Solid... but the prices suggest amazing

Went for a Biz lunch. After looking at the Website, I was expecting a real dining experience. Though the food was well prepared and presented, and the service was good, it fell well short of "Spago of the East" as they boasted on their website. I had the pasta dish... Shrimp in cognac sauce... read more

Having driven by the restaurant for years without ever visiting, we finally went for a special Valentine's Day dinner. I expected a little more ambiance. There is an open kitchen with several tables across from the counter, We were lucky enough not to have to sit at one of those tables. If you are going to make reservations, ask that... More

Consistently delicious food. Classic Italian cuisine - brick oven pizzas- grilled seafood and meats. Creative pastas. Professional and attentive service.

I've been to Grissini numerous times -- several times since my first post in 2012. It's still "just OK" in my opinion. Perhaps it's "tastes" as I have a few friends who like it. None who rave about it though. Me, I just think the food is average. I don't get a lot of flavor, tastes, etc. It's just OK.... More

Food and service were ***** ! What more to say. Only beware the weird entrance for parking. You need to enter at the corner and slip in front of the entrance, becasue the parking lot entrance appears to be closed. This is to force valet parking only there. OK, upper crust place, upper crust service... upper crust prices... (my friend... More

Had my annual holiday luncheon today with my 22 employees at Grissini's. Was promised a private room but instead shared the room with other office celebrations. Had our luncheon specifically later in the afternoon to avoid the crowds. Our 22 employees were squeezed in to one long table with two on each end. If you had your back to the... More

We were a party of seven. Everyone's food was good and hot. It is a bit pricey. I would go back next time I am in the area.

Food was good but portions small and prices high. But most of all, service was horrendous. Waiter ignored us most of the evening and when he finally brought our meal he messed up something at each course. My wife never did get to eat her main course as when it finally arrived, everyone else had finished. While the restaurant did... More

Consistently excellent food. Always feel welcome here- prefer the less visible back room. The scene up front is as unappealing as the showy cars in front- but the reason to be here is the fine cuisine
