Description: 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.

Beautiful and relaxing. Not overstated. Service was perfect. The food was great. The atmosphere, food, service all added to one of the best dinners in a beautiful city

An ok restaurant, some bright spots, but in my book doesn't live up to the glowing reviews. The service is just ok... timing was a bit off, first courses arriving seconds after the amuse. Service staff seemed a bit stretched... took long while to place our order. The ambiance is nice, like the lighting a lot... and the bar area.... More

We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings, and the evening was terrific. The food was very good: the beet salad was great and the scallops were tasty, but the potato gnocchi were undistinguished and the duck was a bit heavy. But the meal itself was a lovely event that stretched over almost 3 hours. Our servers had... More

Great evening at Gracie's celebrating our anniversary. Loved the 5 course tasting with wine pairing. Would definitely go there again. Each course was enjoyable and the presentations were very appealing.

Since they were right around the corner from our downtown hotel, we walked by and happened to look at the menu. So we went back as a walk in and they accommodated us immediately even though they were busy. A nice sized place, but split up so it doesn't feel huge. A good wine list and nice menu, and this...

We had a wonderful meal here a year ago and returned to Providence hoping to repeat it. We did have a good meal and will try again next year but I left disappointed. For my entree I didn't see anything "exciting" on the menu and finally picked the rib eye thinking I might get a good one here. Most people... More

If the service had been any slower we would still be there waiting for our appetizer. Even excellent quality food as at this restaurant cannot make up for very lousy service. They combined glacial pace of service with arrogance. Will never return and would not recommend.

My friend and I received a gift for a five course chef tasting with wine pairing.. Our waitress was attentive to us throughout the meal. She started by asking our likes, dislikes, allergies etc..Each course was tailored to us individually. The food was like a taste explosion!!!! Upon leaving, the valet left a little gift in our car; homemade chocolate... More

I took my daughter, grandson and granddaughter to Gracies last night to celebrate my granddaughter, Grace's, 18th birthday. Alan was our wonderful waiter who greeted us with a toast for her and ended by a candle on her amazing creme brûlée. The attention to detail truly makes it a 5 star restaurant. The duck was to die for. I get... More

The food was delicious and creative and it is always fun to have them choose the wine. They were able to accomodate my "fishitarian" wife without a problem. My only complaint was the service. They have a team that is supposed to wait on your table but no one seemed to be in charge. Who takes the drink order? Who... More
