...the restaurant is at its peak, combining country charms with city style...And you can be sure that everyone, either dining at a table or playing on stage, is hitting high notes"-Peter M. Gianotti, Newsday. In his August 9th review of the newly renovated Grasso's, Celebrating 25 years in Cold Spring Harbor, Gail Grasso (Owner) and Tony Canales (Exec. Chef/Partner) gear up to give you yet another year of phenomenal food, jazz and just an overall feeling of “WOW”. Grasso’s, now more than ever, has that real Hip Manhattan feel you don't find on Long Island. A neighborhood gathering place where you almost always stand the chance of running into someone you know. When you dine at Grasso’s you truly feel as though you've walked into Gail’s home. It’s been called the “Cheers” of Cold Spring Harbor. It's Where Great Food and Great Music Live!

Food was fantastic. I had the striped bass special and my date had the branzino. Both were outstanding. Noise level during the performance made it difficult to communicate though. Everything else was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We always enjoy dining at Grasso’s especially on Sundays when we can bring our wine for a low corkage fee. The food is very good. However, the bread is not as good anymore. They use small dinner rolls instead of good Italian bread. That was a disappointment. Also, they have cut back on their appetizer choices.

Food was excellent. Everything was delicious. Wait staff were great. Managers Front of house are awful. Our party of 4 was seated at a table for 2 while we watched them seat a party of 2 at a table for 4. They were completely clueless. That said we moved to an outside table , had another drink and enjoyed the amazing food!!

I took my husband to Grasso’s for his birthday. Everything we ordered- spring salad, truffle fries, pasta bolognese and swordfish was delicious. The cocktails and service was also good. There was a wonderful jazz singer performing named Mala Waldron which made the whole experience even better. We’ll definitely be back!

We have been eating Grasso's delicious food during this pandemic using their take out option. Wednesday was our first return to their indoor dining and it was outstanding !
We enjoyed our delicious dinner with live music. Thank you Grasso's ! We will be back.

Never been to Grassos so we thought we would give them a try for restaurant week! It was very spacious and had a live pianist. The food was very good and my drink was very strong! We were a party of two so they sat us in the middle of the restaurant. That was the only downfall. But overall, it was a great experience and will return but request a table on the side and NOT in the middle of the restaurant!

We were 2 couples 3 of which had been to Grasso's before however this was my first time. All 3 said that Grasso's never disappoints and they were right. Two of us had the Branzino (absolutely light and delicious), one had the Duck and one had the Veal Marsala. There was nothing left on our plates. I mentioned we were celebrating a birthday (when I made the reservation) and desert came out with a beautiful candle while Safrah Levitan played (piano) and sang Happy Birthday! Altogether a very special evening!

Food was great! Ambiance was warm and jazzy. Live music was sensational. Staff seemed a tad overwhelmed that night and the wine list was limited with significant up charge. Would certainly go back again.

Grasso's is one of the few places you can go to enjoy both wonderful food and live music. I came for the jazz duo that was playing, I had seen them both before, playing together and with other jazz artists in various NYC jazz clubs. We came at 6:30 and we were able to stay and listen to the music until after 10:00 PM.
Since a lot of the NYC jazz clubs are still closed, I hope they have more real jazz here rather than the lounge singers that have been more prevalent lately! When they do, I will be here.

The last time we were here, the atmosphere was more dinner club. This time it was more like neighborhood has been. Gone are the white table cloths. The bartender was wearing a polar vest over a casual shirt. The hostess was in a denim top. The pumped in music included Neil Young The Needle and Damage Done. - Not the Jazz club advertised, thought the prices were definitely upscale. 18 dollars for an appetizer. The service wasn't great. My husband asked for a Jack and coke with very little ice. It was all ice and we sent it back. We ordered. I asked for us to share the empanadas, then the salad, which was just for my husband, then our entrees. The empanadas and the salad came our together and was brought by a different server. They took the salad back. The server tried to use two utensils to re plate the empanadas onto two plates, but ended up turning my empanada upside down and leaving it that way. Not a big deal, but if you aren't adept at this type of service, don't do it. The empanadas were very good- the crust was excellent. The Caesar salad was very good, however, the parm crisp seemed a few days old and was inedible. My cioppino was okay, as was my husband's wagu burger. We didn't order dessert. The last time we were in, they had table-side bananas foster - which we love and looked forward to, and that was not offered when we asked our server what was for dessert, so we decided to skip it. As we paid the check, the table next to us had bananas foster made for them. Finally, when I made the reservation on Open Table, it asked if it was a special occasion. It was. It was our wedding anniversary. No one mentioned it. Definitely not worth coming back.
