    Dined on 9/13/2008
    Gracie's has been on my "to visit" list for quite a well, waiting for an appropriate special occasion. The service was a little chaotic (they seem to use a team service concept, so over the evening we had about six people serving our table), but despite that the service was good. Food was quite excellent. I opened with the James Beard pan-seared gnocchi, which were everything I expect from good gnocchi: good texture, a good sear, and nice balance of flavor, nicely complemented by the shaved truffle. My 2nd course, the three preparations of pork, was nicely presented, and all three pork items were nicely prepared and very flavorful. All-in-all, an excellent meal.

    Absolutely wonderful restaurant. We were treated like royalty. Our choice was the 7 course tasting menu with wine, and every bite was superb! A party in your mouth! The wines were well chosen to go with each course, and the fois gras was to die for! Highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion (or if you have a lot of money and don't know what to do with it.....well worth the price!)

    Dined on 8/30/2008
    Tried the 7-course tasting menu. The first two courses were pretty good and agreeable. Unfortunately disappointment started right after the third course, food was either too salty or too bland. Pacing was irratic despite it was late and restaurant was not too busy. The menu composition was also problematic, imagine one is served with rabbit roll for meat course in a high end restaurant such as Gracie's. Our server was polite, but he was simply not keeping track of what was going on with our table. Even though some dishes were fine, but the overall restaurant experience did not live up to our expectation, given the price of the tasting menu.

    We are true foodies who live up in Boston, and Gracie's is our new favorite restaurant. From the freshness of the rooftop vegetables to the delicately combined flavors in each dish, everything was superb. The warm ambiance and decor, the friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, and the culinary presentation were all top notch. We will be back -- again and again.

    My note on the Open Table form requesting a special table for our anniversary along with the reservation triggered a host of good wishes for our anniversary, along with flutes of complimentary champagne and a very special secluded table for two. The service was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Not a hint of arrogance. The food was excellent and creative. We had a fabulous and memorable evening. Gracie's is a new favorite.

    Gracie's is a unique restaurant that I have been to in the past. This time we wanted to share our experience with friends who do not venture into "different" areas. They were very pleased by the cordial reception and the interior decor. Our waiter,John, was very helpful with wine choices and descriptions of the menu items. We arrived earlier than our reservation and were seated immediately. Making the online reservations let me make some requests to ensure that our guests would be comfortable. The meal was served in a timely fashion and with attention to details.All of the staff were cheerful and gracious. I'm certain that Gracie's made a hit with our guests. We will be back!

    Based on a gushing referral from a friend, I took my wife to Gracie's for her birthday dinner. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. The service was excellent - informative and personable without being intrusive. We opted for the 5-course tasting menu with wine pairings. The pairings were phenomenal - enhancing, but not overshadowing each course, which, in themselves were gourmet caliber. Also, a champagne toast for the birthday girl (and husband) to start the affair was very nice. I think we have a new favorite Providence restaurant!

    Dined on 8/8/2008
    We had the 7 course tasting menu which was fabulous! Personal preferences were taken into account and the menu based upon whatever was the best in the market that day. The food was beautiful as well as delicious. The servers were knowledgeable about the food and wine which they were serving. Note, the pace of the tastings was leisurely - all the better to savor each course and to reflect upon the food and wine pairings. Do not expect a quick night out - you will be frustrated. However, if you are looking for a night where you are NOT rushed out of the restaurant, and the food comes along as it's prepared - you'll love it!

    Gracie's was warm an inviting - very quiet scene and friendly, with unpretentious service and patrons. It was the pastry chef's birthday and a gentleman shared an 89 Chianti with everyone in the restaurant and then poured a 91 Barolo - as a wine lover - this was great, and such a nice, unexpected and pleasant surprise. I will definitely visit again.

  • For a restaurant that charges
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 7/19/2008
    For a restaurant that charges 30+ for entrees the wait staff should be on the ball. The waiter came over and read us what seemed like a riot act for what we can and can't order. The restaurant menu was changed but they offered another fish option with an added $10.00 just for halibut which I thought was ridiculous. We were told twice that what we had ordered was not available but they sorted it out and came up with something else. It took 20 minutes for our drinks and bread. When the waiter came to serve bread our friend accidentally reached for a piece in the open basket and the waiter rudely whisked the basket away as if she had been to the bathroom and not washed her hands. It was very embarrassing and uncomfortable. It was just okay.

    The food was fantastic as usual. My out-of-town guests absolutely adored the atmosphere and little extra bites Gracie's provides. Definitely a great place to bring people so they feel satisfied and content with a night out. Service was slower during this visit than last time. We had to ask someone to locate our waiter so we could order more wine. Also, the second bottle of wine we ordered was not the correct variety of grape--same vineyard and year, but it not the one we asked for and no one mentioned this when the bottle was presented. Unfortunately, I did not notice until after we'd been served. Nonetheless, the wine was fine and comparable, but definitely not what I would expect from Gracie's.

    We have eaten at this restaurant twice in the last 30 days. Overall the food is quite good. The service is a bit lacking, however. Everyone is pleasant and means well, but the food was served at an uneven pace. Silverware was forgotten. Bread was forgotten. The first time we dined it took 40 minutes to have our cocktails served. The restaurant was kind enough to not charge us for the cocktails, however, given the circumstances. Still, we enjoyed both meals and plan to return.

    I normally don't do these but Gracie's is worth talking about. It was an excellent experience -- food was great and the service was excellent, and this was during Restaurant Week -- they did a fabulous job when many restaurants do not. We also brought a preschooler and she was treated very well -- our server even thought to include her in the amuse bouche and intermezzo course, which she loved, because it was a sorbet. Little extras like that really make for a nice experience. I would highly recommend Gracie's both for the delicious food and great service -- hard to come by both!

    I originally decided to make a reservation at Gracie's during Restaurant Week because i am acquanted with members of the staff. While I had heard great things, I mainly went to check out my friends' place of work. I was, however, taken aback at how truly great Gracie's was. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and every aspect of it looks up to par from the front door to the kitchen. While a table was not ready at our reservation time, we enjoyed drinks at the bar and were seated in a timely manner. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive, and our water glases were never left empty nor were dirty plate left on the table after we had finished. Overall, my dinig experience at Gracie's was certainly one of the finer.

    Our meal at Gracie's blew me away. The service was top notch. The the room was gorgeous. The food was absolutely out of this world. I am a restaurant manager in Providence and would love to have the team that Chef Joe has working for him. Everything was absolutely spot on. My only complaint would have to be the temperature of the restaurant. It was a little on the cold side but aside from that the entire experience has me eager to get back. Come on who goes out for restaurant week (29.95/person) and still spends $200. They drew us right in and it was wonderful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/8/2008
    Perhaps our server was having a ad night, but it seemed as though her head was somewhere else or that some other aspect was overwhelming her. She took our order then returned to make sure she had it right, then almost miss-poured the first round of wine pairings and consistently had trouble with the pronunciation and geographic regions of the wines. Toward the end we had a cheese plate that waited on the table for 5 minutes before we received plates. After dessert we waited a while for our server to take the coffee order and after that she took quite some time (about 15-20 minutes) to drop the check. Again, this may have just been an "off" night for her, but it seemed to snowball. The food was wonderful and the pairings were sound.
