GRAPE STREET CAFÉ ******       LOCATION: LAS VEGAS Website: http://grapestreetvegas.com/ Grape Street Café is a neighborhood restaurant located in Summerlin, designed to resemble a wine cellar. The walls are made of bricks, and scattered throughout the venue one sees wooden boxes and shelves filled with bottles of wine. The owners must be very trusting people (or maybe the bottles are glued together or worse, equipped with explosives), because theoretically anybody could just grab one of them and hide them in their bag. I know, I know, “borrowing” wine from a restaurant does not belong to the classiest of activities, but you’d be surprised what some of the Homo Sapiens species are capable of. If somebody would steal my neighbor’s plastic Gnome (a hideous monstrosity previously stationed outside her front door), then obviously there is no limit to what they would not take. Although on second thought, maybe it was just a desperate citizen deeply concerned about the area’s real estate value dropping drastically with that little fellow around? But moving on: the atmosphere created here (in the restaurant, not in my Gnome infested neighborhood) can be described as intimate and romantic, with dim lamps and little lights wrapped around the railings for decoration. The effect of this set-up seems rather minimalistic without too many adorning elements, but this simple appearance imitates the basic charm of a wine cellar all the more. Depending on the day you visit this establishment you can witness a completely different dining ambience. On weekdays the place appears a lot more easy going and relaxed, you have more space to yourself enabling you to softly utter sweet nothings to your Beloved and savor the peace and quiet. Especially Monday evenings are tempting with their offer of 50% off on all the wines. Friday and Saturday do get rather hectic, however. The place fills up quickly and since they don’t take reservations, often you have to wait about 30 minutes for a table. Patrons occupy every inch of available territory, so you don’t have much breathing room, not to mention that it can get really noisy. So if you want to share endearments with your date, you might have to bellow them out loud enough for other patrons to join in the enjoyment. If you don’t mind the hustle and bustle you will probably have a good time, but I personally prefer to visit this eatery during the week. Every time we came here we loved the food, especially the Sirloin with mashed potatoes and Asparagus, as well as the Ahi Tuna tasted wonderful. Both the sauces are simply exquisite! If you prefer heartier fare, they also offer pizza and pasta dishes, as well as some very good appetizers. As far as alcoholic beverages are concerned, they serve beer and, of course, wine. The prices featured here are not low (the entrees I usually order cost $35 each), but in the end the quality of the food is high enough to justify this expenditure. If you wish to arrive with a bigger party, this restaurant contains a small separated room off to the side where you can hold your celebration. The waiting staff members at Grape Street Café are a little bit hard to characterize. On one hand they act friendly and polite, do their job in a competent and mostly efficient way. What I miss, though, is a certain element of cordiality, a sense of humor, a little twinkle in the eye that tells me I am interacting with another human being, and not just a capable Roboton. I’m sure you will all agree that a good connection with your server can go a long way towards enhancing your dining experience. And let’s be candid here: it usually also goes a long way to enhance this person’s tip; I will most certainly not make any extra efforts to reward a mechanical creature series SVR1387BRG76BT, hydro reboot, 3 years software warranty. Here everybody makes this impersonal, detached impression and you feel treated like just another number in a long line of patrons and not the special, amazing person that you so obviously are! All in all I would still recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back there again, but for all the positive things that it offers some of the aspects could still use slight improvement.
