Tucked away on Elm street is this neon sign LOCAL. Very old Dallas hotel now whose lobby is a 5 star fine dining establishment. Wasn't even sure where the front door was but inside we were treated like royalty. Quiet, romantic, just a perfect place...More

We tried this place on a Saturday night at 8pm and it wasn't very crowded (and its a small place). The vibe is very cool, like dining in London, the food was very well prepared (attention to details), and the service was excellent. Details: Vibe:...More

Great menu selection and delicious, well presented food and in a nice ambiance. However, waiting 30 minutes after our reservation to be seated and then having long periods waiting between courses ruined it. Our waitress never asked how our food was, if we wanted additional...More

Great meal with the 7 course meal and they were flexible with the salad selection. Meats are more cooked than I would expect..e.g. salmon was medium well but great toppings and sauces. Great sorbet. The drinks are very pricey for the portion size..err strength.
