Cabernet Grill Texas Wine Country Restaurant
anniversary highlightMy husband and I are celebrating our ninth anniversary in Fredericksburg. The Cabernet Grill was our first, and by far, our most memorable. The food, drinks, atmosphere, and service were outstanding. We would make the four hour trip just to come back here! !5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and beautiful gardensMy Ribeye was outstanding and my wife enjoyed her steak and coconut shrimp. We enjoyed our 30th anniversary dinner at this great restaurant.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy BirthdayMy husband and I went to Fredricksburg for my birthday and Mother's Day. We had a lovely meal at the restaurant and really enjoyed ourselves.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined outside in the gardenWe dined outside in the garden area. It was very pleasant, just background waterfall sounds - easy conversation. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experience!!We happened upon this gem of a restaurant on the internet and could not have done better! We arrived about 30 minutes prior to our reservation time on the eve of Mother's Day, and the hosting staff was prepared to seat us immediately. We requested a table outside and they were more than happy to accommodate, though they were quite apologetic that we had to wait about 5 minutes for the table to be ready (still 20 minutes prior to our res. time). The waiter, Eric, was excellent, the food was excellent, and the ambiance was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Cabernet Grill to everyone, especially if you're celebrating a special occasion.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCabernet Grill ReviewGood is amazing! One or thé best restaurant I've done.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMQuite a find in FredericksburgThis restaurant was listed at the top of the TripAdvisor list of restaurants in Fredericksburg. We decided to try it thinking it might be touristy. Well, it was anything but. The restaurant sits outside of town by a couple of miles. We ate there on a Wednesday night and it was quiet and not crowded, so we can't vouch for the weekend crowd. We sat outside and it was quite pleasant. The service and the food were terrific, as well as the prices. The grounds inside the entrance were very pretty with waterfalls and cabins. We did peak into the dining room and it was well appointed. But we could see how it could get noisy in there as it is a big open room. We would definitely go back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerCabernet was everything that I expected, great food great service, I will go as far as saying I would just make a special trip just to eat there.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Food was superb and presented nicely. Waiter, Trent, was knowledgable of the menu, pleasant and helpful, and handled the upper level of seven tables alone. We selected The Cabernet Grill from the outstanding reviews listed on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. We will return when we visit Fredericksburg again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughter and I spent aMy daughter and I spent a mother/daughter weekend in Fredericksburg, and tthe Cabernet Grill was recommended by a friend. I am delighted we took her up on the recommendation. Food was excellent - not your standard steak/seafood. Warm goat cheese appetizer melted in your mouth. We both ate a fish entree - both were absolutely phenomenal. Can't wait to bring my husband next time!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHill Country GemExcellent food from appetizers to desert, with the exception of the chicken fried pecan pie (not to many pecans to be found). This is the best food the hill country has to offer. The cajun snapper was perfect and the coconut shrimp and tenderloin was incredible. They have an all Texas wine list. We usually stay away from Texas wines but after sampling a couple of flights we found some notable wines we had never heard of and will look for.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely PlaceThe Cabernet Grill was a lovely place for our anniversary dinner. The Jumbo Lump Crab Gratin was wonderful. I liked that it was only a couple of bites each to leave plenty of room for the main course and dessert. I had the Surf and Turf and the tenderloin was very tender with a delicious sauce. The coconut shrimp were made better than others I've had with a sticky sauce on the shrimp instead of just on the side. My husband had the ribeye, which was good, but nothing exceptional. The fried pecan pie with Jack Daniels ice cream was an great way to end the dinner. They have a great selection of Texas wines and they use many local ingredients. Our server, Trent, was attentive without being intrusive - perfect for a romantic evening.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMstaff are pleasent, food isstaff are pleasent, food is excellent, wine selection is terriffic. i love this place and would come back again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMReviewThis is one of my 3 favorite restaurants. The food was great, but not quite as great as I previously remembered. We had a reservation at 6:30, and tried to change it to 7:30, but we were told that there were none available. When we finished, around 7:30, there were quite a few empty tables available. I found this to be curious.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gem of a restaurant.A real gem of a restaurant. If you visit Fredericksburg you must dine here. Great food, excellent wine list, great service.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem worth the time and money.I've eaten at a lot of different establishments over the 30+ years I've been visiting Fredericksburg, but this is one of the gems in the area. Ambience was very good and food was very good. Service was a little slow as the dining area was packed, but all was still acceptable. One of the features of the grill which I was most impressed with was that they only serve Texas wines. We nabbed a bottle of the Malbec from Stonewall and found it excellent...which was a surprise. This will likely become our favorite special spot as we pilgrimage to Fredericksburg every year to celebrate our anniversary. The cottage rentals seem attractive too and we may end up staying there next year as well.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food at the Cabernet Grill---I continue to enjoy my visits to the Cabernet Grill. Their Texas wine list has led me to discover the true gems we have in the regional wine makers. The crab meat appetizer is simply heavenly. The kitchen realizes the need not to overcook seafood and as a result, every seafood dish is delightful. Meanwhile, on this visit I tried the Chicken Fried Ribeye with Lobster Sauce. While I had some trepidation in ordering it, I quickly realized what a harmonious and scumptious dish it truly was. The addition of new deserts addresses the previously perceived weakness in the menu. I simply look forward to my next visit. Well done!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale menu. The food andUpscale menu. The food and service were excellent. Regrettably, we didn't sample the dessert menu. We'll be back!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMCrazy about CabernetSecond time to stop and eat here. Pricier than most, but well-worth the extra cost. Good
variety of choices in drinks, entrees and desserts. Will definitely be back!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Food, Service, AtmosphereSecond time to visit. First was anniversary trip to Fredericksburg and second was trip to Fredericksburg with my mom. On both occasions the food and service was excellent. My mother ordered chicken and enjoyed it so much she went home and tried to recreate the recipe! The atmosphere fits the tourist expectations of a Texas getaway in the rolling hills wine country. Great job to chef, staff, and management!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably still the best restaurantProbably still the best restaurant in Fredericksburg.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is my new favorite restaurant.It is my new favorite restaurant. The dry rubbed tenderloins are the finest peice of meat I have ever tasted. The seafood is exceptional as well, but I can't get past the tenderloins. The wine list is exceptional with my favorites from the local vineyards.
The service is exceptional.
Over the fireplace is and endcap of a large boiler. It is professionally done and
fits the cotton gin theme. The restaurant is part of the Cotton Gin Village, and they
have some really neat lodging facilites.
I highly recommend this restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in FredericksburgWonderful restaurant with great food and friendly staff. Food is a little upscale and prices also, but in this case worth it. We got to taste some nice Hill Country wines also. Had the crab gratin, sausage soup and pork belly buns for appetizers, all very good. Then the beef kabob and wife had a great fish dish. Finished the meal with two tasty deserts, bread pudding and strawberry shortcake, both delicious. Highly recommended. Don't forget to reserve a table as this place gets pretty crowded. Housed in an old cotton mill. The server we had was very helpful and enthusiastic which also helped create a great dining experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite restaurant inOur favorite restaurant in Fredericksburg!! LOve it!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to go!We had an excellent dinner. I tried to get a reservation for Sunday April 7th and it was booked. I was disappointed in that but got one on Tuesday. The mashed sweet potatoes are out of this world and I would love to know how they are made. The crab stuffed shrimp I had was outstanding. Our waiter, Eric, was prompt and friendly. The only downside was it was a little loud.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnita SniderThis was a special weekend I had planned in advance for my husband's Birthday.

