Diner Reviews
  • "We always bring our visitors to The Grant House. They all enjoyed the food, service and music. We should have arrived earlier to enjoy the guitarist that evening. We think ending the music at 8 was too earlier, maybe 8.30."

  • "The weather was perfect, garden was beautiful, food was delicious. Very relaxing!"

  • "Lovely building, landscaping, ambiance. Food very average, service somewhat dull. We were 3 women at our table, and noticed that the waitress was much more attentive to tables with men. I had ordered tea, their teapot leaked all over the table, I asked for a towel and was treated rudely. I'd possibly go again just for the history, but prefer better food and service."

  • "This is a beautiful setting and the service was great. Pork chop and ravioli dinners were good...not outstanding for the price. Desserts were a real disappointment; the carrot cake was a carrot cupcake cut in half with frosting, fruit crumble just okay. We were there for an early dinner on Thursday evening. The music and bar seemed to be where customers were...the setting goes a long way, but I hope the dishes prove a bit more interesting if we choose to try it again."

  • "This was a delayed anniversary celebration. The food was EXCELLENT (as it has been when we've been there in the past). Interesting dishes, well prepared. I had the smoked chicken with couscous for dinner. Fabulous. And the bread pudding for dessert was to die for. We'll go back again soon, even without a special occasion. I like that the dining areas are fairly small--just 4-5 tables per room, so that the noise level is very low and we could easily hear each other. We ate on the sun porch and watched the sun, then rain, then sun (this is Vancouver, after all)."

  • "I came early for dinner before some Nerium meetings and loved the history of the house and surrounding buildings. It was so beautiful and quaint. The food I got was delicious."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "My first trip to Grant House was this past Thursday because of the live music playing that night. The food was a bit on the spendy side for Vancouver but the fish was fabulous! A real treat! The music was played on the porch and the weather was beautiful so overall the setting was about as good as it could ever be. I really commend them for bringing an artist the caliber of Tom May to sing too. He made the evening a memorable one."

  • "We had a wonder 50th anniversary celebration on June 14th at the Grant House. They allowed our children to decorate with personal touches and bring in a cake from an outside bakery. The wait staff graciously cut and served the cake. The wait staff was outstanding very pleasant and very attentive to all our needs. The food was good but steaks were under cooked for med well. The sliders on the children's menu had too much sauce actually ketchup on the side would have been a better choice. Prices were a little on the high side at that price I would have thought the main course selections would have included soup or salad."

  • "Staff friendly and helpful but a touch short out on the porch at times between 5:30 and 7:30 pm. Wine list good but prices over-inflated---especially by the glass for local wines. The by-the-bottle mark up for commonly found wines was 3 times the market price---a bit too much. Appetizers delicious. Dessert portion scant considering the $8 fee---very "skinny" slice of chocolate cake. Espresso and coffee were luke warm---would have been much more enjoyable IF the beverages were hot."

  • "We love this restaurant as a date night, though we have been there for lunch. The food is great, we love the desserts, it is always quiet enough to really feel like you can really have a good conversation, and when the weather is nice, you can sit outdoors and enjoy the view. The staff is always friendly and attentive, but not too much."

  • "The menu and food were terrific, but the service was above par - we had exceptional service."

  • "I hosted a business dinner at the Grant House and was extremely pleased with the service, food and ambiance provided. I will certainly consider the Grant House for future activities."

  • "The spinach dip and chocolate truffle cake were good. The fish & chips and chicken salad sandwich were bland. The place is charming. Prices are reasonable. The waitress was energetic. She didn't know much about the Grant House, but she brought us a sheet that explained more. We were hoping we'd found a place to bring out-of-town guests. We were disappointed with the entrees."

  • "Enjoyed the historic and romantic ambience, with a nice menu. Good selection of local wines. Have wanted to drive down here from the Tacoma area where we live to dine here for years, and finally did, over a long weekend. Worth the trip!"

  • "Had a fantastic dinner with my beautiful lady. The meal had an excellent presentation and fantastic flavor. I would recommend Grant House to those who want a delicious dinner in a quiet and inviting environment. "

  • "We sat on the outside patio and it was a lovely evening. The live music was great. Service was very slow and they were understaffed. Food was good and a good value for the price. Nice wine list!"

  • "We went to the Grant House for Mother's Day brunch and it could not have been a better experience. The food was fantastic and plentiful."

