Great service and food, as usual. Always a delightful experience. To me, the sign of a good restaurant is where the drinks are properly made, and these folks never disappoint.
It was a special occasion, but it was not a special meal. It was very noisy and our table was in a very busy walk-through. The appetizers were very good. The salads were old and some of the tomatoes spoiled. The four entrees were excellent, very good, good, and poor. I expect all very good to excellent at these prices. The entree arrived more than 75 minutes after we were seated. The waitress was very nice and did her best explaining that there was a table of forty people to be served. We were comped two glasses of wine which I requested and a creme brulee. Still, I expect more from such a great place. My 350 dollars is worth just as much as anyone from the table of forty. We will not return any time soon.
Our waiter treated us like we were bottom feeders, the quail was very dry. My steak had no flavor. Very disappointed, won’t be back for that $.
Great food, great service and overall great experience. Prices were fair. Ambience was nice, just seemed a bit sterile in a dated sort of way.
The food is absolutely amazing and the service is beyond compare.
Wish we weren’t made to sit in the bar area. Who pays 200$ to fine dine in a bar?? Me, I guess.
We went to celebrate a birthday and left with nothing but fantastic things to say. The food, atmosphere and service was impeccable! I can’t believe we had never gone before! We will be back very soon! Highly recommend!!
Great evening! Wonderful Elk.
We always enjoy Bonnell’s for fine food, excellent service and its pleasant ambiance—and for special occasions.
Awesome filet. Great filet. Did I mention the filet!?
My wife and I celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary and we were treated like royalty. The food was 5 star.
Fort Worth is a bit far afield for us; however, we fortunately found ourselves near Bonnell’s this week. Although we showed up well in advance of our reservation we were immediately accommodated.
The accolades are well deserved. Everything, from the staff, the food and the atmosphere made it special. My wife is an Oysters Rockefeller snob and the Chef’s Oysters Texasfeller made a convert. Lightly battered, plump, sweet oysters on a bed of perfectly cooked spinach with tasso and a just-right Hollandaise sauce was a winner. House salad was good as was the Gazpacho. The (again) perfectly cooked redfish was standout (haricot verts properly crunchy) and the Chile Relleno was a great take on a pretty standard item. Being able to have multiple wine selections by the ½ bottle is well thought out for those who want wine with their meal but still have to drive home. Too bad Bonnell’s isn’t closer!
Bonnell's remains one of our favorite restaurants, but on this occasion it was less than stellar. The steak and chocolate were excellent, the chef's salad disappointing, but it was the service that was most disappointing. Abrupt, unprofessional––we had been seated 15-20 minutes and were never offered bread of any kind. We'll be back but maybe next time we'll make it mid-week, rather than a Friday evening.
Celebrating 70th birthday with a wonderful dinner at Bonnell’s. Our dinners were delicious and service was attentive yet unobtrusive. Will look forward to coming again soon.
It was great
Booked Bonnell's for our 27th anniversary celebration. I'm a hero in my wife's eyes . . . food was great, Sheila provided excellent service (been on the waitstaff for 16 years) and the ambience was romantic yet relaxed.
We started with a Malbec wine by the glass. One of the better ones we have had lately. We added a shrimp and cheese grits appetizer. My wife was enthralled with the mix of flavors - grits, shrimp, andouille sausage, and jalapeños . We followed that with the Peppercorn Buffalo Tenderloin, grilled asparagus and truffled potatoes. The tenderloin was extremely tender and the asparagus was grilled perfectly. My wife also enjoyed the cornbread, slightly sweet and airy. I topped off my meal with the Margarita Key Lime Pie . . . loved the added zest from the salt around the edge of the serving dish!
We will be back for another special occasion in the future!
Great food. Took my wife here for her birthday and she loved it. Well worth the money. The service couldn’t have been better. Definitely will be going back.
