Pink Grouse is close to being great, but just misses. The atmosphere, service and plates are top notch, but...there simply isn’t enough food (especially at the price point). The good news, they could easily fix the problem by balancing the dishes with a bit more pasta or rice or sides - and it wouldn’t remake the food. Or, offer up some bread or something more filling. Really great place, but it’s not quite “dialed in” for the level they are playing at. Hope to return if they can tweak it just a bit.

Our dinner at the Pink Grouse was one of the best meals we have had in Charlottesville in a long time. Would absolutely recommend and we look forward to going back soon.

The food is very flavorful and interesting and the courtyard was lovely. Our only complaint is that the portions are extremely small and the steak literally just came with one small mushroom and a piece of an onion. No vegetables, not even offered as a side. We had to ask as a special request to have some veggies. The peach salad was delicious and sublime, the crab pasta was flavorful but very very small amount (and we are typical fine dining eaters who eat small portions). The chicken gnocchi was okay. The semifreddo and the watermelon sorbet were delicious.

We celebrated our anniversary at Pink Grouse. I had read reviews prior about the small portion size but I didn’t mind as long as the dish was of high quality and complex in flavor. Pink Grouse delivered neither. The portions are absurdly small. Not only are they small, but the ingredient’s cost is minimal. I ordered the chicken and gnocchi and received chunks of chicken thigh, a few gnocchi and some green beans and corn. My husband ordered the crab and pasta... there were like 3 lumps of crab and that was it. We ate outside, which was lovely and it was fun to peak in the hotel. The rooftop restaurant had a 2 hour wait, or we would have had some appetizers to satisfy our hunger! We will go back to celebrating the rest of our special occasions at Duners when they reopen!

We had a lovely dinner outside. We managed to finish just as the rain started. I would highly recommend The Pink Grouse as a wonderful place for delicious outdoor dining.

The Pink Grouse was quite lovely and the food was delicious. The Octopus starter was very tasty and the seabass over the rice with red onion marmalade, coconut curry and cilantro was divine!!! Its a very new restaurant and I definitely recommend going.

Service was very good and would be 5* but I could not hear any of the servers through the masks. They really need to speak up and project as the music is also up pretty high.

The other less than 5 is the ambiance. This place is brightly lit, almost too bright and I felt there was no ambiance at all. The decor is okay, nothing special and the kitchen is so brightly lit that I feel dropping lighting down some would only enhance the dining experience. There is a seating area with benches but it was too dark.

The food is definitely worth the visit.

Fourth excellent meal at the Pink Grouse. Service by Lauren was excellent and friendly. She made us all feel special. Ken the manager does a superlative job making guests feel special and ensuring that they have a wonderful evening. The bass, octopus, grilled peach and the signature Hemingway and Pink Grouse drinks are particular favorites. Thank you.

Food was great but everyone left hungry. For the price, your restaurant should be giving people value. Unfortunately won’t return and won’t recommend

There are 5 star fine dining and 5 star sports bars. This is different but excellent. The food was very creative with combinations I have never seen. For example, the black bass in coconut curry over a fried rice cake. So many tastes but still able to let you appreciate the wine. Well done!! The service was excellent and very friendly, even behind a mask. The place is a bit loud but its avant garde decor make it all work. Can't wait to get back.

We planned a 3 day getaway from DC and stayed at the Quirk Hotel. We chose The Pink Grouse to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. Though the interior dining room is quite nice we opted to eat outdoors on the patio. The entire staff was pleasant, welcoming, attentive, and worked to make the evening a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the Summer Melon Gazpacho and Roasted Peach. Of special note were the Local Harvest Strip and Black Bass. Cocktails were very good and we finished our meal with the Pickled Watermelon Sorbet.

An exceptional experience all the way around. From starters to desserts the food is wonderful and should not be missed. The Black Bass and Harvest Strip were superb. The service was top notch. Our server Beth was attentive, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful with suggestions. Her advices and recommendations were spot on. While we were guests of the hotel, The Pink Grouse is well worth a visit even from outside the Charlottesville area. We will be back.

Realize it is new...small plates were very good. Clam Chowder Pasta was ok but too salty and heavy. Espresso was weaker than regular coffee. Growing pains?
