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.

    Good ambiance if you like it being in character to its name. Menu looked amazing. The wild boar ribs were very tasty but a bit light on meat. We did the Tomahawk Ribeye for two (medium), and it showed up very rare. We should have asked it to be cooked more but the waiter had already sliced it. For a 5 star steak house I’d have expected him to send it back to the chef rather than slice the entire thing and serve it way too rare. A simple meat thermometer in the kitchen should have prevented the whole thing. Fries were good. For a $200steak they should have done better.

    First time eating at Lonesome Dove. Food and service was excellent. Oscar, our server, took the time to explain the menu and give his recommendations. Grace, one of the managers, checked on us and other patrons to ensure that everything was to our liking.

    Amazing food, definitely not a place for a vegan. You come here to eat meat, lots of options of meat. Vegans, stay away. Again, AMAZING FOOD!!!

    I've been here many times. But this weekend marks 2 of the worst experiences I've ever had. Why did I come back? For the tenderloin & convenience to Billy Bob's. But now that I've had 2 separate and awful experiences...you won't see my face again. I had reservations for 8:30 PM. I was on the dot at 8:25 PM. I was told to "just hang out they're getting your table ready." OK sure. Then the fun starts. A group of 5 walk in & they're checked in & seated BEFORE me & their reservation wasn't until 8:45 PM. But hang on...this is important. Their reservation was for 6 people. Mine was for 2. I finally get seated at 8:45 PM. The waiter comes over at 8:55 PM & wants to 'start my order' but asks where my 2nd person is. I tell him she's running late & he tells me "I can't start your order until all parties are here." And walks off. Excuse me? I just watched drinks being served to the table of 6 minus 1. The other hostess must have seen the look on my face because she came over & asked if I was OK. No...I'm not. I explained to her what just happened. She sends the manager over. I explain to him what just happened. Oh "that is not acceptable. I will personally make sure you are taken care of." Those are famous last words. I get a new server. What I don't get is a wine or my order taken. At 9:10 PM when I flag down 'new server'...I tell him my wine order & that I'm ready to order my dinner. Off he goes. Someone else shows up with my wine order. Then someone else with a different wine. Then a 3rd person with another wine.None of them mine. I flag down another server at 9:15 & order my tenderloin. Cold rare. At 9;30 the table next to me asked if I ordered any food because they had gone through 3 appetizers & a Bison rib eye. They were seated at 9:00 PM. I finally got my order at 9:45. I scarfed it down like a mad woman because Travis Tritt started at 10:00 PM. An hour & 45 minutes to get a meal is entirely unacceptable. I was still eating when I asked for my check.
