We had a dinner for four on Valentines but we were all there for work, no romance😊. Food and service were superb from Crabcake to steak. Flourless chocolate cake was superb. Very friendly. Lots of "whose who" in Dallas all in search of a quieter night and very respectful of each other.

I love the food. The servers came up short in the attention department. I hate having to flag down a server who is not busy, but doesn't look your way & stands with his back to you. I get quite miffed at that, especially when there are two and only 4 tables occupied. I had the walnut hummus, which I... More

A group of high school friends meet here during the Christmas holidays to reconnect and have fun. We have been treated so well here. There is a private room which allows us plenty of space to visit. The meal is always delicious. The crab cakes with asparagus and potatoes is my favorite. Can't wait until next year! Hint: The parking... More

WOW! We are thrilled to have found this place! It is a REAL restaurant!! Each dish was absolutely delicious, and the service was impeccable! Plus, you can actually carry on a conversation with the people at your table without having to yell at them, as in so many restaurants. The location is very unassuming. In fact, our daughter arrived before... More

Because of Trip Advisor's review of this restaurant we went and enjoyed a wonderful meal, wonderful service (thank you Rodrigo) and will definitely return if ever in Dallas again. What a gem - sort of hidden away in a strip mall of sorts, but once you enter the restaurant you realize you are in for a treat. The service was... More

City Cafe meets the true definition of Neighborhood Gem. Staff is extremely friendly and provided exceptional service. We were quickly offered suggestions on wine and were not rushed as we enjoyed a longer dinner visiting with friends. The noise level is soft so it's a great place to visit and hear others. Food is exceptional. I get something new every... More

I went with a group of friends to City Cafe for Afternoon Tea. The first course was a selection of sandwiches. My favorite was the Chicken salad. Second course was a large scone served warm with jam and clotted cream. Third and final course was mini pastries. (Not my favorite) The hot tea served was delicious!

We saw "cafe" and thought a casual nice diner. We're not from the DFW area so gave it a try on late Friday business in the area. The valet parking gave us a thought it may be a bit more upscale. Although menu looked like a bit heavier on food than we would have selected at 9pm we stayed. Glad... More

This is a place for wonderful service and a beautiful menu. It is up scale but you would not expect it from the store front in this shopping center.
