A word from 24 Plates
24 Plates is a Global Tapas Bar & Restaurant serving tapas style dishes from around the globe, as well as Contemporary American Cuisine. Some "not so small" plates are also available. Our indoor/outdoor bar serves guests on our beautiful patio that was once home to the green house that served the Flower Shop that previously occupied our 1925 building. It has now been renovated into an upscale industrial venue featuring 24 Eclectic Menu Items, Specialty Cocktails, a Global Wine Selection, Craft & Domestic Beer, and Live Acoustic Guitar Music.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "24 Plates always has great, interesting menu mix. Lots of fun trying new selections."

  • "Great addition to the Ft Worth dining scene! Inventive menu knowledgable staff with helpful suggestions. Comfortable and friendly surroundings, thoughtfully refurbished space."

  • "Food was great. The "popcorn" was fantastic as was the hummus. The drinks (we tried several off of the drink menu) left a lot to be desired. They were generally flavorless and had no spark or pizzazz."

  • "The food was innovative; not quite a Tapas bar and offered larger plates as an option."

  • "This was our first time to this restaurant, and I can promise, we will never be back! Our server has NO personality! When we asked for recommendations, he recommended the G-Ma's popcorn. When it came out (before our drinks), it was so salty that we couldn't eat it. We mentioned it to our server, and his response was "Yeah, someone else complained about that tonight as well, and I tasted it, and it was too salty". He never offered to take it off of our tab (even though we couldn't eat it anymore, and HE recommended it to us! Our dinner then came out about 3 minutes after our appitzers, and he just crammed all of the food on the table. We were in and out of the restaurant in 40 minutes. Our dinner was just OK! I will NEVER be back!"

  • "We went for a special occasion. Food and service were excellent. Loved everything we had from the menu. There were four of us and we shared small plates. Ordered a couple at a time and enjoyed a nice, relaxing evening."

  • "The food was delicious, and the service was wonderful, but the cocktails really stole the show! All of the food was very thoughtfully prepared and presented, the staff was accommodating to special dietary requirements. Ambience was lovely for an upbeat Sunday brunch - I'm eager to return and sample the dinner menu."

  • "Loved being there. The wait staff stepped up and went beyond. Excellent food! Good location! Ambiance was eclectic and artsy. But, hot. (Temperature was difficult to want to stay for that last drink or dessert). Need to upgrade the air conditioner. Will return but not until true fall or a special cool night."

  • "We tried about 12 different plates both small plates and large plates, all were wonderful. Will definitely make this a regular stop."

  • "We went for my daughter's birthday and sat outside on the patio - great patio with live music and relaxed atmosphere. Hint: if you want to sit on the patio, call the restaurant to make your reservation as it fills up fast. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner - we ordered a few appetizers and then some large plates - it was all very good, especially the tuna steak, "popcorn" and the chocolate cake they brought out for my daughter - they made her feel special on her special day and that meant a lot to me."

  • "Great variety of fresh food in both small and large plates. Fun to share or ....not. Good selection of interesting cocktails and decent wine list. Nice for inside or outside dining. I will definitely return."

  • "We had a delicious meal and enjoyed our evening. We will be repeat diners. Our hope is that the wait staff will improve after time. Our server was completely obtrusive and had very little knowledge of the menu. He admitted he was new, and it was uncomfortably obvious."

  • "Wonderful cross cultural small bites. Not really a tapas restaurant. Loved the complimentary amuse Bouche - a nice little lagniappe- slaw with a raspberry on top - different. The quail with quail eggs were amazing- my favorite thing. Cocktails are inspired and filet divine. Looking forward to fall fare."

  • "I met three friends for dinner. We had salads-two spinach & two jicama. Three liked them. One thought the jicama was okay but not great. Too many hard ribs on the lettuce instead of lettuce leaf only. We had six small plates. Three thought the salmon tasted too strong. One liked it. No one liked the queso & chips-completely flavorless, kale chips were too hot & limp. All liked the roasted broccoli. All liked the humus. Best thing was the bacon wrapped dates. The service was great. The waitress was very attentive, helpful, and friendly. The ambience and the décor were outstanding. Mainly, improve the food! And put a sandwich board style sign on the sidewalk to make it easier to find."

  • "I lived in Washington, DC for 2years and I frequented a tapas restaurant with a friend and I was missing the experience. I just love 24 Plates. It's a great addition to Magnolia Street! I have been three times to this restaurant in about 2 weeks. I love sharing items and trying their different dishes. My first visit on a trip to Ft. Worth was with a friend and I knew I wanted to come back. The next trip, was with a group of 13, 12 of whom had never been to a tapas restaurant. I wanted to expand their horizons. We all had a wonderful dinner and left satisfied! The food was incredible and the desserts exquisitely topped the evening off! The next trip was lunch with my best friend and my daughter. I will be back again!"

  • "A friend and I went for dinner. The selection of different dishes (coincidentally 24) was good. There was a large variety of choices, including a good selection of fish, but nothing for vegetarians but the salads and a couple of appetizers. We had an appetizer (salmon crostini), a salad (jicama), and a large plate (fish tacos). All we awesome and large enough for us to share. I will definitely go back!"

  • "A great dinning experience. The four at the table liked each plate. the timing between plates was just right. Our server was very friendly and very help in selecting plates. We plan to visit again soon."

  • "24 Plates is a tapas style dining experience. We tried several small plates and large plates and shared everything among the table. The plates were delivered at different intervals and that kept the dining experience going. The food and desserts were amazing! They have an extensive wine list, a full service bar and signature drinks. Brunch is served on the weekends and there are times when live entertainment can be experienced on the patio."

  • "had a reservation for 9, table was not ready but figured that was a ploy to get people to order pre dinner cocktails. we obliged and I had a whiskey cocktail with lemon that tasted like tart lemonade. had another cocktail that was very unbalanced as well. stick to beer or wine. bathrooms have no locks which especially nice for the female patrons. we ordered 6-7 different tapas, two came out within a few mins then we had to wait 20 mins for kale, broccoli and pork. the kale was unbelievable salty and inedible. there were few people left who had yet to be served dinner so no clue why it took so long to get food, especially veggies. manager never apologized and waiter was "yes man" agreeing with every question i asked. wouldnt go back"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I felt the menu did not live up to the price point. You should not call it a tapas place if the poritons are not large enough to share. It was very over rated and me and my friends will not be back. The queso was disgusting."

  • "24 plates delivered a wonderful evening!!! Loved the entire experience!!!!"

  • "Great lunch! I had the jicama salad and added grilled chicken - the chicken had a true grilled flavor. The only drawback was that it was a humid day and condensate from exposed duct work was dripping - they moved us to another spot but we still had a few more water drops. I feel sure management will correct this apparent design flaw. Will definitely go back"

  • "Loved the atmosphere and the food was great! Highly recommend for a date or a night out with the girls. Sharing is a must so you can try as much as possible."

  • "Glad to see someone trying a new and different concept. A little rough in spots to start, but very promising. We will return."

  • "Catchy approach with the 24 name and menu. Or small plate selections were great but the special of the night large pate tapas Carne Asada was a tough cut of meet plus a undercooked/rare"
