Service was excellent - salmon salad superb but dry grilled chicken

Ate lunch on a Wednesday around 1:30 and place was about 1/3 full. We ordered two entrees - salad with grilled salmon and grilled chicken sandwich. The portion of both meals was substantial and my friend enjoyed the salmon a lot but I felt that the chicken was over cooked and was very dry... read more

I had dinner there (twice) last week while at a conference. The food was excellent. They certainly had the best vegetarian platter I have ever had.

Although we were stuck at the Raven for dinner unexpectedly during one of Houston's sudden torrential rain showers recently, this establishment produced a great meal, with very attentive service (despite being understaffed due to the flood conditions), seamlessly. We were very grateful for the fine food as we watched out the window the occasional car/truck plow through the flooded street... More

Came here for lunch for the third time. Had the sweet potato and spinach enchiladas. Lunch partner had the shrimp etouffee. We shared the appetizer of jalapeno shrimp. We liked everything and look forward to going back to try other items. Our service was good too.

....so I hate to rate them just average. Maybe it was what we ordered - I had a hamburger and fries and my husband had the shrimp etouffee . The dishes were good, but nothing fabulous. My fries were limp, the burger tasty. The others in our party seemed to enjoy the evening's special - chicken fried steak; one person... More

I first went to this restaurant ONLY because it was 1/2 mile from where I was staying - I ordered the cucumber jalapeno margarita and the Thursday night seafood enchilada special - the first was unusual and amazing, and the 2nd was remarkable. It was a little Tex Mex but the freshness of the ingredients is what made it stand... More

My wife enjoyed a salad and my friends tried the shrimp etouffee. In the past I have had the fried oysters which were wonderful and tempted me this time, but I'm working to knock off a few holiday pounds so I had the turkey burger. I love turkey burgers and The Raven Grill served me one of the best I... More

The Raven Grill is a nice neighborhood spot. I enjoy coming in with friends and family for dinner and drinks frequently. The cedar plank salmon is one of my favorites! It is a must have if you like salmon. And the wine selection offered only seems to get more interesting and varied each time I visit. The only thing lacking... More

Been to Raven Grill four times, had a different entre each time and totally enjoyed each meal. Interesting is the Sampler Platter which has about 7 different items, all good, and a lot of food (get a doggie bag). Fried oysters are one of my favorites. Nice desserts (if you still have room). Can be crowded on Friday and Saturday... More

Raven grill is one of my favorite dinner spots in Houston. The food and the service are always fantastic. The Raven tacos and pecan crusted chicken are my favorites. The crowd is slightly older and seems to be busiest around 7 pm. We usually go around 8 pm and have no trouble getting a table.
