We arrived at 6:40pm with a reservation for 11. We left at 8:30pm having been served most, but not all of the appetizers ordered and only one main course (plus another main course which we had not ordered). The rest of the food ordered never came. We left. The food isn't half bad but definitely not worth the wait. Avoid

Great service and food. Stuck in Dallas on a 12 hour layover so I rented a car and came out here. Service was great. Waitress was also being very helpful about what I should do while in Dallas also even recommended something off the menu. 3 thumbs up if I had three hands.

I regret having to downgrade a restaurant previously enjoyed. We had reservations for ten people, arrived on time and were seated promptly, and then completely ignored for about 30 minutes. When we complained, we were told, very discourteously, that we would have to wait another 45 minutes until they could even take our orders. We did manage to get some... More

Will not go back. It took 2 1/2 hours to get our food last night while the rest of the restaurant was served & tables came & went.

Caravelle is a long-time restaurant in Richardson's excellent "Chinatown." They serve a very wide variety of Chinese and Chinese-American dishes, all of which are fresh, flavorful, and beautifully prepared. The restaurant is clean and pleasant, but a bit noisy at times. Service is satisfactory and hands-on. They can get overwhelmed on an extremely busy seating, but it works out. They... More

I know it was Christmas today, but that's not an excuse for poor service and rude staff. Seven of us arrived for dinner this evening at 5:30pm and only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Not bad for a restaurant that was full and it being Christmas. But it went downhill from there. It took another 30... More

I've never given a "terrible" rating before but Caravelle certainly earned it, on arguably their busiest night of the year. How could they be so unprepared? The night started well, as our group of 7 was seated within 5 minutes of arrival, despite a full house and about 15 others waiting to get in. Then it all crashed from there....... More

Went to a wedding dinner and reception there. Very lavish affair. Restaurant was kept open with restaurant guests going right through the wedding party which seemed a bit strange but neither wedding guests or restaurant patrons minded. Restaurant patrons seemed to enjoy the karaoke and music from the wedding reception. Food was very good with entrees of lobster, duck, fish,... More

I was a die hard Arc-en-ceil fan until they closed. A friend told me about this place and I have been going there ever since. I order the same thing, ground shrimp on sugar cane. The servers try and get me to order something else but I never do.
