SideDisher Review: Oak Cliff’s Faz Cuisine

Another new restaurant, Faz Cuisine, has popped up in the OC. Here’s a quick take from a SideDisher:

Last night, a friend and I had dinner at Faz (Jefferson at Polk).  We were both blown away.  He had tilapia, which he said was cooked perfectly.  My filet was excellent — but I’d go back just for the asparagus.  It was that good.  Best of all, it’s BYOB (with no corkage fee!).  Since the wine was from home, we splurged on desserts — chocalate brownie sundae for him (really good), and sauteed bananas for me (really even better than the brownie).  All in all, a great evening.

I believe this restaurant is in the old Cafe Francisco space that has housed several failed restaurants over the years. So, has anyone else had a taste of Faz yet?

  1. Went there once. Unfortunately, while the food was very good for the most part, the family was overbearing. We heard about the 14 ingredient ceasar salad no less than 10 times. They trotted out out every family member and chef, most of whom way over stayed their welcome at the table and the chef even sat down with us. We were trying to enjoy a simple evening with friends and ended up spending virtually no time talking to anyone but the staff. The desserts were spectacular though…maybe if they get busy enough, there would be less time to spend with the customers.

  2. I’ve heard about Faz Cuisine several times from my close friends that live within that area. I decided to go one night and everything I had was AMAZING. The New Zealand Lamb Chops were some of the best I’ve had. It is BYOB so that was a really good thing and the staff were very pleasant to me and my friend, I would go there again!

  3. It’s funny — I went there once and the food was fantastic, but I also found that the owner spent too much time sitting down and talking with us. Actually, he did most of the talking. Every review I have read echoes the same theme. Maybe he’s reading this?
