Michael always looks after us and we've never had a bad meal or experience. The menu has something for everyone. It can be noisy when full but the drinks are fine and the food excellent. Wander Highland Park Village after your meal.

Wonderful waitress that said coming from Hawaii, she never imagined the seafood in Dallas would be as fresh. She suggested we top our salads off with the salmon filet. And... boy was she right! The meal was exquisite

I'll try and make this brief, upon arriving and after including my seating request in my opentables reservation, we were seated in what I feel is the second worse table in the place, which later when the manager visited with me I mentioned to him.
Once our waiter found out we would not be drinking either wine or mixed drinks, just water, it was obvious he had lost any interest with my wife because he knew our bill wouldn't support much of a tip, in short as I told the manager, the waiter was snorky.
My bisque was luke warm and the grilled shrimp was very spicy, (which I can't eat) which wasn't shown as such on the menu and I couldn't eat. So actually, I didn't really have a dinner. My wife enjoyed her meal.
I stopped one of the mangers to discuss everything, he couldn't have been nicer, understanding and telling me they would address with the waiter his additude.
The manager brought my bill over and had made adjustments for my food. I didn't ask for any consideration or to have anything taken off, but I appreciate his actions. Hopefully all my areas of concern can be used possibly as a training exercise.
Thanks, Terry Prichard

Decor is very nice but I rated it 4 on ambiance due to noise. There are worse places but I prefer a place where you can easily hear the person across from you. In typical Dallas eatery style, this place has very bright acoustics, especially when near capacity. A big positive is its location in Highland Park and the people watching opportunities....everything from ultra conservative to extreme showboats. I highly recommend the shrimp and asparagus omelet.

I often dine at Bistro 31 with my family for lunch and sometimes early mid week dinner as I live close to the HP Village, and this is my first review for the restaurant as my previous experiences here were always satisfying in terms of good food and service, but this time both were EXCEPTIONAL and credit needs to be given where due - BISTRO 31 surely never disappoints :)

My girlfriends from Europe were visiting me in Dallas, so I decided to take them here (ladies who lunch kinda day) which seriously ended up being a fabulous 2.5 h lunch experience because we were having so much fun there!!! Luckily I made reservations online in advance and was seated immediately upon arrival despite several parties waiting by the door and the restaurant itself being packed, so they DO honor reservations and our table for 3 was already set and READY for us. The manger personally welcomed us along with a friendly hostess that seated us in a good spacious area. We started with a bottle of white wine to go with our Maine lobster salads, seafood risotto and salmon potato latkes - which were ALL phenomenal, well balanced and tasty combinations of modern Mediterranean cuisine.

My girlfriends and I grew up on the Mediterranean coast and all enjoy seafood, so we really loved chef’s creations and modern take on the modern Mediterranean food, as it’s a rather refreshing twist than the traditional one. All dishes came out beautifully presented like art, especially the Salmon potato latkes, with vibrant fuchsia and lime green tones that you can’t resist but take pictures of - perfection !!!! Lastly our server Miguel was amazing, very professional and super friendly as he made our experience there really fantastic !!! The entire staff and the manager were all very involved and accommodating so I highly recommend Bistro 31 as a place to go to with a great group of friends or family for an upscale dining experience, where you cannot go wrong with anything you decide to order on the menu.
