One of our favorite spots for date night or an impromptu midweek dinner out with friends. The wines are always fun to explore, the service is great and the food is always dee-lish. We get the truffle fries every time.

We chose were delighted at the breadth of the menu; one of us chose the wine pairing menu, the other ordered a la carte with a pre-starter. The whipped goat cheese with fig jam was delicious-- but much more cheese than toasted baguette upon which...More

LOVE Grapes, and you will too! They produce miracles in a kitchen about the size of a postage stamp! Great wine, charcuterie, and specials. An outside table on a nice evening is about as close to heaven as you can get!

This was my second visit at Grapes and I left disappointed. The setting is charming and when the weather is nice, it is enjoyable to eat outside. This time, I ordered the bouillabaisse. It was good but the portion was much too small. I know...More

Nice layout and a very friendly atmosphere. Susanne took care of us as we started with some of their special Ojai 2015 Grenache - medium bodied with nice fruitiness. We had their foie gras and wild mushroom flatbread plates for starters, then the pork belly...More

Friends decided to try this place after work. Cute place, but we won't go back, primarily due to the prices. The server was fantastic. We really had great service. She explained the different wines to perfection. But it just wasn't worth the price. $16 for...More

Grapes has an excellent and reasonable wine selection by the bottle or glass. We always have the Whipped Goat Cheese with Fig Jam and the Sesame Crusted Tuna for appetizers. Also enjoy the Bouillabaisse and the Foie Gras & Duck Confit Hash. The service is...More

Don't think they accept reservations. The wait is not usually long.

I'm not the owner, just a reviewer. I don't know if they cater but if I remember correctly they do on site private parties. You get the whole place to yourself
