Hard for me to believe that I have dined in Providence for years and this was our first visit to Gracie's. In a word, Gracie's was exceptional. Everything from the greeting to the cookies awaiting us in our car when the valet brought our car to us at the end of the evening made our experience truly the finest dining experience in Rhode Island. Only in NYC have I experienced this type of dining experience. From the amuse-bouche to the intermezzo we loved it all. The octopus appetizer was outstanding as were our entrees (pasta and Duck) both expertly prepared and served. Desserts were also exceptional and I highly recommend the assorted cookie and confection assortment (perfect for 2 to share) as a great way to end the evening. Importantly, while exceptional culinary arts, Gracie's was not pretentious. Will definitely be back and I highly recommend to make any occasion extra special.

Our group had the swordfish, cod, rabbit and rigatoni with sausage entrees, and all four agreed it was the best version of each item we'd ever had. My swordfish was beautifully cooked, and the leek and potato side was so interesting and tasty. My husband noted several times that the rigatoni he ordered was the best he'd ever had. I sampled our friends' cod and rabbit and would not hesitate to order either next time we're at Gracie's. Our server Sarah was very informative and friendly.

Gracies is simply the best restaurant in Providence.
Service is professional and they do treat you like"family" in the sense that they want you to have the best experience possible.
Food...extraordinary...flavors, presentation just meld to perfection.
The wine pairing was amazing too.
Our "go to" place for celebrations as well as just a wonderful evening out.

We were there on a busy Saturday night. Food was very good especially the duck entree. Service was outstanding. Valet parking is helpful especially when going to a show after. Pricey... good for occasionally night out.

Great meal at Gracies.

The menu was blind and the portions were tapas sized (small plates). Everything was VERY Tasty! Very creative menu that tasted great together. Not so sure about the surprise part. It was fun and we had no regrets though. Just not enough food portions to say it was a good value. We had the 5 course meal with wine pairing. The courses started with a crabmeat appetizer. Maybe 1 oz of crab. Very good, but just a couple of bites. Next course was a Cavatelli Pasta. This was wonderful. Very tasty. Our favorite dish of the night. Maybe 3 oz portion. Next was a sea bass. Maybe 2 oz of that. Very good. Then a Venison dish. Wonderful but maybe 2 oz total. Last was a delightful desert. A curd with granola and a very small (maybe 1 oz) portion of ice cream. My wife was not happy about the lack of vegetables. A few sprigs of green here or there. Not enough to say we got a whole portion of a vegetable.

The wine pairing was like a 2oz glass with each course. In total it was about 2 glasses of wine in total. I should have ordered another glass in addition to the pairing to be enough. Everything was very good, but I felt like I left hungry after dropping $180 on my meal (x2). If each course was maybe an oz or two more it would have been perfect. Service and atmosphere was outstanding. No issues. It would have been 5 Star across the board if the portions were a bit larger.

Gracie’s food and atmosphere was perfectly orchestrated, and what I mean by that is the food was stylish and so flavorful and the look of gracies was calming and inviting. You could hear your company and yourself talk at a perfect distance , and it seemed like everyone around you was in there own conversation as well. If there is an algorithm for the perfect dining experience I think Gracie’s has solved it!

I highly recommend Gracies the food and ambiance was very special . Specialized attention from the staff the moment we arrived . My cocktail I had was on of the most unique and tasted amazingly delicious.
I would eat her again , think of this place as for special occasions .
I will also add this , I was asked how our food was . I gave a honest response that my scallops were cooked perfect but there was a slight taste of sand in them .
They were extremely gracious and didn’t charge us for the meal .

I have already recommended this place to friends .
My fiancé and I have eaten at a lot of high end restaurants and this was on the top of our list .

Exceptional service; elegant food

We dine out 3-4 times each week in top Providence restaurants but had not been to Gracie’s in years after striking out a few times when calling for reservations.

This experience was so pleasant that we’ve already talked about it with family and considered making a return visit. Service was experienced and confident, from manager to bus person. Our food was exceptional, particularly in the chef’s use of unusual ingredients for unexpected flavors and the quality of the bread made in-house. The sweetbreads app was scrumptious. Our mains, the swordfish and the rabbit, were finely conceived, carefully prepared and artfully plated. Music was not too loud—a distinguishing attribute among restaurants these days.

Overall, the food was excellent as was the service. The only service oddity was that our sparkling wine was served in white wine glasses rather than in flutes. I chose not to ask why, thinking that they may have run out of flutes on Valentine’s Day weekend, but then saw flutes on other tables. I enjoy seeing the bubbles in a flute, and when we go back, I’ll be sure to ask for one.

Incredible place for Valentine's Day. The food was amazing, service ice was fantastic and the whole experience was just perfect. Only drawback was we were seated about 40 minutes after our reservation time, but it was valine's Day and this was most likely due to couples extending their stay after the meal was done, so no points off for that.
