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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Everything was as I hoped when making the reservation. We asked for and got a quiet booth. The waiter and manager were attentive, my Caesar salad was delicious. My friend’s chicken dish was well received.
The expensive Chianti was less wonderful than hoped for; I asked for a side of pasta that ended up being more food than I needed and I made a mistake in my sauce preference. Neither of these issues were the fault of the restaurant and neither detracted from a lovely meal and meeting with an old friend.
