Waiter could be more attentive

We had the 2 salads offered for lunch and they left off the things we requested. They did not have sweet tea.

I was disappointed in my lunch at the Gruene Door. The server, Evan or Ethan I think, provided lackluster service. He suggested a draft beer and I have no idea what I was drinking; I could not look up what the actual beer was online; he said it was supposed to be dark but turned out to be light comparable...

Great chef at this little place in Gruene. The flavors are fresh and the entrees are well thought out and executed. The deserts are not up to par with the entrees. It's hard to get a table on a busy night if you don't have a reservation. Sunday brunch is really good too!

Other reviewers had commented that it could be noisy. So, on a Saturday night I wasn't surprised when the host gave us an option of sitting in the back (two large noisy parties) or sitting up front near the fire place but in the "bar area". We opted for the bar area. It was comfortable and we could chat easily.... More

The chef is creative and provides a truly memorable experience with a menu that is locally sourced and varied. A very nice selection of pork,... More

The Gruene Door is located in a shopping center. It has no view and is at a distance from historic Gruene. The food and ambience are enough to make up for it. We had a late lunch and every item was generous and tasty. The music was not too loud and was comprised of restful oldies. Being nearly empty, service... More

Had the rack of lamb and my guest had the trout. Presented very nicely enjoyable to eat. The wait staff is well trained and customer service is a priority. The kitchen sets an excellent standard.

We had a girls night last night and went to dinner at The Gruene Door. The waiter spills a full glass of red wine on me. It spills on my shirt, pants, shoes and purse with no apology. I go to the restroom and hear other wait staff talking about it. It was never mentioned again, no apologies, the manager... More
