We waited for 30 minutes to get seated with a reservation. We weren’t greeted by our waitress for a least 10 minutes, we ran out of water and didn’t get a refill to we were almost leaving. The food took forever and we ordered it when she came to greet us. The dessert we ordered when our food was brought to us yet we waited 30 minutes for it. The dessert was horrible. Not a fun experience visiting our son at college.

The food was pretty good and there was something for everyone, which was great! I was unimpressed with the service, the waitress forgot many of the things we had asked for and was pretty quick with checking on us. The biggest complaint I have is that the restaurant was freezing! Many of the diners were wearing their coats to eat but the AC was blasting, despite the cool weather outside. My food was also prepared incorrectly (I am gluten free and it was served with gluten and had to be remade). This happens pretty often so it wasn't a big deal and they replaced it pretty quickly.

Overall, the food was very tasty, but the service wasn't up to par for what we paid.

Great service and great food! The bruschetta is some of the best I’ve ever had and the chicken cutlet was perfection! Cocktails were also amazing! Wonderful waitress as well. Wish I got her name. We will be back!

My first time going there. The menu was pretty small with not a lot of options. We were seated immediately but took almost an hour before reviving our meal. The food did have good flavor.

once I spoke to a server about our not getting served, the service was wonderful and the experience very enjoyable. I think there may have been a miscommunication about who was supposed to take care of us. Friendly, wonderful atmosphere and good food

Since there is not much good restaurant in walking distance, we try to get table there and pretty hard to it first day.
Not much choice of menu, but food was tasty.
Waiter was a bit rush mode.
We needed to ask to give us bread.

We really enjoyed our experience for dinner at Grappa. I would have given it a 5 but they had a very limited menu. We expected the online menu and were disappointed because we both had picked something that wasn't available. However, we sat outside and it was a lovely evening and nice to sit there. What we did order was good but instead of a normal entree I had a burger. It was a good burger but not what I had anticipated. Service was good.

Tasty food, nice dining room and Very nice staff - but not the best service. Incorrect orders, long wait for water / silverware, not having menu items available, etc. Staff were nice and accommodated each request but too many issues and slow. This is from multiple visits. I will still eat here as I like it just lower your expectations and enjoy.

Handmade cheese and pasta, delicious sauces, and the best oil dip for bread that I have ever had. Great food for the value. Locally-made oreo cheesecake was delicious albeit a small slice.

Our salmon was over cooked and way too salty. Red wine by glass section had no Barbera or Montepulciano. Normally, I would have 2 glasses during the evening, but I drank water.

Made reservations - showed up within five minutes - the restaurant was nearly empty.

We were offered a table that was in a corner and I asked if we could sit at a different table (the restaurant was under 25%).
It was a table for two - but it could not fit our drinks, appetizers (soup) and meals (I had a salad).
At the end of the meal / I gave the waitress my credit card.
When the bill was returned I added my tip and signed my name.
2.5 hours later - while I’m with my friend driving - the restaurant calls.
They mispronounce my name, it has a ‘t,” and then tell me in a mildly aggressive way I didn’t write what room of the hotel I was in.
While driving they want me to pull over and give them the credit card number
OR I could stop by because they would be cleaning the restaurant for a while.
— i said I would come back later to the restaurant and pay tomorrow (today) snd I was informed I could go to the hotel’s front desk and pay there.
When I returned, at noon, the next day I was informed that no I couldn’t and the restaurant is closed on Sundays.
So … the food was okay, the server we had was lovely (she was) but the management ruined the experience.
I will go back on Monday and finalize my bill - but that’s the last time I’ll be there.

Inventive chef. Great takes on Italian cuisine. Having gluten free offerings makes this a good option for our family. The mixologist is great there. One of the options on the drink menu is bartender’s choice. You just tell your server what you like and get something back that is really creative and on point. Our server was great and attentive. We had a great experience and will be back. Thank you for a great evening.

The hostess was incredibly rude. Didn't want to speak to us when we arrived, and didn't want to show us to our table. Just seemed annoyed to be doing her job that night.

Server and food were great however. Generously portioned, and flavorful, with a good. Variety of dishes. Will certainly return.
