  • "it was a solid meal, we were in and out comfortably to make our concert next door. however, the waitress was quite icy and in fact simply didn't answer/engage us verbally. and my ravioli was slightly underdone. would have sent it back but i was too hungry. wine was nice, dessert delicate and tasty."

  • "Appetizers were acceptable, minestrone and saladl The steak was order medium/ And I suppose it was IF you average out the ridiculously overcooked left half of the steak with the nearly raw right side. The Coq au Vin was supposed to be cooked with white wine. Bi wine was detectable in the Coq au Vin. The chicken was boiled and had no taste whatsoever. The price of the entrees was a misleader. As was the margarita which was made buy the hostess (the young lady who seats you and is barely 18) and was about 100% tequila. More expensive usually means better food and better service. In this case, IT IS A RIP OFF."

  • "Came here before a show at Mass MOCA and had a great dinner. Our server was a pleasant and cute older woman with what sounded to be a French accent. Food was great, wine was good, and service was attentive yet not overwhelming. No espresso, but the French pressed coffee was exceptional. We will most definitely be back the next time we come through town."

  • "Gramercy Bistro would be a great stand-alone restaurant in northern Berkshire County. But as part of MassMoca (Mass. Museum of Contemporary Art), it's a terrific add-on to your enjoyment of one of America's great art venues."

  • "My wife and I recently went to Gramercy as a cap to our day at Mass MOCA. The atmosphere was quiet and romantic and the food was generally good. I had the crab cake appetizer. It was a little overwhelmed by the wasabi sauce, but otherwise a tasty start. My wife had a salad with Champaign vinaigrette followed by encrusted chicken with mushroom risotto. She enjoyed both. I had the paella as a main, and I'd give it a C. The rice was thick and over cooked and the mussels and clams were small and a bit dry. Still, the dish was flavorful. I'd go back but would stick with more basic dishes."

  • "The food was absolutely amazing at Gramercy Bistro. My table had the Ahi Tuna & the steak... it is really hard to get a perfect steak and Gramercy Bistro nailed it! The Ahi Tuna was the best I HAVE EVER had and I live in NYC, so thats saying a lot! I would love the recipe, the Ahi Tuna was encrusted with sesame seeds and a deliciious ginger/soy sauce! Unfortunately our waitress seemed to have some sort of an attitude and the air temperature was excruciatingly hot. I wish it were in the old location, this location is not ideal! When we pulled in- there were no cars in the parking lot, everyone that I was with was a bit worried seeing as no one was there."

  • "Everyone (bartender, waitress) seemed surly and out of sorts, even though it wasn't that crowded. And when you run our of the one vegetarian entree, maybe do better than "we can do some pasta.""

  • "The food was excellent, as always, My roasted pork was tender and well-matched with red cabbage and a flavorful sauce. Everyone else enjoyed their entrees as well. On a night when the thermometer was near zero, sitting by the blazing wood fire was a real bonus -- and of course it added to the ambiance as well."

  • "We had a great dinner at Gramercy while spending the weekend in North Adams. The food was very, very good and ambience well appointed. The thai mussels, sirloin, scallops and bisque were delicious. The dessert was not great, but we figured it's more of a foodie place not dessert so its wasn't a big deal."

  • "COMFORTABLE QUIET ATMOSPHERE. SERVICE WAS GOOD BUT THE FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING. NY STRIP DONE TO OUR LIKING, CARAMELIZED MUSHROOM RAVIOLI WAS DELICIOUS, AS WELL AS THE BAY SCALLOPS. I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "Very good rabbit pot pie and blueberry pancakes. Only issue with service during sunday brunch was that I was not asked whether I would like coffee/tea whereas the other half of the table was asked that. Could have used some tea."

  • "My wife and I spent Saturday wondering through Mass MoCA and stayed at the Porches Inn for the evening. Gramercy Bistro was the perfect complement to our visit to the Museum. The food was fantastic and the service could not have been better. I highly recommend Gramercy Bistro to couples or a group of friends who want to have a nice quiet dinner, with pleasant conversation. The atmosphere is wonderful and its close proximity to the Museum and the Inn added to our experience in North Adams."

  • "Gramercy Bistro has not changed its menu much over the years, but I am happy ordering the same delicious things each time. What bothered me when we ate there some months ago was that the place was so popular, and the dining room so full on a Saturday night, that we couldn't hear our visitors from Brussels over the general din. This past Sunday night, however, with guests from London, we were the only people in the entire restaurant. We had an absolutely lovely time, and the waiter even turned off the music at our request! Everyone enjoyed the food, including first courses of oasted eggplant, crab cakes, bisque, and salad with goat cheese; main courses of sesame tuna, Dover sole, and schnitzel; and a shared chocolate cake dessert."

