Lonesome Dove had high quality food, excellent presentation, and fantastic service. All this, and they do it inside the great atmosphere of real western restaurant. The bar had great drink items and a good selection. Be prepared to pay for what you get, but it is totally worth it. You can reserve on Open Table.

The food here is a great cowboy food with its Dove and Froglegs. Every thing I have eaten there is great.

My husband and I were in Ft Worth for our anniversary, walking around the Stockyards, deciding where to dine when we saw Lonesome Dove. We had no reservation, but were seated immediately. The ambiance was great, the menu was awesome and unique, and the waiters were very helpful and friendly. We could not have had a better meal anywhere else... More

An absoulute must for visitors or locals. The servers are informative, friendly and attentive. We had the garlic stuffed tenderloin. Very tender and tasty.

If Rattlesnake and Rabbit sausage intrigues you then this restaurant is for you. Even if it doesn't sound appealing the taste is sublime. Elk and seared Fois Gras Sliders, curried seared shrimp and seared diver scallops and this is just a sampling of the starters. The food did nothing but get progressively better if that is even possible.

Nice quaint western atmosphere. Food was fine but overpriced in our opinion. Paying for the name association with Chef Love.
