Graziella Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
It started out fine... the service was good and the appetizers were fine... it all went downhill when my daughter received her meal: a lamb “agnello” dish... she smarted at the taste of the meat... my mom took a small bite of the lamb... instant dislike...
At $39 Canadian, I was not about to let the meal go, but one bite was enough to convince me that they were right... it was clearly “off”.
We’re Italian and lamb is a staple; we know what good lamb should taste like!
I told the waiter that the lamb tasted “off”. He sent the dish back and within 1 min returns stating “I’m sorry, but the Chef says there’s nothing wrong with the Lamb...”
Ok... so my daughter has nothing to eat? Are you kidding me? thankfully, my mom was unable to finished her osso buco and shared her dish. At the end of the meal, I asked for the check and voilà! The Lamb is on the bill!
I kindly stated to the waiter “you didn’t take this off the bill?” He says “Sorry, but I cannot”... so I replied “Sorry, but I cannot tip you if this (dish) remains on bill”.
I paid, sans tip, and proceeded to leave.
The waiter was clearly upset and was speaking to the captain on what transpired... I quickly interjected, telling the captain what happened and he replied “this is fresh, Quebec lamb!”...translation “I’m an idiot”...
I took offense... and told him in Italian (hey it’s an Italian restaurant no?). Every dish was fine except the lamb... 3 people can’t be wrong... but you want to take me for the fool? Sorry, you’re the fool!
Honestly, if this happened in NYC, I would’ve been compensated for the dish... whether it’s a new dish to replace the original order; free dessert for the table; a bottle of wine on the house... something... but nothing was done...
So, if you’re in the mood for fine cuisine with a touch of arrogance and complete disdain for the customer, then by all means, enjoy!
Nous étions 4. On a monté une facture de 481$. Le serveur nous a offert la Limoncello et la Grappa après le repas. Gentil de sa part mais nous avons constaté qu'il nous l'a chargé. À part le vin à la bouteille, le prix des apéros et des digestifs nous sont cachés, drôle de façon de faire. J'ai amplement les moyens de me payer votre Resto mais offrir le digestif (c'est ainsi que le serveur nous l'a présenté) est la moindre des choses et chose commune dans les grands restos. Ce ne fut pas un WOW! Qualité Prix, c est exagéré. Malheureusement ce sera une première et une dernière. Quand on n en n'a pas pour son argent...
An absolutely fantastic experience. Loved the food. Loved watching the kitchen at work and loved the surroundings.
I had what I think was the best Osso Bucco I have ever had. Served with delicious, perfectly cooked risotto and a wonderfully balanced sauce this was veal shin at it’s best. It fell off the bone and the marrow, melted over the risotto was fantastic.
My wife’s veal chop was huge, and accompanied by perfectly roasted seasonal veg. The chop delicious.
We indulged in both the cheese Board and and a desert. The cheese was in great condition and my cannoli was great.
Couldn’t fault the place. Just a shame it’s about 4000 miles from my home so sadly I can’t become a regular.
Le rapport quantité/qualité/prix n'était pas au RDV. LE fait de devoir payer un supplément sur le menu du midi pour avoir une petite tranche de Mozarella di Buffalo c'était un peu trop je pense. Les ravioli étaient délicieuses mais auraient pu être accompagnées. Le dessert était très bon mais je ne sais pas si celui-ci valait 10$ de supplément et 20 min d'attente.
We chose Graziella for one of our special dinners during our fiftieth anniversary trip to Montreal and it was a perfect choice. The service was attentive, the food and wine were fabulous, and the ambiance was lovely. We loved the zuccini blossom appetizer and the osso bucco, 2 of the signature dishes. We ate in a number of highly rated restaurants during our six day visit and this was our favorite. We give it our highest rating and we hope to return soon.
We went with friends to celebrate our anniversaries expecting excellent food. What we got was an absolute culinary experience that took Italian dishes to a refinement that can only be described as exquisite . Every dish had a perfect blend of seasoning leaving no overpowering taste, but A well-balanced flavourful mouthful with every bite. The service was excellent with Adamo taking care of us with his professionalism knowledge and savoir-faire that just complemented the dining experience. All in all , an absolute perfect dining night out. Highly recommended for any occasion.
We enjoyed our special seat by the window. Thanks, Open Table! Our other reservation made on Open Table provided us with another lovely window view. Our food and service were excellent. I had their 2 signature dishes, beet salad & oso bucco-A real treat. My husband had an excellent rack of lamb.
We definitely enjoyed our meal. The beef carpaccio was the best I've ever had. We both got the lobster pasta which was good, but it did not blow my mind. The dessert was also very good. We'd recommend it but it was a bit pricey for what you get.
We were promptly greeted by our Server Sam, who was amazing. We ordered our martinis and he was off and had them on the table in no time at all. He was bright, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We told him we wanted a relaxed meal and he managed that brilliantly. Sam was extremely knowledgeable of the wine list and had great recommendations to go with our food. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented. The menu has good choices and is Italian inspired. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the noise level perfect. But Sam was the best and we would go back in a minute. It just goes to show you that your server sets the tone and ambiance for your evening. I wish that there were more Sam's in the world with the passion for food and wine and serving guest.
Nous avon's aimez notre experience. L acceuil et le service par notre serveur Sam était excellente. J ai apprecier qu' il parle anglais à mon époux et moi en français. Le décor et athmosphere était très chaleureux. Le repas était excellent et notre dessert (cannoli) était superbe. Nous retournerons certainement pour essayer le poisson.
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to try this place. It turned out to be a really great experience. The waiter was phenomenal. Took the time to explain some things to us and was very attentive but did not hover. Time of delivering drinks, appetizers and main course could not have been better.
Really enjoyed the entire evening. I had the fish which was outstanding and my wide had a pasta dish that was extremely fresh. The pasta was aldente the way it should be.
We dined at Graziella last night and i have mixed feelings. The food was decent (minus the gnocchi which was severely overpriced for what it was).
The service was strange...it took a good 10 min to even get any attention after being seated. 30 min to get a food menu, needless to say we almost got up and left. We stayed because of the ratings I read about the food.
The food was decent but to me maybe not all of it was worth the price I paid. The ambiance...well...lots of older men in suits talking about politics haha.
Overall, probably wouldn't go back but wasn't a horrible experience. I'm just sure there's better.
We went to Graziella as part of a short vacation in Montreal and were not disappointed. From the wine suggestion for both of us, which we enjoyed enough to take a photo of the bottle, to the very last morsel of dessert, our meal was wonderful. I wasn't going to order pasta, but when the lobster spaghetti came to the table next to us, it smelled so delicious that it put me into a swoon and I had to have it. A great waiter and a lovely evening!
Northern Italian ? Definitely not Southern. Lots of cheese and slim on the vegetables. We were shocked that a green salad was not available. The burrata special for two, came with two slices of tomato and enough cheese for four. Plus $35.00? Service was very professional. Entrees were good, if not remarkable. One and done.
Wonderful restaurant in Montreal. My wife and I both enjoyed our evening. My wife had an entree of spaghetti with lobster and dessert pie that our server mentioned was a house specialty. Both were rated by my wife as "one of the best that she has ever eaten". The atmosphere is charming and service first rate.
