We have been here previously but we’re very disappointed with this visit. Ordered spaghetti and it has so much water it was like soup. Our appetizer arrived well after we finished our meal. Was not very impressed with the food quality

Wow! Once again the wait staff and chefs do not disappoint. We brought our dear friends who are in town for 2 days. They absolutely loved the restaurant. They have eaten at many of our well known fine restaurants in Seattle. They said that this was by far their best meal. Thank you so much for taking care of us and making our evening exceptional

Reserved a table for our anniversary, the table provided was a folding table next to entry isle. It was very cold out and every time the door opened a cold blast of air hit me. Service and food was good but wishing I wore a sweater was a disappointment.

Good place. But salty salty SALTY!
We loved the halibut-even though over salted.
Pasta was good too. Just too salty.
Good wine. I like that they offer half bottles. Good service.
$130 for 3 with one half bottle of wine. (Driver did not partake).
We have fun and enjoyed the experience.

I had trouble finding this restaurant, as it is tucked away off the parkway in an interior corner of a strip mall. At 6:30 I pulled over, called the restaurant, identified myself and said I had a 6:30 reservation and was on Southcenter parkway, but couldn't find them. The young lady who answered the phone gave us some landmarks to find the restaurant, and we were there just a few minutes later -- but walked in to find that our table had been given away! When I pointed out that I had called in to let them know we were nearby, the young man at the reception desk just shrugged his shoulders and said "I don't see no note by your reservation. You were late, we gave your table away." The scene at the door was chaotic, and there was no one person who seemed to be in charge at the reception desk. After standing in the narrow entryway while numerous other parties arriving later were seated, we were finally were given a table a little after 7 PM. No one apologized for our trouble or gave the slightest indication that they cared that they had made an error. When our food finally arrived, it was in fact quite good. This is a tiny little restaurant in a strip-mall storefront, and they are obviously doing something right, because it was continuously busy the whole time we were there. But there are plenty of good restaurants in the Seattle area that treat their customers with courtesy. There is no need to go to a place that is thoughtless, disorganized and rude, as this one was.

My wife and a friend ordered the seafood pasta. One dish came with very little pasta and all of the seafood. The other dish came with a tiny bit of seafood and all of the pasta. Our server did not come to the table and ask us how our meals were. She did not come by until we were done eating. We told her about the problem with the two pastas. She mentioned it to the manager and he told her he would mention it to the chef. That was it. No offer to remove the meager dish from our bill. No apology for not coming to the table sooner. We have been eating at Grazie for many years. This was the last time.

Grazie's never disappoints. It's always good to see Fernando. He never hesitates to acknowledge us when he sees us and has a great personality. He's warm and friendly, as is the other gentleman who has been there about 14 years, I'm sorry I don't know his name. They are both great assets to the restaurant.

This time we sat at the bar because when I changed my reservation time, it changed the 3 guests to 2 and a table wasn't available. Our goddaughter was in town and we wanted her to try the food at Grazie. She loved it. Like us, she fell in love with the olive oil dip. She said she was going to ask if she could get the recipe, I told her it wasn't happening. She then said, well maybe I can get some to go, again I told her it wasn't happening. That I've tried. :) The warm spinach salad is so delicious. I was also happy to learn that they had gluten free fresh fettucine noodles. Many restaurants don't serve it fresh. They do boil it in the same water as the other pasta (even though the Chef told me water is in constant movement in and out. If you're celiac, ask them to cook it in a separate pan. 10 stars. Love them! If you haven't tried them, do so. You won't be sorry.
