I moved away from the metroplex recently, and upon returning for a visit without hesitation chose Bonnell's for a special night out!!! From the reservation call to the check, the service was friendly and professional. The food is presented beautifully and is consistently delicious!! The setting is relaxing and conducive to private conversations. Absolutely my favorite!

The Texas Bruschetta, elk mini tacos, and Texas shrimp and creamy grits are all amazing appetizers. We loved the chile relleno, elk tenderloin and buffalo tenderloin, too. The food is excellent. The staff is attentive and knowledgable. The only thing I don't love about Bonnell's is the decor. With the heavy wood and white, it has more of an elegant... More

Bonnell's specializes in exotic Texas themed game: elk, buffalo, quail, etc, and these were expertly prepared. But even the regular fare, such as fried calamari and even the salads were imaginatively done. Attentive but non-intrusive service, and a quiet, well appointed atmosphere made for a memorable night out. A bit more expensive than most, but worth it given what you... More

What a surprise to find such a wonderful restaurant in Ft. Worth. Wanted a nice restaurant to take my Mother to treat her for dinner for my Birthday. She did all the work so thought I at least owed her my life. I grew up in Ft. Worth and normally don't go out to eat when back home for a... More

We had a fantastic evening, excellent service from the waitstaff and management, who came out and checked on us. Food was excellent. My wife had the Mixed grill with the Elk. It was perfect! The elk had the slightest gamy flavor which is perfect, as I have had very gamy venison, and I was worried she might not like it.... More

If you judge a book by it's cover, you will drive right on by this place. If you enjoy great (gourmet) foods, you have to try this place. By no means is it inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. Check other reviews, you will see.

I would consider this a place to celebrate special occasions. It's pricey, but it's different than the usual Fort Worth steak house. My husband had buffalo and I had loin of lamb. We each had salads which were okay, nothing special. The wine selection is extensive and the service was outstanding. I can't wait to go back to try appetizers,... More
