Good food, good service! Even the things on the menu that you might think sound a little strange and might avoid are delicious. Try them.

 (Nashville)·Dined on June 23, 2017

Only wine and beer. No bar. Ordered steak and potatoes. Got super peppered steak (over powering) and even though the menu said it comes w augratin potatoes I got squash. I was hungry and traveling so since the steak was bad I really needed the potatoes. Then I ordered dessert that had blueberries on top and got blackberries. Funniest part was when they sat it down they said "here are your blueberries". I did not like this place and left very hungry. Would not return

I really enjoy Ellerbie for lunch...it's fast and affordable and quiet. Just makes me feel good going over there and relaxing during the lunch hour.

Was so disappointed this time. We're first ones in restaurant on Friday and seated in the back room in a corner looking into a bleak side street. My friend had Redfish she loved. My leg of lamb was so chewy and I could hardly cut it sawing like crazy with my steak knife. Worst meal I've ever had there.

When we visit Ft Worth we usually dine here. This time we were disappointed. The food seemed bland, presentation great, and service terrific. The restaurant was so noisy that my husband and I had difficulty hearing each other. In the past we enjoyed the food, wonder if there is a new chef.

First of all, the food was amazing. It's rare to find cuisine this excellent in Fort Worth. In terms of just food, this is easily in the top 10 of restaurants in the metroplex, EASILY.

I want to make a special note of the quality of service. My wife and I took our restless 2-year-old with us, and the waitstaff was very kind to her, tolerant when she got a little rowdy, and did a great job of making her feel included in the evening. Definitely not the eye-rolling you'd find in other fine restaurants.

We were blown away and will be back, hopefully many times.

Always a great experience! The food was beautifully prepared, our server picked out some wonderful sparkling roses for us to try, and the atmosphere was lovely. The price point for entrees is a little high, so be prepared.

Excellent night. Even the obnoxious family next to us couldn't bring down the feeling of the evening.

I had the rabbit pappardelle and my fiancée had the cauliflower steak (which honestly tasted like a steak), both were great. Make sure to save room for the bread pudding.

We will be back.

Great food, excellent service. My only suggestion would be to lose one two-top along the bench seat. Tables are really close there and I felt like the couple next to my elbow had to listen to our every conversation...really too close for comfort.
