Great Service

We had a group of six for a New Years Eve dinner. Everybody ordered something different. The appetizers and soups were outstanding. The rolls they serve are to die for. The wine list is good, but a little pricy. We had a very nice Cab for $68. Everyone enjoyed their meals except the person... read 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

Six of us ordered 6 different Brunch items and all were more than pleased. We sat in a circular booth with chairs at the end and it was perfect for conversation! The ambience of both the dining room and bar was great, and the lighting just right. We had never been in this area before, and Grants was recommended by... More

We stopped in for a nice lunch with family. The food was very tasty however our waiter was difficult to find at times. I ordered the regular cheeseburger with fries and had to return the plate when I first received it because the fries were cold. In fact all three dishes that had fries had been sitting around in the... More
