This place is awesome we had thanksgiving dinner here and my steak was perfect so good my only complaint is the sides weren’t very hot more like barely warm. But that was the only thing our server was great and we will hopefully be back next year for thanksgiving again.
Had THANKSGIVING dinner here, brought a date, for the money I paid I expected a lot better food and service, our appetizers came up promptly and were on point, our super salads came out and we're cold even though we ask for our squash bisque to be brought out warm twice. The entrees made it out way before before our sides made it out and when the sides came out they were ice cold. Two couples came in 30 to 45 minutes after us and were served 1st. My turkey dinner was satisfactory and my dates porkchop was excellent. The dessert was the best part. Our server was attentive and kind I just don't know why everything was so cold by the time it came out to and why we were served so late, for the money paid I expect that a lot more it's a shame because the ambience, location and setting was awesome. Throughout dinner I did think of giving them another chance now I'm not so sure.
Food was very good. Too much finishing salt on several items. Very good Thanksgiving menu. Ella was superior. Never felt rushed. Thank you 97 West. Miriam was very personable and efficient at breakfast.
Our dinner was a Thanksgiving package. The appetizer selection was interesting. Chicken-fried Quill? Who would have thought. My wife and I had the turkey entree. Rather bland. The sides, potatoes, cranberry sauce, dressing, string beans and yams were served family style. Advertised but unappealing. A friend had the steak entree. He rated it very good. We might try again but not soon.
Great food. As with a lot of restaurants right now, not enough staff but they were doing their best.
Made a reservation for 7:00. Table was not ready when we arrived. After waiting 20 minutes we were seated. Ordered our food and it was over an hour before it was delivered. Will not go back.
Love the patio at 97 West. Beautiful setting, great food and attentive wait staff. My fav new spot!!!!
We did a table of 5 sharables per 5 people and it was more than enough food! Such a great concept and exceptional food! Beaux was our server and knew exactly what kind of cocktails to recommend!!
We ordered the Tomahawk steak. It came out smaller then the bone in ribeye. For a $140 steak we were disappointed. The manager tried to keep justifying how it was 32oz. There was no way. It also comes out sliced which we thought was odd. She replaced it with another ribeye which was okay, but not a $50 steak either. It was tough. We prefer H3s steaks for the same price point. Our server was amazing! We had the farmhouse salad with salmon. By far the best salmon I’ve ever ate at a restaurant. We will come back for that. The skillet potatoes that came with the steaks were delicious. The mashed potatoes were mediocre at best. We definitely won’t order a steak here again. We do want to give Brunch a try. The restaurant and building are beautiful.
The wait staff was excellent. The hostesses need some training. She had many open tables and refused to seat us 15 minutes before our reservation. When she did seat us it was right next to a table of four when many other tables were open nearby and the waitress apologized for not getting to us quickly because she was over seated. We decided to move ourselves and were well taken care of in another section. It was beautiful and a great atmosphere, but the clientele will expect more from the service.
Great food, service and ambiance. Will definitely be back!
Just OK, we ordered a steak..which according to my date was great. I had Red snapper with bean..to my mu surprised when you combine light flaky fish with heavy to digest add on...even the presentation left a lot to desire.
Desert menu..way below expectation..
Coctail bar...I asked for Old Fashioned cocktail ...it was just whiskey...mixed with some bitters...again presentation in a sticky glass...
Overall disappointing experience.
Thank goodness for fun service ..from Jason.
On the other hand ambiance..breath taking..
The restaurant is located inside the beautiful, western decorated Hotel Drover. It all feels very authentic western. Friendly people, good drinks and steaks. A bit expensive, but nice for a special occasion.
Everything was great! Beautiful place and ambience was fabulous. Jackson was our server and he was amazing!
This was our 1st time there. We had a reservation and the hostess was very at tentative and got us seated on time. The server was very good and the food was great. However it took longer than expected to get our drinks and food. It was also very noisy
Excellent service , great food !
