We were next to the door so every time the door opened, you could hear the large party in the lobby. It was also noisy with several parties near us. But the server was excellent given how busy they were.

Seated right away. Server attended to us immediately. Huge thank you to Eric for checking with us periodically to see if we needed anything. And another thank you to Eric for recommending a good wine when the one we wanted wasn't available. Food was hot on arrival and very tasty.
The venue is lovely and roomy.
Great evening for a special event.

Grappa had a wonderful menu with plenty of options. Rebecca was a responsive server that was easy to communicate with. My family was just having a holiday outing and sampled many of the appetizers and enjoyed all of our main entrees. We will be back in the future!

Great food, but small portions for the price. Specifically the large plate, pasta dish was more of a small plate size. Great service and pretty atmosphere!

Good food and excellent service. Quantity of choices was moderate, but both of our meals were very tasty. Service was attentive and informative as to describing and recommending selections. A bit loud, but probably due to sizable crowd. Overall experience was very good.

The seating was beautiful as was the decorations during the Christmas season. The sever has very good and timely. The food was outstanding and the presentation was superb. All four of us raved about our choice for dinner. The only disappointment was we were too satisfied to order any desert. We may have to start with that next time. thank you for a wonderful dinner experience.

Birthday! The food is not of good quality, the drink takes a long time and they do not have a suitable person for drinks and it does not taste good, the food is not very slow but it does not have the quality or good taste, the menu is very small, not happy and I spent a lot of money on that place

Went for Thanksgiving. Grappa is a nicely designed space--lots of natural light, and an open feeling, great lighting. I had a turkey dinner. The low point of that was the turkey--tasted like pressed meat. The salmon was good but would have been better without the shared cedar plank. The kale salad components were very good but they were drenched with dressing which undid the pleasure. The mushroom side order was very good. The Old Fashion cocktail was undrinkably sweet and chalky. The Manhattan cocktail was better than average. The Tiramisu dessert was ok but would be better without the unappreciated chocolate chips. Service was okay until our waitress started pressing us to leave by requesting our dessert order before we were finished eating our entree.

Ambience is great, service was ok, never asked if we wanted dessert. My meal was delicious, the carbonara was very tasty. My sister in laws pizza had a "peculiar " flavor for her taste, and my arancini was ice cold when served

The food ordered which included a pork shank gluten free dish was delicious and well composed. Gluten free apps were very limited though and fried options were not available as to a shared fryer. Drinks were enjoyable and reasonable. The restaurant was in a great neighborhood in Rochester allowing for a nice stroll afterward

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.
