Huge portions. Terrific service
Great time at Grano! First visit there last night. Stylish decor, comfortable vibe and the food was very good! Amelia, our server, had the right combination of attentiveness but not hovering. The portions are literally huge so we split an entree between 2 people and brought home leftovers. John, the manager, was there to do anything for you. At the end of the meal, you’re offered complimentary limoncello, sambuca or zeppoli’s.
Lovely space, lively bar scene, great meal
My husband, mom, kids and I wanted to try out the “new” place in town. Pleasantly surprised by everything. The prices were slightly higher than I expected but the portions were very large and the quality was outstanding. It was more than worth it. Best of all was our server. She was incredible and put the cherry on top of a wonderful experience. We will be back!
Delicious food and friendly service!
New Place and we really enjoyed it. Very small, but they did a nice job with the location. Noise is a bit much as there are a lot of hard surfaces, but the food was excellent
Delicious meal, helpful service and beautiful decor and atmosphere! We can’t wait to go back again
Staff was very pleasant. Chicken parm was too well done, but otherwise food was okay. Nothing special to make me want to return.
The food was very good. (The shrimp scampi was more like a shrimp francese . Good, but not what we expected). Wine was nice as well. The decor is fabulous! Great atmosphere and the server was very attentive. Music was fun too. I’m definitely going back.
Went there last night for the first time. The food, service and drinks were really great. We will be back again soon.
Food was terribly overcooked
First time here and loved it! Great food, nice decor and ambience, and amazing service. ❤️
Excellent food and great service. Sleek setting with nice bar, too. Highly recommend!
The food was just OK… I’ve been here where it’s been much better. The broccoli rabe was tasteless (needed garlic), the Italian wedding soup was basically out of a can and the pizza was also fair..very little taste. The meatballs and ricotta were delicious and my favorite, the garlic lot knots, did not disappoint. The service is consistently very good and the restaurant and ambience are wonderful. Perhaps just an off day with the food.
Great food, drinks, and service! Can’t wait to return.
Honestly, the Chicken Franchaise had very little sauce and the sauce on the plate was gelatinous and coagulated like it had been around sitting for a while. A hit of lemon flavor like someone squirted some on to freshen it up at the last minute. I ordered grilled chicken on my arugula salad, which was really hot for a second then cold— it 100% was out of the microwave and 100% was not cooked then. The flavor was just off, maybe the microwave reheating over however it was originally cooked? The meatball appetizer was excellent! Going to give you guys another try because we just like you!!!
Delicious food, service was excellent, and the vibe was fun. We will definitely be back!
Third time here this month, great addition to downtown
Our 1st time there and we were very pleased. My entree Seafood Arabianta was excellent. My wife ordered Veal Saltimbocca and was disappointed that they ran out of veal so she had to find another item on the menu which was chicken Marsala . She was please in the end and we will go back.
Overall nice restaurant with a good menu and staff was excellent.
The drinks were original and very good, the salad was also very good. Our meals were quite large and we took home leftovers because it was that good. Service was timely and very friendly and helpful. Will return for another fine meal.
The food was excellent but the noise level was high. Overall very good experience.
Great food and atmosphere !
Excellent food, large portions, and great service!
Amazing atmosphere. Eclectic and beautiful interior design. Sat at high top table which was comfortable. Wide variety of menu choices at reasonable prices. Yummy Limoncello martini. Meal was complete with a complimentary shot... choice of Limoncello or Sambuca. This is a neighborhood gem.
Well done interior, friendly, warm, efficient service, good food, interesting beverages. Enjoyed our 2nd visit as much as the first.
We love this place. The service is terrific - they really try to get to know you. The food is great and the portions are substantial - we always have leftovers. We brought friends recently and they loved it, too.
Hello Meredith! Thank you for your valued patronage and for your amazing feedback! We're thrilled you enjoyed your Grano experience! Hope to serve you again soon!
Mother’s Day was wonderful thanks to the team at Grano!!
We went for mother's day lunch and it was great. We all had enough leftovers for a second delicious meal. The service was excellent and friendly.
We had the best experience here!! The ambience is so fun, full bar, great drinks, food was delicious, and the service was excellent. Loved the whipped ricotta appetizer, burrata appetizer, and short rib lasagna. The whole staff made it such a fun night for our group - sending over firework candles and shots for our table! Truly made for such a memorable night. Would definitely go back!
Mia was an excellent server! Management came by to see how we were doing and bar manager was awesome! Excellent food and desserts. Great value. And the entire restaurant is beautiful. Just what Scotch Plains needs!
Hello Linda! We're thrilled you enjoyed your Grano experience! Hope to serve you again soon!
Amazing! Great service and food was incredible.
We had a great dinner here. So happy with this addition to our town. The Chicken Milanese is the best I’ve ever had. And the rice balls were yummy!
We can't wait to return! Our dinner was perfect from start to finish. Our server Mia was outstanding, cocktails and quality of food were fantastic. The restaurant is very inviting from a design perspective. Comfortable chairs, subdued lighting and background music played at the right volume. Just needs a better draft beer selection. Shout out to John, the manager too. Checked on guests periodically and pleasant to chat with.
Hello Susan! Thank you for your valued patronage and for taking the time to share your experience! We're thrilled you enjoyed your Grano experience! We'll be sure to share the amazing review with John and Mia! Thank you again and hope to serve you again soon!
Can not wait to go back! Everything was excellent
Hello Kim! We're thrilled you enjoyed your Grano experience! See you again soon!
This place is legit. Great addition to the neighborhood.
We stopped at Grano after wedding dress shopping. The atmosphere is a fabulous mixture of old world elegance and modern finishes. The minute we walked in the door we were impressed by the warm and inviting ambiance. The menu has a surprising mixture of offerings from salads to porterhouse to pizza. The bar has extensive choices and our cocktails were excellent. Service, ambiance and quality set this place above others with the added advantage of parking in the back. What a great addition to the neighborhood!!!
We LOVE this place! Everything is wonderful - from the decor to the staff, service and FOOD it is a bit to be missed location!!
Place is so small and u feel like u are sitting and dining with strangers. Too smalll. Will do order out in future
The restaurant is beautiful now! It was renovated from the previous restaurant and is now City chic. The menu is diversified. We had veal chop Parmesan and snapper piccata. Both were excellent! Our waitress, Mia, was so delightful. Great experience.
We've been here a total of two times, so far, and both times in the same week, it's that good. The service is seamless, the food delicious, and the ambience is nice (we bet the ambience will only get better once they're allowed to have the stools back at the bar). We've had the fish special, pizza, dessert, salads - we're trying it all. We're going again. We're aiming to become regulars so we'll be able to score a table once everyone else finds out about this place.
