Romantic dining room with excellent service. Strong wine offering to pair with the chef's creations. Quiet and a pleasant view of the gardens added to the wonderful experience

We were a party of 4 on a Friday night, and the restaurant was not full. I have eaten here several times in the past, in the Camron Woods era, but that night the food was not at the same high level. Some dishes were excellent, but others missed the mark. Yes, you should take note that the verve, creativity,... More

We have been to Addison for many wonderful meals so we cautiously, decided to bring the family here for belated Christmas dinner. I say cautiously, because my in-laws are what I would call "super-foodies" (my brother loves food so much he has paid to have a fun day in the kitchen with a Top Chef) UGH - well; Service -... More

We came here three times on our stay at the grand del mar. We had a "bar dinner" a breakfast and a normal dinner. The bar dinner was perfect sliders a bread and meat platter and cocktails. Breakfast was just heaven and dinner was amazing although we didn't manage to finish our entrees after our appetizer. While it is expensive... More

Loved the vegetable risotto, sea bass and duo of beef. Staff was very attentive and great at providing us with quick service as we had two little ones. Can't wait to return!

Came here with family and friends for a birthday celebre. None of us had been here. I just made reservations on-line. Oh wow..it's like going into another world! Thankfully it was a gorgeous day, lows 70's so we could sit on the patio and get the fabulous view. The menu was varied which helped since some in our party are... More

I have eaten here a number of times but last night was a "miss" for me. The food was good but nothing was a stand out. The service was good but even here they were a miss. The room felt even bigger than usual. They should think about updating the place. It is showing its age. The outside dining area... More
