A pursuit for knowledge was the stimulus and continues to be the driving force behind Chef Niven’s career. Ghee means PURE and has a symbolic meaning both spiritually and in the kitchen of an Indian home. The restaurant encompass traditional Indian home cooking, ingredient driven using local artisan purveyors. Chef Niven highlights the experience of dining at Ghee: "I want to my guests to walk into Ghee with the sense of entering my home. I want them to feel at home. I want them to smell the aromas and spices and get more engaged in their meal. One of the things that I always tell my cooks is, ask questions, be inquisitive if you don’t know. I want the same for my guests."

The service was mediocre. I understand they are short staffed but the experience was nothing out of the ordinary. Price points and quality do not match. The waitress even hesitated to give us a second menu and claimed they are disposable.

Mistake with the food which is okay. But, after waiting 38 minutes for it to be fixed. We were still charged. But, the food is good and service was good.

I love this place and the food is very good but the hostess wasn’t very nice.
The place was empty and she kept on telling us we had to sit outside even having reservations...
I guess she wasn’t experienced but we’ll go back for the food.

Went for dinner with inlaws, we sat outside in the right corner. The server completely forgot about us multiple times. We had to flag him down a few times when we wanted to order and have the table cleaned up (we sat 30 mins waiting for the table to be cleared). The food was phenomenal but better service is needed.

Ghee was pretty underwhelming considering it’s reputation. The chicken tikka masala was great but the rest of the dishes were bland and uninspiring.

Went to ghee with my family since we had heard it was one of the top rated Indian spots in the country. Unfortunately the food didn’t live up to the hype. It was flavorful but not in the Indian sense. Each dish lacked the punch of flavor that you expect when having Indian, and sometimes lacked a touch of salt. We had the avocado bhel, cauliflower, eggplant, lamb belly, fish curry. kale rice, garlic naan and raita. Service was ok, restaurant wasn’t crowded but it lacked urgency to move the meal along. Dishes were left empty for quite sometime and when we did receive service 3 people would ask us the same question in succession. Being Indian I was expecting more from a top rate Indian restaurant. I would try it again though.

It was great to find an Indian Food restaurant that thoughtfully sources its ingredients and wonderfully balances flavors. 75% of the items on the menu were Gluten-Free, which made us feel at home with our food allergies. We got to enjoy the Chatt and Pakoras, as well as the Channa Masala, Tikka Masala and the Grilled Corn. The children loved the Mango Lassi.

Ghee never fails to disappoint. We've brought out-of-town guests here a number of times, and have always been impressed by the quality of both the food and the service. The plantain chaat, the tilefish curry, and the sticky date care are our perennial favorites, but I don't think we've ever had a dish here that was anything less than delicious.

The hostess was very rude, they treated us like a walk in and asked us to seat at the bar and wait and see if a table open up despite the fact of making a reservation. It was a party of 2.

We sat there and ordered some wine to wait for a table to be ready. When asked the hostess about the table she said that we needed to wait for at least 2 hours and made us feel it was our fault.

At no moment they tries to accommodate us or look for an alternative solution and pretty much gave us no option other than leaving.

Food looks delicious and we would still like to try it. We understand it’s a small place but it wasn’t packed and how difficult can it be to accommodate a party of 2.

We didn’t feel welcome, they definitely need to better the service.

Innovative Indian plus riffs on classics. Plenty of vegetarian options too and seasonal vegetables. Service was outstanding and the food paced well. We easily ordered 1/2 the menu (two adults/two teenagers) and thoroughly enjoyed. Standouts: green millet, saag paneer, smoked lamb neck, green beans, mushroom curry.
