This was our first time to dine at Bonnells'. This place has an upscale and pricy menu. But I have spent $125 for a meal before and did not enjoy the meal. That was not the case here. We had the caesar salad, soup of the day and the bison tenderloin. All were fantastic. My wife normally likes her steaks medium well but our waiter cautioned her to reconsider due to the richness of this steak. He said it is bet served medium rare. She changed her request to medium and it was perfect.

Our waited (Monc, I think) was outstanding and attentive. All in all, it was a perfect evening for us. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We had a great time celebrating my daughter's birthday. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was nice and relaxing. The pecan crusted red fish and the bourbon buttermilk pie was to die for!

We were there to start a new tradition…to reclaim an old painful anniversary by making a new one. Everyone was so welcoming and attentive. And of course the food was outstanding! Perfectly cooked, crazy delicious and generous portions. Our waitress Jolene was exceptional and made our evening very special. #lucky13

Our server Mox was amazing, he was very attentive and answered any questions we had and offered alternative suggestions when we weren’t sure about something. The best dish we had was the spicy pumpkin soup which had the best flavor, and our cocktails were excellent. Overall unfortunately we found the rest of our food underwhelming and very under-seasoned… and maybe that’s just our personal taste palate. There wasn’t anything terrible in the way of being inedible by any means, just not the food experience we had hoped for. I can see why it’s a popular spot for the older crowd- nothing too fussy, great service, you don’t feel rushed… just don’t think it was a fit for us.

Another fabulous evening at Bonnell’s! We had the Oysters Texasfeller to start. Our Bison tenderloin was prepared exactly as we like it. Dessert was excellent as well. Our waiter, Garrett, was very friendly and attentive to our needs and preferences. We will be back soon.

Enjoyed a wonderful Anniversary dinner at Bonnell’s. Service was attentive and professional, food and drinks were top-notch, and ambience was delightful. We had elk tacos to start (fabulous. Some of the best elk I’ve had). I had the red fish and my date had the filet. Ended the night with a Fort Worth Old Fashioned and buttermilk pie. I wouldn’t change a single thing about anything we ate or drank — just absolutely the best of the best in Fort Worth.

Really relaxed dinner. Service just right, not rushed, but not waiting either. The bruschetta was a great choice to start. Perfect portion and very tasty.
We both had fish that was just wonderful.

If you’re looking for a very nice restaurant for a special occasion, this is it! We’ve been coming to Bonnell’s for 4 years and every time we leave with great memories. Most of the servers have been there for years and they really “make it an experience”! The food, is always impressive! The grilled bison is sooo good. There are many meats offered here that are a rare delight like quail and elk. The crusted redfish is the best I’ve ever had and the grilled chicken dish has so many flavors you can’t get anywhere else.

Our server was obviously trained in a dinner! She kept trying to take things from the table,without asking first, and before we were finished with them. Several times she would ask us a question and walk off before we had a chance to answer.
