Reata is one of our favorite all-time restaurants. We travel through Alpine once or twice a year and always eat at least once at the Reata. The food, service, and atmosphere never fail to be top notch in all respects. We were traveling this year with friends and took them to the Reata. The husband of our friends said that his Ribeye was the best steak he had ever had. My wife and his wife both had the Carne Asada and declared their dinners great. My biggest disappointment was that they no longer have draft beer. If you visit Alpine, TX., do not miss the Reata you will not be disappointed.
Our waitress was awesome !
Texas comfort food in an old house in Alpine. It fits the area nicely, and the staff was super friendly. We started with a bowl of the shrimp and corn chowder, which was excellent and full of shrimp. None of the mains we selected were particularly noteworthy, but all were eaten. We had the chicken fried chicken, grilled chicken with blue cheese and tomatoes (best dish, chicken was cooked perfectly), penne Alfredo chicken and the burger. Wine list was very thin by the glass, although there were a few nice bottles available, up to a Silver Oak Cab, to give some perspective. My teenagers had the dessert, apple crisp with the ice cream as the highlight, and my wife had the creme brulee which was a solid preparation.
A great restaurant in the middle of nowhere. I had the best Chicken Fried Steak I’ve had in years.
Drove down to Alpine for a weekend getaway / mini-Honeymoon. Reatta was wonderful. The food was great, the service was fabulous, and the experience was well worth the price tag. I definatley recommend Reatta for a special occasion or that really significant person in your life.
The Reata is a true gem of a restaurant tucked away in the center of downtown Alpine. When you enter, the cozy ambiance hits you immediately and it is much larger than it looks from the outside. You can always count on unique specials of the day and the amazing steaks, chicken fried chicken, fresh scrumptious salads, chicken tortilla soup, deserts and bar drinks.
Great Atmosphere, great food and great service! All around, very very good! Would highly recommend dining here!
recommended by my brother, so glad we went. will go again if ever back in Alpine.
Beef tenderloin tacos were great. So was the tortilla soup, though very spicy. Friendly service.
Service and food were good, as a vegetarian, the options are slim...I know we are in a cattle producing area, and most residents are not vegetarians, but it still would be nice to have, maybe a pasta entree or something besides a vege plate...otherwise, for all my guests, it was great.
