Innovative Fare at a Price
The menu was top notch. One could tell that the chef was inspired to create dishes that were unique. I asked for a bit less spice on my spicy shrimp with pasta and got just what I wanted. The okra apetizer was fantastic, unexpected and something that I don't think I would find elsewhere. The potato tots, however, were the same as those offered by Sonic, unsurprising and mundane. The service was excellent, except that a heavily condensing water glass caused a small puddle, on the table, that remained for the entire meal. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone willing to pay a bit more for a great, innovative meal.

This restaurant is a great
This restaurant is a great find. The menu is great - not too many options, but each selection available, in its own right, begs for you to pick it. I ate lunch at Brownstone on a Wednesday - had the Bison burger. It was one of the best burgers I've ever had. My lunch-mate had the pomegranate glazed chicken - both dishes were excellent. I was very impressed by the entire experience. I will definitely go back - and have already recommended it to a plethora of my associates and friends.

We wanted to sit outside because we knew it was going to be a nice evening so it was great to see that I could make reservations for an outside table. Food and drinks are always good. Service was good too. We come here often. Great area!

My husband and I went to Brownstone
My husband and I went to Brownstone for a date night. Being graduate students we wanted an upscale experiencing without cutting off an arm and a leg. This is what we got at The Brownstone! The service was incredible, the food knocked our socks off, and it was in the price range we wanted! What more can you ask for?
What I really loved about it was that it was nice, but not stuffy. You could go with children, with a group of friends, or like us, on a date and not feel out of place. We cannot wait to take a group of friends there for their Happy Hour!

The food was fantastic. It
The food was fantastic. It was comfortably quiet for visiting with nice music in the background. The service was a little slow, but courteous. There is a nice patio and a nice bar, but since we went for brunch on a cooler day, I'm unable to really comment on either. Will definitely return!

Started great, service timing
Started great, service timing was brisk but not rushed. Food was generally good for breakfast however the scrambled eggs and the sausage were exceptional and go onto the must have again list.
For some reason it all fell apart at the end. Something happened back of the house that threw everything off. Our server dissapeared along with most of the staff for an extended period of time, and the overall vibe became stressed. Nothing visible - just a feel. Took us a while to get our check after that, at several other tables seemed to be havin the same problem. The seating flow also seemed to be very confused, with people being seated and moving later.
Will try again - overall very good.

When we arrived at 5 PM, there
When we arrived at 5 PM, there was on one table occupied. We requested a 4-square table by the window, but were told those were reserved for 7:30 reservations. We told them we would be out by 6:30 and asked if we could have one of those tables. We were finally given one. That was the only negative element and it turned out ok.

I really like Brownstone and
I really like Brownstone and its atmosphere and have been about 3 times. We went on Easter Sunday this time and the service was extremely slow (most likely short-staffed in the kitchen due to the holiday)and one of our orders wasn't prepared properly, but management saw there was a problem and comped the meal. Very impressed that they did this without us having to say anything. I would recommend Brownstone because it has above average food and it's classy without being over the top. Great sitting area by the bar too!

Pasta-shrimp-crawfish dish was OK but didn't have a lot of taste. Quite a lot of noise with nothing to absorb the sound.

A West 7th Keeper
One of our favorite places to patronize on West 7th; the food is always consistently excellent, and the service attentive. We do wish they had a few more "full-bodied" Cabernets to pick from, as opposed to so many "medium-bodied", and so many Merlots. Overall though, a very good place where a solid meal can always be found, along with lighter fare, and all of it prepared with detail and attention to quality and freshness.

Brunch was great. I had the chicken fried steak with over medium eggs. Mimosas were good and strong. This is a brunch fit for the Pope.

I had never been to Brownstone and had wanted to eat there since it opened a couple of years ago. I had heard that the menu was quite unique, but was somewhat disappointed that many of the offerings were more main stream.
My Salmon Entree was EXCELLENT!!!

good menu options, including
good menu options, including healthy options and Texas favorities. Pricing moderate with most entrees @ $15. Great selection of appetizers (blue cheese hummus deee-lish). Some outdoor seating on front sidewalk, but fair amount of adjacent car traffic. Good location in up-and-coming neighborhood.

This place has a really good vibe. Food is quality and price is affordable. Gets pretty noisy due to concrete surroundings, but that just adds to the happy feel about Brownstone. I'll be back for sure.

Great location, good food
Wife had burger, I had steak salad. Portions were good, steak was not seasoned. Burger was great, patty well seasoned and cooked, good bun, fries were nothing special. Tempura mushrooms and spicy ranch was very inventive. Drinks were well made. If we return, would be on a cool day at the patio with drinks and appetizers, very nice location and decent food.

Food was good, but place is loud
Went for Sunday Brunch. Food was good to very good. Biggest negative was the place was very loud. Concrete floors and industrial design make for poor acoustics. Add a classic rock sound track that sounds better outside than inside and you just have a cacophony of noise.

Great Brunch, terrific menu
We had a terrific experience at Brown Stone, and likely will return next time we're in Fort Worth. Their brunch lived up to expectations, from what we had heard from others and reading other reviews. But our waiter must have been having an off day, as he forgot to bring out several items we requested, was to check on the status of a menu item and never got back to us, and forgot that I asked for a pen to sign my credit card receipt and left us waiting for nearly 10 minutes until we finally flagged down another waitress. But despite all that flakiness, the food was great, the vibe was fun, and we enjoyed ourselves.

Trendy Spot to Eat
Brownstone didn't disappoint in food or service. Both were very good. The night we went they were hosting a party in the bar area inside for TCU and with the concrete floors it was very loud from the 100 people present. fortunately it was a cooler night and patio seating was available. Enjoyed my food very much and just like this area of Fort Worth.

Overall great experience. Shawn, our server, was extremely friendly and accommodating. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied with everything. The food was great and the service was prompt, courteous, and upbeat.
