Although the menu varies relatively little, it is a quite nice one. Have been there many times and it has always been quite good across the board -- starters, entrees and desserts.

Had a 630 reservation on a Friday night; there were only 4 other occupied tables of 2-4 people. There was only one waitress, it should have been very manageable but the service was quite slow. From the time we got there to when we got our drinks was at least 15min. I had to ask to have my water glass refilled( a pet peeve of mine). I would expect a little better service on a $100 meal.
The food was very good though, calimari was probably in the top five I’ve had. Atmosphere was nice, it’s what you might expect of a restaurant next to a museum.
Besides the service as being mediocre I would definitely recommend eating there .

My teenage daughter and I had Easter Brunch at Gramercy Bistro and we loved everything about the restaurant, the elegant single tulip on each table the wonderful windows, the food, everything! My girl had the delicious trout with fingerling potatoes and I had a beautiful puff pastry with goat cheese and eggs, delightful.

The food and the service were very good, the Gin & Ginger Gimlet was fantastic! The table suck, it was a dark corner behind a glass division wall. You have to be mindful of the ambiance in all of your tables. I will try it again, but next time I will ask NOT to get that table.

The ambience and service at the Gramercy Bistro were pleasant, but my husband and I were both very disappointed with the food. I had the grilled romaine salad which was, frankly, a disgrace for $11 - half of a very small, wilty-looking romaine head with two pieces of bacon resting on top. My husband's chicken liver mousse was watery (not nice!) I then had mussels, which were flavorful but overcooked, while my husband pronounced his veal to be "plastic-like." (He did not finish it, most unusual.) We were there on a Thursday in February, and there was only one other couple dining. Perhaps the cook had the night off. Perhaps the food can be better, but based on our experience I would steer clear of this restaurant.

We started with the carrot coconut bisque which was flavorful and warming. Thereafter, we had the goat cheese ravioli and the veal schnitzel. Both meals were delicious and well presented. The wait staff was appropriately attentive throughout the meal, though the seating for our reservation was delayed by about 15 minutes due to how busy it was. Overall, a delightful experience at a fine establishment to which I would gladly return

Because of its location, Gramercy is THE place to dine before events at Mass MoCA. Nearby Public Eat + Drink is lower key and less expensive, but does not take reservations, making it an iffy pre-concert choice. Gramercy is a bistro in name only, lacking classics like cassoulet or steak frites; but its narrow, meat-heavy menu is well prepared and gorgeously plated. Expensive for North Adams, it's moderate by Boston or NY standards - good value as long as you're not expecting a 5-star meal.

A very welcoming place in a wonderful spot--MASS Moca---but everything we ordered--soup, salad, steaks---were generally tasteless. Service wasn't great, food delivery slow, even though it was a Sunday and there were several empty tables

Gramercy Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants, and I was happy to take two out of town friends there for dinner. Our meal was great and the waitstaff was excellent.
My only complaint is about our table: it was next to an outer door directing guests to the "restroom" or to leave the building...It was very annoying to have the door slamming shut next to our table, people walking by, and one can't return that way if you do go to the restroom. That door should be for emergency exits, only.

We went out to dinner earlier this week with friends we don't see regularly. Everyone decided that it made sense to eat at Gramercy Bistro, the best restaurant within easy driving distance of Williamstown, home to all of us. The two males ordered identical meals: crab cake appetizer followed by a trout special; both females ordered a salad first course—a grilled romaine special for my friend, the regular salad with goat cheese for me. My friend had the steak medium rare and chose a bottle of red wine for the table. I ordered my favorite here (and elsewhere)—seared sesame tuna. The men extended the delightful evening by ordering French press coffees. The food is always wonderful here, though I note that the amuse bouche of pickled vegetables that has always been served when diners are seated was not offered this time. My only other complaints are that whole grain bread should be offered in addition to or instead of ciabatta, and espresso drinks, including latte and its relatives, should also be available. That said, I don't hesitate to urge visitors to Mass MoCA or tourists in the northern Berkshires to make dinner at Gramercy Bistro part of their plans.

My sister loves this restaurant so we checked it out and were pleased with the result. I had the special: sole stuffed with chanterelles and a grilled romaine salad while were delicious (5 stars). My husband had paella (4 stars). The wine list was decent. The staff was attentive and the pace of the meal was relaxed.
Will return when we visit MASS MoCA in the future.

We stop in to North Adams about once per year, and we always try to have dinner at Gramercy Bistro. We attend the FreshGrass music festival at Mass MoCA and very much enjoy a quiet dinner at Gramercy for a change of pace one night. The prices are always reasonable for the meal. We have had some very good meals, and some great ones - but we have never been disappointed. We look forward to returning.

Outstanding food on a quiet Monday evening after a day at MoCA before heading to a stay at The Porches across the street. The goat cheese garnish, greens and other vegetables in my salad were obviously fresh. The ravioli firm and flavorful and the bourbon/maple infused crème anglaise capped off a fine meal.

The restaurant is located at MassMOCA. The ambiance and decor is very nice, serene and mellow. The cocktails were well-made and delicious. The food was okay. Our chicken liver pate arrived straight from a very cold refrigerator, so that the flavors were not at all at their peak and the layer of fat on the top was like a rock. The veal schnitzel arrived room temperature and, to my taste, was overly breaded. The pork chop, sadly, was dry. I had eaten here twice on a trip last spring and had delicious meals, so this was a small disappointment. The service was good, though!

I'm sure this isn't my 1st review of Gramercy Bistro....my husband and I usually dine here whenever we are in the Berkshires and stay at Porches Inn. It is right next to Mass MOCA and the food is always excellent. I had one of their special dishes that I have had before but you don't find very often so I couldn't help myself - the veal schnitzel! My husband had a trout daily special and he ate it all up. We started with a cocktail and some pate and ended with french press coffee and one of their signature desserts....my mouth is watering!

The MASSMoca was our Sat. mid pm destination after a drive from Boston. Dinner at the Gramercy Bistro made a great tandem concept. We got to see the Nick Cave and the James Turrell at the museum, scored some finds at the gift shop and walked across the entrance court to dinner. We loved the seasonal local tomato and buffalo cheese salad. My husband's scallop prep was well received and looked great to me. I was excited to try my paella with seafood, chirizo and chicken. I liked it and had a hard time trying to eat it all (big helping). It was a little mild to my personal taste for spiciness, but I ate every morsel of the seafood and meats that I could find in the candlelight. And a special shout out for the "dark" beer recommended to me,
a craft beer called "Housitonic Tunnel something"? It was great with my dinner choice. I had no room for dessert, but my husband loved his ricotta fritters with a vanilla dipping sauce. A fun and ease of access art fix and food pairing.
