    The lady and I were away for a small staycation and had brunch here on the recommendation of several friends that live in Ft Worth. I love the floor to ceiling windows, it really keeps the place open. First off, then menu is nothing to laugh about. I can usually pick out a few items and them narrow them down after a few minutes to decide what I want. I must have looked at that menu for twenty minutes studying like I was cramming for a final. We ended up getting A LOT more food than we should have, but only for the reason that we wanted to take some home. I would go in to detail about what we ate and how much you should get it, but the menu changes so frequently by the time you read this review it will have probably changed. I'm pretty sure the mac & cheese and bacon stay there though. Woof, that was good. All in all this place was amazing. It's been just a few days and I already want to go back. I've already recommended it to several of my friends. This restaurant is a reason to drive from Dallas to Ft Worth. I'm sold

    This was my third time dining here and unfortunately my last. Although my last brunch was perfect and I wrote a rave review, it is not performing consistently for the money spent. Although it was my first dinner experience (my first two times was for brunch), I ordered the flat iron steak that I had previously loved for brunch. However, this time the meat was served rare, when I ordered it medium. And, considering the meat is served sliced, there was no reason for this rookie mistake.

My family has a hard time deciding what to order because we have so many favorites. This is my favorite restaurant in Fort Worth. The area is great, the food is wonderful, decorations are simple.... Local GEM!

    This is a good example of social media doing its thing. Was trying to find a fun spot while visiting my daughter in college. This place delivered for both adults and kids. Everything was great, but the scotch eggs appy was biggest oooh and aaaahs from all sides. Service was fantastic, ambiance, etc. Very cool and we've already recommended to several people. Enjoy

    This was my second time visiting this restaurant. After my first experience, I wrote a tough review but I promised I would give them another try. I'm glad that I did, the meal was very good. I ordered the daily special: flank steak with sunny side egg. The steak was perfectly cooked and tender. The egg was also a perfectly cooked sunny side up. I especially liked the house ketchup for the fries. It had a little kick. I would not recommend sitting adjacent to the kitchen. It became a little difficult to have a conversation while listening to the very active kitchen. I will definitely return for another meal.

    Great place for dinner with the family - really enjoyed the atmosphere, the knowledgeable waitstaff, and the food. Strong menu expertly described by our waitress who clearly had the knowledge and personality for the job. Lots of groups in the restaurant could have made it very noisy, but the atmosphere stayed right at the energetic but enjoyable level.

    I was recommended to take my girlfriend to AF+B and I'm glad we went. The restaurant was very nice host and server were polite as they sho be. Server informed us of a few beverages and food items that were not on the menu. Appetizers, we got the chorizo Scottish eggs and they were delicious. We also got the Beef tartare which was not bad. For meals, I got the Lamb Shank and I loved it. My gf got steak but I forgot what it was called but it was pretty good. Overall place is a must try and I will gladly go back again soon.

    I would love to try everything on their menu. We started with the shrimp boudin balls. And they were amaze-balls. My wife had a steak salad and I had the fired chicken. Both were delicious. We cant wait to take friends and family. Convenient free valet stop right in front of the restaurant is also very awesome. The service by "Sur" was the absolute best part. Since moving to the DFW a year ago, we have been trying many places to find our "FAV", the service we received here was top notch and a very big part of the reason we loved the experience. If not the best service in the area, I would say at the top. Its nice to have great service go along with a great meal.

    AF +B was recommended to me by a friend as we were in FW from out of town. Grilled salmon was excellent, however we were disappointed with our service. I think we saw our actual server 3 times. A different person brought our water, a different person our drinks, another person our food, another person our check, a different person returned our check. I didn't know who I was supposed to be tipping :(

    Took a very nice person out for dinner and this was definitely the right place to be at. The online reservation was quick and flawless and ensured we didn't have to wait for a table (overheard it was a 20-25 min wait), so that was a nice touch. Hannah, our server, was awesome. Talk about being able to sell popsicles to Eskimos. Very polite, energetic, friendly, and actually looked like she really enjoyed working there. That definitely help make the night go well. The cocktails were great, the Scotch eggs were divine, and the entrees were delicious. However, despite being somewhat underwhelmed by the portion size of the sirloin for the price (3 slices?), the taste definitely helped to make up for it. One of the best I've had in a while.

    Was in town for a wedding on the day of my birthday and wanted a hearty, fun, and special restaurant to enjoy a meal with my boyfriend. The restaurant is both spacious and full of character with an aesthetic we loved. They were even playing The Doors! It was a really extensive and fun brunch menu, with great breakfast cocktails, and updates on american classics. The bacon was unreal, as was the home made hot sauce I got to go with my scrambled eggs. Our server was so attentive, sweet, and unobtrusive with her service.

    For the record, we are fans of AF+B and work it into our dining schedule every couple of months. We have yet to be disappointed and our last trip was no exception. While everyone who has served us in the past has been excellent, we were lucky enough to have Brian serve us again on this trip. He is personable, professional and attentive. The food has always been great and this trip was no exception. We started with the Scotch Eggs, which are fantastic, and shared the short rib entrée with a side of brussel sprouts. I normally hate brussel sprouts. I only eat them to keep peace in the family, but I would order these again. Very tasty! Dessert was the chocolate pecan pie, which is always great.

    We are part of an ABC dining club...our first restaurant that starts with "A' we selected AF+B. We were very happy with our choice! The manager was very accomodating when we entered the restaurant. We started with a beverage at the bar which was fantastic. When we arrived at our table, the waiter was very informative and engaging. She also was nice enough to inquire if anyone at the table had a food allergy. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Would HIGHLY recommend it - will be going back again and again.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 12th year anniversary and wanted to try something different. She heard about AF+B from a friend as so we thought to give it a try. We first order the Fried Gulf Shrimp Boudin Balls. They were very good. I would definitely recommend this starter. She had the Smoked Beef Shortrib and I had the Fried Pasture Chicken. Both dishes were very good. The atmosphere was great. Not too loud. Our server was amazing and very knowledgeable with the dishes and wine selections.

    AF&B was a great find overall. They have a good mix of drinks on the menu and the bartenders were quick to get drinks made. Skip the Moscow mule if you don't like incredibly strong ginger (I generally love ginger). The bar area was bustling but the noise level was great for conversation at our table. The space also accommodated several large parties at one time. We ordered a range of food in our group, from the pork chop to a fish sandwich. Everything was exceptional and they were not hesitant to make an off the menu vegan dish at request. I will definitely be back, especially as their menu changes based on what's in season. The one area that needs improvement is the valet parking; we had to wait 25+ mins for our car.

    Great eatery. I highly recommend the fries with house-made ketchup. Delicious! I want to start making my own ketchup. Drinks are first rate. Mint julep was perfectly made & strong. Try the TCU special (bourbon, muddled blackberries, mint, lemonade). I chose the special, a filet mignon with a balsamic glaze. While tasty, it was clearly outside the chefs comfort zone. This is not a steak house. If all else fails, get the fried chicken platter.

    AF&B is our favorite place to have a "Date Night". The food has never disappointed us in all of our visits. The staff is fantastic. You cannot go wrong if you're seated in Genevieves section. She is attentive, knowledgeable, and will make you feel as if you are the only table she has. The bar staff is great and the drinks are marvelous. A good beer menu and "specials" make it a perfect spot to sit and relax if you're not eating a full dinner.
