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.

    We got there when it was a little busy. It took 20 minutes for my drink to be served. Our waiter was not attentive to us at all. We told him at one point we were ready to order. He said he would be right back. That he wanted to greet a table that was just seated. That table had drinks and seemed fine. 15 minutes later… he finally takes our order… but in a hurry. He was rushing off before my date was finished ordering. Then some random guy asks if we were waiting for a drink from the bar. I said yes. He said he would be right back with it… never saw him again. Still no drink. Finally the manager checks on us. I told him about my drink. Finally he brings me one. It was the wrong one! I drank it anyway! lol He then brought me the right one. There was a large party in the front room close to us. They were very loud. Just thought it made more sense for them to be in the back room. Otherwise the food was really good and we’ll Be back!

    The best dining experience my wife and I have ever had was at Lonesome Dove 13 years ago. We were hosting some guests from the West Coast in our home over the previous week, and they insisted on taking us out their last day in town. We had told them about Lonesome Dove, and they said that's where they wanted to take us. We cautioned them on the price point, but they were anxious for the experience, eager to thank us for the hosting, and not concerned about the cost; so we made Sunday evening reservations and headed to the Stockyards. Everyone had something different from the Wild Game Fettine, so it was a great sharing experience as a launch point. No disappointments here! The First Course had highs and lows. The Deviled Gulf Coast Blue Crabs and Wild Boar Ribs were the highlight, while the Rabbit Ragu Gnochi was described as "sturdy" (think REALLY al dente) by one of our guests and the Kangaroo Carpaccio Nachos were underwhelming as a cold dish. Most of us had the Bowl of Texas Red chili in the Second Course, and everyone added salt to it. The Main Course lived up to expectations. Three of us had the 9 oz Beef Tenderloin and LOVED it. My wife RAVED about the Diver Scallops, and even game me a little taste. The presentation, temperature and overall experience were what we had hoped for. I had the Warm Ancho Chile Chocolate Cake for desert, and that was also over the top awesome. So much so, in fact, that the rest of the table kept dipping into my dessert! One of our guests speaks with animated hand gestures, and spilled his drink. The staff was unoffended and courteous, but they left the drink mess on the floor, and our other guest wound up cleaning it up. Now, I'm the first guy to clean up my own messes; but, at this price point, I don't think it's too much to expect some quick clean-up service after an accident. Noise was moderate, so that we could have a conversation easily. The ambiance was nice, except for an occasional blast of light through the open door.

    Adam was our server. His professionalism and knowledge of the menu was amazing. He recognized immediately one member in our party had a gluten & dairy allergy. He quickly grabbed a different menu for them. Adam was attentive throughout the night. Our food: Bison Ribeye steak and oysters. Delicious. Best steak I've ever had and I have dined at Del Frisco's, Capital Grill, Neighborhood Services and other fine dining--this was beyond any of those. Definitely will be back and will be bringing others
