Graduation dinnerMy family and I came in for graduation dinner on Sunday 5/18. Everything was outstanding. The table received a complementary toast with a splash of bubbly upon arrival. 2 members in the party made modifications to their entrees, & the kitchen, as well as Eric out server, were more than accommodating. The wine list is reasonably priced, & has a very nice, well organized selection. Our service team was awesome; never skipped a beat, & made the evening a very memorable experience. This was the perfect way to say goodbye to Providence. My ONLY, & I mean only, complaint is that I wish the vegetable course was bigger; it was delicious & beautiful, but smaller than expected- BUT the foie gras was the biggest piece of foie that I've ever seen5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!We had the 7 course tasting menu and loved each one. The pairing of the foie gras with grilled apricot was perfect and the soft shell crab was crispy on the outside while remaining succulent inside. The lamb was buttery and melt in your mouth. Service was smooth and attentive without being intrusive. There were a couple times when we started to wonder where the next course was but then there they'd come. A great choice for special occasions but you need to make a reservation early.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was perfect.We went to Gracie's for a before theater dinner. Although the theater experiecne was forgetable the dinner at Gracie's was excellant. We enjoyed our time there and they did everything they could to make it an enjoyable experience for us.
The place was not crowded in the earlier part of our time but even when it filled up the noise level was excellant. We did speak to the table to our side but it was a pleasant experience and not intrusive for either of us.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealEach course was outstanding! Best creme brûlée I've ever had. Excellent service.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMvery niceOverall very nice place. Food was great. Service was also very good. The only disappointing thing was that they have a pri fix menu or a tasting menu option which was interesting and intriquing, however the server after explaining the menu failed to mention that if someone in your party want to choose a tasting all members must choose a tasting. I get it from a timing standpoint however 2 members were interested in the tasting and 2 were not so they had to rethink their options after already looking forward to their choice.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and ambianceThe food was amazing, the waiter was great and the atmosphere is fun and special. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu which was outstanding. Our only issue was with our reservation. We arrived on time for our 8 p.m. reservation and were told our table wasn't ready yet and to go to the bar. We enjoyed a glass of wine and waited. And waited. We finally asked what the status was on our table and were told that somehow another party took our table when they "couldn't find us." I am not sure how they couldn't find us when we were seated in the middle of the bar we were told to sit at. Regardless, they found us a table at 9:30, and picked up the tab for our bar bill. Not happy about the late meal, but would try again for the great food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGracie's does not disappoint-Gracie's does not disappoint- lovely attention to detail with combinations of flavors that always delight5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWords do not do justice!You really have to experience Gracie's for yourself! Food, excellent service, great wine list! Went for Mother's Day dinner, now it will be a tradition! Gracie's IS THAT GOOD!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGracie'sIt was an amazing dinner from beginning to end. It was so fresh and delish! The whole place, clean as a whistle and has a great ambiance. I would go back tonight if I could! Wonderful....just fantastic food.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTastingThe 5 course tasting menu was fantastic but pricey. Worth it for a special occassion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodgasmAwesome blending of flavors I would not think to try on my own. The 5 course was outstanding! Stepped slightly outside of my comfort zone in allowing the chefs to choose our dishes, but it was well worth it. A+5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's all about the tasting menuGracie's standard menu is wonderful. But, when you let the kitchen get creative with the 5 or 7 course tasting menu... You're in for a real treat! The freshness of the food is amazing. The quality of the waitstaff can't be beat!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service, excellent foodHad a great evening - servers were attentive and personable, food was excellent, just not much of it. If you're looking for the un-steakhouse, this is it! Seafood, duck, and shellfish were all perfectly done. All in our party ordered desserts due to the small portions, only to find that the desserts were equally tiny. Plan to head over to Pastiche for a real dessert after dining and you'll be pleased.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGracie's - tops anywhereVery stylish restaurant, obviously popular with a well-dressed crowd. Service was excellent from the welcome, to seating, explaining the menu and how it works, to putting food on the table. We were pressed for time since we had a show to go to and the staff were aware of that and responded accordingly. The food was very well prepared and presented. A parsnip soup appetizer was quite novel and outstanding. My steak and my wife's duck were superbly cooked. We will be back whenever we return to Providence from Cape Cod.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysThere aren't enough words to describe how much I love eating here. Great front of the house staff as well as back of the house. The Owner and Executive Chef do a great job of making sure you have the best experience and if for some reason you aren't, they will make it right. I love this place!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable service!I loved every attention to detail. Made dining there feel like a real special occasion. The 5 course tasting was perfect for a first time there and looking forward to going back!