"Tried this North Dallas Italian 1/2 dozen times. The food beckons...almost great, B+ for the price range. But service and ambience: wait staff friendly, tries hard but appears untutored in upscale service. Dishes timed incorrectly, wine arrives too late, silverware arrives randomly, visits to the table random. Last visit, the wine timing (on a $140 bottle) was so bad the chef/owner came out to open and serve it himself. This might have saved the day, but he arrived with the novice waiter in tow, didn't introduce himself but simply said, "Was our timing inappropriate on this?", right in front of the waiter. Why ask? If it wasn't, why was he here? Plus, concrete floor, bare flat ceiling and unimaginative "Italian" music result in high noise."

Our opulent, theatrical design features a sophisticated bar, and al fresco dining on the patio, private dining room for sixteen, and a stunning mezzanine overlooking the main dining area for the best people watching in town.

"Eaten at Nicola's off and on since Galleria, not often at Legacy. Recently we were pleased with the food. Most dishes are now worth the price. New chef and new GM (same owners) make a difference. This week we tried lunch and two dinners. The food was good (exception: Chicken Paillard oddly plated). The variable was service. Our first meal the server was good: prompt, pleasant, professional. The next meal's server was not unpleasant but not our style. The third meal's server was odd. He offered a relaxed pace. Then repeated interruptions to ask the timing we wanted for the next dish, to the minute: "8 minutes or 9?". Odd, then unable to control timing: dishes arrived at various ill-timed moments. Funny but off-putting."

Le Bilboquet, the well loved Parisian bistro from Manhattan's Upper East Side, has opened its sister location in Dallas. At Bilboquet, it’s all about delicious and authentic French food executed with skill and expertise in a beautiful and fun setting. Our goal, from the food, ambiance and style is to make everyone feel welcome.<br /><br />

"Pros: Upscale bistro with possibly the best French food in town. Yes, we know The French Room and the half-dozen or so other top French tables in town. This is better: fresher in taste, cooking style and presentation style (both without being trendy). Light, bright ambience and staff. The crab and avocado salad is the best, but so far no dish has been a let down. Cons: When dinner is in full swing and the place is full, it's loud even with all the windows open. In the early phases of the evening, it seems a hostess may double as waiter, which leads to somewhat distracted serving but courses are brought on time and at proper temperature. Chef only "on loan" from the NY establish by the same name; will the goodness last?"
