Great Mother's Day BrunchI took my wife, 1 year-old, and in-laws out for Mother's Day brunch and couldn't have been happier. The service was just incredible, especially the busy day they were having. The wait staff are incredibly nice, knowledgeable, and professional. I love the old hardwood floors, tall tin ceilings, and retro bar. The food was unique and excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. I absolutely loved it and so did my family!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a bargain!We went on "Date Night" Tuesday, when they offer a fixed price menu for two that includes a small appetizer, delicious salad, choice of 3 entrees, and a bottle of wine for $50! That's $25 per person including the wine. Food was creative, beautifully served, and delicious, and service outstanding. We're going back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAll four of us loved our mealAll four of us loved our meal and the service was great, too.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BreakfastWe were a party of 5 and had a great Sunday breakfast. Blueberry pancakes were awesome. Coffee is great. We have been here several times and will be back.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly Great!!We live in this area...and, we are always trying new places. But, this is like our home. We feel at ease...can hear our conversations. Food and service are always just right. Our kids (as kids) and nephews grew up coming here...and, they now return here with their families and friends. This is the kind of place that we hope remains after we have gone.

The hand-cut Agnolotti with house made ricotta was something far beyond delicious. Ditto for the Halibut with peas. We are coming back...this week!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Find!The food was very delicious--save room for dessert because their affogato is to die for. The service was also impeccable. The waitstaff was very attentive and timely; everyone helped each other out and I got the impression all the waiters considered every table "their" table. The Grand Cafe has a very cozy, romantic ambience, so it would be a great place to impress that special someone.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGive it a tryAbsolutely loved the place. Casual atmosphere.

One of the very best restaurants in town.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceOur group of 4 really got lucky by visiting here on a Tuesday night. What a deal! Three courses plus a bottle of wine for $50 per couple! The courses were appetizers, salads, and main dishes, each stunning. The appetizers came 4 to a plate so easy to share, 2 beef carpaccios and 2 sardine roll ups, all with really neat sauces and flavors. The salads were perfectly dressed greens with fennel pollen for a kick. Two mains were offered, braised shortribs and cioppino. The cioppino was perfect, with the different shellfish and fish cooked for varying lengths of time so that everything came out cooked to perfection. The shortribs were fall-apart tender. The wine was a light, flavorful German pinot noir. Service was thoughtful. Ambiance is plain.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMRaving Faneasily one of my favorite restaurants in the TC. The Prix Fix meal on Tuesday night the best food and the best bargain in town. The ciappino cannot be matched. I love Chef Jim.
