The food was delicious. The service was friendly and attentive - if a trifle formal. But the overall atmosphere of the restaurant hits it just right. Its warm and inviting and the tables are pleasantly spaced so you can have a conversation. We will definitely go back.

Bravo! The service staff sets the stage, welcoming you in, and attending to every detail. The ambience is casual elegance, candles lit in the clearest cleanest glass lanterns, and some glitter confetti on the table with a personalized birthday card to truly welcome. The food was exquisite. The amuse-boucher just exotic enough to delight and intrigue and with nothing to offend the non - adventurous in the crowd. The menu is limited, precluding recurring visits, but Gracies has become my new number One restaurant in the area for a special occasion. And, back to the wait staff - Personable, Knowledgeable (food, wine pairings, suggestions), and so very Lovely - they make the visit so very perfect.

We made the reservation to celebrate our anniversary. From arrival we were treated with respect and got to feel special. Arriving at our table, they had personalized our table with a card and decorated it. We had two wonderful servers who were attentive, professional and made us feel like we were the only patrons in the restaurant. We had the chefs tasting menu and it was phenomenal. They customized one course of the meal to my partners desire for the dry aged steak and paired a special wine with it. Overall it was an experience that neither of us will forget

We celebrated out anniversary at Gracie’s and had a fantastic experience. The service was outstanding—attentive, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging. The tasting menu was superb. We had not been there in many years and were so glad we returned as they made our celebration a truly memorable experience.

Every year my husband and I go to Gracie's for our anniversary because it has always been our favorite restaurant. This year however, was very disappointing. Typically when we are sat, there is a nice anniversary card and some confetti. This time there was no acknowledgment at all. I'm not sure if this is a new policy as there seems to be some other changes that have been made including the lack of the 3 course prix fixe menu. However what really made the experience disappointing for us was the fact that our sever John was almost nonexistent. He took our drink and dinner order and never returned to check on our food or get us more drinks until it was time to order dessert. Thankfully Ryan was assisting him and was amazing. We have never had an issue with service here so I'm hoping it was a one time occurrence but I am not in a rush to return.

Gracie’s is a classy restaurant in downtown Providence. The food is excellent ( I had the duck at our last visit), the service impeccable and the atmosphere great. Great place for dinner anytime but especially for a special occasion.

A very fine meal. My main gripe was the service, where we rarely saw our actual waiter, and instead had a team of people who were helpful, but faces were inconsistent. We were concerned about making the start time of a concert and ordered the entire meal (including dessert) at once, which was handled well. For dessert, my wife ordered an Irish coffee to compliment her chocolate-hazelnut dish, and the coffee never came during dessert (although my espresso AND a glass of Port came out immediately). When asking for the bill, I simply informed the waiter that we would like the coffee to be removed since we did not receive it. Instead, he insisted on putting the alcoholic drink into a to-go cup. Clearly, he was not thinking about open container laws while driving, or frankly, anything but the bottom line. It would have been far better customer service to remove the charge and not serve the coffee, better yet, to encourage us to stay longer and enjoy it on the house (we couldn’t, but the gesture is what counts here). I tried hard to understand the waiter’s motivation, and the only thing I can come up with is inexperience, or disregard for the customer. Our meal itself was prepared to very high standards, and we otherwise enjoyed the evening (our first time at Gracie’s). For the money spent on a meal for 2, it will be a while before we go back both because of the expense and the service.

Went with my wife for a special anniversary (which I noted when making the reservation). We got seated a little late, relative to our reservation time, but they comped us our drinks from the bar, so that was nice. There was a little card on the table with a Maya Angelou quote which was appropriate to the occasion -- my wife liked that :-)

Food and service were excellent; we both felt it was the best we had enjoyed in quite a while. I had the duck and my wife had the scallops; both were great. They gave us multiple amuse bouches along the way, which we enjoyed. The waiter was knowledgeable about the wine options.

It was my girlfriend's birthday and we had a wonderful dinner at Gracie's.
We ordered Chief tasting 7 courses, we loved all the dishes except the cheeses, we just didn't like it.
The service is perfect, waiters are gentlemen and are very patient, friendly, and respectful.
Would definitly go there another time.
This is the first birthday dinner I had with my girlfriend and I hope we could have another 80 birthday dinners together.

Another superb dining experience! Gracie's is consistently excellent. We had the grilled octopus, potato gnocchi, the duck and the halibut. All were delicious. Even the bread was outstanding. If there is a better restaurant in Providence we haven't found it.

We have always enjoyed Gracies’s. As usual the food was very good. The service however was off. It was not especially busy but the wait times were excessive and our server(s) were often not available and seemed to be missing all night. We will go back, but not for a while and with trepidation.

Wonderful service and delicious food from start to finish! After I made a reservation the staff called me to tell me there is complimentary valet because it's raining out they thought we should know that . Very considerate and appreciated ! We shared the cheese platter, ricotta rigatoni, scallops and blueberry chocolate tart. We also enjoyed all the little small touches... A variety of breads, intermezzo between courses, mint macaroons at the end and chocolate chip cookies in my truck when we retrieved it from valet! Nice work!!!
