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

This was their first try in the... 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.

We have made this restaurant one of our haunts. The first trip was to meet our daughter's fiancee and his parents for dinner. The lamb was exquisite, the quail was delicate and tender and sides were garlic spinach and polenta. Wait staff were attentive and offered recommendations that did not disappoint. The wine selection was impressive as well. Next trip... More

Each month, a family member rents the "back room" for a family celebration of sorts. We toast birthdays, great report cards, special accomplishments, and special family visitors, as well as catch up with the "goings on" in each family. The food is delicious, the drink plentiful and the fun is enormous!

We brought my mother here for brunch to celebrate her birthday. This was our first time here and we were pleasantly surprised. The service, food, price and ambiance were wonderful. We plan in coming back again soon.

A favorite place for lunch. Never too busy, and fairly quick service. Menu and pricing a little upscale but consistently good. I recommend their soups and salads- always fresh. Love the petite salmon filet but whatever you order, you MUST try the flash fried spinach! This is truly a unique delicacy and they always get it perfect!
