    My last experience with Buttons- Fort Worth was not memorable, but it was about a year ago. My parents were in town for a visit, and my mother insisted we go to brunch at Buttons. I gave in, and everything was great. I'm not sure if the Cowboys having a game that afternoon played a big role in us walking in and being seated immediately, but what ever it was, the experience was better.

    Buttons has a very good atmosphere for dancing and social gathering. It was my wife birthday and she really enjoyed the evening. The band was excellent! the lead singer was very good and they really got the crowd into each song. The food was ok, but the entrees were cold that we ordered. We mentioned it to our waitress and she gladly took care of it and ask if we would like any other vegetables with the wing dinner. We choose different vegetables and there very steaming hot. We were satisfied at that point. Other than the food, I would come back for the entertainment and the drinks.

    Just like being there Buttons brings New Orleans cuisine to Texas. The food is fantastic the service good and the portions are outta this world. Everything on the menu is a keeper. The Chicken and Wings to the Fish, Shrimp and Grits are spot on Nola classics. Get there as soon as you can.

    The band started late. They didn't check the sound system until it was time for them to start, and they left the stage for a long period until it was resolved. As a result, we only heard 3 songs before we left.

    Nice place... Unfortunately the 87 db sound level (I verified with my phone) during good music took most of the other good away from the evening. Outside near the highway was quieter! We want to come back but there is no way we will be sitting by the stage. The further away the better. Even yelling at each other was difficult. Unfortunate because we liked the place otherwise.

    This was our first visit to Buttons and we were excited after two recommendations and reading reviews. The food was good (waffles were phenomenal), service was great, music was great. We were dat in the very back corner of the restaurant behind the car and weren't able to fully enjoy the music because we couldn't see the stage. Overall good experience.

    This was a wonderful place...until immediately after we handed them our credit card. American Express contacted us that our CC #s were being entered for charges. This has never happened before, took place right after we left Buttons, and charges were hitting local places immediately following. They need to monitor their staff.

    We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation. I reminded the female host a booth was requested as I have medical reason for one. A booth opened up & was being cleaned about 15 minutes after our reservation time. Within seconds a family walked in WITHOUT a reservation & the male host began to seat them there. I attempted to stop him. After they were seated & came to speak to me he stated he thought we had already been seated. We then had to await another booth to become available. The music was good; however, the food was not good enough to make me return after the way we were treated at the beginning. I will say, our waiter was excellent.

    Dined on 7/18/2014
    After we finished eating, my mouth tasted like I had opened the salt shaker and had taken a few drinks of salt. This was the chicken alfredo, but my wife's chicken and waffles were almost as salty. I drank almost a full gallon of water when we got home. Also, the service was great until about 8:00. It took almost an hour to get and pay our bill. We didn't even care if we stayed til 8:30 when the band started. I'm sure some of the people waiting would have loved our table.

    Buttons was recommended to me and I brought my husband this party Friday night and he love it. He's a Contemporary Gospel/ Neo Soul Artist from New Orleans and its very hard to find good spicy /Cajun food here in Texas. Not everyone does it right. Buttons was on Pointe across the board. We will definitely be back!

    Dined on 7/5/2014
    Buttons is vibrant and energetic, but pricey! Mainly I was put off by the mandatory $5 p.p. tacked on the bill for entertainment. I understand they need to pay the entertainment but, when already paying $9 per cocktail AND $20 minimum for an entree...the $5 p.p. add on seemed like overkill. However, apparently people don't seem to mind as the place was packed! I had a reservation for 9 p.m. for 3 people. We arrived right at 9 and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Considering how packed the place was, that wasn't a very long wait at all. The service was good to very good. Very friendly hostess and wait staff. Food...just okay. Shrimp Creole was a bit too spicy. Chicken fried chicken was average. Servings sizes on the small side.

    It was a great start to our 4th of July weekend. The chicken and waffles was fabulous but the greens are to die for. They are the best greens we've ever had from a restaurant. The band was Awesome!!! We really loved all the old school music they sang. The atmosphere of the restaurant was extraordinary. If you want a club feel without the club Buttons is the place to be. This was our 4th time dining at Buttons and each time has been GREAT!!! We love it!!
