Great food, exceptional service. Our server, Dan, has many years of experience in the restaurant business and 4 years with Bonnell’s. Ask for him!

Great place to celebrate Valentines Day. Food is amazing but can get loud there.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there and loved everything about it. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and attentive. The food was spectacular. The ambiance was authentic and felt significant without feeling stuffy. Highly recommended.

Before we move away, we thought we should finally make it to Bonnell's for dinner. It was everything one would hope for...professional, delightful staff, and spectacular food!

The only "downer" for us was that we didn't notice until we got home that we had received the wrong "doggie bag" with our leftovers. I had eaten less than half of my amberjack, risotto with crab, and zucchini, and my husband had a large chunk of steak with most of his brussels sprouts and potatoes remaining. Looked like makings for delicious breakfast and dinner the next day. Sadly, when we opened the bag at home, it was someone else's leftover steak with about 3 brussels sprouts and a tablespoon of mashed potatoes. No fish, no risotto, no zucchini. And it was somebody else's steak, so it went in the garbage. Half of a $150 dinner, vanished :-(

Fortunately, after I called to mention the mix-up, the kind manager promised us a little gift certificate compensation next time we're in, but it was still a huge disappointment. Lesson learned...always check your bag BEFORE you leave!!

I went for my birthday and it was lots of fun! Our server, Chad was friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is great. Even when it's crowded, it's never loud, and the food was delicious!
I had the buffalo tenderloin and my friend had the beef tenderloin. Both were outstanding, as were the sides that came with them.
We got our dessert on a decorated plate with a candle in it, and it was complimentary too. Again, the key lime pie was yummy. We didn't leave a crumb. John Bonnell was there too, speaking to his customers. Such a friendly guy. It was a wonderful experience all around.

Valentines celebration! My husband and I enjoyed our evening at Bonnell’s. We could have shared a meal but the menu was outstanding so of course we had to order an appetizer, two entrees and dessert. Everything was delicious.

Bonnell's never disappoints! The entrees range from wonderful sea food dishes to rabbit, to Elk, to steaks, and seasonal fancies. The atmosphere is business casual with a romantic flare. Separate from the dining area is a super bar. Our experience was wonderful. We forget how much we enjoy Bonnell's.. we will be coming back more often.

Bonnell's is my favorite restaurant in Fort Worth. It's really not even close.
