    Only complaint: very noisy - sound bounced off the walls. Had to almost shout to hear each other. Possibly because we were in center of room. Possibly because we are older diners.

    Ellerbe's fine foods was a place I had wanted to visit since driving by and seeing the inviting curtains that hung around the patio. They offered a time to sit, reminisce, and enjoy a delightful meal. All of their invitings were fulfilled. My wife and I enjoyed our time and our meal. We won't frquent often solely due to the price.

    I was interested to see how they brought the various local suppliers into their menu. Ordered an appetizer of their frog legs which were very good but had a oily cole slaw with pickled cucumbers and other veggies with it that somewhat ruined the crispiness of the frog legs. also order their "Porterhouse" steak which was more like a small, tough piece of poor quality beef that was covered with so many sauces that it lost itself in the flavor department. Another party ordered fish dish which was good but salty. Bread was forgettable as was the final dessert which was described as an elegant chocolate dish but it was more of a very small tasteless chocolate concoctment with a very minor bit of chocolate syrup.

    Unfortunately we were told that everything was very good at this restaurant. That was not our experience. I ordered the pork porterhouse and it was about the worst dish I've ever had. It still gives me nightmares! Poorly cooked with a rather unpleasant paprika sauce. Fatty and really awful. My husband ordered the rack of lamb medium, but most of it was rare and flavorless. We should have returned both dishes, but didn't. Husband also had the homemade chocolate ice cream which was sort of a pudding consistency and not good. The bright notes: excellent sweet potato soup and delicious bread pudding. Menu online can't be trusted. It showed halibut, which is what I really wanted, but it was not on the menu at the restaurant. Too bad.

    Ellerbe's is the place to go for truly "fresh daily" entrees that are prepared to perfection. The menu varies, but the quality and selection never disappoints with fish, pork, beef, and chicken options. The wine and specialty beer selection is adequate for most. Don't plan on cocktails, but do expect excellent service and the ability to visit and enjoy your dining experience without the drone and background noise found in most restaurants today. Again, our most recent visit was par excellence!

    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.

    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.

    Difficult to find great food, great wine, and great service in the same place. Usually one of those suffers. Not at Ellerbe's. Molly's kitchen produces best food in Fort Worth using local products! Richard works the wine list with Molly's help and has some of the best selections in Fort Worth. Wait staff has some really experienced waiters who know how not to intrude but how to stay alert. Always surprised with the joy of each dinner at Ellerbe's!

    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.
