We were pleasantly surprised when we heard about Bonnell's and visited the first time. When my husband and I want a nice dinner out, this is one of our top picks, even though it's on the west side of Ft. Worth. I recently also took my parents who were also impressed with the dinner, atmosphere and service. The bar is... More

Had little taste, lots of gristle and a tail of... More

Great food, superior service, and wonderful ambience. The wild game is outstanding. I've been to the restaurant a dozen times and have never been disappointed. They have a terrific private room that is perfect for business dinners.

Bonnell’s is a westside standard in Fort Worth. The owner and chef Jon Bonnell is one of the more popular and respected chefs in Texas. His restaurants are first class operations, and Bonnell’s is the flagship and show place. It is also the kind of place requiring a good credit limit on the credit card. Still, if one can afford...

Try the penne pasta with quail, mushrooms, and truffles, amazing! Pecan crusted red fish, wagu steaks, elk mini tacos! All good. They have buffalo, lamb as well. Top it off with the Margarita Key lime dessert or chocolate amaretto cake with cherries. Great experience!

Near blissful mouth watering perfection. Every entree accelerates your tastebuds to an near orgasmic level. Perfect blend of seasonings and spices with a little kick. Very creative menu items and the service is top tier. Highly highly recommend this place

After visiting the Kimbell Museum we decided to eat at this restaurant. I'm a mussels fan, so we split an order that was superb. Menu changes seasonally, but I can assure you everything is wonderful.

The elk tacos are our favorite! You're going to find fabulous steaks on the menu as well as game that will remind you that you're in Texas. There is a full bar and the wine collection will dazzle any wine snob in your party. Save room for dessert!

Back a couple years when we ate there the first time the menu was bright and fun. Now it's a couple steaks, a couple fish, and a couple game items. The building lights have a strange hew to them that makes seeing when you get inside hard at first. Nice bar selection with some high end choices, wine list is... More
