    My dining experience was wonderful. The flavor that the chef packs into his dishes was an experience in itself. This place is at the top of my list.

    One of the better meals I have had in Greenville. It's maybe a little more pricey than many of the other options in downtown but well worth it. The menu had interesting and different items. The foie gras appetizer, in particular, was really delicious.

    The food and service at American Grocery was top-notch. They always have execellent wine recommendations from specialized wineries. The night we dined, the dessert was the only part of our dinnier that did not meet our expectations. A specail place.

    We had a terrific experience at American Grocery. We arrived for an early dinner before going to a show at the Peace Center. Our waiter was helpful and friendly. He steered us to a terrific wine. The whole staff pitched in and the service was flawless. The food was fresh and delicious - including amazing desserts. The space is beautiful and comfortable. Highly recommended!

    Overall, a very enjoyable experience. The service was attentive and prompt. The food was excellent and priced reasonably given the high quality. The fried goat cheese starter was a very pleasant surprise - outstanding! The seating near the front window was a bit cramped for the three couples sitting at adjacent tables and for the servers to move in and out. Nonetheless, I would definitely return. I enthusiastically support the restauarant's commitment to using locally grown foods.

    Dined on 2/20/2009
    We have eaten at this restaurant several times and enjoyed the food very much on those prior occasions, but our last dinner had a lamb dish on the menu that was an uninspired stew. It is disappointing that lamb was treated so poorly. Then the evening ended with the waiter, without a word, dropping the check on the table shortly after the dessert was served. Even at the chain restaurants the wait staff are trained to deliver the kind words ''take your time no hurry".

    The food was great and severs were attentive. However I thought it was on the expensive side. I'm basing my remarks on comparison to other Greenville fine restaurants and dining experiences in Big cities.

    We had the pre fix menu on Valentine's day and felt that our overall experience wasn't worth the cost. The food was good and the service was good, but it didn't justify a $260 bill for two. We had the selected wines with our meal and were surprised to find that it consisted of a $35 tasting for 4 selections. Overall, we would say it was a decent but overpriced restaurant.

    We enjoyed our meal (the food was outstanding). The price was a little on the high side compared to other similar restuarants. Seating is very close. We felt like we were sitting on top of the couple next to us. This was our valentines dinner and it wasn't quite as romantic as I had hoped. However, the food was great, one of the best in Greenville.

    This restaurant is my current favorite. American Grocery uses local ingredients from the Carolina's whenever possible. The menu changes to accomodate the freshest ingredients. The service is excellent and accomodating. The servers are very helpful, explaining the dishes and the wine list.

    AGR is quickly becoming my top restaurant in Greenville. I've dined there on several occassions and each expereince has topped the previous one. The constantly updating menus, locally sourced produce and meats, perosnal touch and impeccable service is fabulous. During my last visit, the mushroom potato tart with parsley pesto was divine, the grouper was perfect and the coffee flan sent us over the edge.
