We love going to the Grape.
It is wonderfully cozy with delicious food.
I had Courtney’s salad and the scallops .
My husband had the mushroom soup and salmon.
All was very good.

I 100% recommend you try this place. The Grape never fails as a Sunday Brunch choice or any meal choice. Every Sunday my friends and I enjoy a nice Sunday Brunch, and every single time I often say, "let's eat at The Grape." So out of all the places you could choose, why this spot? Not only are the appetizers delicious, but the portion sizing is just right if you like to eat a lot of food. Next, the on tray meals are absolutely delicious, and theres some healthy choices on the menu as well. Finally, the cafe latte's are a must have, as they seem to keep you wide awake for the rest of the day. Also, The Grape never fails to keep you filled for the rest of the day after your Sunday Brunch. Finally, if you have an allergy, this place is very accommodating, for example: One of my friends has a peanut allergy, and after notifying our waiter of my friends allergy, he ensured to keep an eye on the food, and to let the chefs know to not cross-contaminate the food, which was very helpful in being able to enjoy a nice Sunday Brunch without any hassle or troubles.

Everything was top notch except the duck was disappointing. It was simply bland. Salmon was wonderful, mussels tender and tasty, cream brûlée beautifully crisp. Learned about a new wine, Hartford Russian River chard. Of course it’s hard to find but ultimately I found a source! Great night !

I had a wonderful brunch here with my grandmother today as It’s one of her favorite brunch spots, for which I am very grateful. The food is always good, there is valet on-site, & the wait staff is always very accommodating. We did try an appetizer(the sausage hush puppies) on our waitress’ recommendation & it was DELICIOUS so we highly recommend as well. Great spot to go for an easy, casual, tasty meal.

I have been coming to the Grape since you only had a chalkboard to pick cheese, mushroom.soup and wine. I have had many romantic dinners and nice lunches,with friends. It has been.and will always be my favorite restaurant in Dallas. Thanks for accommodating my reservation last Saturday for my anniversary. Patti Holloway

My wife and I had our first date at The Grape back in 1979. We hadn't been in awhile because of a bad experience on our last visit, but thought we would give it a try since it was their 46th anniversary. We went with friends and it was great to be there again. Wonderful food and wine pairings.

Everything was wonderful. Only minor complaint was that we were seated at a 2 top towards the back and there was a 2 top on each side of us maybe 18 inches away. Was difficult to carry on a conversation because you could hear what was going on from both sides (we were middle table and had made reservation over a week in advance). Food and service was wonderful. We will try it again but will know to ask for a different part of the restaurant.

It was just so-so. My medium burger was very rare. And the chicken sandwich was over cooked. No flavor to the slaw. Very close quarters. Elbow to elbow. One thing they really did right was the frites. We asked for them to be crisp. Came out perfect!

Our server was terrible, he never once refilled our waters and we were outside on the patio on a pretty warm day. We had to ask multiple times if we could get the drinks we had ordered and he never once asked if we wanted another one. At the end of the meal, we asked him to split our checks and wrote down the amount and names that corresponded to the card. He was not able to get this black and white task correct and at the end of an already not good experience that was just too much. So my card was run for $100 when it should have been run for $30 dollars. A manager never touched out table. And a server was on the patio singing to a table who she was obviously friends with, however, it was annoying and disruptive to every other table on the patio. Very unprofessional.

The Grape is one of my favorites, and I was delighted to get their burger on a Monday! Unfortunately, the burger was dry and less enjoyable than usual. I wish I would have made a comment to the waiter, but enjoyed sharing the rest of a wonderful steak!

A friend and I met for my birthday, for brunch. WOW. Nice parking guys. Sweet hostess, and BEAUTIFUL place. Taylor was our server and he was so nice and knowledgeable. We both ordered a big burger. YUM. And the cinnamon pull-apart bread was the best. I already told a foodie coworker and my out-of-town sister that we've got to make more trips to The Grape. Thanks for being so kind.
