Restaurant review: Hotel St Germain in Dallas
Everything was perfectly prepared, well plated, and presented with decorum.
DALLAS Hotel St Germain is extravagant. It has all of the accoutrement that make it both gentle and elegant. The attention to detail, alone, makes this restaurant and hotel a star.
We were greeted at the door by our host. Before we were seated, he gave us a tour of the downstairs area in the hotel, including the original fireplace found in the library. Everything was decorated for Christmas in a manner well suited to the hotel.
We were seated in front of a tall window that overlooked the porch area. Our waiter could not have been nicer, and I would like to take a minute here to acknowledge how much his excellent service and attention to detail enhanced our dining experience. He served everything with white gloves. He did not rush us. He was so very polite and patient ... and professional.
The dinner was a coursed menu, arranged beforehand. I cannot think of a single thing that was not perfectly prepared, well plated, presented with decorum, and appreciated while consumed.
