City Cafe

On the northwestern edge of University Park sits an exceptional white-tablecloth neighborhood bistro. The menu changes seasonally, but it retains the relaxed New American-California character that has been the restaurant’s trademark since 1985. Impressing even distinguished American chef Julia Child, for over two decades City Café has been widely recognized in Texas Monthly, Food & Wine Magazine, Zagat, Wine Spectator, D Magazine, and was also recipient of AAA’s “Diamond Award”.

"This was an exceptional restaurant. The service was extremely friendly and efficient. The food couldn't have been better. Very nice atmosphere with soft music playing and dimmed lighting, Small and intimate. You can't go wrong here! Prices are a little high, but worth the cost."

"What a great experience! The food is outstanding. We started with the asparagus, fried lightly using rice flour with Meyer lemon aioli and caesar salad. The asparagus was perfect and such a unique take on "fried" food. Our entrees included the Pan Crisped Duck Breast, Tart Cherry Port Reduction & Duck Leg Confit á l’a Orange with Garlic Fried Farro and Watercress, and the daily special of halibut with red wine reduction and spinach. Conversation completely stopped while enjoying every flavor! Our host, Karim, made us feel like family and our server, Charlotte, is the best. I cannot wait to go again."

"City Café is a place I had been wanting to try. My wife had been there quite some time ago with some people from her work and said it was very nice. So, we tried it out again using the open table reservation system. I have made lots of reservations with Open Table but I have never been made to wait a full 20-30 min for a table when I had a reservation. I would have chalked it up to chance if we weren't alone. There were at least 3 separate couples stacked up at the bar when we got there. They were all seated before us so either they had reservation problems too or walk-ins were being seated before reservations. In either case that is no way to run a restaurant. Although the food is very good I must say my experience was made unpleasant by the manager/Maitre d', Karim . Not only was he dismissive of our time by ignoring us after we checked in but he was publically rude to the staff. Our waitress was very good despite being constantly publically berated by the manager for offenses no doubt imagined on his part. Not only did he treat us with contempt but he was constantly showing public contempt for the bartender and the wait staff. At the end it was our waitress who brought us a key lime pie that we had not ordered, evidently as a peace offering for how we were treated by Karim. Personally I hate Key Lime pie but Karim didn't ask--he just sent it over--he didn't even bring it over himself with an apology. If he had wanted to make it up to us, asking us to choose from the desert menu would have been appropriate. Just deciding that we would like key lime pie exemplified the attitude that he exhibited all night: unquestioned emperor of the front of the house. I won't be going there again. There are too many good restaurants in Dallas to waste time at a place that puts up with a bad manager."

"Restaurant is very "old school" and definitely needs to be updated, but still nice. Again, service was fantastic, and they were helpful in menu selection. A little expensive, but not at all unreasonable; portions were VERY generous; cabbage salad was just good, needed more flavor injection. Pot Roast was very tender but needed to be seasoned much better. They were also generous in giving us a desert on the house. Overall, really nice place, obviously has a cult following in the immediate area (University Park). Will try to go again - again needs some upgrades and seasoning on the food, but portions and service were really good. My wife and I were happy with our decision to dine there - definitely a place to try again !!"

"My first visit to City Cafe was delightful. It was a second thought to dine there. I was greated with Karim and the wonderful treatment began from that moment forward. The precision presentation of dinner and the immediate personal service was as fine as my dining with Charlie Trotter a few years ago in Chicago. This is only the beginning of my future years of enjoyment dining with Karim and staff.

"My absolute favorite dining experience in the Metro plex.
From the moment you walk in you know you are in for a great meal.
I highly recommend City Cafe.

"The dover sole and the liver were excellent as was the Blum cake for dessert. The service we received was exceptional and this white table restaurant has been one of our favorites for years."

"We have only been at this restaurant with a group, and each time the staff have taken excellent care of us. This past visit, they were unable to fill our requested table, but with a short wait, they setup an ideal scenario for us which was even better than we'd requested.
The food was excellent, as always, and we will be back often.
