    My wife and I have made Cabernet Grill our priority dining spot on our trips to Fredericksburg. There is nothing better than visiting a couple wineries in the afternoon and then culminating with such a delicious meal at night. The chicken fried ribeye is brilliant!

    My wife and I chose the Cabernet Grill for our fine dining experience while attending an event in Fredericksburg. Upon arrival, we were promptly greeted and seated in a nice, quiet section of the dining room. Our waitress Marcelle was most helpful in assisting my wife with her appetizer and entrée selections. She also recommended a very nice wine to go with our meal. My wife had the filet mignon, which was wrapped in bacon (not listed on the menu as such), and I had the tenderloin kabobs, which exceeded my expectations. The portions were more than adequate, and we ended up bringing a box home. At no time did we feel rushed to complete a course, and Marcelle afforded us the absolute best service a couple could wish for. Highly recommended!

    In short it was amazing !!! Meats were all cooked to the right temperature. The Texas wine list is very surprising. That little Port from Pedernales winery was truly exceptional. Well done. We will be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/1/2013
    We ate here on a last minute whim on a busy weekend. The restaraunt had quite a few normal seats open but seemed intent on filling the tables with bolt upright, thinly padded benches against an upstairs wall. Service was only fair, due in no small part I suspect to inexperience. Likeable chap but I tire of reminding folks of requests the third time. OK so I got that off my chest, the bright spot was the food, which is what we went out for after all. Steak was tender and cooked as requested, all the food arrived hot, the maple sweet potatoes were excellent. All in, and given the locus, it was not bad and we would give them another try, as long as they save the bench seats for someone else.

    Took my wife to Fredericksburg for a birthday weekend and found this spot. Great dinner and fried pecan pie. Server was good, but seemed a little overwhelmed by tables. Definitely worth going to for a special occasion.

    I've been to most of the nice restaurants in the area, and the Cabernet Grill is outstanding. Be sure to give their daily specials a try; I've never been disappointed. Their patio seating, if you can get it, is lovely when the weather is not too hot.

    We had out of town guests and wanted to give them to experience this restaurant. I especially appreciated being able to make reservations. I was surprised I was able to make reservations on a Labor Day holiday. We live 45 miles from Fredericksburg and we would have been so disappointed to have driven to your restaurant and not being able to be seated. My husband also enjoyed the Martini . Our guests loved the dining experience! Thank you

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 8/29/2013
    Food was excellent and dishes were executed well, but this is not a five star restaurant. Food came out so fast I almost wondered if it might be pre-cooked but it certainly didn't taste like it. Desserts are a sugary bliss. Our waitress was very warm and friendly. Nice surroundings with the Texas hokeyness under control (I'm from Texas so I'm allowed to say that). It was too hot to eat outside but the outside dining area seemed very charming.

    Enjoyed our third dining experience here on August 24. They had a full house and we were glad we had a reservation because they were turning away walk-ins. This has become our must-do restaurant on Hill Country visits! From appetizer to dessert, food is wonderful. The wine flights are a great way to sample local vintages. And service is excellent, even at their busiest. Waitress Marcelle's recommendations were spot on. Thanks for another awesome meal!

    Excellent evening with good food and service. The only negative comment that I might make would be that there was a fairly significant time delay between the time when the first three entree's were brought to our table and when the last three were brought out. Other than that, it was a wonderful dining experience.

    The kitchen accomodated my no sugar/no carb request. They left off the sauce on the Beef Kabobs and gave me a double order of green beans. My husband enjoyed the Tejas Mixed Grill and the "Smashed" Apple Pie. We arrived at 5:00 pm and enjoyed the quiet of the restaurant and the ambiance of the dining room. Our server, Johnny, was excellent in every way. He was knowledgeable and helpful with my order to accomodate my eating preferences. We have told our friends about this restaurant and will certainly be back again. We were able to eat and get to a performance at the Rockbox on time for a 7:00 curtain.

