    I love this place! The only thing that wasn’t outstanding this time around (and out of their control) was our table was by the front door. Ppl piling in after a Hawks victory looking for a bite made it very cold at our table. You definitely need reservations during a home game here! Otherwise this place is a MUST when you visit. The specialty drinks are delicious. Adam is always our server and is great, along with the super bubbly hostess!

    Very vibrant night with students moving in, the doors were open to the outside with live music being played in the ped mall. We had a larger party and the servers did a great job of catering to all of our needs, including making a separate run to get a beverage from elsewhere that they had sold out of. Regular food portions were huge, definitely will get a second meal out of this! Food quality was excellent too.

    We went to graze for the 21st Birthday of my boyfriend! We got a free cocktail because we are part of the loyalty program and it tasted delicious!! We ate the NY strip and fries which were served with excellent chimi churi as well as a garlic aioli for the fries (so good!) the wait staff was also very pleasant and our server was great. Thank you for making his birthday wonderful!

    We had a great time dining at Graze. I utilized OpenTable to hold a reservation in on this Valentine's weekend and it worked out great. The food was fantastic and the cocktails were wonderfully made. What I'm most impressed with is our server. Shoutout to Jack for taking care of us the whole night. He was very attentive, but also gave us enough privacy to enjoy our food and drinks. I highly recommend Graze for any dining occasion.

Chicken Lips and grilled fish tacos were amazing! Would like to have seen more "non-fried/breaded" options. Maybe a grilled calamari?
