Walk two blocks, and relax with a glass of wine in this neighborhood gem. The service is outstanding , the atmosphere relaxed and the food delicious. A satisfying way to cap off a long & wonderful day @ the Met.

a menu with countless tempting and classic dishes, all - so far as I know - well prepared. Also a homey space with good sound quality. None of which comes cheap - in fact it's slightly overpriced, I think, for solid but not wildly creative food in comfortable but not wildly luxurious or fancy digs.

When finishing up at the Met,
When finishing up at the Met, the Caffe Grazie is an excellent neighborhood spot. Cozy, quiet and freshly prepared dishes at a reasonable (for the area) price. Not the most beautiful place but nice enough. Service can get a little confused (which is off since it's not a big place) but everyone is very nice and welcoming.

The relaxed atmosphere. They never rush you and you feel as though you could stay for hours and they won't mind. The salad menu is great, especially the arugula with goat cheese. the soups are also outstanding. The "bento box" is super for those who might be on a tighter budget but still want the sophisticated ambience of a restaurant such as this.

Lunch a Caffe Grazie
Everything I had was excellent - the mushroom ravoli was some of the best I've ever had. I was well looked after by the staff.

Great Food and Value
This gem of a restaurant sits only one short block away from the Met. Our brunch was delicious, served by friendly waitstaff, in a bright room, filled with art (a Tarkay hung on the wall opposite our table). Except for the drinks, which were very steeply priced, the menu is a good value.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a very pleasant experience. Our waitress was delightful and very professional. Our food was delicious and came to our table HOT out of the oven. That was so unusual for dining in the city that definitely distinguishes this restaurant from most. I hate cold or lukewarm food and this was anything but. It was such a welcome surprise. Both of us had the striped bass special in a delicate mustard sauce over spinach and white beans. A must try if it's offered again. Perfectly prepared, we cleaned our plates. The only negative was the noise level. We had to shout over the table to be heard.

C onvenient to the Met Museum!
Efficient and pleasant service for lunch. Menu is very nice--something for all tastes and quite reasonable! Perfect place to eat if one is going to the Met Museum.

Great food in NYC near the Met
Had a wonderful, relaxing meal, a real safe haven after enjoying a busy day exploring the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Service was warm and friendly and the food was superb. It's a small and intimate setting with a friendly neighborhood feel. Will definitely eat here again.

Great food, quiet, charming
You can't go wrong here. It's not innovative food, but it's consistently very good, and the place itself is charming and generally pretty quiet. The staff has been the same for years. I've been here maybe 30 or 40 times over the years, because it's a great place close by my home. I've been with one other person, and I've been with groups of 8 or 10. It's great for conversation because it's not noisy. A very pleasant evening.

Great Food & Service by the MET
Joined friends for an afternoon at the MET and needed a nearby restaurant for an early dinner. Found Caffe Grazie through Open Table on smartphone and glad I did. We were seated prior to dinner rush and able to enjoy our cocktails without any fuss from server. All in party of four enjoyed our appetizers and main course. Not one complaint from a hard to please crowd! Will go back first chance I get.

Wonderful place for lunch.
Following a visit to the MET Museum's newly renovated European galleries, I stopped here for lunch after reading favorable reviews online (particularly on Yelp and Open Table). I had a mimosa and the misto salad (they served a basket with the softest, most delicious bread), and for lunch I ordered the zeppoli accompanied by a cup of espresso. The zeppoli was served with two dipping sauces. It was absolutely yummy, but for someone like me I was unable to finish it all. Prices are generally what one would expect in NY. The service was attentive and professional. Thank you!

Overall good experience, food was well prepared. No specials offered and the menu was a little limited. Service and wait staff was very good. Being so close to the Museum makes this restaurant a good choice.

Great for a quick lunch...
On route to the Metropolitan museum, we stopped here for lunch. Great little "bento" box prix fixe lunch. Brunch menu was nice too. Nice waiters. Fresh baked bread. Definitely a great little find!

Awesome Gem of a Restaurant
We decided to go to Caffe Grazie for lunch for a friend's birthday. The food was delicious! I recommend the Tropical Salad with Crabcakes and the Truffle Pizza. Oh and the Zeppoli with Caramel and Chocolate are NOT TO BE MISSED.. The staff was friendly and professional from the lovely woman who greeted us to the charming waiter who made the birthday special. I learned that the restaurant has been in business for over 20 years and I can see why; there are not too many places in NYC that make you feel as welcome as Caffe Grazie.

Great find on Upper East Side
We went to caffe Grazie for dinner after the museum. We were warmly greeted at the door and immediately were made to feel at home. The veal Roma was great and my friends enjoyed the branzino and the ravioli they ordered. The wine list was interesting and we loved the super tuscan the waiter recommended. The restaurant was quite busy but not too loud. We thoroughly enjoyed this place. Grazie!

Lunch and Museum
This is a very nice alternative to dining at the Met for lunch. Food was good and they got us out without rushing us. As it is close to the Met Museum it is a perfect place to have lunch and then go to the museum. Nice selection of salads and omelettes.

We have eaten at this restaurant
We have eaten at this restaurant often, and always like it. The location makes it perfect for visits to the Metropolitan Museum. The food is not exciting but reliably good, and the service is friendly and attentive. The prix-fixe "bento lunch" (three selections for $16) is a very good option for light eaters; the portions are small but tasty. We will certainly be back.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for mUseum Mile break
Close to the museum mile, -- good food and leisurely meal.. Expensive, but better value than museum dinning rooms. Some unusually dishes. Ask for a table upstairs where it is quiet;
