Excellent lunch, dinner, brunch. Breakfast was iffy – I have thoroughly enjoyed Wild Grape many many times for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Incredibly fresh food. Amazing soups, all year round. Great service too. however, i was mildly dissapointed with a recent breakfast stop. i was excited they opened for weekday breakfast because it's close to my work. Stopped in one morning, the restaurant was freezing cold, as if no one had been there for opening duties. And, there was one server for the entire restaurant so without being his fault, service was very slow. On weekdays, people are often in a hurry. It felt as though breakfast opening was an after-thought. Other than that, I truly love this place for the other meals of the day.
LOVE the Wild Grape – The Wild Grape is fantastic with a refreshing menu. Great waitstaff as well, my personal favorite is Eric- what a top server! The lunch menu is so delicious- the salads are light but still filling and the portobello sandwich is to die for! I would recommend any of the soups. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is because I am quite the huevos rancheros connoisseur and was disappointed that Wild Grape served fried tortillas- FRIED?! But everything else is divine. Excellent wine menu as well.
I love this place :) – this is one of my favorite places to go to in SLC. I love the atmosphere and the food is well worth the price. delicious, good music on the weekends, great small plates. very lovely service, waiters very knowledgeable. All natural organic food.. grass fed beef. well worth spending some money on. if you are looking for an intimate night out, this is the place to go to :)
Great Service and food was okay – I went to the Wild Grape with some friends through the holidays and I thought the food was good and service was outstanding. We were greeted imediately with a friendly smile by our server. She was very professional, read us the specials with enthusiasm and her attitude was nothing but positive. We received our food in appropiate time; not too fast or too slow. The food was good but not great however my friends loved their dinners. I will definetly return soon.
Delicious and lovely – I love this restaurant for so many reasons- but number one being that my husband and I had our first date here! What a fantastic place!
Itsy Bitsy.....and iffy... – PROS: Ambiance, Service, Wine List, Local Organics
CONS: Food lacked flavor, Undercooked, Overcooked, Bland.
Will have to give this one another try, .... Brunch with family this past summer. Service was absolutely magnificent, but food lacked flavor and there was nothing special. Hubby had the Huevos Rancheros- he liked the concept of the dish and it appealed to him due to it's non-traditional presentation, unfortunately it was really bland and not much packed a punch other than a bit of the Queso Fresca. I had the Egg n' Cheese sandwich and so did my other daughter...it was ok...but unfortunately we both got sick...and I mean sick...did not sit well in the tummy, which is probably why I have not gone back...but....will give a second try as my youngest had the Brioche French Toast and that was tasty...not excellent...but tasty. So instead of Brunch we will definitely try dinner...except this time only the hubby and I will go. I will agree with other reviews, it is a bit pricey (which I do not mind paying for as it is guaranteed FRESH ORGANICS), but I was a bit disappointed especially because it was "local fresh organics" yet when cooked it tasted bland? I grow my own veggies and herbs and when I cook they come through, which is why I was really happy to try The Wild Grape! Who likes to cook everyday! LOL! Look... I love FOOD and yes SLC is IMPROVING in culinary expertise and wonderful restaurants are THANKFULLY popping up left and right. But this is my HONEST opinion...the food that day was really bland and it needs to be embraced and tasted, especially if wonderful organics are the main event of the menu! :) PS a note the owner....its cool that you are replying to these reviews and hope that you take them into consideration and continue to improve your restaurant, but do not throw out rewards or your chef expertise or you that you are working with news channel programs back to the customer. That's a no...no...rewards, plaques, are just that...if you have bad reviews and unhappy customers...then they just become plaques and empty rewards and completely meaningless if you cannot retain happy customer satisfaction.
Thank you slcnyclove123 for reviewing the Wild Grape. I am sorry that not all was enjoyed. We have just transitioned into the fall menus. The chef and I have gone over your review with our staff. I would personally like to meet you when you come in. Please ask for Troy I am usually at the restaurant.
A dissapointing experience all around – My experience at The Wild Grape can be summed up in a few words: flavorless, terrible service, and overpriced. Originally, I was thrilled when The Wild Grape opened up in the space vacated by the Avenues Bakery. I was hoping for a new brunch spot to spend my Sunday mornings in. This was not destined to be that place. I've tried it twice now and both experiences were lackluster and disappointing. The service was indifferent at best: with only a quarter of the tables occupied and several servers hanging around the counter it still took 20 minutes to wave someone down to take our order. Nothing like sipping water for 20 minutes when you're jonesing for breakfast. The food was also a disappointment. Runny eggs-over-hard, flavorless bacon, coffee with that burned starbucks taste, the potatoes were just unpleasant, and while the biscuits were pleasantly fluffy the gravy was akin to elmer's glue. For the menu price I expected a much better meal.
I am sorry to hear about your experience at our restaurant as my wife and I have tried very hard to make a fun enjoyable atmosphere, with great food and service. We feel we have succeeded to this point, not without making mistakes but, learning from those mistakes. At this point we are very proud of what the Wild Grape has to offer. I will not make any excuse for what happened to you but, I do believe that we have learned from your experience and for that I thank you. The Wild Grape supports local, sustainable and organic farming. I understand you had a poor experience but it is worth giving the Wild Grape another chance.
My wife and I appreciate your support. Please ask for Troy or Jessica on your next visit. We would love to say hello.
Wild about the Wild Grape – We love the Wild Grape and think that it is one of the best resturants in Salt Lake City. We have dined at the WG about once a month since they opened. We particularly like the daily soup, only once were we disappointed.
The lamb and fish entrees are excellent. Recently the oven baked halibut was superb as was the Morgan Valley Sugo. Our son, who loves the lamb burger, thoroughly enjoyed the bison burger.
The Pt. Reyes Blue cheescake with fennel and apple slaw and pommegranite syrup was outstanding. It was so good we came back again for lunch to have another slice.
The WG is expensive, but other resturants of similar quality, Frank's, Martines, etc are also pricey. We congratulate the WG on their first anniversary and hope to dine at the WG for years to come. Bon appetit!
We appreciate your support and look forward to getting to know you.
Money Well Spent, Best food Salt Lake – Family x-mas get together
When my brother and wife arrived the only thing they could talk about was going back to the Wild Grape for dinner. The food is unique and out of this world. Simple, understandable and approachable. Why don't others follow their lead. I am vegan and was happy to find the Acorn stew served in the acorn to be right up my alley. Others were meat lovers. Bison ribeye was the feature and my son got that and said it was great! My husband had the halibut and said it was one of the best dishes he has had in a long time. My brother had the short rib and said it was to die for and his wife had the rotisserie chicken with stuffing that she also raved about.
It's no wonder why this restaurant is doing so well. I looked around and everyone appeared to be having such a good time.
Highly recommend this restaurant to all.
We appreciate you sharing your experience with us and others. I agree that the Acorn stew was a great Vegan dish. Fall is around the corner and look forward to another entree similar in taste and profile. We have several requests for the short rib to return this fall and I am sure we will see another version along with the Morgan Valley lamb shank.
Thanks again for your support
