This was my boyfriend and I's final dining experience at The Grape before it closes, which is incredibly sad. It was, as usual, great. He got the red fish and I got the shrimp and risotto, and a cup of mushroom soup for each of us. We will miss it.

After enjoying this restaurant since 1974 was looking forward to a typically wonderful last experience before they close. The only flaw was the waiter who was quite awful. Ignored us, was almost rude, and made it clear he didn't care about us. Very disappointing and not at all up to the Grape's standards.

I’m still in shock that the Grape is closing. This is my favorite restaurant in Dallas. I love this restaurant. Megan was awesome as always. Still sad. Very sad.

Our first date was 30 years ago at The Grape. I had the same entree that I had that time- tournedos of beef with pommes frites. Wonderful attentive waiter. Great food. Terrible that it all comes to an end soon.

When my friends and I heard The Grape would be closing on October 10 we made a dash to make reservations. This happens to be a favorite restaurant to us all. We did not want the opportunity to pass us by to enjoy at least one last fabulous meal.

As always the food was impeccable. The girl that waited on us however made the experience very disappointing. She was not only abrupt but very rude. It was clear from her demeanor that she could care less about her job or about making this a memorable event for clientele of The Grape.

I do hope that The Grape will live on but best without this particular employee.

What a friendly and welcoming dining experience! We had the artichoke and mushroom soup to start with their bread and butter. We both had the burgers which I think lived up to the reputation! Finished with the lemon hot buttered rum cake which was delicious, I just wish it was a bigger portion! Everything was great, will definitely be back before our next anniversary!

I’ve been going to The Grape for years and was able to introduce my significant other tonight to my favorite restaurant. We celebrated my birthday, along with my son. It was delicious and special, as always. The Grape will always be close to my heart and my favorite restaurant in Texas. Thanks for another wonderful meal and evening!

The Grape is always our "Go To" for special occasions, and when we have out of town visitors and we want to show off the great part of Dallas (ie East Dallas, Lower Greenville) that most visitors never see. As always, The Grape hit it out of the park!

The beef tenderloin was delicious and tender with a great port reduction sauce. The mushroom soup was delicious. Frites were a bit over salted otherwise a perfect meal.

The Mule cocktail was delicious. Would order again. Will be back.

The service was great very nice and helpful with menu option and details. Very clean and intimate atmosphere. We got the baked brie and Braised Lamb Tartines for appetizer. Our table ordered Day boat dry scallops ( cooked perfect), Coal Miners pasta (lovely sauce), and Bistro steak frites ( so tender and buttery). Desert topped of the fantastic meal with Lemon Hot Buttered Rum cake ( everyone's favorite) and Dark chocolate terrine ( good but not as good as everything else). Defiantly going back very soon!!!!

There is a reason why The Grape has been in Dallas as long as it has - it just never disappoints. The atmosphere is intimate and warm, the service is superb, and the food is always delicious. It isn’t an innovative menu, in my opinion, but when you want to gather with friends and catch up on life and enjoy good food and nice conversation, you won’t go wrong.

Food was actually quite delicious and our waitress was great but we were there about 15 minutes early and were made to sit at the bar which we are happy to do. It took the bartender almost 10 minutes to acknowledge us and get us a drink even though there were only two other people sitting at the bar. The hostess was not very accommodating either.

Great dinner-Would have been better if meal for my wife had been done correctly-Asked for no meat, came with meat. At last her meal arrived and we enjoyed our dinner. Waitress offered a free dessert for the error. we were OK with everything up to this point. Ordered dessert and a cappuccino. We shared the dessert. The check was dropped off and still no coffee. Asked to have that removed from check. I usually tip 20%, but not this time. Told the waitress how disappointed I was with her service, didn't feel like talking with the manager ,so left.
