The food at Grace was really yummy but the service was kind of odd. There was no rudeness but the servers weren't friendly either.

GRACE IS A TRUE GEM!
I live in the neighborhood - but shamefully have only gone to Grace a handful of times. I say shamefully because everytime the experience is amazing. The menu changes periodically and the latest menu is the best yet. Sensible price point, fantastic service and the food gets top marks from me - and I consider myself a foodie.

a real treat
Delicious and interesting food and beautiful decor. The restaurant had a busy vibe, but was not overly noisy.
However, the real standout was the service, which was balanced genuine friendliness with professionalism.

What Dining Should Be
so nice to find a restaurnt where you are not drummed into submission by loud throbbing music, where yoy can actually talk to the person you're with.Add to that excellent service and a well conceived menu means we'll be back on a regular basis.

This is the second time we have eaten at Grace....first time was last week. My son only eats organic food so when he was in town from Vancouver we chose Grace for dinner. The food is fabulous! There were 6 of us and there wasn't any food left on anyone's plate! Can't wait to return.

Great food and attentive service
My wife and I went to Grace on a Saturday night and at a few days' notice were able to get a reservation. The interior is well-appointed and modern, and the staff made us feel welcome and in good hands. My wife is vegetarian and was well-taken care of with the fricassee of vegetables, while I had the duck. The food was fresh, well presented and felt like we were eating it "straight from the farm". We had the Ontario Pinot Noir which complimented our food very nicely. Would definitely recommend and come back ourselves.

A Fresh Take on Familiar Food
Grace had come highly recommended to me as a place that served interesting food in a friendly setting where I wouldn't have to shout at my table mates to be heard. It certainly lived up to the billing. It is not easy to make cod a seductive dish, but they succeeded, combining it with braised octopus in a smoky broth. Throughout dinner, a delightful spin was put on familiar food without giving the impression the kitchen had gone through contortions to be original. My guests, who had just flown in from their native Vienna, were similarly impressed with their choices.

Simple but delicious food
Grace's food is not revolutionary. It offers crowd pleasing dishes made with high quality ingredients. The results are delicious and the service is solicitous and friendly. It's a flexible place, good for lunch with friends or a date. We enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Great imaginative food and drinks
Dined early evening outside by the sidewalk and thoroughly enjoyed the creative, well-executed menu, sharing the plank assortments, each offering a taste of three or more different items. LOVED the cocktails, particularly the "Summer Chop" featured when we were there. Quite possibly the best PEI Malpeque oysters we had ever had. The service friendly but not pushy and we enjoyed the hustle and bustle on the street. Highly recommend.

I had the sashimi, haddock, and parfait combo. The food was well presented, original, savoury, light, and filling. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone with a discerning palate and appreciation for original culinary creations.

Great Birthday Dinner!
When we made reservations, we did not realize there was a Summerlicious menu. As there was a good selection of items my husband and I both decided to order from it. We had the sashimi which was delicious - tender with just a bit of seasoning. Both the flat iron and the haddock were very tasty. For desert, the homemade cookies and ice cream were ok, the chocolate cake was decadent! The only disappointment was that an 18% gratuity was automatically added to our bill even though we were a party of 2. It was only because we ordered from the Summerlicious menu. We were happy with the service and would have tipped a similar amount anyway but the automatic gratuity seemed to imply that diners who ordered from the Summerlicious menu were cheap?

We always enjoy the food and the service. The owner will come to your table and help with the wine list which is private stock.

Great presentation and overall wonderful experience. Only issues that lost a star were: 1. My entree (pork tenderloin) was Luke warm. 2. It was a little tacky to not offer new silverware between each course rather than requiring us to re-use .

Great Night Out
The service was terrific. The food was superb. I especially loved the Short Ribs - delish.

deserves a long and healthy life
this was our third visit in two years - the quality is as high as before,
the service as assured and cordial and the pleasure factor equallyhigh.

lovely and delicious
Grace is one of those really nice, reliably good, excellent service, delicious food, longstanding Toronto restaurants that you can still get a reservation at. It's not "trendy" but the food keeps pace with current and local favourites. Sit in the courtyard if you can - it's warmed by heaters but still outside and quite lovely.

Excellent food and the service was very friendly, attentive and knowledgable.
Loved it! Definitely will recommend "Grace" and certainly will be back. Thanks for the a great evening!

It has been a few years since I've been to Grace, and I was pleasantly surprised. The ravioli appetizer was spectacular as was the parsley root soup. The beef flat iron steak and short rib main was good, as was the haddock. Delicious double chocolate ice cream, though the homemade cookies were a little flavourless. I will definitely visit Grace again.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I must say Grace was a pleasant surprise. Very relaxed atmosphere, great service, and above all very creative, well prepared, and great tasting food. A definite repeat!

Cozy winter evening
The chef's farm-to-table philosophy is evident, always cozy/romantic experience. servers and bussers are friendly and give humble opinions. Duck could have been a little warmer but other than that, food was fresh and well construted. 4th time going in 2 years, will always go back for special occasions.
