My friend and I decided to try this place out cause we were running errands in the neighborhood. We were BLOWN AQAY by the experience. Chris and Renee (sp?) were incredibly attentive. They have a VAST array of handcrafted cocktails and a large menu. My friend had two different cocktails and she was fawning over them. I ordered off the menu and went with a Bloody Mary. BEST bloody mary I've had in Dallas. They make their own mix and you can tell a HUGE difference. Only down side was that they don't include any garnishments you may find in BM's at other places (olives, celery, bacon, etc.)
We both picked the chicken avocado salad and the chicken was spectacular in it as well as the dressing. We were very (full) happy campers.
We collectively decided this is our "new place" for our monthly get togethers and that The Porch can expect to never see us again! :-)

First time at this restaurant. It was during restaurant week. We had friends come from Florida so we adjusted the reservation and went there. Great food, very good service and very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend it

My husband and I visited Origin for the Dallas Restaurant week dinner menu special. This food is paleo inspired which means simple wholesome tastes with lots of veggies and great meat selections. I had the stuffed chicken breast which was full of ricotta cheese and spinach and my husband had the steak served over vegetables and cauliflower puree. If you like clean eating this is the place for you. We will be back.

The food was incredible, but the service left A LOT to be desired. It wasn't a packed night (only 5 tables including ours were seated when we arrived) but took almost 10 minutes to take our drink order. Nobody was in site so I couldn't flag somebody down to take it. The service got better as our food was brought out until after we finished our entrees and waited for dessert for another 10-15 minutes. Then it took 10 minutes to flag down somebody to bring our bill, then another 10 minutes to actually receive the bill. Very slow and underwhelming service.

The ambiance is very cute and casual. The servers are dressed very casual however everything comes together exceptional well. The food was superb!! Truly outstanding, fresh, and unique which pairs well with their refreshing drinks. Try the lavender gin cocktail.

Very interesting and fresh menu. They focus on seasonal and paleo-friendly eating, so you can feel good about indulging here. The service was a little scattered, so it appears to be a bit disorganized. One POS behind the bar isn't helping either. That said, everyone was very friendly and pleasant to interact with.

Shady business establishment! 1) we had a party of 3 and only 1 of us ordered extra bacon but the waiter brought out 2 dishes with extra bacon and said the cooks accidentally added it. He then proceeded to charge us for 2 sides of bacon!! We let it go since it was only $3.
2) they over charged my credit card by $20!!!
The food was mediocre and the service was slow! Our reservations were at 11:30am and we didn't leave until 1pm because it took 20 minutes for our food to come out. Everyone in our party ordered sweet potato hash so it wasn't even something that takes a while to prepare!

Service was good. Gnats and flies wouldn't leave us alone. They forgot to put sauce on my husbands filet which tasted bland without. I ordered flank steak which came with 6 pieces, sounds like a lot but it was pretty small and sloppily plated. Without complaining the staff and kitchen knew they had messed up by forgetting the sauce on steak and came out to apologize. Small details matter like this because without that sauce it wasnt good at all. I love the idea of paleo restaurant but I wouldn't go back. :(

Not sure if it was just an off night, but most of everybody's food was overcooked, the A/C was leaking water on me all night, and although they are very friendly service was spotty. Also having an open kitchen was a downfall that night as the kitchen staff kept dropping everything causing very loud bangs.

As always, we have an amazing time when we get to spend time at Origin. The food is always as expected and delicious. The service, no words can describe the love the staff has for the place. They have always greeted us with open arms and smiles.
The two stars for brunch is either the Hash bowl (with ground beef and an avocado) or the brisket chilaquiles. Never hurts to add a Paleo pancake to the mix either!
This is also one of the places that has amazing coffee, the almond milk lattes never disappoint.
Rolando, Joey, Cait, and the rest of the staff are great!
Out of half the menu by lunchtime
Poorly run. They probably have about 8-10 total brunch options, including dessert, and and they were out of about half of the main ingredients by 11:30 am. They only had 1 dessert option and that was not available either. I would not come back.
Noisy atmosphere and quietly spoken waiter
We went for mother's day brunch to try the paleo pancakes, when walking into the place, I noticed that they seated us directly in a booth across from the chefs, where my particular seat echoed. I asked the waiter several questions but he was so quiet, and had such a quite voice, even when I asked him to speak louder, I could barley hear him. I have perfect hearing and so does my parents and we were struggling to find reasons to come back due to atmosphere. Overall the food wasn't a main seller and sadly, we were disappointed because of all the exciting reviews surrounding this place.
Family of five with multiple food allergies
We loved this place and felt normal here, because the staff knew every ingredient and could steer us so well to items we could have. We still had MANY choices! The drinks -- homemade sangria with real berries and the golden fleece were delicious...complete with gluten free liquors, too. The only negative was the huge television, and the restaurant is loud.
Healthy food w nice atmospherr
Kale w squash had way too much kale and the squash was buried deep on the bottom of the dish. Kale was fried and greasy which made it much less healthy. Friend's fish was very good. Burger average. Steak not done right the first time
Deliciously Amazing experience
Just moved to Dallas and my wife and I went here for brunch as I stumbled upon it using my Yelp app. No reservations and showed up around 11:30 am and we were seated in about 30 minutes. No problem as we were able to get a drink at the bar. I would have waited an hour for the food we enjoyed. I had the smoked brisket hash and my wife the smoked salmon. We ordered a side of the smoked andouille sausage to share. Simply put...we agreed it was the best we have had. Service was great and food came out promptly (but not too prompt as that is scary and annoying). We will definitely go back to Smoke and surely when we are entertaining out of town guests.

Staff was happy to take care of us. Our order of their margarita was sent back and they graciously brought us a different cocktail. The fillet was tasty but had several pieces of griscile. (Spelling?) the side of brussel sprouts that came with the flat iron steak were unusually soggy. The flat iron steak was good. We really enjoyed the side of fries, too. This was my first dinner here after several lunches. Still good but prefer their yummy salad options better.
I went here during the week for dinner with a friend who I hadn't seen in about 5 years. We were thrilled to see each other and it ended up being the perfect ambiance for us. The infused vodkas were stellar, the warm brussel salad was to die for, and my friend was extatic that she could eat dessert as well (she sticks to a paleo diet and there was a paleo option!). Everything was delicious and the service was great!

Food is fantastic. We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time. The food also took about 25 minutes to come out. Then out of dessert when lunch was over. No patio seating as described. We were told by the hostess that they don't have the permit.
