This is my 2nd visit in 5 years. Always talking about going back after the first time 5 years ago. The food was terrific and the wait staffs are extremely attentive and friendly but not in a pretentious way. Their price is like any other higher end restaurant, but for what they served and the service, it is a real bargain. For me, it was a REAL dining experience!

Our server, Jim, and his supporting servers were most attentive and informative re the choices available for our meal and the wine/after dinner drink we enjoyed. Our table was adequate although, in retrospective, I wish we were a little further from the traffic coming out/in the kitchen. Next time. The portions were perfect.
Somewhat annoying and vaguely threatening that they tell you up front, through Open Table, that you will be charged a fee to your credit card if you don’t come for your dinner date. I can imagine there are those dinners who are less than courteous but it sets an uncomfortable tone for the rest of us....just saying.

I went with great expectations that were not fully met. Good, not great, food and service in a pretty space. Some creative dishes but each with minor flaws that killed the magic. Recommend against the wine pairings, very stingy pours.

Absolutely superior over-the-top service and food! Blown away by the level of service and ultimately, the scrumptious food. From the unique drink options to the bread, the appetizers, the entrees and dessert, this was likely one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. Gabriel, our server, was spot on and very intuitive in his suggestions for entrees. Allen the wine sommelier was interesting and extremely knowledgable, suggesting two wines that were paired perfectly with our food. The entire team at Gracie's, including Maria plus many other individuals that serviced our table was extraordinary. This is a not-to-miss restaurant when visiting Providence.

It was our anniversary. The wait staff said Happy Anniversary and treated us to glasses of champagne. We chose the 5 course tasting. They were able to handle my gluten free allergy as well as no nuts in the different entrees. The wait staff are very attentive and will describe each dish as they serve it to you. We have eaten at Gracie’s many times and we are never disappointed.

The attention to detail unbelievable. This was a wonderful introduction to Gracie’s and enough to make us anticipate coming back soon and often.

Gracie’s is the absolute best restaurant I’ve ever been too. From the food, wine list, wait staff, and atmosphere, Gracie’s is amazing. Go with an empty stomach and expect to pay a little more than average. There are many options to choose from ranging from the regular menu, prefixed menu and a chefs tasting menu in 5,7 or 9 courses. Plan ahead and make reservations early, this is an experience, do plan on at least 2 hours or more.

Love Gracie's, they never disappoint. The chef's tasting is always a delete and it is always something new.
The non-alcoholic pairings are amazing and a great alternative for those who do not drink. My only complaint is the $25 per person charge for canceling within 24 hours of a reservation. I can see that for a no-show/no call, maybe, but certainly not for a cancellation. Life happens, Gracie's should understand that.

For this dinner I treated my cousin to celebrate her birthday. She had never been to Gracie’s, but had heard me talking about it for years; so it was time she had a chance to try for herself. By now I am known by many servers and they all came to offer birthday greetings to my cousin. The food was outstanding as always. With friendly and attentive service and such excellent food Gracie’s continues to be at the top of my list of RI restaurants and now is cousin approved as well!

First time at Gracie's but most certainly will not be the last. We went to celebrate our anniversary and couldn't have been more pleased. Upon arrival, we were greeted by an exceptional hostess who led us to our table which was "prepared" for us; an anniversary greeting from Gracie's management and complimentary champagne which was unexpected but most welcomed. If anything, it was an indication of the gracious time awaiting us. Our servers were courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. The food and wine pairings were excellent. Over all, the entire evening at Gracie's was outstanding... I can wholeheartedly recommend Gracie's for any occasion.

Excellent fine dining restaurant. The portions are small, but perfectly prepared. Sitting at the bar, our server / bartender, Manny, was great. However, the bar lacked ambiance and music. There is a TV, but it remains off which was disappointing. Still, the food and beverage experience was amazing, and I would absolutely recommend Gracie's when looking for fine dining.

We have always had a great experience at Gracie’s, but this was the first time I’ve left there feeling “eh”. My husband’s $47 ribeye was over 1/3 inedible, being all fat. I love marbling but this was just full globs of fat. The bartender showed the chef and he didn’t seem to care. The rest of the food was good but nothing special. Too bad, it used to be such a great dining experience!

There are a few ordering options at Gracie's. By chance we were there during restaurant week which cut the tab down. We took advantage of the fixed price menu at restaurant week price which still gives quite a lot of choice and a delightful meal. Next time we WILL allow enough time to do the 9 course chief choice option. Wait staff were attentive and plentiful. not rushed and no nonsense - A great meal
