    We were looking forward to dining here as I had read good reviews. We really wanted to try the quail with escargot but they were out of quail. I also ordered a bottle of wine from a very small wine list and they were out of it too. They brought another bottle of a good Chateauneuf du Pape so I said fine, let's drink it. I did not know it was not temperature controlled. When I spend $110 on a bottle of red wine I expect it to at least be served properly. We both ordered the NY Strips for dinner, medium rare, and both were brought to the table between medium well and well. Both were very chewy and lacked flavor. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend Addison Cafe.

    Went on Christmas Eve and menu was limited which was an unexpected surprise. Had wanted the duck but it wasn’t on the menu so I had the Mediterranean bass. It’s was well prepared. Wife had salmon which was a large portion. Also good. Overall look is dated but service was very attentive and appropriate. When all was said and done, the main impression was all felt a bit overpriced.

    You cant go wrong here. Everything is on point. White tablecloths. Warm bread. Perfectly executed dishes. And the price points are reasonable = portion, quality, service, atmosphere. Yes, its old school. And it’s charming because of that and perfectly French.

    We love this place! The servers are pofessional but so friendly! We always enjoy talking and laughing with them! The menu is small but everything they offer is amazing. I usually get the quail with escargot - totally amazing! My husband changes but from the fish to the veal, it's all fantastic. Wines are so reasonable and from all over the world. Desserts are soooooooooo good! If you get a chance please go visit!

    I had trout with crab topping, which was excellent. Accompanying vegetables were good, not outstanding. I was disappointed with the mushroom soup. It was totally pureed with no mushroom chunks, which made a boring, grainy texture. Also, the dinner rolls got cold and hard very quickly, and were flavorless. Service was attentive. What I really enjoyed was the calm, peaceful ambiance with soft music in the background.

    This restaurant was such a pleasant surprise and a real find in Dallas. We loved everything from the decor, cocktails and service to our delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts. No complaints anywhere. My friend even wrote a complimentary review and attached it to her backpack and advertised it at the National Pickleball Championships we were attending in Dallas. Five stars all around and worth ever $.

    A very nice decor without being ostentatious. The low noise level is conducive to good conversation. An interesting menu. I had a starter, entree, and dessert. As usual every item was good, even the vegetables, which at many places are pedestrian.

    I truly enjoy the entire lunch experience at Addison Cafe. The wait staff is attentive, but not intrusive. The tables are set with white table cloths and napkins, the decor is pleasant, the lighting is adequate. The French Onion soup is extraordinary, and every dish I've tried has been very good. I highly recommend the Addison Cafe at lunch whether that be for business or pure pleasure. It's classy without being pretentious. And no more expensive than the many other dining choices in the area.

    The dining room was tired looking and had that smell that old restaurants have when they need renovation. The food was fair at best. Service depended on the person who came to the table. We have wanted to try this restaurant for years. Now we wish we hadn’t.

    WAKE UP AND VISIT ADDISON CAFE… I am from Europe and was looking for a Michelin star ⭐️ restaurant in Dallas. But it doesn’t exist. However I found this little gem founded in 1981, which was a total delight. Snails (Escargot), onion soup, halibut and chocolate mousse. And even the rose 🌹 on the table was real. Please 🙏🏼 visit - promise it is worth it. ❤️❤️❤️

    Food selections and quality has definitely gone down hill. It is no longer the five-start establishment it once was. Portions were very large but not worth taking home. A Friday night at 7:30 only eleven customers in the entire restaurant—-an indication of its decline. We waited ten minutes for our plates to be cleared and bill received. It’s not like they were busy!!! Used to go there frequently but never again.

    Delicious food and great ambience, quiet enough to be able to have a conversation but we felt extremely rushed since the beginning, a kind of rude waiter keep coming back to our table to rush us through everything, trying to take our plates away, etc. We did not let that ruin our evening celebrating Mother’s Day with friends but it was obvious he wanted us out of there very quickly
