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!

This long time neighborhood restaurant has always had good food and service. It can be hard to get a table at peak times- but if you call about 10 minutes before you get there- it help.

We got here fairly early for lunch. The place is crowded during lunch. The quality of food is outstanding. Lots to choose from and everything is made fresh. Service was outstanding also. Great place to socialize and have a good meal.

My family absolutely love this place. They start you off with homemade bread from Picnic, the bakery at the end of the strip center. Fresh berries, nuts, jalapeno, cheese...two different types of bread. We visited for lunch and this time we had the chicken and...More
