    What a nice find!!! Cozy romantic atmosphere. Food was delicious with beautiful presentation. Service was excellent. We didn't feel rushed. It was so nice to revisit this location. This site used to be called Port O'Wind many years ago. We held our daughter's christening party here 28 years ago!!! Jerry DiCecco was the chef. We are so happy that it has been finally turned back into a great quality restaurant that we will certainly revisit and recommend.

    This place has it all. An experience everyone should try when you want to feel special. I took my wife there for her birthday and expected them to pick up her drink or desert..No ..they gave her roses at the end of the meal. Class all the way.

    Unimpressed - Had the surf & turf; crab appetizer. Lobster was bland.Steak was very good, but not medium rare as ordered. The crab was ok; my husband thought it was canned. The atmosphere was loud I could not hear across the table. Everyone was shouting above the music. It was a fancy bar scene. For $250 for a meal I was not impressed. No I won't return nor will I recommend. I expect more for the $$$.

    We took friends here for their anniversary, neither of us had been to this restaurant previously. It was one of the best evenings we've had in a long time! Food was excellent (I was craving steak, but the scallops sounded good too. Upon waiter's recommendation, i chose the scallops which were amazing.) Service was very attentive and friendly and the view is great. Only wish we could have sat by the windows. Will definitely return soon.

    Our dinner was superb. The ambiance is elegant, but a bit noisy. Some area rugs might help. The food was outstanding and innovative. The wait staff was excellent, there when you wanted, entertaining, and humorous. Nice features included ordering a glass of champagne and getting a split! Ordering glass of wine p, given a taste first and then getting a small carafe to pour as one liked. The overall experience was so good that we highly recommend it.

    We had a great time at Graceful Rose. The food and service were excellent. We dined outdoors and it was very nice. The only downside was the walk to the powder room required us to walk around the entire building and upstairs. We hear they are working on an easier route. If I were them I'd make it priority #1. The food and service made it worth the hassle but it could be a detractor for many.

    the food is great, not one complaint from anyone (which is very unusual), the waiter was very patient yet professional and kind, we were there for my grandaughter's birthday and the restaurant gave her a bouquet as we left which definitely made points with me and i've already told all my friends about this very lovely restaurant. YOU HAVE TO TRY THE SCALLOPS AS THEY ARE DELICIOUS.

    Met our Connecticut friends here for dinner. All agreed, it was a wonderful experience. Beautifully done. I had salmon, delicious A few people had a linguine with seafood and another had seared tuna. Not a good place for someone who is handicapped, as there is a flight of stairs, and no elevator. We stayed until we saw the ferry coming into dock and then took our friends back for their return trip

    After reading other reviews my husband and I were skeptical but wanted to try it for ourselves. We are so glad we did! The ambiance everyone agrees was great..so pretty inside. The service was wonderful. .I even received a bouquet of roses! I ordered a filet mignon that was cooked to perfection and so tender! My husband had scallops and lobster bisque. .both he thoroughly enjoyed. Would definitely go back and recommend!!

    I brought my girlfriend "Hobbes" here for her birthday celebration. I came here as it was recommended by TripAdvisor. Sooooooooooooo worth it. The food was amazing quality. The Thai calamari was the best calamari this non-calamari fan has ever tried. The filet mignon was tender like butter. It was cooked to perfection!!! And the romantic ambience clearly set the time for an amazing night-walk through downtown Port Jefferson. Guys if you wanna impress your gal, bring her here to Gracefully Rose. It will be money well spent!!!

    Nice Bar and interresting cocktails ! I had the watermelon-jalapeno Margarita and it was fantastic ! Food is very good but a little bit overpriced for what you get i thing. I didn't pay attention to the wine list since my friend picked the wine . Food was above average with really nice presentation but just under outstanding. I would go back there with friends and on special ocasion . Not every day since its to pricy for that .

    This is I think our 10th time coming here now and we are blown away that it gets better and better each time. The service was impeccable and the food we had was so fresh, light and tasty (red snapper and scallops) We shared the tuna tartar appetizer that is so fresh and delicious it does not even taste like fish. The Tia Calamari was light and moist with a touch of sweetness. finished off the night with a slice of heaven, there NY Cheesecake, which was delightful. Can't wait to go back again!

Kept the table clean and kept the food and drinks coming. He also asked if it was a speci occasion and we said yes and he brought over a small bouquet of beautiful mixed flowers. The food was excellent, fresh, and great for the cost! We will definitely dine here again together and with friends and family. It was truly and inforgettable night at a romantic restaurant with love quotes everywhere you look. The bar was also noticeably beautiful with beautiful lighting. It is a must see!!

    A beautiful Summer evening, good friends to enjoy, and a new experience in Dining. We were NOT disappointed. After reading some reviews, I was a bit nervous picking this Restaurant. We were, however, greeted warmly, seated outside, which is a bit of a hike, and served delicious appetizers, Italian calimari, Baby Artichokes with Garlic aoili, and crab cakes. All excellent! for dinner we had Orichetta with sausage and broccoli Rabe, the Pork Chop and all were delicious. If you are looking for a fun atmosphere, relaxing environment, and great drinks, I recommend Graceful Rose in Port Jeff. We will definitely be returning to try more Menu Items in the future. And did I mention, Valet Parking, which is helpful.

    Graceful Rose was an outstanding find. It was our first dining experience there and it won't be the last. Darren at the bar was the nicest person in the world and made us feel like royalty. There was beautiful, live, light music, which we love, in the bar area. The drinks were generous portions. The food tasted as good as it looked, and the staff was extremely accommodating. We left there extremely happy and we've been talking about our experience there all weekend long. Thank you Graceful Rose! Can't wait to see you again!

The food was delicious from the Thai Calamari, Caesar Salad, The Scallops with Lobster that my husband had and the Zucchini with Clam Sauce(instead of linguini) was amazing! The wait staff took great care of us. We will be back!

    Graceful Rose has it all - a gorgeous view, comfortable dining room, excellent attentive service, and most importantly scrumptious food and a great wine list. My husband and I dined at Graceful Rose twice in the past two weeks and both times we were greatly impressed. They had a very diverse "Restaurant Week" menu. We really liked that we were offered the option to upgrade a few menu items for a minimal charge (which we both did). Everything was cooked to perfection and the presentation was photo worthy. We highly recommend Graceful Rose! A big thank you to the Chef and Staff for an outstanding dining experience! We will be back soon.

    I just keep finding myself returning to this restaurant for various reasons. The food of course being one of them, as I am addicted to the lobster bisque and shrimp and mushroom dumplings. But beyond the food is the atmosphere especially on a Saturday night at the bar. I've had the pleasure of listening to a young songstress Leah Laurenti several times and she is not to be missed. And the Saturday night bartenders area couple of real characters to say the least....check it out!
