We went with friends for a birthday and it was special. Great food and service.
I took my fiance here on Valentines Day to try out a new restaurant. While the service and ambiance was good, the food was far from it. On paper, the plates had potential to be great. Execution of the plates, was not. She received salmon that was undercooked in the middle. I received a filet that was not cooked as I requested and was extremely bland. It lacked even the basic seasoning of salt and pepper. In summary, for one of the most expensive meals I've eaten recently, it leaves much to be desired so I ranked it 2 out of 5.
Pros: Good location. Great service and food. Love the ambiance. Groupons were a plus and definitely welcome.
Cons: Very disappointed that the online menu was very different from the in-house menu. Most of the items that we were interested in from the online menu were no longer available.
As soon as you walk in, you feel comfortable. You're greeted at the door right away with friendly hosts. The waitress knew the entire menu from top to bottom, she also described the wines to the T, me not being a wine drinker knew exactly what my taste buds were looking for. The noise level. What noise? I have no complaints whatsoever. The food portions may seem small, but once you start digging in you can definitely feel your tummy getting full. My husband & I have made this place our new romantic dinner getaway. 2 thumbs up.
This was our first time here. We booked reservation for 5 PM but wanted later. The next reservation was for 8:30 PM which would have been too late. Arriving and being seated, we noticed there were only two other tables in the entire restaurant that were occupied with about 5 people in the bar. By 6 PM there were still only about 15 tables occupied which certainly was not full and could have accommodated more 6 PM reservations. My wife's chicken fried steak was the largest I have ever seen but it was burned to a crisp to the extent that OTHER tables were noticing and bringing it to the attention of their waiter (my wife did not want to complain). It was taken back and replaced. I had the sea bass and it was excellent. One couple left after finding out that they were not serving lobster tail due to a special menu for Valentines Day which was not mentioned on their website. Another couple complained about the very same thing and, through a long ordeal, the manager found a lobster tail for them.
About 10 minutes after we were seated the air conditioning was turned on and got very cold. It was brought to the attention of the waiter and, instead of turning it off, the heat was then turned on and it got real stuffy and hot in a matter of minutes. All in all we would not come back due to how high the prices were compared to everything we experienced. We don't mind paying higher prices for a nice, romantic meal but The Wild Mushroom just did not measure up.
We've been eating at the Wild Mushroom since they opened in Weatherford. In my opinion it was well worth the long drive out to Weatherford. It has honestly been my "go to" Steakhouse and I have bragged on it and carried many friends out there to eat. Unfortunately the move to Fort Worth just hasn't worked for me. This meal was probably the nail in the coffin. Took my sweetie out for an early Valentines Day dinner since we both had to work on VD. The service was horrible. The food was bad. Even after sending it back, it still came out wrong! What a shame...
The man singing in the corner was way too loud. My pork chop was not cooked in the middle but the creme brule was decent
I was really looking forward to eating at the Wild Mushroom. I've read good reviews but was disappointed in our visit. The fried oysters were too salty, the 8 oz filet was bland and didn't have any seasoning, the mashed potatoes were luke warm and even the horseradish I ordered to spice up the filet tasted like sour cream. I will say the best items we ordered were the Brussels sprouts and mac & cheese. I was not very impressed and will not return.
The salad was creative, the soup delicious. Prime filets were excellent and done to order, and the vegetables were tasty and perfectly cooked. However, the wine list is not special, and a wonderful meal begs a fine wine. Also, the so-called 'bernaise' sauce disappointed, as it was a cheesy-type sauce without tarragon.
Nice bar, good drinks. Had dinner at table, service good. Steak over cooked but good taste. Very nice atmosphere. Enjoyed the food too.
The Wild Mushroom is a comfortable, unpretentious place -- with some of the tastiest food you'll ever consume! The lobster bisque was the best I've ever tasted, and the entrees are all beyond compare. The service is impeccable as well. Highly recommended!
The waiter was excellent but the wait for our food was very long. Too much spice on the steak so it took away from the flavor. The Mushroom Bread and Mac & cheese were fantastic. The salad with sweet drops was delicious as well.
Before this restaurant moved to Ft. Worth, I had eaten there a few times in Weatherford. I normally do not eat beef but the best steak I've ever had is the tenderloin that they do. Everything is great - taste - served hot and just great. You can't go wrong. Love it.
Our reservation was for 8:15 but we didn't get seated until 8:45. The waiter failed to mention it was his 2nd night to work which was very noticeable. He was a kind server just not well trained. When we received our food, the wrong sides were delivered without explanation; they merely said sorry but they ran out of the certain sides we ordered and chose to give us the standard mash potatoes and asparagus. When I complained, she asked me what side would I like and I said the spinach, which they charged me for! Many people who were seated were disappointed. If you are going to spend $130 on dinner go somewhere else! The steaks were average or below. I would not return. There was ZERO customer service, no one apologized for anyrthing!
Food and service is nowhere near worth what you pay.
