Food was outstanding as always. Service was uneven. We arrived at 7:10 for a 7:15 reservation and had to wait until 7:40pm to be seated. No one offered us a drink or an appetizer due to the extra wait. The other frustration was just normal issues around slower service because of staffing and how crowded the restaurant was. Not a big deal especially during these times. My only other disappointment was that in the reservation notes we noted we were there celebrating our son’s 17th birthday. No one acknowledged that and finally before dessert was brought I had to get up and flag down the waiter and ask him to put a candle or something on my son’s dessert. They did just that. So it was okay.

Hostess told us we had the table for 1.5 hours-
Bad start.
Table behind us had 3 kids under 5- crying baby and booth kicking kid.
Manager did not care.
Won’t be back anytime soon

This is normally such a solid experience. Had swordfish and grits which were bland. Others at the table had flat iron steak each - one was perfect. The other was a rubbery, gristle filled piece of meat that could not be chewed. Server was very attentive. She tried to recover with a dessert on the house which was nice.

Dining room was packed like sardines as if covid was nonexistent, and we had to shout over the table to talk.

Sadly we will look elsewhere for dining.

We loved OSK, the cute burger joint first on Industrial Blvd then moved to Trinity Groves and closed during COVID one. Bummer. Then...we found Town Hearth, same owners. AWESOME. So when we realized this place was under the same ownership we had to try it. First off: fantastic cocktails made by first-class bartenders. Old Fashioned was terrific. Dinner: server said he'd been there 8 years--that says something. I don't recall his name but he has a beard and worked the back side of the restaurant. Seating was not too close, you could hear your table mates speak. Music not too loud. The serving staff worked like a ballet. They were on it. We had: oysters as a starter (get the toasted bread!), wedge salad (awesome!); short rib pasta special, short rib enchiladas, steak/frites (voo doo sauce yummy!); and scallop. Decent wine list, we split two bottles between three people. We'll be back. We hear fried chicken Friday is worth the trip. It's on Lover's and parking is a be-atch so be prepared to walk and/or valet. The valet staff are awesome. We can't wait to try Montlake Cut, Desert Racer and Yo Lobster, their other concepts.

Table was ready for our booked time, although we arrived 15 minutes early, so that probably helped. Bartenders made excellent cocktails, and was friendly while keeping very busy.
Venue is slightly noisy, so a booth table is better if you want to talk quietly.
Food was excellent. Fish & Chips for me, Chicken Confit for guest. Wait staff provided very good service, and was knowledgable about the menu, portion sizes, complementary beverages.

As always, a terrific meal with terrific service. The noise is *almost* enough to drive me away—it makes no sense to play music while the don of conversation already is deafening.

But back to the food—the meatballs and tempura asparagus are addictive; halibut, steak, and pork chop perfectly prepared; and butterscotch pot de creme— the greatest. The wine markups are reasonable and cocktails great.

My favorite restaurant in Dallas.

The server was great. The Wednesday meat loaf special was OK. May be a matter of taste, but the server said it was the best she had ever had. Had burnt crusty on the edges. We had 2 of the fish specials. The Hake fish with grits, the fish was very good, the grits no so much. Expected better from NS on this one. Tried something new on this visit, will go back to our regular choices on our next visit.

The food and service at this place are reliably good. Last night, it was slower than usual - maybe they are having trouble getting people to work in the restaurant? Still, a little slower but excellent food and service.

This place is always loud. There are no curtains or anything to absorb sound. It can be difficult to talk comfortably.

Had 6:30pm reservations and didn't get seated till 7:20. Too many others in the same situation. Food was ok but mostly bland and not up to their usual standards (had been there over 20 times before). Had an out of town guest and was disappointed in the whole experience. In addition, never got a manager come by and apologize for the delay or ask how the food was etc... I know COVID has hit the industry hard but this meal was way below their usual lofty standards.
