The service was outstanding! Food was delicious - a great venue for visiting with colleagues!
As always Gravity Bistro did not disappoint- attentive service, great wine list and awesome food. This time we opted for lots of appetizers and shared them amongst us. The meatballs, beet salad and mussels where outstanding and the cheese selection plate was well put together. The salads were fresh and nicely, not heavy, dressed.
Friendly attentive service, nice selection on the menu and at the bar. Nothing was 'write home' amazing or memorable but we had some wine and cheese to start and enjoyed a nice beet salad and then a variety of folks at our table had short ribs, pasta, burger - all very good. Not cheap but we didn't feel it was too excessive for the price/area/quality.
Extremely expensive and very small portions of food. Especially disappointed with the cheese tray. Great wine but $20 for a modest glass.
I've ate at Gravity Bistro and Wine Bar a few different times. I think the food is really good, and their happy hour wines have been hits/misses. My only complaint is the service-- I've ate here and had great service, and also at other times have had bad service (i.e. ordered happy hour drinks and appetizers, and then never saw our waiter again to continue ordering drinks/dinner). Like I already said, so far all of the food has been good (i.e. prime filet with frites, the ragu pasta dish, etc.). I'd like to come back here again, but I just hope the service will be better in the future.
The food was great, I especially liked the rib eye steak.
One of our favorites. This was a New Years Eve dinner. My wife and I have dined at Gravity multiple times. I had pork tenderloin which was exquisite. My wife had prime rib which she raved about repeatedly. The accompanying touches were excellent. The restaurant was featuring a prix fixe menu that included more than we could comfortably consume so our server allowed us to dine ala carte. We each ordered the special "flight" of 3 champagnes which made the evening extra special. No negatives.
This experience was disappointing. The reservation was not honored (had to wait 20 minutes for a table), the noise level was entirely too loud, and the food was VERY slow. The service was mediocre at best. My biggest complaint was that it didn't seem like our entrees were even in the works until after our appetizers were finished. The main dishes took an extremely long time to arrive. I do not recommend this place-- there's so many better options nearby in downtown Palo Alto.
Great wine list and awesome good choices. Mussels, duck confit, appetizers and pasta were all exceptional. Something for everyone on the menu. The service was very attentive and quick.
We had a fabulous four course Pre Fixe Thanksgiving dinner at Gravity Bistro. We started with a veal croquette taster followed with an avocado tomato bruschetta toast. For my entree I had the turkey served over a sweet potato purée with stuffing and gravy, yumm! My husband opted for the petite filet served medium rare with a wild mushroom sauté with shaved brussel sprouts. For dessert we all had the chocolate cake with a very moist gooey center, very decadent. A great value for a four course holiday meal with great food, service and ambience.
The food was horrendous on a Sunday night. I don't think there was a chef in the kitchen the night I was there, and I'm not exaggerating.
The seared scallops were delicious. We each had a wine flight, which we really enjoyed tasting. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. The vibe was energetic and lively, without being too noisy. There was plenty of space between tables so it felt spacious.
The company that I was with made it a fun night, but Gravity was a let down. We were seated at this raised booth in the back of the restaurant (downstairs). It was too tall for our feet to reach the floor and the booth gave no support for feet like tall chairs do, so we were all uncomfortable and ended up sitting cross-legged. Odd set up. Service was spotty and slow (and the waiter just wasn't friendly). Food was so-so. Decent appetizers and wine but disappointing entrees.
Not good. Pasta was terrible. I had the radiatori and it was tasteless - watery, soft (overcooked) and the sauce was awful. Wife's ravioli was a bit better but not good. Wine and beer prices are outrageously high. Most wines $16 to $20 per glass. Beers were $12 to $14. Wife's appetizer cheese plate was good and my Burrata appetizer was good.
Not sure how this place stays in business. Mostly downstairs wine crowd. Young people dressed poorly - sneakers & jeans.
I have lived on the peninsula now for about 2 years and this was the 1st restaurant I did not like. I go out to dinner 1 or 2 x per week. And the Italian restaurants I have been too have all been very good. I am impressed overall with the restaurant scene here but this place was below average in terms of food and price value.
I was due for a bad one.
Very noisy, very slow service, said it was a birthday celebration... they forgot. Food was terrific!
