Diner Reviews
  • "It has been over a year since I had been to Gracie's and I cannot imagine why I have not been back more often. A last minute reservation for a Wednesday evening probably was not necessary but made things convenient. My old friend and I ate at the bar rather than a table and were well taken care of by our very competent bartender/wait person. Both of has the Potato soup which was smokey, filled with perfectly cooked shell fish and tasted great. My 2nd course was local striped bass cooked to perfection. He had a giant pork chop with all the attachents that made it wonderful. Great food, well prepared, wonderful presentation. I will be back soon."

  • "Amazingly skillful female bartenter (Laura)! Kept up with not only the patrons sitting at the bar (both food and drinks), but kept the entire restaurant going with drinks for all of the servers for tables as well! And our drinks were fantastic! Fast and accurate!"

  • "Came here for dinner. The food and service were both fantastic. Make sure you allot yourself at least two hours as things move slow... But in a good way. Each course was perfect."

  • "I always enjoy the great food at Gracie's but the main staff does not match. This recent visit, we even struggled just to just locate our server as we tried to order wine when our food was already coming out. The next time I saw him was for my check. Fortunately the bus staff worked very hard to make the evening pleasant, but there is still many small things that are missing to make Gracie's stand out, beyond the food. This common theme makes it hard to come back to."

  • "As always the good was incredible. We had ordered the five course tasting menu and split the three course dessert tasting. Everything was going well until we got our fourth course. We then waited at least half an hour for our fifth course and our drinks and it never came. They started right in on the dessert tasting. We got two courses of the dessert tasting and then our "fifth" course. We never got our final course of the dessert tasting. It kind of left a bad taste in my mouth especially since we were paying quite a bit for the meal."

  • "Gracie's has always been our special place, most often enjoying the excellent food at the bar. Our dining room experience was very poor. We were a table of 5, celebrating a birthday. I stepped out to take a call, during which time the waiter refused to serve the ordered beverages to the rest of the party until my return. My wife finally convinced him to pour the wine, but he continued to ignore requests to bring the two cocktails. Once I returned, the cocktails arrived promptly. After that, in short, it took a total of three hours to order and be served a 3-course prix fixe, then 20 minutes of waiting after we finished dessert, after which the flustered manager finally brought our check. It is the bar for us, if we go back."

  • "Chose the standard classics; not disappointed. Gnocchi were light and fluffy;ragout was rich and luscious. The duck was artfully prepared, & polenta was magnificent-so creamy. Lime anise sorbet (intermezzo)-inspired! Dennis provided perfect wine pairings. Service was excellent! The only sour note was when I arrived (on time; reservation booked months in advance, only 2 tables occupied when I came in) Hostess told me that since I had booked online, the restaurant policy was to seat me at the bar. (I wondered if this "policy" was stated because I was a woman dining alone. I told her that I expected a table, and she accommodated my request. Would love to try the tasting menu with my husband. Definitely worth a trip from Philadelphia!"

  • "This was our first time at Gracie's. We had a party of four for a business dinner with a client. I asked in the reservation for a nice quiet table away from traffic. We were sat at pribably the worst table in the restaurant, in a corner right next to the rest rooms and the wait station. The ambiance is very nice but we would not know since two of our seats faced directly into the wait station, which was both distracting and unsightly. I should have asked for a different table as the place was practically empty when we arrived. We did comment to the hostess when she sat us but she did not take the hint that we were unhappy with the table. That aside, the food was very good and our conversation was excellent, which made it OK."

  • "If you are planning a special night out, look no further then Gracie's. The ambiance and service is terrific. The food is top notch. Okay, so I am a dessert snob, and the desserts are a 7 out of 10. Otherwise you will love your experience. They make you feel very special!"

  • "This was our second time visiting Gracie's and both times we went on peak days – first on Valentine's Day, then during Restaurant Week. No matter how busy Gracie's is, we always feel like the only guests in there. The waitresses and waiters work in seamless teams attending to your every need. If your water glass drops to halfway, they're right there to refill it. Our candle blew out and they re-lit it instantly. Then there's the food. To. Die. For. It's completely different every time. We did the five-course tasting and it's like a 100% custom menu just for you. Normally I hate bacon and I would never order crab off a menu but somehow if Gracie's makes it, I know I will like it. It's the perfect place to go to experience new things!"

