Reader Reviews: DFW Restaurant Week 2014

DFW Restaurant 2014 is officially underway. If you haven’t made reservations, check the list and choose from this list. In case you need a refresher: DFW Restaurant Week (almost a month for some restaurants) offers special three-course prix fixe dinners for either $35 or $45, or the Cadillac Lunch Experience which features three-course lunches for just $25, at select locations.  Twenty (20) percent from each meal purchased will be donated to one of the charity partners Lena Pope and the North Texas Food Bank.  Some will participate until August 31. Here is a list of the participating restaurants.

Today SideDish begins our daily DFW Restaurant Week 2014 Reader Review posts. Every morning you will have a space to write about your experiences at various restaurants. I also encourage you to tip your servers generously and if they go over and above their normal duties, which they are doing already, take down their names, snap a photo and send them to me. Each Friday, I will post SideDish Server of the Week.

If anybody hit Preview Weekend, we’d love to read your reviews.

    What restaurant is that dessert (pictured) from? That looks good! :)

    We ate at Arthur’s last night and it was somewhat disappointing. This was our first time to participate in RW and we chose Arthur’s because we only eat seafood and the menu seemed to offer the best choices. We also had the Central Market certificate. This allowed us a fourth course, which consisted of escargot, which were delicious. Our entrée seemed to be an abbreviated portion of what you might receive if you ordered from the regular menu. The fish portion was quite small (red snapper), which was a little dry and the green vegetable consisted of three stalks of asparagus accompanied by a scoop of rice. After reading the description on the menu and then receiving the actual dish, it was quite disappointing. The fresh bread was divine as were all of the desserts (there were three of us and we tried all three). The service was impeccable but since this was our first time, I wonder if all of the participating restaurants serve small portions or is it just this restaurant?
