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 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!!

Service is usually excellent, but it was so unusually busy on this Sunday evening and the familiar wait staff was not in evidence, that the service just wasn't up to the usual level.

The live jazz is a special treat in this overall enjoyable restaurant. Our only issue is that there is one table in an awkward spot in the music dining room and we were seated at it. Servers kept bunking into our chairs because the table’s position made for a tight squeeze.

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.
