Celebrating her 21th year in Cold Spring Harbor, Gail Grasso and Exec. Chef Tony Canales will lead you in to yet another year of phenomenal food, jazz and just an overall feeling of “WOW”. Deemed “restless” in the past by Newsday, Gail has once again ventured into changing the décor of the restaurant. The addition of a dance floor in the jazz room gives Grasso’s, now more than ever, that real Manhattan feel. The food and service is incredible and if you’ve never been there before you will leave feeling as though you’ve been coming here forever. 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. Grasso’s also offers a bar menu Sun-Fri evenings and an Al la Carte Sunday Jazz Brunch. Menus, Event and Music schedules are available on the website.

The food was delicious! Our waiter was so nice. However, we waited 45 minutes to be seated and the bar area is very tight! I think they overbooked or took walk ins on a Saturday night? I’d definitely go back but not with a 7:45pm reservation!!

My friends and I had a wonderful evening. Alexis Cole and her trio, who were performing that night, were fabulous. The food was outstanding as was the service.

I hope that Alexis will come back to perform again soon!

Good food at slightly escalated prices. Went for Easter brunch and no special Easter choices were offered.
Portion of huge roll, small crab cake. Don't let an oversized slider get lost in a huge bun. And ice cream dessert is NOT fairly priced at $10
Not our first time here and it continues to meet expectations. Music should be quieter allowing families to talk among themselves during a holiday observance.

one of a few places on Long Island still offering life Jazz. Unfortunately, we were seated 45 minutes after our scheduled reservation. While the food was very good, waiters and waitresses were accommodating and friendly, busboy staff seemed a little condescending at times. Otherwise, a good location and a charming little town. Expect the pain New York City prices for this Long Island restaurant

The food was delicious. We all had specials that were amazing. The service was great and 2 of us had branzino that was deboned tableside. Not a bone in it.
My only complaint at this restaurant is that we go quite frequently and there is no recognition of that fact. Even a hello, how have you been would be nice.

First time for me. Got there 30 minutes prior to reservation. Had a drink at the bar. Sean [ the bar keep] was super friendly. Made decision to have dinner at bar. Was the right decision. Sean made wine recommendations and could not have been more attentive. Had some appetizers and ordered from bar menu. Smaller portions than regular menu. music started around 7. Not over powering - and really good. A return to Grasso's is already being planned .

It was slow Sunday night but the live music was very good, the bartender was alive and part of the conversation. The food was good not great but we did not order anything extraordinary either. Bar pie, salad, and a quesadilla with a few drinks. Thought the tab was reasonable or maybe a touch pricey. Music fee? :)

Brunch was a great deal, the entrees came with a complimentary champagne beverage and were very reasonably priced. The food was tasty I had the Spanish omelette. Ambience was nice they had 2 jazz musicians playing throughout brunch.

Grasso’s is consistently exceptional when it comes to fresh fish, delicious meat dishes and pasta. Very pretty with a friendly vibe and great service. The Jazz is an extra bonus. I had a birthday party here that could not have been better and have been a fan ever since. A resident of CSH and frequent diner Grasso’s is a local favorite!

I took my wife to Grasso's last Friday night to celebrate her birthday, and we had a wonderful evening. The food was fantastic (she had chicken, I had the Fusilli with bolognese), the service wonderful, and they gave her a "firecracker" to celebrate her birthday.

One funny part of the evening: I stopped my waiter as I was on my way to the men's room. He asked me:
"Birthday or anniversary?"
I said..."Birthday".
"What's her name?"
"Anne-Marie"
"OK - we got it!"

And sure enough they did. We've been to Grasso's several times and never been disappointed....we'll be back!

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Grasso's. We went during LI Restaurant Week and the menu choice was superb. We haven't been there in some time although I'm not quite sure why since it's one of our favorite stops. Our server, Jen was simply the best and helped add to an already enjoyable experience. The bar staff was very knowledgeable. I ordered a Chocolate Martini and more times than not I do not get what remotely looks like a Chocolate Martini. The young lady who made the drink should be commended. The drink was amazing & I may go back there more often for that alone. Thank you!!

Super nice evening. Because it was restaurant week it appeared to be a bit understaffed and food was not served as hot as it should be. An overall good dining experience.
