The Raven Grill is a nice neighborhood spot. I enjoy coming in with friends and family for dinner and drinks frequently. The cedar plank salmon is one of my favorites! It is a must have if you like salmon. And the wine selection offered only seems to get more interesting and varied each time I visit. The only thing lacking... More

Been to Raven Grill four times, had a different entre each time and totally enjoyed each meal. Interesting is the Sampler Platter which has about 7 different items, all good, and a lot of food (get a doggie bag). Fried oysters are one of my favorites. Nice desserts (if you still have room). Can be crowded on Friday and Saturday... More

Raven grill is one of my favorite dinner spots in Houston. The food and the service are always fantastic. The Raven tacos and pecan crusted chicken are my favorites. The crowd is slightly older and seems to be busiest around 7 pm. We usually go around 8 pm and have no trouble getting a table.

We had 11 people celebrating a 50th birthday ages 70 to 12. Everyone loved their meals without one complaint. Great appetizers: Tower of Onions. Ceviche, and assorted salads. Many cuts of steak prepared many ways, delicious hamburgers, and salmon on a plank that was scrumptious for the main course selections. The birthday boy had a decadent chocolate cake to share...

I ate at the Raven Grill with my business team. The outdoor eating area was well suited for our group and was well ventilated and remarkably cool for an 81degree night. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. We had a variety of meals and everyone was very pleased with their selections. The pecan crusted Tilapia was excellent.

I got the pecan crusted chicken with green beans and grilled sweet potato--amazing! Great atmosphere. The bar is sort of secluded from the rest of the restaurant area just enough to not make either seating sections awkward. Great lighting, decor, and service. Quaint little fancy place!

I've been going to The Raven Grill for several years and the two most important consistencies are the quality/taste of the food, the excellent service and the polite and effective handling of small mistakes. Dining here is a no-brainer.

Place is nice enough. Service is good. Even though the menu does provide a lot of options, nothing really caught my eye. To be fair to the place, I have no specific complaints. Every thing is ...fine.

Location is right in the neighborhood. All the homes have a lot of characters so worth a quick walk in the neighborhood if during the day. We made reservation for Saturday night and they were very busy. Food was great and there was no complaint from anyone in our group. They were very accomodating to kids. I have the Cedar... More
