10 Best Places for Lunch Meetings in Dallas
I hope this list helps you find a great spot for your next lunch meeting in Dallas!
City Hall Bistro | Downtown Dallas
City Hall Bistro is located inside The Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas. It is honestly one of my favorite spots, if not my favorite spot, to grab lunch! They have great express lunch specials and the shared plates always impress me. The staff is always friendly, which is a big plus in my book. It’s also great to stay go to the lunch meeting early and get some work done in the lobby or downstairs at Otto’s Coffee. They have two entrances- one off the street and one through the hotel lobby. I always go through The Adolphus lobby, but that’s because the space is so beautiful it puts me in a great mood!

The Porch | Knox-Henderson
The Porch was actually where I went on my first lunch meeting in Dallas! It was when I interned at American Airlines Center back in my college days. I don’t remember what I ordered, but I do remember leaving there thinking it was the coolest meeting I had ever been a part of.

The Henry | The Union in Victory Park
The Henry has been a popular spot since it first opened, but I finally had a chance to stop by and see for myself what all the fuss is about! We started out with the pretzel appetizer, and between you and I, I could have eaten the whole basket! Can’t wait to check out more of the appetizers on the menu. The burger is also a great choice if you’re hungry. It was a little too much food for me, but boy was it tasty. The lunch crowd was extremely busy, recommend you make a reservation to ensure you don’t have to wait for a table. Also pro tip: you can get your parking garage ticket validated. If you don’t mind spending a few bucks, valet is only $5.
Address: 2301 N Akard St Suite 250, Dallas, TX 75201
North Italia | The Union in Victory Park
I’ve got two words for you: THE PIZZA! I mean seriously, y’all, this pizza at North Italia is so good. I had to stop myself from eating everything at lunch because I wanted to have more as a snack later (who does that??). I can also vouch for the Zucca Chips! Between two of us we scarfed them down. Parking is the same deal as The Henry ($5 valet or validated parking garage).
Address: 2301 N Akard St Suite 280, Dallas, TX 75201
Smithy | Knox Henderson
If you’re looking for one of the cutest lunch meetings in Dallas, look no further than Smithy. I’m a bit partial to the patio, but the Texas heat is the real deal so you’ll probably end up sitting inside. You can order bright colored cocktails if you’re feeling frisky. But if it’s not that kinda lunch meeting, no judgement here. Parking is complementary valet.
Address: 2927 N Henderson Ave, Dallas, TX 75206
SkinnyFATS | West Village in Uptown
Sometimes you want healthy and sometimes you want to indulge! That’s the motto of this new Uptown Dallas hot spot. The wide range of options on the menu paired with the large space for dining makes SkinnyFATS one of the best places for lunch meetings in Dallas. The location is easy to get to no matter what part of town you are coming from. No matter if you go “skinny” or “fat”, get a chocolate chip cookie to end your meal… or at least to take home with you.
Address: 3700 McKinney Ave Ste 140, Dallas, TX 75204
Original ChopShop | Park Cities
Okay here’s the thing about Original ChopShop… you can get full at lunch and not feel miserable the rest of the day. It’s sort of voodoo magic and I’m here for it. Big tip: order the lemonade… it’s refreshing as heck. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, so don’t hesitate to ask questions about what you’re ordering. This is another restaurant I would encourage you to do an early or late lunch at… the noon crowd is a big one!
Address: 6401 Hillcrest Ave #100, Dallas, TX 75205
True Food Kitchen | Preston Center Plaza
A tried and true favorite for lunch meetings in Dallas, True Food Kitchen! Located in Preston Center Plaza, you can have your lunch and explore, too! (I was trying to do the whole have your cake and eat it too thing, but not sure if that comes across). But, anyways… True Food Kitchen is a classic in the Dallas community and you are sure to enjoy your lunch meeting there. They have seasonal menu items and I normally start there when ordering!
Address: 8383 Preston Center Plaza Suite 100, Dallas, TX 75225
bellagreen | The Hill
There are so many options on the bellagreen menu! It was honestly a little overwhelming because everything peaked my interest. The House Roasted Turkey Sandwich stole the show, but the Pita Bread and Hummus was a close second. The pita bread is house made and delicious, but I could have done with a little less seasoning. I would suggest you go in for an early or late lunch to avoid the noon hour.
Address: 8041 Walnut Hill Ln #810, Dallas, TX 75231
Sixty Vines | Crescent Court in Uptown
The atmosphere at Sixty Vines is very chic and I feel like you could seal some “big deals” over a delicious lunch. Also there is a ton of natural light in the restaurant, and everyone could use more sunshine! I highly recommend you order a board to start, because setting the mood with meat and cheese is always a good ideas.
