Contemporary American
Chef Tim Love’s flagship restaurant, Lonesome Dove Western Bistro first opened in 2000, in Fort Worth’s Historic Stockyards District, and quickly became the city’s premiere dining establishment. Love has designed a menu influenced by all of the ingredients and cultures that have been a part of the West since the first adventure began on the Goodnight-Loving and Chisholm Trails — with an added level of modern sophistication. Love’s food at Lonesome Dove reflects his famously unique “Urban Western” cuisine, celebrating his creative uses of bold flavors and wild game, with an inventive selection of steaks and seafood to dishes such as Wagyu Tomahawk, Kangaroo Carpaccio, Rocky Mountain Elk Ribeye, Wild Boar Ribs, and Rabbit & Rattlesnake Sausage. The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro has received numerous awards and critical acclaim from Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, Zagat Survey, Southern Living, Esquire, The New York Times, Fort Worth Star-Telegram and The Dallas Morning News, and more.

    Birthday dinner. Dark, romantic dining room with rustic walls and decor. Table linens and quaint restaurant with large bar make for a perfect couples night out. Waiter was wonderful and attentive. Steaks were melt in your mouth, prepared perfectly. Side dishes enough for two. Dessert was also amazing. A must go to if you want great food and atmosphere

    Wow! What an awesome experience! We had rabbit & rattlesnake birs, yum!!! elk sliders…deliucious! Lobster balls, wonderful! chicken fried steam melted in your mouth, beef tenderloin was a delight. Restaurant vibe is really cool surrounded by awesome breweries, saloons, boutiques & a lovely restored theater. Plan an afternoon/evening of it and hit the rodeo at Cowtown Coliseum.

    While our waiter was helpful, he was not attentive. Our steaks were cool, not warm. The worst part was he aerved my husbands birthday dessert on an empty plate since his mistimed the delivery of of our dessert order. Try singing to an empty plate.

    Such a great spot for a celebratory occasion. I took my husband there for his birthday and the Buffalo ribeye was so amazing. Their cocktail menu is so unique and delicious. I loved the vibe and ambiance there. Will definitely be going back. It’s a pricey place, but a great place if you’re going to splurge!

    The atmosphere was good & service was great but the menu was not what I expected from a “Texas Steak House” in the Srockyards. It was more confusing than any menu I have ever seen and not what we wanted. It was hard to simply order a steak and their food was just not good.

    I have been frequenting the Lonesome Dove Bistro for 20 years and keep going back for the food, service and ambiance. You can come dressed in a tuxedo or in faded jeans and boots - nothing pretentious about this place. The food is carefully crafted and perfectly represents the unique culinary delights of Texas. The butter lettuce salad has been a favorite of mine for years and there is no better appetizer in Texas than the elk sliders with foie gras. The wine selection is excellent. I hope to keep coming back to the Lonesome Dove Bistro for at least another two decades!

    We were seated downstairs and it was very cold, cold enough we left are coats on. The food was great but the coldness of the room took away from the great experience we usually have. We asked to increase the heat and they said they could not do anything more.
