Crowded Goodness

I have been to The Grape for dinner, but never for brunch. So I was a little taken aback, when I walked in and it was overflowing with people. It is a small venue and the tables are basically on top of each other, so if you don't like tight spaces, don't go here. The service was good and... read more

We had to go to The Grape after reading the USA Today article saying it had the Best Burger in Texas! Wow, it really was a very good burger with lots of flavor from the meat and cheese to the very fresh veggies. They only make them on Sunday and Monday though.

I just dined here last night and again had one of the best hamburgers I have ever eaten. I have several excellent dinners here over the past 10 years.

We went in for coffee and dessert. Crème brulee was fine but served deep; shallow is much better. I ordered three scoops of homemade ice cream which were inedible. We were there for 45 minutes, and the ice cream never melted. Terrible chewy texture. I don't know how or why anyone would serve something like that.

Disappointing. Reserved through OpenTable for 7pm birthday meal for a two. Although a Thursday evening and the restaurant was not full the service was slow and very lacking. The meal was extremely poor quality. I ordered the Branzino (sea bass) after the waiters recommendation. It was described as a fluffy thick white fish, accompanied with duck fat roast potatoes and...

My wife and I as well as another couple decided to try The Grape on a whim as we were driving down Greenville Ave. Admittedly, we did not have the "recommended" reservation and we were seated on the patio. Not a problem, as the patio is enclosed and the heaters were turned on. As mentioned in another review, the table... More

I have been going to The Grape since the 1980s. For so long, this was simply one of the most reliable restaurants for a sophisticated dining experience in Dallas. It is not bad but it has lost a lot of the nuance it used to have, I hate to say. Let me start with the positives -- the food. My... More

There is a good reason why The Grape consistently gets great reviews and that is because they deserve it. The food is always wonderful and true to its French roots. Whether you order Roasted Duck, Steak au Poive, Coq Au Vin or a fish dish you can expect it to be perfectly cooked and presented. The cheese platter is a... More

Who would have thought that the best burger in Dallas, by popular vote, would only be served on Sunday and Monday? That fact is on The Grape's website but who looks at a website when they want a burger on a Tuesday? We got over our disappointment and had a fine bistro meal but that wasn't what we were hungry...

I have been to the Grape several times over the years, but had not been back for some time. It is comforting to know that some things don't change and the Grape is as compelling as ever. The place is tiny and cramped; it feels more like the West Village than Dallas. I guess that is part of the charm.... More
