Luxury dining. Great place for a special occasion. Not inexpensive. Lobster is great. You can easily get an appetizer and a salad and feel you had a great meal. Walk from the hotel Crescent.

I have to say it is a very nice place, but I was very disappointed with my food. I order lobster bisque to start and it was cold. I cannot eat cold soup !! I asked the waitress to please warm it up and then it came in the right temperature. Then for my entry I had stripped bass top... More

Although we did have to wait a while, we loved our experience! One of the managers came by... Noah I think? And was very friendly. David was our server and he was great. We will be back!

We ate in the lounge area where they had live music. The crab mac n cheese is phenomenal!! Also, the chilled seafood tower and the lobster bisque were decadent! Drinks were ok...not a great cosmo, but a much better amaretto sour. The atmosphere was chic and dressy.

I used to come here almost every trip to Dallas. A couple or 3 years ago they moved into the new version built on the rear area of the parking lot. It is new and shinny but doesn't have the same character. The food and service is still excellent but the ambiance is lacking.

There's a very very noisy downstairs bar but you are shown the way upstairs to a comfortable dining room (or maybe rooms) by one of the many handsome and pretty staff wearing secret-service type earphones. The fish is very good but there seems to be a tendency to over pepper some things, which I've noticed elsewhere in Texas too. I... More

We love this place. Great atmosphere, great service, great food and drinks. Would definitely go there for all celebrations from now on. We had Thanksgiving there one year. Best Thanksgiving dinner ever.

Thank Sandy B