  • "Just enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch at the Grant House. I made reservations and the table was waiting for us upon arrival. The food and service was amazing. I dined with my son and brother and sister in-law who were visiting me from Wisconsin. Beautiful atmosphere and the four of us had a lovely time together. After brunch we went outside and took pictures. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Our food was good. Our drinks were poor. Whoever the bar tender is needs to taste what they serve. Maybe the bar tender was our server that night. Speaking of servers, ours was abrupt, unfriendly and seemed annoyed we were there. It was decent service but cold. For the cost of our dinner and drinks we expect better and much more friendly service. The balance between them was poor. "

  • "Lovely historic setting with very nice ambience. Great place for a special occasion."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "We had a group of 14 with the facility all to ourselves. It seems that the breakfast numbers were too erratic so they have decided to discontinue breakfast. However, they were honoring our reservation which is why we were the only diners. Everyone really liked the ambience and I heard no complaints concerning the food. Hopefully they will rethink breakfast and include it as a venue again. I think they just need to be better at advertising that breakfast is served! So for now, breakfast is no more and they will be doing occasional special occasion brunches. "

  • "Very relaxing, peaceful setting. Sun was shining so we could enjoy the outdoor patio. Great place to unwind with friends after work. Service is friendly and prompt. Appetizers were good. Calamari could have a bit more kick in the accompanying aoili. "

  • "The food was great, the service was perfect, the outdoor seating was tranquil and scenic. The whole experience was excellent. I highly recommend Grant House to anyone looking for a special dining experience."

  • "Certainly a good restaurant overall. Good food, service, and fine fir conversation. Dimly lit in keeping with the historical backdrop. Would recommend for anyone who enjoys unhurried dining in a well maintained old building."

  • "This was wonderful an so relaxing. Not pressured or pushed. Hard time choosing so shared so we could experience more. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I've been to The Grant House for dinner and Easter brunch. For being a house it had a cozy atmosphere without ever feeling crowded. The food is delicious with options that make it difficult to choose just one. And the staff is always very courteous, helpful and informative regarding the history of the area. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We were anticipating a lovely Easter brunch. The cost was expensive for us but we thought the food would be worth it. The brunch disappointed. There weren't many choices so for $50 I had some scrambled eggs, bacon, a salmon caesar salad and a couple shrimps and a glass of champagne. Not really worth it. I'm glad we went since it was on our list of things we wanted to do, but I won't go back."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "My family had Easter brunch at the Grant House. It was our first time dining there and I will be back. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The quality of food was good, the only downfall was that we had to go up and down the stairs to the buffet. My kids found plenty of things they liked to eat which was nice. I'd love to go back for lunch and eat on their wonderful patio."

  • "A very nice place in the restaurant wasteland of Vancouver (WA). Very nicely prepared piece of salmon served with wild rice cakes and roasted vegetables. The vegetable cassoulet was extremely tasty but was a rather small portion--should have asked for seconds, I guess. The shared winter salad was good and served as a split salad on separate plates. The bread pudding dessert was served in a molded form as opposed to the more normal loosely cake form. A nice place to dine!"

  • "Historical Grant House on Officers Row of Ft. Vancouver is a peaceful and scenic site for dinner or lunch. The food is tasty and well prepared, the service excellent, and the surroundings a step back into Northwest History. Everyone should take the opportunity to soak in the ambience of this local gem convenient to both Vancouver and Portland, OR."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The Grant House is a beautiful restaurant housed in a historic building on Officers' Row adjacent to Fort Vancouver Historic Site. The menu is somewhat small but very well-executed and the service was friendly, solicitous and enthusiastic. Grant House is a great place for a family dinner but would be equally impressive for entertaining on a business lunch or dinner. Beautiful location, good food and great service."

  • "My Fiancé and I went to the Grant House for dinner on Saturday evening. This was our first time dinning at The Grant House and I gotta say that we were both very impressed. We were greeted at the door with warmth and shown to our table. Our waitress introduced herself ( I cant remember her name So Sorry) but she was extremely polite , upbeat and friendly. We ordered our meals and had a few drinks ..The food was delicious and the atmosphere is very warm and inviting. The pricing is a little on the high side , however if you want a great evening with someone special or with friends I would highly recommend The Grant House. Thanks, Impressed"

  • "Five of us had breakfast at the Grant House recently. For several of us it was our first time there. The food was absolutely fantastic and the Illy coffee was wonderful. Fresh ingredients and lots to choose from on the menu. We will definitely be going back to try lunch and maybe dinner. The setting is just so beautiful and we can't wait to try it in summertime since it has such a beautiful outdoor setting too."

  • "Being from Alaska and having the opportunity to feast on salmon cooked perfectly, my husband and I are skeptical when salmon is on a menu, fearing it will be overcooked and dry. We took a chance and both ordered salmon - my husband ordered off the menu and I chose the special. We were pleasantly surprised to find our salmon nicely crusted on the outside and deliciously moist on the inside. We definitely recommend the salmon! We tip our hat to the chef."
