Lonesome Dove Western Bistro
Great!!Lonesome Dove is awesome and has a wide variety of really unique dishes. Service was really good.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food with a twistCome here with adventurous taste buds. With the likes of Elk, Quail, Duck, and Rattlesnake on the menu, it is not your everyday faire. But if you let yourself go a little and try it, I am pretty sure you will not be disappointed. The Elk sausage sliders are one of the best things I have ever eaten. We came to Lonsesome Dove for my wife's birthday and the staff was attentive and pleasant. I would certainly recommend it.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your typical Steak HouseFort Worth has many fine steakhouses. Lonesome Dove with its exotic menu, completely stands out from the norm. We tried the Rattlesnake Sausage, the Duck Spring Rolls and Wild Boar Ribs to start. My husband and both loved it all, but the Boar Ribs was favorite of the night. And our steaks were some of the best. We will definitely be returning soon.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMKnocked it out of the ball park.Exceptional service and food. Started with the Jalapeño cucumber margaritas. Had the sampler appetizer with scallops, duck roll and elk sliders. We could not agree on which was the best. Our table had the tenderloin, elk tenderloin and the buffalo ribeye. Each of us thought we had the best plate. One of the tenderloins was overcooked but quickly rectified.
If you wanna play your gonna have to pay. Three of us had a total of 5 margaritas, sampler appetizer and three plates with no dessert came to $350 + tip.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFine lunch spotWhile it can get stock yard jammed on the weekends, I'm finding LD has become a favorite spot for a first class lunch, particularly when entertaining. The yellow squash soup is a must.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Stockyard's starsGreat original flavor assemblies. Scallops, boar ribs and stuffed hushpuppies for appetizers all recommended. Poblano and signature garlic-stuffed filet were precisely prepared. House banana pudding was delicious. Will return on subsequent visits to the Ft. Worth area.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great Western styleThis is a great Western style restaurant in Old Town Fort Worth. It presents a unique and enjoyable dining experience.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMStockyard GemMy husband and I have been planning a trip to Lonesome Dove for a while now. I have to say it was worth the wait! From the moment we walked throught the door till we left, it was an awesome experience. We began at the bar with drinks...both were wonderful. Then we enjoyed 3 amazing courses. We split the Elk Sliders, Hamachi Tostadas, and the Blue Corn Lobster "hushpuppies"...the Elk was AMAZING and my husband (who doesn't eat lobster) loved the "hushpuppies". We also split the butter lettuce salad...the chili buttermilk dressing was to die for. I ordered the Duck and he ordered the Texas Quail...both dishes along with their sides were perfect!! We can't wait to go back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalI am not usually impresses with food. I just like to eat, but Lonesome Dove Bristo had fantastic food with astounding flavor. The service was exceptional. I will definitely eat there again!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunchThe service and food were great. Sliders and hush puppies are a must. Looking forward to returning!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the drive.....It's a trek (at least an hour, maybe 50 minutes if lucky from Dallas to "the Dove" but worth it once you arrive...my second visit....atmosphere is a wonderful casual western feel,spartan old west with heads of game all over the walls so if you are squeamish when it comes to those big Bamby's on the wall then this restaurant is not for you....service was good not great (waiter seemed occupied with another group or table but very polite and professional, the restaurant manager was most helpful when the service fell off a tad)...food is delicious...must do the elk sliders....I had the Texas Quail and I have NEVER had better...perfectly prepared and soooo moist and tender....a wonderful meal!!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe garlic stuffed beef tenderloinThe garlic stuffed beef tenderloin is outstanding here. And if you like a spicy Bloody Mary, theirs are the best! It's great for special occasions and the service is always good.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, but loudThe food and service here was fantastic! Our waiter offered to make a special appetizer plate that allowed the 4 of us to taste everything, and the Kangaroo nachos and Elk Sliders were everything we'd hoped for! Highly recommend ordering the Jalapeno Margarita to accompany them, if you don't mind spicy! The poblano pepper and snapper entrees were exceptional; the duck and quail were good, but perhaps just not my taste. The noise level, however, was such that the couple next to me celebrating an anniversary had to keep saying "What did you say?" to their spouse, and we found the noise level challenging for conversation as well. On Friday night, patrons were dressed in everything from blue jeans to suits; ladies mostly wore dresses.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest experience ever!!!Food was great!

With reservations we were seated immediately, and the staff brought thier A game. The menu offered a wonderful assortment of appetizers, and when we had a hard time deciding, a mixed plate was offered. The main course selections were diverse and we selected the signature garlic stuffed sirloin. With the old saying that everything is bigger in Texas, we were not disappointed. The steak was cut and cooked to perfection, an admirable task considering the thickness of the steak. Overall, our first trip to Texas was highlighted by outstanding food and service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMReally pleased that I wasReally pleased that I was able to try the antelope tacos....what a treat.

The sausage was nice sausage and didn't taste weird as I thought it might. The elk was wonderful. Had the waygu skirt steak which was very flavorful and tender, considering it was skirt, but being waygu more than compensated. All the food was perfectly seasoned, very impressive. Always wanted to eat at Tim Love's after seeing him on tv. The food he made always looked good and sounded good. It did not disappoint. Thanks, Tim!
P.S. I know Tim is not a pastry chef, but someone there made an excellent chocolate cake!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with the feel ofGreat food with the feel of the Old West.

The food was incredible, well made, and full of flavor. The atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for, romantic and intimate. I love how it doesn't seat many people, this keeps it very private feeling. The waiter was so kind and so helpful to us in choosing our menu since it was our first time. Since we do not drink and they wanted to offer us a champagne for our anniversary but we declined, they offered us a free dessert! I have already told four people about this place and they are planning to make reservations to come enjoy! Thank you so much for the experience this place provided for my husband and I on our date night out!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery course was over-the-topEvery course was over-the-top delicous!
