    The place was beautiful and the atmosphere was very nice. The service was on point and we were treated to a view of the meal preparations. Cocktails were outstanding. The dish I ordered was short on the meat in the dish but very good. Recommended and will return. The Bone Marrow starter was excellent.

    Same deal as the other time we ate there. You can see the kitchen and the angry chef. The two seater tables on the side near the window have chairs 2 far apart so that you can't hear each other, the staff and wait staff seem a bit lost, the food was very good. This time we made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner. We kept calling to see what the menu was--for almost 2 weeks and no one would return our call. We wanted to know how they were doing Thanksgiving dinner so that, if it wasn't enough like turkey, we could go else. They finally got the menu straight a couple of days before. Since it was probably the only open restaurant downtown, they could have had a big crowd. But it wasn't because who would go to a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner that doesn't say anything about it on the website, etc. Yet the food was good.

    While in Charlottesville for an alumni event at UVA, I was excited to try this venue and support what looked like an experience that would rival some of the loveliest restaurants where I live in NYC. OMG was I wrong. It's beautiful inside, but unless you are up for the slowest service and the most underwhelming food ever, avoid the Pink Grouse. My date and I waited 45 minutes for our drink order and sat with empty water glasses for the most of that time. We almost walked out. Although the waitress blamed the bartender for epically slow service, that didn't explain how long it took for our food to come. When it did, it was the most average fair I've had in a while. I never leave reviews like this, but I also have never had such a terrible experience - even the tables next to us were complaining and they got their drinks and food before we did. To add insult to injury, everything is priced so high, it makes the disappointment even more infuriating.

    Do not come here if you have to be somewhere after. Everything was so slow. It took 45 minutes to get my cocktail and a glass of water to start and then everything else was just as slow. The waitstaff were very nice and seemed on top of things so I don’t know if it’s the kitchen or bar or what that’s so slow but everything took forever and then the food was lukewarm after they said they had to re-fire it due to overcooking it the first time.

    They are trying to be a destination restaurant but cannot pull it off. The food is pricy but is just OK. For example duck bolognese tasted like any bolognese. There was nothing special from having duck. It was thoroughly OK. Also, order drinks about a half hour in advance. They had one bartender for the restaurant AND the relatively busy lobby bar. Unacceptable service at this price level.

    The Pink Grouse is a beautiful dining experience that I highly recommend. I started with the corn chowder, which included an excellent assortment of veggies that brought out the rustic flavor. (5/5) The mussels were delicious, the mussel sauce was habit-forming, and the size of the mussels themselves was impressive. (5/5) The tomato and tangerine salad was sweet, light, and farm-to-garden fresh. (4.8/5) The three entrees I selected for the table were the chicken confit (5/5), the duck bolognese(4.5/5), and braised pork cheeks (5/5). The chicken confit was flawless. Crisp skin and tender meat hit just right. The braised pork cheeks were worth the trip!

    The broccoli soup and the tomato platter tasted like summer sunshine! The parmesan ice cream on top of the tomatoes was such a ~cool~ way to add that flavor, and the pop of fresh basil is always a delight. The cocktails were both beautiful *and* tasty, it was hard not to keep ordering them. The steak special was cooked perfectly and presented well, and the duck bolognese was very cozy. We have just enough room for dessert and got the cheesecake and savarin. All plates cleaned :)

    I found The Pink Grouse to be delightful. The food was excellent. Presentation and flavors superb. The contemporary decor is very pleasant. The waitstaff attentive. My only complaint is that it took too long to serve our cocktails. The first course arrived before our cocktails did. I had wanted to enjoy my cocktail first. Apparently there was a wedding reception at the bar and that held up our order. To speed it along our waitress made the drinks herself. That was impressive! I will gladly return and recommend you.

    We went restaurant week, so a fixed price on a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. My friend and I shared because everything is delicious. The interior of the hotel in general and the restaurant space has some refreshingly cool architecture. First time I'd been but won't be the last.

    We had been wanting to dine here for a while and finally went for a celebratory dinner. The menu was uninteresting and the food even less so. Trying too hard to be cool rather than providing quality food where the flavors delight and is simply done. We enjoy fine dining so don't take this review as someone who doesn't have a sophisticated palate that can't appreciate what they are trying to accomplish here. They need to dine around Charlottesville and see what is working because this isn't. There was only one other table in the dining room with other guests, which should tell you something when all the nearby restaurants are filled!

    Began with a signature cocktail that was not drinkable. Should have taken it off the bill. Then my daughter ordered broccoli soup which she took one bite and didn’t like it. The server did not notice - she should have asked if it wasn’t to her liking, perhaps she could get her something else. Service was also remarkably slow and the restaurant was empty. 20 minutes to just get a drink. Now I know why it was empty. For $200. It should have been outstanding. We will not go back.

    1st time here. Came for brunch to celebrate a birthday, why it was something to note on the reservation I’m not sure because no one bothered to find out who was celebrating. Honestly the restaurant didn’t seem busy when we were seated but none the less we waited a good ten minutes before our waiter decided to acknowledge us. Sadly he was unenthusiastic about his task at hand- his job! Thank goodness for the sporadic refilling of our small water glasses to help us wait for our cocktails and food. Nothing special about the food, I make my avocado toast just like they did.

    Food was great and the staff did the best they possibly could. However, we arrived for a 10am brunch reservation made and confirmed multiple times through Open Table to be told they do not take brunch reservations at this time… we never really found out what happened, but again the staff took great care of our party of six. Food was great!

    More for the benefit of the restaurant than diners...very wobbly table, vacuuming and service work going on around us, focus on a catered party not restaurant patrons.
