Grazie Ristorante - Southcenter Ratings and Reviews
We love Grazie as do a lot of other folks. Great to have Open Table to get reservations by seating type. For couples, we recommend the tall seating which is in a small corner room that is much quieter than the dining room. We also enjoy sitting at the bar (only a few seats) watching the chef and helper create the dishes.
Friday night we had the veal marsala...delicious and the special which was filet in a lovely sauce. Lunch today was the left overs from Friday night and we are both stuffed again!
One tip, if you do not care much for orso, we don't, they will substitute almost any pasta for your side...a definite plus!
Grazie Ristorante is the best option for proper Italian food in the Southcenter area, but it's small so be sure to make reservations. The walls are smooth and the whole restaurant space is one big rectangle, so it can become too noisy for some. There is an open kitchen area visible to most tables, so you can see bursts of flames and even smell food being cooked. They will start you with seasoned olive oil to dip bread in, rather than butter, so you know you're in a real Italian restaurant. The food is rich and delicious, better than prices suggest, and the servers seem happy and well mannered.
Scheduled a reservation a week ahead of time for a special occasion and asked for a space more romantic; however, was sat at a folding table in front of the bar which was hit several times by staff. Steak was over done and sauce had too much vinegar on it. Very, very disappointing.
Normally we dine at Grazi in Canyon Park but had to pick up someone at the airport at 8:30. Given Friday night traffic, we elected to dine at Grazi in South Center on our way to the airport having dined there many years earlier. We had forgotten how much smaller the restaurant is than the Canyon Park location. With every table occupied and being in a smaller space, the noise level was higher than at most restaruants. No matter. Their menu has fewer offerings but we found selections OK. My wife enjoyed their Pumkin Ravioli while I had two small filet mignon which were cooked to perfection with a delightful Gorganzola sauce. The young lady who served us had been with the restaurant a short time so was still learning the menu, etc. She did a fine job, with a smile. Thank you.
This is a cozy neighborhood place with friendly service, but the tables are crowded and the restaurant is dark. The sautéed calimari made a tasty appetizer. The main dishes took at least 30 minutes to arrive. My ‘veal marsala’ was dry and tough, and after several bites I figured out why - the waiter brought me chicken Marsala instead, and it was some of the most over-cooked chicken I’ve had. Because it was so dark at our table, and the dish was so smothered in oil, it took a while to figure out what on earth I was eating. By the time the waiter checked on us, we were half finished with our entrees, and there was no way we could wait another half hour for a replacement. So not only did they make the wrong dish for me, but they did not offer to take it off the check, and the meal I did not order was neither tasty nor well-prepared.
The bill was also surprisingly high for the quality of food and the crowded setting. I’ve had worse, but one can do much better for the money.
This restaurant was such a fun and delicious experience. We were able to make a reservation for the same day, and we were seated right away when we arrived. April was so knowledgeable about the menu, and gave us wonderful recommendations through all the courses of our meal, as well as shared some really great stories about the restaurant with us. We will definitely be coming back, and we're looking forward to the day. :-)
This place was average for me. I had the spinach salad which had all the makings of being delicious if it wasn’t dripping with dressing. I mean dripping. The spinach was so wilted from it it looked cooked. My friends didn’t comment one way or the other on their meals (spaghetti & Meatballs & Gorgonzola Tortellini) but they seemed content. I really liked my wine which was chosen by the waitress. It was the dessert that was such a disappointment. We got the chocolate cannoli (waxy chocolate and unsweetened filling), chocolate mouse cake (fell flat) with raspberry sauce and the turtle cheesecake (nut crust was gross-why wasn’t caramel used to bind them?). I left mine uneaten and got to pay $6 for it. I also thought the waitress was great except she was ready for us to leave and let us know by bringing the check with out asking if we wanted anything else.
We love Grazie! Every time we go we enjoy the food, order the featured Italian wine and feel well served. You definitely want reservations, even during the week, and a short wait is still the norm.
Meals this trip were rack of lamb, delicious, mixed seafood grill, fantastic, and fettuccine alfredo rich and tasty. And my 4 month old granddaughter slept through the meal what is not to like!
We love Grazie's! The food is always consistently amazing!!! And the wine pairing just adds to the delicious experience. The ambiance is rich and welcoming. Grazie's is always busy, but the noise level, quality of service, and delicious food just enhances the whole experience.
We love coming to Grazie's and the friendly, professional staff make us feel like we are coming home. Special shout out to Nicole, Fernando, and staff for embodying the true Grazie's Spirit of 'l'amore della famiglia italiana e l'ospitalità' (Italian: family, love, and hospitality)!
We double dated with another couple and we had never been to this restaurant but it had superb reviews on Trip Advisor! We were raving about the food and what a wonderful dinner all during the meal and on the way home! The food was delicious, our waitress was superb, the ambiance was nice, the restaurant clean, and overall we will definitely be coming back.
This was our second time at Grazie, and I wondered whether it had changed ownership. The first time (maybe 7 months ago), all our food was outstanding, the atmosphere was upbeat, and the service was excellent. This time, the food was okay, and the service was fast, but it continuously felt as if they were trying to get us out of there asap. (We were on time for our reservation, and the restaurant was half empty.) The waitress was unfamiliar with the wine offerings. The calamari fritti (which had been tender at the last visit) was rubbery, and the Linguini Marco was simply not very good (including the chicken). The Puttanesca and the Caesar salad were pretty good, but not as stellar as the time before. Maybe it was just a different chef. If we're in the area, we might give it a third try, but would not go out of our way to eat there again.
What a great find. We were looking for a spot for a group dinner (7 people) on a Wednesday night and found this place on Open Table. We arrived early for our reservation and were told by the hostess that we couldn't stand in their very tiny entrance and to wait outside which half of the group did. The manager (or owner) overheard and came over and apologized. Said we could stand anywhere we wanted :-) We then asked the hostess if we could order drinks from the counter (bar?) and she said only if there was an available waiter who was willing to take our order. Jean-Luc immediately came over and said no problem I can get you drinks. Manager/owner delivered our drinks with a flourish and smile. Jean-Luc turned out to be our waiter and he was fantastic. The food was out of this world. Salmon special had so much flavor and was cooked perfectly. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience despite the somewhat surly hostess. I would definitely recommend this place. It's small so make reservations and be prepared for a delicious food experience.
Always enjoy dining at Grazie. I try to make it a point to visit the establishment 1-2 times monthly. Service is great, staff is pleasing, and they always keep the bread coming and the glasses full of water. The wine selection is good. Spinach salad is one of the best I have come across and the filleto gorgonzola is consistently delicious every time. I was surprised at the size of the Lasagna, as most places server a small portion, but here at Grazie, the portion is the best bang for buck!
