When Conversation Matters

“On the northwestern edge of University Park sits an exceptional white-tablecloth neighborhood bistro. The menu changes seasonally, but it retains the relaxed New American-California character that has been the restaurant’s trademark since 1985. Impressing even distinguished American chef Julia Child, for three decades City Café has been widely recognized in Texas Monthly, Food & Wine Magazine, Zagat, Wine Spectator, D Magazine, and was also recipient of AAA’s “Diamond Award”.” City Cafe is considered to be a “Neighborhood Gem” in the Dallas dining scene. “Comfortable, unpretentious, casual elegance”



“We strive for your meal at City Cafe to be a great experience, every time. We use only the highest-quality ingredients to prepare every item on our creative world-class menu – from our tender grilled fish and meats to our decadent desserts – 100% from scratch in-house daily.”


We love our customers and they love us!
