We went here for new years eve, and they had a fixed menu. I gave the restaurant two stars because it has good ambiance and also our server, Scott, was wonderful and extremely personable. However, from the beginning to the end of this meal, everything tasted like someone in the kitchen was dumping salt on everything. The gumbo was somewhat... More

Being from Chicago, I had no idea what to expect, since a local friend made the reservation. We not only enjoyed the food, our dining experience was a hoot. All four of us had a different starter and entree, covering a good third of the menu. There was not one complaint, nothing but raves. The service was outstanding. The decor... More

The menu changes quarterly according to seasons since the produce is always (reportedly) fresh. The salads were very good and fresh. The restaurant is an old gas station. The wine list is average. The food was above average.

My wife and I ate there for lunch prior to visiting the Kimball Museum. We had read good reviews in the Dallas Morning News Guide. We were very disappointed in the bleak atmosphere, mediocre service, and bland tasting food. Too many other good restaurants, so we will not return. It was not special!

Fort Worth has a lot of great restaurants - and several of them can be found on Magnolia Ave. Ellerbe's is the nicest. In a renovated gas station, Ellerbe Fine Foods is just that - fine. And local! As much as possible, they use local ingredients - both meats and vegetables. The presentation is lovely and the food delicious. The... More

Richard King is a lovely host (adore him!) and the food here is pretty good. The wine list is extensive and the service is always lovely. Having said that, I just keep expecting tastier food from a restaurant that is rated #1 in Fort Worth. It's just not my #1 place to eat. I like this place more for lunch... More

Strange start to our meal in that the manager told us we would have to wait for a menu as they were out of menus at that particular time. After about 5 minutes, she brought us 2 menus. Our meal started off great with some frog legs and a house specialty of fried okra. The frog legs were very fresh.... More

This place is amazing! Their food is seasonal and perfect. This is a treat for any foodie. The surprise at the end of dinner is my favorite.

Agree with the previous reviewer about the peaches and Brie...but the heirloom was as advertised. 3 of us and we all tasted each other's and not one of them was bad. The wine was fine - but be careful which one you choose. Service impeccable and great casual upscale atmosphere.

This is a favorite place of my husband and I. Took my youngest sister here while she was visiting from NY. The atmosphere is always quiet, so you can enjoy conversation. The food and wine list are exceptional, as is the service. The steak was so tender you could cut it with a fork, and we traded desserts between us.... More
