We went to Gracie's based on a friend's recommendation, and were not disappointed. The service was relaxed and professional but not intrusive. The food was delicious and satisfying, without being gimmicky or flashy. I think it says a lot about Gracie's that, over desserts and coffee, we were already taking about coming back.

First let me say that the service was good, friendly and fairly attentive. We were greeted upon arrival and everyone had a smile and seemed happy to be serving us. My wife ordered the three course price fix, though almost every item came with an additional charge making me question the "price fix". The food was good, not great. We each had the poached egg with tongue, which was good but could have benefited from more tongue and a bit more flavor - perhaps a bit of truffle would have made this good dish great. The striped bass my wife had was decent but nothing special. I chose to have the sweetbreads as an entre, though a larger portion was not offered despite this being a starter dish. Again, this was decent but not memorable.

Everything was terrific: the bar, the food, the service. The bartender was terrific. The service at our table was outstanding....all the 'little touches' didn't go unnoticed. Our party of 4 ordered from the menu and were very happy with our choices. Can't wait to return to try the tasting menu!

Another terrific visit to Gracie's, this time with six people in total to celebrate a birthday. We were given a complimentary toast to honor the occasion, which we appreciated very much. This is a restaurant that just gets it right, time and again.

We travel to Providence several times per year and always set aside time to take in a few of the city's best restaurants. We are vegetarians which always complicates things. But there is a vegetable plate on the menu -- which my wife had and was spectacular -- and a willingness by the waitstaff and kitchen to work through other options. The salads were amazing, in particular the beet salad which was creative and well-composed. The chocolate porter cake was a knock-out although more reminiscent of a gingerbread than anything else. The wine list was solid. Our waiter was exceptional as were the all the waitstaff.

One of the nicest experiences we've had at any restaurant. Not only was every bit of food delicious, but the service was excellent. Our 3-course prix fixe menu was prepared and served efficiently [yet not hurried] so that we had ample time to get to the PPAC, and the valet parking was very convenient. But the little touches put the experience over the top, the amuse bouche to start and the sorbet served between courses, the wonderful homemade breads, the tasty cookie treat to go, and then, discovering the next day in our car some more cookie treats left by the valet!

We ordered the Chef's Tasting 5 course meal. It was incredible! Just the perfect amount of food and it added so much excitement to not know the menu and be surprised with every course. The staff were excellent. I've been to many restaurants. I am 55 years old. This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a public review.

Where else can you go as a foodie and enjoy first rate food and service and service that includes holding your dessert, bill and valet parked car til after the show???? That's right! We were rushed to get to the theater so Gracie's held our bill and car that was valet parked at no cost. After the theater, we returned for a slow dessert, to pay our bill and retrieve the car. And yes, chocolate cookies were waiting for us in the console for the ride home!

Excellent service but the food strays off into the imagination of the chef a little too much for my preferred tastes. Also, very $$$.

The staff paid good attention to our gluten-free request and also kept our theatre start time in mind while scheduling the roll out of the meal.

Bartender needs to find a new profession...slow service with a bad attitude. Ran out of menu's...can you say "restaurant impossible"...are you kidding me!?! Food is excellent and once the servers decided who had our table all flowed well. Overall, in spite of the rough start, it was a very enjoyable evening.

Gracie's has become the new favorite for my wife and I. The food is always fantastic and very interesting. The flavors are layered and simply presented. We went for my birthday and I felt the service was rushed and somewhat unpolished. This is the third time I have been to Gracie's, (once for our wedding anniversary and on the other occasion I had some guests in from the UK), and on the last two occasions the service has been remarkable for its lack of polish from the waitstaff. The service has been either too apathetic or too hurried. This is the kind of restaurant where you want to just relax and the servers need to be more in tune with their guests.

Great food (5 course) but we did leave feeling like we wanted a big crunchy salad post dinner. Shame after spending $200+ for two. A little bit on a foo-foo side for us even though everything we had was delicious.. We want a little less foo and and more food.

We celebrated my girlfriend's 25th birthday at Gracie's. It was our first time there and didn't know what to expect. Our dining experience couldn't have been more enjoyable. The atmosphere was relaxing yet elegant, the service was fantastic, and the food was amazing. In between courses, fresh bread and palate cleansers were distributed. The bar was well-stocked and offered a large variety of beverages, all ranging in price. The restaurant's valet service was convenient and left complimentary cookies in our vehicle. Overall, the night was very relaxing and enjoyable.

We went to Gracie's with another couple for a 40th Birthday celebration. The host made a big deal with glitter on the table, complimentary champagne toast and a candle in the desert. Very fun and classy. The service was the best. We had two servers, they got us every thing we needed, without bothering us. Quite an accomplishment. I don't have words for how good the food is. You must order the 3 course meal. I almost skipped our on the appetizer and it was just about the best thing I've ever eaten. The four or us each ordered the 3 course prefix with different items. I tried a bit of everything and it was all "punch-you-in-the-face" delicious. I highly recommend Gracie's for a special night out. It is well worth the cost.

This was our first visit. When making the reservation, I noted that one of our party was celebrating a birthday. Upon arrival, we were seated at a table decorated with silver glitter stars and a card with a birthday greeting. We were also offered champagne on the house! We all ordered Prix Fixe meals--a great idea (3 courses--mix and match--with a minimum price plus modest up charges for the more expensive entrees). Two of us had scallops (good), one had cod (great) and one had chicken (outstanding). The corn potage (soup) with lobster was excellent as was the creme brûlée dessert. We were offered wine pairings chosen by the bartender--great idea and choices! The service was excellent as was the free valet parking. We will be back!

Our meal this weekend was "fab" as usual. Gracie's is our "go-to" special occasion restaurant in Providence, where our daughter lives. We arrived at our table to find silver confetti stars (a Gracie's motif), and a whimsical quote on the table. Just after being seated, the hostess asked who the birthday celebrant was, wished her well, and called for a complimentary (small but lovely) pour of champagne for all of us. As the meal proceeded, we enjoyed Gracie's usual excellent service and delicious food. We usually choose the "prix fixe" menu, and upgrade as necessary, and it's always a hard choice about what to choose. The birthday girl's dessert came adorned with a sparkling birthday candle. We love Gracie's!!!
