Great place for a business dinner..
Dined there recently with some business associates and found it to be the perfect venue for such an occasion. Greeted by smiling faces all around, they made us feel as if we were the only people there (and we weren't). Food was exceptional, I had Blue Point oysters followed by New Zealand baby lamb chops. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their food and the experience. Interesting and inviting wine list as well. Service was top notch and the restaurant is absolutely beautiful with water views from everywhere in the dining room. To say that my dining partners from that evening want to return to Graceful Rose is an understatement...Highly recommend it!

Our 8th visit to Graceful Rose. Excellent food and drinks, nice staff. Music is excellent and subtle, making for a great atmosphere.

A pleasant surprise
My husband & I have been wanting to try Graceful Rose for a while now. I'm so glad we finally did. The restaurant is beautiful. The service was great & the food was excellent. We will definitely be back!

Service is wonderful
Always over cook everything! If you just want a great meal, this is not the place. But the whole package makes it worth returning.

Good First Impression
Our first visit to this relatively new restaurant in Port Jefferson was an interesting evening. The owners have invested significant amounts of money to create an impressive ambiance which truly does impress. We were seated at a corner table near the window with a great view of Port Jefferson harbor which at night can be very scenic. The service was very professional, the food was very good but the noise level made it very difficult to carry on a conversation with our guests. The next time we visit we might want to go on a less busy night.

Food was very good, service was excellent but prices were a little high. Maybe for the location, but I thought they were overpriced.

Gem; Great Find
Dined here for the first time to celebrate a birthday. Loved every minute of our visit. The "birthday girl" was given a lovely bouquet of flowers by the hostess. The food (lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, salmon), service and décor was outstanding. It's a beautiful restaurant. I plan to return.

We went to Graceful Rose to celebrate a ten-year wedding anniversary. We also had reservations at another Port Jeff restaurant. It was very noisy by the other place, which made us choose Graceful Rose. We loved everything about it. From the moment you walk in, you know that a lot of thought went into this restaurant. It is beautifully decorated. This restaurant has atmosphere. That is key. I have been too many places, but there was something about this place that made it feel right. All of the food was great. I especially enjoyed the Thai Calamari appetizer. The main meals were great as well as the dessert. The cappuccino was fantastic and served piping not, which I find a rarity. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Port Jeff Gem
This place never dissapoints. The food is outstanding. The wait staff is very attentive. Although we do not come here often enough, we appreciate the times that we do and that makes it a special treat for us. We recently celebrated our anniversary here and enjoyed the dining experience very much.

Graceful Rosé is Gracefully Great

Compliments to Mary and Rich Morrison as well as their manager Giovanni,and entire weight staff and bar staff Allyassa, Jimmy, Holly, Sam etc, and the entire crew, The ambience is top notch and we frequent this great restaurant. Now they even have outdoor dining for those who enjoy that and a view of Pt Jeff harbor. Try it you will like it and you will return

You Will Enjoy The Experience
The professional staff, tasty food, generous portions and the view of Port Jefferson harbor made the evening excellent for our group.

Treated like a friend
I have been to the Graceful Rose many times and I love the food but most of all they treat me and my guests as friends.
They greet me at the door and they treat my grandchildren 9 months and almost 4 year old like their own. It is what i look
for in all the places i do business with.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food in beautiful
Very good food in beautiful setting, but would recommend tablecloths and getting rid of loud live music in bar area which is adjacent to dining room. Potential of excellent, romantic restaurant.

A graceful rose
Great place! Enjoyed the food and service. Only issue would be for people who have mobility issues, have to use stairs to get in and then again to get to bar dining area. For example my mom would have a tough time. :-/
7/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had not eaten here since the Easter brunch. We had kinda forgot about it; but the brunch was very good. The previous restaurant at that same locale was not so memorable. The service, selection a food were great. Highly recommend "Graceful Rose" as part of your neighborhood restaurant rotation.

NIGHT AT GRACEFUL ROSE
The restaurant is just beautiful the food was great the service is awful...
Had to ask for water the table had a spill had to ask to cleaN IT UP..
tHE WAITER WAS NOT ON TOP OF THE SERVICE ALL NIGHT.
tHE PLACE IS VERY LOUD,
The website rves about a new dessert everyday and the pear tart tasted commercial made and the price was high for a stor bought item
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Missed the mark
My husband and I ate here the other evening and while the food was good, service was clearly lacking. For a restaurant that charges the prices that Graceful Rose charges we expected much better service. Table was not cleared-bread (which was pushed to the side) was not taken away, water glasses were not filled and the lack of attention was noted. Additionally we were not told that there is a discount for seniors, which we clearly are, we found this out later on. While the meal was good-the desserts were not in keeping with the rest of the meal. Lose the toasted stale bread.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed Graceful Rose. It was our second visit, this time with friends.
We were somewhat disappointed that we were not seated at a window table we had requested when making reservations, but realized there was no guarantee we would be seated at one.
The noise level was quite intense and it was hard to hear one another across the table.
However, the food and service made up for these things, and we will most definitely enjoy another visit to your restaurant in the near future.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really special Giovanni the Manager made us feel like family, and the server Jimmy is one of the best we have ever had!!! Everyone must try this restaurant!!!!!

Sea food lover
Restaurant is beautiful, service great , and the food was outstanding. A little pricey but worth it.