We had an excellent server and our food was exactly as ordered. My husband had the special which was antelope chops and he said they were delicious. I was very traditional and ordered a filet which was tender and cooked to my liking, while our guest had the pepper crusted filet which he said was great. Other than being a bit noisy due to the party behind us it was a wonderful meal.
Our first time here, but definitely not our last. (I've lived here for over 35 years--why have I never been here before? Shame on me!) She had peppered buffalo, I had mixed grill (andouille sausage, quail, buffalo, elk tenderloin). All were perfect. The peppered buffalo is a standout. Butternut squash soup (containing poached pears and hazelnuts) was awesome. Appetizer (Texas bruschetta with, among other things, some of the best goat cheese I've ever tasted) was marvelous. Desert (apple crisp with house made vanilla ice cream) was to die for. Had a decent NA Beer (St. Pauli NA)--I don't drink alcohol. Outstanding coffee (really important to us). Service was attentive but not intrusive. Owner/executive chef made the rounds of the tables and made us feel welcome. Easy to see why this place tops Zagat listing.
I’ve eaten at Bonnell’s several times and have always been well satisfied. It’s great for groups of friends and family. This time I had the special Wild Boar Fillet and it was excellent. We all finished with Crem Brûlée.
solid meal; welcoming setting that is friendly to all ages; pleasant staff
the food and service is always top quality.
Two favorites is the Elk Tacos
And Joel. 😊
Great food. Nice experience.
This is my favorite restaurant. Love the food. It is so nice to see Bonnell come by see his customers.
Chef Bonnell never fails. The food is sometimes exotic but always wonderful. Our server was remarkable, all smiles, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We've been celebrating our anniversary there for fifteen years and can't wait to go back so, we occasionally go just for fun and the great food! Thanks again Chef Jon!
Very creative preparation of locally sourced ingredients. Very high quality service. Great bottle wine list although the "by-the-glass" list is nothing special. The pheasant tamales were serious.
We regularly dine at Bonnell’s. The service is personable. The food can be eccentric but always a surprise. On this occasion the noise level seemed higher than normal but likely due to where we were seated.
Bonnell’s never disappoints for a great meal, atmosphere and customer service. Thank you.
Bonnell's is one of our local favorites! There is always the standard menu plus a changing seasonal menu - I love ordering off both. The great thing about Bonnell's is you get a quaint, cozy atmosphere that is pretty casual, but top-dollar service and food. We love coming here!
Absolutely fantastic as expected. Service is exceptional
Outstanding and unique food, service, and atmosphere to celebrate life!
We went to dinner with another couple and had a fabulous get together. The food was fantastic, drinks were marvelous, and the server was a lot of fun. Again, we had a wonderful evening with great good, drinks, and friends. Recommend it to anybody!
Had a very nice dinner and enjoyed unique entrees featuring wild game, good pairings and a great wine list.
Fantastic food ! We love this Fort Worth restaurant !
Outstanding in all aspects. Great service. Food is as good as you will find in the metro-plex. We brought guests from out of state for a taste of Texas and everyone was very impressed. They are already talking about a return visit.
Celebrated 50th anniversary with wonderful food and great ambiance.
Slow service, almost like we were completely forgotten about especially at the end.
Upside: incredible steak... and everything else!, one of the very best spicy margaritas Ever!
If you have the time and $$. Do Not miss Bonnells!!!
My dish as seasonal dish offering of elk tasted like it was frozen too long and then cooked. It was one of the most uninspiring dishes that I have had in a very long time. I did not finish the meal. The wife’s dish of fish was flavorful dish in the special dishes afford on the menu. The whole point of the restaurant has been protein that was meat forward rather than a dish of fish as one can get at his dish forward waters restaurant Overall it was an unpleasant destination that misses the mark of what the restaurant can be and should be. I normally love each of his restaurants and enjoy his TCU game day offerings. Today was not a high point in his food empire.
Great place to enjoy good food and good wines.
We were celebrating a friends birthday. As always we had a great experience enhanced by a truly remarkable service team.
