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

Grissini is a restaurant that consistently serves good food. It has a lively bar in front that can get rather busy. The bronzino is prepared beautifully and is delicious. The only negative is that it can be a little loud.

Service is excellent. Valet parking is great to have. Caesar salad and meatball appetizer was excellent. However, one of there most expensive entrees Dover Sole was poor. It was dry and a very skimpy dish. Cheesecake was nothing special

Everything we ate was fantastic, tuna tartare was great and the pappardelle with lobster and crab meat was fantastic. Tiramisu was good, not great. Brought home a cannoli for my wife and it was great. Wine list was good and had something for every palate and pocket. Service was very good, valet parking issue was strange since I had never...

Grissini is one of the few decent restaurants around town, so my husband and I continue to go back every couple of months, but we usually leave with a so-so feeling each time. We were going weekly for a little while hoping to be treated a little better, but they have their regulars and we keep getting seated in the... More

Owned a home by this restaurant when it first opened in the 90's and was the happening place. I have been there a few times since than but not for at least 3 years. I brought my wife and child before a Bergen PAC show and was beyond disappointed. My clam appetizer was large tough cherrystones ( instead of little... More

I was taken to this restaurant by a few of my business colleagues. Arrived at around 5:15 for dinner, seated immediately. Although we walked to the restaurant, I found it funny that there was mandatory valet even though they parked the cars right out front?! Some ordered pasta others the veal. Waiters were attentive and friendly. Food was hot and... More
