Frequently dine at Reata in FW but it is always fun to go to the "original" (my second visit). Excellent range of prices - however the beef was fantastic and worth the cost. Wine by the glass is somewhat limited but well priced. Will go anytime that I'm in west Texas.

We were seated as soon as we walked in (had reservation) drinks were served in less than 5 minutes order was taken then meal served appx. 20 minutes later food was cooked correctly hot enough but not to hot and had plate appeal. This is not our 1st visit here it is consistently above average and the wait staff is very well trained. We consider it worth the 130 mile round trio drive to dine here.

Only complaint to a great meal and overall experience....i had made reservations several days ahead of time. When we arrived tried to seat us at table right by the main walkway and where all traffic in rest passes. Asked to be aeated in corner amd were told that this was the table that they reserved for us. Asked for a different table and finally manager moved us to table out of walkway. At the time restaurant was half full.

Always worth the trip to Alpine to visit Reata. We started with the jalepeno soup and an order of the bacon wrapped shrimp. Very delicious and could have just stopped there but we got entrees too. I had the chile relleno which has a rich, cheesy filling and my spouse had the steak. This is not the place to go to if you are on a diet! It's a place to indulge. Of course we had no room for dessert...maybe next time.

My husband was in Alpine working and we met him to have a little family vacation. The Ft. Worth location is a favorite of ours so we always make it a point to eat here when we are in the Alpine area. We made reservations in advance (48 hours in advance to be sure and get a table- I'd HIGHLY recxomend this!) and took our three children. They loved it and enjoyed the atmosphere. Everyone was super friendly and our food was amazing. I've seen my husband tip the chef twice in my life and this occasion was one of them. His ribeye was excellent. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back every time we are out there!

Well-prepared comfort food with very good service in a rustic-ranch setting. It's what passes for fine dining in Alpine, without adventurous menu items but also without the pretentiousness of big-city restaurants.

Service and staff very friendly. Was a solid but not spectacular meal. Was worth the money. Got the signature steak - cooked perfect. Order your steak the way you want it don't fudge over/under. Mushrooms undercooked and still "wet" and didn't absorb flavoring. Stems tough. Green beans cooked al dente - meaning correctly. Limited wine list but not unexpected given location, size of restaurant. Would I eat here every time I was in town - yes!! Would I drive 300 miles just to eat here - no.

This is usually great, I love the tortilla soup and the jalapeno and cliantro soup. This time I got a Reata Club sandwich to try; however, I feel like the sandwich is mostly bread. It felt as if it was missing a good chunk of meat. The bread also, I felt, would have been good if it was toasted. The waitress was okay, she could have been more friendly as her facial expressions told a different story. The staff seemed a bit bothered when we had one extra person show up to our reservation, which I found unpleasant. We didn't think one more person would make a difference; but, apparently it was an annoyance. Another person at our table got the club and felt it wasn't very good. Other than that, it was fine.

The Jalapeño Cilantro soup was creamy and simple. Loved the Field Greens salad with goat cheese and Texas pecans. Just delicious and a nice way to convince myself I'm eating healthy before I dive into the entrees! I recommend the classic Texas favorite Chicken Fried Steak, which half our party ordered. I also love the carne asada, topped with rich warm cheese enchiladas. The only sad point was learning that they have a different dessert menu from the Fort Worth location -- I definitely missed the Dessert Tacos!

Were seated promptly at a table located as we had requested. Service was prompt, courteous, unimposing and very thorough.
Our drink order was taken immediately and served quickly.
The appetizer orders were taken and served punctually even with the substitution/alteration requested and accommodated by our server. Timing for serving the main course was perfect as was our desert order and delivery of same.
ALL the food was well prepared, presented and had excellent texture and taste.
Then the big surprise, the check which was very reasonable.
This provided for a very enjoyable dining experience and we highly recommend Reata when in Alpine Texas.

Reata was wonderful. The food was great, but best of all, was our server! She was fabulous. My 4 year old told her about it being her first trip to the area via train, so the server came back with a card signed by all the staff and a little treat. It was totally unexpected, but so sweet. Everyone was so friendly. The portions were very large and yummy!

When traveling to west Texas we always dine at the Reata. There are not a lot of upscale dining options out in this neck of the Texas frontier so in Alpine the Reata is a must-visit. Staff is friendly and accommodating. (We had a vehicular mishap en route...remember that could be an hour and a half trip from anywhere and in this case it was and they were very nice about changing our open table reservation time to accommodate our delay.) The decor is upscale cowboy in an old house in the heart of town, though a bit chilly in the room we were in that night. One couple asked to be moved because they were too cold ( granted it was about 19° Outside that night) so dress accordingly. We tried several menu options. All were good, (they are renowned for the beef) but we thought the cheesy jalapeño grits were by far the thing you need to drive to west Texas to eat. But we do suggest you ask for it without the barbecue sauce ...they stand tall all alone. We were celebrating an anniversary and were presented with a special treat and note and really appreciated that nicety. Next time we are on the road again, we will definitely stop in for some west Texas hospitality.
