The poor boy had two overcooked shrimp that scrapped the top of my mouth. One of our guests had to wait for her food while everyone else had almost finished. Too many ingredients for each dish. The burger was one sloppy mess. I will never return or recommend.

Unique setting that was laid back, yet hip and allowed conversation without too much noise. Waiter was attentive, non intrusive, and made dining a pleasure. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and first experience at Grayze. Will definitely be back!

Food was great! I had the torta and my friend had the hipster. We both shared to Mac al pastor although it’s not anywhere near close to traditional al pastor. The ambiance was cozy. I would like to see less California wine and some old world French wines on the menu. It was hard for me to make a selection on the wines given that there was little variation in the regions of which they came from. Other than that everything was fantastic!

The food was very tasty. There were 4 of us and we all got different items. Between us this is what we ordered- Fish, hamburger, salad and appetizer (as a meal). Everyone enjoyed their entrée. The alcohol drinks we also very good. Prompt service. Love the little house turned into a gem!

My girlfriend and I went to Grayze for their Valentines Day special/set menu.

The menu was very well executed and we enjoyed everything that we got. We both left very satisfied with our meal and even had leftovers to take with us.

Overall, I enjoyed the experience at Grayze. Food was excellent, service was attentive and I have no complaints with their inside dining room.
Grayze makes my list of places I would go back to eat at again (a very competitive list with all the restaurant options in San Antonio). Next time I would like to be there when the weather is better and enjoy the outdoor eating space that they have.

The outside patio was fabulous. Sadly, the menu left a lot to be desired and there was a 30-minute wait between every course with dessert taking 40 minutes after we finished our entrees. Whomp whomp - didn't leave a lot of time for after-dinner events.

Overpriced, lacking in flavor. They wouldn’t honor the Restaurant Week Sunday Brunch price of $25 on their menu with the Grayze letterhead on the Culinaria website, when we got there it was $35.

The website is very misleading. I chose Grayze because it states on their website “We have created most dishes so they can be vegetarian, gluten free and vegan because we believe in catering to every guest’s needs.” Turns out, our server didn’t really grasp the understanding of vegan needs. And, their idea of “most dishes” being able to be changed for these particular diets, was no more than omitting 75% of the ingredients of each dish.

Please reword your website. I felt like such a burden and was very disappointed I couldn’t eat “most things” on the menu without completing destroying the dish of all its flavor.

Having had many meals at Grayze in the past, my Restaurant Week experience was up to the high standards I associate with their food. The four-course menu offered two to four choices for each course, and I cannot recommend the Brussels and Fried Bread salad, Mussels and Andouille sausage over grits, Rainbow trout entree with grilled asparagus, lemony pilaf, and garlic aioli, and the decadent butterscotch and white chocolate bread pudding more enthusiastically!

The food was interesting. We went at 5 on Friday evening. It was not busy at all and the noise volume was controlled. The prices are steep for happy hour. Overall the food was are was good and tasteful. The green bean tempura fries were awful — full of grease and the batter didn’t stay on. Sliders had a rich flavor. I’d go back but not on the reg. No designated parking - so you have to park on the street. If you know the area that street is highly traveled but buses, work vehicles and commuters.

This is the second time I’ve dined here where only one server was scheduled to handle all the tables and the remainder of the staff stand around appearing to have nothing to do. No attempt, that we witnessed, was made by anyone else to assist our server.

Our drinks (cocktails) sat at the bar while a bartender and what appeared to be a manager just stood there watching our server maintain all other tables.

Food was delicious, however, which is what brought me back a 2nd time after experiencing the exact same thing previously. Unfortunate management isn’t paying attention to scheduling or teaching their staff the skill of multitasking.

Friendly staff. Good service. Over-salted food. We had appetizers, salads and entrees. The lighting in the restaurant was so bright and spot lit that it was difficult to look up while speaking with the waitstaff. This was after we had asked for the lighting to be dimmed. Made for awkward evening meal being under the lights like that.

I would give this restaurant 10 stars if I could! I look my dad to Grayze this weekend for a Father/Daughter date. Everything from the atmosphere, menu options, the food, and to the service was incredible! The atmosphere was casual & relaxed. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a smile! Statan was our waiter.....and let me tell you- He was amazing!!! We never once had to ask for our waters to be refilled, he gave great menu recommendations, and he was always great at communicating when our food would be out.

We started with the Mac Pastor and the giant grab cake as our appetizers. The Mac was flavorful & the pork carnitas were tender! YUMMY & definitely a must try!
My dad got the Mexican Turkey Torta and substituted the buns out for lettuce. (Statan was very accommodating for the subsitutions).
My dad loved it! Not greasy, flavorful, and it still tasted great w/o the bun!
I had the plethora!!!! Great option for a chilly day! I added Mahi-Mahi and avacado.... to die for and I still had leftovers for the next day! The portions are a great size for the price!

All in all, I highly recommend this place! Perfect for a casual date night, work lunch spot, or just a quick bite in the neighborhood! See you soon Grayze! :-)
