I've been a customer almost from the beginning but have never taken the time or effort to write a review. I'm ashamed of myself because I love this place and want to see them be successful. I use this site when searching out new venues so it is about time that I gave them the praise they deser…

My girlfriend and I came here for restaurant week. While I have had drinks at the bar previously, neither she nor I had ever dined here. Upon our entry, Adam, the host, made us feel very welcome and sat us in the main dining room. After our water glasses were filled, we were greeted by Susan,…

2/28/2011 The Old Monk: Dallas I stopped into this East Dallas tradtion completely by chance. A very good friend of mine was trying to medicate the pain of the loss of a very good freind, and invited me along for the ride. I have been here once or twice, as a bartender on the strip, who …

I came out to Dallas to visit my friends for the weekend, when I mentioned I loved chicken and waffles, they told me I had to visit Jonathon's Oak Cliff. Not wanting to miss something good, I took them up on their suggestion. This place has some amazing food and coffee!

Just wrote this review for Yelp! and felt compelled to post it here too. My wife and I have had 3 exceptional date nights at Suze. We finally made our way back to for a 3rd visit last Friday. This place is a vital Dallas institution without equal - very unique! The food, service, and ambienc…

I have been to Kona Grill several times & each time is simply the best. The food is great, the service is great & so are the drinks. The sushi is fresh & the portions are generous. I don't care much for margarita's, but the mango margarita is awesome. You also must try the Rock Cocon…

Great service, great bar selection and awesome food. Nice intimate atmosphere. Bubbies potato pancakes are to die for. Although I wish they would bring back the New Orleans style shrimp dish.
9785 Ferguson RdDallas, TX 75228
Ordered the double cheese burger and onion rings while seated inside in a snug little booth: damn good cheese burger with everything on it. And onion rings had a delightful batter and crisp ones that was equally good. The hand made limeade was equally good. Best burger in Dallas? No, but it sh…

We have breakfast here nearly every morning while in Dallas and from a party of 4, we have never had a dish that we didn't like. We've tried alot, and they are all delicious. The coffee is fabulous, (serve yourself bar) with a lot of variety!

