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 is a true gem in Fort Worth. Good food, great service. We were seated in the rooftop dome on this trip. It was a bit noisy for my taste but not is a terribly bad way. Just the acoustic nature of the space. We will be back.

    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!

    I visit Fort Worth and Reata's regularly and have always had a great experience. Great steaks, fish, chili rellanos, jalepeno corn bread and other dishes with a southwest influence. Their jalapeño - infused margarita is a treat and very unique. The inside and roof-top bars are fun, with a variety of craft cocktails. Service is friendly and attentive.

    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!

    Cocktails in bar area were outstanding! Reservation for early dining and seated very quickly which we love! Never have been disappointed with the Reata chicken fried steak entree. Outstanding and one had better be hungry as great value for the price. We love the atmosphere around Sundance Square and only regret was that top floor reserved for a frat party but that was ok! We love the Reata!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/5/2014
    We enjoyed a fun night here with the tasty food being this highlight. Our party of three all ordered steaks and they were well seasoned, tender and piping hot. Only drawback was one steak was overlooked and had to be sent back. So I ate after my dinner companions were well into their meal. Sides were just okay - mashed potatoes and asparagus. We all really liked the sautéed mushrooms though. Habanero margarita got high marks from my dinner companion but watermelon margarita was bland and watery. Our waitress was friendly and helpful but didn't seem as polished or attentive as I would expect for a high end restaurant. Overall a good meal if a bit pricy.

    My fiancé and I went for our early one year anniversary. We absolutely loved it. Ashley D was our waitress and she was wonderful and patient with us. My fiancé has a shellfish allergy and we ordered an appetizer that originally would have shrimp on it. She took the whole appetizer and gave us a new plate. She also was went out of her way to see what movies were out even though we didn't ask her too. She was definitely the best waitress I've seen. The food was great. My fiancé's steak was well done just like she wanted. They added special words to our dessert plates.. Deliciousness. We will definitely be coming back on another special occasion!

    We had heard so much about this place and had to try it. I had a filet which was cooked medium rare as requested, but the cut was grainy and not at all flavorful. My date's fish dish was average. The highlight of dinner was for sure the mashed potatoes which were superb.

    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.

    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.
