Reata dinner

The food was good but not spectacular, which one expected after reading all the hype. Receptionist was a bit snobby asking about reservations. We were seated outside and had to compete with flies for the food.

Walk through the front door of the Reata and you have stepped back into the old west, just an upscale version, which is probably best:) I must say my favorite times here have been at lunch which provides a comfortable, affordable, upscale experience with a delicious menu selection from Mexican to American dishes done with flare and excellence.

Alpine is a great center to work from when exploring Far West Texas and if you are looking for a good meal the Reata is a great choice. It was Valentines weekend so it was packed but the food was still great and the service though a little stressed was still gracious. I make it a regular stop when passing... More

My friend and I visited Alpine and the surrounding towns got a weekend girls trip. We went to Reata for dinner on a Friday night. I had the chicken fried steak and my friend had the smothered chicken. Both items were incredible. The best part of the meal was the crab stuffed bacon wrapped jalapeños. Holy cow! Order them. I...

I had not been here for 8 or 10 years. It was as I remembered. Clean, busy and just average. Service was great, the price was right. I can't say I liked or disliked my food. It was just average. It is the nicest place I've seen in these parts. They are know for steak. I had chicken. Maybe next... More

You just can't go wrong when you dine at Reata. In an old house, with a fantastic patio, the atmosphere is classically Texas ranch. Everyone is friendly and polite, and you're not rushed. The menu is amazing. It's full of classic Texan fare, with fun, modern twists. The tamale appetizer is simply amazing. So is the tamale desert! You'll struggle... More

Quail over the chipotle grits was out of this world! Great little restaurant in a perfect location in Alpine, TX! Walk to almost all the shops from this wonderful location.

My husband had chicken enchiladas and I had chicken fried steak. We both had a top shelf Margarita, they were fair. This restaurant came highly recommended but i probably wouldn't go back.

We've dined several times at Reatta Restaurant in Alpine. The food is excellent and ranges from medium priced entrees like burgers or Mexican food to fairly expensive steaks and chops. They also have a nice wine list. We've always enjoyed our meals there. I highly recommend it.
