This is a fantastic upscale eatery. This service was excellent and the waitstaff very friendly. I highly recommend the Ruben which was stacked high with corn beef and some amazing slaw on toasted rye bread. wow!!!

Modern and sleek decor is the only thing special about Little Red Wasp. Food is ok, not creative at all. Service on a slow not was slow and stiff. In a city with many unique and enticing options we were expecting something more from this cleverly named restaurant. Doubt we will return.

Thank you for your feedback. As a new restaurant, we appreciate all that we can get. We are in the process of adding a new daily feature we will call "red plate specials". We want to be able to add a few more options without changing the menu completely. We'd love it if you gave us another try. In general, we've had excellent response to our dishes. Thank you, Jason Miller.

Came off like an upscale diner. Nice atmosphere, plenty of beer available.

Kept hearing great things about their reuben. It was good, but nothing I would brag abou.t

For two people at lunch it ran about $50 after tip.

We tried this place last night (23 Nov 13) based upon a review in the local paper, and it was spot on for quality and service. It is a new place that features a mixture of comfort food and some upscale offerings, but the prices are reasonable and family friendly.

The queso and corn tortilla chips appetizer was very tasty; they also have a house made ranch dip with house made potato chips that looked very appealing as well.

My wife had the Greek salad, and it was a very large portion that came with four huge poached shrimp. I had the crispy shrimp and fries, which came with four of the same sized shrimp, and a huge accompaniment of fries. More than enough to satisfy a hungry diner on any evening.

Other menu offerings include a chili dog fully loaded, a burger with all the trimmings, as well as a NY strip that clocks in as the most expensive thing on the menu at $36.00. The bar selections were almost limitless, with their selection of beers and ales rivaling that of most "beer pubs."

Service was extremely attentive, and very friendly. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. This place is a small, intimate locale sandwiched between two of Fort Worth's finest steak houses, and manages to attract not only the family demographic, but also those that frequent such upscale steak places. Well worth the visit, and certainly a keeper on our list of dining in downtown Fort Worth.

I loved this place, friendly staff, good food, a bit pricey for lunch, how bout some lunch specials? The potato crusted Fish and spinach was great, not worth 18.00
