The Grape Ratings and Reviews
The Grape is a classic. We had not been in a while so we visited Saturday. We ate in the wine room which was new for us. It was cozy and nice. We started off with the Braises Lamb Tartines. They were delicious and just the right amount for 2. No trip to The Grape is complete without a cup of their famous mushroom soup which did not disappoint. For dinner we had the Bistro Steak Frites and the Sauteed TX Grouper both prepared perfectly. All in all a great meal. Our server did a terrific job. Just the right amount of attention.
Enjoyed the quiet, cozy, and elegant ambiance
Service was good and kept my water filled (please deliver bread/butter a little sooner though)
Portion size was appropriate
Food was very tasty and required no effort to eat
Dessert was tasty and not too rich
Include the burger offered at brunch on the dinner menu. I told several people i went to The Grape to eat and they asked if i had the burger and I said No - Only to find out it's only on the brunch menu.
Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. He noticed the food was taking us a little longer that he seemed it should have and gave my date and myself a free glass of wine for being patient. Neither of us complained or even noticed it was taking too long but he thought it was necessary and we very much appreciated the gesture by him and the owners policy.
And when the food did come out it was fantastic!
Came in for Valentine’s Day dinner, and was once again totally in love with dinner. I love being able to confidently order some things I can be picky about (I don’t usually like lamb or lobster at most places) at the Grape and being able to fully enjoy all the potential of the food. Lamb tartines were full of flavor without being gamey! The steak was the best steak I’ve ever had. Period. So tender and delicious. I thought the dessert options for the prefix menu were great! St. Honore and Opera cake( so classic!) with an expresso was a perfect end to our special Valentine’s Day!
My husband and I went here for our Valentine’s Day dinner. They had pre-fixed 3 course meal options and the food was very good! We were seated on the enclosed patio and the lighting was romantic. We chose the wine paring option and really enjoyed the overall experience!
We have enjoyed the Grape for 30 years so we decided to enjoy a Valentine’s Dinner there. We won’t do this in the future.
The portions were obviously smaller than usual but the price was not similarly reduced. My redfish was not hot and was undercooked with a lot of inedible skin. My Paloma cocktail was extremely bitter; sharing this with the waitress I was told it was supposed to be like that; it was replaced with a similarly disappointing Cosmo which on many previous visits had been delicious.
We left sad and disappointed that one of our favorite spots had succumbed to taking advantage of Valentine diners.
So we’ll go back but not for any event dinner.
I went The Grape for my Birthday brunch. February 11. The service was awful. The waiter brought my “Warm Cinnamon Pull Aparts” cold. The coffee was lukewarm. The waiter did not come back to check on us. Consequently, two of us had to get up and refill our own coffee cups. The main courses were OK. It took the waiter a long time to bring the bill. Then it took quite a while for him to pick up our money. I got tired of waiting and I spoke to the manager. She apologized, but did nothing. She could have taken the cold “warm cinnamon pull aparts” off the bill, but she did nothing.
I once loved The Grape, but I will not be going back.
I have loved this restaurant for 30 years...for dinner. I had heard about their award winning burgers served only at Sunday brunch so I invited my three 20-something sons for brunch. All three ordered the bacon cheeseburgers and none of them finished it, not because it was too big but because (even though they were ordered for varying degrees of wellness) they were burnt on the outside very rare on the inside and just not too tasty. The fried chicken sandwich was fine but the bun did not meet its description. I was thrilled that its slaw topping was scant. My husband was pleased with the simple breakfast of eggs and breakfast ham. The hash browns must have been the bottom of the pot. They looked like mush.
For starters we had the monkey bread. Bring your insulin if you plan to have more than a bite of this.
By the way, I still love the Grape and will be returning for dinner in the future.
We were escorted to a very quiet part of the dining area near the wine racks - quietest part of the restaurant...nicest area to carry on a conversation
The food - soups , ravioli and pork chop- was outstanding as was the wine- we chose a Pinot Blanc from Brooks- outstanding taste and value. The waiter was so nice, attentive and informative. Even the valet was terrific. As always, the Grape never disappoints.
We went to The Grape to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone congratulated us and made us feel welcomed. Everything was perfect, we had the cheese & charcuterie plate, I had the steak frites and creme brulee, he had the lamb ras el hanout and chocolate cake. Service was great, we loved everything about the evening, except for the rain outside when we left.
I think my boyfriend and I try to resist calling bad service homophobia because it’s usually just bad service, but it would be damn hard to convince me it wasn’t this time. Our waiter avoided eye contact, said the minimal amount of words to us, never refilled our drinks (I had coffee, he had wine - empty glasses for the entire meal). The couples to either side of us got to hear about the specials, for their sinks refilled, had dessert offered to them, etc. - come on!
I don’t recommend gay couples eat at The Grape. The steak was cooked wrong, anyway. Rare was ordered but medium was delivered.
Afterwards, we went to Halcyon just two doors down and had incredible service and met some fine people. I say go there instead!
The Grape remains one of Dallas most iconic restaurants for more than 45 years. Last fall current owners Brian and Courtney Luscher celebrated their 10th anniversary as owners of the Grape. It is superb. Classic mushroom soup. Wonderful wine list. Great options for cheese as appetizers. Just worth a visit. Dallas classic.
The Grape is a staple for us but sadly this come as you are wine dinner was a big miss. We’ll continue to visit as this is one of our favorite spots in Dallas, but this tasting menu was a big disappointment compared to the normal delicious dinner we receive here.
seating was not acceptable. swished in with a ladder at my back. food was just so so. a real disappointment except for the mushroom soup haystack did not have scrambled eggs as the menu advertised. the roisti was not very crisp on the outside and was under seasoned as was the dish as a whole. my date's breakfast was passable but nothing special, underwhelming.
Shame, I had waited actually for years to try the Grape. I will not be going back
First time at The Grape. Fresh, delicious meals. Creative ingredients. People in our group ordered seafood, steaks, pork chop. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much. Will definitely go back to try other entrees. Attentive service. Seating a little tight between tables. Relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
