We happened to be in the city yesterday and it was restaurant week. We called late (around 1:40pm) and they said come on in. When we got there they said "did we have a reservation". We said "you said we did not need one". However, once we got to the table it was pure bliss. Ann Marie was our server... More

the place was super busy and it was right after the holidays so it may have been staffing. Brunch was good and worth the money.

Came here on a Saturday night for large birthday party, probably 20 people. Initially, we waited a few minutes by the empty host desk. When the host came around, I inquired about the party. He pointed towards the back of the restaurant and made a face as though we should have walked around ourselves to find the party instead of... More

We were there for lunch on a Friday. There were only two servers for the whole room so tables were not bussed and the servers were harried but very friendly and professional. Enjoyed the duck fat fries and the pork sandwich. My husband enjoyed the cheese platter and the charcuterie platter. Got some good jarred olive oil for takeout.

Love love love this place. The food is simply delish! All four of us really enjoyed our meal. Graces never fails us. We have been to his other restaurants and have always been very happy with the food, service, decor and the portions are perfect. Have to try this at least once!

I have been a Garces restaurant enthusiast since day one, so it makes saying what I have to say that much more difficult. I'm officially done with Garces Trading Company. Here's the thing, if you just want some good food, and you don't care about timing, whether you have your drinks at the same time as your food, or minimally... More

Enter a liquor store and eat dinner! Hardly an Iron Chef expectation. Not fine or elegant dining. The food was OK, but overpriced. My Steak & fries were good, but please don't slice the steak or put the bearnaise sauce all over it. I would not go back again.

Visited for brunch without a reservation and had to sit at the bar to make our show. The food was good, service decent, but didn't enjoy eating at the bar in general. Loved the opportunity to try and buy vinegar and oils.
