My Lovely Bride and I were part of a larger party having dinner at Bonnell's Restaurant in SW Fort Worth on Aug. 21 as a part of our "Restaurant Week" festivities. Our server, Tammy, was quite cordial and efficient. She did not hover over us, but we did not get any sense of lack of service and are quiet pleased... More

We'd both been to Bonnell's years ago but we went there to take advantage of restaurant week. Glad we did. Food - all outstanding on the restaurant week menu. I went with the house salad - queso fresca and jalapeño infused vinegarette made for a little kick in the salad. For an entree, I went with the smoked prime beef... More

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

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
