I honestly think this is one of the most over rated restaurants in Dallas. food is meh. bland expensive and lacking imagination.. pairing of things like figs and foie gras is odd. Escargot were weird and tasteless.. Octopus was insipid.. if you want to spend $250 on dinner. there are way better options...

Great area, great patio, great service...but was a little underwhelmed with the meal. Not the taste we were looking for. Compared to other meals throughout our week, this meal got lost.

We always enjoy dining at Bistro 31. She had the Pasta Special. I had the Roasted Chicken. We shared a Chopped Salad to start with along with our favorite martinis. We chose the Chappellett “Mountain Cuvee” to augment our meal. It was divine. Perfect! We shared the Chocolate Chocolate Mousse for dessert. It really doesn't get any better than this!

Food was outstanding!!! Service was very good!

My only issue was that our table had a view of the kitchen and was close to the bar, at which some patrons were loud.
These were not deal breakers just inconveniences. Will pick a better table next time.

Again, the food was amazing!!! Our waiter was very good.

We will be back!!

I just spent Mother’s Day here and then took my son for his 17th birthday per his request ! The food was amazing both times and we had the same wonderful waiter both times ! Can’t wait to go back ! Love the atmosphere and the Olive oil cake is one of the best desserts I’ve ever had and I am not even a “dessert person”! Love it all ! I also frequent the rooftop with my gfs and that’s a blast with amazing food too !

100% a fabulous meal. All four of us enjoyed our entrees. Honestly, my Halibut was the best I have ever had! It was the most perfect preparation.
Easy to park and the service was outstanding.
This was my first time dining aBistro 31 and I will most definitely go back.

Bistro 31 is the quintessential upscale Dallas restaurant with great ambiance and people watching. You can sit inside or on the porch which adds to the experience. The food is always great especially the fish or pasta dishes.

I wouldn’t recommend Bistro again. I have been here a couple of times and this was my least favorite visit. The Bistro Lounge upstairs is awesome but the restaurant has some green servers. It felt like one hand didn’t know what the other was doing half the time. We had to ask several times to have our wobbly table fixed. Our food came out wrong (both in sequence of which we requested and in actual food delivery). The server was sweet but quite unsure and not methodical at all for the price point. I brought a friend to introduce her but it was an embarrassing attempt. We are both unlikely to come back.

The restaurant is always consistent. Service is outstanding and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Inside it is a little noisy, but you can still have a conversation. I would recommend avoiding outside which is covered at this time if you do not want a lot of noise. Once it is warm enough to not be covered, outside will be perfect. The candle they bring out when someone has a birthday is worth going by itself. It is spectacular.

I ended up in Dallas on a Monday night on my 50th birthday with my daughter. Bistro 31 was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Very pretty little restaurant. Everyone was very attentive. We ordered the burrata salad, halibut special and short rib ragu. They treated us to the pear tart with blueberry compote. Everything was delicious and there were so many other options that sounded just as good!

I really liked the vibe of this place - upscale French bistro without being stuffy or pretentious. The escargot were some of the best I've ever had, and the seared fois gras was excellent. The steak au poivre was cooked perfectly and the waiter made sure my branzino was seasoned just right. The service was done very well, and we were not hurried at all. Overall, a tremendous experience.

We were greeted warmly as soon as we arrived. Our table by the window provided a nice ambiance. Taylor, our waitress, did a great job with providing friendly service and suggestions for our dining pleasure. Food came out hot but not in a hurry, which was perfect for us to relax and anticipate our chosen entree. The seafood risotto was delicious and satisfying. Adult beverage served up quickly and just the right amount of everything. Highly recommend!
