When we arrived the manager did not greet us when he did he didn't care whether we had a reservation or not. The immediate noise level in the restaurant was very high we asked if they could turn the music down one or 2 dB. They accommodated that request.

The food took forever to come out and when we order an extra pizza they did not have any available. The music got very loud like a disco and experience was very uncomfortable

Management Fail. We had reservations for 16. They didn't have enough stools for the table and they didn't have enough staff. The server tried her best but management set her up to fail. We had to find our own bar stools, menus, table ware. And when I spoke with the manager he didn't really care. Saying "Everything was there before you arrived. " We were on time and we didn't remove anything so that was a really stupid and unhelpful answer. We will try it again but we hope they change the manager. Oh, and he was just playing on his phone all evening instead of helping the server. The server was great though. Food was good and it is a beautiful space. I left my phone number if the manager wanted to follow up. He didn't. We didn't want anything for free. Still don't. We just wanted things fixed.

We went to Quill at the urging of a friend and we're highly impressed. The food was absolutely amazing and the acoustic guitarist they had sang beautifully. We had the oysters, crawfish and artichoke dip, and shrimp etoufee along with a few of their signature drinks. It's a really fun, unique place!

Quill needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up - a bar, a lounge or a restaurant. The joint is currently not doing a good job of any of them. When our waitress brought our drink order, the bartender appeared to have forgotten the gin (on the rocks so it was fairly easy to see what was there) while the requested limes resembled last month's brownish leftovers. The rest of the drinks were ok but nothing special. While the waitress (and manager) gushed over the new menu, we were disappointed that several of the great looking items pictured on the website (cool looking tacos, juicy burger/slider) did not carry over to that new menu. The food itself was fine - nothing was disappointing but nothing to rush back for either. The vibe was dull - maybe we missed the after work crowd and came to early for the late night group. Regardless, I am glad that we went once but we won't rush back for a return visit.

We went for dinner at 7:30pm and were the only people in the restaurant. Obviously, the place is more geared to late night drinks and dancing. Drinks were very good and generous. Food was a little un-even, tough we appreciated the effort and creativity. Best items were the broccoli appetizer and the Brussels sprout appetizer. Tried a few chicken dishes as well, but found them a little overworked/complicated, and too sweet. Service was attentive and friendly.

Worst restaurant I've been too in a long time. The service was AWFUL. They don't want to be a restaurant, they want to be a night club so I'm not sure why they named it Kitchen & Cocktails. The cocktail was watered down and I had to get up and find the waitress who was inside sitting on one of the couches. Save yourself and learn from my mistake.

Great cocktails, abysmal food and worse dinner service. Club masquerading as a bar masquerading as a restaurant. Really cool space, good drinks, awful everything else. Flavors of the food were poor. Apps badly over cooked, frites with the steak frites were soggy and low quality, chicken and waffles were very fatty, sickly sweet, and sadly small, and snapper looked like a one-pan recipe from Rachel Ray. Needs food program overhaul.

There was literally no one in the restaurant. This is really a night club, not a restaurant. The write up in open table needs to better represented. The service was slow and the server kept saying - I'll go next door to Oak to get - you name it, the right wine glass to serve the wine in, the dessert, the espresso, etc. the best food was the appetizers and the dessert. The snapper was dry, you had to look hard for the mushrooms on the pasta and there was virtually no seasoning or broth/sauce. The pasta was fresh tho. The steak was very small and an odd cut. During dessert the entire restaurant was reconfigured and all the staff really came to work at about 9:30. Very odd experience and if affiliated with Oak, isn't a very good representation of Oak's superb service, food quality, etc.

Staffing was not sufficient for two 12 party tables. Both of us had reservations so this was not unexpected. Lights were dimmed and music turned up loud fairly early in the evening which made for difficult dinner conversation. Pork was really dry and one entree was completely forgotten! Appetizers were tasty but fairly small.

We went for a romantic dinner, and they were playing CBS crime drama on 3 large projectors at 7:30 PM Valentines Day. Wonder what they play on regular days, TMZ? Beef Head management.

Otherwise the place is gorgeous, modern, sexy, great drinks. For the Design District it needs to be classed up to match the NY style interior. I felt a little Meh, leaving. Which I should not have been in that environment. A case where staff takes away from the location and bones of what this place has going for it.

I asked for a few things that were just ignored. Maybe they decided "she doesn't need that" lol? Not sure? If I go back it will be late at night for after cocktails only, and only due to the location and atmosphere. Good people watching. Management...., I do not see hope in that arena.

