Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is decorated in warm tones with golden colored tableclothes that make it appear lit in candle light. Wait staff is polite and very informed. The food is excellent and plated to look as good as it tastes. You feel relaxed and pampered. Large menu and the pre fixe offers a great deal. We went for a birthday and after asking if there was an occasion, they gave us all a glass of champagne, decorated the table with silver star confetti and made sure the person with the birthday got a dessert treat with a candle. No goofy singing, just a nice gesture. The palate cleansers and bites they offer between courses really make the experience special and all is delicious."

  • "Went here for restuarant week. Excellent food and great portions. Also decided to spend a little extra to have a bottle of Gracie's wine, which you can't buy anywhere else. It was amazing and so worth it."

  • "My sister and I tried this restaurant during a special promotion. I had heard many wonderful things, and I was not disappointed. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It was definitely gourmet dining but unpretentious and not stuffy. The food was fresh and flavorful, unique flavor combinations but delicious. I had the sea bass as my main entree which had a great sear and was cooked to perfection! My sister tried the duck, crispy skin yet tender and juicy. We quite enjoyed the "chef surprises" between courses. The dessert was to-die-for. The creme brulee was yummy, but the real star of the evening was the peach semifreddo. A definite must-try for everyone. I will certainly be adding this restaurant to my rotation."

  • "It was the first time my husband and I visited Providence. We celebrated our 5th Anniversary at Gracie's and it is Providence's gem! The best place in the whole city! We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was an awesome experience. Even my husband, who is not gastrically adventurous, enjoyed the experience immensely. The service was wonderfull. They explained every dish and wine, which is very important when doing a chef's tasting. They also seemed very enthusiastic about their job and the food they were serving. Would highly recommend. Be sure to get a reservation as this is a highly desirable restaurant and all seats were taken."

  • "My wife and I have been coming to Gracie's for years and have always considered it our special place. Unfortunately, the whole night was very disappointing. We had to wait for fifteen minutes for the valet to return to his station when we arrived. There was a parade on the street so I understand it was difficult for him but the management should have anticipated the situation and had an extra valet on duty to address the issue. Our service throughout the evening was very slow. We ordered the five course pairing and waited at least thirty minutes between courses. The waitress brought our wine up to fifteen minutes before the food each time. Even the food was not up to their usual standard. I'm sorry to say we won't return."

  • "We had a fantastic meal here! I had heard good reviews of Gracie's and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Thanks to our server's advice, we chose the 5 course chef's tasting menu. It was amazing! Every course was a wonderfully balanced and just the right size. I would recommend Gracie's for a special birthday, anniversary or other happy event. It is worth the trip to Providence!"

  • "The food was great, with lovely little amuse bouche between courses. Also, they had creative and fun alcohol-free cocktails and knowledgeable and friendly servers. It is in a very attractive downtown setting, with prix fixe, a la carte, and special tastings menus."

  • "Far and away one of the top restaurants in Providence, if not the best. We just kept smiling during our whole meal."

  • "On this visit to Gracie's everything was excellent. The service was attentive and professional. The food was just superb. I enjoyed my green salad, the bolognese pasta was to die for. YUMMY. The best I have every had. Seriously. It had a flavor I couldn't figure out and I think it was Anise. Loved it. The dessert (crembrule) was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I went to Gracie's for my 3rd time this past weekend, and while it was good--it was not great. The first 2 visits had been incredible, but this time the service was slow, the food was a little plain, and the portions were small. Not worth the price, but not quite ready to write them off yet."

  • "Service is friendly & attentive. Lively flavor pairings and vibrant presentations make for a memorable dining experience."

  • "I took my friend for her birthday and as always Gracie makes it special. She had the maple cured salmon and I had the ramp tagliatelli for an appetizer. When we were finished we both looked at each other at the same time and said we were actually depressed that it was all gone! My arctic char was so perfectly cooked with the perfect amount of leek cream. The creme brulee was equally as yummy. Gracies is the best. Rachel and Jessie who waited on us were great. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "We had a great time and really enjoyed the food and service. A prix fixe meal each was enough food for the two of us, and we loved each of our options."

  • "We found Gracie's about a month ago on a whim and even though there were no tables available it was such a nice atmosphere we decided to eat at the bar. Delicious farm to table food, a friendly bartender who let us know that the Waterfire was on that night, attentive waitstaff, romantic ambience. This past weekend we tried it again and invited another couple to join us hoping it would be just as good. We were not disappointed. At the last minute I called to add a 5th person and it was no problem. I loved the dining room, the service was great and everyone raved about their dishes. We all went with the 3 course prefixe. Atlantic Char, beet salad, lemon meyer pudding cake dessert. Perfect portions and great cocktails!"

  • "Exquisite food is offered here, which you wouldn't find anywhere near. The service is very attentive, environment is comprehensive. When you visit that place, you wouldn't want to be any there else."

  • "Excellent service and the food was superb! A truly memorable occasion with stars on my table! Our waiter Dennis was very skilled and answered all our questions. Scallops were the best I have ever had, my husband had the Arctic char and it was very moist, our daughter had the rigatoni with spicy sausage and fresh mozzarella. The three course fixed menu menu is recommended. Gracie's is wonderful and wish it was closer to where we live! Enjoy, and dine wonderfully well!"

