New favorite restaurant. We had the Wok out Bowl with Ahi Tuna, spicy Thai sauce and quinoa. Unbelievably delicious! Also had the crabmeat tower with avocado which was delicious as well as the California salad with tuna. Two of us split these dishes. They were very generous in the split. More food than we could eat but we wanted to sample them and now we have leftovers to look forward to tomorrow for lunch. Spencer, our server was young, cute, and enthusiastic. We really enjoyed his attention. Chef Brandon surprised us with a luscious birthday dessert, the double chocolate cake that was moist and rich with a wonderful jar of cold milk. Great touch. The decor was so fun with three giant colorful pictures, a mixture of AmericanaTexas , over the gorgeous bar. Really great night! Thank you, Spencer and Brandon. Looking forward to the new happy hour from 4:00-6:00 Monday’s through Fridays with $5 wine specials as well as five small plates for $9:00. We’re sold on Doc B’s. Healthy and delicious! More

They have some healthy options, steak/salmon salad, etc. Their burgers are also very good. Servers are quick and attentive.The restaurant side of Moxies is considerably more subdued than the bar side, where it can great pretty loud, even during the lunch hour. This place has a bangin' happy hour too. Food and drinks are on the pricier side, but that's no surprise for this part of town. More

Best shrimp cocktail I've had in years. NY Strip and Filet were both excellent. Creamed spinach was good, but a little too much garlic for my taste.

It's rare that you you have such a good experience dining these days. I enjoyed not feeling rushed while eating so many places are like get them in, get them out. Kat made City Council feel like a good neighborhood bar. Thanks. More

Chinese | Uptown, Dallas

Saturday at 5:30pm was not busy so the place was quiet and we had very attentive service. We had the calamari tempura which was good but we were expecting a bit more flavor from it. I really enjoyed my orange peel flavor chicken and shrimp with fried rice. We also had the lo mein with steak and shrimp. We ordered it with a little spice but it was a little too spicy. I felt like the spiciness overpowered any other flavors we were supposed to get from it. It wasn't bad but it could have been better. We didn't have room for dessert. I would definitely recommend. I've had their pad Thai from a previous visit and that was good. I think the parking garage next to it is available to park too so that's convenient. We didn't park there personally because we were a short walk away but it's useful to know parking is closeby (don't quote me on it though). More

French American | Uptown, Dallas

Now and then you encounter a meal that exceeds your expectations. Our Christmas brunch at Perle on Maple was one of those extraordinary meals. My family has a tradition of eating out on Christmas day, which is not always easy given that most restaurants are closed for the holiday; but we usually eat at a hotel restaurant. We had not dined at the revamped Perle on Maple, which is located in the historic Stoneleigh Hotel, so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did. The restaurant has a bright, welcoming, bistro feel, which complements the largely French cuisine. First course, the goat cheese appetizer was cooked to perfection. Served creamy and hot, with the right amount of crusty carmelization on the side of the pan - we ate the whole thing. Second course, the onion soup arrived with steaming onion broth and lots of gooey cheese in a classic crock - just yummy. Tip - save some soup for the french dip sandwich. This was also excellent, and even better when dipped in the rich onion broth. My wife loved her beet salad, and said it was cooked to perfection. The highlight of the main course was my daughter's steak with yukon gold creamy potatoes, part of a very affordable $55 3-course prix fixe holiday menu. Again, nothing particularly unusual, but a juicy steak done right is always a treat. The final "gift" of this lovely Christmas brunch was the fourth(?) course - our deserts - warm profiteroles with velvety vanilla bean ice cream - both the pastry and ice cream are made in house (see picture), and a selection of house-made sorbets that filled your mouth with intense fruit flavor. We also had the creme brulee' which was well executed in classic French style. We toasted to a perfect Christmas brunch with glasses of Moet Rose' champagne. We look forward to a return visit soon!

Discover Uptown Dallas

Uptown Dallas is an underrated destination for food lovers to visit. While there are always plenty of barbecue and Mexican places to visit in Dallas, its uptown area has a surprising focus on Mediterranean food. Here, you can get great shawarma and gyros that will get your mouth salivating. Another unique focus of Uptown Dallas is its love of Peruvian dishes. At these restaurants, you can get some flavored lamb served in an individual grill. There are also many iconic lobster dishes you can find in this fun and pleasant neighborhood. If you're looking for something more Texan, you can always stop at any of the signature barbecue rib joints in the area.
