For an evening venue, this place is not good. The ambiance was similar to a cafeteria, which is really the main purpose this restaurant was meant to serve. The service was poor and the food was very overpriced. Very bad value for what you are getting. We paid $19 for a flatbread!!!

The views are fantastic. It feels like a secret spot, and I'd recommend locals check it out. But in general it still felt like a hotel restaurant. The food was kind of pricy for what it was, and the waiter wasn't very attentive considering it was a pretty quiet night there. Overall it was good, not great.

The ambiance feels like a mix between and airport and an office building lunch cafe. It does not have a fine dining feel. It all starts with a large sign advertising grab and go. Then seating feels cheap and cold. Also, the menu is sparse and wine list minimal.
I’m sure it is fine for a a quick business lunch but not a dining experience.

We did have problems using the parking garage. The gate would not open until we used the Help button and spoke to security. Parking is free with validation of the parking ticket by Branch and Bird. Upon leaving we had to enlist a security guard to find our car since the building elevator choices were confusing. The free parking is definitely a plus once you navigate the garage.

Vincent (apologies if I got your name wrong) and his staff were amazing. We spent a total of 6 Hrs. on the balcony on one of the couches, sipping the night away, watching the sunset and enjoying the moment. The food was incredible and the cocktails were spot on. I'd recommend this place to anyone and everyone that would listen!

The food was overpriced for a lunch menu. Feel we paid for the atmosphere. Quality of food was good, toasted bread was too dry for the chicken sandwich.

I finally returned to Branch & Bird for the first time this year for a business lunch, since they originally opened. The restaurant has come a long way since then! The atmosphere is wonderful. The service was perfect. The food was also significantly better than originally. I will be back more often. Thanks to Open Table, I remembered this restaurant that is "above" the beaten path of Downtown Fort Worth.

It was nearly empty and it took 10 minutes to get seated. Service was slow & it took awhile for them to get us our drinks & refills. I think I was just an off night (even if it was a Friday night at 7pm)— I will try again because the food was good & I would like to sit on the porch on a nice warm night.

there were only one other occupied table in the restaurant yet the table we attempted to sit at was dirty. the hostess seated us and then nobody came by for over 15 minutes despite there being nobody in the restaurant. the hostess was hanging out with staff and didn't even try to pick up slack for the waiter even though he wasn't busy. and he walked passed us once to handle the other table and still never popped by to say hi, bring water etc. we left.

So the dinner menu for this restaurant is not listed and it’s really condensed and it’s more like small plates I was a little disappointed because they have a really great looking lunch menu but when I got there I was handed a very small menu and I was very hungry :) It was really great other than that really cool spot the food was good great wine selection and the service was really wonderful I just wish they had a little bit bigger of a dinner menu

Food wasn’t great, quality was in question. Ambiance was nice, service was excellent. Table setup and presentation made food awkward to share even though lack of entrees on menu steered you to do so.

Early St-V day. Nice sunset. Great service and Special Valentine’s Day menu was excellent. The only issue we had was as the Ft Worth night emerged...the indoor lights wiped out the view. We asked if they could dim some of the bright lights...not a significant change. Recommend going — I’m sure the warmer climate will all use of the great patios.

Great shareable plates. Sliders were the hit of the table after we heard other tables raving about them. $5 martini and old fashions on the happy hour specials. Cool music and modern vibe. I took my office there today for lunch and plan many more meals there.

The food was "just okay", the portions were very small for the prices paid. Almost entire party ordered trio salad plate but were never offered bread or crackers to go with it. For most of our time there, we were the only party dining. In good weather, I think the outside patio would be fantastic for a drink and an appetizer. Too many great places in Fort Worth to dine that are better than this.

Our first time and the first words from our server was “I am so sick”. We should have just left. The server could not describe or suggest menu items. Food was good but the atmosohere of eating in a bank lobby was not a great experience. Probably a better experience when weather is warm and can eat on the terrace.

I had the chance to speak with the service team & Managers. I apologize for your experience, please know our server was fighting allergies and not a contagious cold or virus. I can see how she could be perceived as sick based on your interaction. We will consider allergies as possible illness in the future as your experience was negatively affected. Check back during Patio Season, the view is phenomenal as we are on the Sky Lobby Level. Please note the bank is on the Ground Floor Lobby.
