The service is wonderful, There is a lot of choices in food for anyone’s taste. The fun part is the whimsical desert designs. They are worth the trip if you are a desert person. You will have a very lovely evening

Had another excellent meal at this restaurant. The lobster shooters were outstanding! Atmosphere is rich. The staff were very friendly. The entire meal and cocktails were delicious. Reservations here are one of my first plans when going to Dallas!

Incredible surprise. The food is innovative, creative and dynamic. In an unassuming location and somewhat off the beaten path. Worth the trip.
