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.

  • Reata Was Outstanding

    We booked Reata for a special birthday for my wife. The restaurant went out of its way to make it a great evening. The food was outstanding. We had their nightly special of steak and seafood which was prepared to perfection. Our server, Sharon, was extremely attentive but not overbearing. Because it was my wife's birthday, we were comped glasses of champagne which was a nice touch. Overall, our restaurant experience was outstanding and we would unequivocally recommend Reata.

    Our experience was disappointing. Our server seemed to be a little over worked and inattentive . Wine was not delivered until after we had completed our appetizer and our salads. We probably should have complained and/or commented more, but that is not our style. The main courses we had (Carne Asada and Bone in Rib Eye) were excellent. The tenderloin tamales we ordered for appetizers were not great.

    This is our third time at Reata, and we seem to love it more and more each time. The menu is just filled with fabulous food. This time around we had the stuffed japalenos, the soup of the day (an unbelievably fabulous beef and mushroom in a dark, golden cream broth), the bourbon corn, asparagus wrapped in bacon, the red fish with jalapeno and cilantro crust. We also love their cocktails, though the offerings are quite as extensive as we'd like. Our waiter was great, and then when dinner was finished we took our cocktails to the 4th floor rooftop balcony and relaxed up there for a while. No complaints - and we'd recommend this place completely. Our dinner for 2 people with multiple courses and drinks was 120.00.

    My husband and I had our anniversary last weekend, and we celebrated with a romantic dinner at the Reata- it was also the first place we dined together as husband and wife. It was just as wonderful as it was the first time! I had requested a quiet table away from the door- we were seated in the table the furthest away from the door. We got the same excellent, personable service, while still being afforded privacy. We had the Tenderloin Tamales with Pecan Mash (delicious), Blackened Buffalo Ribeye, Bacon Wrapped Lamb (didn't care for this), and finally, the Chocolate Bread Pudding Tamale for dessert (you must try this one, it's delightful!) Our dessert had a special message written in chocolate- it was altogether a wonderful experience.

    Vibrant restaurant with the perfect balance of excellent food and the unique spirit of Fort Worth. This is always my restaurant of choice for out of town guests and where I choose to go with local friends for a rooftop drink and a dependably fun dining experience. Service is excellent and personable, especially Destiny. They are willing to let you dine and enjoy at your own pace, no matter how busy the evening is. Glad they are apart of Open Table.

    I love Reata's and have eaten there many times. The last two visits brought a little disappointment though. Two times ago the blue cheese chicken meal came with no mashed potatoes. This last time they were there but runny. And the tomatoe pieces this lsst time were cold and firm. They are usually warmed by the chicken and potatoes and softened but not this time. I live your reststaurant and always look forward to eating there.

    Taylor was our server and was spot on in her service. She knew when to crack a joke and when silent service was required, something that most server can't quite grasp. The features were delivered in a detailed but short (as possible, there were about five) presentation and was the reason I choose the pulled pork tacos. Kudos to Chef Rodriguez and his crew for putting out quality food time and time again. I not only recommend The Reata to anyone who visits Fort Worth, but try and take as many clients there as possible as I know the staff will always perform to the highest of standards.

    Everything was very good, we where there on a Monday night so not very busy. Food service and all was very good, personnel was very nice. It was my wife's birthday and she really enjoyed it. The staff gave her a birthday card, but no free little desert, no big deal since we don't eat many sweets anyway, but most places do provide a little cake and candle for the birthday person.

    We could not have had a better evening at Reata. Our server Joey was FANTASTIC! When asking for recommendations for food he was so good at describing what the foods were and what he would choose. He was so good at being a part of our conversation. If you go to Reata, request him, you won't be disappointed. The fajita tamales were outstanding. We split them as an appetizer and it was more than we cold eat.They could be eaten as an entree for one.Two of the people in our party had the Buffalo RibEye and said it couldn't have been any better. The Chicken Chile Rellanos were good but would have been better off ordering a steak. Next time we are in Fort Worth, we know exactly where dinner will be!

    This was the third time that my wife and I have been to the Reata, and have been very pleased every time. They have some creative dishes, very nice servers and hostesses, and unique ambiance. They all wished us a happy anniversary, and even brought us a little dessert with "Happy 12th anniversary" written in chocolate around the plate! I booked our reservations through OpenTable, and I was very pleased with that as well. It allowed me to add some notes to our reservation. Mine included our anniversary and that we might be late because we had to drop our kids at the babysitter, and both were acknowledged as soon as we walked in!

    With its unique wall decorations and antique saddle displays, Reata is all Texas. So is the menu, with Texan twists on almost everything. I particularly like the tamales, in thus case one as an appetizer and another as dessert. The service is nothing short of exceptional. Expensive and worth it.

We went for lunch on a Sunday and even though the restaurant was busy, it was not crowded and we were seated quickly.

    A first time visitor to both Fort Worth and Reata. Both were a wonderful experience. We dined on the top floor under "the dome" which was a nice climate-controlled way to enjoy a view of the city. The waiter was polite, attentive, and knowledgeable. Food was excellent. I had the citrus-crusted chicken and my wife had the duck/lamb dish. Both were tender and the perfect temperature. We finished off the evening with their signature bread pudding wrapped in a corn husk! Overall, a wonderful dining experience....we will definitely be back when we move to Fort Worth next summer!

    We went here for a special occasion as were were visiting our son at TCU. I read all the great reviews, but wasn't overly impressed with the food. They did have some very interesting menu items which we tried, like the Elk sausage it was fantastic. Service by our waiter was also excellent he was very knowledgeable about the menu and suggesting items to try. I was looking for more tex mex but Reata didn't come through.

    I probably have already reviewed this great restaurant, but can't help but submit another review! We dined here early on a Friday night - we were entertaining friends from out-of-state. The waiters/waitresses are the best we've ever encountered - friendly knowledgeable - even down to the alcohol content of the local brews on tap! The food is great - unique dishes with a Texas flair! We dined in the dining room but their rooftop dining option is also amazing. When visiting downtown Fort Worth be sure to make this a place dine!
