Delicious food! This was my second time there. Last time I sat at the bar, this time we were upstairs. I would recommend the first floor for the warm ambiance, second floor if you prefer cozy and quiet. The staff is just wonderful by the way!

The food is priced about right -- you're not getting a deal, but definitely worth the price. Portions are small, but still filling. If you like elegant, straightforward, flavorful food, this is for you!

Three of us went for lunch thinking it was an Italian restaurant. Well, maybe it is since they had a few items. But the atmosphere, in an House with two floors of tables, reminded me of what I think is a ladies tea parlor. Nothing wrong with it but it doesn't fit the bill. Our lunches were salad plates, tasty and healthy. Wait staff were efficient. A nice spot after visiting the art on 5th Avenue.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Grazie. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It's a small quiet downstairs in a brownstone kind of place. They do have upstairs seating but we didn't see it. Wonderful experience. Will go back again.

Stopped here for brunch before spending a rainy Sunday at the Met. The food was very good, and the wait staff was very attentive.

After a busy day in the city, my teenage daughter and I came here for dinner before a show. It was quiet and quaint. The staff was friendly and timely and the food was delicious. After a day of racing around Time Square, Central Park, and The Met, this was the perfect place for a quiet dinner out.

This is a quite small and intimate spot. A little old fashioned but pleasant and quiet at lunch. My companion thoroughly enjoyed her prix fixe lunch at $29.00 and I had a crab sandwich which was tasty but not really a sandwich. Our waiter was friendly but could have been more attentive. Overall, I recommend the place although it's a little expensive for lunch.

It was a mid-week lunch with a friend that most others there too seemed to be sharing: Pleasant quiet atmosphere. The menu has an excellent limited selection, including prix fixe. At times the waitress seemed too eager to push us along with our meal but overall an entirely pleasant experience.

My husband and I came to this restaurant after reading about it on trip advisor and seeing that it got very good reviews. The restaurant was not crowded at 8 PM and we were quickly seated upstairs by The windows. The food was very good and service was attentive but not interested. Our waitress was excellent, responsive, and very pleasant.

Very good food and service. A throw back restaurant to 50 and 60. Decor needs sprucing up. Table clothes should be part of restaurant.

I have to say that I was disappointed with Grazie. First of all, I think it could use a facelift. A little old and dirty looking (rugs, walls, upstairs windows). I can get over all of that if the food is good though. The prices were very fair, and the selection was good, but the food had NO taste! It was SO bland. Flavorless.

I was very satisfied with Grazie. We were seated very promptly by a courteous staff, with several options. They have two floors and we sat on the second floor and had the room to ourselves for most of the time. Our orders came in a reasonable time and the staff checked in on us from time to time throughout our meal. The food was excellent and authentic (you really have to try the tiramisu). My date and I were there for about 2 hours and felt quite relaxed with the atmosphere, and were never rushed. I will definitely dine here again should the occasion arise.

I knew this place would be tasty and quiet. Quiet is the most important when you want to have a relaxed conversation. Service was friendly and food good. I think there are a number of regulars

We've enjoyed dinner here, but brunch was a disappointment. Egg dishes were dry and salads bland. Service was attentive and the booth was comfortable. Will go back some evening.

Had an excellent waitress, excellent service. Continued to refill our water glasses. Fritta dish of fried calamari and shrimp were great. The ragu with braised short ribs were great as well! No complaints whatsoever!

Food was outstanding, arugula and beet salad perfect, octopus was cooked exactly right and Branzino was perfectly cooked.... except they were supposed to debone the whole fish but I do not down grade because it was so well prepared I didn't care about the bones.
