Loved our date night at Ellerbe. Everything was memorable from the service and atmosphere to the food. We especially loved the bread pudding. It would be worth a trip just for that dessert!!

We've dined here many times before. Love the restaurant updates. Not sure if the cook was having an off day? The raviolo was not warm and very firm/dry. The cauliflower soup was ok. Our entrees were tasty but not the "wow" we have experienced in prior meals. The waiter seemed stressed and not as relaxed as our prior servers. Understanding that maybe the winter storms may have had an effect? We'll be back. We know how great our prior visits have been.

Service was good. Steak was cooked perfectly, but under seasoned. Some hits but some bigger misses, overall very overpriced and underwhelming.

Normal 5 star experience was off this time. Food was usual special treat, but service failed me this night. Don’t think it is indicative of trend, more one-off, but we will see.

Fixe price menu so we made our choices and I stressed twice to service I needed the steak a real medium. He asked “medium plus”, I said “yes”. It came out medium rare at best and had to be returned to kitchen, ruining the whole flow of the evening. The server also asked me if wanted the wine pairings for the courses, and I said “no, we are just going to have a glass of wine with the whole meal” and I selected 2 glasses from the by-the-glass menu. Instead, he brought out a bottle of the wine I ordered and not the other glass (different wine) we ordered. He poured me a sample to taste of the first wine and after I said it was ok, he started pouring a glass of that wine for my date. I immediately said “we didn’t order a bottle of wine, just two separate glasses, and where’s the wine I ordered for my date?” He said, oh yeah, you didn’t order a bottle, and he went and got a glass of the second wine. Ok, honest mistake, but when I got the bill, I had been charged for the whole bottle. Shocked I was being asked to pay for the servers mistake, but since it was Valentines weekend special I didn’t want to make a scene.

This overall bad experience is certainly not indicative of my other previous trips to Ellerbe Fine Foods, so hoping this was a one-offer. I’ve been there enough to know this server was someone I’d not seen before, so maybe needs more training

Our food and service were excellent. And while we appreciate that temperatures of all guests were taken prior to seating, the tables were too close together for our comfort. The rules are still 50% capacity and 6 feet apart no matter what the capacity limits are. That just wasn't the case at all. Every table was filled and there wasn't close to 6 feet of separation between most tables.

This place is exceptional. The service, the food quality and wine selection is top notch. Some items to note (definitely a preference, not a quality statement) the gumbo has amazing depth of flavour but ours had brisket in it and it was very mild-simply a texture and spice preference; the halibut and the mixed green veg entree had Texas Toast as a base to prop up the presentation maybe? The consensus was perhaps a cauliflower purée would make a better presentation to an otherwise impressive meal. We couldn’t figure out how a restaurant that has insanely good bread flown in from California would use plain toast, I probably missed the memo. Well worth the visit and excellent quality for the money. Ashley‘s service was impeccable and a testament to the quality of the restaurant.

Wonderful service - very attentive and knowledgeable. Beautiful wine pairing suggestion. I love the seasonal and fresh menu. I started with the mushroom salad - mushrooms over a bed of arugula. It’s duck season...so I had the duck! Rich, great flavours and the meat just Dallas off the bone...but not over-seasoned, and with a New Orleans twist. Paired with the Trefethen Dragon’s Tooth. Finished off the decadent meal with bread pudding covered in coffee ice cream and a sherry. Whew!

We really enjoyed the food. It was nice to eat locally sourced ingredients. However, it was far too expensive for what we received. The wine pour is around 4 ounces a glass and the portions are tiny. I appreciate the dedication to flavor, but felt I paid about $80 more than it was worth.

Just absolutely PERFECT, 110%!!!! The BEST New Years Eve dining experience we have had in a long time! Thanks to Ellerbee’s!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience from the valet to the check!
All employees on point imo!
Very well organized and trained staff, as the owners obviously care about Service of the 2nd Mile.
Our food server was Ledi and she was very knowledgeable and helpful about the restaurant, not to mention her attention to detail and attentiveness.
Managers checked in frequently with us and was above the service level of comparable establishments...if anyone restaurant could even try to compare to what we experienced.
The food was expertly prepared, great chef here.
The wine list was probably the most diverse I have seen in Fort Worth, and it was broad, not confined to a couple of pages!!
Try the 2013 German Pinot Noir from The Galway Vineyard, you won’t be disappointed!!
I will say I was impressed upon check in at hostess stand as they had hand sanitizers, individual packets, masks, and even took temperatures of guests before seating. All staff properly masked up, and wore them appropriately Ilo letting them drop down !!
We will return and IF you want a fine dining experience in Cowtown, get a reservation....and Enjoy!
