Wonderful Restaurant, Steaks are great. The desserts are to die for. A bit pricey but worth it. Will visit every time I am in the area.

We came from Marathon to eat here because we heard it was worth the drive and that was correct. We were with some people who had been to the Reata in Fort Worth, so we knew what to order, but the appetizers were to die for - we got the tenderloin tamales with pecan mash. Get this. The pecan mash... More

As a native Texan I have eaten my share of tamales, but the signature Beef Tenderloin Tamale was so good, I went back the next day! AND, I have to mention the buttermilk pie. I had a bet with the waitress that it could not be as good as my grandmother's pie, but I lost the bet. I would go... More

My mother, sister and I ate lunch at the Reata this week. We started out with onion rings and the roasted asparagus tomato basil soup or tortilla soup. They were both excellent. The cup of soup was bowl size. Unfortunately all three of us ordered the chile relleno for lunch. We should've broken up the order and shared entrees. However,... More

We truly loved our visit to Alpine! Reata was our favorite eating and watering hole. Fabulous food and fun times in a small intimate package. We highly recommend the grilled shrimp on onion jam and the tamales. Can't wait to go back!

Their signature restaurant is located in Fort Worth and is quite a success. Their Alpine restaurant is just as good in terms of food quality, service and atmosphere, and the place to go for an upscale dinner or lunch. Their stuffed Chili Rellenos and signature salads are the best. However, be prepared to pay Fort Worth prices for the dinning... More

The Reata is located in downtown Alpine and features an upscale menu in a restored home. The food was absolutely great--better t than the more highly touted Cochineal in Marfa, in fact. This is THE place to eat in Alpine.

In the middle of nowhere is a culinary oasis. There chicken fried chicken and steak is standard setting. In 50 yrs of dining out I cannot honestly say I have ever received better value/quality than their steak salad. But check this, in the middle of nowhere, calamari. We thought we'd take a chance on our second night there and we... More

What a great menu! Lots of interesting Southwestern offerings as well as a few unexpected items with sophisticated ingredients. We enjoyed the dining room with it's 'cowboy' atmosphere. Highly recommend this place when visiting little Alpine, TX.

Thanks to Micah, we had such a nice experience at the Reata in Alpine! Who knew that it was established prior to the one in Fort Worth?? A very nice setting and a SUPER wait person. Sadly, the food was "sub prime". We have dined at the FTW location several times, so we were expecting more.
