“First time and would return”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

First time to dine and wished we had dressed more casually for outside dining just because weather was so nice. Was great anyway and we got to listen to piano player. I had tuna and husband had steak and scallop special. My tuna was good (though I actually ordered halibut and waiter miscoded it but was apologetic). Steak was good but scallops rather bland. Waiter did bring dessert to make up for mistake but wished he had asked our preference first. Brought tiramisu, which was good but wouldn't have been my choice. Next time will sit outside and try appetizers.

“Very nice”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Located in the heart of downtown Grapevine, what a cool find this was. We did not have a reservation but we were there early enough that they were able to seat us. Good food and very nice service. I recommend it.

“Awesome gem near DFW in downtown Grapevine”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Just had a great dinner there on a Wednesday night with family and a friend from out of town. Everything was terrific. Exterior is unassuming, but inside atmosphere was quiet and dark. There was a second floor balcony for additional seating and a private room which was in use for what looked like a business dinner. Dress ranged from casual to semi-formal. Service was excellent. Our waiter, Giorgio was very knowledgeable. The menu is short, but it is supplemented by several specials which Giorgio explained in great detail. Steaks are dry aged and were delicious. Good wine selections, heavy on reds as to be expected.

There were four of us, three adults and one teenager. A seafood appetizer platter for two was perfect for the whole party. The calamari were done perfectly and the crab cakes were especially tasty. I didn't get one of the scallops, but the others said they were sumptuous. The adults all had the lobster bisque. It tasted like velvet and everyone enjoyed it.

All of us ordered steaks. The seared NY strip was amazing, Great flavor and tender. It came with garlic mashed potatoes and a carrot/zucchini medley. While we were all very full, we were enticed into ordering one dessert for the table and all shared. Total bill was reasonable for wine, appetizer, soup, dinner and dessert at about $70/person including tax.

I would definitely come back here for a special occasion.

“Good Grapevine choice”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed the house salad with the pecans, cranberries and Gorgonzola. The scallops dish was pretty good.

The server was friendly, knowledgeable about wine.

Server billed incorrectly- charged everyone a mixture of items that each person ordered). We didn't say anything and worked it out ourselves. His service was too slow at the end.

Good restaurant overall.

“Mixed review”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Our party goggled Dino's before deciding to go there. A 4 out of 5 made our decision. Liked the setting, were seated right away for an early dinner, and service was great and attentive, Part of party had soup of day-Lobster Bisque and rest had salads. Mine was a mixed greens w/praline pecans, Gorganzola cheese and dried cranberries in a balsamic vinegarette was fabulous. Those who had the Lobster Bisque raved about it. Our entree orders included 2 porterhouses, 1 veal chop and 2 specials-filet w/scallops on top. The porterhouses & veal chop were ordered medium rare & came medium & one of the specials were ordered medium & came medium rare. We did not have time to have the food refired but even so my steak was still not of the caliber I expect in a $38 piece of meat. The side dish of garlic spinach was tasting but have had similar priced sides which were much more abundant. The Chilean merlot we ordered was also disappointing. My main disappointment was at these prices a restaurant should have a chef who can cook to order.
