The Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room Reviews
FeliCity to go
I love it for the great food and special vibes, not to mention that the place is beautiful.
Considering all those reasons I picked this spot not only to offer dinner for my family and friends in my wedding day, but some of my photos were taken here.
All guests were happy about the food and the service even the ones with dietary restrictions and vegetarian preferences.
Me and my husband received an outstanding customer service from the staff all the time, they made lots of cute details for us, in our special day that we didn’t even consider.
We have been going there every year to celebrate our anniversary, it is always the best of the best here in Lubbock.
It is a fine place that you really have to try if you are living here or if you are visiting Lubbock city.
Here are some of the photos from our wedding that was in 2020!
Thanks Funky door staff!
Love the decor in this place. The evening we dined in, there was a live band. Great music but it was a bit loud so we had a hard time carrying on a conversation and there wasn’t any seating that wasn’t right in front of the stage. The food was good. I really loved the fondue. We ordered the Funky Door and added beef tips. Very good and unique as you cannot find that most places. My mom ordered a salad with chicken. It was good but I felt $27.00 a bit too pricey for a salad.
My son picked this place for his graduation celebration from college. Although it is a bit pricy, we decided to go here because that is what he wanted and it was a special day. The place is very nicely decorated, and it is also 2 story. The staff was friendly but our waiter did not listen to our requests. He did not bring out certain things we asked for. He did not come to our table and ask how our meal was and did not come to our table very many times for refills. They were not crowded at all so there was no excuse for anything. The fondue was delicious, although it was cold and never got hot. The salmon was good, as well as the lobster mac- n- cheese . But the other meals were horrible. The chicken dish that was ordered came out super well done and so dry it could barely be swallowed and it was a little charred as well. We asked for balsamic on the side as well as asked for extra sauce, in which he brought out Tabasco sauce! The chicken breast had also been sliced in half so that it was made into 2 servings. One half on one meal and the other half for the other meal. Super tiny and thin.
The other dish we ordered was fish, which we asked if we could split and he said it would cost extra to split it and that they couldn’t split the fish, only the sides. Lol. SERIOUSLY?!?! The fish dish we ordered was so rubbery that if you picked it up and threw it, it would sill be in one piece . I could barely cut it with a knife! And it was so awful that I couldn’t even eat it.
I did not want to say anything a the table because it was a large group of people and I didn’t want to embarrass my son in front of his girlfriend and best friend. And we had a 9 hour drive to get back home.
So I went to the bathroom and then asked to speak with the manager and told her the situation. She was not compassionate nor sorrowful about the meal and only made excuses for the condition of the food. I told her that they should not even have sent out food in that condition in the first place ! When you pay such a high price for food, it should be served to perfection.
Now I’m sure most of you know that a reputable business would have made it right but she did not offer ANYTHING for our horrible experience. Nothing was deducted from the bill and had to pay full price for horrible quality of food and service.
I would think twice before choosing this place to dine!

This was not the best experience we expected for the price they charged and the expectancy of an upscale restaurant. This was also our first time here so I can’t say if this is something to be expected. Upon arrival our outside reservations were reassigned to indoor as the waitress outside was overloaded. We took the upstairs thinking we can talk amongst each other but it was surprisingly very loud and had to lean in; in hindsight we should have took the downstairs to enjoy the live music as he was very good but hard to hear and non existent from our view point. The food was amazing but arrived over an hour late. Service was kind and although our waiter mentioned he was new, I had to remind for refills, ask for silverware to eat my main entree and requested to another waiter if they could take our wine we had ordered with our main entree off our receipt since it wasn’t given with the meal and we were already half way through our food. I did end up accepting my wine after the waiter apologetically brought it out and I wasn’t quite as done with my food as my husband was. At the end we were greeted by the manager and she discounted our appetizer for the inconvenience.
The worst restaurant experience We’ve had in Lubbock so far. Yet one of the most expensive places in town. We arrived at 8Pm for our reservation. Ordered around 8:20-8:25 for our food after having one drink each. Then my salad arrived at 9:15, the server came up around 9:25 and apologized for the wait. At 9:50 I asked to speak to the manager and she went to the wrong table and went to the table next to us. 20 min later we were ready to leave. The food finally arrived. The steak I ordered RARE arrived over well done!! The place claimed the wait was over running out of steaks and having to go get them from the store . Joke of a manager. Joke of a place. Don’t go!!!
Lamb Lollipops appetizer was absolutely amazing. Proteins were really good. However, everyone’s side dishes were cold… like really really cold, not even close to warm. You could tell the “seasonal vegetables” were just frozen broccoli and cauliflower. $240 + 20% tip for 3 entrées/3 drinks and everyone’s side dishes were cold as ice…. veggies, mashed potatoes, risotto… everything that wasn’t a protein was cold. Our waiter was super nice and treated us great. Still for a “higher end” restaurant cold food is never acceptable. The bathrooms were also pretty disgusting, the men’s bathroom smelled like urine (opened the door and it was immediate) floor was also weirdly sticky.
Good and delicious food Awesome at hosting a big group, service was 101% and at an affordable rate. he was a great Awesome gentleman, kind and fast server. We loved everything here.
Amazing food and drinks. Little slow service but worth it. Recommend the pepper jack fondue
Our daughter graduated from Texas Tech this past weekend. One request she had was that we have a family dinner at The Funky Door. In preparation for the weekend, I made a reservation for 20 back in February. When I called last week to confirm the reservation, I was told they had no record of reservation and that we would need to make other arrangements. I am extremely thankful for Carrie and Tina for honoring our original reservation and allowing our Graduation party to take place. Wonderful service and meal. I would highly recommend and again thanks to all!!
The Funky Door is fantastic!! Everything from the atmosphere, to the service to the food is on point!!! We were on a road trip and it had been a very long day of driving, we were a little hesitant to go because it was a very elegant place and we were not dressed appropriately, however the hostess assured us that we were fine and seated us. The live music was amazing and I could go on for days about how outstanding the food was!! We will definitely eat here again and tell everyone we know about it!!
