Blah

Afternoon lunch with the wife. Received $50 voucher from holiday inn. The voucher was used up in a hurray. The price of the food does not match the quality. We both agreed we shoulda went to milestones across the parking lot. Lesson learned.

Graffiti's served 25 family members on a Sunday evening. The atmosphere, wine and food were very good. Our server kept up with 25 guests at 3 tables with efficiency and a smile. Overall, we had a wonderful family celebration. Thanks Steve, Breanne and chefs for making our parent's 60th wedding anniversary so special!

I want to thank the Chef, Vanessa Nisbet (Lifford wine), Steven and Graffitis staff for another excellent wine and food pairing dinner. It was smaller but very intimate and the company of other guests were most enjoyable and fun. The food was superb and well paired with the wine!The wine had to be one of the best selections and taste... More

Food was excellent. Portions were filling. Fresh fruit was fantastic. Home-made berry jam was as good as I can make. Bacon was out of this world. Our sever was extremely pleasant. I was able to watch the cooks as they prepared the meals and they were efficient and worked well as a team. The price was moderate around $15 each... More

Went here with a group of friends on Valentines day. Food was very good, but the star was the service. Our server was on top of things all the way. She knew the menu intimately and could describe the dishes in detail. She knew her wine service as well, opening the bottle properly and pouring in the right order. All... More

We were first served complimentary fresh out of the oven, garlic loaf with a variety of dipping oils. Our appetizer was the crab cakes with mango salsa, and the flavor was mouthwatering. What a great pairing! Both meals were pastas; a pickled artichoke, eggplant penne and a clam, shrimp and scallop assortment in a pesto sauce. It really was the... More
