State & Allen Kitchen+Bar is one of those Dallas neighborhood establishments that is as real and as effortlessly fun as the people who frequent it. A place for a quick cocktail, or impeccably prepared food accompanied by a selection from an impressive wine list. We are your living room away from home, where you can hang out on our patio and enjoy good drinks, catch a sports game on the big screen—and above all, have a great time with old friends while making new ones.

Had a party of 4, sat out on the patio. Our server was nice, a little slow (but to be expected given the times), but she still did an amazing job. The area is beautiful, the food was delicious, the drinks were pretty good as well. I really enjoyed the experience.

Food was average, calimari tasted frozen and looks like large French fries instead of little chunks. Not worth going back.

State & Allen Kitchen + Bar
Responded on 29 October 2021

We're sorry that you didn't enjoy dining with us. Due to supply chain issues, we temporarily had to use calamari steaks instead of rings for our appetizer. This is a temporary fix, not long term. We hope we can have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

The service was good, waitress was very pleasant. Salmon had a great flavor but wasn't cooked in the middle I just ate around it. Husband had the Turkey Club and he enjoyed it, their french fries are delicious!

Food was good. Drink was kind of warm and tasted like someone had to Google the recipe. Service was slow but that's expected nowadays. It's a great little neighborhood staple and we enjoyed sitting outside on a surprisingly pleasant Texas evening.

The food was outstanding. But, the interior is all cement and the noise level was like being at a rock concert. This was for Saturday brunch! Cannot imagine it at other times. Would go back for the food but would want to sit outside. Otherwise, bring earplugs!

I really love this place which is why I'm writing this honest review!

We arrived for our reservation right on time for Saturday brunch and were sat promptly, but it took our server, who was brand-new, probably 15 minutes to greet us. Then, we ordered drinks and had to check on them multiple times. Probably another 15 minutes. My husband ordered a beer, which wasn't available, but he was not made aware by our server, so his drink just never came out and he had to order another and wait even longer (from a different server who checked on us.) Clearly the server was new and overwhelmed, which is fine, but it would have been nice if she had more help while she was training so that we still got the service we expected during a busy period.

First time dining in the high-top dining area, and it was a good change from our regular patio dining. It's a very popular, and good place to have Sunday brunch and socialize. Very diverse patronage, friendly and attentive staff and great menu. I'll be returning soon!

The hostess table is on the Allen St entrance, separate from the main entrance to the restaurant - not easy to find. The service was “ok” but on occasions quite slow, and the restaurant was not full to justify it. The food ... my girlfriend got a croissant with eggs sandwich loaded with cumin - it overwhelmed whatever seasoning was being used. I got steak and eggs - very blend - and ended up switching it with hers. The mimosas were good and reasonably priced. And the bread pudding was excellent - very soft and light! It has potential, but it has ways to improve food quality and service.

The hostess was rude because she took us to the bar and I reserved standard. Her attitude changed immediately because we didn't want to sit in there.
We were seated in the restaurant part and the experience was excellent once we left the hostess! Mimosas were excellent✔️Food was tasty✔️ Our waitress was prompt✔️
I will go back again!

Brunch is certainly not their main focus as a restaurant. The Huevos Rancheros were fabulous. However, the banana pancakes were a miss. They burned the first batch. I kindly returned them to the kitchen for another try. The second batch were only slightly less burned. They did not charge me for the pancakes, however.

Kids and husband went for brunch. This wasn’t really a place for children during the time that we went. I’ll go again to hang out with friends for the ambiance. Outside patios are always a deal!!!
