Established in 1998, Gracie’s was founded with a vision to offer fine food and personal attention to all. Started on Providence’s Federal Hill, Gracie’s quickly outgrew its 30-seat location and moved to the Downcity Theater District in 2005. The new space offers a cozy wine room, a stunning private dining room and greater seating capacity. Although Gracie’s has grown in size it remains true to it’s mission -- to create a warm environment, and to surprise, excite and educate the palate.

Great as always

We just visited Gracie’s during July Providence Restaurant week (3-course dinner for $34.95). And it was great as always: outstanding food, beautiful presentation of the food on plates, great service, and nice ambiance. No cutting corners. Great job!

Food was superb. Fresh and local. Service was excellent, caring and personal! Chef came out and met us! One of our top ten places! Love to get back!

We have been going to Gracie's for years, ever since the restaurant arrived at its current location. The food never fails to please, and is often surprisingly good, even to old hands. Most recently, a fire alarm in an adjacent building required everyone to step out onto the sidewalk, but the serving staff were ready with hastily-poured glasses of bubbly.... More

I have been to Gracie's multiple times now and if you are having trouble deciding on a restaurant in Providence, I hope this helps. Gracie's is indeed expensive, but the value in the food and the atmosphere far outweighs the cost. You can order off of the menu, but to truly appreciate Gracie's I highly recommend the tasting menu.

Service was exceptionally slow. While the first and dessert course of the set menu were good, the second was "meh" as was the overall experience. The very slow service (even for drinks and a bread basket) and pushy wait staff, who practically forced drinks on us seemingly at the direction of their manager, definitely detracted from any enjoyment.

Have gone several times. Must do the chef's tasting! Excellent service & great food. Would not order off menu as it takes away from the whole reason to go. This place is a gem and is more than just dinner.....a true dining experience!

I took my fiancé to Gracie's after popping the question earlier in the day and it was outstanding. Everything was 5 stars from the valet to the food and service. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne that was accompanied with a congratulations. We decided on the 3 course meal which I believe is the best way to go.... More

Very classy yet food is really yummy. Presentation is always excellent. The menu never fails to amaze me every season. The servers are always attentive. I always enjoy business dinners or date nights here.

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. From the eclectic menu to the hip vide to the solid service, this restaurant is a winner. I has the sweetbreads and highly recommend you try them. A must stop every time I'm in Providence.
