Located in the heart of downtown Grapevine Texas is Dino’s Steak and Claw House. We visited them last night to check out their Valentine’s Weekend dining experience.
Let me just start by saying, we love the location of Dino’s and have wanted to try in now for several months. It is right on the corner of Main Street and Worth in historic downtown. The interior of the restaurant is very well laid out with a wide foyer as you enter. You can see the bar straight ahead and the seating areas on both sides and upstairs.
We loved the atmosphere. It had great lighting, music, and just a romantic feeling like we had our own little piece of the restaurant. The overall feel was great.
Now for the Valentine’s Weekend, there was a set 5-course meal offered with choice of filet mignon, salmon, or stuffed chicken for the main course. Typically, I like choices when it comes to dining, but the menu was well thought out. Maybe the best part of the meal was the first course which was a light, but delicious avocado and crab lettuce appetizer that really set the feeling for the entire dinner.
The second course was a bowl of clam chowder which was very enjoyable. This was followed by a small salad that included a spicy mix of apples, lettuce and feta cheese. For the main course, we selected the filet mignon and were not disappointed. It was cooked exceptionally.
For desert, we got a light taste of chocolate that was shapped like a heart and topped with a small scoop of ice cream.
Overall, the $75 set menu was worth the price. It was well paced as we did not even notice the two hours go by.
The only mild disappointment was at the very beginning of the evening. We love to be greeted when entering a restaurant. When you are not greeted, it leaves you wondering what you should do. We were standing there for what felt like several minutes along with several other guests before the hostess got off the phone to say hello. We really hope this was just a one time occurrence and is not the norm for this restaurant.
Everything else was very tastefully done. We were delighted with the Valentine’s experience and will be back to try other parts of the menu.
