    Loved having dinner in old Montreal. Menu selection was a little bit limited, but my choice was as good as expected. The wine selection was excellent and the service was excellent

    Beautiful space - extraordinary food (the risotto was unbelievably delicious!) and fine service. Graziella has to have been our favorite dining experience in Montreal. Our waiter, though young, was pleasant, efficient and very professional. He paced our dining experience perfectly and the kitchen deserves a standing ovation - everything was deliciously prepared and beautifully served. I will definitely try to visit Graziella again when I am next in Montreal.

    The restaurant was booked solid and there's a good reason why. Unlike other Italian restaurants, they serve some of the most unique Italian dishes I've seen in Montreal. The staff was very courteous, attentive and professional. I found the no take-out policy amusing because the menu is very flexible and the portions are adequate. Not to mention everything is prepared and cooked perfectly so you'll feel guilty about leaving anything on your plate. If you still have room at the end of your dinner, they have excellent deserts waiting for you. Compliments to the chef for creating such exquisite dishes and I will definitely be going back to this restaurant in the future!

    Quel plaisir de manger à cet endroit! Un service professionel et courtois sans être familier. Un souci de la qualité au niveau des produits, d'excellentes explications sur les plats, une niveau de bruit assez faible permettant de discuter.... Quoi demander de plus pour un lunch d'affaires ou se faire plaisir! Bravo à toute l'équipe du Graziella! J'ai toujours le même plaisir a vous visiter!

    Have always loved this restaurant but was surprised when they refused to allow my wife to take her half-eaten plate home with us. They said they have a no doggy-bag policy. Sorry, but when you pay north of $40 for a main course and can't finish it, some people want to take the leftovers home! It was delicious!

  • Good but not Great. Strange policy
    AnnetteB
    Dined on 6/30/2014
    Our appetizers were very good. Our mains were fine, but not stellar, certainly not for price. What displeased us was their policy regarding taking home leftovers. Food portions were good sized (appropriately since prices were high). I wanted to have dessert, so decided to stop eating and asked for a take home container. I was told "We are not prepared for that" meaning they have no mechanism: foil, paper box, whatever to box up my uneaten food for me to take home. We eat out all the time all over the world. This was a first for us. Our server was very apologetic. Needless to say what that meant was I finished the meal we paid for and didn't have room for dessert, coffee or after dinner drink. We will not return.

    Food is very good and each meal is well presented. The famous chocolate tarte could be improved. The chocolate was bit to dry, not enough creamy for our taste. The caramel is ordinary and neither taste of fleur de sel. It is the only element that we did not appreciated.

    Graziella's is a very good spot for italian dining. Classy and rather intimate. Service is there but not there...meaning they don't become part of your discussions. Presentation is excellent. Wine list extensive. Desert was superb. Highly recommend.

    Cocktails and two bottles of wine for three diners seem excessive to me, but the timing of service of the courses led to our consumption of one bottle before the secondi were served. The service of the first bottle could be delayed if the space between courses is long.

    My first time there, group of 5 adults. We liked it food was very good, service was excellent, nice wine list. But we find that the menu was short, if I remember good, choice between 8 entrees, that s nice, but then choice of 4 dishes of pasta, and 5 of meat. We were expecting more plates of pasta and meat. It s like gnocchi a la .... raviolis a la ....... and then fish du jour, plate of pigeon, plate of lamb., etc. Very good service, but slow, came in a 7:30, out at 11:00. Very good experiences.

    Our evening at Graziella was fantastic. Although the menu was limited. We did not find that to be a drawback as there was something for every palate. The staff were very attentive. There was an elderly lady in our party and the staff especially attentive to her needs. Even though we had to suddenly leave, they were still attentive and brought our coats and bill in record time. Fabulous evening!

    No more and no less. We were having a late night dinner and simply picked something new. Graziella is in Old Montreal. Good neighborhood. The place itself was well put together: simple and agreeable. Service was the best. My wife chose the gnocchi while I had the pigeonneau. Both were good, though my wife thought her pasta more than that. For a great italian meal experience there is better, but for a good meal very well served - Graziella scores.
