Overall the food was decent, some of it was over priced for what it was. We had chips and cheese with chorizo. The chips were really stale and ruined the appetizer. The apple crisp desert made up for it luckily.

Sheila was absolutely amazing! We were pleasantly surprised by the customer service which we know made the food taste even better. A must for a celebration or just a dinner or lunch out! The prices are high during dinner but I think lunch menu was perfect and perfect portion. Thank You Sheila and Bonnell’s for making our anniversary amazing! God bless!

This was our first visit. We were two couples out for a Friday evening.
We all started with salads. I had the house, another the seasonal and 2 shared their version of Caesar. All were fresh and delicious.
For entree’s, 2 had the seafood bouillabaisse, which was a special. My husband felt all the seafood was excellent except the shrimp. I don’t know what variety of shrimp were used but they were translucent and didn’t seem to be cooked throughout. But it could be just the variety of shrimp. Overall enjoyed the dish but with so many other menu options he may choose different next time. I had the pecan crusted redfish off the classic menu. It was melt in the mouth delicious. It was topped with jumbo lump crabmeat and brown butter with the most perfect nutty flavor. It was cooked to perfection. I will have a hard time not ordering it on our next visit. The fourth guest chose the Texas bruschetta appetizer for her entree. It was a very generous portion of toppings served with what I believe was a basket of toasted pita wedges. It looked fabulous, all was consumed and we will definitely order it on our next visit. Both couples ordered dessert and were enjoyed. But unfortunately I can not remember what was ordered.
One very pleasant surprise was our wine choices. Two of us ordered Waters Pinot Noir and one ordered Bonnell’s Cabernet Sauvignon. They were delicious. Kudos to Jon for creating such great wines for his restaurant
We are couples in our 60’s and 70’s. We appreciate a restaurant where we can still enjoy a conversation while enjoying a fabulous meal. The setup of the restaurant allowed for that.
I’m sorry I can’t remember our waiters name but he was professional, friendly, efficient and courteous. Job well done.
Both my husband and I commented that it was the most enjoyable restaurant experience we have had in a very long time. We look forward to returning to Bonnell’s in the near future and will certainly add it to our list for out of town guests.

This is our go-to place for fine dining in Fort Worth. Their seasonal menu always has interesting choices and is a good partner to their regular menu. And wow, their wine list! The last two times we've had dinner there our server was Sheila and she is excellent. Try to get her if you can.

It was nice but in the past we always get there early, have a coctail at the bar before being seated. We did the same, however the bartender was rude and the coctail waitress was rude as well. I'm not sure why they were so very put off but it made my fiance and my Mother very uncomfortable. We told my Mother how wonderful everyone is there but they were not this time. We went Satuday to spend Valentine's together, as a gift to my Mom. Turned out to be a bit dissapointing
