The service was great very nice and helpful with menu option and details. Very clean and intimate atmosphere. We got the baked brie and Braised Lamb Tartines for appetizer. Our table ordered Day boat dry scallops ( cooked perfect), Coal Miners pasta (lovely sauce), and Bistro steak frites ( so tender and buttery). Desert topped of the fantastic meal with Lemon Hot Buttered Rum cake ( everyone's favorite) and Dark chocolate terrine ( good but not as good as everything else). Defiantly going back very soon!!!!

There is a reason why The Grape has been in Dallas as long as it has - it just never disappoints. The atmosphere is intimate and warm, the service is superb, and the food is always delicious. It isn’t an innovative menu, in my opinion, but when you want to gather with friends and catch up on life and enjoy good food and nice conversation, you won’t go wrong.

Food was actually quite delicious and our waitress was great but we were there about 15 minutes early and were made to sit at the bar which we are happy to do. It took the bartender almost 10 minutes to acknowledge us and get us a drink even though there were only two other people sitting at the bar. The hostess was not very accommodating either.

Great dinner-Would have been better if meal for my wife had been done correctly-Asked for no meat, came with meat. At last her meal arrived and we enjoyed our dinner. Waitress offered a free dessert for the error. we were OK with everything up to this point. Ordered dessert and a cappuccino. We shared the dessert. The check was dropped off and still no coffee. Asked to have that removed from check. I usually tip 20%, but not this time. Told the waitress how disappointed I was with her service, didn't feel like talking with the manager ,so left.

Great food and average service. The food is fresh and stands out - scallops are particularly tasty. However, the service left much to be desired. Felt intimidated by not being a wine expert and server did not try to help.

We haven't been here in years and a friend of ours wanted to try it. It use to be a nice place for food and service. I was very disappointed in the food. I ordered the salmon and it came on top of mash potatoes. The wine was less to be desired. Very disappointed when you bring a friend that wanted to try it. The food was not what we expected from a place that calls it self a French restaurant.

This was the best meal I've had in Dallas in the last 18 months. My girlfriend and I sat outside near the street, it was very comfortable even though it was warm outside the tented seating area. Services was strong and the food was just incredible. We'll be back immediately.

Upon entering this unassuming establishment, we were seated by the owner Courtney and taken care of by Jeremy, who were both very attentive and catered to our needs. The restaurant has a rustic vibe and I like that it is a bit smaller. Everything we ordered was outstanding. The mushroom soup is an absolute must try and we also had the grilled artichoke, braised lamb tartines and steak frites. We paired our dinner with the northstar merlot which was very smooth and the perfect complement to all of our entrees.. I will definitely be looking for this wine in the future! Unfortunately we were too full for dessert but will have to try the next time we're in. Would definitely recommend this place.

The Grape was a fantastic, quaint, and quiet restaurant for our anniversary. The food was very good and our server was excellent! I only wish there was a little more choice on the menu. They had a sign on the table that noted that it was our anniversary which was a nice touch! Overall, our experience was great!

The Grape is truly a Dallas institution. The food is fantastic and the wine list is great as well. Top notch service and the atmosphere has a "home" sort of feeling to it. My only complaint would be our table. Our party was for 2, so the table was small and felt very cramped. I was practically touching the seat of the gentleman behind me. If you have at least a party of four, you should be in good shape.
