  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."

  • "Incredible meal from start to finish. A real treat. Service was outstanding. One of the best overall experiences Ive had at a reataurant in some time. Id go back to Providence and wouldnt think twice about going here again."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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 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!"

  • "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 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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "Food was excellent and service even better-highly recommend."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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."
