Description: Grasing’s, located in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, lies along the Pacific Coast in Central California in Monterey County. It is 120 miles south of San Francisco, 70 miles south of San Jose and 350 miles north of Los Angeles. Celebrity chef partners, Kurt Grasing and Narsai David, truly created a gem. Fancifully designed in warm hues and modern art work, Grasing’s sets the stage for entertaining that is at once festive and intimate. From friendly and professional service, an award winning wine list and seasonally inspired cocktails to the fresh and sustainable local ingredients are only a few reasons why Grasing’s still receives rave reviews from the press. Just recently, Grasing’s was awarded “Restaurant of the Year” and “Business of the Year” by the Carmel Business Association. Chef Grasing was also honored recently by the American Culinary Federation and received an award for “Chef of the Year”.

The food was divine! The steak and lobster - so good! The atmosphere delightful. The staff was fantastic! We were from out of town - we were made to feel like we were regular customers. Love this place!!!

“Quaint sophistication in the heart of Carmel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Grasing's is one of our favorite restaurants in Carmel. So, we may be slightly biased. We first visited Grasing's in November 2010. It was truly magical and the server, Mike, was exceptional. The food is just as amazing if not even better. We often have the calamari which is always crispy but tender and cooked just right. Today, I had the Black Angus Burger which isn't exactly sophisticated food. However, their burger is really off the charts. It is served on ciabatta bread with avocado, cheddar cheese, and bacon. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. My wife had the Alfredo fettuccine which was plentiful and flavored to perfection. This was from the lunch menu. The dinner menu is versatile and sophisticated. The setting feels like an old French home. The servers are very knowledgeable and really nice. If you go, you won't forget or regret it.

“A Fabulous Dining Experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This excellent restaurant establishment in the heart of Carmel's
shopping area was one of the best restaurant experiences I
remember. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent.
Nothing was too much to ask for.
