Great atmosphere and very good food.

We go to Grato several times a year, I've always liked the food and the environment but it is a bit pricey for pasta. Their other dishes are also excellent and service is first-rate.

A favorite go-to spot: attentive service, quality of food, nice atmosphere. Something in the cuisine has changed, however. Whether it's new leadership/direction in the kitchen or further up the proverbial food chain, favorite go-to dishes have changed/morphed and differ in taste, style, presentation. Short story: food was better on the last occasion. Similar sentiments from two dinner companions, while the... More

I consistently have a lovely dinner each time I'm there. One of the things I really appreciate is their ability to provide 2 half portions which enables me to try 2 different dishes.

When the manager of a restaurant gives you a gift card for future use, it's not a good sign. The food at Grato is good, but not great. The service was poor. We went for an early dinner so they were not crowded. There were several other patrons, so it's not like we were catching them between shifts. Like their... More

Although we had to wait 30 minutes for someone to come to our table so we could order and the place at the time was empty. And although there was a 2" piece of twine baked into the topping of my pizza and the bathroom had no toilet paper the pasta and pizza were good tasting. Advise: don't go between... More

My mom loves this place and she is partial to sitting at a four top way in the back so she can see the whole dining room and she LOVES the music - very heavy of the Sinatra!! The three of us split of nice bottle of red. All the food we had was very good. My tuna entree was... More

Group of about 10. Great private area. Decor is warm and inviting. Bruchetta was very good as was the calamari. My entree was not bad but not great orechiette. My dining buddies had fettucini (dry with no flavor), short rib lasagna (just okay - too much tomato sauce versus short rib meat sauce) and tuna. All agreed that this was... More

Everything was just ok. I don't mind prices but I expected more. Very small portions. Not kid friendly at all

Stopped here for lunch with customers recently. They were familiar with the restaurant, and made the recommendation - and I'm glad they did. I started with one of the "specialty teas", which I highly recommend. They also do specialty lemonades, or 50/50 "Arnold Palmer" mixes. For lunch I had the cobb salad, and it was wonderful. This was a very... More
