  • Gracie's 7 course Spring tasting
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/25/2008
    Gracie's 7 course Spring tasting menu was amazing overall, especially the gnocchi and the fois gras! We even set the date for our next group dinner on August 31st before leaving; the 7 course Summer tasting menu! Anter our server was stellar and knowledgeable about every item/wine he presented us with... hopefully the 6 of us will see him again in August!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    One of the best meals I've had in Providence. We had the 7 course wine menu and everything was excellent, particularly the gnocchi with spring peas and the crispy skinned halibut with asparagus cream. A few too many white wines during the pairings for my tastes, but there were good ones. I'd go back in a snap.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 5/16/2008
    Our food was almost faultless, but the rhythm of service was so off that it made the experience frustrating. We chose the five-course tasting menu without wine pairings because the wine by the glass list was nicely varied and we wanted to choose. Problem was, the rhythm was completely out of whack. We would order a glass of wine to go with a course, then finish it and be served the next course without ever being offered another glass of wine. We often sat over a lovely dish without anything at all to drink. And it was almost impossible to get anyone's attention to say "hey, we'd love another glass." I loved the food and yet wouldn't go back. That should tell you something. Please note, our service was absolutely congenial, just inept.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/16/2008
    My husband and I spent approx. $250 for the 7-course chef dinner with wine pairing. The food and wine selection was excellent. However, we received horrible service from "Mike". The poor service (ordered cocktails and didn't see the waiter for another 20 minutes) and overall lack of attention, wine and food knowledge throughtout the entire meal was terrible. I consider $250 a large sum of money to spend on a meal. To spend that on a meal where you are aggravated for most of the meal is a waste.

  • Gracie's separates themselves
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/10/2008
    Gracie's separates themselves from their competition with their emphasis on making your dining experience "special to your evening celebration." While doing so I felt that some attention to detail was missed such as drinks not arriving with the course and silverware not on the table when food arrived. I am pointing out very small flaws compared to the overall experience of dining at Gracie's on a special night for an AMAZING (food quality, presentation, TASTE, and service) meal made even more special by the positive attitude and noticeable teamwork of the entire staff. What a pleasurable night out in Providence and I will intensely recommend the restaurant to anyone dining in the area. Thank you.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 4/20/2008
    One of the few restaurants in Providence that offers a tasting menu. This was a complete surprise, but we did it anyway. Our primary server was passionate about the wine and food he serverd and he was backed up by a very attentive team. The chef was very creative and made some of the dishes based on our preferences. The food was exceptional and meticuolously presented. Although we did the seven course menu, yes seven courses, the desserts were just to die for -- and I'm not even a dessert person. This was a rewarding and memorable experience for us. The ambiance, wait staff, food and neighborhood location will bring us back many times!

    We visited Gracie's after a Sunday matinee at Trinity Rep for the first time and were very happy with the whole experience. Menu items were unique, nicely varied, and delicious. One thing that quickly turns me off to a restaurant is finding items on the menu that you can fine at just about any restaurant, that was not the case here. Staff was extremely knowledge about each menu item, friendly and attentive. We look forward to our return visit and if consistent will bump this restaurant to Outstanding.
