Dallasites love Sunday brunch, and this is the best place to have it. We've been at least six times and always had a good experience. The regular menu has a lot to offer, and we've been impressed with the specials as well.

Picked this as a place to take my doctor son and wife in a nice part of Dallas, it was excellent. Food was unique and served "shar" style, meaning you ordered dishes you like, then shared with the others. We had 5 different items- sheep skewers were the best. Great selection of beers as well. More than I have seen... More

The food and atmosphere are both superior at this restaurant. We went for the 2nd time for Saturday brunch and there has been consistency both times. I highly recommend Mother and Child reuinion. A fried boneless chicken breast on grits with jalapeño gravy and poached eggs! Phenomenal! Our server was very personable, attentive and met all expectations.

The food here was good but would I come back? Probably not. It's a different concept for someone looking for variety, but as a tourist, I would skip it. We shared a bunch of plates, some I really liked, some I didn't. I was mostly looking forward to the Nueske's bacon stick for dessert, but it was so rich and... More

After circling the restaurant three times (not easy to spot), finally found the valet! I had the gyro - one of my favorites!! The others had the grilled cheese (gruyere!) and chicken salad. All of us were very satisfied. Great service and nice atmosphere.

The inside of this restaurant is really pretty, unfortunately the main dining area was full so we were in the covered patio area. Not quite as nice but the food and the service was wonderful. I would encourage reservations to be in the main dining area.

This was highly recommended to us while in Dallas and my food came extra spicy. My husband however loved his food. Great dishes but be prepared if you like food milder. They have an incredible bar menu. The staff was great as well

Two from your nation's capitol and two from Plano, TX, first time visitors to this (any) gastropub, were overwhelmed by friendly, helpful service and really, really good food. We ordered plates to share - Diver Scallops were delicious but scanty, only four scallops on the plate, Tomato Sausage Gratin with toast was really remarkable, then Ribs, of course Ribs because...

My friends a couple weeks back made reservations for Saturday brunch here and I am smitten. The menu is interesting. The brunch cocktails are interesting and the bloody mary was a meal in itself. I had the etouffee benedict and outside of New Orleans, the flavors were genuine. Just enough of the etoufee to wet the biscuits. The eggs were... More

I was confused when my GPS told me I had arrived and I didn't see the restaurant. It's kind of hidden and you have to turn onto a street (can't recall the name) to get to it. They also have complimentary valet. They have a wide selection of beer and the food was all unique. I loved my Cesar salad... More
