Was looking forward to restaurant week since I had been there for brunch back in the spring.
We started with the shrimp tostadas which were a tangy mess, didn't see any shrimp. We both had
the Mahi Mahi for entree, overcooked and way too salty. We both could not eat it. Such a disappointment. We will not be returning.

It was restaurant week here in San Antonio with a prefixed menu but one of our party wanted to order from menu and they accommodated. Maui was cooked to perfection. The crab fritter was delish

We very much enjoyed Grayze, the food was delish and the service was fabulous. We had our dog with us, and sat outside, which was fine even though it was quite warm out. Highly recommend!

Our first visit.
Won’t be returning unless it’s to try something other than the salads the whole party of 4 tried.
Not much flavor to any of them. The chicken salad had a consistency of oatmeal. Very weird.
Staff was friendly and all but that’s not why we came.

Great service and menu choices. I’ve been there before and enjoyed my meal. All our food was way too salty this time around. I are half my plate and my friend only had a few bites. Please tell the chef that excessive salt is not a good thing.

We walked out. The place has a genuine D-bag feel to it. Don’t bother with any place on Grayson that’s east of broadway. They’re all overrun with shallow hipsters who recently escaped Austin.

Love love love coming to this place. Love the hours, love the service, and most of all the food keeps me coming back. We ordered the yellow candied beet and goat cheese salad. Sounds simple but it was literally plate lick-worthy. A it big but nice for 2 people to share as an app or to add a protein to it for an entrée. I really do appreciate the gluten free breads that they offer in house to be able to order things like eggs benedict or sandwiches. It is not a dry-styrofoamy bread like Udi's and it made the avocado
hollandaise great to dip into. The Scotch boozy breakfast drink "Archibald" didn't have much of a presentation nor taste but the Hendricks mule-jito and the Aperol cocktail made up for it with color and taste 10-fold. Keep up the taste-bud creativity!

We went to Grayze for the Culinaria SA Tasty Tuesday program. The waiter did not know anything about it. After he left to check on it he came back told us the menu and it was not really something that interested us. We ordered an antipasto/charcuterie plate and two salads. They brought out the antipasto and then 5 minutes later the salads. One of my pet peeves.

The restaurant was loud so loud that we could not hear our waiter with asking him to repeat and I could not carry on a conversation with my wife.

The food was good but I think we just had a dud for a waiter. I would not return.

We really enjoyed our Father’s Day brunch at Grayze. We started with delicious cocktails. Then we had beet salad, which was unique and good, along with sweet potato fries and biscuits and sausage. Then we had entrees, including sausage hash, chicken and waffles, and a type of eggs Benedict. All were good. Thank you.

Awesome spot! We really enjoyed our Brunch. Just a warning, we had to move from the outside back patio to inside due to the bugs. We both got a ton of bug bites within the first few minutes of sitting down outside. Other than that, things were great. I'd definitely go back if I was in town again.

The eclectic Saturday brunch menu is intriguing. I wish they had a sampler plate because of the assortment of entrees. I had the Elvis Banana Bread. It was an explosion of flavor. My son and husband had the fries with green Chile sauce which had carnitas and the red sauce with smoked brisket. The coffee is strong - too be expected at a brunch that has a full bar at 9:00 AM. The coffee was very good with a distinctive bold flavor.

The negative of the restaurant is there were lots of fruit flies and mosquitos (atypical of what you see in a restaurant) in the restrooms. Glad I’d already eaten because it is a turn off.

Otherwise, cool place with very good food.

Food was amazing! Drinks were on point. Employees were attentive and friendly. They need to figure out a way to cool the building down. I know the kitchen is connected but there was no airflow and I was sweating as I ate.

The food was fab!!! The AC is not cooling the place. Unfortunately, we had a.very loud, obnoxious table of 6 close by that caused us to yell across the table to whole evening. Service was A plus! Owner came by, apologized for the load group, comped our apps. Very nice gesture!!!!

This place was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and creative. It was so hard to pick what to eat, everything on the menu was tempting. The drinks were refreshing and strong. The Hendricks mule-jito and the Paddington were delicious.

Disappointing. Lots of gnats and flies pestering us at our table inside. Over cooked burger. My wife’s salad looked awful and she decided not to eat much of it. Waste of an opportunity for a nice meal with my wife.
