Italian
Ask any Italian-American what ‘gravy’ is, and they'll tell you it's the pasta sauce that their mothers and grandmothers cooked fresh every night. At Gravy Restaurant we take the same care, preparing our signature sauce every day using select tomatoes and locally grown herbs. The heart and soul poured into the preparation of traditional Italian-American dishes pairs with inspired modern twists and a focus on seasonal ingredients to define Gravy’s unique approach to this classic cuisine.

After eating here on Sunday, we decided to return for my birthday because it was good food and great precautions were being taken to make guests feel comfortable. Way to go Gravy for providing us with another wonderful experience

Given the nature of COVID-19 and the recent downtown riots, the service and food were both excellent and I will be returning soon.

Even though we experienced a fire drill everyone just picked up and went back to it. It was relaxed and no one panicked or even expressed displeasure. We had a wonderful evening with friends.

The food and service were great—awesome eggplant pie and Nutella creme brûlée. The restaurant took great safety measures to help with social distancing (reduced the number of tables, limited seating at each table, etc.) The tables were pretty far apart.

Good food but we were placed near the back door which was constantly being open and closed. Our entire party felt cold every time a staff member went outside the back door (presumably to smoke).

Met two girlfriends for our monthly dinner outing. I just wasn’t blown away by the meal and red wine that was suggested to me. I’m not sure I will return to this restaurant.

Loved the ambiance and service. Panzanella salad and garlic knots were excellent, and the spaghetti and meatballs were tasty. The osso buco and tagliatelle Bolognese were nicely presented and good, but I've had better.

Food was tasteless and undercooked. Bench seating was broken on both sides of table and we all leaned/slid toward aisle - very uncomfortable. Very very loud - we had to lean in and speak loud across table/booth. Loud bustling cafeteria like ambience. Could have overlooked if food was good but it was simple and flavorless.

Oh, where to begin. The food is luke warm, served on cold plates, for starters; had to have two dishes recooked that were ice cold, yet both were clearly just microwaved and served (ironically) on a new cold plate, and were still cold.
The ‘gravy’ of gravy is very sweet, and tastes like it’s fresh - from a can. But sweetened. Its very sweet. Thankfully, it’s entirely unseasoned and devoid of garlic, herbs or salt (that’s sarcasm).
This is like eating from a cafeteria. Everything is already cooked, and they just reheat it (50/50 of actually being warm for us) and put it on a cold plate. Hundred bucks they have drawers full of pre-cooked pasta that they finish in a starchy, tepid pot of water when someone orders it.
We were offered a bag of dessert to take with us for our troubles, from a manager who wreaked of cigarettes and booze (curly haired blonde woman, didn’t catch her name; for obvious reasons she didn’t offer it.) We declined the bag of dessert, because we’re not homeless and had symphony tickets.
This place is...trash. I knew better, was warned, and went anyway.
Do NOT eat here, I beg of you!

Every time I go to Gravy I keep thinking the food will be better than it is. Our server was great and the drinks were great. No one couldn’t get passed the overcooked, mushy pasta. Every plate had overcooked pasta. Al dente is how pasta in an Italian restaurant should be cooked!

Husband and I went last night for dinner and it was great! Had a reservation and we were sat right away. We unfortunately were sat by the door so it was a bit cold. It was also hard to chat as it was very loud. But the food was amazing, wine was good, and service was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Normally, I enjoy this place. This time, the food was mediocre. I had the duck Rafi it had little taste. Unusual for Gravy.

The food was good. They had an issue with another booking and asked us to move tables mid meal. They asked nicely, moved us quickly, comped us the appetiser and dessert, thanked us and thanked us again with gift cards. Given the situation they handled it very well.

Our food was delicious! The only reason I gave 4 stars was that the poor bartender was serving the whole restaurant! But he has a great attitude and we left him a good tip. They needed more servers...the food was delicious, we all got something different and everyone liked their dish!

My wife and I enjoyed our Valentine’s Day dinner at this perfectly sized establishment. The ambience was casual yet intimate. The service was spectacular, we were waited on kindly and generously. The prices were fair and we really got a bang for our buck! The variety of menu options was perfect. And the food was delicious! will return(:

We went for Valentine’s Day and they were a well oiled machine. The traditional Bolognese sounds basic but you must order! It was hands down some of the best pasta you’ll eat, and I don’t say that lightly. My fiancé couldn’t keep his fork off my plate! So tasty, and all around great experience but to add the cherry on top it’s very well priced!
