    WORST dining experience ever! It was embarrassing as I brought beloved clients. Wagyu Filet was not...replaced with cheap Skirt Steak and was absolutely raw. Shrimp was raw. Halibut was not prepared as requested. NOTHING WAS EDIBLE. Waited 2 hours and we sent everything back because it was not edible. Sad as staff (the 4 that were trying) seemed dazed and confused. Maybe just close this restaurant and start over.

    This honestly hurts to write it because the location is great and the decor is good! This might be the worst experience at a restaurant I’ve ever had. Our waiter Chris was basically mute and missing. Our meal took over an hour and my friends meal was room temp and poorly flavored scallops. My rolls were fine but with the amount of time they took, it should have been better. The table next to us warned us as soon as we sat down that everything was taking forever. We will not be returning.

    Food was really great, loved the ambiance, waiter was attentive and polite HOWEVER THE SERVICE WAS VERY VERY VERY SLOW. APPEARED TO BE A SLOW KITCHEN. As the restaurant was NOT full it should not have been so slow. We waited over 30 min for a dessert. Overall dinner took 3 hours with drinks, appetizer, main, and dessert. (We aren’t fast eaters, but never stay longer than 2 hours even for a very nice dinner on a regular evening out.)

    This place was a disaster from start to finish. Empty restaurant and there are reasons why: awful food, awful service, and one of the most overpriced restaurants in the city.

    Showed up at restaurant and it was closed. Very very disappointed. I had planned it for a birthday. For a Saturday night and no other reservations, I was livid. A no show to us- they said there was a charge of $50!!! Well, what about a no show to the restaurant??? Do you think I ever want to make reservations there again? NO

    First of all…. I made a reservation for 8 people at 7pm. It was for this past Friday, January 6. It was a corporate dinner after a long days work. When we arrived at the restaurant it was CLOSED! We were exhausted, hungry and looking forward to an amazing meal. Unfortunately, we will never give this place another chance. There was no sign on the door explaining the closure and if they need to close down for the day, then they should have changed settings on Open Table so customers couldn’t make a reservation. Not only that. We were then stuck, on a busy Friday night in Dallas, searching for a restaurant that could take our sized party.

    Will not be going to this restaurant again. The value of our Food was not close to what we expected! Took 2 + hours for service and although it was New Years Eve, management should of done a better job to be ready for spike in business. We found this place as a last resort due to more popular restaurants booked up, and faster than we thought, we understood why. Most patrons had the same feedback as us.

    Atmosphere could be elevated so easily by removing fake floral and bringing in fresh touches. Initial real arrangement at hostess desk had pink in a primarily red themed space. No valet was disappointing upon arrival. Food is fresh and flavorful as are cocktails. Service good.

    Very nice waiter and food was great! Good ambiance. Don’t be in a hurry though. It took about 15 minutes for our first round of drinks and forever for our food even though the restaurant had about 6 tables occupied. A lot of staff but everyone seemed to be standing around talking. Will go back if we have a couple of hours to relax and dine. Great pic spot at ATT outside.

    Specialty drink smokin pineapple created by Mya is amazing! The southwestern egg rolls are a great starter. The flatiron with the peppercorn sauce was excellent as a main dish with mashed potatoes as a side. The main course was accompanied with a glass of Malbec. Finally, I enjoyed a dram of Ardbeg, I am always happy to see that on the top shelf. Overall, excellent food and service. I felt like royalty the entire time I enjoyed my experience at Hawthorne.

    This was my second time at Hawthorn and unfortunately, it wasn’t any better than the first. There were maybe 3-4 other parties at the restaurant, so the restaurant was quite empty; however, the service was still a tad slow. We ordered shishito peppers to start, which were great! I had the scallops for an entree, which were outstanding, however, there were only 3 scallops, so unless you go out to dinner on a full stomach, this isn’t going to cut it, we got the Mac n cheese, broccolini, and creamed spinach/kale sides to share. The creamed spinach/kale was tasty but way too soupy. The Mac and cheese was just ok, nothing to write home about, and definitely not worth the carbs. The broccolini was interesting - a spicy chili sauce, which was ok, but the broccolini was undercooked. Overall, I was not impressed and will likely not be back, especially given how pricey it is despite the lackluster experience.

    Food was very good. The service was fantastic, unobtrusive and friendly. Only my second time here and it remains excellent. Great location near events and ATT. Easy reservation. Many thanks for an enjoyable evening. On a previous trip we had a birthday party in their private dining room. Great venue.

    Sushi was ok, steak was not good, scallops were good, but you only get three pieces. Not sure if it was worth the value, but the decor and ambiance was nice. Would probably go there for drinks but not dinner. Service was nice and pleasant but a bit slow.

    Do not eat here! This is over priced cafeteria food. I ordered Wagyu meatballs which turned out to be regular hamburger. The mash potatoes were potato flakes from the box with no flavor. The spinach and artichoke dip was lukewarm, mushy and bland. The halibut tasted like cod fish. I understand wait staff is low, but there were not many guests dining at the time of our reservation and the food arrived lukewarm and bland. The waitress tried to exchange the spinach and artichoke dip for a half loaf of bread, which was presented ROCK HARD!! The knife could not cut in to the bread! Oh and the drinks...my husband ordered the old fashion and it was a shot bourbon dressed with garnishing. This place is only worthy of 1 star, because it only exists in the business district.

    We had a really great meal here, the food flavours and presentation were exceptional. Wine list was interesting and varied to suit all tastes. As we are British, the starters were just enormous - we would either not have a starter at all, or share if we go again.

    Our server was great and friendly. He did mess up some drink orders, but with a group of 9 it’s expected. Food was great, sushi, pizza, burgers, we all loved it. It was super dead inside, which is suprising for a Friday night, but a nice place.

    The evening started when we were trying to valet our car on a busy downtown street to get into the restaurant. We had to go into the restaurant twice for the restaurant staff to help us find a valet. While I realize the valet is separate from the restaurant, there isn’t any other option on how to park considering it is downtown so they should ensure that for their guests. Once we walked in the restaurant we noticed it was almost empty On a Saturday evening at 7 PM, and by the end of our dinner, we knew why. Our waiter seemed really nice and great at first, but said a few offhanded remark‘s that seemed a little odd. We proceeded to order cocktails and three appetizers for the table,. Our cocktails took almost 15 minutes to arrive and almost an hour later our entrées showed up and no appetizers were ever brought. We asked the waiter several times during the hour wait if the appetizers were coming and each time he told us they were. As far as the entrées, they were par at best and not worth the price. The two best things about this restaurant was the girl who poured our water and the gentleman who seem to be the manager. Our water glasses stayed full and the manager basically ended up waiting on our table towards the end. Definitely not a restaurant I will visit again.

    All staff were friendly and service oriented. Appetizer: steak tartare would have been much better if the potato chips had been served warm instead of cold/greasy. Main: filet and truffle fries were yummy. Dessert: moon pie magic would have been much better if the brownie had been served warm & the marshmallow cream soft and melty, instead of hard cold brownie & solid marshmallow blob. After dinner drink: coffee with Kahlúa and cream was served room temp instead of hot

    Would find a better downtown spot. We got there at 6:50 for our 7:00 reservation for restaurant week. Not many diners at that time. Took until 7:30 to even take our appetizer order and didn't get appetizer until 8:05. Then it was atleast 30 minutes in between courses. Took forever to get food, drinks, the bill, etc. We didn't leave until 9:30. The bonus was they validated our $15 parking. Very pricey for what you got. And what was listed on the menu didn't always come through on the delivered plate.
