Lovely afternoon lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. Service beyond reproach. This is a place that truly cares about its patrons. Notice that by the door they have shawls in case you get too cool and pillows if you need extra back support. This true customer service.

I had high expectations for this restaurant, but was disappointed, mainly by the food. The lobster bisque tasted like a poor-tasting tomato bisque with some chunks of lobster in it. It was entirely too thick, didn't taste like it had been seasoned with salt or pepper, and frankly was the worst lobster bisque I have ever had--and I have had a lot. The spaghetti chitarra (recommended by our server as one of her favorite pastas) tasted like the lobster bisque in noodle-form. Why I was talked into a red sauce-based pasta featuring lobster is beyond me, but honestly nothing on the limited menu sounded any better. The only redeeming part of my experience was the wine, which was marked up threefold, that I could purchase on my own.
If you haven't been here before, just do yourself a favor and go to Neighborhood Services instead. And if you don't do yourself that favor go to Neighborhood Services after visiting here and remember that I told you so.

It is a nice little place with a decent menu but there was a unpleasant fishy odor upon arrival which is just unacceptable for a restaurant.

Great meal and service! Great Monday pick me up. Love the big comfy chairs by the window. Had the potato latke (could have eaten more than 1), the Carbonara- light and creamy and a pear tarte- perfect sweet ending. Can’t wait to try everything else on the menu.

Had scheduled a lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for some time. We had a long lunch and never felt rushed to finish. Service was excellent throughout our lunch and always made us feel welcome. To be able to have a relaxing lunch and conversation with a friend and never feel rushed by the wait staff was most appreciated. Our server was incredibly gracious and paid close attention to our every need. The food, as expected, was fabulous.

One of the best restaurants in all of Dallas. Food and Service are always top tier. Nestled in the Highland Park Village center, a Premiere, Funky, High End Shopping/Dining area in Highland Park. Highly Recommend.

Besides waiter that told me to just move six inches to avoid a setting sun they jnew would happen ( why sit us there), the food was good, service excellent, but overall okay. Its an older persons place. I mean older locals. For new locals you get shoved wherever. The taste is for them, also, and should be updated.

The lobster bisque was rationed apparently. It was served in a large bowl which was about 1/8 full. I’ve never seen such a small portion served in an expensive restaurant. The Caesar salad had almost no dressing or croutons or shaved Parmesan cheese. It also had almost no green part of the lettuce, but instead was all yellow or white. The salad was a good amount, but had very little Caesar flavoring.
All in all it was a very disappointing dinner.

I dine at Bistro 31 for lunch several times per month with friends and business colleagues. I'm always reluctant to give five stars, particularly on every single metric, but, the overall experience is so good that I'm giving it 5 stars on each. I highly recommend it.

Four adults and an infant were quickly and easily accommodated by the hostess. Our server was outstanding. Food came out on time and warm. Server checked often enough to ensure we were ok not to the extreme of being intrusive though.

Ken was our server and he was by far one of the best servers we have ever had at any restaurant. Attentive, patient, knowledgeable, and just as kind as can be. The food was impeccable, and thoroughly enjoyed our drinks, too. We look forward to returning to enjoy the upstairs patio, sushi, and music. Our first time to Bistro 31 and definitely not our last. A new favorite!
