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?"

"Our second visit in a week, and our first for dinner. Fine French dining with no excuses. Our least favorite dish, the mushroom soup, was very good, and it simply got better from there. The crab and avocado salad was spectacular. The lobster risotto was "just so", as it should be. The country pate was fresh and light with the pistachios setting off the flavor perfectly. We didn't save room for dessert, so we can't speak to them.
While Dallas has many great fine dining options, too many of them would not survive in NY, London, Paris or Rome with the same stature they hold in Dallas. This is not one of them. "Branch" of a NY establishment or not, this restaurant can hold it's own with those of the same class in any major culinary city."

"Mine was business lunch with a pair of experienced, worldly diners. White table cloth with white butcher paper perfect for drawing diagrams while eating and talking. Top notch French without being too complicated. Service friendly and professional if timing somewhat inconsistent. Drop coffee and various forms of espresso came consistently lukewarm. Server said, "Yes, we're working on improving that." Am taking my wife back for a second try. When asked about the relationship with the NYC establishment, maître d' said, "We're not really related to or owned by the same people, we just have an agreement to use their name, menu and the chef is here." Ok. Overall: good food, nice atmosphere, potential for being superb."

The Inn at Dos Brisas is a spectacular country Relais & Chateaux with Texas' only Forbes 5-star restaurant. The Inn features a Wine Spectator "Best of Award for Excellence" collection with a 5000 bottle wine cellar. The Inn is tucked amidst rolling green meadows and organic farm rows. We are between Houston (one scenic hour away) and Austin. Our menu is created with a cutting-edge blend of French quality, American flair for presentation and the subtleties of Asian minimalism using hand-picked herbs and spices from our organic gardens blended with seasonal produce from our organic farm and greenhouses. Our friendly knowledgeable staff and superb wine selections complement any meal. Our dining room features a rustic 1760's Loire Valley fireplace, large windows and porches overlooking rolling hills. This combines with sophisticated accoutrements to ensure that each dining experience exceeds expectations. Public Transit: We can arrange a limousine for the ultimate in door to door service.

"We stayed at Dos Brisas 3 nights and had 2 dinners there. We often eat at Michelin stars. Overall, the Brisas experience was high quality. The chef and mgmt are top professionals who've moved out there to continue Brisas' quest to be a renowned experience. The hotel and wait staff are very pleasant, helpful and courteous. That said...the food, while ambitious and of a very high level, lacked the "pop" you would expect from this caliber. Only 3 dishes (fois gras, two pasta dishes) out of the 12 over 2 nights, really had that "pop". Also, while the wine pairings were good, they were often late to the table. The course arrives but you are staring at an old glass, while you wait for the proper wine, or eat without it. We'll gladly be back."
