    Food was excellent. Traditional items but with in a more modern fine dining twist and presentation. Service was friendly but not overbearing and efficient. Will return

    Maybe the kitchen was having an off night but my wife and I went in for Thanksgiving dinner (we had Thanksgiving dinner there last year and it was amazing) but with the exception of the Turkey, which was tender and delicious, everything else, especially the stuffing, was WAY over salted. Pretty much inedible. Maybe a salt shaker got accidentally poured onto my plate in the food runner's section, but I just couldn't eat it. A real bummer as we were really looking forward to the meal.

    Excellent service with very good food. A bit noisy but that was mostly because of a noisy party of four close to us. Overall, we were very pleased. This was our second visit. We’ll be back.

    The turkey was excellent. The salad was very good. Prices are very high. Portions were rather small. Areas of the restaurant could use refurbishing. Parking arrangements should be clearer. Hostess at the front desk seemed new and lacking in ability and knowledge. Tables are too small and too close together.

    I was very disappointed in the Thanksgiving meal. It was plated earlier in the day and put in a hot box. They at least could have plated as the order came in. I have had very good meals at Grappa in the past which is why I chose it this time. If you are going to respond to the local food critic’s call for special Thanksgiving Day offerings at least make them special.

    The food was great and our waitress was very kind and accommodating. My only comment is that the service was quite slow considering it wasn’t that crowded on a Saturday night. The waitress told us that the kitchen was short staffed.

    Not a bad place. The tables are very close so you have to be comfortable with others hearing your conversation and you hear their conversation. We were lucky and had great people on both sides and socialized with them a little. So all in all - great place but you have to be careful if you are looking for somewhere to have a private or personal conversation.

    We brought an out of town guest to Grappa for dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was busy which was great to see. The cocktails, food, ambience and service were all excellent. We each had a different entree --- salmon, bolognese and veal parmesan and every one was delicious. I had an Apple Pecan Mule which was also excellent. We will definitely go back.

    Our Server Rebecca was amazing . Professional and attentive without being intrusive. The food was average and the kitchen prepared the food too quickly . After dinner we sat at the bar with great and personable servers, Sydney and Kayleigh. Grappa has a great staff. Hopefully the kitchen can improve the timing and integrity of their menu.

    Food was very overpriced and low quality. $60 steak was relatively small, overcooked, and very average quality. Wife’s food was bland. Waitress wasn’t bad but clearly didn’t want to be there.

    The risotto and pastas were under-cooked. We could taste the hard grain in the risotto. However, It was replaced right away by our server. Service was fantastic.

    The hostess was very friendly, and our waiter was top notch. He checked on us frequently, and we loved his personality. We sat outside by the fire pit. It’s really beautiful out there. The food was good, and the $60 filet was cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as tender as we had hoped for that price. I’ve paid a lot less for an excellent, melt in your mouth filet. Next time I go back, I’ll try something different.

    We all ordered a cocktail- they were good! All ordered gluten free cauliflower crust pizza- all good! However, mine didn’t come as ordered. Missing items I asked for. Gelato and pana cote were very good. What almost ruined the experience: waitress was unfriendly, and made mistakes & Unapologetic. She also didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert, another cocktail, or if our food was good. Just brought us the bill. We had to ask for dessert. Then we were charged for another mistake made- were were brought vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate that was ordered. They took away the vanilla and brought the chocolate but charged us for it anyway. I MAY go back for the food and outdoor ambiance-BUT would def not accept the same waitress! Good service is a big part of the experience of going out to eat! I can make a delicious meal at home and pay far less money for it!

    The bruschetta board was wonderful. You can make a meal out of this by adding a couple of extra options. We added homemade giardinara and the olives. After that we shared a plate of carbonara pasta. Service was very attentive

    We sat for 90 minutes and never got the food we ordered. Then when the manager told us “it would be right out” we asked for it to be boxed up, and was presented with a full price check with no apology. And waited for an additional 20 minutes, and still never received food. The manager told us “he has no excuses as to why we never received our food”. Nothing was offered to us as incentive to come back, so we will not be returning.

    Waited 20 minutes to order first drink. Not all our food came out together so food got cold waiting for others to be served. Food came out finally after an hour and a half. Very disappointed and will not be returning. Waitress and managers were very rude.
