Made reservations several days in advance and looked forward to being there for the second time. When we arrived I gave my name and after some discussion between the hostess and the manager we were seated as far from the stage as they could place us even though there were several tables closer to the stage. The food was good and our waitress was exceptional. After an hour another couple we had invited showed up as the band was getting started. Shortly after that we were asked to vacate the table because someone else had reservations at that time. We were the only table asked to move to a side bar where there were no seats available. We just spent over $250 for dinner and drinks and then forced to stand up because there were no more seats. No other table was asked to move. Buttons is predominately a black restaurant and club. We happened to be the only non black couple sitting in the dining area. Our friends were non white. I have experienced this type of reverse discrimination a time or two and just ignored it but this was so blatant and in a place we enjoyed in the past I just couldn’t let it go. I was very disappointed in the whole experience. Never again Buttons.

My first time at Buttons. We had a great table to enjoy the band, but yet could talk without yelling. The food was delicious & our server was excellent. If I lived in Fort Worth, I would go back often!

This is our second time to have the Sunday brunch. Both times the food was very good and the service was great. This time our server was Zeb; she heard us talking about my daughter's birthday and asked her name. She said happy birthday and every time she was at our table she called my daughter by name. This is a small thing but it made my daughter feel special. We will definitely be back.

I reserved a table for four, through Open Table, on 03/16/18. We only had to wait about 5-6 minutes to be seated. The hostesses were nice, our waiter Lonnie was great, the food was good (thanks for the decaf coffee), and the band was awesome. The restroom was a lot cleaner than it’s been in the past. Overall, we had a blast. There is no place like Buttons in Fort Worth or North Texas.

My experience was unpleasant
I reserved a table for me and my lady for her birthday a week prior for March 10, 2018 at 8:15pm. I arrived at 8:10pm. We had to enjoy the live band from the congested entry way. I checked on my table at 8:45pm, and it was still unavailable. We left at 8:55pm. I received a phone call around 9:09pm to let me know our table was ready. This was my first and last time going to this place. I will not be going back.

If the owner is a tall white male, he never came to the host booth where we check in at. He avoided that area, walked around and smiled. I assume he was only checking on the overall business for the evening and the seated guest.

We had a reservation and the lady at the front desk left us standing for 20 minutes we had to get someone else to seat us our food was cold it was extremely over crowded like we were at a club or something and we’ve dine there numerous times and never had that experience the guy who was entertaining couldn’t sing, he sang for 25-30 mins and took a 30 break after maybe 3 songs it was just horrible! And we had invited friends it was their first time and the whole night was embarrassing

Worst experience ever. They had closed the kitchen prior to my confirmed reservation. When the manager made them reopen it there was verbal dissenting from the wait staff and kitchen staff. We had 4 in my dinner party and none of thought the food was even mediocre. Luke warm at best on the proteins and the aide dishes had clearly been reheated and over processed.

Made reservations for 9:30pm, but was not seated until 10:30pm. That is my only complaint. Food was delicious, music was amazing and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, had a most enjoyable experience and definitely will return.

Buttons Ft. Worth has always been a favorite spot for me and my friends. Unfortunately, it has been a while since my last visit. But let me say, it was just as I remembered! Great food. Great vibes. Great service. Great music. The band was amazing! And I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the greens were made with turkey instead of pork. I will definitely make it a priority to make the next visit sooner.

The Sunday brunch buffet was amazingly stupendous awesome scrumptious. The music was just too loud...if the bass guitar and drums would have been at a much lower decibel it would have been enjoyable. I will go back but not if there is love music

1st of hostess was burping in our faces after not even acknowledging our presence while on the phone. Service once seated was so slow we thought about serving ourselves. Had to wait for glasses to get a mimosa, then there was black unidentified specks in one. It was replaced by lady who appeared to be in mgmt not out server. Food was not special. Ordered chicken and waffles. Chicken overcooked and hard. Portion on salmon was minimal, we still ended up eating elsewhere because we were still hungry and unsatisfied. It was our anniversary and drove from Frisco, TX. Because we had went to the closed location in Addison years ago and thought the experience would be good. So disappointed and embarrassed because I suggested the place, ruined anniversary and I ended up in tears. Never will recommend and in fact will post my experience and tell others about it.

This is a place to enjoy when you're not in a rush. I've made 2 reservations for after 8pm thus far. Both times I've checked in 15 min prior and waited over 30 min past my reservation time. There isn't much seating in the waiting area. If you stand outside you run the risk of getting passed over. The hostess calls your name from her (both times) booth which is inside. Both times I've come, there have been at least 20 ppl waiting to be seated. The food for 2 comes out quickly. The food to my husband and me has been okay. We definitely favor the fried chicken over other dishes. Both of the desserts that I ordered were half eaten....not to my liking. Not sure about the food time for large groups. The atmosphere is GREAT for a mature hangout place. I will definitely return for the atmosphere; not so much for the food.

The place is run down, ripped seats, sticky table, and they're rationing out food. They served me a 1/2 of a chicken breast, abd I work in food industry, so I know it was cut in half to make 2 plates. Unclean dining area, with seats with big tips. My date actually got sick after the meal, either from the horrible drinks we had or the under cooked chicken she had.
