About Us

Quaint, charming, one-of-a-kind. That’s how many describe our small, brick, A-frame restaurant at the top of West Seventh Street overlooking downtown Fort Worth. When it comes to food, we also strive to be one-of-a kind. Owner Bernard Tronche opened Saint-Emilion on this property in 1985, five years after moving to Texas from his native France.

Our cuisine is best characterized as classic French with regional influences from southwest France and Provence. We specialize in prime beef, duck, lamb and fresh seafood. We believe Saint-Emilion offers one of the most extensive wine lists in the region with more than 200 labels. Explore our selections on the WINES page.

Saint-Emilion takes its name from the centuries-old village of Saint-Emilion in southwestern France located near Libourne where Tronche grew up. The Romans planted vines in what was to become Saint-Emilion as early as the 2nd Century AD. Today, Saint-Emilion is one of the principal red wine areas of the Bordeaux region and is renowned for a large number of Grands Cru classified wines.
