Grapeseed American Bistro is a casual bistro that matches great food and wine together. With anywhere from 80 to 100 wines by the glass and approximately 325 bottle listed, we cater to the novice wine lover and to the experienced. We start with a bottle of wine and pick out the characteristics and nuances of the wine and then award winning Chef Jeffrey Heineman creates a menu item to highlight the flavors of the wine. So come in and relax, have a taste or a glass of wine and try something on our ever-changing menu.

"Charcuterie is a nice appetizer choice, though serving was a bit skimpy on rabbit terrine. Fried oysters were delicious but seemed to be missing the bacon. Cod particularly fine as main course. We skipped dessert. Suggestion: bite-size desserts for those whare are fully satisfied but want to end on a sweet note."

"Worth a detour. Reasonable selection of wines by the glass. Appetizers are good, especially egg poached in red win over mushrooms, and country pate, but wait staff needs to guide diners to appropriate mix of first and second courses given richness of the offerings. I would have been better off with a salad and then pork shank vs. egg appetizer + shank. No room for dessert, though the beignet sounded enticing.
Bread -- pain d'epi {?} is exceptional.
