It is always a go-place for us. Great wine list. Food was excellent and the new dessert- gelato with House-made whipped cream doused with espresso- that was good! Love the staff- pleasant and helpful every time!

This is a nice restaurant with expensive food items. Given the night we were there was a slow night, the service was terrible... no place settings or silverware until we asked for them to eat our salads with. The house salad was not tasty but the ceasar salad was good. The food portions were also good. Overall, this restaurant offers low value for the price it charges.

I love the place for the service and the half-priced wine on Sundays. I learned today that they discontinued that. My dinner with a cocktail and a bottle of wine cost $95.00, NOT including the tip.

I am sad to say that I am scratching Grazie’s off my list until and unless they bring back the wine special again.

The kitchen staff took a long dinner break in the middle of our meal. It took an hour to be served in an empty restaurant because they were tired at 8pm because it had been busy for graduation weekend. Special limited menu also. Not great.

The hostess and wait staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was freezing. It was 66 degrees and we had to dine in our coats. I felt like the temperature made the experience unenjoyable. We dined on graduation day so the cost was $60 a person for the same meal that is served on the everyday dinner menu for less. The food was good, but way over priced.

Good food but not a lot otherwise to support. The service was really slow...we helped service our own tables by pushing dirty plates forward to table's edge (at request of server twice) and pulling our own silver/napkin from the next table when an extra was needed after food delivery. Nice staff though, but it was also a little odd when asking for a recommendation and hearing about what was NOT on the menu while the server sat on the edge of the table across the aisle to talk with us. The menu was a joke in terms of price gouging...$60/entres, the best of which should have been half the cost and the least of which a quarter. Four people cost us $400 with six drinks. The prices are understandably going to be elevated during graduation , but you have to step it up a little with the quality to offset this. They missed the boat.

Very rude service. We were ‘rushed’ through dinner and asked to leave, because they had other guests who they needed to sit. Considering this was my son’s graduation dinner, and the restaurant had a set menu for $60/person, I expected better quality of food and service. Don't go there during graduation weekend!

We've been ot Grazie in the past but not for a few years. There are so many choices of where to eat out in this community that we often only visit a place every few years. However, this time the food was not as good, the wait was really long for it even though there were only a handful of tables with guests when we came, and then there was the confusion with the Devour Btown event going on. The Devour Btown even was supposed to run through March 3, 2019, and when I made reservations I mentioned that this was why were were coming -- we spend a week discussing where to go out to dinner with a friend who was only in town for a short time. While the restaurant made good on the pricing and number of courses but after we had ordered several of us had to make different food selections because we were told the event was passed; it wasn't. That resulted in 3 of the 4 of us disappointed with what we had to eat. The table we were sat at was also very small. The saving grace was the wonderful server we had.

I had a confirmed reservation for a party of 12. “Table” was available upon arrival. Argumentative hostess refused to seat our non drinking handicapped guests until bar tab was closed for 3 within this group. There were two roundtables set up to accommodate 11 people that were at least 8 feet apart and comprised of 10 chairs.
6 ribeyes were ordered ALL severely undercooked regardless of temperature and extremely tough super thin. Turn on the outside raw on the inside. None were fully consumed. Don’t buy beef here....ever. Heavy garlic on pasta dishes but m told mussels were enjoyable. Waste of $700.00 and embarrassing to have taken colleagues here.

Food was overpriced for quality and quantity. Youre paying more for the ambiance and venue than the food (which i think should always take priority), but if thats your thing then its a good place for you. Good service though
