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.

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.

Food and service were both very uneven. I hold the kitchen responsible not the server. The Sea Bass was the only dish out of four that was really excellently prepared. The hot appetizers arrived cold, the manager comped them off the check. Is the problem sitting upstairs too far from the kitchen?The veal sauce was floury and another dish was much spicy than advertised.
We were so hopeful that the new chef would make us regulars again but now we are not sure if we should even give another try.

Lower than the typical Gratzi experience. We seemed to have an inexperienced waitress, who didn’t know how to stagger the items we ordered (too many gaps in the meal), didn’t tell us about the cheeses on our cheese plate, and didn’t bring out a candle for my husband’s birthday dessert. Even when we mentioned it to her, she still didn’t correct it. Not the nice meal out that we have become accustomed to.

The meal was excellent! They don't advertise this, but they have gluten-free pasta as a side so it's easy for them to accommodate a gluten-free diet. I had the NY strip and it is my favorite dish at Gratzi's so far.

We really enjoyed the shrimp wrapped in prosciutto appetizer. The special sea bass with arugula was excellent. The pasta dishes (bow tie w/ shrimp and salmon with gnocchi) were just okay. The gnocchi was undercooked and gummy. Wine was great. Service was okay. Soup was brought with the meal instead of before. Not good.

Our daughter was in town, and asked us to make reservations here -- one of her favorite restaurants. We had a lovely evening. The food was outstanding, especially the sea bass, and the waiter attentive, but not intrusive. The restaurant was crowded since it was the Saturday following Valentine's Day. We had a memorable evening, celebrating our daughter's birthday. I highly recommend this place for special occasions, or days you'd like to make special.

This was our first visit to Gratzi. My wife and I ordered the Valentines day special that included a small cut of filet and lobster gnocchi. Both were good but the filet was outstanding as was that potatoes and broccoli rabe served with it. The dis was very simple and the potatoes were prepared with a truffle ingredient. We will definitely be back.

Birthday dinner. Excellent service. Received complimentary after dinner drink and dessert. We were unable to go on my son’s actual birthday because of weather, but restaurant gave us a rain check good for two weeks. Generous birthday discount. Food very good overall and generous portions. Lobster bisque tasty but a little thin. Excellent wine list.
