Grasing’s, located in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, lies along the Pacific Coast in Central California in Monterey County. It is 120 miles south of San Francisco, 70 miles south of San Jose and 350 miles north of Los Angeles. Celebrity chef partners, Kurt Grasing and Narsai David, truly created a gem. Fancifully designed in warm hues and modern art work, Grasing’s sets the stage for entertaining that is at once festive and intimate. From friendly and professional service, an award winning wine list and seasonally inspired cocktails to the fresh and sustainable local ingredients are only a few reasons why Grasing’s still receives rave reviews from the press. Just recently, Grasing’s was awarded “Restaurant of the Year” and “Business of the Year” by the Carmel Business Association. Chef Grasing was also honored recently by the American Culinary Federation and received an award for “Chef of the Year”.

Wonderful time, great menu, great food but a little overdone.

Great restaurant! My husband and I checked out all of the busy restaurants in Carmel on Sunday, the last of our 4 nights on our 30th anniversary weekend. Grasing's was busy and inviting from the minute we stood at the front door. We waited in the cocktail area where the server was friendly and... read more

We ate here on our last night in Carmel by the Sea. This is a very elegant restaurant which provided us with some of the best food we had on our 12 day Californian trip. The staff were friendly and provided everything we needed and I would highly recommend a visit.

Celebrated our 40th anniversary at Grasling's in style. Paula was our waitress. She was amazing. I was astonished at her attention to detail. From hearts to champagne to fresh caught fish to sorbet and seated in a bay window as the sun was setting, we celebrated in style.

My wife and I had dinner here and really enjoyed it despite a couple of small issues. The room is beautiful and comfortable and the service was great. Exceptional wine list but our red wine was cold which is understandable if it is being stored properly in a temperature controlled cellar. If you are having red wine, you may want... More

Had dinner at Grasing's a couple of days ago with a small group of friends. Beautiful place, outstanding service and a world class dinner. We greatly enjoyed it and will be back for sure!

This is our favorite restaurant in Carmel. The fare is always delicious and consistent. Love the outdoor seating with covered patio. They are great with your small dogs.

Grating's was a very nice restaurant however the waiter didn't bring what I ordered but brought what he thought I wanted. The steak was very good but he got confused with the sides. I couldn't get through their extensive wine list so asked for help. Their very helpful Sommelier helped select a wine in my price range. When I mentioned... More

My wife and I were looking for the best seafood lunch restaurant in Carmel and Trip Advisor suggested Grasing's. We called and found out there was no waiting and headed there on a recent Saturday afternoon trip to the Monterey Peninsula. We both decided to try the daily fresh fish specials and they were outstanding. I had the Blackened Swordfish... More

Sat in the bar lounge at a window seat table. Cosy. But probably may be noisy at night. Great view of street for people watching. Good corner location in one of the main side streets. Ordered the crab cakes ( on waiter's recommendation ) and onion rings ( a firm favourite ). Both were mouth wateringly delicious. The crab cakes... More
