Always Good!I've been going to Grasings for over 5 years. First off, the restaurant is very quaint and the décor is quite appealing. It has a very warm feeling to it. The food has always been consistently good. The last couple of times I've been there, I had the Sand Dabs...they're awesome! The wine list has a number of great selections-both domestic and imported and the prices are very competitive. I highly recommend this spot!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMbig b reviewGreat spot. Totally attentive highly trained professional service. First time visit. Veal chop and wine list to die for. Seabass was very good, for sure but not quite up to the rest of the review which is stellar. Roar Pinot with veal chop wow!. Will go back for sure. Cocktails perfect Arrived early per reservation time on a Sunday but were seated immediately. Offered a bit of a delay to finish our cocktails at the table, very observant and attentive.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIT WAS FABULOUS! ENJJOYEDIT WAS FABULOUS!

The staff have always been accomodating when I request a quiet place away from the crowd.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFarm to Table ExcellenceWe've dined at Grasings many times over the last couple of years and they are the best that Carmel has to offer. Farm to table offerings are always wonderful and we can take our pet to dine out on the patio ith us for their are heaters if it becomes chilly. This time around we had the roast chicken and the duck entrees and all were excellent. The portions are ample and the service crisp.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGrasing's GreatFresh and flavorable.

Great service too.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMQuietly ExceptionalGrasing's in Carmel is the perfect place to enjoy the pairings of exceptional food, wine, service and ambience. It's our new 'place'!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMnice for a special birthdayOne of the best New York strips I've ever tasted. Exceptional really. Also, the classiest thing I've seen in any restaurant, ever. Our waitress brought out a white napkin for me and a black napkin for my wife, who was wearing black slacks. That's attention to detail. Went for my wife's birthday and they sprinkled b-day confetti on the table and wrote us a nice note. Very nice.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWoulda, coulda, shoulda!Were only there for lunch, and that was on our last day in beautiful
Carmel - wish we had gone there for dinner! Our lunch was fabulous!! Had a drink in the bar the night before and enjoyed that too.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great Grasings experienceThis is our third time at Grasings - we keep coming back for the food, service and great atmosphere. We held our small wedding lunch here 5 years ago and they really went out of their way to make it special for our party. This past Monday we visited Carmel and had another great experience! We hosted our friends who were visiting from the New York area and they really enjoyed Grasings' superb selections. Two of us enjoyed the cod special while others enjoyed the shrimp and pasta dish as well as the paella. The wine selections were great and our waiter was fantastic.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty food but a little crampedThe food and service at Grasing's were both amazing. The table we sat at was too close to the adjacent table and slightly took away from the intimate meal I had expected. The cocktails were refreshing. I'm sure we'll go to Grasing's again in the future.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGrasings Goes Beyond Beyond!!We were celebrating several things that are happening this year. To begin, we had a great table at the front window. The table was decorated with black, gold, and silver balloon and squiggly sprinkles. We had a HANDWRITTEN NOTE from Kurt Grasing on our table!! This is the only place we've ever had such, and we've celebrated at some great restaurants. The service was beyond comparison, including our server, our busser, and the maitre d', who was exceptionally and genuinely friendly and happy. The food was oh-so-good! Thank you for helping to make this "Love-in Tour Year" the best! (75th and 65th birthdays, 25th anniversary)5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, attentive service!We had a wonderful dinner from start to finish. My husband claimed his martini was the best ever! The service was attentive, the food was truly "fit for foodies," and the wine list was over-the-top good! A special evening!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner! TerrificWonderful dinner! Terrific food! Terrific service! Super friendly! Highly recommend!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYour restaurant was referredYour restaurant was referred to us by a local couple. We were not dissappointed. Great food and an easy going atmosphere. The wine list was impressive. I was especailly impressed with the attentive (but not "pushy")service and the wait staff's knowledge of the menu, preperation of menu items, the wine cellar and the kithchen's accomodations to specific dietary requests. They were all exceptionally friendly yet professional, attentive and one of the main reasons we returned the next day for lundh and will return on our next trip to Carmel.
Thank you all for a great experience.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was incredible andThe food was incredible and our waiter, Mike was fabulous.

Made a wonderful birthday celebration for our friend.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice!We were on vacation in CA for our 5th anniversary. I asked for a nice quiet table and even though it was the Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival weekend, we got it. They called to confirm our reservation the day before. They noted our request over the phone. Upon arrival, we sat down immediately. There was a nice hand written note thanking us for spending our 5th anniversary with them, along with some confetti on the table. A really nice touch! The service was good. Had it not been for the festival, I'm sure it would have been great. You could tell there were large tables in the restaurant taking up a lot of the service team. The food was great and the menu diverse. I got to try the Abalone, which is like our S.FL/Bahama conch. We enjoyed!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a wonderful dinner.It was a wonderful dinner.
