I absolutely love Ellerbe's. The menu can be overwhelming with ingredients most people may not be familiar with, but literally everything on the menu is fantastic. Chef Molly has a creative approach to simple ingredients (like wheat berries or squash) in which she elevates it into a phenomenal and savory experience. She's pushed me out of my comfort zone to try things I typically wouldn't, and I absolutely trust her to prepare a brilliant menu. Without a doubt, you have to try the Maw Maw's Bread Pudding. It's unlike any dessert I've ever had!

The service was fine. Our server was pleasant and polite. My meal was okay. The beef was good and prepared properly, but the side dish was dry and unrecognizable. They did something I absolutely do not like in a restaurant. They put my nice white wine on ice however, they did not place it near my table so I had to rely on the server to refill my wine glass. If I was empty I would have to wait for my server or get up and walk past 2 tables to serve myself my own wine. They also placed another table's wine bottle in with mine. I am not trying to sound uptight but for the amount of money this dinner cost, I should have my wine next to my table.

A good farm to table type restaurant... I have been to Ellerbe a few times. Really enjoyed the fresh tomato salad - was a great way to start the meal. The table shared the cheese board which was also a good starter. All three diners had different fish dishes which were fine - but the swordfish could be called unremarkable. Service was fast and sharp the whole evening - but the restaurant was half full on a Wednesday evening.

A terrific evening, as always. Our waiter, John ( ?, almost sure ) was just terrific. Did a great job of being friendly, but not familiar. Wonderful help with both food and wine selections. He is a great asset. The kitchen did a terrific job, my pheasant was moist, and very flavorful. We shared a bread pudding that was to die for! My favorite place in Fort Worth.

We have been here many times, and it is always really special. I had paneed lobster that was wonderful. Other folks had snapper or swordfish. For appetizers there was amazing carrot soup and shrimp hushpuppies that were just delicious. Wonderful service, very informative and attentive and a very comfortable place. We have never been disappointed.

Overall, the experience was fantastic. We came to celebrate our anniversary, so the only thing I would change is the pace. We felt a bit rushed and after dessert, we weren't offered another drink or coffee. We were just brought the check. Other than that, the experience was great and the food was fantastic!

We had a date night and the service was great. We both really enjoyed the entrees (summer squash and steak). We each had a salad (melon and Asian pear) the melon being the favorite. The desserts were fantastic. We will go back with family and friends.

Scott the waiter was a riot. Very helpful. The food was very good. Escargot, shrine hush puppies, park chop - all quite good

Dessert -tell them not to deliver the child's plate. The sizes are quite small.

Ellerbe uses in season, local, fresh ingredients to create unique and delicious dishes. I had the steak which was very good, but the pork chop my wife had was incredible! We shared the bread pudding for dessert and it was amazing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

My husband and I had such a lovely, peaceful dining experience. I was so excited about the creative local fare! The food was delicious and thoughtful. The ambience was peaceful, yet cheery. The service was friendly, but not intrusive. And the imaginative dessert menu fills a gaping hole in the Fort Worth culinary experience! This is my new favorite restaurant for special occasions!
