Front Room Tavern

Chef Taylor Kearney puts a modern spin on classic American staples at Front Room Tavern, using traditional French techniques and locally sourced ingredients to create Southern-influenced cuisine. The restaurant bar offers a wide variety of wines and beers, as well as an artisanal cocktail menu with a mix of classic and contemporary variations. Leslie Brenner of the Dallas Morning news awarded Front Room Tavern four stars calling us "relaxed yet sophisticated and seasonal, stylish but unpretentious, and with price tags that don’t break the bank — exactly what Dallas needs more of."

The intimate space features a sleek mid-century design and covered courtyard patio overlooking Southern Methodist University. Located in The Lumen, a Kimpton hotel, Front Room Tavern is open 365 days a year for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails.

"Don't let the fact that this restaurant is in a hotel keep you from going. The quality of food and service is top notch. Chef cured meats, local sources, and attention to details keep me coming back for this food. Service is attentive and friendly. The décor is clean and modern but warm. It can get busy - especially when the university across the street has an event - so reservations are recommended."

"First, the service was extraordinary. I got the Tile (which is a fish, who knew?) with asparagus risotto. The fish was wonderful but the risotto was a little soupier than it should be. The crispy artichoke that came with it was a little harder to eat than it should have been. Hard to bite. The deviled eggs starter was fantastic, but the highlight was the hot sauce that came with it. We loved it so much that we bought a small mason jar of it ($10) to take home, and so far, it's good on just about everything. My husband got the pork loin/pork belly and he said it was wonderful. For dessert, I got the chocolate trifle, which was a revelation. My husband got the cobbler, which I assume was also wonderful because he inhaled it."

"I had booked an Easter Brunch for my family for after church. I looked online to see the brunch menu, which seemed to have a variety of both breakfast and lunch selections. No mention on the website that Easter would be different. When we arrived, we were informed that they only had a lunch buffet available. Since there would be no chance in finding a lunch at this point at any restaurant we said that we would take the buffet. The buffet was average at best with a omelet station and a carving station. The roast beef was average quality and overcooked, and the ham and turkey did not look appetizing. The only bright spot on the entire buffet was the eggs benedict. Even the desserts were not special with many cookies and other forgettable selections. To add insult to injury, the cost of the buffet was $50 per person, which did not include any beverages (not even tea). I have been to the Front Room for dinner, but I will never come back. I was wondering why the ratings have been going down, and now I know why."

"Amazing food and unexpected excellence in a hotel restaurant- love the seasonal changes and the fact that dishes like roast lamb shank and spring peas are not found everywhere and was divine. Plus the bar does a great job with cocktails- who could ask for more?"

"This was our first occasion to dine at the Front Room Tavern, which has a chic, elegant "big city" (sort of LA-esque) interior. Our server was John, who was very friendly and engaging, eager to please, there when he needed to be and non-interrupting when we didn't need him to be there.
My husband ordered the Butternut Squash Soup and I the Deviled Eggs for our first courses, both of which were excellent. We both ordered the Hanger Steak Frites. The frites were crisp and delicious; the steaks most unfortunately were cold and tough, marring an otherwise great dinner experience.
We reported the cold steaks to John (only when asked about our satisfaction with our dinner), and he was distressed and offered profuse apologies. Shortly thereafter, the restaurant manager appeared at our table to add his apologies. He offered us a dessert on the house but we declined; we are not of the sort to lodge complaints in order to gain "freebies."
We will give the Front Room another try and another chance."

"We had dinner at Front Room before a concert at the McFarlin Auditorium. This worked nicely; we were able to park before the auditorium lot got busy, and walk to the restaurant.
I had the steak frite, and my wife had the duck duo. Both were outstanding. The signature cocktail list is very interesting, and the by-the-glass wine list is one of the best I've seen outside of a wine bar."

"I got to dine at Front Room Tavern for the first time this past weekend and what a treat it was. From the divine Eggs Benedict (my plate was practically licked clean!) to my delicious Bloody Mary, I was a very happy & satisfied camper. This place has a romantic, natural, inviting feel to it.... Glass windows allow natural light to come in nicely. The staff were very attentive, courteous, and helpful as well. Will definitely recommend to others and I plan to be back for lunch and/or dinner :)"

"Horrible food on a very restricted menu. Though others next to us were being offered food from the bar menu. My pasta was rock hard and tasteless so I sent it back - it was not comped. Service was slow and inattentive . Terrible value. I will not be back."

"Was Feb 13 - no mention of a Valentine's menu on the website. Was set at $75 pp - 3 courses. Pretty good selection but very small portions. Service was good but definitely wanted you in and out - assuming due to V-Day crowd. Tiny table for 2 - my husband is 6'6' and 275 lbs - always prefer a bit larger space for him."
