halibut as cooked to perfection. Some of the vegetarian entrees... More

The menu on line does not show prices. There is a reason for that: appetizers at $12-24, entrees $48-$55, and the least expensive wines at $50 a bottle. It's expensive… and the food is excellent. There are very unusual combinations of flavors here: tex-mex-asian-French-American fusion, and they work very very well. The service was a bit chaotic and at times... More
