Overall, excellent. Food, service, atmosphere everything. This is a great place to take that special someone for a romantic dinner because they have the small private rooms for 2-4ppl that have a sheer curtain. If not in the romantic mood just sit at the bar or the main dinning area. The food I... read more

Flawless, from the decor, the drinks, the service, and the best was the food. This is our new go-to place. I don't mind paying for excellence, and it surpassed all expectations.

Every time I come back to the area this is my dinner choice. Literally for decades they've been getting it right. There's nothing new to add, tha salmon, the pasta, meatballs, stuffed mushrooms all are worth coming back for. Be it dinner at the bar, private table or dining room I will always return. What I won't do is order... More

My husband and I went here for my birthday and sat in a private booth. Our service was excellent and so was the food. The waitress was very professional. We made an early reservation for 530 so noise wasn't bad. The specialty drinks from the bar were very tasty. Will definitely be going back.

Why 2 stars, food - very good, service after we got seated good. Waiting 45 minutes for a reservation with a 90 year old mother standing at the bar. Bad taste Then to make sure the 3-4 drinks were paid for before showing us to our seats was nothing but a total lack of class. In the words of Jerry... More

Grico's Restaurant is one of our favorite local restaurants to dine at. Private booths make for a very intimate dining experience or if you prefer the dining room and bar area are more open with a great ambiance. Service is always very good, a reflection of owner Pats outgoing personality. Specials always include seasonal and fresh ingredients. The scallops are... More

I brought my fiancé here for our first visit for Valentine's Day since I've heard great things about it. The food was GREAT. The service was second to NONE. HOWEVER, from the moment we walked in to the place, it smelled like dirty dish water! The entire place, including our private booth smelled like we were IN the kitchen with... More

We were thrilled when Grico's reopened. We had excellent service, drinks and the food was amazing ( especially the delmonico!) We enjoyed the wine list ( everything is under $20). We also reserved a "booth" room which is private and perfect for a date night! Can't wait to go back!
