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.

We were a party of 8, and our server Morgan was excellent from start to finish! Delicious steak tartare, perfectly cooked eggs benedict, scrumptious medium rare burger along with wonderful omelet & ricotta pancakes - all perfectly prepared. Also most accommodating with a dairy & gluten-issue family member.

The waiter was incredibly rude and belittled me when I asked a question. I’ve never been treated so poorly at a restaurant before. Was so surprised for this to happen considering my family has been to this restaurant numerous times before and we’ve never had anything like this happen before. Ruined my experience and I’ll never go back.

Pleasant and appealing, Bistro 31 fits perfectly in the Park Cities. It's a terrific lunch and dinner place and enjoys a lively evening bar scene. The menu offers familiar fare, typical of Toulouse and other Lombardi restaurants. My crab cake was fine but not exceptional. My companions enjoyed the quiche and salads. Good selection of wines. It's a fun place. I'd go back.

Each course was excellent, appetizer to dessert. We had the octopus and crabcake appetizers- loved the octopus, surprisingly tender and very tasty. For entrees we had the filet and chicken; both were cooked to perfection, and their take on tiramisu for dessert, was a definite score!

Servers were courteous and attentive. Look forward to returning, in fact I'd enjoy the same meal again, did not disappoint!

Service is always attentive and comfortable. Wonderful atmosphere, not too big (and loud), small but not crowded where you can hear the conversation next to you. The staff treats you like a regular, regardless if you are or aren't - but you probably will become one. This is my go to place for special events or just every day
