Lonesome Dove is unique in Fort Worth for several reasons. First, the variety of the entrees is unlike any other re3staurant in Fort Worth. Tim Love has created a western cuisine with very sophisticated touches (seasonings, sides, etc.) and I have never been disappointed in the quality of the combinations. He has actually morphed a traditional Texas steakhouse and a... More

Great food and service. The wild game appetizers and entrees are unique and very good. Steaks are cooked to perfection

I have been here three times now and they always surprise me with their excellent food and hospitality. If you are in for a great dinner and like to enjoy all kinds of food, this is the right place. Here you will experience the “real” Texas hospitality while sitting in a “country style” restaurant and enjoying “perfectly balanced” dishes.

This is by far one of THE BEST PLACES in Ft Worth. The menu is fun and different, super fancy meat and potatoes. I absolutely love it...haha. Chef Love has some great spots to try out and this is definitely one of them. The tomahawk is the perfect meal to impress your date!

I visited with a friend who loves fine dining as much as me. It wasn't a special occasion, just good food with a good friend. It was expensive but well worth it!

Working on assignment in Ft Worth, I've driven past this restaurant everyday for 9 months. Finally made the reservation and away we go. For appetizer you have to try the rattlesnake sausage and the wild boar ribs, for a main I had the buffalo ribeye which was good but very lean so the minimum 14oz portion was too much. Try... More

The Lonesome Dove is an exceptional place to dine--especially for couples but not only for couples. The menu provides many choices of exotic foods (bison, venison, etc) and the service is equally good. I recommend you call for reservations.

Return visit just as great as the first time. Wonderful service. Ambiance is relaxed and warm without resorting to slouchy. It's clearly a high-end dining experience. But you feel welcome and intimate. Steaks were great, no surprise there. Expertly cooked, not all chefs can get that right. But 2 things really caught us: the fried spinach side was wonderfully salty... More

My husband and I eat here every year for our anniversary. We talk about going to a different restaurant, but we don't want to miss our annual Lonesome Dove outing! We like trying the new, different things on the menu and we're never disappointed. The service, food and atmosphere are all top notch.

We enjoy beef. But even more, we enjoy places that elevate beef with bunches of other wonderful ingredients. Dinner menu was full of wonderful surprises and creativity. Every course -- even dessert -- was served promptly, with graciousness and absolutely delicious flavors. Didn't realize that the evening of our dinner coincided with TCU commencement. Despite the restaurant's popularity with grads... More
