This is a great restaurant for a special night out. The food is outstanding and the ambiance is spectacular. There is no rush from the waiters to finish your meal quickly and leave. I would recommend the soups and gnocchi! However, one of my favorite aspects of this restaurant is the menu is seasonal!

Whenever we travel, we try to find local cuisine as opposed to chain restaurants. The Gruene Door hit the mark! We started with an appetizer of deconstructed tuna nachos. The Ahi tuna was seared perfectly and sliced thin. It was served with marinated jalapeños and wonton chips. For our entree, we both had the grilled salmon with a Parmesan polenta... More

Gruene has outgrown it's old buildings neighborhood and expanded to a new, upscale restaurant and bar area including The Gruene Door. They did a good job of serving our group of about 20 last Saturday night following our bike ride of the Tour de Gruene. I think all in our group felt the food and service were great.

We love going to this restaurant and I often recommend it to friends. The staff is always top notch and the food as well. We went this Sunday for brunch and it was wonderful, as usual. I had a version of eggs Benedict which included a perfectly cooked filet and my wife had a great little smoked turkey sandwich with... More

Although "trendy" is not what I love about this restaurant, it is. We went off peak, so no wait, but be prepared to wait or get a reservation ahead of time if you want to go during regular dinner hours. The chicken piccata was great, as was the spinach salad (not your average salad). The salmon was divine...melt in your... More

While on a girls trip, we had lunch at the Gruene Door, and the food and service was outstanding! The staff is attentive and helpful. The only problem is that we did NOT go back for dinner - should have! But did go back later in the night for drinks, and had another outstanding experience.

While the host stand personnel can be a little aloof, the variety on the menu and taste of the food make this a great place to visit. Service is always good, the atmosphere is quiet and understated. Great place for a business lunch or quiet celebration - love the great seafood selections available here! Somewhat pricey, but a cut above... More

Very pretty but noisy (aren't all new upscale restaurants?!) - but the food and bar more than make up for it. Consistently 8 outa 10.
