St. Martin’s Wine Bistro – Dinner in a Romantic French Setting

The live piano quickly draws you into St. Martin’s Wine Bistro an old-style French setting with a romantic low lit ambiance- offering an elegant dining experience. 

St. Martins French-American Wine Bistro

 St. Martin’s Wine Bistro, located near lower Greenville, turned out to be one of the best-kept secrets in Dallas, Texas, for my boyfriend and I last night. The authenticity of this chic French-American bistro offers 5-star dinner options and an unbeatable Sunday Brunch. Live music is offered every night, and truly sets the tone for a beautiful evening. Your experience is heightened by attentive service and a wine list offering over 200 selections. In addition to the regular dining setting, a bar is located in the center of the restaurant, for those who chose to only have appetizers, sip on wine, or admire the beautiful piano tunes.

I loved the decor and dreamy setting of the restaurant, it was chic and vintage, which brought me back to the feeling of dining in Paris in a cozy setting, drifting off to the beautiful music and people around me. It was filled with old French paintings and portraits, bookshelves with old books lined the interior, and beautiful white-clothed tables with candles (the only form of well-lit lighting), introducing a welcoming yet dark and intimate scene. St. Martin’s is a mixture of new and old furnishings, but innovative and sophisticated. The waiters are sure to know the answer to any question you may have about the menu and aren’t afraid to offer their recommendations on the food and wine.

Upon arrival, you are left with an extensive list of wines by the bottle and glass (A full bar is offered if you aren’t a fan of wine).

We opted for drinking by the glass as we wanted to try a few different styles with our dinner; I chose a white Bordeaux ($10) while my boyfriend a Red ($12). After making your wine choice, you are then presented with a menu, which you must select your entire coursed dinner including dessert upon ordering (The dessert soufflé are house-made and must be ordered with dinner to have enough time to prepare). 


For starters, we both enjoyed the Champagne Brie Soup ($7), let me start by saying I am a huge fan of Champagne Brie Soup and tried it many years ago, but haven’t been able to find it since. This was worth the long desired wait, it was creamy with lovely hints of brie. (They also had a seasonal lobster bisque which looked equally as tasty.)

Entrees we chose the Surf and Turf ($45) (which included a 6 oz filet topped with a peppercorn brandy sauce and 6 oz Austrailian Lobster tail, and mashed potatoes with seasonal vegetables) and the Les Tournedos Rossini ($36) (which included Seared Medallions of Prime Beef Tenderloin topped with Fois Gras, Black Truffle, Cognac, DemiGlaze, and mashed potatoes with seasonal vegetables.) Our entrees were cooked to a perfect medium rare, the lobster sweet and succulent, and of course the vegetables a perfect al dente.

For dessert, we shared the Gran Marnier Soufflé ($7), which was well worth the wait. I’m sure after finishing the entire thing, we wished we had ordered two. Perfectly prepared vanilla soufflé with a Gran Marnier filling added tableside.

I couldn’t resist looking over the dessert list for some time, it had exceptional offerings, Godiva White Chocolate Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse, Deep Dish Apple Tart Tatin, to name a few. But I was so full after what was, an exceptional meal- I wouldn’t have been able to eat another bite.

To end the perfectly picturesque night we ordered two shots of espresso while enjoying the piano music. I was so excited to finally find a lovely restaurant where you can experience a little taste of France time and time again.




Dinner at St. Martin’s can’t return soon enough. Don’t forget to book your reservation 😉
