We ordered the soup of the day, salmon chowder. We received tomato bisque. Service was slow and it took a long time to get the check.

Our service and experience was not good. Food was good, but not as good as it was the previous Saturday night when I was there. The salmon dish didn't have the asparagus on it and the cauliflower mash wasn't nearly as robust. One of the meals salmon wasn't cooked enough and the kitchen did not bring it back until the rest of the table had eaten and we had to ask for it. I had to take it to go. They didn't bring us a carryout bag per requested and it just down from there. I had heard from several other people that the service was horrible but my experience the previous Sat. had been very positive. Now I get it. They did remove the salmon that I had to take out from the bill but charged for the dessert I took home. Very negative experience, which was disappointing, as the food was so good.

We visit Lexington often, and Graze is the most consistent for service and food quality. Brad behind the bar is a wizard. Just tell him your tastes and he will make something sublime.

The place is lovely. The food was great. The service was great. The noise level was awful. I might have thought I was in a sports bar on game night. I thought we were going to a fine dinning restaurant. It was noisy in general but the four top next to us did not know how to talk in a normal conversational tone. They yelled about everything they said. We were there with another couple and could not carry on a conversation with them. I asked if we could move to another table and was told we could but then another party was seated at that table before we could be moved. I was truly disappointed with the evening.

The food was good, but I'm vegetarian, and there were not many choices! I would go back because I did like the spinach salad, but I'm not sure I could get my husband to return to a meal there, as the noise level was terrible, and it annoyed him the whole time we were there...

Food quality was good, but the price/value equation here on my 3 visits leaves a bit to be desired. Small bowl of lamb dish was mostly gnocchi and $30. Previous trip: salmon appetizer also disappointing - mostly bread, very little salmon. Think they have the potential to be very good, just having some growing pains in the moment. Will give them another try.

Food was excellent as usual. However, this new location as nice as it is , has obviously driven prices upwards.

The menu hasn’t changed since the Combs Ferry Rd days which in my opinion made it a better experience.

I love the atmosphere and the service was fine. I have been here three times. I've had two wonderful meals and the last time, everything was overcooked. The starter was good ( fries with toppings ), but the main course was dry and flavorless. My expectation was sadly not what I had experienced previously. It was like they stopped trying. Please raise the quality again and I will be there! The price needs to reflect the quality and it was over priced for what was on the table this time.

If you go as a couple they will probably sit you at a 2 top that is basically in the walkway from the kitchen to the bar. Expect traffic all the time. Our waitress never told us about the specials though she did to the couple behind us. The food was very good as always. This was our first time at the new location and the ambiance is a little more fine dinning. Enjoyed the meal and will go again but probably not with only 2 people.

The Carolina fries are AMAZING - must get!! They also have really great dinner entrees - I had the braised lamb shank and it was delicious. The bolognese is also very good. Really great value for the price.

We tried Graze for the first time for our 2nd wedding anniversary. It had been on our list for a while, so definitely a lot of build up. The menu changes frequently, so you aren’t able to see the menu beforehand which is annoying for me because I like to dream about the food for days before I go! For drinks, the beer menu was very weak... pretty much all IPAs. Would have been nice to have a few more local options like West Sixth Amber or Country Boy Cougar Bait. For the appetizer, we tried the Poutine. If I could change anything about the dinner, I wouldn’t have gotten this. The entrees were soooo good and this was very underwhelming, I chalked that up as a mistake. We both had pasta- Seafood Linguine and Bolognese. YUM! Dessert was amazing too... hot donuts! Service was great. Server had a lot of good recommendations and was attentive. It was VERY loud, I couldn’t focus on my date because I could hear the guy behind him plain as day. Overall, very good food. We will be back!

This location was one of our favorites when it was under different management but we decided to give it a try because of the patio seating and chef.
Graze has a wonderful menu; something for every taste. The wait staff is excellent and carefully explained the dishes. I had the arugula salad with pistachios, goat cheese and balsamic dressing. My friend had the beef burrito. We both had the cheesecake that didn’t need the hot fudge, coconut or banana slices but it was an interesting combination nonetheless. And don’t pass up a cup of coffee. The waitress didn’t know the brand but it was ohh so good. We will be returning.

Graze has been a favorite of mine since moving to Lexington. I like the old venue even though it was a bit small. This weeks visit was my first in the their new venue, and I was thoroughly impressed.
The food was great. Same great favorites on the menu, plus some new ones. I will be back.
