“Pricey Mother's Day”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Reserved through open table. Did not check the price for the buffet. $59 for very ordinary fare. Salads, tired fruit, a few entrees, a handful of desserts. $10 mimosas. Very overpriced for what was offered.

“Food is great, service has slowed”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I am never disappointed when i dine here. The interior is a bit old school, but not too old school. Unfortunately, the last two or three times we had dinner here, we waited a consider amount of time between our first and second courses. They need to work on this because this place is a gem and I'd hate to put it on my "Do Not Return" list. Some of my favorite dishes are: the Pearl Couscous Carbonara (superb!), Shrimp w/ grits, and Black cod. And we can't leave without having the souffle for dessert. The strip mall location makes me feel like it's a little secret due to the contrast of exterior to the interior.

“GREAT White Table cloth eatery”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We loved our evening....pate was great...bone in lamb chop beautiful and deicious...and Silver Oak Cab on the menu at a great price by the bottle...,
desserts were good I am told...creme brule looked good..
the wait staff attentive, but seemed a little over burdened and rushed
I would go back...and looked like a great place for a romantic evening as well..,
great time overall....
Valet shuts down early...9...but valet came to tell us and leave our keys...so very thoughtful....

“Good Neighborhood Restaurant”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

You can't tell by the strip center location, but this restaurant has a fixture for over 20 years. High End restaurant that is part of the M Group restaurants (Mi Cocina, Taco Diner). Chris Ward is still wowing customers with his innovative and creative meals. The appetizer Shrimp with jalapeno grits is wonderful! The Crispied Foie Gras is some of the best in Dallas.

The service is great. MAKE RESERVATIONS!

“No drawbacks at all!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Location is off the beaten path but terrific. Easy self park or fast valet park.
Make reservations! Very busy place. Excellent wine list. Nice sophisticated restaurant with fabulous food. Chef is indeed amazing and has a creative flare. You won't be disappointed.
