    Not my type of restaurant. I didn’t realize there was a dress code and that was my fault, but man do they look down on you! The hostess “snuck us in” (because my boyfriend was wearing shorts for brunch) in the most condescending way possible. The service was decent, especially the guy who would refill our drinks and take away plates. I asked if we could replace the steamed asparagus with sliced tomato and then were charged $4 each. Okay sure. This was definitely a much MUCH older crowd. Won’t be back.

    A special occasion place for so long as I have lived in Dallas (since 2001) . The same favorite items appear on the menu but now they cost twice as much. Conservative and traditional decor is appealing to me, as is traditional service and space between tables

    C.P. remains our favorite restaurant in the DFW area. Food quality along with very well informed servers makes every trip to this good food oasis worth it. I would say, don't change a thing with one exception: Instruct the bartenders to give a bit more generous pourings of on the rocks drinks. I prefer gin on the rocks so I have to get two in order to be satisfied. (Maybe that's the idea). We'll see you next time

    Efficient, attentive and very friendly service. Good relaxed atmosphere and decor. The high ceilings are probably helping to reduce the ambient noise to a very low and satisfactory level . Yummy Point Judith Calamari with and incredibly soft but not rubbery texture under the crispy outer layer. The scallops were very good, may be a little undercooked and a bit too salty. The halibut was perfectly cooked and the lemon-asparagus risotto was fantastic. We have appreciated a lot the pecan ball desert that has been served as a gift for our birthdays occasion. Overall a very good and satisfying experience that we will repeat soon.

    Food and service were excellent- prices are high but you pay for the ambiance- we recommend the pepper steak, the sea bass and the chicken dish which were all excellent- we also had several starters -calamari, prawn cocktail and crab cake were all delicious. Finished off the meal with a pecan rolled icecream in chocolate.

    Food was great but service was very disappointing. My husband and I had to wait forever for our waiter to contact us. We finally spoke up and still service was very poor. The matre d asked how it was going and I said I was waiting on my wine. He acted if he was going to get me a glass but then waiter came and almost done with my dinner when he brought it. For a $250 dinner for 2 I expected more