Loved this restaurant down
Loved this restaurant down to the wine glass (etched with roses). From appetizers to dessert everything tasted wonderful and all were generous portions. I had requested a table with a view and to my surprise I was seated at what I feel was the best table in the restaurant. Looking forward to going back.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasant surprise when we saw the prix fix menu on the day we went. It was our anniversary and the evening was wonderful and the food was absolutely fantastic. The crab cakes are the best we ever had. My baby back short ribs were the best I ever had. Our compliments to the chef.
We were very relaxed and the service was excellent. I already recommended the place to a close friend who wanted to go to a good restaurant near home.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there and was pleasantly surprised. The decor is an upscale mix between rustic and elegant. The bar area is very nice and the staff was very attentive. The food was excellent and the view was nice as well. I will go back again. A nice addition to Port Jeff.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The servers were prompt, friendly and knowledgeable about the food The food was very good. The view was the parking lot.

A Wonderful dining Experience
I took a friend to the Graceful Rose to congratulate her on her recent retirement. I wanted to take her to a special place and the Graceful Rose fit the bill. It is beautiful, the food is fabulous and the Restaurant Week Special was Awesome. I couldn't believe how reasonable our dinner was. The food was plentiful, it was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. The special even included a bottle of wine. I told all my friends and look forward to going back there again soon. I would definitely give this restaurant 5 stars!!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time at Graceful Rosé, always wanted to try it. Glad we did, food was outstanding. A little pricey but worth it. Tables a little close together and a little noisy. Great view over port Jeff harbor... Overall very good and definitely will go back!

Graceful Rose is a beautiful restaurant restaurant with a very attentive staff. The food is good and the chef makes accommodations for special requests. We loved the unique decor and when the staff found out we were there celebrating our anniversary, our waitress gave my wife a small bouquet of roses. Nice touch!

Best Restaurant in Port Jeff
This restaruant never dissappoints! The food and the atmosphere is great. Its a family run restaurant and you could just feel, see and taste how much they love it.. I brought a friend here for her birthday dinner and they gave her a cute bouquet of flowers and a magnificent meal.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we arrived, everything was truly perfect.
This is a real gem.
The fixed price dinner is exceptional.
I hope all future visits will be as spectacular as this first one.

We went to Graceful Rose to celebrate our Anniversary, The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

One Year, Post Sandy
I have been here numerous times since it opened. This particular occasion was a reunion of sorts for last year's eve of Sandy.
The food and ambiance was excellent, as usual. My friends have now made this our annual meeting point.
I would highly recommend the price fixe. Well worth it for both the quality and the quantity.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Maybe My New Favorite
This might be my new favorite resturant in Port Jefferson!!! I've read and heard both mixed reviews for Graceful Rose, I've also heard that it was a bit pricey. We decided to make the choice to dine here to meet friends that we haven't seen in years. The experience couldn't of been better!!! Your decour is amazing as well as your food and cocktails. The four of us all had wonderful meals; appetizers through dessert. Everything was presented beautifully. The staff makes you feel right at home, very friendly as well as caring. They all have a huge passion for what they do!!! We will definately dine there again in the near future.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for the first time on my Birthday. It was just wonderful. Everything was excellent: food, atmosphere, service. I even received a bouquet of 3 roses when the brought the dessert (with a candle on top) and sang Happy Birthday! Great dining experience.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We recently visited Graceful Rose for the first time during restaurant week. The food was delicious and the service impeccable.
My only complaint was the noise level. The high ceilings, wood floors and no table cloths contribute to excessive noise. If this were better controlled, it would be the perfect atmosphere for an intimate, romantic dinner. Unfortunately, when you can't hear conversation because of noise level, it detracts from the overall experience.
Perhaps a visit earlier in the evening, when less crowded, would be a better time to visit. Will definitely go again.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Visited for the first time during restaurant week. Good location and ambience by the water. For appetizers we tried the meatballs (ok), thai calamari (good portions and different), crab cake (ok but not worth upcharge) and lobster bisque (wasn't a hit). For entrees we ordered salmon (pretty good), skirt steak (pretty good), short ribs (lacked flavor but most restaurants can't get it right) and scallops dawn marie. Scallops were well prepared but small as was the case with the bits of lobster sprinkled around the plate. Rice that accompanied the dish was not very edible. May have been due to restaurant week. Don't think the scallops were worth the upcharge. Service definitely made up for everythinge else. Will give it another try soon.

Made my birthday extra special
We went there last night and had a delicious meal with absolutely great service. It was restaurant week and the portions of food was full-sized and presented well. They read the reservation that we made and presented me with roses as a celebration of my birthday. This is the first restaurant that actually read the special request box. It was really appreciated.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was very tasty, Soup
Food was very tasty, Soup was at a hot enough temperature for me. Coffee was delviered to the table before the desert bad timing. Overall very good and I'd go back.

fast and friendly service
I was pleasantly surprised how great this restaurant is. I hav been to many of the restaurants in port jeff and I have to say this is my favorite. My food was amazing, I had the fettuccini with filet mignon strips. Also Jimmy our waiter was awsome.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was our first time at the Graceful Rose. Food was very good as was the service. Ambiance was pleasant, although it was a bit noisy. Menu somewhat limited but there was something for everyone and the kitchen is very accomodating at customizing your order to your liking. Well worth the visit, we will definitely go back.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was my wife's 32nd birthday. She is also 6 months pregnant. With a 2 year old at home needless to say we have not had alone time in a long time. I was looking for a nice romantic spot and came across this restaurant. Very happy I did. Food was excellent, ambiance was romantic. They even listen to my request for top seating and birthday request. Would definitely recommend and will go back.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank you so much for making my friend's birthday special. The flowers were so beautiful and made her day!
