A word from Lanny's Alta Cocina Mexicana
We offer creative Mediterranean-style cuisine with authentic Mexican Ingredients and an international accent — a unique combination that has pleased guests since 2005, and has drawn attention of food and travel writers from around Texas, the U.S., and the world.
Lanny P. Lancarte II, owner and executive chef at Lanny’s Alta Cocina Mexicana, designs natural, from-scratch menus that have something for every taste, new every single day. We think of food as a vibrant work of art, changing with the seasons. Lanny calls on his endless culinary curiosity to prepare inspired innovations for guests.
Among the highlights is our unique ‘tasting menu,’ a multiple course selection that presents some of the restaurant’s most expressive recipes.

Diner Reviews
  • "We are not from Ft. Worth but have eaten here before. We took friends to dinner and everything was just about perfect!!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "My husband and I had never been to Lanny's Alta Cocina, but now we are initaited, we will be returning often. We both had the Tasting Menu, and savored every bite. I asked to substitute one item on the menu, the veal sweetbreads, and they gladly allowed me to have the tamale in mole appetizer instead. I have only had veal sweetbreads one time--at Thomas Keller's French Laundry in Yountsville, CA, and I sent them back. I assumed they are just not for me. But then I tried some of Lanny's on my husband's plate, and they were deleicious. I am a convert. The sea bass was velvety perfect, the carne asada was outstanding. I can only say if you have not eaten here, do so! A hidden gem in Fort Worth."

  • "Lanny is a genius who is not appreciated fully by the Ft Worth dining scene. He is a master chef and his menu shows this genius. There is great thought put into the menu and the execution is perfection."

  • "Dinner for Valentine's Day was wonderful, as all of our visits to Lanny's have been. We each chose a different 3-course dinner and, of course, sampled each other's food; everything was scrumptious! The bonus of the chocolates at the end of dinner just added to the wonderful experience we had that night. The wine pairing worked well with all of the courses, except I would have preferred to have a less-bold selection for the sea bass (the red wine that was chosen for that course went very well with the steak, but was a little heavy for the fish)."

  • "This was the best place ever! I am a huge foodie and I am close to saying this is the best meal I have ever had!!!"

  • "Small, quiet and quaint. A very nice place for a special occasion. Portions were fairly small for the price but the food and the presentation were phenomenal. Wait staff was very attentive and the chef delivered the food."

  • "Good food attractively presented. Outstanding wait staff--attentive but unobtrusive. A bit expensive for every day dining but a really special place to go. One of my favorites when I want to spoil someone a little."

  • "Words can hardly describe this dining experience. The flavors of the foods prepared were exquisite. The balance was perfect. You will have to go back several times to get a taste of all the fish and meats and all the....... Please just go!"

  • "4 star experience 2 quibbles music too loud. steak knives dull need to be heated to cut butter"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The botanas (appetizers) were excellent, especially the duck tamale. The carne asada was fair, but the highlight of the night were excellent deserts (including a wonderful guacamole ice cream). After having recently moved back to the US from Europe, this restaurant possess an offbeat kind of Euopean "feel" that might not be evident to Fort Worth regulars. The ambiance may be closer to Spain than Mexico actually. It kind of reminded us of a restaurant just at the step of El Convento de San Esteban de Salamanca (without the spectacular view of course). Overall a good experience."

  • "The food is unique and fantastic! One if my favorite restaurants!!"

  • "I always enjoy dining at Lanny's. The food is sophisticated, fresh, well-prepared, and beautifully presented. Don't expect Tex-Mex, because that's not what they do (thankfully!)."

  • "Incredible food - does a great job of being inventive and clever and melding some combinations of ingredients you wouldn't necessarily would have thought would work AND sourcing high-quality food without being fussy. The staff and the chef were incredibly warm and generous and thoughtful. Taking the menus after we ordered our appetizers so we wouldn't have to deal with them was a nice touch and a nice subtle reminder to take our time with the dining experience. Make sure you get the chocolate cake with mango-avocado ice cream - I could have eaten five more! The whole experience was great and made the night feel like an occasion."

  • "6 course tasting menu with wine pairing was excellent. aside from some confusion on part of server about wine sequence service was great. foie gras course was superb! great new fall menu just introduced. always a great experience!"
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "The food is always wonderful, the service gracious and helpful, but our last visit to Lanny's was unbearable because of the extreme noise. Two very large parties mixed into the regular dining room made the dining experience miserable for anyone else in the room. We left before finishing our dessert and coffee because the piercing laughter and screaming conversation from one end of a very long table to another made conversation at our table totally impossible. It was a completely miserable experience. It will be a long time before we go back on a Saturday night for sure!"

  • "My husband and I recently dined at Lanny's. We both had the lemon sole which was delightful. All of the dinner courses were delicious as were the cocktails. This is a wonderful restaurant."

  • "It had been a while since our last visit to Lanny's and when we saw it listed as a restaurant choice to support a favored local charity we knew that it was time to make a reservation. Besides the regular ala carte menu Lanny was offering a prie fixe dinner with some of those proceeds going to support the charity so we chose that option. We started with a delicious cream of pasilla chilies soup containing chunks of quail and avocado then moved on to choices of pork chop and lemon sole for the main course. We also chose each of the two dessert options. Everything was delicious with reasonable portion sizes and excellent timing of the service. We also chose the optional wine pairings with each course and Lanny always does a great job."

  • "The food, service and ambience is the most upscale in Fort Worth. There really is no comparison."
