Grasso’s restaurant is a neighborhood gathering place where you almost always stand the chance of running into someone you know. Whether you’re a local or not, when you dine at Grasso’s you truly feel as though you have walked into Gail’s home. It’s been called the “Cheers” of Cold Spring Harbor.

I hadn't been to Grasso's in a long time, and it didn't disappoint. I had the leek and potato soup for the first course and it was amazing. For the entrée I was served the Tuna steak, well, I thought I was in heaven, it was so delicious and the bread pudding for dessert completed my fabulous dinner. We were seated promptly, the service was impeccable and the music just right. All in all, it was the perfect evening.

Enjoyed the Steak and eggs and my wife enjoyed her salad. The steak and eggs were pricey.
What was annoying was that we ordered ice teas and they came with very little tea and full of ice. That would have been okay if they didn't charge us for every refill. It took two refills to get 6 sips because-
Two sips and the glass was empty.
VERY PETTY

Had an awful experience this past Saturday for my husbands birthday. Our waitress couldn't have been more rude. Both drinks we ordered were made incorrectly (dirty martinis - not dirty) and when we asked for them to be fixed, they weren't even remade - they just threw the olive juice into the last drink. The next drink we ordered with our dinner (vodka soda with cranberry) had no cranberry. When asked for them to be remade - we got an attitude from our waitress "What would you like me to do with them?". Again, they just threw cranberry in the drink instead of remaking them. Unbelievable. Food was not made to order (asked for my filet medium and it was rare as could be).

For a $250 meal - you should get much better than this!

Will not ever go here again! The one positive is that the music was good.

It was my fiftieth birthday and I requested a special table when I made my reservation. My request was granted and had the best table near the music. All staff was attentive to our table and the food was outstanding and full of flavor. I will definitively be going back real soon and it might be another regular dining experience for us.

I wish I could say that the food was amazing, but it wasn't. Everything else was wonderful; our server Tim was fantastic, the atmosphere is comfortable, etc. The food was just ok, and it was way overpriced. We may go back to try the Sunday brunch, simply because Tim is so incredible.

The Sunday evening throw back menu is well priced. Love that we can bring our own bottle of wine on Sunday evenings. Food is delicious and nicely presented. We enjoyed the jazzy, bluesy music of Gale Storm.

I notified in advance this was our Anniversary dinner. No special or reserved table was set aside.
I am allergic to MSG and was up all night after my veal meal with a racing heart and sweating. I had ordered the special hoping it would be fresh. Food was not good and pasta was overcooked with large clumps of garlic floating in oil.
My husband's pork chops were inedible. Worst meal he had ever had he told me.
We went to Grasso's instead of Prime hoping that at a smaller restaurant we would have an intimate and memorable dining experience - this was memorable for all the wrong reasons! Doubtful we would go back to spend over $200 for such an experience.

This is our favorite north shore restaurant. We have many choices but between Great Neck and Huntington but nothing beats the selection, quality and diversity of the menu and food at Grasso. Our server was well informed and very helpful. Everything came out correctly prepared and was delicious. Gluten free options were numerous and delicious as well. The berry Napoleon for dessert was excellent and worth the calories. Even the live jazz was a wonderful added touch and was not too loud.

Grasso's is a favorite spot of ours both for dinner and Sunday brunch. Brunch is especially nice with live jazz but there is live music most days of the week. Food is excellent, there is a good choice of menu items and service is cordial and efficient. Just be sure to make a reservation. Both indoor and out door seating is available.
