We had a 7:30 reservation and unfortunately the table ahead of us was in no hurry to leave. The restaurant went above and beyond to offer us drinks (on them) while we waited. Great customer service! The food, service and ambience were all great!

We live on Queen Anne Hill and have dined at every restaurant on top of the hill over the years. In the early years here for Grappa the food was inconsistent and fair to good at best. However, our last meal there a couple of years ago was so poor we decided not to return. Until Nov. 2021 that is. When we went back then, after a 2-year absence, we had a whole different dining experience, and it was exponentially better! The place was full and lively, the service was good, and the food was outstanding! We've been back several times in the last 2 months and each time whatever we order was not only good, it was terrific. It became clear quickly that others agreed with us because it has become challenging to get reservations at times and almost impossible at the last minute. In short, Grappa has transformed from an OK restaurant, to a really good one! We haven't had even one thing on the menu that wasn't really delicious!

Service and food was perfection. The Lamb Ravi Pappardelle was the best I’ve ever had. Fun cocktails selection. Music level was a bit loud at one point but tapered off.

BEST RESTAURANT IN SEATTLE!! The hostess Julia was so so kind, she was able to answer all our questions about the menu& recommend my new favorite drink! Love the atmosphere here and will definitely be coming back!! The staff here give the best service and truly work as a whole team. It’s nice to see that for a change!

I had dined at Grappa twice before and had wonderful experiences. This time didn't work out as well.

The ambiance, the service, the vibe - all good. Where the evening was disappointing was the food. I had the mushroom and sausage risotto it lacked the lovely creaminess you expect from a risotto. Instead it was on the dry side and under seasoned. There were slices of sausage in it and I think chunks of caramelized Italian sausage would be better. My friends each had the lamb ragu with pasta and they commented on the minuscule amount of lamb and were disappointed. The quality of the food did not match the price point.

Based on my past two experiences, I would have whole heartedly recommended Grappa. Based on this recent experience, I'll think twice about going back.

Food and service were excellent. Our table was ready when we arrived for our reservation. Our only complaint was the noise level. PLEASE turn down the volume on the music. Even at a small table, the four of us had a very hard time even carrying on a conversation.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and vibe. The food, for what it is, is overpriced for the portion and what is 'in' the portion. We started with the Shrimp El Diablo. Very tasty, but 6 med. sized shrimp for $22?! We also shared the Humous/Grilled Pita side. Again, very tasty. Not enough pita, but waitperson asked if we wanted more. We were not told it was an additional $2.00 for another pita.
I had the Chicken Marsala which was very tasty, but the chicken was skimpy and overcooked. Another member of the family had the Lamb Ragu Ragu Pappardelle. All very well prepared, but you would be hard pressed to find the lamb amongst the sauce and pappardelle. $24 for pasta and creamed sauce is a little steep despite the rising food costs.
Last, but not least, be prepared for the 3% Service Fee added to the bill. Upon inquiry I was told this was to offset the outdoor seating accommodation cost...we were sitting indoors!! I was never made aware this was a 'standard practice' since I had not encountered that in any other restaurant in the area.

Paella was overcooked and the lasagna seemed like it was kept under a heat lamp for a long while before brought to the table. It took a very long time to receive the food even though it was not a particularly busy Wednesday evening. Wait staff behind the bar were easily heard talking about other people in a negative tone. An overall underwhelming experience.

My guest ordered a vegetarian dish and it was served with meat. My usual paella dish is a favorite but the portion size has decreased. There was not enough rice.