Service was great!!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved dining at the CabernetWe loved dining at the Cabernet Grill, which is just 7 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg. To start, we chose the escargot, which was delicious, and who could resist dipping the bread in the garlic butter? The dry rub tenderloin was fabulous, and cooked to perfection. The service was great, and they have quite a bit of space for outside dining. The desserts were beautiful, but we had to pass, as we had no more room. You can't go wrong at this restaurant.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst class food and serviceFirst class food and service with casual Texas atmosphere.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the best placeThis is one of the best place to eat in Fridericksburg if not the best.

We will be back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA true Hill Country GemI have eaten at restaurants all over the United States and some outside of the US. The food here was amazing! It was creative, full of taste, and possibly under priced for what you get. I cannot wait to go to Cabernet Grill again and bring more people with us.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dining in FredricksburgWe celebrated our 25th anniversary here and also stayed at one of the wonderful cabins on site. Very romantic atmosphere with sounds of waterfalls with low volume music. The outdoor Tiki lights and fire-pit added the extra flare for our evening. I brought our own flowers to have at our table, though I am quite sure the restaurant would have assisted on this if I had asked. I could not have imagined anything more perfect anywhere.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique Hill Country dining!The food and the wine selection were excellent.

We both had the tenderloin tail with stuffed lobster tail, and it was fantastic! A nice selection of Texas wines from which to choose. The chicken-fried pecan pie (yes, that is correct) is extremely decadent, rich, and to die for.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCabernet Grill Texas WineCabernet Grill Texas Wine Country Restaurant is among the best dining experiences I have ever had.
