Gratzi - Ann Arbor Ratings and Reviews
Visited Gratzi for Ann Arbor Restaurant Week. No complaints here! The food was great - the options for the restaurant week menu were awesome too! I had the calamari flash fried app and the salmon with gnocchi for my entree. Both were done perfectly. The warm bread for the table was also a nice touch. Great dinner and quality service!
This was the first time we visited Gratzis. The restaurant was a little crowded as they try to maximize the number of tables. Expect to bump into people at the neighboring table. The restaurant is very open so it can get a bit noisy with all of the conversations. The dinner was nice but maybe a bit expensive. We had the Salmon and the Mediterranean Sea Bass, both were prepared perfectly. I would recommend this restaurant as one of the nicer in Ann Arbor. Watching the clientele, I would recommend dressing a little nicer for dinner.
We reserved a table for New Year's Eve. I called the restaurant to add a high chair to our 4 people reservation. When we arrived they could not accomdate a high chair. They offered a booster which is normally fine. However the booth was right next to the kitchen. We love Gratzi and the food is usually outstanding. The Pollo Marsala was overly salty and the scallop dish was a great disappointment. The other 2 dishes were good. I hope this is just an anomaly. We will try Gratzi again.
Went for Christmas Eve dinner. The waitstaff and managers did not want to be there and the service reflected that. Have frequented this restaurant and other Main St. Restaurants many times and have never experienced the poor service we received this evening. It was not limited to our server- everyone in the restaurant this evening seemed like the just didn't want to be there- from the manager on down.
We meet with the same friends each year on Christmas Eve for late lunch, and always go to Gratzi's because we can trust the service to be good and professional, and the food to be high quality. This year was no different--snow was falling outside, we had a nice window table with a good view--it was very festive. The waitress seemed to want to move things along, but took the hint that we were not in a rush and wanted to savor both the company and the food. There isn't another restaurant in Ann Arbor that can match the decor and ambience.
We started going to Gratzi on Christmas Eve and really enjoy it. The food is great for kids, adults, and seniors, both vegetarians and meat eaters. Pizza is a little small. Insalada mista, all shrimp dishes and pasta with marinara are all excellent! Loved my mimosa, too!
Went here, for the first time, with my family to celebrate graduation. The food was amazing. I got the sea bass and loved it. Everyone else loved their food as well. The service was great in the beginning, but thoroughly decreased the rest of the evening. Despite the service, would love to go back soon!
The food was generally of good quality given the price level at this location. The calamari was so-so, pasta rustica on the other hand quite tasty. Been there once before and remembered it for the espresso which I thought was among the very best I've had in Ann Arbor. No longer, it was way too diluted, too weak this time. Too bad. Service was very friendly but a bit uneven and haphazard. And this on a quiet weekday...
After an absence of a few years, we returned to Gratzi hoping to be as pleased with our experience as we had previously been there. While still an enjoyable place to dine, Gratzi seems to have lost the edge on high standards that we had always expected. Our plates looked a bit ‘tired’ when brought out, as though they were not freshly prepared and delivered. It seemed that quantity rather than high quality and freshness had become a goal. Flavors were ok. Prices were a bit lower than what we have become used to seeing in higher rated restaurants.
Service was attentive and friendly. Wine selections good. Lively atmosphere.
Had a pretty bad dinner with the family on Saturday night at Gratzi.
Meal started off well, cheese and meat tray and soups were great.
The first wrinkle was that it took over an hour from the time we finished our soups until we got our main course. The server came out about 30 minutes in to apologize for the delay and then came back 10 minutes later saying he didn't put in the order for our main courses and was taking ownership of the issue. Then it still took another 20-30 minutes to get our dishes. They offered to give free dessert and ended up giving our meat and cheese tray for free as compensation but it really didn't make up for it.
When the main courses finally came they were terrible. The char special was overcooked and under seasoned and came with vegetables that were pretty much uncooked, the lobster spaghetti came with a sauce that just tasted like canned tomato sauce (not spaghetti sauce even) and the lobster was super tough to the point that one person in our party tricked another into trying it and convincing him it was pork, the spaghetti was under cooked (no not al dente) to the point of being crunchy, and the lamb chops were tiny and mostly fat. Of the main courses, only the rabbit pasta was OK.
