Lovely function spot!

Attended a lovely Bridal Shower luncheon here. Service was very attentive, but not smothering. Food was delicious and served at convenient times during function activities. We did not feel "rushed" during the afternoon. Chicken parm was tender and delicious as was the chocolate molten cake... read more

Food was wonderful, but the service was deplorable. Asked for a sample of a wine, which I was brought, but no one ever came back and asked if it was okay and if I wanted a glass of wine. Asking for water was a chore. There were no bread plates/knives. When one of us asked for bread plate, they only... More

The staff was great. Very attentive. The appetizer of crispy shrimp over arugula with a light vinegar dressing was good. They might consider a warning that the shrimp were REALLY hot (cooking from frying - not spicy) which was unexpected on a cold salad. The pasta is horrible. Penne does not looked like over-sized elbows. Aldente does not mean NOT... More

I love this place, the service and the pasta! My favorite dish is My Friends Orecchiette. Just a nice treat to find a place that has the atmosphere, service and delicious food all in one. They make their own pasta! A great Italian place you should definitely try out. I keep coming back. Excellent for date night, business dinners/lunches, a... More

I've wanted to try this restaurant for a long time now and today I finally had the chance to. Now I wish I had just gone straight home and ate leftovers instead. My grilled shrimp were absolutely disgusting and my dish had to be sent back. Management came over to apologize and ask if they could make me something else,... More

My husband and I just moved to this area coming from Europe and really enjoyed this first visit at Grato. We'd definitely go again. We liked the interior decor and atmosphere. A bit of music but not too loud, and despite big family tables around us, it wasn't noisy, thanks to glass door partitions. We had a great lunch on... More

A real deception about this place ... We expected that an Italian restaurant is a clear secured choice and finally even if you are ready to spend money, the dishes were disappointing. Calamari were OK Shrimps were overcooked on a ton of pasta badly cooked and swimming in creamy oil personal was aggressive as if you were disturbing them ...... More

Warm atmosphere with wonderful food. The staff is helpful and friendly. I love a place that lets you enjoy your meal without feeling rushed. This may sound picky, but I love that do not pick up plate until everyone at the party has finished eating. In addition (again a pet peeve) They do not open a new bottle of wine... More

Would we go back - Nope. Went on a Sunday evening and it wasn't very busy. Chicken Parmesan was tough, Chicken Francese was pretty much the same. Paid extra for getting pasta instead of broccoli rabe but was never told it was extra. Brussel sprouts and broccoli rabe were the vegetables that nobody ate. When I asked for capellini pasta...

Same owners. Food also good but completely different than Tabor's menu & interior. As the name implies, Grato meaning cellar, the interior walls are of stone. The openness allows one to view the long line of chefs from most tables should that be someones interest. The bar is small but cozy.
