"Nice upscale restaurant. The food was good; however, nothing really stood out, except the crusty rustic bread, which was exceptional."

"Went here for Winter Restaurant Week. Glad we did. There were 3 selections for a starter, entre and dessert. The waitress kept trying to upsell us on the front or main menu. Must have told her 3 times -we were there for Restaurant week. The main menu is much more pricier. The food was exceptional, very tasty and presented in the right proportion. Nice décor. Since this was the most anticipated restaurant opening this year, I am glad we went -- certainly good enough to go back at full price."

"Plenty of parking in the Stockyards, attentive service, fast delivery of the drink and food order. The meal was good, but not great. The Vaqueros Plate was their signature dish, enchilada, tamale, chili con queso, a beef taco with rice and beans. Solid presentation -- but nothing stuck out as different than any of the others. The margarita was not good-- think it was the mix, as there was minimal lime taste. Oh well. Overall good value for the money and a nice stop in the stockyards."

"The Bird Café, in a historic building in downtown Fort Worth is filled with bird prints, made by twin artists from Fort Worth who copied James Audubon’s style. The service was exceptional with our waitress guiding us through the many small plate selections. Our favorites were “moth balls”, ricotta filled balls, rolled in pasta dough and served with a sauce consisting of fried or dried sage. The Texas quail was seasoned and cooked perfectly and the “pig and fig” were flavorful and satisfying. Extensive wine list with plenty of by the glass options. After dinner, we had a drink on their roof top terrace. A very nice evening, a great date night. Go to the Bird–you know the old 60’s song – before everyone else finds out the Bird is the Word."
