Decided to give this restaurant a try and glad I did! What I liked: SERVICE: Had as person working the drinks, had another person working the food. Both, very attentive and friendly and helpful with the menu. Had the manager come around and introduce herself and made sure everything was ok. AMBIENCE: Great place to sit at the bar and... More

Ate here with a group of friends. Shared the meatball appetizer and they were outstanding. The pizzas are too big for one and are very fresh The pasta is homemade and excellent. The staff was very attentive.

My husband and I wanted to try a restaurant we had never been to and ended up at Grato. The ambiance and decor was very inviting. The wait staff was very good, although with so many coming to the table it was a little confusing on who is actually your server, not a big deal for us. We had the... More

Great atmosphere and service, but my wife is a foodie and she was not impressed. Prices didn't match the quality in my opinion.

My family chose Grato for special special occasions as the food, service and ambience is top notch and casually elegant. First course starters and entrees are consistently well prepared. And waitstaff are trained, attentive and know their menus. Last night, celebrating my daughter's graduation was no different. "My friend orrichetto", "ricotta ravioli" - all pastas are freshly made daily. Delicious.... More

Was there for business dinner and ordered a prefix menu. Food, service, vine, desert - everything was great. Valet parking is free and fast, but please do not forget to tip :-)

This place keeps getting better. Had the chicken Marsala (off menu) and this was so incredibly good that I dreamed about it. Perhaps the best chicken I've ever had. Everyone was thrilled with their dishes and the service, as usual, was A plus.

Have been to this place a few times, but my last 2 visits have not been good. Not sure if there is a new Chef? But whoever is making the Linguini and Clam Sauce is struggling, No Broth with a White Clam Sauce? The seating was awful, couples pushed up against the wall and still no space for the waiters...

I've previously reviewed Grato and felt the evening deserved a 3 rating, but commented that it could easily be a 4 rating on any other night. Tonight was that night. I had the opportunity to dine there for my anniversary. I started with an escarole and bean soup which was very good and left plenty of broth to soak up... More
