My girlfriend and I had a great date there. The Frida Kahlo drink was amazing as was the monk fish special.
wonderful red sauce Italian. very enjoyable. Good food, wait staff took care of us - without hovering. was not noisy so we could talk. the server had suggestions and descriptions of all the food. They were very covid conscious. It was expensive, but, could have been made cheaper for our group of 4 if we ordered less and shared more. It was just so good that we kept ordering. But we left stuffed! A great place to have gone for mother's day.
It was average. Nothing great, but nothing bad.
$3 mimosas, lovely food, great portions, fantastic prices. Really a great value and wonderful experience.
Awesome atmosphere and food was 👏 amazing. I will definitely put this restaurant on my dining list of great places to go.
Our experience was fantastic! We enjoyed the food thoroughly and had great service as well. It is the perfect date night spot.
Very friendly staff judt an overall good vibe.
We sat outside on the patio. The wait staff was very friendly and it was a good experience. It took a little while longer than expected to get our food after ordering, but the food was very good.
food was good but not outstanding. the resoto was underdone. more choices would be good.
The strawberry tiramisu was awesome. Always get the risotto balls, always good.
Awesome pasta. Great gravy, Scallops outstanding.
Very good wine list. Desserts very tasty.
Will be back
Food is solid Italian food - no frills. Service was a little slow.
Everything was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the fried risotto balls!
This was a disappointing birthday dinner. The appetizer we ordered was a bit weird, sundried tomoatoes, mushroom and spicy peppers. It was served blistering hot but since it was dry it wasn't bubbling. It was too spicy. It was served with crackers which was very weird. It should've been served with crispy bread rounds. Next up was a salad which was tossed, which I like, with the tiniest piece of caramelized brie. It had pistachios and they should've been carmelized, too. Green Godess dressing is an odd choice. Then the entrees, I had scallops over risotto and my spouse, the rib eye steak. The rib eye was cut far too thin maybe 1/2". I think he liked the demi glaze. The potatoes were way overdone and looked like they were cooked in a fryer instead of roasted in the oven and he didn't touch them. The brocolini was way over done and wilted. None of it was served hot. My risotto was very dry and honestly semed as if it were not cooked using a broth but rather with water. It was flavorless and lacked salt for sure. I've made risotto for many decades so it was a 100% fail. There was a weird giant scoop of herbs (about 2T), far larger than required of whatever it was made with, it said mint (which I couldn't taste) and maybe parsley, but it was dry and didn't seem to actually be a pesto though called that. There was no olive oil in its preparation. Both entrees were cold, plates were cold. Even the scallops which were cooked to order were barely room temperature. It was all disappointing.
Everything was very good. The kids meals are well priced and had plenty of food. The shrimp fra diavlo was very tasty and offered a good number of shrimp. The Bolognese was also well liked. The courtyard area was very nice and tables were spaced out very nicely to provide ample room.
Apparently my reservation for outside dining was only a recommendation as I didn't choose the proper table??? I have never heard that before, but they were accommodating and find a table outside.
Food used to be good. The eggplant pie was amazing in the past but such a disappointment now. Food quality is inconsistent.
We LOVE gravy! Food is always delicious, service was quick, friendly, and helpful, and the courtyard was a great place to sit!
Food was amazing! Atmosphere was wonderful. I can’t wait to go back.
Great food & service!
As always our meal was excellent. My only complaint...I asked my server twice for a drink that she recommended and never got it. We will be back as it is our favorite Italian spot.
We had reservations for my sons 11th birthday. This is his favorite place to eat in Raleigh. The food is always fantastic and service is usually perfection. Tonight was a different story. We had to wait over 10 min for anyone to come greet us at our table, drinks took forever and the server was not Attentive at all. We put in a order Togo and sat at our table for over 15 min before we had to get up to remind him...and low and behold it’s sitting in the window ready. He was too busy chatting it up with the bartender to even notice. Hope the next time we return is better.
I got the gnocchi and it was to die for! Girlfriend loved the ambiance so will definitely be coming back.
Girl’s night/birthday celebration. Missy was attentive, knowledgeable, and upbeat. We had a great night with amazing food and delightful wine. We will most certainly be back and request Missy every time!
Friends were in from out of town
First time to visit Raleigh, and reviews lead us to Gravy. Amazing food that was so darn sinfully good! Had the Gnocchi with shrimp and my daughter had the bolognese both which were outstanding! (Huge portions- we should have split one) Jessie was a lovely server, and the outdoor courtyard was charming. A must in Raleigh dining. A+++
I visited Gravy this past weekend with my wife for date night and we had an amazing experience. The food was fresh and delicious, probably the best I've had locally. Our server Missie was the highlight of the evening. She was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Everything that she suggested was delicious and my wife and I had just an overall welcome feeling from Missie. She made sure that we had everything we needed but wasn't hovering over the table hoping for a tip. I know great service when I see it, having been in customer service for 15 years and I have to say that she provided the best experience that my wife and I have had. We will definitely be coming back to Gravy for the amazing food and specifically to sit with Missie!
This restaurant was AMAZING. We were celebrating my boyfriends promotion and had a larger party than allowed with covid restrictions. The manager was able to seat us at two separate tables but in the same room, which was very nice. The manager and waitresses were very kind and the food/cocktails was delicious.
From our appetizer thru drinks, entrees and dessert, our meal was fabulous! Everything waa delicious and we'll definitely be back.
Really our first sit down/inside date night in like forever. Honored our reservation immediately, and tables were spaced safely for social dist (we felt very safe throughout the night). Food is the shining star here and both my wife and I raved about our choices. Drinks and Wine selection is plentiful and reasonably priced. Service was great and attentive. Ambience is bright and rooms were moderately loud. Very enjoyable evening.
Food was great especially the gnocchi, portions were perfect . The waitress was very helpful and accommodating Made reservations for outdoor dining and was told there was not any available seating for outdoors. Will still frequent this restaurant.
The food was amazing and the waiter so nice and patient. We have twin toddlers and our food was fast and delicious. Perfect!
I would have liked the music to be a bit quieter, but we were outside, so I understand why they had it up.
Heard of this place. While visiting, I had to go. The food is delicious and perfect and wine list excellent. Get the risotto balls. Our waitress, Missy, was excellent and knowledgeable of the menu and very tentative. The extra help, we did not get his name but he has a black Jeep, was also great and helpful. I will go back to Raleigh just for this restaurant.
The food was delicious. The risotto balls were perfect. Great drinks and ambiance.
A very unusual Shrimp Fradiavolo - full of root vegetables. It didn’t really work- almost like they needed to empty the larder.
Missie was a great sever knowing the menu well & not rushing us. We would definitely visit again.
Awesome hand made pasta , great service , nice little spot for a good Italian dinner
We use to go about every other week but the last two times (with all the new Covid protocol) have been extremely average.
We were impressed with Gravy. Visited for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We were promptly seated at a table in a beautiful private courtyard. The wait staff quickly approached us and were very attentive. The fresh homemade pasta dishes we had were excellent. Overall a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend.
