Description: Butterfly Restaurant is a fresh concept providing modern-creative and traditional styles of cooking, signature drinks and entertainment in a relaxed, upscale atmosphere. Our menu features a selection of tapas, an eclectic array of small plates and a fine, diverse selection of dinner entrees. Our menu changes with the seasons to provide the freshest and highest quality ingredients available. Beverages include an impressive wine cellar with price points attractive to all, a full bar and our signature Martinis, all named after a butterfly. We have live music several nights per week in our piano lounge and a patio to enjoy the beautiful weather. We have two private dining rooms to accommodate special events, business meetings or other occasions as well as a separate dining room that can be used to accommodate larger parties or events. We believe in the complete dining experience so as much attention is paid to the training of our staff as is paid to our excellent cuisine.

Butterfly is closed and for many good reasons. It completely misjudged the market in NE Tarrant County for an expensive, snooty, upscale tapas bar. Service was, well it was just awful! And the food was overly expensive for what you got. Glad to see this experiment gone.

This restaurant is closed. Apparently they ran into some problems mid-2012 and closed before summer ended. They had an interesting menu and we never had a service problem the three times we ate there early in 2012 but clearly something happened.

Went on a recccomendation, walked in to a putrid odor, waiter said was "normal". After wating 20 minutes for our drink order we left as we could not stand the "bathroom" smell.

We went here on a day-before-Mother's day dinner on Saturday. Most of the restaurants in the area had lines out of the door with long waiting times, and then we found this restaurant in Yelp. We drove by, found no lines, and not a whole lot of cars in the parking lot (Sign #1). Bingo! An uncrowded restaurant pre-Mother's day?... More

I was a member of a wedding party that had the rehearsal dinner at this restaurant. I'm sure the food would have been lovely if it had been served to the entire party in a timely manner. They seemed totally and completely overwhelmed and unable to cope with the numbers and I think a lot of it came down to... More

We dined at Butterfly for the first time last night and had a terrific time. We had a drink at the bar to start with and Devon the bartender was engaging and suggested we try the cheese platter. It was easily the best small plate we have had anywhere in a long,long time. We decided to try some of the... More

We had dinner there last night and loved the environment. The decor is beautifully done - they spared no expense! The menu is not Spanish although it is touted as a Tapas restaurant (they do offer a paella dish). They had very small portions but very good quality food. I would say that they may consider some marketing efforts as... More

This restaurant is beautifully decorated and a great place to impress a date or a client. Save your dollars up! It is expensive! The tapas were excellent but we had to order several to design a meal. The service was friendly and fabulous. We went on a Tuesday evening and there was hardly anyone there. I wonder how long they... More

One of the worst dining experiences I've had in a long time. EXTREMELY overpriced is an understatement. This place doesn't even deserve 1 star. This place touts itself as a tapas restaurant. The tapas we received was a joke. $12-$15 for 3 bites at best. Not to mention that it took well over 30 minutes for our tapas to even... More

Interesting menu, broad wine list, lots of options. Friendly server, the owner even came by to introduce herself and say welcome. The disappointments came in the pacing of the service - particularly in the length of time it took to get our main courses, then to get our checks and then to finally get our bill, split amongst our group...
