    Food was wonderful but what made our experience was the service we had. We had the best server. when we walked in the door, she was the first one to greet us. We had a private booth which was awesome and the same woman came over to wait on us. We have lots of questions which was happy to answer and never got annoyed . Best service we had ina long time!

    Excellent menu, delicious food, and attentive service. Only reason for the <5 star review is because I requested a private booth and though we were sat in one, it was right outside the kitchen, which has no door. Very loud environment. You could hear the staff and the sound of kitchenware throughout the whole meal. Not the most romantic. They should really remove that table entirely.

    Excellent experience up to the same high quality standards set by all the Friedman Electric Hospitality Group fine dining restaurants across the area. This particular restaurant probably has the longest history. It was THE place to see and be seen on the West Side of Pittston for the last 100+ years. Although during Prohibition, Grico’s was strictly BYOB. 🍷🍸🍹

    The food is always on point here. The menu has many choices and all are outstanding. The service was a bit slow for mid week but overall you cannot go wrong with a meal at Grico's! If you can get a booth in the back it makes it an even better dining experience if you are on a date.
