The prices were too high for everything. We did have a nice experience. The waitstaff was nice. The food was good. I would not visit here again, if I were comparing places to eat out.

Made reservations ahead of time. Arrived on time and seated quickly upstairs. It was a bit dark. There was a gal there playing piano which was nice. Started with the scallops which were great. Good scallops for sure. I had the tuna dish with noodles....Wife had the sea bass and son had the New York strip. Steak was good and cooked medium rare. Sea bass was meh. It wasn’t flavored well, tasted fishy. My tuna was ok and didn’t have any flavor. For the price expected more. Wouldn’t go back.More

We had a party of 6 and I was so glad we made reservations! The place was packed and our experience justified the interest! Our meal was great. Our table had steaks and seafood options as well as couple of different bottles of wine. The...service was attentive and quick, and the atmosphere was elegant. The menu was a little on the limited side. I'm not sure if that is normal or due to all the supply/labor shortages going on. But the food that was offered was good.More

We very much enjoyed our meals, which were well prepared and presented. The service was extremely good - very attentive and polite. Good selection at the bar. Pleasant atmosphere, live piano music. Will definitely return.

The food we had at the bar during happy hour was nice. Unfortunately, the scallops appetizer was not hot but just barely warm. It was disappointing. Cocktails were good and the atmosphere festive as it is Christmas week. I enjoy sitting at the bar and...relaxing with a cocktail. I wish our bartender would have smiled, she seemed stressed and they only just opened at 5p.More

I get it, its Holiday time. Our dinner was on a Wed. evening. This was our first time to Dino"s. We where there from 7:00 P.M. tell a little after 8:P.M. The restaurant and bar where packed..Everyone was talking over everyone to be heard, so...my date and I hardly heard a word to each other. Service as very average for a busy night.We noticed that their menu online ( we looked before we went ) was not the menu we where offered. I asked the waiter and he confirmed that also. So our choice's ended up being a little limited from their " normal" menu. We shared a steak ( 14oz ) and it was cooked as we like, but the steak it'self was not any better, or any worse we have had other places. One other note... as tables and bar top where cleaned, they used only Windex. Windex as we all know is a glass cleaner, not a disinfectant.Water would have done as much...More

Steaks that melt in your melt, vegetables cooked to the exact point of done but not overdone, crispy/fresh salad - the food was divine. But that wasn't the end - the ambience was soft and comfortable, pianist was exactly the right balance of pleasant, but...not obtrusive, and the best wait person I have ever had. I can't believe that I walked out without getting our waiter's name, but she was so professional, helpful, and friendly, my friends and I were all impressed. I took guests from Connecticut and they loved it. I looked so good as a host so I am grateful and I will be back!More

Dino's is an older looking restaurant in the downtown area of Grapevine. They have lots of parking in the back. We had reservations on a week night and were seated right away. The menu isn't huge but everything we tried was good. We started with...a chop salad and a Caesar salad. Both hit the spot. My husband had the halibut wrapped in potatoes and I had the Ahi Tuna with noodle and vegetables. We both really enjoyed the food. The service was a little spotty. Our waiter seemed to disappear for long stretches of time. We weren't in a hurry so it was okay, but seemed a little odd. Prices were reasonable for the type of food we ordered. We'd return if we're in town again.More

This steakhouse is moderately priced for the value. It provides great steak options that are not outrageous from a price standpoint and the quality is very good. I have the opportunity to dine for business and I was pleasantly surprised. The waitstaff was very friendly...and helpful. I had the New York strip with mash potatoes, carrots and mushrooms. The steak was cooked to order and very flavorful. They have a fully stock bar so I has able to have a cocktail and a glass of wine with my dinner. To finish things off I had the a nice dessert key lime pie. Also very good. Overall great meal fir a good valueMore

My wife and I dined here last night for the first time. We arrived 25 minutes before our reservation but were seated immediately. We started with the crab claws and escargot appetizers. The claws were just okay and the escargot was overcooked and tasteless so...we sent them back. Next course was salads, Caprese and Caesar. They were both well portioned and very good. Our entrees were the 8 ounce filet with scallops, garlic mashed potatoes and grilled veggies and the crab cakes. The steak was great, fork tender perfect medium cook. The scallops were not. They lacked in flavor and were undercooked. The spuds and veggies were good, but overall the dish wasn't worth $50 bucks. I didn't like the taste of the crab cakes. They lacked in fresh crab flavor, so I sent them back and shared my wife's entree. I ended my meal with a creme brulee that was only average. Service was good. The decor and ambiance are excellent, perfect for a romantic dinner, but since there are better fine dining options for both steak and seafood, we do not recommend.More

I've eaten at Dino's twice and ordered the filet with mashed potatoes and carrots. Each time I commented on either the steak had not being cooked correctly or the carrots being raw. One time my friends and I went to the bar and had a...Chocolate Martini. I do recommend ordering one. Yum. My husband and I returned one last time hoping they would redeem themselves. When you spend that amount of money on a meal you would expect excellent service. Our waiter had the personality of a stump. It's like he didn't want to be there. I commented that my raw carrots and he just said, "Oh, ok." He had no facial expressions at all the whole meal (the two times he checked on us) I did speak to the manager so hopefully his attitude will change. Overall, I'm just not impressed. There are other great steak restaurants in Grapevine.More

We had great seafood dinners at Dino’s last night. I had the redfish and my husband had the halibut. Both were delicious and very fresh. The bread pudding made a great ending to a delightful dinner.

This restaurant is somewhere in between a standard everyday steakhouse (like Outback or Salt Grass) and a top notch steakhouse (like Morton's or Ruth's Chris), and priced accordingly. All and all not a bad option in a great downtown Grapevine location.

It is more upscale restaurant so we wore business casual. I would be surprised though if they have formal dress code.

Sorry I don’t have the prices. They probably have them posted outside. It is not cheap but it is not as costly as some well known steak houses.
