Great food & service! Super noisy though, acoustics could be improved. Restaurant felt really warm all night, I guess each time the front door would open a major heat wave would engulf the whole place even on the back of restaurant. Bathroom was nice and cold though. Could use some late afternoon blinds to help reduce heat from windows and sun.

Decided to try a new place and had read some good feedback on Grato, so we gave it a whirl. It did not disappoint! The food was delicious with good variety as well as nice specials to choose from, the service by Sydney was outstanding, and Joe the owner stopped by to chat a couple of times and to make sure everything was to our liking. Perfect evening for a casual date night.

We had an excellent experience at Grato! Service was excellent and the food was outstanding (not to mention large portion sizes). For Winter Park, this restaurant provides affordable dining without sacrificing the quality. Highly recommend.

Service was great - employees were very attentive. The food was very good for the price point (extremely reasonable!) Their mixed drinks were very good too. We didn't even know Grato had opened on Park Ave but we would definitely go back again.

Required dress code of business casual is totally misleading. No one followed it, particularly the young man who was slumped at the bar with the underwear exposed.
Food was very good, service was good but that is where it ended.

A lot of noise from the next-door restaurant. Pizza was missing tomatoes and they used regular cheese instead of fresh mozarella cheese. Glasses not as clean as you expect for an expensive restaurant. Poor service. The waiter didn't even know what should be on the pizza we ordered.

What a lovely Mother's Day brunch we had ... food was delicious, our server was excellent (Sydney), owner made his rounds to make sure everyone was enjoying their meal and even brought out samples of other food that was just as delicious as the main meal. Definitely a do-over!!!

The waiter was very gracious and pleasant. But the food was very dissapointing. I had a pan-seared snapper. I could tell it was previously frozen and not from Florida. I inquired. It turns out they import their snapper from Indonesia.
My sister got a simple spaghetti and meatballs. It was average-tasting; something you could get a a Chinese fast-food joint. Ironically, it also took an hour to get our food, and they weren't busy at all.

Very limited menu. One in our party was gluten free and there really wasn’t much for her.
I had the chicken parm which was to thick and over cooked which made it hard to chew. Fish dinners were tasteless.

We were greeted warmly by the server and quickly shown to our table. Excellent food and attentive service throughout the meal and never felt rushed as we lingered over our deserts. Top notch experience and will be back soon.

The positives- very friendly and welcoming staff

We ordered mussels to start. Flavor was ok but 5 of the 20 hadn’t opened during cooking ( meaning don’t eat -they’re dead) and were served any way. We brought it to the attention of our server who acknowledged that meant they weren’t safe to eat but she didn’t offer to bring us more. Had 2 different salads. Both ok. Ordered pork chop Marsala and creamy snapper for entrees. Took 45 minutes to be served and the dishes were inedible. The fish had to have been microwaved. It was rubbery and had absolutely no flavor save the cream sauce. Same with the pork chop. Dry and rubbery. $150 later (including tip) for really bad food. Won’t be back. Such a shame.

The food was good, the waiter was great, and we liked the entire vibe. I always get nervous when a place has fish printed on the menu, that usually means that the fish is frozen or they would never be confident enough that they would have it each day to print on a menu. They have a couple of snapper dishes on the menu so who knows, maybe it is fresh. We did not order fish, we shared a nice pizza, my wife had linguini and clams which was good. This has a feel of a nice little family Italian place, fair prices...just overall really nice feeling here. I hope they do really well, and I bet they do.

Way too many French fries, enough for 4 people. Pizza much larger than server described, but good. Steak was overcooked, but tasty, needed more fat trimmed before cooking. Tiramisu looks great, but was full of fries.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times. I was happy the first time, but the next visits proved to be disappointing. The service is not very good. The staff is slow, inattentive and uninformed about the menu. I was not impressed by the fact that we had reservations, no one was waiting in line before us, and it took a long time to get a table in a restaurant that was not full. The food was mediocre for the price and the deserts taste like something that was bought in a supermarket instead of cooked on premises. There are much better restaurants in Park Avenue . . . would skip this one. Also, parking is ridiculous.

Appetizers and dinner, including pizza, are great! The Prosciutto pizza with cauliflower crust was awesome. The Picanha steak is really good and the regular pizzas are awesome. Appetizers, bruschetta and cheese triangles are a gotta have for my family.
