Update: Over Memorial Day we had the opportunity to enjoy Riata's rooftop dining area. It was a pleasant day for looking out over the city as we sat four stories above the street. (I've included new pictures).

Our first occasion to visit Sundance Square wason a late Sunday morning for brunch. REATA had an OLD WEST look to it, which made it seem so enticing.

The menu gave a short history of the establishment, so we learned that Reata is named after the Little Reata Ranch from the movie, GIANT.

Its owners carried a Western theme throughout the restaurant, which gave it an authentic flavor. Although the dining room has Buffalo and Longhorn Steer trophies mounted on the walls, you'll also find beautifully ornamented saddles and chaps displayed as artwork.

A large cowboy mural greets you in the lobby, while a statue of James Dean (as a character from the above-mentioned movie) lurks near the restrooms. Yes, the decor is Old West, but it is decidedly upscale.

I ordered apple-cinnamon French toast with bacon, which was a scrumptious mouthful. The apples were nicely warmed and syrupy; the bacon crisp and oh-so-good! Our waiter, Chad, was prompt and courteous. We discovered that he was a former marine who had once been stationed at the DMZ in S. Korea.

To make our visit even more enjoyable, a guitarist entertained in soothing tunes as we enjoyed our meal. We'd definitely return to REATA.

UPDATE: Since this original tip, we've come to Reata many times and have always had a superb meal! Our favorite time to visit is in mild weather when we can take advantage of the roof top dining area with a view of Sundance Square.
