    Horrible service. Out of 3 of us two of our entrees came out at the same time. The 3rd entree arrived 20-25mins later. After we saw the server sir the food down at another table and then eventually brought it to our table. As we were awaiting our checks we asked to speak with management. After 20mins goes by our waitress says the manager said it’s a busy night and he can’t talk right now. My friend had to get up and go find the manager after another 20mins or back n forth with manager …he finally took her meal off the ticket. Like he should have done when the issue was brought to his attention. I’ve dined at 5 star restaurant locally and internationally and have never been so disrespected and disappointed in an establishment where I’m spending my money. Save your time and your money.

    My girlfriends and I stepped out just to have dinner and listen to some music. Ambiance was great. The different genres of music was a mixed very well. I had the Miso Glazed Salmon, it was kind of dry and a bit salty. Both of my friends had the Beef Tips, they had a good taste, but they were kind of dry and barley warm. The drinks were very good tho.

    The restaurant atmosphere is wonderful and live music is great. The food was average and overpriced shrimp & grits dish taste fine. The flatbread dish didn't taste good but drinks are good thus extremely overpriced for what it's worth. I would only recommend for live music vibe and atmosphere.

    The ambiance of the venue is truly what sells this place. It was truly beautiful. The food that my party had was ok. Not bad but also not great. The live music was on point and was definitely a great vibe. We will come back again in the future.

    Honestly the food was overpriced and gross. Service was not there and we waited 45 for a margarita. So my honest opinion on Lit Kitchen and Lounge is an not that great I’ll give them an 3.5/10. The drinks were good but the staff, food, and amount of time it took to even receive our food and drinks does not match the image the restaurant is trying to portray. The atmosphere was nice.

    Went for live music. The place is beautiful. It’s a vibe. I valeted my car and they handed me my keys abs pointed at my car across the street. The band was great, the drinks were somewhat expensive and the food was not good. There was not a big selection. This place could be so much better with a better menu.

    I was celebrating a birthday for my twin and myself with two friends last night and had a great time up and until the last ten minutes of the reservation. The DJ from the prom event next to us rudely came and rushed us out of our reserved section. Prior to, the servers let us know we were fine to continue to sit and enjoy the atmosphere, however, once the guy came over we were rushed to pay and leave. We didn’t even get to take group photos or enjoy the ambiance to which was the reason for booking at this particular establishment. I and my guests are thoroughly disappointed and will not be returning here again. Thanks for nothing!

    We waited thirty minutes for our table with a reservation, my friends were not satisfied with the quality of their food, and the price is not indicative of the service. The food is too expensive for the service to be as subpar as it is.

    I traveled from Baltimore, Md to Dallas, Texas for my Birthday Trip. There were 7 of us that came to Lit Lounge and it was such an amazing experience. The floor manager and the gentleman on the microphone was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! He has such great energy. I entered a twerk contest that I wouldn’t never typically do but the atmosphere was LIT! The food was amazing , the atmosphere amazing, the vibes amazing, the music amazing. They also have a photo booth. We had a great time and hiccups we had when we got to the restaurant was erased when we were accommodated by the floor manager/guy on the microphone.

    It was my birthday, the manager was amazing and he tried to accommodate us but the waiters where loss, their was no confidence or reassurance! Us having to wait for the whole party to get there to be seated really ruined the experience because somehow when we just said forget it let’s go! It took too long to get someone to check and get us seated once the party was actually there. , the Kitchen ended up closing! The waiter told us out of her mouth she accident brought the wrong drinks! So we had drinks at our table that wasn’t ordered and it was confusing when it came time to pay because she didn’t know! The music was good and we loved the club environment! We didn’t get any food so it was hard to say whether or not that would of been worth it. I probably wouldn’t go back for a special occasion for myself but I would for somebody else and hope to have a great experience because the place has crazy potential! The photo booth was my favorite part! Also the manager he was great! Some chaos seem to have happened that he had to focus on. There no doubt that if that didn’t happen I’m sure he would of taken care of us!

    Valet was located at the front door - prepay cash only Frost round of drinks at the bar - bartenders were attentive and friendly! Service was amazing. Food was good….for anyone worried about prices…ask first - prices are not on the menu. We ordered a little bit of everything…a few apps, 4 entrees, cocktails, (a round or 3), 2 desserts and then we moved to bar. Great vibe! Tables next to us were over crowded, but would def do again.

    Let me start by saying they REALLY put ALOT of work into this place. It is absolutely beautiful and it is a whole vibe. The decor is amazing, they have a photo booth area where you can text yourself the pictures, it doubles as a restaurant/club. There are tvs everywhere, the service & engagement with customers is outstanding! Downtown princess was my favorite drink! (For the ones who love sweet drinks) Get Litty & Get Kinky we’re pretty tasty as well. Chicken parm lollipops were okay & that doesn’t mean much from me because I’m not crazy about mozzarella sticks and it seems to be a take on that with chicken in it. Chicken Diablo was pretty good, & the scallop fried rice was decent, and the garlic noodles were bomb!! Prices aren’t listed anywhere, so here is a break down of our ticket… Get Litty x 2 $40 Chicken Parm Lollipops $17 Downtown Princess x 2 $36 Chicken Diablo $27 Scallop Fried Rice $27 Green Tea Shot x 2 $24 Get Kinky x 2 $40 Side of Garlic Noodles $9 Total $245.85 (with taxes & service fees) All in all and being transparent I’d definitely return but for drinks & to experience their nightlife scene. I can’t get over how freaking cute this place is. Drinks are some of the highest I’ve seen in Dallas even in comparison to Perry’s & Monarch. But you know what they say it ain’t tricking if you got it lol…
