Very Romantic and Excellent Choice Menu. Having previously run an upscale restaurant in Dallas, I can very critical when it comes to service, quality, atmosphere and presentation. Wendy was our server and providede excellent wine choices for the courses we selected. Every course was just fabulous. They are even adept at taking care of vegetarians! Call ahead for reservations and if you have specific dietary needs. Your Valentine will definitely feel special in this upscale "hidden" jewel.
perhaps the best food in town. Eat here when they have foie gras and filet mignon. Desserts and salads are always terrible at places like this, so don't come in expecting much if you opt for them. But the entrees...if they sound good to you, you'll be very pleased with the preparation. Service is very cool and friendly. I ate here in jeans once (first time I visited), and nobody yelled at me. Every time thereafter, I dressed up for the food. It deserves slacks.
Perfection!. the service is great, the food is divine and the ambience is pleasing. having dined at alot of "esteemed" places this is a welcome addition. the menu is on the adventurous side but EVERYTHING ive had had perfectly balanced flavors and good portions. our waitress knew the menu well and was very informed on the wine menu (which is great as well). the atmosphere is soothing with the feeling of eating at a friends house, if your dinner will be for two in the main restaurant (there is lola's and the tasting room at lola's) then request the table by the bay window as it is so charming.
The TASTING ROOM at Lola. The TASTING ROOM's Chef David Uygur can make a sugar snap pea into a bite-size symphony of savory goodness! Having dined there several times, I have eaten things I never KNEW to like, lapped them up and wished for more. Each time, I was seated promptly, served at my own dining pace by attentive waiters who knew the menu and stories behind the "bites" and wines and enhanced my dining experience by sharing them. This is the place I come for extra special occasions for assured excellence in dining without pretense. I HIGHLY recommend it.
Creative New American fare in a cottage setting draws crowds to this Uptown special-occasion favorite..
Set back from the street in a cozy, old clapboard house, this spot is comfortable and refreshingly un-trendy. Simple, tasteful decor includes hardwood floors, pistachio walls and white tablecloths in three intimate dining areas. The place buzzes most nights with well-dressed couples and corporate groups, but tables are well-spaced and the noise level stays pleasantly low, making for easy conversation.
The rotating menu features creative preparations of classic ingredients, from grilled quail with apricot and endive to beef tenderloin with braised veal cheek. Wilted spinach and black mission figs provide the perfect counterpoint to melt-in-the-mouth-tender braised short rib. Crenshaw melon and prosciutto make for a delicious, sweet-salty combo in heirloom tomato salad. Black-truffle butter is a decadent addition to house-made basil fettuccine with toasted pine nuts and cherry tomatoes. Dessert is a toss-up between banana crepes or Texas peach croustade with blueberries and cinnamon ice cream.