    Went here for our 20th wedding anniversary and it was a great fit for our perfect day. The atmosphere is very quiet and relaxing. The staff is very attentive but not overbearing. All the foods we ate were outstanding, from the goat cheese appetizer to the quail, steak, and pork. Definitely better food and atmosphere than most upscale big city notable restaurants. We can't wait to return and dine here again!

    went here to celebrate my wife's birthday, it is a bit off main st in Fredricksburg but well worth it the food was great the service was great., we were originally set for reservations at 7:00 but they were able to get us in earlier with no issue and no fuss.,and if you are in to the local wines they offer several local wine selections and some not so local wine selections ., would recommend this to anyone weather they are celebrating a special occasion or just a night out or just dont want to cook , the price is a little more then your normal establishment but it is well worth it for this is not your normal establishment , and if you plan on staying in the area would look into the cabins they have to offer for rent

    We dine at Cabernet Grill 4-5 times/year. The menu is varied, with a wide range of appetizers and entrees. Almost all are very good, and several are excellent. Their escargot is terrific, the stuffed trout special, and they do a superb job with wild game. The atmosphere is rustic/elegant, and it is a white tablecloth dining experience. On our most recent experience we had a young waiter with a great personality, but once the food was delivered he became less attentive, so getting water glasses and the bread basket refilled required some effort. They have a full bar and and feature some of the best of Texas wines. One caution: They are popular with both locals and visitors, so be sure to reserve well in advance, even if you're just a couple.

    I ventured out to the Lobster covered chicken fried rib eye this time and found it to be good but I always love the Filet Wish the tenderloin tails were still sold separately without having to order with the turf. My partner had the sesame fried shrimp which he commented was excellent. We shall return as usual. Probably next week when another part of the family visits

    We celebrated our honeymoon 5 yrs ago in Fredericksburg. We went back to celebrate our anniversary there this year. We visited several restaurants that we had been to during our honeymoon & NOT one restaurant was as good as we'd remembered. But, The Cabernet Gill was just as delicious, if not more so than the first time we were there. When we know people planning trips to Fredericksburg we ALWAYS recommend The Cabernet Grill. Hands down this is one of the top 5 restaurants we have ever been to. We travel lots & this restaurants food is not the only great thing about The Cabernet Grill, but the staff &!servers are fantastic. The restaurant is nestled in The Cotton Gin which only adds to the romantic atmosphere. We definitely will go back.

We started with the crab gratin appetizer and finished with the smashed apple pie and bread pudding. The combination of euro-infused Cajun is flawless. Everything was beyond exquisite!

    Went to Fredericksburg for a weekend away and stumbled upon this place. My husband and I are all about trying new places and man are we glad we found this place. We sat outside by the water features, and had a bottle of wine recommended by our server Korina. The food was delicious. We had the ribeye and the Cajun smoked salmon. Korina was extremely knowledgable of the area and wine list. This restaurant is what fine dining is all about. Definitely a place we will visit again and again!

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary there. The food was terrific! The chef took basic ingredients you'd expect at a grill (steak, pork, poultry) and prepared them in a uniquely delicious way. We had the lump crab meat au gratin for an appetizer and wiped the plate. The fried shrimp with sesame seed breading with mango chutney mayo and a terrific coleslaw made from shredded carrots and red cabbage in a tangy sauce was simply delicious. My husband had a medallion of pork and beef and a stuffed quail which were all tasty. His was accompanied by sweet potato mash which has a nice kick to it. The desserts all looked delicious and the apple pie compote topped with salted carmel ice cream and fresh berries was. The coffee and service was meh.

    My husband and I went as an anniversary dinner, and were very let down all around. The service wasn't the best and we never got a refill on water. The food was decent, but for the price it was really hard to justify the food. WE were really let down by this restaurant. The redeeming quality would be the buffalo enchiladas which were really good, but we didn't even stay for desert.

    Great food!!! At our table we each had different dishes so that we could try a variety. Escargot for appetizer, then there was a wonderful steak, coconut shrimp and stuffed shrimp. The side dish of grits was perfect compliment to all dishes. We found the overall experience to be refined and relaxed. Perfect for upscale dinning in the hill country. Will suggest to all our friends planning a trip to Fredericksburg.
