Cabernet Grill Texas Wine Country Restaurant
Cabernet Grill Girls WeekendMy second visit; some of the best escargot ever. Recommended to my girlfriends who are dining veterans and they loved it. Great venue and food is very well done.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways elegantly delightfulThe fine folks at the Cabernet Grill have yet to disappoint us in any way. The food, as usual, was excellent. Korina, our server, was delightful, and made us feel comfortable and welcome. We went early so as to make the 7 pm show at the Rockbox Theater, so we were ahead of the crowd. Consequently, the noise level was almost perfect. We never found anything at the Cabernet Grill deserving criticism, and that is why we keep going back. It is my favorite dining place in Burg of Fred. Yes it is pricey, but here you do get what you pay for.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHill Country CuisineMy husband and I celebrated our 37th anniversary with dinner at Cabernet Grill. Our food was absolutely wonderful and the ambience of the restaurant added so much to our lovely evening.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExperienceGreat food, great service.

Every time we visit this beautiful city we have to eat at the Cabernet Grill. The food is excellent and the service is superb. We had ribeye steaks, mashed potatoes, and the house made chips with bleu cheese fondue. Everything tasted great. We also had the chocolate mousse cake and fried pecan pie for dessert. The servers are attentive and helpful. We had an excellent time and would highly recommend this place!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNice evening outWe enjoyed our dinner at the Cabernet Grill very much! We stayed at the Cotton Gin Village for two nights and treated ourselves to a wonderful dinner complete with a yummy dessert! The crab cake appetizer was tremendous, and the red snapper with lump crab meat entree was fantastic! My husband ordered the surf and turf which was "okay" in his words, but nothing extraordinary. Of course we tried the fried pecan pie with jack daniel's ice cream and that too was very good. All in all, we would highly recommend dining here. The wait staff was also helpful in choosing an entree, giving his recommendations when asked. A few miles outside of Fredericksbury proper, but well worth the short drive!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCabernet Grill in F-burgThis place totally lived up to my expectations! Great food, wonderful service, beautiful grounds....I'll definitely go back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food Great FunHad an enjoyable evening with really good fun, nice atmosphere, and very attentive service. In the Hill Country I didn't expect to find Pork Tenderloin and Red Snapper paired with flavorful veggies and superb dessert choices. I will definitely recommend to anyone going to Fredericksberg.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversary celebration!We enjoyed a lovely dinner on the patio beginning with knowledgeable information about dishes from our server. The house salad was unusual with wontons, rice and a delicious ginger dressing. I enjoyed fried eggplant containing large shrimp in a savory white sauce and my husband had the chicken-fried rib eye, tender and memorable. We have already recommended it to friends!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBeginner snobSix of us dined. Food was very good. The signature soup was awesome - warm, hearty, tasty. The chicken fried steak with lobster topping was very good but the steak was better. Desserts were so-so. The restaurant should suggest wine-food pairings for beginner snobs like me.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe experience was great withThe experience was great with one small problem the second glass of wine never showed up.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMnever disappointsWe have eaten at the Grill every Memorial Day weekend for 6 years.

Will be back again and again!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Hill Country FindThis is a beautiful restaurant with exquisite food. I was caught off guard by the fancy selections (I typically am a plain & dry/vanilla person), but was very pleased at what we were served. I sampled (and loved) all the food we ordered. The outside decor/theme was amazing.
We will be back!
(I would love to book a cottage next time, too!)5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAdded to our great vacationMy girlfriend and I took a vacation for Memorial Day and wanted to do a little of everything, including dine at some of the local restaurants. Cabernet Grill had a great selection of appetizers, salads, and main courses. Regrettably, we didn't have room for dessert, which we will have to try the next time we are in town. But, the grapefruit salad and goat cheese appetizer that we began with, followed by the oh so tender pork loin that I had and the trout my girlfriend had filled us up. Our server, for being in a small town, was terrific. I'm in the service industry and was blown away at Joseph's service. He was extremely helpful, as everything looked great and helped steer us through our wine flight and meal. Definitely a great find.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back!This was our first visit and we enjoyed the whole dining experience. The food was delicious and the presentation was great. We will definitely. Be coming back when we return to Fredericksburg!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Cabernet Grill is consistentlyThe Cabernet Grill is consistently delicious. When there are large groups there the noise level can get pretty high. It just depends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!!Went to FBG this past weekend and can't rave enough on this place. It was amazing. We started with the trio of dips! it was outstanding.
I had the surf n turf with a medium steak that was prepared to excellence. Wife enjoyed the pecan crusted chicken which was too die for.
The Becker Vineyard wine was amongst the best on the list. We would greatly recommend this place to anyone.
Can't wait to return as the service was just as impeccable.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood with friendsWe recently dinned with another couple after touring the wineries. The wine list had many of the wines we enjoyed that day. Cabernet Grill was highly rated on several sites and it stood up to the reviews. Our waiter Joseph was fabulous!!! Based on his recommendations (and online reviews) we had the following- apps- goat cheese and crab cakes, entrees steak kbobs, quail, strip special and shrimp. Everything was fabulous (the kbobs were overlooked to pure medium when ordered med rare). The quail was amazing! The temperature was perfect for outdoor dining.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful atmosphere!I went to Cabernet Grill with my boyfriend when we were in Fredericksburg for the weekend. We sat outside and it was the perfect atmosphere...water features, lights, a cool breeze. The food was delicious as well, so I would highly recommend checking it out!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCabernet Grill DelightWe always enjoy a special dinner at the Cabernet Grill when we visit Fredericksburg and save it for our last night in town to have special memories. Once again, the service was pleasant and efficient, the food was unique and delicious and the ambience reflects the Fredericksburg and Hill Country atmosphere. We were celebrating my husband's birthday this time and they made it special with a great cheesecake and chocolate dessert - YUM!
We will be back5/16/2013 12:00:00 AManniversary 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 AMLobster-topped chicken-friedLobster-topped chicken-fried ribeye steak. I'm not sure you need to say much more!
We really appreciated the all-Texas wine list. When in Rome....
This place has a great feel -- just a nice dining area. I'm having a hard time remembering anything I had other than LOBSTER-TOPPED CHICKEN-FRIED STEAK!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 AMThe food was well presented,The food was well presented, tasty and HOT! Very nice restaurant.. check it out.4/26/2013 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 AM
