After a very long day touring SMU, we enjoyed a good meal at Central 214 which is right off the lobby in the Palomar Hotel. Great cocktails, wonderful service. The menu has something for everyone. Our grand daughter enjoyed the Tomato Basil soup and grilled cheese, my husband's steak was perfectly prepared, and I enjoyed the roast chicken breast with seasonal vegetables. The next morning we enjoyed breakfast. Nothing fancy, but prepared fresh and great service.

While staying at the Palomar in Dallas, I had the opportunity to dine at Central 214 (their in-house restaurant) for dinner and breakfast. Although the menu was limited and a bit pricey, their beef brisket was amazing and could be as good as I've had! Breakfast was good, as was the service.

was somewhat disappointed. Boring (and I mean, tasteless) salad--how do you make a tasteless salad?), and the dessert was equally sleep-inducing--the "signature", "ugly pug" chocolate cake, was well-named. Just boring. At least the Kobe beef was wonderful. The disappointment was in that the meal started and ended on a disappointing note.

We've been there twice. The first time was blow your mind good. The second time was during restaurant week and we just weren't as impressed. Good cocktails. Excellent green tomato pie.

I was staying at the Palomar and went here for a drink one night and breakfast the next morning. The service is slow. They didn't have grenadine for my drink which was very weird. They don't have "breakfast" just brunch so the selection for breakfast is limited.
