Diner Reviews
  • "A pedestrian suburban menu of all the standards in a garish room with strange furniture. My steak was perfectly fine though a bit cooler than it ought to have been, drenched in some kind of steak sauce. Given the price and the reputation in West Hartford, I had expected a more refined menu and better service. More like an overpriced neighborhood bar, one to which I shall not return."

  • "Been to Grants many times for a business dinner during the week. Decided to bring the family to test it over the weekend. Service was on their game that Saturday compared to during the week. Food was great as always....."

  • "We've been to Grant's before, but this time it was better than usual. We've never been disappointed and we've always enjoyed but this time we were impressed!"

  • "It would have been better if the music weren't so loud. There is no reason for restaurants to play loud music. We go out to eat with friends to have conversation."

  • "It's a special place and a place for just a very good meal out. It's a busy restaurant and has been since its opening."

  • "Great experience at one of our favorite places. Our party started with the seviche (excellent) the beet salad (excellent) and the chopped salad (boring - great fresh ingredients, but not an imaginative combination; needs something more to bring it to life). Entrees included salmon, tuna, the filet and prime rib. All perfectly done and beautifully presented. Our server was friendly, professional, attentive and knowledgeable. We'll be back, but need to tear ourselves away and try Bricco first!"

  • "Our waiter took forever to first approach our table though it was not crowded. He wanted to immediately announce dinner specials but we wanted to order drinks. AFTER he brought the drinks he told is about the half price per bottle wine special. Our meals were excellent but the service continued to be slow and indifferent. It took too long to clear our dinner plates and by that time we were ready to leave. Disappointing and unusual for Grants"

  • "Brunch at Grant's is amazing!! The poached eggs on crab cakes is to die for!! You also can't go wrong with any of the brunch burgers-they will not disappoint!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The menu is great on paper. The food was good, but over salted. Dishes arrived altered from the menu. My brussel sprout and pear salad arrived with green apples instead of pears. (still good) Burger was served with regular fries instead of sweet potato fries on menu. Service lousy, impossible to flag down for drink refills. Slightly more attentive toward the end, but overall lacking of personality. Make sure if you are not into the bar scene to get an early reservation. The whole atmosphere changed from expensive restaurant to club before our eyes. Entertaining but not what i would expect from a restaurant that charges almost $50 for some of its dishes and not what i was looking for after a difficult week."

  • "Always enjoy grants. Good food- good choices and comfortable setting. Very busy and I find that seating for a party of 2 is. It always the best. They have a lot of "romantic seats" that are side by side. Not always the best seating for a couple of friends meeting."

  • "Food was great, menu choices have a bit of everything Drinks were terrific. The smoked prime Rib was excellent Sea bass and tuna. Desserts were ok the bread pudding microwaved. Service prompt and efficient. A bit too long of a lag on the mains arriving but, I would return happily."

  • "I always enjoy my meal and experience at Grant's. We did have to ask them to lower the music, though, when we got there, which they did right away. Our young waiter spoke a bit too fast and not clearly enough at first. We told him, and he slowed down and made an effort. He also ended up to be very upbeat and said he enjoyed our company. Grant's knows how to treat guests well, and the food and atmosphere are wonderful."

  • "I took my wife here for a belated Valentine's Day and I read good reviews about Grant's, but didn't know what to expect. We were seated in the more quiet area away from the bar in a nice comfortable half circle booth. The server was excellent. Large wine selection, ok beer selection. We had the Gorgonzola topped chips as an app and we ate every crumb. My wife got the seared tuna and I got the 10oz filet. Both were excellent. We shared a lava cake with pistachio ice cream for desert which was pretty good. I was expecting a steep bill, but it wasn't that bad. Would definitely come back when looking for a 'nice' place to go with the wife or friends."

  • "Seated immediately, drinks made to perfection, waiter friendly and helpful, with great suggestions. Food was excellent, my steak was grilled to perfect temperature as ordered. Desserts delicious. Large portions. Huge wine list. Not a single complaint or suggestion for improvement."

