My husband and I were in Dallas for a short visit and had heard this was the place to go. The atmosphere is welcoming and intimate but also formal in a really nice way. It’s been a long time since crumbs were cleaned away between...courses. But it isn’t stuffy - Gorji and James welcome each patron and make them feel like invited guests. And then there is the food and wine. There are no words. The creativity and meticulous care given to each item show the love Gorji puts into each morsel. My 68-year-old husband has plenty of steak experience, and he claims this was the best he had ever had. And the wines! What a treat to read about - and then savor. And savor we did - four courses! But we didn’t leave feeling stuffed or bloated - it was all just perfect. Just perfect! Gratitude to our marvelous hosts!!!!More

This was exactly what we were looking for in ambience and we struck a gold mine! We called the restaurant and left a message we received a return call about 15 min. later and we were in that night! Talk about last minute dinner plans!...We were grateful that chef was able to take our reservation. He did not disappoint! We were greeted by Chef Gorji at the door. He seated us and suggested the wine list (this is all he serves to drink besides sparkling water) Now that's a great start! this means there is a very nice wine list. So nice I had trouble deciding on a wine and Chef was happy to help me. My husband and I made different meal choices 3 course meals with desert. Everything came out of the kitchen exactly perfect with no rush between servings. While I waited for my appetizer I took the time to walk around the restaurant to look at Chef Gorji's trophy's and own line of food products! These are found on his website and art Whole foods markets. I went home with a gift too! Thank you Chef Gorji for a memorable wedding anniversary and we are looking forward to more dinners at your restaurant. Bon Appetit!More

I have enjoyed eating at Gorji for more than 10 years. Always a great meal and fantastic service. From the best steaks you have ever eaten to Mediterranean specialties, always top notch! Restaurant seating is back! GO, enjoy!

I don't pretend to know anything about Mediterranean food, or why it's spelled funny, but that restaurant is delicious. I'll be back...and soon.

I was trying to find a new dining experience for our anniversary, and I came across Gorji’s in the best 100 restaurants in Dallas list. Great reviews and the description sounded very interesting, so I decided to give it a try. You definitely have to...be on the ball to be able to get a reservation. They only accept reservations 6 days in advance and they only serve 7 tables per night. I stayed up until midnight and was able to get our reservation in for a Friday night. The hassle was definitely worth it. There were only two people working there, a server and the owner/chef. They were both very personable and attentive and made sure everything came out perfectly. With only 7 tables, this made it a very personal and intimate experience. They have a very eclectic wine list from exotic locales. The wine we chose from Lebanon was outstanding. The menu is small, but still had a good range of food to choose from. I ordered the venison and my wife had the ribeye steak. I have never had such tender meat in my life, and for a meat that is usually gamy and stringy, that is really saying something. I have never taken a bite of food and stopped to say, “Oh my god, that’s good.” But when I took a bite of the risotto, that’s exactly what I did. The price of the meal was comparable to other high end restaurants like Eddie V’s and Capital Grill, but since they don’t accept tips, it actually came out to be much less expensive. All in all, a wonderful experience and I’d highly recommend it to anyone.More

Truly one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in Dallas. Friendly, accommodating and doesn’t try to rush you to eat quick and leave. Enjoyed every dish and service as well.

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Mr Gorji is not only an extraordinary chef but he is also a great host and a very interesting person to meet. The food is delicious and the place is perfect, not so...big to make you feel like a very special guest.More

Superb, simply prepared cuisine in a gorgeous, beautifully lit space (just 7 tables) with top-chef Gorgi himself front and center making sure everyone is happy. (They are). I had the Grapefruit & Goat Cheese Salad and the Poached Rainbow Trout in Yogurt Sauce and my...mouth is watering just thinking about it. Check out his menu! If you haven’t been, you’re missing a high point of Dallas-area cuisine.More

There wasn't much I didn't love about this place. The inside décor was very well done - warm and inviting. Very friendly service, no wait with a reservation (needed as only a few tables). Chef Gorji visits every table several times to make sure you...are pleased. On to the food...We went during Restaurant Week and it was a fantastic menu. The grilled Italian bread with Chef's dipping oil was a great start with our wine. Lots of choices on the wine list and have to say our wine was excellent, but just to warn he has a pretty expensive list (house wines start at $15). The first course, Gorji Escargot (mixed with sliced portabella and Pomodoro sauce) was outstanding. The homemade feta and pomegranates was very good as well. My spouse had the quail and lamb T-bone (with grilled vegetables and gnocchi) for her entrée. Everything on the plate was cooked to perfection, with both meats being tender, juicy and flavorful. It was a bit too much pepper for her taste, but still very enjoyable. I had the prime porch chop with grilled vegetables and gnocchi. This tender and juicy pork chop was the best I have tasted. Those first two courses were as good as any restaurant I have dined. Desert did not disappoint as we had the ice cream topped with mulberries and pistachios, and the homemade Kefir & Medjool Date Butterfly. Both were good, but the Kefir was the best we felt. Perfect match with the cheese and the date. We look forward to our return to Gorji's!More

A friend recommended the restaurant so we decided to try it. The chef was so nice and seated/served us. He always told the prices and selections ahead of time. Food was perfectly proportioned and amazing. Wine delectation was great we had the prefix menu, each...of had something different so we were able to enjoy more than our own dish. The medallions with Gnochi so great. Salad fresh. Avocado appetizer great. It was a great experience. We will be back again.More

I popped into Gorji tonight for dinner on the spur of the moment and, while my meal was very good and beautifully served, I was shocked by my bill. One glass of wine, a tomato salad and a piece of salmon rang up at a...whopping $106 and I ordered the house Chardonnay. While my server was very attentive, it was a little weird to be the only person in the restaurant until one other solo patron arrived. I’m not sure what’s happening at Gorji, but I think it has great potential food-wise but lacks the location or menu to justify the prices. It’s Mediterranean bistro food, not fine dining. If you go, prepare to enjoy your food and be surprised by your bill. I hope this restaurant figures things out.More

The food and service were outstanding. My Copper River salmon was the best that I’ve had. My wife savored every bit of her lamb and quail and our friends loved their steaks. The other nice thing about the restaurant, it was quiet....which is unusual these...days.More

After a warm welcome, the chef delivered menus to us with a complimentary small (shot-size) refreshing champagne cocktail. That detail set the scene for the meal. Everything here is beautifully and exceptionally done. The chef is also the host and server. And the food is...unique too. What would be the usual bread anywhere else is served hot from the grill. Perfectly grilled vegetables arrived with the entrees. The catfish is served on an excellent bed of greens and artichoke hearts with a snappy garlic dressing. And a grilled avocado. Two other unexpected things— the restaurant doesn’t hide any prices and doesn’t accept tips. Judging by the number of happy diners who were greeted like family at the door, Canary has made a splash in this location, which is strip mall gone fancy. And I know what brings people back — remarkable food and true service.More
