    Love the live music!

    Welcome back 1980 we missed you. The Duran Duran band is freaky but with alcohol you'll like it

    Great date night place. Sometimes has live music. A little on the pricey side. Come prepared.

    Jordan Stinnett · May 29

    Solid lunch. Really good Cobb salad

    The valet is rude as heck. Don't forget your ticket or make an arrangement with Sambuca because they will be supremely rude, condescending and hold your car hostage.

    The restaurant may have relocated from its original Deep Ellum digs, but the eatery (now a chain) continues to reel them in with live music and an eclectic menu. Read more

    The service here leaves much to be desired.

    They are trying to turn a once classy restaurant into a trashy club. What happened to the live jazz? Been sitting at an almost empty bar for almost 10 mins. Still haven't gotten service.

    Adoralee Mott · April 12, 2014
  • Texas J.

    Don't go if you don't have a reservation. Arrived at six and didn't get seated until after seven. Food arrived at 8. Horrible.

    Funky and fun. Try something different tonight. Check out schedule for live bands. Great bartender.ask for different house drink each time then try to find the way to your room or car! Fun night!

    Had to get around 4 accidents and a building fire to get here. It was worth it.

    Sunday is kinda dead. But the live music makes up for it.

    This restroom is a complete stainless steel sanctuary in all its splendor.

    Dallas Observer · October 16, 2013

    Food was good. Great patio in October. Come early for the sunset and twilight. Wait staff was average. Beware of valet service. Park on Arts District side. Enjoy with someone special, if you can.

    Spinach salad and margarita pizza are amazing.

    They have a waiter/bartender here by the name of Andrew. He gives the best service and makes the best drinks.

    Try the Scallops - Absolutely delicious!

  • Jackie D.

    Horrible service. It took 4 hours to eat and get our checks, which were wrong when we did finally get them. Fun environment but I will never come back because the service was so terrible.

    Fun atmosphere! Pizza was delicious! Joe is a great bartender!!

  • AngelonEDGE @.

    Not the sophisticated crowd I expected for the location. Very casual Dallas; too many jeans and a funk band do not scream Ritz to me.

  • Jelena B.

    Thankfully they have a good cover band to make up for the bad food! Always a favorite, not anymore. Horrible service and bland food at a price ($$$$), not worth it.

    Ask the waiter to recommend a wine for your meal!

    See where Sambuca, the combination of fine dining and live music, got started, at this small spot in the warehouse district. #seemoresights

    Cool Russia meets China decor. The restaurant serves American comfort food - ie, meat and potatos.

  • Elena M.

    The chocolate cake!! Awesome!!

    Elena Marinova · December 3, 2011

    I had the worst service ever! Don't ever plan a bday surprise because they will ruin it. And double check your reservation because they'll forget it.

    Cool Russia meets China decor (Deep Elum Avant guard), with tasty American comfort food.. but I really like many of the various small and large bands. Read more
