Reatta is one of my favorites but we don't eat there that often...
Daddy Jack's we go to quite a bit--it is good--reasonably priced--
Uno, Ferre, and Taverna we have eaten at quite a few times--Taverna/Ferre defintely more upscale--I did not like Uno's really much at all
PF Chang's of course is a chain but the food at downtown is consistently well-prepared but the service can vary--sometimes I find the wait staff really snooty

Cowtown Diner we ate at couple of times--ok--tea was good--busy place at lunch and noisy--

8.0 has pretty good food for someplace most people go to for drinks and music

Razoo's -- chain restaurnt--loud--most everything is fried--

Mi Cocina--tex-mex with a twist--lots of different sauces for the dishes you can pick/choose--I don't care for their hot sauce and last few times we were there the chips were kind of stale--but it has a large menu and has an upscale look to it

My hsuband eats at Zippy's a lot for lunch and he likes it--unpretentious and small--gets crowded easy at lunch

Cantina Laredo is chain==this location is nice looking--food is ok--

have not been to the Chop House or Pirana but both are supposed to be good

one of the best places to eat in Sundance is Petroleum Club which is private--

Riscky's does BBQ but on Fridays they do fried catfish and my husband says it is really good--have not been down to try that...

north of Sundance they have the Brazilian type restaurant--Texas de Brazil
and there are some great restaurants in the Stockyards'

new restaurant we have not eaten at called Grace that is at 777 Main st which is past the Bass so it is technically not in Sundance--has what is called "wine me, dine me" menu for fixed price that gets positive comments

also have Del Frisco's steak house in south part of downtown
and Ruth Chris's--
lots of good food technically not in Sundance--

I have a client on Sundance Square; we eat a Reatta's. Its cowboy cuisine; a bit pricey but great. Love it. Also Riscky's is great for casual. I thought I read it was closing but can't remember for sure.

Billy Miner's is the one closing--
and Reatta does not serve "cowboy" fare like chuckwagon beans and biscuits
it has upscale, creative Southwestern cuisine--
the original chef Grady Spears is pretty well known and the ones that came after him are not Burger Chef material...

Thumbs up Reata calls its food "Cowboy Cuisine"

I've been eating a Reata since it opened. Very good "southwestern" cooking which, in the restaurant they tell you is cowboy cuisine. I just googled Reata and look at all the references to cowboy cuisine....which is fine dining....not chuckwagon.

I've been to the Chop house and it's good! I liked their service and food was fresh and well prepared. Very tasty.

I've also been to UNO and I've had better pizza at BJs, Boston's or others... even at other UNO pizzerias!

did not mean to offend
I just did not want the OP to think that Reatta's was some lame Traildust type of place...
Reatta itself does place lot of emphasis on its Southwestern heritage with food and decor playing up the cowboy theme...but the food is anything but "chow"...

Taverna is pretty solid all around--ambiance, food, etc.

If you're beer enthusiasts don't miss the Flying Saucer. You can build a "flight" (5, 5 ounce beers) and learn a lot about different types of ales and lagers.

Reata is my VERY favorite restaurant in downtown FW! We love their food, and their rooftop bar is just amazing! We eat at the downtown location a couple of times a year, and I always enjoy at least one dinner at Reata at the Rodeo during Stock Show.

If you are looking for something romantic and you have 2 hours or so, try Simply Fondue. It's right down the street from Bass Hall (in the basement) and is very good. Even if you just go for the dessert or cheese fondues, you will not be dissappointed!
