Delish!

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... read 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.

We went to Grato for a business dinner on a Wednesday. We ordered Fried Calamari for the table and it was amazing. Perfectly seasoned, fresh tasting and overall delicious. We were 16 so everyone ordered different entrees and not one person had anything bad to say. I must say it was really good. The only reason I did not give... More

I had been here once before for lunch about a year ago. I liked it very much. This visit I did take out. Appetizer, salad and pizza = $45. Ouch! Especially since I wasn't overly impressed with the food. Eggplant rollatini was just ok. The pomadore sauce was tasty. The seafood salad was good, but on the small side. The... More

Visited Grato for the first time Jan. 16 with a friend. We sat at bar and ordered dinner to dine at bar. Bartenders/waiters were very inviting, friendly, and knew their food and drinks inside out. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. It was such a nice change of pace to hear wait staff able to describe any dish we asked... More

Ok, now. I am four months past the " un-birthday " review. Gave Grato another chance as it is in our neighborhood AND, more importantly, we were asked to do so by the professional hospitality staff. Never better. We all acknowledged the dismal last visit but the professional hospitality staff outdid themselves tonight. Service was great; food was hot and... More

Came for lunch and was served by two very polite waiters. I had the Pancetta pasta dish and my companion had the salmon. Both dishes were amazing. Also had the Red Velvet Cheesecake for desert....another great choice. You can't go wrong at the Grato. Great food and great service.

One of the best restaurants, hands down. The food is very, very good, the staff are truly wonderful, and the atmosphere is great. They are always so sweet to me and my husband and it's the one place nearby that I can guarantee I will have a great meal at, every single time.
