"When you walk into The Grape Wine Bar and Bistro, it is both classy and inviting. The Grape is a place to relax, enjoy good wine, good food and good friends."
─ Waco Today Magazine

The Grape Wine Bar and Bistro, quietly nestled in the Ridgewood Village Shopping Center, is the perfect place to unwind at the end of a long day. We offer an extensive selection of wines from around the world, assuring you that we can please even the most discriminating palate. And to satisfy your appetite, we serve gourmet hand-prepared appetizers, entrees and desserts. Our bistro menu changes daily as Chef Jason Rolf personally selects the freshest locally available ingredients for his culinary creations.

Dinner prices vary depending on the chef's daily menu choices. Appetizers are generally priced from around $6 to $14. Our wine prices range from $5 per glass for the house wine to $160 for a bottle of our finest Cabernet. Tuesday nights are known as "dump night" at The Grape as wines opened a day or two before are sold for a 25 percent discount until a new bottle is opened. You can also make plans to drop in on Saturday nights for discounts on select bartender's choice wines.

The Grape features a cozy dining area and a richly appointed bar with built in wine display shelves stretching to the ceiling. A newly refurbished patio provides outdoor seating where you can sip a glass of wine and enjoy your dinner in an open air environment. A pleasantly appointed meeting & event room, with seating for up to 25, is also available for rent. Just let us know when you're coming, and how many will be there, and we will take care of the rest.

For your listening pleasure, we also bring you...

Live Music Every Thursday & Friday Night Starting at 7 p.m.

Next time you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, come see us! Enjoy a delectable glass of wine with friends, stay for a mouthwatering gourmet meal, and enjoy the soothing ambiance of...