  • "We had heard that it was good, and were not disappointed. Not a large menu of choices, but the menu is innovative and the food was excellent. Haven't head a real Caesar Salad since most restaurants have wimped out on the raw egg, it reminded me of the Caesar's I made at home. The Paella Andalusia style was quite good, the shellfish tasted fresh. We were so pleased that we returned for brunch the next day. I highly recommend the egg tart. Rebekah & Richard Wise"

  • "Massachusetts residents dining for the first time at Gramercy on Thanksgiving Day; overall excellent dining experience; service staff was professional and quietly attentive; the dinner that day mainly fixed: a traditional, more than complete, heaped high and very delicious Thanksgiving Day dinner with a choice of appetizers and desserts; first course butternut squash/apple cider soup was rich and flavorful. I look forward to return visits to taste selections from a full service menu."

  • "Never expected such sophisticated fare or diligent service From a North Adams spot. We came for a sports match at Williams. Our party grew from 10 to 24 during the day and we were graciously Accommodated. Our group was mainly from New York and San Francisco So we were used to excellent dining. Everyone was impressed!! Nicely varied menu, friendly servers and reasonable Pricing for the level of cuisine. And next to Mass MOCA To boot!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner here. Nice ambience, good food. Waitress not the most at tentative but fine. Best choice of restaurants if one is staying locally to visit Mass MOCA. It is within walking distance to Porches."

  • "I hadn't been to Gramercy in some time and my return was well worth the trip! Many of my menu favorites were still listed with a lot of nice new additions. Portions were perfect--not too large and more importantly, not too small, like many other finer dining establishments. I'm looking forward to my next visit."

  • "This is one of those very good restaurants that I was grateful to find in an area of Massachusetts where I don't know the foodie landscape. Meals were good with fair prices. Nothing blew us away with flavor or creativity but everything we had was nicely cooked...and presented too."

  • "The restaurant was very pleasant - nice decor, speakers were right overhead and managed to remain just under annoying, except at the end when most people had left. Food was excellent. The only downside was the lack of enthusiasm or warmth from our server. Perhaps he was tired or stressed but several time I got the impression that we were bothering him. It took a while for him to come and take our order, and offer drinks - usually rule #1 to get happy customers. I didn't appreciate the 18% gratuity being included for a party of 2! We decided not to make a fuss but I don't think it warranted more than 15% for "service"."

  • "Reviews and ratings of this restaurant indicated that it would produce very good cuisine. The food was under-salted, which is very unusual from a person who uses little salt. I had the schnitzel which was under seasoned and rather tasteless. The waiter was very attentive and the decor was beautiful but, I would not repeat the experience."

  • "Tasteful decor, attentive service, well presented food. The best: Our waiter, a college student, was professional but friendly and funny in response to our personalities. The scallops were done to a turn- perfectly sweet and moist without being raw. The seared tuna was silky. Everything tasted like real food: fresh and not grown solely for its keeping qualities. Desserts were no let down- especially the pistachio tart! Negatives? Ravioli were tasty but a bit tough and heavy, and the fried kale garnish was pretty but awkward to consume. Clarified butter sealing the påté was too thick/too hard. Easy to remove if you prefer, but difficult to handle if you want it. The bread is made there and served warm, but I prefer more character. Go, Enjoy!"

  • "I choose gramercy for a special occasion (anniversary dinner) since we were planning to be in north Adams and it seemed like the nicest restaurant around. The ambience is nice, and menu is interesting. But the food was just average - not well seasoned (does the chef own a salt shaker?) and not particularly memorable. But the service really brought the experience down. Inattentive is an understatement. We hardly saw our waiter (it seemed like there were only 2 waiters for the whole restaurant on a Friday night). It took 20 minutes just to pay the check. I'm all for slow food, but there must be an attentiveness that goes with it. That's not the case here."

  • "Amidst a plethora of franchised and predictable and ordinary alternatives the Gramercy Bistro shines. Not the easiest place to find at night within the buildings of MASS MOCA, but we'd done a recce that morning so it was easy for us. Walk inside and the rather dismal exterior transforms to a delightful airy restaurant full of well spaced white linen covered tables. The greeting was welcoming and the service throughout was friendly but professional. The wine list was limited but well chosen and the menu excellent and inviting. We had a brilliant meal and loved every minute of it. Well done to The Gramercy Bistro!"
