My second time. The first time my veal chop was a ball of fat. The waiter told me that no one is happy with it. This time was a completely different experience. Our waiter Elliot was excellent. When were seated we asked for a small booth. The hostess told us that they were reserved instead we had to settle for a table where everyone walking by made contact with you. After 90 minutes with no one seating there my wife asked for the General Manager. He came, said it wasn't true, hung at our table way too long, told us he was going to check out why and never came back. The food was very good this time. There are several good restaurants in the area, I would check them out first.

A Midland gem. Definitely order the table side Alfredo! Very knowledgeable staff and take the time to explain the different dish options.

Very nice restaurant that definitely caters to the wine crowd, which we are not a part of. Wife and I both had steaks, which were prepared excellently, as was the entire meal. Our server, Jeff, was most accommodating.

Menu is delivered on personal Ipads, which is novel. Food was really good--whole party raved about it. Mixed drinks were very good, waitstaff attentive but not intrusive. I look forward to going there again soon.

Been to Midland Gratzi several times and it is a nice addition to downtown Midland. The food is usually good and the service is excellent. I am not a big fan of the electronic menu, although I recognize it has advantages. I find it rather difficult to find what I want and then remember it when placing the order. Happy Hour is only served in the bar area, which is deceiving on the tabular menu. Bread is good, but definitely needs oil, which can be had by asking. Eggplant parm (which is what our vegetarians have to get) has been very very inconsistent upon 6-8 orders over the past 6 months. Sometimes it’s is exceptionally good and othertimes(like last Friday night), it was dry and leathery. Overall, I find Gratzi good place to eat and hope it makes a success of it.

We were seated promptly. Our host was gracious and courteous. Our server Jeff was very good, very attentive and cleared empty dishes quickly. My wife’s dish Alfredo with shrimp was so so. The cheese block was frozen causing her dish to be lukewarm, not hot. The shrimp were over seared and there was not enough sauce on her dish. We also were visited many times by drain flies. You would think a restaurant of this magnitude would not have a pest issue. Get a good pest control company to resolve this problem.

We have eaten here several times and to tell you the truth, we were a bit disappointed on this last visit. Our waitress had to be helped by other staff who took our drink order and then came back for our appetizer orders. We had to ask for ice and water, and when we asked for some more bread to finish our asiago appetizer, she waited so long that my husband just ate the remaining cheese. She was not busy as I could not see where she was most of the time. It was a very unusual experience for us, as we love to visit Gratzi. But it was quite embarrassing as we had a visiting guest from out of town. We had also ordered the pizza which we usually totally love, but this one was overdone and cold. As I said, I am not one to complain as we had a guest with us, and I don't like to ever look like I am not having fun when entertaining. We will be back, as we like this eating spot, but this time was a "no."

We went to Gratzi for our 1 year anniversary. We asked for outdoor seating when we got there. Very beautiful restaurant. We had a great server, and he was helpful with suggestions. We had 2 pizzas and they were delicious. The cocktails are a little pricey, but we were expecting that. Food prices are reasonable. We will definitely go back.

Eduardo was excellent as usual!
Food was delicious too!
Noticed a change in the sea bass dish, the risotto-not as tangy as it used to be. Maybe a different cheese. Still good though

We booked this for my Birthday as first time diners. First off the ambiance was quiet and decorations were modern. So it had the look of an expensive restaurant. The menu was electronic so it took more time to look at each menu item to understand what it was but it did a good job of explaining it with pictures. We ordered the Asiago cheese and bread entree. It was OK as the cheese was not very soft and required cutting with a knife or spoon to put it on the bread. My wife ordered Filet Mignon and I had the veal scallopini. The Filet was cooked medium as requested but it had a very salty seared surface, almost tasted like W sauce flavor to it, so she had to trim it off. Scallopini as very good and mixed veggies were cooked to perfection. The wine list is extensive and of good quality and fair price. We finished with desert of Tahitian Vanilla ice cream which was great and Cream Brulee which was just ok. It was served cold and not recently caramelized. They put frozen fruit garnish on it which detracted from the presentation. It is the middle of the summer, expected fresh fruit or just put nothing on it.
Since it was my birthday we did get half off the meal. But we did not plan this visit with that in mind. Would definitely go back and try the pizza or other menu items in the future.

Visited Gratzi for my birthday, and had multiple issues with our order. My fiancé received the wrong order twice, we received the wrong bottle of wine, and initially my salad was not brought out with my meal. The management tried to resolve these issues by providing a complimentary appetizer and dessert, but the issues were consistent throughout the meal. Overall, I would go again but hope to have a better experience next time.

Dining experience was a little marred by having to use the bar area for quiet due to a wedding party at the back. overall food was good with some "misses" - string beans had not had the string removed or sharp ends.

Dined here for birthday celebration and the restaurant offers discounts if you done ON your birthday. ID required. Alexandra was our server and she was awesome! Gave us great recommendations based on our likes and dislikes. Calamari and the Brussels sprout appetizer was very good and we enjoyed the salmon and chicken with fig sauce. Both entrees served with cauliflower that was delicious! We dined on patio. Inside atmosphere nice too. The perfecto cocktail was refreshing without being sweet. Alexandra was helpful with cocktail choices. If you like Alfredo sauce they will make it table side which we watched at the next table. We recommend this restaurant!

We ate here for an Anniversary celebration with friends. The menu was very limited, limited choices for Entrees, Appetizers, etc.. The experience of having the Carbonara made at the table was interesting. We probably won't return. The food was rather flavorless.
