    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/30/2011
    The food was good, but it was slightly overpriced. The music was ok, but the man playing it talked way too much, interrupting diners during their conversations to make small talk with them. Our waiter was quick and kept our glasses full, which is always a major plus, but he checked on us too often. We were only in the restaurant about 40 minutes, and he checked on us about 15 times. I think it's just because he was new. He was a nice guy, though. The food came out of the kitchen in just a few minutes, and it was fresh, not kept under a heat lamp.

    I definitely would return to try more dishes, the Chicken and Waffles were amazing! The table was split on the smothered pork chops though – one person thought they were great, but the other thought the tastes didn’t quite mesh. Everyone loved the salad, very fresh. Service was well-timed and friendly, good drink selection and wines were affordable.

    Unfortunately we did not have the greatest experience! The food was awesome, service could've been better. We had a large party and every one of them showed up. They ended giving one of our tables away and the Manager refused to accomodate us! Eventually the server asked the people from the other party if they wouldn't mind moving and they were ok with that.

    The food was outstanding. We've been to Button's in Addison and Fort Worth and really enjoyed both restaurants. However, this is not a place that I would recommend for New Year's Eve ever again. The singer was terrible and the overall ambiance was very boring. We were ready to go before midnight, but I talked my husband into staying for the champagne toast and we opted to skip the breakfast buffet. I would recommend this bar for any other occasion.

    Dined on 12/29/2010
    Overall the food was excellent as so was the waitress we had that night. However, the front desk person, Kimberly, who called me and had the worse attitude I've ever encountered with dealing with a place I'm about to give my money to. She was HORRIBLE! I invited 7 friends along so it would have been hard to cancel all together and meet somewhere else. If I could, I would have gone to Mi Cocina across the parking lot but I had 7 other people whom I set up the evening for. I wouldn't go there again simply because I hate to spend my hard earned money at a place were I have to deal with someone's crazy attitude. She got an F from all of us. No professionalism at all.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 12/29/2010
    Button's Food and Music - Fort. Worth is great for celebrating a fun special occasion or just getting together with friends. The food is unique and delicious, and the atmosphere is some sort of cross between being with family and a night on the town. The live music makes it difficult to carry on conversation, but if you catch the restaurant on a night when their floor is open, expect to dance the night away! Their wine list isn't the best, but take advantage of their half-priced wine Wednesdays. A mix between sports-bar and fancy dining, this place is not for a romantic, intimate setting, but Button's is good for most occasions.

    If you are looking for soul food in Fort Worth, this is THE place to go. Brunch buffet items included: gits, collard greens, eggs, potatoes, french toast, pancakes, biscutis & sausage gravy, fried catfish, baked chicken, brisket, beans, etc. I didn't have everything offered but found myself on subsequent trips returning to the greens, grits, brisket, and biscuits & gravy. Overall, an enjoyable meal and the kind of place you find yourself returning to over and over again...!

    The manager who escorted us to our table was unfriendly from the moment we walked in. We asked for a booth and he was like booths are only for 6 parties or more and we could only sit at these 3 tables. So we were like ok so we sat at our table.The same manager brought back a party of two and sat them at a booth. So we asked the waiter he was like they had a reservation we said we did too then he was like the manager picks the tables for guests, At that point we were ready to leave and we took our business else where on Christmas day.We are the customer paying for a service.That manager needs training on cutomer service.

    Our group of approx. 30 family members was handled with grace and patience. 1st we provided an estimate of 15 when we made the reservation. 2nd our reservation was for 11 o'clock, but few of the people were there on time. So the manager suggested that he reschedule it for Noon. This worked well, even though some family members did not arrive until almost 1 o'clock. The food was delicious and everybody got "full as a tick." And last but not least was a very good jazz band that put icing on the cake for us. Buttons is definitely a place to enjoy a fine Sun. brunch. And the price was quite reasonable at about $25 per person which included an 18% tip for a group of our size.