This place is AMAZING, they have a great set up, beautifully decorated,top of the line. The waiters are very friendly and helpful, they are very knowledgeable about all the food and drink selections. We had a party of 20 so we were in a private room with two superior waiters, anything we asked for we received in no more then 1 minute later. The food is outstanding, we had the crab dip, the rock shrimp and the crusted green beans as a appitizer, the rock shrimp wasnt my fav but it was still pretty good, the crab dip and crusted green beans are a must. I had the Turf & Surf as my entree it was outstanding, the steak was cooked perfect with great flavor and the shrimp were HUGE it was served on top of a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and we also had their skillet mac & cheese =D it was all VERYYY good. We finished off dinner with the chocolate cake....OH MY GOODNESS, it is heaven, its pretty rich but its served with a rasberry drizzle its a must also. If you are a martini person the dirty martinis are good to! I have nothing bad to say about this place at all, the valet was very good itself and it was complimentery. (Tips only). When in Dallas Hibiscus is a must, be prepared to spend a good chunck of money but it is allll WELL worth it!
As a foodie who loves eating out, York Street is hard for me to rate. The service is great, the food is great and the atmosphere is great, but relative to the the expense it is hard to judge. It is a very expensive restaurant and they only serve around 10 tables in a cute and cozy house. I try to judge my restaurants on some sort of scale to value because I don't want to end up giving good reviews to all nice expensive restaurants and bad reviews to less expensive restaurants because of course for the expense they can afford better food, service, etc. York Street is a tough one for me. It is a great restaurant and they do basically everything well. Their menu is creative and their food is very good. Their service is very attentive, etc. etc. I think I take it down to a very good 4 stars, because I do feel it is just a little overpriced for even as well as they do do everything. And I also feel that there is at times there is a little ego that bleeds through in their service that comes from patrons consistently telling them how great they are and how cute and cozy and wonderful their restaurant is.
My friend and I wanted to go somewhere new and to a place that was different. All Good Cafe has a very different atmosphere that is eclectic and welcoming. It was avert busy Sunday brunch time but we were seated within 15 minutes. One thing I noticed while waiting to be seated was that many tables were open but there were not enough employees to seat people or clean up tables after a customer left. I order chips/salsa and the migas for my meal. The migas were delivered first, not the chips/salsa which I would expect. The waitress told me she forgot to put in the chips/salsa and apologized. A minute or so later someone else brought me the chips/salsa and he told me I would not have to pay for them and apologized for the mistake. My actual meal was DELICIOUS...the migas were cooked right and the potatoes were amazing. I think they were short staffed on this day, otherwise they would have had better service. I would definitely go back again.
Beautiful and Cozy... This is not a place that will rush to make incredible food... You can tell that everything is scratch made... Yes, everything... If you are looking for quality service, incredible food and an intimate time with friends and family, then I highly recommend this place. My wife is still talking about how great my entree was... Southern Style Shrimp En Croute (shrimp in Herb butter wrapped in scratch made pastry). If I was in Death Row, this would be one if the items on my platter. Yes, I'm a Foodie! I saw the previous review and I wanted to say that on the menus it stats... That if you leave the tip section open on the credit card receipt, it will add 20%... Why write a bad review, because you didn't see it posted and/or didn't want to tip someone... Own it... Write in $0, if that's what you want or tell them what they did wrong...
Greeted by a very sweet older lady. She is the nicest lady and can really move as nd get around. Always cheerful even when there are lines out the door! The food is great! Should really be classified as as a diner given all of the homestyle meals! I prefer the onion rings or the tater tots myself the fries need to be crispier and more seasoned and do not hold up well if taken to go. There used to be a fast and friendly girl working the window a few years back and it would be great if she came back! She always for my order right and it seems as though the food came out faster. She was loud but she seemed to take charge and I like that. I think she was the supervisor anyhow this place is definitely a great place to eat and you can always expect as great Burger at or around the same price as a chain place but this place is homecooked!
Elaine's has relocated to a brand new building a few blocks from the original location. The food is just as good as it was at the last location. The King Fish is my favorite. The fish is very fresh, you have a choice of how mild or hot you would like your fish served. I prefer the hot, because in intensifies all those wonderful exotic spices that Elaine's is known for.The Ox-tails are a treat in themselves, wonderfully tender and delicious. the side dishes of beans,rice and cabbage stand alone by themselves. The wait staff are very attentive and cordial. They make you know that they appreciate your business. Dining at Elaine's will make you think that you are on a island.
For those that think breakfast is easy and that a chef could not make much of a difference, come try crossroads diner. Tom Fleming (yes, the Tom Fleming famous chef that has ran numerous extravagant resteraunts all over the world) has decided to open a breakfast and lunch-only restauraunt so he can have quality time with his family, and the dishes he serves are wonderful, affordable, and have every bit as much of Tom's talent thrown into these meals as he had when he was running some of the best resteraunts in the country. The pancakes are the best in the world, the eggs benedict is to die for, and everything else is excellent too. You have to try this.
The Y.O. is, unequivocably, the best privately owned Steakhouse anywhere. Just ask the Food Channel. I love their Hill Country friendly, refreshing atmosphere and attitude, impeccable service (no arrogant noses pointed skyward here) and, of course, their fabulous menu!!!! My favorites include: Louie Roll Ups for starters (Bacon-wrapped Axis Venison with Jack Cheese and Jalapeno); the Y.O. House Salad with Apples, Goat Cheese and Carmelized Pecans; Mesquite Smoked Buffalo Filet Mignon, 22 Oz. Bone-in T-Bone or the Sea Bass as my main entre. Their creamed Spinach is divine. Texas Hill Country Authentic! No chain here! Go see for yourself!
I recently attended a birthday party at your establishment and was overcome by the warm atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and I was able to relax somewhat more than usual, you see I don't get out much. But, it was my daughters birthday and she wanted me to attend the party and I'm so very glad that I did. The band was awesome and the recognization of the indivdual birthdays waere meaningful too. My son has a birthday coming up on 3/20 and I hope that he can come to your place. One thing on the negative side and really not about the club is the parking, not so good, maybe some expansion would help. Next Time
This was our first visit to the Y.O. Ranch and it will not be our last. The moment we walked in to the Y.O. we were greeted by a very attentive and friendly staff member. We loved the authentic Texas themed decor. We were seated in the Longhorn Lounge area. We immediately felt a warm and comfortable feeling. They have a extensive selection of wines to choose from. From the delicious jalapeno cornbread, to the juicey and very tender buffalo filet mignon and the delicious bannana pudding, every thing was fantastic. We would recommend the Y.O. to all of our friends. Thank you for a wonderful dinning experience.
