We arrived for our 7:30 reservation and were seated outside as requested. After a couple of awkward passings our waitress took our drink order. When she returned with them ~ 15 minutes later, we were ready to place our appetizers but she had to check on something and would be right back. Another 15 minutes later we finally flagged her...

We had dinner at Grit last night having heard good things about it. The place is one of the newer trendy restaurants in Eugene. It has an upbeat feel where the chef and grill are up next to the diners. We immediately felt that it was way too noisy as the staff were competing with the diners. The noise could... More

It's very small so naturally very loud, the service was just average, very little to smile about and the food was mediocre at best.

The food tastes fantastic. However, presentation and portion size leaves much room for improvement. Cocktails were meh, wine list is good. Service was incredibly slow. We dined on a Tuesday evening outside. Our party wanted to be wowed but it was just okay.

The food is very good and the cocktails are excellent. The cheese plate was outstanding--very creative selections/accompaniments and all delicious. I had beef stroganoff, which surprised me a little because it was one piece of meat, rather than chunks in a sauce. But it was fork-tender and excellent. Service can be a little spotty--our waitress was sweet but not always... More

We have never been disappointed here! The menu is always eclectic and the service is very good. Their wine selection is very nice and we love the atmosphere - a bubbly, happening type of place. The rabbit is delicious, no matter how they're cooking it and the cocktails are fantastic. We eat here twice a month, and always take our... More

Four of us had dinner this weekend. All the meals were perfect. Awesome to watch the meals being cooked right in front of us. Don't know how everyone stays so calm. Everything is so fresh.

This restaurant was selected by our local host and it was a good choice for a group which really didn't know each other. First - Grit Kitchen is the house on the corner of 3rd and Van Buren. The entrance is on Van Buren and somewhat hidden. We drove past it twice. The drinks were local beers and iced teas... More

Wishing to have a fine dining experience for our anniversary, I made reservations at Grit. It was our first dinner at the restaurant. After being seated in a side-room, we were surprised at the high noise level. So much for intimacy. Although the restaurant seemed to strive for out of the ordinary entree's, the limited number of dinner choices was... More