Amazing! Our service Jenna was top notch and food was outstanding.
Setting is fabulous. Server was so friendly & knowledgeable. Food was great. Next time will have cocktail.
Wonderful ambience! Amazing food and friendly service!
We ate Tuesday night for my birthday dinner. We were so very impressed with the service as well as the atmosphere and the food! We will definitely recommend 97 West Kitchen to others!
Great food, cooked exactly as requested. Service was attentive with the perfect amount of “check ins”
Delicious food and great service! The antelope, grilled medium rare is perfect!
Steak was excellent. Salmon was salty and a bit dry.
We had the ribs and shared a full rack and it was plenty for both of us, very tender and delicious so was the macaroni and cheese, very nice service
We really enjoyed our evening and supper, celebrating my nephews return from deployment. Everything was delicious and Ella's service and smile made our night.
Made dinner reservations for family friend and work colleagues. After all of the hype, we was underwhelmed. Service was great, food was good. Have had better steak experiences in Fort Worth, and yes two of the folks in our party are in the meat business.
Stockyards were exceptional.
We loved everything about it! The decor, the food, the wine. It was all great. And, when we visit Ft. Worth again, we will be back.
Patrick was our server. He was great. He was attentive but sensitive to our mood. He didn’t rush us. We all enjoyed our drinks and food was terrific. Ambiance was nice and valet parking an added bonus to make the evening enjoyable. We will br back and have already recommended it to our friends. Thanks!
Was really disappointed. We manned reservations for brunch, but when we showed up we were told that they no longer had the brunch menu or the brunch buffet and did away with it 2 weeks prior. Would have appreciated knowing in advance. The food menu was limited and often no brunch options.
Excellent service, great food and the place was awesome!!
Have eaten here many times. While service was good at dinner - food was absolutely terrible. All three of us didn’t finish our dinner. Breakfast service and and food was Cold and poorly prepared. We won’t be back.
Best steak I’ve had. Excellent food and cocktails. I loved the atmosphere too
The service felt quite rushed except for when it was important…soup came out last and was not hot and when we needed the check! Our server was very friendly, but we lost him when it got busier. The food was good, but they were out of the oysters which was one of the reasons we chose to dine there. I love the dining space and the steak was delicious! We’ll go back, but they better have the oysters!!
Great dining experience! We loved the food and service was A+++++. Patrick was our server and was one of the best we ever had.
This is my new Favorite place. I love the food. We love being on the patio and by the firepits. The bar is fantastic! and we love, love, love Even, our server. We are going back again at the end of this month. Now every time someone wants to go to dinner for their birthday, we bring them here. I just noticed today that 97
West has Brunch on Saturday and Sunday. They can expect to see me there for Brunch as well.
Celebrated our anniversary here Food was phenomenal! Service was fantastic!
The Hotel Drover is exceptionally beautiful and filled with cowboy chic decor. The patio is a wonderful place to dine and the musician in the "backyard" is a great addition. The service was mediocre. Our server was nice but not efficient - didn't seem to be very well trained. I ordered ceviche and it was "fishy". The fish was obviously not fresh and also not seasoned well - not enough lime. I could not finish it. The fried green tomatoes were good. My husband had the tacos and he liked them. All in all, we were disappointed with the food and service but the ambience made up for it.
The ambiance here is absolutely beautiful. We sat on the patio and it was a beautiful night. The service was awesome. Drinks delicious. We had burgers, the antelope, salmon and gnocchi. The only disappointment was the gnocchi. Everything else was amazing. Will definitely be back.
Great service from Hailey! Food was great! We can't wait to try dinner.
We were offered a drink menu but never got it. Ordered a crab/ mushroom dip appetizer and never got it. Soup was delivered cold. Grilled cheese and brisket sandwiches were dry. The restaurant wasn't very crowded but it took a long time for our food to arrive. Very disappointed.
