Dallas >Sevan G & G Cafe
Premium food, warm, friendly service.
This place is just all around solid.
The food is fabulous. George puts a great deal of pride and love into his profession and you can tell. It is obvious that begins with fresh, high quality ingredients, and is committed to excellence in preparation and service.
Try the Kashmir Chicken...it is devine, thedescription doesn't sound like something I would enjoy, but tried some of my friend's once, and now I am an addict!
It isn't cheap, it is high value. You can't touch food of this quality for the price. The prices are comparable to other restaurants in the area, probably lower. George cooked for dignitaries back in Lebanon, he created the Kashmir Chicken/Shrimp created for them.
The atmosphere is modest but elegant and romantic.
They always great me with a warm, GENUINE smile, like they are welcoming me into their home. But I must say that I do come in smiling and have been there several times. Still, like other people have said, it doesn't take long for them to know you by name. They are extremely humble and perhaps uncertain socially until they get to know you. They are dedicated to your dining experience.
excellent food...poor service.
My wife and I went on the recommendation of many here.
The food was excellent, some of the best here in Dallas.
However, the service had a lot to be desired. It's a family run business...I get it. But, is it too much to ask for the waitresses to simply say hello and thank you? Is it too much to ask for them to have a smile on their face?
They looked like they didn't want to be there. Their attitude made that clear.
I'd say to the owners, be careful, many of us go out to eat for both the food and atmosphere. You have the food down, but your service may cause others like myself, to choose another place to dine at.
Great place to eat. I love their salad, pies, kabobs and hummus. The lady who served us was very friendly. Decor could be updated a little.
Starlight93. Not trying to start anything but the picture for "starlight93", I can't help but notice that you are an employee at Sevan. I have been in there many times and I recognize you from your picture. While I know you must be proud of where you work or you would not have taken the time to come on here and write what you did, I also don't think this is a fair practice. I also think it is extremely unprofessional for you to call out other reviewers. If you offer a salad on your menu it should be up for review just as any other item is. Lastly, you are exaggerating a bit on the average price of an entree. It is not $9 but closer to $12 or $13. Not that there is a huge difference but that is misleading for potential diners. Just wanted to put this out there.
Sorry to say....
Going off the reviews on here my boyfriend and I decided to try this place last night. We're new in town and big foodies so we're always looking for restaurants that are unique and have something different to offer.
I hate to hinder the love here but I have to say this place was a huge disappointment. This was not helped by the fact that we drove almost 50 miles round trip (we're in Arlington) to eat here.
Right off the bat I was not impressed by the menu. The food seemed like pretty simple Greek fare that could easily be prepared at home for a lot cheaper. It's not that a lot of the food didn't sound good but again I'm not going to pay $15 for grilled chicken and roasted vegetables that I can prepare in my kitchen any night of the week.
We decided to start off with the roasted eggplant dip. It was okay; not terrible, not great.
We then both decided to get the grilled chicken salad. (Not planned that way just happened to be the only thing that either of us could half way get excited about since at least it did mention a homemade dressing and an array of vegetables)
The salad was a good salad. It was plentiful in chicken and did have all the mentioned vegetables...sort of. My salad had no bell peppers whatsoever, not the first one. My boyfriend's salad, however, was loaded with them. Not even exaggerating I would say he had the equivalent of an entire bell pepper in his salad. Since he loathes bell peppers I felt really bad for him but offered to take some of them off his hands.
The place was not busy at all. Plenty of empty tables which I found odd for a Friday night between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. Although they were not busy the service was extremely slow. I asked for a refill when our meal came and received one approximately 10 minutes later. When we were finished eating we sat there with our forks and napkins on our plates clearly indicating we were finished eating. After another 10 to 15 minutes of sitting like this with no acknowledgment from the staff I called our server over and asked for our ticket. After another 5 minutes or so she came back from the kitchen, empty handed, looked at our table and did the "Ohh" and went back to return with our ticket a few more minutes later.
Obviously I was not at all impressed by this place. The food was decent but all factors considered I was pretty disappointed to drive 50 miles and spend around $40 (drinks, tax, and tip included) for eggplant dip and two salads.
Fantastic food/prices/decor/service. We learned about this restaurant because the owners were our neighbors. I didn't think I would like Lebanese food, but I just flew all the way back from SD after we moved there, to come back and eat George and Grace's food. How is that for dedication to their cooking. They believe in only using the freshest, best ingredients and will except nothing less. Their children help out once in a while and are learning great Christian, American values and how to work hard and enjoy our freedoms. We love their Cafe and would recommend everyone to try it out. You too will be a fan for life! I love their shrimp curry and my daughter loves their chicken Kabob!
Best Greek Food in Dallas!. I discovered SEVAN close to a year ago. The hand-made fresh hummus won my heart over from the start, but I have since grown to love everything on the menu. They make all of their food fresh daily and they use organic ingredients. Another thing that keeps bringing me back is the fact that this is a family owned and operated restaurant. I eat out ALOT and tend to frequent the same restaurants over and over. Sevan is the only place that recognizes me by name. It's a good feeling at the end of the day. Great customer service, GREAT food, great experience!!! and its BYOB
Awesome food in a casual, friendly environment. We LOVE this place!!! George and Grace (the owners) are so warm and welcoming every time we come in and the food is delicious. The BYOB option is great -- bring what you love from home or you can purchase at the liquor store next door. It's the perfect place to sit with friends and catch up while eating your favorite Mediterranean delights. Everything we've ever ordered here has been good, but we almost always order a mazza plate (dolmas, eggplant dip and humus) and the chicken tawook. Both are excellent! This is not a trendy, see-and-be-seen atmosphere, so if that's what you're looking for, this isn't your place. But if you're looking for delicious food in a warm and friendly environment, there's no where better!
This has been our favorite cafe since we tried it a couple of years ago. It is our "go to" place for birthdays, anniversaries, etc... because--we can bring our favorite wine, it is very reasonably priced, great ambiance, family owned and friendly--but most important--it is in our opinion, the best food in Dallas, TX. Every meal there has been perfectly prepared and presented. My husband loves the gyro plate and I try everything including the Chicken tawook (kabob), grilled talapia, Kashmir chicken, various salads, and homemade baklava.
It has zip curb appeal, but when you pick up your fork, you will know "you have arrived" at one of your favorite eating locations. Don't miss it!