  • "The food was better than any place I have been in Providence or Newport. They also give you little surprises that have wonderful flavor. They deserve the stars that they have received."

  • "Very memorable experience. The food was fresh and expertly prepared. The combination of different foods and spices kicked up the meal several notches. My taste buds came alive. The service and attentive staff made one feel special"

  • "I've been to Gracie's 4/5 times. Each time I was impressed with the staff and food. This time we did the chefs tasting menu as before with 2 new guests. The restaurant this time was extremely load. The staff not as attentive and the food not up to what I've come to expect. We did the 7 course tasting menu. I was telling a freind about it today and could only remember 3 of the courses. That's how unremarkable the evening was. Our check came to $700 for 4 ppl with tip. For that much money I want to remember what I had."

  • " From the attentive service to the delicious courses of food there was no room for improvement. The highlights were the delicious melon salad with a variety of melons and tomatoes in a light dressing. The bread is fabulous, offered in a basket brought to the table with 4 different varieties from focaccia to a baguette, a honey glazed bread and a raisin variation, all were superb. Our entrees were fresh local pan seared bass and the other was a rigatoni with delicious sausage flavored sauce. . The desserts are to die for- a crème brulee that was silky smooth and a plate with a toffee flavored ice cream, a meringue, some macerated berries all artistically plated. There was no skimping even with the Restaurant Week Menu."

  • "We first went to Gracie's for my husband's birthday last year. That night we sprang for the 7 course tasting. Each plate was better than the last. This trip to Gracie's also lived up to our expectations. Beautiful presentation, attentive service, and amazing flavors. We will be back for our anniversary in September! Best meal in Providence."

  • "Consistently the best restaurant in Providence. My husband and I come here often for special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays. The service is excellent, the drinks are divine, but the food...the food is beyond delicious. Fresh ingredients, expertly prepared, beautiful presentation. It makes for a memorable evening every time!"

  • "What a pleasure! What a treat! From appetizer to coffee, the service was attentive and friendly, experienced but not stuffy. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Wonderful inventive combinations. Best duck ever! Crispy skin, delicious sauce! My new favorite in Providence."

  • "We've been to Gracie's three times so far, and each time we've been impressed with the variety and creativity of the dishes. The servers can be a bit obtrusive, but last night they were attentive without being cloyingly so. The restaurant week menu had something for everyone and was a good deal. The duck and the desserts were particularly good."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "As a matter of disclosure I should tell you we went here earlier in the week and it was the best experience at any restaurant weve ever had. The service from the time we hit the front door was unwelcoming. The waitstaff doted on the table next to us with three or four waitstaff over there ay a time while we waited for thirty minutes for our dessert. During this the "waitress" Sephanie actually walked by ourctable and flicked her hair at us three times. She literally threw complimentary homemade macaroons at us after the dessert when she delivered the bill. When we called the mamager once we got home to tell him, he offered a free meal to return. We turned it down. We prefer to remember our earlier experience there."

  • "Gracie's is in every way a comfortable place - decor, staff, ambience, food. The food is fresh, very tasty and at times creative. Just two things: the cocktails on the menu are not like your normal cocktails - they are clearly inspired by food, so sweet and savory, onion and gin meet here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, but they actually give you too much time to just sit and wait - for bread, food... I do blame myself a bit, coming from NYC, where they practically stuff the food down your throat and hope you leave after half an hour, so maybe I'm just too used to that."

  • "Came here for restaurant week. Apparently they do the same 3 course tasting menu deal year-round for only $5 more and the portions are the same. The food was excellent, but what really amazed me was how well the wine tastings were done."

  • "Every time I visit Providence I have always wanted to eat at Gracie's, and I finally made it there this past weekend. All I can say is, WOW. My boyfriend and I opted for the restaurant week menu, and everything was absolutely phenomenal. From the service to the presentation of the food, to the extra little treats the wait staff brought us in between courses...everything was perfect. My boyfriend's duck literally melted in his mouth, and my pasta entree was wonderful. We definitely will visit Gracie's the next time we're in town, and will certainly try the Chef's tasting option that they offer."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"
