Great time with friends

We went as a group - three couples- and had a great time. We hung out at the bar and sipped some excellently prepared cocktails before sitting at a round table (love round for a group!). We did not feel rushed and the food was good to very good. Service became spotty at the closing of the meal... read more

Atmosphere is warm and upscale. Staff is knowledgeable yet sometimes a little slow to serve. Food quality alway consistent and top notch. Not the cheapest option out there but you get what you pay for. They never hesitate to create and serve items not listed on the menu, which is also nice. The portions are quality and not bulk. I've... More

My wife and I were in the mood for different things - I for steak, she for seafood. When a res at another nearby favorite fell through, we called Grissini and they took us right away. Great service, wonderful food, healthy choices as well as indulgent options, all perfectly cooked. We had our own wine with us and they were... More

Grisini's is an upscale Italian restaurant which is enjoyed by many regulars which if you are not one you can wait for a table at a small, crowded, pricey bar. While the food & service are quite good I have yet to feel comfortable here. Valet parking available.

I went to Grissini's with a client to have a working lunch and the tab for two turned out to be about $60 and that seemed to be about one-third of the dinner prices. Other than watching the prices, one can enjoy a wide variety of Italian dishes presented in beautiful manners. The restaurant is relatively small but I have... More

Perfect service. Perfect service. Perfect service. The food is excellent, the attention to details is impressive. The pastas, probably among the best i ever had in the East Coast.

I stumbled on Grissini on a business trip. The food and service are off the charts. After my first day I went back the next and the bartender remembered my name. Gotta love that.

All of us had great Apps and wonderful dinners They had a chicken dish with bone ons not those tasteless chicken cutlets that are often over cooked. Outstanding meal and excellent but not effusive The only thing I can complain about was that the specials were quoted with out prices. I hate that we had to ask for each dish.... More
