Diner Reviews
  • "I am very pleased with the food/service at this restaurant. However, I can only justify going there on special occasions. I would place this establishment in the "pricey" category."

  • "We live in Chicago which is a great food town and Gratzi would do well there. Had the yellowfin tuna and it was off the charts wonderful. Molly, our waitress, was very attentive and helpful."

  • "You know it's serendipity when you happen into your favorite restaurant any it's restaurant week! Gratzi has an incredible menu, and the restaurant week selections were no exception! Lovely swordfish preparation with incredible caprese starter and dessert to boot! Service was stellar, food fantastic! My only regret is that I don't live closer! Highly recommended!"

  • "We returned to Gratzi to celebrate my daughter's 23rd birthday at her favorite restaurant. We started with the calamari, which was perfectly cooked. The Filetto Di Manzo was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This great place during restaurant week has been consistently excellent over the years, but this time the 3 course meals of caprese salad, pollo Milanese/spaghetti with sausage and clams, and cannoli/sorbetti/gelati fell short with the first course. The caprese salad was a single slice of winter hot house tomato and minimal mozzarella served (and lost) on a dinner size plate. The remainder of the meal including glasses of prosecco were excellent. The restaurant did call after this criticism was made to explain that good tomatoes have just not come into season yet. Thank you (sort of)."

  • "Favorite spot in ann arbor. Always great food. Appetizers are outstanding..pastas superb"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Unfortunately I was not impressed with the food, this may have been due to the fact that it was Restaurant Week but they should have been showing me why I want to come back during a normal week, which they did not do. The service was extremely slow, though attentive."

  • "We visit our son at UM periodically and this was the best meal we have had in Ann Arbor. Go downstairs for dessert, a MUST!"

  • "I had the chicken panini which I found to be OK+. The other person in my party had the burger which he found undistinguished. The menu is extensive as displayed on each diner's personal tablet computer. The service was onlyfair, surpising since only four other tables weren't occupied. Perhaps lunch doesn't show Grazzi to ist best advantage."

  • "We went for lunch after my daughter's high school graduation. Everyone made the occasion so special. We took my in-laws and they are very hard to please! They enjoyed the dining experience very much too! Thanks for the great meal, service and atmosphere."

  • "We were running late from the Graduation Ceremony and they called to check with us...It was great. They didn't give away our table, they held it for us until we could get there. I had told them it was for my sons's graduation and since it was a special night they gave us this great corner booth. Very posh. Out little 6 year old was able to be a little silly and no one in the restaurant even knew he was there (He was not a noisy disruptive child...this place is too nice for that.) The food is always excellent and the staff are super friendly and chatty. We were some of the last people to leave that night but they did not rush us at all. Great place for a special dinner."

  • "Made reservation for 6 but added one when I got there and they were very accommodating. Tiramisu is outstanding and so are the appetizers. Wine was excellent. Food was about average for N. Italian but reasonably priced."

  • "I had the tuna with polenta cake, my favorite and very delicious. Mary Ann was wonderful as always."

  • "We've dined at Gratzi many times over the years, but the quality of the food and service is declining. Because it was such a beautiful evening, we opted for patio seating. Our server, while pleasant, appeared to be inexperienced – or forgetful. It took several requests to get silverware and napkins. One of our appetizers was wrong; the other was served on crostini that appeared to have had better days. Bread plates were an afterthought – delivered well after the bread and appetizers were served. The entrees were unremarkable. And we experienced another delay in receiving our after-dinner coffee and drinks. Not one of our better evenings at Gratzi. "

  • "Not only was the food incredible, but the service was outstanding as well. If you are visiting Ann Arbor then this should be a "must do" on your list. A memorable meal to say the least."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Gratzi has had its ups and downs over the years. It proves to be a alfresco dining spot for drinks. That is what we enjoy. The pasta is over priced and not authentic. Not bad food but for quality it is not up there with the best by any means. I would go there for happy hour and perhaps one appetizer. We sat inside for dinner and service was impeccable with Brandon our waiter. He made it a memorable evening. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Service was outstanding even though they were packed. We had a wonderful experience and will go to Gratzi's again when we visit Ann Arbor. "

  • "I went to Grazi with a friend "just because". It's a little pricy for not being a special occasion but the food was outstanding and we were able to sit outside on a beautiful night. Great cocktails too!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We started with outdoor seating, but it was a tad chilly for me so they graciously and quickly found a booth inside. The waitstaff was most helpful finding vegetarian dishes for me and made excellent suggestions for menu options. Our dinner was especially delightful. This is a great restaurant for special-occasion dining."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Had a nice evening celebrating a birthday. My only complaint was that I felt we were rushed through our dinner. I typically like to enjoy a glass of wine while chatting and then ordering. It just seemed as if we were being rushed and it wasn't crowded. Our dinner took all of about 15 minutes after we placed our order. Then the bill came. "

  • "During our most recent visit to Gratzi, my wife and daughter ordered a pizza. My wife has had their pizza on several occasions and it has always been very good. This last time, the sause was bland. My wife informed the waitress - Mary Ann. They offered my wife and daughter another entre and quickly delivered Halibut that was excellent. The management stopped by the table to apologize and ask if there was anything he could get us. They then offered all of us dessert on the house. What more could you possibly ask for! And throughout, Mary Ann provided as good or better service I have had anywhere in downtown Ann Arbor in recent months. Will return to Gratzi based on this experience."

  • "We had the best dinner ever this week. One of us chose the sword fish special and couldn't stop raving about the wonderful preparation. Other dinners were almost as delectable and our server was top notch. We just couldn't have asked for a better dining experience."

  • "This was our first time at Gratzi in Ann Arbor. The evening was beautiful and when we went in side for the first time the place was very unique and memorable. We were with Friends and our first table was down stairs. We asked to sit upstairs and the Hostess was very accommodating and took us up stairs. Our server for the night was Mary Ann. Let me just say she was great. Very friendly and walked us through the menu and explained how all the food was freshly prepared. We were in no hurry and Mary Ann helped us to enjoy our stay and not rush us out. We had the works; Drinks, appetizers, Dinner and Dessert. We all ordered something different so that we could try some great food. Well worth the evening."

  • "This is the best meal I've ever ate!! Filetto Di Manzo herb encrusted beef tenderloin served on a portobello mushroom with tomato, goat cheese, roasted potatoes and shallots. For dessert tiramisu and coffee! The new tablet digital menus offer you not only a description of the food but an actual picture of the dish and 3 wine pairing suggestions! Wonderful service that engages in conversation but not intrusive. Always available before you need something. Beautiful ambience for quiet dinner for two or large groups! I want to go back and try the scallops!! Love this top notch Resturant in the heart of Ann Arbor!! We had a wonderful anniversary dinner!"

  • "The quality of the food is not as it used to be. We ordered the calamari and many of them were raw. The seafood in the pasta was not fresh."

  • "Very nice environment, great for holding conversations, not loud. Great food and great wine!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Overall, the dining experience was very good. However, the price of the meal was on the high side. My particular meal was the salmon and I must state it was very good - but the price for a "salmon" entrée was ~pricey!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Everything about our dinner was exceptional. The seafood is flown in daily and it shows in the taste. The services is excellent and the restaurant is beautiful and fresh. They have lots of service staff, but they are not imposing. Well worth the trip to Ann Arbor! "

  • "Despite the butcher paper on the table and the bench that broke underneath me as I returned from the bathroom, the food is still great!"

  • "For a special occasion, Grazie is the perfect place. The food (pollo marsala) was incredible, and the wine pairings were perfect. Additionally, the ambiance of this theatre-turned-restaurant was exquisite."
