My husband and I visited here for the first tonight. I have to admit after hearing such great things I had pretty high expectations but I feel like the food didn't quite meet those. Our server, Scott, was great. Very knowledgable about the menu and took his time making recommendations. Appetizer/salad prices range between $13-15. We opted to split their... More

Enjoyed my first visit to the restaurant. A nice environment with a great wait staff. The crawfish appetizer was excellent, the redfish served over cornbread stuffing was a different but good combination. Don't leave without trying dessert. Their specialty is bread pudding but since I'm not a fan I tried a Carmel bomb that hit the sweet spot.

Always something(s) novel and refreshing. Good seafood (Louisiana flavors) . Rightfully received best new restaurant of the year several years ago. Quite good wine selection. Soup of the day always novel and exceptional. Try the fried Okra--best in my life. dfc

I dined at Ellerbe Fine Foods with a large group. The food, the wine (oh, the wine!) and the service were all incredible. I had the swordfish entrée, which was to die for. We all shared several of the desserts, all of which were delicious. Ellerbe will always be on my list when I am in Fort Worth. Would definitely... More

Suggest you make a dinner out of the variety of appetizers...many to chose from. Duck Confit was superb. Service was fun and charming along with good wine pairings.

This was our first visit to Ellerbe but not our last. The prices are very reasonable for food of this quality, service is first-rate, and my duck with blackberry sauce was everything I hoped it would be. I tasted my wife's halibut, which was firm, flaky and delicious. The wine selection is especially noteworthy, or you can bring your own... More

We had the swordfish and lamb. Both came out perfect and there was plenty to share back and forth for the 2 of us. It was very delicious. They have a very large wine selection to choose from or you can bring your own for a "cork fee" to open the bottle for you. No you can not open it... More

My wife and I have been to Ellerbe's on multiple occasions. I like it's unique twist on it recipes, the wine selection and wonderful relaxing ambiance. We had lunch there on a beautiful afternoon and chose to sit outside. Our server was efficient, well-informed and pleasant. We started with a delicious potato and brie soup. Light for a potato soup... More

Rabbit ravioli had very little flavor, lost in a big bit of fried dough and cream. I know rabbit is delicate, but where was the seasoning, where was the balance? Ellerbe used to be outstanding and I couldn't wait to taste the food again. Now I probably won't go again. My dining companions thought the same.

The food was disappointing and so was the wine. The service was very pleasant but there is only so far that service can go to make up for poor catering.
