This is a good place to go for brunch! The staff is always quick and super friendly, the food is always good, the drinks are reasonably priced. Great place

Contrary to another reviewer i will not be paying my "several thousand" MySpace and Facebook contacts $10 each to not go. That would be a) expensive and b) silly because the food here is awesome and the waitstaff are super friendly.

I've been to Libertine several times and never had a problem. It's very busy but the wait is a short one. Brunch is awesome and so are the dinners. Tuna Nicoise salad and Pita Pizzas sound pedestrian but are flavorful, light and DELICIOUS! I haven't been to a Beer Dinner yet but plan to do so with one of my several thousand MySpace friends to whom I've recommended this crazy bar/restaurant/neighborhood hangout.

Pros: Best Sunday Brunch and 1/2 price Sundays!

Cons: A bit crowded on Sunday 1/2 price night so go after 8pm!

We have tried to eat at the Libertine on Lower Greenville on Sunday for 1/2 price several times. When they start and follow a wait list you will get served food for 1/2 price. When they tell you that they are not keeping a list it is their way of telling you "We have a bunch of our friends coming tonight and we the wait staff will make sure that they get their food for 1/2 price and you the customers that we do not really know or care about will not get seated and get your food for 1/2 price tonight". In other words do not waste your time with these people at the Libertine. If their waitstaff friends come first and customers last then what is the sense? Do the math, waitstaff friends will never pay full price for any beer and food while customers pay full price for beer and food except for Sundays for 1/2 price on food. Who brings in the revenue, waitstaff friends or customers? I can personally recommend the Libetine to several thousand, yes several thousand of my e-mail, facebook and myspace contacts but I will make sure that they all get contacted to not go there at all costs. I will personally pay them $10 to not go there as long as they in turn tell all of their other contacts to do the same. Hopefully the Libertine turns into a bar with waitstaff and friends only. If that is they way they want it to be then let them have it that way. Oh, by the way there are other places with 1/2 price food on sundays and during the week, the Quick weekend edition will list those places.
Also starting 4/10/09 when smoking is no longer allowed in the Libertine I will be sending people in there every night with hidden cameras to monitor whether or not they are following the new laws. With all said and done we will wait to find out if waitstaff arrogance wins out over honest customers being turned away on Sundays. The battle is on!

Pros: None

Cons: Waitstaff arrogance, take care of their friends and not the customers

I love this bar. The atmosphere, the wait staff, the beer selection... all awesome! The only negative thing is that they used to stand out because of their amazing menu. Gourmet food choices at reasonable prices... but recently it's become more like diner food. Gravy smothered french fries, really? The healthy choices are down to 3, my favorite salad is no longer available and for regulars like us, it's getting to be a drag. If the intention is to be a local bar with great beer and food selection... the food is bringing them down.

Let me say that before recent changes at the bar, I would have marked it as 5 stars. More about that later.

The Good: In a city where being the newest, shiniest, most expensive and exclusive bar in town is what most club owners think we want, the Libertine stands apart as a diamond in the rough. Started by the owners of the Meridian bar across from Fair Park, the Libertine maintains an Americanized European ambience: good food, with great beer, in a laid back but inviting environment. Its original draw was high quality, dare I sat gourmet style, food, at prices similar to the cost of cooking at home. This, coupled with several Belgian beers on tap and quite possibly the best rotating specialty beer menu in Dallas, drew our friend group on a regular basis. The wait staff is relatively knowledgable of beers and extremely friendly. Also, the once a month Beer Pairing Dinner (5 course meal with 5 different beers) is a great experience for those interested trying something more adventurous than a light American lager. Also there is ample parking in a dedicated side lot. Yes, on Greenville!

The Bad: A few months ago, the original chef moved on to greener pastures to be replaced by a much lower caliber cook. There have been recent changes to the menu that have unfortunately dumbed down the menu. The striped bass used to be a relatively health concoction of grilled fish on top of wild rice covered with a light saffron cream sauce. Now it's fried fish on top of Rice'a'Roni. Other modifications include the addition of "Gravy Fries" and a reduction in the formerly tasty salads. The steak and fries used to have a large medly of carmelized onions in a tangy brown sauce, but now is simply a steak with butter on top.

Conclusion: The food may be waning for now, but the beer is still nicely priced and of a wide enough selection to cover for it. All in all, we still love this as one of our default hang outs.

What a great bar! The first time I ate there I had the steak sandwhich with Mac n' Cheese and I a was hooked! The atmosphere is great and the beer selection is excellent. There are almost always new worldwide beers on tap. I went to a 5 course 'beer dinner" (each course was paired with a beer from around the world!) and it was some of the best food I have eaten since coming to Dallas.

Check this place out!!!
