    Ashley, our server, was a gem. She was beyond helpful and accommodating. We took friends to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and we had many requests for our special needs. We follow a whole foods, plant based diet with no additional oil added, and we've been doing that for over four years. They had trouble...as do almost all chefs...understanding that we wanted no additional oil in our food. We cook glorious meals at home, and none of them start with, " sauté in olive oil." But retraining chefs is a huge undertaking. Check out Del Sroufe, the chef who wrote Better than Vegan. The produce was exceptionally fresh and delicious; too much oil in everything. The breads were not whole grain. My husband never compromises and leaves there hungry

    I selected Ellerbe's for a quiet, elegant birthday dinner. It was a wonderful experience. With my reservation I mentioned the occasion was a birthday and they suggested a Birthday cake for the desert. It was a great idea and a welcome surprise. It was delivered with style. We enjoyed our evening.

    Food and service were outstanding. The temperature had been near 100 for days, so the restaurant was not prepared for the lower temperature brought on by a rain storm. Even though we were allowed to change tables, I never was really comfortable. However, excellent hot food and wine kept my mind off my chill. Will definitely return.

    we went for my birthday with a large group and had a fabulous time! The food was very good- especially the rabbit papardelle. The cheese board was a little lacking and only really enough for two people, but everything else was wonderful. excellent service, very great wine selection. I recommend again and again.

    Every meal I have enjoyed at Ellerbes is exquisite. The menu is flavorful and ambitious and offers something for everyone. Fresh is the name of the game here and that makes all the difference. There is no restaurant in Fort Worth or Dallas that compares.

    A little bit away from the downtown steakhouses is a fabulous restaurant with unique, delicious food, great service, and a neighborhood feel. My wife and I went to Ellerbe the other night after checking out the Kimball museum. It is located in a small building which looks like it used to be a house or gas station. Once inside, there is no mistaking this for anything other than a fine restaurant - nicely spaced tables, lots of attentive staff, and the energy of people enjoying themselves. The waitress explained that the food is mostly local and because of that, the menu changes often based on availability. I ordered the pork jowl (a bit of a culinary stretch for me) which was served with cheese hominy and other goodies - great!

    I'd heard great things about this restaurant. The valet and ladies at the greeting counter were excellent. The concept of farm to table held true-to-form and was reflected in the quality of the meal ingredients. Unfortunately, as a traveler who eats frequently, the entrees didn't seem to have the right balance in their meals. As I shared, I heard great things and would like to give them another chance but do not plan to use the same server staff.

    Every time I've been to Ellerbe's the food has been amazing (5 times). The frequent changes to the menu prove that they are intent on only serving the best, freshest foods. The location is small, but elegant, and the service is always good. Expect to spend a good deal of your hard-earned money, but for special occasions or romantic outings it's well worth it. Highly recommended.

    Ellerbe is high on the list of exceptional dining in Fort Worth. The atmosphere is vibrant and the ever-changing (or should I say "evolving"?) menu achieved opulent variety without overwhelming us. The wait staff didn't hesitate to explain any finer ingredients foreign to our pallets. They also made impeccable recommendations from the wine list. The whole experience was very enjoyable and rejuvinating. When we received our food, it was perfectly cooked. We're looking forward to the next visit.

    Ellerbee's is a great place to meet a friend(s) for lunch. The food and service have always been good and you know that you'll be able to have a nice conversation without interference while you are dining. An added "plus" is its convenience when driving from the mid-cities.

    Ellerbe's has been a favorite for years, but Saturday night was not good. The appetizer was "Warm Brie and Peaches"...I got a TINY piece of toast with a small taste of brie and NO peaches. Really?? They did bring it on a plate when I asked where the peaches were, but come on...$11 and you can't put one of the two ingredients from the name? My halibut was delicious! The dessert (bread pudding) was also delicious. My husband had the steak....it was THE TOUGHEST piece of meat I have ever had in a restaurant! The flavor was okay, but not that great. We told the waitress about the meat, but she just apologized. My husband had never been there and will never go back.

    It was our first time here! The name caught my eye when I was glancing through google as my name was Ellen. I looked through the menu and saw that they had Pork Belly. Immediately I said to my husband, let's try it. We asked for a 4 top and got it. We were served by Michael, wh gave us fantastic service and had answers to all of our questions. We will ask to have him again. Well said and done, we will dine there again, and I am sure we will have the same experience.

    We happened upon Ellerbee's one month after opening and considered it the best mistake that has ever happened for us dining wise! Since then they have become our favorite restaurant in the metroplex and while we don't go as often as we would like, we have never been disappointed with any dish, morsel or bite! This place takes farm to fork to a whole new level and their staff is informative and excellent at figuring out what each person should order based on their likes and dislikes. Bree, our server during this visit, was probably one of the most adept servers we've encountered at wine pairing. The Fort Worth dining scene is fortunate to have this gem and Chef Molly deserves all her accolades.
