We were really impressed by this restaurant! From the minute we walked in, the waiters were friendly and accommodating. Our party had a couple special requests and the restaurant handled them all flawlessly. We also needed a quiet place due to someone in our group being hard of hearing and this ended up being a great choice. The food was AMAZING. Everyone in our group RAVED about how delicious everything was. From our wine, to the appetizers, to our entrees, we had no complaints about a single thing. This restaurant deserves every star it has.

Love The Grape, but our artichoke was super salty, our red fish was too salty, and pasta was overcooked. Won't stop us from visiting, but just make a few changes. Our wine and service was awesome however!!

This for sure is a hidden gem, the waitress that greeted us was incredibly sweet and new the menu inside and out. If you’re looking for an escape into a day of yesteryear the restaurants atmosphere and tasting the food offers back and more. The charm is something that feels as though it was pouring out of the 60s a mom-and-pop restaurant.

As always, one of the shining stars of Dallas’ dining scene- The Grape is ALWAYS a lovely experience, and Sunday brunch is OUTSTANDING. Regardless of when you go, DO NOT SKIP the Mushroom Soup. It’s still the best I’ve ever tasted.

This was our second trip to the Grape. As before, food was outstanding. We appreciate the creativity on the menu.
My wife had a pork shoulder dish that is difficult to describe, but absolutely not to be missed.
The attention to detail is obvious, service superb.

Horrible service. I appreciate a laid back pace but 2 1/2 hours for dinner is excessive. I think Jeremy N just kept forgetting he had our table. More wine and drinks would have been nice. Dessert was part of our plans but we finally just had to go. Finally got his attention to bring the check. May try this place again to see if this pace is the norm here but bet the owners would prefer building a check while turning tables. In this case Jeremy did neither.

Fantastic service and dinner. The calamari was different than any I've tried, with a bit of an Asian flavored sauce. Fantastic. The seak and pork chop were also excellent. The corn that comes with it..also amazing. Great for a date night for sure.

We have always thought of the Grape as an exceptional restaurant in Dallas – for food service and ambience. But on our last visit one item we ordered was disappointing. That was the veal which was tough and not of the exceptional flavor that we have come to expect at the Grape. We don’t like to make a scene or we would have definitely sent it back to the kitchen. The Roast chicken was OK particularly the sauce which was very good. The flash fried calamari and the mushroom soup were both very good. We have made special occasion visits to The Grape since 1976.

One of our nicest meals there. It is always good, but it was very lovely tonight. We had mussels and the lamb tartine to start. Then redfish and the coalminer's pasta. Everything cooked perfectly. The suggested peach dessert was exceptional. Service was great. Love going to The Grape.

Initially I had a reservation at 7:00 and showed up 10minutes early, right as we walked in the hostess got a phone call and told us to wait in the other room. I believe she forgot about us or something because the restaurant was half full and she didn’t come seat us until 7:15. Also when she came she asked are y’all still waiting to be seated, which leads me to believe me she forgot about us. Besides that everything else was perfect.

We've now been to the Grape twice and we can't wait to go back again! The service has been above exceptional both times. We felt both welcome and taken care of by all the staff there.

Make sure and take advantage of the complimentary valet, just don't forget to bring cash to tip your valet!

We have been going to the Grape for over 30 years. While I used to consider their food outstanding, I feel that it is no longer up to the "special" standard that it had for many years.
It remains a cozy, friendly, neighborhood spot that we will continue to frequent, despite a bit of a downward slide in the food.
