    Our family of eight including kids felt very welcomed. Our waitress was very attentive without hovering. She was very willing to ask about whether or not certain items were cooked with egg since one of our group had an egg allergy.The food and service were outstanding.and the price very reasonable. I would choose this restaurant agin.

    I cannot praise Graffiti's Bistro high enough. I especially want to thank our waitperson for being so gracious in attending to our every need. (I wish I knew the name of the young women who is truly masterful in the art of attending to patrons' needs.) Our luncheon selections were outstanding in presentation and quality. Ambiance inside and alfresco are not replicated anywhere in Greensboro. Every personal interaction with staff was genuine and warm. Adding a note from an earlier experience, the martinis are just this side of paradise.

  • Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We had a reservation for Mother's Day, and was sitted right away. Our waiter was accomodating, but it took 1 hour and 20 minutes to get our food! That is quite unnecessary if a reservation is made and it should be expected on food preparation etc. Have always liked the food and the atmosphere, but won't go back for a reservation celebration, as maybe 30 minutes at the MAX should be all the food prep is delayed with or without a reservation. Unacceptable to my family. :(

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    I went to Graffitts one time before this last visit & we had a wonderful experience. Called ahead & was able to get seated for my family of 6 in a private area with a round table. The food we ordered tasted fabulous & the service was spectacular. Felt like we were given special service. This last visit, we went on Mother's Day which wasn't the best day to visit because it was extremely busy & they didn't have the right size table reserved for my family of 6 along with my pregnant wife who is due any day now. The food took longer than usual to come which the Waitor did warn us before hand. With 4 young kids waiting patiently we became very creative at the table & allowed for many games to be played :)

  • Perfect Place for Business Lunch
    TKInternationalTraveler
    Dined on 4/14/2014
    I use this restaurant for business lunch almost every time. It is hard in Greensboro to find a restaurant with appropriate setting for business lunch located outside of the downtown. Food is good but sometimes, this restaurant is very clouded so that it may take a bit longer than you hoped to finish your lunch. I recommend to request quick service when you book this restaurant.

    This was my first time at Graffiti's. One of the main reasons I wanted to try it out was because of the live jazz they advertised on the website (which is hard to find in Gboro). The atmosphere of the place and the music were very nice. Our service was not all that fabulous, but acceptable. As for the food, my friend and I both had chicken entrees that were very flavorful. My portion size was a tad small with only one chicken breast, but still tasty. The peach martinis were really good too! In the future I may visit again, but definitely only for a special occasion since it's so far across town for me.

    This event was to celebrate my best friend's birthday. The food and service were excellent; great waitress. The shrimp and grits were off the chart. I had enough to take home and had them again the next night! Since I am a personal friend of Travis Wilson I chose a night when I knew he would be playing. He is wonderful. My friend had never heard him and was mesmerized by his talent.

    Graffiti's offers great food at reasonable prices. We ordered the flounder, a chicken dish, salmon and our 6 year old grandson ordered chicken tenders. All entrees were delicious. The waitress was attentive. The only negative was that the time between ordering and receiving the food was too long.

    This is a very affordable restaurant with a the sense of privacy that other restaurants do not offer. I particularly love the room with the fireplace. My friend had the luncheon chicken salad sandwich with the red bliss potatoes as a side. He said the food was great! (This was his first experience dining at Graffiti's Bistro). I chose the tropical shrimp salad with grilled shimp and tomatoes. Personally, I would not make that choice again. There were only about 5-6 small shrimp and not enough other ingredients in the salad. Otherwise, the service was good and I'd definitely go again.

    I went for valentines day. I ordered the chicken Alfredo. I was the worst I have tasted yet. It had no flavor. I sent it back and received chicken teriyaki. That was much better. The server was horrible. He was slow with everything. I sat without a drink for most of stay. He was not very mindful of my service at all. He kept forgetting my drink. And I felt as if I was rushed during my stay.

    My wife and I went to Graffitti's for Valentines Day. The place was full and yet was quite. The restaurant serves American, comfort food with a good selection. The most notable part of our experience was the cost-benefit analysis! We paid $38 for a beer, a glass of wine (good pour) and 2 meals; which, you will not find in most "fine dining" locations. The food was delicious. Portion size is appropriate. Not too much, not too little. I recommend Graffitti's to anyone unwilling to pay too much for an upscale experience.
