The fried chicken and mashed potatoes were yummy! The banana bread pudding was a wonderful dessert.

It was okay. Our waitress was great but the food was not worth the price. There was moldy raspberries on my dessert.

I was visiting from out of town and I found this gem of a restaurant. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed. I have already recommended it to several people and will definitely come again.

Our first time here. Sadly not the best. The decor is inviting and sophisticated and our server was excellent. She recommended a wine selection that was perfect. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I was set for a great evening, then the shrimp cocktail appetizer was served on a plate with multiple chips on it and the cocktail sauce in a plastic cup. Also charged $18 for it even though it was $15 on the menu. The main course was adequate but not great. Again served in chipped bowls, the type of bowls that the salad was served in. I actually thought they gave me another salad. Please toss the broken dish ware and plate the entre.

First time patron. The ambiance was really nice, classy but relaxed and comfortable. The server was prompt and pleasant.

We ordered drinks, appetizers, salads, and an entree. The appetizers were really good and set an expectation. The salads were good but very small portions. The entrees were very lack luster and warm at best when served. The four of us had three different entrees, none of them were impressive. The fish was almost unbearably salty and questionable as to the advertised species. The pasta and chicken not quite as offensive but definitely nothing to specifically return for.

We stayed for quite a while as we were enjoying the company. We were never approached about our satisfaction and we did not complain.

The menu wasn't necessarily the greatest and the food was warm, not hot and just average. I would go back for the ambiance, but the food is a one and done.

Loved the vibe. Service was SUPER slow and inattentive. Took 45 min of sitting down to even get our order placed. Asked for hot sauce 3x and never got it. Food was good but came out cold and/or room temperature. Expected more from this place given the other recommendations.

Our food was outstanding; I had a filet and my partner had a burger. Our server (Kelly) was delightful. She handled both our table and the bar with efficiency. I suspect she was serving others as well. The hostesses took special care to seat us in our desired area, as we were concerned about having the least noise in order to talk. We will definitely return in the near future.

My $45 filet was served on a chipped plate. A CHIPPED plate. The server was friendly but extremely unprofessional. The bottle of wine we ordered was opened prior to arriving at our table and we weren't given the option to taste it before pouring full glasses. Our server was in a hurry for us to leave and even suggested bringing the check while we were still eating our entrees and had only finished half of our bottle of wine. The food tasted good but wasn't anything special. I would not go back for a special occasion and I will not be recommending it to others.

Our waiter was slow and not very knowledgeable about the menu. He did not tell us about the specials. We over heard them at another table after we had placed our order. My husband asked about the curry, listed as one of the specialties of the restaurant and our waiter did not have much to say. Again we overheard another waitress describing the type of curry in detail to other tables. At our waiters suggestion we ordered the loaded fries for appetizer. They were disappointing, so loaded with melted cheese the fries were very soggy. I ordered the grouper and was very disappointed. It was dry and flavorless, served with asparagus over top of some type of cheese sauce. My husband had the shrimp and grits which overall he enjoyed. Our waiter never checked back after we got our food and we had to flag home down to get the check. The restaurant was not busy. We were very disappointed and will not go again

It’s a pleasant place, but our service was poor to fair. They were out of LaCrema Chardonnay ($12), so I substituted Rombauer ($16) with no offer of making it $12 for the substitute. The fried calamari was so tough, it was hard to chew. A complaint was made, but no apologies. Three of us had shrimp and grits which were very very spicey, and not at all like the dish you used to have. The grits were not smooth and rather hard and, at best, lukewarm. We were having a birthday dinner for one of our friends, and when asked about dessert, she said she would have coconut pie. The server brought banana cheesecake, for which we were charged $8.00. No complimentary birthday dessert. REALLY? Another vegetarian friend ordered grits with green beans and Brussels sprouts and she got grits and asparagus. We enjoyed the ambiance, but the food was mediocre, at best. Would not recommend.

I would have been able to give a 5 in most categories if this business was fully staffed. I realize it is probably not the restaurant owner/management fault as this is a city wide problem. This was my first visit and I will go back even if the staff situation is slow to change. Kitchen and wait staff did a great job under the circumstances! Loved our brunch!

This is one of my favorite spots for some intangible reason. Some quality of the residential type porch draws me in. The last few times we’ve had tough service, not that the individual servers were a problem, just an overall staffing issue, so ticket times in the kitchen were insane. I tend to think it’s worth the wait when I’m on the porch. I always order “brunchy and fresh” and I’ll always come back.

Wonderful atmosphere, amazing food selection. However when they are short staffed they did not communicate that until 2 hours later and we waited 1.5 hrs for our food with no bread or appetizers.

Food and service excellent. 4 stars due to an extremely rude obnoxious guy who screamed at the top of his lungs. The staff ignored it and did not address the issue. Everyone on the patio was upset. We left without dessert

Took my family of four (which includes two younger children) for brunch on Sunday. Food and service was excellent. The kids enjoyed their Belgian waffle, eggs and bacon. It’s so nice to find a place my husband and I can have a nicer meal and the kids enjoy it too. Will be back!

We enjoyed our meal at Graze but it took over 30 minutes for our appetizer to arrive. Since we had a definite time we needed to leave we were a little stressed by this. Our entree -a second appetizer- came quickly so we were fine in the end.
