My husband and I visited The French Room for a very special occasion and it was SENSATIONAL! We highly recommend -- the food, the service and everything was beyond our expectations!

The French Room has been highly touted for years and lives up to the accolades it has received. The setting is VERY French and quite elegant. The food is memorable and the service exceptional. Quite pricey but oh so worth the experience.

This restaurant serves wonderful food. But the atmosphere is lacking. This restaurant is in a hotel so that probably accounts for the fact that to use the bathroom you must exit the restaurant, walk down a set of stairs, across the lobby and then find the bathroom - which had roaches. Of course the restaurant can not be responsible for... More

I think the atmosphere was the best part of the restaurant! The ceiling in the restaurant was like the Sistine Chapel and the beautiful fresco contributed to the impeccable ambiance in the French Room in the Historic Adolphus Hotel. The hotel was named after Adolphus Bush of Anheiser-Bush fame! The food and service was just as good. I ordered Ostrich... More

This is the most beautiful restaurant in Dallas, and I have always found the food just as lovely. The dishes are works of art and the service as good as it gets. I cannot fault this place, and I am certain when the renovation is done, it will be even more of an experience.

Although The French Room will be closed for most of 2016, we still dream about our experience at this 5 Star Diamond restaurant. It deserves the highest rating that any resistant can receive.

The food, wine selection, decor, ambiance and most of all, the staff and surprisingly affordable price -- so long you don't have a big tag of wine. Why go anywhere else?
