There are not many restaurants that care as much about their food as Grappa, and even fewer that have servers like Renaldo who are so passionate about the cuisine that you want to order every dish on the menu. The Ropa Vieja is not like any you have had before, it is a mix of the classic Cuban dish with... More

I don't think I've seen a place in the New World which reminded me more of Europe. Grappa is intimate, and a little past the center of the action on Dorado's main drag. I had the best mojito I think I've had in Puerto Rico, aranchini, frutti di mare in garlic sauce, and bananas foster. This is top notch Italian... More

We did a reservation on Friday January 15 2016 at 10:42pm by phone... Next day we dress up to the occasion of a much needed romantic dinner, on our way called to say we were a little late and with no manners at all they let us know there were NO reservations made by our name or telephone. They did... More

From the beginning, 0 parking... The place is realy nice and the service is great. Bad things: Overpriced 100%... if you ask for water be advice that you should be really thirsty. They will bring a 24oz bottle (no notice). If you are sitted next to a table be aware that the waitress will be rubbing his/her bud the entire... More

I guess I don;t see what all the fuss is about. We arrived for our reservation and were seated at a wobbly table. When the waitress couldn't fix it, she apologized and said we woulod just have to manage. The place was 75% empty and we asked to movge. She said that all of the other tyables were for reservations,... More

I heard about this restaurant several years ago and finally made it last December. It’s a very nice, cozy and friendly Italian restaurant. You have to make reservations because it’s very small and its always very busy. I really love the food and the atmosphere. Since I went on December they implemented the traditional Puertorican dishes/flavor into the Italian culture.... More

We went to Grappas seeing that it was #1 according to Trip Advisor. Our waiter, sorry I don't recall his name, helped us with our wine and food selections. He recommended a very nice red as well as the Bastales , a family recipe, risotto de mare and the fra diavolo. All was very good but I didn't get any... More

The restaurant manager told us that we didn't have a reservation because they apparently got too busy. Sure I've heard the food is good, but why deal with a rude staff full of excuses.
