Grasing’s, located in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, lies along the Pacific Coast in Central California in Monterey County. It is 120 miles south of San Francisco, 70 miles south of San Jose and 350 miles north of Los Angeles.

Celebrity chef partners, Kurt Grasing and Narsai David, truly created a gem. Fancifully designed in warm hues and modern art work, Grasing’s sets the stage for entertaining that is at once festive and intimate. From friendly and professional service, an award winning wine list and seasonally inspired cocktails to the fresh and sustainable local ingredients are only a few reasons why Grasing’s still receives rave reviews from the press.

Very thoughtful service, excellent food and surprisingly nice ambiance- cozy- great lighting. Can’t wait to return. Portions in the large size - which in my experience is unusual for such good food and presentation. Could have split each entree.
Excellent experience.

Went for first time. Celebrating our Anniversary.
The table setting, service , wine list and food were all terrific.
We had the onion rings (small portion) as a starter - maybe better as a side with a steak main course. Steaks were cooked as requested, very good!
Wine assistance was wonderful - Chris was a big help in choosing the wine.
Nice touch was the celebatory dessert they did for us!

Definitely will return soon!

My wife and I came to Carmel for a birthday weekend. Ask the concierge if she knew of a good steakhouse. She recommended Grasing.I had an excellent steak. It will be on my list to eat every time we come to Carmel!

This was a great place for our birthday dinner. Having mentioned our birthdays on the reservation, there was a small decoration on the table, the server wished us a happy birthday, and the dessert we chose was on the house! The pork chop was out of this world and we enjoyed dinner seated by the window, which was an added plus. It was lively, but not so loud that you couldn't comfortably converse.

Hostess wanted to seat us at a 4 top table, I’ve worked in the industry and said we have no problem sitting at a 2 top since we are only 2 people. And she kind of gave us attitude as if we were the ones being picky when we were trying to respect the busy restaurant.

Also not sure why the Restaurant Told open table that we did not show up for our reservation.

Food was delicious, lobster Mac was good. Gin was tasty

Grasing's was delightful! The food was absolutely terrific and their wine by the glass selection was excellent. Our special occasion was a get together of 6 old and dear friends. The hostess decorated the table with little silver cut-outs. Several of us had a salmon ceasar salad which included a hunk of salmon that was perfectly prepared and very generous. The meal was over the top delighted!

We ordered Calamari n Crab Cakes for Apps, follpwed by Chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries and Fish of the day.
All the dishes were perfectly made, tasted yumm! And left us wanting for more, although our stomachs were full. We succumbed to the desert menu n ordered the apple caramel pudding that was super moist n delish. I paired fish n calamari with a Reisling from Del Terra, Monterey that balanced all the flavors well.
In all a very satisfying experience.
Will come again, if in the area!

This was a great "date night" locale! The food was amazing! I had the paella (the appetizer portion) for my meal and it was simply out of this world!!! I haven't had a paella any better! My hubby had the scallops and they were huge but tender and tasty! This was the perfect night out with my love!

We were there for New Year’s Eve dinner. This is usually a tough night for restaurants because of the demands on staff and kitchen. Nevertheless, Grasing’s did a superior job. The food was very good but the service was superior, particularly our waiter (Mike).
