Not as good as expected. I expected attention to detail. When I order dressing on the side and sauce on the side, it should not be hard to accomplish.
Food was good but not great. Everything felt like it lacked salt.

Outstanding food and service supported by a spectacular wine list with notably fair markups. Not that Ft. Worth has little to offer but Ellerbe would compete and thrive in any major food city in the U.S. Very much looking forward to a return visit. Only hope they have a bottle of the Red Burgundy we inhaled remaining!

Our server was wonderful and conveyed the uniqueness of this restaurant and the family owned business well. We enjoyed our experience eating there, but due to the price will keep this is a special date night location, not every day eating. The quality of food was excellent and I am looking forward to going back to see how their menu changes with the seasons according to their farm to table philosophy.

We went for a special dinner and that is exactly what we got. Our only mistake was that we chose to be seated in the garden room, which is pretty but louder than we would have liked for the conversation we were having. The food was as good as ever and the server was very attentive. It's not a place we can afford to go often, but it's always worth it.

We went during a set menus night which was just ok. (Taste of Bangkok). Our waiter was not good. Unapproachable to ask questions... half way through the service I couldn’t even make eye contact because I was afraid to ask questions or recommendations. I would not recommend this restaurant, or be back because there are several other great restaurants that make you feel welcome for the money I spent ($170 including tip for two)

We just tried Ellerbe over the weekend for my birthday. We love there Fort Worth fine dining scene and have been meaning to try this place for a long time. We finally made it and unfortunately were super unimpressed. We went not knowing it was restaurant week so they had two menus. I ended up ordering off the restaurant week menu. My meal was so bland it was disappointing. My husbands meal tasted great but by the time we returned home he was violently ill for several hours. The service was great but sadly it missed the mark on the fine dining list for us.

Excellent food, service and wine list (Puligny Montrachet by the glass!) However the only issue which I consider a large negative was the acoustics - Very noisy and nothing was done by the owner to mitigate sound reverberation - the front room is all glass, concrete and metal - no texture, fabric or sound baffles anywhere - a big oversight these days in design, especially from someone capable of doing such a fine job with the food...

This was our first experience at Ellerbe Fine Foods. My wife and I went on NYE. While they had a set menu that night, our hopes were high as they touted the offerings as New Orleans type food. My wife opted for the shrimp salad while I had the gumbo. The gumbo was decent but really lacked the traditional spices found in good gumbo. Unfortunately, the shrimp salad was not good. The shrimp were rubbery. For the main course, we had the steak with potatoes and my wife had the addition of shrimp and crab meat to her steak. My steak was decent, but the steak my wife had was almost half fat. And the shrimp again were rubbery. Very disappointing. The upside to the menu were the beignets for dessert and the wine pairing. Given the price of the meal, our expectations were much higher. Our expectations were not met.

Ellerbee's is my favorite. Been going since they opened. I guess they were having an off night. The wine had turned, which they gladly replaced. Main course 1-10 was a 15!! so delicious. We ordered 2 desserts . The bread pudding....my all time favorite and always perfect was inedible . The crust on the coconut dessert was too tough to cut. They comped the bread pudding. It certainly won't keep me from going back....love that spot!!

This is not a review to entice you away from eating at Ellerbes, just a heads up. The food is fresh and the service is awesome. However, be prepared for a very small selection of dishes (and it is meant to be that way because it’s farm to table) as well as small portions. There is no house wine, you will need to choose from a list or get recommendations from the server - so come knowing your wines. I wasn’t overly impressed with the offerings the day we had lunch, and it was definitely not worth the $74 we paid to eat one appetizer, one lunch entree and 2 glasses of wine. But YMMV.

Ellerbee’s has a superb varied and delicious dinner menu. Scott was knowledgeable of the menu, attentive to the table without hovering, and personable. We were early on a quiet evening. No noise.
