Very sad that this place is closing after all these years
Very sad that this gem of a restaurant will be serving their last meal 7/29. Every entree or app has a wine Pairing. The risotto was amazing!
Too bad it has now closed. One of my favorite spots. Good wine paired with great food.
We love Grapeseed and are so sad it will be closing on July 29th. We will go one last time. We hope owner Jeff Heineman lands at another restaurant soon -- after his hip replacement.
Heard Grapeseed was closing and stopped in for a goodbye meal. Was a regular at Grapeseed the first ten years or so after it opened, but not as much recently. This meal was back up to par with those of the first few years. Tasting menu was delicious, though it would have been nice if the chef/owner would have allowed me to substitute for a food allergy. Will miss Grapeseed.
We're heartbroken that the best restaurant in Bethesda is closing a week from today.
Grapeseed is our favorite restaurant in Bethesda. It's consistently great food, friendly and approachable staff, and general ambience routinely make it our go to restaurant. We'll be heartbroken to see it close at the end of the month.
Perfect in every way. Thanks for a great run!
The food is superb, and the service great. Elias, who has been with the chef, Jeff, for a long time, is one of the most professional and helpful staff we've met at the various restaurants in Bethesda.
I've always enjoyed dinner at Grapeseed. It's been awhile since our last visit but food is still very good. We enjoyed their steak specials. Wine was also discounted so we had one of the best Bourdeaux's I've had in many years - a 2010 St. Emilion.
It is so sad that Grapeseed will be closing the end of July. It's been a wonderful mainstay in Bethesda. Will definitely go back again before the end of the month!
So sorry to see this neighborhood jewel go. Get in now for great deals on wine. The mushroom fricasee was outstanding. We both had steak (hanger and filet). Both were delicious and cooked to our taste. We splurged on wine since it is now 33% off. The Oregon Pino Noir was delicious with the chocolate dessert. We wish the owner the best in whatever life holds next for him.
Grapeseed never disappoints. The menu changes to allow for enough variety to keep it interesting while still providing the signature dishes for which this chef is known. Their pairings make your dining choices effortless.
We arrived expecting a more upscale atmosphere, being located in Bethesda and the fantastic reviews this restaurant has received. But the food was delish and did not disappoint. I ordered the salmon and my partner ordered the filet mignon. The salmon came with brussels sprouts and a sauce that was to die for. The filet was melt-in-your-mouth tender. It was a wonderful experience overall.
The special three-course crab dinner was amazing. The best soft shells we've had in eons. Nice fat high-quality crabs. Not fried but still crispy so you can really taste the shellfish. The crab cake and crab spring roll were Stellar as well.
What a GREAT night at Grapeseed. Elias was an amazing and attentive server who never missed a step or beat. The food was all perfectly prepared for a party of 10! Truly a fantastic evening.
really excellent food. great service and not noisy! A+++
We have been going to Grapeseed periodically for years. The food is always very good. The menu is interesting. There are alway interesting weekend menus. The wine list is great, varied and reasonably priced. There are interesting wine pairing suggestions with each menu item. We always wonder why we don't go there more often. It is easily one of the best restaurants in Bethesda right now.
We were a bit skeptical when we entered as the restaurant was completely empty save one table, but our waiter was incredibly warm and welcoming from the instant we entered. They are known for having an extensive wine list, and it did not disappoint. We ended up having an excellent bottle of Trocken, probably about half the appetizers on the menu and some really wonderful softshell crab. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, the food was great, and we plan to be back soon.
On a recommendation I ordered the cornmeal crusted oysters and they were so chewy I was very disappointed. We decided to end our stay after the appetizers
Going away luncheon