  • "This has been a West Hartford favorite for many years. It was starting to look and feel dated. Looks like they changed the decor and changed up the menu a little. The food and service was excellent. We enjoyed dinning here."

  • "Brussel sprout salad is fantastic but service was AWFUL! Waited over 20 minutes before waitress came over to get drink order... food took an hour..."

  • "Service was very good. Relaxed experience -- did not feel rushed. I had the slow roasted -- smoked prime rib dinner special. Very good quality cut of meat, but I did not like the smoked flavor at all. This was my first time at Grants and will probably try it again sometime, but recommend avoiding the smoked prime rib unless you know you really like hickory smoked flavor with beef."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Ambience, wait staff, and bar were great. My chicken was dry and tasteless, my boyfriends steak was over seasoned, and our dessert was too sweet. I dont mind paying over $20 for a tasty chicken dinner, but the food wasnt worth it here."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Good food but even with a reservaion for 7:00 PM on a friday night it took until 7:25 to get seated and another 25 minutes to get drinks on the table and our ordertaken."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "My only criticism is that the drinks are outrageous expensive and stingy. Drinks are more expensive than at a comparable restaurant in NYC where drinks are generous. Were my wife and I to eat at Grant's again, we'd have 2 cocktails each at home and save $50+ dollars."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Nice luncheon menu at a good price point. We had a variety of salads which were delicious as was the Mac and cheese"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "All 3 of us had poached eggs as part of our meal, all were over cooked. The waiter brought us newly cooked eggs, and again, 1 out of 3 were hard yokes. We did not mention this to our waiter, but we just would not have expected poached eggs to be such a problem at a restaurant such as Grant's. The shrimp however were delicious! We really appreciated it when our waiter told us that they had to go to your sister restaurant to get them because you were all out! That was a lot better than just being told, "Sorry, we're out of shrimp." We love your restaurant, and go there often for all three meals!"

  • "Place was packed on Saturday night, but the staff did not disappoint. Food and service were great."

  • "Despite living nearby we never put Grant's at the top of our list because, to be perfectly honest, the few times we had eaten there we had found the food only okay. But after an absence of a couple of years we decided to give it another try this past weekend. Not sure what happened, but everything we ordered was absolutely wonderful. Not just okay, wonderful. I highly recommend the two appetizers we ordered: risotto and mozz balls and roasted garlic. The NY Strip was fantastic, said the person who ordered that. The other three ordered fish, also delectable. It's going to the top of our rotation from now on."

  • "After the show we stopped for a late dinner (9:30pm) and as always, it was great. My husband ordered from the pub menu, which was nice that they had that option as well as the regular menu. The girls ordered salads with the salmon on top and the guys ordered the onion soup and sliders."

  • "Our recent visit to Grant's was wonderful. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We hadn't been to this restaurant in a while and agreed it was too good to wait so long until our next visit. We had a great experience and would recommend to anyone!"

  • "Went with three friends. We ordered four different meals - yogurt fruit cup that had a wonderful variety of fresh fruit. Very tasty. Lemon Pancakes (I sampled my friend's) Out of this world. Other friends ordered blackened shrimp with grits and crab cakes w/eggs. Both said they were delicious. I sampled grits. Also delicious. Service was impeccable. Will definitely go again."

  • "What a great time our small family gathering of 6 had to celebrate my Mom's 80th birthday. The servers made sure that our every need was taken care of. My water glass and coffee cup were never empty. I had a clam chowder that rated as possibly THE best I've ever had... every entrée we had was perfectly executed. The Mac and cheese side dish... to die for. We left with our bellies heavy and our wallets much lighter."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Great french toast and pancakes...presented well and with a nice spin(Nutella) Salmon flat bread was very good together with the frittata. Overall it was a nice place to have the first brunch of 2014. I would kept the DJ music a little lower since it was still morning . The service also was good but it should been a little more attentive. If it was the check would been much larger as we wanted to order more drinks, and he was not around to take the order. Definitely I will go back!! Good job."

  • "Good food, timely but very unenthusiastic service. But I will go back... Usually very consistently nice experience all around."
