Haven't been here since October when the food was amazing. This time things were mediocre. No friendly greeting...food was average ..prices have gone up. Friends had chicken fried steak I had scallops over pasta which were underdone and the sauce was dull. Bathrooms were dirty. Yeah cute place but not so much the food these days!!!

This is truly an awkward place. The restaurant is located in a gas station, and is despite the location an excellent and very “chic” restaurant. The service was quick and very attentive. The décor is nice and makes the place ideal both for formal and informal lunch/dinning. The food is absolutely excellent, and the portions are Texas big. The prices... More

Ordered the house salad, the butternut squash soup (this was so good) and the Stuffed Pork Chops with angel hair pasta last night. Let me just say the cream sauce was amazing, the lobster stuffing was spicy but paired good with the sauce. The pork chop was cooked to perfection and a the one plate was enough for us both... More

We've had this place on our short list of restaurants to try for a couple of years now, and we finally made the 45 minute trek this evening. Chef Point didn't disappoint. Despite just opening their new patio the night before and several warnings and apologies in advance noting that they were still "working out the kinks" in the kitchen... More

Like everyone else, we were expecting great food, but we weren't expecting the rude staff. Our waitress ignored us when she knew that 45 minutes was taking way too long for our food. We had the manager come over and she was rude and blaming everyone instead of taking responsibility and apologizing. NO apology was given. Then when our food... More

If we hadn't driven and hour to eat here, if there wasn't so much hype, and if this restaurant wasn't in a gas station....nothing would stand out....especially the food. More of a gimmick than anything else. Disappointing.

We has the blackened stuff chicken and chicken fried steak, both excellent. The crab cake appetizer was pretty tasty as well. I was little dubious when I heard this was in a gas station, but once you are inside you dint even notice

Having done some research for good places to eat while visiting Ft. Worth, I stumbled on the rave reviews for Chef Point and was intrigued, so I put it on our "maybe" list. As it turned out, we needed to eat before going to an event we had scheduled, so I called Chef Point from our hotel, to see if... More

Let me start by saying that this place is in a gas station. They have expanded and the inside is upgraded a bit. They have a great wine list with cheaper options to high end. They had an amazing Port for an after dinner drink. Let me just say that we had a party of 15 and we were all... More
