“Still Savoring the Experience and the Chocolate Souffle...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

I had no idea that we had a gem like this in Dallas. The French Room exceeded any fine dining experiences we've had in NYC or Vegas. I'm still dreaming about the chocolate souffle...but every taste throughout the three courses was a revelation. The service was politely attentive without intruding on the romance that the surroundings invoke. The little touches, like the amuse-bouche, the apple cider sorbet intermezzo, the chocolates after dinner, and the so sweet (as in, touching) banana nut bread to take home for breakfast all made the experience one we will never forget.
Another surprise is the total lack of attitude on the part of every single employee we encountered.
The French Room is now our go-to fine dining experience.

Totally amazing experience, the entire meal just couldn't be beat. It's expensive, but well worth it.

“The French Room deserves its amazing reputation in every way.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2010

The food was a revelation, the service was impeccable, and the sommelier was friendly and knowledgeable. I have heard so many great things about this restaurant, and none of them prepared me for such a wonderful dining experience. I would recommend The French Room to anyone who can appreciate amazing food and one of the most beautiful dining rooms in existence. If you are visiting Dallas, you MUST visit The French Room while you are there.
