Great food, attentive service, nice wine list. We enjoyed the pecan encrusted chicken and cedar plank salmon. Both cooked to perfection. Sweet potatoes and beans on the side. Yummy again and will return!

Stopped in while visiting Rice U. Sat out on covered patio--great atmosphere. Service was very friendly. Food was delivered quickly and was all pretty good. Just a nice quiet place to relax in a beautiful neighborhood. Would definitely go back.

Great establishment with soothing ambiance and a comfortable vibe. The emphasis is on a small but broad-range menu. Nice wine list, too. A reservation is recommended. We went on the recommendation of a relative of the chef.

As the title states, the Raven Grill is the hidden treasure of Houston. It has an eclectic but not huge menu which will satisfy all members of your party. Brunch and the wine list are amazing as well!
