    Service was incredibly slow. While the steaks were good, the other food was average. The queso was cold; salmon lacked flavor, and it seemed to take forever on EVERYTHING.

    This was our first time to 97 West. After lots of clients raving about the food, we decided to go and celebrate our wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect. We sat outside and the view was beautiful. Drinks and appetizer were amazing — followed by a delicious steak dinner. Everything was cooked PERFECT. Thank you for making our anniversary dinner delicious! We will definitely be back soon!

    2 of the 97 Burgers were orders, both top and bottom buns were burnt. The lady waiting our table, never checked in with table to see how our food was or if we needed anything. The environment was very loud for a fine dining establishment

    We were having a Birthday Celebration and resv for party of 6. at 1pm at 3 pm we asked to see dessert menu and sever told us the kitchen closed at 3 so there would only be what was left over. First of all how rude, especially for a celebration. I understand we prob extended our stay longer than we had expected but isnt that the attitude you want to guess to have?? Hostesses were awesome though!! Kudos to them!

    It appeared that there was not enough wait staff. Our waitress was not good. Not at all attentive. Had to ask for steak knives, then took a good while to get them. We had to wait a long time to order wine, then they didn’t even have it, although it was on their wine list. The waitress didn’t offer an alternative. It seemed like she had not been trained well. The food was lukewarm. Overpriced for the true value. We won’t go back, sad to say. We had really been looking forward to this dinner with out of town friends.

    Food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. It was a slow night (Monday night of Labor Day weekend) in the restaurant, so it was quiet. It's not a cheap place to eat, but is certainly in line with many other restaurants of this caliber. Thought the drinks were a little on the high side, but we were there for the food and atmosphere, not to drink, so not a big deal.

    No relationship with our waitress. Really wish we would have had some nice recommendations and an overall walk through of nice options of the menu. There was zero correspondence between us and the staff. Pretty disappointed as this was our first time in. Food was good but experience was lacking. It was just the two of us so it wasn’t like we needed much attention but to have zero interaction.

    It was our 12th anniversary and our first time eating here . Wanted to stay in the hotel but couldn’t afford the price of the room for just one night . Maybe 3 nights would be worth the price but not just one . Food and service was excellent. Will definitely be back to the restaurant at least 😊

    It took an hour to receive our food despite the restaurant having many open tables. The cocktails were great but the food was just ok. For the price, there are much better options in Fort Worth.
