This place is relatively new - the food was very good, but way to expensive for what they served. Its is a good place to take a date you want to impress - the ambiance is top notch, but not a "regular" place. Also - they over-season their steaks. Somewhat pretentious.

The food was fabulous....I loved the decor too. We got good service, but the prices were a little high. It's not a place that I would always go to, but I would recommend it.

I read so many mixed reviews about Ounce, that I held off going for quite some time. I have been craving Beef Wellington, and Ounce is the only place that serves it in Dallas, according to my internet search.

Most of the negative reviews have been about the service, and the hiccups that most new restaurants go through. I can overlook bad service if my Beef Wellington is great. The service and the Wellington is great at Ounce.

The Wellington was served as requested, medium rare. A previous reviewer had a problem with it being over cooked, but mine was perfect. Inside the pastry dough is a thin layer of mushroom duxelles and foie gras. On the plate is a drizzle of sauce that accompanied the Wellington very well. Wine reduction maybe?

My Wellington scratch has been itched. Next time I will try the Steak Dianne which is another of my favorites. Chateaubriand is also on the menu. I love the classics.

On to the rest of the meal. Looking over the wine list, I noticed "Sips" in the $5 -7 range. Half the price of the wines by the glass. And sure enough they were all half glasses, much more than a sip. I told waiter I would like to play with the sips, and asked if he would be willing to be in charge of the pairings. No problem. Let?s do a fish appetizer so we can have a white. I'm having beef, and I let him know I like Bordeaux and Cabs. My girlfriend is having blackened salmon, so a white that will stand up to the spice will be needed.

Every paring was a home run. He served me a cabernet malbec blend that went perfect with my steak. We had the scallop appetizer with a white and my girlfriend had another white with her blackened salmon.

The seasoning on the salmon was too much, until I tried it with the cabbage that sat atop it when served. Then it all came together. The strong spice needed the crunchy purple cabbage to balance out the flavor. Much better.

The only negative was a bit of sand in the fennel served with the scallops.

I'll never go back to Ounce again. It was such a terrible experience. I went with some of my friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. As I was walking in SURPRISE! I saw the Pizza guy in front of Ounce!!! They forget about me and friends at the bar. When I asked to be seated they didn't have my table ready. They pour the wine no once but twice! in the lady besides our table. Food You can find in any other steak house. Staff looked so fake. They looked if they didn't enjoy working there. Servers were the only ones that gave US a good service.There's so many choices of good steakhouses at Addison why go to Ounce!!!

I went to Ounce a few months back and was not impressed at all. But my wife and I had heard that the place had changed chefs, so we decided to give it one more try. Things were completely different. First, the food was much better prepared. My steak was cooked perfectly, and all the food came out at the right time unlike the previous experience. The crab cake app was cooked to perfection and the sauce was different than before. Our waiter informed us that the new chef was for the most part responsible for the changes. We eat out a lot and we will most certainly be back.

Having reservations at 8 PM one Friday, we arrived a bit early to enjoy cocktails. When we were seated at 8, there was some confusion and we were seated, but did not receive service for over 10 minutes. What a disappointment for such nice surroundings and our fist visit - the wait staff offered a complimentary desert. (Fearing's offered a bottle of complimentary Taittinger's champaign when there was an issue with the table location).

Once we were recognized, the service was very good and the food was excellent. The clam chowder was the best I have tasted on the east or west coast with fresh clam meat, followed by an entree of steak Diane, which had a wonderful blend of of flavor and it came out medium, as ordered. Try the macaroni and cheese and the risotto which can be customized with a garlic preparation.

We hope to try this restaurant again with friends and look forward to a positive experience I know the staff can deliver.

My fiance took me here for Valentine's day this past year. The food was wonderful, but our waiter was more than disappointing. This place is pretty pricey and we expected to have the phenomenal service that usually comes with such a nice place. Instead, our waiter did not pull out our chairs or put napkins in our lap. He took almost 30 minutes to bring me a glass or tea. We also had to wait for our side items to come after we had already gotten our steak. He was a nice guy but a not a very good waiter.
