Gratzi - Ann Arbor
Ask about our Birthday Meal Deal!
We had a lovely time at Gratzi! Our waitress was absolutely amazing, so fun and sweet and friendly! We shared a lot of laughs with her and had such a great time. Our food was absolutely divine as well, and we thoroughly expect to return!
Really great food, awesome service, and overall a great experience. Will definitely be coming back here again!
Always a delicious meal and knowledgeable servers. I've never had a bad meal here
Excellent service and delicious food!
As always, the food was great. Only issue was at the start when they couldn't find our Opentable reservation but they were able to accommodate us.
Definitely yes! A very enjoyable evening with good friends and great atmosphere, service and dinner choices!
A.very.pleasant and enjoyable experience. Food, service and attention to detail was excellent.
The atmosphere is beautiful here. We had our first date here 19 years ago, so we were excited to come again. We were seated in just about the worst spot upstairs--right at the staircase and the server's station where they ripped tabletop paper, retrieved" to go" boxes, etc. There were several tables to choose from, and why I didn't ask to move is beyond me. I asked the server about the burrata--he had never tried it. I asked him what he recommended between two pastas--he had never tried one of them. I ordered the gnocci with lobster, and the papparadelle came out. I had to wait, but mine did come out quickly. It was mediocre, although the chicken marsala was terrific. Seat choice and service were poor, and your staff should have tasted everything on your menu.
Fantastic table, wonderful food, excellent service!
The food was very disappointing. My veal scaloppine was more like pasta with a few pieces of veal, and the pasta was undercooked.
It was a good, not an overly great experience. My wife's soup was fantastic, here salad was very good. My pasta dish was ok. It had been many years since we were there, and back then my experience was amazing. This experience was somewhat of a disappointment compared to what I remember. Still a wonderful place.
I called in advance to let the restaurant know we were celebrating my husbands birthday. When we checked in the host said happy birthday and greeted us warmly. Unfortunately our server was not very interested in us and brought us the bill without being asked and without offering the dessert menu or coffee. So we went somewhere else for dessert. Was bummed as I was hoping for a better experience.
Great food. It took a long time for food to come and even longer for dessert. Otherwise, overall good experience.
Meal wine was also of course the best of the state.
We've always loved Gratzi. We love the historic site and beautifully decorated interior! Thank you for enriching Ann Arbor with your fine food and ambiance.
Our server, Thomas, was excellent! Very good food. Gets too loud as more tables fill up.
We had never been to Gratzi, and chose it because of the menu and its proximity to The Ark, where we were going to see a show. The entire experience was excellent. Everyone was friendly from the first greeting. Our waiter (Tom) was exceptional. He was always there if we needed him, but did not hover around when we didn't. Everything we ordered was excellent. We had appetizers, soup, main dishes and salads. No room for desert but I saw some good looking cake at the table next to us. I would recommend this to a friend and hope to return. Thank you.
The whole experience was great. Being from an Italian family I would say the food was great
Great service at the bar from Edgar and then the hostess and manager took care of us to make sure we were comfortable with our table. Treated me extra special with it being my birthday. Would definitely go back for other event celebrations.
The scallops were tough and rubbery and soaking in a mustard sauce that removed their sweetness from the browning. The salmon was overcooked and dry, not light, flaky and moist. I found the music level to be set to high and caused me to shout at people in my booth. Mac's Seafood in Saline is a better choice.
The food had complex flavors and wasn’t impressive.
Anniversary, had put it on our reservation. Sat us at a middle table next to server station and entrance to bar. Food was good but not great, the only saving grace was our server very personable and really loved working there. Will not go back anytime soon.
Gratzi has the most amazing Italian Food in Downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan
Excellent food and fabulous service
Overrated food and expensive. Go somewhere authentic.
Food and ambiance were fantastic but we were sorely disappointed with the service we received. The server was inattentive and disinterested. It wouldn't have been such a big deal if we weren't paying well over $100 for a dinner for 2.
I'm sorry to say the food was actually quite average. I worry quality has dropped over the last few years.
For example, my Pasta Bolognese was very disappointing--having replaced the expected delicately flavored meal sauce with large cubes of overly well-done beef. My husband's Eggplant Parmesan was ho-hum.
Too big portions do not make up for quality!
Love Gratzi - however I was disappointed with this visit. When we made the reservation I requested to be seated at the front window booth. The restaurant called to confirm our reservations two days prior to our visit, and confirmed that we would be seated in the front window booth.
When we arrived they had already sat a party in our booth, and put us at a table in the middle of the restaurant in a very "busy" area.
My 84 year old father was with us - much easier for him to visit with the family in the booth, it is also quieter there so he has an easier time hearing conversations and interacting with everyone.
So my complaint is this - I understand you can't always honor special seating requests - but don't confirm two days before the reservation that we will indeed have the seat we requested and then give it away 15 minutes before our reservation time!
All good per usual (even though my wife’s fave dish — Lobster Spaghetti— is no longer on the menu #where’sthelobster)
Overall, a very good experience. Good menu options, service was great and the management was awesome!
Nicole was our favorite!!!! Bestie and I went out to dinner for a girls night and had THE BEST time! Great food, atmosphere and staff!
We drove an hour to come to dinner and it was well worth the drive!
The restaurant wasn’t full, yet we were seated across from a very loud, obnoxious party of eight. They ruined the experience for us. Dinner was mediocre.
We had just in time reservations for 15 that was nicely accommodated. The food was great and the service was well coordinated among multiple wait staff. Due to business restrictions we had to have multiple checks and this was managed seamlessly.
From decor to service to food, it was a perfect date night with my man. Ceasar salad was delicious. My pasta dish was a little bit to healthy for my liking. Still had good flavor though. We will deff be back on 1/2 wine night to try something else.
Amazing ambiance. Perfect place for an intimate Friday/Saturday night dinner
Very friendly staff, makes you feel welcome from the minute you walk in! Service and food were outstanding!
Our server was so amazing. The food was quite good. The bread and Olive oil is the BEST in Ann Arbor. Can’t wait to return again.
Wonderful experience celebrating my birthday at Gratzi. I will be back!
We have been to Gratzi a few times now. Food is always very good. We love the ambiance of the place, and the service is always top notch!
