    This was my first visit to Buttons in Ft. Worth. The food was really good. The band was awesome. I didn't like the set up of the restaurant. I felt like I was sitting on top of the person next to me. This location needs to be bigger. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and would recommend this place.

    I did not like the fact that we drove an hour to get there and still had to wait to be seated after I made a reservation. This was my second time my first experience was much better as so was the food. I just hate that this was my three guest first time and their experience was not as great at mine the first time.

    We enjoyed the brunch as well as music. I wish there were more these types of local venues where good food is combined with good music. The only suggestion I would have is that it would be great if more fresh foods were included in the brunch - salads, fruits etc. Everything offered was very tasty with nice "twists". We loved the grits for example!

    I used Open Table to make a reservation for 3 at 9pm. We arrived at 8:50, by the time we reached the hostesses; it was 9pm. We were told our table wasn't ready and would receive a text from the restaurant when it was. That was perfectly fine since the live band was so entertaining. I almost didn't notice the text on my phone 11 mins later stating, our table was ready. We ordered calamari and shrimpz appetizers. I had the surf and turf (which i do every time go) as usual, the filet was cooked perfectly (medium), the others had the chicken and waffles, you get a choice of white, dark or mixed), the other had the pot roast. The food was superb. Great place to unwind.

    We had a great time at Buttons. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere was fun. Background music was well selected for this venue and added so much to the experience. Our server treated us like friends and service was prompt and consistent. The food was tasty and well seasoned and the portions were generous. We always visit Ft. Worth (driving from Arlington, the land of chain restaurants) to dine and look forward to our next visit to Buttons, well worth the drive.

    This was my first trip to Buttons and it was quite enjoyable. We had a booth seat but it was where the patrons wait to be called so seeing the band was impossible. You could hear the band and that was more important to me.The food was very good and it was served in a timely manner. Overall I would definitely go there again.

    The food was visually attractive. Special note to the waffles and chicken....extreme presentation. Food was well seasoned and not overcooked. You are given ample order of your selection. I came during Sunday Brunch. The food was varied and abundant on the brunch table.I like the way the breakfast foods were presented first and then the lunch section. As you turned at the end of the table, the fruits and desserts were at the to level. I liked the fruits especially the melons however I would have like the portions cut in larger pieces. The menu not only included the breakfast and lunch selection but also the omelet station. I enjoyed the service (our waitress went out of her way to make our evening enjoyable. Thank you.

    The food was excellent!! Had the meatloaf and was very impressed. We had a table near the stage, which was a little too close and loud. Service was acceptable, however the waiter seemed annoyed for whatever reason which then bled over into his service to us. Overall a great restaurant - we will return.

    The service was very good. I had reservations and was seated right away. The server was very prompt and attentive.ValentinesI ordered the chicken and waffles (dark). It was very tasty but I think it was very over priced. I had two legs an a thigh, one waffle and some collard greens for $19.00. The music was good and someone was standing at the door telling everyone that there was an up charge of $5.00 per person for the band, which I thought was very distasteful. That information should be stated on the website as well as being posted on a sign in the restaurant.

    I have been to Buttons a few times now and the food is fantastic. Soul and Cajun styled food with a twist. It is nicely casual but still elegant enough for a date or party. The music is great but I often come too early to catch the entertainment. I think Buttons is a gem in the city of Fort Worth. Close to everything with plenty of things in the area to do AFTER you eat.

    The waiter was to busy talking with the table next to us. He finally walked over and took a drink order. It took him two more trips by to get our appetizer order even though it took the table next to us to tell him. No appetizer was ever delivered. Then halfway through our meal we were approached by who we would assume was the manager. He never told us. He said that our table was actually already reserved and that we needed to move tables. He offered us a free desert for it and said he would inform our waiter. I ordered a second drink from the bar and never got it. The check was full of all the non-delivered items. We waited 20+ minutes for a desert that was still uncooked that we were charged for. We asked for the manager but never showed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I love soul food, and buttons serves soul food. That's as positive as I can get. The waitress checked on us every forty-five seconds. That's not an exaggeration. We timed her. On valentine's day, let your guests talk to each other a bit. If they can over the loud music. Loud music would have been great once the band got there, but this was just supposed to be background music. The tables were so close to each other that neighboring diners started commenting on our food. Which was weird. My wife and I split a bottle of wine, and the waitress was very insistent that we not pour it ourselves. Since she hovered so persistently, this wasn't too much of a problem as we never had to wait more than a minute. The food was good, but not amazing.

    We had an early Valentine's dinner & it was so good that we'll want to go back very soon. The menu for Valentine's Day was a special fixed menu with a lot of our favorite dishes included. However, the calamari steaks appetizer is one of our favorite & was NOT included. We substituted the fried green tomatoes & the spicy fried chicken wings instead. The green tomatoes were delicious, as always, but the chicken wings were a little too spicy for our taste. The Oxtail entree was "fall off the bone" tender & had a fabulous flavor. The Salmontine entree was cooked to perfection with a wonderful side of creamed spinach. The Raspberry Bread Pudding for dessert was decadent & made even better with extra sauce. Our server, Ben, was very enjoyable.

    My husband and I had an 8:45 reservation&arrived@ 8:30.I was told our table wasn't ready yet (no problem)& we waited 15-20 mins.The lady at the front stated we could be seated but we had to be done by 10:15 since that table was reserved. She said our reservation didn't mean we would actually have a seat, per their policy. If that is the case, why would I have to leave for another "reservation"? We just had dessert (only so my husband could listen to the band) and left. Although that was not my first time there, I don't think I will be going back.

    Fried chicken dinners and all the sides were perfect. All four at our table had the same thing and it was a hit! Nice to let dinners choose which 3 pieces of chicken we wanted. Very good value for good food. The only down side was the crowed table set up. We were so close to our neighboring table and in a major walkway. The set up was not good as a birthday party was in the same vicinity. However, the food overcame those obstacles. Will be back for sure!
