Was Disappointed by our recent visit. Let me say the staff was great. We were seated in the garden area which would benefit greatly by some big planters, cover the dirt by the entrance door and add just a bit more lighting.. nice dining area but it needs some sprucing up. My husband's fish, the special on Saturday night, was... More

I was in the mood for a salad and on the menu I found the salads looked good so my friend and I gave this place a try. I am so glad we did. We loved the tortilla soup and the field greens salad with some added tenderloin. The service was outstanding. They have a wonderful outside eating area that... More

I go to Riata at least once a year with a large group. The kitchen, hosts and wait staff are incredible We order from a special menu and they consistently get all orders out in a very timely and efficient manner. Now about the food. It is incredible. I love everything I have ever been served there. The ambiance? Perfect!

We were later returning to Alpine than had planned but got to Reata in time to sit in the bar area and order dinner. The service is friendly, the ambiance comfortable rustic and the food excellent. I try to eat there once each trip to Alpine and will look forward to the next time.

I didn't expect to find a great restaurant like this in little ole Alpine. The Tenderloin Tamales were a nice starter and the Pan-Seared Pepper Crusted Tenderloin with Port Wine Sauce was amazing. I left stuffed. Great wine list (again a pleasant surprise) and sit on the patio if the weather is nice.

This was my first time at this Reata's (I have been to the one in Fort Worth) but I was not disappointed. The ribeye, quail, jalapeño grits, and molten cake were all wonderful. Plus, they have a great wine selection. You will pay a little more for this meal, but it was worth every penny!

We have been to this restaurant in the past and had a wonderful experience. This was not the case on our recent visit. We had a group of 14 and the first thing the waitress did was offer us separate checks, which was good. However when she was taking our drink orders she did not match up the couples to... More

I love this restaurant. I had the Carna Asada - Flank steak with enchiladas on top. I substituted mixed veggies and buttery mushrooms for the rice and beans. The dish was amazing. I requested med.-rare and it was PERFECT! This can be tricky with flank steak. It was soooo tender and juicy. The bartender was my waitress and she was... More

A little pricey, but pretty worth the price. Amazing shrimp and calamari appetizers (the biggest chunks of calamari I've ever seen!). Excellent steaks and veggies and the drinks were very tasty!

Because we love the FTW location, making Reata our first stop in Alpine was a given. I made reservations a few days prior and was glad I did. We had delicious pomegranate margaritas on the lovely patio, then moved inside to the rustic dining room for dinner. The food was good, the servings large. We had the evening specials, salmon...