  • "Elegance meets New American--that's not the usual combination. We had the five-course tasting menu with the wine pairings, so this review does not apply directly to the printed menu. My preference in New American is for dishes that are unusual in the "I never would have thought of that" sense, without being weird for the sake of being weird. Gracie's succeeds brilliantly. The food contains unexpected combinations that work beautifully. The service was at the formal end of friendly, but still friendly, and very attentive. The ambience was quite refined and pleasant. All in all, an ambitious restaurant that succeeds in meeting its ambitions. Quite expensive for the menu we chose; otherwise a bit more moderate."

  • "We loved the food, the place, the location, the atmosphere, the customer service. I loved the little delicatesses between meals and the little present in my car when I left! Also, I got a Thank you letter a few days letter hand written from the restaurant! That was what I call attention to detail and caring about cuatomers, even the ones that don't live in Providence like me :)"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The meal we had was wonderful, but the main reason we picked Gracie's was for the chef's tasting menu. We were unaware this was not available for individual purchase. My husband and I would both have to get it, and I am a picky eater. Other than that the food was very good and the atmosphere was also delightful."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "We had the chef's five course tasting menu which changes daily and the diners do not know in advance what will be presented. All the food was excellent and beautifully presented. The wait staff was professional and very knowledgeable. We were celebrating our anniversary, and were given a special table as well as a complimentary glass of Cava when we arrived."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Gracies is our favorite restaurant. The food, service, and ambience are always impeccable. Sorry to see the menu changed though. Maybe it's just this time of the year when local produce is not quite what it will be in the next few months. Seemed to be a bit more limited than usual."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food was not memorable and the does not, in my opinion, deserve its high ratings. The portions were small and the main course overly salted. The wait staff on the other hand were very good and great for a business dinner."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I've been a Gracie's Groupie for years now, there's very little they've ever made that wasn't one of the best things I've ever had. Try their Creme Brulee if you've ever wondered what vanilla flavored silk would taste/feel like"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "One of the best in Providence. Every thing was perfect, our waitress (Lydia) was outstanding. We did the Chef's tasting. It wasn't just something to eat, it was art. I recommend it to everybody that isn't on a budget."

  • "This Providence gem just keeps getting better and better. Food, service, ambience are all top notch. Pricy but completely worth it."

  • "We celebrated a friend's birthday here and the experience was unforgettable. The entire staff conspired to make the evening magical. The wait staff and hostess were so relaxed and friendly--no uptight pretense here. The food was tops, absolutely tops, and the decor and ambiance just sublime. My husband and I are more than a little persnickety as diners, but everything here exceeded our expectations. "

  • "On a recommendation chose Gracie's for a special Anniversay dinner. As soon as we arrived the staff made us feel special, from the warm greeting to the special table we were led to which was decorated with glitter. We chose the 5 course Chef's tasting with wine pairings and our dedicated two person waitstaff attended to all our needs. Each course was a delightful surprise and just scrumptious. It was a memorable experience and a real treat!! "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "If you love to be surprised...then go to Gracie's and order the Chef's tasting...there are two options: 5 or 7 course with or without wine. For those that want to know exactly what they are eating or the whole table doesn't want to participate, there is a Prix-fixe menu of 3 courses or you can order ala carte. The Chef's menu was fabulous! They first asked if you had any food dislikes or allergies! What presentations...each course brought by a different server and explained fully. The portions sizes were very generous. We had a salad of baby carrots, two or three kinds of crispy mushrooms. Followed by a beet cannoli; poached cod, a huge lamp chop and two desserts. Great service! There's more but go experience it! "
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We opted for the la a carte and 3 course fixed prix. The beet salad and foie gras were wonderful. The rigatoni dish has a nice spicy flavor and the scallops were excellent. Unfortunately, we found both the carrot cake and the chocolate cake to be a just a tad dry. We weren't expecting that. Other than that, it was a great dining experience and we will definitely try it again and maybe go for one of the tasting menus."

  • "we celebrated an anniversary here. the atmosphere was warm, lots of sunlight during day and viewing of the outside in the evening..- would have loved to b hearing soft music or piano in the background instead of the conversation right next to us. I found it a bit noisy not so Romance but still a great choice for the nights event.The window tables are much to close to one another-we can practically touch the next party! but aside from that; ALL the staff were exceptional-the attention was always on the customer! we like that! and no, we R not special. The wine selection was Superb! We choose a 5course meal w/our own wine and I must say I was most delighted as was my boyfriend. "

  • "Our anniversary dinner was perfect from the moment we walked in the door. The service was attentive without being intrusive and all the little touches during the evening were wonderful. Food was perfectly prepared and presented beautifully. Best fine dining experience in Rhode Island."

  • "We've had great meals every time we've been to Gracie's. The food competes with the service for the restaurant's best quality. Both are as good as any anywhere. The menu changes, but the experience never does. We love the place."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "It was my first time. The place was great. The food was excellent, though a bit contrived. Service was very good except for the fact that multiple servers kept stepping on one another's toes. Three people offered us a choice of water. Two people brought us bread (at almost the same time). Nothing I can really complain about, but I noticed."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Gracie's was good but not great. Appetizers were fine (warm asparagus soup was excellent), but main course skate needed more lemon juice and capers to spice up an otherwise bland presentation. Wife's duck was not quite crisped enough. Service was interesting as knowledgable bartender ended up as a part-time waiter as the evening wore on. Overall we enjoyed Gracie's but will probably not return. "

  • "We have frequented Gracie's for years now and they never disappoint. This last visit was a special occasion for a family member. I was a bit disappointed that the hostess forgot to mention the occasion to our waitress and no mention of it was made. Next time, I would mention a special occasion when making the reservation!"
