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”.

“Special Occasion or any night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

My daughter and I really enjoyed the steak and chanterelle mushrooms. The staff was very attentive. I do not drink but they have an extensive wine and spirit list. Nice for a special celebration.

“Friendly service, nice atmosphere on the patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Lovely atmosphere. Good service. Food is fresh and tasty. The Mai Tai's are delicious, but lethal. Definitely worth a stop in Carmel.

“This is one of our favorites in Carmel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have always had outstanding service at Grasing's. The food is always amazing and fresh. We travel with our dog and they are always happy to see her and bring her a water bowl and dog treats.

“Please cut the meat off the bone...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Another dog friendly restaurant. What made this dinner so memorable were our dog loving fellow diners. One man at the table next to us shared pictures of his dog.

And the couple at another table were sad about having left their dogs at home (They were from South Africa) so the woman offered our Aussie the rest of her veal chop. I jokingly said that our dog, "Only eats meat that's cut from the bone."

The woman then sliced off the rest of the veal and put it on her bread plate and placed it in front of our very grateful dog.

The food was delicious for us humans but the friendliness of our fellow patrons is what will remain an indelible memory.

“Bar Only”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We did not eat at the restauarant though it looks fantastic...i'ts on our list for the next visit to Carmel.

We did sit at the bar. Great energy. Great bartender who mixed up something custom for my wife that she really enjoyed. He knew quite a bit about the local wine scene and was quite engaging.

We ordered the truffle popcorn sitting up there which went perfect w/the drinks before dinner.
