Stout's Trattoria at Grape Creek
Anniversary and wonderful celebration
I will start off with what was good at Stout's, and that was the food. The food was really good. There were really just a few things that this restaurant needs to do to be consider the great restaurant it wants to be: 1) Not be afraid to bring new silverware when clearing plates from the first course of the meal. Having your silverware tossed back on the table with "Keep your utensils" just doesn't instill "High Class Restaurant." 2) Stop pushing the membership so much. We get it. We're even members. The constant reminders (e.g. separate column for the price of items for member verses non-members) is off putting. 3) Having to pay two bills when you leave, food and wine. I realize you are separate entities, but there has got to be a way to provide one bill to the table.
The setting at Stout's Trattoria is lovely, if you happen to snag a window seat. If not, you might as well be at a chain restaurant. The dining room is simply one large open room and as a result the noise level is deafening - the staff knows this and simply state, "Well, everyone here is drinking, go figure!" The food is adequate and prepared nicely, but the menu is limited. The one dessert that was offered included peanut butter, so if you aren't a fan, you're out of luck. The potential is there to make this a really nice destination restaurant, but they aren't there yet.
Really enjoyed it. Looked out on beautiful vineyard. Very friendly staff, and the food and wine were wonderful!
A couple years ago we dined at Trattoria. It was a much classier dining experience. It seems Trattoria has become just another higher priced restaurant. We were disappointed in the ambiance. The food was okay, but did not reflect the cost of the meal. The service was great. The wait-staff was great. Just not sure we will be returning.
Great patio table. Service was uneven but pleasant, kind of normal for the area. Had Caesar salad and pizza which were good. Nice place, good food. Would return again
Good food, good wine, nice atmosphere. Sommelier was very helpful.
Always a nice place to have lunch and wine with friends!
Food was very good. We had the crab cake benedict and the tenderbelly Benedict. Both were good. Service was ok.
Excellent food and service. Very knowledgeable staff regarding wine selection. Be sure and join the wine club. Excellent wine and a 15% discount.
I was so glad to have been able to visit here. It was beautiful and I can’t wait to go back. I will definitely share and recommend my experience with my friends and family.
Nice place! We sat outside and dined for dinner. Pizza was delicious! Only thing we didn’t like was that they didn’t have a bar.
The girls loved the food and restaurant. Was surprised they didn’t do something for a birthday like a dessert but it was a great evening.
Delicious, with a gorgeous view, nice wine, and a friendly staff.
As always, the food and service were on point.
Great place for a bite when wining out in hill country! Tried the Rendevous pizza and it was awesome! Love the wine selection and the service is outstanding!
We had a great time. The pizza was really fresh and very tasty! The wait staff was very friendly, attentive and courteous.
As a self proclaimed foodie I’m picky about where I eat. The food here tops anything. Lobster eggs Benedict. Enough said
Aways a great dining experience. Wine is awesome!
Good food good service as usual
Ate here twice during our recent trip to Fredericksburg and never miss it on our visits there. Food and service are great and we love our Grape Creek wines.
Excellent restaurant, great service. Ivan was our host and helped us to accommodate all of our needs. We will certainly be going back.
We had a wonderful experience at Stout’s Trattoria. We were visiting Fredericksburg for the weekend and became members of Grape Creek the day before so we had a discount on brunch. It was incredible food and the staff was fantastic as well. Will definitely be visiting them again!
It was a delightful day with wonderful food. We all enjoyed the visit very much.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere....

Our waiter Lucas made our experience so much better!
The food was delicious. Service was efficient and professional but not too formal
Always a great place to grab a bite in the hill country ! Wine selection is all of Grapecreek wines!
Pizza is amazing
We brought friends who had never been to Grape Creek or Stout's and everyone enjoyed their meal and the venue. I only gave this a "loud" rating because there was a large table celebrating a birthday right next to us and they were screaming and although it was joyful screaming, it was indeed loud. Our waiter acknowledged it and apologized, although we had not complained. Their wines are quite good. I had the filet which came out undercooked but they made it right within a few minutes and it was quite good. My husband had a salad with shrimp and it was delicious. Our friends split a pizza and enjoyed it. I highly recommend Stout's.
Was only thing on open table so we tried it. The wine was great and so was spinach artichoke bacon dip, but bread was hard. We split a pepperoni pizza and it was more spicy than we like and was quite greasy especially for the price.
It was a great evening with quality service. The staff was amazing and helped my guest pick out wine and delicious items from the menu. Ivan came out and greeted us and had a chat with our guest. We came in for the pizza however were pleasantly surprised by the salads and desserts. The atmosphere is stunning overlooking the vineyard. Great job. We will be back again!
Our food server was ok. However, our wine server WAS EXCELLENT. Straleta (I may have misspelled her name) was a wonderful wine host. Friendly, knowledgeable and all with a twinkle in her eye! We will definitely ask for her again. Her recommendations as to the wine we chose were "dead on". We felt like she truly enjoyed her job! Wonderful food and wonderful wine server.
We went to Stout's Sunday for their brunch after church. It was a lovely afternoon, relaxed, and the food and wine were both excellent. We had the crab cakes Benedict which were delicious, and also the avocado toast which was perfect. The fried potatoes were nice and crispy on the outside and moist and perfectly cooked on the inside. We both had a glass of their Cuvee Blanc and it was perfect with the meal. After brunch, we took out wine outside and enjoyed the wonderful guitar player and the beautiful Sunday afternoon!
Great. Ivan is the best
This place is absolutely amazing. I told our waitress that the food was so good, I almost cried. Service, food, and wine knowledge was impeccable.
The pizza is great! Definitely recommend with a glass of wine!
We had a wonderful dinner at this place. Ashley was an excellent waitress and Morgan was great as our wine steward. The pairing she suggested was perfect. The food was wonderful.
Fabulous! We had pizza and salad and the portions and flavor were amazing! Highly recommend! Definitely use open table to secure a reservation cause this place was poppin!
There was a limited Brunch menu for Sunday. Three of the five items on the specials menu were no longer available which was frustrating. What we did end up with tasted very good but wasn’t the first choice.
Awesome food and ambience! Loved it!! Service was great too! Highly recommend. We went for Sunday Brunch and had the most awesome pizza!!
