We had reservations for 5 at a table outside. It was a wonderful, shaded spot and we could not have been happier with it. Inside seemed a bit crowded so I was definitely pleased that we chose outside. There isn't much as far as nice restaurants in Alpine and we did have a nice dinner here. It was pricey for... More

We have always eaten here on our Alpine trips, but this time was disappointing. Service was slow, bread was hard as a rock, my husbands fish was like a piece of rubber. They did make give him a substitute, but overall, I think they need to take stock of their pricey menu and mediocre food.

Wonderful atmosphere, and the food was good, but the portion sizes are small and my soup was only lukewarm. Lunch was busy and servers were, too, so I just ate it.

For those that have a taste bud that is ready for a difference. The Reata is such a pleasant place for a great meal and drinks.

A little on the pricey side, but the portions are large enough to split between 2 people, which we did. The service from Nicole was excellent. I highly recommend the 14 oz steak or the CFS.

We sat on the outside patio for dinner which was great because of the cool evening, but if I go again I'd like to sit on the inside just to experience the feel of the house and coziness. Very friendly and helpful staff. It was a very busy restaurant so the service is a bit slow at times but it... More

Well, one has to take into account the competing offers. We are in West Texas, after all. This establishment is actually ok, the food is basic and it will not poison you. Quite frankly, some of the dishes were tasty. However, judging from a world scale, it's not up to paar with the world. The good: You can probably not... More

One of several recommendations by a friend, and well worth a side trip (actually two trips, once for lunch and once for dinner). Lunch was quite good, but this review will focus on dinner. Our disparate group from Texas and the West Coast chose Reata as a meeting point for dinner. This cuisine is unpretentious yet well-prepared, with a focus... More

The original Reata Restaurant located in the scenic Davis Mountains of west Texas offers the same fine dining and Legendary Texas Cuisine you can find at the Fort Worth location. Alpine, home to Sul Ross State University is near Texas tourist destination Big Bend National Park and the towns of Marathon, Fort Davis and Lajitas. Alpine is also a short drive from Marfa, Texas renowned both for the mysterious Marfa Lights and Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation.

Reata, named after the legendary ranch in the James Dean classic movie, “Giant”, which was filmed in nearby Marfa, boasts the same high quality Southwestern dining you can find in Fort Worth. This is not food for the faint of heart, from Chicken Fried Steak to Calf Fries or the Pepper Crusted Tenderloin and Cowboy Rib Eye Steak, this is a dining experience not to miss.

Today, Reata Alpine remains a true destination restaurant, attracting loyal diners from miles beyond the charming converted farmhouse where our Legendary Texas Cuisine was born.
