Impeccable service and fine fare at newly renovated French Room in the historic Adolphus. A most impressive wine list, making The French Room a good choice for special occasions. The Prix Fixe menu is a good value when compared to other high-end restaurants.

We recently went to check out the newly remodeled French Room at the Adolphus Hotel. Overall, our experience was such that we probably won't be back, which makes me sad because we've loved that place since we moved to Dallas 17 years ago. First, what...More
