The Grant House Ratings and Reviews
I was very disappointed with the grant house. I have been wanting to go here forever, and my husband decided it would be a great place to celebrate my birthday. Food was not good and service wasn't great either. It was also very slow service which was frustrating as well. I hate spending so much money and being so unhappy. I didn't eat much of my meal. I wish I had stuck to our usual choices. I am so sad about it!
It took 10 minutes to seat me even though I had made a reservation. Once seated, everything else went smoothly. It did take 35 minutes to get our salad meals, but we were in no hurry. My friend did not get her dressing, but the waiter brought her a much bigger serving of dressing, so she was pleased. The salads were fresh and delicious. Wonderful atmosphere on the deck.
Extremely disappointed on our meal tonight. It was our first and last time eating here. We waited for over 50 minutes for our entrees and there were only 3 other tables seated. Our server was almost non-existent and when our food finally came we were disappointed to say the least. My husband had the beef medallions and I had the rock fish. He ordered his meat medium and it came well done and was drowning in sauce that completely overwhelmed the dish. My fish really had no taste and had a very mushy texture as if it was previously frozen. For the prices we paid we really expected an exquisite meal. I am not sure how this place stays in business.
We went for breakfast to celebrate a belated birthday and we both had the eggs and hash browns and agreed that we have never had a better tasting breakfast anywhere. The prices on the menu were very, very reasonable which came as a surprise given the elegance of where we were. The service was outstanding and we even got a personal tour of the Grant House by the owner. We were very grateful for his time and his knowledge of the area's history. I have already recommended the Eatery at the Grant House to several people and will certainly be going back again very soon.
Been a long time fan of the Grant House, but with the change of ownership, it does not appear to be going well.
The service was okay, but the food order was very slow. It took about 45 minutes to get our food after it was ordered. We were a small party (2) and our order was simple. The soup was cold and needed to be returned.
The location is great and the property is beautiful as usual. But, I will think twice before going back.
It was quiet the night I went in for a light supper. It was relaxing to sit by the windows overlooking back yard area. Waitperson was pleasant. Food presentable, I was hoping for exceptional. Would have liked tablecloths and either candles or flowers for a polished feel. Room for improvement that I think will come. Quality of food is most important for me.
I booked this for an office business dinner. It wasn't obvious that we could find parking behind the restaurant so we scrambled a bit to park. Once in, the atmosphere had a cool historic vibe. First, we headed to the bar to grab some cocktails. We were seated quickly and greeted warmly and professionally by the waiter. We drank a variety and all were good drinks, except the staff was a bit light and they had to use non-traditional glasses for some of the drinks...no biggy. Next, we ate Calamari and the spinach/artichoke dip...both delightful, but on the small side. Four of us happened to order the beef medallions which were very good and cooked just as ordered. The crab/cheese mashed potatoes were also nice. We ate with a nice bottle of Lagana Syrah...delicious. Finally, we shared the Rhubarb Cheesecake and a couple other desserts. All very tasty...along with a dessert wine. Nice weather, nice patio, nice company...very nice time. Good job, Grant House!
Celebrating Father's Day & taking advantage of the nice weather in Vancouver. They only served from their Happy Hour menu until 5 pm on Father's Day even though this was not specified on reservation website. Out of mushrooms for their polenta & mushroom appetizer and out of hummus at 4 pm. Our waitress was very friendly; however, the other waitresses on staff could only glare as we brought along our granddaughter for early outside seating & it was Father's Day. Not very kid friendly environment even though they have high chairs so it's not restricted or discouraged completely.
Although the food and ambiance were good, and the front-of-house staff friendly and accommodating, the service was just a little bit off on our first visit to this establishment. Our waiter mentioned that they were under new ownership. They didn't have the wine we ordered, but did apologize and offer a nice substitute for the same price. However, my starter salad took over twenty minutes to arrive (and only after I had reminded the server), our entrees also took a long time, as well as my dessert (and the waiter again had to be reminded). He completely forgot my coffee. He did remove the dessert from the bill, although we hadn't asked he do so, and was pleasant. We will give The Eatery at the Grant House another try on a different occasion, and hope they've "worked out the kinks" in the service.
