“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Went with my daughter-in-law today for lunch and stumbled upon Rise. I had been wanting to try it out so it made our decision easy. We walked in and were immediately thrilled with the ambiance. All the great little touches that make your dining experience just a bit better!

The waitstaff was great, happily offering their opinions about various selections as we asked - and they didn't steer us wrong! One of us ordered the corn and green chili soufflé, while the other had the sundried tomato. Both were excellent. A real surprise was the bread served with our lunch - FABULOUS! Small baguettes served hot with butter.

After our entrees we shared a pumpkin soufflé for dessert. Now, I'm not a pumpkin pie fan AT ALL and was thinking I'd try a bite. It was awesome! Light and fluffy and not heavy like pie at all. Scrumptious!

We'll be back! Soon!

“Something Different and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had a great meal at Rise No. 1. It was nice to find a place that serves something really different from most other restaurants. Their menu is predominantly comprised of souffles.

The food was excellent and our server (Jennifer) was great. She was cheerful, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the ham and gruyere souffle and my husband had a spicy sausage souffle. Both were delicious, although I would have liked something served with the souffles (perhaps a small side salad) that would have cut the richness.

The chocolate souffle was awesome, largely thanks to the accompanying chocolate sauce. It was really delicious. Rise No. 1 will be on our regular rotation when visiting Dallas and we will always ask for Jennifer when we go.

“Imaginative Restaurant with Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Our second visit was as rewarding as the first. Imaginative Bistro cuisine featuring excellent souffles of all kinds. Service is always friendly and attentive. We never miss Rise when in Dallas.

“Absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

When you walk in, the atmosphere is nothing short of amazing. Low lighting, and adorable vintage decorations. The food was delicious, but was too full to try dessert. Will definitely return!
