    My boyfriend and I had a great experience. The ambience outside was incredible. Our service was great. We went just for appetizers and the server recommended we also get the burnt ends so kudos to him for a great up-sale because they were delicious. We kept saying this will be our new go to restaurant. Can’t wait to come back.

    We love Smoky Rose. We have never had a bad experience there. The food is amazing. There is a good variety of options for everyone. The drink menu is great, too. We love being able to sit outside and enjoy a meal, and especially love it on weekends when they provide entertainment. We highly recommend Smoky Rose!

    We loved everything about Smoky Rose from the ambiance, outdoor eating area and finally the food and beverages. Having not been there before we didn't know what to expect, but would definitely return. The sides I had of french fries and cole slaw were outstanding. Wish we had tried your place sooner!

    Everything was great including the service. The music was really awesome. Chip Davis, I think was his name, did the perfect acoustic set for the setting. Following him now to find out where he plays.

    We were a party of seven which included an infant and children. We made a reservation so seating was quick. The food was very good and there were a lot of options for the adults and children alike. Service was quick, friendly and accurate. Love the location being across from the Arboretum. We will definitely visit again when we’re in the area.

    I’ve been going to this restaurant for several years, but the last three or four times it’s been my experience that the food quality is no longer what it used to be. With the exception of the brisket queso. The brisket queso cannot be beat. The location directly across the street from the Dallas Arboretum is perfect, and the patio is great.

    Food and service are great. Valet is not (and it’s the only/required method of parking). It was about a 5-10 min wait to get in and a 20 min wait to get out. I had somewhere to be after brunch and was made late. I’ll be returning, but will most likely just use my member parking at the arboretum and walk!

    The service was absolutely horrible. Our reservation was at 6:45, and we did not leave the restaurant until 9:10 due to the absence of our server throughout all stages of our meal. We requested to speak toa the manager to express our disappointment with the service, and he had absolutely nothing to offer in the way of an apology. The valet parking situation also takes forever. We will never visit this restaurant again

    I love this spot but today was an off day. I made a reservation a week in advanced and they sat us right next to the super loud tv. Our service was slow and forgot a lot of things we asked for. I think he also forgot to put in our appetizers. Food is always good though!

    The service today was horrible. We had to wait fifteen minutes for water and a server to show up. Then my food order was wrong. The mashed potatoes were bland and the Mac and cheese was not good. When it was time to leave the valet was a mess and took forever. Probably won’t come back here anytime soon. I also don’t normally review places it was just that bad.

    We had a party of 13 (including three children under 9) and our wait staff was very nice, personable and accommodating! Our order was all correct and brought all at the same time! The playlist was very good and provided a relaxed fun atmosphere (but too loud that you could not hear the other members of your party - even the size of ours seated at a long rectangle table). Perfect proximity to The arboretum - we had a celebration dinner here after our son proposed at the arboretum! Food was good and large portions with a large variety on the menu - lots of different options with brisket! A member of our party got the Cobb salad and it was huge and looked very good! Kid friendly with out a McDonald’s play land vibe! My husband and I already decided that he and I will be returning asap- for the ambience and he said there were other things on the menu he wanted to try!

    We were so disappointed that they had removed their Salmon w/ Buerre Blanc Caper sauce from the menu. Also, for some reason, the service was very slow. Otherwise, this is a great place w/a beautiful outdoor yard seating area!
