The service and food served at this restaurant were both fantastic! We had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Everything we ate we loved! From steaks, to sides, to soups, to desert, everything was wonderful! We will be back!

Bonnell's has been our favorite restaurant in all of DFW for years because the quality of the food and service is always outstanding, and the menu features excellent items not found at other restaurants. Fried quail legs appetizer cannot be beat!

Unique menu, highly trained and experienced wait staff, clean, comfortable table spacing, chef (John Bonnell) spent time in the room with diners. Not cheap, but well worth it for special occasions!

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.

Shrimp and grits appetizer was amazing. Red fish very fresh and well seasoned and prepared.
Stuffed poblano, filet and mixed grill were also delicious!

Our daughter was in town and requested Bonnell’s. It is our favorite place as well. Food was excellent…bison, elk, and redfish all wonderful, and we were pleased that the Texas Bruschetta was back on the menu! Service was smooth and well-timed.

We celebrated my wife's dinner at Bonnell's, our favorite Fort Worth restaurant, and everything was perfect. The food was excellent, our waiter was professional––attentive but unobtrusive––and we always appreciate the Bonnell's ambiance.

My sister and I went for our birthdays and had an awesome experience. The food and wine was, by far, the best I've ever had. I would also like to mention the staff was equally fantastic. We will definitely be coming back.

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.

We visited for DFW Restaurant Week and had a lovely evening. Excellent choices on the RW menu this year, great service from Garrett and super value for what we paid. Bonnell's is always our go-to place for special occasions and fine dining.

We went for our anniversary as part of the Restaurant Week Activities. This would rate as one of the top 5 steaks I have ever had. The food was so special and flavorful and the wine was a perfect match. Our waitstaff was very attentive but not overly so. I was impressed how they gave the same friendly service to the table next to us with two children. They were so welcoming. We are already talking about going back next year for our anniversary. Congratulations on creating such a wonderful dining experience.

You know you are dining in a restaurant that values its customers when the chef/owner stops by your table to welcome you and be certain that everything is perfect with your meal. Jon Bonnell is that chef/owner and everything WAS perfect. Incredibly good food cooked with great skill; table service provided by well-qualified waitstaff; very comfortable seating and a warm, welcoming atmosphere make this a top restaurant year after year.
