Diner Reviews
  • "We had the 3 course tasting menu with wine pairings. It was very, very good. The restaurant is large but the ambience is refined, cozy and intimate. The fish I had was excellent and I tried my son's duck which was out of this world. Bread was surprisingly so-so. Desserts were fantastic! I had the creme brulée. Wow! The only drawback to the otherwise perfect evening was our waiter, who seemed distracted and impatient. At a restaurant of this calibre you would expect the waitstaff to be of the highest standing; ours was not. Still, it could have been a bad night for him or maybe he's on his way out. In any case I would go back."

  • "Service oddly remiss early on, which server acknowledged, and we're not that fussy. But then another lapse or two. Did not expect this at all based on previous experience and on attention to nearby tables. Food was wonderful, as always. The place was quite busy with a reception, but that's no proper excuse for service lapses at a restaurant of this quality and reputation. Loved the meal but the experience as a whole was decidedly mixed this time, I'm afraid. Perhaps we should have told them it was an anniversary celebration...."

  • "We make a point of stopping in Providence, for the night on our way to Truro on the cape, specifically to be able to have dinner at Gracie's. It has become a beautiful tradition for us and this last time might have been the best of all. The food is superb with unusual and perfect combinations of taste and texture but it is never fussy. As my husband said, no foam was necessary to make a statement! We had the 3-course prix fixe with wine pairings. A beautiful tomato salad that I thought would be refreshing but nothing unusual, surprised me with the variety of heirloom and green tomatoes, herbs, a light sprinkle of goat cheese - just describing it does not do it justice. Everything including desserts - perfect!"

  • "We had a fantastic evening, most notably for the extra effort the staff, especially our waiter, put in to acknowledge our 10th anniversary."

  • "We were seated at a table directly next to the bathroom and behind the bussing station. Our server complained that she had too many tables, and all of the main dishes were too salty. We gave feedback about the food to the wait staff in a respectable way but nobody seemed interested. Overall the experience was one of the worst that I have ever had at any restaurant in any city."

  • " While the food was excellent, we were not able to dine the way we had planned. Each of us wanted one of the tasting menus (3 and 5 course). They would not allow us to do this, therefore we had to put together one from the a la carte portion. I can understand the reluctance to have someone ordering a 5 course tasting and their partner ordering 1 small dish from the a la carte menu. Their view is these people are trying to share a tasting menu. However, 1 person ordering a 3 course tasting menu & another ordering a 5 course does not fall into the same thinking. In fact, both parties lost. We were not able to have the dinner we anticipated and they probably lost $100 in revenue based on what we finally ordered."

  • "We did the surprise five course with wine pairing. The food was excellent but the wine was disappointing. The pours were too small to accompany each dish, and the individual selections were not up to par with the food. The quality of the wines were mediocre and unfortunately diminished the overall experience."

  • "This was our second time at Gracie's, and we enjoyed it again. You will not be disappointed by this menu where the meals are prepared just a little different. It's a great place for a special occasion, celebration or just a great dinner out!"

  • "A few weeks ago my friends treated me to a birthday dinner at Gracie's. The meal was incredible. From the friendly service to the artistic cuisine: Gracie's is among the top of it's class. I was sold when, upon arrival to our dressed up table, our server Kaitlyn, brought a complementary bottle of Presecco. I need not go any furthering explaining my obviously amazing expereince from that meal and the restaurant. I enjoy Gracie's so much I spent my last night in Rhode Island on Tuesday with a friend and indulged in their 5 course prix fixe menu, accompanied by a perfect wine pairing. Gracie's, you are my favorite restaurant. P.s. to anyone who reserves a table at Gracie's; request Kaitlyn, she's so friendly!"

  • "Had a wonderful dinner a Gracie's during a recent trip to Providence. The prix fix menu had a lot of variety and was extremely good value for the price. The service was spot on and could only be surpassed by the food. I had the duck for my entree and it was amazingly tender. The amuse Bouche and the palette cleanser between the first and second courses were both wonderful. One thing to note: reservations called into the restaurant take precedence over those made online. Not a big deal in my case. It was just me so they were able to accommodate me at a cozy high top in the bar. However, it could be an issue for a larger party."

  • "We've never been treated so well for an anniversary dinner! When we first arrived, we were wished a Happy Anniversary and then taken to a private booth that seats only 2 people and does not completely open to the aisle, so we had a lot of privacy. Then we were treated to a champagne toast, a lovely quote from Audrey Hepburn, and star glitter on the table. Sweetbreads are one of our all time favorites, so we both ordered them and they were delicious. There were a number of different small items on the plate with different textures and flavors that complemented each other - the dish was wonderful. We found the same attention to texture and flavor with my scallops and my husband's pork. Great place for a special occasion!"

  • "This was our second visit to Gracie's. The service was fantastic! The food was really good. Perhaps the best meal we have had all summer in a restaurant. We opted for the 3 course fixed price meal. The rigatoni was fantastic. I really enjoyed the gnocchi. The between course tastes were a nice touch and very delicious."

  • "Last year when I was newer to town, I asked a friend for recommendations on where to go for my birthday dinner with my husband. She said "Have you been to Gracie's? It's expensive but it's my favorite restaurant in Providence." I looked it up and thought that it looked very formal. I was more in the mood for "a scene" and decided there were still so many places to try in Federal Hill. This year-straight to Gracie's. Loved it.We chose from the 3 course pre-fix. ($40 so really reasonable). I'm a vegetarian and my husband is a carnivour and we both loved everything. The blue cheese salad was balanced and tasty and the chef's presentation of seasonal Vegetables (vegetarian entrée) was beautiful and delicious. We loved the whole experience!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
