A word from Reata
Sophistication without pretension-that's the beauty of Reata. From the moment you pass through our doors, the unmistakable ambience of Reata envelops you. Hosts and servers welcome you as if you were an old friend, inviting you to savor every moment-and every bite of your meal. And all around you, tempting aromas swirl, while wrought iron accents, rustic paintings, and cowboy accouterments gently remind you that there's a taste of the West in every gourmet creation we serve.

    By booking with OpenTable a surprise dinner for my wife on our anniversary, the night was spectacular. Our waiter, Landon, gave us an anniversary card with a private note from him and signed by the rest of the staff as well as providing first class service for our dinner. Then the chef (or some talented person in the kitchen) wrote "Happy Anniversary" on our desert plate. All-in-all, an amazing night. I will highly recommend booking through OpenTable and using the special instructions box to alert Reata as to the occasion. I am sure this will work with all the restaurants OpenTable serves, but our was with Reata. My night came out awesome.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Reatta. I had the fish tacos and they were great. My husband had the bison burger which was ok. My daughter selected the desert taco and we shared the peach cobbler. Our server was very helpful. The portions were huge so we took food home.

    Wait staff was friendly and very courteous. They were attentive to every need, but not fawning. I was particularly impressed that all of the staff seemed to enjoy their work and were glad to have us there. Food was top tier for each of the three entrees we ordered.

    The place is nice, but very touristy. The whole experience was disappointing. On a Friday night it certainly wasn't over packed but we were in an out within an hour even with a three course meal. We like to take our time and enjoy the food and atmosphere but our food arrived very quickly and plates were whisked away as soon as any server thought you might be finished. You can hear everything that other tables are talking about. There is no privacy or intimate dining in this place.

    We are RVing our way around the U.S. full-time. While at the Bluebonnet RV Park in Terrell we decided to do a day trip to the historic Stockyards in Ft. Worth to see the cattle drive. Before going on our day trip we had to visit the ER in Kaufman and met a friendly nurse who was from Ft. Worth so she recommended we go to Reata in Sundance Square as her sister worked there. Our server, Sharon was delightful and went out of her way to find our nurse's sister, Taylor. Our dinner...buffalo steak and tenderloin were cooked perfectly and delicious. Our bread pudding was to die for and the plate was decorated in chocolate that said "Happy Travels...Thanks...Reata" Mike and Sharon Sarasota, Florida

    Reata is typically our favorite for special occasions. This time around, we went for my birthday and weren't as impressed as the last few times. My Citrus-Crusted chicken was absolutely wonderful. However, my wife had the Carne Asada and did not like it at all. We mentioned this to the server and he just blew it off. My daughter had the 6-ounce steak and lobster. The lobster was good, but the steak was bland. Desserts were great, as usual, but the 2 of the 3 entrees were not what we expected. We will likely still return and probably stick to the chicken and fish entrees, as we usually do.

    Of all the available restaurants we reviewed the menu for restaurant week #1, this one had the menu we were most interested in. Rian was our waiter and he was very professional. He smiled frequently, and went the extra mile. He did not cease to answer any question we had pertaining to the menu. He accommodated us in every way. The jalepeno red fish was perfect, along with the sides. My wife had the pork shank which was tender and well seasoned. Her only complaint was that the black-eyed pea hash was not seasoned well. For dessert, we both had the Dutch Oven Apple Crisp with Cajeta. The apples were very tender (just the way I like them), and the cinnamon ice cream accented the dessert well. I will definitely return here.

    We go to Reata every year for KRLD Restaurant Week. They have never made us feel that we are not important because we are getting such a great deal for $35! They treat us like we are paying $100 per plate! That's why we go to Reata even when it is not KRLD Restaurant Week! The food, the atmosphere, the service, and the prices! Not only for special occasions, but just for the heck of it! If you have never been to Reata you don't know what you are missing!

    The Reatta provided the best dining experiance my wife and I have had since coming to Fort Worth 3 years ago. The only thing I can say was not exceptional was the glob of cheese they considered cheese enchiladas on the carne asada plate. The carne asada itself was the best you could have. Everything else was great.

    My wife and I eat here on our wedding anniversary. She enjoys the pepper crusted tenderloin and I normally get the buffalo ribeye. Our last visit I tried the pork shank. The presentation of the dish was amazing with the bone protruding in the air, and it tasted great. We always try a different dessert, and this time around we had the tamales and boy was it delicious.

    This restaurant not only has steaks but the seafood was wonderful also. Service was the best of any restaurant we have been to. Excellent wine cellar also. Loved the smell of leather when you walk in, leather saddles and chaps on display and menu is also covered in leather. And do check out the roof top bar area, great view and fun atmosphere at night. Great selection of salads, soups and of course steaks, the main attraction. Would recommend for large groups, which there were a lot of, or for a couple. The staff could not have been more friendly or more helpful. Save room for the desert which they bring by on a try so you can see exactly what your getting. Martini and Manhatten drinks were also excellent. We will definitely be back.

Our waitress (Morgan) was friendly, knowledgeable, and made excellent recommendations. The ambiance was classy yet unpretentious. And the food was spot-on! So delicious!

    I live in Dallas, so to come to Fort Worth to eat, it must be special. The Reata has been a special place for my friends and I to celebrate. This time it was a birthday. The main eating area was very noisy, so we asked to be seated in a quieter area. The Host immediately said it would not be a problem and took us to another area where it was much more suitable for conversation and good food. The drinks were incredible. The ambiance was very nice. We enjoyed our appetizers as well as our main entrees. The only complaint we had the whole night was that the tamales were a bit cold. The quail was superb and so tasty. Seafood plates ordered were all delicious. Overall, a great place to come for special occasions when we are in Fort Worth.
