a pleasant return visit

We had not been to Grant's in several years. On this visit for dinner, we could not resist being seated outside. The evening was perfect for outside dining. Our meal did not disappoint.

The service and staff were very friendly and accommodating. However, the food was very overpriced, and to be honest, not that great. My steak was $38. The portion size was generous, but frankly, I've cooked a better steak. The baked potato and cheddar bread were again, nothing more than average. The restaurant was cramped. Parking was the biggest problem. I... More

I went for my birthday dinner last night and had never been before. I was expecting to be amazed considering how many people rave about this place, but honesty the food didn't amaze me but it was very good. Why did I give it only two stars? It's not worth the price. It is ALL overpriced. I paid $32 for... More

I love going to downtown West Hartford and hopping around all of the bars. My night usually begins or ends at Grants. However, lately, I've tried avoiding it. The bar area is extremely small and tight. They leave the bar stools at the bar, which take up more room. There are tables on the right side, which also take up... More

Party of four had four different entrees —all delicious. Server could not have been more friendly or accommodating. Lovely atmosphere and a wonderful evening.

I have wanted to get to Grants for years...have been to both Briccos and knew this would be delicious. I was not wrong! The service was very good - thanks Savanna! But it is all about the food here! The raw bar appetizer was superb - big shrimp and crab claws as well as some succulent clams and oysters -... More

This is a very good restaurant for a special occasion. We took my nephew and his girlfriend and we ate soup to nuts, the food was excellent, so was the staff. Be prepared to spend a bit, but it was the best Filet Mignon we had ever eaten.

The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was not bad but I was thinking of asking the waitress if she preferred being somewhere else rather than serve us. She didn't give me the impression that she was interested in our table. I had been to Grants on prior Sunday's and I found the same level of interest. During... More

We went to Grant's for our anniversary expecting a classy, up-scale dining experience. We ended wishing we went somewhere else. We made reservations the night before for 6:00 on a Friday. Upon arriving, the bar scene was hopping. This was expected considering the time. The maître de took us to the booth right behind her stand, which of course is... More
