We all know that Dallas-Fort Worth is full of premium dining destinations. But a great restaurant experience is built upon several varying factors. You can’t just have great food to stand out in this town. Restaurants need superior service and a unique vibe that makes locals want to come back time and time again. Well, OpenTable sat down and analyzed their database of customer feedback for more than 26,000 locations to come up with their 100 Best Restaurants in America 2017 list. They combined factors like service, food quality and atmosphere, crunched the numbers of more than 12,000,000 reviews and came up with their recommendations based on their users’ opinions. Of Texas’ five recognized restaurants, locals can find four of them right here in Dallas. Check out where you should venture to for your next date night.   

Le Bilboquet – Dallas

To experience authentic cuisine from a romantic date night hot spot, check out Le Bilboquet. This French bistro is a neighborhood favorite in the Knox area and is known for its combination of French stables and French-American fusion specials. The elegant eatery takes advantage of their nearby amenities by sourcing organic, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. But don’t worry, they still have plenty of French wines that will take you on a mini European adventure. 

Uchi – Dallas

Uchi does not give diners an ordinary sushi experience. Once you walk into the Japanese restaurant, you should expect the unexpected. Their combination of new textures and flavors pushes locals out of their comfort zone in the best way. Even if you are new to this kind of cuisine, their knowledgeable staff makes the menu approachable. Just let them know what kinds of foods you like and the budget you are looking to stay within, and they will guide you through your options and give suggestions specific to your taste.  

Neighborhood Services

For a more American-traditional menu, Neighborhood Services could be your new go-to. Its main plates range from their upscale Caramelized Scallops to their beautiful Filet of Beef Tenderloin. They also have upscale interpretations of your favorite Texas dishes with their own Tortilla Soup Tribute and Dry-Aged Burger. They also have a wide range of Kentucky bourbons that help you round out your hearty meal. 

Shinsei Restaurant

Shinsei has been a Dallas staple for modern Asian dining for more than 10 years with their traditional bar and Pan-Asian Kitchen.  You’ll find high-quality, fresh fish in all of their rolls alongside other meat options for those looking to stray away from the seafood. Their sushi menu includes plenty of your favorite rolls alongside plenty of unique creations you'll come back for. The hip neighborhood vibe lets you relax while sipping on tasty sake and enjoying their delicious specials. Plus, its romantic interior helps diners feel like they are a part of Dallas’ booming nightlife without having to travel to downtown.
