A little tight but not too loud. I was still sitting about a foot and a half from the table next to us though so it was almost like we were sitting together to the couple next to us. The food is absolutely astounding and blew me away. However, dinner with wine on Valentine’s Day ended up being an equivalent tab to if we had just gone to one of the higher end steak houses where we wouldn’t have been elbow to elbow with other tables. I expected more of a formal setting for the price but that’s on me, just go casual because you’ll be more comfortable. The food is undeniably amazing to the point that management should think about upgrading the restaurant site.

Our Valentine's Day dinner on the patio at The Grape was magical. Heavenly grapefruit salad with winter greens, slivers of carrot and beet and candied hazelnuts. The tournedos had so much flavor and were cooked perfectly. We loved the lemon cheesecake and chocolate tart with raspberries. The Grape hummed with good service, outstanding wine selections and incredible food. Courtney, one of the owners, meets you at the door with a welcoming smile--even if Dallas traffic made you a bit late. Reminded us of a Parisian bistro--but we're lucky enough to have this gem in Dallas. We've been going here since the 1980s for a special meal or brunch.

The Grape is among my top 5 favorite restaurants. Considering longevity, probably #1. No other place I know has made me happy every time I visited over.a 40 year range. Well, make that #1. I have been to snootier places. But the Grape always makes me happy I came.

The Grape never disappoints. The menu is varied - beef, pork, chicken, duck, seafood, pasta, soups, salads, sides, great wine list. It literally has something for everyone. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable and the service is attentive and friendly. I love that this place is owned by a husband and wife team who are always there, working, friendly and talented. One of the best restaurant's in Dallas!

We were at the Grape to celebrate a birthday. We showed up too early to be seated at once for dinner but everyone made us feel welcome until the dining area opened. Taylor served us and did an excellent job. What a nice quiet atmosphere and what delicious food. The birthday celebration was a smashing success!

We had a great experience. Wonderful food, drinks and ambiance. Our server was delightful and the owner came over to check on our table.
However we made a reservation through Open Table instead of calling the restaurant. There was a mix up and we ended up getting seated much later then our reservation was for. So next time if I use Open Table I will call and verify my reservation with the Grape before arrival.
We will be back and I would highly recommend the Grape, they handle the reservation mix up fantastically.

The service is par to none and the ambiance is quite nice. The appetizers and dinner were delicious and although we were seated quite close to others, we felt like it actually felt very private. It is a quaint dinner place and one not to miss in Dallas.

After a long stressful day I needed a relaxing atmosphere, a great cocktail and a delicious beautiful meal. The Grape delivered all of that and perfect service as well!!
It’s my favorite restaurant in Dallas now. If you want a sense of Paris, a small quaint cozy place in the middle of Dallas with a great adjoining cocktail bar, this is it too.
I have never had anything but a great night here.
