I took my mom here recently when she came in to town, and we had a really nice meal together. The wait staff was very attentive and the food came out at a fairly good pace. I like Grants because there's not a real din when you are trying to have a meal and have a conversation with someone like... More

After living in a small city like Bryan, OH. for fourteen years; coming to a place like West Hartford, CT. has nearly proven to be a “Foodie’s delight”. Whether a Foodie or not, most people would agree that first and foremost in any type of area relying on any amount of tourism, food definitely plays an essential part, and Farmington... More

We dropped in after a medical appointment to try their Tuesday oyster special. What a treat this turned out to be. We were seated at a nice booth, promptly served ice water and delicious ParkerHouse rolls. Waiter said oysters were just being delivered and he'd find out what they were. Turned out they were from Orleans, MA and absolutely delicious.... More

Our son and D-I-L gave us a give card for Grants. We didn't know much about the restaurant but decided to give it a try. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambiance was enjoyable (translation...we could actually have a conversation without shouting!). For appetizers, I had the fish taco and my...

Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. A little pricey but worth it. Parking by sticker machine a pain.

My husband and daughter and I decided to take a walk following dinner in West Hartford Center. We stopped for dessert on Grants outside patio. It was a very lovely evening. We were welcomed to a full patio even though we were only ordering dessert and coffee. Our server was very attentive and the offerings were a perfect way to... More

Grant's is located in the heart of the food/retail area in West Hartford Center. It's definitely one of the finer restaurants. The great service starts with the hostesses and continues with the bar and wait staff. But the shining star of this place is definitely the food. The menu is filled with local/fresh/seasonal foods, all prepared exceptionally. We had filet... More

Great food, but the attitude served up here makes choosing Grant's for a great night out a non-starter. There are just way too many great restaurants in West Hartford to put up with that childish nonsense. The wait staff are mostly kids, too. Sorry, but I expect professional service when I am paying the premiums that Grant's charges

Great menu in Bistro setting eat in or out with sidewalk dining. Great lobster roll all meat and butter on grilled bun with no filling served with tomato/watermelon salad and be sure to ask for truffle fries. Great breast of duck served on corn salsa. Delicious desserts including homemade ice cream sundae big enough for three. Very pleasant waitstaff. Hostesses... More

When family came down for a visit we decided to go here instead of our usual place. We called ahead to make reservations as we have a party of eight. When we made the reservations we asked for a table outside, seeing the weather was finally warming up. They told us that they cannot promise an outdoor table. When we... More
