Gravity Bistro and Wine Bar
Always a treatConsistency is sometimes underrated, but a restaurant that delivers every time is to be valued. We have been to Gravity many times and the food and service never disappoint. Well managed with an experienced wait staff and a completely successful transition to a new chef, Gravity sets a standard that many restaurants fail to meet.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!As a party of 8, we were seated immediately (upstairs). The waitress was very friendly and responsive. The food was delicious.
We shared and loved the sweetbread appetizer, beet salad and french onion soup. The main courses and desserts were equally as yummy. There wasn't a dish we did not share and enjoy. We particularly like that the serving sizes were not too large. We could taste several appetizers, enjoy a main course and share a few fabulous desserts (especially the bread pudding) and not feel stuffed. Overall wonderful experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMthe food was excellent. itthe food was excellent. it was a little loud, but it was a Friday night. we loved the cheese plate. hubby had the rabbit and said it was wonderful.

A good handful of vegetarian friendly offerings between the snacks and entree, plus the prix fix menu was veg friendly.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed taking a date hereI enjoyed taking a date here for her birthday, the food was delicious, the waiters where friendly, funny, and well informed. I didn't leave feeling too full, but just filled to the right amount.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved their wine list. MenuLoved their wine list. Menu choices were only so-so. Nothing I haven't tried before. I always look for dishes that I have yet to try, or ones that have a special twist to a classic. Service was decent, nothing noteworthy. They had awesome, generous pours for their glasses of wines. Bottles seemed a tad overpriced though.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had steak & fries, andWe had steak & fries, and a pasta dish. Both were good. They offer two sizes for the pasta dishes.
We tried two desserts: the baked apple pie with caramel sea salt gelato, and the chocolate boudino. Both were good.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good meal, greatAlways a good meal, great wine choices, personal service. Location central to a fun evening in palo alto.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing find!The wine list is fairly short, at least for wines-by-the-glass. However, the wines available were well selected.
I was there during happy hour, and so only ordered the small plates from the happy hour menu. The plates are beautifully presented, reasonably priced, and the quality was far above what I would have expected for the price. Everything we ordered was delicious: the chef's cheese plate (3 cheeses with 3 accompanying fruits and bread), the chef's charcuterie plate (3 types of cured meat with mustard, pickles, and peppers), and the house marinated olives. For dessert, the panna cotta was light and refreshing, and the trio of gelato (chocolate, vanilla, coffee) was amazing. It was the richest chocolate gelato I have ever had.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