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantI can't say enough about this restaurant. I booked a reservation online based on reviews from tripadvisor. I must say that the experience did not disappoint. I was looking for a place that was romantic since I wanted to treat my girlfriend to a well-deserved date night in town. Right from the start I was impressed with the attention to detail. The staff had taken the time to delicately ornate the table with silver stars. In addition, we were greeted by a series of waitstaff that were both knowledgable of the product and enthusiastic about describing the choices on the new menu.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGracie's is my favorite restaurantGracie's is my favorite restaurant in Providence; really excellent service and food The vegetarian options are really tasty and well thought-out, which I really appreciate. And the prix fixe is one of the best deals in town.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, great overall experience. No complaints what so ever I highly recommend this restaurant to any foodie or anyone just trying to take their lady for a nice meal!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my 2nd time at Gracie'sThis was my 2nd time at Gracie's and I've been impressed again. The service was excellent, and the food was top notch. I'll definitely be back.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial placeGracie's is one of those special occassion places where you go to for a little romance and a splurge. Between the specialty food items and the special treats you feel special when you go there. Because of the prices it is reserved for special occassions only.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion destinationWe always like Gracie's for a special occasion. The food is a combination of many unusual ingredients presented in an artistic manner. There are a variety of entrees that are unique to this restaurant like rabbit with gourmet accompaniments. The apricot with white chocolate bread pudding with honey and a pistachio sauce was disappointing. To me it lacked taste and was very dry. The ginger ice cream with it made up for the not so tasty bread pudding. If you want to experience some gourmet food, this is the place to go.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant. FoodMy favorite restaurant. Food is delicious. Loved the pineapple-hibiscus sorbet between courses. Only problem is that the menu hasn't changed much since the fall. I'd love to do the tasting menu - which has more spring items on it, but my companion didn't want to do that. Tried the new Night Shades drink - which was delicious - but quite spicy. Service is great although I felt a little rushed. Also the tables are so close that you can't avoid feeling in the middle of several conversations. Will go back because the food is so amazing.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was excellent.Food and service was excellent. One of the best restaurants you will find anywhere in New England. Casual, and yet suitable for special occasions, business dinners, etc. There is nothing on this menu that won't delight you.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Best Meal EverThis may be the best meal I've ever had. The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented, by enthusiatic, well informed, personable staff. The menu was inventive and provided three different options for ordering and pricing; a la carte, price fixed and chef's choice.The elegant ambience is romantically candle lit with a sense of intimacy yet allowing generous spacing between tables. If all of this was not wonderful enough, when we retrieved our car from valet parking, there were two delicious cookies left on the seat for us. I cannot wait to return.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff needed to beThe wait staff needed to be more attentive...too many times plates sat on the table empty for over 10min3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGracie's lives up to the hypeIn my two years in Providence, I've tried to visit every major restaurant with a reputation for excellence. Of the places I've tried, Gracie's was not only one of the best, but managed the rare feat of actually being better than it's been billed.
The duck neck confit was succulent, the fois gras was delicious and very well balanced with a marmalade crustini. Both our entrees, the duck and the rabbit, were tremendously balanced. Everything was cooked to perfection, lightly crisp, and featured the meats excellently. Desert was solid, not amazing, though we actually got a second helping accidentally.
The drinks were phenomenal, Keith is an absolute master.
Overall, I would recommend it to anyone despite the price.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the five course meal,Had the five course meal, with all courses being a surprise, i.e. you don't know what's coming. Each course was excellent in terms of taste and originality (skate wing; squid ink pasta....). I wasn't prepared for the size of each course which was on the small side, but at the end of the meal I was full, so it's a mental thing more than anything. And the uniqueness and taste of each course outweighed the portion size in the end. I would order the five course meal again. My compliments to the chef.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMYou Get What You Pay For!Excellent food, well prepared and beautifully presented. Service second to none. Pricey but worth it.

Everyone who greeted us wished us Happy Anniversary, they elegantly bedazzled our table with table confetti, and started our dinner off with a complimentary glass of Cava. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings and it was outstanding - each bite was packed with flavor and the portions were perfect. I must have said, "I had such a great night" about 10 times between Gracie's and our hotel! I HIGHLY recommend dining here!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in every way. TheExcellent in every way.

Great experience from beginning till end.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous, as usual. We broughtFabulous, as usual. We brought a couple of friends there as an anniversary gift.

We were seated promptly and provided both the regular and restaurant week menus and learned that all dishes on the restaurant week menu were 100% representative of the normal courses at Gracie's. Though our server was a little long in coming to the table the first time, once we got started the food delivery was prompt and timely, all of the food was fantastically plated and tasty and we had an overall great experience. The staff were all friendly, helpful and even provided subtle and appropriate humor. The environment was energetic with a lot of chatter going on and the crowd seemed young and into the foods and beverages they were drinking. Definitely will visit again!1/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
