We had 11 people celebrating a 50th birthday ages 70 to 12. Everyone loved their meals without one complaint. Great appetizers: Tower of Onions. Ceviche, and assorted salads. Many cuts of steak prepared many ways, delicious hamburgers, and salmon on a plank that was scrumptious for the main course selections. The birthday boy had a decadent chocolate cake to share...

I ate at the Raven Grill with my business team. The outdoor eating area was well suited for our group and was well ventilated and remarkably cool for an 81degree night. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. We had a variety of meals and everyone was very pleased with their selections. The pecan crusted Tilapia was excellent.

I got the pecan crusted chicken with green beans and grilled sweet potato--amazing! Great atmosphere. The bar is sort of secluded from the rest of the restaurant area just enough to not make either seating sections awkward. Great lighting, decor, and service. Quaint little fancy place!

I've been going to The Raven Grill for several years and the two most important consistencies are the quality/taste of the food, the excellent service and the polite and effective handling of small mistakes. Dining here is a no-brainer.

Place is nice enough. Service is good. Even though the menu does provide a lot of options, nothing really caught my eye. To be fair to the place, I have no specific complaints. Every thing is ...fine.

Location is right in the neighborhood. All the homes have a lot of characters so worth a quick walk in the neighborhood if during the day. We made reservation for Saturday night and they were very busy. Food was great and there was no complaint from anyone in our group. They were very accomodating to kids. I have the Cedar... More

Folks around us who appeared to be regulars seemed to come back for the salmon salad. I had the blacken tuna sandwich which was over done and quite dry, Nice topping of mango salsa and avocado, but could have used more of it along with some sort of chipotle mayonnaise or sauce on the toasted bun. Would not order again,... More

The Raven Grill is one of our favorite dining spots. It's located inside the loop near Rice Village, Rice University, The Medical Center, and the Museum District. We always have a superb meal here. My favorite is Cedar Plank Salmon. It's outstanding. My only complaint about the Raven is that they still permit smoking on their outdoor patio. We love... More

My husband, son, a friend and I dined here last night. We chose it due to its proximity to the Miller Outdoor Theater. On the plus side, the food was good. I had a salmon salad and my husband the shrimp salad. Prices are modest and the food came out promptly. On the negative side, my wine order was forgotten,... More
