    I went to The Pink Grouse with my supervisor for Restaurant week in Charlottesville. The first thing that caught my eye was the space. It's beautifully decorated with a modern, funky feel. The server was very attentive, always smiling and allowed us to sit for awhile having a cocktail before ordering. We had 3 courses, and each one was just as good as the previous course. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The cocktails were expertly crafted, we never felt rushed, and it was an overall excellent experience. I highly recommend this place. Restaurant week or not, I will absolutely return!

    Best from a chef! A foodie’s delight! Every plate from Q Salad to Branzino and Short Ribs and desserts were impeccably prepared and presented. Thank you Chef Chuck Adcock. Table service was proper, welcoming and attentive, everyone pitched in. (DIners can disregard the ambiance, but do go for the fantastic food and service.) Food and Beverage Manager Stephen Kelly, thank you for evolving Pink Grouse. This was a great experience.

    Just a terrible experience shared by othered we have spoken to. Menu posters here on web site was not even close to the menu we were presented. If you have specifics good needs as I do you should not go here unless you see the menu in advance e. We were having a cocktail at rooftop bar( very nice by the way) and should have eaten light fare menu there. Serve sadly was inept, the young waiter was clearly out of his comfort zone. The barumendi was good as were the desserts. The rest was a fiasco. Ordered gazpacho “to share as a starter” my exact words. Had to order smoked trout app as my main as there was bothering else in the very limited menu I could eat. He brought the fish dinner and trout and we asked about the gazpacho. Said he was going to bring it now. We declined it. Supposed to be crust nopales with trout but the “ran out”. I asked for bread or crackers. Finally came out with some nice grilled bread for which we were charged $4, wonder how much the crispy nopales would cost as they were not deducted from the price. Only two desserts on menu. We had both as we were starving. Both were very good. Our bill before tip was $180 But we had three rounds as it all took so Long.

    There was a large group of drunken college kids who gradually took over the courtyard through the dinner and the service was incredibly slow/inattentive (I overheard that maybe someone had called out unexpectedly leaving them understaffed so this may not be the case always). The food was mediocre, especially given the price.

    We showed up on time and waited as the hostess was on a call. We waited as she explained every nuance of every dish on the menu to the caller, even pausing to walk to the kitchen to ask questions of the staff. Numerous times she could’ve easily asked the caller to hold so she could seat us and get back to her call. After 20 minutes of this we decided to leave and go to another restaurant nearby where we were greeted, seated, and taken care of by a much more courteous and attentive staff.

    The drinks were outstanding, the food flashed greatness but the risotto was cold with the consistency of glue and the service was absolutely awful taking 1.5 hours from order to entree and a waitress who might have been the slowest most catatonic person alive.

    Pleasant and attentive waitress. We were a party of four. Each ordered a different brunch dish. Eggs Benedict with salmon instead of pork belly, biscuits and gravy, quiche and the smoked salmon bagel. All dishes were delicious.

    I went for the special Restaurant Week menu. The three oysters were so fresh and tasty examples of three types of preparation. The pork cop was hearty and the gluten-free chocolate dessert was rich. The service was quite pleasant and attentive and the dining room is modern and attractive.

    No. Just no. I’ve had better meals out of emergency room vending machines. I understand that you might not get the most expensive offerings during restaurant week, but I would think that would be the time when a restaurant would try its best to bring in new local patrons. Unfortunately, Pink Grouse failed right out of the starting gate. Three itsy-bitsy oysters for my appetizer, and a doughy “fritter” for my wife — really? I’m not sure what they served my wife for her entree, but it wasn’t coq au vin. My schnitzel was pretty good, but the baby potatoes and green beans were significantly undercooked. Dessert - meh…. By that point, I just wanted to pay the bill and leave. On the plus side, the hotel and restaurant is beautiful…but $20 for a martini? In Manhattan or Chicago, sure. In Charlottesville — no. Sorry, Pink Grouse…I can’t imagine darkening your very lovely foyer again.

    Food was very nice indeed. Drinks and wine selections also and fairly priced. Like your Barboursville selections. We had white bean soup, arugula and apple salad, Muscovy duck, swordfish, all delicious and nicely presented. Only drawback was the plating for the duck which was not piping hot and should have been, plate was not warmed enough. Emma did an outstanding job serving as hostess AND waiting on all the tables. She was polite and attentive throughout the meal and I did not want to address the lack of heat on the entree because she had her hands full. None of us four guests had dessert but I tried your regular coffee - it was excellent. We will be back and will recommend Grouse.

    Both entrees were lukewarm, “grilled bread” served with the mussels was stale and cold, “grilled halumi cheese” on the salad was actually cold, risotto was undercooked and crunchy, service was very poor bc server was new and had inadequate training and no support from management to help her. All around super terrible experience!

    Saturday brunch: few people eating at 0930. Bloody Mary was good but came plain; no olives, celery, etc. omelet was cooked nicely, but potatoes were a tad undercooked. I do not like to stare at a blank wall even when with someone. I know I could have asked to change but this was a table for two and did not want to take up a four top. Service was top notch.

    Same deal as the other time we ate there. You can see the kitchen and the angry chef. The two seater tables on the side near the window have chairs 2 far apart so that you can't hear each other, the staff and wait staff seem a bit lost, the food was very good. This time we made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner. We kept calling to see what the menu was--for almost 2 weeks and no one would return our call. We wanted to know how they were doing Thanksgiving dinner so that, if it wasn't enough like turkey, we could go else. They finally got the menu straight a couple of days before. Since it was probably the only open restaurant downtown, they could have had a big crowd. But it wasn't because who would go to a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner that doesn't say anything about it on the website, etc. Yet the food was good.

    While in Charlottesville for an alumni event at UVA, I was excited to try this venue and support what looked like an experience that would rival some of the loveliest restaurants where I live in NYC. OMG was I wrong. It's beautiful inside, but unless you are up for the slowest service and the most underwhelming food ever, avoid the Pink Grouse. My date and I waited 45 minutes for our drink order and sat with empty water glasses for the most of that time. We almost walked out. Although the waitress blamed the bartender for epically slow service, that didn't explain how long it took for our food to come. When it did, it was the most average fair I've had in a while. I never leave reviews like this, but I also have never had such a terrible experience - even the tables next to us were complaining and they got their drinks and food before we did. To add insult to injury, everything is priced so high, it makes the disappointment even more infuriating.
