I come here all the time and have never had a bad experience! I eat gluten free and the staff are all well educated and aware of allergies. Always great specials and a solid menu! Will always come back to this place!

My friend and I had such a lovely evening at Grappa recently. We dined outdoors on the charming deck and enjoyed excellent service from our server, Sara. Our food was outstanding! We will definitely be back.

They did a nice job with distancing and cleaning tables. The pizza was great, as were the fries, but my veal parm was just okay.

Food was great. Nothing super complicated or fancy but solidly good. We had the special pasta with capers, tomatoes and anchovies; pizza; and burgers(both sweet and plain potato fries amazing. The gin Cocktail with elderflower was amazing. The outdoor area is charming and nice and service attentive.

Outstanding drinks. I usually go for happy hour. The white pizza is by far one of the best I’ve ever had. Nice atmosphere inside but outside seating is also nice for a small group of people. Definitely recommend.

I've been to Grappa more frequently for happy hour, but their dinner never disappoints! Their staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious. I love their outdoor patio too, it's such a nice setting. One of my favorite date night spots!

Our server Erica was phenomenal. The food was good, but for the price point, I expected a little better. The calamari was very good. The burger was ordered med rare and it was med to med well. But, it was delicious. The carbonara was ok, but very heavy and unimpressive. The tiramisu was unique and delicious. More than enough for two. Our service was fantastic.

Perfect cute place for a date night with beautiful ambience, food that taste divine and very friendly staff.
I placed a special request to them to get a cake. Once the food was complete, they made sure to amaze and surprise us with cheese-cake.

This was our second visit (over two years) and the issues that were there last time remain. First, the food is very good and well prepared/presented. Our server was great and TRIED to make our visit more pleasant, however
We had made a reservation noting that we were celebrating a birthday. The table we were given was on the hallway to the bathroom and near the conference room in the restaurant. It was also in the bar area. It was a 6-top that was broken apart for the two of us. Note that there were plenty of other tables in a much more private set up available, and remained open our entire 2+ hour meal duration. A three person party was shortly thereafter seated in the other 4-top of our split 6-top.....with all the other open tables. The party in the bar that began after that spilled over to just a table or so away from us. Clearly the ambience for the occasion was lost. Important to note that although we not in suit and dress, we were well attired.

Our meal was clearly delayed for what we told was a party that was taking the attention of the kitchen. This could be somewhat understood IF the three top sharing our 6-top had not been fully served and completed their meal before we received our meal.

If you wish to order a carry out meal, the food is quite good. If you are looking for a place to enjoy the meal, go elsewhere.

The pork special was delicious with potatoes and Brussel sprouts, but there was a very odd cold quinoa salad with cranberry on the side. It just seemed like it didn’t belong and shouldn’t have been on the plate. Calamari was delicious but lukewarm.

We thought everything was great. They did forget to bring us our salads but we were having such a nice time we didn’t even remember them until the next day. Never really considered Grappa because it was in a hotel but it’s a great place and really nice space.

we were seated promptly for our reservation and please to have a regular table rather than the high top stated on the reservation. The food was delicious and well prepared; Porterhouse for two was cooked exactly as requested (medium rare); accompanying fingerling potatoes and mushrooms were tasty. The accompanying Bordelaise sauce was perfect with the dish. Portion was more than generous. ssert was a Meyer lemon tart; perfect after a heavy meal. House salad was fresh with a nice house dressing. warm bread and butter served with an olive oil/balsamic mix and spices was a nice addition. Although the table arranged on a bench are close together we didn't mind; it added to the ambience!

The food was absolutely excellent. Our only complaint is that the tables are WAY too close together. We heard everyone's conversations and I'm sure they heard ours. It was very difficult to squeeze through to sit down.

Food was good, but it was way too loud. The open floor plan traps and echos all the noise and you can hear the kitchen staff yelling to each other constantly. Couldnt hear the server as she listed the specials and conversation was difficult.

We had dinner on New Year’s Eve. My daughter has celiac and the staff was very accommodating. Her meal was made without gluten and they were extremely careful in avoiding cross contamination. We will definitely go back soon. Highly recommend the salmon. It was delicious.
