Sushi | Uptown, Dallas

Everything was great, the bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, my only complaint is that the wind is unnecessarily expensive, not everyone wants to pay $15 for a glass of wine for a casual dinner with friends. Especially when everyone is drinking a different type of wine so we can’t get a bottle, the bar tab racks up rather quickly and we would have probably spent more time there if the drinks weren’t $100 More

Alice is terrific! I am always wary of a place that has lot of hype, but I cannot say enough good thing about this experience. I had made a private request for a quieter table in my booking, and they tried very hard to meet it, but I can appreciate that Saturday night is prime time, so I was most appreciative that they offered us some options when we got there. The food was great! The small plates and sushi options are ideal for tasting a lot and grazing on many different things. The ahi tuna and lettuce wraps were my favorite, though everything we tasted was good! More

We have been coming to Abacus for years and love to celebrate special events there. This trip was a little less than we expected but still good. Service is always good and our waitress was wonderful and attentive. Our reservation was at 7:30 so the restaurant was hopping but we were seated immediately and had a drink in hand in 5 minutes. What we had on our minds to order (the Redfish) was sold out so we opted for the steak and the venison. The steak was well prepared but pared with veggies that were not so tasty. The venison was excellent! We opted for mac and cheese side (nothing special) and brussel sprouts (perfection). Dessert was chocolate cream brulee and something else - can't remember.... but they were good, just not anything special. We will come back but I hope next time it will be as good as I remember from times past. All in all, a great place to eat and have a good, pleasant meal. More

Barbecue | Uptown, Dallas

First time visiting 18 & Vine. Lived hee 2 years and haven't found "our" BBQ place until now. Our first impressions were: nice to have valet parking, nicer ambience than most barbecue restaurants and a great server. Now to the food. Between 3 of us, we tried brisket, pulled pork, sausage, ribs. brussels sprouts and baked beans. Everything was delicious. Brisket and pulled pork were meltingly tender, ribs were pretty much perfect with their bbq sauce and the sausage was a favorite with just a hint of heat. Sides were great - the brussels spouts had a slight char on them that was delicious. Service was prompt but not rushed and we left very satisfied with our meal. This is now "Our BBQ lace" More

I would go back. The food was good and it was a nice little place. Our server started out okay, but then tended to forget about us and by the end had an attitude of she really didn't care. She even seemed offended when I ordered dessert. Service is a huge thing to me, however I could tell this wasn't the norm from the interaction I received from other members of the staff there. More

Communication was not clear, I reserved through open table and directly through Bottled Blonde for VIP. when I first arrived they sat us at a booth but it wasn't until 30-40 minutes in that they realized I had reserved for bottle service, 5 bottles of Ciroc. They moved us but that was kind of frustrating. The waitress mentioned the spend limit would be $1400 because they were having a show but I didn't see anyone. There was also a really long hair in the wings. The manager came by to apologize and took both orders of wings off our tab. All in all in was a good experience and we will definitely go back. The vibe and music we'r on point, like that there is a good mix of people. More

Discover Uptown Dallas

Uptown Dallas is an underrated destination for food lovers to visit. While there are always plenty of barbecue and Mexican places to visit in Dallas, its uptown area has a surprising focus on Mediterranean food. Here, you can get great shawarma and gyros that will get your mouth salivating. Another unique focus of Uptown Dallas is its love of Peruvian dishes. At these restaurants, you can get some flavored lamb served in an individual grill. There are also many iconic lobster dishes you can find in this fun and pleasant neighborhood. If you're looking for something more Texan, you can always stop at any of the signature barbecue rib joints in the area.