The menu is limited, consisting mostly of traditional American comfort food dishes, with a few politically correct "health" items like kale and quinoa tossed in. The food is well prepared if not inspirational. The service was glacial. The interior is a charming rendition of someone's notion of what a mid 19th century house might have looked like. The prices are very reasonable. It appears to be very popular with the Vancouver locals, with a convenient location close to downtown in the midst of a lovely National Park Service maintained historic district. For fine dining, I'm afraid a trip across the bridge to Portland is still required.
Always a pleasant experience, the Grant House is a local treasure. The authentic historic house, verdant setting, interesting food choices, excellent service, all make this a top quality place I consider my reliable fall-back for a casual visit or a special place to show visitors.
I took my wife for her birthday date. We have been liking forward to visiting since we moved to Vancouver over a year ago. We missed going under the old owners but the new ownership certainly hasn't lowered the quality we always heard about. The service was great even though we had someone still in training. We sat on the porch and watched the folks walking the row. The only thing we found funny was being able to hear the crowd from whatever game was happening at the high school a street over. Humorous to us as it juxtaposed against the setting of the restaurant.
To be completely honest we have gone here before and had awesome food but this was for my husband's birthday and I understand the kitchen went down for a little bit but they said we would wait 20 minutes for food we ended up waiting over an hour for food and having young kids at the table makes it really hard for that plus our food tasted absolutely horrible my meat tasted like it sat out too long I had crab shells in my crab mashed potatoes and the rock fish tasted horrible as well the only thing we ended up leaving and liking was the appetizer. Was a little disappointed for how long we had to wait for food that we didn't get some type of a discount for our patients and having not so good food so very disappointed for this visit. Also we were not even offered a dessert and for my husbands birthday that was not ok. I had to ask for his dessert and waited even longer for that
Went for lunch with my friend. It's in a cute historical house. We have a window seat and a wonderful pastoral view. The quiche however, was a big disappointment.. two thirds of it was potato crust and it was dry and bland. The grill sandwich my friend ordered came out blackened to the point it's almost inedible. The waitress seem to think it's normal when we point it out n didn't offer to redo.
While visiting Fort Vancouver I spotted The Grant House on Officer's Row. The historic home, now a restaurant, is beautiful and I really thought it would be a great dinner experience. However, my wife and I were in for a disappointment. We were seated on an enclosed patio with beautiful views of large trees and lush greenery. We asked our server what wine she suggested. Well...she was unsure. So we ordered a local bottle and soon began to feel hurried. Rather than get a sense we wanted to relax and enjoy our dinner experience, she poured the wine and immediately asked about our order. We let her know this was our first visit and tried to ask for menu suggestions. Well...everything is good and then she was off! I ordered the pork loin and a caesar salad. Although it sounded good, the salad was very small and no ground pepper was offered. The pork was waaay overdone and quite tough. Not one time during our dinner did our server offer to fill our glasses, and every time we saw her she was in a hurry like a short-order cook. Finally after dinner, nope, we don't want dessert. And nope, we'll get coffee back at the hotel. Really disappointed and certainly a missed opportunity to make a positive connection with out of town visitors.
Although I thoroughly recommend seeing this beautiful home and the surrounding 1830's structures, I unfortunately cannot recommend the resturant. Maybe they were understaffed or possibly there were problems in the kitchen. But...ultimately it goes back to the old adage...You have only one chance to make a first impression.
Although we had reservations, we were seated at a small table inside the bar. The room was quiet and our server was nice. The food was mediocre and for what it is, I find it a bit expensive. The restaurant itself is really historic and interesting. We used to love the food here, but something has happened in the past year and the food is just so-so now. Probably won't go back for awhile.
They were so accommaditing in seating us. We couldn't decide where to sit and they worked with us. We were all grateful. The food was excellent and the service perfect. We loved the Historic atmosphere. The opentable reservation site was very helpful as I could make my reservation in the evening.
The Grant House is by far the best restaurant in Vancouver and certainly the equal of any I have experienced in Portland. The staff are warm, welcoming, and totally competent; the ambience is relaxing and fashionably old-fashioned, and the food, always superb.
