We are very small with only 5 tables. We believe dining should be pleasurable and relaxed, so we do not rush you through your dinner to "turn the table" to seat more people, we do not have televisions and unfortunately cannot accommodate young children. We thank you for your understanding of these matters and hope you enjoy your time with us when dining in Dallas.
