Dropped by this restaurant after hearing a lecture at the Museum of Fine Arts on Urbanism by Richard Florida. Great talk followed by a great dinner. Waitress and hostesses were very nice and attentive. We had a nice inexpensive bottle of white wine (Viognier). I had the pecan crusted chicken. Very tasty. The sweet potatoes were a little much. Couldn't... More

Stopped here to meet friends for brunch while we were visiting Houston as a recommendation from our hotel concierge. We had the jalapeno shrimp, sweet potato enchiladas and the burger. All delicious. Great & attentive service (thanks, Josh!), decent beer list and reasonably priced. Great section of town. Will definitely come back next time we visit.

We have eaten at the Raven since it opened, as a couple and w friends. The tasty food, courteous service and relaxed ambience always brings us back. We appreciate too the good quality for a reasonable price. How fortunate to have a local Raven Grill.

DISAPPOINTED in the overall dining experience - I ordered a Caesar Salad with grilled salmon, a good staple & should have been skillfully executed - both were quite Unremarkable. The salad dressing was skimpy & not tossed throughout...what?....a very small amount drizzled on top. Asked for more caesar dressing - The salmon was nothing special - asked for tartar sauce...

Upon the recommendation of a friend, who has dined at the Raven Grill on a number of occasions, I had dinner at this neighborhood restaurant. There was sufficient parking for this restaurant, and the service was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. The mixed green salad was fresh and the pecan crusted chicken was outstanding. This is a great... More

I love to eat at Raven Grill and would eat there every week if it were closer. Everything is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. I especially like the vegetable plate, but have tried fish, chicken, salads and Mexican entrees and enjoyed everything.

Good, very good restaurant., Went here after a book reading, then did the same again after another reading a couple of weeks later. Food very good, well prepared, well designed menu and available options. Wine list good, not overly expensive. Not sure why we stopped going here, but certainly a mistake not to be repeated.

I had the crab cakes and cedar plank salmon with a cocktail while sitting solo on the patio. The food was SO delicious! The patio was tranquil and the service perfect! Highly recommend this little gem!

For the longest time I have resisted writing a review of the Raven Grill because...well...I't just as soon it not get any more crowded than it already is at peak hours. This has been a favorite of my wife and myself for years. During that time, there has been relatively little change in the menu. Why change a really good... More
