I was taken to the Gravenstein Grill for my birthday. I am vegan and there was plenty of delicious, plant-based dishes for me. I had a cocktail called Rosemary's Baby (or something like that) which was delicious and strong. The food is really good and...More

The atmosphere is beautiful highlighted by sound of the jazz guitarist who was playing that night. The salmon was exceptional and the steak was seasoned perfectly. One of the owners, Brandon, stopped by our table making sure everything was to our liking. The staff was...More

So if you have been following me here on Trip Advisor, and other sites I write in, you know that I'm big on "hole in the walls" more than I am in higher end places to eat. However, this was for a special occasion; my...More

Hi Roseleaf, Thank you for the feedback. We're absolutely looking at some noise suppression for the main dining room, and will likely have things in place over the next few months. We're glad you liked the food, and now that the weather has turned nice...More

This place - so disappointed! I read great reviews, but it felt like eating in a hotel. So average and corporate, and service was mediocre, too. We came for brunch and couldn't get the waiter's attention, all of our food came at the same time,...More

Hi MsMac, I'm sorry to hear that was your experience here. The last thing we'd want is a corporate/hotel vibe here... we're completely owner operated, and this is a 100% independent restaurant. We'll make sure to talk to our brunch service staff, because it's totally...More

Wanted to like this place, as it is close to where I live and there seems to be good reviews. The ambiance was fine, busy night, but not overly loud. Took my cousin and her friend, who was visiting from NY. After ordering appetizer's and...More

Hi Joseph, We'll have a talk with Tom, because what you describe is not at all the service we strive to deliver. If you'd like to give more specific feedback on what you disliked about the food, my email address is brandon@gravensteingrill.com. We'd also like...More

We picked this restaurant for meeting up with friends. Menu selection was varied and fairly priced, with the corkage fee of $15 favorable to patrons. The atmosphere is clean and modern - a little too sterile for my taste. The outdoor area was a more...More
