Cacharel is one of Dallas-Fort Worth's premier restaurants. Cacharel has charmed and delighted diners for over 20 years and is located in Arlington, Texas on East Lamar Boulevard atop the 9th Floor of the Brookhollow II Tower. We are 5 minutes from DFW Airport and fifteen minutes from downtown Dallas or Fort Worth. Panoramic views including on a view of the new Dallas Cowboy's Stadium and Six Flags Over Texas, award-winning dinning, and original cuisine all set in a unique atmosphere overlooking the city. Cacharel offers a wide selection of steaks and seafood, with something for everyone. Private rooms are available with panoramic views for corporate and business functions, banquets, receptions, parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, galas and special events.
Mediocre food, poor ambiance (that of a cheap hotel). My steak was too salty, I sent it back, they rinsed it off and sent it back out to me. Poor experience overall, will not return. Too many better places to go in the metroplex for this kind of money. Dinner for two, no cocktails, one bottle of wine ($50) was $200.
I brought my girfriend to this place not knowing exactly what to expect. One of our first impressions was that the decor felt a bit old, like a fine retirement home, and to add to impression was the elderly who occupied most of the restauraunt.
We also ended up waiting at the front for 15 minutes with no one around to seat us. The service we recieved after finally being seated was exceptional.
When we got to our seats and recieved our menus, we found out that the prices were quite highly priced. This is not the type of place you would want to go to unless it happens to be a very special occasion. Each person will average 50 dollars or more for a meal. The food was exceptional, but did not fulfill the the money I spent.
I would not recommend this place unless you have excess money to spend.

Overall average at a high price. You would be better served going to a restaurant in Fort Worth or Dallas.
Mediocre experience for the price but nice setting. The staff seemed too inattentive to be authentically present. They were always in a hurry and passing comments were superficial. The food was average and portions small.
I went to this restaurant for a luncheon with coworkers. Our service was impeccable for the large group that we were. For an intimate restaurant, we were able to comfortably seat 11 in a separate dining area. I like that their menu changes daily. This indicates to me that their menu is dependent upon the availability of ingredients. This provides a wonderful palette of fresh flavors. The souffles have to be ordered when you are making your order because they are made fresh and brought hot to your table. The Grand Marnier souffle was divine!
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. A little pricey but well worth the cost.
Our 23rd anniversay. We decided to try this restaurant because it had good reviews. ahhhh yeah. Dont believe the hype. The ambiance is far from romantic. This restaurant is more suited for entertaining business clients than a romantic dinner. The food was way over priced, and not very good at all. Save your money, drive into dallas and go to Sambuca's . You will definitely have a more memorable experience.
While it had a great view and some of the dishes were good- duck, pecan chichen, escargotm, french coffee and a banana dessert, the others lacked flavor, yet they were beautiful on the plate. The atmosphere was odd for a french/continental restaurant as I felt like I was in renovated office space. There are better restaurants in the Metroplex and your better off saving the big bucks for those----but, the chef showed promise with some of the offerings.
In town for Super Bowl week and had dinner here last night. WOW! Very upscale, very high end food, very high end experience all around. Of course, very expensive, but I'm on an expense account, so no worries. The chocolate souffle was unreal, but came out scaldingly hot. If I have another free night before going home, I'd love to try out the seafood (I had a filet) and the other desserts.
