A small chalkboard restaurant with impeccable service, awesome beers, wines, margaritas, and the best damn Tator tots and burgers ever! Small, get in there quick restaurant! Awesome menu!

Our 2 visits have good ones. My veggie wife has been given excellent veggie food and my choices have been excellent. Only downside has been strong bleach odor while we ordered(not good)

Love the taste of the burgers! The beef comes from grass feed animals and it makes a difference! Although the place is small and doesn't seat many, it's worth the wait!

They have a great selection of unusual burgers. It was very tasty. If you don't want any pink in your burger I would ask for it well done as even well done there was a little pink to the meat. There are a very limited number of tables so be prepared for a 30 to 45 minute wait. Service was... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in for dinner because it was recommended by a friend. My boyfriend is a burger fanatic and he loved his! I got the burger of the month that had bbq sauce and pineapple on it. Good stuff! I would come here again. Only complaint is this place is very small so you are sitting on... More

VERY small place. We originally tried it because we saw a lecture on grass fed beef from Bill Kurtis. It made a lot of sense, and we tried it. VERY small place, but the burgers are creative and very good and they offer craft beers. I would have to say a very unusual menu as you may not have seen... More

We love the food at Octave Grill. Their sloppy joes and hamburgers are excellent! The restaurant is very tiny so you have to go early to get a seat. The food is home cooked and the have a lot of natural items to select from.

We also split a Diana salad that had blue cheese, walnuts, etc with a citrus vinaigrette dressing. Very nice. For our entree split a hamburger that had cheese,... More

They say " good things come in small packages". This is one small venue. Altho a tiny place, the limited selection of food is excellent and prepared very well. Would recommend!!

My wife and I bring our young son here frequently. We are both chefs and find it difficult to go out and find a great meal that truly feels like a good value, especially vs cooking at home. Octave delivers...every time. It's so consistently good, every dish, drink special and dessert are top notch. Our son loves the steamed edamame... More
