    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    We have never been to Seattle before and only had an overnight there enroute home from vacation. We had a lot of bad experiences during our vacation, but as soon as we arrived in Seattle, EVERYTHING was better. This restaurant choice was no exception. I could not have chosen a better place for dinner. We often look for an Italian restaurant with good reviews when we travel someplace new. We have found exceptional choices in NYC and a couple in California. In our opinion, Grazie outdid all of them. As it was dim and I didn't bring my reading glasses with me, I mentioned what I liked (in both food and wine choices) and our server made excellent recommendations. The preparation and tastes were wonderful. I ordered a Spinaci Salad and didn't read the fine print. I had never had one served with nuts on it before and am allergic, so I had to send it back. It was replaced with no hesitation what-so-ever; even though it was my own fault. Our pasta dishes were excellent. Our server (Fernando) was also excellent... one of the best! Although we were extremely tired from traveling for long hours, he was patient with all of my questions, attentive to our every need, and just overall exceptional at his job. We didn't deal with any other staff, but any we viewed seemed to be in good spirits and not showing any boredom or any look of not wanting to be there... and we were one of the last customers before closing time. We were even surprised at the reasonable prices we paid as well. I would recommend Grazie to anyone liking Italian food and great service. I just can't say enough good things about our experience.

    Prices do not encourage Grazie for lunch. And the lunch crowd has indeed been small whenever we've gone there.. A discounted lunch menu with more selections would bring our group of 7 back more often.

    I love this restaurant and make it a point of returning whenever possible. We celebrated my husband's birthday with family. I tried the pesto pasta for the first time ...AWESOME! It has so much garlic that I avoided people the next day ...but it was well worth it. I normally go for the steak which is fantastic.

    My husband and I are always looking for dining that is off the beaten path. This was definitely a treasure! The ambiance was great. Beautiful surroundings that speak of fun and romance. The food was delicious. By far the best Italian food in the area. Our server was helpful and attentive. We will definitely be coming back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Usually I love Grazie but on this particular Saturday evening it was very loud and crowded. We could not even hear our guests across the table so it made for poor conversation. Three of the guest loved their pasta dish. And the anchovies on the Caesar salad. The lamb was a bit chewy. I had the grilled seafood. The halibut was fine but the shrimp were overdone and the calamari was so tough I couldn't cut it.

    Initial greeting from staff was very nice and quick. Excellent service and great food. Had the halibut, prawn and calamari grill. We asked for no calamari and they substituted 2 more prawns. Very accommodating and we appreciate it. Really like everything about it.

    I love the food at Grazie! Even though I'm allergic to gluten, if I'm going to cheat, I might as well make it worth my while. Their olive oil dip with a special blend of spices is absolutely the tastiest. They use fresh ingredients and I've never had a bad meal here. On a separate note, I would highly recommend their warm spinach salad. It's absolutely yummy! I think what makes it more special is that some of the staff have been there for years. Fernando is my absolute favorite! If he sees us, he never fails to give us a hug and say hello! When I'm not with my husband, he's asking about him. It's a quaint little spot, tucked away.

    Food and Service was some of the best we have ever had, but there was no level of privacy and it was very crowded (and I don't mean it was full of people - you could not move you chair back without hitting the people behind you). There was no signage on the street and the sign on the building was in a script font that was difficult to read, so it was hard to find. Back to the food, however, was fabulous and the quantity was just right. Wine selections was some of the best Seattle area has to offer.

    I used to go to this restaurant fairly regularly, but life got busy and somehow it fell off my radar. This was my first time back in at least a couple of years and the server was prompt to welcome me back. I was very flattered that they remembered me as a former regular. It's definitely back on my radar and I'll be going more regularly again, especially when I'm in the mood for a good, quality pasta dish.

    When we come down to shop in the Seattle area we make it a point to have a meal at Grazie. Who would eat at the mall when there's Grazie?! The lamb is constantly tender, the rest of the menu is imaginative and the desserts are a must. The wait staff knows the menu and makes great recommondations. Love it!

    Wonderful atmosphere! We were a group of seven but this place would be my go to for a romantic dinner date. I had the Spinaci salad and the Pollo Saltimbocca which I absolutely loved. Everyone in my group enjoyed the meals they ordered. The Tiramisu was the best I have ever had anywhere! We had a few other desserts which were amazing as well. Even the coffee was great! I definitely recommend Grazie's and especially our server April. She was a sweetheart.

    Myself and my colleagues had a very enjoyable evening over drinks and a very good dinner. Two of us had the cannelloni which was delicious and came with both a marinara and a cream sauce...just the way I like it. The lasagna got good reviews also. When you walk in the door, the dessert tray sat there calling our names, so we all knew we had to save room before we ordered. The chocolate mousse cake was amazing! The lemon torte was well liked too and the portions were quite large. Grazie is in a small strip mall that is not easy to spot, but is worth the trouble to find!

    Decided to try the place based on other reviews, and they were right. The food was great and the service was excellent (the service was among the very best I have experienced in the Seattle area in years). We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation time (traffic is so unpredictable in Seattle) but they seated us immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to eat there again.

The food was very good and we both had boxes to take home with us. And the service was exactly enough. I would definitely return.

    Love the food here, but on multiple occasions I've found that the service varies between very attentive to pushy to indifferent. By "pushy", I mean that main courses were served before we were even done with our salads. (this is a major peeve of mine, I don't like feeling rushed by the waitstaff)

    I wasn't familiar with the Southcenter area and found Grazie Ristorante online. It had high reviews and I needed a good meeting spot for a first date. The location isn't the best but I found it fine. The great part about this place is the service and food. I liked that they offer small plates. Even the small plates were a lot of food...nice to share. The inside is on the small side and a little too dark.

    I had a small group of my organization's leadership at an airport property for a meeting, and needed someplace nice yet casual - needed good food, wine and service, but didn't want a really formal venue or a loooong meal (we were on east-coast time). Found this place online with good reviews, and liked that it is family owned/operated. Really appreciated that they called me when we were running late to make sure we were still coming before giving our table to someone else - lots of places would just give it away. Prices were reasonable, the food was enjoyed by all, and the service was both very efficient and very friendly at the same time.
