Do not go to this restaurant if you have more than four in your party! It is a lovely, intimate environment much better suited for romance; not celebration. As a party of 8 including a few kids, we were treated dismissively, at best.

We ate there several years ago and it was magnificent. On this trip, I would not say the same. The price of wine by the glass has increased, but so has the portion size, as I didn't finish my entree and last time we had room for dessert. We started with the lobster/angel hair pasta appetizer, and it didn't disappoint. My husband had a veal dish which he really enjoyed. I had a salmon meal with mustard sauce, and it was a little disappointing. The accompanying shrimp was wonderful, and while the mustard sauce was nice, the flavor got monotonous with so much fish. There were a few stalks of asparagus to eat as well, but I would have preferred a smaller plate or less fish and another accompanying item on the plate. The service was also slower than last time (though the restaurant was busier), but the biggest complaint may have been just how quiet it was. We were uncomfortable using our regular speaking voices, even with the little bit of background music being played.

I went here for my birthday dinner with friends. We set at the table close to restrooms/kitchen and my friend was wearing short skirt. She said chair cushion felt scratchy and towards end of dinner, she said her thigh was itchy. We didn't think much of it until we left the restaurant. She had so many bug bites!! Be aware of fleas on chairs!!
Food was ok but salty.

A lovely restaurant with very good food and friendly staff. My only criticism was the staff should've been more attentive, e.g., filling water glasses and bread basket.

We have been going to De Grezia for many years and have always found the food to be excellent (we usually don't use the menu since we know what is available, other than the nightly specials). I especially love the pear salad and the veal dish. My wife did try something different last night and loved the lobster pasta, the best she has ever had. The staff always remembers our dietary issues (my wife prefers chamomile tea and I start off with a Pinot Grigio).

We were seated next to a noisy table in a half-empty restaurant. When I asked for a different table we were seated under a loudspeaker. The head waiter then tried to pass off a later vintage of the wine I ordered without saying anything. Throughout, the service and food was mediocre. I was badly mislead by the favorable Zagat reviews. No wonder the restaurant was half empty at 8 p.m. on a Friday evening.

Pleasantly surprised by the low-key calm quiet atmosphere as an escape from St Patrick’s Day revelry. The food was delicious - chicken ripieno and gnocchi Gorgonzola were the dishes we chose - and ample portiins. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The restaurant is very attractive and comfortable.

So I decided to go to Degrezia for my first Valentine’s Date with my girlfriend and was not disappointed! While searching for different restaurants on google I was trying to find something that would foster a nice intimate setting where I wouldn’t have to yell over people or over music. When I saw Degrezia as an option I was a little hesitant at first. I saw that it had good reviews but wasn’t to sure about the ambience I was looking for. But I decided to take a leap of faith and BAM, perfection. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with smiles and courtesy. We were escorted to the seating area and the gentleman escorting us gave of the option for a seat in the main dining area or a private room (of course we took the private room). From there we were given our menus and the gentleman explained the days specials to us. When we placed our orders, the food came in a very timely manner and IT WAS DELICIOUS! (I highly recommend the salmon!). Then we ordered dessert and again it was great! From there they just let us enjoy our time, they not once rushed us like many places do but actually encourage us to take our time and enjoy ourselves. And we did! It was the best date and my girlfriend and I enjoyed ourselves very much. You will not be disappointed coming here!