The ambiance was nice as was the waitstaff, but our waitress seemed nervous. She didn't quite understand our order, so we had to repeat several times. In the middle of our dinner, the staff started setting up for the club portion of the night, so it was odd to see folks moving furniture and tables.

Excellent service and hospitality. Still working out some of the kinks but the intent and concern for your happiness was evident.

Food and drinks were delicious - well presented and executed. The portions on the main are on the smaller side - at least the chicken and waffles was tiny. But the apps were appropriately sized to share for two

Drinks were on the pricier side but they are sophisticated cocktails w quality spirits and ingredients.

I would go back. Music was fun and stimulating but appropriate too!

The decor was impressive and the space is beautiful!

We were sat at a high top after we requested a low top. The food portions were micro sized. Waitress was very nice but would disappear for long amounts of time. Before we were finished, the staff started breaking down tables to convert the restaurant into a bottle service bar. It was extremely distracting and rude. I hope they can figure out a better way to host a restaurant because it's a beautiful space.

We went for New Year's Eve on a last-minute basis. I was surprised they had availability because I had heard good things. They offered a set menu for the occasion which is typical for NYE. Let me just say I was delighted overall. The ambiance and decor is amazing. The food menu was well thought-out, delicious and just the right proportion. Cocktails are out of this world. The staff is friendly and attentive and the GM, Steve, is a really good dude. The staff also did a good job managing the heavier crowd for the occasion. To cap it off, the DJ was the best I've heard in Dallas in the last ten years if you like ambient, chill music that hasn't lost its groove. I lived in LA for years and this place rivals any swanky venue in West Hollywood or Santa Monica. Quill isn't cheap, but in this life you get what you pay for. I highly recommend it!

The good - The food was fantastic, nothing too unique but it was flavorful. We had the pork, chicken and waffles, all the appetizers, and sides. The Jerusalem artichoke dish was a huge hit at our table and we ended up ordering more. The oyster shooters were interesting and the two savory options were amazing.
The odd - When we walked in I wasn't sure if this was a restaurant or a club. It's a beautiful room and I could imagine an amazing NYE party in the spot but for dinner it wasn't quite right. The seats weren't comfortable, there was a random huge TV that gave a sports bar vibe off. And they let us know they clear out the tables for the evening. Overall I would rate the place as good and if they got the ambiance right for dinner it would be climbing up there as a hot spot in dallas.

Quill is a lounge bar trying to be a restaurant. The drinks were fabulous and they should just stick to that. Let's start with the menu: the apps are all sushi. All of the choices except edimame are raw, nothing cooked, no vegetarian options. The only thing cooked on app menu is hamburger sliders....heavy heavy heavy. The salad was ok except it was an entire head of lettuce on the plate. The entree was fair: striped bass. My husband got the chicken and waffles and that was the most awful thing I have ever eaten. The chicken was minced and made into a square patty. It was, in my mind, pretty close to catfood. It was inedible. We did not even want to attempt dessert.

The most insulting thing was that NO ONE in that place cared that their customers were not happy. We told the waitress that things were not good and she just never came back! We were served by the bartender and manager from that point on! Very unprofessional! When my husband sent his food back, he was not even offered anything else to eat. AND, they charged us for the entree. No one stopped to ask what was wrong, why we didn't like the food, or apologized for the bad experience. The bill was $200 for 4 people and for that price, I expect better.

Needless to say, this bar/lounge should not attempt to be a restaurant, should not serve food, and stick to the drinks. There are WAY better places to eat in Dallas for that price. Don't waste your time or your money!

What a great find! We made our reservation and got seated on time. We sat on the patio next to the Fireplace and the ambiance was superb. They started a new menu and we ordered 5 things from the menu to try and all were OUTSTANDING. Hamachi, Ahi Tuna Tostada, Texas Roll, Lobster Roll Cones, and Steak and Frites. Service was spot on. Great find that we are coming back this Saturday with party of 8. Steve the Manager stopped by our table twice to chaeck on us and that was a very nice touch.

This is strictly a bottle service bar. Not a restaurant. There are only 8 or so choices for small plates and that's it. The food is not good, bordering on gross, and overpriced for what it is. (Think 8 pieces of pancake battered fried mini shrimp out of a frozen bag from Walmart for $14) However, the establishment looks amazing and the decor is beautiful. The food component is just a joke. Maybe don't serve food? Quill needs to be more clear on what service they provide. It's ok to not try to be a restaurant if that's not their thing.
